Have you ever noticed how old newspapers functioned a lot like today's Facebook?
Just read the clipping below and you'll see what I mean. And yes, I know it is tiny. Use the zoom feature on your web browser to enlarge.
Here are a few of my favorite bits. You might recognize some old Delmar names.
"If there are any one desiring the help of an experienced cow boy, who is an experienced hand, call on C.W."
"Mr. Nathaniel Adams, an old and highly esteemed resident of this place, died Sunday morning at half past nine."
"Mr. Niles Rowe is improving slowly."
"Who ate the most chocolate cake at the reception? I know, don't you Allie?"
"It is reported that Mr. Frank Sprong has purchased a lot of Mr. Wm. LeGallez and intends building in the near future."
