T st1k» About Reformatory
Plan fer County.
Judge John P. Mull of the Re
corder s court of Cleveland county,
addressing the Shelby Kiwanis c*u
last week stated that he did not
know what to do a--;tii men( charg
ed wi.h non-support of their fami
lies and boys who break ihe law.
Judge Mull suggested a work
house fer the foimer. We think
thi a wise suggestion, if it can be
worked out. Cleveland is not the
only county in the state that faces
the same problem. Judge Mull also
1 taLeo that he favored a reforma
tory for boys, or a cottage at
Jackson Training school. lie also
said: “Rutherford county proposed
some time ago to join Cleveland in
building a cottage at Jackson
Training school, out nothing has
ever been done,”
The News would like to inform
the good citizens of Cleveland cour
y that Rutherford went ahead and
built the said cottage. It was open
id and formally dedicated on last
July 1. Rutherford now has fifteen
boys at this institution and can get
us many as thirty-two should the
occasion demand it.
This is the best money that Ruth
erferd county ever spent. The cot
tage cost Si 1,000 fully equipped. It
has already done much good and
saved this county hundreds, yes,
ev* n thousands of dollars in court
costs, jail fees, etc., saying noth
ing of the betterment for manhood
and character and worry by par
ents over wayward sons.
We would urge the good people
of Cleveland county to build a cot
tage at the state industrial school
for boys. It would bo money wisely
If a number of the leading citi
zens of Cleveland county will go
down to the institution and see
Rutherford’s cottage, also that of
rine other progressive counties of
the state and just what this school
is doing for the young manhood of
i our state they will come back home
so enthused that they will never
rest until such a cottage is built

be learned officials here say that
was the last the victims ever heard
from Shook. VV. B. Garrison, post

self to become* a ‘‘victim’’ by ans

Lady Who Spends Summers in

Springs r:id is a well known
figure on the Shelby streets.

bungalow in the sun for a palace
set among spreading trees.
Mrs. H. M. Wilder, the only fem
inine owner of a Charlotte sky
scraper, and the only person who
can boast of a “cliff dweller’s”
bungalow likes being “above” the
city. But do rot mistake her mean
ing. She doesn’t for one moment (
consider that she is “better” be-i
cause of her “exalted” position.
She likes it because it spells
home to her—the spot on which
she has resided for more than 35
years; she enjoys the quiet seclu
sion of her bungalow home which
because of its location enables her
to keep in direct touch with the
throbbing, pulsating life of the
downtown section, a thing she
would miss after having been a:
part of it so long.
No matter which way she turns, j
east, west, north, south—she has ar.;
unobstructed view of the city, the
growth of which she has watched
since its infancy. It gives her a
thrill of pride as she observes evi
dences of growth and progress on
Mrs, Wilder first conceived the
idea of building a bungalow on the
top of the ten- story building which
was recently completed at Tryon
and third streets, while in New
York at the* home of her daughter
and son-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Ken

“I just want a place to put my J
trash,” Mrs. Wilder told her
daughter, ‘and I don’t want another
large home to live in all alone, now !
thu„ my children are all grown ai d;
gone away from me.” Upon looking
out of the apartment window on
Riverside drive, Mrs. Wilder saw
across the street a bungalow built
upon the roof of the tall brick

and forthwith made plans to in

mantels, mirrors, beautiful cut

done in oils. All these and more
have been saved from the old home
which stood or this spot.
But household furnishings are
not all that Mrs. Wilder has
brought from her old home into
this new and modern abode. She has
brought Louis, a colored man-ser

Somehow the very latest thing in
conveniences and decorations noted
in the Wilder bungalow and the
very old, very rare antiques and

No doubt this is so, because it is

Of Cleveland Fair
Up in Cleveland county prepara
tions are being made for one of
the biggest county fairs ever held
in North Carolina. The county fair
grounds located on highway No.
20, a few miles this side of Shelby,
have been enlarged this summer
in order to properly utsplay the
bountiful crop, the cattle e.ad the
poultry so that the people from all
sections of the state may know
What Cleveland county is doing.
The advertising value the county
and merchants will get from this
fair will be worth thousands of
dollars. It will be a big boost for
the farmers and encourage them
to grow more and better crops.
We are wondering why Meck
lenburb county should not have a
county fair where the tall corn, the
hay, the peas, the fine cattle, the
poultry, etc., could be displayed ir.
an attractive way. It would not
only show the people of this coun
ty what is being pane in Mecklen
burg but would bring tnousands
of visitors from other counties.
Many from this county wilt visit

University to Be
Duke in Carolina
With an endowment which ulti.
mutely is to reach the gigantic sum
of from $80,000,000 to $100,000,
000, the Duke University of Dur
ham, N. C., is now building a plant
which will involve the construction
of sixty buiddings at a cost of
about $25,000,000. It is estimated
that it will take six years to com
plete this gigantic construction
program. The work now under wav
is costing about ?:100,000 monthly.
Involved in this undertaking will
been medical and hospital group
costing about $4,000,000 with an en
downment of $6,000,000. The site of
the university is on a tfact cf luod
covering 1100 acres, which is con
nected with a 4,000-acre tract with
riparian rights owned l>y the uni
versity On both sides of the New
Hope river. The original endowment
by Mr. Duke of $40,000,000 is to be
increased by sett Mg’ aside a por
tion of the income until the endow
ment has reached $80,000,000
but it is estimated that jn the
course of time the endowment will
aggregate at least SI00,000,000
apd possibly continue with an al
most indefinite expansion.
The py>positiun is one of such
tremendous magnitude that it is
difficult to visualize what this in
stitution will mean to the educa
tional work, not of the South but
of the entire country. It might not
be inappropriate to suggest to the
trustees of this university that
they establish in connection with
its work a school of technology and
research equal in facilities to the
greatest technological school in
America. It would be difficult to
exaggerate the Importance el

richly edowed and giving to the
students of the South opportuni
