Rushden Argus, 29th June 1917, transcribed by Kay Collins

Easton Maudit Young Lady Maimed at Rushden
An unfortunate accident happened to Miss Charlotte Patrick, of Easton Maudit, on Tuesday, while at work at Mr. C. W. Horrell’s factory, Rushden. She lodges in Wellingborough-road, and was working a Hercules levelling machine, when by some means her right hand was drawn into the working parts and badly crushed. Dr. Baker was sent for and ordered her removal to the Northampton Hospital. It was feared that her hand might have to be amputated, and it is reported that the operation has been successfully performed.

Milk Lower—One of the farmers has this week started retailing milk round Easton and Bozeat at 2d. per pint. Needless to say other vendors have had to reduce theirs to the same level.

Twenty-One—On Saturday afternoon a number of friends and relatives were invited to the schoolroom by Mr. and Mrs. S. Patrick to celebrate the twenty-first birthday of their only daughter, Miss Elsie Patrick. Tea was followed by a two-hours’ social, the evening then being given over to the young people for dancing, Mrs. West and a band supplying the music. A large number of useful and handsome gifts were received by Miss Patrick.
