HALF MILLION WILD HORSES
STILL AT LARGE IN ARIZONA
Phoenix, Ariz.—Although more
than 8,000 wild horses were slaugh
tered within the year, the Arizona
Industrial congress estimates there
are nearly a half million still at
large in the state.
The feed the animals consume Is
needed for cattle and sheep. It is
claimed that two horses eat as much
as three cows and their calves.
The wild horses are used prima
rily in the manufacture of poultry
scrap, canned dog food, fish food
and recent inquiries have been re
ceived for horse meat for export to
Holland. A demand for young hides
has developed from Los Angeles
where they are made into ladles’

Around Our TOWN
By RENN DRUM
“WONDER WHAT SHE’LL LOOK LIKE?” Is the popular query be
ing heard about Shelby this week-end. “She" is the new teacher, and the
question is being dangled about by the school tots, always interested in
their new teacher—and by the collegiate young fellows about town, who
are always on edge ior new dates.
* * »
Of course, that Is just one of the
many questions In the air about
Shelby with the school bells all set
for Monday’s tolling.
"Gee! I’m all fidgety wondering
how I’ll .get along with Mr. Smith
and Mr. Abernethy. Wonder if their
system will be much like that of
Mr. Griffin and Mr. Andrews?” one
teacher asks another.
“I wonder, too,” muses the other
teacher. “Hope to goodness they
don’t give me classes with 35 or 40
students to the class. When there
is so many to a class, the students
cannot learn—and a teacher gets

—‘‘Mr. Ebeltoft, I want a his
tory,” asks a timid little girl as she
walked into the book store.
“Well," what kind of history,”
comes the voice out of the semi
gloom of the reading couch to the
rear. “Modern, ancient, medieval,
United States, European, North
Carolina, or what?”
"I don't know. I just want a
history,” comes back the timid
• • *
And there are many other school
“Wonder if I'll get a chance to
make the football team?”
“I got my old teacher back. I
hope she’ll be good as she was fore
she got married?”
It’s a great season of the year.
SHELBY SHORTS: One young
fellow Informs that he is having a
pair of pajamas remodelled for
public wearing purposes so as to
save Shelby's rep as a modishly
dressed town .... The billboards
around Shelby indicate just how
much of the weekly payroll goes for
"the necessities of life.” In a row of
seven billboards two advertise ciga
rettes, one a smoking tobacco, two
automobiles, and one make of gaso
line . Shelby’s Webb boys
shouldn't take their one or two golf
defeats so much to heart. Look *,t
the flop of Bobby Jones himself . ...
Squire Sylvanus Gardner, whose
memory goes back farther than
some of us have lived, recalls that
the first cotton planter he ever saw
in action was being used by Jule
B. Fortune, the Shelby postmaster
of the long ago, who is now in town
for his first visit In a quarter of a
century. Mr. Fortune was using it
on his farm four miles north of
Shelby and the planter was consid
ered ‘‘a quare contraption” in those
days ..... The Shelby high school
band, some ol the parents are say
ing, is, from every appearance, all
dressed up and nowhere to go:' a
collection of costly horns on their
and no one to teach them to toot.
A HEADLINE IN WEDNES
day’s Star, telling of a motor trip
by a county citizen, reads “Passes
3,000 Cars in Two Hours Time.” Be
lieve us, the auto dealers here
abouts are sure asleep at the gas
feed unless they fall all over each
other finding out what make of car
that fellow was driving.
HERE’S A LITTLE DITTY WE
borrow from F. P. A’s “Conning
Tower” for the amusement (?) of
the fellows who climb the stair
ways to the Shelby stock broker
Ay diddle diddle,
I thought I would fiddle
With stocks that started to sputt;
A little Bull laughted to see such
And a Bear ran away with my shirt.
THE A. V. WRAY STORE WE
read in the news columns has a new
advertising manager, and then we
notice the new slogan in the Wray
advertisement—“Where Your Dol
lar Has More Cents.” The new ad
vertising manager should have
well-earned his first week’s check
for slinging out such a slogan for
the customers to roll over their
3,000 HINDU WORKERS GO
TO FUNERAL OF MONKEY
Hubli, Bombay Presidency. — One
of the strangest funeral processions
in India was held here when 3,000
workers in the local railway work
shop carried the body of an electro
cuted monkey to the burning place.
The monkey was electrocuted by
touching a live wire in the work
shop, and the workers felt that it
was due to their own carelessness
that the monkey died.
They decicred therefore to give
him a proper funeral, and his body
was carried with all the ritual and
ceremonies accorded to the body of
a Hindu,, with all the workers fol
lowing the cortege.
