The Centerville Citizen - January 4, 1873

  Lincoln Township -- A friend at Jerome sends us the following items:  The Christmas Tree entertainment at Jerome gave general satisfaction.  Old Santa Claus was there and distributed his good things among the little folks quite freely. --The epizootic* is there, but in a mild form. --A dog found its way home from Omaha, Nebraska, a few days ago.  
  [*For information on The Great Epizootic of 1872 see Running Like Wildfire by CuChullaine O'Reilly FRGS and the article in Wikipedia on equine influenze.]
