JEWELS PAWNED [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 7 March 1914

JEWELS PAWNED Messrs Hancocks and Company, jewellers, sued Messrs J R. Atten bcrough and Company Ltd., pawn brokers and jewellers, to recover a necklace, which had been pawned, or, alternatively, damages for its deten tion, before the Lord Chief Justice and a special Jury (says "The Daily Mail," November 25). Mr Shearman, K.C., in opening, stated that not a word could be said against the defendants. The ques tion in the case was who should suffer loss in consequence of the sudden de parture under dramatic circumstances of a man who had obtained jewellery which he had not paid for and had then pawned? Tho man in question, Mr Lance Campbell, had been connected witii some South American company, said counsel. He bought from the plain tiffs and paid for £3000 or £4000 worth of jewellery. He lived in Mount street, Mayfair, and owned a motor car. Up to the time he disappeared the plaintiffs had not the smallest rea son to doubt his honesty. In July, 1912, Mr Campbell saw the rosy pearls n...

Stonyford. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 7 March 1914

Stonyford. Just recently a grass fire started in Mr. Mallinson's paddock, near the railway station, and burnt about 90 acres. Next day it broke out again, and got into Mr. James McKenzie's property, burning 100 acres. Mr. McKenzie had some difficulty in saving his stack. The cause of the fire is a mystery. The cool change that arrived here last week was very welcome. The Stony Rises, after getting warmed up with a heat wave, take a good bit of cooling, as the stony surface retains the heat. A fall of rain is badly needed for domestic purposes, as most of the tanks are nearly run out. Poisoning rabbits is in full swing. The most successful poison used has been phosphorus and pollard.

PANAMA CANAL [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 7 March 1914

PANAMA CANAL Without pomp or inaugural cere- mony, and unknown to anybody ex- cept those persons directly concerned, the Panama Canal has been navi- gated from the Atlantic to the Paci- fic for the first time by a steamer under its own power (says the New York correspondent of the "Daily Telegraph" on January 9). The vessel thus honored is the old French ship Alexandre Lavalley, built in 1884. She is a steamer of 1200 tons, has a single screw and funnel, and is equipped with three big cranes. The Alexandre Lavalley started her trip from the Atlantic entrance early in December, and, after making various stops on the way, to help to clear away small landslides, pro- ceeded through the Pedro Miguel and Miraflores locks to the Pacific, thus making the first trans-isthmian voyage. Although May had been set as the month for the official opening of the canal, it is not believed here that the waterway will be available for general commercial use by ships of large draught until several month...

SISTER'S GOOD NEWS £23,000 FOR FAMILY. Seeing from an advertisement that information was wanted of her family   by a firm of solicitors at Worcester   (says "The Daily Mail"). Mrs Turner,   of Blackpool, communicated with   them and found that a great-aunt   died twenty-five years ago at Wor- cester, leaving her fortune to her next- of-kin.

The fortune, which was originally £13,000, now amounts, with accumulated interest, to £23,000.
