“California Thanksgiving” and other expansive developments (Original Boomerang for December 3, 1922)


Original Boomerang, December 3, 1922

In this issue of the original Boomerang, it’s an unseasonably warm early December, so much so that, as the Boomerang Man says, the lilac bush in the yard appears “swelled up” over the “aristocratic weather.” In other garden news, this year’s yield of cannas bulbs is also swell. They’ve been dug up and cleaned and stored in a “cool dry place”; the Boomerang Man hopes they’ll “behave themselves till the robins come again”! (Read all about cannas here.)

Meanwhile, it seems like things are coming up roses for Ruth and for Talbott and Eno printers. The latter is working on a job for the Henry-Emery Department store (find a photo of that establishment here)–13,000 Happy New Year cards–and the former has had an audition with the Midland Chautauqua Circuit and has received quite an impressive gift from “a young man in Philadelphia”–one Frank Tybesky, perhaps? For more about Frank and Ruth and about Ruth’s potential for getting a contract on the chautauqua circuit, see this post here.
