Millions of years ago, there was no such thing as the wheel. The only way to move things was by carrying or dragging. One day, some primitive guys were watching their wives drag a dead mastodon to the food preparation area. It was exhausting work. The guys were getting tired just WATCHING.
Then they noticed some large, smooth, rounded boulders and they had an idea. They could sit on the boulders and watch! This was the first in a series of breakthroughs that ultimately led to television.
Can you believe a candidate dropped out of the race because of a lack of campaign funds? Anyone who stops spending just because hes out of money doesnt belong in Washington anyway!
A cantor brags before his congregation in a booming, bellowing voice: "Two years ago I insured my voice with Lloyds of London for $750,000."
There is a hushed and awed silence in the room. Suddenly, from the back, the voice of an elderly woman is heard, "So what did you do with the money?"
Guy Farwell Accidentally Shot.
Guy G. Farwell is laid up by a flesh wound in his left leg below the knee, caused by a pistol shot fired by a man named Roy Daniels, who is in the employ of Dr. Balsley.
Mr. Farwell resides just south of Dr. Balsley, and last evening Mr. Daniels was in the rear yard practicing with a pistol, shooting at a mark, when one of the bullets penetrated Mr. Farwells barn, where he was standing and hit him on the calf of the leg, passing clear through without striking a bone. No serious results are anticipated unless blood poisoning should set in.
Good Eastern Star Meeting.
The Eastern Star lodge held a special meeting last evening and initiated Miss Bradley. A large number of lodge members were out and at the close of the meeting ice cream and cake were served, which were much enjoyed by all.
