Transpired in the City and County since our last Issue.
TROUBLE IS ENDED.
President Geo. M. Myers of the Gas Company.
George M. Myers, president of the
Carthage Lighting Company is down from Kansas City, today
looking after the affairs of the company. Mr. Myers and
Supt. Enright dined at the Harrington today and while
there met Mayor Harrington. The conversation naturally
drifted toward the lighting question. "I
suppose," said Mayor Harrington, "that the
injunction proceedings brought by your company against
the city will be finally disposed of tomorrow at Kansas
City." "Why," returned Mr. Myers
"that has all been settled." "I had not
heard of that," said Mr. Harrington. "Oh
yes," said Mr. Myers, "before leaving Kansas
City I instructed our attorneys that they were to dismiss
the injunction proceedings. You can go ahead with your
plant without further trouble."

The fact that I got a
notice over a month ago that my drivers
license expired yesterday was a welcomed
reminder. I had every opportunity to plan in
advance the gatherin of multiple
documents now required to obtain the
privilege to drive.
I had the opportunity, but
apparently didnt have the ability. The
rush to get all my paperwork in order before
I went down to the license bureau yesterday
put a strain on my schedule. Proudly I walked
into the bureau at mid-day. Plenty of time
for a leisurely application process. In the
midst of what appeared to be a major remodel,
I was informed that the bureau was closed,
but would be open first thing this
mornin. I probly popped off some
unwelcome remark I will likely regret when I
sheepishly return to retrieve my license
This is some fact, but

HERES A TIP
address labels with you in case you need to fill
out forms or for when you need to leave an item
for repair. If its possible, you can put a
sticker on the item. That way, it will not be
misplaced so easily." -- R.I. in Alabama
Be sure to check your
pets feet this time of year. Pads can crack
from cold weather, and they can get rashes from
salt exposure. Treat Fluffy to a canine or feline
pedicure. Wipe feet with a moist washcloth to
clean, then rub in some petroleum jelly.
"I have a mesh bag
that I use for my toiletries at the gym.
Its easy to carry the bag to the showers
and hang it on the showerhead. Any water drips
off by the time Im done getting ready, and
I can hang it right back up in my locker."
-- C.C. in Oregon
To keep the plastic wrap
on a covered dish when transporting it, use a
wide rubber band stretched out around the
dishs mouth and over the plastic. The big
rubber bands that come on broccoli are good. If
you need a bigger band, cut two and tie them
"My children both
take piano lessons. Periodically, when they
practice, we will record a session. When they are
feeling discouraged, we can listen to earlier
sessions to see how much progress theyve
made. As a bonus, since weve been doing
this for several years, its very sweet to
hear their voices introducing themselves and the
bit that they are practicing." -- M. in
If you have a cast on an
arm or a leg, heres a great piece of
advice: Cut off a leg portion of a pair of nylon
stockings (pantyhose) and put it over the cast.
Clothing will slip right over the nylon, and you
can pull it off and save it for next time.
