Transpired in the City and County since our last Issue.
W. P. ENNIS ARRESTED.
Charged With Hauling
Baggage Without a
W. P. Ennis, the well known drayman of
this city, was arrested this morning on two separate
charges preferred by W. L. Norris, the proprietor of the
Carriage and Baggage Line. Last night when the members of
the Eastern Star returned from Jasper Mr. Ennis met them
at the depot with his large furniture car and drove them
home, and this morning he hauled the baggage of the
"Railroad Ticket Co." from the depot up town.
This caused his arrest.
Mr. Ennis pays a license for a dray
wagon and the license for carrying passengers and baggage
is entirely distinct. The case was set for 3 oclock
this afternoon in police court but it is compromised and
dismissed upon payment of the costs. The terms of the
compromise were not made public.
The Jasper County County
Commission met for their regular meeting
yesterday morning in the Carthage Courthouse.
One of the items of order was
to name the members of the newly formed Jasper
County Law Enforcement Grant Application
Presiding Commissioner John
Bartosh nominated and the Commission confirmed
Brian Christmas, Webb City; Leslie Jones, Carl
Junction; Stan Heater, Joplin; James Woestman,
Carthage; and Doug Crandall, Carthage as
The Committee is to meet at
least once a year and disperse funds to local law
enforcement agencies throughout the county.
After the vote, Commissioner
Jim Honey thanked members of the former grant
committee that was dissolved by the Commission
last week for their service. Honey, who was
absent from last weeks meeting, then
assumed that Sheriff Archie Dunn would still
chair the new committee. That notion was quickly
rebuffed by Bartosh and Commissioner Darieus
Adams. Sheriff Dunn was not at this meeting.
There was some good advice
in one a the local employment agencies
newsletter the other day. It was talkin
bout how ta judge if your stayin
in line for a career advancement.
It grabbed me partly
because of its simplicity. Basically it said
dont do anything that most rational
folks would think is stupid.
Most likely if we all
adhered to that advice we wouldnt need
near as many civil court judges or divorce
Now the hitch of course is
definin the word "rational."
It also assumes that you are one, a rational
person that is.
I suppose most feel they
have a lot easier time identifyin
stupid folks than they do findin
rational examples of the species.

HERES A TIP
pills easier to swallow by crushing them and
putting them in a bit of jelly or applesauce.
Make sure, especially if its a prescription
medicine, that it can be crushed. -- U.L. in
To keep kids from
running into a closed sliding-glass door, cut out
a small picture of something thats brightly
colored, "laminate" it by taping it
across both sides and then tape it to the door at
childrens eye level. -- E.R. in New York
Painting season is in
full swing at my house, and here are my two
favorite painting tips: One is to lightly soap
the windows (glass only) and let it dry. Any
paint splatters will land on the soap, which can
be easily wiped away when the paint is dry. The
other is to give locks, hinges and doorknobs a
light coat of petroleum jelly. It works the same
way, and when polished away, it leaves a nice
shine to hardware.
Heres a great
spring facial: Split an avocado, mash half of it
and use it as a mask. Let sit for up to five
minutes, then rinse away with warm water.
Cleaning windows? Use a
nylon net scrubbie from the kitchen to remove
bugs from screens. It also works really well to
scrub bugs off the car grille or windshield.
Heres a great tip
you can use when parallel parking in front of a
storefront. Check the reflection to see if it
looks like theres room when backing in or
pulling forward. -- O.W. in California
