Looking Back 127 Years Ago, 1889: Congrats to DeKalb on New Shoe Factory

From the October 8, 2014, MidWeek (DeKalb County, Illinois) "Looking Back."

October 9, 1889:  DeKalb (Illinois) has secured the promise of a location in her limits of the A.G. Leonatf & Co. boot and shoe factory.  ...Sycamore feliciates her sister city upon the exhibition of enterprise and hopes that in time she may grow large enough to wear a pair of red-topped, copper-toed boots with a barb in each heel."

Not sure about this compliment.
