In the Liberal Arts Building nt the National Conservation Exposition at Knoxvillo, there is to be seen the* slowest mov? ing piece of machinery in tin world. This piece of machine? ry forms a part of the wonder? ful astronomical clock on OX hi bitten there. It is a hand such us is seen every day on a com? mon dock, is this piece of mo chinery, but so delicately is tbo machinery adjueted that it takes this hand twenty-nine and one-half years lo make a revolution of tho face of the dial.

Says tlu> Wise County News: It would be to the interest of the general public to have the law so changed or amended ax to give Wise four Commission? ers of the Kevenne instead of two, n? at present.

Chalkley,] made n heroic and manly effort to pass an Act which would have given Wine County two representatives in the House of Delegates. He lost in that light hut in losing he managed to call the attention of the pross and the people of the eastern | part of the < Hd Dominion to the injustice being done tins great| section of Virginia. Should he he returned to Richmond, as we hope and trust he will he, ho can take up the work where ho left off with a hotter chance of carrying it to success than was his chance when a new mom be r in the last Legislature. That the next Legislature, will he overwhelmingly Demo? cratic ill its make up there is and can b o no doubt. M r. Ohalkloy being in harmon* with the political principles of I the majority can do more foi i tllO blisilli'88 welfare of 0 11 f I county and people than a mem? ber of the minority party can even hope to attempt to accom? plish. Then, again. Mr. Chalk . if he should he elected, will | bo entitled to participate in tin majority caucus, and would,| therefore, he in a position t( materially aid in the elevation of Ulbert M. Fulton to n place on tho Supreme Court of Ap peals. v This facti of itself, should be BUflicioht to prompt the voters of Wise and Diekenson Coun? ties to rally to the support of I Mr. Clialkloy and elect him by an overwhelming majority in November, It is needless here, ill the county where Judge Kulten was horn, roared and now lives to speak or write a woril of praise, as he is known to n our people ami honored and ot teemed as a profound lawyer, splendid citizen, and a good | neighbor whose latch string at ways hangs on the outer door ?
