Trout Season Longer.
The trout fishing season will open
on April 15, and as the new law is now
in effect the lovers of this sport will
have fifteen days longer than last year.
The last day ot the coming season will

large and small are expected to yldd
large catches. Last season compara
tively few trout were caught When it
was not raining, the streams were too
high and muddy for fishing and this
Is one of the reasons why trout will be
numerous this year.

Accident at the Tannery.
The slumbers of the Franklin citizens
were disturbed last Sunday night at
12:30 by the blowing of the tannery
whistle. It appears that a new pack
ing was put into the manhead of the
boiler over the furnace and this blew
out from the force of the steam. Geo.
D. Maneval, the night watchman, be
gan to pull the fire and with this mix
ture of fire and steam, found himself
unable to cope with the elements. He
pulled the whistle and called in other
employers of the tannery. The trouble
was remedied and the tannery began
operations at noon Monday. It was
fortunate for Mr. Maneval that he wag
not in front of the escaping steam when
the packing blew out He was there
but a few minutes before.
