Give Option On Masonic Build

The building boom in Shelby con
tinues. Somethin*? like $80,000 more
building' is assured from information
gathered this week. Most of this build
ing will be business property.
J. F. Ledford will erect a two-story
brick garage and filling station 4 !xl 10
feet on his lot on S. LaFayette street
between the Episcopal church and I)r.
B. H. Palmer’s residence. It is esti
mated that this structure will cost
nearly $10,000. Mr. Ledford will make
the building modern in every parti
cular for the purposes it will be used,
and build the walls strong enough to
add two more stories when the town
grows so as to justify the addition.
Material is being placed on the
A. P. Weathers is having plans
drawn for two brick store rooms .ad
joining the Ledford property on the
north side, these two buildings to be
66x90 feet with plate glass front,
steam heat and office rooms on the
second floor. The cost is estimated to
be about $25,000,
max uaraner has had grading done
on half of the Major Green property
and expects to build a garage, filling
station and storage for cars, but as
yet his plans have not materialized.
J. E. Webb who recently disposed of
his grocery store to his sons has noth
ing to do now but plan and work his
head. He has valuable property which
he expects to develop, but as yet he
has not made up his mind whether he
will build store rooms to the rear of
the College Inn on S. Washington
street or put store rooms under the
College inn, leaving room enough on
the first floor for a lobby and dining
room and modernizing and enlarging
the College Inn into a large and up
to-date commercial hotel.
Masons Give Option.
At a recent meeting of the Masons
in their lodge hall, an option was
given a real estate agency on the Ma
sonic building for $45,000. This is the
building, the first floor of which is
occupied by W. L. Fanning and Co.,
and the second floor by the Blue
lodge and Chapter Masons. It is right
in the center of the business district
and it is felt that someone will buy, in
which case the Masons will develop
the Elam property corner of Warren
and Washington streets within the
next 12 months. Just what the Masons
will build has not been determined.
One or two of the upper floors will be
used for the lodge.
Corbett Property for Sale.
In an advertisement published in
Tuesday’s Star the Courtview hotel
property will be offered for sale at
auction on Monday March 3rd, this
property being sold for division
among the tenants in common. It has
been owned for many years by Mr.
and Mrs. W. C. Corbett, now of Tex
as. Some years ago Jack Palmer ac
quired a half interest. Last year he
sold one-sixt.h ipteerst to Wm. Line
berger and Mai Spangler. This is ore
of the most valuable pieces of busi
ness property in Shelby and will no
doubt command a fanev price. Its sale
may mean that it will get into the
hands of men who will develop it into
first class business property.
Eskridge to Build.
Charles L. Eskridge has plans
drawn for a handsome 12 room, two
story brick veneered home on West
Marion street, adjoining Charlie
Webb. Bids are now being asked for
and construction work will begin in
the early spring. The Eskridge home
when completed will be one of the fin

Country Gentleman Savs County
la Typical Of “Tar Heel Quick
Step.” Farm Scenes Shown.
Located In the highlands of North
Carolina, Cleveland county has mo
mentarily been in the national lime
light owing to the great men she has
sent forth in the world, but this week
the county catches the eye of the na
tion as theexample county of a state
that is hustling for the forefront in
the farm world.
The Country Gentleman, the world’s
leading farm paper, this week devotes |
two pages with illustrations to North
C arolina, the farm state. Under the
title, “The Tarheel Quickstep—-North
Carolina is a Fine Picture of Well
Earned Prosperity,” the farm pro- j
gress of the state is depicted as repre- i
sented in this county. One of the il
'ustrations is a cotton field scene on
the farm of Senator Sam C. Latti-1
more, whore a bale was made to the j
-icre. A portion of the article, written I
by E. H. Taylor whose visit here will
be remembered, is as follows:
—Iowa, Illinois, California, Texas J
and other states with certain claims i
to farm leadership should take warn 1
ing. North Carolina is in the race, and i
is moving fast.
When North Carolina jumped from
obscurity into fourth place among all
the states in value of crops in 1919
some took the view that it was anoth
er case of “acicdents will happen." If
my still think that way let ’em ob
serve wh#e she stands whentha final
1923 figures are issued.
Progress is never an accident.
North Carolina’s splendid farm ad
vance is no more an accident than is
the Tine graft-free good-roads systeqi
it is building; than the model pchqat
system it is striving toward; than W
efforts to relieve farm tenantry, its
taxation experiments; or its water
power and home-market development.
These all have their roots in a com
mon cause, best summed up by Dean
B. W. Kilgore, of the State College
Million Bales Despite Weevil.
—Therein you will find a major
reason for the record cotton crop
grown by North Carolina in 1923,
four years after the boll weevil enter
ed the state. Allowing Providence due
credit for favorable weather, the rest
of the explanation is the same that
accounts for the state’s amazing pro
gress in general. “Better cultural
methods growing out of ten years of
experiment and preparation,” is the
way Dr. R. Y. Winters, State college
expert and plant breeding, summed it
up. “That and a more intelligent use
of fertilizer,” added O. Max Gardner,
former lieutenant governor and a
Cleveland county planter. “An open
mindedness that has made our peo
ple good farmers," said J. H. Alexan
der, banker and farmer, of Scotland
Perhaps by reducing all this to
terms of Cleveland county a better
idea may be obtained of the way the
North Carolina aim is working out.
Cleveland ginned a cotton crop of
around 38,000 bales in 1923, more than
double its production six years ago.
“Heavy and intelligent fertilization,
early planting with strains we have
found best fitted to local conditions,
frequent cultivation, picking up fallen
square and keeping on the job with
the crop all season,” is County Agent
R. E. Lawrence’s explanation. Cleve
'and’s cotton crop is worth over $6,
000,000, but that isn’t all of its farm
:ncome by a long shot. Although near
ly all its 4116 farms raise some cotton
hey produce a lot of other things too.
Its farmers raise around 80 per cent
of their food and feed supplies.
The county has two flourishing
creameries that last year made over
half a million pounds of butter.
“Thera are 8,000 milk cows in the
county and fully a quarter of our
farmers are patrons ofthe creameries,
yet scarcely a man could be called a
dairy farmer,” staed Manager Wm.
Lineberger of the larger creamery.
Poultry raising is being developed
in the same way.
Time was when North Carolina
used only half as much fertilizer as
Georgia or South Carolina. Last year
it used nearly twice as much as eith
er. Cleveland is a firm fertilizer ad
A two-eared type of corn is raised
in the county. As as a result of years
of breeding, especially by L. G. Bla
lock, a strain that is particlarly well
adapted has been evolved.
“We have found that by proper fer
tilization and cultivation, along with
the use of legume crops, we can grow
our corn on our poorer land, leaving
the rich land to produce the biggest
money bring®—cotton,” remarked
