Did Well in a Ten
Arthur Alexander of this city, was
quite successful in the ten mile road race at Joplin
yesterday. There were twenty-nine entries and he had a
three-minute handicap. He won fourth place and third time
and thereby captured a pair of bicycle tires, a 20th
century bicycle lamp, a pair of patent leather shoes and
a two-pound box of Whitmans candies.
The race was won in 29 minutes and ten
seconds. Fen Clark of this city, was one of those who
entered, but he fell after riding about three and
one-half miles and so dropped out.
The Sons of Veterans will give a

us ta put the Mornin Mail out on their
counters. I am reminded to remind ya because
I just realized that we will be startin
on our seventh year of existence as the
"small, town newspaper" next week.
Along with our loyal
sponsors, the folks that give us some room in
their businesses make this operation work.
Course you, the readers are big part of
the setup too. What really makes things click
though is if the readers show their
appreciation ever now and then for
those who make the distribution of this paper
If ya enjoy your daily dose
of the unique information available about
Carthage, let our sponsors and distribution
establishments know it. Thanks.
This is some fact, but

HERES A TIP
To fix a hole in drywall
that requires a healthy helping of joint
compound, cut a piece of screen slightly bigger
than the hole and tack it to the inside of the
drywall. You also can wad up a piece of aluminum
foil and shove it in the hole, pressing it in a
bit to create a recess for the compound. The foil
will keep the compound at the site of the hole,
allowing it to set up instead of fall down.
"I recently did a
little work on my car, and afterward I washed and
waxed it. My tools got pretty grimy, so I cleaned
them too. Since I had the wax out, I used it on
several of them to keep them from rusting in
storage." -- A Reader, via email
Add a fabric-softener
sheet to your vacuum bag when you change it.
While you clean, you will distribute the good
smell throughout your home. You also can use a
cotton ball scented with your favorite essential
oil or even perfume.
If you have trouble
threading needles, try spritzing some hairspray
on your finger, and twist the end of the thread.
It will keep the fibers together and stiffen it
enough to be easily threaded.
Its still possible
to save a bit of money on car maintenance if you
cant change your own oil. Learn common
add-ons that you will be offered at oil-and-lube
places. Air filters are surprisingly easy to
replace on your own, and so are windshield
wipers. Very often, the staff of auto-supply
chains will lend you tools or even assist you
right in the parking lot.
Got bug bites? Try these
for some relief from the itching of insect bites:
apple-cider vinegar; a paste of baking soda and
water, allowed to dry on the bite; a similar
paste of meat tenderizer and water; or
