VIEW FROM THE PAST


100 Years Ago

Frenchwoman’s cold cure- Having been without a cold for 27 years, a French lady, who holds this fortunate record, attributes it to the following process. Each morning after taking a warm bath, she immediately sponges her throat, her face, and the back of her neck and ears with the very coldest water she can get for two minutes. In cold weather one may feel inclined to shriek, she says, but the result of steady application she had found a plentiful reward.

At a meeting of the city council the past week the budget for 1914 was fixed at $13,000, as compared to $15,333.33 last year. Last year the rate was $2.85 on the $100 valuation and this year it will be but $2.50. When it is all figured up, there will probably be a reduction in the city of 85 cents and on the county rate outside the city limits of about 50 cents.
