today's laugh

Pete and Gladys were looking at a new living room suite in the furniture store.

Pete said to the salesman, "We really like it, but I don’t think we can afford it."

The salesman said, "You just make a small down payment, and then you don’t make another payment for six months."

Gladys wheeled around with her hands on her hips and said,

"Who told you about us?"

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

Mrs. J. A. Davis Seriously Ill.

Mrs. J. A. Davis has been quite sick for several days of pneumonia at her home at the corner of Fulton and Sixth streets. Her condition yesterday afternoon became so serious that it was thought that she could not live through the night. Her sons, Chris, who is a street railway conductor in St. Louis, and Al, of Kansas City, were telegraphed for. The former arrived this morning and the latter is expected this evening. Mrs. Davis is reported better today.

Hale Boggess, who has been confined to his home on Third street for the past week with an attack of malarial fever, is able to be at his place in the Central National bank today.

Over 1,902 Attend MU Extension Programs

Thursday, April 22 was set aside as a "Day in the Life" to provide a snapshot of what University of Missouri Extension is doing in southwest Missouri. Over 1,902 residents attended a program or received assistance from MU Extension on that day.

Programs that day included a workshop on tomato grafting, a class on using social media and an advanced Excel software training class, several 4-H Club meetings, a workshop focused on forage production, Food Power Adventure and several nutrition classes at area schools.

1,243 children were reached on April 22 with nutrition programming through MU Extension’s Family Nutrition Education Program. There were also 188 students reached through various 4-H programming.

"There was also work going on that day that was not visible in our online program calendar," said David Burton, civic communication specialist with MU Extension. "Through media outreach and social media efforts we reached over 39,000 households that day."

Just Jake Talkin'

A friend a mine just got one a those "free" puppies.

It began by learnin’ the choices cuts of various pieces of furniture. Those chewy morsels that never quite look the same after a few weeks of dog trainin’.

If ya notice, owners are always asked to attend obedience classes along with the dog. I’ve often wondered exactly who was bein’ trained. ‘Course dogs learn fast, just like kids. They know what they can get away with and eventually the owners come to understand the relationship also.

This new pup will have a good home and probl’y get away with enough to make ever’one happy. I’m gonna wait a few weeks ta visit so as ta not disturb the ritual of gettin’ into the routine.

This is some fact, but mostly,

ART NOTES from Hyde House

by Sally Armstrong, Director of artCentral

What a wonderful expression of interest and support we received at Hyde House Gallery this past Sunday afternoon! There were a large number of artists, members, and guests present throughout the afternoon when we opened the "5X5 Silent Art Auction" for the first day, to bidding. Thirty of our guests chose to bid upon nearly all of the 73 entries that were displayed, and this is a good start. I welcomed a group of those special guests who were invited to attend and be recognized as the first "25 Founders of artCentral" and among these attending were Sandy Higgins, Michelle Newton-Hansford, Janet Ott, Jim Bracht, and Jerry Ellis of Carthage, and Chris Weber of Monett. Each of these had varied but important roles in the origins of our organization, artCentral. Not present but recognized were Bill Snow, Perry Fleming, Elliott Hunter, Don Knost and Susan Steen-Knost, Jennifer Morris, Shelia Buchallew, Bob Fasken, Lowell Davis, Dr.& Mrs. W.C. Dandridge, Robin Putnam and Irene VanGilder. Currently out of the country are honorees Tom Simpson and Sam Butcher, and honored posthumously were Wendy Christensen, Susan Humber & Joan Hudkins. Lastly and most importantly, Bob Tommey was honored as the first founder, who actually began the idea of a fine art organization in Carthage and dedicated a number of years to that endeavor. We thank these as well as an even larger group who have worked tirelessly since those early years to keep artCentral going and growing. Please remember that you can participate either by bidding on or just viewing our current exhibition again Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from noon until 5:00. This is a busy weekend in Carthage, but add this show to your list of events and you will be glad that you did!
