23, 1912 Ready For Big Game Christmas Day. All
arrangements have been completed for the football game to be
played Christmas day. The stars, old veterans at the game,
are arriving every day from their respective colleges and the
Tigers are casting anxious glances at the bunch of huskies
against whom they must uphold their honor. Football "dopesters"
are very much interested in the outcome, since it is to be a
battle between the individual ability of each player on the
Stars and the Co-operative playing of the eleven Tigers.
It can be seen by the following line up at that the Stars have
great men, but since they have never played together, the Tigers
are depending on their better mastery of plays. When the
whistle blows the following men may be seen in their respective
positions: Tigers--Brantley Harris or Mahaffey, center;
White or Powell, right guard; Stanton, left guard; Taylor, right
tackle; Kuhn left tackle; Wade, left end; Wooten Harris, right
end; Willian Harris, right halfback; Nick Braumiller, left
halfback; Walter Braumiller, fullback; Ramage,
quarterback. Subs---Jones, Moore, Gaunt.

Winham Clan Gathered in a
family reunion and feast together.
Mrs. Milton Winham entertains seven brothers and four
sisters, with their mother as guest of honor.
One of the most remarkable family reunions of the recent
times in this city was that of the “Winham Clan,” which was
entertained by Mrs. Milton Winham in her beautiful home on
County Ave., Tuesday, Jan 7th.
The occasion was in celebration of the 56th
birthday of Mr. Milton Winham.
The seven brothers were entertained at dinner and the
four sisters at supper, only immediate relatives being invited.
With the exception of the father, who died at the ripe
age of about 70 years, this family remains unbroken.
The dear old mother, Mrs. E. J. Winham, still survives,
at the age of 78, who was the honor guest, on the happy
occasion. The seven
brothers are : Lucullus,
59 years old: Milton
56, Allen 51, William 49, John 4?, George 38, and Moses 34.
Their combined ages aggregate 333 years of splendid,
useful and productive life.
The four sisters are:
Mrs. M. J. Allen of Canfield Ark. Mrs. Nora McLain of
this city; Mrs. Ruth Paulk, also of this city, and Mrs. Safrona
Ramsey of Marshall Texas. The
best part of it is that this remarkable family represent the
very best type of citizenship, all in good circumstances, and
some having attained distinction in public life and in financial
and commercial lines.
