Cliffside, Aug. 1 — Saturday evening a young man and two ladies rolled to the curb at Mills Drug Store here. They ordered soft drinks in a most common-place manner. The drinks were served. The young fellow proceeded to bring out his liquor mixing same then and there. Well, Deputy Sheriff Roy Ramsey was standing just over there and he considered it his solemn duty to act as master of ceremonies. He did. Ramsey stepped up and said, “You’ll have to give me that, son.” You can imagine that Elmer was very much surprised. After an amount of goings on and doings about, bond was arranged and the outfit continued toward South Carolina. Suggestions: “Don’t never do-oo that” when Roy Ramsey is looking.
A little bouquet along the way. He is most prominent as an enthusiastic supporter of civic and political movements in the county as well as in this community. He is a loyal supporter of his political party. He is a fellow who puts on nothing of showmanship, rather his is a quiet self-styled manner, a sanely chosen style. He inconveniences himself to help his fellow. We know from personal experience of such an incident. At a time when none but the assistance of this gentleman could have helped, it was he who gave of his advice and forethought. Naturally, we acknowledge such a noble gesture from a fellow. His church knows him as a prominent and loyal member his community knows him as an outstanding gentleman and you know him as Mr. J. C. Hames.
A movie set: Suggests to me spring cleaning day with all the furniture in the backyard. (As we see in this section.)
Marriage is not and will never be as in other days. You may say this is the opinion of a young scribbler. And, too you could say that he is one who has never tried it. However, today, you see it quite often, when a couple takes the last fateful steps down the middle isle a doubting Thomas on every corner may be heard to slur, “Sucker!”
By the compliments of the Chamber of Commerce, state of New York, we received recently a trade-marked “Supervue” map of New York City. It is the only one of its kind that we have seen. It has some very good information and interesting data about the city. It was copyrighted in 1932 by Samuel Freedman. To the visitor it is a complete handbook of New York. It is of a convenient size and may be slipped into your coat pocket. This map gives a distinctive and detailed view of the city with the island of Manhattan detailed with the super-imposed printing of streets names. Also is shown Brooklyn, Long Island City, The Bronx, Harlem, Greenwich Village, and The Ghetto. A list of any variety of amusement one would care to choose such as yatch clubs, fishing clubs, theatres, boxing and dancing spots and swimming, is placed conspicuously on the map, A simple example in arithmetic is given which enables the visitor to find any given street address with a minimum of effort.
Bits about a few: Louis Smith was in town last week. He was sort of getting his bearings again, as he has not been around for a time. The “school ‘marms” will soon be back! Of late we have seen O. K. Padgett with red-polished finger nails (yoo-hoo). Skimming over the beautiful green expanse of Lake Michigan in a speed boat has been our biggest kick of recent happening. B. B. Goode’s new pair of white shoes really show up larger feet than ours. Lewis Black of the Carolina Store is always in pleasing disposition. Harry Lee Robertson has been in Atlanta for a week. He started to inform us of details about a post graduate course at a dental clinic, or something, and as is characteristic of the fellow, psst! Gone.
