The Village was a very active little town during its heyday.

SomeMoreThe Village was a very active little town during its heyday.  While the dearest and best marched off to glory and fame in the Spanish-American War, the sleepy little Village contends with its daily routine of gossip and controversial activities. Some of these activities included: Bridge Rutter’s unauthorized hangings, a race involving a horseless carriage and a horse, and prize fighting between a champion and all comers!

More activities included: a legendary football team that included the famous Jim Thorpe, a stubborn mule named Rascal and an equally stubborn owner named Windy.  There was a controversial potion sold at the drugstore to juveniles, two boys forever in trouble with their parents, a swimming-hole scandal involving a gang of boys swimming in the buff, the funeral for man’s best friend at the local barbershop, a monument to the Governor’s prize full, and a Village idiot.  Also taking places were a zealous Sheriff hanging horse thieves at Willow Slough to save court costs, a woman drug out of jail and hung without trial or ceremony, a man hung by vigilantes, and a mule wreaks vengeance on an obnoxious kid with a sharp tongue and too much time on his hands.  Then there were the Village women who had their day of fame at a suffrage rally with Carrie Catt and Maud Park.

The local heroes of the War came home as enemies.
