Farmers Northwest of
Town Will Slaughter Rabbits.
Mr. J. W. Weaver, of
northwest Carthage, was in the City today and informed a
representative that the farmers of that section have
decided to have another grand charity rabbit hunt for
Friday. The last hunt resulted in the slaughter of 225
rabbits, but, according to Mr. Weaver, three or four
times that number escaped, and as they are doing much
damage, the farmers have concluded to have another hunt
and turn the rabbits over to the charity union of this
city. Mrs. W. E. Hall, who superintended the distribution
before, says that there were persons who had not tasted
meat for weeks fed as a result of the last hunt.
An urgent invitation is
extended to every Carthaginian who can handle a gun. The
hunters will start about 8:30 oclock Friday morning
from Mr. Weavers place, three and a half miles
northwest of this City.
The Carthage City
Council will meet this evening at 7:30 p.m. in
the Council Chambers of City Hall. Items on the
agenda include the second reading of the
ordinance authorizing the cost share agreement
for the Fairview Interchange.
Items in their
first reading include a proclamation for Brynn
Cummins and an ordinance entering into agreement
with APAC-Missouri, Inc. for the Annual Paving

gallon of tack oil. It was the low bid and comes

As has been
reported in previous issues of the Mornin
Mail, there will be no City-Wide cleanup this
year. This portion of the City contract with
Allied Waste was eliminated during a recent
amendment to the agreement. Citizens may instead
place one (1) bulky item for collection in
addition to regular trash in the normal place of
collection. The City is in the process of getting
bids to hold a hazardous waste drop-off site.
Dates will be announced when the service is
I suppose everone
has a different set a priorities ta go by. I
reckon thats why we have such a selection
of automobiles and breakfast cereals ta choose
from. Some folks want ta own land, some have ta
have money in the bank, some stuff their money in
a mattress. Its all a matter of priority.
Some folks like ta always be
breakin new ground, pushin to the
limit. Others like ta savor tradition.
One a the problems with
priorities is that everone has em.
This is why things get confusin. With
everthing laid out on the table, it makes
it a lot easier for folks ta understand what
youre up to.
During the budget sessions,
there are always plenty of opportunities for the
City ta pick and choose. Knowin whats
important should make us better pickers.
This is some fact, but mostly,

Reducing Foot Odor
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
I am a waitress. Naturally, I am on my feet all
day long. When I get home and kick off my shoes,
my feet have a terrible odor. I take a daily
shower. If I bathe more often, my skin dries out.
Is there some way to control this smell? -- C.M.
ANSWER: One way to
decrease foot odor is to keep the feet as dry as
When you go to
work, take with you a change of stockings. If you
can get two stocking changes in while youre
at work, all the better. Wear shoes that have
openings in them for ventilation.
Never wear the
same shoes two days in a row. Give them a chance
to thoroughly dry.
have to take lots of showers every day, but you
can wash your feet before going to work and
immediately upon coming home. Dry them with a
hair dryer. After theyve dried, spray them,
top and bottom, with an antiperspirant that has
aluminum chloride in it.
At night, before
going to bed, spray your feet with a solution of
sodium bicarbonate. Put half a teaspoon of
bicarbonate in a cup of water. This spray changes
the acidity of the skin and gets rid of some of
the odor-producing germs that cling to the feet.
