As Mrs. Madden was coming from Heronstown to her home she carried a hatch of eggs. Twilight fell as she went into the fields. She stepped on a stray sod and went round and round the field. She thought the ditches were mountains and that she had not left the field, but she found herself about four miles from home at Joe Halton's of Newtown.
