Twin Reporters, Oct. 29, 1936
From The Courier, Oct. 29, 1936
Cliffside, Oct. 27—We will give you a synopsis of the happenings observed by one who reads The Courier, and if you pay particular attention we will bring out some very peculiar statistics.
We rejoice to have Rev. H. E. Stimson back with us for another year. May the church as a whole do its utmost to cultivate, strengthen and build up a character better fitted for service in the days to come. [?]
The revival at the Baptist church will continue through this week. The visiting minister, Rev. Mr. Lane, of Greer, S. C., is bringing some strong gospel sermons and many are being blessed by attending the services.
The cool air from a drizzly rain is causing the leaves to drop from trees, one by one. The yard and sidewalk are covered; they will soon decay. Seems kind of sad as we watch them fall, but they have finished their work. They have brought to us beauty and shade from the heat of summer’s sun and cooled our heated bodies with their gentle breezes. They have done all that was required of them. The thought comes to us, who have passed the days of activity, have we accompanied that which was ours to do. In His name?
Mr. and Mrs. G. C. Shuford and family and Mrs. H. E. Stimson attended the M. E. Conference in Salisbury Sunday.
Mr. Wesley McMurray, ministerial student of Furman University, visited his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Pink McMurray, last week-end.
Miss Lois Davidson and friend, Miss Virginia Walden, of Limestone, visited the former’s parents, Sunday.
Mr. Davis Hunnicutt, of Mars Hill, son of Rev. and Mrs. J. A. Hunnicutt, spent the week-end at home.
We are sorry to chronicle the illness of Mrs. Fred Greene and Mrs. Maurice Bridges, who are in the
hospital at Rutherfordton, also Mrs. J. Crawford Carpenter, of Dobbinsville. Mrs. Carpenter was a resident of Cliffside for a number of years, and has many friends here who are interested in her recovery.
Mrs. C. M. Harrill, of Caroleen, a sister of Mrs. B. L. Davidson. Miss Myrtle Causby, the efficient nurse, is with Mrs. Harrill at this writing. The hospital is a fine place to go when one has two attentive nurses and the best of surgeons. We wish for all these friends a speedy recovery.
The address given by Mr. Frank A. Barber, of Asheville, to the group of community chest organization in that city, was a timely and helpful topic. If we had more men of this type in our country, it would indeed be a blessing.
To other writers of The Courier: Your column is most interesting. We Miss Francis H. Collins and that Mr. Hoyt M., who caused me so many times to seek old Webster’s dictionary. Old Highlight, of Caroleen. What’s the matter eh? It was easy to read their thoughts and get a deeper meaning of character. Sometimes they were comical, humorous, other times the mind was lifted to higher things. Which proves they were all promoting friendliness and good will to all.
Master Clyde Jackson, on Academy street celebrated his 11th birthday Friday evening with a party. After playing their favorite games they all marched into the beautiful decorated dining room and dainty cakes and hot chocolate were served. And then the joyful surprise of a large white birthday cake with eleven tiny candles, made its appearance. Clyde received just lots of presents. The little friends who were invited were Louise Packard, Ruby Packard, Lois Jackson, Marjorie [Margie] Packard, Lucille Crow, Oreeta Daves and Virginia Daves, Masters Kelly, and Bennie Bridges, Herman and Andy [Ambres] Bracket, Glenn Jackson and Austin Roberson, Jr.
Mr. B. L. Davidson has been elected Superintendent of the Adult Department in the Baptist Sunday School. He brought out some interesting facts Sunday morning on the subject, “Non-Church Membership.”
“Who’s Who” in our column for today: One of the most accommodating and willing to “do something for you” man in our midst is Mr. Geo. C. Shuford.
Mr. M. Hendrick, general manager of Avondale and Cliffside mills, is one of the most understanding and sympathizing men we know.
