WILLOW CITY PLACES STRUCK BY LIGHTNING
Willow City, N.D., July 10.—During the heaviest rain in the history of this community when a fall of three inches was reported in five hours, the home of Dr. Youtz was struck by lightning. Mrs. Youtz was in the act of kindling a fire when the bolt came down the chimney and knocked the blazing match from her hand. Another bolt struck the belfry of the city school, and a third killed a valuable horse in Mayor Cooke's pasture.
