From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Feb. 27, 1912:
- "It happens that the duck season is on and Bob Manley among others is the possessor of that spring resort situated in some remote spot close to a body of water known as a 'duck camp.' Mr. Manley has been in the habit of using his auto as a means of conveyance for himself and friends to and from the said duck camp. Last Sunday morning Mr. and Mrs. Manley left Lawrence before the storm broke to spend the day at the camp. All went well until they arrived, when the storm came, and duck hunting was no good that day, so they decided to return to Lawrence.... Only a short distance from the camp the snow was found to have been drifted across the road so deep that it was impossible to drive the machine through, and the autoists were simply 'stuck.' Mr. and Mrs. Manley deserted the machine and made the rest of the way to town on 'snowshoes.' Yesterday morning Mr. Manley sent a number of men out to where he had been stranded on the night before with instructions to bring his auto into town. The party took the overland route and soon arrived at the location where the car was supposed to have been left, but there was no car in sight. Yet this was the place; the car must be somewhere close. The party immediately began a series of excavations in the nearest snowbank, which finally resulted in the discovery of the desired automobile buried underneath the snow.... The men worked for some time and finally had the auto out of the drift and a team of mules secured from a nearby farm were used to bring the machine to town."
- "Emporia, Kan -- Walter W. Crump today pleaded guilty to bigamy and admitted to having three wives, Edna Gray Crump of Idabell, Okla., Mary Ducey Crump of Parsons, Kansas, and Minnie McGrogery Crump of Emporia."
- "Prof. T. H. Boughton, professor of Bacteriology and Pathology, today reported that from his examination made of the dog supposed to have been afflicted with rabies, he had found that such was not the case and that he believed the dog had the distemper.... This will be received as welcome news by the residents of Washington Creek who are the owners of dogs bitten last Saturday by this dog. They had feared that they would be obliged to kill their pets because of this but now this will not be necessary."
