Baseball: This is a game played by two teams,
one out the other in. The one thats in, sends
players out one at a time, to see if they can get in
before they get out. If they get out before they get in,
they come in, but it doesnt count. If they get in
before they get out it does count.
When the ones out get three outs from
the ones in before they get in without being out, the
team thats out comes in and the team in goes out to
get those going in out before they get in without being
When both teams have been in and out
nine times the game is over. The team with the most in
without being out before coming in wins.

Transpired in the City and County since our last Issue.
A Young Man to Build a
Louis C. Stiffler, the affable salesman
at Ramsay Bros. dry goods store, purchased
yesterday of Harvey L. Slauson a lot on Olive street for
$300. Mr. Stiffler has let a contract to S. Bistline for
erecting a neat six-room cottage on the lot, to be
finished with six weeks or two months.
Mr. Stiffler says he is building it
"for rent." The property lies next west of
where Hale Boggess lives.
Mr. Joseph Bragonia, of Rappahan-nock
county, Virginia and H.F. Seesholtz, of Pittsburg, Pa.,
friends and acquaintances of W. Crow, came in yesterday
over the Frisco from the east. They are looking over the
mining lands of Southwest Missouri with a view of
probable investment. They have rooms engaged at the Gem
33rd Gathering Begins.
The thirty-third Midwest
Gathering of the Artist is scheduled to open in
Memoial Hall this morning at 8 oclock.
The show was founded
thrity-three years ago by Bob Tommey, Lowell
Davis, and Danny Hensley.
"When this all began they
told us that we couldnt sell a painting for
$4 let alone one for $400," says Bob Tommey.
But weve had gross sales of over $95,000.
"But the show is really
for the artist. We have 150 people that want to
participate but we only have room for around
forty. So we have to pick and choose. We like a
combination of what sells and whats
different. We have to keep in mind that we
dont want to get too big for our
The artist donate a piece of
their work as an entry fee for the show to be
sold at the auction. What ever it sells for, the
artist gets 60% and 40% goes for prizes and
"The show is for the
artist," Tommey emphasizes again. "We
like to keep them happy and keep them coming
The free art show is today
until 10 p.m. and tomorrow from 8 a.m. to noon.
The hall will reopen at 6 p.m. for the auction.
It should come as little
surprise that some of the sewer lines in the
downtown area are needin some
attention. A good portion of em
probly were put in around the time the
Courthouse was built. Most likely some of the
first indoor plumbin in Carthage.
Course there are
those that speculate that some folks just
poked a hole in the top of the underground
cavern weve heard so much about and
dumped sewage into that.
amazin is the fact that those original
underground pipes are still usable at all. A
friend a mine was found a sayin
"in a hunderd years, nobody will no the
difference anyway." Guess he wasnt
around when they planted the Carthage sewer
This is some fact, but

NOTES from Hyde House
Armstrong, Director of artCentral
Fall seems to be in full swing,
and so will artCentral be when we open our new
exhibition on the 24th of this month! Invitations
will go out next week, but let me tell you a bit
about this all new photography show to be
presented September 24th to October 10th entitled
"GRAFFITI". The artist is Linda Teeter
of Joplin, and if you follow art news you know
that she is the force behind the beginning of the
Joplin monthly artwalks over there on the third
Thursdays of each month downtown. A number of
artCentral and Carthage artists participate in
that monthly, and it has been a huge boost to
both the local art scene as well as to the
downtown Joplin visibility, and for that they are
grateful to Linda! In this current body of work,
Linda presents to the viewer a group of unique
photographs taken in a number of different cities
that she has visited, with one subject in
common--- graffiti! This urban art form is seen
in cities and towns large and small, in railway
yards, along interstate highways and on bridges,
anywhere there is a person wanting to express
himself through what many would consider
vandalism, but others are recognizing as its own
art form. In some of our major cities,
individuals have emerged as recognized
contemporary painters who began with this format.
Be that as it may, whether or not you might agree
that graffiti is a form of "art", it is
common in the landscapes of the international
arena and has been documented here by Teeter in a
series of most interesting photographs in this
offering. Her process includes digital
enhancement of what begins as a "good
bones" photograph through a computer process
called photo impressions. She sometimes
manipulates the image until she gets the look she
seeks to interpret her feelings of the subject.
She began not as a photographer but as a trained
artist in the medias of paint, charcoal and
pencil. She has recently been using photography
as her new medium in the described process. You
may remember this artists work in two prior
exhibitions here, the last being GALACTIC WARS in
2008 and a prior one in our Member Gallery in
2007. Our thanks go out once more to Beimdiek
Insurors for agreeing to underwrite this
exhibition. On another note, a correction from
last week. I wrote of a special artist event the
Cherrys Gallery & Frame is holding, and
said it was prior to the MGA, which would be this
week. It is in fact an "Artists
Paint-Out" scheduled for Maple Leaf week,
October 14-15, and informational forms are
available to artists at Cherrys or online
if you contact her. Sorry for the confusion. More
on our new show next week!
