Sergt. John B. Joyner will arrive in a few days from San Francisco for the first visit home in four years. he is back from a soldiers’ trip around the world and will be furloughed for one month. he goes from here to Chicago about the 5th of January.
Miss Geneva and James with their father, Rev. J. W. Joyner, had Thanksgiving dinner with the family of Mr. B. F. Boydston on Locustdale Stock Farm in District No. 4. It was an ideal farm-raised dinner and had everything one could want. Everything served was raised on the farm, with the exception of the sugar and coffee. The dinner, Brother Joyner reports, would have satisfied the most exacting and made even a wooden man long for farm life where these dinners grow. It’s good to be there.
