SURGEON REMOVES A GIRL'S HEART

St. Louis, Aug 8.--- City hospital surgeons today removed the heart of Alma Toomey, the 13-year-old girl who had been stabbed by her aged lover, Thomas Barnes, laid it upon her breast, examined it, found it uninjured and placed it back in.
It is the eleventh operation of this kind in history.
Fearing that the heart of the girl had been injured by the knife, Dr. Doyle, acting superintendent assisted by Doctors Riley and Clark, senior physicians, removed it with a pair of forceps, elevated it to view, placed it on the girl's breast and examined it for two minutes. No injury could be found, and the heart was put back in its place with no apparent injury to the patient.
Barnes' only excuse for his crime was that the child looks like his sweetheart of 30 years ago who jilted him, and he says that when she refused, last night, to promise to accompany him to a summer garden, he lost all control of himself and doesn't know what he did.

TWO START SATURDAY FOR PENITENTIARY

Judge Huck came up Friday and sentenced Pug Reeves, the Marquand store-breaker, and Bougas, the Mine La Motte gun-toter to a four and two years, respectively, term in the penitentiary.






In 1890 a Missouri farmer was in his fields as the sun was rising and spotted two men and a safe on a handcar flying down the railroad tracks. Later he heard a loud explosion in the distance. No safes were reported missing in any of the nearby towns.
I wonder how long they had been hauling that safe ?
