ISA i in mm ORDER TO REMOVE TELEPHONE POLES Board of Mayor and Aldermen Is sues Mandate. The Board of Mayor and Aldermen at the meeting last Tuesday night took up the telephone proposition again and finally deciJed, after some discussion of the subject, to reduce the matter simply to enforcing its demand for the removal of the poles downtown and better service in a general way. Mr. White, from the Business Men's Club, came before the board, and reported that that body bad disagreed with the proposition made by the telephone company, offered to the people of Union City and published in the papers a few weeks ago. lhisjirop osition, they find, has some of the ear marks of a subtle move on the part of the Cumberand Company to enmesh our citizens into an agreement that will im pair our rights under the present fran chise. Attorney Miles was present and explained the legal aspects of the mat ter. He stated, in substance, that the Telephone Company was seeking to bind the Board of Mayor and Aldermen and the citizens of Union City into an agree ment, which would place the Bailroad Commissioners between us and our rights granted under the charter and thereby disable us in legal - procedure under the charter. A motion followed that the board proceed to enforce its demand for the removal of the telephone poles from First street between Harrison street and the N., C. & St. L. Railway, from Washington street between the court house and First street, and from Church street between Second street and the de pot. . Mr.' Adams asked to know where the poles were to be placed, and this brought up another question, whether in the side streets or under ground. The Board then came to the conclusion that they might as well begin the un derground work now as to wait in definitely to take this step. According ly a motion was made to enforce the removal of the v poles from the streets aforesaid and have them placed under ground, and that the offices of the Cum berland Telephone and Telegraph Com pany in Union City and in Nashville be notified in writing by the Recorder at once that the work outlined must pro ceed within thirty days. Embodied in this motion was also a demand for bet ter service. , The Board also decided to Lave some concrete walks made where the owners agree to settle with contractors for the work. These walks, however, are to comply with the city specifications. Reports from the Water and Light Committee and tho Superintendent in regard to improvements of the plant were made. It is proposed to enlarge the plant so that it will take care of in creasing demands for the period of twen ty years and this will incur an expendi ture of-$20,000 or thereabouts. This was deferred until correspondence could be bad with a consulting engineer. Chautauqua for Hickman. Hickman, Ky., Feb. 17. Hickman will have a Chautauqua this summer, the contract being made with Hugh Wilson, agent for the Redpath Chau tauqua Bureau, of Chicago. The citi zens were very enthusiastic over pros pects of having a cbautauqua here this year, and the money required to sign up with this concern to insure thair coming, or rather a guarantee, which amounted to $800, was gotten up in a ery few minutes, the whole deal being put over in about an hour and twenty minutes. No date has been set yet for this event, but it will be held cither in the latter part of June or the first of July. Among the number will be Gov. Joe Folk, of Missouri, Geo. L. McNutt, known as the dinner-pail man, Dante's celebrated band of 25 pieces, Bolander's six-piece orchestra and many other well known cbautauqua celebrities. The chautauqua will last five days. Caught in Chain. Hickman, Ky., Feb. 17. Tom Wil liams, of this city, bad a miraculous escape from death to-day in Veneer Mill here, when he got caught in a con veyor chain, which handles the trash to a big shredder. He went down under the conveyor to remove a chunk that hid hung the conveyor, and as he did so, another big batch of trash came diwn on him, the conveyor also starting again and hemming him down and dragging him along, and practically every bit of the clothing he had on was torn off, heavy overalls, ueayy under wear and even his shoes were torn off his feet. The remarkable thing of it all was that he was not hurt at all, other than a few bruises. The conveyor dragged him 50 feet before they could stop it. . STOCK FARMING. Advantage of the Silo and Ensilage ' in Feeding. BY J. N. MERONEY. The growing and feeding of cattle on the farms of Tennessee should have more attention, for there is a very prom ising future for this line of farm work. The free cattle range of the Western prairies is now a thing of the past. Cheap beef was produced in that way but cannot be done any more, so the farms must produce the beef for the future as they have always produced the dairy stock. The present remunerative prices for both beef and dairy products promise to be maintained in the future because the demand is constantly growing, while tho supply is falling behind. To any thinking man there is much tq encourage the growing of cattle on the farm. Tennessee is highly favored by nature for this line of business for the farmer. The mild and short winters, the long growing seasons, the rich pas tures of bluegrass and lespedeza, never failing streams of running water on al most every farm are some of the ad vantages nature gives Tennessee. Our population is increasing very fast. The towns and cities are growing out of all proportion to the country. The peo pie of the cities must be fed. It is the farmers' business to feed them and ha should arrange his methods of agricul ture with a view to that fact. He can grow and feed cattle on the farm at a good profit if he studies his business. He must have a good grade of cattle and he must feed them economically; prepare for his business bo as to get the most out of it; feed what he grows on the farm to the cattle and by returning the manure to the land tie will at the same time improve the fertility of his farm, so he can hold both ends of the rope. To feed live stock on the farm eco nomically the use of the silo is indis pensable. By its use he can almost double the feeding value of his corn crop. He-can make ten acres if planted in corn for the silo worth as much in feeding value as twenty acres fed out as dry food. So then he does need to cul tivate so many acres to grow the neces sary food and is able to keep more of his farm in grass and pasture, resting it up, so that when it comes into its reg ular rotation' he will get larger yields to pay him for his labor and year after year produce more per acre of what ever crop he may plant. The silo is no longer an experiment but a well established fact and should be used on every farm because of its a a . .1 . 1 economy. Anu lortunateiy tney are within the reach of the small farmers as well as the large ones, because tbey can be built of different material and different sizes and with a wide range iu the cost of construction. The con crete silo is the most lasting, but its cost of construction places it out of reach financially of many small farm ers. The patented factory built stave silos are more generally used and give good results, but some' small farmers fear the cost of even these, but they need not be cut off from the use of silage and its benefits because of silo cost, for they can build their own round stave silos on the farm for about one third the cost of the factory built struc ture that will answer their purpose just as well. A fifty-ton silo can be built by the farmer himself for about one dollar per ton capacity. One suchns now in use in Maury County that has been filled and fed out twenty years; has al ways made good silage and has paid for itself every year. Fifty tons pf good silage will feed twenty head of beef or dairy cattle the whole winter and can be filled from five acres of fairly good corn land and makes a cheap, healthy and satisfactory cattle feed. The best crop to grow for silage is one of the prolific varieties of corn. A kind that grows a tall stalk, bearing from two to six small ears to the stalk, and if cow peas are planted with the corn and (the mixture put into the silo together it is made more valuable. This crop of corn and peas can be grown very successfully in Tennessee- as a second crop after harvesting a crop of clover, hay, wheat, oats or rye. If planted by the 25th of June it can safely be stored in the silo before frost . The corn should be put into the silo when the grains are beginning to dent, when just a little too hard for table use. Tt ia then at its best feeding stage. It should be put in fresh from the field, cut up fine and well packed by tramp ing all the time while filling. It can not be cut too fine or packed too close. It should always be fed off from the top. A few inches feed off the top everv dav will keep that below from moulding and there wills be very little loss. All kinds of stock are fond of good silage, but it is the cheapest of all cattle feed. n JR. T.
