SI HIS SHADOW
Six Weeks of Winter Yet to
Come Because Sun Shines
on Candlemas Day.
Farewell, a fond farewell, to all
vain hopes that Old Man Winter
might tie caught napping on this sig
nificant Candlemas day.
As clearly etched as a steel en
graving:, the Ground Hog saw his
shadow this noon, unless, perchance,
ho was blind or failed to set the
sun In' back of him. Of course, there
Is' a bare chance that when .a whiffj
of the -chill air stole Into his burrow,"
he simply rolled over and refused to
leave his bed. but the nature fakers
of the middle ages concocted a talc
that he never fails to make a trip
outdoor on Candlemas day, and the
tale has stuck through the years.
There wasn't any question about the
rhadow. The sun was bright and rich
in its golden opulence, dispensing
light while it gave precious little
Six Weeks of Winter.
And the tradition is that the be
shadowed ground hog turns right
back into his, lair for another six
weeks hibernation when he sees the-tell-tale
sign. Which is another way
of saying that winter is gclng to
stage some real cold 'weather before
The history of Ground Hog day Is
interesting. Not so many years ago.
It was February "1. in 'most parts at
the- United States, but within the last
quarter of a century it has been
changed to February 2. In some, sec
tions the controversy as to the right
date has not been settled yet. For
centuries the weather conditions on
this date have, been -Supposed to gov
ern' the following six weeks.
Scientists Are Scoffers.
In England and Scotland .Candlemas
day Is rich in tradition, and a-proverb
has itthat,, if the .day be cloudy and
gloomy, winter Is" practically over; while
If -It be bright -and fair, "the -half -of
winter's to, come' and mair."
Of .course. Science spelled with a,
capital S personally conducted by the
cold and critical meteorologists; has
scoffed at Jhe ground hog' idea for a
good many years. Nevertheless", the
ground hog never goes further astray
In his annual venture, in forecasting
than a certain well-known forecaster
does at critical moments, "especially but
that s another story altogether."
