OF PIU FIRM
Announcement was made here
Thursday that the Paragon Furni
ture company sold the undertaking
department of its business to Jack
Palmer. The formal transfer of
equipment and stock was made at
The deal, while it has been learn
ed was pending for some sixty days
or more, caused a ripple of sur
prise in business circles here. Ac
cording to statements from both
parties to the transaction, the deal
will, on the other hand enable the
Paragon to concentrate all its en
ergies to the furniture department,
»nd in the ease of Mr. Palmer will
give him a broader field of opera
tion, and one of the best equipped
mortuary establishments in the
The Paragon operated the under
taking department over a period of
nine years. During part of that
time Jack Palmer was a member
of the firm. About a year and a
half ago Mr. Palmer branched off
for himself, and established a pri
vate funeral home.
The equipment which the Para
gon disposed of, along with the
good will of the business, was ex
tensive and modern, composing a
new fine ambulance. The Paragon
is announcing in The Star today
that the firm will henceforth con
centrate all its energies to the un
building of its furniture depart
ment, which will be made more
extensive than ever before.

County Officials Have
Big Task In New Budget
Office Of County Accountant And Purchasing Agent A Full
Time Job. Cline In Hole Now. Need Additional
The new state wide county bud
get and accountant plan is offering
problems for Cleveland county of
ficials. The plan, which goes into
effect with the first of the new
business year, July l, requires a
full time combination countv ac
countant and purchasing agent and
a complete budget system of fi
A. E. Cline chairman of the coun
ty commissioners, is now devoting
considerable time to arranging an
outline budget which must be sub
mitted by July 1. In the interim
Mr. Cline is acting as county ac
countant by appointment of the
commissioners, Mr. Cline, despite
the insistence of numerous citi
zens and leaders, has not decided
whether or not he will remain as
county accountant after the system
is in working order.
Us* Budget Now.
Although there is considerable
trouble in arranging an exact bud.
get the system will not prove so
hard in this county as the commis
sioners two years ago began to
use a similar budget plan.
By the state-wide budget plan
every county must at the begin
ning of the year submit a budget
with appropriations for the vari
ous departments of county govern
ment. Thereafter all purchases and
sales will be made through the
county accountant, or purchasing
agent, nothing being purchased or
handled without his endorsement.
The plan is similar to the county
government reform advocated for
several years. Counties where the
system is already in use find that i
the accountant’s job is a full time]
affair necessitating the aid of a ,
Lack Office Space.
Details of the new plan have not
been worked out by the commis- j
sioners, Messrs. Cline, R. L. Weath
ers and W. W'. Washburn, but pre
liminary plans are being made. In
the panning the commissioners
are at loss to know where office
space in the court house may be
found for the accountant’s office.
Every available office in the build
ing is now in use and the commis
sioners may find it necessary to
use the present ladies rest room
for the office of the new county
Mr. Cline was consulting county
and city officials here this week
to see if other arrangements could
be made for a rest room should it1
be decided that the office space is
The matter of salary for the
county accountant is left up to the j
commissioners and Mr. Cline say3 j
that until the begining of the new |
year he is finding out as much,
about the new system as possible.;
When definite plans are made the
salary of the new county official
will be taken up. It seems a rath-j
er general opinion that the corn-!
mission chairman is the man for;
the place at least for the first ]
year or so of the budget system
as it is thought that someone fam
iliar with county affairs, as well
as a good business man, should
have charge of the important of
Of Goode Robbed
Gaffney, May 19.—Burglars rob
bed the store of G. Lee Goode at
Blacksburg early yesterday morn
ing of $200 to $300 worth of men’s
clothing, women’s silk hosiery, a
quantity of dress goods, several (
suit cases, and other articles, ac-,
cording to reports received here.
Entrance to Mr. Goode’s store
appeared to have been made by
prizing off the bars and break
ing the glass in the window in the
rear of the building. The burglars
left by the door, having opened it
from the inside.
That the robbery was carefully
planned in advance was evidenced
by the fact that night Policeman
Childers was lured away from the
vicinity by a false telephone mes
sage asking him to hasten to the
Broad River Mills, where he was
told some hoboes were creating a
disturbance on the tracks of the i
Southern railway near the mill '
Mr. Childers answered the call,
promptly, and it was while he was
attending to this duty that the (
robbery was accomplished.
Mr. Goode, it was learned, had
recently dropped a burglary insur
ance policy that he had been car
rying for some time. He allowed
the policy to lapse at its expira
tion because he felt that the prem
ium was too high, it was stated.
Mr. Goode’s store was robbed a
year or two ago when a series of
burglaries occurred in Blacksburg.
Friday 20th It
Bad Hanging Day
Watch your step in Shelby
today and don’t get a rope
about your neck!
According to several old
timers Friday, May 20t>h, was
once known an “hanging day”
hereabouts. Although a check
op of old Superior court rec
ords failed to reveal definite
information, Mr. J. A. Wilson
says that as he remembers it
somebody was hanged here on
May 20. 1900. and that 27
yearn prior to that, or May 20,
1873, there was another hang
ing. By simple arithmetic 27
years elapsed between the two
hangings, and 27 years has
elapsed since the one in 1000
—and it’s May 20th again.
Thus far today no hangings
have been reported to sustain
the record of one every 27
years on today’s date.

GEN. COX PRAISES
"State Produced no Finer Soldier
or Citizen Than Late Colonel
Gardner.” Big Meeting.
Brigadier General Albert Cox
brought forth a round of applause
Thursday night when he declared
the late Co). J. T. Gardner whom
he had served with on the Mexican
border and on other occasions was
“as fine a soldier and citizen as
North Carolina has ever produced.”
General Cox was speaking at a
joint meeting of Kiwanis members
and local legionaires,, 126 in num
ber at Cleveland Springs hotel on
the occasion of memorial for the
late war veterans. He hud praise
for Pat McBrayer with whom he
had served at Camp Seevicr, for
Max Gardner, a college mate and
friend who aspires toNt>e known as
the “friendly governor” if he is
elevated to the chief executive’s
chair in North Carolina.
General Cox is a soldier and
statesman, one of the edming men
of North Carolina, declared Max
Gardner in his introduction. Mr.
Gardner recalled that General Cox
with a splendid war record to his
credit, resigned from the Supreme
court bench in North Carolina
when this country entered the
world war and organized an artil
lery unit, functioned faithfully at
home and abroad and ,was made
brigadier general of the reserve
corps when he returned.
Tribute to La>Fayette.
The occasion marked the anni
versary of the birth of the Marquis
DeLaFayette who left comfort and
position in France and came to
America in the time of our revolu
tion to help us gain independence,
so General Cox declared it to be a
fitting occasion to pay a tribute
to the American soldiery who help- „
ed France and the other allied na
tions in the recent world war.
War is horrible and General Cox
upheld the preachments against
war, saying no one wanted war but
the profiteer. Especially it is de
spised by men who have gone
through one on the battle front
and have experienced its horrors.
Tribute was made to the men who
offered their services in the big
conflict, many of whom came home
wrecked in physical strength and
torn asunder in mental power. “We
think of them as well as those who
never returned, but lie in Franco
to enshrine the battlefields of Eu
rope with noble sentiments,” de
clared General Cox.
Our leadership in industry and
our vigor in North Carolina places
great responsibilities and duties
upon us and General Cox said no
county in North Carolina is meas
uring up so well in citizenship as
Our forces in the World war wore
known as American expeditionary
forces, but it meant more than that.
The A meant accomplishment and
ambition, the E effort and endeav
or, the F fortitude and faith and
each bf these virtues were applied
in a beautiful and telling way to
the soldiery of America.
