He Had Tough Luck.
When ex-Sheriff Crane, of this city,
opened a new mining lease near Joplin the other day there
were more prospectors on hand to take lots than there
were leases to go round. The Webb City Sentinel tells a
good story on one of these fellows who was eager to get a
lot. He fortified himself with a bottle of apple jack, a
quilt, horse blanket and an overcoat and went out to the
land the evening previous to its opening for mining
purposes with the intention of being on the lot he wanted
early next morning so as to hold it, but after sleeping
in a graveyard all night and coming near freezing to
death, he awoke to find that some other miner had jumped
his claim during the night.

Jefferson City, Mo.
Attorney General Chris Koster today warned
Missourians to be aware of disaster-relief scams
in the aftermath of the tornado that devastated
Joplin on Sunday.
"There are people who see
opportunity in disaster," Koster said.
"Scam artists will show up, pose as
charities, and fraudulently solicit donations
from people who are anxious to help those in
Koster advises Missourians to
be cautious of anyone wanting on-the-spot
donations or refusing to provide written,
verifiable information about the charitable
organization represented. He also said to use a
credit card or check for donating so that you
have a record of the expense.
Koster said those wishing to
make donations to help the Joplin relief effort
can feel safe doing so through established
charitable organizations that are already working
on the ground in Joplin such as: American Red
Cross (http://www.redcross.org/), Salvation Army
and Southern Baptist Disaster Relief
"At my direction, FEMA
Administrator Craig Fugate and Deputy
Administrator Rich Serino have traveled to
Missouri to make sure our federal government is
working hand in hand with state and local
officials to give them the help that they need.
And on Sunday, I myself will travel to Missouri
to talk with folks whove been affected, to
talk to local officials about our response effort
and hopefully to pray with folks and give them
whatever assurance and comfort I can that the
entire country is going to be behind them."

HERES A TIP
Use a mesh bag to hold
flowers in place in a vase. Just roll or wad it
up and put it down in the bottom of the vase.
When youre done with the flowers, you can
use a stick to swish the bag around and loosen
any gunk inside the vase when cleaning. Launder
the mesh or just toss it.
When freezing leftovers,
especially soup or stew, consider using
zipper-closing bags. They can be filled and
frozen flat, then stacked nicely. They take up
much less room than standard containers.
"To make a
waterproof mattress protector in a pinch, slit a
large garbage bag down the side and bottom, lay
it flat over the mattress and cover with a beach
towel. Then put the sheet over that. The garbage
bag protects the mattress; the towel makes it
comfortable." -- U.D. in Tennessee
"Keep extra liner
bags in the bottom of the garbage can. They are
handy, so youll be more likely to reline
the can as soon as you take the garbage
out." -- K.P. in Massachusetts
Keep a box of baking
soda in the fridge to absorb odors. When
its time to replace it, dump it down the
drain and follow with a small bottle of vinegar
and a hot water flush. Keep your kitchen smelling
nice and use fewer chemicals to do it.
"Heres a fun
invitation to make and receive: Blow up a balloon
and pinch (dont tie). Write the details of
the party on the balloon in permanent marker. Let
it dry fully before you deflate it. Then send
it!" -- R.A. in Washington
