today's laugh

Two elderly women were fussing about their husbands over tea one day.

"I do wish my Leroy would stop biting his nails. That makes me terribly nervous!" the first one said.

"Oh, my Elmer used to do the same thing," the other woman commented. "But I broke him of that habit real quick."

"What did you do?"

"I hid his teeth!"


"The Law of Volunteering"

If you dance with a grizzly bear, you had better let him lead.


"The Law of Self Sacrifice"

When you starve with a tiger, the tiger starves last.


"Law of Probable Dispersal"

Whatever hits the fan will not be evenly distributed.


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

I. D. Davis, a Farmer North of Town Severely Injured.

I. D. Davis a farmer who lives on the Chas. Myers place three miles north of Carthage, was kicked by a horse yesterday and his leg broken above the knee. Mr. Davis was engaged in feeding the stock in his barn and was passing behind the horse when he was kicked. He slapped the horse lightly on the hip and spoke to him at the same time but the animal probably mistaking him for another horse kicked with the above result. Dr. F. W. Flower was called and reduced the fracture. Mr. Davis is well along in years and the hurt will probably cause him a great deal of trouble.

Chas. Huth and Wesley Bruffett will leave tomorrow morning over the Frisco for California where they expect to locate.

ART NOTES from Hyde House

by Sally Armstrong, Director of artCentra

Mailings have gone out this past week for our annual children’s artCamp, to both our past students as well as our membership. If you are interested in camp for a child, the dates are July 19-31 this year, meeting daily from 10:00-3:00. Additionally this year, a children’s art show will be shown on Sunday the 25th, featuring work by the enrolled students. We will be offering 29 classes again this year, so get those replies back to me as soon as possible so we can see the classes fill and I can purchase supplies for those that do. Last year we had a few classes that were cancelled due to non- enrollment, yet folks called at the last minute wanting a cancelled class! I must know at least two weeks out which classes have adequate enrollment, generally at least 6 students, in order not to disappoint those who sign up on time. I am very pleased with the assortment of classes offered and please know that you may pick up information sheets and enrollment cards at the children’s library and also at the adult information desk in Carthage, or here on our own porch, in the swing will be a basket of these. Call if you would like one mailed to you, 417 358 4404. Mailings are also out to our member-artists, asking for their work for the annual Membership Show, opening June 25th, our next exhibition. This is accompanied by the annual outdoor picnic where we supply the main dishes and guests supply the desserts! All are invited to attend for a small donation. We enjoyed a good crowd last Friday evening at the opening of the current exhibition, TEXTURE, sculpture, pottery, weaving and tapestry by the Jack Sours family. This show will continue this weekend and the following, during regular gallery hours, Friday- Sunday, 12:00-5:00. Come out if you have not already seen this nice work, and enjoy the Sours’ bluegrass music at the annual Acoustic Festival scheduled for the Carthage square June 12th all day and evening. This is a great event!
