A $20,000 DAMAGE
Case of Theodore L.
Hurst vs the P. & G. Railway on Trial Today.
A damage suit in which the plaintiff
asks $20,000 for injuries received, was begun at noon
today in circuit court. It is still in progress and
likely to last over tomorrow.
The title of the case is Theodore L.
Hurst vs the Kansas City, Pittsburg & Gulf railway.
The plaintiff, who was formerly a freight brakeman for
the road, alleges that at Stillwell, Indian Territory he,
while attempting to board a caboose, tripped over some
stones left beside the track and was thrown to the ground
so violently as to be rendered unconscious. He rolled
under the wheels and his right leg was crushed. He also
received a cut on the head which greatly impairs his
hearing. For all of which he asks $20,000 damages.

realizin I was waitin, the fella
placed the biscuit of some kind he was
eatin in his mouth, turned to me and
waved in a friendly way, put the car in drive

I can only suppose he was
smilin behind that large hunk of bread

his eyes peerin over the top.
I suppose that some might
have been embarrassed in that situation. I
dont think the other driver was in this
case, and I certainly wasnt. It was
merely a pleasant exchange of everday
circumstances. If you happen to get caught
with your mouth over full, just wave big and

ART NOTES from
by Sally Armstrong,
Director of artCentral
As we continue to wind down our
current season of 2011, I am working towards
creating our next seasons calendar, and it
looks to be a good one! We will be offering some
new artists, some groups of painters, and some
old friends on our calendar line-up. I am
currently in the process of securing additional
artists for the season as well, so if you are an
artist and would like to be considered for an
exhibition please let me know. Our members who
make up the plein aire painters group "Day
Trippers" will be exhibiting in the new
season, and we look forward to the new work that
this group, consisting of Kristin Huke, Carthage,
Becky Golubski, Pierce City and Crystal Manning,
Carl Junction, and others, bring to Hyde House
gallery. I am also pleased to welcome back
long-time member and fine painter Donna Roberts
of Joplin, who paints in both watercolor and
oils, and her talented daughter Kelly Moreland,
who does beautiful fiber/mixed media art, in
their second show together for artCentral. We
will look forward to a first showing by
Springfield artist, and new member to artCentral,
Dale Augustson who paints with acrylics in a
contemporary style to one of the exhibition
dates, and look forward to seeing more of this
well known Springfield artists work in our
gallery. Also, there will be an exhibition of
member artist Alice Lynn Greenwoods
interesting portrait paintings, in a unique
style. Alice comes to Carthage from Fayetteville,
Arkansas and is an enthusiastic new member of
artCentral. Additionally, we will offer the
donation of a portion of the personal art
collection of our most valued Wendy Christensen,
to be displayed and purchased by viewers in a
memorial sale of these works, and possibly
another auction of personal works from various
members collections, so stay tuned for
these developments in the upcoming year, 2012. It
will prove to be an interesting season I am sure!
