A Well-Known Carthage Woman Passed Away.
Mrs. Mary Huffer died
about 3 oclock yesterday morning at the county poor
farm of cancer. She was well known here, having made
Carthage her home for years. She had been married three
times and is better known here as Mrs. Galloway - Mr. Ed
Galloway having been her second husband. After his death
she married Wm. Huffer, who was found dead under the
Missouri Pacific bridge across Center creek one morning a
couple of years ago. Mrs. Huffer at one time had
considerable property, but she has been a sufferer from
cancer for the past two years. She has been for the past
three months at the poor farm. For the last three days,
she was unconscious nearly all the time until the end.

"If you are facing
a dusty bookshelf and dont want to just
spread dust around, try this handy hint: Cover
your vacuum cleaner hose with a leg of pantyhose,
and vac the dust right off the shelves. You can
stir it up with a feather duster, or get right on
the books or shelf. The hose will let air and
dust through, but wont suck up any small
items on the shelf." -- R.F. in Pennsylvania
"I love to clip
coupons, which I take to the store in a reusable
plastic envelope. To remember to use the coupons,
when I get to the store, I take out my debit card
and put it in the envelope with the coupons. This

whip out those little money-savers!" -- Y.L.

lustrous. I do this once a week and get comments
on my hair all the time." -- D.E. in
If you have mineral

denture-cleaning tablet. Add a small amount of
water to the vase (enough to cover the deposits),
then drop in the tablet, breaking it up as
needed. Let it sit overnight and rinse well.
