BUSTS UP OWN FUNERAL
Enterprise, Miss., Sept. 23.
James Lee busted up his own fun
James had typhoid 'fever. He
was supposed to have died. They
got a coffin for him and he lay in
it for 24 hours.
Then hcsat up and wanted to
,-know what in the blank-blank
, was the meaning of-it. His lan
guage was so peevish that the
minister who "was to have read
James' physician ws called in
a hurry. The physician refused
to believe that James had come
back to life. After James told the
physician what he thought of him
the physician changed his mind'
on this point.
Another physician was called
in, and this one said that he
couldn't understand it, but that
there was no doubt that James
was alive and mighty likely to
stay alive for sometime. .
,New York, Sept. 23.-If
William Richard Edward Freund,
alleged, heartbreaker and swind
ler, is in New York, detectives
think that his bewitching brown
eyes will betray him.
They are looking forjhim "on
complaint from LaFayette, Ind.,
where a heart-broken bride has
returned to her father's home tell
ing how Freund robbed her of
-$500 here and then deserted her-?
She says that she married him
in LaFayette and when they got
in New York he persuaded her to
put $600 of her money in the hotel
When she found him missing
she went to the desk to get her
money. She found a note in place
of the money saying, "I have met
an old sweetheart and I will never
see you again."
The men here- wonder why
every once in a while some funny
looking fellow, (for you know
New York have funny police as
well as Chicago), looks him
square in the eye when he passes.
