Cliffside, April 6—Hello, friends. We are back again with more news and nonsense. It was a surprise to see our column in print and, to tell the truth, we haven’t quite recovered. Many compli-ments were passed and we thank you, even if it was flattery. And then there’s some that call us the “crazy folks.” Naturally it would take crazy people to write a “Krazy Kolumn.”
We notice all the writers put in a good word for our editor. We have not had the pleasure of meeting you personally, Mr. Editor, but from the nice things we have heard, we feel sure his many friends and acquaintances will prove their loyalty by standing by him in his race for the Senate. Wonder if we couldn’t do a little canvassing? (Hope so—Editor).
This coming Sunday we observe the Resurrection of our Lord. He died on the cross for you. What are you doing for Him? Let’s all think of Easter as a time of rejoicing.
The beautiful ordinance of baptism was performed at the Baptist church Sunday night. There were 26 boys and 16 girls baptized. The church was glad to welcome these members into its midst and hope they will profit by their decision in joining God’s rank of Christian workers. Those who were sick will be baptized next Sunday night.
“Twilight Alley” an operetta, will be given at the school house Thursday night, April 9, by the elementary grades. The admission will be 5 cents to everyone.
There is some kind of an animal that stays in the Cliffside post office. To anyone finding out its name, we will give a reward of five cents. Take it easy, Spud: we’re not insinuating.
Wonder why four certain young men were so tickled over an April fool letter they received from Forest City? These young men want to know why the I’s of this letter were dotted with a small circle instead of the customary dot. That reminds us: two of these boys are noted for getting their girls mixed up, but we can’t much blame them, since they are twins; but let us give you a little advice, boys: “Be sure and kiss the right gal good night.”
To D. M. of Alexander: We are as good as our word, and how are you?
As this season of the year approaches a young man’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love, but it seems to us that the girls fancies around here have turned to see which one buy can the prettiest Easter duds.
Listen, folks, if you are ever in Cliffside and feel hungry stop in and visit Proctor’s Café. There you receive a welcome that makes you feel instantly at home. Mr. and Mrs. Proctor offer you the best of foods and service. This café is noted for cleanliness and once you go, you come back again.
Lost, strayed or stolen—A boudoir pillow with mother on the top, and two valuable vases. See “Ern” for reward.
