BIG NIGHT HERE
Plan One of Local Lodge’s Biggest
Gatherings. Past Masters
To Stage Work.
Members of the local Masonic
lodge, Cleveland No. 202, are plan
ning one of the biggest events in
the history of the lodge for nexi
Tuesday evening at 7 o’clock in
the Masonic temple here.
Work by past masters is the of
ficial title of the special meeting,
but there will be numerous side
lights and events of interest to Ma
sons in this section. Third degree
work will be put on by past masters
only with past masters in every
chair and office in the Blue lodge,
it is said. The first portion of the
ceremony will be in modern re
galia, vehile the second part will be
in the ancient full dress.
Many Past Masters.
The local Masonic lodge enjoys
the unique distinction of having
perhaps more past masters in its
membership than any other lodge
in this section of the country
Present officials of the lodge say
that there are now 16 past masters
in the Cleveland lodge. Not all of
these however, were masters of the
local lodge, but they all belong here
Several neighboring lodges, such
as Cherryville and King% Moun
tain, will be invited and practically
the entire membership of the local
ard county lodges is expected.
Masons who know of the meet
ing arc urged to pass the word of
the meeting along and prepare for
one of the greatest, if not the great

Home Agent Says
Women Can Help
Mrs. Wallace Thinks Farmers
Business Partners Should
Have Attended Meeting.
Mrs. Irma Wallace, home demon
stration agent, found only one fault
with the big farm meeting hell
here yesterday. “The women—the
business partners of the farmers—
should have been at the meeting
also,” she says.
The home agent is of the opin
ion that much more good would
have come from the meeting had
the farm women of Cleveland
county been present. The women,
she says, have much to do with the
food and feed crops, the vegetables
and gardens planned in diversifica
tion whereby the farmer will feed
However, Mrs. Wallace hopes to
impress the farm women of the
county with the plan of producing

County Boards In
Dull Session For
New Year Meeting
I-ittlo of Public Interest Comes up
At First Regular Meetings
Of New Year.
The county boards—commission- j
ers and education—meeting here
this week transacted little business
of general interest as their first
work in the New Year.
Although there was a good “fir. t
Monday” crowd in town few de
mands of importance were laid be
fore the board and no contracts or
business of public importance were
The business of the commission
ers for the most part was routine
only. A few citizens appeared be
fore the hoard and talked taxes, a
subject so customary that it per
haps passes under the routine work.
Practically the same situation
prevailed at the meeting of the
board of education. Several app!'
eat'ons were made for new wells
and a public bid of $100 and a pri
vate bid of $300 for the old Double
Springs building and site were re
jected. An application was heard
from the Bethlehem district calling
for a special tax election to erect
a new' school building. Owing to a
legal technicality in the county
wide plan the board deferred action
on the application until their next
Shelby Man Grows
17,000 Bushels Of
Prunes In Oregon
Bob Eskridge and Ed Oates, Form
er Shelby Men Own Big
Bob Eskridge, former Shelby cit
izen who has been spending the
Christmas holidays with his moth
er, Mrs. Bailey Eskridge and sis
ter, Mrs. Colin Hull, returns Sat
urday to Sheridan, Oregon where
he has been living for about sixteen
years. Bob and Mr. Ed Oates, an
other former Shelby citizen, own
large orchard interests in Oregon,
having over 20,000 bearing apple
prune and cherry trees. Upon his
return, Bob says his next duty is to
see to the pruning of the trees.
They harvested last season 17,000
bushels of prunes, 8,000 boxes of
apples and great quantities of
black cherries, which are usually
seen on the Eastern markets in
early spring. The prune, apple and
cherry crop last year was a bumper,
but prices were somewhat like the
price that has prevailed on cotton,
consequently the orchard industry
has suffered. Mr. Eskridge says
most of the prunes are in the ware
house waiting better prices which
may or may not come. As for ap
ples, the crop was so large and
the price so low that fully 7,00(1
boxes were never harvested at all.
Sheridan is west of the mountain
slope so the climate is delightful.
Within a few hours drive in the
summer, one can reach the snow
capped mountains or the sun-kissed
surf where bathing is delightful.
Against Gulf Plant
A civil action for damages has
been instituted in Cleveland coun
ty by Attorneys Peyton McSwain
and Speight Beam against the Gulf
Refining company seeking to ob
tain damages to the property of
their client, Tom McCoy. It is al

Gulf plant built it? storage tanks

McCoy that the McCoy property
has been damaged and that the pe
troleum products are highly ex

Gardner And Millsaps Urge Farmers To
Cut Acreage And Avoid Ruin In Cottoii
Big Gathering of Farmers Advised
To Produce Own Fotd And
Feed For Year
If Cleveland county farmers put
every available a, re into cotton
next year and devote the scrub
patches to feed and food crops and
another 18 million bale crop comes
along; cotton will sell in Shelby
for four an 1 five cents per pound
next year, according to O. Max
Gardner, who Tuesday addressed
a gathering of farmers that pack
ed the court house auditorium
“It is too late to do anything
with the present price and crop,”
Mr. Gardner declared, “but we
can make preparations for another
such year. Everybody can say the
farming futuie is not so promis
ing. but the need is a solution,
life's mine: Let every farmer in
the county get him 50 productive
hens, some hogs, some cows, and
then plant and sow enough food
and feed crops to take care of his
family and his livestock—then
plant cotton on the rest, fertilize it
good arid don’t try to cultivate
too many acres and Cleveland
county will be all right next year
despite what cotton sells for.”
The gathering 0f the farmers
was at 2 o'clock and the meeting
war. presided over by County
Agent Alvin Hardin. Mr. E. S.
Millsaps. district farm agent, was
the first speaker and in a way
that the farmers were acquainted
with, he explained the cotton pro
blem now facing the Southern
farmer and declared that the only
remedy was that to be taken by
the farmers themselves who could
and should see that they make
enough on their farms to live
At the conclusion of the meet
ing cards with a farm program
requiring no pledge whatsoever
were distributed to the several
hundred farmers in attendance.
The audience of farmers was
Derhaps the most attentive gather
ing Shelby has seen in many years.
Every farmer present apparently
realized that with cotton selling
for 12 cents a crisis faces the cot
ton farmer who does not do any
thing to help himself, and, there
fore, all seemed alert to catch
suggestions and hints as to how
they might improve ihe situation.
Mr. Gardner’s talk created a pro
found impression and for actual
worth leading farmers present
considered it superior to any
speech ever made in the county.
That the hints and tips for re
lief as dropped by the speakers
hit the mark was evidenced after
the meeting when little groups of
farmers gathered about the court
house and discussed farm pro
blems. One farmer said: “They’re
right about the chickens. I’ve got
just 50 hens and they have made
me a living this year when I did
n’t get anything for my cotton.
Another added: “Next year I’ll
have enough pork, butter and eggs
to feed myself and sell some.
What’s more I’m goin to raise
enough corn and feed to feed my
livestock and have some for sale.
That the county helped itself
quite a bit this year came out in
the talk of Mr. Gardner, who per
haps is better acquainted with the
farm situation in this county than
any other man: “For years.” Mr.
Gardner said, “We have been buy
ing the majority of our corn and
hay to feed our livestock. This
year, however. Cleveland county
raised its biggest corn crop and
kept thousands of dollars at home
that usually go out for hay. Next
year we want to keep all of it at
home and what cotton money we
do get will be clear and above liv
An interesting excerpt from Mr. j
Gardner’s speech follows:
Some one has wisely said that— :
“The saddest word of the farmer’s
tongue or pen is, ‘I have no hog. I
have no cow. I have no hen. ’ ”
Some of us are dead while we
think we are living; others live
after they are dead. But the man
who will certainly live after he is
dead is that Moses who can com
mand the confidence and lead the
South from the slavery of cotton
into the hen house, the hay stack
and the cow barn of self-reliance

AN AGRICULTURAL PROGRAM
Prosperity among Southern farmers will he widespread'
nil permanent and contentment abound only when the safe
far viin,» methods so long know n and advocated become general
throughout the South. They are: Grow ample food to feed
tho faintly—Have a good summer and winter garden; grow
all pork needed for home use; keep enough cows to supply
all family needs; raise all the poultry and eggs the family
can use and some to sell; grow cane or sorghum for sirup.
Grow all feed needed: Make the purchase of feed fur the
work stock, poultry, hogs, and cows unnecessary—a penny
saved is worth two earned.
Keep up the fertility of the sail: Grow eowpeas, vetch, j
soy beans, or other legumes to plow under; sow rye, wheat, or
oats in corn and cotton fields for pasture and to prevent
winter washing and leaching; plant highjyielding quality
cotton and Care for it well; cooperate in reducing the number
of varieties grown and in the orderly marketing of the crop.
One-fourth less cotton acreage in 1927, with average
yields and present surplus would more than supply average I
requirements. Why plant more?
The farmer who follows the above plan will have a goed
living, keep out of debt, ai d have something left over at the
end of each year. Consult your farm agent.
(The above is the contents of the card-program given farm
ers here Tuesday.)
and happy land until we cross the
Jordan, and we can never ford the
Jordan as long as we rely upon the
fickle back of a boll weevil or
the weather conditions in Texas
and Oklahoma. The jveevil saved
us in 1921 but he went back on us
in 1926; and Nature, in combina
tion with our stupidity, has taken
her course, with the result that
the South today staggers under
the burden of three million bales
of cotton that the world does not
I want. The final government esti
mate places the yield of 1926 at
j 18,618,000 bales. It is thought that
the consumption of American cot
!tor. this season will approximate
' sixteen million bales. This would
I leave a ca,rv-over of nine million
i bales at the end of the cotton year
on July 31, 1927. Today’s price of
cotton is approximately 12c a
pound below |he five year aver
age preceding 1926. The U. S.
Government’s official estimate for
growing cottdi* for the past three
years averages about 18c a pound.
Therefore the cotton farmer is to
day receiving for his cotton sever
al cents a pound below’ the cost of
production. The average price of
middling upland cotton as quoted
on the New York exchange, for the
five years beginning with the sea
son of 1921 and ending July 31,
11926, was 24.30c a pound.
There is just one certain econo
mic and agricultural fact every
thoughtful Southern citizen should
accept beyond dispute as we hon
estly look into the face of the new
year. This definite fact i3 that
another cotton crop of 18 million
bales following the 18 million bale
crop of 1926, means the utter ruin
of the South. There is no escape.
This is no exaggeration. The con
clusion is irresistible.
We must either reduce our cot
ton acreage in the South or com
mit financial suicide. We cannot
reduce our acreage with effect un
less we do something the South
ern farmer has never done before
and that is to act together, act in
concert; and we cannot act in con
cert unless we act in confidence.
Longer we mistrust each other and
deceive each other, the more deep
ly will we sink into the mire of
poverty and defeat. Let us pledge
to cut our cotton crop at least
25 percent in 1927, and show to the
| world that we can act to effect, in
concert, in .confidence and cordial,
truthful and sympathetic coopera

An incident unique in the history
of Cleveland rounty schools has
been brought about by the lack of
rainfall during the two past years,
it is learned from the detailed re
port of the meeting of the county
board of education this week.
Many school children and teach
ers in the county schools are carry
ing their drinking water to school
in bottles and buckets owing to
the drying up of wells and springs
over the county.
County Superintendent J. H.
Grigg says that for several meet
ings of the board numerous re*
quests, never heard before, are
coming in asking for new wells to
be drilled at school sites. At the
meeting this month several such
requests were heard by the board,
one coming from the Philadelphia
colored school where the water sup
ply is completely gone.
At quite a number of the schools
the wells are so dried up that only
a little water can be obtained,
while at other schools, where it has
been the custom to secure the drink
ing water from neighboring homes,
objection is being raised by home
owners that they.. do not., have
enough fresh water for their own
use wtihout supplying the school
Result of Drought.
Back in the summer numerous
well9 in many sections of the coun
ty “went dry” owing to the long
drought, marked by a few showers
in the summer and a real “dry spell’
in the fall. Recent government re
ports show that for the past two
years the deficiency in rainfall is
the greatest ever. Some few wells
and water sources have been replen
ished during the winter, but many
are still dry.
Superintendent Grigg says that
the board is doing everything pos
sible to alleviate the inconvenient

Welfare Officer J. B. Smith.
“I have now practically enough
folks looking for jobs to supply the
demand of several new manufac

The situation which confronts the
welfare officer is indirectly due to
the slum)) on the farm. Numerous
tenant farmers and others are mov
ing to town seeking employment
and the Shelby plants have a full
quota with the result that Mr.
Smith says his biggest welfare
problem is finding work for scores *
Such has been the migration to
town in recent weeks, he. says,
that practically every house in
Shelby is filled, while in the small

instances. He is daily beseiged lr
newcomers for work somewhere a
something and recently he lias filler
practically all vacant jobs in the

The welfare officer as well a
other observers about the corn
house is of the opinion that the ej>
tension of the P. and N. by Shelb;
would alleviate the situatioi
brought about by surplus of work
ers. W’ork could be obtained on the
construction of the road and the ex
tension would, or should, bring new
manufacturing plants to Shelby.
