I have just found this site. As an avid Rainbow puzzler, I have read the threads with interest.
I have 6 still to solve, 19 and 94 of course, but I would welcome clues to no.42 Maids who get their employers tired at first fail to pay for the dishes, 5. 8. and no.11 ....it can be used to attack two men on board, 4. I have some ideas but they just don't seem right, and where on earth do I start with no.96?

Hi jake
I saw this answered by someone else,
Maids who get their employers tired at first fail to pay for the dishes, = welsh dressers.

tired, with "at" first=Attired (dress their employers)

welsh(on a bet) - fail to pay.
