Once a year, Lord Wickhammersley lends the grounds of stately Twing Hall for the Twing Village School Treat. This year the Mother's Sack Race was the event drawing the most wagering interest from the local punters, due to an increasingly competitive field of mothers.
Mrs. Penworthy, the tobacconist's wife, was well-esteemed for her sack racing form in Worcester. Mrs. Oddbody, the vicar's housekeeper, was renowned for her speed. Mrs. Nehi was said to live on healthfoods, and Mrs. Quigley, the village gossip, was famous for her stamina and wind. Finally, Mrs. Mackerel, postmistress, was the returning "Champeen".
As the stakes grew higher, dirty work was afoot, and the week before the Friday event, attempts were made to nobble each one of the competitors. All of the bloomers were stolen from the clothesline of one lady, and a cat was introduced into the home of a woman known to be violently allergic to cats. An ordinarily teetotalling mother was led off on an elderberry wine drinking toot. One mother with a sweet tooth received a 5 lb. box of Divinity Fudge; also, an attempt to distract one contestant with a smooth talking gigolo was made. These dishonorable events took place at a rate of one per day, on the Sunday through Thursday (of course, I have not listed them in order).
Can you determine from the eight clues below how each mother's race was threatened, on what day, and how she finished in the great race?
