New Proprietor at Webb
The Newland hotel passed
into new hands this morning. H.A. Mehnert is the name of
the new proprietor and J. E. Payfair that of the manager.
A renovation of the hotel will be made, and some material
interior changes and improvements will be made to meet
the demands of the guests who want an up-to-date hotel. A
very enjoyable informal hop was given in the Newland
Saturday night as kind of an introductory reception to
the new management, in which "many ladies fair"
and "gentlemen gallant," participated, and
stepped systematically to the sweet strains of music
drawn from the piano by Prof. G.A. Stevens, of Hoffman
Harness Thieves Last

One a the biggest
mysteries I have encountered is why they put
bright red labels on those individual servings of
grape jelly at the restaurants. Red labels should
be on strawberry. Purple on grape. The only thing
I can figure is that more folks use strawberry
and they are tryin to fool us into
usin more grape. I dont know.
Another thing is the day I was
lookin for butter in the grocery store and
ran across some stuff that was labeled as
"imitation margarine." What in the
world could that be? Thats like makin
hamburger patties out of "imitation soybean
meal." Could be it works like the math
formulas where two negatives make a positive.
Imitation margarine would actually then be real

Im not supposed to understand.

This Is A Hammer

Cant Keep His Bathroom Clean
Q: When my mom
came to visit my apartment last week, she said
she was appalled at the state of the bathroom. I
admit its a little grungy, but I dont
have the time to scrub it from top to bottom
every week. Is there a fast way to clean it so it
passes muster the next time my mom visits
unannounced? -- Kyle B., Atlanta
A: Yes, there is a
fast way, but its going to take an initial
investment of time and then a minor devotion to
consistency. If you can meet this challenge,
however, youll never have a grungy bathroom
again -- and the rest of the apartment may
improve, too. Plus, being able to clean up after
yourself is extremely attractive to the ladies.
you have to do:
Remove old magazines, empty the trash can, move
the laundry hamper out (temporarily, at least),
throw out old or unused lotions, creams, gels and
other accessories, and clean out the medicine
--Prep for the
first cleaning: Put all the towels into the
laundry. Place all countertop items into a box or
basket and take out of the room for now. Same
with shower items. Take down the shower curtain;
if the liner is very dirty or moldy, throw it out
and purchase a new one.
"big" cleaning: Starting from the top
down, clean cobwebs from the ceiling with a
broom. Wipe down painted wall surfaces with a
cloth and mild soap and water (pay attention to
the baseboards). Clean bath tile with a
mold-fighting tile cleaner and rinse. Scrub the
toilet. Wipe down the outside of the toilet with
a disinfecting cleaner and hot water. Clean the
sink, countertops, towel racks and bathtub, and
rinse clean. Lastly, sweep the floor, then
wet-mop with disinfecting cleaner and hot water,
rinse and let dry.
aside just 15 minutes every week to clean the
bathroom. Declutter by placing all counter items
into a box. Then just wipe down the counters,
sink and tub; scrub the toilet, and clean the
medicine cabinet mirror. Spread out the shower
curtain liner and spray with a disinfecting
cleaner or a mold-fighting cleaner, let sit while
you sweep the floor, and then rinse off. Empty
the trash, and youre done.
Consistency is the key to a clean apartment: Set
aside 15-30 minutes per room, weekly, to clear
out clutter, dust and sweep.
