A Chronological Record of Events as they have
Transpired in the City and County since our last Issue.
Sewers for Schools
The school board last night heard the
report of the committee on grounds and buildings, and
ordered various improvements. All buildings in the sewer
districts are to be given sewer connection, doing away
with unsightly out-buildings. The High School, Central,
Franklin and Benton will probably be in the new district.
Wall papering, painting and board
blacking are to be done at most of the buildings, and the
basements of the Benton and Irving ward buildings are to
be made into rainy day play rooms for the pupils.
Several fires have been narrowly
averted by a deficient heating system at the High School
building, and that is to be remedied.
Sam Wheeler was re-elected janitor of
the High School building.
The driving range at the
Municipal Golf Course is now open for business.
Carthage City Council during the meeting on June

The Missouri Humanities Council
will present the "Thats
Entertainment!" Chautauqua June 25 through
30, and invites participants to take a vacation
in the past with events scheduled throughout the
The events begin today at 2:00
p.m. in the Carthage Public Library, 6th and
Garrison, with a presentation by William Worley
portraying Walt Disney.
Notes from todays
presentation are as follows: "Walt Disney
learned his animating skills in Kansas City.
Mickey Mouse may have been born aboard a Santa Fe
train in 1928, but part of the inspiration for
him came from Walts lean days
at Laugh-A-Gram Studios in Kansas City. Mickey
evolved from a scamp in "Steamboat
Willie" to the disobedient, but ultimately
dutiful Sorcerers Apprentice
and finally to icon status at Disneyland and
Disney World. Learn about the 1930s Mickey Mouse
Clubs, about Walts identification with his
character [or vice versa], and much more."
This program is intended for
all ages and will include video of the first
sound Mickey cartoon.
Further information about the
"Thats Entertainment" Chautauqua
will be released in the Mornin Mail
throughout the week.
I grew up around machinery and folks
that always tinkered with it. Seems a motor or a
gear box wasnt much use unless you could
tear it apart ever now and then.
Probly the first
complicated mechanism I tore into personally was
the coaster brake on my bike.
Dont know that I ever did
xactly know how one a those things work. I
did get figured out how it had ta go back
together if ya wanted it to do its job.
Im sure there are plenty
a folks that could explain how a coaster brake
works, but not knowin keeps me from
thinkin I know all about machines. A
healthy attitude when workin on the mower.
This is some fact, but mostly,

"For you hockey fans, take
a clean puck and keep it in the freezer to break
up the ice you have in a bag or container."
-- S.H. in Ohio
Relieve the itch of a bug bite
by dabbing it with antiperspirant. The aluminum
salts will reduce the swelling, and help to
relieve the itch.
To slow spoilage of container
dairy items (sour cream, cottage cheese, cream
cheese), store upside-down in the fridge -- that
is to say, lid side down. It will keep those
items fresher longer.
"Cut the fat on pizza just
by using your napkin. When you get a slice of
pizza, double a napkin or paper towel and lightly
blot excess oil from the top of the pizza.
Dont press down too hard, or youll
come away with cheese, but this is a good way to
get that extra stuff off." -- T.R. in
"Birthday candles can be
held in place with Lifesaver candies. They are
the perfect size for your standard candles, and
kids really like them. Also, for adults, they
will catch any excess wax that drips. Especially
if you have a lot of candles on your cake, like
mine!" -- U.D. in Tennessee
Whenever I make a cake recipe
that calls for the pan to be lightly dusted with
flour, I use the dry cake ingredients instead.
The box mixes are great for this. Especially if
you are making a chocolate or dark cake, the
dusting doesnt stand out the way white
flour sometimes does.
