100 Years Ago

* March came in as quietly as a summer morning, but the sun shone upon as beautiful a winter scene as has ever been witnessed in this locality. The face of nature was encased in ice and every twig and shrub and all other stationary objects in the open air sparkled and scintillated in the rays of the orb of day. It was weird and witching and lasted most of the day and even into the light of the full moon.
