Chop Jim Crow

This is not from the Campbelltown area but I thought it was worth sharing. The article appeared in the Campbelltown Herald of November 18, 1903.

At Cobar the other day, J. Farrell, six years of age, was playing with a doll, when another boy named Jim Crow tried to chop off the doll's legs, but instead chopped two of Farrell's fingers nearly off.

Imagine poor Farrell having to explain that for the rest of his life.
