A Look Back in Time: Oct. 8, 1918

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 Oct. 8, 1918.

Senator John B. Kendrick, Verner Z. Reed and Peter Kooi and the Kooi Coal Company have made subscriptions of $25,000 each to the Fourth Liberty Loan in Sheridan county.

Mr. B. Gross, who has lately returned from a business trip to Chicago, reports a shortage of graders and other help in the wool trade at the eastern centers.

Acting under instructions from the state board of health, all public schools, churches, theaters and other places of public meeting in Sheridan will be closed tomorrow morning and will remain closed until the epidemic of Spanish influenza here has subsided.
