Maybe it is something worse from the Ozarks or the Cumberland mountains. You can give odds that it will be something that will the great composers turn over in their graves till their rotations hum like the growl of an awakening volcano. * » • The caterwauling only ceases now and then for a little banditry that will take hard-earned money away from a gullible citizenry.
