Hancock & Land Pool Hall

Owner: Hancock & Land


Billiard Parlor Changes Hands

Hancock & Land are the new proprietors of the Lusk Billiard Parlor, having purchased the business from R.E. Porter last week.  Mr. Hancock has been operating a barber shop in the same room for some time past and has put in up-to-date fixtures, added another chair and has generally improved the shop.  The new proprietors will run a first class place, carrying a full line of cigars, tobaccos and candies.  They are doing a good business now, their pool tables are busy all the time and the barbers are going steady.

Pool Hall Building Collapses Saturday

Saturday morning about 10:30 the building occupied by the Hancock & Land pool hall caved in with a crash. Practically without warning to the occupants the north wall fell in and the roof followed in short order. Just a moment before the crash the plaster fell from the ceiling and the few customers who happened to be in at the time made a dash for the door and barely escaped.
