NEWS FROM 100 YEARS AGO
Friday, 3-13-1914, The Otoe Union:
"Miss Charlotte Stilwell entertained all the young people who
assisted in the play given at District #102 (Orchard Hill) with a
light meal. The rest of the evening was spent in playing flinch,
roodles, and Bunco and at last winding up the evening by
everyone telling a ghost story. Several quite thrilling tales
were told and some of the guests became too frightened to
go home alone."
