100 Years Ago

Sept. 9, 1921

Has the “matinee idol,” the hero chap with the fetching smile, beau brummel features and adorable manners lost his place in the modern feminine heart? That is a question that is hard to answer. Members of the fair sex of Frederick approached on this subject by a Post reporter yesterday seemed to resent the question. The answers; “Get out of here with such fool question, you idiot.” “Trying to nose into things that don’t concern you?” “You people on the papers are wise guys, ain’t you?”

Fire starting from sparks from a threshing machine swept the barn on the farm of James M. Sappington, about a quarter of a mile north of Libertytown on the Johnsville pike, yesterday about 8 o’clock. About 25 bushels of wheat in the barn were damaged. No one was hurt.

The Frederick County Grand Jury will open its planned four-day session Monday, the day after Defenders’ Day — a legal holiday in Maryland. Defenders’ Day actually comes on Sept. 12, a Sunday, but many state and county agencies observe Monday as the legal holiday. However, nearly as many other agencies will not observe Defenders’ Day at all.

Ten of the top Pro-stock cars in the Tri-State area bit the dust as Vernon Rowley led the way in his “Duster” Friday night at the 75/80 Drag-A-Way in Monrovia.

“The answers; ‘Get out of here with such fool question, you idiot.’ ‘Trying to nose into things that don’t concern you?’ ‘You people on the papers are wise guys, ain’t you?’” Such an intriguing historical footnote to the fnp’s history 😳
