100 YEARS AGO Nov. 7, 1912 PARAGOULD — The trials of violators of the gaming, liquor and other state laws, upon whom warrants were served the latter part of the last week and the first of this week by local officers, were begun in the court of Justice Grooms yesterday. Prosecuting Attorney M. C. Huddleston recently organized a secret band of lawabiding citizens, who have been collecting evidence against criminals of all kinds and especially violators of the gambling and whiskey laws. As a result 72 warrants have been issued so far.
