The following news items were drawn from the archives of the Mail Tribune 100 years ago

Dec. 24, 1921


About thirty of the Yong People’s Band went out tot he county hospital last night to dispense Christmas cheer to the old folks. A committee had decorated the tree earlier in the day the final touch was to carry out the “eats” and gifts last evening. About $20 had been raised by the young people for this purpose, and it was agreed that the evident pleasure of the county’s words repaid the members of the band for the effort.

A program was given by the light of the illuminated tree.


Two days after Christmas proper that is, on Wednesday, about when gifts have begun to pall and the deadly turkey, cranberries and pie have ceased to worry us, come the big holiday hike.

Every boy old enough and able to be at the City Park at 8:30 promptly on Wednesday morning. He must have his lunch, five cents for weiners, and ten cents for car fare. The county Y. M. C. A. will do the rest. Men will be in charge and the hike will be personally conducted by Cash Wood, County Y. M. C. A. Secretary. A fine time is assured. A little fog or cold will keep back only the timid ones; the regular ones will go just the same.

Boys from Central Point, Phoenix and Jacksonville are invited.


The outlook for a white Christmas day is rather dubious following the melting away of most of the snow during last night and the prediction issued this forenoon of occasional rain or snow for tonight and Saturday. A trace of rain fell last night. The weather is growing warmer, the highest temperature of yesterday being 35 degrees and the coldest temperature of this morning being 31 degrees.


The best gift is the useful one. A “Pacific” cedar chest is an ideal gift — useful, ornamental and moth proof. Will last a life time. We have several designs at different prices on hand. Order now for Christmas. Trowbridge Cabinet Works.


While the post office will be closed next Monday except that the general delivery window will be open from 8 to 10 a.m., the city carriers will make one complete delivery Monday morning and the rural carriers will also make one delivery that day.


The Elks lodge through their committee in charge, this forenoon began the delivery of their Christmas presents of underwear, shoes and other clothing, good things to eat and the like among the needy of the city and valley.
