It began late Sat- urday night and there was more or less electrical display and rain the rest of the night, the storm reaching the height odLiits fury here a little after seven o'clock Sunday morning. There was a terrific downpour of rain and the village streets looked like rivers. Much damage has been reported ' from all parts of Northern New York and this county seems to have sniffer ed most, buit pro'bahly ! the\ largest loss was the large cow barn on the Woods Bros!, farm s a mile east of this village and which is carried on by Henry Russell. At seven o'clock Mr. Russell had finished milking tand gone t'o carry the milk, leaving the cows in the barn until 'his return on account of the storm, when the barn was struck and tte fire seemed to be all through the building at once. (Mrs. Russell, who was alone with the children, saw the buildings burst into flaane's and she rushed to the barn and succeed- ed in driving part of the^cows out, but fiftteen of them were cremated and part of the ones turned cvt were bndly burned aibout the head. Mrs. Russell, with the help of her little son, was also able to save a new au- tomobile that stood on the barn floor.
