A Look Back in Time: April 16, 1914

The fire department was called out around 1 o'clock this morning to battle a blaze in an empty boxcar at the Burlington yards.

Railroad employees had the fire practically extinguished by the time fire crews arrived with the hose wagon. The car was badly burned and will have to be rebuilt.

Nearly 50 businessmen sat down at today's noon luncheon of the Commercial Club. The matter of the opening up of the Crow Reservation was discussed.

Mrs. George W. Perry died at her home on West Loucks Street at about 9 o'clock this morning. She was 42. She had been ill for nearly three years, with the exception of a few months last winter. She was taken ill in August 1911 with an attack of typhoid fever.
