Nabbed Near Town
Officers Allege John Wood Had Es
tablished Business in W’oods on
Cleveland Springs Road
John Wood, a white man whose
name has appeared before on the
recorder’s court blotter, is in jail
charged with retailing as a result of
a little investigation and work Wed
nesday night by Deputy Sheriff Buren
It seems, the officers say, that some
time Wednesday night a young Shel
by man acquired a pint of liquor and
acquired, it is alleged, from John
Wood. A short time after the sale al
leged Deputy Dedmon wandered up
in the woods a short piece out of town
on the Cleveland Springs road where
the pint was thought to have come
from—and there he found the equip
ment of the retail business, vessels,
bottles and a half gallon of liquor,
Following the find and other infor
mation Wood was taken in custody.
Wood, who lives east of town, was
up recently for assaulting his wife
and received 30 days.

Industrious Young Parmer Near Lat
timore Struck by Bolt During
Emery Brandlett, who lived on the
Billy Beam farm of Mr. Will Crow
der near Lattimore, was instantly
killed by lightning Wednesday after
noon about 5 o’clock while on route
from the field to his house. Mr. Brand
lett was alone at the time the bolt
struck him and was found a short
time afterwards by his wife.
Clothing in Shreds.
The young farmer was in a field
near his home topping corn when the
storm.came up and wa, walking to
wards the house to be with his wife
and children when the bolt struck him.
His wife becoming alarmed at his ab
sence during the storm, which broke
immediately after the fatal flash of
lightning, started to search for him
and found him only a short distance
from the house. The bolt is thought
to hare struck him on the head, and
although he was burned from head to
feet and his clothing was torn in
shreds his skin was not broken. The
storm was not extra heavy around
Lattimore, but rain had fallen on the
body before it was found.
Brandlett, who was 24 years of age,
is survived by his wife and • three
small children. He was a native of
Georgia, coming to Cleveland county
last fall and has since that time farm
ed for Mr. Crowder, who is one of the
county’s most prominent farmers. The
deceased was an exceptional hard
working, honest and idustrious young
man according to Mr. Crowder, who
says that he was one of the best farm
hands ever employed by him. Brand
lett’s father-in-law, James Hoopaugh,
and brother-in-law, Clayton Hoopaugh
also farm for Mr. Crowder.
The funeral will be held at Latti

from Commerce, Ga., a car having

Wash Harlot? Imbibes and Fails to
Get Away. Others Escape. Get
Mi nature Outfit.
Over on Kings Mountain, where the
colonists walloped the “Redcoats,”’
the offir * s found a “firewater fac
tory” Monday and as a result of the
find Wash Harloe is under a $1,000
bond, and a perfectly good 50-(?allon
copper still and seven or eight gallons
of corn liquor, the “mean” kind, are
in the custody of Sheriff Logan. Wash
is under bond because he imbibed of
the product made on the mountain and
was unable to get away.
The capture was made by Deputy
Sheriff H. G. Ware and Officer Mc
Bride Poston, of Kings Mountain. The
Still was fired up and in the midst oi
a “run” when the officers arrived upon
the scene. Two others were there with
Wash, but were not there long after
the officers made their appearance.
Wash 4 was inclined, until the spirits
died out—which was sometime aftei
he was placed in jail to take the mat
ter lightly, but Tuesday he was not re
luctant when John Wells, “went his
bond.” The seven or eight gallons of
liquor found at the still was in two
stone jugs and one glass jug, the glass
jug nestling in a bucket of freshly dis
tilled liquor, the appearance and odor
of which should be a better cure than
Keeley. A quantity of beer was also
on hand at the still. Harloe will be
given a hearing Thursday week, it is
Little Stove “Stillo.”
Some years back when Mr. Vol
stead’s act first began to be felt, there
were those who could not do without
their favorite beverage, and they did
not want to buy "bootleg”—so “Stillo”
was the outcome. “Stillo” by the way
is a miniature still, of from one-half
gallon to five gallon capacity and is
listed in some of the mail order cata
logs. Private homes with the wet tem
perament purchased “Stillos” or stil
lettes, and the family cook stoves
found another burden in addition to
the daily “three per.” This leads up
to the fact that the miniature outfits
are to be found in Shelby—at least,
one has been found.
ast week officers made a search of
a vacant house on East Graham street
in the Flat Rock settlement and a
miniature three-gallon still, cap and
worm, copper all, was found in a sack
hidden in the vacated dwelling. It was
a nice little outfit, skilfully made, and
operated by—some people the officers
would like to meet. The little outfit, a
baby as compared with some of the
South Mountain plants, is on exhibi
tibn in the sheriff’s office.

A telegram from Senator Sam C.
Lattimore says the petitions signed
by approximately 825 citizens of Shel
by and suburban area asking that he
pass a bill allowing for an extension
of the corporate limits of the town
of Shelby for a distance of three-quar
ters of a mile did not reach him un
til Tuesday morning and that it was
too late to provide for extension at
this special session of the General
Assembly which is expected to ad
journ Friday night or Saturday morn
ing. The news was learned here with
considerable disappointment as it was
expected the bill had been introduced
when Senator Lattimore was assured
petitions would be sent to him with
500 or more names.

Dies In S. Carolina
The many friends of Mrs. Hugh L.
Hunt and Mrs. J. Ralph Ballentine of
Shelby will sympathie with them in
the loss of their father, Samuel J.
Wakefield, prominent merchant and
farmer who died in Abbeville county,
S. C., this week at age 64 years. Mr.
Wakefield had been in declining
health for six months. According to
the Anderson Daily Mail he was one
of the foremost farmers and mer
chants of that section and it’s said he
accomplished more in the way of ad
vancement of the farming industry
than any other one man so engaged
in that section. He conducted numer
ous experiments on his farms from
which other farmers beside himself
profited to a great extent. He repre
sented a substantial type of South
Carolina citizenship, accomplishing
much for roads and schools. He was
a large land owner and successful in
the mercantile business.

New $75,000 Mill Work Plant Huilt
By Z. J. Thompson Begins Oper
ation Next Week.
Z. J. Thompson’s new $75,000 lum
ber and mill working plant will be
gin operation next week, being the
largest industry that lias been erected
in Shelby this year and one of the
most modern mill work plants in this
section. The plant is located on \\
Washington street where he has a lot
105x525 feet secured some months ugo,
after which work immediately began.
Mr. Thompson is the principal owner,
distributing a few shares to his cm
polyc i. He is the oldest manufactur
er of lumber in the county, having
started when he was a boy 32 yeurs
ago last March. Although th$ plant
starts operation next week, it will be
in a limited way, "tuning” up the
machinery. In a few weeks the entire
plant will be in full swing. The plant
will manufacture ail kinds of mill
work, going beyond the usual run of
mill Work and making high class sand
'd and veneered builders supplies from
high class kiln dried lumber.
The main building is two stories,
67x120 feet, mill construction with a
class A built up, gravel-top roof. The
dry kiln is one of the most modern
in the Piedmont section, being built
of brick and 'having 10,260 feet of one
inch pipe, the steam being furnished
from the 1(X) horsepower high press
ure boiler which is equipped with auto
matic suction feed. This dry kiln built
of brick has two tracks running into
it with cars or trucks capable of handl
ing 40,000 feet of lumber at one time.
The system used is the Moore moist
dry kiln which is protected by pat
Another building at the plant is for
rough lumber storage and this meas
ures 45x!)0 feet. It contains bins and
a force feed rip saw. The intire plunt
is arranged for a systematic move
ment of lumber through the process of
manufacture with the least posiiblc
lost motion. When it arrives by
freight it is sent down a conveyor to
storage, thence through the dry kiln,
thence to the rough lumoer storage,
thence to the first floor of the mill,
thence to the second floor where it
comes out a finished poduct ready for
delivery or the finisherf storage house

Sam Adams Says He “Tuk” Rheuma
tism in Kings Mountain Lock-up
and Sues the Town.
From over at Kings Mountain comes
a story of frozen feet and what a col

cember, while it was cold—if one can
imagine such weather these days—ac
cording to Officer McBride Poston, a
colored man, Sam Adams, was ar
rested and placed in the lock-up at
Kings Mountain on a larceny charge.
After a night in durance vile Adams
was released, but as he looks at it, his
feet have never been the same since,
and now it is reported that through
his lawyers he is suing the town of
Kings Mountain for $6,000 to replan
his damaged feet, which he avers were
frozen in the cold^ cold cell, causing
rheumatism to set in.
Adams charges that his place of
confinement was a “shivery,” bleak
place and that the “home fires” were
not kept burning. Just how he came
out on the larceny charge is not re
membered, but from the suit he evi
dently means to emerge the victor.
However, Kings Mountain officials do
not seem to be worrying, according to
Mr. Poston, and may have ‘something
uptheir seleve” with which to meet the
charge. It is said that Adams will be
presented when the matter comes up
