It’s going to be a hard winter the old timers say. The prognostication is based on general weather observation, and upon the woodman’s lore, which is concerned with the habits of the birds and animals and the appearance of the forests. Animals are getting their new growth of fur earlier this year than usual. This is the sign of an early and hard winter. Even the prosaic horse shows its bit of horse sense and is beginning to sprout unusually thick tufts of hair in preparation for cold weather of unusual severity.  Another sign is the sudden and early flight of night hawks toward the south. For over a week these birds have been flitting towards a warmer climate, some times in noticeably large numbers.  The flight of all birds southward will probably be early this fall, the wood lore avers.  And furthermore the hot summer with its lack of rain is taken as another sure indication that there will be much snow, much cold weather, and a long winter during the frigid months that are approaching.

In Millinery Mrs. Emery Bruley of Neillsville can please the most critical.
