July 14 in San Antonio history...

1904
City Marshal Irvin ruled all San Antonio dogs, licensed or not, must wear muzzles out of doors due to an upsurge of hydrophobia.

1906
However it may be in northern cities, the price of ice in San Antonio does not go up with the mercury in the thermometer. Local families pay 35 cents per 100 pounds and are not complaining.

1954
Two days of temperatures above 100 degrees spurred San Antonians to use air conditioners resulting in consecutive new high records in the output of electricity by the City Public Service Board.
