1884 Wooden Leg

There are so many interesting little tidbits that can be found in the early issues of The Fowlerville Review. This is definitely one of them. G.L. Adams republished a short article that had been printed in the Ft. Gratiot Sun, and then he posed a question.

A woman with a wooden leg was in town Tuesday, and she wanted to find a saloon. The sidewalk was already too narrow for her to preregrinate with steadiness and safety.~~Ft. Gratiot Sun

The question naturally arises how did that editor know that woman had a wooden leg? Please arise and explain, Brother Soults.

Was the question ever answered?
