    Having had the dubious joy of having to sort through a collection of 1500 bound newspapers from 1740s onwards, I can guarantee that the stories in them are one of things that stop you from going bonkers whilst doing so. I think my favourite was the story of a monkey that burnt down a town in Alabama - yes it was in a local paper to Bath, but you can see why it made international news!

    Eeek Barnzzz, poor Albert! Inconsiderate neighbours, those fishgutting people to say the least. I do wonder how it was sorted out in the end.

    Zam Buk is still available - you can get it from Amazon and it's had some great reviews! None rhapsodising about its effect on piles though

    Today's local newspapers are still keeping up the good work with arcane snippets of news... future historians may conclude that not a lot went on in Ringwood back in the early C21: https://www.salisburyjournal.co.uk/ne..._injures_nose/
