LIVED LIKE A WILD-WOMAN IN THE WOODS

In a thick clump of woods near Pattonville, Mo., a woman about 40 years old, who says her name is Emma Landenbach, was found by Louis Erbe of Pattonville, St. Louis county, yesterday morning. She was scantily clad in thin garments, and instead of following the beaten paths between the trees, she dodged through the thick bushes.

She seemed to have a horror of human beings, and at the approach of Mr. Erbe tried to make her escape. She was so weak from hunger and exposure that she sank to the ground and lapsed into a faint after running only a few yards.

Mr. Erbe picked her up and placed her in a wagon and drove to Wells Station where he turned her over to an officer. Later she was conveyed to the City Hospital.
According to the story she told the physician in charge of the observation ward, the woman escaped from an insane asylum near Anna, Ill., last week.

She managed to get across the Mississippi near Alton, the day after her escape and had been wandering about in the woods ever since. She believed everyone she saw was going to take her back to the asylum. She hid during the day and only ventured out at night. She lived on persimmons, pawpaws and other things growing in the woods.
Physicians say her condition is serious and believe she cannot recover.

MULE SAVES HIS DRIVER'S LIFE

An intelligent mule saved the life of Philip Neutaling, a driver in the Summit Coal Mine, near Belleville, Ill., Monday afternoon.
Neutaling was driving the animal attached to a string of loaded coal cars, and when near the entrance of the mine his head was struck by a low-hanging rock. His skull was caught firmly between the rock and the coal in the car. He cried out in pain, and the mule stopped instantly.

At this point the cars were going down grade, but the mule held them back while several miners working close by hastened to the relief of the driver.
The man was extricated with great difficulty. The physician who attended him said that his jaw was fractured and his neck badly strained. If the car had not stopped when it did the man's head would have been crushed like a shell.

SCHALLER'S BAD NIGHT

Fred Schaller, living at No. 702 Allen avenue, went out for a good time Saturday night and is enjoying it in the City Hospital.

At 11 o'clock that night, while getting off a Southern Electric car at Rutger street, he slipped and fell, receiving a long gash in his scalp. He was in that careless condition of mind where he paid no attention to the wound, except to wipe the blood from his eyes sufficiently to enable him to find his way to the house of Miss Angelina Felters on Second and Rutger streets, who he was desirous of visiting.

Angelina objected to receiving company in the plight that Schaller presented. She told him his blood-streaked features didn't add to his personal comeliness, and besides the gore might soil her apparel and the furniture.

Fred took exceptions to her remarks, and a fight resulted. Angelina used a flat iron on Fred's head, adding two gashes to the one he already had, and knocking him out. Then she called the police and had him arrested.

Years ago someone got me an old book from a yard sale, I think it was from the 1880s or 1890s. It was about the history of alchemy and listed a lot of alchemists and their experiments.
I remember one was making gold by combining lead, copper, mercury and placing it on a rock and have it hit by lightning. I'm not sure how he attracted lightning.

Others were experimenting with levitation, invisibility, immortality and time travel. Some of these alchemists disappeared and were never heard from again. Maybe they succeeded in their experiments and are lost in another dimension ? I wish I still had that old book so I could use the internet to do some research on them. I had to get rid of a lot of my books and magazines because they became infested with paper mites.

Here is a list of alchemists on Wikipedia. I'm kind of interested in the ones that don't give a year of death.

That book also mentioned the Philosopher's Stone a number of times.

WILD MAN WHO LIVED IN A TREE

Gloucester City, Pa., Nov. 17--- Camden County's wild man has been captured and taken into custody. He says that Herman Zellers is his name and that Philadelphia is his home.

For months rumors of a desperate-looking and unkempt denizen of the forest, said to have been seen on two occasions along Newton Creek, have struck terror into the hearts of such persons that found themselves in that vicinity after dark.

Absolute proof of the wild man's existence has, however, been wanting until last week, when Robert Warwick of Gloucester City, while out hunting along a desolate neck of land extending into Newton Creek not far from the city waterworks, spied a pair of well-worn boots protruding from the trunk of a huge oak tree. Warwick investigated and found that the boots belonged to a middle-aged, ragged individual, fast asleep in an immense cavity in the tree trunk.

On being aroused, the forest dweller was sullen and morose, and refused to answer Warwick's questions. And, as he had an old-fashioned, but businesslike, musket beside him, Warwick decided that discretion was the better part of valor and withdrew.
On returning to Gloucester, however, he told his tale, and in a short time a posse of men, under the leadership of Captain William Shaw, started out to bring the wild man to town.

The location was easily found and the occupant of the tree trunk was captured. The tree trunk was 4 feet in diameter and was lined with leaves and straw and contained an iron kettle. With some difficulty they managed to haul him off to City Hall.
He said his name was Herman Zellers, he was 48 years old and from Philadelphia.

The judge told him he would give him his liberty if he would leave the county. He was last seen dragging his musket on the road out of town.

I’m going to add one here. Even though it’s not from a newspaper. This was a childhood myth that I used to hear all the time, and it turned out to be true… Somewhat. The somewhat is because he was a monster that would get you if you were bad, and that wasn’t true at all.
