"Whos repeating?" says
the dentist. "That was an echo."
Two Irishmen met once, and referred to
the illness of a third.
"Poor Michael Hogan! Faith,
Im afraid hes going to die," said one.
"And why would he die?" asked

my sowl, Michael Hogan is thinner than both of us put

M. M. Buergy Claims
$2,000 From City.
Attorney J. H. Tyree appeared before
the City Council in the interest of M. M. Buergy, who was
injured by the electric light wire in front of the
Commercial hotel last October. He presented a claim for
$2,000 damages and explained that they at one time began
suit but withdrew it.
The city attorney said that he filed a
motion requiring Mr. Buergy to file a bond for costs, and
that that was when the suit was withdrawn. The council
went on with business, ignoring the claim, not even
referring it to a committee.
Complaint was made that the extension
of the water mains on South Maple street, which should
have gone 1,600 feet, had only been made 600 feet and
that a new fire plug had been put in at the wrong place
on this line.
The water committee was instructed to

Hurry up and wait.
Nothin more frustratin for most
I grew up hearin Mom
say Dad didnt like ta stand in lines
cause of all his line standin
durin WWII. I seriously doubt he liked
it much before he joined the Air Corp.
aggravatin is to stand in long line
just to find out you get to take a number,
then wait some more till youre called..
I suppose seein those long lines in
front of a theater must mean folks think
its worth the wait.
Those who camp out on the
sidewalk just to get tickets to some event
have always been a curiosity, Ive done
some campin, but usually out in the
The universal rule of
havin to go to the end of the line if
ya cut in is taken seriously by those campers

HERES A TIP
"My husband has a
large family that lives quite a distance away. We
are visiting them for the first time with our two
young children. To keep the kids from feeling
overwhelmed (and to brush up myself), I created a
photo look book of the family members we are
likely to be around. The kids will be familiar
with their faces, and they wont seem as
much like strangers." -- U.L. in Washington
"I have a tip about
putting out candles. You can put a little water
in the bottom of a glass votive cup before you
put in a votive candle. Then, when the candle
burns and the wax goes down, it wont stick
to the cup. Thanks for the good tips." --

Have a leaky fridge
door? Try this first. Clean the seal gasket with
a mild soap and water. Then apply a very thin
layer of petroleum jelly to all sides. If you can
shut a dollar in the door and it slips right out,
you might need to replace the gasket.
"Everyone has had
the experience of putting a pair of socks in the
laundry, never to see them as a pair again. This
is a winner. I join my socks together with a
safety pin, and they always return to me as a
pair." -- J.P. in Maryland
A great way to clean the
shower naturally? Vinegar! Fill a spray bottle
with vinegar and spray directly on shower walls
after bathing. Its great at beating
bacteria and mold. And its a great natural
alternative to chemical cleaners.
How old is your fire
extinguisher? If you dont know, find out.
If you cant tell, replace it. Fire
extinguishers lose pressure over time -- even if
theyve never been used -- so they need to
be replaced or serviced every five to 10 years.
Yours might be marked with an expiration date. So
be safe this holiday, and check it out.
