MRS. ISH WAS HYPNOTIZED

Omaha, Neb., June 11--- The coroner's jury investigating the murder of Chappell, of Kansas City, which occurred Sunday night, held James Ish and wife to the grand jury as being equally responsible for the killing.
Ish claimed that the dead man was criminally intimate with his wife and that he detected the guilty couple and slew Chappell on the impulse of the moment.
The plea of the couple will be that Mrs. Ish was hypnotized by the sewing machine man and that she was not responsible for her misdoings while so under his control.
This defense has already been advanced by Mr. and Mrs. Ish and Ruger, the father of the latter. Ish, while conceding his wife had done wrong, maintains that she was in the hands of a man with hypnotic influence.

The Gateway Arch



https://www.gatewayarch.com/the-arch...laims-builder/


https://spectrumlocalnews.com/mo/st-...is-arch-effect


There might be something to that. Just last night a long solid line of thunderstorms were heading towards us and then split in half with one end going north and the other end going south of St. Louis. It has happened like that on numerous occasions. One weatherman we used to have would always say it was because of the Heat Island Effect.

We used to drive down there as teenagers and roam around the Arch grounds late at night when there was nothing else to do.
One night, well after midnight, we were walking around by the Arch and this old black dude in a uniform, I think he was a park ranger, asked us if we wanted to check out something strange.
He had us follow him to the center of the Arch legs. When we got to a certain spot we suddenly heard thousands of people screaming and cheering.
There were no baseball games or concerts going on so we asked him what the hell was that. He told us to walk about 20 feet away from the spot we were standing, It all got quiet, then when we went back to the spot we were at it started up again
He told us every so often he hears strange sounds coming from that same spot, and that a few weeks earlier he heard what sounded like to him cannons going off and they would stop when he left that spot.
Sounds from another dimension ?



Watch the Arch get hit by lightning a couple of times.

NEBRASKA'S VOLCANO QUIET

Ponca, Neb., May 14--- The fear entertained that there would be an eruption of Mount Iona, located near this town, because of the renewed issuing of obnoxious gases and smoke, has quieted down.
Although the gases continue to pour out, no sounds have been heard since Thursday morning. The news of the Martinique disaster caused some alarm, and a few families were considering moving away. The real cause of the disturbance in the hill has never been known.

GRIM FIND OF A FISHERMAN

St. Joseph, Mo., May 22--- A few days ago Ada and May Wolfenberger, aged 16 and 10 years, daughters of the proprietor of the Midway Hotel of Oregon, Mo., disappeared under mysterious circumstances.
Yesterday a fisherman using a seine in the Missouri river brought up the body of the eldest girl. The arms of the girl were pinioned behind her, and her limbs were bound together with a strong cord, and there is other evidence of foul play.
The body of the other daughter has not been recovered, although the waters of the Missouri have been dragged. It is supposed the girls were enticed away from home and both murdered.

BITTEN BY A RATTLER

Mrs. Shields, who lives on the Lexington road, had a terrifying experience with a rattler yesterday morning at her home.
She went into the garden to pick up a sack which she thought was empty. It contained a good sized rattlesnake, however, and as Mrs. Shields thrust her hands in the bag the reptile fastened its venomous fangs in the fingers of her hand.

Even then Mrs. Shields was not aware what she had stirred up, but thought she had only come in contact with a cat. This idea was quickly dispelled, however, by the squirming of the snake in the bag.
Now thoroughly frightened Mrs. Shields dropped the sack and ran into the house.
Immediately her hand began to swell to an abnormal size. Dr. O.C. Shelby was hastily called and saved the woman's life by giving her proper antidotes.

HIS BED GREW HOT

William Kelly, a steamfitter, 25 years old, was brought to the City Hospital yesterday, suffering from a fracture and dislocation of the spine. His lower extremities were completely paralyzed with little hope of recovery by the physicians.

Kelly received his injuries in a most peculiar manner. Monday night he indulged freely in liquor, and about 2am started for his home. On the way he passed the Missouri electric power-house at Boyle and Clayton avenues. Kelly had some friends in the power-house and stopped to see them.
While there he became sleepy, and while the night foreman was at work he crawled on top of a boiler and went to sleep.

No one noticed him up there. Later the fires were started in the boiler and in a short time the heat became so intense that it aroused Kelly. In a half-conscious condition, he began moving about until he rolled off the top of the boiler, a distance of 15 feet. The watchman saw him fall and Kelly was taken by ambulance to the City Hospital.

KILLED BY A PREACHER

Ardmore, I.T., Mar. 24--- At Cumberland, I.T., last night, the Reverend Ensley Lamar, a Holiness preacher, shot and killed Calvin Van Winkle, 24 years old, a well-to-do citizen of Cumberland.

In his church last night before the services began Lamar made the statement that no other Christian belief than that of the Holiness sect was of any value, and that those persons who clung to other Christian beliefs were sure going to hell.

William Van Winkle, father of the young man slain, is a strong Baptist. He became offended at the statement made by the preacher and invited him outside.
Reverend Lamar followed the elder Van Winkle out of the church. Calvin Van Winkle heard the men quarreling, came to his father's rescue and was shot and killed.
Several shots were exchanged between the elder Van Winkle and Lamar without further damage. Lamar is under arrest.

SHOCKED BY UMBRELLA

Newark, N.J., Nov. 7--- A.J. Kreidel, a prominent real estate dealer of this city, is suffering severely from the effects of an unusual prank of electricity.
Mr. Kreidel was walking up Springfield avenue the other night, carrying an umbrella with a steel staff. At Charlton street the rod came in contact with the frame of an electric arc light.
At the instant of contact a tiny blue flame shot down the rod and burned a hole clear through the real estate man's hand.
The shock which seemed to strike his whole body at once, hurled him 10 feet and left him in a semi-conscious condition. When he recovered he found that the electricity had torn the shoe almost off his right foot.
