High Praise For
Shelby Horse Show
P'eascd With High Type Of Men
M ho Took Part, The Costumes
To Editor of The Star:
All those that enjoy a jolly
crowd, beautiful women, beautiful
horses, good horseback riding and
everything that goes with a good
time certainly got a mouth full at
the Shelby horse show held at tlic
fair grounds recently. The show was
a great success.
Last year Cleveland county had
one of the best fairs, if not the bei*.
iu the state, and the horse show
he 1<^ at Shelby is worthy of state
wide popularity too.
The show was the more interest
ing when such prominent men as
Mr. C. C. Blanton and Mr C. R j
Doggett, who may grow old in age
yet remain young in physic, rode
their handsome mounts like young
sters. Such demonstration is enough j
to inspire any old man to become j
. young again.
1 The ladies rode wdl also. The
costumes well fitted tfc* occasion
Everybody seemed to have a jolly
good time. Here's hopirg Shelby will
have another horse show in the ,

Ramblin’ Bill Is
Hankering For N. C.
W. B. Williamson, former Cleve
land county boy who has rambled
over the west and has written num
erous episodes fer The Star under
the nom de plume of “Ramblin’
Bill."’ apparently is getting ready
to return to his native state. Any
way, the following editorial in a
recent issue of the Charlotte Ob
server indicates such:
“A disabled veteran, W. B. Wil
liamson, writes an entertaining letr
ter to The Observer from his pres
ent home at Douglas, Arizona. He
wants this paper to help him "get
i justice" from the United States
! Veterans' Bureau in his claim for
compensation for wounds received
| overseas in the World war. “I atr.
a native of North Carolina.’’ he
writes, "having been born at Lawn
dale, July 20, 1890, and I would I
rattier dc a sick man in norm Caro
lina. than to be governor of the
state of Arizona.” Veteran William- j
son's complaint covers several pages,
of legal cap and we judge that he t
makes out a good case. As a more j
direct way in which he may get
results, The Observer is turning over
his documents to Capt. F. A. Hutch
inson, In charge of the Veterans’
Bureau, at Charlotte, whose mission
is to look after cases of the kind!
and who has record of generally
securing the relief sought.”

Kraut Juice Is
Now Big Beverage
Bcone.—Fruit of the vine, which
has made famous the sunny h.nds of
Southern France and of Italy, is
destined to have a rival, produced in
the western Carolina mountains,
says H. Neal Blair, superintendent
of the North State Canning com
pany, which hr.- just begun its fall
production of juice from the kraut,
in the Boone factory.
Governor Gardner gets his break
fast juice from Watauga, as does an
increasing number of connoisseurs
outside of the mountains, for kraut
juice is fast becoming the popular
breakfast appetizer of America.
But juice is merely the specialty ,
of this fall's canning season and
kraut remains the main product.
Mr. Blair assures his customers
Five new fermenting vats have been
added with a capacity of fifty tom
each, exactly doubling the capacity
of the Boone plant, and the fall
production minimum of sauer kraut
is set at one thousand tonv
This amount will be the equiva
lent cf fifty carloads, or about 40,
000 cases, besides the large quanri •
ties of juice which will be put vp
here this fall.
