Take a look back to another era in the Toms River area's past, one century ago this week!
Let your mind wander as you consider life around August 26th, 1921, courtesy the New Jersey Courier weekly newspaper and Ocean County Library archives, and peppered with items of maritime interest (around a 15 minute read).

Monday of last week, John McCarthy of Lanoka brought to the Courier office a leather traveling bag that he had picked up along the road. Shortly after a Newark advertising agency phoned in a lost advertisement that hit the bag; they were told that there was no need of the advertisement, as the bag was in this office. Saturday the owner, Martin V. Dager of Newark, a public accountant, stopped and got his property. It was a gift from his son, Major Dager, while the latter was with the A.E.F.

The sheds that escaped the fire will be torn down and rebuilt. The company says it lost practically no business because of the fire, as its August business shows up well with previous months of the year, which is the biggest ever known.
What will traffic on our streets be like if they keep on building automobiles for years to come, and the same proportion of them come this way?
HEADLINES AND NEWS NOTES
REMEASUREMENT COST WANDA VICTORY IN SLOOP RACE
A protest at the measurement of the sloop Wanda, of Seaside Park, cost her the victory in her class in the races at Cedar Creek Point, conducted by the Bay Head Yacht Club, last Saturday, August 27. The remeasurement increased her rating from 24 to 28, and reduced her time allowance so that Sonoma, owned by J. C. Elverson of Toms River, sailing under teh Seaside Park Yacht Club flag, was the winner. The original figures on Saturday for this race were as follows, corrected time given:
Wanda, Pennock, SPYC - 1:23:59
Sonoma, Elverson, SPYC - 1:24:59
Viking, Schofield, IHYC - 1:31:57
Ardo, Walling, SPYC - 1:32:07
Lotus, Truitt, IHYC - 1:33:34
Amazon, C.B. Miller, BHYC - 1:38:03
Portia, K. Barnaby, BHYC - 1:43:15
Remeasurement increased the sailing length of Wanda enough to put her second, and Sonoma first. The remeasurement also reduced the length of Viking and increased that of Sonoma, but not enough to change their positions.
Scat II Again Wins Catboat Race
Edwin J. Schoettle's boats at Island Heights seem to have the winning habit. His Scat II again won the catboat race at Cedar Creek Point, and his sneakbox Mull came in the winner in that class. There were nine yachts in the catboat race, the corrected time being:
Scat II, Schoettle, IHYC - 1:31:36
Mouser, Atkin, SPYC - 1:32:30
Dorothy, Larkin, SPYC - 1:32:48
Romp, Wheelock, SPYC - 1:35:15
Virginia, Warrington, IHYC - 1:35:56
Peerless II, Ill, IHYC - 1:36:24
Dryad, Bailey, BHYC - 1:40:05
Scat I, Schoettle, IHYC - 1:43:59
Zulietta, Haddon, IHYC - 1:44:04
There was an east wind in these races, an easy full sail breeze, that died out and came up again. Though the races were in the lower bay, there was a smooth sea.
Only Five Boxes Raced
Only five sneakboxes entered the races on Saturday at Cedar Creek Point, and Capt. Ill again put the Mull over the line the winner, the corrected time being as follows:
Mull, Ill, IHYC - 1:39:48
Ripple, Hance, BHYC - 1:40:48
Allure, Kean, LYC - 1:44:12
Me Too, Bailey, BHYC - 1:44:42
Wishbone, Dyke, LYC - 1:46:38
Races Saturday and Labor Day
The Barnegat Yacht Racing Association has two more races for this summer. On Saturday (tomorrow) at Island Heights there will be point races for ladies in sneakbox class at 10:30 a.m., and for sloops at the same hour; at 1:30 p.m., point races for men in sneakbox class, closing the point races for the summer in these three classes; at the same hour, point race for catboats.
Labor day, 1:30 p.m., at Seaside Park, the race for the Middleton cup will be the last point race for the season in the catboat class. Bay Head club will have open races Monday for both men and women in sneakbox class.
Picking Point Race Winners
Everybody in the racing game is now picking point race winners for the summer's championship. In the men's sneakbox class, E.J. Schoettle's Mull, sailed by young Ill, has no competitors, and cannot be touched in the one remaining race. In the sloop class, Wanda, Sonoma and Viking are all where they might win the championship by winning the race tomorrow. There being two more catboat races, Scat II, with 160 points, Zulietta, with 110, and Virginia, with 98, might either win the championship if lucky enough to win two races straight. Scat II is probably the winner, should she get either of these two races. All these boats belong to the Island Heights club.
Vanitie, Miss Ill, 230 points, and Frog, Miss Hall, 220 points, are the two leaders in the girls sneakbox races, and one of them will be the winner of the championship tomorrow. The summer has had the finest racing in many years, and the most interest, too.
ANOTHER DIRIGIBLE, BOUND FOR LAKEHURST, IS BURNED
Dirigibles bound for the big hangar at the Naval Air Station, Lakehurst, seem to be bad insurance risks just now, as following the tragedy of the ZR-2 at Hull, England, last week, dirigible D-6, was destroyed by fire on Wednesday, August 31, when the naval air station at Rockaway Point, Long Island, was destroyed. This was the dirigible that was due in Lakehurst on Monday of last week, and with which the air station sailors were to practice, so as to know how to dock the ZR-2 when she reached there from England. D-6 was 198 feet long, carried a crew of four, and had a speed of 60 miles an hour. She was used as a coast patrol, and is probably the same craft that had often been seen on the coast, during the war. The craft was of the non-rigid type. Blimp H-1 and kite balloon A-P were also burnt up, in the fire, which started from gasoline.
TYPHOID EPIDEMIC SERIOUS IN NEW EGYPT SECTION
The typhoid epidemic which centers at Jacobstown, and laps over into Ocean county in New Egypt, is very serious. Mrs. George C. Reynolds, wife of the New Egypt Methodist pastor, died on Monday; Senator and Mrs. George L. Shinn and many others are seriously ill. The state health department is in charge and has sent many nurses there to instruct people how to nurse the sick, and neighbors who can spare the time are giving their services to care for the sick, who must otherwise die, if left without care.
TOTAL CRANBERRY YIELD LESS THAN LAST YEAR'S
The general agreement of three or four sources of figures as presented at the meeting of the American Cranberry Growers' Association, held at Toms River, on Saturday last, August 27, was that the total cranberry crop of the country would be a little less than that of last year. It is figured with a small shortage of cranberries, and an almost entire absence of fruit for canning this summer, the big shortage in apples will give the cranberry grower a chance to dispose of his berries at a fair price this winter.
The New Jersey crop, according to the average figures presented will be about 175,000 bushels; Wisconsin is looked to supply 23,000 barrels, and Massachusetts 230,000; Long Island will have about 5000 barrels. H. B. Scammell of Toms River, secretary of the association, from figures sent by members, estimated 168,000 barrels for New Jersey...
The new half barrel box was on exhibition. Railroads are allowing a lesser rate on berries shipped in this box. It is materially different from the old time 28 quart crate of the Jersey cranberry grower, with its double compartment and thin slats of Jersey pine. This box is built of at least half inch boards, and is re-enforced at the corners, the corner cleats making it easy to handle the box. These boxes store more berries in a car than can be done in barrels. Sample boxes made at Double Trouble, were exhibited.
Most of the visitors brought their lunches, and sat in the boathouse, or on the banks of the river nearby to eat dinner...
BERRY PICKER SHORTAGE
Around New Egypt, growers are advertising for cranberry pickers.
ISLAND HEIGHTS TO FIGHT IF P.R.R. ABANDONS BRIDGE
Island Heights people, property owners and renters, summer folks and all year folks, are organizing to fight any attempt on the part of the P.R.R. To abandon the railroad bridge or train service via the bridge to Island Heights. A.E. Freeman states he would carry the matter to the highest courts and has many offers of aid.
NO MOTION PICTURE STUDIO AT PINE BEACH AFTER ALL
As told in the Courier's Beachwood letter last week, the story of a motion picture studio at the Burnett place, Pine Beach, when traced down, seems to have been founded on the motion picture camera brought to Beachwood by Wm. Mill Butler, to take Beachwood pictures. The Courier has a letter from Clyde Phillips, the theatrical man, who is the present owner of the Burnett place, and who says he has not sold and has no intention of selling his property, but intends to have a fruit and berry farm there. The point, he writes, belongs to Mr. and Mrs. Al Nicholas of Brooklyn, who will shortly erect a year-round home there, beside three bungalows. [The Burnett place referred to here is the still-standing Buhler mansion now surrounded by mid-20th century ranch-style homes on what was once a large property]
WILL TAKE ANOTHER BITE FOR THE MANASQUAN CANAL
The state department of Commerce and Navigation is advertising for bids for another bite at the Manasquan canal. The canal is started from the Barnegat Bay end, and is now almost to where route number 4 of the state highway system will intersect it. Bids will be received October 4, at the statehouse in Trenton, and $50,000 is available.
OPEN EGG PACKING HOUSE AT TOMS RIVER THIS WEEK
Preliminary arrangements for opening the egg packing, grading and shipping house at Toms River for the New Jersey Poultry Producers Association, Co-operative, Inc. have been completed. The receiving of eggs will follow soon. It had been expected to have the shipping plant ready by September 1, but the losing in transit from Ohio to Toms River of a carload of shipping crates delayed the opening...
A demonstration will be given at the farm of Wm. P. Flint, Clifton avenue, Toms River, showing how to inoculate pullets for the control of chicken pox, at 9 a.m. standard time, Saturday morning, Sept. 3. Mr. Flint's farm is near the farm of George Newman and George Hitt.
NEW FIRE ENGINE SAVED SEVERAL TUCKERTON HOUSES
A new fire engine, which is able to pump direct, by putting its suction hose in Tuckerton creek, and sending a heavy stream against the fire, saved several other bungalows from burning on August 25, when the John P. Crozer boathouse and the Anderson bungalow were burnt. The fire presumably started from a gasoline explosion, which blew Capt. Smith, who sails the Crozer boats, from the boathouse into the creek. Crozer lost one of his handsome yachts, the Lady Betty; the Rainbow, belonging to Mr. Latta of Burlington, also was lost. Bungalows belonging to George W. Jones, H.E. Markland and A.J. Durand were saved by the hardest kind of fire-fighting.
DOUBLE HEADER WITH CHIEF BENDER'S SEMINOLES MONDAY
Toms River is promised some big baseball on Monday, when a double header will be played with Big Chief Bender's Seminoles, morning and afternoon. Chief Bender is one of the classic heroes of the baseball diamond, and was one of the pitchers who laid the foundation for Connie Mack's great machine of world champions. Being a holiday, the Seminoles will probably be given a warm reception.
CUBANS 5, TOMS RIVER 3
Thursday afternoon the Cuban Stars took a second game from Toms River; score 5 to 3.
Edward B. Irons of Toms River and Miss Mabel Clayton, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ulysses Clayton of Lakewood, were married August 14, and made their honeymoon trip to Washington, D.C. The groom is employed as trainman on the C.R.R.
WOMAN CLAIMS SHE WAS HELD UP AND ROBBED IN BERKELEY
Mrs. Edna Worth, wife of Everett Worth of Seaside Park, claims that she was held up by a strange man and robbed of $132 in cash [about $2,000 in 2021 dollars] in the Bushwick section of Berkeley township on August 21. The money she had withdrawn from the First National bank but a short time before. The man is described by her as being not over 20 years old, wearing khaki trousers and shirt, dark coat, checkered cap and being light complected.
Mrs. Worth came over on the ten o'clock train from the beach Wednesday morning and drew the sum from the bank. She said she was going back on the two train, and was going to the station, via the Cranberry Bog road, when this man jumped from the bushes, seized her by the throat, choked her till she could resist no longer, and ran off with her money. Sheriff Chafey and a posse searched the entire neighborhood that afternoon and sent out a description in all directions, but have not got the man.
JOLLY PICNIC DREW FARMERS FROM ALL PARTS OF COUNTY
All parts of the county were represented by farmers and their families at the farmers picnic held in Beachwood on Wednesday, August 30. There were some fine exhibits of fruits, flowers, and vegetables, in spit of its being a poor year. The boys and girls were well represented with their exhibits of garden stuff, fruits, sewing and by their wireless outfit.
AUTO ACCIDENTS ENOUGH
There seemed to be plenty of automobile accidents for the week end just past. At Lanoka, just north of Cedar Creek bridge, a car overturned several times, spinning like a ball. A car took the rail off the little bridge just this side of Lakehurst. Another went through the railing on the bay meadows just east of the bay bridge to Seaside Heights. A heavy car at high speed on the Mantoloking draw nearly wrecked that draw Saturday, after it had just been rebuilt.
FISH AND GAME
A man will go into the wilds and fish a brook for trout all day, day after day, for two or three fish a day, and think he has sport. Let the same angler come to salt water, and he want sto fill the boat in one day, and is likely to be a little peeved, if he gets no more of weakfish than he would expect to get of trout. That is the trouble of having a reputation—the salt water has a reputation for plenty of fish, and when it fails to live up to that reputation, folks are displeased.
Night fishing in surf and in the bay continues to be the best fishing there is in bay or ocean.
Big catches are looked forward to in September. The big drum are due on their way south for the surf fishing contingent to try for; the bigger weakfish school for their migration south; bigger striped bass begin to come in the inlets; and so the anglers look to September to fill out a rather erratic season of fishing.
Word came over from the beach that bluefish were in the surf at Joe Reed's, south of Seaside Park, last Thursday and Friday in great schools, and were caught in every conceivable way.
The yacht Belle G., with Mrs. Leon Siefert at the wheel, took a party of friends down the bay on a crabbing trip, last Saturday. The party caught 541 crabs.
Delightful days and nights at the Island.
One of the largest and most enthusiastic meetings ever held on the Island took place at the Money Island yacht club on August 28, under the auspices of the Money Island Improvement Association... Many public improvements were discussed and the welfare committee was directed to take up the matter of securing the same.
The Atlantic City Electric Company has offered to run a line to Tuckerton borough and supply this place with current, if our people will take enough stock to supply the capital needed for the extension. The company already supplies current for the huge radio plant four miles down shore. The Public Utilities Board has approved the extension to Tuckerton.
The activities of the yacht club prove that organization is a flourishing one, at least it seems to have a corps of wide-awake members. Public dancing has been held every Friday and Saturday evening since the erection of the new dance floor.
The yacht races and water sports, held annually, are set for Labor day as usual.
Labor day will be a big day here with games and other amusements on land and water, also boat races for both sail and motorboats. In the morning there will be races for catboats and sloops... There will be a masquerade ball on Labor day evening at the yacht club.
The recent Summer Frolic at the yacht club cleared $350. The advertisements in the program paid for the printing and made $200 of this amount.
I wish to correct a mistake I made in last week's paper. Milton Johnson Jr. received the first prize as the fattest baby at Seaside Heights, not the second, as reported.
The annual rummage sale by the ladies of the M.E. Church will be held in the store next to the postoffice on Thursday, Sept. 8.
The first prize in the boys' yacht race last Saturday went to Bay Head. Bob and Seth Hetherington of Island Heights carrying off 2d, and 3d prizes. Another race will be held on Friday.
Foulks Brothers opened their new motion picture theatre at New Egypt last Saturday, August 27. It has been named "The Isis," is built of brick, and is a fine theatre for a town of that size to have.
New Egypt school board must this year pay the Borough of Pemberton $75 for each high school pupil.
The kite balloon that hangs over the Naval Air Station at Lakehurst can be seen in Whitings.
There is a great need of small boats at our bay but no one seems inclined to have them. Of course after awhile some one from way back in the woods or from West Jersey farms will come down, take in the situation and get right on the job, and then we will hear that old cry of outsiders coming here and taking the lead in such things. Why not? We won't do anything ourselves.
J.H. Perrine is putting an addition to his boat shop for installing his sawing department which he removed to make room for a planer.
One more week end and the big end of the summer will be over. Beach Haven expects to have a good hotel patronage during much of September however, for the hay fever sufferers come to find relief and the fishermen come for the fall fishing.
One of the finest catches of bluefish on record in recent years was made by a party from Avon, N.J. Who were out one day last week with Capt. John Cranmer, and brought back 40 big blues, ranging in weight from three to eight pounds.
The Engleside hotel has been well filled with guests this month, and will have a large crowd over the Labor day week end.
The Beck Company has been organized by Charles Beck to take over the lands formerly belonging to the Beach Haven Realty Company, which he recently bought. Mr. Beck is a hustler at business, and it is generally expected that he will put his ability back of the sale of these lots and development of the resort.
Constable Sprague raided a cottage here on Saturday night, finding evidences that are claimed will substantiate a charge of disorderly house [a charge of causing a nuisance to the neighborhood; often, a brothel].
The carnival and dance held on Friday and Saturday evenings was a fine success and the firemen netted a neat sum toward the payment on the new fire truck which was delivered in time to be on exhibition for the purpose of showing the people what their money was to be invested in.
Mr. Turner, proprietor of the Manhassett hotel gave the use of the ballroom and hotel orchestra and booths were built along the boardwalk where soft drinks, cakes and hot dogs were on sale and dolls and trinkets were handed out to the lucky winners.
Tests and demonstrations on the [fire] truck have been made daily and it has proven very satisfactory in every way.
The fire company held a business meeting on Monday evening and the machine was accepted. As there is still a considerable amount of money to be paid before the debt on the apparatus is cleared it was thought a good plan to hold another fair and dance at the Manhassett on Saturday evening next, Sept. 3.
Mrs. Edward Mangold has been spending the past week with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Emory of Brooklyn, to help in the preparations and be present at the wedding on August 30 of her sister, Miss Bessie Emery, who is popular here with the young folks and teacher of the Seaside Heights public school. The groom is equally well known and is an employee of that borough.
James Wolcott Newman, the fish pound owner, whose pounds lie below this place, at his death left a will that has been probated in Freehold, leaving his estate to his widow, Ida E. Newman, who is made executrix and guardian of their son, Karl P. Newman, who inherits at her death.
It is reported that the Mayo interests are planning a campaign to sell their lot holdings here, consisting chiefly of valuable and finely located lots between the Atlantic boulevard and the river. It is hoped that these lots will get in the hands of people who will build homes.
The figures from the Beachwood fair are made public as follows: Total receipts, $2170.17; cash donations, $137; total, $2307.17. Expenses, $331.30; net receipts, $1975.87. The fire apparatus cost $1645.99 [$25,103 in 2021 dollars], leaving a balance of $329.88. It is proposed by O. Fred Rost, president of the Property Owners' Association, that this balance, with the fire apparatus fund previously raised by the association, be used to buy additional apparatus to be stationed at Beachwood Heights [Beachwood Heights was the short-lived name for the part of town to the south of the crisscrossing railroad lines of the Pennsylvania and Central Jersey]
The week end yacht race was won by Capt. Wemple of the red sail; second, Mayor Senior, of the purple sail. The Polyhue yacht club [predates Beachwood Yacht Club, named for the different-colored sails of sneakboxes races by members] has decided that hereafter its races will be on Saturday afternoons. The club has been making improvements at the yacht club house, screening in the porch, building a kitchen, etc., and this week end the ladies of the club served a luncheon.
Auto campers are quite common at Lanoka.
Postmaster S.R. Rogers has bought the Jeffrey store and will have it moved on his property in a few days.

The yacht club gave a country fair which was well attended. Hams, tongues, bacon, watermelons, watermelons, potatoes, tobacco, cigars, cigarettes, tomatoes, aluminum cooking utensils, Indian blankets, fancy baskets, cakes, candy, pies, Sweetie dolls were all on display and disposed of before the evening was over. People from Mill Creek and Money Island attended the fair. Commodore Reitheimer, Dr. Earle Rice, Roy Hutchinson, Carl Bordt, Henry Kurtz and others helped to make it a success. The usual Saturday evening dance followed.
The Berkeley township committee held a meeting in the yacht club on Thursday night to take measures to stop the proposed closing of Pine Beach station by the railroad. Judge Berry was engaged to act, representing Pine Beach and the township committee, whose solicitor, Harold Brinley, will also assist. The Public Utilities commission gave him a hearing on this matter on September 13 in Trenton at 11 a.m. Daylight saving.
The Lot Owners' Association, Mr. John Mergenthaler, president, holds a meeting on Thursday night in the yacht club to arouse all concerned by the proposed closing of the station to take action.
Mr. Thomas Sheeran was kind enough to present a diving board to Pine Beach. Some boys who never give a helping hand to benefit Pine Beach, tried to break the spring board by jumping up and down on it, but it remained for a crowd of boys from Money Island, who came over on Saturday afternoon, to finish its destruction. They bounced up and down on it until it broke in the middle and hung down over the water until removed.
Some of these fine days the speed maniacs who go through Pine Beach like a streak of lightning on Springfield avenue, will find means have been taken to get their license numbers to take steps to punish them and stop this dangerous practice. There have been several narrow escapes from running over children, several near collisions and the other night a dog was struck and its back broken. The poor beast was left to suffer several hours until it was put out of its misery.
The weakfish in Barnegat Bay have been biting unusually well during the past week. Phineas Potter and party have caught a great many averaging 5 pounds each. The largest catch of the week, was that of Samuel Stetler of East Stroudsburg, Pa., who caught one weighing over 10 pounds.
