At a high School in Montana a group of students
played a prank on the school. They let three goats loose
in the school building.
Before they let them go they painted
numbers on the sides of the goats: 1, 2, 4.
Local school administrators spent most
of the day looking for goat #3.
Sitting at a table in the clubhouse
after a game, Joe said to a fellow club member,

Wheelers Team Killed by a Train
Claytons Narrow Escape.
Mr. Wheeler and Joe Clayton were
engaged yesterday in putting in two new poles on the
Missouri Pacific right of way. The team was standing in
the road about a hundred feet from the track.
Mr. Wheeler was on the opposite side of
the railroad and Clayton was repairing a broken strap on
the harness with a bit of wire when a northbound gravel
train appeared in the distance. The horses began to act
nervous and the lineman grasped their bits. As the team
reached the crossing the engines whistle let out a
screech and the horses bolted.
They dashed frantically forward
directly toward the moving train with Clayton swinging to
their bits. He held on pluckily until within ten feet of
the train when something struck him on the head, he does
not know what it was, but he was hurled headlong and
quite severely bruised. He landed not more than six feet
from the track. The team continued its frantic flight and
dashed straight into the train, which was moving at a
The head of one of the animals was
sliced off as neatly as a knife could have done it and
the neck of the other horse was broken. Both, of course,
died instantly. The engineer stopped the train as quickly
as possible and backed up to the scene of the accident.
The trainmen were very much agitated as they thought that
Clayton had certainly gone under the wheels with the
team. His escape was a most fortunate one and he did not
realize its narrowness until afterward.
His efforts to turn the team were so
occupying his attention that had he not been knocked
loose he would have probably been killed as the horses
The team was a fine one of match
sorrels which Mr. Wheeler valued especially because he
had raised them from colts and they were not for sale at
any price. The harness was ruined and the tongue broken
out of the wagon.

There are a considerable
number of theories bout where the best
information comes from. With all the high
tech computers spewin information
round, some might think the internet
would be a top contender.
There are still those who
think that the radio is the most
interestin information around. All
those talk shows with folks callin in
from all over.
Many would still bring the
printed word in as the most reliable. There
is a feelin that if ya put it on paper,
its more likely ta be accurate.
Most folks these days
ignore the old fashioned news media,
talkin ta other folks. In fact, ya get
more real info if ya just stand around not
talkin at all. Down at the post office
for instance, or the Police Station, maybe
even at the coffee shop. Thats where
the real news is bein talked about.
This is some fact, but

For a better grip on
baby during bathtime, grab a pair of cotton
gloves from the nail-care section of the
drugstore. They are very lightweight, and can
double as a washcloth. They also dry quickly when
clipped to the shower curtain with a clothespin.
