Paw Paws Poisoned Him.
Walter Wheatley has
learned by dear experience that while paw paws may be
palatable fruit to some people they are poison to him.
Several years ago he ate some which affected him as
though he had taken poison, but hardly believing that
they would prove disastrous a second time, he again ate
some a few days ago, but he will not try it again. He was
severely poisoned and his face is still badly swollen. It
is said that paw paws act as deadly poison upon a few
people, affecting them even more severely than they do

Seems like most young comedians like ta use shock
value to get folks to laugh. Folks laugh, but a
lotta times its more out of embarrassment
folks dont need ta be shocked. Theyve
got a subtle sense of humor that takes a little
experience to appreciate.
When I was a youngster, I used
ta be amazed sometimes at how funny folks older
than myself could be from time to time. Seemed
that I always had the idea that anyones
parents were supposed ta be serious all the time.
Just sit around and talk about the weather, worry
bout the state of the world and that sort
of thing. Seems that most folks that have made it
to a mature age have made it cause they had
a good sense a humor. More folks need ta step
back and see the humor in situations that tend ta
get us down.
This is some fact, but mostly,

Oak Street Health & Herbs
By Mari An Willis
Uncaria Tomentosa is the
botanical name for an old herb which is being
studied in Australia, England and France, Germany
and Austria for the treatment of many immune
deficiency related diseases.
Cats Claw, the common
name, according to Dr. B.W. Davis, who has been
using this herb for a number of years says
"it has a remarkable cleanse the entire
intestinal tract and help patients suffering from
many different stomach and bowel disorders
including: Crohns disease, Diverticulitis,
leaky bowel syndrome, colitis, hemorrhoids,
fistulas, gastritis, ulcers and parasites and
intestinal flora imbalance."
Cats Claw is used in a
similar way as Echinacea, Pau darco, Golden
Seal, Astragalus and Siberian Ginseng.
In Dr. Richard Gerber,
M.D.s book Vibrational Healing Cats
Claw is mentioned as "a unique herbal remedy
that has been used for many years by native
healers of Peru." He further states,
"the herb shows great promise for the
treatment of Arthritis when taken internally,

Art Notes from Hyde House
By Sally Armstrong, Director of artCentral
As we continue with our very
successful exhibition by Joplin artist/
photographer Bill Perry and his delightful sister
Rebecca from Webb City with her unique pieces and
jewelry, we look to the last weekend of that
show, and on to the next. We have coming in
October a wonderful group of watercolors by
artist Marilyn York of Olathe, Kansas. Marilyn
was first place winner in the Member Show this
past spring with her unique painting of two old
fellows in the coffee shop, newspapers and
crossword puzzles on their table, entitled "
39 DOWN". Along with Marilyns work we
will feature photography of scenic places by
Joplin photographer Linda Teeter, in the Member
Gallery. We look forward to seeing the work of
both of these fine women artists.
Meantime, we are enjoying some
special things here at the gallery, including an
oil painting class being led by Barbara Courtney
of Eucha, Oklahoma on Mondays. Barbaras
group is small, but they hope to continue to meet
on Mondays from 10:00 into the latter afternoons.
Barbaras oil painting in the recent Member
Show won the first annual Underwriters
Award, chosen this year by McCune Brooks
Hospital, and Barbara had a wonderful Main
Gallery show with us last December, if you
remember. Secondly, we just welcomed 20
enthusiastic women into the gallery yesterday for
the "Attic Road-Show" luncheon,
benefiting McCune Brooks Hospital, in the
"THERES NO PLACE LIKE HOME" party
series. The six hostesses who donated the time
and materials to this four course luncheon were
artCentral Board members Miriam Putnam, Sarah
Ross, Helen Kunze, and myself as well as Cathy
Hauser. Led by our "chief-chef" Cathy,
we fed our group well, the menu including a cold
blueberry soup, vegetable tureen salad, roasted
salmon with chive cream sauce, broiled eggplant
with cheese and risotto, homemade rolls and
Italian crème cake for dessert. The group later
enjoyed a program given by retired art curator
and appraiser Michael Bell of Joplin, who spoke
about the various heirlooms and antiques the
women brought along for perusal. A great
afternoon was had by all, and we thank artCentral
for the donation of the fee usually charged for
special events. Dont forget the Hyde House
for your special event, art class, or party!
