On August 12, 1883, Astronomer Jose Bonilla reported that he saw more than 300 dark, unidentified objects crossing the sun disk while observing sunspot activity at Zacatecas Observatory in Mexico. He was able to take several photographs.
The objects were later determined to be high-flying geese.

THE DAY OF DEATH

In France, November 2, is " The Day of Death."
Everybody visits the graves of dead relatives or friends, and the crowds at the cemeteries are so large that gendarmes are stationed to keep the people in line.

Friends leave cards at the tombs at their friends, so the families may know who has visited the last resting-place of their loved ones. The custom of leaving cards is observed through the entire year.

Most of the graves are as vaults, with a little room or house over them. The door is an iron-grating. Cards left there are protected from the weather, and when the family visits the place they take them and send return cards by mail, thus acknowledging the kind remembrances.

A Philadelphia man was recently found wandering about the streets with his throat cut. He was carried to a hospital, where he has become what the surgeons call a " beautiful case." They have him sewn up and rigged up an apparatus for forcing a chemical substitute for air into his lungs, and some other apparatus with a rubber tube to introduce food into his stomach.
The man was living at last accounts, and his case is said to be without a parallel in the history of surgery.

FATAL FIGHT OVER A WATER HOLE

El Paso, Tex., Jan. 27--- In a fight for water in the Arizona desert, one prospector was injured and the owner of the water hole, with its slender supply of what in that barren region is a priceless fluid, was killed.
William and Lynn Desplain, brothers, nearly perishing for water came upon a water hole 25 miles from Salome, Arizona. An old man named Jones had taken possession of it and forbade the prospectors of filling their kegs.
They disregarded Jones and he fired upon them with a rifle. A fight began and when it was over Jones was dead and William Desplain was badly injured.

SPOOKS GUIDED ARTIST

London.--- Heinrich Musslein says mediums told him to paint. In 3 months he has painted more than 200 canvases and has them on exhibition at the Alpine Club gallery.
Musslein has never painted before and his pictures show it. But he is a middle-aged Bavarian who is reputed to be a millionaire and need not worry whether his work sells or not. He says he has clairvoyant contact with the living and the dead and has a canvas message to deliver to the world. He wanders into spirit realms unknown to most people.

In Flushing the animals run through the streets in herds and men and boys were busy for hours clubbing them to death. Several persons were injured during the battle.

UNCLE DAN'S VOODOO

The Houston Bohemians all carry rabbit foot charms. But all the rabbits feet are not charms. In order to have an effective charm, you must have the left hind foot of a female rabbit that was raised in a graveyard.
If to that you add a toothpick made from an owl's claw, you have a charm that is simply irresistible, and can make the most stubborn man yield to whatever you demand.




The Republican (Oakland, Md.) Jan. 19, 1878 Pg2

A little Florida boy taught an alligator to come to the shore and take food out of his hand. It became so fond of the boy that one morning it took the food and the little Florida boy too.

Samuel Cadiz, of Webster, Iowa, was bitten on the arm a month ago by a large black spider, but was not conscious of the injury until 2 weeks later, when the pain became excruciating and he died.
His illness resembled hydrophobia in its worst stages, and persons attending him were in constant danger of being bitten. In his delirium he imagined himself to be an immense spider.

Charles Dodge, of New Brunswick, N.J., is haunted by the spirit of a horse which was killed through his carelessness two years ago. On the 19th of each month, no matter where Mr. Dodge may be, the snorting of a horse sounds in his ears and the rattle of iron-shod hoofs on a cobble-stone pavement seems to fill the air.
These sounds are not audible to anyone but Mr. Dodge, who always abstains from manual labor on the 19th of each month and stays indoors.

WATCHFUL GANDER

In a country town in northern Pennsylvania there lives an old man who sells milk, carrying it from house to house morning and evening in a small hand-cart.
There is nothing strange about that, but his companion on these daily trips is the very strangest you ever heard of-- an old gray gander, who follows him about in the most dignified manner, and stands watch over the cart, letting no one get near it in his master's absence.
His name is Major, and his master says that he is just as useful as a dog would be.

The three simultaneous cases of hydrophobia in a Buffalo family have been proved to be simulated. It appears that talkative neighbors insisted that it was hydrophobia and the children played it for all it was worth.
The family physician was shrewd enough to detect the fraud, and with a bribe of ten cents effected a miraculous cure.
