100 Years Ago

W.C.T.U. (Women’s Christian Temperance Union) for north Idaho held its annual meeting in B.F. last week. Resolutions adopted at the meeting were: “That we are thankful for the great temperance victories of the past year, both of state and nation.” 45 states have ratified the prohibition amendment and nation-wide prohibition is to take effect Jan. 16, 1920.

A large crowd attended the dance at the Northside schoolhouse given for the benefit of the canning club. It is proposed that next year the canning club will have a building and more and better equipment. This year over 500 quarts of fruits and vegetables were put up and they are still working on orders. They are canned for the customers at slightly more than the actual cost and tin cans are used unless the customer furnishes glass jars.
