A new comet will be seen

which is of non-pesiodic. or
stray variety, wus discovered
by Prof. Gule, of Sidney Au?
stralia on September Nth. It is
still too far South to be seen in
this latitude, but is traveling
northward, and probably In?
visible in a few days in the
southwestern sky after sunset.
The man who lias been ex
peeling to get a good price for
his vote this year will surely be
disappointed, if tbe agreement
between the candidates ami
their friends is complied with,
and we believe it will he. This
is us it should be, for as we

The Fair Fleet ions Society ,
which was recently Organized
in Bristol, has elected Messrs.
Mayo Cabull, Ohus. Hall, Jr.,
ahd.Oyrus Beam,vice presidents
for Wise county, who under
the by laws of the society, con?
stitute the executive committee
for this county. Coph-H of the
pledge have been sent to the
vice presidents, who will dis?
tribute them and urge all good
citizens in each precinct to sign
the same. It is highly impor?
tant that tbe society should
have ns many representatives
as possible in every precinct.
The oandidatAS for congress
have signed a pledge, as our
readers knows, not to spend
any money in the coming elec?
tion, and it is believed that they
are in earnest and will live up
to their pledge, but they may
have some enthusiastic friends
here und there who will uot
live up to it. The object of tho
society is to prevent any mon?
ey being spent, or any unfair
practice in the election, wheth?
er the candidates and their
friends want to live up to the
agreement or not, and the so?
ciety feels sore that the pur?
pose can be accomplished if the
people will take hold of it, but

As an indication of the im?
provement in coal-mining meth?
ods the statement contained in
tho report on coal, by K, \V.
Parker, now being printed by
tho United States Geological
Survey as an advance chapter
from "Mineral Resources for
101 I," is of interest.
The number of machines used
In mining coal in 1911 was 18
810, an increase of 606 over
1910. The leading coal produc?
ing State, PonnsyIvaina, is al?
so first in the total tonnage
mined by the use of machines
und in the total number of ma?
chines in use; but in the pro?
portion of machine-mined coal
to the total out-put Ohio fnr
outranks all other States. In
It'll Pennsylvania's production
of machine-mined coal was 09,
181,(13 short tons, or 47.70 per
cent of the total. Ohio's pro?
duction of machine-mined coal
was 'J?;,r>f>0,G:t(? short tons, or
to; 38 per cent of the total.
Ohio is third in the production
of machine mined coal, though
ranking fourth in the total pro?
duction West Virginia, the
second State in coal production,
is also second in the output of
machine mined coal, which in
1011 was 20,121,480 short tons,
or 48.07 per cent of tho total.
Illinois is fourth in the quantity
of machine-mined coal, with
23,093,807 short tons.
Although the total production
of bituminious coal in the Unit?
ed States decreased from 117,
111,14'-' short toi.s in 1910 to 40",,
7*7,101 short tons in 1011, the
quantity of coal undercut or
otherwise mined by the UBO of
machines increased from i7i,
012,298 short tons to 177,1171,070
ions. The percentage of the
machine-mined tonnage to the
total Output increused from
41.74 in 1010 to 43.80 in 1911.

Tho sale of the property of
the Dominion Coal Co. has not
been confirmed by the court
and from tho news gathered
hero it seems as if it will be
placed for sale again nt an ear?
ly date It seems that the par
t'ios that bid $60,000 for the
property did not exactly under
stand the terms of the sale, and
now refuse to pay their bid. It
is hoped thai this will lie clear?
ed up at an early date as the
mines are missing a good mar

day that they stand idle.

Through the First National
Bank of Richmond, there came
to the second auditor last week
coupons from some of the fa?
mous "Kendall Bank Note
Company bonds," which were
printed for the State of Virgin?
ia, were rejected, sohl at pub?
lic auction by the express com?
pany to pay charges, and have
since that time been appearing
at intervals for payment.
These coupons came from the
city of Boston, the envelope in
which they were sent bearing
the name of Luther I). Morash,
and were for $00, having been
clipped from one of the bonds
described above being of the
issue o f Kebruory 14, 1882
There were some $432,OOof these
bonds. Kor years they have
been showing up for payment.
When received they are always
marked spurious and are held

If the public highways could
be kept rounded up all tie; year

that after the annual visit of
the supervisor, ruts appear and
there is no way of filling them
up. Hence the good of these
road clubs. Surely a farmer
should he willing to send a
team out on his road for u few
hours once or twice u month.
To round up a road nothing

Virginia Paying Off Old Debt?
Richmond, Vn October 2(1
Under tin; Slat? cy of dis?
posing of the public debt, by
sinking fund method, bonds are
being purchased and retired
with increasing rapidity. Fig?
ures complied by Second Audi
tor Rosewell Page, show that
from Febtiary 1. LOU), up to the
close of business on September
0,1011, the Hoard of Sinking
Fund Commissioners has
bought ami destroyed bonds to
the value of .?f>71,368,78, The
total for Governor Mann's ad
ministration bid fair to be three
quarter of a million dollars.
Inasmuch as the State contin?
ues to draw interest on the
bonds purchased and retired,
the sinking fund grows from
year to year. The appropri?
ations for this purpose, in ac?
cordance with nearly $120,.
a year, and will continue tit
this figure until 10251,
Under the administration of
Governor Tyler, the State
bought bonds to the value of
$1,111,500. For the four y ears
from January l, 1002, to Feb?
ruary l, 1000, during the admin
iteration of Governor Monta?
gue, the purchase were ?203,
000, while during the term of
(inventor SwutlSOU, they were
?506,400. It is recalled that
Governor Tyler found a I urge
balance in treasury when he
came in, while Governor Mon?
tague had none to work with.
Rev..I. M. fatter, the new
pastor at Grace Methodist Epis?
copal Church, South, is one of
the strongest and most populai
preachers ill the Holsten Con?
ference, lie is a young man,
forty three years obi, having
been born in Greene Count}',
Tonn., in 18110, and he was edit
'fated in tho schools and col?
leges of his native Stats. Pro
liter farter, us n preacher, is
evangelical ami logical, and
always interesting. He is a
line organizer and one of the
best pastors in the Conference.
He is full of energy and a good
mixer, lie holds one of the
most responsible positions in
the Churchi being President of
the Hoard of Missions, and is,
perhaps, the best iiifori.I man
on the subject in the Confer?
ence. Mrs. Carter is an ideal!
pastor's wife and a great
Church worker. She was edu?
cated at Centenary EomaleCol?
lege, under tho presidency of
Dr. Sullies, and is a niece of
l>r. I,. L. H. Oarlock. Any con?
gregation that may be so fortu?
nate as to have for its pastor
Rev, J. M. Carter ami his good
wife, who are SO well prepared
to do Christian work, is to he
congratulated.- Bluoftold Daily
The good book says that a
man who does not cure for or
look after the welfare of his
family "is worse than tin infi?
del." This in ti y be applied
with equal force to the man
who takes no interest in the
town which he lives, for in a
very real sense the town in his
home which he shares with the
other poople living in it.
Another illustration of the
value of advertising is vouched
for by the Commissioner of
Pensions. A month or two agoi
it was proposed to give him'
some three hundred extra i
clerks to clear away the tre-l
memloUs masH of pension ap?
plications made under the new
pension law. This was printed
as news, and later stories were
sent out because delay in pen?
sion appropriations still further
complicated t h e s i t u a t i o n.
Bach news dispatch brought
additional applications. '?And
now," says the Commissioner,
"I have more than four thous?
and applications fromevery sec?
tion of the United States for
about two hundred jobs at
$1200 per annum."
Tin1 development of manu?
facturing is proceeding more
rapidly in t h 0 Southeastern
