Lightning Draws a Picture


Another one of those rare instances in which the "forked fury" has drawn a photograph upon glass is reported from the observatory situated on Mount Arie, near the summer resort of West Baden. One of the astronomers of that institution, on making an examination of the object glass of one of the telescopes, was surprised to find a perfect photograph of a flower upon both lenses of the instrument. It is believed that the photograph was drawn by lightning, the glass having been left exposed during a storm on one of the upper platforms of the observatory. The flower is one known only in the Mount Arie country. — St. Louis Republic.
