More Accidents at
The Cass mine at Oronogo was the scene
of two accidents Thursday afternoon, and that evening the
blacksmith shop of the plant was burned. Two men who were
engaged in cutting ice in the mine, which is the property
of the American Zinc, Lead and Smelting company, slipped
and fell and were severely, although not seriously
injured. Their names could not be learned.
Later in the evening the blacksmith
shop caught fire and burned down, the loss being a total
one. Fortunately some sticks of dynamite, sixteen in
number, which were in the shop were got out before any
explosion occurred, or the loss would have been much

Letter to the Editor
Opinions expressed reflect those of the writer

I dont agree that the pee
wee football team should be allowed to play on
the soccer fields (even though they already are)
because the soccer team has to pay to play at the
complex for up keep and they do a good job of
keeping it up. I am sure the football teams are
not paying for the right to play.
I am also sure they would not
let the High School Soccer team play or practice
on their practice field. I dont know if
folks know how good the coaches and their soccer
team is. They have gone to districts almost every
year in the past 12 years. This past weekend JV
won the tournament.
I think if they would just come
out and watch a game they would be hooked on
soccer. If you dont understand some of the
rules many of the soccer parents have been around
for many years. I myself have had my kids in the
program for 22 years all 5 of my boys started
playing when they were 5-years-old.
I cant say enough good
things about coaches Huntley and Rogers. They are
there for the kids to help them to be better
adults, teach discipline and team work. There is
no such thing as a one-man-show, as in some other
Whether you agree or not, our

The special election for County
Sheriff is likely to not bring out a big number
of voters, so your vote is even more critical. It
is possible that ten or fifteen percent of the

For some in the rural areas,
the drive to the poll might be a factor, but it
shouldnt be much of a problem in Carthage.
Take the time to vote.

YOUR GOOD HEALTH
By Paul G. Donohue, M.D.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: For some time
I have been troubled with a feeling of
lightheadedness bordering on being dizzy. The
sensation is greatest when I stand up, lie down
or roll over in bed. None of my doctors has
offered a diagnosis or cure. Can you offer any
ANSWER: If, by
"dizziness," you mean a sensation as
though you are on the verge of passing out, then
a case can be made for orthostatic hypotension, a
sudden drop in blood pressure upon rising.
When people rise from a seat,
get out of bed or make any quick change from a
horizontal or semi-horizontal position to a
vertical one, the body must make rapid
adjustments. Such changes cause blood pressure to
dip because blood remains in the lowermost parts
of the body. The heart does not have enough blood
to supply the brain, and people complain of
feeling woozy. Thankfully, a healthy body can
keep blood pressure up when these positional
changes are made. If it cannot, people feel
Doctors diagnose orthostatic
hypotension by taking a persons blood
pressure seated and then taking it after the
patient rises quickly to the standing position.
Taking more salt, rising more slowly and
elevating the head of the bed are sometimes the
only treatments needed. At other times, the
doctor must prescribe medicine.
