I geta the pump long time after that. Now I get him out of the case but what is the u.uii Buu u or a pump witnout the nundle? Wot you call yourselfs a biz uess house! You not athat.

You send a the mo back dam quick, or the pump is not good to me. Yours feth fuly, Antonia Anthanitls.' Yes, there is more humour in life than most of us are aware of.

A Big Fish [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 23 March 1925

A Big Fish Some fishermen consider that the Murrumbidgee River is devoid of itsh, but their arguments would count for little when faced with the array of Murray cod which was on view in one of Wagga's lish shops on Wednesday. Fishes of all sizes were there, and, lying the full length of the window was a huge cod which turned the scales at /oibs. »ozs. This huge fish was very solid and bore marks of the old stager he must have been. A huge mouth v/liicli would easily swial low fish up to 201l-s in weight. It had a lump in the mouth acting as a ton gue which was as large as that of a bullock. The fins and tail were small as compared with the size of the body. The fishes were caught by a man named Warren in the Murrum bidgee River near Oura, a spinner be ing used to catch them. The big fish i was sold for £5, sp it represented a ' good haul.
