Looking Back

CROSSVILLE — March 1898

+There was a “guess where and go there” affair last evening at the home of Mrs. J.H. Beadle. Proceeds went for church expenses. A very enjoyable time was had by those fortunate enough to guess where.

+The Ozone school house was moved somewhat on the foundation by the recent high winds. It has been put in place.

+A woman understands women as a man can never hope to. For this reason Mrs. Lydia E. Pinkham of Lynn, Mass. and now known all over the English-speaking world set to work to help her sex.

+The correspondent from Pomona reported, our neighbor, Mrs. C.H. Smith, rejoiced in a dish of asparagus last Sunday. Who can beat that?

March 1922

+Mr.___ and Miss___ were quietly married last week. The bride was not yet 17 and for that reason and the further fact that she had not completed her education it was with much regret her parents consented to the wedding. However, it seemed the wisest course and they did it reluctantly.

+Cosby Harrison has decided to put in a wireless station to be operated in connection with the Mecca Theatre. It will be as good as money can buy and with it he will be able to furnish his patrons with music by leading orchestras of the large cities of the country, sermons by the ablest divines in the county, election news, news touching great disasters or other events of striking importance. It will add to the attractiveness of his picture show and at the same time reflect much credit on Crossville as a live town.

March 1987

+U.S. postal authorities have narrowed their search to three sites for relocating the Main Street post office.

+Three armed bandits robbed Shoney’s Restaurant. Shots were fired and two telephones were pulled from the wall before they left with an unknown amount of cash.
