Old home town - 100 years ago today

August 6, 2006


From the Lawrence Daily World for Aug. 6, 1906: "The seven drug stores having permits from Douglas County Probate Court to sell liquor "for medicinal, mechanical and scientific purposes" have made their monthly reports of sales during July. : Laura Potts, the negress whose death was reported in yesterday's papers in town, is not dead and will probably live to grace the police court for several years to come. It was reported she was killed by her lover after a quarrel but she was not."
