BELIEVES ASTROLOGER

Pueblo, June 9---Yesterday Miss Pearl Bowman visited an astrologer who told her, " Beware tomorrow, you will suffer from gasoline."
The young woman was cleansing clothes with the fluid today and, bearing the admonition of the astrologer in mind, she carried the gasoline to an adjoining room after finishing her work and closed the door. She had just left the house when an explosion occurred.
The house was nearly destroyed by fire and $1,200 worth of furniture was burned. She now believes in astrology.




Putnam County Herald (Tenn.) Dec. 1, 1921 Pg7

The Nomia sailed from New Castle, New South Wales, in July 1912, and was never heard of again. Long afterwards a scrap of paper torn from a log book was washed up on the New Zealand coast in a bottle. It bore a scrawled message: " Nomia is sinking fast by hurricane in 42 S, 160 E. God save us."
The German consul at Auklani was able to establish the fact that the handwriting was that of the captain of the ill-fated vessel.
Bottles have been known to come to land even 15 years after they had been cast into the ocean.

COLLIE'S FEUD WITH FUR PIECE WINDS UP IN COURT

Boston, Dec. 30---A feud between a golden collie and a silver fox fur piece wound up in West Roxbury District Court today and the dog's bark almost cost his master a $10 "bite."
Mrs. Helen Cataldo told Judge Andrew MacDonnell that every time she and her fur piece passed the cleansing shop of William Ginsburg, the latter's collie would bark in a most menacing manner.

Ginsburg replied his dog was on the best of terms with hundreds of persons who daily pass the store and suggested the animal probably would like Mrs. Cataldo too, if it met her without the neck warmer. The judge fined Ginsburg $10 for keeping a barking dog but later remitted the fine after Ginsburg promised to fence in the dog.

WOMAN'S HEART OUT OF PLACE

Philadelphia, Penn., Feb. 29-- There are a number of persons who think that some women's hearts are in the wrong place, but Dr. Ross V. Patterson, Dean of the Jefferson Medical college, knows one woman whose heart is.

Dr. Patterson promised not to reveal the name of the woman, but examined her and is ready to stand by her assertions. The physician found that her heart was on her right side. Then he discovered that her liver was on her left side having changed places with her spleen. Most of her other organs were likewise out of the ordinary positions, including her appendix, which was on the left.
