Out Of The Past
The Lititz Record Express
110 Years Ago
June 23, 1905
Teller - A woman hailing from Honeybrook looking worse than an old hag, passed through here last week, who claims of being possessed with the supernatural knowledge and power to foretell future events, or a so-called fortune teller and palmist, and fleeced the superstitious people out of their half dollars, and got her purse pretty well filled. It seems to us that it cannot possibly be that people in this enlightened age suffer themselves to be so enticed by these flippy and silver-tongued knights of the road, who know no more about an other person's futurity than a cow knows about Sunday school. What mere person is possessed with such superhuman knowledge and power as to be able to consult another person's futurity? We would not give a cent a bushel for such nonsense.
120 Years Ago
June 28, 1895
Wicked Mischief - On Sunday night some mischievously inclined or real wicked persons placed stones on the track of the trolley line at Neffsville. At about 10 o'clock a motorman on a car which was running from Lancaster to Lititz, discovered the stones which were lying on the main track near the turnout. The car struck one of the stones before the motorman could stop it, but very little damage was done.

Teachers Appointed - On Monday, County Superintendent Brecht named teaching appointments for Lititz, along with their salaries. They are: Howard Kyle, principle of High School, $500 for the term; Miss A. Bouine, Grammar School, $40 a month; Miss Fobes, Intermediate; Miss L. Kataper, Secondary, Miss Lottie Hacker, Second Primary. The last four are to have $30 a month. Lititz is lucky in getting teachers who are willing to labor for small wages.
Unspeakable Cruelty - A Rothsville man treats his neighbors' chickens who intrude upon his premises thus: He attaches a grain of corn to one end of a six inch strong and a small stick of wood to the other. The chicken swallows the corn and string, the stick becoming wedged at the fowl's bill. The poor chicken begins to scratch a jews-harp like music, the perpetrator little thinking of the cruelty. Perhaps he does not know that he is liable to arrest for cruelty to animals.
