Recital of Miss Correll.
On last Friday evening Miss Edith Cor?
rell, pianist, gave a recital in the chapel of
Tazewell College, assisted by Mr. Will
Henry Alderson, violinist.
The chapel was tilled with an apprecia?
tive and music-loving audience, which
greatly enjoyed the different numbers on
the programme, which was as follows:
1. Fantasie, W. A. Mozart.
2. Adagio Sonate, Op. 10, No. 3, L. Van
4. Romanye, 1
Novelette, I R. Schumann.
5. Waltz, F. Chopin.

8. 8th Hungarian Raphsodie, F. Liszt.
It was the lirst time Miss Correll had
been heard in public since she came to
Tazewell; and those who are competent to
judge pronounce her an excellent pianist,
playing with much expression a high or?
der of music. The audience was highly
entertained by Mi.*s Correll and Mr. Al
derson, the latter being too well known to
Tazewell audiences to need any words ol
praise at our bauds.

Dingley Tariff Receipts.
The Irnsing "Journal" questions the
truth of the "Telegraph's" statement that
had it not been for the war the Tariff bill
of 1897 would have produced nearly
enough revenue to run the Government
during the last fiscal year, and in fact did
so (outside of war expenditures) during
the last five months of the last fiscal year

war expenses and the total expenses were
This makes a deficit of $44,000,000. And
this is not taking into account the great
loss of revenue during the first six months
of the last fiscal year due to anticipatory
imports. Some estimate this as high as
Treasury officials estimate that outside
of war operations the Tariff of 1897 from

Salting: Cows Reffnlarlr.
Now that cows are turned out to
pasture, care should be taken to give
them regular supplies of salt. The
best way is to place some rock salt in
a sheltered place where they can lick
it at will. Some salt is found by analy?
sis In milk. It is a curious fact that so
long as the calf's food is chiefly milk
it has no craving for salt. This crav?
ing begins when the calf begins to
eat grass and other vegetables, aM of
?which require some salt to aid in their
digestion. Cows that are salted only
Irregularly give less milk than they
should, and -what they do give fur?

Lime for Mill* Preserving.
Some of the Chicago papeTs com?
plain, and with reason, against the
practice of a few farmers in putting
lime in their milk cans in order to keep
the milk from souring. Salt also is
used by some for the eame purpose^
Both lime and salt are alkaline, and
will therefore help to prevent acld
fity. But in just the proportion they
do this they make the milk Indigesti?
ble. When put in the stomach milk
?becomes acid as the first step towards
digestion. All alkaline Bubstances are,
vfor this reason, Injurious when com?
bined with food products.?American
Cost of Corn Production.
According to a bulletin issued by the
Illinois experiment station, and based
upon the figures furnished by 316 corn
growers, it cost 19.5 cents per bushel
and $10.50 per acre to produce corn in
Illinois in 1896. These figures do not
represent the cost of growing merely,
but are based upon the average sum
of the expenditures on all the process
Involved in production, from the prep?
aration of the eoil to the delivery of
the corn at the elevator.

ABOUT FODDER CORN.
Aa Ensilage Pit, This Writer Thinks,
Is Its Proper and Most Prollt
With present knowledge of the
profits of winter dairying it hardly
pays to put surplus cornfodder into
shocks to be cured. An ensilage pit
Is its proper destination, as thus the
fodder next winter can be made to
yield you twice the amount of milk
that it would if fed in dry state.
I am well acquainted with an ener?
getic progressive dairyman who raised
one of the finest fields of fodder corn I
ever saw grow. Ue had heavily ma?
nured his land to start with, and then
cultivated the growing corn so assidu?
ously that It had all developed into
strong, vigorous canes. He fed out
perhaps a third of this noble field be?
fore frost threatened, and then to my
surprise cut and shocked the remain
dor for drj- feeding in winter. By so
doing, instead of converting it into en?
silage, he lost at least 50 per cent, in its
feeding value, as viewed from a possi?
ble milk-yielding standpoint. It wa6
an illustration of a dairyman being
partly wise and partly foolish.
I earnestly enjoin all dairymen not
to waste their cornfodder this fall.
There is too much good milk enca&ed
in every stalk and leaf, which needs
only intelligent, economical feeding
to conduct it kito the milking pail.
Many people have an unwarranted
prejudice against ensilage-produced
milk on account of its flavor. If they
would nerate their milk thoroughly,
as all milk should be treated anyway,
this objoctionable flavor would be
largely if not entirely eliminated.
Do not let a question of possible milk
flavor deter you from putting your sur?
plus corn fodder down in ensilage.?
Oeorge E. Newel!, in Ohio Farmer.
Morning; and Evening; Milk.
Two milkings should not be put to?
gether under any circumstances till
both are cooled. If the warm morn?
ing's milk is added to the cold night's
milk, and both taken together to the
creamery in the same can, the milk
will most assuredly be In bad condi?
tion when it reaches the separator.
The canse of the bad condition Is of
course the same as given above, lack of
cooling and aeration before starting;
but the action seems to be Intensified
by placing warm milk In with the cold.
This seems to be due to the fact that
in every case bacterial formation will
have established itself In the night's
milk, and the addition of the warm
milk Increases the growth of these un?
desirable elements very rapidly.?

line. Why? Because I have moved here
to make this my home if you will
give me a living, and think 1 am worthy
to become a citizen of your town and
county. If so, I trust you will give me
your patronage, if 1 can sell you goods as
cheap or cheaper than you can buy else?
where. If not, 1 can't expect you to buy
from me. Give me a trial and see. It is
my purpose to keep on hand an assort?

Collar Pads, Horse Blankets, Lap Robes,
Whips and Lashes, Spurs, Leggins &c. In
fact, everything usually kept in a first
class shop. So if you want a good hand
made job of work I want to furnish it, and
if you want factory work I want to furnish
that also. Should I fail to have in stock
what you want I can furnish on very short
notice and at right prices, too. Thanking
you xindly who have patronized me so
liberally since I've been here, I am
