NEW SLUDGE MILL
The new sludge mill which Dr. A. L.
Olive and J. E. Bell, of this city, have erected on the
Center Valley lease near Oronogo is getting into fine
running shape. It was started up a week ago Saturday and
naturally had to have a good many things adjusted before
it could run satisfactorily. This made more or less
hindrance last week, but it is working well this week,
and appears to be a great success in every respect.
A Department Store.
Is simply an old fashioned country
store enlarged, organized and systemized or it might be
said, it is a number of stores combined under one roof
The advantage of this evolution is to
do business on a smaller percent of expense. Every
department or store added to the establishment reduces
the percent of cost of doing business as a whole, so that
merchandise can be sold at less profit than under the old
The Carthage Police Department
reports that Carthage has experienced many
serious acts of vandalism recently. The vandalism
includes graffiti and property destruction
totaling thousands of dollars. Private homes,
businesses, schools and convenience stores have
all been targets.
The Carthage Police Department
has established a vandalism task force to focus
on the problem and is asking for help from the
community. Persons with information regarding the
vandalism are requested to call the Carthage
Police Department at 237-7200.
Mail listed the "Thats
Entertainment" Chautauqua as beginning this
week, which is incorrect. The dates in the
article were correct, June 25 through June 30,
however those dates are one week away, as today
is June 20th. The Mornin Mail would
like to issue an apology to any persons who have
been negatively impacted by the incorrect
information. More information will be released
about the Chautauqua next week, when it is to be
Looks like after a while
I pulled that
other day. Tried to break off a loose thread from
a button. Still havent found the button.
Last I saw it, it was rollin off in the
I dont know what it is
that makes ya figure this time you can outsmart a
piece a thread. Looks simple enough. Just yank a
little harder and at just the right angle.
That technique works great for
removin buttons, but does little to relieve
the annoyance of a loose thread danglin on
the front of your shirt.
Some lessons just need ta be
relearned from time to time. Someone say
somethin about bein smarter
than a piece of thread?
This is some fact, but mostly,

Oak Street Health and Herbs
|ArtCentral by Sally Armstrong, Director of
Membership Show is underway, having opened June
20th, and we hope folks who were not in
attendance at the barbeque picnic will come to
see the exhibit during our regular hours,
Thursdays through Sundays, noon until 5:00, until
the closing on July 6th. There is something for
every taste, and the 50 member artists who are
participating have brought us some interesting
and beautiful work. Jan Hyde of the Hyde Gallery
in Springfield (no relationship to us) was our
judge, and I will publicly announce the winners
of the various awards at my next writing!
Meantime, there is much to keep us busy here, and
also underway are the plans for the installation
of the Lowell Davis panels at our new McCune
Brooks Regional Hospital location here in
Carthage. Our thanks have gone to the various
generous donors who have donated to this project,
and to Carthage Radiology for the generous gift
of the materials and labor that went into the
printing of the mailers, to Cleos Picture
Framing and Gallery in Joplin for the beautiful
frames, and for the gift of replacement glass and
repairs of one of the pieces that met with an
accident while on display publicly. A special
thanks to the folks at McCune Brooks and Beth
Simmons, who are providing the public venue for
the pieces, that they so deserve. I hope everyone
will note the date of June 29th , at 4:00 pm, on
their calendars and come out for the dedication
and hanging of these works, which I understand
will hang along with other pieces by Mr. Davis.
This will be an informal affair, and the plaque
with the donor names will be presented as well.
If you have not yet visited our beautiful new
hospital, this would be a nice opportunity to do

treatment of sinus conditions. It is also popular
in Europe for antibacterial, antiviral, and
Plantain is considered an
important first aid herb. The leaves have been

some in case of bee sting or mosquito bites.
Mullein acts as an expectorant

ear ache. When I was young, my Father discovered
a small wart near my elbow and picked some
mullein leaf and rubbed it on my wart several
times, no more wart.
