tells his mother hes fallen in love and is going to
get married. Tony says, "Just for fun, Mom, Im
going to bring over two other female friends in addition
to my fiancée, and you have to try and guess which one
Im going to marry."
The next day, Tony brings 3 beautiful
women into the house and sits them down on the couch and
they chat for a while.
He then says, "Okay, Mom. Guess
which one Im going to marry."
She immediately replies, "The

His mother folds her arms across her

A Chronological Record of Events as they have
Transpired in the City and County since our last Issue.
MARRIED THE PREACHER.
Early yesterday morning Judge Brown
married a couple at his office whose wedding tour is a
little out of the ordinary.
The groom was the Rev. E.L. Easter of
Tecumseh, Howell county, aged 46, a Free Will Baptist and
claims to have performed more marriage ceremonies than
any other man in Howell county. His wife died two years
ago and having known Nancy Mason of Howard, this county,
since her birth he opened negotiations with matrimonial
intent and stood his ground until a treaty was signed in
the way of a marriage ceremony yesterday, Judge Brown
acting as chief justice.
When the bride displayed the flag of
truce in token of surrender the victorious D.D. marshaled
his forces consisting of a roan and a sorrel horse and
covered wagon, backed up by a little farm, and drove over
the mountains, secured his bride and traveled to Judge
Browns office to be married.
Move to Protect
The Missouri House Public
Safety Committee approved an amendment Tuesday
that would strengthen Missouri auto insurance
laws and protect Missourians from uninsured
out-of-state drivers. Offered by Rep. Tom
Flanigan, R-Carthage, the amendment was added to
an omnibus crime bill, HB 1205, that was then
voted do pass by the committee. Flanigans
amendment is similar to HB 1996, which he
Flanigans amendment would
expand Missouri liability laws to apply to
out-of-state drivers. Current law requires
Missouri drivers to maintain liability insurance
but does not apply to drivers registered outside
"Weve seen incidents
where law enforcement officials have been
powerless to take action against uninsured
motorists from other states because there is
nothing currently in law that covers this. The
weakness in Missouri law came to light after a
Jasper County resident was hit by an Oklahoma
driver in Joplin. The end result has been that
Missouri drivers, who have done everything to
abide by the law, are left with the bill to
repair damage to their vehicle," said
Flanigan. "With this change we can address a
weakness in Missouri law that has resulted in a
great deal of unfairness for Missouri drivers.
This will give law enforcement officials the
power they need to take action against uninsured
out-of-state motorists so that we can protect
Flanigans amendment would
require non-residents to adhere to the financial
responsibility laws of their state of residence.
Missouri law enforcement officials would be able
to hold out-of-state drivers responsible for not
having auto insurance. If out-of-state drivers
are not in compliance with their states
requirements, they would be guilty of a class C
misdemeanor and would have their driving
privileges in Missouri suspended. In addition,
the Missouri Department of Revenue would notify
the state in which the driver resides of the
HB 1205 now moves to the House
Rules Committee for approval before heading to
the House floor for discussion.
Over the years our
household has accumulated a collection of
ladders. I suppose most homeowners are
blessed with the same joy of ownership.
Id guess as investments ladders
dont make a lot of sense, ya only use
em a few times a year and the rest of
the time they just sit around takin up
space. The real benefit is not monetary, but
just plain handy.
As hard as they are to
loose, the question of "wheres the
ladder" seems to pop up on a regular
basis, followed by the "which one"
response. The little step, the big little
step, the little big step, the big step,
Grandpas old one, the new one, or the
Ive tried those,
theres just that one spot that I
cant quite get too. I still need one
just a little longer.
This is some fact, but

To Your Good Health

Fade on Their Own
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Would you
address plantar warts? Ive been told
theyre from a virus in the body and that
nothing can be done for them or keep them from
recurring. Is this so? -- D.W.
ANSWER: All warts, wherever
they are, come from an infection with one of the
more than 100 human papillomaviruses -- HPV.
Individual members of the HPV family have a
preference for particular body sites. Some head
for the soles of the feet to cause plantar warts.
"Plantar" is derived from a Latin word
meaning "sole of the foot."
If a plantar wart isnt
kicking up a fuss, it can be left alone.
Its not going to do any harm. Many such
warts disappear without any treatment. Some can
return, and there is not a whole lot to do about
preventing a second visit.
However, there is much to do
about a plantar wart that hurts. The method
chosen for wart removal must not leave a scar. A
scar on the bottom of the foot causes more
trouble than does a wart.
Look on the shelves of any
drugstore for wart-removal products that contain
salicylic acid, and follow the directions for
application carefully. Be patient. It takes more
than one application to get rid of the wart.
Duct tape sometimes works.
Thats right -- duct tape, the tape you buy
in a hardware store. Cover the wart with a piece
of it for six days. Remove the tape, soak the
foot and then gently rub the wart with a pumice
stone, obtainable in drugstores. Reapply the tape
after 12 hours. You might have to repeat this
procedure for two months before the wart leaves.
If home remedies bring no
success, the family doctor can step in with more
