Winning's Rightful Owner

In 1858, Robert Fallon was shot dead, an act of vengeance by

those with whom he was playing poker. Fallon, they claimed, had

won the $600 pot through cheating. With Fallon's seat empty

and none of the other players willing to take the now-unlucky

$600, they found a new player to take Fallon's place and staked

him with the dead man's $600. By the time the police had

arrived to investigate the killing, the new player had turned the

$600 into $2,200 in winnings. The police demanded the origi-

nal $600 to pass on to Fallon's next of kin - only to discover that

the new player turned out to be Fallon's son, who had not seen

his father in seven years! (Ripley's Giant Book of Believe It or

Not!)

Twin Boys, Twin Lives

The stories of identical twins' nearly identical lives are often

astonishing, but perhaps none more so than those of identical

twins born in Ohio. The twin boys were separated at birth, being

adopted by different families. Unknown to each other, both fam-

ilies named the boys James. And here the coincidences just

begin. Both James grew up not even knowing of the other, yet

both sought law-enforcement training, both had abilities in

mechanical drawing and carpentry, and each had married

women named Linda. They both had sons whom one named

James Alan and the other named James Allan. The twin brothers

also divorced their wives and married other women—both

named Betty. And they both owned dogs which they named Toy.

Forty years after their childhood separation, the two men were

reunited to share their amazingly similar lives. (Reader's Digest,

January 1980)

The Vengeful Bullet

Henry Ziegland thought he had dodged fate. In 1883, he broke

off a relationship with his girlfriend who, out of distress, com-

mitted suicide. The girl's brother was so enraged that he hunted

down Ziegland and shot him. The brother, believing he had killed

Ziegland, then turned his gun on himself and took his own life.

But Ziegland had not been killed. The bullet, in fact, had only

grazed his face and then lodged in a tree. Ziegland surely

thought himself a lucky man. Some years later, however,

Ziegland decided to cut down the large tree, which still had the

bullet in it. The task seemed so formidable that he decided to

blow it up with a few sticks of dynamite. The explosion propelled

the bullet into Ziegland's head, killing him. (Ripley's Believe It or

Not!)
