Last night the drouth was broken by a bountiful rain. We had the heaviest of thundering of the season. A sad accident occured two miles south and one east of Marshall, during the storm the other night, the house of Mr. House was struck by lightning killing both Mr. House and his wife. It was not discovered until in the morning. It seems as though they were attempting to go to the cellar for protection and as they were leaving the house or about to leave, the lightning struck the house close to the door, the wife falling back to the north side of the door and Mr. House to the south. He had on his right arm some bed clothing and she, two pillows and one comfort, they both were badly bruised.
