Tuesday morning dawned clear aud
the sun shone brightly throughout
the day. No rain had fallen in the
meantime to extinguish the forest
iires, hence this theory seems to be
exploded. Au old'eitizen of Boli
var, who has been a close observer
wf the weather, says it s "Indian
summer," aud that often within his
memory he has seen similar con
ditions at this season of the year.
Webster defines "Indian summei"
as. "a period of warm weather late
in' autumn, usually characterized
Iby a clear sky, and by "a hazy or
smoky appearance of the atmos
phere, especially near the horizon.
The name is derived probably from
the custom of the Indians of using
this time in preparation for winter
by laying iu stores of food."
