It is reported in Cleveland that a little German girl was buried at Brooklyn, several weeks ago, after apparent death from lock-jaw, and that 9 hours after her burial her mother, thinking she heard a noise in the grave, got a spade and dug up the coffin.
After finding the child warm as if alive and lying on her side, she took her daughter home and called a physician, but it was too late for resuscitation.

The Pittee Girls

The Arizona Champion Oct. 6, 1883 Pg4

The other day a train on the Northern Pacific railroad was suddenly stopped. The engineer had seen at the side of the track the apparently headless body of a human being.
On going back they found it to be the body of a young squaw, whose head was encircled by a blood-red handkerchief, giving it the appearance of being covered with blood.

On her stating that she wanted to kill herself, the kind-hearted conductor took her on his train and carried her to the next station, 5 miles distant.

When she got off the train her despair left her, and applying her outstretched thumb and fingers to her nose, she expressed the opinion that an Indian squaw was a heap smarter than the pale-faced brave who owned the smoke wagon.

(That's one way to get a free ride.)




Plymouth Democrat (Ind.) May 19, 1870 Pg1

Cameron County Press (Pa.) Feb. 17, 1898 Pg6

A TOWN RIDES IN THIS ELEVATOR

Probably the only elevator in the world that is used to connect two parts of a town is the one in Heligoland, the little island just off the coast of and belonging to Germany.
One portion of the town is on a cliff 200 feet high. The other is at the base of the cliff on a flat stretch of land.
There are no paths up the cliff, and all the communications between the two portions of this unique little place must be held by means of the elevator, an elevator that lifts an entire community to and from the scene of its daily labors.

London.---James James stole the postal savings book of his neighbor, William Hood, and forged Hood's signature to draw out $354 over a 12-week period. It was easy. Hood couldn't write his name and always signed his checks with an " X."
But James made a fatal slip that sent him to jail for 2 years. He failed to notice that Hood made his " X " like a plus sign.
