25 Years Ago

* A list of contributors to the organization that fought both code and charter home rule has been filed in the Carroll County courthouse. One of the major donors was Scott S. Bair Sr., father of the county commissioner. Called the Committee for Responsible Government, the group spent $1,113.50 to torpedo efforts to revise the present county commissioners' system of government. Their most controversial tactic was a flier sent out warning that charter government would install absentee government. It maintained that the charter had already been written and all that remained was to "fill in the blank." -- Democratic Advocate, Jan. 20, 1969.

50 Years Ago

* Westminster troop No. 3, Girl Scouts, are assisting in the infantile paralysis campaign for this year. -- Democratic Advocate, Jan. 21, 1944.

75 Years Ago

* One of our tinners, who is equipped to label milk cans and who has considerable work along this line, now has a number of cans on hand which he probably will hold for some time. It appears the cans referred to were brought here to be labeled but before the work was done, the real owner of the cans happened to see them and recognized them as his own. As the matter now stands, the real owner may be established in court as the state's attorney has been communicated with. -- Union Bridge Pilot, Jan. 17, 1919.

100 Years Ago

* On Tuesday evening last, a number of ladies met at the home of Mrs. G. W. Harbaugh and organized a sewing circle. The object of this is to bring the ladies, both single and married, together for an evening of social enjoyment. All have the privilege of joining in the general conversation when an opportunity is presented. All parliamentary rules are laid aside. -- American Sentinel, Jan. 20, 1894.
