Of shot and shell

ELECTRICAL STORM AT BEND

strip ripped, front the top to tho ground,
Tho fuses to U tla phones oil tho local
exchange excepting four woro burned
out, as woro also all tho long distance

in scope as it also visited 1'rlnovlllo and
burned out all tho phonos thoro except
throe. About an inch of water fell,

tisualh' drawn, and plunged
through the mill, carrying
everything before it, and out
t yinto the lutnjbej- yiird on the
other side. vl'l u.ndredsj&f logs
bad taken their 'dive hh tho
pond, according to the plan's of
the loggers, but this ohm struck
.other logs instead of 'the watei
and sped like the pioverbial

like that would have astonish-

The passion in their hearts is stilled

Our love hallows the sacred
