Life Was Dangerous Without Electricity
We take so much for granted today with our instant lights and other convenient appliances. Looking at the Sargent Leader in the summer of 1913, I noticed two articles about accidents that occurred. One accident was because of a little boy drinking kerosene. A week later, a woman was badly burned and died from filling a heated gasoline iron that ignited into flames.
Remember, the Sargent Leader Newspaper archives are searchable and available online.
