A Man Attacked by Crocodiles. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Dispatch and Mining Journal — 24 November 1888

A Man Attacked by Crocodiles. An exciting scene occurred on Monday at Bone, in Algeria, at the acquarium — a sort of itinerant menagerie. The special fea ture of this acquavium consisted in the col lection of no fewer than 70 crocodiles, which were fed publicly at stated hours by the manager, M. Pernolet. He always wore a pair of Wellington boots, and had a stick with which to beat off tlie reptiles when they became to ravenous and attempted to snap the food out of liis hands. On this occasion he was sitting on the back of liis largest crocodile, and kept feeding the rest for about 10 minutes, when all at once as he turned his head and put out his hand to the atten dent for a piece of meat, one of the others crawled up to him and bit him in the stom ach. A shout was raised by the spectators, and those around the tank tried to beat away the crocodile, who, notwithstanding M. Pemolet's blows, began whirling round his prey as if to tear him to pieces. Unfor tunately, in struggling M. P...

A Strange Story. A strange story is transmitted from Liver pool, England. A young lady was walking along Shiel-road, not far from Shiel Park, when she was stopped by an elderly woman, who, in an excited manner, urged her not to go into tlie park. She explained that a few minutes previously she had been resting on one of the seats in the park, when she was aceostedby a respectable-looking man, dressed in a black coat, light trousers, and a soft felt hat, who inquired if she knew if there were any loose women about the neighbourhood, and immediately afterwards he produced a knife with a long thin blade, aud stated that he intended to kill as many women in Liver pool as in London, adding that he would send the ears of the first victim to the editor of a Liverpool paper. The old woman stated that she was so terribly frightened that she hardly knew how she got away from the mau.
