50 years ago: Westminster Fire Co. was the winner of the first prize of $50 at the annual Union Bridge Fireman's carnival parade last Friday evening. This was one of the finest parades in the company's history. The carnival gross receipts were nearly $7,000. -- Democratic Advocate, June 10, 1949.

100 years ago: Three men, whose names and residences are unknown, had a hearing before Justice J. Hoffman Fuss yesterday morning on a charge of using a device for gambling on the streets of this city on Thursday. The device was a slot machine worked with marbles. Justice Fuss gave the men the names of John Doe, Samuel Hill and Charles Jones. The evidence against Doe and Jones was insufficient to hold them and they were discharged. Hill was committed for court. Later he said his name was Charles Gray. -- American Sentinel, June 10, 1899.
