It made a favorable showing for the management ami reported the following property now on the farm: 27 2-year-old steers, 3 2-year-old heifers, 9 yearling steers, 1 yearling heifer, 12 milch cows, 1 bull, one yoke of oxen, eight calves, 4S ewes, 1 buck, 6 ewe lambs, 3 mules, 1 horse, 1 yearling colt, 1 mule colt, 33 hogs. The stock sold during the fiscal year end? ing the 1st of July amounted to $984.63, which was turned into the treasury. The agricultural products made on farm during the last fiscal year were as follows: 13 stacks of hay, 300 dozen oats, 1S8 bushels threshed oats, 100 dozen rye, 18 bushels threshed rye, 110 bushels potatoes, 8 bush? els beans, 3000 lbs of pork, 1200 bushels of corn and 1 rick of straw. It was ascertained that the co*t to the county of keeping paupers outside the county poor house during the fiscal year was as follows: Clear Fork district. $432.41 Jetfersouville district. 444.06 Maiden bpring district. 793.26 Total.$1669.73 The board then audited all the outstand? ing claims; against the county and fixed the salaries of the county officers for the next two years. i Drs.

A thorough Business course conducted by a competent instructor is what you get at Tazewell College. District Conference. The Tazewell District Conference of the Methodist Church met in the Cove church on last Thursday and closed with the wor? ship of the Sabbath. From the first session the attendance was good. As formerly announced, Rev. J. BjR^ard, who was born and reared in thetfSove, preached the first sermon. The service was one of profound interest, and the interest of the first service continued to the last. The business of the conference was performed with facility and in most perfect order. No time was logt, no inter? est of the church was neglected. We hardly know what to single outas having received special attention since everything received special attention in its proper place. Much was said concerning the duty of our people to assist in spreading the gospel. Some one said that since God has blessed us above almost any place on earth in the beauty and fertility of our lands and in the comfort of our homes, we ought to esteem it a great privilege to transmute our wealth into spiritual blessings for others less fa? vored than we. Dr. Waterhouse struck gold in his edu? cational talk Saturday morning. He looks upon education as a training of the man in all his powers rather than in the single one of mind. The missionary rally on Saturday was a success. We congratulate Pastor Bailey and the good women on their work. Some of the addresses must bear fruit. Sunday was a day of days. Tazewell county and the Cove in particular was at it& best. No better concourse could be found. Socially, morally and intellectually that congregation would be hard to surpass. Dr. R. G. WaterhouBe preached one of his graceful, thoughtful, fluent, forceful sermons in the church at 11 a. m. Rev. Eugene Black preached in the grove at the same hour. Then followed dinDer. And such hospitality as those dinners displayed would be hard to duplicate in the wide world. After every one had eaten to satis f.otion and had rested a season the con? gregation again assembled, this time to hear Dr. Hearon in the house and Presi? ding Elder Frazier in the grove. Both congregations were edified. We were struck with the fact that only one out of twenty preachers was absent. Rev. J. T. Frazier gave most perfect sat? isfaction in the chair. Rev. J. S. French acted as secretary. We think his minutes were the most correct we have ever ob? served. Altogether this was one of the most pleas? ant religious gatherings ever held in the county. No community could haveenterr tained more royally than did the Coye and Liberty. Prayers of the Christian men entertained there will claim God's bless? ing upon them. M. TAZE1 BASEBALL. Marion and Tazewell Teams Cross Bats. SOME GOOD PLAYING But the Marion Boys Suffer Defeat in Two Games. On last Thursday afternoon the Marion baseball team arrived in town to play with the Tazewell team, as scheduled for Fri? day, but the constant rain on Friday pre? vented any playing that clay. The Marion boys consented to stay over and play on Saturday. The first game was played in the morning and resulted favorably to the Tazewell nine, by a score of 14 to 5. The j Marion team did not seem to be in good trim, and did the worst playing we ever] =aw them do in a match game. They failed to profit by their defeat of t he morn? ing and consented to play another game in the afternoon. Up to the 6th inning they kept in the lead, and many were confident they would win; but the Tazewell boys got j an tneir metal and forged to the front, the score standing at the end of the game 17 to ) in their favor. Both games were won by ;he superior base running and fielding of ;he Tazewell team, and the games lost by ;he Marion boys by their deficiencies on ;hose lines. Both games were free from lisagreeable contentions, and the Marion 3oys wen high commendations by their imiable ancTgentlemanly demeanor, if they lid prove easy victims to our boys. Marion vants Tazewell to cross bats with her on ler own grounds, and promises to make hings lively for their visitors. We are informed that the Tazewell boys | lave concluded to furnish them an oppor unily next week. The Marion baseball club, claiming the ihampionehip of Southwest Virginia and iast Tennessee, was defeated here by the Tazewell club last Saturday in a very in eresting game. The playing of the Taze vell boys was very swift at times, but the ,'isitors, with the exception of Rosenbaum ;nd Sprinkle seemed to have an "off day." ihe features of the game were the battery rork of Kelly and Henry for the home earn, the double play of the O'Keeffe M others and Harman and the batting of dull, Rosenbaum and Henry. Mr. Will Steele officiated as umpire with xceptionally good judgment. R. E. H. The following is the score of the first rame: A.B. R. H. P.O. A. E.

This excellent dramatic company is now filling a week's engagement at the town hall. Before coming here it played at Bluefield and Pocahontas, and the press notices at both places were very flattering. Its capability has not been exagerated, and it is pronounced by competent judges the best company that has ever appeared in our town. On Monday night it rendered in excellent style "Michael Strogofl," which is dramatized from Jules Verne's celebrated novel. The story is a thrilling one and the actors all did their parts well, the work of J. S. Garside as "Michael" Percy Warren as "Benjamin Franklin Blunt" and Geo. Warren as Napoleon Boneparte Laidlow" being exceptionally strong. The audience was delighted. On Tuesday nignt "Too Much Married" was presented to a good audience and on last night, "The Mountain Pink," a moonshine, mountain story was played. To night the Company will play "Camille," on Friday night The Fatal Wedding, which is" Lady Audley's Secret "dramatized; and will close its engage? ment on Saturday night with "Ten nights in a Bar Room." A great many persons m the community tiave been anxions to see the temperence ilrama, and we have positive assurances from Mr. Garside that it will be put upon the boards. As we have before stated the Company is a most meritorious one ind deserves a liberal patronage from play ;oer s.

WELL, VA., THURSDAY, AUGUST 12 COMMUNICATIONS. Pounding Mill, Va., August 9, 1897. Mr. Editor: 1 notice in the last issue of the Republi? can a communication signed "Republican Voters." The writer certainly must be under a delusion when he assumes that Mr. Gilleepie is the only native born Republican whose nnme has been mentioned in con? nection with the Ixgislature. He ignores the names of those gallant Republicans, Hons. John G. Watts, Win, G. Young, M. L. Peery and Henry Bowen, Jr. Certainly they are native born. Then, too, he strikes a blow at the young champion down the Clinch, Win. B. Spratt. While he came from a sister county, he cast his lot with us about 8 years ago, and he has made friends of all with whom he came in contact. Mr. Spratt was the unanimous choice of Maiden Spring district two years ago, and as the east end of the county claimed they were entitled to name the man, he, like a true man that he is, gave way. I think, as hundreds of others do, that Mr. Spratt is entitled to the support of KILLED BY AN ANARCHIST. Spain's Prime Minister Meets Death by Assassination. 'LONG LIYE SPAIN!" HE CRIED, Maiden Spring district, ami to the nomi? nation if he will accept it. Let's profit in the future by past mistakes. A hint to the wise is sufficient. Respec.fully, A Republican. Mechanicsburg, Va., August 9, 1S97. Mr. Editor: What is the duty of the true Republican? It is to push forward and make every ef? fort to win, for there is a winning point. The leading Republicans of the State of Va. seem to be drones, and unconcerned. I ask the question, is it that they want the democrats to win?It must be,assuredly. So now republicans the greatest victory is just in fro?r. Gentlemen, and fellow citizens, if you are in deep sympathy with the Republican party now is your time, for the winning point it is at hand. Push forward, there is a chance, there is a hope. It is my opinion there are two many leaders giving things away to the Democratic party. The And Then Perished From the Wounds In? flicted by the Assassin?The Mur? derer Said It Was Vengeance. Madrid, Aug. 9.?Senor Canovas del Castillo, prime minister of Spain, was as? sassinated yesterday at Santa Agueda by an anarchist. The murderer fired three shots one of which struck the premier in the forehead and another in the breast. The wounded man fell, dying at the feet of his wife, who was with him, linger | ing an hour in agony, and then passed away crying "Longlive Spain," which were the last words upon his lips. Santa Agueda is noted for its baths. It is between San Sebesdan, the summer residence of the Spanish court, and Yitlo ria, the capital of the province of Alava. The premier went there last Thursday to take a three weeks' course of the baths, after which he expected to return to San Sebastian to meet United States Minister Woodford. The assasin was arrested soon after the shooting. He is a Neapolitan, and gives the name of Rinpaldi, hut it is believed by the police that this is an assumed name and that his real name is Michele Angino Colli. The murderer says he killed Senor Canovas "in accomplishment, of a just vengeance"' and that the deed is the out? come of a vast anarchist conspiracy. He is believed to have arrived at Santa Agueda the same day as the premier, and was frequently seen lurking in the pas Democratic party knows very well if their; eages of the bathing establishment in a inside work was exposed to the world that suspicious manner. democracy would be very slim.

We : will not be able to give our readers an ac . count of its proceedings until our next is : sue. It is a safe prediction to say that J. j H?ge Tyler will be nominated for governor j by acclamation. Who will be the nomi? nee for lieutenant-governor is uncertain. I Capt. Coeke, the nominee of the Popu j lists, wiil be urged by a few, but he is not ! likely to be selected. The death of Attorney-General R. Tay i lor Scott will make things somewhat un , certain as to who will be nominated for that place. We are inclined to think that Mr. A. L. Montague, of Danville, will be the man named. The platform on national questions will j be a rehash of the Chicago platform, with, perhaps, some of the anarchism left out. A Remarkable Cure of Chronic Diarrhoea. Iii 1S62, when I served my country as a private in Company A, 167th Pennsylva? nia Volunteers, I contracted chronic diar? rhoea. It has given me a great deal of trouble ever since. I have tried a dozen different medicines and several prominent doctors without any pei maneut relief. Not long ago a friend sent me a sample bottle of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diar rhcea Remedy, and after that I bought and took a 50-cent bottle; and now I can say that I am entirely cured.
