today's laugh

The father was reading the school-report which had just been handed to him by his hopeful son. His brow was wrathful as he read:

"English, poor; French, weak; mathematics, fair"; and he gave a glance of disgust at the quaking lad.

"Well, dad," said the son,"it's not as good as it might be, but have you seen that?" And he pointed to the next line, which read: "Health, excellent."


A teacher called for sentences using the word "beans."

"My father grows beans," said the bright boy of the class.

"My mother cooks beans," said another pupil.

Then a third popped up:"We are all human beans."

Fred Huber to Travel

Fred Huber received a telegram last night from the American Tobacco Co., at Kansas City offering him a position as traveling salesman. He will leave tomorrow morning to accept the position, and expects to have headquarters at Salina, Kan. If his territory is north of that point he will not return to Carthage till Christmas.

Mr. Huber has been employed at Walter Harrington's news and cigar stand in the Harrington hotel for several years and will doubtless make a successful salesman for his chosen line.



Z.M. Lindley was in from Avilla yesterday and today. He has just about recovered from the effects of the injuries received from a broken trolley wire which struck him in the temple while he was aboard an electric car some weeks ago.

  Today's Feature

CW&EP Centennial Celebration.

This morning's Carthage Chamber of Commerce Good News Carthage gathering will act as the kick off for CW&EP's celebration of a century of service to Carthage. Business and community leaders will get a first hand look at the electrical generation plant this morning at the breakfast sponsored by the publicly-owned utility.

The citizens of Carthage established the authority for the electric portion of the utility with the approval of a $25,000 bond issue to purchase two steam driven 90 kilowatt dynamos on November 23, 1898. A separate Board of Public Works was established in 1907 and CW&EP became responsible for the water supply for the community. In 1924 the utility also took over the operation of the wastewater disposal plant. The Carthage Fire Department was under the supervision of CW&EP between 1942 and 1991.

Other activities are planned for the Centennial observance and will be announced at a later date. A display of photographs and memorabilia can be seen at the CW&EP office on the square. A booklet with a short history will soon be available.
