Mark Twain told this story to
prove that he was a success right from the start.
At the time this incident occurred he was a
compositor on a small country newspaper. A few
hours before the afternoon edition went to press,
a man came in to place a classified ad in regard
to his lost dog. "Do you think I put that ad
in the paper?" asked Twain. "Why man, I
went right out, found that dog before the
afternoon edition was on the street, and claimed

my head it falsify move."
A Chronological Record of Events as they have
Transpired in the City and County since our last Issue.

Whale Oil Gus Soap.
When passing Kilnes
cigar and confectionery store, two doors south of the
Arlington hotel, stop in and get a cake of spermaceti
soap, made by Whale Oil Gus. We are sole agents in
Council will meet this evening in a regular
session. Items on the agenda include the first
reading of an ordinance proposing a change to the
composition of the McCune-Brooks Regional
Hospital Board of Trustees. The proposed changes
would require that all of the members of the
board reside in Jasper County, and of those 1/3
must reside in the City of Carthage. Currently
3/5 of the board must be Carthage residents. The
change is proposed to reflect recent amendments
to state legislature, and comes with the
recommendation of the Public Services Committee.
Council is also
scheduled to hear the first reading of an
ordinance that would allow the sale of fireworks
within the City limits, and a resolution that
would authorize the condemnation of property at
the intersection of Airport Drive and River
ordinances will be in their second reading. One
would authorize a special use permit for a
preschool at 126 Wiggins, and the other would
rezone property at 600 S. Maple from District C
to District E. Both of these have received a
recommendation from the Planning, Zoning and
Historic Preservation Commission.
I see where they are makin motor scooters
with 600cc motors. Not the Cushman of the past.
My uncle built him a motor bike
with a three horse power Briggs & Stratton.
Had a belt drive with a large pulley that hooked
to the spokes of the rear wheel.
Course it didnt have a
gear box or a clutch, ya pulled a lever to slide
the engine forward to engage the drive.
Bein on a bicycle frame,
it wasnt too stable, but it could cruise
along pretty good for a trip to the drug store
for a strawberry shake.
I suppose the new
"power" scooters are considerably
safer, but I cant imagine needin or
wantin that much power on a small wheeled
machine. Now those 90cc models have some appeal.
This is some fact, but mostly,

Most Everyone Uses
Too Much Salt
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
Sodium, sodium, sodium! Medical people
continually tell us to cut down on it. How much
is too much? Many packaged meals contain 10
percent to 40 percent. What does that percentage
mean? What are the limits you suggest? -- S.W.
people use too much sodium (salt, sodium
chloride). The upper limit on sodium isnt
my suggestion. It comes from a panel of experts,
and often different panels come up with different
limits. One group sets the upper daily limit at
2,400 mg of sodium. Another would like people to
use less, somewhere in the range of 1,200 mg to
The 2,400 mg
amount is equal to one teaspoon of salt. That
doesnt mean youre allowed to fill up
a teaspoon with salt and use that whole teaspoon
on food throughout the day. It indicates total
sodium intake. People get 77 percent of their
total daily sodium from processed and restaurant
foods, things like commercial soups, frozen foods
and luncheon meats. Another 12 percent comes from
the sodium found naturally in foods. Six percent
comes from salt sprinkled at the table, and 5
percent from salt added during cooking. You can
cut 11 percent of your sodium intake by
eliminating the last two sources. For salt added
during the processing of foods, you have to read
The percentage of
sodium listed on labels indicates the percent of
the recommended daily sodium intake found in a
serving of that food.
