Last Friday night a heavy rain storm accompanied by thunder and lightning, visited this section (Loyal, Clark Co., Wis.). Several buildings were struck and considerable damage was done. The steeple of the Lutheran Church was struck, the bolt running down the inside, tearing off plastering, wainscot, etc., and splitting the main post of the steeple. It will cost about $100 to repair the building. Lightning also struck the school building, breaking several lights of glass and tearing off clapboards and window frames. The residence of J.S. Mulvey was struck and a stove broken, but no one was injured.
