ACT OF JOKER MAY COST MAN LOSS OF FOOT

A joke perpetrated on Adolph Makamal, living at No. 2644 South Second street, during a holiday revelry, may result in the loss of the victim's right foot.

Makamal fell asleep, it is said, either in a saloon at Broadway and Russell avenue, or at No. 1731 South Broadway, Friday night.
He awoke to find his right foot in flames. The shoe was mostly burned before the blaze was extinguished. The joker had poured ginger on the man's foot and then ignited the liquid. The intense flame ate into Makamal's flesh.
He paid little attention to the injury until last night when the pain became so severe that he was removed to the City Hospital. Makamal is 38 years old.

I have that book by Charles Fort the combined version.Bought it years ago for my late father. Sometimes he would tell stories from the book. Since he was born 1919 to 1996, he also may have known some from the 20s onward that were in the papers at that time.

MAN WITH THE IRON FINGER

A German acrobat is making a great success in Berlin by his clever work.
The trick with which he never fails to bring down the house consists in his balancing his body aloft on one finger thrust through the mouth of an empty champagne bottle.
Truly a remarkable feat, even in this age of record beating performances.

Lexington Intelligencer (Lexington, Mo) Apr. 9, 1887 Pg3

Marshall, Mo., Apr. 5--- Saturday a tramp who had been working in the neighborhood for a few days, went to Cook's clothing store, in Waverly, and after looking at a $20 suit of clothes, offered $15 in cash, but was refused.
Last night he sawed a panel out of the rear door and entering, selected the very suit he had offered $15 for, deliberately attired himself in the new outfit from top to bottom, carefully wrapped up his old clothing and left it on the counter addressed to the proprietor.
His old clothes were found but his presence is still unknown.
