Today -100: October 11, 1915: Of secret treaties, treating, and dry Sundays

Greece hears of a secret treaty between the Central Powers and Bulgaria in which the former promised the latter the parts of Macedonia which are currently part of Greece and Serbia. Germany denies that such a treaty exists. It does.

London bans treating. Now everyone has to buy their own booze.

Chicago has survived – somehow – its first “dry” Sunday.
