A STRANGE PHENOMENON--IF IT'S TRUE

Chimacum, a small farming center 4 miles from Port Townsend, Wash., experienced a terrific explosion and jar.
The result was from a 5,000 pound falling meteor which burst with a loud noise at the height of 100 yards causing a small cyclone that lasted several minutes and then buried itself deep in the muddy water of a neighboring lagoon.
The meteor struck the bottom with force enough to break crockery in farmhouses 3 miles away. It created terror among residents who believed the end of the world had come. 10 hours after the occurrence, the waters of the lagoon were still bubbling and seething and were hot enough to cook eggs.

X-RAYS PROVED HIS SANITY

A Hamburg young man has just had his sanity proved by the Roentgen rays. He declared 10 years ago that he had a bullet in his head, which he had fired while trying to commit suicide. He complained of a pain, and as he attacked his keepers and his doctors, they could find no trace of a wound, and was locked up as a dangerous lunatic. The Roentgen rays have now shown the exact place of the bullet.

Andrew County Republican (Mo.) Nov. 23, 1876 Pg4

The people living 5 or 6 miles southeast of Hopkins were troubled for some time with the depredations committed by a sheep-killing dog.
Nearly every farmer in the neighborhood complained of losing stock, and it was finally determined to put the ferocious canine out of the way. Meanwhile, the owner of the dog was aware of his neighbors' intentions and decided to chain his dog.
A widow lady who had declared vengeance, armed herself with an ax, and walking into the yard in the dead of night, gave the dog a blow, and stranded a "bark" forever.

Default Not Trustworthy

These old newspaper reports are simply not trustworthy. Some years back naturalist Ivan sanderson reprinted a story in his his book ABOMINABLE SNOWMAN LEGEND COME TO LIFE about the supposed capture of a baby bigfoot at the turn of the century. The little fella was supposedly found knocked out on some railroad tracks and captured and tied up by the train crew. Sanderson claimed it was a real story and many agreed. It was later proven to be a hoax by the newspaper's editor.
