In hospital after breaking her hip


from Kaikoura Star: 24 MARCH 1924 Mrs R. Monk, of Conway, who is 86 years of age, had brought to mind on Saturday some of the experiences of the old pioneer days. Cars not being able to negotiate the Conway River, Mrs Monk secured a horse, mounted it straddle-wise, and rodeacross the river, in order to be present at the Trotting Club's meeting. She had not been on a horse for 24 years, and had never previously ridden a horse straddle-wise -womenfolk inclined to be being more modest in the olden times . Sheattended the races, and intended to have a few dances at the race ball, but some children who accompanied her prevailed upon her to attend the circus instead. Mrs Monk usually has exhibits of dairying at the Show, but, owing to unforeseencircumstances, she omitted to have entries sent forward this year. Her eyesight is excellent, and she is as lively as most women at 50.
