50 years ago: "The battle for yellow margarine is on the rampage again and all signs seem in favor of margarine tax repeal. This subject will not be a new one to many members of dTC Congress. The 80th House of Representatives voted to repeal these taxes and it was only lack of time which prevented the Senate from acting. A united consumer campaign, backed by radio and newspapers, will fight for yellow margarine, as before. No doubt that butter interests will bring out all the old weapons to try to protect butter in the guise of "protecting" consumers. -- the Pilot, Nov. 26, 1948.

100 years ago: Miss Emma Bennett, teacher of Class No. 5, Wesley Chapel Sunday School, presented each of her scholars with a chrysanthemum plant and promised a prize to the one who should have the best flower when the plants bloomed. The boys with their flowers gladly met at the home of their teacher. After presenting their flowers, games, music and social conversation were indulged in until 10 o'clock, when all were invited to the dining room, where sandwiches, cake, fruit, tea, coffee and chocolate were served. One young gentleman (?) showed peculiar taste for a "mixed drink," that being a combination of tea, coffee and chocolate, which he drank to the health of those present. -- Democratic Advocate, Nov. 26, 1898.
