Don’t get me started. I really really miss the Weekly World News. I’d grab one and pick the longest grocery line so I wouldn’t have to buy it. I miss Bat Boy…

I think there is an online version of it? I’m not gonna check. It’s not the same.

The Washington Post October 29, 1911

SPOTTED SNAKE WITH WINGS

A whirring sound attracted the notice of Mrs. John Bishop and her children in the yard of their St. Charles, Mo., house one day in September.
They looked up expecting to see an airplane in the distance, only to see to their astonishment and terror, a flying snake passing overhead. It was 3 feet long and had spots, its wings beating so fast that they were barely visible.
After flying over their yard, the snake turned around and approached them. Mrs. Bishop grabbed the children and fled inside the house, locking all the doors. From this vantage they watched the creature fly and maneuver about the yard for half an hour. Eventually, it flew off to the east, in the direction of Alton, Illinois.

REMAINS OF GIANTS

St. Louis, Nov. 19--- C.W. Beehler, a farmer living near Montesano, Mo., 40 miles south of this city, has discovered the fossil remains of three enormous human beings who apparently existed in a prehistoric age.
The bones were dug up at a depth of 40 feet, in a rock formation, which had preserved them probably many centuries.
The skulls are much larger than those of present generation of men, and it is calculated that if the bodies were in the same proportion, these giants must have been 9 or 10 feet tall.

Thanks for posting, OP. I love the ghost train story!

Interesting point someone made, questioning how a train could become a ghost. People, maybe, but a train? Still, it kind of makes you wonder...

I guess it's kind of like the " death coach " in Irish folklore.

Firstly, this was St Louis in 1860...different times, different standards of behavior. Secondly, crimes like this still happen in the US every day...people get killed because they complained their food was cold, or they honked at another driver, or they did nothing at all.
