2,000 Home Folks Swayed By
Eloquence Of Thomas Dixon
Ascd Men Who Knew Him In Ynuth Fhrf To Anditnrinm With
Hundreds Of Others In Hear C'ountv's
Greatest Son.
Tom Dixon, a towering-man with a!
lock of gray hair across ins forehead I
a man of international lame-.: car;:.-'
home Thursday night. to Shelby Ui i ■
Cleveland county.
As the shadows of a treacherous:
April day fell aslant the wide suet s ,
of Shelby in the evening they began.P«
gather, coming from the mountains > ,
the north and ranging across tV
the county to the South Carolina bor
der line, and they came until by u;C
hour of the scheduled address the big
auditorium was packed and doyen's!
were turned away. They came back to
the identical spot where Dixon- ;
hoy attended school to hear the nvi.
v ho more than a quarter of a cent in v
art1 stood among the pines just cut
iif Shelby and recited his first pub
lic speech. There with none to heat
or see but the whispering pine.- - a.
firs' trained the voice that hold 2.hOu
; -ople silent Thursday night for
two hours.
It was a homecoming unequable A
tribute paid two ways: by the folks
hr came back to, and by the distil ■
guished character who re, a rued.
Along the front rows of the au -
torium were packed the- old men H
the community, the men who knew
Dixon as a boy ami were ; ur.rades of
Dixon’s father; men who brought tits'
South triumphantly through the try •
i-g days of reconstruction painted .-■>
vividly by the author in his nove ls and
plays. Among them wire men, who
years ago. loaned the money to the
eider Dixon with which the man the;
h< ard speak’was educated, Ard group
ed back through the seats were the j
u rn and women who had listened by
the firesides of the county to the yg no
s*ory of Cleveland's own Dixon b-ys.
i nt'y were uif re wiui uu1 r;:aui
i) ll-'f to see the man. who rose ‘
r-u ion-wide distinction from their ov n
foothills, but they were revrar I 'd
with more. Dixon was ha. ': home ‘on.
The familiar scenes brought buck
memories, and arasne a people with
whose speech and customs he was ar
easainted, Dixon spoke a never befor
Pi von was great to bis home folks
' -fore Thursday n'fht: diyirigi’i - ed
from the awe of distance, huh •>
In is greater than ever before. With
the rolling accent of the tnge •bh-nd
ed with the irresistible • ioquence of
h.ovhood that sent him to legislature
from this county before he was 21, the
home coining son became a greater
.speaker than a writer. At first they
uarvelled before the appearance of
the man who created “The Birth of a
Nation” and “The Clans nan,’ then
they fell in a silent awe -'before the
bewitching cadence of inde.-eribabit
descriptive oratory.
The pride of Cleveland county -.
the son it fostered may be overi-sti
•mtiled, but the . county is content in
the pride. Its people measured http
at the beginning and know him now*,
and by the knowledge they know the
distance erf his rise.
And, on a broader plane, that ri
was thp subject of his appealing n i
dress. Dixon rose from a family that
suffered in the ashes of the old South
land, and it was the come hack of
Dixie that Dixon told of. told in a wav
that sent thrill after thrill through
the body of every Southerner.
Introduced by Newton.
Before coming to the auditorium Dr
Dixon spoke before the Kiwanis club,
hying introduced at both places bj
former Senator D. Z. Newton. Kiw i,
inns who followed him to the audito
rium were among those who could not
gain entrance and were turned away.
Mr. Dixon, in opening his address
explained why he has gone into his
new work. Something had happened
in his life, he said, that changed its
current, something big, something
.-f’.’iou- “ jloubtlo: s," • he said, "some |
°f. J'"ii have hoard of the tragedy of
last surnmer. Unexpectedly. out of a
■ if ir shy, 1 11>r- both of my brothers. I
That was the supreme shock of mv i
bfr. I never thought of them pass
ing away before the age of mv fath-1
or, who l.ved to be a man of tit), and I
my faba-rs mother, mv grandmoth
er. lived be 101. When I experi
enced this tragedy it crushed my j
hear •. and I ask'd myself the ques-i
tion: “What shall it profit a man if j
he gain file whole world and forfeit I
bis 1IV?" i asked myself another]
question, and that was: “What sort :
of civilization is it .we are living ini
that snuffy out the 1 fe of man in!
the height, of • i- manhood and his |
hi’" best p . bis achievements ? ’’1
The f. is something radically wrong j
vVth It. Min should l.ve to a more}
advanced-• age titan they are living j
today. Tho.-o two things turned t1 e
'current of hiv life and caused me to
give revaluation to life, revaluation
to ti ■ motives of l.tV. and I closed
my desk oil whivh 1 was preparing a!
b-M k. stopped the work of preparing
a pict'U'o nod turned toward this
beautiful idea.
Risen from Ashes
“Tlv 'them"-, which 1 have chosen I
is “The Rvsih" South,1’ The:'-- - could |
be no r irig South unless it had ris-1
en frorh. soniething. The South must:
l ave been; plunged into some abysm !
some stupendous catastrophe, from j
which she has arisen. When we look,
back- over our history, we recall the j
history of the South, ;t is as 'as
tounding fact that the South has ri. - ]
en. is still rising, as we see her do
ing. I never go over the South but j
what I am amazed at what 1 see. I i
never look at her glorious presence j
• ;» ! do not recall her tragic history i
ami wonder how it has been nossible j
for the South to rise in such glory
within the brief time it has been aie
coi iniihseii. And this was because of
the tr:.g -(iy of our history. We reach
ed the deepest abyss nnv people of
our race ever reached because our
livt • bo nine entangled in the out
t -onu institution of slavery. The
Yank- nv ral code was no higher
than the. people of the. South. We are
'he same people in breeding and in j
the race from which we came. W hen
our f it . rs came wer liere thev were i
all pious i ' ’ ■ When they landed
they landed first on their knees and j
then on the aborigines. The differ
ence in attitude toward the negro
was practically nothing. On the slave
questYn we were practically of one
mind. The real thing, that ‘happened1
was C at the Yankee had better busi
ness sense than we had. He figured
out very, quickly that slavery was
not oi ly a moral wrong, but an eco
nomic insanity. end early in the
■'lime he abolished slavery, not on
moral grounds but on . economic
,.iairei -. Wo were in the way of
abolishing slavery in the South when
the catastrophe was prcticipated.
Just when our greatest statesmen
were beginning to gather around the
council table and entering into id arts
for settling this i-sue there sudden

Violets Bloom
In Snow Here
--
< . I t or Hot Shelby Climate Does Not ;
Affect Beautiful Freak of Na
ture Here.
Sue, here’s a brief yarn.
As the word goes in a newspapci
.-hop.
It concerns violet bloom, pansy
blooms, the bio rams of the peach, 'hoj
• pear and maybo—in the end—oratlgr,
blossoms.
John McGrow used to have a field- J
cr on the Giants whom old time fans, -
such as J. Baltimore and others, will j
n member as Benny Kaull. Kauff we-'
caked “The Shrinking Violet.” Of’
course you get the point—he was the ;
toughest nut in baseball during that j
unhappy time. i
But we arc coming to the violet
later. Jusl now we will consider j
peach blooms and pear blooms ano
the like.
Last Monday l . c. suuie, wm. i-,
thoughtful and observant, express* 11
surprise that the*cpld spell had not;
idoped every fruit bloom in Clove -!
laud county, and in the whole ofj
North Carolina for the matter of that. |
Monday was cold enough to cause
Clyde Nolan to put on his overcoat,
Mr. Ebeltoft’s thermometer fell to
forty, and the wind out of the east
ffit a though it was full ofpin
points. Mr. Suttle awoke Tuesday
morning, after the chill of the moon
less night,, ami said to himself it is
11 over with the fruit.
And he regretted the peaches.
And many thought as he did, tha* I
all the friut vyas gone—frozen in the:
bloom, without a chance.
But it developed the apple tree
stood out in their gay regalia ot
n-ing Tuesday morning'as bold ana
blight as ever, like beacons of light
in the gloom of the day. Not a bud,
not u petal was frozen,—not even
nioped. And it was the same with the
pear, and the other trees.
The conclusion was plain. Fruit
blossom the blossoms of the fruit that
delights the natives in these parts is
tough. They are tough, hardy, and
then some.
The idea prevalent in the land that
because you see alleged delicate pinks
and reds and creams and whites on I
the trees it must of necessity be and
continue warm, or all is lost, is a
plain bull.
Which brings us along after a delay
—to the violet, the shrinking violet.
Violets are supposed to bloom in
the spring. There is a song to the ef
fect that violets bloom in the spring
And a violet is supposed to be so
lender and delicate that they shrink
from the heat or cold with a sensi
tiveness almost’unknown in nature

American Legion will stage a mem

I by J. Horace Grigg, commander of
j post.
It is the aim of Legion officials to
enroll every ex-service man in the
county if possible. At least 100 new
members are anticipated during the
campaign.
Beneficial Here
The work of the local post has pro
ven beneficial to ex-service men
seeking aid there and it is thought
that other ex-service men will find
the organization worthwhile and ser
ving their best interests.
Renewed interest has been shown in
general club activity recently by the
i post, a smoker and banquet being
held recently at which ex-service men
of the county were guests.
Following n cold snap the
local realty mar! seem* to have
settled back on a steady and ac
tive basis.
Renewed activity is being seen
in realty circles and Highway
20, after a shivering spell, is
: gain the scene of numerous
cars loaded with prospect.- going
out and customers coming hack.
With the visit her.' bf several
out-of-town buyers tl.i d ght de
pression of the cold nan disap
peared and local dirt sale man
have been viewing with each
other in ‘‘showing off Caro
lina's fastest growing town.by the
official census.”
Cpusiderable building is going
on now in various sections of the
t vvn. Of much interest to those
who have been watching realty
activity is the building along the
rlevdaral Snrings road. The

Miss Fannie llarrill Digs up Interest
ing Occurrence Which Happened
Here 16 Years Ago.
Mi'---, Fannie Harrill. of Charlotte,
who has been employed 1 y the Bell
Telephone Co., was sent tf- Raleigh,
last week to do research work for the
telephone company. This research
work is to get information for the
coming celebration of the fiftieth
anniversary of the telephone being
tried out in the larger cities of
North Carolina. This research Work
,vAn done at the State library at Ra
leigh. The Charlotte Observers were
examined as far back as 1R79.
There were other interesting
things dug up from the past, besides
telephone items. Imagine M;ss liar
rill’s suprrise on examining the Ob
servers of 1R80—finding this item
from Shelby:
“A farmer living in Shelby, had
p'ar.ted a large cotton crop, and he
.was very blue over continued dry
weather. His cot.on was suffering for
lack of rain. lie decided that he would'
ask Dr. Hudson, a very deeply spir
itual man:—-one who believed great
ly in praper—to pray for rain. He did
so, and he was so sure of the rain
after the promise of the preacher to
pray for rain, that: he told the neigh
bor:. to carry their umbrellas that
dav for there would be rain. About
2 o’clock it began to rain—rained on
the farmer’s fields of cotton, f, 1
three successive days, and did not
rain in Shelby.”
The farmer was Miss Fanny Hpr
rills father the late John Harrill. 'the
farm where the cotton was planted,
was the land where the hospital now
stands, and the Hull farm back of
the hospital. The preacher who pra;. -
ed for rain was Dr. Hudson, the be
loved pastor of Central Methodist
church, father of the bite Tom Hod
s', n. He lived where Mr. \V. 11. Hull
now lives. A number of people stood
cn the corner where Campbell’s store
now stands, and saw a hard rain for
three days in succession, on the farm
ers cotton. There are those in Shelby
who remember this occurrence. Uncie
Dock Suttle and other remember it
Miss Harrill was a tiny girl when this
happened. She has heard it spoken of
very often.

Church Gathering Commends Reli
gious Work of Deaf Mute Here
Who Holds Services
“The deaf will be made to hear.”
A Shelby man. deaf since birth,
apparently had faith, literal faith, in
that passage from the Holy Book.
For several months Andrew C. Mil
br. Jr., a mute has been holding re
ligious services for the mutes of this
section of the state, lecturing, ad
vising and preaching to them, his
neople. And now his noble work is
being rewarded by those who have
been attracted to it.
One of the features of the Spring
meeting of the Kings Mountain Pres
bytery held at Forest City this week
was the nrnise accorded Mr. Miller
for the fine work he is doing.
The resolution ns passed by the
gathering reads: “That the Presby
tery of Kings Mountain commends
Andrew C. Miller; Jr., for the inter
est he Is manifesting in the spiritual
welfare of the deaf mutes of the
Synod of North Carolina. The Pres
bytery hereby expressing its appre
ciation of this important work and
assures Mr. Miller that it stands
ready to assist him in making his
work permanent by referring it to
the favorable consideration of the
Synod of North Carolina.”
Which means that in addition to
aiding in the work the presbytery
will ask the state synod to take note
of th« retnarkahle services being
held bv Mr. Miller.
Many Worship Places
On the second Sunday in each
month Mr. Miller preaches in the
Shelby Presbyterian church to the
mutes of this section. On practically
all other Sundays he holds services ■
for his people in nearby cities, Hick
ory. Lenoir, Morganton and else,
where. Numbers gather here for the
monthly services and it is not known
just how many of these unfortunates
i are afforded an opportunity of reli
| yious worship through his services,
which has been yiven yratis just for
[the love of h:s people.
An additional point of interest to
the services is added by his wife,
who leads the singing and otherwise
assists in the sendees.
Makes Good Report
Rev. H. N. McDiarmid and Mr.
! L. A. Gettys, representing the Shelby
| church at the presbytery, which met
Tuesday and adjourned -Wednesday
afternoon, turned in the best report
ever made from the local church.
Sixty-four additions were made to
the church roll, and during the year
■i cohyreyation of only 241 members
contributed $15,842 to all church
causes.
Rev. W. W. Akers, of Lineolnton,
was elected moderator, succeediny
[Dr. I. S. McElroy, of Kings Moun
| tain.
On Sunday, May 9, Rev. W. G.
[ Goble will be installed as Presbyter
ian pastor at Cherryville and Rev. H.

have charge of the installation and
