Cliffside, Sept. 6. — Hello Friends. Another rainy night and just a hint of autumn is in the air, or have you noticed the difference. It is harvest time and with it comes the fair. Every year at this time we look forward to the different Fairs. Colfax Free Fair, of Ellenboro, which takes place this week is one of the best for its size in the State. Rutherford County Fair is expecting to be better this year than it has been for years. Much interest is being taken and the reports from the committee are encouraging and it makes everyone want to do the best they can for their own county.
This and That—Charlie McCarthy the dummy is making a sensation…The Big Apple dance is sweeping the country… Glad to have our new teachers with us this year.
