A dyslexic man walks into a bra.
An old man goes to his doctor and says,
"I dont think my wifes hearing is as
good as it used to be, what should I do?"
The doctor replies, "Try this test
to find out for sure. When your wife is in the kitchen
doing dishes, stand fifteen feet behind her and ask her a
question. If she doesnt respond keep moving closer,
asking the question until she hears you."
The man goes home and sees his wife
preparing dinner. He stands fifteen feet behind her and
says, "Whats for dinner, honey?"
He moves to ten feet behind her and
asks again, no response. Five feet, no answer.
Finally he stands directly behind her
and says, "Honey, whats for supper?"
She says, "For the fourth time, I

Nearly All the Money
for the Carriage Factory Has Been Raised.
The committee appointed to solicit
funds for the purchase of a site for the carriage factory
has been meeting with fair success the past few days and
are on the last $100 of the amount, and though the
subscriptions come very slowly the amount is so
comparatively small that they could hardly fail in
raising it. Major A. F. Lewis and Henry Keim were
soliciting today and put in the time to the best
advantage. The contract for erecting the building has
been let to James Ross on the condition that the
remaining $100 be raised.
The ladies of the Soldiers
Monument Association gave their pension day dinner at the
Lewis building today. Pension vouchers were made out free
of charge. The dinner was very well patronized and the
ladies took in $16.60, nearly all of which is clear.

HERES A TIP
Keep medication bottles
to hold buttons, spare change or even hand
lotion. Be sure to clean well before reusing.
"Stuff boots with
clean foam egg cartons to keep them from flopping
over between wearings. If the leg material is not
heavy, you can even cut a carton in half
lengthwise. Rolled-up magazines also will work
for this purpose." -- I.Y. in New York
fabric-softener sheets can be used to shine
faucets and to clean the tub. I use mine for
dusting around the house too. To keep a steady
supply, I put an empty tissue box next to my
dryer. When the clothes (and the used sheets)
come out, I stuff them down in the box, and they
are ready whenever I need one." -- B.J. in
A chefs trick to
keep cooked spinach green is to make sure the pot
is not covered while cooking.
shrimp in a bouillon, put them in the freezer for
about 10 minutes before cooking. They will cook
up nice and tender. I have had success with this
when grilling too. When putting shrimp on a
skewer, I use double skewers, which hold about
five shrimp. When I thread the skewers side by
side, the shrimp are easier to turn over, and
they do not spin on the skewer." - R.R. in
To keep cheese blocks
moist and mold-free, place a piece of napkin
dampened with white vinegar in with the cheese in
a container with a tight-fitting lid.
