A Big Plow.
Platt & Ziler, the Howard avenue
blacksmiths, have just completed a mammoth road plow for
Commissioner Heck of the Carthage special district. The
big machine is intended for rocky ground, where an
ordinary plow would be of no use.
The beam is made of a 6x12 white oak
timber and is 10 feet long. The shafe is unsharpened and
cuts but 7 inches in width; the handles and braces are of
iron and the whole machine weighs over 600 pounds. It
will require from 12 to 20 horses to pull it. The price
paid for it was $50.
Moses Buergy, who was so seriously
shocked Saturday night by a live wire on East Fourth
street, is able to be up today, and was out on the street
a little while this morning.

Asthma Not Only
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: What gives?
When I was a kid, I had asthma. Then it went away
completely. Now, at age 37, its come back.
As a child, I took only one medicine, and did
well. Now I have a number of medicines and
inhalers, and Im confused. Will you
simplify asthma for me? It isnt the same as
it used to be. Do you think I have developed
allergies that brought it back? -- H.F.
ANSWER: In the more developed
countries of the world, around 15 percent of
children and 12 percent of adults suffer from
asthma. Asthma resolves for many children as they
reach adolescence, but it can come back. Adults
also can develop asthma for the first time.
Its not strictly a childhood problem.
Cough, wheezing and shortness
of breath are the signs of an asthma attack.
Asthma comes in attacks separated by periods when
the asthmatic is well. The goal of treatment is
to extend the well periods and shorten any
attacks, something that wasnt all that
possible when you had only one medicine as a
The basis of an attack is
constriction of the breathing tubes, the airways,
the bronchi. Along with narrowed airways,
inflammation strikes them, and they fill with
thick mucus. The combination makes it difficult
to get air into and out of the lungs. Exhaling is
Triggers for asthma attacks
include cold air, exercise, viral infections like
the common cold and allergens. If your doctor
believes that allergens are leading to your
asthma attacks, then testing for them is
worthwhile. For many, allergy doesnt lead
to bouts of asthma.
Exercise as a trigger needs
some clarification. Everyone gets short of breath
when exercising, but recovery is quick, within
five minutes. Breathlessness brought on by an
exercise-induced asthma attack lasts much longer,
30 to 60 minutes.
An attack of asthma often can
be stopped in its tracks with an inhaler medicine
like albuterol (Ventolin and Proventil). For
longer control, cortisone inhalers or inhalers
containing cortisone and a long-acting drug that
expands airways keeps a person attack-free.
Advair is an example.
