The Silver Tongued Quartette won "golden opinions," while the exquisite performance on the violin of our own Wiil Henry and Mr. P. O. Ad? ams sent a thrill or pleasure through the entire audience. It is a rare thing that two amateur violinists of such capacity are heard in public at the same time in a town as small as Tazewell. Those who failed to attend the concert missed a great treat; and we congratulate our Episcopal friends on the success of the entertain? ment. Circuit Court.

It is talked that a young doctor and a certain voung lady in the west end will "step oil" very soon.

At this time of the year a cold is very easily contracted, and if left to run its course without the aid of Eome reliable cough medicine is liable to result in that dread disease, pneumonia. We know of no better remedy to cure a cough or cold than Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. We have used it quite extensively and it has always given entire satisfaction.?Olagah, Ind. Ter. Chief. This is the only remedy that is known to be a certain preventive of pneumonia. Among the many thousands who have used it for colds and la grippe, we have never yet learned of a single case having resulted in pneumonia.

London, Dec. 4.?International questions have been temporarily overshadowed by the gravity of the situation in Austria, where tf.e situation is as gloomy as imag? inable. In addition to the imminence of civil war, the next few hours may pos? sibly witness a historic revolution in the relations of Austria and Hungary which means the reconstitution of the map of Europe. The question of the provisional Ausgleich bill (or agreement to prolong for a year, instead of ten years, the compact between Austria and Hungary; pending the pend? ing of arrangements for a longer compact) is, if possible, a question even more grave than the threatened civil war. The Hungarian Diet has given Baron Von Gautsch Von Franenthurn, the Aus t'ian Premier, until .Monday next in which to state whether he can reasonably expect the Ausgelich bill to pass, and failing a de? cisive answer, Baron Banffy, the Hunga? rian Premier, will introduce on Monday a bill whereby Hungary will act independ? ently as regards the duties to be levied, in the course of commercial relations with Austria and the renewal of the charter of the Austro-IIungary Bank. The compact between the two portions of the dual state thus lapses and though the status quo, may be maintained tempo? rarily, Hungary will establish her claim to the right ot independently disposing of these questions. It is easy to see that victory will only whet the Hungarians' appetite and that it will be but a short step to the dissolution of Austria which in turn will hurl Europe into a furnace of terrible possibilities. Apparently the only hope of escape is that the personal ascendency of the old Emperor will once again enable him to solve an apparently impossible solution. Failing in this the Reichsrath will be dis? solved and a reign of absolutism will begin in Austria, and, technically Hungary will j have resumed her independence. NOW A REALITY. Maxim Says His Airship is a Great Success. Pittsburg, Dec.?The Pittsburg Reduc? tion Company has just received another big order for aluminum from the Atlantic aud Pacilic Aerial Navigation Company, at San Francisco.

The ship now weighs about 5,000 pounds, and will carry more than a ton's weight of provisions and passengers. The naptha for the engine will be stored in cases, which will hold enough to drive the ship around the earth without replen? ishing the tanks. The skin of the ship is double and tilled with hydrogen gas. It is confined in seperate compartments and in the upper part of the vessel and in cones. A tail projects npward from the stern of the ship, which directs its move? ments with its tail. The rudder changes the course from right to left. Motive power is secured by the big aeroplane at the stern, which is driven by the naphtha engine. A speed of 100 miles an hour has been attained. It is statec in the letter that an alumi? num airship sent out by the company went from San Francisco to Cleveland in three days. The Reduction Company officials say the red and green lights seen in the West last summer was this ship. Mr. Maxim says his company has now passed the secret experimental stage and will build a number of ships. WILL RESUME WORK. Four Big Enterprises Start Up in the Town of Buena Vista. Lynchburg News: A well known resi? dent of Buena Vista who was in the city the other day, stated to a reporter of the News that two fine manufacturing estab? lishments of that place would begin oper? ation at once, after having been idle for a long time. About three hundred oper? atives will be employed. The plants re? ferred to are the Buena Vista iron furnace and the Buena Vista Cassimere Mills. The furnace, which has a capacity ol one hundred and twenty tons of pig irou per day, will be under the management of Mr. T. Catesby Jones, a former well-known resident of Lynchburg, and for several years past manager of the iron furnace at Iron Gate. Mr. Jones, it is said, will have control of both furnaces, but will in all probability remove with bis family to Buena Vista this gi ves employetnent to a large number of men, including many expert machinists. The cassimere works will be under the management of Mr. Ambrose Timberlake, and will employ about one hundred operatives, mostly women. A number of large contracts have been secured from the United States Government. From all accounts there are enough orders in sight to keep the mills running for some time to come. MARTIN THORN SENTENCED. To Die in the Week Beginning January I0th-As Cool as Ever. New York, Dec. 3. Martin Thorn, of Torceswisky, convicted on Monday of the murder of Willian Guldensuppe, was today sentenced to be electrocuted in the week begining January 10, 1898. When Thorn was brought into court in Long Island City he stepped as briskly, walking between two oflicers, as he had done on the days when he was on trial. He preserved the same calm, imper? turbable expression of countenance that he had worn at every crisis in the working out of his fate during the trial, and when, as a preliminary to the passing of sentence of death, Justice Maddox put the cus? tomary question to him, he responded promptly, collectively, and without out? ward evidence of emotion. Thorn listened to the sentence without I moving a muscle, and when the Judge had finished he inclined his head slightly for? ward, as if bowing to the court. The prisoner's lawyers then handed up an affi? davit applying for an appeal. Justice Maddox took the affidavit and will pass on it later. Thorn will probably be re-moved to Sing Sing at once.
