THE COUNTRY CORNER
Many years of research have been spent regarding
the invention of the toothbrush. Reasearchers knew the
purpose of the device and wanted to know and acknowledge
the originating location.
A farmer's cow was stolen and he was complaining
loudly. His cousin from Dublin attempted to console him.
missionary was preaching to the African tribe,
Stray Wolf, an Oklahoma Indian who had become rich in oil, bought an expensive automobile and soon had an accident on the public highway. Limping and somewhat bruised, he came into the local salesroom, carrying a pocketful of money. He wanted another car and explained the loss of his original puchase with these words, "Drive out big red car. Buy moonshine. Take a drink. Step on gas. Trees and fence go by. Pretty soon big bridge come down road. turn out to let bridge go by. BANG! Car gone. Gimme 'nother."
In a county debating society the question for discussion was: "Resolved, That the horse is more useful than the cow." A long, lank farmer made the closing argument in favor of the cow. Growing eloquent, he said: "Honorable judges, we concede all that our opponents have said in favor of the horse, but we claim for the cow all that is said in favor of the horse and more. The cow is a work animal as well as the horse; morever the cow gives milk with which to feed the children; the flesh of the cow is used for food; her horns are made into combs and such things; then when the old cow lays down and dies we can take her hide, stretch it over the ridge pole for a roof of our house, and turn her tail up for a lightning rod!"
Old RED SCHOOLHOUSE
There's a little old red schoolhouse,
today it stands abandoned,
think of that old schoolhouse
I love to
think them over,
