75 years ago: At the call of T. W. Mather, Jr., Charles W. Klee and C. Edgar Nusbaum, well-known businessmen and boosters of Westminster, about 75 citizens from this city gathered at the Firemen's building Wednesday afternoon to consider and hear the views of the businessmen about forming a Chamber of Commerce for this city. -- Democratic Advocate, July 25, 1924.

100 years ago: One of the most daring highway robberies ever in this county was perpetrated on the public road half a mile southwest of Marston at 2 o'clock last Monday afternoon. William or "Billy" Wood, as he is familiarly called, a man nearly 80 years old, was assaulted by a strange young colored man, who robbed him of his pocketbook containing $25, and also of about $4 which he had loose in his pockets. Securing the money, he fled across the fields toward Mount Airy, and was seen later several miles near that place. -- American Sentinel, July 22, 1899.
