That man wanted me to go into the sausage business with him.

How does his proposition look to you?

Looks like a lot of bologna.

What’s capital and labor?

Well, suppose I loaned you two dollars, that’s capital. When I try to get it back, that’s labor.

Have you any pillow cases?

Yes, sir. What size?

I really don’t know, but I wear a size seven hat.

A Chronological Record of Events as they have Transpired in the City and County since our last Issue.


Passengers on the 7:40 a.m. train Sunday from the north did not reach here until noon. They had been delayed at Lamar by a wreck on the Missouri Pacific and Gulf or Frisco crossing. There the north bound Pacific train which leaves here about 3 a.m. had been run into by a Frisco freight, both attempting to make the crossing at once. An engine and tender were literally demolished and wrecked coaches were piled up in great profusion.

The north bound 9:50 train Sunday morning went only to Lamar, transferred its passengers to a train on the other side, and in turn took passengers from the delayed 7:40 and brought them here at noon. The division superintendent of the Missouri Pacific is said to have been badly hurt, there were no other injuries reported from the incident.

The Carthage Mandolin Club gave another popular dance last night at the armory hall. The event was well attended.

Hurry up and wait. Nothin’ more frustratin’ for most folks.

I grew up hearin’ Mom say Dad didn’t like ta stand in lines ‘cause of all his line standin’ durin’ WWII. I seriously dout he liked it much before he joined the Air Corp.

What’s really aggravatin’ is to stand in a long line just to find out you get to take a number, then wait some more till you’re called. I suppose seein’ those long lines in front of a theater must mean folks think it’s worth the wait.

Those who camp out on the sidewalk just to get tickets to some event have always been a curiousity, I’ve done some campin.’ but usually out in the woods.

The universal rule of havin’ to go to the end of the line if ya cut in is taken seriously by those campers I’d guess.

This is some fact, but mostly,
