A Look Back in Time: Oct. 29, 1917

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 Oct. 29, 1917.


Approximately 100 men are now scouring the Little Goose region in search of Roy Snyder and Alvin Sutton. The two men were lost in the blizzard on Saturday and are now believed to have perished. The two, accompanied by Floyd Bard, went out for deer hunting Saturday afternoon. Bard became separated from the other two after they sighted a deer.

In spite of the zero weather, over 70 ladies are at work this morning securing food conservation pledges from the housewives of Sheridan.

The thermometer at the Sheridan Weather Bureau registered 12 degrees below zero at 6 o'clock this morning. That's the lowest reading reached during the 24 hours.
