100 Years Ago This Week

What was going on 100 years ago this week? The following link is provided by the Library of Congress and its Chronicling America service. CLICK HERE for a link to the St. Tammany Farmer edition of November 11, 1916. Some of the headlines are A New Depot Needed by Covington, Abita Springs Will Have Ice Plant in Short Time, and Cattle Tick Is Being Driven From State. There weren't any Veterans Day ceremonies that year because Veterans Day hadn't been invented yet. 

Here are some advertisements from that edition.
