Porter's Store, Franklin's
, Leading' Department
''J . Establishment
J. H. Porter & Company have
made some . very marked improve
. ments in arranging their store. This
V new' arrangement takes the form of
separate and distinct departments.
yr The most, striking of these is the
jP ladies ready to wear department.
This will be exclusively for ladies
and will be equipped with up to date
' equipment. The ; merchandise will be
so arranged that it will be easily
, inspected. The place is well lighted
; and when the fixtures' have arrived
and are installed it will be a ladies
' ready" to wear, shop unique.
, , Another department will be given
ver entirely . to men's clothing and
'will feature the latest in work clothes,
1 - shirts " and overalls'. Another- depart
me nt will ' carry a complete stock of
" motor ires and tubes.
, Mr. R. L. Porter, the genial mana
ger of' J. A. Porter "& Company,, says
that this is just the beginning- of a
plan tq create a real department store
, so that everything in the way of dry
goodsv and groceries will be kept
- r in one snop tnereDy saving tne cus
tomer trouble and worry of going
- from one shop to another. When
this is done it will make Porter's
the most outstanding and the largest
department store of Franklin. It is
. even said now that a larger variety of
goods can be had at Porter's than
at any other one store.

Franklin Hi has an even break to
have the best football- team' it has
ever had. If the boys would only
observe the training and practice
rules more closely they would not
have anything to dread from- any of
the teams they have to play this year.
Coach Kesler is having more trouble-
getting the line in shape than
with the back field. There are sev
eral new men in the line that are
as willing as boys can be but they
just have not had experiencea thing
we all naturally lack in anything new we
start. There is Sanders,' a new
man at guard. He is a great muscular
fellow who is trying hard. Nb boy
ever' put more into his efforts than
danders : does. We look for him to
find himself in this first game and,
oh boys 1 He will go thru that line
like a snow plow thru sloush. Am
nions is a new man here but he
knows his stuff. ' tie ''will be at , one
of the guards, and . looks like he is
going to be the guard of Western
North Carolina High Schools. We
all know Sutton at center, even if
he does think he can smoke ' ciga
rettes and keep training.
The tackles. .The' light little john
Cunningham is the grittiest and most
consistant candidate for this position.
The only thing that will keep John
off first team will be a lack of
weight but next season; hush!
Freeman and Slagle at tackles are
a good combination. After this first
game we will know more about them.
At end Wilkieand Barnard know
their .stuff and are game. They both
have a spell of "can't help its" ev
ery once in a while, or at least they
did last year in a game or two. We
found an old buggy trace yesterday,
In the back field. John McCullum
at quarter may be counted on. He
is a betteralt'player lhan his broth
er-Phil who graduated last year. This
is John's first year at .running
team and naturally he may be a little
nervous. But he has Red Stewart,
seasoned . head, at full back, and
when Red rumbles away down in his
toes some of his none too euphoneous,
tho very lucid and expressive re
marks, everyone takes noticcr Red
puts more go in his team' when he
wants to than any High school play
er we have seen in a long time. The
boys all know Red can and does de
liver and they stay with him.
Then there is Henry and Hauser
to complete ,the back field line up.
Henry played last year, if he hits
the line this year as he did last
year, there is no better half in these
parts. Hauser has not practiced as
he should but we will soon know
what is in him.
Red Henry, a last year member
of the squad, has improved more
than any other player. He will, no
doubt, get a chance to show his.
stuff at Waynesville. In fact, J.
Waldroop, Young, Reece, Calloway,
Conley, Wilkes, and Street are all
going to be tried out according to
this ink slinger's guess.

his men out in the first ame, he is

one of the best in the South. Alvah
Pearce, secretary of the local club,
is busy as a pup in flea time, putting
the finishing touches on the plans
for the entertainment. The invitatoin
to Shriners from all over Western
North Carolina and North Georgia
states that "if- those old hooves are
free of blot and blemish and capable
of tripping the light fantastic for the
biggest part of one big night, please
be on hand with bells on for we are
going to make whoopee."
Sam L. Franks, president of the
Franklin Club, and D. D. Rice, vice-
president, are leaving nothing undone
that will tend to make the celebration
a complete success. The local Shrine
Club, with a membership of only
seventeen, claims to have the least

water and became strangled. ,The
lad had eone down twice when his
mother screamed and thus attracted
young Mangum's attention."' Bill im
mediately went to the resuce of his
friend and was frantically seized by
Winton. Remembering his Boy Scout
instructions, Bill placed his hand
against Winton's face and with a
shove broke the boy's hold.' A
short time later young . Mangum had
his friend on the bank of the lake.
