Looking Back

CROSSVILLE — October 1890

+Editor’s note: Exactly 100 years later the Crossville Chronicle remains in great demand.

While Mrs. Reed is the first lady candidate to come before the people for election she does so strictly on her merits and ability to discharge the duties of the office. Her mental attainments for the office are very high.

+Crosby Harrison has recently purchased the lease held on the Mecca theater building and will soon put in a new stereoptican machine and screen at a cost of $600 or more. It is his purpose to furnish high class pictures and with a clearness and uniformity that will render it easy for old and young to see and understand them.
