to Donald Broome of Moultrie for loaning us some old local papers!
last thing we’ll visit from the Tuesday, February 20, 1962 edition is The
Radio Auction…on WMGA with the members of the Moultrie Key Club raising
money to send the Moultrie Packers to football camp and to sponsor a
scholarship for a Moultrie High School Senior!

Ironer and the least expensive 75 cent admissions to the Colquitt Theater!
Mr. Broome’s old newspaper collection moves from Moultrie to the
Urbana Daily Democrat from Urbana, Ohio on Friday, October 1, 1920. From a
prospective of almost 84 years, even a paper from another city and state
headline on this paper is about the big baseball scandal…and the eight
players involved are shown on the front page.
the front page is a story about the reunion of the 66th
Regiment’s reunion. The Champaign County Ohio Volunteer Infantry,
registered thirty-four veterans at their thirty-fifth annual reunion held
at the Grand Army Hall in Urbana.
story says that eight of the group have died in the past year and that
“ranks of the old regiment are thinning.”
There’s an article that says Mrs. Edith Kermit Roosevelt, widow of
former president Theodore Roosevelt, has issued an appeal to the womanhood
of America to support Harding and Coolidge the Republican standard
bearers. In the present presidential campaign, Mrs. Roosevelt’s
statement, which was issued from Sagamore Hill, the historic homestead of
the Great American whose life mate and counselor she was, is as follows:
“The country’s vital need is the election of the Republican candidates,
Warren G. Harding and Calvin Coolidge. Only with the full measure of
Americanism in the next administration be attained if the people shall
declare for the party which holds true nationalism as its high ideal.”
hah! The 1920 paper says you can “comb sage tea in faded or gray
hair” and “look young!”
newspaper article says that Grandmother kept her hair beautifully
darkened, glossy and attractive with a brew of Sage Tea and Sulphur.
Whenever her hair took on that dull, faded or streaked appearance, this
simple mixture was applied with wonderful effect. By asking at any drug
store for “Wyeth’s Sage and Sulphur Compound,” you will get a large bottle
of this old-time recipe, improved by the addition of other ingredients all
ready to use at very little cost.”
Stallsmith on Scioto Street in Urbana had an advertisement letting his
customers know that they have reinstated the Left-Hand John Deere Stag
Sulkies in their line and will be prepared to supply their trade with them
beginning with 1921 spring season’s trade. They say the plows are sold
and recommended by their owner, George E. Stallsmith!
