Mr. Alonzo • Hamrick, one of the
county’s prominent farmers, has
worked out a novel apparatus for
crushing the lumps in nitrate of soda.
A model of the crusher, which can be
made for $1 and with which two men
can crush 1000 bags per day, can hg
seen in the office of the county agent
or the register of deeds office at the
court house. Farmers'heretofore were
forced to crush their soda with ham
mers or mauls and this inexpensive
apparatus is expected to prove pop
ular in the county. John Beam, Shelby
soda dealer, gave Mr. Hamrick his
idea and the crusher was constructed
from a windlass, similar to a well
windlass on which telephone wires
have been nailed lengthwise. The
windlass is then fitted into a trough
which forms a simple but helpful

“Smilin’ Through” Season’s Last Ly
ceum Number, At Central
‘ Smilin’ Through”, presented by
Redpath actors, will be given as the
last lyceum number at the Central
school auditorium next Wednesday
evening. This three-act play by Allen
Langdon Martin, is a fantastic com
edy with a wealth of human appeal.
When the play was originally -pro
duced in New York, Jane Cowl por
trayed the central figure, Kathleen,
and achieved an excetional artistic
triumph. Critics have branded the
story “a classic of the modern .stage.”
Dealing as it does with the always
vital themes of youth, love, misunder
standing, and a sadly misplaced de
sire for revenge,, it is not strange
that “Smilin’ Through” played to ca
pacity houses when introduced in New
York, Chicago, San Francisco and in
tervening cities. In ’Frisco the re
ceipts from the play reached a peak
of $25,000 a week.
Motion picture journals refer to
“Smilin’ Through” as one of the
sweetest stories ever told on the
screen. Norma Talmadge is credited
with her finest emotional artistry in
the photoplay as released by First
National in 192$. While the play as
a whole is of an emotional type, there
is plenty of humor. One of the trueat
to-life comedy scenes ever written is
at tire outset of the story when the
obstinate old uncle and hia life-long
friend, the sweet-tempered doctor,
appear in dialogue over a .game of
I he prologue explains the play’s
name. In it two spirit * figures—the
mother of the boy and the mother of
thp grirl—are shown "smilin’ through’
and trying to help the man see and
understand. They fade from view and
the action of the pldy begins. The
story, admittedly fanciful at times,
throbs with heart interest' that is
grippingly sustained. Each character
stands out as a great human etching.
This is the last Lyceum number
local people will hare the opportunity
of seeing this season and is consid
ered by some Iht best number of tfrf
season’s billing. In play form by ac
tors that are not amateurs, “Sniilin’
Through” should fill the school audi

Addressing a conference of demo?

His enunciation came at the end of

effect of the oih investigation on his
candidacy, and throughout the confer
ence, which he did not attend, no voice
was raised in opposition to the former

A platform “to satisfy the demand
of progress" was enunciated by the
former Secretary of the Treasury in
addressing a conference of friends and
supporters from all sectiors of the

DIES ITU MRS
One of Bailing Springs' Loveliest
Young Mothers Died in the
Special to The Star.
Boiling Springs, Feb. 20.—The Boil
ed Spring* people were saddened on j
last Monthly morning when the news
reached them of the death of Mrs.
pstace Hamrick of that place, Mrs.
Hamrick Had been in bad health for
nearly a year, bub no one, even to the
family knew of her being in such a
precarious condition. She was taken
sick about three weeks ago, but hot
seriously, and she wouldn’t let the
physician be called until too late.
They rushed her to the Shelby hos
pital on Sunday a week ago, but she
was too serious and weak to undergo
an operation. She was the kind that
never gives up, no matter how badly
Mrs. Hamrick, “Pearl” as she was
known, stayed at the hospital only
one week. She passed away at two
o’clock Monday morning and was
tenderly laid to rest at the Roiling
Springs cemetery. Tuesday afternoon
Funeral services were conducted at
the Boiling Springs Baptist church,
of which she was a faithful member,
by her pastor Rev. J. R. Green. She
will be greatly missed in the church
and Sunday school.
Pearl prayed that she might live i
with her husband and children, whom j
she loved so dearly; but she said she
was ready to go. She prayed just be
fore the end cam^ and didn’t leave
out any body’s name in the Boiling
Springs community. She wanted them
to live a Christian life that they
might meet her in Heaven.
Never was there any sweeter wo
man anywhere. She was so true and
loyal to her dear husband, her pre
cious little children, her home, her
peopl, his people, her town and her
neighbors and the whole country. She
loved her neigh bors as herself. Every
body loved her; she knew that she did
not have an enemy.,No one can ex
plain the exemplary life she lived. It
was too gfceat.
She leaves a husband and three
small children to mourn her sad de
parture. Lois Miller, 8 years of age;
Macie Lee, 6 years and the bady Wil
lie Sue, only three years old, also
father and mother, several brothers
and sisters. Had she lived until Feb
ruary 26 she would have been 26
years old. But she has gone into the
arms of her Heavenly father. *
May the community people help
Mr. Hamrick and the little babies, to
bear their burden. Never was there
any better husband and father than
Ostace was to Pearl and his family.
He thought too much of his home to
stay at the store. He was always at
home and they went 50-50 in joy and

WORK TO BEGIN SOON.
In Ad Darned Session
, Commissioners Let. Contrj
For Modern County Jail.
The contract for Cleveland couhty’s
modern, new jail building was let tc
Mr. Oakey, of the Roanoke Iron and
Bridge works, by the county board o
commissioners meeting in adjourned
session Monday, the bid being 175,060.
Work on the up-to-date jail sfMrc
ture will begin within a few weeks, it
is said, and will likely be completed
within a considerate length of titito,
the contract requiring that it be com
pleted within twelve months. The
building will be erected adjoining the
old jail on East Warren street. The
main entrance will face the exten
sion of East Warren street, while the
cell entrance will be on the alley lead
ing by the present jail.
The plans for the building drawn
by Berryman and Wilson, architects,
are in the office of the register of
deeds. According to the plans the
structure will be of shale Wick, mod
ern in every detail and complying
with the various state requirements.
That section of the jail for the con
finement of prisoners will be three
stories in height agd will contain 48
cells, which state officials considered
the minimum number of cells for a
county of this sise. Each department
is equipped according to tfie latest
priso nplans, there being separate
compartments for men and women,
insane and youthful delinquents. The
residential quarters will be only two
stories high and will contain seven
Fills Long-Felt Need.
The move of the commissioners in ■
letting the contract fills a long-felt
need. Recommendations for a new
jail have been a part of grand jury
reports for several years in addition
to similar requests by the Kiwanis
club and private citisens, who felt
that the old jail was of another day
and time. The commissioners have
been worried over the jail problem
for sometime. They tried to avoid *ny
needless expenditures for the county,
but considered the contract let Mon
day as conservative as possible. The
lowest bid received on the original
Dlans submitted was $101,000 and the
board did not delay rejecting the
plans. Revised plans were submitted
and it was thought that work might
be contracted for about $65,000, but
when the plans were submitted to the
state board of health certain changes,
including more air space for the cells
were required. This change necessi
tated that the building be raised fivo
feet along with other improvements,
which when the plans were changed
added an extra expense of about $10,
000( making the bid by Mr. Oakey
$76,000, which was accepted.
