TEXAS WOMAN ATTACKED WITH FROZEN ARMADILLO

Dallas-- A man used a frozen armadillo to attack a 57-year-old Dallas woman after the two argued about the price he was asking for the armored mammal.
According to investigators, the altercation occurred Sept. 29 in an apartment complex parking lot as the suspect was selling the carcass to the victim, who planned to eat the animal.
The pair began arguing over the price and the man twice threw the armadillo at the woman.
The frozen creature struck the woman in the leg and chest, apparently leaving her with bruises. Detectives have been unable to find the man, who could face assault charges.

Lancaster Daily Intelligencer (Lancaster, Pa.) April 2, 1880 Pg2

Amabogio, a Neapolitan monk, who since the closing of monasteries had wandered about begging, has died in the hospital at Naples of injuries inflicted by two men who insisted on his telling them the lucky number in the forthcoming lottery.
On his disclaiming such powers, they shockingly maltreated him, but in the hospital he mentioned the numbers 13 and 65.
This being published in the papers, numbers of persons backed those figures while others backed 37, which in their cabala signifies monk, and these three numbers happened to win. The government will have to pay two million lire for this coincidence.

THE OLD CHURCH KNOCKER

The grotesque knocker on the sanctuary door of Durham cathedral, which bears a rather distinct resemblance to a lion, is said to be of the twelfth century.
The hollows for the eyes may have been formerly filled with crystal or enamel, or, as it has been suggested, the open eyes may have been contrived to emit light from within the church, so as to guide the hapless being seeking sanctuary by night to the welcome haven of safety.

Kone applied at several private homes for assistance, but the occupants, frightened at his appearance, refused.
He finally convinced one man of his plight and the police were notified. Local American Legion posts will provide Kone with clothing and transportation to Arkansas, where he is going to take treatment for rheumatism.

GIRL'S SHOVEL FELLS CRAZED MAN WITH AX

Mrs. Patrick Bolger of 26 Jefferson street, Newark, was in her kitchen preparing breakfast early yesterday when she heard the crash of glass, and running to the hallway, saw Philip Callan, who lives next door, swinging an ax outside and shouting that he was going to "get her."
She slammed the door and Callan, wild eyed, began cutting away at it with his ax. Mrs. Bolger's three younger children were asleep upstairs.

Ellen Bolger, Mrs. Bolger's 17-year-old daughter, picked up a heavy coal shovel and opened the door. As she did so her pet dog ran out and caught Callan by the leg.
When Callan stooped to brush away the dog Ellen hit him over the head with the shovel and knocked him unconscious. He was taken to City Hospital in Newark for observation. He said that Mrs. Bolger had been trying to " work magic " on him.
