A man walks into a lawyers office and asks
how much the barristers rates are. The lawyer says
fifty dollars for three questions.
The man asks, "Isnt that
"Yes," the lawyer replies,
"whats your third question?"
Psychiatrist to patient:
"Weve made great strides in your case Mr.
Blumberg. Originally it was thought that phobias such as
this were a result of a chemical imbalance in the brain.
Now weve progressed to the point where we
dont know what causes it."

Water Co. Docked for
The chief engineer reports that the
water pressure of the fire hydrants at the corner of
Macon and James streets; at Grand and Centennial avenues;
on Main street near the college; at the corner of
Garrison avenue and Clevenger street, and at the corner
of McGregor and High streets, is so low that in case of
fire said hydrants would be practically useless. The
pressure could be made good by cutting off the stand
during time of fire and pumping direct into the mains. It
is the understanding that the water company will provide
means to cut off the standpipe when necessary.
It is doubly sure that they will do
something, as the council last night refused to pay the
bill for these hydrants for the past six months and
reduced the water bill $62.50 on that account.
The Water Co. was ordered to place a
fire hydrant at the corner of Oak and Case
streets.running out of St. Louis.

states Cheryle Finley, co-chair of the 2010 Maple
Leaf Festival Committee.
One a the hardest things ta
get across to a new swimmer is that if ya
relax, most folks will float.
The trick is to get a good
amount of air in the lungs and just relax.
The feet go down and the head will tilt
forward into the water. If ya just relax and
be still, youll float till ya need ta
take another breath. To do this you just
raise your head and give a little kick to
raise ya up a bit. That gives ya time to take
another gulp of air and resume the relax
This survival technique is
simple and nearly always works.
Most of us find it hard to
take a minute and get a deep breath to relax.
Im sure it was this concern that
prompted the clerk over the weekend to
politely ask me to go jump in the lake.
This is some fact, but

NOTES from Hyde House
Armstrong, Director of artCentral
The first annual artShow
presenting student work done by the current 2010
enrollment of artCamp was a great success! Sunday
afternoon we were open from 2:00-5:00 and quite a
large number of parents and families came through
to view the various samples of the students
work thus far, as camp was only half completed. I
want to thank you all for your interest in the
show, and we will consider making this an annual
event. As new students continue to enjoy the
classes presented this week, I am working on the
quarterly newsletter, and we have quite a full
schedule yet to be accomplished this year! On the
front burner is an exciting donation that we are
to receive in early August, that being the gift
of one of Rachel Wilsons full sized
found-wood horses. We will install her horse in
the newly enlarged circular flower bed in the
center of our grounds. You may have seen the
article last weekend in the GLOBE about Rachel
and her horses, which have been on display this
summer in Branson on the grounds of the
"Titanic" attraction. I am very
appreciative of Rachel and this most anticipated
addition to the property here at Hyde House, and
hope it will continue to delight visitors for
years to come. We will have a formal presentation
later in the fall. Today the kids are weaving
jute and wooden beads into jewelry in one class
and making "Dale Chilhuly type" glass
hanging sculptures from clear soda bottles in
another. One mother has suggested a
"Moms artCamp" next year, and I
do like the idea! Many of our Moms have expressed
the desire to participate in some of the classes
when they pick their kids up and witness what has
been going on, and it does look like a lot fun in
most cases! Check out our display of student art
soon at our Atrium Gallery in Sirloin Stockade to
see the budding artists that we have in our area.
