A Real Estate Trade.
Last evening a trade was effected by
which Saml Morrow purchased of Mrs. S. H. Lashorn
of Hamilton, O., her 114 acre farm 1 1/4 miles east of
Carthage. The farm has been occupied for years by W. S.
Shuler, a relative of Mrs. Lashorn, and is a fine piece
of bottom land. The consideration was $6,500. In exchange
Mrs. Lashorn takes Mr. Morrows Clinton street
residence property, it going in the deal at $3,500. The
actual possession of each property will be given next
June, when Mr. Morrow will remove to the farm and Mr.
Shuler comes to Carthage.

Ive always been a
little amazed at how a single bit of news can
effect different folks completely opposite
Talked to a guy the other
day and the fact that the weather has been
runnin pretty cool for this time a year
was brought up. This guy says yea, but I
always like it when it gets pretty hot
durin the summer.
Talked to another who was
not likin the warmer afternoons. Said
she couldnt wait until fall gets here.
Now Im sure that all
dont share these obviously wild swings
of opinion. There have ta be some moderates
out there who just want the weather to make
up its mind and not make any radical changes.
I imagine most just want some continuity and
routine in their lives. Course those
folks are probly livin in the
wrong part of the country.
This is some fact, but

HERES A TIP
Having a picnic? If you use a
plastic or vinyl tablecloth, you know that it can
develop wrinkles in storage. Never fear. A hair
dryer set on low can get those wrinkles out in
minutes. Hang the tablecloth over your shower
curtain for easy access.
"Recently, the tab
broke off of my pants. Trouble was, it was the
middle of the day. I used a paper clip as a
replacement, and it worked so well, I kept it on
there. Its still working!" -- D.E. in
"To make pounding
nails into wood easier, I keep a bar of soap
handy. I rake the nails though the soap before
putting them in. It makes a big difference --
especially a large project, like putting up a
fence" - F.J.
"I have long nails,
so I protect them with rubber gloves when I wash
dishes or clean. Well, it seems that I have to
protect my gloves from my nails, as I sometimes
puncture the end of the glove with my nails. I
have solved that via a tip from a friend who also
has long nails: Stuff a small cotton ball in the
end of the finger of each glove. Then, when I
stick in my fingers, the ends are cushioned by
the cotton. It works very well for me." --

Go Green Tip: Take a
shorter shower. To reduce water AND the
electricity used to heat that water, challenge
yourself to a five-minute shower. Its
easier than you think to reduce the amount of
time you spend bathing. Also, try setting a few
buckets in the shower to catch the water that
goes to waste while you are waiting for the hot
water to come out. You can use this water in the
kitchen (make sure the buckets are
spick-and-span) or in the garden.
