Provided by the North Lyon Co. Historical Society and Museum at Admire, Kansas Reading Herald, January 29, 1909 - The medicine show which has been playing here for the past week ran a contest to determine who was the most popular young lady of Reading. Miss Ella Croll received the most votes and won a beautiful shell necklace and $3. Miss Lulu Tucker won second place. - The pool tables for the Reading Commercial Club have been received and installed. The members are now enjoying their leisure time by “swatting” the balls with their queues, only to lose their shots by “scratching”. - The U.S. Senate has passed a joint resolution empowering the secretary of war to establish harbor lines for the Kaw River. - Kansas hunters who have been shooting along the Kansas-Nebraska state line say that just over the boundary in Neb., a certain farmer has grown most awful tired of having his farm trampled over by hunters. He has hung up this sign on a couple of barrel staves: “Notis – Trespassers will be pursecuted to the ful extent of 3 mongrul dogs which aint never bin overly soshabul to strangers, and one dubbel-barl shotgun which ain’t loaded with sofy-pillars. Dam if I aint getting tired of this hell raisin on my property.” - In Leavenworth Attorney Schwartz appeared at the home of Judge Nirdlinger one evening,

and offered the judge $50 if he would give Schwartz’s case a favorable decision. The judge called the sheriff and had the lawyer brought to court for a fine and sentence. - Some of the patents issued recently: milking machine, automatic ink distributor for printing presses, cistern cleaner, door opener, cotton chopper, crude oil burner, and matchbox. - The passengers and crew of the White Star liner Republic were saved recently by use of the wireless telegraph. The ship was rammed by the Italian steamer Florida in heavy fog off Nantucket. It was sinking 75 miles from land when help arrived, help was summoned by wireless distress signals, and all aboard were transferred to other boats. The Republic later sank off Martha’s Vineyard while being towed to port. - At the risk of his own life, Fletcher Brown, hoisterman of a zinc mine near Joplin, Mo., descended into the mine and brought out five miners who were overcome by gas. All the men will recover. - A little girl went with her mother visiting one day, and after a time was given an album of family photographs to look at. She turned the leaves over carefully, and pretty soon closed the book. “Well, Dear,” asked the hostess, “did you look through the album?” “Oh, yes,” answered the little maid brightly, “and we’ve got one ‘zactly like it, only the pictures are prettier!”

The first decade of the 1900s in Emporia was marked by marvelous developments. The opera house was open three or four nights a week. The shows were cheap, generally ten, twenty or thirty cents with traveling stock companies visiting towns across the state. The moving picture was freak entertainment. It was installed in a vacant store building twenty-five feet wide and maybe fifty or seventy-five feet long with folding chairs for spectators. It projected a ten-cent show or a five-cent show, and the theater was called the Nickelodeon. The pictures were terrible, and no one who amounted to anything wanted to be caught in the Nickelodeon. Emporia had three (count them!) automobiles in town during the first decade of the century. All the automobiles did in those days was scare horses and provoke laughter. The horses, however, and the various carriages they pulled “went spinning along the dusty country roads on a summer evening, …and when the city planners put in a few blocks of paving, the whole cavalcade rode up and down that paving in the summer twilight with relish and delight.” (The Autobiography of William Allen White, p. 356). In the summers of the early decades of the last century, baseball was king. The town’s team played other towns in Kansas at Soden’s Grove, and the town gathered with noisy loyalty and great excitement, the women in their best big hats and high sleeves and wide skirts, and the men in what were called shirtwaists, tailless shirts gathered with a rubber string under the waist just inside and below the trouser top – quite fashionable and exciting. Baseball was the only public summer sport, but there was a small swimming pool in a vacant building for men only, and they wore no bathing suits. As the summer closed, the horse races at the county fairs round about attracted the populace, and half a dozen men in Emporia owned fast-steppers which often they drove themselves. The ownership of a good pacing horse gave a man distinction in the town. Emporians now numbered 10,000, and the town owned its light and water plants. The city marshal found most of his summer troubles arising from chickens that destroyed their neighbors’ yards, flower beds and lawns.

Dear Readers: Stickers aren’t just special treats for kids checking out books, though they are a lot of fun and children can ask for one at circulation. Stickers have their own place on children’s books themselves. Along with the library’s information on the book cover, special stickers on the spine add an easy-to-see reference point. These stickers offer

kids and adults a visual shorthand. Does it have a clock on the spine? It’s historical fiction. An atomic sticker refers to science and technology; horses, puppies, and dinosaur stickers help children and adults looking for specific animal stories. Stickers appear throughout the Children’s collection, and they mark special categories such as the William Allen White Award list, and the Spanish titles.

CLOVERLEAF 4-H Army bells at Bluestem and Good’s Cash Saver to help support those in need during the season of giving. Our December meeting consisted of the meeting itself, a Christmas party dinner, gift exchange, and collecting items that were

TOURNAMENTS OR OTHER BASKETBALL NEWS (For many years sporting terms were often printed as two words, in this case basketball) Provided by the North Lyon Co. Historical Society and Museum at Admire, Kansas Admire News, Feb. 28, 1907 – The double header basketball games played at the opera house Friday night were between the Fats and Leans, and the Married Ladies and High School Girls. It was one of

SAWMILL

the most successful events pulled off in the opera house in a long time. The games resulted in scores of 14 to 22 in favor of the Leans, and 32 to 16 in favor of the High School Girls. Considering that the Fats and Leans had not had much practice, they played exceptionally well. And the Married Ladies with their limited practice did well against the High School Girls, who have played in several match games.

KILN

The novelty supper given by the Ladies Aid Society after the game was one of the successful events of the season. All had plenty to eat and a good time was had by all. The ladies cleared up $9.89 with their supper, and the receipts of the basketball games netted them $13.30, which will go to their sidewalk fund and be used for improvements for the town.

Area Match-ups in History

ADMIRE NEWS SEPT. 10, 1908

NORTHERN LYON COUNTY JOURNAL, FEB. 27, 1929 BasketBall Games – The schools have returned to normal order again. At the Lyon County Basketball Tournament, Admire High School entertained the largest crowd that has ever gathered in her halls. In the game when the Allen boys played Hartford, the game score was tied, 21 to 21. In a 3-minute playoff Hartford made four goals while Allen threw only one, with a final score of 29 to 23. This was certainly a thrilling game. When the finals were played off Saturday night, even standing room was precious. The entire crowd remained to witness awards to the winning teams. First place went to Admire boys and Miller girls. The Americus girls received the 2nd place cup, and Miller boys got the basketball used in the tournament; this award alternates between 2nd place boys and girls teams each year.

The score stood at Admire 25 – Hartford 9 at the close of the basketball game at the (Admire) Opera House Friday night. On account of the train from Hartford being late into Emporia and the roads being muddy part of the way from Emporia, the Hartford girls did not get here until after nine o’clock p.m., consequently the game was late in being called. The game was a fast one from start to finish, and the Hartford girls and the Admire girls all played well. A big crowd was out to see the game and all were enthusiastic in their encouragement of the players. After the game the Admire girls served ice cream.

EMPORIA — SOS, Inc. recognizes Stalking Awareness Month this January 2022. This month we are dedicated to increasing awareness about stalking. Stalking is intentionally or recklessly engaging in a course of conduct targeted at a specific person which would cause that person to fear for their or their family member’s safety. Stalking is a crime in Kansas. Locally, SOS is the only accredited nonprofit organization that provides free and confidential services to victims of stalking, as well as domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse, and human trafficking. For 2020 through 2021, SOS had 469 helpline calls and provided services to 260 adults and youth who reported stalking to advocates in its service area of Lyon, Chase, Coffey, Morris, Osage, and Greenwood counties. Most clients reported stalking by current and former partners, but about 100 reports were of strangers stalking the individual. Stalker tactics are unwanted repeated behaviors that make in-

dividuals concerned for their wellbeing and safety. A few tactics include but are not limited to: following the person; showing up unexpectedly wherever the person goes; watching the person at their home, school or work; trespassing on their property; unwanted gifts; repeated phone calls, texts, and messaging; and cyberstalking using media or tracking devices on the person’s cell phones or cars. Often, victims see an escalation in stalkers’ behaviors, which prompts victims’ feelings to rise from annoyance to fear. In its most severe form, stalkers will attack or murder their victims. For more information on stalking or to discuss options for victims to consider, contact SOS at 620-342-1870 or 800825-1295 to speak with an SOS advocate if you are needing help. Services for Greenwood County residents are now covered by El Dorado’s Family Life Center of Butler County, 316-321-7104 or 800-8706967.
