75 years ago: Union National Bank, the oldest banking institution in the county, through the urgent appeal of our businessmen to its directors, will be the first to open its doors tomorrow evening at 7 and keep open until 9 o'clock and every Saturday thereafter, at the same hours until further notice. This will give the country people an opportunity to have their checks cashed and deposit their funds. -- Democratic Advocate, Oct. 26, 1923.

100 years ago: It is not an uncommon circumstance to hear sad stories, but we question if a sadder one than the following has ever occurred in any community, which at the time of this writing is happening in the family of Mr. Cleary, a Greek, and workman at the Tannery, near this city (Westminster). Malignant diptheria of the worst type has invaded his home, consisting of himself, his wife and eight children. A son, aged 10 years, died on Wednesday. That night, the last offices paid to the dead were performed by the father alone. The mother and two of the remaining children are down with the terrible malady with no hope, the physician says, of their recovery. Cleary is a good workman and an honest man. The poor fellow, to the extent of his means and strength, is doing all that a lone man can do under such fearful surroundings. The case is of a character that demands in whatever light it may be considered the intervention of public and private help. -- Democratic Advocate, Oct. 23, 1898.
