Man Who Robbed Employer On Day
Of Funeral Jailed In Rutherford
Hold Boyd Lovelace On Charge He
Stole $500 While Utah Selvey
Attended Burial.
Rutherfordton, April 8.—Chief
Austin of Forest City, accompanied
by Cornelius Stacey, a taxi driver
of this place arrived here this week
with Boyd Lovelace, alias Steve
Lovelace from New Orleans where
he was arrested Friday night. Love
lace is “Charged with taking around
$500 from the home of Utah Selvey,
prominent farmer who resides near
Forest City, / while the latter was
attending the funeral of Max Smith
last Thursday. Lovelace purchased a
ticket in Forest City over the Sou
thern Railway to Blacksburg, 8. C.,
and there he purchased a ticket to
E! Paso, Texas. Officers secured this
information and w.red the descrip
tion of Lovelace to New Orleans
where he was arrested when he got
.off to change trains.
Lovelace told officers that he had
an accomplice, who is being inves
tigated and that they got $205 in
cash each from the Selvey hom°.
Lovelace had $130 of the money on
his person when arrested. He was
lodged in jail here and will be giv
en a hearing in Recorder’s Court
soon.
Lovelace, who had been working
for Mr. Selvey for about five years,
was left at the home while the Sel
vey family attended the funeral.
Upon return of the family Lovelace
was missing, also a large strong box
in which Mr. Selvey kept his mon
ey and valuable papers. Neighbors
reported seeing Lovelace leave a
patch of woods near the house the
afternoon oi the funeral. The next
morning the box was found in the
woods open. Officers got busy and
soon located Lovelace. Mr. Selvey
had offered a reward for the re
turn of Lovelace.
Cleveland County Home For Aged
County’s Best Live-At-Home Spot
-X-—
Model Institution Grow ns Own Food And Feed And Will
Grow No Cotton This Year.
Peculiarly enough C eveland coun
ty’s most successful live-at-home
fp.rm Is the home ot people woo
have no home—the county home
for the aged and infirm.
A tour of the county home budd
ings, barns and farms is a rare
treat in that it is a model institu
tion of which the lounty should be
proud. The erection, following a
fire, of several new. modem and
fire-proof brick butMlngs gave the
county home manager! John Ab
Borders, and Mrs. Borders a back
ground upon which to work out one
of the best kept and attractive sites
In the county.
Clean And Inviting
Just off highway 20. east of
Shelby, and a short distance from
the county fair grounds, the re
modelled county home plant is a
great improvement ever the old
Institution and will class with any
similar institution in the state. The
visitor is first impressed by the
cleanliness and attractiveness of the
outer buildings and grounds. The
walks and lawn are au clean as the
floors of the average home add
here and there ara' dotted with
flower beds and shrubbery and
more flowers and shrubbery are be
ing put out this spring.,The main
building, in which the manager and
his family live along with the agrd
white inmates is a nearly spotless
structure. The dining room of the
home Is a light, airy place and
spotless. On the main floor, too is
a reception room, in whici) are a
radio, piano, reading table and
othei' comforts. The tedrooms are
as clean and order! / as the bed
rooms In the best of homes—and
Were found so on a surprise visit of
inspection. On each floor are bath
rooms for both sexes and all In
mates are required to take or are
given a bath each week.
In the basement of the main
structure is the dairy plant and the
dining room of the short-term con
victs who work on the county home
farm, separate tables being provid
ed for the white* and blacks.
On the basement floor, too, is the
pantry—one of the most surprising
pantries in the county. It is fitted
with hundreds of jars and cans of
fruit, preserves, sausage, Jelly, mo
lasses, cherries, pickles tomatoes
and everything to eat. Every
thing in the pantry was produced
and canned on the farm and the
big quantity stored there now is
| what is left from daily consumption
islnce the last canning season.
No Cotton.
The inmates- of the home and the
working prisoners use approximate
ly 200 pounds of flour and 300
pounds of meal each week according
to Mr. Borders, and It was neces
sary to purchase very little last
year. This year it will not be ne
cessary' to purchase any wheat and
meal, because not a single pound
of cotton is to be grown on the
farm this year as every acre will be
given over to grain, corn and food
and feed crops.
Over 100 acres in the farm are
under cultivation and 75 acres are
already in a fine stand of wheat and
oats. Scattered over the other acres
are Irish and sweet potatoes, alfal
fa, soy beans, hay—in fact, every
thing to eat and feed. '
Negro Quarters.
Just across from the main build
ing is the brick building used as
quarters for negro inmates. This
building Is equally as spotless as the
imaln building and the inmates are
j clean and well kept.
! A third brick building is the
quarters of the farm prisoners. The
rooms are large and airy and clean.
The prisoners have a modern bath
room aa recreation room in
which there are tables and reading
material.
Complete Plant.
Over the remainder of the main
■section is everything that could be
needed for a large farih. The home
