in the Greensboro Watchman May 4, 1922 

The officers of Akron were fortunate in capturing another still there last week which was in operation at the time. We are looking forward to the time when Akron will be a law abiding town. H O G G L E S V I L L E NEWS: So far Mr. Isaac Clary holds the championship for the largest fish taken from Five Mile creek this season. It must have been the one the editor hooked and lost up here some moons ago. The many friends of Mr. Spencer Jack throughout the county will regret to learn that he is ill in a Birmingham infirmary—having been operated on for appendicitis. His condition at present is favorable. Mr. Garland Sledge has a big Buff Orpington hen that has adopted four little kittens. The hen looks after them, and the kittens crawl all over their new mother, sleep under her wings, and seem to be perfectly contented. When the mother cat comes around the hen puts up a fight and chases her away. To convince the “doubting Thomases,” Mr. Sledge brought the hen and kittens to his store last Tuesday afternoon and placed them in the show window, and a large number of people witnessed a strange sight of a hen caring for kittens as if they were little chickens. Radio has taken the country literally by the ears. Nothing like it has ever been known in the history of the world. Receiving sets are being placed in homes, farm houses, business offices, theaters, on moving trains to catch winged words and meandering music from the air, at the rate of a hundred thousand a month. The Watchman begins this week a radio department which will contain brief articles covering something of the history of radios, the mechanics of radio and the broadcasting and utilization of radio. You will miss something if you fail to read the articles.
