Items from the Fremont Gazette 1929 by Bob Fell

Seeing Mr. and Mrs. O. N. Yeoman walking down the street is a reminder of the good old days when men were men and women admitted it. Semus (Orsemus) stalks ahead, blazing a trail through the snow, whilst back about fifteen paces Belle brings up the rear. We imagine that that's the way the Puritan fathers used to go to the meeting house. Who can deny that there's a touch of old world chivalry in this tandem style of walking?
