While Mr. Purdy was sitting on' a high stool reading a newspaper light-1 iiing struck the chimneyand broke it in two tearing the studding as it went down and knocking off the plaster and window casings in some places also' tearing its way down through the] shingles on the roof which looks as I though a plow had been run through them, next the sheeting on both sides of the roof. Fortunately Mr. Purdy was not permanently injured although I he was knocked off the chair and stun-1 ned somewhat. Lightining also struck the State Bank's brick building knocking off a part of the chimney and some plaster.

On next Thursday and Friday evenings will be given at the M. E. church, a lecture and a Mother Goose tableau and entertainment which will be the iinest thing of its kind ever given in Bancroft and while space forbids a fuller announcement we will say that it is deserving a liberal patronage.
