Famous quotes containing the words carroll and/or county:

    They roused him with muffins—they roused him with ice—
    They roused him with mustard and cress—
    They roused him with jam and judicious advice—
    They set him conundrums to guess.
    —Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)

    A horse, a buggy and several sets of harness, valued in all at about $250, were stolen last night from the stable of Howard Quinlan, near Kingsville. The county police are at work on the case, but so far no trace of either thieves or booty has been found.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)
