Jupollo Public Service Com
pany to Open Large Elec
tric Display and Service
In a telegram received lierc Tues
day afternoon the Jupollo Public. Scrv-
.' ice company . announces; that it will
soon open a large electric display and
service store in Franaklin. Mr. Mend
states that the purpose of this store
is to be of real service to Macon
and adjoining counties rather than as
a place in which to sell electric ap
pliances. It is onderstood that the
store will carry in stock eleqtrical
appliances of all kinds such as' ranges,
irons, percolators, fans, etc. The tel
egram' from Mr. Mead made no men
tion 'of the location-of the store. In
the telegram Mr. Mead also states
that in the event the people vote in
favor of selling the power plant he
will have lighting engineers in Frank
lin at an early date to niake sug
gestions . and recommendations for a
modern street lighting sls'tcm for the
town.' In this connection it will-be
remembered that one of Mr. Mead's
engineers was here sometime, ago
making a survey of the various rural
communities with the object in view
of extending the power ' lines' to the
country homes. The news of the
cstablisahment of a store here by the
Jupollo company and the plans -for a
" better lighting system for Franklin
and the extension of the lines to rur
al homes will be received y t'io
public with much interest. This an
nouncement coming immediately fol-
" lowing, the announcement of Mr.
Mead's - plans - for Lake Emory , has
already created a most favorable im
pression on the citizens in. both - town
and country. As the date for the
dectionf' on" the sale bf the powe"
plant ilraws near ; the sentiment of
favor if the sale ' is apparently" be
coming more unanimous.. Sevcrav cit
izens fof the town have advanced -the.
'opinion that the development of the
Lake) .Emory holdings will mean as
. ' much V to the town as the sale of the
. plant , 'itself. Consequently the sent
iment in favor of the sale has become
crystalizcd and little or no opposition
is expected at the election next Tues
' day. j. '
Next! Tuesday vote to sell the plant.

THE CANNERY IS
Will Close for the Season
About October 10 Has
Aided Farmers to Extent
A visit to the Cannery Tuesday
brought to -light -many interesting
facts concerning the operation of. this
industry during the present : season.
Mr. Jonathan Case, the superinten
dent,' stated that ho has sold every-,
thing canned to date :atid has orders
for all .produce that can be packed
until the cannery closes.'- In fact he
has. beer, cor.ipciied to. turn- down
many orders that have been received
from adjacent states. Mr. Case states
that the cannery- has been operating
under handicaps that have been ' hard
to "overcome. These handicaps are
lack '.f proper equipment. At pres
ent the cannery is not equipped to
make jellies, jams, preserves and
kraut. The demand for such products
has been large. Those in charge hope
to have more, extensive equipment
during the next season.
"Beets have been -much in demand,"
said Mr. Case, ''but only a limited
supply has been available." It is es
timated that a thousand bushels of
beets can .be grown on one acre and
the cannery will pay 75 cents per
bushel. Consequently the officials of
the cannery hope that more beets will
be grown, next year. Turnip greens
are also in great demand, but few
are availbale. The demand for car
rots has also been brisk with none
to Je had.' All these products grow
profusely " in .Macon; county. The
beans packed , the local caniiet-v
have, already made' ";i fine reputation
in the exacting markets of the South
Th- soil of Mncon with the cool
nights are admirably adanted to grovv
ine, the best beans in the world, ae
co-din;.; to M r. Case.
When the cannery first started op
erations, it . is . said.' that Vn-oti.-nu-'-"
on iK part .'of -trtc"1 Ureal' people was
-lacking,. Now', i'lr. Case states, 'the
co-operation on the part of all fann
ers, merchants, wholesalers is 1K ie"
cut. As. a result of this co-opcrai' ""'
the prosnects for a verv '-su'-ssfu'
year in 199 are verv bri'rht. A r.n.

Recreation Park Also Plan
ned For Lake Emory if
Study Shows Sufficient
Information from authoritative
sources received at Franklin Tuesday
indicate that interests, associated and
closely affiliated with the Jupollo Pub
lie Service company, plan extensive
developments on 'Lake Emory in the
event lha,t the voters approve the sale
of the 'municipally 'owned power plant
at the special election called for' Sep
tember 25. It Will be remembered,
that an official of that 'company ob
tained an option on the Lake Emory
holdings Sometime ago. If the power
plant is sold to the Jupollo .Public
Service company, this official intends
to exercise his option on the Lake
Emory lands and consummate the deal
at an early date. . Details of the ex
tent of the development of - Lake
Emory are not yet ready to be- made
public. However, Mr.Mead, president
of the company, has stated to The
Press that, if the sale of the power
plant is approved, plans call for an
immediate study of the Lake Emorv
holdings and after this study detailed
plans will be ' announced. This-survey.,
is expected to take in all pos
sible phases of the development and
then those in charge can concentrate
on plans that appear to he most suit
able to the location arid topography.
In any event it is understood that a
summer hotel will be erected at once
on some suitable site on the. property.
Mr. Mead has also stated that in
all -.probability a recreation park will
be provided ; in the e ent that (ho
.survey shows that Hro.iect of this
kind will receive sufficient patronage
' to iustifv the expenditure. The fol
! '"nun is quoted from a letter of
! 'r. Me.-ifi's received nt '-'ranklin early
lip; week: "Yo" "wi'l understand
:,.:n,,,.-t iuy rM.f"ti'" the statement
; that 1 nm nmclilv int'v-sted in the

! with the power deve'onment. We
! would not have been int -ested in th?
! --.wv.v nl-iiM without a . hancc at thr
Stfvelo'tment of iV. "-hole territory."
' T'vis it crn readily K" 'ee" that 'Mr;
Mead and his ass"M.itwj intend not
ni-i" to buy. Lake. Em"' but to de
velop the property. While Mr. Mead
has 'hi ann-n"HT'' -''o for tb
completion- of the hotel it is believed
here that this additio" t o(. summer
accommodations of 'Yrmklm- will be
: ready for use by the"1 early . part of
I next summer.
