I can see why he was a night person.

A number of my posts didn't come from newspapers either, I stumbled upon them while looking for newspaper clippings. Maybe I should have titled it Strange Stories ?

IMAGINED DANGER AHEAD

Pittsburg, Kas., Sept. 4--- Tom Cochrane, an engineer on the Kansas City Southern Railroad, was killed last night near Neosho, Mo., under very peculiar circumstances.

He was coming north with a heavy train, and when starting down a steep grade coming into Neosho he thought he saw the headlight of an approaching train. He instantly put on the air brakes, but found that they did not work, and turning to his fireman, Mr. Morrison, he shouted: " My air is gone and so am I," and sprang through the cab window.

Morrison remained with the train and brought it to a standstill, after running through the yards at Neosho. A search party for the engineer found him a short distance from the track, with his neck broken. His strange act in jumping through the cab window is a mystery to the railroad men here and the crew of the train he was pulling.

He was known to be an experienced and careful engineer, and the impression prevails that he was not in his mind at the time, or that he was suffering from some sort of nervousness which made a collision appear instant and unavoidable.

NOT IN BED FOR YEARS

William J. Starr, an old time printer, was found dead yesterday morning seated in a chair in his home at No. 2020 Division street.

It is said that he had not slept in a bed for fifteen years, but always spent the nights seated in a chair. In his hand when he was found yesterday morning was grasped a pocketknife, with which he had been trimming his fingernails. It is thought death was caused by consumption. He had been afflicted with the disease for several years and only recently told his friends that he had not long to live.

Six weeks ago he was released from the City Hospital, where he had been confined for several weeks. An inquest will be held today.

In many respects Starr was a very peculiar individual. He often boasted that he had not been to bed, except when he was sick. Since the death of his father, he insisted on staying indoors nearly all the time. He had few friends and seemed not to want to cultivate many more.

The Farmington Times (St. Francois County, Mo) Oct. 27, 1905 Pg2

Belzoni and others found in an ancient sarcophagus artificial teeth made of sycamore wood. A set of artificial teeth on the bridgework system was also found in an Etruscan skull of about 200 A.D.

Plaster restorations of the nose, ears and lips are clearly described in Susruta about 300 B.C. But the earliest representation of an artificial limb is that of a satyr who is depicted with a wooden leg on a Greco-Roman vase in a collection at the Louvre in Paris. In a Greco-Roman mosaic there is also a sportsman represented with a wooden leg.

Potosi Journal (Potosi, Mo) Oct. 10, 1894 Pg2

A ghost which had terrorized a small community in Indiana for six weeks was finally exposed by the simple process of setting the bulldog on it. The dog ran the ghost up against a gate and tore off its white robe, and when the dog's owner came up he found it to be the wife of a neighbor with whom his spouse had quarreled. There is no sentiment about a bulldog.

TWENTY-SEVEN WOMEN POISONED

27 members belonging to the Needlecraft club were poisoned at a dinner given by one of its members last week at West Plains, says the West Plains Journal. Every physician in that city was called to attend the sick and it was several hours before some were reported out of danger. The cause of the poison was traced to canned pimentos (peppers) which was used in chicken salad.

A Boston editor at a public meeting, a few nights ago, suddenly struck himself a hard blow in the region of his breeches pocket, and then placing his hand within, to the astonishment of his neighbors, quietly drew out the remains of a mouse. " He must have been well stocked with gingerbread and cheese " someone suggested.

DIED FROM A SNEEZE

Derby, Conn., May 22--- Samuel Halper, a wealthy dry goods merchant and leading republican of this city, died here today from the rupture of a blood vessel in the brain, caused by a sneeze.

Mr. Halper drove to his cottage at the shore on Sunday, and in the evening attended a small party at the home of a neighbor. Shortly after retiring, about midnight, he arose to wash his eyes to relieve a slight cold in his head. In doing this he sneezed and immediately fell back upon his bed unconscious. The physicians said that a blood vessel had burst in his brain. He did not regain consciousness, but he lived more than 24 hours. Mr. Halper was 59 years old.



Glasgow Weekly Times (Howard County, Mo) August 24, 1866 Pg1

We saw a fellow who was scratching himself industriously, and asked;
" Have you fleas ?"
He responded contemptuously, " Fleas, do you think I am a dog ?"
" Them is lice."
