VARIETY ENTERTAINMENT [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 10 February 1905
VARIETY ENTERTAINMENT On Wednesday evening last, a variety entertainment was given by the Young Men's Club in the Pro testant Hall, which was fairly well filled, and everything passed off very satisfactorily. The function was organised by the club to raise funds to help them through the coming year. Tbe programme which, with one or two exceptions, was entirely contributed by mem bers of the club, showed that the club (which, we understand, has only been a few months in existence) is making rapid progress, from a musical point of view at any rate.

Salmagundi [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 10 February 1905
I Salmagundi fjr«0t-r«00ir-00 By ? Collovru One of the most useful mem bers of society is tbe reporter, especially the one who can frame in grammatical language the jerkily-expressed opinions of a speaker without crediting him with opinions which he does not hold or express. Novice speakers — and others too — must at times feel proud of themselves when they, see their orations in cold black plant, robbed of all the whirl in the head, lump in the throat, and general shake, also nicely corrected, shaped, and with an occasional long word suitable to the occasion thrown in. Mast be puzzling sometimes to find you have been using words that you had no idea you possessed in your vocabulary. * * * Writer was present at the Council Chambers on Tuesday, heard the mumble-jumble of the candidates, and could come to no other decision than that the majority of them were wofully uninformed of muni cipal matters or modest adepts at hiding their lights under a bushel.

A party of Bungeudore shootists, in tent upon securing a good bag of game in tbe vicinity of one of the creeks a few miles out of town, decided to camp for the night in an empty house which has the reputation of being haunted. Two humourists of the crowd, resolving to give their companion! a startling exper ience, stole away trom the main body, in order to conceal themselves in the bouse and personate ghosts. It unfortunately happened that the covering of an old dry well was open when the adventurers ar rived, and in tbe darkness one of them fell in, and clutching his companion dragged him down too. When the other members of tbe party arrived, they were horrified on hearing blood-curdling groan ings and lamentations, and fled. Muster ing up courage, by-and-byesomeof them returned with lights, and found their two comrades in tbe old well, from which the; were unable to extricate themselves, and one of them, having bru...

THE MUNICIPAL BALLOT. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 10 February 1905
THE MUNICIPAL BALLOT. To-morrow the ballot will decide as to -which three of the six candidates for municipal honors shall be entrusted with a voice in the Government of th:'s municipality. It is true, there are in the present contest no very great issues at stake, other than that the conflict seems to lie between what might be termed the conserva tive and democratic forces, the .former being represented by Messrs. Atkinson, Moore, and Harrison, and the latter by Messrs. Downey, Woodger, and Woodward. In Mr. Moore's case there are disadvantages connected with the distance at which he resides from the town -(as emphasised in another col umn by Cuticura ) which should render his election an impossible matter anyhow ;*but .apart from that fact, surely in a self-governing community there should be but one answer through the ballot-box when the electors are asked to choose between the representatives of progress and conservatism. That answer the voters are urged to solidly record tomor r...
