A VIEW OF IHELB^
or TIIE Al'LD I.ANG SYNE
If the audience will come to order and give strict attention, we 11
forfet, for a moment or two, the Shelby of today-Shelby of over 10.000
people, scores of petting flappers, flask-toting boys and other evil in
fluence*—and hark back to the auld lang syne. Back to the days when
It was a cheerful, little town "remote from all dissipations and with no
Inducement* for useless extravagance."
Yes, there was such a day. Or, at least, the boosters of that day
so proclaimed, although the cynical may say that the boosters of three
score years ago may have been as given to exaggeration as are present
day chamber of commerce looters.
Remember when the Reverend S. R Trawlck operated the Shelby
Seminary for "young ladles and young gentlemen" In a portion of the
building now known a* the Victor hotel?
You older ones may, but for the rest of us It was Just One of those
things that happened before the war (whatever war Is most convenient
for your agr t,
But, back to the seminary—John Hoyle, young son of Mr. P. L.
Hoyle, has unearthed • bulletin advertisement of the Shelby Seminary
of 1874 , 3helby> chief Institution of learning 67 years ago. Rev. Mr. Tra
wlek was assisted In the operation of the seminary by Mrs. Bettle Tra
wlck and "other competent teachers’’ Rev. Mr. Trawick, who boasted
the degree of "A. M ", was principal and Mrs, Trawick was teacher of
music and ornamentals. (Say, you old timers, what was meant by "orna
mentals"?). The fall term It was announced would open on August 4,
and continue for 30 weeks or five months.
One paragraph of the advertisement was given over to an elucida
tion of several very Important reasons why parents should send their
girls and boys to the Shelby seminary. This paragraph Informs:
"The mineral springs in the immediate vicinity, the pure
mountain air. and Shelby's remoteness from all dissipations and
with no inducements for useless extravagance, make Shelby a
mo6t desirable educational location. It is accessible by railroad
from Charlotte, only a few miles by Hack which meets the train
each day.” »
Presumably the hack referred to met the Seaboard train at Cherry
vtUe or Stubbs.
Then there was a rate list for tuition and board. It ran like thia;
Spelling, reading and beginning' English 810; English studies and
Mathematics $18; Entrance fee *1; Bookkeeping *10; Music on Plano
*20 (use of instrument *3); Board for young ladies with principal *60
term; Board for young men in town *10 to *20 per month.
Who about Shelby'remembers very much about the old seminary?
I Wonder If there are any of the students of the school now living here?
! if so, it would be intere- ting to hear more about the school and it* regu

OH. WELL. LIFE SEEMS
JUST THAT WAT
It's hud to live up to tin* colyum. People seem to think that the
perpretrator thereof should be an Important looking, handsome, digni
fied personage. A guy with a lot of personality and It, so to speak.
But what a disappointment!
Somehow we'l! never forget the pained surprise of Gideon Price, the
Lattimore florist, when he learned that the conductor of the colyum
was not built on the lines of Jess Willard with a facial make-up like
Rudolph Valentino and the Intelligent expression and commanding man
ner of Franklin D. Roosevelt. He came in one day to express apprecia
tion for complimentary remarks about an exhibit at the Lattimore com
munity fair. He had seen a tall, distinguished looking man (none other
than A. E. Cline) there that day and he got the Idea that he had seen
the wicked Influence behind this tangle ©type. When he came in and
Inquired someone pointed out an Insignificant appeulng lightweight
with a blank expression covering the entire map from ear to ear. "H—!",
he exclaimed. “That’s not him; fee's a dignified looking fellow."
But It was, and Mr. Price hasn't been back since. Doubtless he quit
i reading the colum that day. (Which is a pretty good answer to a couple
of queries as to why a photo of the writer Isn't carried at the top as is
done In Odd Mac’s column).
Then this week came another such disappointment—disappointing
only to the visitor. Z< > Huffman, staunch patron of the department
who lives in Shelby had as his visitor Joe A. Costner, well known cltlaen
of the upper county section where the mountain knobs stick their noses
high up in the clouds. Mr. Costner had been reading the colyum ever
so long and he had a hankering to see what its originator looked like.
After warning his guest that he might be disillusioned, Mr, Huffman
brought him. It was an entertaining visit and some day we hope to visit
the knob section and repay it. (No, Mr. Costner said -nothing about
turning the surplus corn Into anything*. But as Mr. Huffman and his
guest walked down stairs we heard the guest say: "I swan, you know, I
thought he’d at least be a big fellow."
Maybe we’d better go Into seclusion and be an anonymous mystery
or something like that when not appearing In lines of type,
<P. S. Bee how easy It » to fill up space; we had very little to write
home about today).

NO CARS THEN, NO
PARKING SPACE NOW
i Prom P. Y. W., of Lawrencevllle, Os., comes the following commun
“How many can remember when Shelby didn’t have any paved
streets, water works, whiteway or stop and go lights?
“An annual vtsitor to Shelby for more than twenty years, can re
member the changes better perhaps than one who has been walking
the streets for the same length of time.
“I paid my first visit to Shelby 23 years ago. A few of the main
sidewalks were freshly paved and the children of the town were merry
with their skates. Each one carried a stick so he could stop when he
reached the end of the pavement.
"I spent my first night in 8helby at the Oentral hotel and had quail
on-toast for breakfast. 1 went alone then, but the next time five of us
went and three stayed at home. Some change here? My second visit
to Shelby was March 1. 1910. The streets were torn up by a big ditching
machine, preparing for water mams. It had been raining and mud was
plentiful, but it didn’t bother the motorists, for I didn’t see a single au
tomobile. On Monday, July 31, 1931, 1 drove around the public square,
looking for a place to park my Ford, but every place was taken on both
sides, so I went down near the Southern depot and talked to Tom Rob
erts for awhile. On my first visit 1 walked over the town alone and
slied up the place as best I could. I found one brick school house and
other buildings in keeping with all good little town*. It compared very
favorable with my home town, but today there are more school children
In Shelby than the entire population of my home town. One experience
I shall never forget. On my eecond visit I had occasion to visit the
court house. I walked through the building looking for a certain office
that we have In Georgia, but couldn’t find It. A door being open to
another office, I stepped in and asked some men If they could direct
me to the ordinary’s office. They replied "You must be from 8. C." I had
to tell them that I was from Georgia, and what I was there for. Soon
I and my three dollars were parted, and when the good Brother C. F.
Sherlll returned these papers to the proper place to be recorded that
closed the first chapter as far as the laws of N. C. were concerned.
“We were In Shelby when the First National bank and other build
ings collapsed and hope I will never witness another such disaster.
“A trip to Shelby wouldn't be complete without a visit to the Cen
tral Methodist church to hear the Hon. Clyde Hoey teach his large Sun
day school class. Had he been so inclined he would have been one of
the great preachers of the world ”
