MI8HAPS OF THE DESERTER. Defections from tho Brilith army and navy aro gradually decreasing in number from year to year, but tho percentages of deserters from both services aro still higher, eo at least a correspondent who nfiects special knowledge on tho subject savs. In uminer army nor navy is there so much zeal displayed nowadays in the capture and punishment of deserters as was formerly Iho nilo. Tho War Department has strongly hinted dunog recent years that it does not care much for tho apprehension of deserters for the oapture nncf punishment of men is burdensome and oxpensivo. Until recently any policeman, special officer, or civilian who capture! a deserter from tne ant got £1 blood money npon turning his man over to the military authorities, but tho reward is now withdrawn, thongh punishment for desertion is still in full foroa; tho army is deserters returned to iho ranks.

THE BAZAAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 7 April 1905

THE BAZAAR. The bazaar in aid of St. Gre gory's R.C. Church funds was opened on Tuesday afternoon, there being a fair number pre sent, notwithstanding the in clemencv of the weather. Father H ylaud presided, and briefly introduced Mr. Millard, M.L.A., and Mr, Chapman, M.H.R. He expressed the pleasure he felt at seeing those gentlemen present, but at the same time thought that their attendance at functions of that sort was a public duty, since the work of the church, in aid of whose funds the function was organised, was of a public character. Referring to the assertion that bazaars encour aged gambling, he said that those who took up that attitude could not be very widely in formed, for a difficulty was generally experienced in get ting people to attend a bazaar. The only seductive influence at such functions was the pre sence of the fair ladies who at tended the stalls. Mr. Millard, in declaring the bazaar open, said it gave him great pleasure to be present. A politician's duties we...

THE SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 7 April 1905

THE SHOW. Tuksday last — first show day — was a day of steadily-falling rain, from daylight to dark. As a consequence, the attend ance at the Show Ground was extremely limited. The com mittee reported a record list of entries, and exhibitors were generally in time with their exhibits. On the morning of Wednesday, the second day-, steady rain again fell, and in the afternoon there was a heavy downpour. The Show Ground was a mass of mud and slush, and the reporters had to wade in six inches of that kind of unpleasantness to secure de tails of awards in the cattle and sheep sections.

LOCAL NEWS. BuirffT Awtdnt. On Wednesday afternoon, a stranger drove along Ma quoid-street intent on leaving Queanbeyan for the town where he resides. Somehow or other he got off the middle of the road and drove his horse iip on the footbridee in front of Mr. Lodge's residence. At this spot the side-drain is fairly deep, and eastward from the footbridge there was a pool of water about three feet deep. The driver evidently mistook the water for roadway, and when the horse propped on the footbridge, he lashed him on, with the l'esult that the ani mal spraug for the footpath, and the front wheel of the buggy (a hooded concern) struck a verandah post, capsiz ing the vehicle, the hood being submerged, and the driver, wfio was thrown from his seat into the hood, also finding himself almost completely under water.
