Sycamore's Electric Park-- Part 4: Bug Six

Baseball teams played at the park.  One of them was the Grove's Cotts and another the Bug Six named after a cereal company that sponsored the team.  (I don't know that I would buy a cereal named bug.)

There was also advertising on a barn at the east end of the park.  It was painted by a man named Cheetham.  On it there were two men and one says to the other:  "Have a cigar, my dear Alphonso."  The other replies:  "Certainly, if it's Bell of Sycamore,"

This was a cigar made in Sycamore.

I was unable to find out anything more about a Bug Six cereal or Bell of Sycamore cigars.
