1907_0816_christ_kid Above, a gruesome story from Stanford is Page 1 news … Below, a cross-section of what The Times often called "Life’s Seamy Side" … The print isn’t terribly legible, but reading the stories is worth the effort. Pay special attention to the engineer who calls a balloon ascension in the Arctic a total fraud … I’m particularly fond of the story about the "Christ Kid," a criminal who posed as a preacher to the homeless when the police were looking for him.
