Of Early County

cident In Lives Of Cleveland
And Shelby.
An interesting lecture on the early
history of Shelby and Cleveland
county was given the Shelby Lions
club at the regular meeting last
night by Prof. William White, of
Lattimore,
Prof. White, who is county his
torian, related incidents in the lives
of Col. Benjamin Cleveland and Col.
Isaac Shelby for whom the county
and city were named. He told of
their exploits at the battle of Kings
Mountain and gave historic details
of the section following the Revo
lutionary war. Col. Cleveland’s
troops, the speaker declared, were
really responsible for the victory
over Ferguson at Kings Modntain,
because Cols. Campbell and Shelby
had been repulsed ot 1 ore Cleveland
led his troops up the mountainside.
After the battle the norse' of Fer
guson. British leader, was given
Cleveland. That Col. Shelby was a
courageous leader was shown, the
speaker said, by the iact that he led
three charges up the mountain and
nad his hat shot oft. In conclusion
Prof. White urge dthat anyone who
has information on early history of
the county and section get in touch
with him.
The program was in charge of Dr
Robert Wilson. B. N. Austin, of
Kings Mountain, was reinstated as
a member of the club.

Cotton A heady Up In
County; Planting On
Farmers In Midst Of
Active Season
V -
Major Portion Of Increased Com
Crop Bring Planted Now.
Adams Has Cotton.
Cleveland county larmers tills
week and next will be in their bus
iest season of the vear as they
move from the peak of the corn
planting season Into cotton-plant
ing time.
Many acres of cotto.v have already
been planted, but the major portion
of the crop will be -isnted during
the first two weeks In May.
, Lfp In Two Weeks
Some of the first 'otton up this
year was reported this week by
Glenn Adams, of the Lattlmore
section. Mr. Adams ard his son, As
ton, are rated among the best
farmers In the county Two we-’ks
ago Monday, or on ' pril 10, they
planted some cotton and It was up
and thriving this week
A big percentage of the countv
corn crop is already In the ground
j but the weather permitting this
i week will likely see more coi n
j planted than any other.
Larger Crcp
i The corn crop In Cleveland this
year is oemg increased more than
any other, in the opinion of Faun
Agent R. W. Shoffner. Older farm
ers say that it shouia be the larg
est com crop the county has pro
duced in near two decades.
Truck crops are also being m •
creased and there a*e more Slid
larger gardens than 'ast year when
rural Cleveland returned to the
live-at-home program
Two-Way Dtrrraw
The cotton crop :o the couni y,
the state's largest cotton cotuity, h
being decreased In two ways. The
acreage s being cut down and tn?
fertilizer used is less than in a
number of years. Many observers
say that the cotton acreage is not
being cut to any great extent.
Agent Shoffner says that as yet he
does not-have enough information
to offer an estimate as to the cut
but practically every farmer he has
seen has stated tha: his cotton
acreage was being reduced this
year. The production in the county,
however, will be cut down more be
cause of the decreastd use of fer
tilizer than reduced acreage. One
estimate made is thaf the crop wl.i
run between 40 and 50 thousand
bales, or 15 or 20 thousand under
the 64,000 bales of i.*st year.
Wheat Looks Good
The wheat crop Is reported to tc
I looking good In all factions of the
i county and observers say that It vs
as large as last year’s crop, if not
larger. Considerable comment Is
heard about a pldt of wheat, bet
ter than waist high, on the county
home farm, which is said to be the
best-looking In the Cv>rnty.

17-Year Locust Expected To Show
Up In North Carolina During May
Locusts Have Never failed To M«ie
Regular Visits To Do
Little Harm.
With taxes to pa? fertilizer tc
buy and cotton selling for almost
nothing, >t seems as if farmers have
enough *o worry about But anota
er problem—more of a phenonme
non, perhaps, than t» problem—'s
scheduled to show up soon.
North Carolinians .in May and
June will be able to rbserve one cf
the most phenomenal happenings 'a
the insect world when the 17-your
locust makes its periodical appear
ance, Dr. Z. P. Me^alf, of North
Carolina, State college said yes
terday.
The sound of unusually loud, ris
ty^ and insistent sing’ng of thou
sands of insects in ti e woods Will
herald the emergence of the insects
Next month, Dr. Metcalf said, lo
custs or cicadas will appear In 'he
trees of this state from eggs which
were laid in the Umto of forest trees
in 1815. Tn 1915 the eggs hatch'd
Into very tiny grubs which crawl
ed into the soil and attached them
selves to the roots id trees where
they have been living since, Fully
grown, the locusts whl emerge frcrn
the ground In counMoss thousands
within the next two months.
Careful records kept since the
earliest days of North Carolina his
tory record the regular vlsitatiors
of the 17-year locusts. There i.<
also a species of 13-year cicada and
there are nine broods of the 17*-year
variety appearing In this state m
different years. The brood due to
emerge this year, however, is the
mo6t regular and the largest list
ed.
No great damage will be done by
the Insects, Dr. Metcalf said.
The locusts cannot sting or In
jure people. The nrincipal damage
they do is to lay eggs in the tei ■
minal oranches of forest trees. Ii
this occurred every year it migH
result In harm to the trees, but oc
currlng only every 17 years it dees
not. There have been occasional in
stances in years of very heavy in
festation when fruit trees one or
two years old were hurt.
