COOMA ANNUAL RACES. SECOND DAY. [BY OUR SPECIAL REPORTER.] [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 28 February 1905
COOMA ANNUAL RACES. - ss.oojra »a*.. [1!V Ol R Sl'KCIAL RnroRTEH.] Tun attendance at the second day of the Cooina Annual Races was hardly as good as that of the first day of the meeting, the falling off being undoubtedly due tp the unfavorable weather conditions, the dust and wi nd making it anything but pleasant to be out of doors. Those who braved the uninviting conditions were however favored with an ex cellent day's sport, the racing throughout being qf a close and ex citing character. Taking the meet ing right through the public, was well catered for by the committee and officials, a prominent feature of lbe gathering being the punctuality observed in starting the different events, the visiting public thoroughly appreciating this innovation, as it anablcd thera to witness the termi nation of the racing, and still, allowed them time to catch the 1 train.

Passing notes. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 28 February 1905
| Passing Sloths. 1 i'y if 'oits.-s The Yass Tribune printed the following (a joke, apparently) — ' Socialism is boldly reach ing out to wrest the possessions . from the man whose toil and ? , energy have .built for him a v home in which to shelter his ''©la -age, apd' to offer at least a resting, place for his offspring. ' And several country papers took the statement seriously and republished it. The fund of knowledge that some news papers don't possess concerning economic science is truly re markable. # V All. terms are comparative. Once upon a time to be a' .. . . knight meant to cany some reputation for valor. To-day it mostly indicates tlie worn-out groveller at the footstool of gilded uiirighteousness. Once, to be a Reformer was deemed a noble thing in a man's life ; but to-day it denotes a political sundowner on the wide and crooked' road along which 'the Carruthers party wobbles to perdition.

Tourist. NAPLES. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 28 February 1905
Tourist. NAPLES. Tbe hapless foreigner is bullied, ( perhaw, nowhere as be— more often ' she'— is bullied I Iu Naples. The Camorra is one reason of it, and tbe inherent lost of illicit gains is I another. The Camorra is not so iniquitous a secret society as the Mafia of Sicily ; but it works in much tbo same way. Of old it was ' so association of criminals, 1 and had to 1 control and keep in tonch with ^ all the dangerous classes of the city.' Bnt it is now I merely an organised system of peculation, wbsreby those who belong to it are enabled i to rob those who do not, without proceeding tn 'actual violence. ^ 1 Tbo visitor is manifestly a very fit prey for the gentle rogues. Take the trip to Capri, , for example, which every ono maVes. An Italian pays five francs for his ticket; a foreigner ten francs. This is not tho work of tbe commonplace Camorra. It is by an arrangement of tariff on the part ol the atcamship company. Tho venom of dis honesty has got ho deeply impregnated in Nap...

CUNNINGLY DEVISED. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 28 February 1905
CUNNINGLY DEVISED. Tho marvels of Nature aro quite as ourious and interesting in plant as in animal life. Most flowcriug plants depend on bees and iafcota for their fertilization and they provide : awect things to especially attraot them for the purpose ; but thcro arc exceptions to this rule. Some plants of the orchid tribe, for in stance, on tbo o'her band, do not inquire such aid, and, in fact, have a strong objection | to being bothered by buzzing boea and flies, and resort to a cunning device to keep off or frighteutbem away. No bee will en'erK flower in which so other bee is already at work ; nnd, therefore, to protect tbo entrance, the lip of tho flower is enlarged so as to exactly re&etnme the I hiod-quartcrs of a bee (in the fly orchid it resembles a fly). To tho spider-orchid— another British species— it has ocourrcd to | give a moro trying ahick to the nerves of I troublesome insects, so it display* the like ness of u large spider.

A World Elsewhere. Tolstoi's son has had an audience with Hie Czar. He urged the summoning of an assembly representative of the nobles, clergy, burghers, and peasants. In reply, the Czar said a Constitution and represen tative government would embarrass the people. It was, therefore, his duty to staud sentry against such demand?. * * * General Kuropatkin has repulsed the Japanese from the south and south-east. He has occupied Dapindachan. The Siberian railway is Interrupted in four places.
