The fierce electrical storm that broke
over Peckvllle shortly before 8 o'clock
Sunday night, for fury and destructive
power exceeded anything seen here in
many years. The damage wrought was
great. The downpour of rain was ter
rific, while the lightning was Incessant.

fire and the entire structure was de
stroyed, as told In yesterday's Tribune.

Injury. At the borough electric light
plant the electrical fluid cut up nil
kinds of pranks. Engineer Edward
Barnes was on duty at the time. Light
ning struck one of the electric light
wires and the fluid entered the plant,
shattered a Junction hox and threw the

gineer Barnes was knocked down nnd
dazed, but soon recovered. The plant
was In total darkness. Ahout this time
word was brought to him that Lllll
brldge's barn, which was close by, was
on fire. Barnes grabbed the whistle
wiro and received a severe shock. He
was obliged to put on rubber gloves to
sound the alarm. Meanwhile, the
switchboard was spitting fire nnd
throwing off an electrical display that
lit tip the entire building. The damage
about the plant was considerable. Sev
eral window lights In the drug store of
W. S. Bloes were blown In. Mrs. Bloes
was standing In front of the window

services of a physician. Cellars were
flooded and the signal boxes of the
traction company were hurned out.
Several electric light poles on Main
street were In flames at one time,
caused by escaping electricity from the
wires. It was a storm that will long
be remembered by our citizens.

THOUSANDS of women suffer from
systemic catarrh. This Is sure to
produce such symptoms ns cold
feet nnd hnnds.'slck headache, pal
pitation of the heart nnd heavy feelings
In the stomach.
Then begins a series of experiments
with medicine. They take medicine for
sick headache. They tnke medicine for
nervous prostration, for palpitation of
the heart, for dyspepsia. None of thee
medicines do nny good because they do
not reach the cause of the complaint.
Peruna nt once mitigates all these
symptoms by removing the cause.
Systemic catarrh Is the trouble. Sys
temic catarrh pervades the whole sys
tem, deranges every organ, weakens
every function. No permanent cure
can be expected until tho systemic
catarrh Is removed.
This Is exactly what Peruna will do.
Miss Alma Cox, Assistant Postmis

"I have been a great sufferer from
ohronic disease and dyspepsia for five
years. How I suffered no tongue can
tell. I tried eight or ten of the best
physicians without receiving much
benefit, alro tried lots of patent medi
cines. But still I suffered with sick
headache, cold feet nnd hands, palpita
tion of the heart, nnd such a heavy
feeling In my stomnch nnd chest. At
times I would ne so nervotiR i couin

SAFETY FOR TELEPHONES.
Companies Must Provido Suitable
From the New ,ork Sun.
An interesting and somewhat unique
case, involving tho use of lightning ar
restee on telephone lines, has recently
been decided by the Supremo Court of
Vermont. A physician, while sitting in
his library neat n telephone Instru
ment, was Instantly killed by an elec
trlcal discharge from tho wire, nnd tho
plaintiff contended that In not having
provided a suitable apparatus or ap
pllance to conduct tho lightning to the
earth, or at least out of the house, the
telephone company was guilty of culp
nble negligence. In the lower court
Judgment was rendered In favor of the
heirs of the physician, and the Supreme
court, to which the case was appealed,
affirmed the decision.
Dr. Hnrtmnn's pamphlets, and I de
cided to write to him. He advised Pe
runa and Manalln. nnd nfter taking
the medicine two weeks I felt greatly
relieved. My head did not pain me any
scarcely, and my stomach was relieved
of Its heavy feeling. I am so thankful
that I can say after using several bot
tles of the Peruna and Manalln I am
restored to perfect health.
'"Before using your remedies I
could not eat anything. I lived on
barley water nnd Panopeptln for two
vears. Now I can eat with pleasure, j
Everybody Is so surnrlsed at my Im
provement. Everyone says I am look
ing like a rose. I would advise all
suffering women to take your remedies.
I know If It wore not for Peruna and
Manalln I would have heen In my
grave today. I cannot thank you
enough for the kind advice you have
given me." Miss Alma L. Cox.

It appenrs that the fatal holt struck
one of tho company's poles about a
quarter of a mile from the doctor s
house, that It scattered and went Into
the ground by various routes, and that
only a small fraction of the original
charge could have entered the resi

time. It appeared to be estalMlshed con
clusively that the discharge from tho
telephone wire, small as It was. caused
the trouble. The province of the. Jury,
there, was to determine whether. If
there existed devices for diverting or
controlling the force ot tho lightning,
tho company was liable for not having
employed one of practical value in tho
house of the physlclnn.
The evidence showed thnt on top of

Intended to Insure tho desired protec

one of which was attached to the tele

GOOD HAM FOR. THE KAISEIt.
A Yankee Product That Pleased the
Imperial Palate Immensely.
From tho Chicago llecoifl Herald.
Emperor William of Germany was
Initiated Into the mysterious merits of
a Smlthfleld ham several years ngr
during the ceremonies attending the
opening of the great canal at Kiel.
Captain Robley D. Evans, who h
sometimes known as "Fighting Bob,"
because of his picturesque profanity
and the peculiar manner In which hf
shivers his timbers, was present on
that occasion ns the representative of
the government of the United States,
and In the course of events Invited th
emperor to dine on board the flagship
New York. It was purely an Ameri
can dinner, and a Smlthfleld ham oc
cupied the centre ot the table, roasted
to the proper degree nnd stuck as full
of cloves as St. Sebastian was stucit
full ot arrows. William the Sudden
wns helped to ham four or five tltnps
and apologized for the compliment by
saying that It was the best he ever
"Why can we not have such hams in
Germany?" he exclaimed.
"There would be no trouble about It. '
retorted the diplomatic Evans, "if your
majesty would remove the restriction
from American pork."
The emperor's suite tinned pale with
nlarm at this bold thrust of the Yan
kee sailor, but his majesty smiled am"
listened to a dissertation on the sub.
Ject of hams nnd the peculiarities of
the Smlthfleld brand. Captain Evnni
explained, by tho way. that hams wcro
often spoiled In the cooking.
"This one certainly was not." re
turned the emperor, "and I would like
to compliment your cook."
"I'll send for him. if your majestj
pleases." said Evans.
The eaptntn's cook on board the New
York wns n colored man named George,
who has followed the fortunes of
"Fighting Bob" for many years, and
when he wns summoned to meet an
emperor he responded In his white cap
and jacket nnd npron.
"George," said the captain, "the em
peror of Germany desires to compli
ment you upon your cooking."
George grinned and bowed with tho
grace of a Chesterfield, and when tho
emperor extended his Impel lal hand
for hlm to kiss. George, not being In
the habit of meeting emperors, grasped
it firmly In his own nnd gave it a
hearty shako The emperor's aids al
most fainted nt this unconscious ex
hibition of leso rnajeste. Captain
Evans tried to hide his amusement,
and the emperor, who enjoyed It most
of nil, tossed a big gold pleco to the
darky as tho latter retired. The con
sequence was a petition to the captain
of the New York that a plate of ham
nrrd eggs should bo sent aboard the
Imperial yacht Hohenzollern nt break
fnst next morning, nnd not only tho
next morning, but every morning
thereafter ns long ns the emperor te
malned at Kiel a boat was sent over
for Smlthfleld ham and American eggs.
Since then William II has had nothtnsr
but Smlthfleld hams upon the table,
ordering them through the German em
bassy at Washington.
