Besides his wife and three chil

Hamrick also survives, together with
a host of other relatives A great
quantity of beautiful flowers were
sent by friends and loved ones, al
though it was his expressed desire
to have a. simple funeral with no
pretense at show. Dr. Zeno Wall, the
pastor, who knew hint intimately
and always found him a friend and
comforter, conducted the funeral
service, assisted by Rev. M. L. Kes
ter, superintendent of the Mills or
phanage at Thomasvllle with whom
Mr. Hamrick’s eldest, son. Fuller, was
associated as bursar of the institu
tion for 20 years. Favorite hymns
such as ’ How Firm a Foundation," i
"Beautiful Land," and "Face to
Face” were rendered by a double
quartet of mixed voices.
Tribute To Hi* Life.
Dr. Wall gave a true estimate of
Mr. Hamrick when he citied seven
points which characterised him.
First he was a good man-good in
every sense of the broad meaning
of the word. Then Dr. Wall pointed
out that lie was an industrious man,
a progressive man as was evidenced
by the condition of his farm, the
fart that he gave his children a
college education by stint and ,self
denial, that he loved to see his
church go forward and contributed
to Its growth. In th* fourth place,
Dr. Wall pointed out that he wes
an honored man -honored because
he had served for years as it dea
con and on the building committee
of the church—honored bv being a
director of the Union Trust Co.
since its organization, honored by a
long and useful life. Then he was a
cheerful man who radiated cheer
and comfort to outers. In the sixth
place be was a faithful man and his
faith was never shaken. Then in the
seventh and last place. Dr. Wall
pointed out that he v.as a prepared
man—prepared for the trumpet
call at any hour of the day or night
and unafraid to face Ills Master.
A. brief tribute was paid by Mr.
Kister to Mr. Hamrick as a hard
worker and as a slrioere man.
Two score of men who were
neighbor* and friends in business or
church life served as honorary pall
bearers, while J. L. Buttle. Algrn

Cleveland Farmers Show Interest
In Lespedeza At Meeting Here; To
Sow Big Crop Here This Spring
fcofrnmjED from paoe :one(
| Those present expres-cd much in
1 tercst in the lespedeza movement in
the county and asked for informa
tion about the soil-building crop
from other farmers who had les ■
lxdeza last year. Talks were made
by Ray Williams, of Kings Moun
tain; R. W. Wilson, of Falishm:
Prof. E. L. Dillingham, of the halt;
more school; by Dr R M. Gidney,
of Shelby and other . All boosted
lespedeza as a crop and as a soil
builder, expressing the opinion that
it would do much to advance agri-*
culture generally in the county.
As a result of the meeting the
farmers presented sent in an ord-.
for 1,200 pounds of seed. As en
thusiasm spreads it is expected that
many other farmers will order seed.
Although the meeting centered
r.bout lespedeza there was general
approval of the live-at-home ides,
and r hearty endorsement w;i3
given The Star's ‘grow-your-own
As many tanners desire further
information about lespedeza and
its value, Agent Shotftier, at the re
qtiest ot The Star, has prepared the
following article on the crop:
The question of lespedeza has be -
come one of the major questions
among the farmers of Cleveland

called Japan clover, and was intro
duced to this country before the
Civil war from Japan. Lespede&i. is
adapted to most any kind of soil,
and especially any we have in Clev
eland county. We p'oiably have
lespedeza on our farms and do not
know it. of the common variety..
Lespedeza can be grown on the
poorest kind of soil and make a
profitable growth. It will make' a
growth of one ton of vegetation on
most any soil in the county.
As a soil builder, there is noth'nj
betteh In counties not far from us
lespedeza has increased corn yield
20 to 25 bushels per acre during
one crop, wheat ten to 18 bushels
per acre, and cotton 500 to 1200
pounds, of seed cotton per acre. A
proven test in Stanley county shows
Lespedeza for hay is In the class
with alfalfa. It makes a high qual
ity of hay and yield. from one ,o
iour tons per acre. With a gout
stand it will make or.e ton of hay
per acre fo reach four inches; above

It makes a real pasture and can

per acre with other grasses. It can
not be pastured too closely but what
it wit! reseed the next year It fur
nishes pasture from June to frest
and stands the drought fine.
At present there ax four varie
ties that are popular through tnic

are improved varietlec. The com
mon variety Is mostly recommend
ed for pastures and soil improve
ment, However on fairly good soil St
will yield one to four tons of nay
per acre. Tlie other three varieties
grow taller and more adapted to hay.
There is not very much difference
in the growth of these three varie
ties. From my observations of these
three varieties f would recommend
the Tennessee 76 It grows from t®n
to eighteen inches high with fine
stems. It will average four to twelve
bushels of pan caught seed per ac e,
but more if they are threshed.
Lespedeza should bo seeded twen
ty-five bushels to the acre whoa
sown alone. Lespedeza seed weighs
25 pounds to the bushel. They can
be sown on grain crops or other
lend. It is mostly sown on the small
grain crops and suits very fine for
this place. No preparation of soil is
necessary. If the soil has a hard
crust it might be best to break that
crust lightly with a harrow and fol
low with the seed, not before the1
harrow. The seed may be sown with
a grain drill by keeping the disc out j
of the soil, this will spread the seed
more evenly. AH you have to do is
sow the seed and forget about it and
the lespedeza will come. The serd
should be sown in the spring from
late January to mid-March. If sown
after the freezes, cover lightly with

Lespedeza needs no inoculation
and makes profitable growth with
out fertilization, but responds well
with an application of lime.
We should make special efforts 10

Be very careful to secure clean see.l

\ Shelby Case.
I u his iratid charges Congressman
i Jonas has cited one Shelby case,
I alleging illegal registration and use
i ui an absentee vote.
In showing how election machin
ery swings an election in North
Carolina a speech of Senator Josiali !
!w. Bailey, made in 1926, was given
the Nye committee. The Greensboro
News’ Washington correspondent
tells as follows of the Jonas confer
ence with the Nye committee:
“There lias been placed before the
committee copies of a speech attrib
uted to SAiator-elect Bailey. In
this address, delivered In Winston
Salem in 1926, Mr. Bailey is alleged
to have declared, in effect, that
election officers in Pennsylvania had
no advantages over those in North
Carolina, that, given the election
machinery, he could make his ma
jority'"whatever he pleased, and that!
at Apex the election officers had)
voted a bird dog. Mr. Jonas contend- j
ed Mr. Bailey had been right in 1926. |
and that election methods in the!
state had undergone no improve-!
Control of Machinery,
"The idea of Mr. Jonas seemed to
be that Mr. Bailey did. in point of
fact, get control of the election ma
chinery. that this machinery turned
out a great majority for him. Just as
he charged had been done by the
| Simmons lieutenants in 1926, when
[he was the victim.
"The discussion turned upon the
absentee voters law, and Chairman
Nye asked if the North Carolina leg
islature was now in session, and if
there had been any serious demand i
for the repeal of this law. which has
led to so much complaint. The re
ply was that in one of the largest
counties 'of the state, Buncombe, the
members 6f the legislature had been
ipermitted to secure a repeal of the
law. a step which had come rather
late, since in that county, as a re
sult of u coalition between corrupt
politics and high finance, govern-1
ment had all but broken down.
"Senator Nye thought such con
ditions altogether reprehensible, and j
said if the states failed to provide
a remedy, it looked as if the remedy
1 would have to be found in a na
tional law. insuring some degree cf
I federal supervision over the elec
[tlon of presidential electors and
! members of congress.
Effective Action Possible.
i "To this Mr. Jonas replied if this
: course were pursued the federal
prosecuting officers would find it
possible to take effective action,
when election frauds were commit
"Mr. Jonas said that if he became
district attorney, he would be able
to do something about it. when the
election laws were violated, but that,
in the absence of a federal law, he
would be helpless, as other federal
prosecuting officers now were. He
said that tiu ie was no present me
thod of going behind the returns,
that the state courts had so hel^.
and that the election machinery
was run by whatever faction of the
dominant party that happened to be
in control at a given time, and the
ballots were counted and announced
by the machine agents, as the votes
might be needed.
