A Chronological Record of Events as they have
Transpired in the City and County since our last Issue.
A RUNAWAY BOY.
Nine-Year-Old Son of
Rock is Missing.
nine-year-old son of J. A. Rock, residing at 824 East
Third street in this city, ran away from home last Friday
at noon and has not been seen since. The father moved his
family here about five weeks ago from Ringgold Co., Iowa,
and it is supposed that the boy has started to go back to
Iowa to relatives there.
Last Tuesday he
tried to run away but was caught and brought back, and at
the time he gave as his excuse that he wanted to go back
He tried the
wagon road the first time and as that plan did not work
he may have taken the railway route this time.
He is supposed
to have gone north, but no trace of him can be found in
any direction. The father wishes that any person who
finds his son may notify him at once at his address given
above, and hold the boy until settled for.

There are probly lots
a variations on the recipe for home made ice
cream, but if ya want to get into a real
discussion on the formula for success, get in
on the debate around the crankin end of
In our family at least,
there is as much care given in the placement
and quantities of ice and salt, the speed of
the crankin and the ideal time to quit
turnin as ever is considered in the
kitchen. Course the men have
traditionally taken care of the mechanical
end of the process, but the women have never
been bashful about advice on the matter.
I say care is given,
thats because everone seems to -
care that is. This last batch I was involved
in, we didnt put the traditional burlap
sack on top. Dont know if it made much
difference, it just seemed to be missin
somethin, but they ate it anyway.
This is some fact, but

NOTES from Hyde House
by Sally Armstrong,
Director of artCentral
Only two weeks before we open
for our first exhibition for 2010; I will bring
the details of that show next week. I want to
concentrate today on the wonderful art workshops
that artCentral has planned for March and April,
and as these have limited availability, I want to
get the word out quickly! There will be four, and
include oil painting, ceramics, drawing, and
watercolor. Our membership newsletter mailed last
week to our 200+ membership included a pink
informational form for the first of the
workshops, offered the weekend of March 4th, 5th
& 6th. This adult watercolor class is
available to both members and non-members, is led
by nationally known watercolor artist Jerry
Ellis, who as locals know, resides here in
Carthage and is a multiple award winner over the
many years of his art career. Jerry Ellis is an
elected signature member of the American
Watercolor Society, National Watercolor Society,
Watercolor USA Honor Society, Allied Artists of
America, N.Y., NY, Missouri Watercolor Society,
and has been honored as a Master Watercolor
Artist by the Transparent Watercolor Society of
America, the highest of designations. He has
served as director of the Transparent Watercolor
Society of America, Watercolor USA Honor Society,
and is a director of the Missouri Watercolor
Society. His paintings are included in private,
public, and corporate collections throughout the
world, and can be seen locally at Cherrys
Gallery in downtown Carthage, and some giclee
prints at "all things grand!" Jerry is
a member of the board of directors of artCentral
as "advisor" and though he rarely leads
workshops, we are most fortunate to be able to
offer this class in this our anniversary year.
Registration forms with details can be found at
Cherrys Gallery, at the Koka Art Gallery as
well as here at the Hyde House or call for
information, 417 358 4404. Come and join this
class and learn from a master!
