July 22,  2017 - Bathing Beauties and Nancy Alice Emery=

GIRLS & BOY

SHOPTALK: I just have to say that the pic of 5 bathing beauties with the little boy on the beach (probably Main Street) is a true favorite of mine. They appear happy – having a good time – and I like that. But gosh those bathing clothes must have weighed them down when they got wet. The one girl even has a hat.

It’s been some time since I went to the beach during summer. The last time I was at Lakeview Park in Lorain and I almost fell over when several girls walked in front of me. I can’t believe what they weren’t wearing.

Times have certainly changed. And I’ve become a dirty old man.

The little gal on the shoptop this week is my sister Nancy Alice Emery long before she was Nancy Alice Emery. She I certainly engross in a big dish of ice cream. Yum, yum. I think it runs in the family.

By the way, I think we still have the chair in which she is sitting. You will see it when you visit the museum.

LIMPING ALONG: Boy, I’m raring to get to work at home and at the museum. But my get up and go (as my late father-in-law George Diener would say) got up and went.

I don’t know how long it’s going to take for me to get back to “normal”. My rehab is taking too long and I have things I both need and want to get accomplished before Labor Day.

Fortunately, I like to read because that’s about all I’ve really been able to satisfactorily accomplished since the beginning of June. The Doctor told me that there were “no restrictions” re: my new hip both before and after surgery. But that’s not really the truth. Some things, like moving a big heavy buffet, should be strictly prohibited.

On the other hand, I’ve not had a vacation for at least 20 years. So maybe this is a good thing.

KAYAKING: One of the many things I notice while sitting on the porch of our new old home at the Olympic Club by the Vermilion River are the plethora of kayaks going up and down the stream. It’s really become a favorite pastime for a good number of people – young and old.

I note that there’s one fella with a very long kayak who really kicks it when he goes past. I assume he’s preparing himself for a race or something. His kayak is a single (some are doubles), but it’s about 2 or three times the size of a normal one.

The pic above is my wife’s toy. Sometimes she gets up early and rolls it over by the river and takes a ride up to the shale banks and then back down to the club’s new property at the former Rini marina.

I’ve never kayaked. It sounds like some fancy carnal activity – funny.

Historically,

REV. AND MRS. ENGLISH: Reverend Earl T. English and his wife Zella served the First Congregational Church in Vermilion (officially) from 1927 to 1956. Mr. English actually served the church until shortly before his death in 1974. Zella was a Vermilion schoolteacher. She died in 1985. They are pictured here near the front door of the church parsonage on the northwest corner of Ohio and Washington streets c. 1940. The couple had two children: Jean and Robert.

Although this pic doesn’t show it (because it’s not in color) Rev. English always wore a red necktie. I don’t know the significance of that observation however. Perhaps it was just a favorite color.

They were great folks and very well known in our little town.

YOUR DADDY WAS THE MILKMAN: In the yesteryear it used to be an off – but very soft – colored jest to tell a friend “Your daddy was the milkman”. Today the insult likely falls flat for most persons too young to remember the days when milk and sundry other dairy products were actually delivered right to your doorstep fresh from your local dairy. And it wasn’t until Vermilionite Nancy Kneisel-Tate donated the handy-dandy dairy ordering note gadget to the local history museum that I was reminded of those days and just how much things have changed over the last 50 years. Where does the time go?

Years ago after your milk bottle was emptied you’d wash it and set it out on your porch. In the morning the milkman would come by and replace the empty with a full bottle. As one can see, using the little note gadget, you would turn up a product that you wanted to purchase, stick it in the top of the empty bottle and – presto – the milkman would leave it on your porch. There were, however, some drawbacks to this process.

One of the problems with leaving the milk on the porch for any length of time was that prior to the time when most milk was homogenized it was not uncommon to go to pick up a full bottle from the porch to find that the cream had risen to the top forcing the paper cap off the bottle leaving a mess behind. Although homogenizing isn't done for health reasons; it's simply a process that shrinks the cream globules and makes them blend in the milk. Some people prefer their milk to have an even texture; it's a personal preference. Others believe non-homogenized milk tastes better and like the cream top. [My personal preference is homogenized – not chunky – milk.] After a time one could acquire a galvanized metal insulated box that would hopefully forestall, or at least delay, the aforementioned mess altogether.

The Maurer-Wikel dairy once located on South Street just east of the old South Street School was the primary source of quality dairy products – commercial and residential – for Vermilion and many other communities in Erie County for at least three decades. There were, of course, other dairies in the area before Maurer’s, but none lasted so long. In the 1960s Ralph Reiter and his son Harold purchased the Maurer operation as well as twenty other small dairies around northern Ohio eventually closing the local business, and another page in local history was turned.

One of my brothers (Al) went to work for the Maurer dairy in his early teens as a “jumper” on the milk delivery trucks. A “jumper” rode in the milk truck with the driver and when they made their stops at homes and businesses they would help carry the products to the customers and bring the empties back to the truck. Brother Al was a good and very dependable worker. He liked it so much that he continued to work for the dairy throughout the 50s until shortly after Reiter bought it. Just a few names of those that I recall working there years ago were: all the Maurers (of course), John Goolsby, Howard Bogart, Mr. Spicer, Dave Wilkes, the Boone boys, and Ron Millis. There were many more.

The dairy was really a very cool place, both figuratively and literally. When I was a teen, there were basketball courts behind the school next door where a group of my friends used to play half-court basketball during the summer. It was a hot exercise. So at some point we’d pool our funds and have someone go over to the dairy to buy pint bottles of chocolate milk or orange drink. In those days very few places were air conditioned, but the dairy – probably out of necessity – was literally a very cool place. So buying a cold drink was not only a treat. So was going into the dairy office to buy it.

Now, back to “Your daddy was the milkman”. Because it was the nature of the work for the milkman to visit homes at a very early hour when the lady of the house was alone in the kitchen…well methinks you get my drift. But facts be known there was scarcely time for any amorous rendezvousing. Refrigerated trucks were not made available until about 1954. Prior to that time packed ice kept the products cold. So, in short, time was of the essence when it came to delivering dairy products. At least that’s what my dad always told me.

Vol. XIII, No.6. - VERMILION, OHIO, THURSDAY, July 22, 1909

NARROW ESCAPE

Two Cars On The LSE Come Together At Barne's Siding.

The limited car, which leaves Vermilion at 4:55 PM met with a disaster at Barne’s Siding Friday, which might have resulted in a great loss of life. The car from Norwalk had taken the siding to let the limited pass when from [sic] some reason that car failed to stay on the main track. It entered the switch and crashed into the local.

The company have been investigating the cause of the wreck. The report that the switch was left open carelessly, is denied. It is said that the probability is the switch points had been sprung preventing it's closing perfectly.

William F. Rickley, motorman on the limited car was seriously crushed but at last reports was out of danger. Alonzo DeMaris, conductor on the limited had his foot crushed and received some internal injuries. They were taken to their homes at Sandusky. Motorman Jargo, of the local and the one who is thought to be the responsible for the open switch has disappeared, so it is reported. Two lady passengers were quite badly bruised and cut by broken glass.

Later reports from Lorain states that Jargo is at home in that city and had not skipped out. He says he was conductor on that run instead of motorman as reported. When the subject of open switch was broached he was silent on the subject.

Are They Blackhanders?

Three Sicilians were arrested last Thursday charged with robbing their fellow countrymen who are in the employ of the L. S. & M. S. Ry. They gave names but their accusers say that they knew them in their old home and there they went by different names.

It seems that they entered one of the boarding cars and at the point of 38 cal. revolvers demanded money. They wanted $10 per head but as workman said they did not have so much took all that could get and concluded to wait until the rest could be raised. Later several of the foreigners reported the matter at the L. S. Station and the authorities were notified and the three fellows were jailed. Friday morning Mayor Williams held court and by means of an interpreter learned enough to warrant the binding the three men over under $1000 bonds each. Each of the men had money and a good 38 cal. hammerless revolver.

The Marshall and a deputy took the men to Sandusky in the afternoon. The foreigners here are rather worried over the matter, especially as it is claimed that only a portion of the gang was captured here.

FELL 20 FEET

Will Sleight, a roofer from Cleveland fell from the roof of F. W. Wakefield's new house last Friday and sustained severe injuries. One of his wrists was badly cut, both ankle sprained, and he was otherwise bruised. He was removed to the house of Philip Englebry where he had been rooming and Dr. Pelton called. He was able to be up for a short time yesterday and under the tender care of Mrs. Stevens and Mrs. Englebry hopes to be able to be taken to the home of his sister in Cleveland by auto, on Saturday. His sister visited him here this week.

AUTO ACCIDENT

An auto accident, which might have resulted more seriously occurred Tuesday near Ceylon Jct. J. B. Woolson, former president of the Woolson Spice Co., Toledo accompanied by members of his family and friends and a colored chauffeur were crossing the L.S.E. tracks when the motor stopped. A car was coming down the track and the occupants scrambled out. The motorman applied the brakes but was unable to stop the car until it struck the auto. The machine was badly damaged.

[NOTE: Woolson, a Berlin Heights native, had become a millionaire (big money in 1907) by selling pre-roasted and packaged coffee to markets across the U.S. He kept a home in Toledo and one somewhere near Berlin Heights. His wife was a Tillinghast.]

DANGEROUS CROSSINGS

Nearly every day people on foot and in conveyances have narrow escapes. What is the reason? The numerous trains and the switching back and forth of work trains makes the various crossings unusually dangerous and it is very necessary that both the gateman and the traveler be more cautious and avert the tragedy is otherwise sure to come.

BOUND OVER FOR ASSAULT

Courtney Purcell claiming Bakersfield, California is his residence, was arrested Sunday at Crystal Beach. The charge placed against him was for assault. Monday, Mayor Williams brought him over and he was taken to Sandusky. He is a one-armed man and it is alleged he drew a razor.

Base Ball

Vermilion now has a ball team composed of all home talent excepting Sonnedecker, pitcher. This new team will cross bats with the Huron club next Sunday afternoon at Crystal Beach grounds. Game called to 2:30 sharp. Admission 25c. Ladies free.

Procuring Options

It is reported that the L.S. & M.S. Ry. Co. is securing options and property south of their tracks from Division St., West. There seems to be about as many rumors regard to what is to be done as there are persons, but no one really knows other than the officials. In all probability the sharp curve west of town is to be greatly modified, as has been the policy of the company all along the line.

Jenny Wilson, a milliner of East Liverpool drowned herself in 20 inches of water Monday.

John Gay, s farmer at Beaver Dam Md., is the father of thirty children, twenty sons and ten daughters, the oldest…[sic] the youngest two, 21 of the children are living.

John Rudolph, 11, of Sandusky stepped on a piece of glass cutting his foot some two weeks ago. The wound healed. Sunday he died from lockjaw.

That the electric Road has become an important factor in the transportation facilities of the country is proven by the accomplishment of the Lake Shore Electric railway on Saturday. Without interfering with the running of the regular local and limited cars on schedule time and the provisions of ample electric power, that line furnished 22 extra cars on Saturday to carry the employees of the H. Beck & Co. Cloak factory, Cleveland, to Linwood Park and return. The firm gives its employees and annual outing and fifteen hundred men and women enjoyed the excursion and the day at the popular Vermilion resort.

The cars are left from Public Square, Cleveland, within a few minutes of each other between 7:30 and 8:30 AM and the trip to the park and returning was made without mishap or delay. It was the largest electric excursion ever run out of Cleveland and one of the largest of the season out of that city on any road. It undoubtedly makes a new record for trolley excursions in this state and few electric lines in the country are equipped with cars and power to handle that number of people in so short a time.

Clyde Wood, the plucky Marshal of Greenwich, who was shot through the lungs last fall by a bank robbers, is reported in a dying condition.

This is homecoming week in Norwalk and a large crowd is being entertained, Gov. Harman is there today and tomorrow.

HISTORY OF ERIE COUNTY

CHAPER XI.

…much resistance the steamer passed into charge of the piratical crew of boarders and was turned back toward Middle Bass Island, where a landing was made.

About this time the Island Queen reached the dock at Middle Bass, but no sooner had she touched than she was boarded and captured, not, however, without a stout resistance from her commanding officer and the engineer, but both were overpowered, the latter being shot in the face. On board the Island Queen was a party of about a hundred recently discharged soldiers on their journey home, but being without arms were powerless in the face of a score or more of heavily loaded revolvers in the hands of determined, desperate men. The Queen was scuttled and sent adrift, after which the prow of the Parsons was turned toward Sandusky Bay. After cruising about for a long time, anxiously watching for the proper signal from the land party supposed to have been successfully organized by Cole, Beall wanted to make the attempt at rescue without the assistance of Cole's co-operating force, but knowing the power of the Michigan's guns, and fearful of the result, Beall's desperate crew weakened and declined to take the chances. Disheartened and discouraged, the daring leader reluctantly put about and made for the Canada side, where the steamer was abandoned and her former crew released from their temporary imprisonment.

This was the only open attempt made to effect [sic] the rescue of the officers confined on Johnson's Island, and it proved a dismal failure. What the result would have been, had Cole's effort proved successful, is wholly a matter of speculation. Several prominent citizens of Sandusky were soon after arrested and charged with complicity in this attempt. They were temporarily confined on Johnson's Island but afterward released. Cole was also subsequently released. But Beall seems to have been less fortunate. He was captured near Supension Bridge, on the New York side, and taken to New York and confined on Governor's Island.

Beall was charged before a military court with the seizure of the steamer Philo Parsons, with the seizure of the steamer Island Queen: with being a spy in the employ of the rebel service, and with an attempt to wreck an express train between Buffalo and Dunkirk, in New York State, for the purpose of robbery. He was tried, found guilty, and sentenced to be hanged. The day fixed for his execution was the l8th of February, 1865, but that the mother of the condemned man might have an opportunity of seeing her son once more in life. President Lincoln granted a respite for six days. Beall paid the penalty of his crimes on the 24th of February 1865, on Governor's Island, in New York Bay.

Upon the occasion of the trial of Beall, as a part of his defense, there was produced a letter from that old arch traitor, Jefferson Davis, in which he asserted that these acts, meaning Beall's exploits upon the border, were committed by his authority, and should be recognized as the acts of "lawful belligerents." Without doubt they were recognized as the acts of belligerents, but the…

VERMILION ARTIFACT #260

BATES STAPLER RERUN: I’ve used this particular item in the past. It’s an intriguing item. Manufactured by the Bates Mfg. Co. of Orange, New Jersey around 1931 this baby made / makes its own staples. According to a product description, “There are three basic and important improvements in this new model stapler. The base and the body are more heavily reinforced, the new patented refill can be quickly and easily inserted, with all separate parts eliminated, and last, the new wire refill is tangle proof and it is impossible for the wire to become snarled or loosened.”

It’s really a cool little item – on display at the Vermilion History Museum.

CAN’T GET NO SATISFACTION

Standing on the shore, a Jewish lady watches her grandson playing in the water. She is thunderstruck when she sees a huge wave crash over him. Because when it recedes, the boy is no longer there - vanished!

Screaming, she holds her hands to the sky and cries, "Lord, how could you? Have I not been a wonderful mother and grandmother? Have I not scrimped and save so I could tithe to the Temple and contribute to B'nai Brith? Have I not always put others before myself? Have I not always turned my other cheek and loved my neighbors, have I not ...?"

A deep loud voice from the sky interrupts, "Enough already, give me a break!'"

Immediately another huge wave appears and crashes on the beach. And when it recedes, the boy is standing there, smiling, splashing around as if nothing ever happened.

The deep loud voice continues, "I have returned your grandson. Are you satisfied?"

Grandmother responds, "He had a hat."
