THE FREMONT COUNTY SUN. February 4, 1909. "Local News".-- Mr. Cornutt, the egg and poultry man fromClarinda, made his regular trip to Sidney, Tuesday, purchasing eggs and poultry from the farmers of the surrounding country. If there are any doubting Thomases who do not believe that there is any profit in the poultry business, they ought to come to town some Tuesday and see the chickens and eggs brought in to market.
N.B.: Eggs, poultry, chickens -- these were the arenas for the fellow following the huckster business in 1900 Fremont county. This seems to be saying that Tuesday was market day at this period of time for farmers. I am wondering how Cornutt got his purchases back to Clarinda before they froze?! Produce stations in the towns continued at least past World War II, didn't they?......If your ancestor were a farmer, in the SEARCH space type in "eggs"; "huckster" (separately, one at a time).--W.F.
