In a recent Round-table Discussion Group the question was asked of the Ministerial Panel, at what point does life begin.

The Catholic Priest spoke first and said "At conception, of course!"

The Presbyterian Minister said "No, no, it’s certainly begins at birth."

The United Minister tried to buffer the obvious argument point and suggested "Perhaps you’re both wrong, and it’s a compromise in that the fetus is not functional with a heartbeat until the third month".

They had to prod the Jewish Rabbi for his answer, and he finally leaned forward to his mike and spoke softly "All of my friends here are wrong. Life begins when the last child leaves home and the dog they left behind dies!"

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

Prof. L.E. Robinson Married.

Cards have been received by friends in this city announcing the marriage of Prof. Luther E. Robinson and Miss Anna E. Dysart at Springfield. Prof. Robinson is president of the Normal and Fitting School of this city and Miss Dysart was one of the teachers last year. The announcement of the wedding is somewhat of a surprise, but their friends join in extending congratulations and best wishes.

Results Still in Doubt.

The Oronogo saloon petition again occupied the time of the county court all day today. This time it is J. R. McLaughlin, who wants the license, and it is given out that he has 76 names where 82 are required. The case will probably not be settled today. There were the usual delegations for and against the petition and they, with the attorneys, made things lively in the courtroom all day. Del Beeson represents McLaughlin and Harry Green the remonstrators.

The old sayin’ that if its worth doin’, it’s worth doin’ right is absolutely right. The rub comes in the interpretation of the key word "right."

To bring this into proper perspective, consider the "right" way to plant a garden. Don’t know of two people who do it ‘xactly the same. Even the "experts" (another ambiguous term in any circumstance) can’t agree most of the time.

‘Course most of the time doin’ it right means doin’ it the way who ever is complainin’ about the way you do it thinks it should be done. This usually has little to do with the how it would actually get done if the complainer was in your shoes.

I suppose ever’one has the right to complain ever now and then, just as you have the right to completely ignore ‘em.

This is some fact, but mostly,

ART NOTES from Hyde House

by Sally Armstrong, Director of artCentral

Of all the exhibitions we hold here at Hyde House, I think the most popular is the Annual Membership Show, which is our next official event. On Friday, June 24th, we will again host an outside picnic supper on opening night for members and guests, and this is always a fun time to see and visit with our artist members and their families, but anyone who is reading this is invited to attend! We will be providing the meat and barbequed beans and deviled eggs, using Clouds as our "cook", and will ask our members to bring a dessert or salad as their contribution. This year, we are asking our adults to contribute a small $5.00 donation towards the cost of the caterer, but children under 12 will be free. The invitations to our members will go out a bit earlier than usual, as I want to remind our artist members of the days to bring in their art. I will be accepting member’s art on Sunday June 12, and Monday June 13, both days noon to 5:00pm, and all art must come in during these days unless otherwise arranged with me prior. Our underwriter again this year is our own McCune-Brooks Regional Hospital and we thank them for this courtesy at this a busy time for them! Beth Simmons will again be choosing the winner of the Underwriter’s Award, and three other awards will be presented by artCentral. Our judge this year is Laura Lowry- Greene of Columbus, Kansas. Laura and her husband Mel are the owners and operators of the "Maple Un-Common Hotel & Gallery" in downtown Columbus. Our Membership Show will remain in both galleries weekends noon to 5:00 through July 10th. I hope you will consider attending, rain or shine! We will have tents pitched against the rain or sun, maybe some bluegrass music, delicious food and drink, and alot of good art to view--- something for everyone. Come out and be with us on the 24th!
