Spring is coming

From the March 19, 1914 Skidmore New Era (Skidmore, Missouri), page 9:

Spring Day

The Spring sunshine of Sunday afternoon was enough to bring forth the pleasure loving people of Graham in full force.  All afternoon people might be seen walking leisurely in most every direction. Then automobiles in great numbers were constantly coming and going, while buggies and carriages innumerable were adding their share to the passing throng.  Some few people betook themselves to their porches with easy chairs and late magazines, but last and not least of the pleasure seekers was a merry party of boys and girls on horseback, who went cantering through the streets filled with the buoyancy of youth and seemed the happiest, jolliest ones of the afternoon.
