FALL OF FRUIT.

On Tuesday last, a Barming fruit van was being conveyed through Southborough, and when near the "Imperial Hotel" one of the wheels came to pieces, and the fruit—raspberries and red currants—was scattered in all directions. Considerable labour was expended in gathering it together, but notwithstanding the vigilant exertions of those in charge, the juveniles, who speedily congregated feasted to their heart's content.

 

From the Kent and Sussex Courier, 5 June 1874.

Tonbridge Petty sessions. Transfer Of Licence.

The licence of the "Imperial Hotel," Southborough, was transferred from Mr. Thomas Waller to Mr. Henry C. Gould.

Alleged Case of Refusing to Leave a Public House.

James Tuchner and John Tuchner were summoned for being drunk and quarrelsome, and refusing to leave the "Imperial Hotel" when requested to do so by Mr. Gould, the proprietor.

Mr. Warner, solicitor, defended.

The Bench did not consider the evidence strong enough to warrant a conviction, and dismissed the case.
