Falkirk Herald Sept. 4, 1901

A MYSTERY OF THE SKY

A curious phenomenon was witnessed at Geneva on Thursday during sunset.

Above the Saleve, a mountain overlooking Geneva, there appeared a series of luminous rings of beautiful lines, which looked exactly like the reflected mirage of a rifled gun on a magnified scale.
The rings were a few yards distance from each other, and the last of them disappeared in a rosy haze.

The sky above assumed a blood-red color, which gradually became intensified as the sun disappeared over the horizon.
The luminous rings kept their circular forms for fully 8 minutes, but their color continually changed to all shades of the rainbow before finally disappearing as suddenly as they appeared. Viewed from the town, the rings seemed to have a diameter of 50 yards, and the space inside the rings to be filled with a dark pink mist.
Scientists are unable to account for the phenomenon.

On a summer day in 1915, Essie Dunbar passed out from epilepsy and hit the floor. Her worried friends and family called for a doctor. Not finding any signs of life he pronounced her dead.
There was a quick funeral and she was buried.
Her sister showed up late and was grief-stricken that she did not get to see Essie one last time. Feeling sorry for her, they decided to dig up the grave so she could see her.
When they raised the coffin and removed the lid, Essie sat up. The people fled in fear. Essie then climbed out and walked to town. She ended up outliving the quack that had her buried.

I have opted to be cremated because I dont want to be buried alive. At least I will know I am dead if I am burned to ashes. And..besides being buried alive in this day and age is probably unlikely. Maybe I was buried alive in a previous lifetime?

These mysteries are amazing and makes you think there are many things we still just dont understand about our world. People have suggested there are natural 'portals' which constantly move around and are part of the way the Earth works. It would account for many of the disappearances and appearances we have on record, particularly if these transported people to other realities or dimensions. Scary thought though.

Being buried alive was a common fear 100 years ago. I read about some of the measures folks went through to prevent it, like one guy had a wire coming from inside his coffin up through the ground and tied to a little bell on his headstone.
If he was still alive he would pull on the wire to alert anyone that was near. I wonder how many times he was dug up because of the wind ?

1899 newspaper reports of the kissing bug outbreak.

I was surprised to read about this, I didn't know they knew about them back then. The first I heard about them was about 15 years ago.
The local news was doing a story about them because some guy in my city had Chagas, he didn't look too good, his face was swollen, eyeball bugged out and he drooled when he spoke. They said it can cause swelling of the brain.
They had some expert explaining how those bugs operate. He said they get into your bedroom, hide inside your pillow case, under the bedding or at the edge of your mattress and wait for you to fall asleep. They then crawl onto your face and eat the dried spit around your mouth, then immediately take a crap. When you lick around your mouth is when you get it because the bacteria is in their crap.

I got real paranoid after watching that because I had been seeing bugs that resembled the pictures they showed of the kissing bug all around my house. I even killed a couple that got indoors. Every night before I went to bed I would check inside my pillow case, look under the sheets and blankets, and lift my mattress up to see if any were hiding under there. I even started putting Chap Stick around my lips before I went to sleep. I wasn't about to smear Raid around my mouth.

As it turned out, the bugs I had been seeing were just stink bugs.
