The shooting occurred near the
Southern Railway station, and a large

more shots. Bryson was hit by sever

Several men grabbed Brooks and

Jurist Before Adjournment Court Re
plies to Criticism and Add.,
Compliment for County.
Before adjourning Superior court
here Saturday Judge Thomas G. Shaw
who drew quite a bit of newspaper
criticism because of a statement made
in the court last week regarding athe
ism in the universities, made another
statement to the court regarding the
original declaration and the storm
it has brought upon him.
The statement in full follows:
Gentlemen of the Bar, before leav
ing I have a statement I desire to
make. I am sure that to some people
in the state I have been “provokingly
cool” during the past two weeks, I am
borrowing that expression from a col
ored professor at Salisbury, North
Carolina. I heard him Use it once on
the stand and it was so expressive
; that I have appropriated it.
I am sure that some of my friends
throughout the state are expecting be
fore the adjournment of this court a
statement from me with reference to
some things that have been happening
during the past week, aad in compli
ance with their wishes I desire to
make the following statement:
First of all, I want to thank the
people of Shelby and Cleveland coun
ty for their kindness, confidence and
loyalty in and to me during the hap
penings of the past week. You have
here a beautiful town, a fine county
and a splendid citizenship, and it is not
surprising that you produce here up
standing and outstanding men-—men
fitted to fill with credit to themselves
and with credit to the state any posi
tion within the gift of the people, i
want to say further that Shelby is a
fine place of refuge for one in time
of a storm.
in reference to my charge to the
grand jury and the correction made
thereto, I desire to state that, as I re.
call it, late Thursday afternoon of last
week, a copy of the local paper was
hande<j me by Mr. Hoey in the court
room and only a short time befoie th*
adjournment of court. I glanced over
the papeV, saw the article which has
caused somuch criticism, and before
the court adjourned and in open court
I undertook to correct the same, and
among other things stated that th’*
article was unfair to me and unjust
to the University of North Carolina.
This I did in less than ten minutes aft
er this paper had been handed to me
and before I had arty knowledge that
the article had been hroadcasted cjki
To my friends of the faculty of the
University who have attempted to
draw me\iafo a newspaper: contra,
Vterfeyi I desire to 'state th^t it has
been over 26 years since I was first
elected judge of the Superior, court
and during all of that time I\ have
never had a newspaper controversy
with anyone upon any subject, and
during all of that time I have nevfer
requested an editor, newspaper re\
porter or correspondent to correct a
statement reported to have been made
either by myself or about anj thing J
that may have happened in the court
over which I was presiding. I may be
a fool about sonie things, but I have
too much sense to permit myself to
break my rule, and especially in my
old age to engage in a newspaper con,
troversy with eight or ten learned
professors of the University, tvith
perhaps one hundred and seventy more
1 nere is another thing X want to
say. It was hardly necessary for the
acting president of the University in
his telegram and letters to have stat
ed that Dr. Chase was away in Eu
rope on his vacation. I did not know
this at the time of delivering my
charge but if the learned gentleman
not mentioned it in his telegram and
letter after reading his telegram and
letters, almost any thinking man, and
perhaps even little Jeff, would prob
ably have reached the conclusion that
the distinguished and learned presi
dent of the University was not “to
To my friends in the state, I want
to say that during the past week I
have been getting on very nicely in
deed, both physically and mentally;
have been eating and sleeping aplenty
and have been discharging my duties
in court to the best of my ability and
have gained two pounds in weignt
since last Monday. I have been read
ing the papers also, and following my
usual custom I first look over the
news items on the front page and then
glance at the editorial page, and from
there I go straight to the comic page
I enjoy the Gumps, Bringing Up

13 Million Gallons
Of Water Used In
City During July
The city of Shelby used 13,000,000
gallons of water during the month of
July. After hearing the announcement
there is no wonder that the eity needs
a n:,v water syf-.em.
To many people the figures will
come as a surprise as it is not gen
erally known just how much watci
is used in a city, but aCfording to the
water and lipht superintendent, R. V.
I Toms, the pump meters registered 13
| millions during: alst m*mth. Of this
I amount 146,000 gallons was used by
Cleveland Springs hotel, while East

.gallons, the other mills using in pro.

! ing teh drought of the month Shelby
| faced no immediate danger. The pres
; ent system will filter about one mil
j lion gallons daily but the capacity
of the city basins will not take care
of the amount. By tiie new system
that is to he constructed two million
gallons can be filtered daily with a
storage for six millions and a public
water reserve of about 400,000 gal
lons for general use.
German Millet and Sudan Grass Sug
gested For Hay. Abruzzi Rye
For Fall and Spring.
One thousand copies of the follow
ing timley suggestion by C. B. Wil
liams, division of agronomy, state
college, Raleigh, are being sent out
by the Shelby Creamery to farmers
in Cleveland as ameans of furnishing
hay for fall and winter:
Because of the prolonged drought
in the Piedmont and Mountain oec
tions of the state many farmers in
these sections will have difficulty in
providing enough feed this' fali and
winter for their work and other live
stock kept on the farm. The college
feels that in this emergWfit-y the wes
est policy will be for them, should
rains occur within the next few days,
to plant now such crops as will be
suitable to provide hay and grazing.
If seeded on or before August 15
ot 20, German millet and Sudan grass
for the central and lower piedmont
sections and German millet alone ioi
the upper piedmont and the less ele
vated sections in the mountains will
be two as good crops as may, be re
lied upon for the production of hay.
The land for each of these should be
well prepared haw jupt as , soph as
possible and a seedihg of 40 to 50
pounds of German millet and 20 to 25
pounds of Sudan grass seed per acre
should be made. It will require about
two months from the time of planting
for these crops to develop fully for
hay. The cutting should take place
when the seed heads are in full bloom
in order to get the best quality of hay
In case frost theatens, the crop should
bexcut whether or not they bave at
tained this stage of development.
Local county agents and merchants
will render aid to the farmer in se
curing seed of good quality promptly
for seeding purposes. Orders should be
placed at once and the land put in
shape so that the seeding may take
place just asXsoon as the seed have
arrived. If the seeding is delayed in
all probability these crops will not
be able to produce the maximum
yield before frost.
As an emergency crop for fall and
spring grazing Abruzzi rye should
now be seeded just as soon as possible
on fairly good land at the rate of
about five pecks to the acre. If put in
properly with reasonable good care
to see that the rye is not grazed too
severely or when the land is wet, this
crop should provide a goodly amount
of grazing for the fall and spring.
Where spring grazing is expected
from the rye especial care should be
Exercised to see that the stock does
not graze too severely for if this pro*
caution is not observed the young
plants may be so weakened by the fait
grazing that they will not be able to
come through the winter satisfactorily
especially if the winter is a severe one.
Each of the three crops mentioned
above should at planting receive ah
application of 300 to 400 pounds pe»
acfe of a fertilizer mixture containing
10 to 12 per cent available phos
phoric acid and about 4 per cent of am
If further information is desired
with reference to seed or seeding this
may be secured from yur local county
agent or by writing to the Department
of Agronomy State College Station,

Sunday Closing Is
Help To Gas Sales
To the Editor of The Star.
The Automotive Service as
sociation of Charlotte made the state
ment in the Observer of last Friday
that the volume of business done on
Saturday by the filling stations since
they voted to close on Sundays la
more than the amount formerly done
on Saturday and Sunday combined.
Owners of the storage places, which
remained open to accommodate out
of-town motorists, reported a decrease
in their Sunday business.
It pays to keep the Sabbath. It
would be a fine thing for all of the
Shelby filling stations to close on
Sunday. Every laborer has a right
to the Holy Sabbath.

n EVENT HERE
Secretary Jnrdine III And Unable To
Attend, But I)r. B. W. Kilgore Will
Come And Perhaps Poe.
It is now almost certain that Gov
ornor Angus W. McLean will be un
able to nttend the big farm celebra
tion at Cleveland Springs Park here
Friday, August 21. It was hoped that
since Governor McLeod of South Caro
lina is coming that the two CarolinRs
executives would be here together
that day, but Governor McLean is now
on his two-weeks vacation, nccofding
to press reports “in the woods,” and
will hardly find time just after his
return to speak to the thousands of
farmers expected to gather here.
However, the list of notables ex
pected to nttend is increasing instead
of decreasing. Dr. B. W. Kilgore, a
great favorite with the farmers of the
state, ha definitely announced that
he will be here and will in all likeli
hood make a talk. During last week
it was nlso learned that Dr. Clarence
Poe, Progressive Farmer editor, was
planning to come. Should Dr. Poe at
tend the celebration it is planned to
have him speak just after the twilight
picnic supper, either before or after
Much Interest Shown.
Miss Susan Landon, who is in
charge of the preparatory plans, says
that much interest is being shown
over the state in the celebration and
pageant and that border counties in
South Carolina are discussing the
event and will likely send large dele
gations. The feeding of the vast num
ber expected to attend will be the
problem of Cleveland county farm
ers and the Cleveland Springs hotel
management. Over this county the
celebration is the general topic of
discussion arid apparently almost as
many farmers and their families will
be here during the afternoon for the
picnic supper and speeches as attend
ed the fair last fall.
