One day earlier, little Oscar had mailed an order form for a wanted toy. Now he was constantly pestering his mother to let him check the mail. Suddenly, looking out the window at the apartment complex mailboxes, he shouted: “The mail is in! The mail is in!” Neither he, nor his mother, had seen a mail carrier, mail truck, or any activity near the mailboxes. But Oscar was right; it was in. How had he known?

In this true story, a neighborhood pickpocket was caught by a woman, the wife of 18th century inventor Peter Cooper who sewed fish hooks into her coat pocket. When he caught his hand on the hooks, she said “I am going to the police station and you are coming with me.” He cooperated to prevent serious injury to his hand.
