Doogans (a local) mill wheel was to go round three times (or three days and nights) in human blood. The miller was to have two thumbs. (a malformation of hand found in Doogan family)
The war was to begin between the scythe and hook i.e. between hay time and oat cutting time.
All the cream of the county was to be churned in the same churn.
