Kelson Low, who lives io tbi coun
ty, between Lilesvillc and tbo Gras

killed from the effect of iiglituing
aged respectively 17, 14 and 7.
It appears that at the titno they were
killedrJio rain had fallen immediate
ly in their neighborhood, and that
two of the children were sitting in the
door watching the play of the light
ning as the cloud was passing, with
the third ly ing behiud them on the
floor, near the door. Their mother
was somewhere about the honse.
She was considerably- shocked by
lite stroke that killed - her children.
When she recovered her firt t thought
was of her children, and when, she
went to look after them, she saw
the one that had been lying on the
floor, still in that position with his
clothes on fire. She put the fire
out, and found him dead. The oth
er two had fallen from the door out

other on his side, and both dead.
