, If booze could be bought on every i
corner ,the government would have
to retain First Aid stations and Bed
Cross nurses at every mile post on
every public highway in the country
Wrecking cars and crews would line

handy to puli automobiles apart
when they met head-on and tall
on and sideways and cross-wise. '
■ .
Every third man in the United
States would have to turn police
man, and court houses would have
to be so thick over the country that
they would be In hollering distance
ol one another. Townships would b*
fenced in and used for Jails. Pedes
trians would never attempt to walk
down or up a main rdad. They
would be provided with little pig
paths several hundred yards away
from the lines of travel.
Cities would of necessity quanan
tine against all automobiles. It would
take 1 thousand plumbers, 10 thou
sands machinists, and 20 thousand
common laborers to clear our streets
every Monday morning after the
Sunday frolics- If cars were permit
ted to enter our towns. Speed linn's
would have to be abolished. And
women would wear shot-guns tied
around their waists while milking or
chopping cotton.
If whiskey could be had with the
ease and convenience of 25 year’s
ago, it would require 5 grave digger,'
to every hundred persons residing
in this land of ours—to lay away
her victims. Undertakers would be
as 'EKtcJc as whiskers'on a 'Bdlxfiil
vtk's chin. Ambulances and hearses
would run in sections and carry
trailer. Embalmers would be forced
CO work overtime, and Judges ami
Juries would work night and day in
order that there might be standing
room at the chaingangs.
All of these calamities would com*
because the times have changed
since the advent of flying machines
and good roads and bone-heads and
reckless living, and s6 many people
would get drunk at a time-there
wouldn't be anybody left to nurse the
baby or put out the cat. Polks are no
worse than they useter be. It's sim
ply the change in our way of 'ic
ing that would make it Impossible
to compete with John Barleycorn.

hustling around niakiug prepara

through the Spring garden method.
Florida vegetables at N. , prices,
make all of us anxious to gather our
own truck from our own little back
yard. I did this thing two years ago.
that is—all except gather the truck.
(There was none to gather.>
I recall how interested I was in
that garden. I bought posts and
wire and hired a good cigarette
smoker to build a fence ior me. He
work 5 hours a day and smoked 3
hours a day and charged me for It
hours. He sharpened his saw 4 dif
ferent times while he was fencing
for me. Hut the job cost me on'.'
$43.25 and about half my religion.
1 walked out to my garden one
morning after having been as busy
as a woman at a rummage sale all
the previous week—getting things
planted, and I observed my neigh

and lettuce over there. And the

I “shooed" the flock back toward
home with a rock, but they contin
ued to visit my garden just the same.
They would scratch up 2 rows of
seed, while I was planting one. That
bunch of fowls could have dug the
Panama canal In 3 months. They
were so systematic, they took every
thing by rows. The old rooster would
raise sand if a hen overlooked a hill
of anything.
I permuted my patience to prevail
and finally got up a few sprouts
here and there. The moles root"$'j
subways in every, direction. No seidj
or plant seemed able to escape them ■
and the chickens, but as I said—I
saw a few signs of my efforts. A
week before my Irish potatoes crack

bugs encamped around- gach pros

a plant ever got its head an inch
above the ground.

get a chance to hoe any. When it
cleared off. I ventured out there,

Horned Toads, Big Fish, Blonds
And Divorces-By Ramblin’ Bill
Editor of The Star;
My youngest son Jack played
hookey from school one day this
week and ventured Into the desert
wilds and captured a "homed toad"
which he has asked that I send to
Renn Drum. He wants everybody in
NortSi Carolina to know that he
caught him with his own hands. He
has named (\Jm "Arizona Lighting’
as he seems to be about the liveliest
young reptile we have ever seen.
When he arrives, do not become
frightened because even though he
might look dangerous, he Is as harm
lew as a June bride on her wedding
night. He will neither bite, sting new
tell lies on you, and you will find
him to be a perfect gentleman in
every respect.
You should catch him some small
red ants and black ants, flies, etc,,
and put him m a box with plenty of
dry sand as he likes to bury himself
in the sand occasionally when he
happens to be blue and disgusted
with" this ‘Hoover Prosperity,’ I be
lieve" he Is a Democrat because I
showed him ’Hoover's picture’ and lie
spat at It and looked very angry. I
then showed him A1 Smith’s picture
and he looked pleased and If a Horn
ed Toad ever smiled Arizona Light
ening did surely do so.
Go To England.
I am sure that he will make the
trip all right as X_ have sent them
all the way to England and they
were just as fresh and full of pep
when they arrived in the Kingdom
ns when they were galivanting in the
desert sands.
Jack says when he becomes a man
he will catch you a full grown
Mountain Lion and send to you. He
has ambitions to become a cham
pion wrestler and is getting ail the
training possible during his early
days. Evidently, he does not enter
tain ambitions to become a college
professor because we cannot keep
him in school more than three days.,
per week ahd when ’he" Is not'dod§-~
Ing the truant officer, he is playing
hide and seek with his mother
around the wood shed. He likes to
play with Horned Toads, Oila Mon
sters, Giant lizards. Bull snakes, and
other desert confetti and he Is es
pecially fond of blend girls. This one
trait only makes him akin to me, as
I do not like snakes and reptiles at
all but have never found any fault
with blonds. However, I am told
that blonds are more dangerous than
the reptiles of the desert. One just
killed her husband here a few days
ago because she caught him joy
riding with a brunette of the eenor
ita type. No one ever heard of a
snake being jealous like that.
Shelby Fishing.
I Just read a very good fish story
In The Star where a gent from
Shelby caught a 35 lb.. Bock fish.
That was fine. But when anyone
wants to actually catch fish come
to Phoenix and visit the hundred
and one artificial lakes where bass
abounds, or take a little trip to the
Gulf of California 350 miles from
here and catch some real fish.
Should X tell the site of fish I caught
in the Oulf just 100 miles from AJo,
Arizona, everybody in Shelby would
cancel their subscriptions to The
Star for publishing such. But the
best way is to come out here and
take a fish trip, and bring some of
them 25 pound fish along for bait.
Get a Divorce.
While on this trip, one can visit
Reno, Nevada, and get a divorce in
six weeks time. It's not far and lots
of Phoenix people avail themselves
of the divorce evil while on their va
cation and usually bring back
another wife with them.
Mad AU the Time.
My neighbors states that his wife
is the most even tempered woman
in the world. She is mad all the
time. Friends wife and I have only
quarreled once since we were mar
ried. It started In 1917. We were
married that year. This is the age
of consistency and we are trying to
be consistent.
I note that the luxury or sales tax
was passed by the North Carolina
legislature at their last session. I
Hope that kissing one’s wife was
not included In that bill as a luxury.
Even so, I am sure that they will
not be able to collect a great amount
on that Item, but should they have
Included a tax for kissing the maid,
well, It might have been different.
We have no maid, so that lets me
out, but I am glad there is no law
to prevent an old codger like me
from sitting on his front porch and
watching the pajama parade pass
by.
Pajama Rate.
I do not know whether the paja
ma erase has hit North Carolina or
not, but Its surely hit this state. Old
girls, young girls, tell girls, small
girls, brown girls, blond girls and
black girls and girls and women of
all description are wearing pajamas
on the streets. In my opinion, they
look like the dickens and I would
rather see them wear an old fash
ioned calico dress or even a bathing
suit than pajamas. But they seem
to think they look cute in pajamas,
or else they are trying to compete
with Hoover times, because pajamas
cost about a dollar wherein a dress
costs several dollars. Can’t blame ’em
I guess. If Hoover's re-elected wa
will all be lucky to wear BVD’s and
in another four years, we will nit
be able to carry an overcoat let alone
purchase one.
Sincerely,
RAMBLIN’ BILL.
