A Look Back in Time: Jan. 21, 1914

Now here's Sheridan Media's journey back in time report from one hundred years ago.

Here's what The Sheridan Enterprise newspaper reported on this day, Jan. 21 of 1914.

Sheridan Electric Company created one of the handsomest window displays ever made in the city for its office on Main Street. Small Indian rugs were scattered liberally over a carpet of green and white crepe paper. The front of the window was decorated with potted plants, ferns, evergreens and other greenery, while in the back, two bay trees supported the company's banner urging people to “Do It Electrically.”

County Assessor Morris announced changes in live stock assessment rates from previous rates. Coming yearling calves would be assessed at $18 for 1914, $3 more than the previous year, and yearling cattle assessments went up $5, from $30 to $35 for the current year. Other assessments announced included $300 for purebred stallions, and $200 for large jackasses used for breeding. Common milk cows were assessed at $35, bulls and other purebred cattle at $25.

Grocer Bob Terry announced the upcoming grand opening of his new store in the Metz block. Displays included Folger's Golden Gate coffees and teas, for which Mr. Terry was the agent.
