Farm Lost by Not Taking Chronicle in 1911


Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 6/6/1911.

F.J. McCulty had a practical experience last week of what a man sometimes loses by not taking his county papers.  His farm on Sycamore was sold for taxes a year or so ago, legal notice of which was published in the Chronicle together with the name of the purchaser and the notice that the owner could redeem same within one year.  Mr. McCulty did not take the Chronicle and consequently knew nothing of the sale.  F.S. Wilson was the purchaser, and Mr. McCulty gave $400. and all the oil and gas to get his farm back.  This is only one instance of many we could cite where a man loses money by not taking the Chronicle.  Only recently Arch Price had an almost identical experience as the one above cited.  We sincerely sympathize with Mr. McCulty in his loss.
