A lecture about English
A linguistics professor was lecturing to his English class one day. "In English," he said, "A double negative forms a positive. In some languages, though, such as Russian, a double negative is still a negative. However, there is no language wherein a double positive can form a negative."
A voice from the back of the room piped up, "Yeah, right."
- Cutler Websters Law: There are two sides to every argument, unless a person is personally involved, in which case there is only one.
- The solving of a problem lies in finding the solvers.
To Advertise Carthage.
W.T. Williams, agent for the Frisco Line Magazine, is in the city with a proposition that the Commercial Club Directors will consider tonight at a special meeting to be held at 8 o clock in Howard Grays office.
Mr. Williams proposes to print a two-page article descriptive of Carthage each month in the Frisco Line Magazine and circulate 5,000 copies for $100 a year. The articles are to be contributed by Carthage people. Mr. Williams leaves the city in morning, hence the special meeting of the directors tonight.
Neosho, Monett, and Eureka Springs have already gone into the scheme, and the articles are quite attractively illustrated.
President J.J. Wells interviewed a member of the business men on the proposition today and is of the opinion that the scheme will be readily accepted provided no additional cost shall be added.
