Aqua Pura. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 21 February 1905

Aqu Para. When it was recorded that a fearfully dead cat had been dragged from the weir, river-water drinkers fell something suspiciously like sea sickness creeping over them. When it was more recently announced that a bloated pig, in a most advanced stage of decomposition, was bobbing about on the weir's surface like a harlxsr buoy, there were indications of a general revolt in favor of some- j th ing stronger than water— although j people who could want anything stronger than the water of our blessed weir are not understandable | at all. Now, it becomes our pleasing duty to chronicle . the advent of a j recently deceased dog, whose rapidly I decaying carcase lends its savory influence to the further flavoring of j the town's water supply.

At noon on Thursday, the muni cipal barometer stood at ' Set Fair,' but after- the unavoid able postponement of the maj'oral election it rapidly rose, until at- four o'clock ou Friday afternoon, it pointed to ' Stormy.' Sure enough, the threatened storm broke, and rhetoric thunder and lightning shook the chamber, only a few of the civic oracles got wet and they were due for a wetting anyhow. The odds are five to four 011 another storm shortly now that the M-eatlier has broken, and the new mayor happens to be the old. As they say in mining, you never know what you may strike if you go deep enough, and the under ground engineers anticipate de velopments. Watch this space ! Charity covers a multitude of sins,and the more sins you have to cover the more charitable you should be. Some rich men only find out how philanthropic they are when the bugle sounds the as...
