good stuff!!! LOL
There was a little girl,
            Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
            When she was good,
            She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.

Reading the clips from The Richmond Palladium and Sun-Telegram., April 17, 1919 was a hoot. My two top funniest clips are the the happy-go-lucky steeplejack vs the psychic real estate woman. The man with the 4 month “arm” problem must be given honorable mention.  ???

Thanks for the feedback, Fish.  I must confess to picking and choosing these little snippets of news as there are quite a number of them in each column.  I like to look for the unusual and the humorous.  There are some horrific ones too, involving babies and kids, but I won't be showing those.

Indiana Briefs

FORT WAYNE A thief crashed in a heavy show window worth $200, in
the front of the Patterson-Fletcher store, to steal $45 worth of clothing.
He escaped.

MUNCIE Mr. and Mrs. John Black, parents of Michael Black, boatswain's
mate, who tried to smuggle his French sweetheart across the ocean, disguised
as a negro stevedore, said that their son met Mile. Black when he rescued
her from two Algerians in a lonely Marseilles street.

GARY A huge crowd which gathered at the station today to greet and
parade with Walter Petkey, returned from France, was disappointed when
his mother met the train and insisted that her boy go home with her at once.
The mother had three sons in service, one of whom, John, is recovering from
wounds in France.

PETERSBURG Farmers in northern Pike county along the White river are
aroused over the finding of their sticks of dynamite, with the fuses which
had been lit but put out by the water, floating beneath the big concrete
water gate, which holds high water from thousands of acres of farm land.

INDIANAPOLIS A gigantic swindling scheme was uncovered by the
arrest of L. S. Scott, Hugh McGann, Billy Schoeber, Joe Engleton and Edward Siler
say federal officers.  Operations involving at least $150,00 have been attributed
to the men.  It is alleged that they induced their victims to bet on a fake
prizefight in which the fighter on whom they bet was "killed" and the victims,
frightened, left their money in the hands of the operator.

I like Mr Phillip Gagen. He was right to try to stop progress. Too many big streets and too many cars in 2019.

Quite possible the police department was the CAUSE of the crime wave or in on it in some other way. Pay offs...what ever.
Ask me about the legendary desert Bigfoot. A.K.A the Sandsquatch and his more elusive cousin, the Albino White Sands Dunefoot.

Oh man, every year my Mom had us wash walls.
There was a little girl,
            Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.

            She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.

Who would know.  Only Mr. Hall would know for sure.  Haha.  (This is a repost...I completely misread your 'articles being feminine in nature' comment.)  Thanks for reading the thread.
