Camazotz is also the name of the planet where Meg and her brother Charles Wallace had to go in order to find their father in Madeline L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time. An excellent book for young adults.

I say that as apparently the Scholastic Book Fair has started in our local school district. Which was one of my favorite times of year when I was in school.

I think I was in 2nd or 3rd grade when a library bus (I think they called it the book mobile) showed up on our playground. The teacher instructed us to find a book in there to read during our free time, which meant during recess when it was raining.

I didn't expect to find anything interesting because I thought they would all be Tom Sawyer or Disney type of books until I saw a kid checking out a book about astronauts and space travel. I started looking around and found this cool book about dinosaurs. It was a series of 6 books and we were only allowed to check out one at a time.

I got through three of them but when I was ready to check out the next one, the book mobile never showed up again so I went back to taking naps during recess on rainy days. That was better than playing stupid board games.

Sea Monster Tales

Holt County Sentinel (Mo.) March 15, 1907 Pg7

HE LOST HIS NOSE

A butcher in New Orleans sent his apprentice boy with two knives to be sharpened. After a keen edge had been placed on them, the boy started back to the shop.
On the way he began tossing one of the knives in the air, the same way he had seen a juggler do. He didn't prove to be much of a juggler, however.
After the third or fourth toss the knife came down and cut his nose off as slick as you please, and he was rushed to the hospital.
They are going to make him a nose of wax to replace the one he lost.

The News Boy (Mo.) Feb. 15, 1896 Pg3

The wife of a farmer living near Sergeant Bluff, La., was caught in a wolf trap out on the prairie recently and held captive for 30 hours.
A neighbor had set several wolf traps made of steel jaws, with a heavy spring closing them when sprung, about his farm. He placed them far away from the road, where there was no apparent danger of anything but a wolf being caught.
But the woman took a shortcut home one evening, saw the trap, stopped to find out what it was, and was firmly caught by one hand. She was unable to open the jaws with the other hand, and remained caught in the trap all night until next evening when a search party found her. She was unconscious and near death from pain and exposure.

ODDS & ENDS

Greek sailors who arrived from India told stories of their encounters with the Myrmekes, giant ants the size of dogs, that guarded a hill that had rich deposits of gold.

A Salvadoran fisherman named Jose Alvarenga spent 14 months adrift in a small fishing boat in the Pacific ocean. He survived by eating raw fish, turtles, sharks and small birds and drinking rain water.

Michael Lotito began eating unusual material when he was 9 years old. He would disassemble bicycles, shopping carts, televisions, and other objects then cut them up and eat them. It took him 2 years to cut up and eat a Cessna airplane. He had an eating disorder known as pica.

Dire Wolf

Potosi Journal (Mo.) Jan. 20, 1909


An ocean freighter coming to New York reported striking an iceberg with such force that a live polar bear on the ice fell from the force of the impact on to the deck of the ship.

A St. Louis woman left her husband because he could read her thoughts.

The story about an alligator killing an eagle in the air sounds rather difficult, until you read that it was a baby alligator and that the eagle tried to fly away with it.

Water having been discovered on mars, we may cease pitying the thirsty inhabitants.

BITTEN BY A MAD DOG

Laura Hutton, a 14-year-old girl who lives in Leavenworth, was brought to this city yesterday by Dr. M.P. Bauserman, assistant city physician of that place, to be treated for a mad dog bite.
Miss Hutton was bitten on the middle finger of the left hand by a mad dog last Wednesday and Dr. Bauserman brought her here to have a madstone applied.
She was taken to the Pacific house at Fourth and Delaware streets. A madstone was applied and it adhered to the wound.
