From the Lawrence Daily World for Feb. 3, 1911:

  • “A Wellington man, Jim King by name, plowed into an old cave a day or two ago while plowing up a sandy pasture, and discovered a cave of considerable dimensions with some human bones so old that they crumbled at the touch. One bone only was well enough preserved to be carried away, a human jaw bone with a full set of teeth perfectly preserved. With the bones was an old corn knife, some small cartridges and the remains of fire. The cave had many passages and tunnels, and is said to be large enough to have accommodated several families. The room was plastered with salt.”
  • “‘Kansas Laws Made Plain’ is the title to a neat little book of 100 pages by A. A. Godard, formerly Attorney General of Kansas, which is being presented by the Peoples State Bank to its friends and patrons. The book has been prepared especially for the use of farmers, mechanics and business men and contains portions of the law concerning the things in which they are most likely to be interested as well as a lot of legal forms.”
  • “Eight passengers with a combined weight of 1,112 pounds flew today in a monoplane over an aerodrome in France. This is a new record.”
