From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for March 22, 1913:
- "A sixty mile wind passed over Lawrence yesterday evening shortly after 5:30 o'clock. The storm came up quite suddenly, spent itself and was over almost as quick. For five minutes, the indicators at K.U. showed a wind velocity of sixty-five miles an hour and then dropped down almost to normal. The damage done by this high wind was only slight in Lawrence, several trees being torn up and a few small buildings and porches injured. However, the storm was general over the state and much more severe in many places.... The only person to sustain injuries in the storm was Mrs. Jennie Adams, who lives at 747 Tennessee street. Mrs. Adams was walking north on Massachusetts street when the storm broke. The wind struck her and knocked her to the sidewalk. Mrs. Adams fell upon her left wrist and sustained a broken bone.... A porch at the Reynolds home, corner of Vermont and Berkley streets, was torn from its position and deposited on top of the house. A piece of lumber from here was hurled through a window at the Ecke Furniture store."
- "While out driving last night, a horse driven by Ben Clawson ran away, upsetting the buggy and inflicting very painful but not serious injuries on both occupants of the buggy, Mr. Clawson and Miss Catherine Roller. When about in front of the post office one of the shafts fell down, frightening the horse which immediately started to run. Miss Roller jumped from the carriage and received a bad cut on the head. Mr. Clawson was thrown from the carriage near the Peerless garage and received painful injuries on his forehead, nose and face. The horse tore loose from the carriage, which was completely demolished, and dragging the broken shaft ran down New Jersey street. It has not been found as yet."
- "Lake Land, Kan. -- Farmers and stockmen here are making up a purse to engage a scientist to investigate the 'ghost' light seen almost nightly here and is causing much alarm. R. H. Painter, Oren Van Deusen and H. N. Holdeman have observed the mysterious light. It first appears as a motor car light but when approached it rises from the ground and disappears. It has been seen most frequently in Sand Creek township."
- "Easter Sunday this year comes unusually early, March 23. It has been almost a century since the date came this early. In 1818 Easter was observed on the twenty-second of the month. The date will not be this early at any time during the present century."
