What Stocktonites Were Doing 98 Years Ago

Body
A quiet wedding recently occurred at the home of Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Maris when their daughter, Miss Rae became the bride of Mr. E. C. Hageman. The ceremony was performed by Reverend J. F. Dennis. After a bounteous wedding supper the couple went to Phillipsburg and from there to Aleman where they were spending the week with a sister of the groom. The bride has for a number of years had full charge of the dry goods, ready-to-wear and millinery departments of the big Maris Department Store, quickly developing into a very capable business woman and being the mainstay of her parents. Her acquaintance over the county is large and she is held in high esteem by many friends and admirers. The groom is a substantial businessman of large experience. For some months he has conducted with singular ability the grocery department of the establishment and on the eve of his union with the gracious daughter of the house, he becomes the owner of this department through purchase. After their short honeymoon, he will take possession of the grocery side, while Mrs. Hageman will continue as the manager of the other side, making a very happy arrangement. Everybody wishes for them a long and happy life under their new conjugal relationship.

What Stocktonites Were Doing 98 Years Ago

Body
Lloyd Clifton, 32 years old, was murdered by his father, J. T. Clifton, who fired five times at him with his revolver, three of the shots taking effect. Clifton and his son were living together on a farm in Graham County. At breakfast, the younger man asked to have some eggs cooked. His father returned, saying if they ate them now they would have to buy them later on. Lloyd then went to the henhouse to get some eggs. His father followed and opened fire with his revolver. Leaving his son writhing in his death agonies on the ground, the inhumane father reloaded his gun, put it in his pocket, returned to the house where he ate his breakfast and washed the dishes. Discovery of the crime was soon made and sheriff Carl Peterson and ex-sheriff W. F. Jones went out to arrest the old man. As he had a bad record as a fighter, Jones crept up behind and threw his arms around him, pinning his arms so he would not reach his gun. He said he never did so much bear hugging as this time. In his position, Peterson disarmed him. W. H. Clark, county attorney of Sheridan County, appeared as his attorney and asked for a commission to inquire as to Clifton’s sanity. This was granted and the report will be made later in October. Clifton was tried in 1910 or 1912 in Judge Smith’s court and sentenced to a term in the penitentiary for assault with attempt to kill, which he served.
