Cotton Cron Here
30 And 38,000 Bales
Drought Here Decreases Crop from
Four to 10 Thousand Bales. Es
timate for Nation's Crop.
Estimates on Cleveland county's
cotton crop this year range from
30,000 to 38,000 bales. That there
will be a decrease from last year
is the opinion of practically all
cotton men and farmers, estimate
on the decrease ranging from
four to 10 thousand bales. Some
estimates made to The Star are:
30,000; 32,000; 35,000 and one of
38.000. However, the majority of
estimates range from 30,000 to
35.000. The decrease is a result
of the long dry spell and unbrok
en drought that has severely af
fected the local crops.
13 and Third Million Bales.
The cotton correspondents of the
Journal of Commerce place Au
gust 25th condition of the crop in
the 12 leading states at 57.5 per
cent as compared with 64.0 per
cent a year ago and a ten year
average of 63.6 per cent. This, de
terioration during the month of
August, amounting to 6.5 points,
is less than the ten year average
which is nine points. A larger"
crop is, therefore, indicated on'the
basis of August condition than
on the outlook a month ago. The
prospective crop of the 12 leading
states is now placed at 13,340,213
bales as one month ago of 12,879,

John T. Shook, of Gastonia, Awaits
Federal Hearing Over His De
tective Agency Letters.
oome monins oacK jomi 1, hiiook,
Gastonia youth, was nabbed by Fed
eral officers who charged him with
using the mpils to defraud. Shock's
scheme was that of establishing do
tectives over the country at a fee ot
! $10 each, claiming that he assured
them employment at $7 per day an I
more. Federal authorities say that
Shook’s interest in his detectives end
ed with the reception of the $10. Th'
youth, whose scheme was so simple
that it is a wonder he ever received
any S10 customers, is now in jail here
and will be given a hearing at the
coming session of Federal court in
The form letter sent out by Shook,
presumably as “bait”, is almost comic
in its simplicity. Above the firm name
“The Great John T. Shook National
Detective Agency,” are the names ot
the officers listed as follows: Mr. P. M
Shook, finger print man: Miss C. M.
Shook, secretary: Mr. J. T. Shook
treasurer and chief; Mr. F. W. Shook,
Some of the form letters ask a fee
of $5, others $10 and still another $20.
One of the typical letters follows:
“A big job waiting for you! Do you
want it? If you do act quick. We want
you at this moment. So don’t let this
job pass you by. I need you badly.
“You have been recommended to
me as a detective. I am in need of a
detective and I believe you can handle
my work. I will hire you for one
J year an'j£»ay you $7 a day and ex
i penses. I will put you to work in youi
own city. We pay straight salary. You
understand what I mean, just as it
you was working for a railroad com
pany. You will get a pay roll every
month which will be $210 a month. 1
know you don’t make $210 a month, do
you. I can hear you say “No.” I have
investigating to be done in your city
and if you want the job I will hire
you and put you to work at once.
“Attention. We are going to be kind
enough to have papers printed in
about a week so that all of our detec
tives can go in any' show free and have
a nice time without costing them one
red cent. You see that we are going
to try and beat all other agencies ir.
the United States. We have the larg
est agency in the world, so you car.
see why we can pay' our detectives $7
a day and all expenses, and we abso
lutely pay more money to our dctec
tives than any other detective head
quarters ifrdhe world.
“Now friend, don’t join some othei
detective agency and think that they
will pay you better salary than we do,
for I know. Here’s what other agen
cies will do. Thev won’t pay y-ou
straight salary like this detecti\e
agency does. Why? Because they dr.
not have a big detective headquarters.
We have 15,000 detectives working
for this agency, and everyone will
tell you that they wouldn’t take $200
for their job. Why, because they make
$210 a month and all expenses.
“Now friend, do you want to work
for me? If you do,, it will cost you $10
to have papers fixed, and for joining
“This job will be held for you R
days, and if you do not send $10 this
job will be given to some one else.
Now friend, I have made everything
as clear as I can, so if you want to
work send your joining fee and go to
work. Send $10 by cashier’s deck, ana
be sure and put a special delivery
stamp on the letter and put on a two
cent stamp and I will get it, but it
! you don’t do it, I may not get it.
! “Now friend, every day that you
! delay you are losing $7, so if I was
you I would get to work as soon as 1
could. You know $7 a day is good
wages for easy detective work. I wilt
do you right if you want to work foi
“I am yours very truly.

will soon be leaving their homes
in Cleveland county for colleges
and schools over this and other
states. Naturally, they’ll like to
i keep in touch with the things ‘go
| ing or back home,” personal items,
new enterprises, farm news, mar
riages, deaths, and many newsy
articles that are carried twice
each week in The Star. Nothing
will be appreciated more than The
Star carrying the news tj them
Of the money you'll spend for
them none will be more wisely
invested than that which sub
scribes to The Star for them.
Come in or write today about the
