A Look Back in Time: March 17, 1920

Now here’s Sheridan Media’s look back in time, to 100 years ago, by reporter Pat Blair as published in the Sheridan Enterprise newspaper on March 17, 1920.

The price of coal from the mines of the Sheridan-Wyoming Coal Company took a tumble today, with local dealers quoting it for $5.25 a ton. Until today, the coal has been retailing in Sheridan for just over $6 to $6.25 a ton.

It has developed that C. A. Hill, the teamster reported mysteriously missing yesterday from the sugar company ranch, carried a savings account of $200 at a Sheridan bank, which he withdrew Friday afternoon.

County Agent H. J. Thomas visited Clearmont yesterday to aid in planning a campaign against the prairie dogs in the area.
