Old Home Town - 100 years ago

February 28, 2006


From the Lawrence Daily World for Feb. 28, 1906: "There is nothing more disgusting in a city of civilized population than to see a full-grown man display a "gun" which he habitually carries in his pocket. In these times of peace and police protection, there is no excuse whatever for any man carrying a gun unless he is in a very dangerous occupation. We have far too many gun-toters in our community and it is dangerous. : It would seem everyone in Lawrence wants to use natural gas. The company receives new orders every day and it will be but a comparatively short time until everyone is burning gas."
