A correspondent from Halcyon at West Fork of Harts Creek in Logan County, West Virginia, offered the following items, which the Logan Banner printed on March 23, 1923:
Out in the air
Out away from town
Away out in the country
Where the trees and birds are found.
There is where my heart is bent
There is where I find content
There satisfaction hangs all around
It even blossoms from the ground.
There is where the Julip bees
Are humming among the trees.
There is where old Barley Corn
Is pouring from his lavish horn.
Hump! And you will say
The city is where I like to stay.
You just don’t know as well as I
Ere the country you would come and try.
Two preachers from Crawley Creek delivered good sermons at Mt. Era Church Sunday.
The stork visited the home of Mr. and Mrs. Cecil Workman March 13th and left a fine boy.
Lawrence Mullins is the proud possessor of a grandson.
