A Crop Sign. The old Dutch farmers farmers in the Piedmont portion of this State believe that the weather on Ash Wednesday indicates whether or not they will have a good wheat crop that year. If that day is inclement the wheat orop will be short, but if it is a good day there will be a bountiful crop. If this be true we may expect an abundant crop of wheat this year, because yesterday (Ash Wednesday) was a delightful day.
