A minister parked his car in a no-parking zone in a large city because he was short of time and couldnt find a space with a meter. Then he put a note under the windshield wiper that read:
"I have circled the block 10 times. If I dont park here, Ill miss my appointment. FORGIVE US OUR TRESPASSES."
When he returned, he found a citation from a police officer along with this note.
"Ive circled this block for 10 years. If I dont give you a ticket, Ill lose my job.Lead Us Not Into Temptation."

SPECIAL TELEPHONE LINE.
To Connect the School Buildings of the City.
Will Probably Be Independent of the Regular Lines,With Central at Supt. Holidays Office.
It is highly probable that the public school teachers of Carthage will soon enjoy the up-to-date feature of a telephone, and that the various school buildings of the city will ere long be connected by a special independent telephone line to be ordered in by the board of education. This is to facilitate the work of the superintendent as the head of the organized system of city schools, making it convenient for him to receive prompt reports and to publish instructions to, or call meetings of the teachers at a moments notice, whereas about the best method at present is to take pupils from the school rooms and send them on errands. And, too, in emergencies where advice might be sought by teachers, the telephone would prove a ready convenience.
The matter has been placed before the school board, and at the last meeting the committee on buildings and grounds, composed of Messrs. Logan, Whitney and Moore, was instructed to investigate the desirability as well as the probable cost of the system. It is the intention for the system to be an independent line, connecting only the ward school building with the High school, the central office being located in the office of Supt. Holiday. The report of the committee is to be submitted at the next meeting of the board of education.
