The "Dog" Ghost in the "Foreign" Section of DeKalb in 1917
From the May 17, 2017, MidWeek (DeKalb County, Illinois) "Looking Back."
1917, 100 Years Ago.
"The police department was called on this morning to take care of a dog in the foreign section of the city. The officer giving attention to the call found that the inhabitant believed his house to be haunted as each night at the stipulated time, some person or animal would come to the house, and create a disturbance.
"The foreigner stood it as long as he could and last night remained up for the night armed with a shotgun. About 9:30 a dog put in an appearance and the shotgun soon put an end to the ghost. However, the foreigner still believes in ghost and proposes to move at once."
A story better suited for around October 31. A "Foreign" section of DeKalb?
