Looking Back

120 Years Ago 1892

The Fairbury Gazette

Egg prices at Fairbury had dropped to nine cents a dozen; hogs were $4.50 a hundred pounds at Omaha. Ham and eggs should have helped the family food budget.

Marvin Warren's real estate was sold after mortgage foreclosure, and bids were about half the indeptedness. A 320 acre farm south of Powell brought $1,700 above the $5,700 mortgage, by H.P. Showalter; Willie Brainard bid $1,440 for Block 1 in McDowell's Addition. Twenty-five lots in Warren Place also were included.

Twenty-five men were employed by the Carpenter & Gage nursery in Fairbury. As much as $2,500 in nursery stock was shipped out in one week.

When a Fairbury baker put a delivery wagon on the street with the horses' harness adorned with sleigh bells, a local grocer threatened to equip his wagon with a steam calliope (not really).

Letters To The Editor

Deposit Your

Trash At Home

Editor:

I've been wanting to write to you about Nebraska's littering problem for a long time.

I happened to come across this article written to Sue Smith of the Country Living section in the Nebraska Farmer from years ago. It mirrors my feelings.

If someone has the time to stop for food at McDonalds or any other food establishments then they have the time to consolidate the trash from that meal and deposit it in their own trash can at home.

"Let's Keep Nebraska Beautiful!"

Rural Voices

Dislikes Litterbugs...

"Keep Nebraska Beautiful," they say. But how many Nebraskans do anything about it?
