From the pages of the Crescent City American, March 1931.
Wednesday morning saw the laying of the cornerstone of the new building being erected by J.L. Musick at the corner of Third and H streets. The new building will house Mr. Musick’s grocery and hardware stock.
Mr. Musick is quite original and chose a unique method in which to honor the laying of the stone. Mr. Musick secured a fruit jar in which he placed a copy of each of the local papers containing articles about the building, receipts for dues paid to each of his fraternal and civic organizations and his membership badge to Kiwanis.
He has also written a prophecy as to the future of the city and to various events that will have taken place throughout the nation by the time the prophecy is taken out and again read.
