100 Years Ago -- This small news item appeared in the weekly Collinsville newspaper the day after the earthquake in San Francisco. There was a more complete account in the following week's newspaper. I was a little surprised they had news here that quickly as there was no internet, TV, radio, ...etc. They did have telephones, telegraphs, and daily newspapers delivered by rail from other states. -- Ted -- 4/18/2006
