(adv.) Around Our TOWN Shelby SIDELIGHTS By RENN DRUM A negro man, nearing the half century mark, sitting over in the court room here yesterday listening to evidence in his preliminary hear ing on a charge of muder, various expressions flitting across his furrow ed and ginger-colored brow, proved to us a theory we have held for years —that the people of the negro race have vivid imaginations despite the general belief that they do not. I-—— The negro's name was Cliff Ful lenwider niuJTie killed hit young .rother-Ml-law Sunday afternoon in Uo^rtfd of a colored church not far distant from Shelby. But names ind details matter little in our ar gument, w hich is to show that col ored people do have minds which, fortunately or unfortunately, can 'oncelve more imaginary things han can the minds of their white irettiren. Perhaps the average nentality of the race is low, but, nevertheless, the imagination is here and it does not restrict itself ,o union hours in working. To recall all the superstitious ghost stories related by and told tn connection with members of the Slack race It Is hard to understand how anyone has ever delivered the opinion that "a colored man has no Imagination.” Ofet, right often you hear some one say, in referring to thr happy-go-lucky life colored peo ple appear to live, “they have no Imagination; they never think about tomorrow and they do not know what worry is.” That's all bologney. If you ask us, or if you do a bit of observing O'l your own part. Any mind that can picture ghorts, apparatlons and specters can vision other things. In our memory not a single col ored slayer has been placed in the county Jail, down where East War ren atreet runs Into Jones Place, who has not- during his first night in a cell visioned the face or voice of hts victim. Pew of them sleep more than an hour at a stretch for tho first few nights. It was that W'ay with Cliff Ful lenwtder. His brow filled with troubled furrows, and his half frightened brown eyes darting about the court room Tuesday morning were ample proof. Yet he told offi cers at the Jail what might be termed further proof of the ima gination of the negTo mind. "All night long I heard him (the man he shot) walking about in the sand." he said. The churchyard where the killing took place was sandy, but there Is no sand on the floors down In the county jail. Such was the cruel working of Fullen wlder's Imagination Sunday and Monday nights in jail that he not only could hear the footsteps in tihe sand but his mental worries so un strung his three colored cellmates that they. too. were unable to sleep and began to picture apparitions of their own Still some people will tell you that a colored mnn has no Imagina tion. It's pure bunk. They may be able to brush away money worries and other such troubles of life as the white man brushes the cobwebs out of his eyes on the morning rft er, but wherein dead people and spooks are concerned the negro has an Imagination from which great novels might come had they the proper education and atmosphere for the work. Not being versed in psychology we cannot explain what appears vo be the Irrefutable declaration that the reason the negro race is satis fied under existing conditions is be cause they have no imagination and cannot vision to themselves what they might be or might have been Despite that we contend that they do have mentalities capable of vi sioning things In their mind—and they may be satisfied with life as it is. We do not know, for no one can tell what is going on behind those faces laughing in care-f ee style one moment, and closing up into a frosen stoical expression the next which cannot be read.

SHELBY SHAVINGS: Trunks of travelling men piled in front of the bus terminal, corner LaFayette aind Marion streets, waiting for the next outgoing bus. Remember the boyhood days when you hung about the trains hoping to pick up a quar ter from some drummer who want ed a husky lad to help his tote his sample cases about the stores of the town? And the buggy-whip salesman, who Is no more, and the long, mummy-like sample case lie carried i" .... me mast popular Bumbling game among the colored chance-takers is the same one it used to be, if you hang about the courtrooms and listen—"skin." . . . Johnny Hudson is coming home from Maryland soon on his vaca tion. Wonder where Johnny's old gang, which once hung out at Bill Riviere’s drug store, has scattered to? Some of 'em are here, others are everywhere. Ikey Oriffin, one of the bunch, is over In Constanti nople, and most of the others, like Johnny, have married.The ambitions of the barefodt hoy> change with their heroes. Once was nearly every youth just breaking into his teens wanted to be a fire man. or a policeman, or a railroad engineer. Now they want to be aviators, golfers who can win the junior Carolbias crown, or ball players like Babe Ruth and Cline Cline Lee In another year or so the next generation of youngsters will have other ambitions. Shelby is growing up and before long it may become a man-sized city. Just yesterday we heard one of the old line citizens complain ing about the noise “Guess I’ll htive to move out where it's quirt. Can’t hear anything In town any more except buzzing traffic bells, squeak ing auto brakes, big motor trucks with tho exhausts open, hammering and banging". Isn't there some law about closed mufflers on trucks and motor cars? FOR FEAR YOU HAVEN’T EN joyed yourself, try reading this one about the $5,000 dodge (not Dodge, Mr. Litton): A young Indian. suddenly oil rich, bought a $5,000 automobile and drove away. The next day he wi s back at the sales agency, footsore, walking with a ltmp. and his head bandaged This was his explanation: * "Drive out big car; buy gallon moonshine; take big drink, step on gas. Trees and fences heap fast. See big bridge coming down road. Turn out to let bridge go by. Bang! Car gone. Gimme 'nother one." Barking Dogs Beats Fire. Glendale. Cal.—Mr. and Mrs. N. W. Morrow recently were being urged to put in a claim to the Lea gue lor Recognition ol Dumb He roes—if there is such an institution —in behalf of Napoleon Bonapaite, their Boston bull terrier. The community has not yet ceas ed sounding the praises of the little canine for the "horse sense" he dis played in barking a fire alarm that saved the Morrow home on East Bennett avenue from more serious damage. As it was the kitchen was destroyed, but only, perhaps, be cause it took Napoleon several minutes to make the Morrows un derstand what he meant when he set up a commotion after discover ing the blaze. When Mr. Morrow finally arose and followed Napoleon, he extingu ished the fire with a garden hase. A SERIOUS CHANGE Kentucky Lady Was Seriously III for Months Bnt Was Finally Relieved By Cardui. Lawrenceburg, Ky—“At a time In my life, when my health was under going a serious change,” says Mrs. J. C. Ray. who lives near here. “I found Cardul to be of the greatest benefit to me. I was seriously 111 for about two months, and for sev eral months I was not well. My nerves were all unstrung. I could not bear the least noise around me. I could not sleep. “My head ached until it seemed as If It would burst My f0et and limbs swelled dreadfully. I felt tired all the time. When I was up. I dragged around the house, but most of the time X spent on the bed. "I got Cardul and began taking it regularly. Very soon I could see that it was helping me. I began to sleep better and eat more. The awful nervousness got better. “When I had finished the first bottle, I was much better than I had been for many weeks. X was so encouraged that X kept right on. Before very long I was doing all my housework and was feeling quite well.” Thousands of other women have been helped by Cardul after long suffering from weakness and ner vousness. NC-198 Men From Cabin Doors. i By S. Frontis.) Wc boast about our modern schools And methods up to date, And all these new tangled ways About which teachers prate; And point with pride to buildings Where they teach all sorts of love, But they don’t turn out the schol ars That came from cabin doors. The fundamentals are not taught As they used to be. They’re out of dale as much today As the "Rule of Three.” There's too much haste to cover ground. The fact wc all deplore, To ever turn such scholars out As came from cabin doors. Pupils pass from book to book With a hop, skip, and a jump And the books that are discarded Are cast uside as junk. They didn’t have the time to get The contents therein stored, Like those who studied fewer books Behind the cabin doors. It takes deep plowing to conserve The moist ure for the crop. It takes time and study to absorb Text books now days taught. This skimming of the surface. And neglecting of the core. Cannot produce such learned men As came from cabin doors. I grant the course is broader, More subjects now are taught. But they skim o’er them so quickly They're very soon forgot. And the graduates are counted, Not by dozens but by scores, But they haven’t had the training Of the men from cabin doors. "A little learning's dangerous,” The poet truly said. While Festus said to 'postle Paul ‘‘Much learning makes thee mad. ’ However much or little Our teachers now may know. They don’t turn out the scholars That came from cabin doors. Yet their salaries quadruple Those of thirty years ago. And the school books of a ten years old Will number half a score. Taxes loo are higher than They ever were before. But does the produce equal that Turned out from cabin doors? Sonic teachers now attempt to teach That God evolved a man. From monkeys he'd created 'Fore the human race began; They may preach their monkev doctrine / From the mountains to the shores But they'll never change the minds of those Who came from cabin doors.

GENERAL # ELECTRIC ALL-STEEL REFRIGERATOR HORD & RANSON PHONE 720 LaEAYETTE ST Copeland’s HEALTH TALK 0 Skin Cleanliness By ROYAL S. COPELAND, M. t>. (United States Senator and former Health Commissioner of New York) (Inquiries may be addresed to Dr. Copeland, care The Star, Shelby, N. C. If you desire a personal reply, enclose a stamped envolepo.e ad dressed back to you.) DR COPELAND—Inside Everybody wants a clear skin and envies one. It is natural to survey the face and hands of a new acquaintance. We learn a lot by the ap pearance of the skin and the care given the finger nails and knuckles. . w. curuAtu x couia numoer several persons 01 iny ac quaintance who seem never to clean the finger nails and yet they would be mortified to death to have a breaking out an the chin. Others have ,;mny knuckles, but would stay home to avoid showing a pimple ofl the nose. It Is a far more common thing to neglect .he hands than the face. This is really too bad because much depends on the care of the hands. Soiled nands, dirty nails, fissured fingers—all these car ry germs of disease. Not long ago we read about a girl who was «id to be the victim of a fatal blood poisoning from the use of a lipstick. I have no inclination to defend too vigorously the use of cosmetics, but I take no stock in the suggestion that the lipstick was to blame. Undoubtedly the infection came Hum tiic 1lingers. Think of all the things you touch with your hands every day. You cannot avoid contact with contaminated objects. Somebody coughs or sneezes into his hand and while it is still wet he turns a door knob, leav mg germ iaaen moisture tor the next visitor to capture. Neglect of the hands and finger nails result in tears of the cuticle, hangnails, raw fissures and other broken surfaces which may be the gateway for the entrance of bad germs. It Is a mistake to neglect the hands. A woman shows her age by her hands long before her face tells the story. For cosmetic reasons then, as well as for health’s sake, the hands should be carefully attended. A common blemish of the hands is the presence of a wart or a clus ter of warts. Boys are lucky if they escape having them. At certain ages particularly between ten or eleven and seventeen, they are frequency observed^ They are not serious in youth, but in advanced life they are liable to break down into malig nancy. It does not pay to neglect !ht hands. They should be kept to per fect condition and can be with little care. Answers To Health Questions. Mrs. P. M.
