And some of the other stuff is pretty entertaining.
Some recent finds:
About one of my grand uncles, from the 2 Jul 1896 edition of the Russellville Democrat:
A number of Russelville's juveniles were entertained at the home of Mr. and Mrs. J D Williams last Monday afternoon, by their son, Master Cedric, in honor of his fourth birthday. Refreshments were served at 6 o'clock.
From the same newspaper, all under the heading of "Local Generalities."
Until July 10th we will receive new subscribers to The Democrat at the rate of 25 cents for the paper until November 5th. This means cash.
Corsets! Corsets! All shapes, grades, styles and sizes. The world renowned Featherbone corsets at 45 cents, at the Racket only.
Okay, that got me to wondering...what did it look like?
Forty-five cents was a bargain in 1896, because that was an 1895 ad...
If you bought your shoes at Wilson's store, get 'em shined free July 4th.
Dr. Alvin Quinn came down from Wagoner, I T [Indian Territory], last week on a visit to his parents for a few days. He is captivated with the Territory.
Henry Bingham was arrested at Paducah for housebreaking. Bingham's wife is in jail for stealing money from a dead man.
To Get Married: Marriage licenses were issued by County Clerk Mourning to the following parties last week: James Motebean to Mary Redden, Riley Hopson to Laura Rackley, O F Herrin to Amanda Stevenson, R S Adams to Kate Strickland, W R Sweeten to Mollie Akin, J B Chronister to Lon Duvall.
