Laugh-A-Bit with Tidbits


A Texan was standing admiring the beauty of Niagara Falls when a New Yorker standing next to him said sarcastically: "I bet you don't have anything like this in Texas." "No," said the Texan, "but we've got plumbers who could fix it!"

This dramatic action signaled the beginning of the French Revolution, a decade of terror in which King Louis XVI and his wife Marie Antoinette were executed. • On July 12, 1861, special commissioner Albert Pike completes treaties with the Choctaw and Chickasaw tribes, giving the new Confederate States of America several allies in Indian Territory. Many of these tribes had been expelled from the Southern states in the 1830s and 1840s, but still chose to ally themselves with those states during the Civil War. • On July 8, 1918, author Ernest Hemingway is severely wounded while carrying a companion to safety on the Austro-Italian front


during World War I. Hemingway, working as a Red Cross ambulance driver, was decorated for his heroism. • On July 13, 1930, France defeats Mexico 4-1 and the United States defeats Belgium 3-0 in the first-ever World Cup football matches, played simultaneously in host city Montevideo, Uruguay. The World Cup has since become the world’s most-watched sporting event. • On July 9, 1941, crackerjack British cryptologists break the Enigma secret code used by the German army to direct groundto-air operations on the Eastern front. Various keys would continue to be broken by the Brits over the next year, each conveying information of even higher secrecy and priority. • On July 11, 1979, parts of Skylab, America’s first space station, come crashing down on Australia and into the Indian Ocean five years after the last manned Skylab mission ended. The cylindrical space station was 118 feet tall and weighed 77 tons. © 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

• It was actor-turned-politico Arnold Schwarzenegger who made the following sage observation: “Everybody pities the weak; jealousy you have to earn.” • If you’re like an average person, the time you spend blinking in one day adds up to about 30 minutes of shut-eye. • A New Yorker named Ashrita Furman holds the world record for the most world records: He has set 462 of them and currently holds 160. Among his exploits are the longest yodel (more than 26 hours); the longest distance traveled via acrobatic somersaults (12 miles, 390 yards); jumping up steps on a pogo stick (1,899 steps in 57 min-

Brigadier General Jon L. Trost - August 10, 1950

Jon L. Trost was born on August 10, 1950, to parents Lloyd and Carol Trost in the Graceville Hospital in Graceville and graduated from Appleton High School with the class of 1968. He continued his education at Moorhead State University, graduating in 1972. On May 26, 1972, he was united in marriage to Karin Pederson, who is also originally from Appleton. This union was blessed with the birth of 3 children, Stephanie, Erik & Brian. His civilian occupation was as an instructor and department leader for industrial technology at Coons Rapids Senior High School. His career there spanned more than 30 years. He resigned his position there after being appointed assistant adjutant general of the Minnesota National Guard July 1, 2004. Brigadier General Trost has more than 34 years of service as a citizen soldier serving in the Minnesota Army National Guard. He began his military career as an infantryman in 1970, and received his commission as a 2nd Lieutenant after graduating from the Minnesota Military Academy in 1974. Since that time he has served in a variety of leadership positions as an artillery officer, including battery commander with the 1st Battalion, 175the field artillery in Olivia; battalion commander of 1st Battalion, 151st Artillery located in Duluth; battalion commander of 1st Battalion, 125th Artillery in New Ulm; commander of the 34th Division Artillery headquartered in Brooklyn Park and Division Chief of Staff. Trost then served as Assistant Division Commander for Operations of the 34th Infantry Division. At the time this was written, Trost and his family were residents of Champlin, and when asked what has been the best part of serving as a leader in the National Guard, he responded that, "Working with people - the challenges of putting together a team wherever you go and enabling the success of others has been truly rewarding." "I have been extremely fortunate during my career as a member of the Minnesota National Guard. It has provided me with advanced education, leadership training as well as the opportunity to travel and develop friendships with many fine people that I have served with over the years," added Trost. Publisher's note: This biography was first published on on September 17, 2004 in the Appleton, Minnesota Home of the Honored Veterans book. Brigadier General Jon L. Trost is now, Major General Jon L. Trost (retired).

Clothes Sprinkler Q: My mom has an older clothes sprinkler bottle that features a ceramic cat design and is marked “Cardinal USA.” She thinks it has been in our family for at least 40 years. The big question is if it has any value other than just a few dollars. -- Kathy, Newton, Iowa A: Before permanent-press fabrics, getting wrinkles out of freshly laundered clothing often involved sprinkling each piece with water, rolling it slightly to distribute the moisture and then putting it in the laundry basket for ironing. During the 1920s and well into the 1950s, sprinkling bottles were found in almost every American home, and some of these containers have become quite collectible. For example, several collectors I contacted

Puzzle Answers

think your “cat” sprinkler could be worth in the $150 to $250 range, depending, of course, on its condition. ••• Q: I have a Sears, Roebuck and Company Consumer Guide Catalogue No. 104 dated 1897 from Chicago. Could this be of any value? -- David, Sun City, Ariz. A: In 1968, a facsimile edition of the 1897 Sears catalog was published by Chelsea House. I think this is what you have. The 1968 publication featured an introduction by S.J. Perelman and Richard Rovere. It was so popular that several later editions followed. The first edition can be found in used bookstores for about $20. ••• Q: I am enclosing a picture of a basket I purchased at a yard sale. I am curious about which Indian tribe made it. I also would like to know its approximate value. -- Brighton, Mich. A: I examined your picture, and think your basket was made fairly recently and in Mexico. These baskets generally sell for about $15 and can be found in most border towns. In my opinion, it is not an example of Native American work.
