Telephone Call Wo. 80. Last Friday one of the hardest rain and hunder storms of the season occurred. HAMMOCK WEATHER. It started in to rain about a quarter to one in the afternoon, and for an hour and a half, with but slight cessation, it poured in torrents. With it were blinding lightning flashes and deafening thunder. Fresh New Muslin Underwear; That is what we are having. And the question naturally arises . Are you supplied with one?

OUR SODA FOUNTAIN The delegates to the County Convention were A. B. Ottaway, V. A. Kent, A. B. Culver, B. J, Hopkins, David House, L. W. Macomber, O. L. Ingalls, B. B. Parsons, Noah Burden and F. A. Hall. The touch of New York gives its wondrous charm even to the modest priced garments. There is neatness, refinement and sturdy goodness in even the low priced pieces. The description below is of garments with a dantiness and refinement not usually seen, not even at full prices. They illustrate the cardinal twin virtues of this movement, beauty that is tasteful, refined and original, coupled to a price that is far below such beauty's worth. Lightning struck in several places around the village and in the vicinity, but it did no great damage except in one place. That was at Lewis Waterman's on Bird street. Mr. Waterman had been oat in the rain long enough to get his clothing wet from the kfiee down. He ate dinner and lay down on the floor near the stove to read his paper, waiting for the rain to stop. His little girl took a pillow from a couch and lay down with him, putting the pillow under her father's head, and laid her head upon the other end of it, and put her arm around his'ntck. A stroke of lightning struck somewhere, rang the telephone bell and burned out the fuse. At this Mrs. Waterman warned her husband to get up from the floor and away from the stove in such a storm • She bad hardly given him the warning before a terrific peal of thunder seemed to stun everyone for a moment. F. A. Hall acted as chairman and O. L. Ingalls as secretary. Is another of those comforting things to think about. There is cleanliness all about it, and goodness all through it. „ Our Cola and celery sherbert is a most refreshing drink. Blue Kibbon Phosphate is another favorite. Wild Cherry Phosphate is still another. Chocolate Creme De Mint is another. The Assembly convention was held Mondfy, July 1, 1901, at Mayville, and Hon. S. Fred Nixon was unanimously nominated. This is his 11th term, and in late years he has had no opponent. The people of this district recognise a good thing when they have it and are not |n favoruf making changes except for cause. Mr. Nixon has not only fairly and ably represented his own, but by his ability, fairness and energy has become one of the principal figures in state politics. As long as he fairly represents his constituency in addition to performing the additional duties he is called upon to perform, he will be returned without opposition.

HAY Lightning struck the chimney, ran down the stovepipe to the stove leg it jumped to Mr. Waterman's wet clothing and ran down his leg, ripping the pants and underwear open; when it reached his shoe it literally tore it into pieces so it looked as if had been run through a threshing machine. In the track where it traveled down his leg it left a burned streak, while on top of his foot was a deep burn. After leaving his foot it ran along the floor under Mrs. Waterman chair, tearing up the carpet as if it had been eaten by rats, and finally went through the floor. Besides tearing the carpet it gouged a seam in the floor about the size or a lead pencil. The bolt must have divided at the stove for near one of the legs was a hole cut through the floor about eight inches long and half an inch wide, as cleanly cut as the opening had been made with a chisel. Another branch of the bolt bit the rocker of the cradle. The First Assembly district convention held at Jamestown July 1, in a session lasting less than ten minutes, J.

The mother carried her out upon the veranda, went back and drew her husband out on the porch, Mr. Watermaij revived and wanted to know what was the matter. He was not aware anything had occurred, but found it out when he come to move. Low Bate* on Chiuttaqn Lake.
