Kills Huge Rattler

William Otten Sr. killed a three and a half foot timber rattlesnake on a timber road north of Highway 66 and west of St. Clair last Sunday. With Mrs. Otten, he had gone to the Armistead place of St. Louis Inn road to see about picking wild plums. They went into the plum thicket, and on returning to their car saw the snake lying in the road which is partially grown with brush. Otten killed it with a pitch fork then took some photos which are promised by them for publication here. Seven rattlers have been killed during the past four years in the immediate vicinity, says Mrs. Otten. The markings resemble those of a copperhead, but on the rattlers, there are rattles. The one killed last week bore six rattles on its tail.

Four-Legged Chicken

Mrs. William Luebbert brought to the news office last Saturday a chicken, 3 days old, with 4 legs.
The extra legs were hanging on where the tail ought to be. They were about the size of the 2 regular legs but entirely useless.

Sullivan News January 6, 1921

A.D. Walker of Memphis, Mo., exhibited a 53 pound turkey at the Poultry and Pet stock show in St. Louis last Friday and Saturday and sold the bird to C. E. Stouffer, of Escalon, Ca., for one thousand dollars.
The Champion Turkey of the United States (he won the title at the New York Poultry Show last month) is 3 years old. One of his paternal ancestors won the prize for the largest turkey at the World's Fair in St. Louis in 1904. Walker has been breeding for size ever since. The California man thinks that in that climate he may be able to breed turkeys to weigh 100 pounds.

Narrowly Escaped Injury From Four-Pound Meteor

J.F. Devol, engineer at the Roberts-Johnson & Rand Shoe Factory, Thirteenth and Mullanphy streets, narrowly escaped being killed by a falling meteor yesterday morning at 9 o'clock.
The velocity of the meteor was so great that it tore a hole in the ground a foot deep. Mr. Devol stated that when the meteor struck the ground it sounded as though someone had sharply struck a ball with a bat. After digging it out of the ground, he found it so hot that when he placed it in a newspaper it set fire to the paper.
He carried it to the engine room, where it retained its heat for nearly two hours. He said there was a strong gas emitted from it when first found. The meteor is disc-shaped, and weighs about 4 pounds. It is four and a half inches in diameter, a reddish-brown color and streaked with numberless minute crystals. George Simmons, a negro porter in the employ of the factory, was standing near a window on the 3rd floor. He saw the object falling through the air, but mistook it for a ball, and was astonished when he saw it disappear in the ground.
At the time the meteor fell, Mr. Devol was standing back of the factory directing two men in the removal of some debris. When he saw it bury itself in the ground beside him, not a foot away, he began to dig for it with an iron bar, and after 3 minutes of hard work succeeded in removing it from the ground.
The meteor is on exhibition in the engine room. After the close of work last evening the employees of the factory crowded into the engine room to get a look at the strange visitor. Last night numerous visitors from the neighborhood flocked about the engine room to see the meteor. Mr. Devol says he will have a special case made for it and keep it as a souvenir.
Last evening a chip was secured from the meteor and taken to the St. Louis University for examination. Father Borgmeyer took the specimen to the laboratory, and after applying the iron test said it contained a large percentage of iron and some sulphur. After being told where the specimen was obtained, he said that in all probability the body was a meteor, stating the fact that the specimen contained sulphur was no proof that it was not of meteoric origin. Owing to the lateness of the hour he declined to make the nickel test, saying that it was a very delicate test and would require at least one hour.
Mr. Devol is 56 years old and resides with his wife and 7 children at 3957 Maffitt ave.

I didn't know that KC and the state of Kansas have this kind of horror show history. And I learned that Jefferson City, MO, has an old, abandoned state penitentiary in it. Creepy.
