Certainly it is «v remedy which nobody could bo persuaded to try voluntarily, but there are many oases on record where permanent benefit has been derived from being struck by light ning—that is, subjected to Nature's own electrical treatment. A telegraph employe i 11 fionuany who was manipulating his instru ments during a severe thunder storm was seen to fall at the very instant that a lightning flash of in tense vividness occurred. At first ho wns thought to have boen kill ed instantly, but it was afterwards found that be was still alive, aP though he was both senseless and paralysed. Jn this st;ite -he re mained about twenty-four, hours, and then recovered completely.
