Glimpses From The Past

FROM THE GLENWOOD HERALD THURSDAY FEBRUARY 22, 1917

The park board is very anxious to secure money to carry out some of the plans they have in view for the beautifying our parks, boulevards and streets during the coming season.

One of the methods used to raise this money will be the gathering up and sale of all the old metals, rags and paper in the city.

As advertised, the Park Board will pay $10 in gold to the boy or girl delivering to the Park Board the greatest amount of this waste material. If you have no boy or girl of your own, save it for you neighbors or someone else’s kid that is in the contest.

POPE COUNTY TIMES THURSDAY FEBRUARY 22, 1917

Stations on the Northern Pacific branch between Glenwood and Morris are again without train or mail service. The evening westbound passenger train made an effort to get through but stalled about two miles out of Glenwood and the passengers were compelled to spend the night on the train. Early this morning two of the Beal Bros.’ busses were sent to their rescue and after much effort succeeded in reaching the train and transporting the passengers to town.

FROM THE STARBUCK TIMES FRIDAY FEBRUARY 23, 1917

No copies of this edition are known to exist.

FROM THE CYRUS CITIZEN FRIDAY FEBRUARY 23, 1917

The State Bank of Cyrus has just installed a machine that will actually keep books. The Burroughs Adding-Subtracting machine is the name of this mechanical bookkeeper and it will be used for making entries to the bank’s ledgers and writing up depositor’s statements.

You can see a Burroughs Adding-Subtracting machine at the Pope County Museum.

The exhibits at the Pope County Museum are closed for the winter due to our ongoing exhibit renovations and storage system installation. Follow us on Facebook to see images of the progress.
