George W. COOK, of Parkersburg, Va., while standing under a tree was killed by lightning. There was no mark of the lightning's track on his body, but both on the front and back thereof was traced a fac simile of the tree under which the deceased was standing, the trunk commencing near the neck, and the entire figure, bark, limbs, twigs and leaves, perfectly and plainly delineated, in a reversed position, upon the body, as precise and accurate as though done by a camera.
