Around Our TOWN
By KENN BRUM.
The gang of fellow*, who were ‘‘that no 'count bunch of boys’’ about
j Shelby 25 years ago, seems to have started something when they suggested
! holding a reunion of the gang here on fair week this fall.
References to the old scenes and the old days stirred fond memories
in many breasts, and from cast, north, west and south comes word that
j former Shelby and Cleveland county citizen* will join In with the boys of
other days and make It a real home-coming event. Dr. J. S. Dorton has
already stepped up with an announcement of prises for former citizens
The big kick of the proposed home-coming week, however, will be
the pleasures of once more visiting boyhood and girlhood scenes and
mingling once again with friends of younger days.
From the early Interest already shown, this colyum is lead to be
lieve that Shelby streets will be packed on the first of October with
scores ol native sons and daughters, wandering here and there recalling
when such and such a house stood on this spot and when so-and-so lived
on that one. There'll be trips to the favorite swimming holes of other
days, visits back to the old farm, and many yarns spun about events
that, are now Just a delightful bit of history.
Former Shelbyltes, now living elsewhere, may as well begin planning
to come back then It will be too much to miss seeing Shelby of yester
year and Shelby of today all drawn together again.
While the subject Is up, this comer would assure the old "dirty
dozen' group tlrat Chapel s Bend Is still Chapel's Bend. If a single one
of the boys of other days, when they come back the last of September,
can swim up through the rocks at the old Broad river swimming hole,
the drinks will be on this corner.
Harry and Charlie Woodson, Buck Hardin and this colyum tried It
last week. Not one In the group could make more than half the dis
tance up the swift current of water where Shelby boys for 40 years test
ed out theli- swimming prowess.
And up on the steep hillside above, leading to the railroad track, are
Initials of bygone and forgotten lose affairs. Here* a boy's Initial carved
In a heart with those of a girl. Dates ranging from 1000 on until two
years ago can be seen there. What memories they will stir—memories of
days when Susie was Bob'* girl and Bob was Susie's fellow. (Substi
tute your own names).
DIED GOING BACK.
Sad news, this! A letter from C. O. Greene, who gives us a swelled
reeling by claiming to be a regular reader of this corner, informs that
"Arizona Lightning,'* the horned toad sent the colyum some time ago by
Ramblin’ Bill, was found dead near the home of F. E. Greene, R. F. D
carrier, seven or eight miles from Shelby.
Apparently the homed hopper tired overnight of Carolina climate
and started back for the blistering sands of his Arizona desert. The toad
was found on the Seaboard tracks but was not bruised and evidently had
died a natural death because he could not become acclimated. (Mr. Green
contends that the water and chtcken hash this colyum tried to feed him
killed the toad). Our idea is that he tried to get back home too quick and
had heart failure while traveling along the Seaboard tracks west.
If Ramblin' Bill, or his offspring, will send another, well dig him a
bo* of sand and slay flies for him all summer.
nance* are not as targe as they once were in Shelby, and. as Chic
'tale says, well tell you why:
Those of the older set. as they grow older, find It hard to "make a
light of It" any more, and these ultra modem youngsters never believe
m starting to a dance until li o'clock or later.
And, there you are I
Shelby Shorts: “Wonder,’' wonders L. E. D„ “how mahy times the
beans hnve been picked up and turned over and sifted through hands
m that seed counter In front of Suttle's drug store?" . . . Have you ever
noticed how people stand there and sift the beans as they watch the
passing hrongs?.One of our scouts informs that Major Hopper
sells more peanuts (parched goobers) than any merchant in town, and
McSwaln and Son sell more plug tobacco ..... Dr. Dorton is the plain
est-talking man in town—when he's uptown.Shelby girls who
"dassent” wear pjajamas on the streets are buying them to wear at the
beach and on their vacations this summer ..... Hundreds go up and
down the steps to the second floor of the court house here each week
and It’s a two-to-one bet that no one can tell how many steps there are
without going back to count them-A former Shelby girl Is now with
a circus In the state of Maine .... Most people go to Reno to get di
vorced. Fel Babtagton, former Shelbylte, moved there several months
ago and only recently got married.More overhead street signs
swing over business places along the east side of South LaPayette street
•than upon any other street In town .... A little group of Shelbyltes
gathers each morning at 6 o'clock at the mineral water spring in Cleve
land Springs Estates and—gtuate water ... A speedy bunch of college
girls home for the summer to show the old town things and not a single
Miss Shelby nomination In a week .... By the way, not a single can
didate has been entered in the contest to determine who owes the
largest grocery bill In town.
OH. DEAR! IT WAS
NOTHING BUT A GOAT
What an ordeal it is. but it must be carried out.
For generation after generation In this county peopled by sturdy
farm folk it has been a by-word that “when you see it in The Star, it is
so." Occasionally, as is the way with mere mortals, even those who con
tribute their bit to getting out a newspaper, errors slip In. Last week
such a thing happened. Remember the boxed story about the deer that
galloped (do deers gallop, or just gracefully lope along?) through South
Shelby last week? Well, (how mortified we are!) it want a deer. Ho
really it wasn't. It was nothing but a goat, a brown goat at that. The
information coms6 from P. W. G , he who brought the goat to town, and
he should know. For the stumble, a thousand apologise. The Star’* repu
tation for \wracity must be upheld.

OLD KINO COTTON
I am glad to ice the women “tak
ing to cotton" here of late. The de
velopment of the south depends on
the use of cotton goods.
Now. Just yesterday, Mrs. Brown
came down town with a cotton
string tied around her little finger
to remind her that she should take
a loaf of bread home with her. Up
till very recently she used silk ex
clusively for this purpose.
Mies Iva rigger of the Plalnview
neighborhood told my cusin Wlliet
Hurt that she uses cotton thread al
together now In basting her knickers
preparatory to sewing them up with
floes, a do not know this to be a
fact, as I never saw Ira step tnto

has used only pure embossed linen
for this purpose).
