FOXES AND SUGAR MELONS. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 1 March 1912
FOXES AND SUGAR MELONS. Mr H. Parker, of Mogong, informed us a few days ago that he had discovered that foxes will eat sugar melons, and now attributes the lors of a large number of melons this season to Reynard. He had been trying to detect the thief for some time, and having an idea, as the result of seeing numerous tracks, that foxes may be the culprits, decided to poison a melon with strychnine. Result, next morning a dead fox was found alongside a partly eaten melon. Farmers who have been inclined to blame two-legged animals for the mysterious disappearance of melon? will be interested in Mr Parker's dis\x=req-\ covery.—Canowindra "Star." The'y were lovers, and the ring she wore on the third finger of her left hand he had purchased with his hard\x=req-\ earned savings when they had become engaged. Together they occupied a seat on the verandah, and even a caterpillar could not have existed in the space between them, so close together did they sit. "Let me kiss those flowing tear...
