Buy Your Gifts At Home
AT least one. experience this season has been
that, after visiting . Asheville and the display
of Christinas goods in the shops, this person came
home to Franklin; and found everything desired for
gifts in the well stocked stores right at home.
Not in the same quantity as big city stores, but
in well selected and best quality of merchandise in
great variety, the Franklin stores offer all that the
average citizen could desire. In addition, the same
goods are found in many . instances to be lower in
price for the identical article. Add to this the ex
pense of a trip to Asheville or Atlanta, with the
physical weariness and time consumed, Mr. and
Mrs. Citizen, and you will find more satisfaction
in buying from your friends and neighbors who,
one way, and another, contribute to your prosper
Franklin is a good town to live 'in, so please
stand by your home merchants, and help make for
all "A Happv Christmas and a Prosperous New
Buy Christmas Seals
17E know that the Christmas seal is not good
" for postage but that in every other way it
is good for the man who buys it and puts it on his
letters; for the clerk who cancels the letters with a
glad thought for little children with every whack;
for the postman who delivers it with a smile as
broad and as good as Christmas itself, and last of
all for the annals of history, the nation-wide cam
paign against tuberculosis."
We quote this from that now famous-letter that
introduced the Health Seal to America. It is worth
repeating from our health nurse's' excellent article
in last week's Press. .
Your Christmas mail carries added joy with the
seal on it. Buying Christmas Health Seals makes
you one of the army fighting under the sign of the
double-barred cross against man's enemy, Tuberculosis.
HTHE beaytiful custom of Christmas, baskets is
one that makes Christmas happier for the
giver as well as the recipient.
Throughout our land the touch of friendship and
good will is expressed by a basket of good things
to a needy household. Surely this bit of giving with
no thought of exchange of gifts, and in the name
of the Christ child to whom wise men brought
gifts, will bring a lasting happiness.
It is hoped that many in Franklin will respond
to this appeal of the welfare department, so that
no one ma v lack Christmas cheer. . -
The Price of Crime
IUDGE PLESS' charge to two youthful prisoners
in court last week deserves a wider audience
than the courtroom afforded.
Two Highlands boys were convicted and sen
tenced for a grave offense house-breaking. From
time to time, for. many years, the homes of summer
visitors have been entered and robbed. One of the
two boys facing a long prison term is convicted
for the third time of the. same offense, we under
stand. The judge made clear the fact that such a crime
injured the offenders' own families and neighbors
even more than the persons robbed of valuable
property. Most of the native people depend for
their living on the summer visitors, especially
those who own homes. If property is not safe, they
will go elsewhere. Thus, the judge pointed' out,
those who commit crimes create distrust of those
who arc innocent and law abiding, depriving them
of jobs as caretakers, caddies and other opportun
ities of earning their ! living. .
, Thus, to the bitterness of discovering that "crime
does not pay" is added the remorse of injuring the
innocent. This side of the sad picture needs to be
the serious crime of house-breaking.
