Works Porter Establishes New
JACKSBORO, TEXAS, THURSDAY, MARCH 30, 1933
Works Porter has leased the
Hess building on the southeast
corner of the square where he ex-
pects to operate a business sell-
ing used articles. This is a new
venture here but seems to be pop-
ular in other sections of the state.
Almost every home and every
farm has one or more articles that
is no longer needed. Mr. Porter
proposes to make his place of
business a medium of exchange
by helping those who have arti-
cles they do not need dispose of
them and at the same time help
those who may need something
that can nat readily be located in
Mr. Porter states that he does
not want junk but that he will
handle anything from a garden
hoe to a threshing machine for a
small commission on the sale
price, if and when it is sold.
This is, we believe, a better
plan than the exchange
proposition that was fostered
here recently as he will have a
place to keep anything that is to
be disposed of in a centrally lo-
cated place where those who may
he in the market can inspect any
item that they may be interested
Every one is cordially invited
to attend these services. Stran-
gers in Jacksboro will find a

The adoption of this amend-
