Thursday, March 5, 1953 The Weather We all woke up Monday morning to find that seven inches of snow had fallen during the night. This is Wednesday morning, and the rain is coming down. Things are real slop- py .like. The guess is for freezing temperature tonight. The sun has been out of sight since Saturday, when it was decorated with circles. FIELD NOTES Mrs. Anna Price Sheets, of Bluefield, Arnold Jack and Earl Sharp, of Pearisburg, have kept this editor informed through newspaper clippings as to the progress of the big scale campaign to rid the Burkes Garden region of Tazewell County, Virginia, of a varmint which has cost stockmen an esti- mated twenty-thousand dollars in sheep killed in the past twelve months. Last week the varmint killed its 410th sheep since March 2, 1952. On Monday, February 23, hounds from Arizona were put on the track, and it was shot and killed. It proved to be a coyote, about five years old; weight, 36 pounds. The farmers organization and the County Court of Tazewell finally got busy and made a contract with Lee Brothers, guides and big game hunters, of Tucson, Arizona. The fee for ridding the county of the varmint was $2,500. Lee arrived Thursday week with his pack of four trained varmint hunting dogs. He read the sign as coyote. The first chase was a water haul, called off on account of dark- hess. Then the coyote killed anoth- er sheep on Saturday night. In the hunt on Monday, lyers in wait were properly placed and the coyote was shot and killed at the graveyard stand. Where the coyote came from is a mystery. A few years ago, a coyote was killed on Elk River in our Pocahontas County. It had cost the farmers dearly in sheep. Thirty miles away, over in Bath County, a few years ago a timber wolf was killed. ""fbe Lee family, of Tombstone, Arizona, started from Virginia three generations back. Grandpa went to Texas and his son went on to Arizona, to keep up with the fron- tier. One of the newspaper clippings made mention of the statement by Mr. Lee that he was in communica- tion with citizens of a county near- by to Tazewell in regard to hunting down a Mountain lion which had been killing deer. Without a clue, my wild guess is this panther is in Giles County. Further, I will place him in two wilderness areas of that county, known to us all as Angels Rest and No Business. Omar Kellison, of Boggs Run, has been cleaning up on wildcats. The woods are teeming with coons and the bay lynx have come in unusual numbers, to feed fat on the ringtails. Two of the wildcats taken by Mr. Kellison were so big he looked closely at the black tips of their tails to see if they might be Canada lynx. The latter have solid black tips. However, the varmints were wildcats. They weighed forty pounds and better each. One of the varmints took his killing as we old-timers expect a hay lynx to do--resigned and with- out protest. The other one fought like a wildcat. He broke the trap loose and crawled back in a hole under a cliff. He clawed and bit a stick thrust at him. Then Mr. Kellison cut a blue beech, forked like a shepherds crook. He hooked this comehither around the varmint's neck and hauled it, fight- ing, out into the open. It was so ferocious, he dared to try to lay it out in the usual way with a club. He shot it with his twenty-two rifle. Sweetened Pone This article was brought in by an anonymous gentleman who found this recipe and thought it might be nice to share it with the 'Fifty Years Ago' readers. It was actually print- ed in that section of the newspaper but the date published was unavail- able. Dear Mr. Price: I wish you word have some of the old ladies give you a recipe for old fashioned sweet corn pone baked in an oven before an open fire with red hot coals on the rid, LoRy Pennel 60 years ago, baked some I have never forgotten. The art is about lost. In your boyhood you remember those old oven pones. Get a good recipe and send it out. O. D. M. Columbus, Ohio Here, sir, is the very recipe you have been looking for a long time. It is by the late Mrs. John G. Beard, of the Levels, a famous cook in her day, and recorded in the Presbyterian cookbook. They use it down at our house, and on its strength I go about getting out the Pocahontas Tunes week by week. I have never been quite to the point where I could see my way clear to lay up a pile of rock into an open fireplace, before which a sweetened pone could be properly cooked. However, a fair substitute for a Dutch oven is a tin coffee can, with lid, filled with the proper mixture and baked in a stove oven: Sift 2 quarts of cornmeal and 1-2 pints of flour in a stone crock; add a pinch of salt, pour on boiling water (about 1 1/2 pints), then warm water until a stiff dough is formed, stirring all the time; cover closely with a cloth and let stand over night in a warm room. In the morning add 1-4 pints of buttermilk with 1 teaspoon of baking soda and 2 scant tablespoons of sugar. Bake in an oven before the fire, or it can be baked in pans in the oven of a stove.
