Chrysanthemum Show Disrespect

For shame, Queen City Leader! Mock ye not the ladies of the Skidmore Improvement Association and their chrysanthemums!┬áThank goodness the Skidmore ladies could show that editor what’s what, and good for the Skidmore Standard editor for setting him straight in the November 23, 1900 edition, page 4:

Over at Skidmore the ladies are arranging what is termed a ‘Mum Show.’ We predict the worst kind of failure in advance for the ladies are not noted for their ‘mum’ propensities. – Queen City Leader.

Not so fast there neighbor, you publish an excellent paper, but as a prophet you are a rank failure. If you had known that the Skidmore ladies never fail in anything they attempt, you would have kept as mum as a clam about their ‘Mum Show.’
