To mark The Billings Gazette's 125th anniversary, we look back at news on this date from earlier editions of The Gazette and the frontier publications that merged to form the newspaper.

On Nov. 18:

In 1910: "With the life of a man hanging in the balance and depending upon every second for being saved, a Northern Pacific freight train made a record run from Chestnut to Bozeman ... and the injured man was hurried to a hospital, where the hope of recovery was pronounced."

In 1935: "An urgent need for sewing machines for the WPA (Works Progress Administration) women's projects of this district was expressed. ... There are 140 women at work in the project headquarters in the old telephone building on North Twenty-seventh street."

In 1990: "The influx of foreign exchange student programs has District 2 high school officials concerned that the number of exchange students is getting out of hand and that the quality of students participating is no longer what it used to be."
