  1. 25 If a cat puts its paw behind its ear - it will rain
    26 When ditches a& dykes smell_
    27 When walls are damp_
    28 When the Pimpernell turns dark_
    29 When chairs & tables crack
    30 When the distant hills appear nigh.
    31 When the swine are restless
    32 When flies disturb kine
    33 When there is sheet lightning
    34 When smoke comes down chimney
    35. When hens pick their feathers
