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. 6:

In 1910: An ad for John D. Losekamp, “Twenty-seven Years the Famous Outfitter,” offered emery-band shirts for $1.25 to $3; “heavy pelt-lined canvas and corduroy coats with plain and fur collars” for $6 and up; Stetsons for $6; and shoes for $5.

In 1935: “A special investigating committee reported to Major C.J. Williams and the city council Tuesday night that there is a decided public sentiment in favor of an underpass connecting the Billings north and south sides and an equally one-sided sentiment against the construction of an overpass.”

In 1988: “The parents of Cliff and Linda Bernhardt say they'll never stop hoping their children's killer will be caught,” even though today marked 15 years since the slayings in Billings.
