A man and his wife were driving their Recreational Vehicle across the country and were nearing a town spelled Kissimee. They noted the strange spelling and tried to figure how to pronounce it - KISS-a-me; kis-A-me; kis-a-ME. They grew more perplexed as they drove into the town.

Since they were hungry, they pulled into a place to get something to eat. At the counter, the man said to the waitress:

"My wife and I can’t seem to be able to figure out how to pronounce this place. Will you tell me where we are and say it very slowly so that I can understand."

The waitress looked at him and said: "Buuurrrgerrr Kiiiinnnng."

If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to see it do the other trees make fun of it?

A Chronological Record of Events as they have Transpired in the City and County since our last Issue.

How to Address Soldiers.

Numerous inquiries have been made at the post office, says the Kansas City Times, as to how letters to men in the army, especially the volunteer army, should be addressed. The local authorities say that correspondence should be directed to the place where the regiment is in camp, stating the company and regiment of which the man is a member, as, for example, "Henry Jones, Company C, Third Regiment, Missouri Volunteers, Jefferson Barracks, Mo."

The letters are first delivered at headquarters of the camp, where they are sorted and turned over to the adjuntants of various battalions.

To be a Nurse in Cuba.

Miss Minnie Richie, a sister of Mrs. Judge Waters of this city, who has been superintendent of the Silver Cross hospital at Joliet, Illinois, for the past two years, has resigned that position to tender her services as nurse to the United States army in Cuba.

Miss Richie is a graduated nurse and had five years experience in the Cook County Hospital at Chicago before she became superintendent of the hospital in Joliet.

Some of the older residents of Carthage may remember her as she taught in the Carthage schools about ten years ago and made her home with her sister, Mrs. Waters.

I have had the privilege of speaking to several groups since holding the position here at artCentral and the gallery. Yesterday I enjoyed the opportunity to meet with the members of Alpha Delta Kappa, a nice group of retired teachers from the community who meet monthly. My presentation to them included some history about the Hyde House and Katherine Hyde, an overview of what membership with artCentral entails, what we offer here at Hyde House to our members including the pottery facilities and library, rental possibilities for usage of the house for special events, and a bit about our annual children’s artCamp held each summer for kids aged 7-14. The ladies bought a number of our wonderful art-cookbooks and were very generous to give to me a check to go towards students attending artCamp this year. I asked them for suggestions for additional students who might be interested in attending camp, and thanked them for their interest in what we are doing here, and in the community. I hope to create a display this week in the lobby of United Missouri Bank, as trust officer Lora Honey Phelps contacted me with information that the bank is interested in displaying art in their various facilities. I will put a group of Miss Hyde’s paintings in this display as a first offering, and hope to create some different displays in the future. I am very happy to say we have had wonderful response to the current exhibition here in the gallery, as we have welcomed folks on each day that we have been open. I hope that you will take advantage of our last weekend this week and visit the gallery on Friday, Saturday or Sunday from noon until 5:00 pm. I have spent this week working on the details for the next exhibition which will open March 27th and I think the viewers of a show called "SOUL FOOD"will find the new floral photography of Mary Ann Soerries, Joplin, a fun departure from her usual presentation--- very fun!

I find it useful to lose somethin’ ever now and then. Nothin’ seems ta motivate gettin’ rid of those things ya figure might come in handy some day like tryin’ ta find somethin’ ya need right now.

That pair a roller skates that ya thought might actually be used at some point in your life suddenly becomes a startin’ place for a heap of junk.

If your really on a roll, you’ll find a trunk or two that’s barely holdn’ together under the load of your other "treasures" long enough to get to the curb. Havin’ an empty box always helps the motivation. Ya keep lookin’ for junk to fill it with.

The worst thing is if ya find what your lookin’ for too early in the day. Now ya got a big mess and no need to continue. At least you can still brag to how smart ya are not to throw anything out.

This is some fact, but mostly,

Journey Along the Wellness Path


Become amazed by whole foods and the power they contain in providing us with what we need to be healthy. One such whole food is Limu Moui, a prized sea plant from the South Pacific. In 1913, fucoidan was isolated from this brown algae and became the subject of more than 650 scientific studies.

Fucoidan is clearly one of natures most impressive natural compounds. According to an expert in brown seaweed, Dr. Kyosuke Owa, fucoidan contains the "same type of antibodies found in human mother’s milk". Impressive research studies show that fucoidan stimulates the production of immune cells. Scientists have looked closely at the lifestyles of the Tongans of the South Pacific and discovered their predominant consumption of this brown seaweed of which these people have harvested and consumed for many generations, accounting for the high incidence of healthy centenarians.

But to isolate fucoidan from this Limu Moui plant only tells us a fragment of the whole story of what this deep sea plant really provides. A quick breakdown of nutrients are:

* glyconutrients which are fundamental nutrients vital for cell to cell communication

*seventeen amino acids which are the building blocks within the body

*essential fatty acids which build nerve cells and orchestrate hormones

*essential minerals and vitamins which feed and direct every organ system in the body

*powerful antioxidants that protect the body from dangerous free radicals

No parts and pieces with this food! Only generously wholesome and health-giving, life-sustaining food.
