The fact that Mr. and Mrs. [[Ashevald?]] had remained up a little [[?]] than [[?]] probably saved their lives as the bolt [[?]] the [[?]] by traveling along their [[?]] bed and by burning the rug under the bed. Mrs. [[Ashevald?]] [[?]] be the reason at the time and suffered a shock and fright but was not severely injured. The lightning struck the chimney, tearing off a large piece of roofing. It followed a rafter to the east end of the house and splintered this [[?]]. It traveled down the wall, burning [[?]] wide and burning the [[?]], taking out some of base board. Here the bolt seemed to divide and like an [[?]] [[?]] in two, both ends [[?]]. The [[?]] part entered the living room before [[?]] the wall, and the bolt [[?]] around the baseboard.

[[/column 2]] [[column 3]] Bird's Eye View of Village What LaGrange Looks Like From Above, And How an Initiatory Flight Feels By H. J. [[?]] A click of a camera lense would promise sufficient data for an [[?]] and graphic account of what La Grange and the surrounding country looks like from an airplane sailing 1000 feet over the territory. No number of clicks of the lense, however, would be [[?]] to record the findings and sometimes accompanying a first flight in a plane, and a first view of [[?]] [[?]] an altitude of several thousand feet. Not having the eye of a camera not the amazing recording ability of a photographic film, I will not be able to tell just how LaGrange appears from the heavens, but I will try to tell about the experience and sensations which passed in rapid succession through my mind from the time the earth started to move away until [["?"]] [[?]] guided the plane sagely back to the landing field on the Plainfield road a short distance west of Brainard avenue. No Queer Sensations To begin with, I had anticipated all sorts of Queer sensations, everything from [[?]], and to air-sickness, to the sinking feeling of a dropping elevation. It is disappointing to relate the truth, but I passed through the twenty-one [[?]], and without experiencing any dizzy feeling or queer sensations in the regard of the stomach. When [[?]] [[?]] [[?]] his offer to take me for a ride in his [[?]] motor airplane I was surprised with what I later [[?]] in Quick was his [[?]] speed. Though thousands of people have safely taken airplane trips, [[?]] still is a question in the minds of many of us experiencing the reliability of the [[structure?]]; the [[?]] of the wings, and the general workability of the whole affair, I thought of all those things, but decided that I would not back down. It was too good an oppurtunity to pass up. With the perfect evening for a setting, and an almost cloudless sky as a pathway, we took off from the flying [[field?]], on the Plainfield road. As the [[?]] dropped away the [[?]] was [[?]] and [[?]] and [[?]] the whole surface of the earth, as far as the eye can see on a [[?]] evening, was open for suggestions.

Green Corners, which has been closed for some time, was also boarded up by the sheriff and his men. The closing of the Justice Park Resort brought about the disclosure of why the sheriff and his men were never able to gather evidence against the resort in the many raids which they made on the place. Find Underground Cave Every time they visited the place and cottages on the grounds they found nothing which they could use as evidence against the resort. However, the sheriff was able to show Judge Ira D. Ryner that the resort had a disreputable reputation, and he secured a writ from the judge giving him permission to nail the place up tight. When the sheriff's men closed the joint they stumbled on a hidden entrance to a cave, large enough to house a score or more of women. Prints of heels of women's shoes marked the soft clay floor of the cave and were mute testimony of the purpose of the subterranean room. Tammany's History The social Society of St. Tammany was organized in [[1790?]] as a patriotic and social organization, but as early as 1798 it identified itself with the Democratic-Republicans as opposed to the Federalists and took an active part in the political campaign of 1800.
