A GRATEFUL ACKNOWLEDGEMENT.
The following paragraph appeared in the London "Daily Mirror," and was taken from a local we inserted about twelve months ago — AN AKAROA AMAZON. Hats off to ft New Zealand girl, Miss Bain, of Akaroti She has disci pated the notion that women are frightened of cows and shy of fence climbing, and incidentally the Red Cross Fund is £26 the richer for the deed. And also sbe took the starch out of Akaroa'd famou3 heifer. SOME FENCE JUMPING Tbi? animal, at the early nge of six months, was the deppnir of va owner, who declared that anyone who wou'd drive it to market single banded and without the aid of a dog might hive it. Miaa Bain tackled the jab — a three mile drive. Six times the animal jumped the roadside fence, and pix times was made to jump back again —The Rambler. [We this local last issup, but unfortunately the introduction was separated from the main portion of the article]
