A Look Back in Time: April 21, 1917

Now here's Sheridan Media's look back in time, to 100 years ago, by reporter Pat Blair as published in the Sheridan Enterprise newspaper on April 21, 1917.

Mrs. O.L. Wertman in Sheridan has received a letter from Cheyenne announcing that Wyoming has won first place in sales per capita of Red Cross stamps at Christmas time. Sheridan was third in sales behind Cheyenne and Casper.

The street department has started flushing the sidewalks on Main street every morning in order to save the merchants the necessity of washing the walks with the hose. Commissioner Birkhaeuser had a crew dragging the streets yesterday.

E.W. Barney, A.D. Reed and C.L. Tidd, all of Sheridan, and A.G. Armstrong enlisted in the army at the recruiting headquarters here. They left today for Denver.
