Heaviest Storm For Years.
The heaviest rain and wildest and grandest electrical storm that this section has experienced for many years visited Carthage last night.
The atmosphere during the storm was charged with electricity. The lightning struck and set fire to the Harker house on North Main Street, and struck and tore up the roof of a house at Macon and Kellar streets, occupied by a family named Hurt. Several trees in South Carthage were struck and splintered. Half the telephones about the town were burned out and Supt. Rush was head over heels in work this morning making repairs. The electrical railways traffic was tied up for several hours; during the fiercest of the storm the power houses being shut down.
Another house was struck at the corner of Cedar and Case streets in southwest Carthage.Farmers reported corn badly blown down and greatly damaged.
