KADERLY AND SIMPSON
Lamar Rape Suspects Acquitted.
The trial of William Kaderly and
William Simpson, the two farmers who were charged with
the rape of Mrs. Resh near Lamar sometime ago, came to an
abrupt end yesterday morning just after 11 oclock
when the jury returned a verdict of not guilty without
leaving their seats. After all the testimony for the
state was in the attorneys for the defendants, offered a
demurrer. The demurrer was sustained in each instance and
the court instructed the jury to find the men not guilty,
which they did. The verdict gave general satisfaction.
The Lamar Republican, with
characteristic enterprise, immediately issued an extra
edition, from which the above details are taken.
Look out for the oil wagon with the

The question of whether or not
Southwind Acres becomes a part of the City of
Carthage will be answered today at the polling
booth. The issue will need to win two-thirds of
the votes cast to be approved.
The area, just south of
Wal-Mart, (see map inside) is comprised of a few
dozen homes that residents say should stay
outside of City limits. They have rejected the
invitation of the City to become a legal part of
Carthage and voted last November a resounding no
in that attempt to resolve the issue.
The City has held several open
forums on the subject and have attempted to
convince those living in the area that being a
legal part of the City would be to their benefit.
The main benefit presented was hooking up to the
City water and waste water system. The acreage
currently uses individual wells and septic tanks.
The cost of the improvements would be borne by

One a the latest topics to be
revisited is the idea of lettin folks
operate a business outa their home. Havin
been one a those who originally worked from the
kitchen table myself, I know the advantage of not
openin a storefront. The problem that
usually comes up when this discussion is
initiated is where do ya draw the line?
A phone call to a Council
member requestin information on
openin a taxidermy outfit in the family
garage rekindled the age old question of business
vs. residential zonin.
If cuttin up dead animals
is a possibility, why not pig farmin? (By
the way, havin some farm animals are still
legal in Carthage, as long as neighbors
dont raise a stink).
Its the classic debate
over individual vs. state rights. Always a worthy

To Your Good
By Paul G. Donohue, M.D.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: A commercial
I saw on TV had a grandparent and grandchild
talking about peripheral artery disease. It got
me wondering if I have it. I got the idea that
many older people do. I am 78. What are its
signs? -- K.M.
ANSWER: Peripheral artery
disease, PAD, also called peripheral vascular
disease is a common condition in older people,
but not every senior citizen has it. Close to 15%
of those over 70 do.
refers to the legs. "Artery disease" is
artery clogging, the same process that goes on in
heart arteries and culminates in a heart attack.
High blood cholesterol, blood fats, blood protein
and platelets aggregate on an artery wall,
eventually blocking circulation to the tissues
fed by that artery.
Blood doesnt reach leg
muscles in a sufficient amount to support those
muscles when theyre active. The common sign
of PAD is calf pain while walking. The pain
leaves when the person stops walking. The pain
indicates leg muscles arent getting enough
A simple office test to detect
PAD is to compare blood pressure taken at the
ankles with blood pressure taken in the arms. The
two readings should be close. With PAD, the ankle
blood pressure is lower than arm pressure due to
the obstruction to blood flow.
If the doctor does confirm a
diagnosis of PAD, prescription medicines help
blood get around artery blockages.
