Cliffside, Aug. 23. — Hello friends. Rain! rain! and does it seem dark and dreary out of doors. This sure would be a good night for murder. But let’s don’t let our thoughts dwell along that line. There is a silver lining to every cloud so with a happy heart we should always think on the bright side of life.
During the past week the highway going from Cliffside to Forest City has been under construction, using the old road as a foundation a new road is being built. It was a one way street through Cliffside Sunday. One line of cars would have to wait until the others had passed by and then the last car going by would carry the flag to the others waiting at the end of the street.
