EXPERIENCE WITH LIGHTNING.
Three Women Rendered Unconscious.
Mrs Parnell and her daughter-in-law, and granddaughter were driving to Corowa during a thunderstorm, and when within a mile of their destination the lastnamed
got out of the buggy to get the whip which had fallen. As she was stooping a vivid flash of lightning passed near the party, striking a post, and for several minutes the three women were rendered unconscious. The younger girl and the horse were felled to tho ground. When they came to they were covered with splinters of wood, evidently from the post struck by the flash. Beyond a slight scare none of the party was in- jured.
