Here are 5 news stories from around the world 100 years ago. What was happening in the world one hundred years ago? Hi this is Matt and here are 5 New York Times headlines from March 6th, 1913.Number 5 - So what was President Wilson's first day in the office like? Apparently, it was like 'Real Democracy at White House'. You could smoke cigars again - they were not allowed by the outgoing President Taft. The report also gave a glimpse into the rather casual process for anyone wanting to see the President. All you needed was a card signed by the then Secretary. And as long as you had the card, you could attend a general reception at 4 o'clock on the President's first day.Number 4 - Charles Preston lived in the same town for 90 years and was moving on. It's interesting to learn about his secret to long life - never used tobacco in any form and says he never tasted intoxicating liquor or used profane language. Most of us can agree on tobacco and liquor but not sure if scientist has found a link between long life and not using profane language. Number 3 - Do you take your chauffeur with you when driving, in case there's a puncture? While that may seem strange to you and impractical, that was common enough for one tire company to pitch you on the idea that their tires never puncture. It boldly claimed ' Overman Cushion Tires cannot blow out - cannot puncture - cannot skid.' Number 2 - Visitors who came to see President Wilson's inauguration were headed back to their hometowns and that was causing a major gridlock in Washington DC. While these days, headlines would cover airport delays on heavily traveled days, back then, they were talking about 'taxicabs carriages and trolley cars.'Number 1 - One of the fascinating aspects from that era involved stories covering local/small bombs in the US going off. In a yet another story, cops caught someone in the act of making a bomb. Joseph Diffendale had threatened his sister-in-law and told her he'd 'blow up the place with a bomb'. She reported the threat to the detectives who really did find him making a bomb in his apartment.
