Celebrating history: More news on women


December 12, 2014

Women and women’s issues dominated the local news in the Hingham Review’s Dec. 11, 1914 issue. For this 49th installment celebrating the 150th anniversary of Montana Territory and 125th anniversary of statehood, we read:


Literary is progressing nicely and the little school house is always filled. Last Wednesday a splendid program was given, followed by a debate on the subject, “Resolved, That ladies are more successful as teachers in the public schools than men,” which was carried by the negative disputants, J. J. Dumas, R. Brownlee and Alfred Hillier. The affirmative speakers were Mr. Hillier, Sr., Mr. Kiffe and Harold Weaver. On Wednesday, the 17th, we will listen to a mock trial, which we believe will be interesting. We would like to see people from Hingham present occasionally.


The editor will leave tomorrow for western points for a few weeks’ vacation. During his absence the Review will be left in charge of Miss Freda Hogenson, and any business you may have with this office can be transacted with her. She will also have her duties at the post office to perform, and you will therefore be as brief as you can in our dealings with her for this office. The type will be set by a machine at Havre and all copy must be handed to her in time to be sent on No. 4 Wednesday. No copy will be taken later in the week than that. It will not be possible to have any ads changed during our absence, or to get any job printing done by the Review. There is a job printing office at Rudyard and one at Gildford; patronize one of these while we are gone. We do not want amateurs to handle our material while we are away. Editor Cormany of the Rudyard Dispatch will come down each Friday to print and mail the Review.

Some Bargains

The M. E. Ladies’ Aid had a good many articles left from the rummage and apron sale, which will be on sale for the next two weeks at the Park Hotel. The articles consist of boys’, mens’, women’s and children’s clothing and underwear, also some very good heavy coats for men, women and girls. All these articles are in good condition and will be sold very cheap, from 5 cents to $1. Farmers’ wives are requested to come and look these articles over. They will find articles suitable to make over for children, which they can get for a few cents. This will make cheap clothing for the children, and the few cents paid will help our church work. We also have a little left from the food sale, such as made mustard at 5 cents a glass, spices at 5 cents a 1oz., vinegar at 2 quarts for 15 cents.-M. E. Ladies’ Aid.

The bell for the school building arrived yesterday and has been hung in the tower. It is a deep sounding, musical bell, and will have many a glad tiding to proclaim to the youngsters of this vicinity.
