THE CEDARTOWN RECORD says, "that a singular phenomenon was lately witnessed by many persons in different parts of Polk county. About four o'clock in the afternoon, oak, sycamore, willow and beach leaves, together with twigs and wild peas, were seen to come down from the sky above and settle upon the ground. On looking up the air seemed to be full of leaves as far as the eye could see. The inference is that they were twisted by a cyclone and carried so high that they were just reaching terra firma again. (The Daily Constitution, Atlanta, GA, July 4, 1878)
