Old home town - 100 years ago today

February 12, 2006


From the Lawrence Daily World for Feb. 12, 1906: "The contract was let today for the $50,000 mercantile building to be erected in Emporia by the Poehler Mercantile Co. of Lawrence and Emporia. The contract price is $31,000 for basic construction and work is to begin immediately. : Police say a holdup-burglary which they believe was caused by the notorious Doc Burns occurred overnight at a home in Eudora. Burns is a variously assorted package of criminality well-known to police and he holds the record for cussedness in Douglas County."
