THERE is an old the­ory that as gnats dance in the win­ter, notably in Jan­uary and Fe­bru­ary, that it be­to­kens a good har­vest­time to fol­low. If there is any­thing in the prog­nos­ti­ca­tion (and I am not in­clined to ig­nore such al­to­gether, for it is the wis­dom of hun­dreds of years ago), then it is likely to come true, for since the end of Novem­ber the ‘danc­ing fairies’ have been very much in ev­i­dence. We are not wise to ig­nore al­to­gether the wis­dom of our fore­fa­thers, many of whom were more ob­ser­vant than our­selves.—senex
