Theres nothing I like better than the sound of a banjo, unless of course its the sound of a chicken caught in a vacuum cleaner.
What do you say to a banjo player in a three-piece suit?
"Will the defendant please rise?"
Three retirees, each with a hearing loss, were taking a walk one fine March day.
One remarked to the other, "Windy, aint it?"
"No," the second man replied, "Its Thursday."
And the third man chimed in, "So am I. Lets have a coke."
PROBABLY STOLEN AT GALENA.
Mrs. Porter, who claims to be the wife of T.J. Porter, the man who made his advent into Carthage with a sack of brand new shoes and who was sent to jail for peddling without a license, came to Carthage last night. She told the officers that she had given the shoes to Porter, having received them from a Galena merchant, Mike Clary, in payment for wages due her. A telephone message was received this afternoon by Marshal Bruffett from Clary saying that if the shoes came from his store they had been stolen and that he would come to Carthage this evening or tomorrow.
While Porter was in confinement here pending his trial, Peter Rothers was put into the city calaboose with him in order to endeavor to find out something more concerning where the shoes came from. Today Porter had Rother arrested on a charge of stealing his gold spectacles and now Rothers is locked up awaiting his trial.
