100 Years Ago
January 22, 1915

Three boys from town, who were hunting Wednesday on the Lon Kinnick farm with three dogs, came near causing Lon the loss of a valuable hog. The dogs, two of them bulldogs, chewed the sow up badly. The boys tried to beat the dogs off with the butt of their guns but were unable to do so though breaking the stock of their guns. Town dogs appear to have no sense about stock. If a hog or any other animal runs from them, they take after it. Country dogs, used to stock, know better. Lon has warned all hunters to keep off his place.
