100 years ago: Grant Township enjoys new C.P.A. hall

November 24, 2011


From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Nov. 24, 1911:

"The new C.P.A. Hall at Midland for the Grant Township organization was used for the first time last evening. It was no big occasion but just the first meeting of the Grant Township C.P.A. in its new home, and a fine one at that. It has a metal ceiling, cloak room, property room and everything else desirable."

[Advertisements] "Fountain Pens -- Waterman, Parker, Sterling -- Self-filling and old style. $1.00 to $5.00 at Boyles on Mass Street." ... "CITY WATER -- Safest By Test" ... "THE BRAIN is the force that keeps the nerves well poised and controls firm, strong muscles. Men and women who do the world's work can avoid Brain-fag and guard their health by feeding brain and body with Scott's Emulsion. All druggists." ... "Special Train -- Columbia and Return -- via Union Pacific & Wabash -- Official Lines To MISSOURI-KANSAS FOOTBALL GAME -- November 25. Leave Lawrence 6:00 am. Arrive Columbia 12:00 Noon. Leave Columbia 6:00 p.m. The band, freshman team and rooters all go on this special accommodation for a large crowd. $5.35 ROUND TRIP. Union Pacific Ticket Office, 711 Mass St. Don't wait until the 25th to purchase your ticket. 6 a.m. is a very early hour."

Had a little emulsion last night myself. Brain is not responding as well as touted.
