Bug Steals a Diamond Pin. -- A monster bug robbed Jesse P. Van Doozer of Evanston, of a $200 diamond scarf-pin Satruday night. Mr. Van Doozer is the famous former captain and coach of the Northwestern Univeristy football team, and is now assistant
postmaster at Evanston. Hoe he happened to loose his pin is told as follows: As Mr. Van Doozer was returning from the Summer evening party at the Country Club Saturday night his attention was attracted by a particularly large specimen of the genus
beetle. In college Mr. Van Doozer was an ardent student of zoology, especially of the branch technically named entomology, but known to the uninitiated as "biology." He still retains his studious habits, and this struck him as an unsually choice
heteropterous hemipterous specimen. With practiced decteroty he captured the mean-looking insect and carried it squirming to his room. As no pin was convenient, he stuck the monster bug to the wall for a moment with his diamond scarfpin. He turned to
his bug collection and spent some time in rearranging it and making place for his new acquisition. A lively buzzing drew his attention to the beetle, which had worked itself loose from the wall and began to circle about the room with the pin sticking
through his body. Van Doozer made for the open window, but the great beetle was too quick for him. As it darted through the opening the sparkle of the stone added a new brghtness to its sheen. The diamond scarfpin is still missing. __Newspaper.
