EditoH Stan ia 1:1 : Mr. F. G.
Sniartt's letter on dairy farming as
published last week is pointing in
the right direction, and I tun glad to
see it, but he failed to represent those
who too part in the discussion of
stock raising at the last meeting of
t he Institute in the spirit of their ar
gument on the subject. Under the
system of farming, feeding, and
management of stock at this time
practiced by our farmers, there was
no profit or gain to them, was the
spirit of the discussion. The ques
tion tor discussion at the next meet
ing. "Economic Feeding," will be
extended to economic production
of food on the farm for stock and the
economy of purchasing foreign food
for this purpose, such as cotton seed,
cotton seed meal, wheat bran, etc.
Will everybody come, give their
experience, and let the subject be
fully ventilated by facts and figures,
that we may arrive at the (ruth on,
the subject. Respectfully,
W. H. Smaktt.

M. B. HARWELL & CO., M Sids Squars. Mi&A Ton,
Washington, Dec. 10. --The De-j
partment of Agriculture proposes to I
introduce an improvement in the I
weather bureau .service. The pre-1
dictions heretofore made were based j
on the observations at S a. m. and !
8 p. in., and were made for the twen- j
ty-four hours from the time the ob-1
servations were taken. These pre- j
dictions were necessarily a little be-!
lated, as it was several hours before
they ould be placed before the pub- I
lie. Those published in the morning j
papers were for a time which had al- j
ready half expired, and for the even- i
ing papers the case was still worse, as
the portion of the time covered had
already elapsed for which the pre
dictions were of the most value. The
proposed improvement consists in
having the predictions in each case
cover the time until midnight of the
next day. When this takes effect,
which will be on Jan. 1 next, the pre
dictions printed in the morning pa
pers will appear early in the day to
which they apply, while those in the
evening papers will be for the day
after. The public will bo informed
on the evening before of the expect
ed weather and will be given an im
proved forecast the next morning if
improvement is needed. By this
plan the neods of the public will be
more fully met.
Sometime since the City Council of
Knoxville passed an ordinance pro
hibiting the sale of fireworks to per
sons living in the city or who would
use them in the city. On Wednes
day a number of merchants, includ
ing the mayor of Knoxville, were ar
rested for violations of the ordinance,
and lined $11.75 each.

A Tree Silver Bill. j
New Yukk, Dec. Hi. According j
to the World it is pretty certain that j
n bill for the free coinage of silver in I
Mime form will pass both the Demo
cratic House and the Republican
.Senate during the present session.
The plan practically agreed upon by
those who will control the matter in
the House, says a Washington spec
ial to the World, is briefly this : "To
stop all purchases of silver by the
(iovernment ; to throw open the
mints to the freo coinage of silver
hereafter to bo produced from Amer
ican mines and to guard against the
unloading of foreign silver upon us
by a system of notification and in
spection similar to that devised for
the guarding of the sugar bounties.
The dispatch also states that Speak
er Crisp has fully decided to make!

on Coinage and that a majority of the
