Three stories of misfortune occurred across the country, including:

* a man shot a woman and attempted to flee from her friends by hopping a train. He missed his mark and was “ground to death” beneath the wheels

* a barn spontaneously combusted

* the skeleton of a 16-year-old boy who went missing 4 years before was found in an old hat stack. It was believed he committed suicide by shooting himself
