Digging for Pirates' Treasures. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 19 May 1877

; Digging for Pirates' Treasures. COUNTRY School Superintendent Saxton returned from San Juan Capistrano yesterday. Ho found the people of. that flourishing burg in a high state of excitement, and the population had turned out . almost en masse in search of. treasure trove. It appears that there has been a tradition for a long time in San Juan that a pirate vessel,- at some remote . time, ' had landed in the little cove and debarked a large amount of treasure, variously .estimated at from three to ten millions of .dollars. The pirates aro supposed to have buried the "swag"-the spoils, doubtless, «of many a sunken galleon-some four or five miles from San Juan. The story has been ?repeated a little oftener than usual lately, and, its a consequence, a search for the treasure legan the other day. Pick and shovel. wore ¡brought into, requisition, and the lands in the . ?neighbourhood... of San Juan, which, had :àhy£liing like a hiding place look about them, began to show as though as a d...

Growth of the Earth. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 19 May 1877

Growth of the Earth. IT is startling news, exclaims the ' Sussex Daily News,' which . Mr. Proctor has just communicated to us. The earth hos not done growing yet, though it is old enough to have reached its time of stagnation. It feeds on meteors, and these must, of-course, at last increase its bulk. Fe%v people have imagined that the earth is eating every day, and that by the end ofijjie ye<tr it has taken no less than 400,000,000 ¿neteors into its constitu tion. Yet Mr. Proctor answers for this. He says that the ^shooting stars are simply meteoric stones falling to the earth, and that they are fulling at the rate of moi-e than » million a day. But there'ííre small signs of obesity in our globe as yet, because tnese 400 millions a year would heed to go on tailing for millions of years before another foot can be added to the earth's diameter. By that time it is probable that the eai'th will have come into collision with ono of those blazing suns which now appear periodica...
