Missouri spent more on fireworks than any other state.

Doesn't surprise me, I knew someone who spent over $1,000 for fireworks one 4th of July.

Several of my Missouri neighbors used to block the street at each end of our block and would go insane with hundreds of dollars of fireworks. Never mind that someone would like to use the street. The cops were called a couple times which calmed things down for about ten minutes.

Where I live now, (NM) we have fireworks but there is the added treat of people randomly shooting firearms in the air all over town. (Of course, New Year's Eve is worse because the shooters are all drunk.)

Years back I went to one of these gatherings that a co-worker was having at his house on the Fourth of July. There was plenty of drinking and the fools were throwing these big sky rockets in the air and the wind kept blowing them at this one house a few doors down.
One landed on the porch with a loud bang and this old man came out and started yelling, " what the Hell is going on?"
The idiots didn't pay any attention to him and kept throwing the rockets which were still landing around his house. About 10 minutes later the old guy came back out and started throwing loud cherry bombs or something at us.
I was glad when that night was over.

The Lincoln County Leader (New Mexico) Dec. 2, 1882 Pg1

A marble monument has been erected to the memory of Jesse James- hero and martyr. Missouri is determined to fitly enshrine the names of her illustrious dead. The revered name of Jesse James will soon appear upon her escutcheon with that of Thomas H. Benton, Frank P. Blair and Sterling Price.




The Eaton Democrat (Ohio) August 30, 1883 Pg1

Although Chicago won't believe it, St. Louis, as a city, lies in an atmosphere of poetic legend and story. Within 3 miles from the business center, on the Illinois side, at the old French town of Cahokia, generations are born, live and die who do not speak the English language.
The people are provincial in the extreme, and jealous of their French origin, customs and language. (Buffalo, N.Y. Express)




The Lincoln County Leader (New Mexico) Nov. 25, 1882 Pg1

A young lady was seriously injured in the streets of St. Louis by a cow, and now the city Fathers are at a loss to determine whether to pen up the cattle or the women.
