A Chronological Record of Events as they have
Transpired in the City and County since our last Issue.
Northwest of Town-North Carthage Plant Doing Good Work.
Mining matters are decidedly lively at
the "Maxmines" four miles northwest of Carthage
where such a phenomenally rich strike of ore was recently
made. The "Hayseed" company who are the
original proprietors and own the main lease, are
preparing to put in pumps at once to drain the ground.
Max Weeks farm was surveyed and
platted into lots by City Engineer Edwards Tuesday. When
it is to be opened to prospectors is not yet know, but
there will undoubtedly be a big rush for lots.
B.A. Ash is putting down shafts on each
side of the "Hayseed" hole- one is on the Max
Weeks land and the other is on W.E. Halls farm. He
is confident of striking the big run of stuff.
A drill has also been put to work
prospecting the Weeks home place a half a mile by a
company composed of H. H. Beck with, B. A. Ash, James
Luke, Julius Finke and Wm. Journey.
AT SOUTH CARTHAGE.
The New Plant at South Carthage is now
working away in great shape, crushing from the dump pile
and cleaning on dirt fresh from the shaft. It is making
an average of 8 to 10 tons of zinc ore a day.
Wm. P. Smith, who owns the South
Carthage lease, is putting down a drill hole on his farm
which adjoins. He has struck good shines at 62 feet.

News Release - On Thursday,
September 1, 2011, Jasper County Sheriff Archie
Dunn and Newton County Sheriff Ken Copeland met
with Joplin School Superintendent Dr. C.J. Huff.
and presented him with a check for $1,433.00. The
money is to help replace special needs vests that
autistic children wear at school.
The money was collected during
the Missouri Sheriffs Conference, which was
held in Joplin, by donating proceeds from a
raffle and any cash won as a door prize.
from Representative Tom Flanigan.
"Over the past several
weeks there has been growing concern that the
citizens of this state were being underserved by
a contract between the Department of Health and
Senior Services and SynCare, LLC to evaluate
individuals needs for in-home healthcare.
Following numerous meetings with the Department,
it became increasingly evident that this contract
needed to be terminated. I look forward, as
chairman of the House Appropriations Committee on
Health, Mental Health, and Social Services, to
working with Director Donnelly in finding an
appropriate resolution going forward."

Whenever I find a
conversation goin to far in
talkin bout the "good
ol days" I always bring up the
topic of cookstoves and outhouses. That will
usually bring folks back to their senses.
Although there are probly a lot of good
stories about these particular articles of
fascination, most Ive talked to
dont want to go back quite that far.
Wood cook stoves have some
charm for sure, but havin ta get up and
stoke the fire on a cold mornin usually
isnt a fond memory (unless someone else
did the stokin).
Outhouses are always a good
conversation generator. Cold mornins
and hot summer days seem to be the most
mentioned rememberances I hear. Thunder
buckets dont seem ta be much missed
either. A simpler time maybe, but not without
This is some fact, but

HERES A TIP
Plant deciduous trees
(trees that lose their leaves in the fall)
strategically in order to reduce your heating and
cooling costs. Their leaves emerge in the spring
to block summers heating rays, but when
winter comes, they fall off to let the sun in,
warming things up a bit.
Keep nail-polish bottles
easy to open by rubbing a little bit of petroleum
jelly inside the cap of the bottle.
M.C. in Arizona would
like to know some alternative uses for hair
conditioner. Here goes: as a shaving lotion for
legs or face; a makeup remover; ouch-free bandage
removal; to soften makeup brushes or paintbrushes
before storage; to get knots out of doll hair or
costume wigs; washing delicates (think silks and
pantyhose); rub on a shower rod to help curtain
glide effortlessly; and lastly, soak a shrunken
sweater in a conditioner/water solution to soften
the fibers, then gently try stretching the
sweater back to size.
"Clean an egg
carton very well, then flip it over and make
slits in each egg cup. This works wonders as a
childs card holder for card games." --

Use an empty paper towel
roll to store plastic grocery bags. Just stuff to
capacity. These "bag sticks" are easy
to store in a drawer or even be mounted on the
side of a trash can with double-stick tape.
When cleaning glass
tabletops or chrome fixtures, try using newspaper
instead of paper towels or rags. There is no lint
left behind, and newspaper gives a better shine.
