Dakota tribal wisdom says that when you discover you are riding a dead horse, the best strategy is to dismount. However, in business we often try other strategies with dead horses, including the following:
1. Buying a stronger whip.
2. Changing riders.
3. Saying things like "This is the way we always have ridden this horse."
4. Appointing a committee to study the horse.
5. Arranging to visit other sites to see how they ride dead horses.
6. Increasing the standards to ride dead horses.
7. Appointing a team to revive the dead horse.
8. Creating a training session to increase our riding ability.
9. Comparing the state of dead horses in todays environment.
10. Change the requirements declaring that "This horse is not dead."
11. Hire contractors to ride the dead horse.
12. Harnessing several dead horses together for increased speed.
13. Declaring that "No horse is too dead to beat."
14. Providing additional funding to increase the horses performance.
15. Do a CA Study to see if contractors can ride it cheaper.
16. Purchase a product to make dead horses run faster.
17. Declare the horse is "better, faster and cheaper" dead.
18. Form a quality circle to find uses for dead horses.
19. Revisit the performance requirements for horses.
20. Say this horse was procured with cost as an independent variable.

The Baby Has a Home.
The baby abandoned in the yard of a North Maple street residence did not remain long without a home after being taken to the poor farm. The baby arrived at the farm and was taken the next day by a man and his wife named Dudley who lives on Cedar street in this City. They are excellent people and will adopt the child.
Tomatoes a Few Years Ago.
"I remember well - and I am not an old man either - when the tomato plant was considered poisonous," said Professor Blanton. "My mother used to call the tomato the love apple. The vegetable was cultivated for its ornamental value strictly, and while nearly every southern farmer had it in his garden he warned his children against it as if it contained arsenic or strychnine. I dont think it has been longer than thirty-five years since the tomato was regarded in this light."
