He Got His Overcoat.
W.H. Saulisberry lost his overcoat
about two weeks ago, and supposed some one had stolen it
out of his buggy. The other day, however, one of his
neighbors stated that she had seen the coat drop from the
buggy as Mr. Saulisberry was driving home and that
another neighbor had gone out soon after and picked it
up. Mr. Saulisberry looked into the matter but
didnt get his coat. He informed Chief of Police
Drake of the circumstance and that officer had the coat
inside of twenty minutes. The woman who was supposed to
have found it denied it at first, but when threatened
with arrest produced the coat. It was a good coat worth
from twelve to fifteen dollars.

I still get a big kick outa
some of the studies and their conclusions.
I see the other day that
some group has spent money figurin out
that quality day care is somehow related to
kids that dont end up in jail as often.
They compared these kids to ones who were
visited at least four times a year at home by
Like all studies, the
conclusions are drawn that fit the
expectations. I suppose there are some who
would conclude that social workers should
stop checkin on kids. Seems they are
the ones that get in trouble more often.
Course some common
sense would tell ya that kids with any kind
of quality care make for more stable adults.
Just a guess, but stable adults probly
raise more stable kids.
This is some fact, but

THIS IS A HAMMER

Key Snapped Off
In Door Lock
Q: A couple of days ago, I was
struggling to unlock the deadbolt of the side
door on my garage, which tends to stick, when the
key actually snapped in half! I cant reach
the part inside the lock because it broke too far
inside. I dont want to spend a lot of money
on a locksmith, either. Meantime, I cant
unlock the door. How can I fix this? Do I need to
replace the entire deadbolt? -- Jolanda W.,
A: If youve already tried
to retrieve the broken half of the key with
needlenose pliers, a hat pin or thin wire with no
success, you can try the desperate measure of
dabbing a tiny amount of Superglue onto the half
of the key you do have, and carefully inserting
it -- without touching the sides -- until the
broken halves meet. Let it sit for a few seconds
and then carefully try to pull the entire key
straight out. If this doesnt work, you can
consider purchasing a key extractor kit, but the
ones that are most effective cost as much or more
than a locksmith visit
A good locksmith is licensed
and bonded, and should provide a written estimate
of the type of work to be done and the cost. He
or she should offer a couple of options once the
key is extracted: either lubricating the existing
lock and replacing the key, or replacing the
Because your garage deadbolt is
a non-emergency, you have an advantage in that
you can take your time and contact more than one
locksmith for an estimate. Try to get a
word-of-mouth recommendation from friends;
otherwise, insist on an estimate first, and do
not give any locksmith your credit-card
information or other payment information ahead of
the visit or before work is performed.
HOME TIP: Did moisture inside
an exterior or car lock freeze in cold weather?
Heat the key for a few seconds and then carefully
insert to melt the ice
HOME TIP: The U.S. Consumer
Product Safety Commission estimates that more
than 25,000 residential fires every year are
associated with the use of space heaters, causing
more than 300 deaths. Stay safe!
