Yankee Ingenuity Saves the Day in 1911

(12/03/2001)

Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 10/10/1911.

Out of an old valve for a gas lamp, Col. Wm. W. Fogle, the local trouble man, sawed a key to fit the lock on the front door of the Chronicle office.  The lock is an intricate mass of wards and springs, and the finished key reflects great credit on the skill of the artist.
