Throe Months, Kntorcd according t" |k>sIaI resolutions st tho post -nOlco at HIr Stone Gap as sec? ond-class matter. subscribers nro earnestly re? quested to observe tho tlnto printed on their address slips, which will koep theui nt nil times postod ns to tho dato of the expiration of their sub? scription. Prompt and timely attention to this request will save all parties a great deal of annoyance. The Wliimsicall Thug. Retween one and two million Kreuch soldiers have boon kill? ed during the war, ami over nine hundred thousand of the British; And as evacuation proceeds on the edge of Flanders the Germans enter the houses of villagers and destroy the intri? cate mechanism of the luce making mnchiua which yield them a livelihood, The Potsdam maniac is debit? ed with both the foregoing items in his account. The former looks the more portentous, but there is a special significance in the luttor. As a contribution to war activity lace ranks at zero. The villagers who made it will probably be employed in munition shops at present, and. if anything, the allied cause will gain a little thereby. But only a little. Economically,the whole incident i- unimportant. And therein lies its real Im? portance. I lost ruction is by this lime an instinct with the Prussian command, to com maud, to be practised even when no military advantage ncci in-:-. It is done mechanical? ly? a 1 m o s t unconsciously. These wantoll cruellies cause grief to the owners of the ma. chines, but no detriment to the allied armies. The sheer clumsiness of these acte of malice enable us to see a little futher into the enemy's character, but only a little fur tfior than, we have already seen Now that talk of a peace con feronce is in the air it is fort tin ate thai we are familiar witii the intimate peculiarities that characterize those who seek re? conciliation with us. We are less likely to uccepl promises without guarantees The election for senator and congressman will be held next Tuesday, the fifth of November. There will only be two names on tin- ticket. For Bonetor Thomas s. Martin and for re presenttitive 0. Bascoin Klomp. So fui as we have heard any expression from both democrats und republicans the ticket will be voted solid without change, recognizing the meti who have sbod squarely by the president in the projection of the war. The people who love to pay over $12,00 for their shoes will have that privileg until after the first of next dune. They bud better take tin- advantage of their opportunity. And now sutlragists are pick eiing the Senate. President Wilson doubtless offers the sen? ators his heartfelt condolences. The destiny of Germany is either one thing or the other. She will certainly be in peace or in p'eces soon. Tho saying "few die and none resign" does not apply in lief, many. Many are living at the front and resignation seems to be the favorite occupation, in iu official circles. si-oo ,BO .25 Chairman of Christmas Roll Call Committee Appointed Big Stone Gap, Va..

R. A. AYERS, Chairman. Vaccine State Health Board Mails Samples to Virginia Doctors. Richmond, Va . Oct. 20.?It is the concensus of opinion among Kichmond physicians that the puuemonin prophylac? tic vaccine made by l>r.

(VII farmers interested in plant? ing good Boed oorii m xt year will remember the critical situ ation as to good Bced corn last spring. Owing to tin- large ucrdgo of corn that has been frost bitten :his fall, there will undoubted: ly be a large amount of soft ami immattire eorn cribbed with the Bound grain ibis winter. This makes it absolutely necessary that farmers should save out their host seed corn when shuck big and store it where it will dr> out well before freezing weather. If eorn that is not well dried out is exposed to freezing tein | perutures, the germ is damaged very greatly and if planted will result in a poor stand. There are several good meth? ods of storing seed corn, such as the seed corn tacks, the wire and I he twisted siring methods (Any or all of these methods will he explained in detail on nppication to the Agronomist of the (extension Division). Tbc main point in curing seed corn is to arrange the individ? ual oars in such a way that the air will have free circulation about them. The beet place to select seed corn is from the standing stalk, but that chance has gone for this year, so the next best op? portunity is at shucking time Don't fail to do tli.is it will save you time and lnhor next spring.
