An Object Lesson for Children. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 4 July 1885

An Object Lesson for Children. What is this ? Is it a ship ? No, it is not a ship, but it will make you just as sick. It is a steamer. Why is the man leaning over the side? He is sad. Is lie thinking of his home and friends? No. He was down at dinner, and he suddenly remembered the poor fish, who had no dinner; so he came up to feed theoi Is not the man kind ? Perhaps. It is reported that missionaries a*g trying to intro duce the Bible in China. This will be a higher novelty than the Bible in calf, Morocco or Russian leather. # .<• # John Donaldson, m.L.A. for the Warrego, has been starring it among his Thargomindah constituents, and has consolidated his popularity there. *He addressed ja public meeting in the Bulloo Divisional Board Hal), Thargomindah, on Tuesday, June 9th, and received an enthusiastic hearing.

Brisbane School of Arts. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 4 July 1885

Brisbane School of Arts. More anent the Brisbane School of Arts. A corre spondent, who is a member of the Brisbane School of Arts, and who has evidently been impressed with the article I published in Figaeo, a couple of weeks since, respecting the confusion existent in that institution in connection with its library, growls out the following additional grievances:— The books in the greatest demand at the School of Arts, and which are generally the works of really firet-class writers, are always in the worst condition. Some of them are so filthy with dirt and abuse that many of the passages are indecipherable. The scents emanating from some of these precious volumes are of the knock-you-down degree, and have been face tiously styled, by a few choice spirits, ff The School of Arts Bouquet." There has (he continues) always been one feature of the School of Arts library even more puzzling to an ordinary intelligent mind than the use of the Com mittee, or the state of |the bookshelves ; ...

I've got the couplet off by heart, But, tisn't true, say I j For it, though true, perhaps, in part, To lawyers won't apply. For I would have you learn and know.

Pugilism. Two pugilistic youths in—We are Constrained to simply say, " out west," man; Determined they would meet in P.R., And there decide who was the best man. No glove affair—which oft belies fight j But, with bare knuckles, in a prize fight. The match was more for fistic pride Than nurtured by a mutual hate ; The wager was £1 a side, And June the 19th was the date. One in Post Office makes his mark, The other is a lawyer's clerk. They were to vie in fistic shock With smile and not with tempers shirty j Be on the ground at 8 o'clock, And toe the scratch at just 8.30. To see the struggle to atf end They had invited many a friend. The morning dawned with sunny clearance, That augured well for trying tussles; The P.Oi man put in appearance, With clean-shaved face and good hard muscles. The lawyer's clerk did not come there on, But stayed at home and kept his hair on.

The Ways of Labour Agents. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 4 July 1885

, . ... . • The Ways of Labour Agents. The ways of many Labor Agents are devious. The typical labor agent is generally a great hulking fellow, too lazy to toil for a, manly living, and who battens on fees extorted from poverty-stricken wretches who are out of work, and who often have not a pound sterling to call their own. The public has no con ception of the trickery and swindling habitually practised by many Labor Agents. Let me give in-, stances drawn from cases which have come under my own personal observation. ^ John Lackpenny is out of work. He is willing to ! take anything. He passes a Labor Agency office and sees that a man is. wanted for work which-he believes | that he can perform satisfactorily. Or, perchance, he has seen the announcement that such a man is I wanted, advertised in a newspaper, with a given j address that directs him to this Labor Agency office. He enters and interviews the fat, well-nourished Labor Agent. "Ah !" replies the latter; "you want to try and ge...

"Ne sutor ultra crepidam." [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 4 July 1885

• • ■ •—> "Ne sutor ultra crepidam." Thus a correspondent:—I have read with much interest, from time to time, your amusing anecdotes respecting the eccentricities of magistrates in the country parts of Queensland; arid your last tale of that kind brings a quaint recollection to mind. There is an old identity in Queensland, named Michael Haynes, Barrister-at-Law." He always got (and gets) his full title, because of the fact that he never was known to sign his name to a document (not even a cheque) without appending his title in full. Well, on one occasion, Michael Haynes, Bar rister-at-Law, was engaged as lawyer in a case being heard before two. Justices of the Peace, one of whom was a medico and the other a butcher. Michael had no luck that day. The J.P. medico and the J.P. butcher disagreed with his law alto gether, and told him so. Then Michael arose in his "wrath, and. spako:— "May it please your "Worships: You are both gentlemen following high and honorable callings which req...

Uncle Jack and Other Stories, [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 4 July 1885

Uncle Jack and Other Stories, J3y Walter Besant. There are few English, writers living who can tell a story so charmingly as "Walter Besant. His world is, perhaps, a little "impossible," but it is very delightful, and in his books one likes " all sorts and conditions of men." It is only now and then that he makes one hate even his villains. His latest volume is very pleasant. It is full of humour that reminds one now and again of Dickens, and there is at least one story that has a touch of the pathos of Dickens. It is called "Julia." Julia's parents are dead, and she lives with and by her earnings supports, Jier grand-parents, a hideous old couple, who spend nearly all the girl gets, on drink. As to Julia when we first see her, she is simply, but shabbily, dressed in a black cloth jacket and a black stuff dress. " Her hat was ornamented with a red eather, and sife wore a pair of Swedish gloves— nee a light drab, but now gone brown, or even black, in the fingers. If you were to meet ...

Grim Humonr. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 4 July 1885

Grim Humonr. j The following race for life is taken from a sport ing contemporary, and is certainly unique in its way:— If one could see a million babies start on a journey (all scratch the mark, of course), and1 could follow them through life, this is about what he would see. Nearly 150,000 of them drop out of the ranks by the end x>f the first year,' while twelve months later the numbers would be further thinned by the deduction of 53,000 more; 28,000 would follow at the pnd of the thirteenth year. They would throw up. the sponge, by Ji^fos.and threes until the end of the forty-fifth yea*, "when it'would be'"found that in the intervening period something like 500,000 had left the track. Sixty years would see 370,000 grey-headed - men still cheerfuily"pegging away. At the end of eighty years the competitors in this great ' go-as-you please' would number 97,000, but they would be getting more shaky and 'dotty' each lap. At the. end of ninety-five seasons 223 would only be left in...

5 * Football. By "VTakrigal, The Rovers met the Excelsiors for the ȣrst time this season, last Saturday, at the Albert Spprts Ground, both sides being fairly represented. The match resulted in a draw in the Blues' favor, by 1 goal and 7 behinds to 1 goal and 4 behinds. The last half of the game was very fasfc, mdeed, much more so than has been seen in any o&er match of this season, the Excelsior backs, Perkins, Joe Welsby, and Marchant, being called upon repeatedly to defend their goal from their opponents followers and forwards; Lackey, M/Master, Crookbain (2),Diggles, Silvester, and A.
