SOME DRUNKS ARE FUNNY - Humor was a common subject when editors needed to fill space in the paper. In the winter of 1916, the Dublin water inspector was making his rounds on a busy street. The inspector had just begun turning the handle on the water main when the unsteady hand of an imbibed individual was placed on his shoulder. The well-dressed man cried out, “Ha, ha!” With a gleam of satisfaction in his eye, the man exclaimed, “So I’ve found you at last, have I? It’s you that’s turning the street around, isn’t it?” Montgomery Monitor, August 17, 1916.
