reporter received yesterday morning
when ho queried "Pro?." V. H. lllcka,
the well known weather prognosti
cator of Anderson county, as to what
was in store for this section of the
.sphere in thc realm of meteorology.
Prof. Hicks, who now makes his
homo vj'mo five mites northweast of
the city, near the Greenville road, was
a visitor in tho city yesterday for thc
HrKt tittie in several weeks. Natural
ly, whenever he was seen and known
lie was asked sotuo question concern
ing the weather. Prof. Hick j seems
to know a great deal about the stars
and thc moon and planets and con
stellations of the universe, jr rather
there were none about him yesterday
who appeared to know that the pro
fessor didn't know what be was trik
ing about. Prof. Hicks has been a
student of matters pertaining to the
weather for several decades, and.
whether or not he knows, what ho is
talking about, his forecasts ''hit tho
mark" about as often as thc prognosti
cator handed out by the fellows who
dope it all out hy science and mechani
Prof. Hicks was very firm In his
opinion that tiicre would bc a change
in thc weather hy Monday or Tues
day, and possibly earlier. It was too
delightfully warm, he stated, for con
ditions to remain as they were. The
rain that he predicts for Monday or
Tuesday will bu rather coldrhc stated.
Continuing bia prophecy, the professor
stated that this section would see
something rathor interesting in the
snow Uno -.bout thc middle of
February. "Wc arc due to have, two
rather generous mows about7 the
middle of the coming month/' he said,
"and lota of sleet, ice, snow and
freezing weather in the latter part of
February and March." The professor
stated that the spring will bc late, aa
