Southwest Sentinel (N.M.) July 5, 1892 Pg4

KILLING AN ALLIGATOR WITH HARPOONS

A small Indian village in South America where I was staying was periodically terrorized by one of its inhabitants being carried off by a large alligator.
The natives became worked up to such a pitch of excitement that it was determined to kill the terrible visitor at any cost.

Two powerful men were chosen to find it and destroy it. One night they saw a monster alligator rise out of the river and climb onto a rock to rest. Forgetting all about danger, they waded in the river until they were only a short distance away from it, then they took true aim and thrust 2 harpoons into its body. After a struggle they killed that terror of the village.

From the tip of his nose to the end of its tail he measured 15 feet long, being one of the largest ever slain. The two men were the heroes of the hour.

FROZEN TO DEATH

Fulton, Mo., Dec. 2--- Fred Lamar, a deaf mute student in the deaf and dumb asylum at this place, aged 12 years, from Jasper County, was frozen to death in the asylum pasture, near the institution last night.
He and some other students were out gathering hazelnuts. About the same time the boys started home, Lamar fell in a fit, and a smaller boy went to him. The boy said he could not wake Lamar, and left him lying on the ground. The officials missed Lamar at supper and a search party went to look for him, but did not find him till early this morning. He was frozen stiff. Lamar was an orphan.

WOMAN'S BODY BURNED TO CRISP

Crouched on the floor with the head resting against the door, the body of Mrs. Charles E. Spencer, 45, wife of a Grand Trunk engineer, was found by firemen burned almost to a crisp in a shed in the rear of her home on Cliff street, Battle Creek.
The fact that the body was burned almost beyond recognition, while the house was hardly damaged, creates a puzzle.

The famous Petoskey sea serpent now turns out to be a cedar log which was partly buried in the sand. This does not explain how a Detroit paper secured a very life-like picture of the monster " by an artist on the spot."

WAYS OF ROBBERY

A Missouri banker who sacrificed an arm in defending his bank against Jesse James, has just been sent to jail for robbing the institution of $100,000.

The highwayman bestrides a horse,
When gunning for his game,
The cashier takes a milder course,
But gets there just the same.

The King-Hughson murder examination was completed at Muskegon, and Justice Collins bound the two defendants over to the next term of the circuit court without bail.
The latest theory is that King hypnotized Mrs. Hughson and had her completely under his control. This theory is backed up to a certain extent by some of the testimony already introduced.
