1910: Young people make the most of moonlight skating


December 22, 1910:

C. T. Liddle has sold his furniture, undertaking and feed business to Spencer Jordan, who will continue the business at the old stand, the transfer to take place the first of the year. Mr. Liddle still retains the machinery and coal business. Mr. Jordan has been connected with the firm for some time past and is thoroughly competent to give the public the splendid service it has been accustomed to under the former proprietor. The Chief welcomes Mr. Jordan to the business circles of Iroquois and predicts for him a successful career.

The first skating of the season was indulged in last week by the lovers of the sport. During the bright moonlight evenings, the young people made the most of the opportunity to engage in this healthy sport.

December 25, 1930:

The Iroquois High School basketball team went to De Smet last Friday night and defeated the high school team of that place by a score of 17 to 8. The game was a good one, our boys making an exceptionally good showing.

December 21, 1950:

Maynard Sweet is having erected on his property north of the tracks a building 24x24 and built of cement blocks to be used in breaking up the different pieces of machinery and other worn-out material. Sweet and Mulford, as our folks know, are engaged in buying up old iron, machinery in fact anything which is discarded about the home, farm or elsewhere. During the cold weather, it is impossible to work in the cold. In the future the firm will take on car repair work.

Many of our citizens have taken great pride in decorating for the festive season of Christmas, and it would be a pleasure to drive about the city and take a look.

The Iroquois Christmas tree has been placed at the intersection in the center of the main street and is now in readiness for the big time on Saturday.
