Shanghai Blood Fountain 
I've have been unable to find out any more information about this short but strange story but here it is anyway.

Great excitement prevails in the Chinese city of Shanghae, consequent upon the supposed discovery of a miraculous fountain of blood, which spouts out from the wall upon the persons of all who come near it.

It's from the The Troy Herald., Troy Missouri, October 1, 1873. Also from that same issue:

For knocking out the last tooth his mother-in-law had, a California man has had to pay $100. 

A Glasgow manufacturer has turned out a palanquin umbrella thirty-two feet in circumference. It is designed to keep the sun off an African chief.
