TBK LOGAN Iii:AZIER.
BY THOMAS DUNK KKOLI8B.
At dawn to where the horboge grows
Up yonder hill the grazier goes.
Obedient lo his every word,
Before him stalk the lowing herd.
Reluctant in Hie misty morn,
With stamping hoof *nd tossing horn,
With lengthened low and angry moan,
Go black and dappled, red and roan.
Through drain and hollow, up the hill
They pass; obedient to his will.
The slender ox und mighty bull?
The grazier thinks them beautiful.
You see lest beauty in the herd,
Thoniln yon orange-tinted bird:
You youT better pleased gaze
On yon broad sweep of emerald maize,
Yon maples <>n the hill side high,
Or on yon field of waving rye.
More pleased with maize, or rye, or trees?
The grazier's sight is not on these.
ii< sees a netted purse of gold,
in every bellowing three-year-old.
IK cos new comforts round his home,
W i;, ;i buyers down froiuTazcwell come.
Ii* Res his cabin nigh the creek,
[ti m?d daubed chimneys changed to brick,
Its rode logs hid by clap-boards sawed,
Split shingles on its roof so broad;
New puncheons on the worn out iloor
A pieket fence before the door,
And cups of tin ami plates ol dclf,
And pewter ^i>oons. adorn the shelf.
Close where the rille hangs on hooks,
On cupboard lop me rows of books?
The Pilgrim of the dreaming John,
And Weenfs life of Marion;
The well-thumbed speeches of Calhoun,
The pictured life of Daniel Boonq;
J>'.\:ibi::ne'- -lory told so well,
SOW Lather fought and Cranmor foil;
To please bis wife a yellow gown,
Ami beads to deck hi) daughter's brown.
A jack-knife for his youngest son,
A rifle for his oldest one.
All these to him ihe cattle low,
As .:p the hill they slowly go.
He fears no ravage of disease,
Mong brute- so strong and fat as these.
There's s-ilt enough for them in store.,
Brought from Kanawha's muddy shore.
The herbage on the hill is good,
The fern i- thiek within the wood.
There'- tender grass in yonder drain,,
And pea-vine on the summ.it plain.
High thought of gain that moment thrills
The grazier of the Logan hills.
He envies not the hero bold,
lie cares not who may office hold.
The statesman's pride, the stout man's limb,
Tlie lover'.- hopes are naught to him.
Bis mind three things alone receives?
His wife, bib children, ahd'hjs Iwcyes."
So these may flourish and be fair,
All else around is smoke and air.
Oh. I.og.m grazier, stout and strong,
Despising fraud, defying wrong;
Brave as thine ancestors who bore
The sea rs of combat long and sore,
And (earless met in battle shock,
The wild and painted Shawanoek.
True as the rifle in thy hand,
And generous as thy fertile land?
Full oil I've eaten by thy side
Thy cakes of corn and venison fried.
Oft in thy cabin as thy gucsf
Have stretched my wcury limbs to rest.
I fove to note thy honest brow,
Staunch friend ?:id true companion thou,
And know no manlier form Is seen
Than dwells within the ccat of jean;
Truth lills those eyes so keenly set
Beneath the fox-skin cap, and yet
I would not that thy lot'wore mine,,
1 v, uiilu not that my lot were thine.
Guard thou thy beeves and count thy Hold,
Be glad when those great herds are sold.
Forme, by midnight lamp, I pore
My manuscript in silence o'er.

It matters not if cattle fair.
Or making songs has btjeu our care.
The poet's and the grazier's form

Shall imss the poet's glowing words,
Shall pass the grazier's lowing herds;
And from men's memory fade away
Both grazier's shout and poet's lay.

Death of an Estimable Lady.
Mrs. J. W. Waldron, wife of Dr. Wal?
dron, of Gr undy, Ya., died at this place
on Tuesday afternoon, at # o'clock, aged
about-JO years. She had been ill since
last Thursday with pneumonia and a com?
plication of diseases. She was a Miss
Gambill previous to her marriage. Her
mother had passed part of the winter with
her, but had left about one month ago.
As it was, none of Mrs. Waldron's rela?
tives were with her when she died bqt her
five children, one an infant ten months
old. She was a member of the Methodist
Church, and by those who knew her, pro?
nounced an excellent Christian woman.
Funeral services were held at the home of
the deceased on yesterday afternoon, con?
ducted by Rev. I. 1'. Martin. The re?
mains were buried at the new cemetery.
Ever since the light between Corbett
and Fitzsimmons took place at Carson
City, some of the 5'oung men of our town
have been very much interested in amateur
athletics, especially the art of homing,
Those who have been indulging in the
exercise decided to have a private enter?
tainment to try their skill, and it came of!
on Tuesday in the old poolroom.
The first contest was between Frank
Kitts and Joe Warden. We don't know how
many rounds they fought, but Kitts knock?
ed Warden out with a foul blow, which
knocked the breath out of him, and tire
contest was given to Warden.
?The second contest was between Modock
ELL, VA., TH?RS
McKenzie and Ed Dodd. This was r
pretty lively match from what we car
learn. We haven't been told the numbei
of rounds, but the fight was awarded tc
McKenzie, Dodd being forced to thow up
?the sponge on account of a badly broken
The third contest was between Lewis
Brittain and Will White. It was a pretty
lively scrap, but was decided a draw.
White is now wearing a-pretty black eye
as a sign of the contest.
The fourth ami last contest was between
"Big Chap" and "Pie Eater," gentleman
of color. "Pie Eater" couldn't stand up
before "Big Chap, and suffered an in?
From what we can learn interest in the
manly sport has greatly abated since the
above encounters came off, broken thumbs,
black eyes and loss of breath being great
deterrents. Those who participated are
not likely to try it again, and others will
profit by their experience.
Oo You Want Good Bread?
If you want to enjoy good health you
ought to eat good bread. To have good
bread, you must find the right kind of a
mill, that uses a tine quality of grain, with
a miller that understands his business. A
great deal of the fancy (lour that is brought
here from the West is pretty to look at,
makes beautiful white bread ,but the health
and strength giving elements are lacking.
The C. A. Fudge roller mill, run by the
Tazewell Dairy and Milling Company, is
splendidly equipped, and is turning out
the finest quality of Hour and meal. The
wheat and corn used are of the highest
grades and but one grade of Hour is made,
which is called the "Straight Grade"
flour. It combines or retains all the food
or nutritious properties of the grain. We
have tried this grade of dour, and do not
hesitate to pronounce it excellent. The
Fudge mill has a capacity of ol) barrels of
flour a day, and can grind 10 bushels of
corn an hour. Mr. R. H. Ireson is in
charge of the mill, and is assisted by his
father, Col. R. C. Ireson, who is the vet?
eran miller of this section. The flour and
meal ground, are. sold principally for local
consumption, but some shipments are made
to Bluefield and other points. If you want
good bread you can certainly have it,if yon
get your flour and meal at this mill, and
cook it properly.
Harman & Bottiinore are now showing
a fine stock of spring clothing for men
and boys, medium and fine grades, and j
scores of styles. You will be astonished
when you see the beautiful suits they are
selling and are told the prices.
3DAY, APRIL 1, I
i Tlic Logan Grazier.
i We have come into possession of a copy of
? a poem,"The Logan Grazier,"which is from
i the pen of Dr. Tlios. Dunn English, and
was published in the Richmond Enquire
in the early fifties, about 1852 or 1853,
Dr. English is the author of a number of
beautiful poems, among them "Ben Bolt."
At the time "The Logan Grazier" was
written he was passing a part of his time
in Logan County,Virginia, now West Vir?
ginia, and was well acquainted with the
men ami mode of life then found in that
section. The poem is descriptive of those
men, their habits and thoughts, and is
full of beautiful word-painting and gems of
thought. Dr. English was well known in
laze well County at that peroid, and some
of the older inhabitants remember him well.
On a certain occasion it was determined to
have a Fourth of July celebration and a
distinguished orator, we believe the Hon.
.Julm Randolph Tucker,bad been invited to
bo present to make an address. He had
consented to come, and a 1 irge crowd
assembled in the grove near Dr. O'Keeffe's
house, then the home of Dr. Fielding
Peery. The speaker failed to come and the
managers were at a loss what to do. Some
one suggested that a mamby the name of
Thomas Dunn English was in the crowd
and that he aught be induced to act as a
substitute. He was called upon, and in his
hunting suit of Logan County jeaus, he
took the stand and thrilled the audience
with the sentiments of a patriot, couched
in the beautiful words of the writer and
We publish The Logan Grazier o.n this
page, and know it will be read with
pleasure by our readers. Dr. English is
still alive, and resides in.New Jersey, we
believe. A few years ago ho represented
one of the districts of his State in Congress.
