Thursday last week, William Herz of West Huron street had by industry and strict attention to business accomplished a quarter of a century in Ann Arbor. The matter was not regarded as of much importance by William, as he had intended to spend his quarter century somewhere; but when a streak of lightning came tearing down the chimney, knocking the bricks down its own throat and rippin-g up the mantel and fireplace, and making the air thick with flying brickbats and ashes, Mr. Herz saw that his dates were recorded by the Olympic deity, and the attention he was getting was to remind him of it. His loss wis about #150, in material damages. His son, Oswald, who sat near tfce grate, narrowly escaped the flying bricks, and still shudders as he recalls how near he carne to taking the part of leading man at a funeral.
