During the night preceeding this New Year's day our latitude seemed to have shifted away up into the regions of Greenland's icy mountains. On that happy (?) New Year's morn this boy housed and fed his flock, then proceeded to pass, unanimously, a "New Year's" resolution to remain at home from school, when his good mother gave the information that sister and cousin had left our dinner for me to take. Then a counter resolution was unanimously carried to recind the former action and this boy would answeij to roll call as usual. There was a pathway along the fences across the Overman farms to school. This boy prepared to brave the storm and snow. When about half way he got lodged into a snow drift.

The -writer's reminiscent mind was awakened by the mention of the "Cold New Year's," by Wm. S. Elliott, a while ago in The News. As a farmer boy living then on the hill on South Adams street, not in the city of Marion as it now is, but on the farm, just entering my 'teens," my experience as a shepard boy on this day was very impressive. I recall very distinctly the changing renditions of the airial elements the evening! preceeding the dawning of the New Year. It was warm and rainy, the evening twilight darkened into a dense fog. My detailed duty was to feed and care for the sheep and calves nigjit and morning. And as a closing activity for the day I was usually assigned the pleasurable (?) duty of "toting" in the wood. Now, what I am about to say, of course, does not apply to the boys of this present day. The evening being unusually mild and warm this boy philosophised that over much toting in of wood was not necessary. By the time he felt confident that he would pass on arithmetic and English credi-blv the next day, he was shaking zee occupied the pulpit in his place.
