Observations from the archives, 1964: Bank installs high-speed equipment
1914, 100 years ago: The fourth annual corn show under the auspices of the Agricultural Department of Alexandria High School will be given at the high school building. The J.I. Case Plow Co. will give the grand sweepstake prize, a $45 corn planter. This prize has been secured through the aid of W.T. Wilson, and a local firm, Alexandria Hardware and Lumber Co. Send in your corn to H.L. Popenoe in care of the high school. Be sure your corn is marked.
