SMOKE IN THE WATER- John Miller lived down along the Laurens-Wheeler line. Mr. Miller awoke one February night to discover a pine tree burning in his yard. Miller went out in a light rain to inspect the tree. After several days the stump of the tree burned out. Miller thought nothing else about the matter supposing that the tree had been struck by lightning. After awhile the strangest thing began to happen. Every time it rained smoke began to rise from the hole. Sometimes on cloudy days when no rain was falling the fire would begin to burn. Can you solve this mystery? Dublin Post, June 28, 1882., p. 3.
