Either 1907 was a spectacular year for newsy items, or this is where I started labeling with the year as well as a description. I'm not transcribing any of these because none are directly about Heschs, they're just funny or interesting. There's one about a bear, one about logging, and even one about the weather, among other stuff. Click for legibility.
There was a "secret society" in Little Falls called the Redmen, which later became "the Improved Order of Redmen". It wasn't the only secret society in Morrison, but it was maybe the most fun for its members, even tho their theme was a disrespectful take off on Indian culture. It was a different time in history, ya know?
I always assumed towns came first, with the railroads choosing where to lay the track, thereby enriching a town or killing one too far from the tracks. According to this, tho, Bowlus, Vater and Hillman were Soo townsites.
I know the next clip is from 1908--deal with it. I'm including it cuz I already have your attention. I just wanted you to know that that spring was weird ☺.
