Find Body Of !
Body Of Paul Hover Found Beneath
| Sandy Hun Trestle On South
ern Near Mooresboro
The body of a negro man. Paul
Boyce, 19 years of age, was found
late yesterday afternoon at the bot
tom of the Southern railway trestle
over Sandy Run creek Just on tins
side of Mooresboro. One leg was
broken, his head was smashed, and
he had apparently been dead for
several days before being found.
I The discovery of the body was
made by Archie Wyatt who was
walking along the track and hap
pened to glance down to the foot of
the trestle. The body was not in the J
waters of the creek but was some
distance away from the bed, al
though Just under the trestle.
Fell From Trestle?
A coroner's Jury was assembled by
County Coroner T. C. Eskridge and
an inquest was held. The finding of
| the Jury was that Boyce met his
death in a fall from the trestle, it
not being thought that he was
struck by a train or another person
Whether he fell while walking
across or perhaps Jumped to avoid
being hit was not said.
The negro's parents live at Besse
mer City, but he has a brother at
Mooresboro who identified him.
The brother stated that Paul work
ed in that section last summer but
left and had not been back. For
that reason no one in the section
missed him and the finding of his
body was only a chance occurrence.
Citizens who served cn the coro
ner's Jury were M. A. Jolley, P. Y
Jones, J. L. Walker, Louis McSwaln,

Mother, On Crutches For 35 Years,
Needs Aid For Family Of Five
On the edge of Shelby, w here the suburban residences trickle to an end
And the big cotton fields begin, there is a mother who hasn't walked
without her crutches for 35 years, yet It is her lot in life to be the chief
support of herself and five children, the oldest being only 14 years of age.
This is one of the deservin'*
cases which will be helped by The
Star's Christmas Charity fund—that
is, if Shelby loosens up a bit mere
and gives enough to help those in
the direst straits.
Tough Life Struggle.
The destitute condition oi the
family came to light recently vhen
the probate officer investigated to
see why the 14-year-old boy was
not attending school.
•'He Just can't'’ the mother told
him from the crutches upon which
she rested. "We've Just got to five
atid he’g the only one big enoutn
to help me. And both of us have
our hands full and more. Then he
hasn't got the clothes to wear it I
didn't need him, Howt can he have
clothes and books on the money we
have—and me on crutches for 36
In still another family the moth
er is sick, and has been sick for
weeks, and the father, a day labor
er, is unable to make enough to keep
up the big family and provide med
icine and medical care for his sick
wife. The doctors have said that
the mother needs to go away for
treatment. But how is she to go
when the father working from early
morn until late at night cannot
make enough to buy clothes and
food and what medicine she now
These are just' a couple more
instances of actual need about
Shelby—unfortunate homes into
which The Star hopes, through the
generosity of Shelby and Cleveland
county people, to take i little
Christmas cheer in the form of the
many necessities of life.
There'll be no toys or .plaything:
In these homes. They're not asking
—and some will not even ask—for
such as that. All they wan- is a
chance to keep existing and light
ing back until the breaks go with
them and they are well and get on
their feet again.
Can the remainder of us, who arc
at least healthy and have enough to
live upon, pass up such appeal.*?
Have you made your contribu
tion? If not, do so at once. The
small gifts help along, too. Do not
hold back because you are unab'e to
give a big sum. In such homes as
these every little bit helps.
The friends of Mr. and Mrs. Oli
ver Anthony will regret to hear the,
their infant daughter, born f-‘day,
lived for only a few hours. Mi An
thony is at the Shelby hospital.

Judge Webb Misunderstood About
Remaining On Job, Thought Here
Veteran Jurist, Some Think, Meant j
That He Would Hold On Un
til Term Ends.
The statement from Winston
Salem last week, which- tossed a
monkey wrench Into political tie- j
velopments In this district, that'
Judge Janies L. Webb might not re
tire at the end of ills term next
year, as previously stated, is be
lieved by many in Shelby to have
resulted from a misunderstanding
as to what the Shelby jurist meant.
An opinion heard here is that
fudge Webb said, and mayhaps \v,v !
nisundcrstcod- that due tr> hi i
.icalth he. had once believed |u j
would not be able to serve out his
term, which ends a year from now,
but that general improvement of his
health in raagnt weeks has caused
him to believe he will feel strong
enough to complete the term. Tht<
statement, the opinion expressed
here is, was taken by Winston
newspapermen to imply that he
might return to the bench lor an
Of course the local opinion may
be erroneous, and it was impossible
to definitely check tip on the state
ment over the week-end as J :dge
Webb went to Raleigh from .Vi:i

with Governor and Mrs. Gardner.
Test Plots Of
A Good Yield
Count; Agent* Say* Test* Will
Show That Land Can be Sated
For Other Crops
Forty-one of the Cleveland coun
ty farmers who entered five-acre
test plots in the county agricul
tural board's contest, to see whas
farmers could produce the nost
cotton on five acres, are still in the
contest, It was said today by Coun
ty Agent Shoffncr, but the cotton
on all the plots Is late.
It was originally planned to ac
semble the reports on all ol the
plots on December 15, but due tc
the lateness of the crop generally
It Is not likely that the reports will
be in for a decision before late In
December or early in January.
Agent Shoffner's conservative
opinion is that the 41 five-acie plots
will have a general average batter
than a bale and one-half to the
acre. At one and one-half bales to
the acre it would mean 307 1-2 jales
on the 205 acres.
"The most valuable lesson ;t> the
contest, as I see it," said the ‘.arm
agent, "will be that it will demon
state that a big cotton crop can be
made without using all of our land
for cotton, thus leaving other acrc.
for other crops which are needed
to balance our farm program.”
Installs A Bulletin.
A new feature of the county
agent's office Is a bulletin board ou
one side of which the agent lists
what farmers of the county ere of
fering for sale, while on the uh*r
side he lists certain things farmers
desire to purchase. This bulletin
is proving a convenience to farm
ers who visit the office each week,
The county ugent last week visit
ed the Tom Webb mountain peac.j
orchard in1 upper Cleveland and
praised the orchard enterprise, de
claring that the 2400 peach trees
in Uie orchard offer ample proo:
that orchards would be profitable in
that section of the county.
Eleven poultry demonstrations
throughout the county were also
started last week, through the office
of the farm agent. Five to six thou
sand birds aye included In the dem
onstrations* ercr which a monthly
record will be kept, a copy of which
goes to Raleigh to the agriculture;
board each month to be checked,
thereby showing Cleveland poultry
