Merchants in Susanville must have been pleased with the holiday shopping rush as the paper reported “quite a good crowd of people from the valley were in town last Saturday, some of them doing their Christmas shopping.” According to the paper, shoppers came from Buntingville, Janesville, Standish and the Tules.
“The weather of the week has been at peace with the season,” the paper reported. “Monday a continuous rain fell all day, Tuesday and Wednesday were pleasant enough for May, except that Tuesday night gave promise of ice-making weather. Wednesday night, a slight fall of snow and today an unsettled condition generally.”
