was caught red-handed trying to steal a watch from an
exclusive jewelry store. "Listen," said the
shoplifter, "I know you dont want any trouble
either. What do you say I just buy the watch, and we
forget about this?"
The manager agreed and wrote up the
sales slip. The crook looked at the slip. "This is a
little more than I intended to spend. Can you show me
something less expensive?"

Now 73 Prisoners in the
County Jail -
There were 73 prisoners in the county
jail this morning and this with the thermometer in the
90s. Then it is considered that the jail was built
to accommodate about twenty-five, it can be judged
whether or not the institution is over-crowded.
The highest record of attendance is 82
and was reached in Sheriff W. S. Cranes
administration. As a usual thing the number dwindles very
materially in summer, but this year no such decrease can
be noticed. This indicates that the regular jail
population is growing.
In the wintertime many persons
purposely commit some minor offense in order to bread
into jail and thus secure food and shelter, but that
class steer clear of prison in the summer. No sane person
would purposely break into the Jasper county bastile
during the heated term crowded as it is.

HERES A TIP
Add a dry sponge to your
crisper drawer to draw excess moisture that would
otherwise spoil the vegetables.
"We had an
unfortunate event recently in our upstairs
bathroom. The toilet overflowed, and when we
tried to turn off the water, the knob to turn it
off wouldnt budge. Heres some good
advice from the plumber, for which we paid
dearly: Turn water valves on and off twice a year
to keep them from sticking. Know where your
homes water cutoff valve is, and have the
necessary tool to close it readily
available." -- L.E. in Ohio
"Instead of buying
pricey air freshener for your car, just put one
sheet of your favorite dryer sheet under your
seat. You will definitely save money, and your
car will smell great." -- I.T. in South
You can use vegetable
oil to remove the leftover sticky bits of a price
tag. Rub it directly on the paper and adhesive.
Let it set for a minute or two, and rub off with
a paper towel.
"When you have
soups, stews or meats to freeze, let the food
cool to room temperature, then do this:
Double-line a large container with self-sealing
plastic bags. Fill the bags and let all the air
out of them. Lay in the freezer flat. They stack
much better and take up way less room." --
M.K. in Texas
Banish mildew from
beneath entryway welcome mats: Mix 1 cup bleach
into 1 gallon of water and use it to scrub away
mildew from concrete. Let dry and seal with a
concrete sealer. Be sure to allow the area some
sunlight from time to time.
