Cliffside, May 17.—Hello Friends. We especially want to say hello to all the people who read our column outside Rutherford county. We hear so much about people who read our column from other states who say they like our column and enjoy reading it. The Twins appreciate these kind remarks and with the help of the people who kindly send us news we will try our best to get in the local happenings.
Memorial time. Who is it that does not know what that means? Are you going back to the old home church on memorial day? It is the custom for people to carry flowers and place them on the graves of their loved ones, and the churches usually have a program planned and a big dinner is spread out under the trees. Everybody gets together and renews old acquaintances and meets new ones. Memories of memorial time will often linger in our mind.
