Around Our TOWN
By RENN DRUM.
A LITTLE OF THIS N'
THAT; MOSTLY NOTHING
In Shelby there lives an aged negro woman, a native of Georgia, who
shaves likes a man and la known as "Nappy Chin."
The names of colored residential sections in Shelby are somewhat
unusual. Trip over these: Black Bottom, The Knot, Flat Rock, China
town, Old Freedom, and New Freedom.
The only old-tashioned picket fence this colyum knows to exist in
Shelby Is around the yard ol Mrs. C. B. Suttle, where Mayor McMurry
lives, on West Marlon street. A new front gate la being erected to help
preserve the fence. ,
The story 1* told about town that some days ago a wanderer, with an
accent filled with burrs, stopped at a Shelby garage and asked for a Job.
"Are you a mechanic?” he was asked.
"No, sorr,” came the reply, “Ol'm a McCarthy."
SNAKE PROVIDES BAIT
FOR FISHERMAN—AND HOW!
It’s getting to be about the time of year that new and enlarged fish
and snake stories are scattered about.
This one—a combination fish-and-snake story, and the beet one we’ve
heard In a coon's age—Is borrowed from Tom Pridgen’s ’‘Lookout" In The
A fisherman was fishing In one of the fresh water creeks up In Samp
son county~the Little Coharle, maybe. He was about to put his last frog
on the hook for bait when the frog Jumped Into the water and a snake
swam by and gobbled up the frog.
The fisherman merely reached Into the water, grabbed the snake be
hind the ears and proceeded to squeeze out his frog. He was not going to
be robbed of his bait that way. Then, to even up matters, he took out his
flask of corn .liquor and poured a long drink into the snake, anff~threw
him back Into the water.
It was about ten minutes before anything happened. The fisherman
felt something nudging him in the side, He looked around and there was
the snake with another frog In Its mouth. •
Out at the Cleveland Springs golf club one day this week Federal
Judge E. Y. Webb and a group of the caddies were tossing mathematical
problems and riddles at each other. Finally, one youth asked the Judge
this one: "If a cat fell into a well nine feet deep, and crawled back out
three feet each day only to slip back two feet each night, how long would
It take for the cat to get out?”
Go ahead and figure it out for yourself. We have our hands full try
ing to figure out some method of having our monthly bank statement to

•’Wonder If you’ve ever noticed,” wonders K. M., "that the fruit Jar
manufacturers seem pretty well satisfied with the prohibition law and Its
enforcement? The generation coming on now may wonder, when It grows
up, why In the heck they called them ’fruit' Jars—one never sees fruit In
them any more.” «
Of course, somebody would bring that up. Try writing Mr. Wicker
sham about It; and while you’re about it ask him if the sale of ginger ale
has Increased or decreased since the Volstead Act was passed.
WHY THE HILLS AND
GROVES IN CLEVELAND?
Ever notice how many communities In Cleveland county arc named
for hills and groves?
Offhand we recall these: Pleasant Hill, Zion Hill, Laurel Hill, Flint
Hill—Oak Grove, Pleasant Orove, and Carpenters Grove.
Then there are the two doubles—Double Springs and Double Shoals
Shelby Shorts: Lt. Col. Chas. E. McBrayer, of Portland, Oregon, a
Shelby boy who Joined up with Uncle Sam’s army and made good, believes
that Corn Cracker, the Polkvllle sage, has few equals In serio-comic phil

Buck Hardin hoof lt to Cleveland Springs and back each morning at six
o’clock ... It has been several years since Vic Wray, of the A. V. and
Six firm, quit cowpunchtng in Arizona but he still rolls his cigarettes cow
boy style .... At a football game In Georgia a year or two ago a Shelby
fan started out In a crap game with a bag of grapes and made expenses
for the day off one of the newly elected city officials of one of Tarheella’s
largest cities .... In one of his first rounds of golf a Shelby attorney
recently made a costly hole In one. The hole was through the wind
shield of an auto In the road along the No. One fairway . . . Three
of the 10 best golfers at Cleveland Springs are left-handed swingers, and
the experts say portsiders can’t play golf.At least four members
of the Shelby bar have been newspaper employes. Have they gone up
or down? .... Less big news has happened In Shelby for the first four
months of 1931 than during the first quarter of any year in seven years.
SAY HARD TffMES, IF
YOU WILL? BUT LISTEN
Money may be scarce In Shelby, but. according to the city directory,
there an in the city 23 people by the name of Kale, 11 by the name of
Gold, 21 by the name of Silver, and eight by the name of Cash.
Maybe things are tight because Shelby has 33 families of Macs—
McArthur, McAuley, McBrayer, McCall, McCarter, McCloud, McClUney,
McCombs, McConnell, McCord, McCoy, McCrary, McCraw, McCurry,
McDanlfl, McDlarmld, McDonald, McDowell, McFalls, MacFarland, Mc
Olll, McGinnis, McGowan, McIntyre, McKee, McKinney, McKnlght, Mc
Mahan, McMurry, MeNeely, McNlchols, McSwaln, and McWhorter.
Now, begorra! Maybe the Macs have all the Kale, Gold, Sliver and
