Then Again...

Well, after that last post, I found this in an issue of the Kittson County Enterprise published in October 1903, which said:
The practice of tying cows along the streets of St. Vincent is a nuisance that the city authorities ought to have abated long ago. Our sidewalks are clean, and should be kept that way, without having them service as depositories for the filth of cows, between which pedestrians are obliged to tread their way during the day, and at night to make impressions in the plastic material by dainty footwear.
...that's not exactly putting your best face forward, having cows tied along the main street!
