Indy when the Cubs were last champs

http://indy.st/2ffCtsF

The last time the Chicago Cubs won the World Series was Oct. 14, 1908.The next day The Indianapolis Star reported the victory on Page 1. “Cubs Win Pennant Easily from Tigers,” the headline said. “Wherever they are talking about the world’s baseball championship tonight,” the story began, “they are cussing the wonderful Chicago Cubs.”Here are nine other things people were talking about that day, according to The Star. These are headlines only, except for the “Man Says He Was Robbed” and “Horse Stealing Disease” stories and the one about the man who fell over dead a moment after saying how well he felt and the one about the mugging of the too-trusting man from a small town. Those, due to their brevity, are reprinted in full.
