100 years ago: Plymouth Congregational Church cookbook selling well

December 3, 2011


From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Dec. 3, 1911:

  • "The Lawrence men who keep in touch with the railroad situations do not put any credence in the story that the Missouri Pacific is going to build into Lawrence. One man who is up on these matters says 'There is a gentleman's agreement existing between all the trans-continental lines and that they will not build through the other's territory. I do not believe there is anything to this story. This gentleman's agreement always has existed and there does not seem to be any reason for it being broken.'"
  • "Fifty-three years old isn't too old to go to school. Just because you are a pharmacist and practicing medicine is no sign that you should close the book of education. Not when there is a state university eager to help you, to show you the way along the road to which the finger of learning is pointing. That is the way one Kansas man sees it, and for that reason he is preparing to take an extensive course in the University Correspondence School."
  • "A revised edition of the Plymouth Cook Book has been placed on the market. The first edition consisted of one thousand copies and the supply was soon exhausted. Since then the demand for the book has become so insistent that a second edition seemed imperative. The Plymouth Cook Book contains about five hundred choice recipes contributed by the best cooks of Lawrence."
