Long Concealed. [Newspaper Article] — Adelong and Tumut Express and Tumbarumba Post — 10 April 1900

Long Concealed. About a month ago',at the Jennings   Sluicing Company's mine, ,near Grahamstown, a largo wooden block, about 2ft. 6in. in diameter, was un earthed in the paddock now being stripped by the dredge. The block was embedded 18 feet from the sur face. As ,there were punch marks on one end of the block, inquiries were made, and the late Mr. Robert Wiblin (who died a fortnight ago) said that the block originally bolonged to him, but 28 years ago, someone, for fun, tipped it off' his workshop 'verandah and it rolled down the street towards the creek. The monster flood which washed the town bridge came along, the block was swept down in the cur ent of raging waters, and it has been concealed for the past 28 years. The unearthing of the block shows us that in that poriod there has been an ac cumulation of 18 feet of alluvium.

From Koodoesland Drift. [Newspaper Article] — Adelong and Tumut Express and Tumbarumba Post — 10 April 1900

From Koodoesrand Drift. Trooper Luff has sent the following letter to his parents at Adelong Crossing, dated March 6, 1900: — ' Just a few lines to let you know I am well, and hoping to find you well also. We are having a very hard time of it since I last wrote to you about a fortnight ago. We have done some very heavy work, marching and fight ing, and living on almost nothing. We are given two biscuits and a quarter of a pound of flour and one feed of meat per day — just enough to keep one alive. We had a very heavy march on route for Kimberley. Be tween the sun and no water we were nearly all dead. We lost, about 300 horses. They were dropping dead all along the march, and we had some heavy shooting to contend against. You can hardly imagine the feeling of the people in Kimberley the day we marched in. they were nearly mad   with joy.' I can't explain much to you, as we are en route to Bloemfontein, but I must tell you we were out on Cossack Post when Cronje and 3900 ...

BY RIGHT OF LOVE. CHAPTER I.—CONTINUED. [Newspaper Article] — Adelong and Tumut Express and Tumbarumba Post — 10 April 1900

|# RIGHT OF LOVE. —CHAPTER I.— Continued. By a lucky coincidence the oil sup ply came to an end on the same day as that on which the overseer's clerk   learned that his superior officer had   decamped. Tony's letter was manly throughout. An older woman than Mona would have read, heartbreak in the bravely written words ; but though she pittied him more, if anything, than herself,   she fell in with his suggestion that the Atlantic should divide them until he had made a fortune equal to that which, he had lost through his own blind' folly. But social position was over for the Fortescues.   Sir Simon died of heart-failure al   most immediately after the arrival of   that fatal letter, and it was found that     he owed very nearly thirty thousand pounds. Lady Fortescue was in despair. She had no choice but to accept the home offered by one of her brothers, who had married into an epis...

Tumut as the Federal City. [Newspaper Article] — Adelong and Tumut Express and Tumbarumba Post — 10 April 1900

Tumut as the Federal City. The claims of Tumut to selection as the site for the Federal Capital are being strongly urged in these districts, and, we might say, with justifica- tion. When we consider the many advantages the stretch of country be- tween Tumut on the one side and the opposite point, near Adelong, of the area mapped out by the local com- mittee, has over other spots in the colony that lay similar claims to superiority of position and other re- quisite attributes, a great incentive must be given to continued advocacy of local interests. The site pointed out here to Commissioner Oliver forms the nearest approach to the ideal that it will be possible to get, possessing, as it does, almost the entire list of natural features embodied in the qualifications laid down for the Commissioner as a basis on which to arrive at his judgment. Its equi- distance from the two chief capi- tals, its adjacency to the main line of railway, its accessibility, its altitude, its equable climat...
