Thought End Of World Had Come

"A strange light in the northern skies, taking the shape of a comet, then various fanciful outlines the other evening made the superstitious people of this village believe the end of the world was at hand. Several families spent the night in chairs with wraps on, in fear of the phenomenon. In the morning it was discovered that the cause was a fire in Hustisford." - "Thought End Of World Had Come," La Crosse Tribune (March 19, 1908).
