A man was pulled over for speeding down the highway; the officer came to the drivers window and said, "Sir, may I see your drivers license and registration?" The man said, "Well officer I dont have a license, it was taken away for a DUI." The officer, in surprise, said," What, do you have a registration for the vehicle?" So the man replied, "No sir, the car is not mine I stole it, but I am pretty sure I say a registration card in the glove box when I put the gun in it." The officer stepped back, "There is a gun in the glove box?!?" The man sighed and said, "Yes sir, I used to kill the woman who owns the car before I stuffed her in the trunk." The officer steps toward the back of the car and says," Sir do not move, I am calling for backup." The officer calls for backup and about ten minutes another highway patrolman arrives. He walks up to the window slowly and asks the man for his drivers license and registration. The man said," Yes officer here it right here." It all checked out so the officer said," Is there a gun in the glove box sir?" The man laughs and says," No officer why would there be a gun in the glove box." He opened the glove box and showed him that there was no gun. The second officer asked him to open the trunk because he had reason to believe that there was a body in it. The man agrees and opens the trunk, no dead body. The second officer says, "Sir I do not understand, the officer that pulled you over said that you did not have a license, the car was stolen, there was a gun in the glove box, and a dead body in the trunk." The man looks the officer in the eyes and says, "Yeah and Ill bet he said I was speeding too."
"Your cat is rushing about like mad." "I know," the man conceded. "Kerrys just been neutered, and hes running around canceling engagements."
Means Another Rich Mine.
The old Pleasant Valley tract just southwest of this city has been mined for twenty years or more but has not yet lost to productiveness.
In a new shaft being sunk by Webb City parties at a distance of about two hundred feet from the old original Allen shaft a splendid face of almost pure jack is now being opened up at a depth of 125 feet. A five foot face has now been uncovered and it is probably that the face is 25 to 30 feet in thickness.
Some fine chunks of jack taken from the shaft yesterday are on exhibition at the Bank of Carthage and anyone has only to see them to realize that they mean another rich producing mine for Carthage.
The land on which this shaft is being put down is owned by H. C. Cowgill and Frank Hill of this city and parties at Wichita. The Hudson Mining Co. has a lease on it, and the Webb City miners are sub lessees.
