"False Alarm"
Chico Weekly Record, Chico, California - Saturday, December 25, 1897

Thomas L. Henry of Pine Station, Pa., died the other day, and his friends made preparations to give him a fine funeral. But the sad event has been indefinitely postponed owing to the fact that when they were about to put the old gentleman on ice he raised himself up, winked at the prettiest girl in the room and asked what time it was.
