Perkinson - "Did you hear about Willard Elkins, the bank cashier, stealing fifty thousand and running away with his best friend’s wife?"

Simpson - "Good heavens! Who’ll teach his Sunday-school class tomorrow?"


The cashier of the small town bank had once been the local judge.

"Your check is all right, sir," he said one day to a stranger, "but you haven’t offered sufficient proof of your identity, so I don’t see my way clear to cashing it."

Evidently the stranger knew who the cashier was, for he retorted, "I’ve known you to hang a man on less evidence, judge."

"That’s possible," was the answer, "but when it comes to letting go of hard cash, we have to be very careful."

J. J. Abell of Nevada Buys an Interest - Retail Department to beCclosed Out.

S. B. Griswold is to retire from the retail grocery business. A deal was closed last night, whereby Mr. James J. Abell of Nevada purchased a half interest in the business. The new firm will close out their retail business as rapidly as possible and hope to do so this week. They will then devote their time exclusively to their jobbing trade.

Mr. Griswold has been in the grocery business in Carthage for twenty years and has built up a large wholesale, as well as retail trade. He will still remain at the head of the business, the firm name being the Griswold-ABell Grocer Co.

The new firm will be incorporated with a capital stock of $40,000, and it is probable that they will build a large brick warehouse in the Frisco bottoms to store heavy goods, though they will still retain an uptown store.

The reorganization of the new firm has not yet been completed, but they will conduct a general jobbing business and will employ several traveling salesmen.

Mr. Abell, the new member of the firm is an experienced grocer, having been for a ling time with the Ridenour Baker Grocery Co. of Kansas City. He has however, more recently been in the clothing business in Nevada and Sedalia.

  Today's Feature

Internet Predator Suspect Arrested.

Charles Edward Doennig, 34, of Carterville, Missouri was arrested Wednesday in Carthage after he made arrangements online to meet a young girl for a sexual encounter. Agents of the Southwest Missouri Cyber Crimes Task Force participated in the surveillance and arrest.

Jasper County Sheriff’s Detective Ed Bailey, a Task Force Agent, began the investigation of Doennig in 2009 after receiving information from a St. Louis officer that Doennig might be making sexual contact with children over the Internet. The investigation culminated when Doennig made arrangements to meet a young girl at a local store parking lot. Doennig was taken into custody when he arrived at the designated site.

A search of Doennig’s residence in Carterville following the arrest lead to the seizure of a computer and several other electronic devices which will be examined for evidence at the Southwest Missouri Cyber Crimes lab in Joplin.

A warrant was issued for one count of enticement of a child and a bond set at $5,000.00 by a Jasper County Judge.

Total Including Placed out of County

Just Jake Talkin'

Ever’ now and then I get the urge ta go campin.’ It usually passes fairly quickly, but ever’ couple a three years it seems ta be a good idea. It is always amazin’ to see a campsite develop outa some wooded area into a comfortable setting. After the initial choosin’ of the site, the two most critical placement decisions are the campfire and the latrine (or more likely nowadays, the portapotty). From there the "camp" pretty much is a matter of preference. (Naturally most try to be up wind of both.)

‘Course a large portion of time is spent around the campfire, mainly preparin’ and cookin’ meals. The activity also allows a good excuse for a nice nap afterward before ya start gatherin’ firewood for the next meal. Campin’ can be really relaxin’, as long as ya don’t forget ta pack the air mattress and the toilet paper.

This is some fact, but mostly,

Just Jake Talkin’.

ART NOTES from Hyde House

by Sally Armstrong, Director of artCentral

The most asked question I receive is "do you do classes for adults at the Hyde House?"

Our membership is made up of 244 individuals/families, about half of which contain a declared "artist". This can be on any level, of course, as we have professional artists in our membership as well as amateurs, hobby artists, and students. In the past, we have held some very successful weekend workshops in the medias of colored pencil, pastels, oil and watercolor painting. Usually these workshops last two days and are led by a member artist who is contacted by us to do this. The teacher determines the tuition charge. They are open to members and non-members alike, although members receive a discount in the tuition cost. Currently, I do not have any classes scheduled, but a number of adult women are interested in learning to throw (create) pottery on the pottery wheel, and I would be glad to organize a class if I have enough interest. This would include instruction of prepping the clay, wheel instruction, and instruction on using the kiln and various glazing processes. I would first need to secure the instructor, and we do have several ceramics artists who I think would be willing. Second, I would need to determine the best time slot, day or night, weekends or weekdays. Does the class desire several days in a row, or the same day several weeks in a row. To properly learn pottery throwing, you must be consistent in practice, so it would be important to choose days that everybody is able to come. If you are interested in this type of class, or another class, please call our number and leave me a message as to your desires, with your contact information—phone number and email address if you have one. I will be glad to attempt to make this happen. I had hoped to hold a painting class before Christmas as well, and would be interested in knowing who might be interested in beginning/basic oil painting. Our number is 417 358 4404, so let me know how we can best serve you in this way.
