"A detachment of "Plough Jacks", consisting of 13 farmer's men and boys, dressed in the usual fantastic costume, invaded the streets of Barton on Monday and went through their time-honoured antics. There is no objection to the amusements as such, but the frequent adjournment to the public-houses is a material draw-back."
