Rockville Tribune, October 5, 1910
BELL, of Jackson Township, called at the Tribune office, Monday morning, as
he has done for many years during the month of October. Mr. Bell wonders if
the county would vote ‘dry’ at another option election. He says he sees more
drunken men now in his neighborhood than when the saloons were running at
Caseyville and Carbon. ‘The only way to stop it,’ said Mr. Bell, ‘is to stop
making it. As long as it is made it will be drunk.’
Mary Frances BALL and Albert S. McCAMPBELL were married at the bride’s home
in Rockville last Wednesday evening. The ceremony was impressively performed
by Rev. W. B. Chancellor, of Memorial Presbyterian Church, in the presence
of relatives of the bride and groom and a few intimate friends. After the
ceremony, a luncheon in two courses was served. Mr. and Mrs. McCampbell will
make their home on a farm two miles north of Rockville.”
