After my aunt, Ruth Komis, died in the fall of 2002, I found that she had collected and pasted so now very faded news clippings from the The Jimplicute, Scott City, MO, and pasted them on pages which she was keeping writings of her mother, Edna Drexler.
These documents are very difficult to read because they are so faded.
However, I have been retyping them into documents and making them available to other family members by posting them on this Internet page.
Many include memories from the very early 1900s of Scott City.

Letter #-01- published in the 1980s by Edna Drexler

  • Woman Hunter

    To the Editor of the Evansville Courier:

     

    In reference to the Ginger Eades in last Friday’s Courier that Tri-State women prove hunting no long a masculine domain – it must be that some women back in the earlier days must have done quite a bit of hunting.

    Back in the years of about 1910 to 1920 I enjoyed my new 20 gauge shotgun, my hunting boots, and a beret for my blonde hair) quite a lot. My husband was quite a hunter – a sure shot. As he was gone so much I asked to accompany him on his hunting trip so he agreed and bought me the complete hunting outfit, also hunting license. So really there is nothing new.

    HUNTER FROM MISSOURI
