According to the old timers when the Katydids and jar flies start their mournful sounds about this time of year, you can expect an early fall. Regardless it will be early enough providing you haven’t made preparations for your coal or wood for the coming winter. The old timers tell me that when these sounds appear it is high time for all to get busy in regard to making ready for the coming winter.
You fellows that are sitting on the court house square whittling on those cedar poles that you carry in your hip pocket, I dare say that those cedar shavings will carry you through a long winter. I had about forgotten that we are living in a modern age and most of you either have a gas or electric furnace to take care of your needs. 1959
