Editor Clinch Valley News:
Hear Sir: You struck the right
note, when in your recent issue you
suggested smaller crop acreages and
belter tilth. This has been my idea
of better farming during the past
three or four years. The lack of acre?
age brought me to the realization
that tilth is to be put before acreage.
By putting an acre in good state,
and giving it thorough cultivation, I
have been able to make that acre
produce as much as three or four by
Seed corn is going to be quite an

alone, it would be well to take more

of the crop.
Let the rule be tilth before acreage
but let the acreage be as generous
as your force for cultivation will

ED ADAMS MUST
Tazewell Circuit Court Decides
He is Not Proper Person To
Sell Soft Drinks To Pocahon
Ed. Adams, the former Pocnhon
tas saloon-keeper, who has so often
appeared in court here upon the
charge of violation of the State pro?
hibition laws, has suffered the revo?
cation of his license to sell soft drinks
in the town of Pocahontas, and will
have to close up Bhop when his pres?
ence license expires in May.
The proceedings were brought in
court here to revoke the license of
Adams, by the Commonwealth's At?
torney, who, with a large number
of the citizens of the town of Poca?
hontas, were of the opinion that Ad?
ams was using his soft drink estab?
lishment as a rendesvouz for boot?
leggers and violators of the revenue
laws. From the evidence introduced
and the consequent quick decision of
.lodge Keglcy in reaching a decis?
ion, it appears that it was pretty
well established that Adams is not
as innocent of wrong-doing as some
of the members of the Town Coun?
cil of his town were wont to make
him out to be.
Among the witnesses for the State
were the following:
W. M. Mlntor, police justice of Po?
cahontas. It was his opinion that
Adams was not selling the liquor
himself, but that he hired others to
conduct the traffic for him.
Magistrate Gco. W. Gillespie of
Boissevaino thought that where there
was so much smoke there must be
some lire, and that Adams was the
king bee in the sale of liquor in Po?
John M. Newton, fire insurance and
life insurance agent of Pocahontas
also thought that Adams was guilty
of being a party to the Illicit sale of
.lohn W. Owens, former police jus?
tice und a resident of Pocahontas for
many years was of opinion that the
negro was at tbo head of the busi?
ness, and employed others to carry
on the trade.
A number of other witnesses tes?
tified, some for und some against.
Among the witnesses for Adams, was
former deputy Sheriff Charles Stump,
who filled the office of deputy In
Pocahontas for eight years, lie gave
Adams a clean bill of health and a
high recommendation for uprightness
and integrity. Before he left the
witness stund, however Common?
wealth's Attorney Harmntl called to
his (mind the fact, that he was present,
in 19Hi when n raid was made on
the Adams premises and sovernl wag?
on loads of illicit liquor confiscated.
The former deputy's memory was re?
freshed by this little incident.
A spectator in the audience who
has had occasion to observe the many
escapades in which Adams has figur?
ed in court hero, expressed himself as
being very much bewildered nt the
fact that so many of the leading cit?
izens of Pocahontas have testified
lime and again in court here that
Adams is guilty of being accessory
to the sale of liquor in Pocahontas,
and that in the face of this testimo?
ny such a condition is permitted to
exist and be u stench in the nos?
trils of the good people of the town.
The question is, if the conditions
in Pocahontas are like they are pic?
tured, what are the town officials do?
ing to suppress the evil'.' If they

excitement and surprise for ull Leba?
non Inst Friday when Jnmes Sandoe,
a soldier boy here on a furlough,
eloped with Miss Helen, the seventeen
year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs.

The groom is a son of J. L. Sandoe,
of Wise, but was born and reared in
Lebanon, where his two other broth?

The Primer family were taken by
complete surprise and are considera?
bly torn up over the elopement on
account of their being first cousins
and the further fact that nothing has
been heard from them since boarding

It is the talk and belief of many
that Sandoe is now absent from Camp

daughter, Miss Rebecca . Campbell,
who was placed in the same stone jail
back of the court house a week ear?

bell when they arc to fuce a jury of
their peers on a charge of causing
the death of the eighty-year old
mother and grand mother, a report
of which was carried in Inst week's
Just what the new evidence is that
connects and caused the arrest of the
son of the deeensed is not known by

out by a jury of Russell county men.
It is understood that Mr. Campbell
denies everything and admits noth?

he said: "Why. she wa.: my mother
and I would have died for her."
A News man visited the Campbell
woman at the jail Tuesday afternoon.

CALF CI.UH MEMBERS.
The rules for beginning the contest
have been so changed for the State
that instead of each boy being re?
quired to start March 1st they may
start any lime between March 1st
und IOth. Those who start the 10til
will be allowed ten days longer at
the close than those who .start the
1st. This was done to give each boy
plenty of time in which to gel start?

be worth more to us than ten days

I bcr to wait until the '.lib to weigh
up his calf though he may do it be?
fore if be widies. As the !>lh is on
Saturday I would also nuggcal that
each boy lake advantage of the day
oil' from school to weigh up his feed
and tlx a good place to keep it. Don't,
forget to weigh your calf on or be?
fore the morning of the 101 Ii of
History of Ruby Beef dull Work in
February 15, l!>l<>, marked the be?
ginning of one of the most. intoroBt
ing features of Boys' Agricultural
(Hub Work in Virginia, Twonty-two
boys and four girls from Lea county,
eleven boys from Russell and live
boys from Tazewell county weighed
their calves and entered them in the
Virginia Baby Beef Club contest.
From that time until the 22nd of
Si ptember those calve.'; were fed ra?
tions recommended by iho Extension
Division and the County Agents of
the respective counties.
In 11117 Baby Beef Club work was
far more successful than in 1910.
Twenty-two calves from Lee and nine
from Tazewell county were weighed
up on tin; 15th of February, and the
average weight was'430 per calf. The
average age at that time was eight,
months. A moro interested bunch of
young calf fenders could not be found
anywhere than was found in these
two clubs. Every, spare moment, in?
stead of those boys being found loaf?
ing at some jrroccry store, thoy were
found grooming and potting their
When weighed the 22nd of Sep?
tember, 219 days from the time the
contest started, the calves weighed
an average of 905 pounds or 409 lbs.
more than when feeding began, an
average daily gain of 2.15 pounds.
Due to the fact that feed this sea
son was almost double in value an
compared with 1910, the cost of milk?
ing this gain was 8.87 cents per lb.
These calves were sold for 14 l-2c
per pound to Swift and Company,
thereby making a handsome profit.
At Roanoke, the hoys and girls
showed their calves and won $400 in
, prizes. At Richmond, the American
i National Bank gave prizes amounting
to $500. In open competition, the
steer calves won $308.00, thus mak?
ing over $1,000 in cash prizes at the
two fairs. Other titan prize money,
i the boys nnd girls were entertained
[ by the Fair Association, the Cham?
ber of Commerce of Richmond, and
Ada Litton, of Lee county, won
$12-1 in cash prizes, was given a trip
to the Virginia State Fair and re?
ceived a net profit of $51.85 on her
calf; thus making the one calf bring
her $175.85 in money, and a Valuable
trip which could not be estimated in
dollars and cents.
For those boys between 8 nnd 18
years who have not joined but wish
to do so I will say that the only rc
quircvr.ents nre that they secure a
high grade beef calf born since Jan.
1, 1917, and feed it until time to go
to the Richmond Fair. The calf
must be weighed on or before Mar.
10th and weight of feed used kept.
Those who wish to join must give
me their names at once.
?1.50 PER YEAIC
BILL IS PASSED
Legislature Establishes Record
In Passing Laws?Compensa?
tion Hill Passes Senate?More
Money For Road Work.
Richmond, Va., February 26.?Sev
un hours after it came up under spec?
ial oidcr at 11 o'clock today the house
appropriation hill laid been adopted
and passed to the senate, creating a
now record for speed in this class of
legislation. The only material change
in the bill as it came from the com?
mittee is one whereby $225,000 of
the I'.im appropriation for loads it*
shifted to the. appropriation for 1018
making the total for this year $555,
000 instead of $380,000. The shift,
was made to provide funds sufficient
to meet the federal appropriation
due July I of this year.
The change of the road appropria?
tion grew out of Robert O. Morris'
request that. $220,01)1) lie added to the
appropriation for this year. In pre?
senting this request he made a vigor
OU3 speech in the interest of good
loads and contended that with the
sum mentioned in the bill, Virginia
could hope tn accomplish little in a
constructive wny mid that the sum
was really not suOlcienl to meet the
appropriation due the State from the
federal aid fund.
In defense of his position he called
on Highway Commissioner t'oleman
to address the house. Speaker Hous?
ton vacated the chair for the com?
missioncr to speak. Mr, Coleninn
contended tluil the appropriation was
much too small but admitted when
questioned by Colonur Drewer, Chair?
man nf the appropriation committee,
that with the shift <d a purl Of the
HUD appropriation to that of KHK,
his department could avail itself of
that pail nf the federal fund now
due and that considerable work could
he done pending larger appropria?
tions by the 11)20 General Assembly.
When Mr. Colemtlll concluded, Col?
onel llrewer offered as n substitute
for Mr. Morris' proposal that the
appropriation be shifted, Thomas Lo
niux Hunter characterized the shift
as a makeshift and Air. Nun is fought
valiantly against it, as did Albert
H?schen ami W. \V. Sproul. R. A.
Anderson, minority lender, sided with
Colonel llrewer. When the vote came
I he appropriation chairman was ov
whehningly the victor.
Ily an overwhelming vote the re?
vised code of Virginia has been ap?
proved by Hie house of dclogatOB as
amended and passed by the senate.
On a roll call, the result of which
railway crossing seel ion were defeat?
ed, and nil other revisions wore then
accepted without contest, The code
now goes In the printer and binder
and will be ready for distribution as
soon as possible.
The workmens compensation bill
has passed the Semite after a hard
light in which Governor Davis suc?
ceeded in having his views engrafted
into the hill over the protest of the
patron by having flic second auditor,
the insurance commissioner and the
labor commissioner substituted for
the three men who were to be named
to have supervision of tho opera?
tions of the law, and in opposition
to the expressed wish of the worlc
ingmen and the employer;;, who sup?
ported and favored the bill reported
by the commission.
It was slated on the lloor that the
governor was standing by his decla?
ration to oppose the creation of any
new ofliccs and the intimation was
that he would veto the bill unless his
wishes were followed, and the bill
amended in dealing with the commis?

er of Tazewell county, and Mrs. Lena
