SI frd ethi part of Georgia quite dif- i
lere t from our State in many partin
iars. When I arrived be June 26
I found my watch 'u 85 minutes be-,
hind the corrot tme. Of couse thbis
diferemes of time waq not a surprise,
but-just a little sngular. However
it is surprising to note the derenc A
in temperature, kspeelafy at night. a
The days air pleasant mogh, so - d
times quite warm frm about 10a.m.
to 4 p. m., but at nlh it is so cool a
that one is complelled to sleep under b
a blanket. The water, too, from o
these mountain springs, compares t
favorably with our "pop on Ice" in
coldness. All fruits are at least one A
month behind that of our climate.
Mulberries, blackberries and plums a
are just beginning to get ripe. Corn
has not tasseled yet; and no cotton u
at all is raised in tis partof Georgia.
