NO DUCK HUNTING IN THE TOWN SQUARE! It must have been a slow day in town. The jolly jesters from the billiard parlor, struck by the hilarity of the moment, aim their pool cues at a duck instead of an ivory ball. The decoy floats peacefully on the temporary pond, as the bird dog wonders what all the fuss is about! The event drew the barber from J. A. Yocumís for a contemplative look. This Mifflin County Historical Society archive photo dates from 1900, from theewistown Gazette. A front page article from June 14, 1900 noted: Saturday morning the attention of a large number of people was drawn to a large card on a stick placed in one of the mud holes in the Diamond bearing the words: "NO SHOOTING DUCKS HERE." Below the sign a decoy duck was placed. During the day photographer Nolte took a picture of the "lake" around which a number of persons grouped themselves in the attitude of hunters and fisherman. It is a shame that the Diamond has been left in this condition so long. The problem was apparently caused by the trolley company, and the article goes on to condemn the situation, blaming the town council.
