The classes used the well known mannequin victim,
Resusci-Annie, to practice. Typical of most models, this
Resusci-Annie was only a torso.
As instructed, one of my classmates
gently shook the doll and asked "Are you all
right?" He then put his ear over the
mannequins mouth to listen for breathing.
Suddenly he exclaimed, "She said
she cant feel her legs!"

WOLF HUNT NEAR JASPER.
The wolf hunt which took place west of
Jasper Saturday was a great success and furnished lots of
sport for a great army of hunters. The crowd gathered at
the Lynnland school house. It numbered about 100 and
consisted of horsemen, footmen and dogs. The dogs soon
struck the trail of a wolf and then the fun began. It is
thought that there were five different wolves scared up
during the day. Only one of the varmints was caught,
however. It was started near the stone house west of
Frank Gulicks. It ran east to Pottorffs
place, thence south to Hilliess, past the Dixie
school house, across the Frick farm to near the Rose Bank
school house where it was captured. The dog which took
his wolfship in belonged to the Garner boys. Only a few
of the hunters were fortunate enough to get a glimpse of
In view of the success of the hunt
another chase is being planned.

They say the census is
pretty much completed. I was one a the lucky
ones. Our family only had ta fill out the
"short" census form. I didnt
have to list my bathin habits or
whether I walked to work or took my lunch.
Im sure someone has
good reason for askin all those
seemingly whacko questions on the long census
forms. Im just not sure I woulda
thought they were good enough ta warrant an
answer. Id be interested ta know how
often folks trim their toenails.
I havent heard any
clarification, but Id have ta guess all
forms will at least count heads, even if they
dont go into the detail requested.
There are some good reasons
to get an accurate count, maybe they should
just count legs and divide by two.
This is some fact, but

You can thicken soup by
adding a tablespoon or so of instant mashed
potatoes. Yummy and so easy.
"Did you know that
in addition to being better for your baby
nutritionally, mothers milk is an excellent
bargain -- FREE? Nursing can save you up to $40
per week in your babys first year. Even if
you purchased an array of supplies meant to make
breastfeeding more convenient -- pumps, storage
containers, shawls -- youd still save
upward of $1,500 that year. Wow!" -- A
Reader, via e-mail
Heres a really
great, cheap rinse for brunettes: cooled black
coffee. Make a pot in the morning, and let it sit
until its cold. Then, after washing your
hair, just rinse it with the coffee and let drip.
Give it a quick shot of water, then pat dry.
"I loved the
convenience of frozen pancakes, but wished there
was more variety in flavors. So I decided to make
my own. I make my pancakes with all the fruits
and nuts added in, then freeze them on a flat
sheet. When frozen, they can be stacked and
bagged. I take what I want out and microwave it
for instant made-to-order pancakes!" -- T.Y.
"To make a pen
easier to grasp for arthritic hands, make two
Xs with a sharp knife on either side of a
rubber ball (like a racquetball). Push a pen
through. This is what we do for my grandmother,
who loves to write, but whose hands get tired
trying to hold a pen steady." -- O.D. in
To store larger bags of
pet food, purchase an appropriately sized garbage
can with a tightfitting lid. Old plastic cups
make great scoops, too.
