In a "Scratch Pad" column about Salisbury's old water standpipe, Daily Times editor Dick Moore included the following:
We got a postcard from the Rev. R. Cephia Perdue of Pocomoke City who recalled hearing the great orator, William Jennings Bryan, speak on that very site in 1897. He (Bryan) was a candidate running against President William McKinley. The standpipe was not there then. But in 1908 the Rev. Mr. Perdue recalls going with a cousin, A.W. Perdue, to the standpipe and the latter climbed to the top of it.
Footnote: A.W. Perdue was the father of Frank Perdue of poultry industry notoriety.

Young Billy Ross and Clifton Dennis, out hunting with new Christmas rifles, bagged a three-foot, nine-inch allegator- about as common in Maryland as patting a polar bear.
The gator is believed to have escaped from a circus visiting here last year.
