Marble Hill Press (Mo.) May 29, 1901 Pg2

While a crew of stone laborers were working an excavation through the Forman Clift, 2 miles east of Newport R.I., for the bed of the Tennessee & North Carolina Railroad, they found a human female skeleton 19 inches in height, in a perfect state of preservation.

The only anomaly was the teeth, which were 200 in number and had no sockets, but were developed from and grew upon the jawbone with no adjacent valvular process. The bones were hermetically sealed and sent to the Smithsonian Institution.

The skeleton was found in solid rock in a cavity 2 feet by 15 inches. There was no opening crevice or aperture for the skeleton to enter since the formation of the rock, more than 2,000 years ago.

Kansas City Daily Journal (Mo.) Sept. 9, 1895

TREATED LIKE A BEAST

Fullerton, Neb., Sept. 8--- This community is greatly excited over a case of revolting cruelty brought to light by Sheriff Snyder.

For several years it has been known that a family named Knapik, in the Polish colony, had an idiotic boy, and lately reports of their ill treatment of the unfortunate one have been circulated.
Investigation by the sheriff developed that the boy, who is also partially paralyzed, has been picketed out like a domestic animal in an out of the way place during the day and at night kept in a stable with the calves and other livestock.

It was also ascertained that he was not provided with clothing of any kind during the summer months, but was allowed to go in an absolute state of nudity. The unfortunate boy was taken charge of by the authorities and his parents will be prosecuted.

An electrical scientist destroys all the mites in cheese by electrocution.
He did not count them, but he estimates in one cheese weighing two pounds there were 5,000,000 mites. Of course the dead ones were all left in the cheese, which brings up the question: what is the difference between eating a dead mite and a living one ?

I have an old paper back full of odd but believable stories that are supposedly true, ill have to look for it..

A couple I remember sketchy details from...

Similar to the train story that started this...Train going down the track on a foggy, misty night. Engineer sees a shadowy figure waving in the distance. Thinking something was amiss, he stops the train. He walked down the track, finds no person but does find a washed out bridge the train was about to cross. Walking back to the train wondering who just saved him, he sees a large moth feebly fluttering where it was stuck on the trains headlight, its ghostly image being projected onto the fog.

Next was a Civil War veteran that had been shot in chest during battle but survived. Decades later, he visits the battlefield and suddenly tells his companions, "Right here is where the bugger shot me!" At which point he fell over and died. The bullet lodged close to his heart had shifted and finished its job.


Gotta love these old stories, true or not.

Gotta love these old stories, true or not.
When I was a kid we lived next to a used book store and I would go in there a couple times a week and buy those kind of books and magazines.
I had hundreds of them and would try to research some of the stories that were in them by going to the library and see if I could find information in other books.

My room got too cluttered so I moved all the boxes of books and magazines to the garage. A neighborhood cat got in there and sprayed the boxes, later on my dog went in there and hiked his leg on them. That was the last those books saw the inside of my house, I set them down for trash. People were actually stopping by and taking them.

I miss some of the stories that were in them.

Iron County Register (Mo.) May 21, 1896 Pg2

PECULIAR DEATH

Anamosa, Ia., May 16--- A very peculiar death occurred in this place Thursday night.
James Northrup, who had suffered with asthma, got up and dressed himself, put on a white shirt, clean underwear, combed his hair and laid down on the bed.

He called for his wife and told her he was going to die and wanted to be buried just as he was and not to disturb him in the least. He went to sleep and in less than 30 minutes he was dead.
