A YOUNG POSSUM

Officer Fox was strolling slowly down Fifteenth street Saturday night, dreaming of burglars and bogie men, when he suddenly saw in the gloom at Fifteenth and Troost the baleful glare of a pair of greenish eyes.

The officer drew a revolver with his left hand, clutched his club tightly with his right, and moved cautiously forward.
Just then the electric light on the corner, which had been burning dim, brightened up, and Fox saw a possum. It looked to be just a few months old, hardly a hair on it. He carried it with him around his beat and then brought it to the Grand avenue police station.
As he entered, Jailer Miller made a facetious remark how foxes and possums find each other even in big cities. The possum was then locked up in a cell with a drunk and disorderly.

WOULDN'T PAY FOR EGGS

"Gimme 18 soft-boiled eggs," said a customer in a restaurant at 2915 Guinotte avenue. Frank Medes, the proprietor, filled the order and the customer ate the eggs.
"How much?" he inquired.
"One dollar" answered Medes.
"Too much, I won't pay."
Medes then attacked the customer with a razor. A policeman happened in at that moment and arrested both men.
The customer failed to appear in police court. Medes was fined $5, which he paid.

DIED OF BASHFULNESS

Topeka, Kan., July 9--- While watching his wife cook breakfast this morning, Robinson C. Hutchinson dashed 10 grains of strychnine into his mouth, walked into his bedroom, lay down on the bed, plunged his face in a towel saturated with chloroform, and in a few minutes was dead.

He had been married but 3 weeks to a handsome young woman, and possessed a fine farm of 210 acres near Holton, and had plenty of ready cash.
He left a letter to his wife, in which he said that he realized that his extreme bashfulness would be a source of never-ending annoyance to her through life, and that he would relieve her of it by dying.

He regretted, he said, that he had put her and her people to so much trouble getting ready for the wedding, and hoped they would forgive him. He never showed any signs of insanity.

Fair Play (Mo.) Jan. 26, 1889 Pg2

The Southern Hotel of St. Louis, is now the subject of much unenviable notoriety. It has developed in the last few days that the room in which Maxwell murdered Preller is haunted and that spooks and ghosts hold midnight earaival in the room, and the pranks played nightly on the unlucky lodgers are sufficient to convince the most egotistical and to scare several years growth out of the average man.

A TOWN IN SCOTLAND BLOWN-UP

Glasgow, Scotland--- A terrific dynamite explosion wrecked the town of Irvine in Ayrshire. The number of dead is not yet known. The injured number hundreds.

The explosion occurred at Nobel's Explosive Works at Ardeer, 20 miles from Glasgow. For a radius of several miles it had the force of an earthquake. The town of Irvine was shaken to its foundations. Many houses, churches and schools and public institutions were destroyed. Ceilings fell everywhere, partitions collapsed and scarcely a window in the town was left intact.

People walking on the streets were thrown to the ground and many were severely injured. There were 3 distinct explosions followed by an immense column of smoke 2 miles high.
