A Chronological Record of Events as they have
Transpired in the City and County since our last Issue.
Fire in a Laundry.
Last evening about 9
oclock the dry room at the Modern laundry, corner
of Central avenue and Grant street, caught fire and
before it was discovered considerable damage was done.
The ceiling and floor of the second story was badly
scorched and the pulleys and belting of the machinery
destroyed. A hundred or so shirts were ruined and other
clothing badly scorched and smoked up. The fire company
got out promptly and handled the incipient blaze in short
order. The loss was fully covered by insurance. We
understand the Mr. Sevier intends to resume business as
soon as repairs can be made.
Thomas Henley, the popular
merchant tailer, returned yesterday from his trip to
Ireland. His brother had died and was buried when he got
there. Henley is still satisfied with America, and finds
Ireland a little behind the times.

I learned how to use a tire gauge at an early
age. After burnin on a patch to my bicycle
inner tube, I pumped and pumped on our tire pump
until I could safely ride to the service station.
That was fun,
pullin up to the gas pumps and parkin
to use their air hose. It was so much fun I put
in a little more air. Not yet of the age to
properly gauge the pounds of pressure by just
feelin the tire, I naturally overinflated.
This didnt cause me a stiff ride however,
it blew the side right out of the tire. After
pushin the bike back home and mournin
the lack of a ride, I began countin pennies
to purchase a new tire.
Since that time Ive
always hated puttin air in a tire without a
gauge. Proper inflation is still a measurable
science that anyone can learn.
This is some fact, but mostly,
Just Jake Talkin.
Oak Street Health & Herbs
By Mari An Willis
Fall is here and along with it
the beginning of cold and flu season. Now is the
time to begin preparing your body for the
overexposure to various "bugs."
This is a good time to explore
the tonic herbs which are used to strengthen the
body especially the complex immune system. These
herbs are "ounce of prevention" herbs.
Tonic herbs are somewhat adaptogenic in nature
which helps us to adjust to conditions our bodies
must face... stress, colds, pollen, dust, etc.
Some tonic herbs found in many
formulas today are:
Ginseng - probably the most
well known tonic herb. It has been used by the
Chinese for centuries to treat most any
"deficiency." This may include lack of
energy, lack of sexual stamina, frequent colds or
general lack of motivation. There are several
varieties of Ginseng available with Chinese and
American being the most prized.
Astragalus - has been
limelighted in the press for the suggested use of
avoiding the flu and colds. It is an immune
system enhancer and may be used over long periods
of time. Unlike Echinacea which should be used
for a short duration when the firs symptoms of a
condition arise, Astragalus is used on an ongoing
basis. Michael Tierra, N.D. states in his book
Planetary Herbology, that Astragalus strengthens
digestion, raises metabolism, strengthens the
immune system and promotes the healing of wounds
and injuries. It is used to treat chronic
weakness of the lungs with shortness of breath
and collapse of energy.
