Curious freak of lightning

During the thunder storm Thurs., the lightning played a queer freak in Clinton, Me. Three ladies sought refuge during the rain in a house. The house was struck, thereupon the bolt stove a chair to pieces, then removed a bonnet from one lady's head, took the shawl from the shoulders of another, then darted to the hand of a third (Mrs. Francis Low), thence to her foot, then passed up her leg, then encircled her body like a hoop, coloring and tearing her clothing, thence shooting into the corner post of the house, shivering it to pieces, then into the cellar and thence out of doors into a hogshead of water, and finally disappeared by passing into the ground.
