Sunday school is progressing nicely at Trace.
A large crowd attended the last days of Howard Adams’ school Friday. All reported a fine time.
James Carter of Monaville was visiting home folks of Hoover Sunday.
Wonder if Daniel McCloud got all the news Sunday evening.
Howard Adams went up Hoover whistling “Hard Times.” His mustache caught on fire.
Wonder what Burl Mullins was interested in Saturday evening that he forgot to shave.
There are several sick children in our town with whooping cough at present.
Jackson McCloud is making his home at Daniel McCloud’s.
We are all listening for the wedding bells to ring on Hoover. Look out Burl, you will be sure to hear them.
Shade Smith of Whirlwind was calling on friends at Daniel McCloud’s Sunday.
Burnie Adams is very ill with whooping cough at this writing.
Wonder why Will Adams was stepping so high Saturday? He must have been afraid of getting his sox muddy.
Wonder why Lucy McCloud looks so down hearted these days? Cheer up Lucy, you have made a bad mistake.
The funniest thing we heard last week was Mrs. Dixie Adams making Howard change beds.
