Struck by lightning.

--During the thunderstorm of yesterday morning the residence of Major Louis J. Bossieux, southwest corner of 19th and Franklin, was struck by lightning, but fortunately sustained no further damage than the knocking off of a quantity of slate from the roof. The building is highroofed, with a pointed gable, and is unprotected by a lightning-rod. Several ladies in the house at the time were very much frightened, but no one was hurl, or received any shock.
