FATAL THUNDERSTORM. A LAD KILLED NEAR NEW- CASTLE EMLYN. The district around Newcastle-Emlyn was visited on Wednesday by a short, but severe, thunderstorm, the lightning, which was forked and vivid, being quickly followed by rattling peals of thunder. James Jones, son of Henry Jones, of Bribwll, a lad in the service of Mr. William Davies, of Craigyfuwch, Cenarth (a farm situated on the high ridge which sepe- rates the valleys of the Tivy and Cych), was re- turning from harrowing, and had just arriveef in the farmyard, leading two horses, when he and one of the horses were struck by the electric fluid. The unfortunate lad, who was about nineteen years of age, was found by a female servant on the doorstep quite dead. The horse had juit a flicker of life left, but died in a few seconds. The servant girl also felt the shock, and for a time one of her arms was perfectly useless. It is believed that the current passed down through the chimney and into a room where the servant girl was at work, injuring her arm a8 stated, and smashing a quantity of crockery, thence passing out through a window and into the faimvard, killing the young man and horse. --?
