Meteor Explodes on Farm
During a heavy rain at night recently, a large meteor fell on the land of
Gottlieb Zalger near Hokab and set fire to a haystack. Mr. Zalger was
looking out of the window when he saw the meteor fall near the stack. It
exploded, breaking into small fragments, each a molten piece of metallic
substance at white heat. the windmill stack and an oak tree were scorched
by flying bits of the meteor which were afterward picked up by the farmer.
