Listen to a random
group of Americans attempting to sing "Happy
Birthday" and you will note that at any
given moment they somehow manage to emit more
different notes, total, than there are group
members, creating a somber, droning sound such as
might be created by severely asthmatic bagpipers,
so that the birthday person, rather than feeling
happy, winds up weeping into the cake. - Dave
A Chronological Record of Events as they have
Transpired in the City and County since our last Issue.
Met With Two Accidents.
Miss Alpha Junkin who in
company with her mother, is spending the summer in the
Rocky mountains near Ironton, Colo., met with two
accidents recently either one of which might have been
serious but which fortunately resulted in only slight
injuries to her.
In coming down a steep
mountain side the burro which she was riding stumbled and
fell hurling her head long over its head. She was only
slightly scratched and bruised and remounted the burro
for the remainder of the trip.
A few days later, in
company with her cousin, she was driving up a mountain
side in a single buggy, when the horse began backing and
could not be started forward. They were in imminent
danger of going over a steep embankment beside the
roadway and Miss Alpha jumped. She fell under the wheels
and the vehicle passed her. Although she was considerably
bruised she was not seriously hurt.

a waste water distillation unit.
Ive only got into
poison ivy once that I know about. As a kid out
huntin, I apparently laid down in a ripe
growth. It covered my stomach area. As
everone knows, the real problem is that the
more it itches, the more ya scratch. The more ya
scratch, the more it itches and spreads.
The real battle is ta get it to
stop itchin long enough ta let it heal. In
other words, the less ya do the better off ya
This is of course the opposite
of the procedure for the small cuts or abrasions
that kids come up with. In that instance there
needs ta be an effort to clean and cover, watch
for infection and spreadin. When a cut
started itchin a little, it was usually a
good sign. Sometimes its not so clear
whether an itch needs scratchin or
ignorin. Sometimes it comes down to will
power or knowledge, but usually just dumb luck.
This is some fact, but mostly,

Here's A Tip
By JoAnn Derson
like such a little thing, but buy a spray nozzle
for your garden hose. You wont waste as
much water, especially during tasks like washing
your car and watering different areas of the
garden. C.C. in California
Exercise experts say the best calorie burners in
the gym, in order, are: the treadmill, stair
climber, elliptical machine and stationary bike.
That is if you work out at the same intensity for
the same amount of time.
you have an event to look forward to, like a
family reunion, it can be scary for little
children to see relatives they dont see
often even if those relatives love the
kids to pieces. We got together a little photo
book of people we would see, and we went over the
pictures each night for several weeks before our
family reunion. The faces were more familiar to
the toddlers, and the older kids felt so grown-up
because they knew many of the relatives
names. J.L. in Florida
spilled a cup of red wine on one of my throw
pillows. When I tried to get the stain out, it
just spread and made it worse. I love the pillow
since it is just the right size and really soft,
so I covered it with new fabric. I ended up doing
all the assorted pillows in the same fabric, and
it made a big change in the room. I wish I had
done it sooner. I.F. in Pennsylvania
¥ For moister and softer
cookies, use honey as a substitute for a third of
the sugar in your cookie recipe.
¥ To get more gas for less,
buy gas during the cooler hours of the day or at
night. Gas is sold by volume, but it is more
dense when it is cool. Therefore, you get more
gas when you buy it cold. R.D. in Alabama
