Cliffside, Sept. 13. — Hello, friends. You’ve heard it said the Merry-go-Round Broke Down but the Merry-go-Round at the Colfax Fair at Ellenboro was still going round Saturday night. Did you go to the fair? The exhibits were as good as usual. What the Twin Reporters liked best were the two plays put on by the Sauline Players, of New York, in the high school auditorium Friday and Saturday nights. We can truly say Ellenboro does credit to her town.
