ADVERTISED FOR RAIN IN
IIOMi; PAPER. HE GETS IT!
Last work when things were
hot and dry and it looked bad
for crops, Sam Jones, Weige
laiul township farmer, stopped
(he editor and said. "The old
Canby News has always brought
me results on anything I ad
vertised for heretofore, and I
wonder if it would help if I ad
vertised for rain now?” "Sure
thing,” said the editor, "it
never fails." “All right," said
Sam. “put in a good strong ad
for rain and if it comes this
week I’ll pay for It.”
The ad for rain appeared all
right and—so did the rain Sat
urday. Sam. like the good sport
hr is, walked into the News of
fice Saturday afternoon and
planked down the price of the
ad and said, “Well, it sure pays
to advertise in the News—that
old paper always did get re
sults, no matter what I adver
tised for.”—Canby (Min.) News,

Around Our TOWN
By RENN DRUM
WHICH SIDE OF THE CLEVELAND COUNTY COURT HOUSE IS
flip Iron! side?
Don’t giggle and think it a silly ciuestion, Just ponder on it a min
ute and you'll not crack a smile. ___
A big part of uptown Shelby has
been debating. that question for a
day or so and a majority of them
are no closer together on the an
swer than are Bishop Cannon and
Johnny Raskob. Fact is, there ate
very few subjects, from the proper
time to split cord-wood to interna
tional problems, that some of the
wise boys about the court house can
not answer, but this one, if you
take it from us, has 'em stumped.
Try to answer it yourself, then
advance the proof for your answer.
One day last week a visiting
photographer was in town. Ha want
ed a photo of the state's most
beautiful court square, or rather of
the court house. He met J. B. Smith,
welfare officer, in the corridor.
“Mr. Smith.” he said. “I want to
make a photo of the court house,
which is the front side?”
"Why, it's the uh, alj-uhh-h—,''
and there Mr. Smith stopped, al
though he started his answer as if
you knew what he was goihg to say.
‘ Now, isn't that funny? Me here
working in if and can't tell which
is the front?”
Then Mr. Smith noticed another
one of the county officers and hail
ed him; "Say, tell us which side of
the court house is the front side? ’
••That’s easy,” the other official
answered. “Its the uh—but ii.'
wasn’t so easy, and another man
Mr Smith then moved over to
The Star office.
“You fellows are erroneously!
considered to know everything.
Which side of the court house is
the front side?"
There happened to be four news
hounds present, and they gave four
different answers. There are four
sides to the court house, and insofar
as The Star is concerned everv
side must be the front side.
Some argue that the east side is
the front side because all big public
buildings, like Solomon s tempi”
face the east. Others say it is the
west side because the Confederate
monument was placed on that side
—and it is a good argument. Still
others contend that the north side
is the front side, because the court
auditorium is so arranged that the
Judge faces the north entrance, and
judges usually face the main en
trance. Those upholding the north
side also point out that the cupola
which holds the big town clock is
erected more on the north wing,
yet the clock has four faces.
No one. so far* as the colyum has
heard, has upheld the south side
From the architectural standpoint
the cast and west sides are identi
cal, while the north and smith sides
are of the same pattern. The por
tals over the porticos on the east
and west sides have in upraised let
ters the name of the county, “Cleve
land County," and that fact indi
cates that either of the two sides
might be the front side, as the por
ticos on both the east and west are
larger than those on the north and
south. The hallw'ay. or corridor en
trances from all four sides are ex
actly alike. Somehow, though, U
seems as if the w'est side has th'1
better of the argument, because it
is said that the front of the old
court house faced the west, and
the monument is also there.
This department can t keep from
thinking the north side is the fron*
side, holding the west side as second
choice. The fellow who can settle
the argument and prove his theorj
will be doing a favor.
