the United States and Great Britain.
Stanley Baldwin, premier of Great

Plan To Make Fair
Pictures for Screen
That Pathe picture corporation
is considering “shooting” scenes
of the county fair here during
the fair week in September, was
learned Thursday morning from
J. C. Newton, local chamber of
commerce secretary. Pictures of
the agricultural exhibits, and of
the other features on the pro
gram will be taken.
It is understood that the head
office of the picture firm now has
the matter under consideration,
and the results will be known
some time in the near future.
The news reel bureau should be
able to get a highly interesting
series of views while the event is
on. if Governor McLean carries
out his tentative promise to be
present at the opening of the fair.
Many other notable persons, wide
ly known over the states, are to
lie present, and valuable public
ity for the town will result.
Picnic To Be In Nature of Thanks*
giving Service At County Fair
Ground Sept. 9th
Baptists of the Kings Mountain
association plan a county.wide picnic

9th, when special song and praise ser
vices will be held in Thanksgiving for
the prosperous year in the agricultural
and religious life of this section, ac- i
cording to Rev. Rush Padgett ’n j
charge of missions in the Kings Moun
tain Baptist association. The plan was
recently suggested at a meeting of the
pastors and workers council and it
was unanimously decided to hold such
a picnic at which not only all pastors,
church and Sunday school officers,
teachers and workers will be invited, j
but every Baptist in every one of the
forty or more churches which com-'
pose the Kings Mountain association.
Mr. Padgett expects an attendance
that will double or treble that of the
annual associational meetings held
Dr. C. E. Madry, secretary of the.
state mission board will be one of the
prominent speakers on the program
and other men of outstanding promin-1
ence' in denominational affairs in
North Carolina will be invited. H. M.'
Pippin, director of music at the First
Baptist church will have charge of,
the song service and many trained j
singers will lift their voices in the liu !
singers will lift their voices in the
huge grandstand where the speaking
and singing program will be rendered.
Of course everybody expects to

Irrigated Farm Is
Thirty acres is a small farm, as '
farms go, but Alvin Hardin, county
agent,, tells of seeing a farm of thir
ty acres near Danville, Va., from
which the owner sold from seventy
five to a hundred thousand dollars
worth of produce a year.
It is an irrigated farm, with a cold ;
storage plant as an adjunct. The i
acreage is a “sight” Mr. Hardin said.
The county agent is back from a
trip north, that took him as far as
Philadelphia, the jaunt being one for i
the collective body of county agents |
of the Piedmont section.
Mr. Hardin says the crops north, j
especially in the Valley of Virginia,
and in Pennsylvania, are something
to see; big herds of cattle on most
every unit; most of the cultivation
being done by machinery.
The best example of farming he
saw anywhere, he said, he saw in
Chester County, Pennsylvania, where
the corn looks like a bottom land
product, and the clover is well nigh
Autos Still Sell Well,
So Alexander Says
J. L. Alexander learned Thursday
how good he has made since he came
to Shelby. He came over, if you re- j
call, from Charlotte three months ago j
to take charge of the Dodge agency I
here, which is a branch of the Charles j
E. Lambeth Motor company, of Char- i
Thursday B. L. Eskridge, vice, j
president and general manager of the 1
Lambeth company came to Shelby
Thursday and told Mr. Alexander
that in the three months he has been
here he has increased the Dodge sales
eighty-five per cent.
Which is going some.
Discussing his success with The
Star, Mr. Alexander said: “We have '
had a great run of business, and the!
future looks even more encouraging.]
I like Shelby and am glad to be able
to stay here. I look forward to good
business and very pleasant relation-,
ships with the people.”
Wants A Bondsman
For Her Husband
It’s not necessary to read a
book to find drama. It’s all about
us, every day, in actual life. Take
the case that came up for trial
the other day in recorders’ court.
A boy was accused of assault
ing his wife with a chair. The
judge decided that there was not
enough evidence to assure crim
inal intent on the part of the de
fendant, and offered to released
him on bond for goor behaviour.
The boy was only twenty-two. lie
bad only been niarried a year; he
had r,o job and consequently was
without money. So he v. n‘ to
jail, and his wife, whom he was
accused of assaulting, is now
seeking some man w ith enough
faith in human nature to go on
the boy’s bond.

)T F08EST CITY
Analysis of Don’s Head Shows Clearly
That It Had a Case Of
From the Rutherford Sun.
Forest City. Aug. 1C.—Last Thurs
day afternoon a three months old
bull terrier, belonging to Mr. Joe Wa
ters, Mill street, when patted; bit the !
following persons: Mr, and Mis. !
Joseph Waters, their daughter, Belle,
aged 10t their nephew, Fred Waters,
aged 22, Leroy Phillips, 10 years old,
and the son of Mr. and Mrs. Ed
Phillips, of Depot street, and a color
ed boy, aged 16. The following day
the dog died and as suspicion was
aroused, the brain of the animal was
packed in ieej and sent to Raleigh for
examination. Today Pr. A. C. Dun
can received a report from the State
laboratory stating the dog was mad.
Preparations have been made to give
at once the Pasteur treatment for the
prevention of hydrophobia.
Pup Attacks All Who Pet Him
The dog was a pet and kept in ti e
yard of Mr. Waters and from the
time he received the animal it was
noted for its propewalvy to snap when
petted on the head, but nothing was*
thought of this habit. All the persons
who were bitten patted the bull ter
rier on the head as it was lying oi:
the porch or in the yard. Leroy Phil
lips was passing through the yard
on his way to the bakery when he
stopped and patted the dog, who at
once bit him on the right leg.
Dr. Smith To Preach
At Presbyterian Church

congregation of the local Presbyterian
church will have the privilege ot

Numerous Inquiries Come
To Chamber Of Commerce
Every mail contains a fresh flood
of inquiries concerning Shelby’s com
mercial, social, and health advantages,
coming from every state of the ITn
ion, acording to J. C. Newton, secre
tary of the local chamber of com
merce. He states that Thursday’s con
signment alone contained approxi
mately fifteen requests for informa
tion of some sort.
The letters contain queries vary
ing from the beneficial value of baths
in the sulphur water in Cleveland
Springs to the advisability of locat
ing a florist shop in the town. A big
underwear company, makiug a nat
ionally-advertised brand of clothing
is seriously considerable locating a
branch office plant in the South, an;}
from their letter, they seem to pre
fer Shelbv as a location. A new photo
graphic studio is almost an assured
fact, and an experienced pharmacist
also desires to locate here. The furni
ture factory that has been consider
ing a location here, has practically de
cided to come to Shelby some time
next year. Several retail grocers are
considering the advisability of open
ing a store in the town, while a hard
ware dealer, a florist, and a druggist
are also looking the matter over.
Mr. Newton says that these are only
a few of the numerous letters he haa
had. He mentioned from memory, be
sides the industries listed above, a
cloth factory, a broker from Wash
ington, Ga., a grocer from Atholl,
Mass,, an inquiry from Dover, Del., a
lumber plant, and many others. He
thinks that the bulletin of the town
is responsible for the interest shown
in Shelby during the past few days.
Another activity of the ehambej
of commerce concerns the erection ot
a new Southern station. J. W. Was
sum, general superintendent of the
railroad, stated in a communication to
the secretary that the engineer hno

that favorable action was highly

City Tore Down Grandstand At Ball

Who will build back the grandstand

administrations that the street should

to th > cemetery in order that funeral
processions might avoid the railroad
crossings. To this end a parcel of
land was bought two or three years

and front fence at the ball park had
to come down. The street encroaches
about 15 feet on the old park. School
'•pens next month and a baseball park
is essential, say the school authori
ties. Btvt from which treasury will
the money come to replace it? The
school hoard held a meeting Wednes
day and addressed a “demand” letter
to tlie city fathers, “demanding'’ that
the city either replace the grandstand

It built the fence. Can the city

city fathers argue that it widened the
street to a width of 00 feet to fulfil
a former administration's promise to
property owners in that vicinity and
a public demand for a better high
way to the cemetery. A former
school board comnosed of O. M. Mull.

others signed a paper which Mr. J. F.
Harris has, saying-that Mr. Harris

the city would widen the street to 60
feet and that the school board agreed
to the widening. Now that the street

and I!. F. Carpenter, secretary and
has created some little discussion of
the situation which has developed.
Property owners in the vicinity of
the park don’t want a fenced ground.
They will stand for the playground,
but object, to the fence. The width
of the street is unsatisfactory to the
school board because a wide street
encroaches upon the park. The grand
stand and front fence erected by the
city fathers are down to make way
for the wider street, but you can’t
collect gate receipts to run the athlet
is association without a fence. It
must be built there or a playground
provided elsewhere. When school
opens coach Morris wants to put hia
players in training. But if the fencfll
is re-erected, out of which treasury
will the money come? The school
board which sold $200,000 worth of
school bonds eight months ago doesn’t
want to bpar the expense. It says it
needs that money for buildings. The
mayor and board of aldermen will
