franklin Press April 13. ? Last
Tuesday night local officers received
fl tip that a fleet of whiskey laden
fars wore headed this way from
Rabun County, Georgia, supposedly
carrying a cargo of liquid joy to
Asheville. Armed with search war
rants, Sheriff Alex Moore and City
Marshall, R. M. Coffey stationed
themselves at the iron bridge across
(he Little Tennessee river at Frank
lin. Along about ten o'clock the first
ear, a sevefi-passenger Buick, camc
along, hitting the hig spots toward
Asheville. Upon being halted by the
oflieers, eleven ten gallon kegs of
liquor were found neatly packed in
the rear of the car. The officers
took possession of the car and con
tents, and the two men occupants of
the front seat were lodged in the
county jail.
Returning to the bridge with the
confiscated car, the officers waited
for sonio time for the rest of the
party, but they failed to show up for
several hours. Becoming suspicious
that perhaps the ocoupants of the
other cars had been tipped off in
some way that the officers were
looking tor them, Sheriff Moore and
his party headed out the Georgia
road to see if they could find ef?y
trace of the balance of the party.
A few miles out, near the Morrison
School, they mot the first car, and
while they were searching it and
putting the occupants under arrest
the headlights of two other cars
were seen approaching at a rapid
speed. The drivers of these ear?, as
soon as they saw that the front car
had b^en halted, tuitied aroivid j;nd
beat it back up the road, taking to
side roads as they came to them.
Sheriff Moore stated that he followed
these cars, but before he eould over
take any of them, he began to meet
them coming baek, one at a tinu-.
A search failed to reveal any liquor
in any of them, but he held the oc
cupants, and following the tracks
to where they had turned around, he
found sevt|t mfcre t*fe*gaMorra
of liquor that had Keen thrown out
into the bashes.
All told, six men and one woman
were taken in custody and brought
to the conntv jail, while one other
woman occnpant of one of the cars
made good her escape. Two Buick
seven -passenger touring car's, one
Dodce touring, and a brand new
Hupp Roadster were taken, and are
now in the hands of the officers.
Brys'lh City Times, April 13. ? It is
reported that tho Mont Vale Lumber
Company with a plant at Fontana
and Main 0 cc3 in Philadelphia,
hare discovered a rich copper mine
on their holdings on Eagle Creek in'
this county and that they have al
ready started prelirr'i r.ry operation.'
toward the development of the in
dustrv. A small force of workmen
with hand drills are at work and it
is stated that they have driven a
shaft seven feet into the vein and
the deposit shows to be exceedingly
rich and that the copper is of splcn
did qnality. This outcropping is n
different locality from the famous

The democrats will have a full
town ticket in the field in the munici
pal election to be held the first Mon
day in May, instead of following the
usual rule of agreeing upon a mixed
ticket, it was decided at a democratic
mass meeting at the Masonic hall,
Monday evening. After the decision
was reached to put a ticket in the
hold, the following ticket w^ nn?"
wated by the meeting: W. R. Sherrill,
Mayor, D. M. Hall, R. C. Allison, H.

It i& definitely been {nnou^iced
that plans for the erection o fa neW

tured to the extent that sufficient
capital has been assured for the pro
ject, if a small amount of stock can
be sold to the citizenship of the
Those backing the proposed hotel
state that they are not anxious to
make the investment if private in
dividuals intend to erect a modem
hotel, but that f no individuals are
going to do so, that they will put up
the major portion of the capital nec
essary to assure Sylva a new hotel
of the most modern type.
With the burning of the Com
mercial Hotel, last week, the necessity
for a hotel for Sylva has become
imperative, and there is no doubt
that a modern hotel, backed by the
citizenship of Sylva would prove to
be a great asset to the town and to
the county.

DAILY BUS LINE * ? -v-v , ^
The Jackson County Bus Line has
purchased two Hudson touring cars,
and has inaugrated daily schedules
from Cullowhee, Sylva and Dillsboro
to Asheville and return, which will
doubtless prove of great value to the
people of Jackson County, having
business in Asheville and intermedi
ate points, and wishing to make con
nections with Southern railway trains
out of Asheville, to points, South,
East and West.

\To tl)oSo tv -tyIs refer to s"methi;ng
entirely different. But what else
Uu i.v iv liwmgly express what id
in mind!
Here i" the circumstance: When
von are in t!>e most attractive part of
SvJvi and vour attention is attracted
by the newly-painted house just
wuth of the Methodist Church, take
notice that that house is a parsonage
where a very happvMethodist preach
er's family resides. Yes, verily it is
a parsonage, : I id a preacher lives
there. If he should appear a little
"'ic^tv walking about remember
'there's a reason'.
That is the fact that shows, but
there is a story back of it. Mr. Ford
King decidcd that a dingy wcathcy
beaten house was no place for a
preacher to live, r.nd said to the
ladies "Get some paint and I'll put
>n". Mrs. M. Buchanan and Mrs.
Carrie 'McKee sr. id "We'll get the
paint". Afid the kind-heart ed folks
who popped, looked and loosened
know how thev got the paiht. And the
preacher's family had nothing to d<
know how they got the paint. An-'
but smile while the whole houso was
getting white right over their head
But they ask that it be made pub' V
through this note that they feel the
church has done a beautiful and ""ery
much neededi thing. They want it
said that they tliank every one who
gave time, labor or motney to dress
the parsonage in white.
Tt should have been said in tb?*

April 8th by a rising vote expressed
their admiration for the work of the

Raleigh, N". C. April 26. ? " A hen is
always i?n a laying condition when
she goos broody and if this con
dition is broken up at oace she will
almost immediately go back to lay
ing. If she is allowed to remain on
the nest for several days, however,
the ovary and oviduct will gradually
recede to a dormant condition and
several weeks of production by this
htyi will be lost at a time when eggs
are most needed. One should begin
breaking up the broody condition at
onee by placing the hen in a specially
constructed broody eoop, says Dr. B,
F. Kaupp, in chargo of poultry In
vestigations for the Stato College and
Experiment Station.
Dr. Kaupp states that a good
broody eoop can be made from laths
Blatted on all sides including the bot
tom. This eoop can either be placed
on legs or hung from a tree. By
placing the hen in such a coop jusr
as soon as she begins to cluck, and
remain on the jnest, and by watering
and feeding her grain and laying
masli, Dr. Kaupp finds that she will
start to lay again within three or
four days. She can than be returned !
to the la j ling house. , !
Dr. Kaupp advises that as soon as ;
the hen is placed in the broody coon, 1
she should be fed at once so as to
have a chance to absorb the yolks
that are developing in the ovary. By
having the bottom of the coop slat
ted the hen cannot hover and soon
gives up the tendency to broodi.ness.
If the hen is left on the nest or if
she is not fed properly she will re
absorb the eggs which are already
developed so that the care, water
ing and feeding must be done right.
Throwing the hen off the nest, dip
ping her in cold water, or not feed
ing her, is abuse only and will not
broak her up, says Dr. Kaupp. This
will often cause trouble. With the
assistance of the broody coop and
plenty of feed, the hen begins to lay
even before she is removed from the
coop. A financial loss will thus be
