Prof. Robinson has received the formal
acceptance of Miss Giga B. Ritter, of Chicago, as teacher
of French and German in the college the coming year. In
response to Prof. Robinsons inquiry in regard to
Miss Ritter, President Warren, of Boston University,
says: "Miss Ritters father is so eminent an
educator that the city of Zurich, Switzerland, several
years ago conferred upon him an honor rarely
given-The freedom of the city. The Federal
government of Switzerland also lately honored him with a
commission to visit the United States and report upon
American technical schools. Prof. and Miss Ritter give a
weekly reception in their parlor for American students.
Miss Ritter has the best of European opportunities and
speaks English, French, and German with equal fluency.
Her teaching and influence are excellent."
Prof. Robinson learned of Miss Ritter
through a professor in the University of Chicago, who
recommended her very highly, and he feels that the work
in modern languages in the colleges will be advanced even
beyond its past good record.
The work in mathematics and chemistry
will be equally strong in the hands of Miss E.J. Park,
who has had her Masters degree in science.
The Western, a ladies college of
Oxford, Ohio, had just informed Pro. Rodinson that his
certificate will admit students of the Carthage school to
corresponding standing there.
Thus far eight colleges and
universities from east and west, have placed the colleges
here on their list of accredited schools.
On March 21st 2009 at
approximately 1832 hours The Carthage Police
Department was notified of an assault in progress
in the 1200 block of South Garrison. Officers
arrived on scene at 1834 hours and discovered the
victim who had been stabbed four times in the
back. He was able to identify the female suspect
who was also located on scene and detained. A 32
year old male suspect was located inside a
residence suffering from injuries to his head and
face. Both males were transported to McCune
Brooks Regional Hospital for treatment. The
victim was later transported to St. Johns
Hospital for further medical treatment. He
apparently suffered a punctured lung in the

transported to Freemen Hospital for treatment of

indicates that the suspects went to the residence
in reference to a theft or debt that they
believed someone from that residence was
responsible for. An altercation developed between
the two male subjects and the female suspect also
became involved in the dispute. A knife was
recovered in the vicinity.
Its always handy ta have
a few nails around. Ya never know when ya might
want ta hang a picture or fasten that porch rail.
I still prefer the old fashioned eight penny for
nailin to 2x4s and a couple of
finishin nails for trim work. Havin a
few sixteen penny spikes come in handy for those
heavier repairs or. Now Ive had ta add a
new dimension to my collection, a variety of
fasteners for my battery powered screw driver.
Havin a few tools and
gadgets around in case of emergency was just part
of my upbringin I suppose. Id have ta
guess that it comes from a heritage of rural
"root cellar" dependent ancestors.
Course such thinkin can lead to just
havin a lot of useless junk ya have ta trip
over. At least if ya got a few nails and a little
lumber, you can build a box ta keep it all in.
This is some fact, but mostly,

Go Green Tip:
Air-cleaning houseplants. Sound like science
fiction? Its not; use the following plants
in every room to naturally clean air of
pollutants: English ivy, golden pothos, spider
plant, peace lily, bamboo palm and ficus plant.
"To give your cat a
pill when all other efforts fail: Place pill in a
plastic baggie and crush very fine with a hammer.
I laced it into a hairball cat salve, spread thin
and thoroughly onto both paws, and theyll
always lick them clean. Its best to keep
the cat on a vinyl floor or outside until
theyre cleaned up." -- Mrs. K.N in
"To remove a bumper
sticker from a vehicle, try loosening it with a
little spray lubrication, like WD-40. Then work a
plastic spatula under the corners until you can
get as much of it up as you can. Use a hair dryer
to heat and loosen the sticker. When you have the
sticker off, use a plastic scrubbie and dish soap
to get leftover adhesive. Follow that with
rubbing alcohol. Dont use a razor blade, as
it will scratch up the paint." -- D.W. in
When traveling by car, I
bring a large, soft towel with me. I roll it
around the seat belt (the chest part) and secure
it using safety pins. I am then able to slide it
up to use as a pillow, and still keep my seatbelt
on safely. Because its attached to the
belt, it doesnt fall down unless I slide it
down when Im getting out of the car.
