New straw hats at Mullen & Bluett, Broadway and 6th Street. Straw hats are “jaunty, clever, correct.” But we knew that, right?


July 10, 1913: Sex “hygiene” will be taught in the Chicago high schools after a vote by the Board of Education. Chicago becomes the first city in the nation to teach the subject, The Times says.

The skeleton of a man about 35 years old is found across from 1203 E. 8th Street by a workers from the Southern California Gas Co.

The remains were buried at a depth of about three feet in what was once a private lot but taken over by the city for the street, The Times said.
