Search on to find First Mammoth of Spring

The race is on to find the first mammoth of spring after Count Geffrin generously offered a prize of one hundred shillings to the community in which it is born.   Despite communications with some of the higher villages still being difficult following last week’s unseasonably  heavy snowfall, it is hoped that there will soon be  a winner.   The birth of any mammoth must be verified by the local Justice of the Peace who will make all further arrangements.

In other news three children had a lucky escape after they became lost in heavy mist near Paysal, in the Northern Mountains.  They were returned to their homes by a mysterious woman on horseback whom the children described as a ‘kind lady in a thick red shawl’.  Not only were they kept warm and safe overnight, but the lady gave them each a handful of silver.   Their parents were reported to be overjoyed at their children’s safe return.
