100 Years Ago This Week (May 27, 2016)

What was going on 100 years ago this week? Here's a link to the St. Tammany Farmer newspaper edition at that time. The link is provided by the Library of Congress and its Chronicling America service. Some of the headlines: Covington High Graduates 10 in Class of 1916, Dance Recital Raises Funds For Woman's Building at the Fairgrounds, and a Public Meeting To Be Held To Discuss the Merits of a Hog Law To Keep Hogs From Running At Large In the Streets.
