Little Brother (to sisters boyfriend): I

Boyfriend: No, dont do that.
Heres the nickel.
Little Brother: Thanks. That makes a
buck and a quarter Ive made this month.
Doctor: Nurse, how is that little boy
who swallowed a quarter yesterday?
Nurse: No change yet.
What were all your chickens doing out
in front of your house?
They heard some men were going to lay a
sidewalk and they wanted to see how it was done.
Mammals are classified thus: man and
lower animals. Of course, man does the classifying.
Why dont you get out and find a
job? When I was your age I was working for $3 a week in a
store and at the end of five years I owned the store.
You cant do that nowadays. They
have cash registers.

WHO OWNS THE ORE?
A load of jack being hauled in from the
Hayseed mines yesterday evening was the subject of an
exciting controversy as to its ownership. It was being
hauled in by the Lanyon Zinc company for shipment to the
smelters in Kansas.
The jack had been attached by Constable
Koontz several days before on a claim of Orchard &
Keltner for coal and as soon as Constable Koontz learned
it was being removed he took possession of it and had it
dumped in his backyard.
The Lanyons claim that they bought the
ore and paid for it before it was attached and they at
once got out replevin papers in Webb City, after which
they again loaded the ore in the wagon from which it had
been removed and it was soon placed on a car for shipment
to the smelters.
The question of rights in the matter
will now be settled in court.

The main problem with the
cruise control bein available on cars
today is that folks, includin myself,
dont want to disengage it once
its turned on.
I dont know
bout everone else, but the odds
seem to be high that I will be movin up
on a slow movin car at precisely the
same time a car will occupy the left lane
next of me.
In a hunderd mile trip, I
can expect for this to happen at least once,
more likely two or three times. I suppose I
could alter the odds by drivin a little
slower or a little faster, but I cruise at a
comfortable speed. Just fast enough so as ta
not get a ticket I suppose. Ive heard
the comment that Im a half-fast driver.

We at artCentral are pleased to
offer as our next exhibition the paintings of
artist Raymond Popp, Mountain Grove, MO. This
show will begin on October 7th, with our
artists reception at 6:00 at Hyde House
Gallery, and if you have never attended an
opening we invite you that Friday evening to
enjoy refreshments with us and meet this talented
artist. We are located at 1110 E. 13th, just up
the hill to the east of the football field on
13th. This exhibition will be then open Fridays
and weekends, noon to 5:00, through the 23rd. I
explained in last weeks article that
Raymond Popp is a regular contributor to the
Midwest Gathering of the artists, and has been
invited to present there for the 13 years that he
has lived in Missouri. His medium originally was
oil, but working with acrylic paints for the last
several years has dramatically changed the style
of his work. Acrylics have the immediacy of
watercolor and the forgiveness of oils. He can
paint very quickly with the acrylics in thin,
fast washes or use the paints more thickly in
opaque applications to change compositions or to
cover up unwanted colors. They allow a free
expression directly onto the paper because
acrylics dry almost immediately. A rapid layering
of many colors can be quickly accomplished
without the muddying common with oils. The viewer
is free to complete the painting by interpreting
the layers of colors and random strokes of paint
according to his own perception. Popp learned the
basics of art studying with California artist
James Beal, and nature became his primary subject
matter, both the landscape and wildlife of the
region. Moving to Missouri, he currently lives on
40 acres in the rural area of Mountain Grove.
Raymond has taught painting at Grace & Glory
Bible College in Mountain Grove and worked under
contract with Century Marketing, Batesville, AR
which marketed prints of his paintings with sales
in excess of 100,000 units nationally. We thank
Beimdiek Insurance for the generous underwriting
of this exhibition.
