News articles
from the 1988 Centennial Calendar
The following news items were gathered (through micro-film) from past Lind papers.
 

As a Centennial project, Karla Fowles & Carol Kelly made & designed
the Centennial Calendar to honor Lind's growth. The information was gathered with 
help from historian, Georgia Hays, who directed the journey of Lind's past, in the Adams County
Historical Society building in Lind, WA. The project was completed in time to honor
Lind's first 100 years.

COMMUNITY NEWS
1900
A local citizen took his departure to enter the Northern Indiana College of Pharmacy to be converted into a pill and posder constructor. It will take him at least a year to complete his course in college.
1901
A "lady" of exceedingly easy virtue and a "gentleman friend" with an inordinate supply of immaculate gall struck town one day last week. They pitched a tent up in the east end of town and hung out a red light. There was a kick made and the Deputy Sheriff gave them a pretty straight tip to the effect that Lind was a good town to get out of. They got.
1910
One day this week a fellow had the cast iron nerve to steal a hat belonging to our police judge. He was captured by an officer and it's presumed he will be duly executed.
1920
"The showers that fell this week have broadened the smiles of the Lind farmers by several inches. The rain last Sunday and Monday soaked the ground up considerable and will go a long way to help the wheat crop mature. Some of the early wheats are already beginning to head out."
 

SPORTS NEWS
1901

"Well, well, well; We beat Ritzville all to -------well, well well. Last Sunday the Ritzville nine and the Lind team met on the local diamond and Ritzville's hide is hanging over our back yeard fence. The local team won and the Lind is "it" with a big T---baseballistically speaking. It was a snappy little scrappy little game from start to finish and the fans had continuous earsplitting 'rooting' that would strain most anything but leather lungs!!!"

HEALTH NEWS
1903
"An undisclosed name had the piles. Doctors and dollars could do him no everlasting good. DeWitt's Witch Hazel Salve cured him and permanently. Invaluable for cuts, burns, bruises, sprains, eczema, tetter, and other skin diseases. Look for the name DeWitt on the package. All others are worthless, counterfeits. Sold at your local drug store."

WEATHER NEWS
1900
We've had a variegated assortment of cuss-provoking, weather this week. Some snow, some blow, and some great big gobs of cold!!!
1920
Can you beat it? Snow, dust, rain, and sunshine---all within an hour. Some country without a doubt.
