It's cold outside. Old timers are
talking that Duplin is experiencing
the coldest weather over a long per
iod of time that has been felt here
since way back In the 1890's. Three
years ago we had some cold snaps
but they didn't last long. Last win
ter many thought they were living
in the suburbs of Florida.
Little snow has been seen so far
this fall and winter but folks are
saying we may look for some good
white blankets before the winter is
over. Thanksgiving brought a light
snow but it didn't stick. Last Fri
day night snow fell in several spots
over the county as it did early on
' Tuesday morning found a clear
sky with the thermometer in Ke
nansvUle reaching a low of 14 de-
I grees at six o'clock. Few frozen
i cars have been seen on the roads
as auto owners nave taken ade
Farmers are saying the cold wea-
ther is good for the land and will
aid In producing: better crops in
1961. We have heard several say
they had not planned to plant any
cotton next year but believed now
tbey wiU since the boll weevil dam
age may be lighter due to the cold
weather insects should be fewer
next year which will be a great
welcome In Duplin, It seems for
the past few years we have had
more than our share and snakes
have been more plentiful. Unless
they have bored mighty deep into
the ground a large number of them
wUl not come out this spring.
Doing O. K.
Slim Matthis of Warsaw is said to
be getting along O. K. since his re
ported attempt to commit suicide
about a week ago. It was said SUm
was standing in his bed and attempt
ed to shoot himself through the
neck with a shot-gun. He suffered a
minor skin wound.
