CAN YOU RECALL A LIKE v
This was an interrogation given to
Mr. Martwell. He said: "I remem
ber well Just such weather as we are
passing through now 2S years ago.
It was Christmas week and I was
living with Robert Tlltoh on the John
Magowan farm. The weather was so
spring-like that the grass began to
grow and peach trees of an early va
riety were in bloom. Later in tho
winter the weather became Intensely
cold, and tliero was no peach crop
that edr." Mart Wells was then
2S years old and this incident is fresh
in his memory.
Rev. J. W. Crates says: "I lived in
the state of Massachusetts when we
had weather Just like this about 40
yearb ago, when people went about
their business In their shirt sleeves."
ANOTHER TOBACCO RECORD
Nlm Gilvln, of the Sldeview neigh
borhood, last week delivered 1.G30
bticks of tobacco, which was raised
on one and one-half acres. Tho crop
weighed 2,655 pounds and brought an
advance of $408.30. This Is certainly
some record, nnd we are wondering
who will be able to beat It.
