Old Home Town - 100 years ago

November 8, 2007


From the Lawrence Daily World for Nov. 8, 1907: "The district court cleaned up a lot of minor trials today and nearly finished the criminal docket for the session. Harvey Hertzler, charged by the city with refusing to pay his poll tax and convicted in police court, was acquitted when his appeal was heard. : University football fans are confident of a victory over Nebraska here Saturday and the crowd should be one of the biggest on record. KU has a 4-1 record going into the game, the lone loss being at Washburn. : Many local people seem to be using home remedies that should be dealt with by compounds from pharmacies, druggists here say. For example, the 'dandelion treatment' that is supposed to cure many ills is considered a joke by scientists."
