Around Our TOWN
Tokay the coivum 1, again crusading in the movement to lei the
world know shout Shelby.
The topic In that picture postcards, and the suggestions may tie n
interest, or may not be, to photographers and merchants who deal t;
souvenirs. It Shelby's chamber of commerce were not In calm repose

its this way; Just the other day Shelby had a number Of visitors.
Many of them, a.i they should have been (ootvaitli, were favorably im
pressed with the city’s beauty and the systematic manner iii which tin
streets were surveyed and bi!iit up. Two or three of the visitors strolled
into a store and asked for picture postcards to send their friends. They
desired to show that Shelby Is one of those places not to be overlooked.
The clerk in the store was baffled; he was a young fellow and picture
postcards had then heyday before he quit playing marbles and startin'?
greasing hi* hair for rumole-seit excursions. At another store pwstcard
scenes of Shelby were unearthed from a dusty corner of u display count
er And what scenes they were! One view was that of a semi-deserted
street comer in the business district back In the days when there wer;
never more than 40 visitors In town unless the circus was litre. In the
scene was shown: an automobile of a vintage around 1012 or 1914. The
visitor turned up her hose apd marched from the store. Apparently she
hardly believed It was a view of Shelby. Fact is, the view she looked at
must have been made in the days when Shelby believed that a building
as high us the Masonic temple would never be erected anywhere except
lh New York.
Why doesn't come modern photographer make u series of views of
preent-day Shelby for use upon picture postcards? Say they’ve had
their day if you will Maybe they have, but if they have, the old views
should be destroyed or placed in the family album as relics of the past
to be shown to the grandchildren so that they might know how Shelby
looked when great gram per shucked his flour-sack underwear and vent
swimming in his birthday clothes at Chapels bend in Broad river just
west of town
hi lumps this note "Put. Kathleen Ilot'd m that Mu Shelby eon
test and you'll not tit eel any judges; the contest will be over.”
AncJ Hhe manner in which that bay wrote it indicates that he meant'
every word of it; but we'd bet that he has stuttered every tune he lytsi
tried tp tell her hi person- that is, if lie has ever had enough courage to
try it. J
Principal Walter A brine toy's sense of humor lmd all the teachers
mid ii number of students all upset over at• the Shelby high school one
day Uhi week.
All of von know that old wheeze about the Office buy always want
ing to go to his grandmother's ftmcrjil on the day the baseball season
- At the high school here it is the custom for . ome of the officials or
teachers to remain in tty- office for cn hour or so after school close.j in
the afternoon One afternoon this week Shelby had an important base
ball gain- booked. Principal AbernCthy desired to sob it. Just about the
time school closed, around S.HO in the afternoon. lie ca'led one of the
high school teacher... and said, "Will you please remain ui toe office for
me the remainder of the afternoon. I liave to go out of town; my grand
mother's dead.”
The teacher expressed her sympathy and agreed to take charge of
the office. The principal busied hlmsJM preparing to depart. The teacher
he had spoken to tool^ occasion to inform oilier teachers of the prin
cipal bereayemeut. Simu oi the student: who were also around the
building heard of the death. WihUn a short period of time, before Mr.
Abernethy could get away donation; were being taken up, it is reported,
to purchase a wreath. for the deceased grandmother. Finally, just as he
'started to leave, one of the teachers asked. "When will you be back. Mr.
‘ When we get the old lady put away, the principal replied.

Such disrespectful reference to one’s dead grandmother almost Hoof
ed the teacher. Those remaining about the high school building were
very much excited over the sudden demise and the nonchalent manner
in which Prof. Abcrnethy was Bearing up under his bereavement.
It finally reached the point where he had to tell them that he wa;
going to a baseball game—just like other oifice boys whose grandmothers
check out at convenient intervals. : i
Now let's take up today's history lesson.
Mona. BUI Hogue, one of the coiyum’s esteemed consultants and ad
visors.’ informs that one'of Shelby’s fiercest fist fights todk place 30 years
or so ugo on the First National bank corner. It was on election day and
the participants were Matt Allison, of the No. i township section, and
Pete Mayberry mid Joe Lackey, of the Kings Mountain community. With
the entire election crowd looking on the battle raged furiously for some
tunc. Finally. Allison, who had only one hand, licked them both by
knocking them out with his lead-padded nub arm. '
Mons. JEHU • also' recalls that Jimmy Love, the man wim gave the
land on Which Shelby is built, was a husky, hard-working man in addi
tion to being a big farmer and landowner. One of the Jimmy Love feats,
a superman teat m those days, was the splitting of 1,000 fhestiftit rails
between sun

of an issue in 1874, It was an ad Of the town's first bank, J. Jenkim
and Go. The ad reads. “If you want to buy or sell GOLD, or if you
want to buy, sell, or exchange checks, call on us .
Mr. Babington also recalls that when he came to Shelby with his
father CO years ago a tobacco factory was being operated on the lot be
hind the present C. C. Blanton residence on North LaFayette street. The
operators, as he remembers, were John Stephens. Dr. .1 C. Gidney and
Jesse Jenkins, the .'latter erected the present Blanton rsidence there
about 1878 and today the handsome home shows not a crack or trace .of
the 1883 earthquake wliich did considerable damage to tills section.
Another recollection is that the Tom Dixon residence, which stood’
an Fast Marion street just across from the present Chevrolet garage, wa,
not erected by the elder Tom Dixon. It was moved from fTTe post office
corner and for years was occupied by the Roark family before the Dixon;
secured it.
Mr. Babington also makes a slight correction in another historical
fact recently related iii this comer. The first jail Itood where the Ward
Arey residence is now, corner of; East Marion and DeKalb streets, and
the old whipping post was just behind it.
