A Bristol. Tenn., special to the Dis
patch says: Charlie Rector and a boy
named Morris, is exploring a cave near
Seveti-Mile-Ford, Va.,- thirty miles
east of this place yesterday dicoveied
two skeletons, forty feet below the
surface. The caye had long been
known, but no one had ever ventured
to explore it. because of its great depth.
The Morris boy was let down by a
rope. Whcu the find was reported a
party of citizens went to the cave to
investigate farther. Iu all, ten skele
tons were takeu out, aud were adjudg
ed to be bones of men, women and
childreu. One skeleton was found in
a sitting posture, with the skull re
cliuing on tho arms, which were folded
across the knees- . Thus far there is
but one way of accounting for the
carnel house. Old citizens say that
liiany yearjs ago there was au iiin kept
liear this cave by a man named Allen,
and that occasionally people who stop
ped there had mysteriously disappear
ed aud were never again heard of. The
supposition is that they were killed in
this inn, robbed of their valuables aud
then consigned to the cave. Some of

The North Carylina agricultural ex
periment station shows that there is
great loss in the present method of
pulling fodder and leaving the stalks
to rot in the field. Nearly, one-half
ol the total value of the corn plant is
st by pulling fodder according to the'
present plan. The simplest way to
get the-most food out of the corn crop
is to cut close to the ground with
short handled hoe at about the time I
the fodder vvouid be pulled, and cure I
in a silo. Lackincr the silo, cut th
corn in the same a few days later, or
about the time fodder is generally
pulled, and shock in the field.
