Lose First Game And Come Back
Strong In Second. Wall And
Magness Feature.
Playing Mt. Pleasant Collegiate In
stitute, the fastest outfit they have
faced this season, the local highs
dropped the first game Monday to
the visitors 11 to 2 in a game featur
ed by the heavy hitting of the junior
collegians and the nervousness of the
Shelby defense, and on Tuesday turn
ed the tables and outclassed Mt.
Pleasant in a 4 to 1 victory, that vergL
ed on a shut-out.
Dedmond and Lee were both hit
hard in Monday’s game and their sup
porting cast made air expeditions at
tegular intervals with the result that
Shelby looked weak against the hard
hitting cadets. Shelby’s off day was
strengthened by the steady work of
Beam, behind the plate, and the hit
ting of Magness, southpaw outfielder

Come Back Strong.
Writh Wall, master of deceptive de
livery, twirling, the highs fought out
a good revenge Tuesday, but-hitting,
out-fielding and out-fighting their
conquerors of the previous day. The
infield and outer works played a
steadier and more determined brand
of ball and aided their heave: in
working out a two-hit game, the first
time the visitors had been so huti'b
led. On the offense the youngst: rs
connected with a deadly regularity,
Cline, the club’s star, and young
Magness leading the barrage, the
latter with a triple, and the work of
Beam in nabbing airy fouls being
again exceptional.
The collegians had a word of pra:se
for Coach Gurley and his team and
the best high twirler they have faced.
That Wall' wa-ked well is evidenced
by the Mt. Pleasant-Lenoir College
game, in which Mt. Pleasant secured
four hits, two more than Wall allow
ed them.
Play Asheville Frday and Saturday.
With six victories out of seven
games the highs are in a mood to
battle hafd in their two games with
the strong Asheville Highs here Fri
day and Saturday. The attendance is
increasing slightly and with the com
ing of the strong mountain array is
expected to be more encouraging. A
sale of season tickets will be put on
immediately as the club expenses are
delivering some deadly uppercuts to
the income sheet.

Three Churches Ila'e One-fourth of
Population in Sunday School.
Parse Classes for Men.
Shelby has been referred to recent
ly as a “leading Sunday school town,”
but few people know that approxi
mately otto-fourth of the up-town pop
ulation is in Sunday school every Sun
day morning. Approximate figures
secured from the Sunday school sup
erintendents of the three leading up
town churches, the First Baptist, Cen
tral Methodist and Presbyterian, show
that the average total attendance at
the three Sunday schools is 1,043. In
some instances this is larger, but the
figures were based on a general aver
age. With an average attendance of
around 1,000 during the winter
months Sunday school officiate hope
to have around 2,000 in regular class
es during the summer.
Although showing a good attend
ance the Central Methodist and First
Baptist churches have an attendance
considerably below total enrollment.
The Presbyterian church with an av
erage attendance of 125 out of a to
tal enrollment of 168 has a remark
able record. With only 171 resident
church members, the church has a
Sunday school enrollment of 108. The
First Baptist and Central churches
each have 250 more enrolled than at
tend regularly. However the total at
tendance speaks well for the town,
considering the population of the sec
tion of town covered by the three
churches. The number of men in Sun
day school is probably the most re
markable part of the Sunday school
figures—362 Shelby men and young
men are regular members at one of
the four Bible classes. These four
classes are taught bv O. Max Gard
ner, Clyde R. Hoey, I. C. Griffin and
John P. Mull, and the ability of the
four as Bible teachers is largely re
sponsible for the attendance.

three superintendents are as follows:

CLAIMED Blf DEATH
Well Known Citizen And Owner Of
Lithia Property To Be Buried
Here Toda>.
Mr. II. Reck Quinn passed away
quietly at his home on East Graham
street Thursday morning at 3 o'clock
followirg a protracted ill revs with
asthma and his remains will be in
terred at Sunset Ceme*ov today, the
funeral to be conducted from the resi
dence at 10:150 o’clock by Rev. W. A.
Murray, pastor of the Presbyterian
church. •
Mr. Quinn was 09 years of a. e i-i.st
September. He was born in Shelby,
the son of Mr. and Mrs. Anonymous
W. Quinn. On December l'2th ls83 he
Married Miss Qu'lla Andrews, da irli
ter of the late Dr. W. P. Andrews
who survives with one son, Dewitt
Quinn, proprietor of the South Shelby
Pharmacy, together with three bro
thers, Lawson who lives at Fordvce,
Ark., Cliff of Salisbury, Ben of Gal
veston, Texas. Another brother, Wil
liam, went west and has not been
Ward from in 25 years and he is sup
posed to be dead.
Mr. Quinn was a tailor by trade
and the son of a tailor which profess
ion ho followed for many years. About
20 years ago he purchased the Litiva
Springs property and conducted tin
fountain on the Court Square, the
waters of which were noted‘far and
wide for their medicinal qualities.
Mr. Quinn was a quaint character,
noted for his originality of wit and
humor. He was one of a quintet of
“buddies” often referred to in the
Charlotte Observer in writing Shelby’s
mineral waters and his “spring
house’ on the square has been a ren
dezvous for these five,—the mill man
(J. C. Smith,) the drummer (Joe Ba
ber,) the Norwegian (T. W. Ebeltoft,)
the Major. (S. J. Green) and the water
man (H. B. Quinn.) His fountain was
a gathering place for the retired and
leisure class and Mr. Quinn was al
ways one of the chief entertainers,
his originality of wit and pictures
queness of character, drawing around
him a host of admirers from far and
near.
When the Courtview Hotel proper
ty 130 feet on Marion and 200 feet
on Lah ayett street was again exposed
to public auction Thursday afternoon
at 2 o’clock, not a single higher bid
was offered and the property was
i knocked down to W. C. Corbett, half
owner. Jack Palmer, Wm. Ldneberger
and Mai Spangler, half owners, bid
the property in on March 3rd for
$82,000 but at the end of . 20 days it
was raised five per cent by W. N.
Dorsey acting for W. C. Corbett and
bids were asked beyond 180,100 but
none came. Absence of prospective
purchasers was noticeable, there hav
ing been much,speculation as to
whether the $86,100 bid would be rais
ed or not. Many spectators were pres
ent. However, the bid remains open
for another twenty days subject to
another five per cent raise.

At Shelby On 19th
Effort Being Made to B)»> Car Poul
try n Rutherford and Cleveland
For Cash Price.
A I) Robertson, dev»l mment agent
of the Seaboard has been in the
county this week explaining to the
farmers the sale and shipment of
poultry in ear lots to northern mar
kets. He has been in Rutherford and
expects to get a full car from the two
counties next week. Poultry buyers
are notified to send in bids to the
banks next week at which time the
farm agents will open the bids and
notify the farmers of the prices to
be published in next Friday’s Star
and the car which will be partly load
ed at Rutherfordton and EUenboro
will arrive in Shelby Saturday after
noon April 10th. The successful bid
der sends a man here to weigh the
poultry in the presence of the farmer
and pay cash. •
The first four months in the year
poultry reaches its highest price in
this section and the shipment by
freight in car lots enables the buyers
to pay more than express shippers,
according to Mr. Robertson. He says
last ycur South Carolina shipped
eight cars and this year will ship 30
or more cars. He expects this to be
profitable to the farmers when once
they try this meth&<!.
