100 Years Ago

Attendance Not as High

Herald of Aug. 11, 1922

Attendance at the Farmers’ picnic at Henrietta was estimated between 6,000-7,000 people, but that was not as large a crowd as before. The aeroplane was a great feature, and the Century Liniment man from Lititz was a drawing card, as was the ball game. Midday rain spoiled it all.

More applications for tetanus antitoxin were made to care for Fourth of July accidents across Pennsylvania this summer than in any of the last five years. Commissioner of Health Edward Martin believed the increased demand was not so much because of more accidents, but that more people were recognizing the value of the preparation in preventing lockjaw.

David Willetts, Harry Cummings, Ralph Andrews, and Joseph Blackburn of Johnstown, convicted of robbing the First National Bank of Claysburg, were denied a new trial. Stolen securities of the bank, aggregating $21,000, were traced by detectives to New York and Boston and recovered.
