From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Feb. 20, 1912:
- "A course in domestic science for housekeepers of Lawrence is now being offered by the Lawrence Manual Training High School with Miss Anna Johns in charge of domestic science work as instructor. This course in cookery is offered in response to requests from housekeepers. Each lesson will cover two hours.... A fee of $6 will be charged for 12 lessons or 75 cents for a single lesson."
- "Quincy and Hancock [currently 11th and 12th] streets must be paved this year. They are both side hill streets and at present surfaced with McAdam [macadam], which will have to be removed and brick paving put down before the large storm sewer is built in this part of the city. Otherwise the McAdam will wash into the sewer and cause an endless amount of trouble."
- "Effie Fowler was taken home by her mother after a hearing in the probate court last night. She had been with Delk in Topeka for several months but expressed a willingness to go home and her mother was glad to take her. The case was continued to March 2nd but the judge stated that if Effie behaved herself and minded her mother she need not come back to the juvenile court. This is another of the regrettable cases that have come through this man Delk. He seems to be bad all the way through. There ought to be some way of reaching this man and investigating the alleged facts. So much has been said that the truth ought to come out. Delk enjoys the notoriety and the only way to reach his case is to have a thorough legal investigation."
- "By noon today five wolves had been killed in the big wolf drive that was held by the Grant township C.P.A. The hunters were still out and it was believed that several more of the pests would be killed during the day."
