    Norias,Texas 1915.

    Should this maybe be Las Noticias ?

    The Fulton County news. (McConnellsburg, Pa.), 26 Aug. 1915.

    Las Noticias = Spanish for News.

    With the Space between N & o the Print looks Like the Type Setter in the Printing office screwed up

    only Hit I got : was this in Rosenberg Texas & the fact it mentions Fort Bend made me think Perhaps
    Las Noticias is now a Ghost town, Or swallowed up by Fort Bend Or another city in Texas

    I tried following the Attachments and got this message: Invalid Attachment specified. If you followed a valid link, please notify the administrator.

    I've looked through the WPA Texas Guide, the Texas Gazetteer, the Handbook of Texas, 1001 Texas Place Names and Ghost Towns of Texas Vol. 1 with no luck. Of course tried an internet search with no results.

    I did find this through the Southwestern Historical Quarterly site, In 1926 Eduardo Idar began publishing another newspaper, Las Noticias, which had a circulation of 2,000 and was one of the best Spanish-language newspapers in Texas.

    if your talking about my picture attachments in post #3 they worked for Me
    just by looking at the screen.

    I just Doubled them to see if that Helps.

    I also tried finding Las Noticias mentioned in other articles, Unfortunately it brings up thousands of hits
    because of its Spanish meaning

    But couldn't find it searching Las Noticias, Tx. or Las Noticias, Texas.

    and 0 on
    Las Nocias

    but I couldn't find this Pic using the search either, so the newspaper search is not fool proof either.

    Though it does makes me wonder if the Typesetter got the town name completely wrong.

    Thanks for getting the images to show.

    You're probably right about the misspelling of the name, or the completely wrong name. Do you think they drank much back then?

    I tried looking up any similar names with no luck...
