In a certain section of this state there. Is a postmaster or postal clerk
with a sense of humor
Recently The Star mallejl a letter to a bank In his town. At that time
the paper did not know that the bank had closed. Several days later the
letter came back Post offices, as is generally known, use a rubber stamp
to explain why letters are returned to the writer. At the top It is inform
ed that the letter Is returned for reason checked below. Then there are
several reasons listed which may be checked. These Include ■‘Unclaimed,” j
‘ Unknown," “Moved, left no address,” "Deceased,” and "Refused.”
This particular letter came back with the check opposite the word1
"Deceased.” And to clarify It a bit more the postal clerk wrote across the
envelope ‘‘No such thing—bank busted.”

Not. long since the census bureau sent out a story showing the growth^
of North Carolina villages under 500 population. There are 237 such vil
lages in the state and the census statistics explained that the net growth
from 1920 to 1930 of all of the 237 did not equal the 'growth of Shelbyj
alone. Mr Lathan wrote an editorial about It. Perhaps he doesn't know
there is a city by the name of Shelby, or perchance he couldn't Imagine
uny town adding more population than the total of 237 other villages. Any
way, he wrote "The net growth of the 237 villages was less than that of
Shelby county, or of several of the larger municipalities.”
