A Hundred Years Ago in Hudson

While combing through old newspapers looking for items that reveal life in Hudson during the Great War, I came upon the following report in the Evening Register for Wednesday, April 18, 1917, and I could not resist sharing it. It has no particular relevance to the declaration of war that happened two weeks before, but it does involve Officer Miller, a Gossips obsession in 2015.

The story teaches two lessons that are still relevant to us in the 21st century: don't make phone calls when you've had too much to drink; and don't use indecent language when you are phoning the police.
