“DEATH BY LIGHTNING.” – During the storm yesterday a little boy named Vermillion, an orphan, about 14 years of age, was killed by lightning at the Good Hope Road Tavern, on the hill east of the Anacostia bridge. The lightning struck the tree in front of the tavern and the little fellow was standing under it for shelter at the time.”
