ERNEST GAMBLE COMING AGAIN.
With His Own Company,
Will be in
Carthage December 20.
Aaron Myers today closed a contract on
his own account for the Ernest Gamble Concert company to
appear at the Grand opera house December 20. It has not
yet been determined under whose auspices the company will
appear. The Choral society, Y.M.C.A. or Westminster
church will probably take charge of the event.
Ernest Gamble himself appeared as a
soloist last year at the Methodist church in Carthage,
and created a wonderfully favorable impression. This year
he is traveling with a company.

This one friend a mine was
familiar with the part of the country I grew
up in and mentioned on occasion that his dad
had a friend he visited from there.
Come ta find out, the
friend of the dad coached in the high school
I attended. I not only learned a little
football, basketball, and track from this
fella, I also worked for him doin odd
jobs durin a summer. On top a that,
this friends mother, Mrs. Jones, was my
first grade teacher.
Now Im guessin
both myself and the coach are wonderin
what the conversations are in the
friends family. As far as I can
remember we dont have any dark secrets
ta worry about. Now the guy that replaced
this coach my senior year, thats a
whole different story.
This is some fact, but

bracelet. Put it around your wrist, lay your arm
on your lap or a table, and tape one end down
with clear packing tape. Hold the other loose
side and fasten. Its much easier when you
dont have someone to hold it."

without worrying about the dye transferring to
your glasses and coloring them." -- R.U. in

"I keep my threaded
bobbins in a clean prescription pill bottle with
the label removed. I cut a small stick to fit,
and I turn the bottle upside down and grab the
stick to keep the bobbins in line. I can glance
quickly and get the one I want, while they stay
nice and straight in the bottle." -- D.L. in
