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 doesn’t speak at all."

"Ten thousand? Why so much?"

"Well, we don’t know what he does, but the other two call him ‘Boss.’"


Hyde-"Were you lucky at the races yesterday?"

Wyde-"I should just think I was! I found a quarter after the last race so I didn’t 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, I’ll tend to him myself.


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

A Cooking Club Reception.

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 against Etta M. Snyder, his former wife, to recover possession of personal property in the shape of household goods which he estimates at $1,500 in value. He claims all but the piano.

I still have some reservations about makin’ kid medicine taste good. ‘Course in my mind, I still figure it doesn’t taste near as good as the commercials would leave ya to believe. I’ve had occasion to taste some a those protein drinks that are supposed to be so great, they don’t taste so good to me.

It gets down to I just don’t trust any medicine that doesn’t make ya cringe a little. Ya put somethin’ on a cut, ya want it to sting a little so ya know it’s workin’.

I also don’t care for the flavored versions of the plop-plop-fizz-fizz remedies. They’ve tried a lemon and a cherry flavor, I don’t like either. At least when ya swig down a dose of the original, that sweet taste doesn’t hang around in your mouth for a couple a hours.

This is some fact, but mostly,

Just Jake Talkin’.

ART NOTES from Hyde House

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 Raymond’s 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 kid’s 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 Cherry’s Gallery & Frame Shop.

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 Cherry’s Gallery in the future. I will report those winners next week, and meantime, happy "Maple Leafing" to you all!
