New Buick Stolen
From Garage Here
A brand new four cylinder Buick
touring ear was stolen from J. Law
rence Lackey's Karate sometime dur
ing Tuesday night. The car belonged
to the dealer, Mr. Lackey and was
placed just inside the garage door for
the night, Mr. Lackey having return
ed that afternoon from Kings Moun
tain where he gave a demonstration
to a prospect. The garage was enter
ed from the main front door and the
new car standing nearest the door
was driven away by some unknown
thief. Mr. Lackey has not the remot
est clue but has notified officers and
garages far and near to keep on a
look-out, giving them the motor and
other numbers for identification. Mr.
Lackey states that the car had only
two gallons of gasoline in it, but that
“a Buick gets such mileage that the
thief could get to Atlanta, Ga., with
out having to re-fill."

THE MOTHERS OF THE WORLD *
(By HARRY VVINTON)
The month of May is a most fitting one in which to
•"wet aside a day devoted to mothers the world over. May
is the month of flowers and hope, and it seems to me this
is analagous to the never failing faith, love, and hope of
Mere words are too feeble to adequately express the
depths of the all-encompassing love of a mother. A man
may break every law of man and God, he may become as
a pariah among his fellows; but, if he has a mother liv
ing, he has one refuge to which he can always-go, sure of
a loving welcome. It may be that, through years of dis_
appointment, his conduct has graven lines of sorrow on
that beloved face, lacerated a thousand times that trust
ing, hopful heart; but, unworthy as he may have become,
even such a man as this can return to Mother with the
certainty that she will have for him the same tender so
licitation and love that marked her care in his infancy.
In the following lines Kipling has penned a tribute* to
mothers which aptly expresses the boundlessness of
If I were damned of body and soul
A mother’s love would make me whole.
If I were drowned in the deepest sea,
A mother’s tears would reach down to me.
Time and time again I have listened to men who
have achieved the greatest success in their chosen lines—
captains of industry, great writers, successful lawyers,
and the like,—and these men have never failed to empha
size that the chief factor in their scaling of the heights
was the qualities that make for sterling manhood incul
cated from birth by a loving mother.
Possibly it is one of the tragedies of the world that
the praises of mother are too often -unheralded and un
sung. The outstanding qualities of motherhood are self
denial and self-effhcement. You will not find the great
mothers of the world among the harridans who disgrace
womanhood and motherhood by shrill platform demands
foi womens rights. \ou will not find them among the
garrulous class of women who harangue for birth control,
and, childless themselves, elect to dictate to more for
tunate women the proper way to rear children. The great
mothers oi the world, thank God, are the mothers that
you and I remember, gentle and loving and kind. The
mothers who kissed our childish hurts, who smoothed
out for us the fancied troubles of impatient youth, and
sent us out into the world equipped to succeed, it we
would, only apply the patient and loving training that had
been ours every step of the way.
The thought of mother cannot long leave any man
or woman, and no particular Mother’s I)av is necessary
to keep green in our memories all that Mother has meant
to us. Its just the thought of a graceful tribute, that
on this one certain day in May the whole country in unison
should pay particular homage to Mother.
It s mighty fine on this day to wear a red flower
expressive of the warm love of living mothers, and a
on7" lovin* memory of the purity and goodness
?! V** mothers who have passed on; but it seems to me
rea tnbute should go further than this, and
that the greatest possible tribute anyone can pay to
Mother is to try each day with all his or her might to be
somewhat approximate the kind of man or woman Mother
hoped and prayed and labored so hard for us to become.

etc. A sanding room will finish the
products for the better requirements
in building. Mr. Thompson says his
products will he of a high order and
that he will cater especially to the
manufacture of materials for construe

Mr. Thompson has spent his life in
the lumber business and recently sold !
his interest in the Thompson company J
to his 1 rother, Carl Thompson who is
continuing thi- old and well estab

The name of the new lumber plant

National And State Agricultural Re
presentatives put on Fertilizer and!
Two fertilizer demonstrations were
put on in the county Tuesday, May
Oth, on the farms of T. C. Black, near
mgs Mountain, and S. C. Lattimorc,
of the Sharon section of the county
in cooperation with the county ex
tension service, State experiment sta
tion and the U, S. Department of
agriculture at Washington to deter
mine the best source of ammonia to
use under cotton and proper amount
of fertilizer to use. This is just the
kind of demonstration the farmers of
( leveland county have been wanting,
as each year many ask the question,
what is best source of ammonia to
use and how much ncr acre?
i iftv different kinds and amount-,
of fertilizer are in each demonstra
tion and the ammonia in each test is
from fifteen different sources and
we should be able to advise best
source of ammonia for cotton next
year and amount that should be ap
p.ied per acre as each row of cotton
will be picked and weighed separately
The fertilizer test on Mr. Latti
m ore s farm is on cccil sandy clay
loam, which id representative of a
large part of the land in th» county,
while the test on Mr. Black’s land is
on applying sandy loam land.
No doubt these demonstrations
will prove popular in the county and
will be watched with keen interest by
all farmers in the county, and Cleve
land county is very fortunate indeed
in getting these demonstrations as
only one other demonstration is put
on in the state this year by tile de
partment of agriculture at Washing
S. K. Jackson represented the state
experiment station and J. S. Skinner

to win the championship. Twice this
season Shelby has defeated Gastonia!
by a decisive score and the big ques

time? On both occasions, Biggers,
Gatsonia’s ace, was on the mound and
in all likelihood he will be pitted
against the locals Friday.
If that unknown something does not
crack the Shelby outfit is confident
they can again turn the trick. The in- j
jury to Max Connor has weakened i
them considerably, for with the Con-j
nor-Lee combination around second I
the locals had a smooth working in

be plugged by either Ross or W-.11,
who are both good substitutes for the
heady Connor. Hoyle Lee, Shelby’s

defense the team will be held steady
by Arrowood. Lee and Beam, all cool
players. But more than anything else
the town is banking on the grit and
fight of the entire club, the spirit of!
the boys who are determined to win

O. M. Suttle haslieen appointed tnx
lister and tax collector by the town ot
Shelby at a salary of $1,200 per year,

bility of collecting the taxes, which
has been done by Chief Hamrick.
The mayor and board of aldermen
at the meeting this week also decreed
that they will stop not only “jay”
walking of pedestrians but of live
stock. The driving of cattle through
the streets which has given the town
authorities much concern has resulted
in a notice being issued to both Sea
board and Southern railway agents
requiring them not to deliver any live
stock that is shipped in here without
first notifying Chief Hamrick who
will see that the consignee has suffi
cient help to drive the cattle over a
specified route so fcie said live stock
will not damage property.
Chief Hamrick asked the city fath
ers for a parking ordinance and ha
will instruct the city attorney Mr.
Mull as to his wishes in the matter.
The ordinance will require the park
ing of cars in the business section be

stopping of cars in the middle of the
streets, require pedestrians to walk
across streets only at corners where
