"What did the minister say?"
"He was against it."

The Plymouth Rock Mining
Co. has loaded a car of zinc ore which is very fine. It
brings a premium of 50 cents a ton over the average ore.
This speaks well for the Plymouth Rock mines as producers

I learned how to use a tire gauge at an early
age. After burnin on a patch to my bicycle
inner tube, I pumped and pumped on our tire pump
until I could safely ride to the service station.
That was fun, pullin up
to the gas pumps and parkin to use their
air hose. It was so much fun I put in a little
more air. Not yet of the age to properly gauge
the pounds of pressure by just feelin the
tire, I naturally overinflated. This didnt
cause me a stiff ride however, it blew the side
right out of the tire.
After pushin the bike
back home and mournin the lack of a ride, I
began countin pennies to purchase a new
tire. Since that time Ive always hated
puttin air in a tire without a gauge.
Proper inflation is still a measurable science
that anyone can learn.
This is some fact, but mostly,

You have the best doctor on
call! What I am referring to is the doctor inside
of you. This internal physician works 24/7
helping your body reach balance, also called
homeostasis. When you catch a cold, your
physician creates a river of mucus to carry the
bacteria or virus out of your body. Often, your
doctor will make you cough in order to rid your
lung of throat of congestion. A fever is a great
indication that your personal physician is
helping you fight off infection.
As you sleep, your doctor works
to help cleanse, repair, and replenish your body.
This is an inner intelligence we were given by
our Creator, God.
I encourage you on your
wellness path to allow your doctor to do his job.
All too often, drugs are introduced too soon and
inhibit your bodys doctor to do what it
HEAL. No doubt, drugs are
absolutely needed at times and they are credited
for saving countless lives, however, too many
needless drugs will make your doctor lazy.
It is essential to remember
that your doctor is working harder than ever
these days. Our internal environment is
constantly being bombarded with toxins and stress
of various kinds. We can strive to support our
internal doctor in very practical ways. Soft
tissue body work that addresses the nervous
system helps increase energy flow throughout your
body and also helps balance the immune system.
Also, foods rich in antioxidants such as
blueberries or green vegetables help provide
essential nutrients to fuel your internal doctor.
Lastly, consider a customized nutrition plan that
meets your specific internal needs for health.
Yours in good

Art Notes from Hyde House
By Sally Armstrong, Director of artCentral
Carthage all Maple Leaf visitors! If you are
reading this article during our Maple Leaf
weekend you already know that there are multiple
activities available to you here in Carthage,
some of which will have already taken place at
the time of this printing. If you have seen the
special tri-fold Maple Leaf brochure you may have
noticed information about the art exhibit on
display here at artCentral. We have our own
brochures spread around town at the various other
museums and businesses, and directions to our
location are printed there. Our gallery is
located in one of Carthages historic homes
called the Katherine Hyde House, and it is
interesting in itself. Here you will find an
exhibit of art that is by Joplin, Missouri artist
Patricia Moline in a show entitled
"CLOUDY". This exhibition contains oil
paintings of various beautiful cloud formations
as well as other landscapes and florals. Our show
will remain until the weekend of October 26th and
our hours this weekend will be Friday, noon to
5:00 pm, Saturday 2:00- 5:00 pm, and Sunday noon
to 5:00 pm. Since we are near the football field
where the band competition will be underway all
day Saturday, walk over and take a look! We are
also proud to present the work of Frank Young,
oil paintings of local interest, in a separate
show at the Sirloin Stockade on Central Avenue.
This is our satellite gallery, THE ATRIUM, and
contains work from previous shows, much of which
is also for sale. Carthage is an
"art-town" and has much fine art
available for public viewing, from our beautiful
Courthouse mural by artist Lowell Davis, to the
Civil War Museums work by Andy Thomas,
including Andys work at the City Hall. Our
beautiful new McCune Brooks Regional Hospital
contains a fine original art collection as well!
Welcome to Carthage and happy art viewing!
