Original Poetry. SCADDEN'S ROAD. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Star — 11 August 1914
Original Poetry. SCADDEN'S ROAD. Scadden's road from Buffalo is simply a disgrace, For you could paddle a canoe at quite a Sdecent pace. Talk about the mud-holes in the cow yards often seen But the holes on Scadden's road would sink-a bullock team. I have travelled through them many - times, So know now what they are; But when of course there is a drought. You'll say I've stretched too far. But in-the winter, O ! dear me, Sif the Council only knew The slush and mud form quite a sea, That we have to go through. They would make some mighty change, And very soon, I know, Or Websters, Warrens, Scaddens too, Will buy a boat, and row.
