A Cock Crowing In The Night





This, too, was thought to foretell a death, but whose death, depended on

the direction of the bird's head whilst crowing. As soon as the crowing

was heard someone went to ascertain the position of the cock's head, and

when it was seen that his head was turned from their own house towards

someone else's abode, the dwellers in that house slept in peace,

believing that a neighbour, and not one of themselves, was about to die.

It was supposed, that to make the prognostication sure, the cock would

have to crow three times in succession before or about midnight, and in

the same direction.
