ROMAN CATHOLIC BAZAAR. The basaar and iporta held on the 30th ult. and. 1st inst. was a signal success from every stand point. When it was decided to hold the function to liquidate the debt on St. Joseph's Church, Cressy, the adherents of the church set to work strenuously to make the bazaar a success, and they were successful to a satis factory degree. A strong com mittee was formed, with Messrs J. B. Willis and W. J. Bown as hon. secretaries. The major part of the work in affairs of this kind falls on the ladies, and those who took part in it did not fail in their duty. The auccesB of the bazaar was uppermost in their mind, and they faithfully and strenuously carried out the part of the programme allotted them. From the beginning until the finish of the movement they had no idle moments. Mrs Farrell, of Weering, deserves a special word of praise for the active part she took. She not only did her fair share of canvassing, but arranged Bome enjoyable euchre parties and dancing at he...
