Northern lights delight
The display of the Aurora Borealis witnessed in Strathearn on the evening of Sunday last was a remarkable and magnificent one, the like of which, perhaps, has not been seen for many years.
For several hours the northern sky presented a conspicuously luminous glow and shafts of light travelled rapidly across the heavens far into the southern sky.
At one point the sky in the north-east was of a bright crimson hue and seemed as if to reflect the light of a great fire.
The spectacle was a splendid one and, despite the cold evening, was witnessed by many people. Later in the evening a fierce gale swept over Strathearn and continued during most of the night.
Crieff Hydro is booked up for the New Year holidays. The number of visitors during that period is expected to total close on 400.
‘Jerusalem the Golden’ was the favourite hymn in many Strathearn churches on Sunday last. The sermons dealt principally with the surrender of Jerusalem to the British.
