Around Our TOWN
By KENN DKUM.
A Cleveland farmer who lives in a section lilt by the hail storm last
week was standing over on the court square one day this week telling
about it. Several men were listening.
"The hall was at least a foot deep near my house," he said.
“I’ve heard many times of hail being that deep on the ground,"
spoke up one listener, “but I'll never believe it until I see It.”
The man telling of the storm looked at thu other for a split second,
then turned to others in the group and said: "I wish he had been there
and one of those stones had bumped him on the head. We'd have one
less pest in the county.”
Just think how many of us know a number of people we like to sec
the same thing happen to? Some—drat it!—would like to stand this
col yum out under a shower of hailstones large as elephant eggs.

A letter to relatives from Mrs. Frank Hoyle, who sailed last week to
visit the grave of her son, tells about It. When she reached New York
from Shelby a courtly army officer met her as she stepped frbrfi the
train. “How do you do, Mrs. Hoyle?" he asked. He knew in advance Just
what mothers were coming and on what trains. At the desk in the Com
modore hotel a clerk Informed the Shelby Oold Star mother that she
was not to tip any bellboy or other employe. "Everything here Is free for
Oold Star mothers. If you need anything, or desire anything, Just call,”
he add*L A few minutes later Mrs. Hoyle was shown Into a room on an
upper floor where other mother# who would go over on the same boat
were assembled. They all expected her and made her welcome when ehe
walked in. A bellhop had struggled up In the meantime With her bag
gage Mrs Hoyle offered a tip, feeling that his labor had been worth It.
“No ma’am," he replied. "Nothing doing. We don’t want anything from
you mothers. Wish we could do mure. If there is anything I could bring,
let me know. Wc hope you enjoy yoflr stay in New York and have a fine

THEY'RE FOND OF SHELBY
BOYS IN WASHINGTON. WHY?
It Isn't likely that any city of Shelby’s size In America has more
natives employed In Washington. Shelby boys have gone to Washing
ton and made good In many lines of business. Nearly everywhere you
turn Is same former ShelbyUe. One particular reason , for this Is the
chain of drug stores operated there by the People’s drug company. There
ere very few of them to the Washington sector In which a Shelby boy Is
not working or has not worked.
Years ago that firm decided Its best employes were from the South
Since that time the majority of the young men started In business by
| them came from south of the Mason-Dbcon line, and a goodly percent
age of them from North Carolina. An example: Dewitt Quinn, who
started in the drug business in South Shelby and later moved nearer
town—in fact, Just a whisper off the square—Is acquainted with one of
the officials of the Washington firm. He has recommended 16 Shelby boys
to the firm and 13 of the 18 have made good and are still with the Peo
Who knows, b’golly, some of these days a Bhelby boy may move In
that Pennsylvania avenue mansion where Mr. Hoover lives now?
Shelby Shorts: Odd McIntyre hasn't anything on this corner: they
called us "Dunk," too. about the time we graduated from the safety-pin
age ... . Over in Freedman, the colored residential section, so they tell
us, is a bush the leaves of which will, to "no time,” draw a boll to head
or draw splinters or what-have-you from your foot or hand .... Wonder

] Fingerprints experts are called In when w« have a robbery ... A number
| of years ago, when both were boys, a well known Shelby surgeon and a
well known motor car dealer were playing In the yard of the former. For
some reason the latter became angry and hung a pumpkin over the head
of the former. Wonder If the surgeon recalls how he felt when he lookec
out upon the world from his odd collar with the "punkin” seeds stream
lng over his face? .... Dr. R. M. Qldney has in his possession a ver
valuable old docket. It is a surveyor's map showing the county lines be
tween Rutherford and Cleveland when they* sliced off a portion of th
neighboring county to make tills one. It Is dated March 37. 1841 an'
was the property of Dr. Gtdney's grandfather, S. S. Gidney. Jame
Logan was the surveyor .... Clint McDade, of Chattanooga, has for
j warded us a complimentary copy of his "Dog's Life," or the trail of Uttli

This picture tells mors than a pigs of

ence! ISO lbs. per acre is an economical,
THIS QUESTION is uppermost in your mind *
just now. No doubt you’d like to discuss it
.vith the men who know by experience and
:tudy, so we have asked this question for
/ou, of hundreds of authorities. College offi
:ials, agricultural leaders, editors, success
ul farmers, unite in the opinion that the
.nswer is YES.
Here is a summary of their views: In view
jf light fertilizer applications under the
•.rop, and because of the extreme importance
»f making high acre yields this year, cotton
;nd corn should be liberally side-dressed
At right are the fig
ures of Chilean Ni
, trate on cotton for
| the past 8 years.They
tell the profit story.
Read them! Act!
The figures at tight
show you the effec
tiveness of Chilean
as side-dressing for
corn. They are an
average of 8 years’
lOO LB. BAGS
TVtt# illustration is an exact copy of an unratouched photograph
with quick-acting nitrogen. Assuming a
reasonably favorable season, this practice
will pay any farmer who plants cotton and
corn, even at present crop prices.
SIDE-DRESSING with Chilean Nitrate
of Soda is the sure way to reduce the
cost of making a bale of cotton. E. C. West
brook, cotton and tobacco speciallcr, Georgia
State College of Agriculture, point* out in
a survey of the cotton situation, that farmers
who made a bale an acre last year, made their
cotton at 8 cents per lb. of lint. Side-dressing
with Chilean Nitrate alone, added nearly $7
per acre to the value of the crop.
If you didn’t put Chilean under your crop,
it is all the more important to side-dress
liberally with this quick-acting nitrogen
fertilizer. It makes doubly sure of your profit
Because It’s NATURAL
Chilean Nitrate of Soda is the natural ni
trate, the original SODA that American
farmers have used for more than 100 years.
Because of its natural origin Chilean con
tains a number of so-called “impurities”_
Iodine, Boron, Magnesium, Calcium,
Potassium. Each of these is a plant food
in itself. They combine to make Chilean
