Death of Mr. Thomas B. Bennett.-Old   scholars of Mr. J. L. Young's 'Adelaide Educational Institution' and of St. Peter's College will regret to hear of the death of

their old teacher Mr. Thomas B. Bennett Mr. Bennett, who had reaohed the advanced age of about 86 years, lived for the greater part of his life at Stepney, but a few months ago he took up his residence with his son, Mr. W. O. Bennett, at Port Lincoln, where at 5 o'clock on Friday morning he died quietly and peacefully in his sleep. For a num- ber of years Mr. Bennett was one of the prin- cipal assistants at Mr. Young's school, where he taught bookkeeping, arithmetic geo-     graphy and other subjects. He was an exceedingly competent as well as a fair master,' and was always regarded with great affec- tion by his pupils, and that the friendly   relations he established with them were per- manent was shown on two or three occasions when substantial proof was given by old scholars of their feelings towards him. Mr. Bennett spent a few years in the latter part of his active life as a teacher at St. Peter's College. Two of Mr. Bennett's sons are   living, viz., Mr. C. Bennett and Mr.   W.O. Bennett. The latter is the     officer who represents the Government   in various departments at Port Lincoln.     Another son, Mr. J. W. O. Bennett, was in the Survey Department, and was murdered by natives in the Northern Territory in very tragic circumstances many years ago. Mr. Nathaniel Bennett, who was a well-known officer m the Lands Titles Depaitment, is also dead, and the only daughter died two or three years ago. Mr. Bennett's widow survives   him. The funeral will take place at the Port Lincoln Cemetery this afternoon. Spielers at the Show. —The 'light-   lingered gentry' have had a good time at the annual Show of the Royal Agricultural Society, having taken full advantage of the presence of people from the country. It is surprising how sensible men can be so easily taken in. The well-known purse trick has been the principal mode of operating. One instance has come to light in which £8 was paid for a purse containing (the buyer thought) twelve golden sovereigns. To his disgust he found on opening the purse six halfpennies.   Norwood W.C T.U.-On Thursday even ing, September 13, a social was held at the .Y.M.C.A., Beulah-road, Norwood.
