About five o'clock Mr. Memhard awoke and came out into the store to see that the windows were closed when he notice a blaze at the window over his desk where the telephone wires were burning out. Papers hanging underneath the window were scorched, but luckily no other damage was done. At the Central depot, the naughty fluid ran in on the wires from the outside and set fire to the wall above the phone. Agent Barlow was quick to throw on a couple buckets of water and thus saved what would undoubtedly have been a serious fire. At the home of Brakeman Richmond another shock was felt that did some damage to the chimney and scared Mrs. Richmond half out of her wits. When Jim Burnside arrived at the F. & N. E. Depot he found the wall above his phone smoked over showing where the lightning had run along the wall. The phones of the town are quite generally knocked out so that they are useless until they are put in repair again.
