(ialTney I'ndertakers Suit Ends in
Mistrial. Civil Docket Was
Completed This Week.
The summer term of Cleveland Su
perior court adjourned late Tuesday
afternoon, following the completion
of the criminal docket, which was cut
down considerably by compromises.
Several interesting suits were dispos
ed of, hut none of major importance.
Unusual features developed in one
of the suits, that of P. S. Courtney,
Gaffney undertaker, versus, Rev. A.
H. Hopper, colored of Shelby which
ended in a mistrial. Hopper’s father
died of injuries received in an auto,
mobile accident and the funeral was
conducted by Courtney, who furnish
ed the casket and other funeral re
quirements. The bill ran up around
$300. It was for this amount that the ,
undertaker brought suit, but the con
tention of the Hoopers was that Court
Tiey said he would get the burial exv
penses out of insurance money anrl
that failing to do so he sued them for. J
the amount. They alleged that they
made no obligations of any kind to
jiay him and that they protested tht.1
expensive burial program. The case
took an interesting turn when counsel
for Hopper introduced a letter receiv
ed by him stating that the body would
he taken up and removed from the
casket if the hill wrji not paid. Court- .
ney denied any knowledge of the let
ter, which was written on his station
ery, but admitted that it could have
been written by some one in his em
ploy. However, the jury could not
agree on what the negroes should pay !
the undertaker, if anything, and the
suit was declared a mistrial to be re
hearsed again next court. Hopper was j
represented by Attorneys Clyde R. j
Hoey and B. T. Falls, ajid Courtney |
by Attorney Bynum Weathers and
Colonel Butler, of GafTney.
Two More Divorces.

the docket, hut the majority were con
tinued. Only two were disposed ot '

Speaking Of Dogs
Speaking of dogs and hydrophobia, ;
Lawson Blanton, well known fox hun- ’
ter and dog fancier, says he would j
like to see a law enacted compelling '
the dog owners to put muzzles on :
their canines or have them vaccinate j
ed against rabies. Mr. Blanton now j
uses the rabies treatment and finds!
its succesful, but last winter he lost |
nine fox hounds becaue of rabies. He j
prize his dogs and enjoys a fox race !
as much as any man so he is willing ■
to see a muzzle or vaccine law in or
der that good dogs might be protect- !
ed and that human life might be safe
Mr. Blanton has the “yvaTker straTtV i
He keeps nothing but pedigreed dogs |
and says there is a vast difference be- j
tween the way the pedigreed dog and j
the old-fashioned hound makes a race
The old fashioned hound would bark
in a pack just because the othej dogs
were barking, whether he has a hot
trail or not, but with the Walker ped- j
igreed stock, only the lead hound lets j
the hunters know where the trail is.
The dogs on a cold trail keep their j
mouths shut. Last summer Mr. Blan- ,
ton and a party enjoyed a fine hunt ]
down in Scotland county, catching j
five foxes early one morning.

Private Telephone In
First National Bank
The First National Bank of Shelby
is having installed in its hank, a pri
vate telephone system which is some,
thing new in Shelby. The system en
ables the hank officials and clerks to
communicate with each other in va
rious rooms and departments of the
bank without going in person. So oft
en when the tellers are at the win
dows and customers come with ques
tions they wish to know about their
financial affairs, it has been necessary
for the tellers to leave the windows
and go to the rear offices where the
ledgers and other books* are kept in
order to get the desired information.
This causes delay and confusion. The
bank’s business has grown to such an
extent that with resources over five
million dollars and limited clerical
help because of the limited space in
the present bank quarters, it has
been found that the telephone system
will facilitate matters greatly. The
Piedmont Telephone and Telegraph
company is installing this new device
which will he in operation shortly.

Well Known Surgeon (lives Would-Be
Woman A Lift But She Turns
Out To Be Man Yegg.
Dr. Henry N'orris, well known sur
geon of the Rutherford Hospital had
an unusual experience near Philadel
phia a few days ago, according to re
liable information learned here, when
he took what he thought to be from
all appearances, a woman in his car
to give her a lift from a long foot
journey, but the woman turned out to
be a man cvho was evidently a saf<‘
cracker. Dr. Norris is at present on
his farm near Philadelphia ar.d a few
days ago while returning home he
overtook what appeared to be a tired
woman walking along the roadside.
Wishing to give her a lift the doctor
invited her to ride with him. When
the would-be woman lifted her bag
gage in the car beside the surgeon
soon noticed from the facial features
and the rough hands that his passen
ger was a man dressed in womans
clothes. Naturally this aroused his
suspicion and caused the doctor to
have some misgivings as to what
might be the outcome of his courteous
Finally the surgeon decided to aban
don his passenger in a most courteous
manner and he devised a clever
scheme. He set his hat loosely on his
head and looked out ostensibly to see
if his tires were down, whereupon his
hat blew off as he had hope 1 and
planned for it to do. Then he; asked
his fellow passenger to kindly get his
hat which the unsuspecting fellow
promptly did, but while the suspicious
passenger was some distance behind
the car, the surgeon put his foot on
the gas and left the scene, lie lost
his hat by this scheme but he got rid
of his pasenger. The suit case which
the passenger had was left in the car
and when Dr. Norris reached home he
made an investigation, finding that it
contained a sum of money, reported to
be from one to two thousand dollars,
together with a set of yegg tools.
These revealed the type of passenge1
he had taken in— a true yeggman
guised as a woman. The suit ease and
its belongings were turned over to po
lice authorities in Philadelphia and
they are working on the robbery

Oner Took Four Honrs to Make Trip
To (iastonia—Now Only 35
Miciny is thro<* hours and 2o nun
utcs nearer Gastonia new than it was
29 years ago, when it took a (rood j
buggy horse to make the trip in four
good hours. Nowadays a youngster!
flips in with a roaring motor and
avows thatonly 35 minutes earlier he
was in Gastonia. Such is the progress
of time. That it took four hours to go
from Shelby to Gastonia 29 years ago
is learned from a conversation with
Mr. T. G. Philbeck. of the Polkville
section, who has wintered 7!) winters
and summered as many summers. Mr.
Philbeck was a delegate from the
Polkville church to the Methodist dis
trict conference in 1895 and was re
minded of the fact by The Star’s “2.'
Years Ago." column. The little item
of another day mnde hint reminiscent
and he recalled many interesting in
cident's of that day.
“Our preacher up at Polkville then
was Rev. J. A. Cook and in addition!
to being a good preacher he could get.
a laugh out of any crowd and was a !
wonder at repartee. I went over with '
Rev. Mr. Cook in his buggy and j
among tic other delegates I remem
ber were ‘Am’ Palmer and R. G. i
Wells. Mr. Palmer’s mule was rather!
frisky and a short time after hrriv-i
ing it jumped up on the rear of Mr.!
Well’s buggy and smashed down one
of the rear wheels. Preaching at the
conference Thursday morning Rev.
Mr, Cook created quite a sensation
when he stated before the gathering
of preachers and delegates that re-'
vivals as they were conducted then |
did more harm than good, because i
they were depended upon too much, i
In the afternoon the Gastonia pastor
took issue with our preacher, but
most of the conference was with Mr.
Cook, some because of his nerve in |
making the statement and others be- j
cause they were so convinced. Bishop
Duncan took a liking to our pastor,
which probably resulted in him pay
ing for one-half of our Sunday school
and church library at Polkyille, which
is a forgotten incident. We had just
built a new church at Polkville then
(the church has since been destroyed
by fire and another erected) and Rev. I
Mr. Cook in his report mentioned the;
new building and that we were try- j
ing to raise enough money for a li
brary, naming the cost of the library
wanted. Bishop Duncan interrupted
and said that if we would get a Ik
brary thatWould cost twice as much
he would pay for half of it, which he
did, the check arriving a few days la j
ter. Another figure I remember at the
conference was the late Bishop Kil
go, hut he was not a bishop then, be
ing only a representative of Trinity
college, Clyde Hoey, who was editor
of The Star then, was also at the con.
ference, and as well as I can remem
ber all the delegates who attended i
nre living now with the exception of
R. G. Wells.”
The feature column appearing in
each Tuesday's Star brings out many
interesting stories from the older res
idents of the town and county who re
member clearly events that transpir
ed 29 years ago.

which Dr. Clarence N. Peeler is mak

is one of particular pride. Dr. Peeler

men in the medical profession in
North Carolina and th' fact that he

him more into the limelight at this
time. I>rs. Peeler, Matheson, Shirley
