25 Years Ago

* Rep. J. Glenn Beall, Jr. said that his office is working with the Department of Agriculture in an attempt to secure aid to the farmers in the Hampstead area whose crops were damaged by the hail storm on July 12. -- Democratic Advocate, Aug. 14, 1969.

50 Years Ago

* Carroll County lost its most popular and well known-citizen when former Senator J. David Baile died at the Union Memorial Hospital, Baltimore, where he was confined the past week for an injured hip. He was 66 years of age. He was president and manager of the widely known Medford Grocery Company. -- Democratic Advocate, Aug. 11, 1944.

75 Years Ago

* A few weeks ago, a speed officer came to town surprising several of our automobilists, while early Wednesday morning an officer of the W. M. Ry. Co. came to town and bagged four persons for trespass and leaving a warrant in local hands for the arrest of three more. The fine for each amounted to $6. It has been the custom of many for several years to go into the empty grain cars and tear the boards loose and gather the wheat which in some cases amounted to several bushels per car. We have repeatedly warned persons against this practice, as well as the violations of the motor traffic laws, and it is not likely that this will be the last visit from these officers. -- Union Bridge Pilot, Aug. 15, 1919.

100 Years Ago

* During the week, a number of persons have been arrested on charges of violating the law against trafficking on the Sabbath day by selling merchandise on and in the vicinity of Linwood camp meeting grounds, or for violating the law against selling within two miles of a camp or other religious meeting without a permit. -- American Sentinel, Aug. 11, 1894.
