Twin Reporters, June 25, 1936
From The Courier, June 25, 1936
Cliffside, June 22 — “Happy Days are here again.” Ladies and gentlemen, we have with us this week our twin reporter. It seems like old times for us to be back on the job together again. Things are beginning to look better already. Instead of sitting out in the open we are inside wrapped up in winter coats. Who would have thought we would be wearing coats in June? This is a funny world any way. What do you think? It’s a grand ole world too; huh?
A boy is always appreciated who goes around doing kind deeds. Thanks to a young man who was so kind Saturday night. The young ladies are indeed grateful for the kind deed. Maybe the favor can be returned.

Dedicated to Mrs. R. B. Watkins for her 64th birthday, June 16, 1936.
Tho her hair is streaked with silver
And her steps a little slow,
She’s as pure as morning sunshine
In her life on earth below.
She’s a light if inspiration,
In my life, I want to be
Something helpful to somebody
As Mrs. Watkins is to me.
As she treads the upward journey,
Life to her has been so sweet.
May God give her years to serve Him
First to be as He’d have her be.
Life here below is what we make it,
Be it ever great or small;
If we learn to love and treat Him,
“Twould be heaven for us all.
As we journey up the pathway
Ever singing some glad song;
Sing for God and all who love Him,
Won’t that be a happy throng?
When we gather in that city,
Just beyond the crystal stream;
Trouble here will be over,
Death will only be a dream.
So I’m looking upward
And I’ m trusting day by day,
In my God and yours Mrs. Watkins,
Throughout all eternity.
—Mrs. Fred Robinson
