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.
Advantage of the Silo and Ensilage
' in Feeding.
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
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.
