A Much-Married Woman


Mrs. Fowler, of this city, was married last January to her sixth husband, and strange as it may seem, five of them died exactly two years from their marriage day. Her present husband has been sick for the last four months with chronic jaundice, and was given up by four best physicians; as a last resort he began using Sulphur Bitters, and yesterday told our reporter that they had saved his life, smilingly saying that he guessed Mrs. Fowler would be unable to take a seventh better half for some time to come. — Exchange.

Raid on a Post Office

New York, 1895

An attempt was made Friday night to rob the post office at Thomaston. When Postmaster Cole went to open the place in the morning he found one of the panels cut out of the street door. There were also several auger holes in a side window where the thieves had endeavored to cut away the window catch.
