Chatt News, 1917 (part 3)

Continuing with more news from Chatt in the early months of 1917, as reported in The Celina Democrat.

The 7th annual Chattanooga Farmer’s Institute was held 9 & 10 February 1917 at the Chattanooga Methodist Church. Perhaps some of your ancestors are mentioned as participants in their lengthy program:

Celina Democrat, 2 Feb 1917, p.1

This article, published a couple weeks later, mentions the success of the Institute as well as some Chatt news:

The Celina Democrat, 16 Feb 1917, p.5.

It seems a writer for the paper had a sense of humor:

The Celina Democrat, 9 Feb 1917, p.5.

This news of an accident:

The Celina Democrat, 2 Feb 1917, p.1.

Chatt news 23 February 1917:

The Celina Democrat, 23 Feb 1917, p.5.

The news of a Blackcreek fire:

The Celina Democrat, 2 Mar 1917, p.1.

And lastly, a question that has plagued the Supreme Court (or a supreme court) for over a century, asking what a woman is. People today are still asking the Supreme Court to define a woman and one (almost) member recently just could not do it. It seems pretty cut and dried to me…    

The Celina Democrat, 30 Mar 1917, p.1.

I hope you enjoy reading the Chatt news from years ago as much as I do. I love these little news snippets. The Chattanooga news pieces were not included in every Celina Democrat newspaper, so the ones that were published are pretty special. I will continue to look for them and republish them here.
