A Midnight Marriage.

Chas. B. Bumgartner, a miner at South Carthage, and Miss Honorah Read, who lives near the mines, were married about midnight last night in the recorder’s office at the court house. They came to Carthage about 11:30 and appealed to Howard Betebenner to help them out. He routed up Recorder J. A. Sigler and while the license was being procured Night Officer Asa Hurst went after Justice T. M. Garland who quickly made them man and wife in the presence of the night police, Howard Betebenner, Recorder Sigler and Chas. Hale. After congratulations, the witnesses celebrated the occasion fittingly at the invitation of Recorder Sigler and Justice Garland.

  Today's Feature

2nd Annual Kids Fishing Day.

The Missouri Department of Conservation is inviting all area kids and their parents to take part in the Second Annual Kids Fishing Day from 8 a.m.-noon on Saturday, June 7th at Kellogg Lake in Carthage, MO. Many activities and events are planned, including several prize giveaways. This event coincides with Missouri’s Free Fishing Days (June 7th & 8th), where anglers of all ages (resident & non-resident) do not need a Missouri fishing permit to fish. So the parents are also encouraged to bring their fishing gear and make a day of it with the youngsters.

A variety of events are planned and the first 200 anglers age 15 and under will receive a Kids Fishing Kit, containing all sorts of goodies. Plus, every young angler that signs up will be eligible for the grand prize that the Carthage Wal-Mart Supercenter is giving away.

The Carthage Police Department, along with the help of McGruff the Crime Dog, will be there to fingerprint the kids. The Carthage Fire Department and several other groups will also assist with the event.

Everyone needs to bring their own fishing pole and tackle.

The workshops began this morning at 8:00 a.m. The participants will be either carving stone or "forging" ahead in their blacksmithing skills until noon on Sunday.

The Membership show started today and will continue through July 11. In this year’s show we have oils, pottery, pastels, watercolors, colored pencil, acrylics, jewelry, stone sculpture, 3-D conceptual art, and photography. I hope I haven’t left anything out. Come by and see for yourself.

In the Member’s Gallery we have the works of Marilyn York of Olathe, KS. She is a Carthage High graduate of ’57. She studied some art in college and has taken workshops throughout the years. This series of paintings was done plein air in Arizona. She did sketches and photos of parks, cities and a ranch as well as traveling twenty miles on dirt roads down into the Grand Canyon. These watercolor paintings were then completed in her studio.

There is a lot going on out here! Come by to take a look or to pick up a registration form for your young artist. The artCamp for kids will be July 21 to Aug. 2.

I suppose kids have a better idea of what things cost these days. They’re out there shoppin’ and seein’ prices they just figure have always been that way.

My idea of an expensive pair of tennis shoes is around twenty-five bucks. That’s about what my folks paid for my Converse All Stars for high school basketball. Ya didn’t wear ‘em out on the street either, just for games and practice on the hardwood.

If I hadn’t been told by a reliable source, I woulda never believed a pair a sunglasses could cost over a hunderd bucks either.

‘Course when I was wearin’ my All Stars, a good concert ticket was around twelve-fifty, and I could drive fifty miles and back to attend for a couple a bucks worth a gas.

This is some fact, but mostly,

Natural Nutrition

By Mari An Willis

I was working with my comfrey plants the other day when I noticed I was in big competition with some bees. It was probably just luck that I did not get stung, but I decided it may be that I consume quite a bit of bee pollen and they just thought I was a friendly BIG bee. Hummm....

Bee pollen is packed with nutrients, including amino acids which are the building blocks for proteins. It also contains bioflavonoids, carotenoids, enzymes, and special fat called lipids, vitamins and minerals. Making this a very concentrated form of food. I have even heard it referred to as "the perfect food".

Bee pollen acts as an antioxidant (Innov Food Sci Emerging Tech 2001) and can be a potent antibiotic. Dermatologist Dr. Lars-Erik Essen, one of the first practioners to use bee products in skin care, found that it helped people with acne. Dr. Essen states: "bee pollen exerts a profound biological effect. It seems to prevent premature aging of the cells and stimulates growth of new skin tissue." Since that time research has confirmed his findings.

In addition to pollen, royal jelly and propolis have valuable properties. Propolis has been used by people for medicinal purposes since antiquity to speed healing. It acts as an antioxidant quelling cell-damaging molecules. It is immune-boosting and has proved successful in speed healing of burns and the sores associated with genital herpes. More studies underway.
