How Things Used to Get Done

It's been a while since I've mined issues of the Hudson Evening Register from 1917 for hints of what life was like in Hudson during World War I. Recently, I returned to the task. The following news item, which appeared on the front page of the paper on August 30, 1917, has nothing do to with the war, but I couldn't resist sharing it. It deals with the sort of problem we still struggle with today, but the solution is achieved in a manner a bit different from what might happen now.
