A Look Back in Time: Aug. 23, 1915

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 Aug. 23, 1915.

N.A. Pearson has purchased an electric floor sander, a device for dressing floors. This device is the first of its kind ever brought to Sheridan, and it's being used today on the floors at the new mill on Dow Street. The machine will do the work of at least four men supplied with hand floor scrapers.

Fatty Arbuckle appears in “Fido's Tin-Type Tangle,” a three-reel Keystone comedy showing tonight at the Pastime theater in Sheridan.

H.C. Krajicek has two good vacant lots for sale in Sheridan. Price is $250 each, $10 down and just $5 a month.

Among guests at the Sheridan Inn today are H.W. Yates of New York, R.C. Beatty of Pittsburg, and Allen Brown and wife from Birney.
