Haynes Memorial largely attended
Cliffside, June 8—Business has been a little better than last week according to the merchants. The weather has been very dry and quite warm for this time of the year. The soda fountain of the drug store continues to be one of the most popular places in town.
The Cliffside Hotel reports a fair week. This pleasant and homelike hotel, of the real home type, is now under the management of Mrs. C.D. Hughes. A few of the guests for Sunday included Mr. Charles H. Haynes, Mr. and Mrs. N. Caldwell, their little daughter, Beth, who is a most attractive child, and young Joe Schull, son of Dr. and Mrs. Schull, of Charlotte.
The R.R. Haynes Memorial Building has a daily average attendance of over a hundred. Considering the time of the year this is an excellent record. The well selected moving pictures are much enjoyed. Mr. Roach, the superintendent, is doing splendid work. He continues as the organist of the Baptist Church.
Commencing last Thursday evening at 7:45, a series of meeting of the Baptist Brotherhood was held in the handsome Baptist Church under the able leadership of Dr. J. T. Henderson, assisted by the Pastor. The meeting was very well attended, as were those held Friday and Saturday evenings. On Sunday three services were held; one at eleven o’clock, the second at three o’clock and the third in the evening. The church was crowded at all three of these fine Brotherhood meetings.
The consensus of opinion is they have done so much good that they should be continued by the Pastor.
The other churches had their usual well attended congregations and the sermons were reported to be excellent.
Mr. and Mrs. Grover Haynes have come to Cliffside for the summer. They make Winter Haven, Florida, their winter home. It is probable that Mr. Haynes will have to return several times to Winter Haven, as he has his business there.
