Rockville Tribune, October 5, 1910 


  • “R. M. 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.’ 

  • Miss 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.”
