Sharp Advance in E&s and (
Two widely consumed commodities,
butter and eggs, have registered sharp
advances in the Dast few weeks. Re
tail dealers on the local maiket are re
ceiving 35 cents a dozen for eggs and
the best country butter meeting with
ready sale at 30 cents a pound, while
the creamery product is being retailed
at the high price of 40 cents.
There is likely to be a further ad
vance in either of the commodities as
local dealers state they are both scarce
and at this season the demand is great.
The consumer may not be surprised at
any time to be compelled to dig down
in his pocket and meet another ad
vance in eggs and butter. Prevailing
prices in the larger cities are consider
ably higher than here and it is predic
ted the consumers will be compelled to
pay SI per dozen for eggs before the
winter is over. Eggs have sold on the
Cincinnati market as high as 43 cents.
The price of turkeys will bo as high
as last year and possibly higher. The
price is being regulated by the supply
this year which will be short. The
crop of Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky is
fairly good but reports from other sec
tions of the country are to the effect
that there is practically no crop at all.
Sixteen cents on loot was paid last
week in the local market and the
dressed fowls will go tu 28 cents pec
nound duiing the Thanksgiving week,
and there raav be another advance
from this. Tliose who figure on a
Thanksgiving turkey will be compelled
to Day dearly for the luxury or do
without and by the week of Thanks
giving there may be such an advance
as top ut the turkey out of reach of
the average family.
Local dealers are preparing fowls
for the Eastern market and the cool
dry weather is proving ideal for the
slaughtering. Turkeys are being dnv
en to the markets by hundreds. The
conditions are just to the liking of
shippers, who are taking advantage of
the clear, crisp days to prepare the
fowls for market. Pens at Carlisle
Millerbsurg and Paris are being run at
full capacity and will continue ao this
week and part of next.
"Murder" Among Animals.
Murder is not uncommon among
animals, "murder" in this sense being
applied to that kind of killing that has
nothing to do with the struggle for
existence, but which arises from mal
ice, pure and simple, or from down
right passion. Storks, it seems, fre
quently kill members of the flock
which, at the time of migration, eith
er refuse to follow them or are un
able to do so.
"That man is not a very good lo
gician, but he is a most impressive
talker." "Yes," replied Senator Sor
ghum; "he is what the musicians re
fer to as a performer with more tem
permanent than technique."
"Mr. Wombat, you ought to go in for
aviation. Many of our prominent peo
ple are taking it up." "I suppose I
ought. Have you got a machine that

feet from the ground?" Judge.
The truth that we utter is impalp
able, yet real; it cannot bo thrust
down by brute force, nor pierced with
a dagger, nor bribed with gold. . . .
The cause that we espouse is the
cause of human liberty, formidable to
tyrants, and dear to the oppressed,
throughout the world. William Lloyd

Mr. Ed Turner, of near this city,
delivered to E. F. Spears & Sons in
this city last week 786 barrel of corn,
for which he received $2.25. Ihis is
the largest single delivery of corn
made in this county this season.
The Danville Advocate says: "Mr.
W. H. Thurmond brought to this office
an ear of corn that we believe tops all
the 1912 freaks. It is a large ear and
is surrounded by eight smaller ones,
all matured and most of them well
The report comes from Carlisle
that John Burham of that county, has
had three women shucking corn for
him, that men laborers were so scarce
and those not employed were so lazy
that he was compelled to employ wom
en to get his corn shucking finished.

the 1912 crop continues to be sold at
the barns of the growers. A new aver-
aee of $17 per hundred is reported on
some crops, the best prices thus far
this season. Uther sales are running
averages on crops of from $9 to 316.

In order to keep the army supplied
with the best horsesthat can be secur
ed Government stallions are to be sent
to Kentucky, Tennessee and Virginia
provided the farmers of those States
shows sufficient interest in the plan to
warrant it. The point where the stal
lions will be kept will be decided after
an inquiry by the agents of the gov

ers. At the request of the war depart
ments ongress at the last session ap

Commissioner of Agriculture J.
W.Newman issued an order lifting the
quarantine in this state against the
shipment of Kansas and Nebraska
horses from St Louis, East St. Louis,
Kansas City. St. Joseph and Chicago
and Indianapolis stockyards. The
quarantine was put on October 15.
The Bureau of Animal Industry at
Washington notified him that the dis
ease which has been killing horses and
mules by the wholesale in those states,
is not communicable.
Tobacco buyers in Central Ken
tucky have been unusually active in
the past week closing contracts with
the growers before the opening of the
loose leaf market in the various cities
inJCentral Kentucky. Thousands of
pounds ot the weed have changed
hands atlrom 9 to 15 cents, a few ex
tra good crops being purchased at the
Tobacco stripping in Bourbon
county within the next twoweeks will
be almost completed. The" work has
been retarded to a great extent owing
to the lack of seasonable weather.
The rains of last week together with
several days of damp atmosphere
brought the tobacco in case, and the
strippers taking advantage of this
rushed their work with all haste. A
number of crops yet remain to be
stripped but these will likely be pre
pared for market in the next two
weeks, and before the opening ot the
sales warehouse in this ciy.
