100 years ago in Sanilac

Several men in Croswell on Saturday night had obviously indulged in strong doses of Christmas cheer, but no one was arrested.

Mr. Frank Marlow from Dayton, Ohio, got off the evening train on Tuesday feeling faint and sick. He started up the street toward the hotel, and fell to the sidewalk in front of The Jeffersonian building. Citizens carried the man to the Croswell house, where he was unconscious for several hours. After he awoke, Mr. Marlow said that the stuffiness of the passenger car might have caused the trouble. He got back on the train for Bad Axe the next morning.

The Moore and Carter lumber company advertises they can match mail-order prices for lumber and all other materials to build your house. The materials for a seven-room house shown in their ad will cost $698.50.

The Christmas rush all but swamped the railroads of the country this year. Our own Pere Marquette line was unable to keep the trains anywhere near on schedule. Family members stood for long hours in crowded stations waiting for loved ones. The Saturday evening train did not reach Croswell until Sunday morning.
