SEEKING shelter from a thunderstorm, John Skelton, brother of the H. C. Fry Glass Co. local representative, who was motoring up the State with members of his family, stopped at the home of a friend in Patterson, N. Y. He had hardly entered when lightning struck the house. Aside from severely shocking the occupants, none were injured, although the bolt tore out the telephone box and scorched the walls.
