Part of W.H. Sterretts harness
was stolen yesterday afternoon under circumstances which
show the thief was very bold.
Mr. Sterrett lives at the corner of
Macon and Jersey streets and runs a grocery store at the
back end of his lot, fronting on Macon. His barn is not
over fifty feet from the back end of the store and the
surroundings are very open. About 4 oclock Mr.
Sterrett saw a man coming up the alleyway as if he had
come past his barn. The man had a gunny sack full of
something on his back. He came to within fifteen feet of
the store, turned east past Col. Pattons barn and
went to Garrison avenue and south.
Mr. Sterrett never once thought of the
man being a harness thief, much less that the fellow was
coming from his own barn. But shortly before 6
oclock, when the deliveryman went to hitch the
horse to the delivery wagon, it was discovered that the
breeching had been taken. Then it occurred to them that
the man seen was the thief.
From the Public
Public Works Director Zeb
Carney advised Public Works Committee Members the
Carthage Booster Club would like to paint over
the existing tiger paws on River Street with
permanent paint. Cecil Howard was present to
discuss the procedure that is used to paint the
tiger paws. Cecil stated the paws will be painted
during the month of August and it will take
approximately 2 hours. A brief discussion
followed. Due to safety reasons, Committee
Members and Staff requested that no tiger paws be
painted in any intersections and to keep the
tiger paws to the side of the street. TJ. Teed
made a motion to allow the Booster Club to paint
tiger paws with permanent paint from the Carthage
High School on River Street to the football
stadium entrance, north of Centennial. All ayes.
Zeb reported that approval was
given from Region M to purchase a glass crusher
machine at the Recycling Center. Once the crusher
machine is ordered it will take 6-8 weeks for
delivery. Street Department employees will
construct a 20x20 building for the crushed glass.
Zeb stated the City would be reimbursed for these
through the grant.

HERES A TIP
"I love vegetable
soup, but I find that the canned soups dont
have enough actual vegetables and are very high
in sodium. My daughter will make me a great big
pot of homemade veggie soup about once a month,
and we portion it out into single-serving plastic
containers. Once they cool, we freeze them, and I
have a constant supply." -- V.B. in Ohio
When spray-painting a
small item, tuck it into a paper shopping bag.
You can spray it without the overspray being a
big deal. You also can use this technique when
spray-painting something outdoors on a windy day
or when working in your garage. If the item is
larger, try to find a comfortable-size cardboard
"To make salads for
lunch, I wash and cut my salad greens and then
portion them out into zipper-top plastic bags. I
put an appropriate amount of dressing in a small,
sealable container and stick it right in the bag
with the greens. When I get to work (or to the
park for a picnic), I pour the dressing into the
bag and shake to distribute it. Then, I just dump
the salad into my bowl." -- P.M. in Oregon
To clean and deodorize a
microwave, spoon 2 tablespoons of baking soda
into 3 cups of water in a Pyrex or heavy glass
measuring cup. Boil for 2-3 minutes in the
microwave; let sit for 2 minutes and then wipe
out the inside of the microwave with a cloth.
Rinse the cloth with the soda water and wipe out
anything left behind. Pour the water down your
drain with some vinegar to freshen that as well.
