WED TO STOP A "JOLLY."

Mr. Sherwood and Miss O'Connor
Made a False Report True.

Because their friends "jollied" them so much about a false marriage report, printed a month ago, J. C. Sherwood, Jr., and Miss Eileen O'Connor settled the matter by being married last Saturday, the ceremony being performed in Kansas City, Kas., by Rev. M. J. McAnnany of St. Peter's church, and being kept secret until yesterday.

Mr. Sherwood is the son of J. C. Sherwood, vice president and auditor of the Central Coal and Coke Company, and is 21 years old. Mrs. Sherwood, who is 18 years old, is the daughter of Captain Thomas O'Connor of the Kansas City, Kas., fire department.

The young groom is still living with his parents at 100 East Thirty-eighth street, and the bride at her father's home, 1302 College avenue. No housekeeping plans have yet been made.

CONNOR EXPLAINS STORM.

Due to Contact of Two High Baro-
metric Areas.

Last night's storm was due to a combination of two areas of high barometric pressure, one in the Northwest and the other in the Southeast sections of the country. The air currents, both revolving in a great arc from left to right, met in the vicinity of this city.

"The conflict of these air currents will produce tornadoes," said P. Connor, the local weather observer, yesterday afternoon, while the sky was yet serene.

About 5 o'clock his prediction was justified. Sheets of water descended that had filled the rain gauge 1.15 inches before 6 o'clock. While the rain fall was heavy there was very little high wind in the city, except in gusts.

Telegraph wires between the city and Independence, Pleasant Hill and Elden, Mo., were blown down.

At the south office of the Home Telephone company, Thirty-eighth street and Warwick boulevard, lightning was carried into the building on the wires and all the telephone girls stampeded.

Lightning struck a house at 1816 Summit street, and caused damage amounting to $200. No one was injured.
