QUEANBEYAN. &nbsp; &nbsp; [FROM 0UR CORRESPONDENT] As you doubtless are aware in Queanbeyan news generally flies pretty fast, and frequently increases in its travels. You can guess, the surprise that was felt here on Saturday at the marriiage announced in the Age of that date, as no one: seemed to, have known anything about it. It seems strange why any person shouild send such an atdvertisement to your &nbsp; columns, as it is untrue, and without any foundation whatever, and is very unpleasant to the parties whose names are thus brought before the public. In another column of your paper is an advertise ment inviting tenders for the erection of a Churcn on the Burra road.

It was sworn by Helen Hegarty, a girl living in the house, that after the death of the deceased the nurse told her (witness) she must swear she had never prepared any food for the deceased since the doctors had given instructions that the nurse only was to have anything to do with the food. Hegarty said she could not say this, as it would not be true, on which the nurse told her she must swear it, or she would " ruin her (the nurse's) character, and spoil the case." This evidence wa...
