BEES ON BABY'S HEAD

Two children of John Fehr, residing near Straustown, Germany, had a thrilling adventure with a swarm of bees.
The insects left the hive in a large black ball as they landed on a two-year-old child who was playing in the yard, totally unaware of the danger. Another child, Merton, age 14, realized the dangerous condition and began banging on tin kettles.
The noise and confusion caused the bees to leave the child and fly to a pine tree where the owner captured them in a hive. Neither of the children were stung.

POODLE OF GREAT SAGACITY

Omaha.---Joe Teahou, a traveling passenger agent of the Wabash, has returned from a trip through the state, and tells this story:

"As we were approaching Talmadge the other day, a lady with a poodle dog came into the smoker. A traveling man called her attention to the character of the car, and told her she had better go into one of the others.
She declared that she was going to remain right there, and told him he must not light and smoke the pipe he was filling with tobacco. He opened the window and calmly lit his pipe, and was puffing away when she leaned over and snatched the pipe from his mouth and threw it out the window.
Enraged, the traveling man turned around, grabbed the poodle and chucked it out the window. Then she went on the warpath.
She declared she would have him arrested at Talmadge, where she said she knew everybody. He replied he would have her arrested for stealing his pipe.
The argument was hot and heavy when they got off the train, they looked around for the town marshal and finally found him.
As they were telling him their troubles the poodle came running up the track with the pipe in his mouth."

BODY SNATCHER IN LIMBO

Keytesville, Mo., Mar. 16--- James Fox, a Marceline druggist and a recent student in a Kansas City medical college, was arrested today on a charge of body snatching.
The remains of Miss Leona Gates were stolen from the Bell cemetery near Westville, four miles north of this place last Monday night and an investigation by the authorities resulted in the arrest of Fox as being the ghoul.

He is now under a bond of $600 for his appearance for trial before Squire Clark at Westville on March 27. Jim Wood, who works in Jacob Zimmerman's livery stable at Marceline and who hauled the corpse from the cemetery to Fox's residence, will turn state's evidence.
Peter Noll, a drayman, helped remove the corpse from Fox's residence to the drugstore and admits having done so.
The remains of the young lady have since mysteriously disappeared. Miss Gates was 19 years old and died of consumption.
