Thursday, January 23, 2014 Page 3 i 110 YEARS AGO Anderson and Pearl Ward were January 24, 1904 business visitors in Chicago on By agreement with the temper-: :Wednesday. Dr. Kistler bought ance leaders of Boone Town- 500 lambs to feed and Bert An- ship, two of the club rooms that have been in operation in Royal Centre have been closed by the managers and members, and the temperance people are corre- spondingly happy. Ida Scott and John Hoover were united in marriage at the home of the groom Sunday evening. The bride is the daughter of George Scott, of the Possum Trot neighborhood, and is but 15 years of age. This fact caused the wedding to be post- poned last week, as the bride and groom, accompanied by the bride's father tried to get a mar- riage license at Winamac and the clerk refused to grant it be- cause of the young age of the bride. The consent of the father was given, but even then the clerk stood pat. A license was finally secured at Rochester and the wedding occurred. Mr. Hoover is the grocer at Possum Trot and is a man of consider- able age, having children much older than the bride. The affair has caused much comment in the Possum Trot neighborhood. Mrs. James Terrell gathered up a bobsled load of her lady friends last Saturday and took them out to enjoy a sleigh ride. The ladies enjoyed the occasion very much. The members of the high school enjoyed a pleasant time at the farm home ofJ.B. Mc- Crady, west of town, last Thurs- day evening. They chartered a big bob and all crowded into it. The class was chaperoned by the teachers, Mrs. Raber and Cloyd Hershey. The thief that walked offwith the horse of Mr. Tamm, of Fords Crossing, last week and was gobbled up by the Horsethief Detective Association in 20 hours thereafter, is now behind the penitentiary bars. He turned out to be Emmet Baumguarmer, a paroled convict and was rec- ognized by a guard who at once took him back to prison. 100 YEARS AGO January 23, 1914 The Royal Centre School Board was considerably an- noyed Saturday morning by the discovery that someone had smashed a skylight in assembly hall and ran his foot through the ceiling over the south entrance, all of which was done by some person in nailing a dirty rag, representing a pennant of the '14 class to the flag staff. This bit of mischievous fun will cost the board at least $25 in the way of repairs. Had the culprit fell entirely through the ceiling to the floor beneath there would be no speculation as to who did the deed. But there seems to be no way to locate the person. Milt Kistler, Dr. Kistler, Bert derson bought a car load of cat- tle. 90 YEARS AGO January 25, 1924 The gymnasium will be ready for the tournament which will be held on February 1st and 2nd. The flooring arrived here Thurs- day morning and we have a big force of men working. Again there is talk that two passenger trains will be taken off as of February 3rd. This is due to the fact that many people now have automobiles and those that do not, use the bus line for means of rapid transportation. While it is true that there are several passenger trains each way within the 24 hours, they are so bunched up that as they now run, they cannot be made convenient for the public. Sunday morn'rag about 6:20 fire broke out in the Dunn Garage at Logansport and to- tally destroyed the building and all of the contents, except 9 cars which were gotten out by Arthur Dunn and a couple assistants. The fire burned about 48 hours leaving nothing but a mass of ruined cars and a few upright pieces of the building. In all 143 automobiles were destroyed in the blaze. 80 YEARS AGO January 26, 1934 The new 1934 Chevrolet with "knee-action" wheels, 80 horse- power "Blue Streak" engine, streamlined body and an impos- ing list of improvements and re- finements is on display today in Royal Centre at the show rooms of Nelson Minthom, local Chevrolet dealer. The Boone Township Farmers' Institute will be held in the Royal Centre High School Audi- torium, on Saturday, January 27th. The program begins at 9:30 a.m. Lunch will be fur- nished by the local Home Eco- nomics Club. The afternoon program begins at 1"00 p.m. Elbert Dodt, recently appointed by the Governor, one of the two Cass County Crib Sealers, gives this newspaper a few of the facts concerning corn loans. Any producer having merchantable field corn husked and in the ear that will grade No. 4 or better may borrow 45 cents per bushel. The note matures on August 1 st and bears 4% interest and if the producer fulfills his agreement, the loan cannot be called before maturity unless the daily price or future price reaches 75 cents per bushel. The corn must be stored in cribs with good roofs and ventilation.
