The clerk says, "We have three for sale.
The red one speaks three languages and costs fifteen
hundred dollars. The yellow one knows five languages and
costs three thousand. The blue one over there costs ten
thousand, but doesnt speak at all."
"Ten thousand? Why so much?"
"Well, we dont know what he
does, but the other two call him Boss."
Hyde-"Were you lucky at the races
Wyde-"I should just think I was! I
found a quarter after the last race so I didnt have
to walk home."
Thursday I lost a gold watch which I
valued very highly. Immediately I inserted an ad in your
lost-and-found column and waited. Yesterday I went home
and found the watch in the pocket of another suit. God
bless your paper!
Do you take this man to be your wedded
husband, for better or for worse?
Just as he is, Parson. If he gets any
better the good Lord will take him, if he gets any worse,
why, Ill tend to him myself.

Transpired in the City and County since our last Issue.
A Cooking Club
The T.H.S. cooking club held a
reception yesterday evening, that will be long remembered
by those so fortunate as to be present. The club is
composed of a number of young ladies, who meet every week
to study and demonstrate the art of cooking, a fine
dinner being the result each week. Last night they
concluded to invite in their gentlemen friends and let
them share in the good things.
On arrival their astonishment may be
imagined at being adorned with big gingham aprons and
invited to step into the kitchen and prepare the feast.
Sues His Former Wife.
As an aftermath of the Snyder divorce
suit, A.H. Snyder today brought suit in circuit court

I still have some
reservations about makin kid medicine
taste good. Course in my mind, I still
figure it doesnt taste near as good as
the commercials would leave ya to believe.
Ive had occasion to taste some a those
protein drinks that are supposed to be so
great, they dont taste so good to me.
It gets down to I just
dont trust any medicine that
doesnt make ya cringe a little. Ya put
somethin on a cut, ya want it to sting
a little so ya know its workin.
I also dont care for
the flavored versions of the
plop-plop-fizz-fizz remedies. Theyve
tried a lemon and a cherry flavor, I
dont like either. At least when ya swig
down a dose of the original, that sweet taste
doesnt hang around in your mouth for a
couple a hours.
This is some fact, but

ART NOTES from
Big week ahead, and as you read
this we are in the middle of it! Maple Leaf
Festival is upon us. I appreciated those who
attended our opening for artist Raymond Popp this
past Friday night, when six originals and two
prints were sold! Since that night, we have had
good attendance and sold an additional print.
Many of Raymonds paintings depict the
beautiful fall colors, his favorite season he
told me. We will be open Maple Leaf weekend with
an abbreviated schedule of Friday and Sunday
only, noon to 5:00 Friday and 1:00 to 5:00
Sunday. Be sure to also attend the third annual
Historic Downtown Art Walk as one of your Maple
Leaf activities. The walk will begin Friday
evening downtown in a number of venues,
6:00-8:30pm, and a reception for the artists will
be held at 8:30 at Koka Gallery with volunteers
and artists invited. Then beginning at 10:00
Saturday morning the walk resumes, continuing
until 3:00 pm. The walk is sponsored by UMB, and
artCentral will have a table set up in the UMB
lobby promoting our activities and current show,
so stop by and sign your child up for the
upcoming kids candy house building class in
November! Sadly, by the time this prints you will
have already missed a wonderful opportunity to
view some beautiful art and possibly buy some
very reasonably. Tuesday October 11th a number of
plein air artists gathered at the Historic Phelps
House for the second annual Plein Air Paint Out
sponsored by Cherrys Gallery & Frame
Perhaps you saw some of these
artists out in the neighborhoods or downtown with
their easels, painting the scenes of our city?
Each of these artists displayed three of their
works done this week in an exhibition that was
judged Wednesday night at the Phelps House, and
following that judging, an auction took place,
selling many of those works. Remaining paintings
may be seen at Cherrys Gallery in the
future. I will report those winners next week,
and meantime, happy "Maple Leafing" to
