A Chronological Record of Events as they have
Transpired in the City and County since our last Issue.
Lucky Budge Successful.
John Darby Says it has
Big Output Each Week.
"I believe that the
past year has been the most successful of many for our
company," said John Darby of South Main Street,
member of the Lucky Budge Mining company yesterday. The
Lucky Budge, which is producing about 60,000 pounds of
zinc a week is located on the Aylor ground at Prosperity.
In the bins of the company there is piled 350,000 pounds
of lead which is being held for higher prices. The
company is now starting the slope in the original shaft
and has uncovered a very rich run of ore. The showing
made by the company, says various officials, is better
than for many years, and now the production of lead will
reach 40,000 pounds a week.

The City Council
Public Works Committee will meet this afternoon
at 5:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers of City
Hall. The committee is scheduled to continue
discussing possible amendments to the Carthage
Code regarding offensive odors.
previous Public Works Committee meeting the
committee agreed to pursue an ordinance that
would allow the City to enforce odor regulations
instead of relying on the Missouri Department of
Natural Resources. It was noted that several
other cities, including Springfield, have enacted
similar ordinances with some success.
for inclusion in the ordinance included odor
detection and identification, abatement,
enforcement, and right of entry to the
offenders property. The committee requested
a draft ordinance for review, as well as an
estimated cost of implementation. Some equipment
would need to be purchased by the City in order
to aid with the detection of odors.
The committee is
also scheduled to discuss a bid opening for
demolition and removal of a structure at 327
"Get big or get out" was a favorite
sayin of my dad when he was talkin to
customers in his small sundry store. He
eventually got out. That was back when the big
discount stores were just startin to
saturate the midwest.
I can still remember goin
to the "Giant" store for the first
time. It was bigger and better stocked than the
wholesaler dad bought from for the store. Prices
were even better for some items. Its no
wonder there are few mom and pop five and dimes
The fact is that small business
has more tools available to it today than ever to
keep up with the changin market place.
Personal service and the ability to adjust to a
changing local or regional market are the best
weapons for survival to the small companies.
This is some fact, but mostly,

Breasts Dont Up Cancer Risk
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
Both my left and right breasts have many lumps.
They scared me, so I saw an OB/GYN doctor. She
spent a long time examining my breasts and told
me I had fibrocystic breast disease and that it
was nothing to worry about. I had a mammogram,
and no cancer was seen. I still worry. Does this
turn into cancer? -- V.B.
Fibrocystic breast disease shouldnt be
called a disease. It has been renamed
"Disease" is not a word that can be
used when 60 percent of premenopausal women have
refers to strands of scar tissue. Cysts are
fluid-filled sacs. With fibrocystic breast
changes, both breasts are usually involved,
something that rarely happens in cancer. The
cysts are soft and feel like theyre made of
rubber. They can be painful, especially in the
days before a menstrual period. Cancers are
solitary, hard masses that cannot be pushed
around, like a cyst can.
changes are not cancer and dont become
cancer. If they do become painful, take Tylenol
or one of the anti-inflammatory medicines like
Aleve or Advil. Some women find that eliminating
caffeine eliminates the pain of fibrocystic
breasts. Others have gotten relief by adopting a
high-carbohydrate, low-fat diet.
You can put this
issue to rest.
