What are they, dad?
Honesty and sagacity.
Always - no matter what happens
or how adversely it may affect you - always keep
your word once you have given it.
Never give it.

Lost a Valuable Horse.
G.W. Fosdick is mourning
the loss of a valuable horse-the pet of the family. He
found her this morning with one foot fast in the manger
with evidences that she had made heroic efforts to free
herself. On being released she died in five minutes,
being completely exhausted.
Scalded at the Quarry.
G.W. Bennett, a quarryman
for the Center Creek Stone, Co., was severely scalded
with hot steam while at work in the quarry Monday. He was
working with a portable steam drill and was handling the
rubber steam pipe when the wire wrapping caught in his
shirt and caused the hose to break.
His left shoulder and arm
received the full force of the scalding steam. Bennett
came to town on the electric car and had his injuries
dressed by Dr. Post. He is now recovering nicely.

Monday will be the
official end of the fifteenth year of publication
of the Mornin Mail. For those who
dont want ta figure, we put the first Mail
on the street on June 18, 1992. That comes out to
about 3,600 issues, and near that many Jake
Columns. Looks like even Jake should observe a
day of silence ever now and then.
Course the whole
operation is entirely dependent on the
cooperation of our readership and our loyal
sponsors. Sponsors put up the cash, and the
readers have to support the sponsors by
walkin in the door. Next time you pick up a
Mornin Mail, be sure to acknowledge your
appreciation for those who allow the Mail to
occupy valuable counter space. Let those who
advertise know you appreciate their contribution.
Tell em ya saw it in the Mornin Mail.

ART NOTES FROM HYDE HOUSE
By Sally Armstrong, Director of artCentral
No one who has seen the
exhibition of art currently being shown here in
Carthage at the Hyde House Galleries can say we
dont have variety! Ninety pieces of various
media are presented side by side representing
forty artists from three states. There are
sculptures in marble and alabaster, fiber, metal,
and wood, framed photography, oils, acrylics,
watercolors and watermedia on our walls, textiles
and weaving, jewelry and ceramics on pedestals
and platforms. All ages and genders, old members
and new. Something truly for everyone!
Seven artists we are seeing for
the first time. These include ChaTullis of
Hominy, Oklahoma and his paintings of horses,
Melody Knowles of Carthage has three very
different entries in ceramic sculpture and mixed
media, Frank Young of Joplin and two oils of city
and harbor scenes, Kathleen Day of Nevada and
three very different entries, one a metal
sculpture, Betsy Cooper of Joplin with intaglio
prints and a watercolor, Janice Kinman of
Carthage with a pencil sketch and a watercolor,
and Kelly Moreland of Joplin and 2 framed
textiles. Welcome to these new artist-members of
artCentral and their work! If you have not yet
had a chance to see this wonderful exhibition we
hope you will do so before it closes at the end
of the day Sunday the 17th of June. Artists may
pick up their work anytime after that day during
regular hours or by appointment. And speaking of
new artists to our area, the paintings for the
next exhibition are already here and we are very
pleased and excited to show for the first time in
Missouri the work of a Wisconsin artist, Cathy
Martin. Her oil paintings are done on masonite
board, reflect rural themes and nature, and are
elegant and realistic pieces that should be most
appealing to all. I invite you to plan to come to
this next showing we have scheduled for July 13-
August 5th here at our gallery, and additionally
see a second exhibit of Cathys daughter
Lindseys photo-realistic paintings in the
Member Gallery. Both of these shows should be
