The Jackson Herald (Jackson, Mo) Nov. 17, 1910 Pg5

HAS RETURNED

Some months ago at Cape Girardeau, a strange "Woman in Black" appeared on the street corners and dark places nightly. On a few occasions several suspicious pedestrians took the liberty to follow this strange woman and on every occasion she would disappear as if by magic leaving her pursuers to their own imagination.
She then dropped out of the limelight for "Jack the Hugger" who invaded that city and took the pleasure to embrace all the females he could catch that were alone. Now that he is gone, the "Woman in Black" has returned to her nightly visits.

The News Boy (Scott County, Mo) Sept. 1, 1894 Pg2

FELL 80 FEET AND LIVES

Springfield, Mo., Aug. 24--- Joseph Marple, a carpenter, at work on a staging under the eaves of the high school building, lost his footing and was hurled to the ground, a distance of 80 feet. As he fell, he grasped a swinging rope, which for about 30 feet of the descent broke his fall.
From the end of the rope to the ground, a distance of 50 feet, he somersaulted through the air, striking the earth heavily on his side.
It is remarkable that he was not killed. On the contrary, barring a broken rib and legs and a compound fracture of the arm, he is doing well.

NOT AFRAID OF A GHOST

In a village in England, a month or so ago, a man came running into an Inn at 9 o'clock at night and cried out that there was a ghost in his back yard.
There were 14 men in the Inn, and not one of them dared to go home with the man and investigate. There was a person who dared, however, and that was the landlord's daughter, a girl of 14. Some of the men followed her at a distance, and she went into the yard and up to the ghost flapping its arms about, and discovered that it was no more than a man's white shirt flapping on the clothes line in a strong breeze.

The Howard Union (Glasgow, Mo) Nov. 23, 1865 Pg2

A Birmingham physiologist, Dr. Bennet, has started the theory that there are six senses instead of five.
" If, " says the doctor, " two cubes, gilded over to look alike and made of the same temperature-the one of lead, the other wood, be laid before a man, none of his five senses will tell him which is lead.
He must feel their weight; and it seems as if physiologists would have eventually to agree to call this, the sense of weight, the sixth sense."

New York. Apr. 25--- Miss Edna Hager of Kansas City, Mo., who was visiting the family of John Nostrand at Westwood, became insane last evening as a result of an attack of measles.

Left alone by her nurse, the young woman arose from bed, put on a gown and slippers, and leaping out of the window, wandered through the swamps and woods until she reached West Tappan, N.J.
She was found by a search party this morning, unconscious in the woods. She was taken to the Hackensack Hospital, where her life is despaired of.
