Other days

100 YEARS AGO Dec. 31, 1913 Tonight the whole of Argenta will hold a watch party. Plans have been made by dozens of households for parties and dances to celebrate the coming of the New Year and to see the Old Year depart. Nearly every one in town will attend the different functions, where they will dance or play games until the New Year comes in. Seldom has Argenta as a whole given over in one night to such revelry, but as the preparations show, tonight will be one to be long remembered. At every corner of the town tonight there will be a watch party.
