BAD LUCK FOLLOWS HIM

After having been out of the City Hospital only a few days, upon which occasion he was taken there with a broken leg, sustained by falling from the top of a barn, Joseph Goettelmann, 29 years old, was again brought to that institution yesterday afternoon.
This time with a severe scalp wound inflicted by his horse kicking him.
While driving on Clayton road yesterday his horse became unmanageable and started to kick. One of his feet reached Goettelmann's chest and lifted him out of the wagon, then the wagon rolled over his body.
Besides the scalp wound, Goettelmann had a scar the entire length of his body made by the wagon wheels. His condition is not considered serious.

CRUELTY TO CHICKENS

Humane Agent Greenman was passing through the city market yesterday when he noticed a lot of chickens lying on the sidewalk in front of the market with their legs bleeding from cuts caused by being tied to closely.
He arrested the owner of the chickens, Frank Mulveyhill, a farmer from Edwardsville, Mo. Mulvehill was taken into police court and fined $5 for his thoughtlessness.

A man visiting in Aurora carries most of his forehead in a tin box in his pocket. He was kicked by a mule and the crushed bone had to be removed, but he recovered, and gets along very well with it in his pocket.

WOMAN'S ARM FOUND

Oakland, Ca., Sept. 12--- The arm of a woman who was probably not over 25 years old was found in Lake Merritt last evening by two girls, Irene Monroe and Bertha Walter, who were strolling along the shore at Eighth street.
Taken in connection with the recent discovery by some boys of a woman's head floating in the bay near Berkley, this ghastly find strongly points to the commission of a murder, as yet undetected. The head was not recovered, but the arm is now in the possession of the coroner, who will make a searching investigation. The arm was broken off at the elbow, apparently by violence.

A PANIC IN BUFFALO

Buffalo, N.Y., June 13--- A panic occurred in a Polish schoolhouse on Broadway tonight. A church entertainment was being held and 1,500 people, mostly women and children, were present. A hanging lamp fell, and a cry of fire was raised.
Men, women and children rushed, crowded and stumbled over each other in their efforts to reach the exit. No one was fatally injured, but a large number of women and children were bruised. The fire was soon extinguished.

EAGLE CARRIED BABY ALOFT

San Francisco, Ca., July 28--- George Alpers, one of the crack rifle shots of Frisco, used his skill to good purpose last Monday up in Mendocine county.

He shot a big bald eagle which was flying away with his baby. Alpers was in camp with his wife and child and several fellow marksmen. The country is wild and deer and bear are plentiful. Eagles are a great pest, as they carry off lambs and fowl.

Mrs. Alpers had put her 7-month-old baby in a box cradle to sleep under a tree just outside of the door. A shadow fell across the entrance, and, looking up, the mother saw a monster eagle descend, grasp her child in its talons and begin its flight upwards.
She screamed and her husband ran out of the house with his rifle. The eagle with the baby had risen about 40 feet from the ground.

Alpers did not for a moment doubt his ability to shoot the bird, but feared that the fall would kill the child, so he aimed to maim the bird. The shot grazed the wing of the eagle, cutting off a piece and rendering him incapable of flight. Slowly the bird fluttered to the ground, still clinging to the child. Disengaging his talons, he tried to escape by running. A large net was thrown over him and he was captured.

To the delight of the parents it was found that the talons of the bird had only caught the dress of the baby, and aside from a look of surprise in its innocent eyes at being so roughly awakened the baby was unharmed.
