His headquarters were near the i kitchen door, and no canine 1 visitor dared challenge his j rifcht to the first nor the juciest morsal that was tossed j out.

Among the officers and crews of the boats that have been passing, extreme interest is being manifested in the proposition and effort to get a yacht basin at Southport. Men big in the business of the nation have been promising their hearty support in the undertaking. They say Southport will become a great mid-way stopping point for yachts making the southward trip in the fall and returning northward in the spring. Another source of local interest is the big game fishing off Southport, and the assurance of development, through the publicity medium, among sportsmen. Many luxuriant big game boats that cater to sportsmen are planning to stop at Southport for the summer and cooperate m every way in the development of big game fishing here. The Pilot Covers !
