plenty of pep, the Brevard football
squad was out Wednesday afternoon
presenting: a thrilling spectacle to
the bunch of early fans out to wit
ness pre-se'ason form.
Speculation was rife as to who
would play here and who play there
on the team. An average of three
would-be Granges were out for each
position, and have been for the past
week. With the largest squad in
the history of football at Brevard
High, no place seems assured any
one player as yet, although practic
ally all letter men are out. along
with some new material and second
string men from the previous season,
indications point toward several of

can tell," and Coach Tilson has not
committed himself as yet to any
statement in regard to who will be

SERIOUS CHARGES I
! DRAW HEAVY BONDS
Four Young Men He!d in
Bonds of $3000 Each to
MUST STANDTRIAL FOR
j 2ND DEGREE BURGLARY
Broke Into Lyday's Filling
Station ? Barely Escaped
First Degree Charge
Clarence Cole, of Ohio, Jess Shad-!
rick .Leonard Fanning und Clarence j
Stamey, of this county, were given
| a hearing before Judge D. L. Eng- j
lish Monday and bound over to court i
under bonds of $3000 each, on a |
charge of second degree burglary. |
The four men were arrested, charged j
with breaking into the Lyday Filling i
Station at Davidson River. The fact 1
that sleeping quarters for one of the I
men connected with the business are j
maintained in the filling station con- j
stituted the charge as that of second j
degree burglary. Because of the
fact, it is said, that the man was not
sleeping in the place on the night of
the theft, caused the four men to
escape the charge of first degree bur
glary, which is punishable by death.
Sheriff Patton and Deputy Sheriff
Tom Wood are being complimented
upon the manner in which they de
tected and arrested the four young
men. It is said they have confessed
to the charge.
Under the law in this state, break
ing into any building where any one
sleeps and uses as a home, is a cap
ital offense, punishable by death.
The young men, whose ages range
from 17 to 21 years, are said to have
stolen about fifty dollars worth of .
goods. Two of thc-m were sent to|(
the chain gang in Henderson county i
on other charges, to be returned (
here when the short sentences ex
pire. They arc Leonard Fanning
and Clarence Stamey. (
The burglary case will be heard i
at the December term of court.

mittee are making extensive prepar
ations for a state-wide observance
of Constitution Week, and letters
have been sent to all judges of the
Superior court that they charge the
grand jury during that week on the
preservation of the constitution.
Mr. Stacy, as chief justice of the
the State Supreme Court, and Mr.

are considered well qualified to open
the observance of this occasion in
Literature on the constituiton of
the United States has been sent to

BELIEVED THAT RAILROAD MEl\
WILL BE RETURNED TO BREVARD
It it believed that the Sou
thern Railway company will
rescind its order of last week,
and re-arrange the schedule on
the Toxaway division in such
manner as to permit the train
crews to live in Brevard and at
Toxaway as heretofore. A
I change was made ten days ago
that caused the removal of the
crews from this counvy, placing
most of the members at Hender
sonville, and called for running
mixed trains altogether.
Last Friday a delegation of citi
zens, including Jos. S. Silverstecn,
C. R. McN'eely, W. W. Croushorn.
Thos. H. Shipman and James F.
Barrett called upon Mr. \V. F.
Cooper, superinendent of the Ashe
ville division of the Southern, and
urged him to re-arrange the schedule
so as to permit the train crews to
live in Brevard. After hearing the
Brevard men, Superintendent Cooper
assured these citizens that the Sou
thern wanted to do all it could for
this community, and had made the
change simply as a measure of econ
omy to the company.
A plan was worked out, whereby
one train can leave Toxaway early in
the morning, do all the freight work
to Brevard, and run to Honderson
ville from Brevard as a passenger
train. Returning to Brevard, this
train would then do all the freight
work between Brevard and Toxaway.
The other train would leave Bre
vard early in the morning, do all
freight work between Brevard and
Hendersonville, do switching on the
Hendersonville yards for four hours,
and return to Brevard at 2 o'clock in
This plan would leave one train
crew in Brevard, as heretofore, to
gether with the shop men, while the
other crew would live at Toxaway.
Mr. Cooper gave the Brevard del
I egation a most cordial reception, and
while the above plan is not offically
announced, it is believed by members
of the delegation that official an
nouncement will soon be made to ,
Gardner Pleads for More Potatoes
And Dairy Products in the State
More money from milk cows anil j
Irish potatoes was offered the west- 1
ern North Carolina farmer today by !
Governor 0. Max Gardner.
Substantial profit can be made by I
western Carolina farmers by in- 1
creasing dairying for local cheese and '
creamery markets and in growing
certified seed Irish potatoes for the j
eastern Carolina potato truckers, de-;
clared the governor, speaking out- '
rloors to a large gathering assembled |
at West Jefferson from Ashe and the
three adjoining counties of Alle- 1
ghany, Watauga, and Wilkes.
The occasion was the second an- ;
nual farmers picnic and field day, in j
improvement in the Ashe county arc;t
celebration of which farm and dairy
was featured. The exercises feat
ured the success of Ashe county in
furnishing milk for the use of the
cheese factory built in West Jeffer
son a little more than a year ago and
so successfuly operated that the
Kraft-Phoenix Cheese Corporation
now proposes to build a $100,000
plant in two units in order to furnish
a permanent market for the dair;
farmers in Ashe and adjoining coun
ties. A representative of the Kraft
Phoenix Corporation attended the
rally and made a biief address in be
half of his corporation.
The governor advocated the policy
| of each farmer supplementing his
! present business by the gradual addi
tion of pure-bred and carefully grad- 1
ed milk cows and dairy cattle, and |

WHEN HENS CACKLE AND COCKS CROW,
DIMES, QUARTERS AND DOLLARS GROW
That poultry is rapidly becoming ]
one of the greatest revenue preduc- ,!
ing articles of commerce in this
; state is emphasized in a report made .
by the Department of Agriculture of
the state of North Carolina. Tran- ]
sylvania county shows greatest gain
in number of pounds of poultry
shipped in 1928 over the previous
year of any county in the state.
In 1927 this county shipped 6,843 ,
pounds of pouitry to outside mark
ets. In 1928, there were 17,800
pounds of poultry shipped from Tran
sylvania county, of which records
were made. Much other poultry was
shipped from which there is no rec
ord, owing to the fact that the
county has no farm demonstration
agent to keep tab on such matters.
Shipment of poultry in this year
will be much larger than that of
1928, showing, it is believed as great
an increase this vear over last, as
last year's increase was over tht
Poultry shipments in this county
owe the large increase to the fact
that the B. and B. Feed and Seed
company provides a constant cash
market for poultry. ?
Just to snow how rapidly poultry
raising is becoming one of the best
money crops in the state, the follow
ing figures are given for the state a?
In 1925, this state shipped 451,
30P pounds of poultry.
During the first six months of tbjs
year, the state had sKlpped 5,302,392
pounds of poultry. That is, ten
times as much poultry had beer?,
shipped in six months tEIs year thaw
was shipped in the whole year of
