Savannah, Ga„ News: A colonisa

ten to fifteen acres to the family,where
they will take up the cultivation of

Signs of a Hard Winter.

rum: Our farmer Forum readers may
be interested in this prognostication:
That the present winter Is going to be
the hardest one for the past twenty
years, there is an abundance of signs
to show, and among them it may be
mentioned that: The corn husks are
a foot and a half thick, and all the
stalks lean to the west. The geese,
ducks and chickens are growing a
coat of fur under their feathers, and
are rubbing borax on their feet to
harden them up. All the one-eyed
owls are leaving the country, and the
bob-tailed squirrels have laid up a
stock of sweet potatoes, as well as
nuts for provisions. The farmer who
has taken the trouble to investigate'
has found that all the toadstools on
the old logs have wrinkles in them.s.
The last time that this happened we
had winter weather that froze thei
handles off plows. Rabbits are sit
ting around with a huinped-up look
to them and field mice have wrlnklesJ
in their tails. If this means any-'
thing it means twenty degrees below
zero before tomorrow morning. Toi*

Lake put up a hard" fight In this
case and the trial of the case lasted
three days. The crime upon which he
was convicted, dates back to several

at the men.
Lake, mnie on the stand, stated that
he thought the two men were attempt

on rebuttal testified that Lake told
him during the afternoon when he was
at the house, that in the event the
front door was locked, he should come
to the rear of the house, where the
door would be open.
