wanis and the Kings Mountain Cham
b"r of Commerce at the Monnfa
View Hotel Friday right r.f whi h ;
plates were provided for 125 guests.,
It was another love feast where what
ever ill feei ng that might still e ;:s j
between the two towns of the countv j
was laughed over and forgotten and
each club pledged its lay 1 surmot-t to
the county in a'l forward locking
movements. The Misses Norris v.ho:
own and operate the Mountain Vie •• \
Hotel served a most elaborate and
well prepared feed and the Shelby nun
some 45 strong were guests of the j
Kings Mountain fellows who extended ^
the glad hand of welcome and made
the visitors feel perfectly at horn?.
The program was a varied one touch
ing on all sorts of matters, but was in- ;
teresting nevertheless, extending over i
a period of two hours of fun and good j
Oscai* Carpenter who has not yet
announced that he will be a candidate j
for corporation commissioner, welcorn- j
ed the guests after which O. M Mull, j
president of the Shelby Kiwanis re
sponded, pleaded for more cordial't v
between the town and a un'ted effort i
for every good forward looking move
ment that benefits Cleveland. He re
viewed the supremacy of th ■ county

in agriculture. Calling attention tu the
fact that Cleveland is now producing
more cotton than all the other adjoin
irg counties combined.

Kings Mountain 13 soon to get a new
Southern passenger station which th"

vocating for some time. Wiley McGin-l
nis, mayor of the town and secretary
of the Chamber of Commerce read a"
letter from Superintendent Bungcr
ford assuring the citizens there that j
work would begin at an early date on i
a combination passenger and freight
station 31x145 feet. This was a source |
of joy to Knigs Mountain in which I
Shelby partook in the handclapping
Max GarSner ro:;e to heights of
oratory which was interspersed with
several good jokes on the county line
controversy and the “secret chamber”
where he and Hon. W. A. Mauney
made final preparations for the battle j
of ballots eight years ago which rc-1
suited in a victory for Cleveland.
Carpenter’s boost for a state po
sition came from Mr. McElroy who
paid high tribute to Mr. Carpenter ns
a man of fine poise, ability and wojthi- i
ness for corporation commission and !
the suggestion brought forth a tumult
Mr. Snealey, scout master of the
fourth district .comprising the tout
counties of Gaston, Lincoln, Cleveland
and Rutherford outlined his work in
making noble men of the boy of today
and pledged his help wherever called
upon, while R. E. Lawrence, county
demonstrator reviewed the recent
county-wide milk campaign and the ;
good results therefrom.
Mauney Grows Reminiscent.
W. A. Mauney, the “noblest Roman !
of them all” whose age is the same as
that of Cleveland county grew rem'nis
cent. telling of the early days of the
county’s history, the first house which j
he erected in Kings Mountain 51
years ago next April, the cordiality of j
the early Shelby citizens, naming Due- j
ham, Lee, Jennings, Gardner, Gidney
and others. When he was a boy the
Courtview Hotel site was a “bean
patch” owned by Crawford Durham.
Its insiginificant value then was com
pared to its value today when it sold
The New Jail Defended.
The new jail which was sponsored
by the Shelby Kiwanis, recommended
by the grand juries for many years,
urged by several judges and needed to
take place of the dilapidated inst-tu
tion which now serves the county, was
discussed by Chairman of the County
Board of Commissioners A. E. Clire,
Mr. Cline told of the delay caused by
the high cost of construction, of the
thought and worry which the board
bad given the matter, declaring that
if the board had spent more than the
tax payers think necessary, $75,000,it
was because of no recklessness or. the
part of the board, but a desire do
the right thing for Cleveland and
serve the wishes and needs of the
Judge B. T. Falls commended t,l c
commissiemers for their new jail pro
ject and asked that the men present
should commend the commissioners on

| Women of (he County Buried in
N . 10 Township.
Mrs. Ann Osborne, mother of Dr,

! day night March 15th at St o'clock
at the home of her daughter Mrs.
Mary Baber rear Hickory at the age
j of 95 years, 7 months and 14 days.
Mrs. Osborne was older than Cleve

spend her last days with her dough
ter. Before marriage Mrs. Osborite
I was Ann Feeler. At the age or 1H
I veers she was married to Dr. J. E

1 Csbor-e w a small woman in stat
1 no but very industrious and active.
There was not a lazy hone in her body
! and her regular habits and jovial dis
j oosition were responsible for her long
I life. She hod no organic trouble to
undermine her health and take her
away. She simply wore out after near
ly a century of usefulness to he"
ne:ehbors and devotion to her family
and home. All th° neighbors sneak in
highest terms of her noble life, a'
though she made no pretentions of
be;ng a saint. At an early age she
joined the church holding her mem
bership at St. Peters where she at
tended regularly when her health
would permit. She never gave up the
fight and never complained in her
last years when her body grew feeble
because of the weight of 95 years.
Mrs. Osborne was buried Monday
at 11 o’clock at Knob Creek Methodist
Protestant church, the funeral serv
ices being conducted by Rev. Mr. Mor
gan of Fallston, and a great crowd at
tested the love and esteem in which
j she was held.
She was the mother of five chil
dren to whom she was devoted and
: gave the best energies of her life,
Bruce Osborne died two years ago.

Unpaid Street Taxes
Notices po out this week to the
property owners in Shelby who have
not paid their street and sidewalk
assessments due the first of Febru
ary. The statements do not show the
amounts due for the reason that the
interest is accumulating as the days
go by. There is no way to force prop
erty owners to pay the assessments,
according to a statement by Mayor
W. D. Lackey, until the ten years
have expired, but it should be remem
bered that the interest is accumulat
ing and that the installments and in
terest constitute a lein against the
property. The property, therefore,
stands for the obligation and is sub
ject to sale for the street and side
walk taxes if not paid.

HIGHS 10 FLAY
I Gurley's Diamond Artists to Take on
Fast Rockingham Club in First
Ita chall (ianu* of Season.
Local baseball fans will got their
first taste of the national pastime
here Friday when the Shelby highs
meet Rockingham in th? fir t game
of the season. The game has been def
initely scheduled and unless snow or
other ground hog weather interferes
it will be played, according to an an
nouncement by Coach Gurley.
The game is expected to draw al
most as well as a mid-season eonte»t
as fair, are eager for the initial con
test of the major sport following the
winter mouths. In addition to the t eg
ular athletic followers there arc;
those who consider baseball far su
perior to basketball and football and !
ha\e not witnessed an athletic cpn-j
test since the end of the baseball sea- j
son last year. This is the first high
school contest to be played in this
section and quite a number of out-of
town peopl* are expected to attend.
The local highs have been practis
ing off and on for several weeks as
the weather permitted and although
the first game will be in the nature
of an experiment Coach Gurley is of
the opinion that he will have a:
smooth-working outfit on the field I
Friday. Several players have been los^' I
to the team since last year, but thei «•
is a wealth of new material and it is
the prophecy of some that the Shelby
hiirhs will give opposing teams an- j
other hot clash for the state chum-;
pionahip. The strength of the Rock
ingham club is unknown, but the east- j
erners are rated strong in all athlet-1
ics in their section of the state and;
with Coach “Shorty” Lawrence at the
helm plenty of opposition is guaran-;
teed the local diamond artists. The
outcome of the game will be taken as
an early season comparison of eastern
and western North • Carolina high
The local park has been undergoing
: a general renovation and* is now con
sidered on? of the best high school
j diamonds in the state.

Prizes for All.
There were prizes galore. Max j
Washburn got Kiwanians to give
prizes so no lady guest was overlook
ed. The drawing consumed a great
part of the time and the nature of the'
prizes ran all the way from a $10 gold
piece given by J. R. Dover to percu
lators, scissors, silverware, aluminum,
flour, shoe polish, face powder and
merchandise from local mills and
stores of ecvry description. Not sat
isfied with this, each lady was giv-'
en a can of Hawaiian pineapple, a
sample of Duke’s mayonaise and a
package of chewing gum, so all went
home happy and sober.
