Near the Post office, a pocket book containing $180.00, one meal ticket and two tickets for the Meyers Novelty Entertainers who will appear here Friday Jan. 10. The finder may keep pocket book and meal ticket, but kindly return the two show tickets as I cannot afford to miss it.
Turtle Mountain Star, 1/2/1913
This is clearly an advertisement masquerading as a classified ad. Still nothing to sneeze at today, $180 in 1913 dollars is the equivalent of several thousand dollars today.
