In 1934, Dr. Joseph ("Jasper") Stewart, a chiropractor in Shelbyville, Indiana, was mentioned in Ripley's Believe it or not!  as the "World's Strongest Man."  He reportedly could lift two 250-pound anvils, one in each outstretched arm, and hold them for several minutes.  Ron Hamilton included Jasper's story in his volumes Shelby County Over the Years.

          Steubenville, Ohio, January 31. --- For alleged complicity in the robbery of the C. & P. Railroad Station at Empire Sunday night railroad detectives arrested  Roy Stewart, aged 22, a clerk at this station, this afternoon, and he confessed.  He offered to settle, but, in the absence of the detectives hunting the Squire, and seeing how much he owed his landlady, Stewart left in his room alone, shot himself.  He fired a revolver bullet into brain and died in a few moments.  His home is at Knoxdale, Penn., where his body will be shipped.  Stewart lost money gambling and stole to make good.

          The residence of  Mrs. Stewart, of Fairland, wife of  Dr. J. K. Stewart, of this city, was destroyed by fire Tuesday evening.  The hour was 5:30 and the first the residents of the town knew of the fire was when the flames burst from the house.  Mrs. Stewart lived by herself and used a gasoline stove to do her cooking.  She says the stove exploded and the conditions bear out the statement as the fire appeared to be all over the room in an instant.  Mrs. Stewart was badly burned about the arms, her clothing having caught fire, the wonder being she was not burned to death.  The only article taken from the house was one bed.  She owned a lot of very fine clothing and much valuable jewelry, all of which was destroyed.  The loss on the house and contents is placed at $1,000.  There was no insurance.

          The Board of Commissioners are to be congratulated upon the selection of the physicians to serve the poor throughout Shelby county.  We believe the people will indorse each appointment, as they should do.  The Board did the proper thing also in not separating the Addison township business from the Orphans Home practice.  In this township the Board appointed  Dr. J. K. Steuart  who recently opened an office in this city.  Dr. Steuart has practiced medicine for twenty five years in Fairland, and has many friends throughout the city and county.  He filled a similar appointment in Brandywine township for sixteen years.
