Those newspapers once ex- isted in Plumas County. Many of their bound copies are found at the Plumas County Museum in Quincy. In giving the public a glimpse of the past and a part of its newspaper history, a four-page section is now avail- able containing front pages from each of those newspa- pers, plus an extra edition of the Feather River Bulletin printed in 1943. Greenville Bulletin It was June 17, 1885; parts of Plumas County were becoming settled, thanks to the mining boom that attracted miners, farmers and business people alike. And, as the new population settled in, it was time for a lit- tle entertainment. Coming to town was none other than Fry- er's Circus, Equescurriculum. While the name in itself pro- vided some entertainment, an advertisement that ran the full length of the front page, promised an audience much in the way of animal acts, actors and more. Feather River Bulletin On Sept. 25, 1943, in an extra edition of the Feather River Bulletin, residents of the area were called to a "Rally Tonight." It was the Quincy District's attempt to raise a $205,000 bond quota. "The Third War Loan Drive will be dramatized in Quincy tonight during an all-commu- nity 'Rally,'" according to large print on the front page. "Focal point will be a mam- moth Bond Booth erected in front of the courthouse." "It won't be there merely for decorative purposes, either. Postmaster Reuel Bar and A. E. Dale of the Bank of America and secretary of the Bond Committee, assisted by the oth- er members of the committee and a corps of typists, will have War Bonds for sale. They'll be delivered on the SpOt." Quincy Union Advertising on the front page of the newspapor may be a thing of the past, but it was .... OLhssiFiED ......

Quincy has dipped into its archives of old newspapers the public in a four-page spread. The front pages provide once a standard format and that's proven by a glance at the front page of the Quincy Union. W.W. Kellogg was the pub- lisher of the Saturday newspa- per. A subscription for a year cost $5. One square of advertis- ing with 10 lines of copy (ost $,3. Those who chose to pay the rate, and the additional $1.50 per insertion, included attor neys from Taylorsville, Neva- da Territory, Quincy, [,a Porte; a Greenville surveyor, a phys~- clan and surgeon, a Tay lorsville notary public and jus- tice of the peace, carpenters and others. Grocery stores and mercan- tiles also vied for attention with the news on the front page of the issue. That news, as in the case with most early newspapers, didn't concern the area; but brought interesting stories from other parts of the state or country. Portola Gazette A train loaded with logs graced the front page of the Sept. 2, 1911 issue of the Porto- la Gazette. While three large ads were included on the front page spread, the news had, by this time, turned to local events. One of the leading stories that week was the call for the formation of a brass band in Portola. Bands were an important part of any community in ear- ly Plumas County, and accord- ing to the article, "Prof. Sib- bets has the matter in hand. tte was endorsed by the Portola Iml)rt~veme~:l Association and the plan. ,nad , rm,: .t the committee on For more information on the !hr: b;,rM I,~q~.,)sitio~C' four-page section now avail- Tb- sU.v '.veJ)l .,,~ h~ say that able, drop by the Plumas Coun- {:1(~) v,;~< ne,(lr, d to accomplish ty Museum or call 28,3-6320. of the Plumas County Museum Odd and Unusual Artifacts Here is this week's look at one of the treasures not nor- mally o. display at the Plumas County Museum.
