Out Of The Past

90 Years Ago
September 2, 1926
Appetite Killer at the Fountain
A street vendor had a stand near the fountain on Saturday evening. He gave a public demonstration of removing hard corns, soft corns, calluses or anything else in this misery class. Five men removed shoes and stockings and in several minutes a liquid which he applied, lifted out the enemy, root and all. He offered to do the same thing for the women, but evidently none of them had any trouble of this kind. A big crowd looked on with much interest. When he got thru he had quite a collection on his table, of foreign elements he removed from feet.
Not far away was a hot dog and sauerkraut stand. The owner complained that he couldn't understand why his business was so poor that evening.

After 110 Years, Some Things Haven't Changed
With this issue, The Express completes twenty-five years of continuous publication as a weekly newspaper, the first issue bearing the date September 9, 1881. It used the list of The Sunbeam, a monthly periodical started in April 1877, by E.Z. Ernst and John G. Zook, which was the first permanent publication established in Lititz. It thus has a continuous existence as a regular publication for over twenty-nine years and is the pioneer of local journalism.
The aim of the paperhas ever been to advance the public welfare of the community which it represents. While giving the local and general news within the province of a local newspaper it has enjoyed the distinction of giving advanced ideas and has been flattered by contemporaries that patterned themselves after it.
That is has made mistakes it frankly acknowledges and keenly regrets. A review of its history in detail would prove too lengthy. it has witnessed the waking up of Lititz from the "village of steady habits" as formerly referred to by a neighboring scribe, to the hustling, progressive borough that is the envy of other county towns and the talk everywhere.

The WWE News From Rothsville
A Rothsville lady recently had a quarrel with her hired girl, whereupon the girl left. A few days later she returned for her clothing, when the women of the house attempted to strike the girl with the broom. The girl, however, got the best of the bargain by striking back with her fist, dealing such a blow as to send the woman sprawling on the floor.
Hair-pulling did not take place in this instance.

* All stories are taken word for word out of the Lititz Record Express. They are credited with all research.
