Coal Mines in Saline County70
      The Carrier Mills Coal Co. had sunk a mine in the Thompson community, near Carrier Mills, and on May 22, 1906, sold this property to the O'Gara company. It was designated as the No. 13 mine, although it had been purchased before the No. 12 mine. The interesting thought arises from this transaction that Thomas J. O'Gara bore an Irish name, and probably was somewhat superstitious, inasmuch as the No. 13 mine was shut down immediately on purchase, and never was operated thereafter.
