The Weekly Floridian April 27, 1880 Pg4

An alligator 4 feet long caught the telegraph operator at St. Augustine by the leg the other night as he was going home, and held onto him until a young physician came to the rescue in answer to his cries.


A dispatch from San Francisco of the 17th, says the Giant Powder Works in the district of Berkley exploded, killing 12 white men and 12 or 15 Chinamen. All the victims were blown to atoms. The largest remnant of a man found was a portion of a Chinaman's skull with queue attached. There were 6,000 pounds of powder in the room.

A FREAK OF NATURE

A new-born porker was found in town Monday that was rather a curiosity. It had but one hind leg and that was deformed. It had a head like a baboon, and ears like a mule. The under lip was long and hooked up over the snout, and had no nostrils.
It could squeal like a pig and get around briskly on its 3 legs. Dr. Hoffmeier took possession of it, and we suppose, when it dies, will place it in his cabinet of curiosities.



The Times (Owosso, Mich.) March 31, 1882 Pg5

Captain Percival, a Cape Cod mariner of the old school, was once awakened in his bunk by a shipmate with the announcement that the vessel was going to eternity.
" Well," replied the captain, " I've got ten friends over there to one in this world, let her go." And he turned over and went back to sleep.

FUGITIVE BLACKS FACE, RED HAIR GIVES HIM AWAY

Washington, Apr. 28--- If it weren't for his hair, Jesse Jacob Castor, 26, might still be a fugitive from a Florida chain gang.
Castor blackened his face to resemble a negro in his efforts to escape apprehension. But a policeman in nearby Maryland saw this combination of red hair and black face and arrested Castor for investigation. That's how they found he was an escaped convict.

By the discovery of Professor Elfisio Marini of Italy, the human body is actually rendered immortal. Death loses its all destroying power.
The spirit, the soul, leaves the body, perhaps to continue in higher spheres, but the body may remain forever, parted only from its soul from life.

Marini's process is not a mere method of embalming. This art, as it is now practiced, may delay, but cannot arrest decomposition. The method of preserving the body invented by Marini is quite different. The departed remains among us as natural as life.
In recent years Marini has preserved quite a number of bodies, one being the little daughter of the inventor himself, who died 11 years ago, but is still resting apparently asleep in a memorial room in the inventor's residence.





Pike County Press (Pa.) Nov. 1, 1895 Pg2

In Holland and Belgium to kill a stork is considered one of the greatest misfortunes that can happen to a man. Ill luck is certain to follow him through life.

The Ketchum Keystone (Idaho) Feb. 4, 1899 Pg2

It has been discovered that the physicians in the free hospitals at Vienna systematically experiment upon their patients, especially newborn children, women who are enceinte and persons who are dying.

In one case a doctor injected the bacilli of an infectious disease from a decomposing corpse into 35 women and 3 newborn children.
In another case a youth who was on the high road to recovery, was inoculated and died within 24 hours. Many dying patients have been tortured by poisonous germs and many men have been inoculated with contagious diseases.
One doctor who had received an unlimited number of healthy children from a fondling hospital for experimental purposes, excused himself on the ground that they were " cheaper than animals."

A BURNT CHINESE

An elderly Chinaman escaped being burned to death through prompt assistance rendered by Joe Dias, a Portuguese boy.
The Chinaman, who was walking down Liliha street about 11 o'clock this morning, had been smoking a pipe.
After a while he put the pipe in his pocket. He trudged along down the street, and it was not until his pocket was ablaze that the man noticed something wrong. The embers from the pipe caught the man's coating and caused the blaze. Being feeble and old the Chinaman got excited and began crying.
Dias, who happened to witness the incident, ran to his assistance and with no little trouble smothered the fire with his hands. Dias' hands were slightly scorched.

BARNUM WAS RIGHT

Cleveland, Ohio, Dec. 17--- Charles Johnson, 65, a farmer living at West Salem, was in Cleveland today with a reserved seat ticket so as to be in the front row when the world came to an end.
After going to a house where the " beginning of the end " was to be staged, and finding that no one there had even heard the end was at hand, Johnson complained to the police.
" Two men came to me last Saturday and sold me a reserved seat for $15," he said.

HIS WILL ON A WINDOW SILL

Allentown, Pa., Oct. 21--- Two years ago Samuel Schenck committed suicide.
Whether he was of sound mind when he made his first will on April 12, 1893, was tried in court the last few days, and the jury decided that he was.
The estate is appraised at $4,000, though Schenck had been reputed to be worth $12,000 when he moved to Allentown 7 years ago.
He was said to have made half a dozen wills, two in three days, one being written on the window sill of his home the day he tried to hang himself. Neighbors said he did peculiar things.

RESCUED AN UNGRATEFUL MAN

Buffalo, Dec. 7---William Becker, a young molder, saved the life of a stranger and lost his own leg in the chances he took.
Both were walking along the Central railroad tracks when a switch engine came along. The stranger did not hear it, Becker jumped toward him and pushed him into a ditch, but was himself caught, and the wheels passed over his leg above the knee. The stranger brushed the snow off his clothes and walked away without saying a word.

KILLED HUNTER AND MOOSE

Halifax, N.S., Sept. 28--- A single bullet killed a hunter and a moose in the woods of Fifteen Mile stream today.
A party of three men were in the woods and they came upon a moose. Alex McDonald, who was in the lead, fired but missed the animal and then stepped out from the cover of a tree just as McClain, one of his companions, had fired. The ball passed through McDonald's skull, killing him instantly and the bullet continuing on its course also killed the moose. McDonald leaves a widow and six children.

BURY LEPERS ALIVE

The Chinese have a curiously cheerful way of disposing of their lepers. The relatives of the afflicted person propose to him that they bury him alive, and such is the fatalism of the Chinese that the victim readily consents.
An elaborate meal is served for him, in the way of a farewell banquet, and then the funeral procession forms. The man who is about to be immured under the sod follows his own coffin, and when he reaches the grave he takes a dose of laudanum, hops into the box and settles down for eternity.




The Record Courier (Nev.) April 8, 1904 Pg1

The 300 members from the savage tribes of the Philippine Islands have arrived in St. Louis for the World's Fair.
On the trip from Tacoma they gave the railway crews considerable concern in the manner in which they divested themselves of clothing, many of them throwing their garments out of the train windows so that when they arrived in St. Louis many of them wore blankets hastily supplied by the railroad.
The sudden change in the weather had developed symptoms of pneumonia in a large majority. One member of the tribe was taken to the hospital in serious condition.
