Dishonesty Did Not Pay.
The other day at Galena,
J.W. Burns, who had come in from the strip, traded a
couple of horses to a Galena man for a buggy, horse and
$5. The Galena man could only pay $1 down and Burns was
given one of the horses for security. The Galena man
learned that Burns had skipped out with the horse. He
traced him as far as Webb city, where a warrant was
procured and with Constable Oxendine came on to Carthage.
Marshal Stafford joined them and on the road leading to
McDaniels mill they overtook Burns and placed him
under arrest. He surrendered the horse, and the $4 due
him was required to pay the costs in the case. Burns
dishonesty cost him most of the boot money but he was

Oak Street Health & Herbs
By Mari An Willis
Dry underarms are a challenge
in this hot weather so why try? Perspiration is a
natural occurrence and a very necessary one. The
skin has been called the third kidney and our
underarms are obviously a very active disposal
site. We seem to be obsessed with keeping them
dry causing the usage of large amounts of
deodorants. The active ingredient in most
deodorants is aluminum chlorhydrate (or similar
compound). These clog the pores to stop the
release of fluid. As the plug disintegrates we
absorb the chemical. Since aluminum chlorhydrate
has been listed as a dangerous substance when
handling, why put it on our skin to stop a
In Dr. Julian Whitakers
Health & Healing newsletter, he explains that
there is an alternative. We call it the deodorant
stone. It contains potassium of ammonium alum
which is soluble in water, but is not toxic nor
absorbable through the skin. It acts on the
surface of the skin to kill bacteria and the
odors they produce. Dr. Whitaker states
"even though I am a firm believer in
deodorants, I have never been able to find one
that prevents day-long odor collection in my
clothes. Now I not only put on fresh smelling
shirts, but I take them off as well... I use the
rock deodorant on my feet and my kids feet
to avoid that somewhat less than pleasant
experience of taking off leather or canvas shoes
after a long day."
Another nice thing about the
stone is that with careful handling it will
usually last about a year, what a bargain! From
experience though, if you drop it on a hard
surface, it will shatter and the edges are very
sharp! They can be rounded out under water.
Art Notes from Hyde House
By Sally Armstrong, Director of artCentral
Thanks to all for making last
weekend a great opening for the new exhibition of
paintings here at the Hyde House. Several were
present for the Opening Night reception that had
never been here before, and thats always
wonderful to hear! Our visiting artist, Cathy
Martin, arrived at 6:00 pm with her husband
Charlie and another Wisconsin couple, and they
traveled all day to be with us for the evening.
That was a journey of love! We appreciate the
time they took and enjoyed meeting them,
especially the artist, who enjoyed meeting our
members and guests. Her daughter Lindsey has a
nice display of her work as well in the Member
Gallery, including a painting of the COKE mural
on the bike shop wall on Garrison St. here in
Carthage, a familiar sight. The beautiful bouquet
of sunflowers and green wheat in a galvanized
bucket, designed by Justin Thomas and THE
WILDFLOWER, set the perfect rural tone and the
tables were draped in yellow bandana tablecloths.
A nice crowd gathered to view the beautiful oil
paintings, and one man was overheard to say they
were the most beautiful use of oil paint he had
ever seen! Saturday we continued to welcome
additional visitors, and Sunday, again, people
came. This beautiful show will be open again this
weekend and all the next and following weekend
during the artCamp hours as well, so I hope if
you have not yet come by, you will soon. This
show is too good to miss!
Childrens artCamp begins
Monday morning July 23rd at 10:00 and we look
forward to the arrival of the members of the
first class, POTTERY STORY VESSELS. Students in
this class are asked to bring along a favorite
story book or story idea to use as inspiration in
the design of their vessel, which will be hand
formed from clay. These classes continue all that
week and the next, and places are still available
if your child desires to attend. Call 417 358
4404 for information.
