of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 9/4/1894.
Last Saturday was an eventful day to Grantsville. To begin
everybody was duly sober and remained so during the entire day.
Ely's show was here and that attracted more or less attention,
from the outside. About 10 o'clock Dr. J.E. Snider and Alex
of Annamaria flats had some words about some trifling matter which
in a fight, each side claiming that the other was in fault. Some
time in the morning two men were thrown from horses on the Fair
but neither were seriously hurt. In a running race in the
Bob Nutter's horse flew the track but no harm was done. As the
was dispersing from the Fair Grounds, Gay Hardman and Miss Dollie
were driving quietly down the road when some parties came dashing up
them on horse back, one of the horses running into the buggy upsetting
it. The team took fright and ran away, completely demolishing
buggy and seriously, but not fatally hurting Miss Silcott. Mr.
was also bruised considerably. A social hop was given at Mrs.
Thomas in the evening which was enjoyed by all who were present.
There were many other minor happenings which we would be glad to
if we only had the space.
