100 Years Ago is brought to you by the Kilmer Mansion.

100 years ago today, the harvest in Broome County this season has not been good. Cold weather and heavy rains have had a disastrous effect on local yields of oats, corn and potatoes.

40,000 cattle are being tested in Broome County as part of a program to eradicate bovine tuberculosis.

The American Legion Band of Binghamton Post 80, will give a concert at Courthouse Square tonight.

Plans are being made to build a new public comfort station at the Courthouse Square.

Finally, the second annual Field Day and Corn Roast will be held for employees of the New York Telephone Company this Saturday. Events will include a potato race, a pie-eating contest, a pop-drinking contest and a fat men’s race.

And that was the news 100 years ago.
