ROBBERS' CAVERNS. [Newspaper Article] — The Tamworth Daily Observer — 11 January 1911
ROBBERS' CAVERNS. The recent discovery of immense caverns just north of San Antonio, not far from the San Antonio-Austin turnpike, in Texas, U.S.A., revives the thrilling stories of early buccaneers and highway robbers who in pioneer days operated in this country. These caverns are supposed to be united by underground passages and are being ex- plored. Entrances, though narrow and concealed, lead back to the great caverns cathedral like in size and hung with beau- tiful stalactites. The exploration of these caverns is rather dangerous and is proceed- ing with a great deal of caution. It ap- pears, however, that they reach back miles in extent. As this is a limestone country similar to that of Mammoth Cave, Ken- tucky, it seems that there will be some re- markable underground discoveries'. Wild stories are floating around the coun- try-side to the effect that there is a cham- ber in one of these caverns fitted with gold and other treasure accumulated by the old robbers. The deathbed ...

LOVE AND BALANCE=SHEET. £150 Damages ;for a Broken Promise. The jury at the Birmingham Assizes awarded £liiO damages to Alice Emmeline Ross in her action for breach of promise of marriage against Francis Henry Lees. The parties lived at Handsworth. The case, as partly reported, disclosed an enormous num ber of love-letters. Lees himself was the only witness called for the defence. He admitted the, promise. He asked lier to marry him in the usual orthodox way. Then, in reference to busi ness disagreements between his father and hers, she grew-cool. He asked heft' to renew her old confidence in him. She ansvyered, •'I really cannot unless you treat my father as you ought." They both were rather fond of an argument. (Laughter.) Did you tell Miss Ross you hoped to many her in May last year?—That de pended upon a balance-sheet to.he got out in March. (Laughter.) ' You wrote to her from Llandudno: "I think the air will blow all the cobwebs from my heart, and you will find me most optimist...
IN NEW CALEDONIA. A POLYGENOUS POPULATION. VAST MINING RESOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — The Tamworth Daily Observer — 11 January 1911
IN NEW CALEDONIA, A POLYGENOUS POPULATION. VAST JIIfCIXG RESOURCES. The poulatinn of Now Caledonia must surely be about the most polygenous in the world. Numbering but ".2,000 in all, it in cludes whites and natives, missionaries and heathens, and convicts and Quasi-convicts of all descriptions. Some idea of the admix ture of the human species was conveyed to a New Zealand contemporary by Mr. T. Manning, British Vice-Consul on the island, who recently visited Auckland. New Caledonia was 'for many voars used by France as a convict station, and although no convicts are now sent there, a con siderable number of those transported for life still remain. Some of these, for of fences committed on the island, have since their arrival received,terras of five or ten years on top of their life sentences, though how justice is going to run her full course in those cases is not quite clear. There is on Jlio island an even more undesirable 1 class—the incorrigible—men who have been convicted of a...

The High Commissioner fox* Australia was handling a congenial subject when l\e &lt;Je livereif a lecture at Birmingham last month ou "Australia: Resources, Trade, and Possi bilities."

Six bees sat on either side of Dora—she supposed these must bo the jury, and the one that had commanded Dora to be brought hither, stood by the side of the Queen.
