From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Oct. 15, 1911:
"The occasion of the celebration is as yet unknown, but several of the merry-makers will be called upon to explain at the Wednesday morning roll call of the police court. It occurred in the bottoms on Friday night according to the story of the police officers.... A long list of warrants has been issued for the participants in the events of the evening."
"Magnificent is the word which might fittingly describe the progress made on the construction of the Panama Canal. The statement of the Chief Engineer, that the Canal would be finished in September 1913, or over one year before the date previously announced, was at first received with some hesitation. Now, however, an examination of the colossal work that is being rushed to completion has convinced the most incredulous that Colonel Goethal's estimate of completion in 1913 will be borne out."
"Four Lawrence girls had a pleasant jaunt yesterday afternoon when they walked to Lake View. The girls started at three o'clock and made the trip in an hour. They took it leisurely at that. They ate their supper out at the lake, but they returned on the train."
[Advertisement] "People ate soda crackers in the old days, it is true -- but they bought them from a barrel or box and took them home in a paper bag, their crispness and flavor all gone. To-day there is a soda cracker which is the recognized staple -- Uneeda Biscuit. Uneeda Biscuit are the most nutritious food made from flour and should be eaten every day by every member of the family from the youngest to the oldest. Uneeda Biscuit -- soda crackers better than any ever made before -- made in the greatest bakeries in the world -- baked to perfection -- packed to perfection -- kept to perfection until you take them, oven-fresh and crisp, from their protecting package.
