Out of curiosity I did a little research. Montana in the early 20th century was a hotbed of political unrest.

As was much of rural America. Winn Parish had its own socialist newspaper...and we all know where "Every Man a King" Huey P hailed from.

Had a house that built in the 50s and had the old electrical screw in fuse panel. I was changing a ceiling light fixture and ended up pulling every dang fuse out, but still had power at the ceiling box. My electrician friend came over and found a penny had been placed behind a fuse holder. Apparently there was a window AC unit on the circuit that kept blowing fuses


My grandfather said that's what you are supposed to do.
"Keeps you from having to go down there so much"
