The Jackson Herald (Jackson, Mo) July 25, 1901 Pg2

August Leine, the blacksmith of this place, has invented a machine to enable babies to walk at a very young age. He will supply you if you need one. He also has a patent on a grindstone that runs on a bicycle gearing.



Holt County Sentinel (Oregon, Mo) Dec. 7, 1883 Pg1

Most everyone has noticed the unusual brightness of the sunsets lately. The phenomenon is due to what is known as a " cry fog."
In the United States this frequently occurs in November or the latter part of October, commonly known as Indian Summer. This appearance is characterized by a hazy appearance of the atmosphere, a redness of the sky, absence of rain and a mild temperature.

This appears to result from a dry and stagnant state of the atmosphere, during which the air, particularly the upper portion, becomes filled with dust and smoke arising from numerous fires, by which its transparency is greatly impaired. A general rain clears out these impurities. During long periods of drought in summer, the same peculiar appearance of the sky is observed.




Marble Hill Press (Marble Hill, Mo) Oct. 10, 1889 Pg1

A Georgia newspaper reports that a farmer near Hilton hired a very inexperienced boy to help about the place. One morning he told the lad to salt the calf in the pasture. The boy took about a quart of salt and rubbed it all over the calf and worked it into the hair.

A gang of colts in the pasture scented the salt and got after the calf. They licked the hair off the calf's back and tried to lick the hide off too. The farmer tried to catch the calf to wash it, but the creature, thinking that he wanted to lick too, kept out of the way. The boy, the farmer and calf are very unhappy. The colts are the only ones that got any fun out of it.

The Laclede Blade (Laclede, Mo) Aug. 16, 1902 Pg2

IS MINNIE MITCHELL ALIVE ?

Chicago, Aug. 14-- Mystery surrounding the Bartholin murder cases baffles the Chicago police. The feeling grows stronger that the body of the young woman found last Thursday in the field at Seventy-Fourth and State streets and buried as Minnie Mitchell, was not that of the young woman.

Coroner Traeger was asked to exhume the body, but inasmuch as the family of the girl did not join in the request, he declined to disinter it.
