Von Quast of tho city health depart
ment has a two-bladed pockot-knlfo
with an ebony and brass mounted
handlo which, it is asserted, is tho
property of tho city marshal of Pilot
Grove, Mo. The knlfo was swallowed
one week ago to-day by Harry Whal
Ion, otherwise the "human ostrich,"
.while giving a f.lrcct performance of
gastronomlcal feats in that place.
Dr. E. Von Quast, assisted by a num
ber of other surgeons, cut Whallen's
stomach open at thu German hospital
tills morning and took therefrom over
130 nnlls, knives, screws and tacks,
among them being tho marshal's big

1 barbed wiro staple.
3 ounces fine glass.
Tho astonishing fact h that Whallen
carried this remarkable collection of
junk in his stomach a week anil is
still alive. Tho case is tho most re
markable of its kind that has over
coino to tho attention of doctors nnd
surgeons in Kansas City, and it has
few paralells in the history of surgery.
Whallen is a professional showman.
He began swnllowing nr.ils and glass
when ho was a lad 10 year3 old. He
Boon found his way into a dime mu
seum and later Into a side show Ho
travoled' all over tho United States
with Illinium's nnd other big circuses
as a "human ostrich" and a contor
tionist. Ho can twist himsolf into
almost any shape, so supple aro his
joints, nnd until a week ago he could
swallow with safety any object that
would pass down his throat.
CAUSE OF HIS TltOUHLE.
Not long ago Whallon was stranded
in St Louis. Uo began to work his
way to Kansas City by giving street
performances In, small towus, Hpon
these occasions ho would swallow
nails, knives and tacks and nny In
credulous individual in tlio nudienco
who cared to risk his pockot knife for
the snko of fu-'ther testing Whallen's
swallowing ability was gouorawy uo
commodateii. The pockot knlfo feat caused Whal
len's trouble, lie swallowed a two
bladed Harlow knifo belonging to tho
city marshal of Pilot Grove and it
lodged in his stomach. Thursday ho
went to tho city dispensary and told
Dr. Van Quast and Dr. Smvtlio that ho
had 100 nails, knives, tacks and other
hardware and cutlery in his stomach.
They refused to bolicvo his story, but
upon examining him found that some
hard substance had lodged there.
Whallen insisted that ho was telling
the, truth and it was determined to ap
ply tho X rays.
This was done by Dr. J. N. Scott in
th presence of several doctors and
newspaper reporters. X ray proto
graphs of Whallon's btomach were
taken with tho powerful Crooke's
WHAT X HAYS SHOWED.
Thoso photographs showed the bono
framo worlc of tho man's body and a
dark rpot almost as large as a man's
hand showed tho exact location of Che
mass of knives, nulls and glass. An
effori was mado to look through Whal
len's body with tho X rays and tho
lluoroscope. His ribs and vertebral
could be easily discerned, his heart
pulsations seen and tho metal mass
outlined, but tho rays wero not pow
erful enough to define what tho object
really was. It wus found that the
metal was lodged in tho lnrgc sack
which is technically called the stom
ach. Whallen's sufferings became in
tense as the incongruous substances
remained in his stomach, nnd he de
termined to have an operation per
formed. As his calling would indicate, the
"human ostrich" Is a man of nerve.
He said ho did not fear tho operation.
At the conclusion of the operation
Whallen was weak and of eourso un
conscious, but tho surgeons said his

bled as If in an earthquake shock. In
the barracks the shock was tenlfic
enough to throw veterans from their

on the part of the commandant to nre
vent a berious panic. One veteran,
who was occupying a scat on tho lawn,
was thrown to the ground: - -
Mrs. Smith's escape "from Instant
deatli was miraculous, thu explosion
was directly b.cnonth her bed chamber.
She usually sleeps upon a couch, but
lust night occupied 11 bed in tlio samo
room, but on the side furthest from
the outer wall. She heard tho shut
ters rattle, but saw no one. A moment
later the explosion followed, und sho
found herself in the midst of flying
furniture and shattered window panes.
One entire side of her room was torn
away. Tlio couch sho usually occu
pied caught the full force of tho ex
plosion and wns hurled across tho
room, passing directly over her bed
and landing upon a bureau.
Governor Smith and daughter, Miss
Daisy Smith, occupied rooms on tlio
second floor, nnd were far enough re
moved from the seat of tho explosion
to escape tho serious consequences suf
fered by Mrs. Smith.
Hesides being cut and bruised by
broken glass and pieces of flying fur
niture, Mrs. Smith was completely
prostrated by the shock and is now in
a precarious condition. Mrs. Smith
has been in delicate health for years.
The scene at the governor's resi

and torn, the cast side being almost
wholly blown out, tlio windows broken

The whole interior was wrecked,

after having been out all night Many

Ho was In a surly mood and when
taken into custody expressed regret

Afterward ho ro fused to say any
thing. Another dishonorably dis
charged veteran is suspected of com
plicity, but has not been apprehended.
Oliver is a tough character, and a
few months ago was arrested and pun
ished for deliberately shooting intonn
electric car. A few nights ago John
Hiringcr's powder magazine was
robbed, and it is believed tho robber
is the one who caused the explosion.
It is the universal opinion in this
city that the outrage is a direct result
of the persecution waged avainst Gov
ernor Smith for the past five or six
years by certain persons in Leaven
