could not stand to taka
strong medicine, so I de
cided I would tike Black
Draught, and I found it to
ba all right.
*1 would have such dinry
spells, and each bursting
headaches, until I could1
hardly go. But after tak-1
ing a few doses of Black
Draught, 1 would feel just
fine. It is a good medi
cine, and I recommend it
to all who suffer as I did.
It is very easy to recom

Black-Draught has done.*

Ramblin' Bill Recalls Early I
Days Of The Star And Wishes
The Paper The Best Of Luck
He Ha* Been Writing To li For
Near 30 Years. Started
For Iloey.
To The Editor of The Star:
Tn your January 2 Issue I note
that Mr Lee B. Weathers, has been
with the Cleveland Star for twen
ty years and has helped It grow
from a small rural semi-weekly to a
modern and up-to-date newspaper
of this day. This also reminds me
that I have been writing for The
Star for almost thirty years. My
first article or 'piece' ns it was *u'- 1
ed then was accepted by the Hon
Clyde JR. Hoey, when he was editor
and general manager arid preddeiit
sometime about 1903 or 1904. I wrote
up a wedding that happened in No.
s township, and later I wrote up a
few deaths.
1 remember the hours that I
watched and waited for the paper
to arrive at Lawndale in order that
I could read my 'plFce’ arid the de
light I felt when some neighbor
mentioned same in my presence. I
don't think however, that anybody
prophesied that I would ever make
a great newspaperman, although I
entertained early ambitions in that
direction myself for years. Finally I
got my chance. Not with The Star
but. with a metropolitan daily and
ufter a day or two without seeing
many of my articles in print. I ap
proached the editor and inquired
how be expected to keep the cir
culation up on ids paper by neglect
ing to print my write-ups. That was
the first time, I believe, that he
knew just, who I was and he fired
me without any ado whatever and
no comment. I later held a minor
reporter’s Job on another daily, for
just a few days and something I
wrote about a prominent man about
town caused the editor to find out T
was on that paper and I got anoth
er little blue slip attached to my
pay cheek. This almost caused me
to lose ray ambition to become a
great newspaper man. and there Is
one other thing too that I learn
ed about the newspaper business.
This knowledge was gained from a
habit I formed quite early in life
ana that was eating. To be a news
paper man and to eat, you must be
a good new: paper man or you don’t
eat- very regularly, and being fond
of eating I soon gave up my am
bitions to be a gatherer and purvey
or of the news.
However. Mr. Weathers, and hts
predecessors, and his present staff
of able assistants deserve much
credit for the Job that they have
put over with the Cleveland Star.
It has done more good for Cleveland
county, for Shelby and for the state
of North Carolina than anything
that L can think of just now. It has
been ft great solace and inspiration
to me through many years of trav
els and wanderings over the globe
It has been a link in that chain of
memories that connects me with my
boyhood days in the state I shah
always love- North Carolina. It has
ibeen an inspiration to me through j
many hardships and has helped me
over many obstacles of life. It has
| staved off despair many times when

Like A New Man
Says Merchant
•'This Sargoai is the best medi
cine that ever came to Durham
and I tell everybody that comes in
my store about it. A bad case of
flu five years ago left me weak and I
badly rundown I couldn't eat a !
meal without suffering with indS> j
gestion. I was troubled with con- j
stlpatlon and had headaches most ;
all the time Nothing helped me un- !
til I took Sargon and Sargon Plus. I
"All my troubles are gone ow j
and 1 feel like a man ‘made over .
again ’ It’s great to sleep good all
night, get up in the morning wtth I
a clear head, cat a hearty brenkfcrt, |
and have the energy to put tn a (
big day’s work. That’s what Sargon
did for met Since taking Sargon ■
Pills my bowels are as regular as
clockwork. Now my wife Is fakin';
Sargon and getting the same won
derful benefits that I did.” J E.

I was almost ready to give up the
fight for life with the monster tub
erculosis, which I hove conquered
nut here in the desert, at last. It al
ways brought a ray of sunshine and
a fragrance of the sunny south to
rue In many climes and it has fol
lowed me almost everywhere I have
been even to the battle
fields of France and through the
desert and mountains of old Me*- 1
ico. My children have liwrned to;
love It and now that they are old
enough to read and to understand
they even fight for possession of it
when It arrives. Deny me The Star
and you have taken a ray of sun
bine out of my life that could
never be replaced with anything
When we are young, we usually
entertain thoughts that some day
we will go off somewhere and ac
complish something big. Mr. Weath
ers, jcame back home and accom
plished something big. He has chis
!ed iv niche in the very hall of fame
itself with his wonderful paper. The
paper with a heart, and soul—the
very pulse of the best community on
the earDi, Shelby, and Cleveland
county, and the state.
The Star has been and is a bal
ance wheel in the affairs of the
county and state and the very main
spring of society. Its policy has
been one of righteousness itself, of
fairness and justice, and no man
could crave any greater honor In
this world than to be mentione.d In
this worthy journal when he passes
on to that great beyond from which
no mortal has ever returned.
Mr, Weathers, and your worthy
staff of workers, we salute you for
the unexcelled service that you have
rendered with your noble paper and
may you grow and grow in power
and fame until your noble service
will be recognized around the
Wishing you one and all and the
many readers of The Star a most
Happy and Prosperous New Year, I
will bid you a cheerful "Adios” and
so long.

For A Registered
It’s Rising Time
For Aggressive Business Men
THIS is one of the times when it seems expedient to
call attention to the obvious. Good business is now
fifteen months nearer revival than it was in October,
1929. There are more people in this land of ours
now than then, more people in the Shelby trading
area, more money piling up in savings accounts and
insurance, and more shelves yawning for new stocks
of merchandise.
And, in the meantime, commodity consumption has
been going on at a rapid pace.
It is the combination of these obvious facts that
spells opportunity for the Aggressive Business Man
of 1931. A year from now, some men will look
backward and wonder why they missed out: others
will make progress, usmg opportunity for their in
centive. In times like these, the seeds of prosperity
and growth are most enduringly sown. And now,
in almost every line, the businesses that a^e heeding
opportunity by WORKING instead of WISHING
are becoming depression-proof and flourishing.
