Then, too, frost during the light of the moon is not supposed to bite as hard. As for the new moon, it is far to the south and standing on its end. The sign is warm and wet. J. O. Kellison, of Boggs Run, brought in branches of hickory and white walnut, with clusters of nuts like bunches of grapes. He reports also a bumper crop of red oak acorns, but the acorns on the white and chestnut oaks fell off in the long dry spell. For a second year, Mr. Kellison reports an extremely heavy seed crop on the sugar maple. One day last week, Mr. Kellison saw three red foxes in his fields. He laid them out with his .22 gun. He says the foxes are being starved out of the big woods, to come into the fields, and around houses for some- thing to eat. One of Mr. Kellison's neigh- bors has been losing poultry to varments by wholesale. The other day, a big varment came right up to the house. It was gray in color and the size of a big dog; its face like that of a German police dog; long tail, legs and feet like those of a cat. The neighbor went for his gun, but by the time he leveled down, the range was a bit too great for small shot. However, he did bring blood. They put the var- ment down as a coyote.
