WHAT A BLOW THIS MUST
BE TO THEM.
Poor old Odd McIntyre! We hope he doesii t feci hurt.
Last week Ramblin’ Bill, the Cleveland county boy who has been
many places and seen many things, wrote that he valued this tangle
3 type more highly than New York Day by Day.
And today comes a message from an Intelligent tbound to be) young
Mew York lady who says that she reads this colyum regularly but never
read McIntyre but once in her life, and that time she was visiting in
Shelby. But as for Walter Winclrell, she says “That's something else
again.” Walt, y’know, Is the guy who talks out of school and tells when
certain prominent families are expecting the stork and what-not.
Thanks, ma'am; if you'd move to Shelby we’d place you in the first
low—the brunette second to the right—of the Miss Shelby contestants.
Speaking of the Musses Shelby (there’s quite a number of them how),
an anonymous note informs that there’s a girl over at the Cleveland
Cloth mill who should be in the contest.
Why not name her? There are several of those w’hite-and-blue uni
formed lassies who wouldn't be out of place in a beauty contest.

Says the Avenue Ambler of The Gastonia Gazette
Not infrequently the worthy are forgotten, while the glory -,of ih?
undeserving lingers on.
We should like to nominate for oblivion:
Virgil, because he wrote the Aeneid.
Thomas Heflin, because he brays like a jack-ass
A. D. MacLcam, on general principles.
.Josephus Daniels, because he thinks he can run the state of North
Caroltna, and because he thought he could dress the navy in striped
pajamas, and for a lot of other reasons we can’t print.
Mabel Walker Willebrandt, because she thinks she is the smartest
woman in America.
Bishop Cannon, so we won't have to read about him in the papers
Robert Montgomery, because of that look on his face,
Sidney Smith, because he changed the comic strip to a tale of trag
And everybody who disagrees.
“If it were not for the /spotlights on the court house uptown Shelby
would be so dark at night,’' chimes in H. H. C., “that we’d have to dig up
grahdpap’s lantern and carry it with us when we go to the talkies.”
Keep howling, mate; that’s the only way we got easier swinging doors
at the postoffice.
IN m GOOD OLD
DAYS; WHAT, WHAT?
Remember about 17 years ago when 300 of the 330 telephone pa
trons in Shelby got all hot and bothered and threatened to take out
their telephones if the proposed &0-cent increase in rates was put into
That was the year—1914, if you’re not good at figures—when Sloop’s
drug store staged a contest and gave away a pony. Who got it?
Ladd Hamrick, of Boiling Springs, won the Hoey oratorical contest
'It was in April of 1914 that the Hartness roller mill began opera
tions. The town was so enthused over the new Industry that it fell
sorry—really, it did—for tank towns that did not have roller mills. Be
fore then Shelby’s elite had been shouldering a turn of com and toting
it to a corn mill, or buying flour made in Milwaukee.
A big Tom Thumb wedding was staged In the spring of 1914 with
Raymond Carroll aa the groom, Mildred Clendenin as the bride and Bre
vard Lattimore as the parson.
And, oh,-boy! The ladies were not stepping so high wide and hand
some then. Hobble skirts!
That was the spring John Ross escaped from the stale prison. What
double murder was he convicted ol?
Shelby Shorts: Wonder how Shelby seems to Harold Gratfin, ol Sam
soun, Turkey, without Heavy's cafe and bacon-and-tomato sandwiches

AND ADDRESS IT!
A Teader butts in with this: "Lately you have referred to & Shelby
boy who met a girl and married her nine days later. Then you told of
the young man who would not announce his marriage. Items of that
type are better with the names given. Will you please give them?”

FAT FOLKS MAKE
Some of the old-timers, y'know, said that it is an ill wind that
doesn't cany along a good puff for somebody. So it is.
Many people, we judge by all the interest in dieting, do not get such
a kick out of being fat. Its a nightmare, or maybe two nightmares to
them. But. on the other hand, did you ever realize that the fat folks are
making somebody—just who we know not—rich a penny at a time?
More Shelby people, to get down to the point, are interested in their
weight than you might think, or you and you and you.
Last week Chiv Champio nand Alf Eskridge unlocked the penny
scales in front of the drug store “just a whisper off the square'* and in
it were 6.235 coppers. Lessee now—one, two .three, four, five, six—that
mounts up to sixty-two dollars and two bits, doesn't it?
Believe well get a pair of scales, set them in front of the Woman’s
club room, then quit our job and go fishing. Maybe it's a bum idea but
Woolworth had something like that on his mind when he started cor
nering all the buffaloes and thins m America.
