Poor Mr. Spickerman, His Car Stolen
From the February 8, 2017, MidWeek "Looking Back."
1917, 100 Years Ago.
"Andrew Spickerman of Malta has just purchased a new Ford car, and in fact had just been taught how to successfully operate the machine.
"Yesterday morning early someone came along, tired of walking, and knowing that Mr. Spickerman had a new car, broke into the barn and started out with the car. Neighbors heard the car leaving the barn, but did not pay any attention to it until later when the alarm was spread."
