Burned by Lightning.
During Sunday night’s storm the barn of L. KINCKLE, four miles southeast of Libertyville, was struck by lightning, and burned to the ground before assistance could be had. The fire was discovered shortly after it began, and all the contents were saved except a few bushels of timothy seed and a set of harness. The barn was a large frame structure, 40x48 feet. Our correspondent at Libertyville, “Alex,” gives this information, and says he learns the barn was insured in the Birmingham mutual insurance company.
