Dr. George Morgan Ward, pastor ol Poinclana, chapel, on joys the distinction of! having ministered to the spiritual1 needs of Palm Beach. Fla., for more tha nthirty years. He is known as the “Bishop of Palm Beach ” The Ananias club flourished in Palm Beach during the early part of the present century, and its members Included some of the most prominent men of nfl'affs in America. “Yes.” mused Dr. Ward. “I am the only one left now.

"In order to qualify,’’ he continu ed, "one had to be a first class spinner of yarns." And it was on the strength of the following story that Dr. Ward was elected to the presidency of this famous organization: Rattled For The Police. It seems ns though an old Flor ida Cracker met a rattlesnake one day as he wandered thiough the swamps, and he thought it had a singularly friendly gleam in Its eyes, so lie took it home with him and it became a great jiet. Unlike the historical character who warm ed a viper in his bosom, this old Cracker received only the greatest manifestations of friendship from the snake, and the two became great pals, Like Mary’s lamb, it fol lowed him about, and when he sat down on a log to doze and to dream the snake would coil itself down by him and rest its head on his knee. One night when all seemed calm and peaceful, a pale moon illum ined the sable plush of night, a marnuder broke into the house. The old man was helpless for a neigh bor had borrowed his shotgun, but the snake came to the rescue. Pouncing upon the burglar, it wound itself about his body, pin-1 ioning his arms to his side, and j then shook its rattlers out of the j windows to call the police. . Joe Jefferson, according to Dr. | Ward, was also expert in the gentle ' art of telling a good story, and he challenged any of the members to disprove them. Many of his stories were based on his experiences on the rood, Dr. Ward relates the fol lowing : "I was down at Joe’s house one day—it was here in Palm Bench— and some workmen were uncrating n bed. Joe explained that the bed was a present from an admirer in Colorado. 1 asked him if a bed were not rather a strnnge gift, and he admitted that it was. but said that during the preceding season he had been playing ‘Rip Van Winkle’ in a small Colorado town, when a man came to his room at the hotel and told him that it had certainly been SALE OF PERSONAL PROPERTY As administratrix of the estate of J.

I shall never forget It, and f would like to do something for you that would show my appreciation. Joe said he told him that merely coming and expressing his appre ciation was sufficient. But the fel- j low' was insistent, and finally told ; him that lie was a manufacturer of beds and springs, and that his i name was Smith. He declared that he wanted to make a bed especially for Mr. Jefferson, and asked him where he should send it. Mr. Jeffer son told him to send it to him in Palm Beach. “ 'The fellow started to leave,' said Joe, 'und half way out of the door he returned and made this somewhat extraordinary request. ‘Mr. Jefferson,' says he, “you could do something for me, too, if you would. You know when Rip wakes after his twenty years’ sleep and feels all stiff and old? Well, if you could Just make him say. 'If I'd been sleeping on Smith’s beds I wouldn't feel this way,’ it would mean a lot to me.’" "Joe Jefferson enjoyed the bed very much, but whether or not he ever Interpolated the lines is some what doubtful.” Chauncey M. Depew. according to Dr. Ward was fond of telling the story about the man who asked him for a pass on the New York Central railroad, of which Mr. De pew was at that time president. Depew asked him why he thought he ought to have a pass, “Because I am your neighbor,' answered the man, “I live near you in Peekskill." "Well," responded Mr. Dcpew, "that may all be true, but tfhv should that entitle you to a pass over the New York Central lines?” “I thought of course you would look ufter your neighbors,” he re plied in a highly offended tone. "Well, look here,” continued Mr.' Depew, “suppose I should come over to your house and ask you to hitch up your horses and carriage and drive me over to New York Just because you happened to be my neighbor. Wouldn’t you think I was presumptions?” “Maybe so," the man conceded, "but If I was already hitched up and going your way I'd take you along." He got the pass.

Lockhart, Atty., Durham, N.C. Henry M. Flakier al&o enjoyed this story very much, according to Dr, Ward, as he, too, was beseiged for passes. Dr. Ward said that one of the foremost legal minds in the country was lost to the public when Judge Horace Russell had the mis fortune to fall heir to millions. Dr Ward tells an amusing story of wit in the 1880s, This Judge Russell presided at a dinner given as sort of a consolation affair to a man "'ho had just missed being mayor of New York. He missed it on ac count of talking too much. Con tradictory statements which he had made, published side by side, lost him the election, but he was a good fellow personally and had a wide following, and the dinner was by way of taking the sting out of de feat. Russell, during the course of the dinner, told the following story: "A certain prominent man who is here was going up Fifth avenue the other night. He had looked too long upon the wine when it was red, and was in that genial state when the pavement seemed to rise up and when the lamp post seem ed comforting. Another man hap pened along. That man is also here tonight. The second man, see ing the reeling one, and recogniz ing him, hurried up, and took him by the arm. ‘“An’ who mi’ shoo be?’ asked the first man. But the good Sa maritan would not tell him. He took him to his home, braced him while he felt through his pockets for the key, opened the door and turned him over to the butler. Al though opportuned many times, he would not tell his name. Finally, though, he said that he was St. Paul. Both of those men, gentle COMMISSIONER'S LAND.

"Mr. Toastmaster,” he * said, “I am glad you told that story, for now I can reveal myself. X was the St. Paul who guided you home.” But Judge Russell was not to be outdone. “Indeed. ’ he said. ‘‘I am de lighted that you have Identified yourself. St. Paul. I have always wanted to meet you, and to ask you if you ever received an answer to that letter you wrote to the Ephe sians.” ' In view of the many letters that the guest of honor had written, and the subsequent wide publicity they had had, the effect produced by the judge's answer was all that could be desired. Though a past master in the art of acting, Joe Jefferson always had stage fright at a banquet and never learned to make a graceful after dinner speech. One night he was given a banquet by some of the pioneer citizens of West Palm Beach. He was a heavy property holder in West Palm Beach, and in a hotel he had built he had reserv ed a room for concerts and enter tainments that might add to the town's cultural development. The banquet was the town’s way of showing gratitude. In vain Jeffer son pleaded with Dr. Ward to re spond in his behalf when he was toasted. This Dr. Ward refused to do. saying it was high time he learned to speak in pubic. The next morning Jefferson told Dr. Ward and other friends about the affair. ‘‘It didn’t go off at all,” he said, “and my speech was a perfect wash out. They had all praised me until I felt utterly silly, and in making my reply I said that my room was probably better than my company. I thought it rather a neat pun, but they took it that the 'company re ferred to themselves, and one by one they all tiled out.” One day, while Jefferson and Dr. Ward were fishing together on the Breakers pier, a boy delivered a telegram to the actor. It was from his son, William, who was then in New Orleans, and it read, "Please , wire $50 at once.” Jefferson wired back, "What for?” and before the two had left the pier the reply came, "For Willie.” According to Dr. Ward, Jeffer son starred in "Rip Van Winkle” three years after he was stone deaf, and not able to hear the other ac tors or himself. He knew his part and all the others so perfectly that by reading the lips, he knew his own cues. "Good old Joe is gone, and so is Flagler, and so is Depew, and all the rest. I am the only one left now,” mused Dr. Ward. "That was as fine a lot of fellows as ever liv ed. They told some great stories, and none of them was of such a nature that they couldn’t be re peated in any drawing-room. "Th^s Palm Beach isn’t the Palm Beach that I remember, but we must all submit to the inevitable changes that come with time.” And though Dr. Ward enjoys reminiscing about the past, he is keenly alert to problems of the present. He handles a fund which is used to help the needy, and es pecially those who come to Palm Beach in the hope of finding em ployment. Dr. Ward spends his summer near Boston. He was president of Wells college, in Massachusetts for many years, and was president of Rollins college in Winter Park, Fla. He was bom in Lowell, Mass., in 1859. Whoops, Mule!

S. Lockhart. Attorney, Durham, N. C. Charlotte Shieks Are “Cheap Skates” As Girl Relates It Visiting: Date Thinks Boys There Show Their Scottish An cestry Well. Charlotte Observer. Some Charlotte chaps may an swer to the name of Ivan Iskovitch, Solly Goldstein, Max Schmelllng. Pierre du Bonbon of Benito Mus solini, but they’re all Scotch when it comes to the ancient art of “dating.” That, at any rate, is the opinion of a certain young lady who has visited the Queen City extensively and has watched the Charlotte young blades in action when the moon was full—and they weren't necessarily. “Charlotte boys are all right and I wouldn’t say anything against the dear things for the world,” she con fided to this humble reporter, "but they are really tightwads when it comes to taking out their girl friends. Somebody told me that there used to be an old Scotch preacher hereabouts by the name of Alexander Craighead who taught freedom and frugality. I think the Charlotte boys are still under the influence of his sermonizing.” The boy who takes his lady love out for a nice quiet evening in New York—a thoroughly sober and dig nified evening—figures on spending from $26 to $50 before he dismisses the taxi driver at the curb in front of his apartment at 2 a. m. But the Charlotte Romeo feels that he has been held up if he is forced to put out more than two whole bucks according to this young lady. Yes, Charlotte boys are nice lads. They have good lines and all that and some of them can play bridge excellently—lots of them pre fer playing bridge, for it’s cheaper —and they have beautiful manners. But they don’t exactly go bankrupt taklnsr out their dates. ‘1* Dis A System?" "One thing I have noticed about them is that they invariably drop by a little late. Then it's too late to go out. They explain that they have been detained ‘on business.’ Well, in a way, that’s right. It’s a good business to miss a show when the tickets aren’t complimentary. Others, I have observed, would ra ther Just ride around. Some prefer to sit and talk. "And another thing. Try and get a date with a Charlotte boy on a night when there's a road show in town.” But there are a lot of these visit ing gifls who are entirely unreason able, protest the Charlotte boys. For one thing, the visiting girls often want some special brand of cigar ettes, and those cigs aren't given away. The average Charlotte "date,” however, it has been estimated aft er checking the record sheets of a number of Queen City young men, would proceed something after this manner: Movie—not over..$1.50 Drug store later, not over_.30 Oas—Maybe two gallons .. „ .44 Totals . $2.24 In case she wanted to eat and they found the one possible place open after the theater, you might add, say two dollars if she's unusual ly hungry. And, well, a box of can dy, that’s three more bucks, but then that’s an event in a lifetime and most unlikely. And liquor? Oh! No! No! Tis never done. Mercy, No! The Star Twinkles. Kings Mt. Times. Due to varying conditions stars twinkle more brightly at times than others. On Friday, March the first, The Cleveland Star twinkled bright ly before its thousands of read ers throughout Cleveland county and elsewhere. It had literally ex panded into the size of a metropoli tan newspaper with a variety of in teresting timely newsmatter togeth er with enough local advertising to bring smiles of gratification to any publisher in the state. But why shouldn't The Star ex pand? Shelby is making great im provement and The Star merely re flects the development. This is the business of a real newspaper and the Shelby paper certainly “knows its business.” Of course the edition to which we allude was the one devoted to the opening of Shelby’s New Hotel Charles, which occupies a con spicious place in the Cleveland county metropolis. The new hotel, though not the largest, is one of the most elegant and modern in the state, it being a seventy-room, fire-proof structure with a capac ity for 260 guests. The completion of the hotel comes at a time when Cleveland county looms prominently in the limelight and it is a fitting mon ument to the progressiveness of the business men and citizenship of Shelby and Cleveland county. And this example should be followed by other towns. We congratulate Shelby upon the completion of the handsome struc ture and The Star upon the suc cess of the Hotel edition. Progress In Tnrkey.
