Narrow Escape

O. Lindberg had a narrow escape from death last Sunday. He had just driven home from town and noticed a storm coming, when without warning before he could get out of the wagon, a bolt of lightning struck his team, killing both and shocking him. He was so badly shocked that it was with difficulty he crawled into the house and, as there was no one there, remained until Tuesday before being able to get to town to report the accident. His face and one hand have the appearance of having been burnt by powder. One of the horses, Mr. Lindberg reports, was killed instantly and the other died in a short time. He is very fortunate to escape with his life.
