Turning Back the Pages

Daily newspaper goes modern

The Glens Falls Post-Star has installed a new Goss web perfecting press which has a speed of 20,000 copies per hour and will print four, six, eight, ten, twelve or sixteen pages simultaneously in one or two colors. The press will be used for the first time Sunday, May 21, 1911 to produce a 16-page newspaper. (Note: The Morning Star ceased publication following its merger with the Morning Post in 1909 to become The Post Star, a morning daily newspaper. Allen Eddy was editor.)

News roundabout

Potato bugs are feasting on the tender young plants in gardens. Between the bugs and the weather it looks as though there won't be much of a crop of tubers this year as it has been very hot and dry. If at first you don't raise anything from your garden and flower bed, try, try again. William Daggett of Warrensburgh has been selling tomato plants in Athol.

The Maplewoods baseball team of Warrensburgh defeated the Glens Falls High School team 4-3 in a 10-inning game May 26, 1911 at the Warrensburgh Fairgrounds in one of the best games seen in many a day. The attendance was discouragingly small leaving the management $4 in the hole.
