That’s where the toothbrush was invented. If it was invented anywhere else, it would have been called the teethbrush.
Are we having fun yet?

@FISH  No, I just get everything online, mostly from the Library of Congress because their material is copyright free.  I draw on the Argus for many news articles because I like its reporting style.  There used to be a Chicago newspaper called the Day Book but it went out of business.  I am convinced that some of the reporters were hired on at the Argus (also from the Chicago area) because I could see similar writing styles between the two papers.
