Convivial. ? A ? On Friday evening last a score of gentlemen, principally members of the Stratford and Nuntin Rws Club, paid a visit to the residence of Mr John King, for the purpose of voicing their congratula tions on his recent wedding. The bug gies conveying the party started from Stratford to the accompaniment of a brisk shower of rain, which, under less pleasant circumstances, might have had a deterrent effect on some of the merry makers. Upon arrival they were received by Mr King, who cheerfully surrendered the freedom of his house. The Presi dent of the Racing Clnb (Mr S. Farrell) explained the object of the invasion, and Mr Lewis presented those of the gentle men who had not been honored with the acquaintance of Mrs King, who extended a warm welcome to her husbandV friends to partaKe of the ahuudant refreshments which were tastefully arranged on the dining table in expectation of the siege.

THUNDERBOLTS OR BALL LIGHTNING. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 14 June 1912

THUNDERBOLTS OR BALL LIGHTNING. The term thunderbolt is generally applied both to the rare phenomenon or ball lightning and to meteoric stones. In the latter case its only meaning is that their luminous path resembles lightning, or that they cause great atmospheric disturbance. Here -the -term is applied only to hall light ning. The singularity of ball lightning consists ia the complete Isolation of a gaseous sphere having no envelope, vet within which there is energy stored by previous electrical action, which, in the end, is liberated with ex plosive violence. From the few re cords of its appearance these facts (writes W. M. Thornton, in the 'Phil- osophical Magazine') may be consid ered as established. It is observed as a luminous blue ball occurring after very intense lightning flashes, either falling slowly from clouds, or moving horizontally some feet above the earth's surface. It is more fre quently seen at sea than on land. It appears to move under the action of gravitation ...
