Alarming Epidemic at Cunnamulla. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 26 September 1885

Alarming Epidemic at Gnnnamiilla. An alarming epidemic has broken out amongst the residents of Cunnamulla and surrounding dis tricts, and the reports respecting it are of a very serious character. A correspondent assures me that people there "are dying like rotten sheep." My correspondent does not describe to me the symptoms of the malady, but lie says that the residents there call it "ThePleuro." There is one medical practitioner there—-Dr. De Leon. What name be gives the disease, my correspondent does not know, but it would appear that Dr. De Leon cannot cure it, for (adds my informant) "all who get it die." There is also one chemist at Cunnamulla. Cod-liver oil and cough mixture are the remedies generally pre scribed for the epidemic by Dr. De Leon, but, as stated above, they do not seem to be effective. Perhaps some of the'Brisbane medicoes might let hiimanity strain their professional etiquette so far as to suggest some line of treatment that would be more efficacious. If my Cu...

The Pirates of Penzance. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 26 September 1885

■' The Pirates of Penzance. Williamson,- Garner. & Musgro ve's Royal ' Comic Opera Company has presented " the " Pirates of Penzance " to appreciative audiences at the Theatre Royal, Thursday evening of last week being the first night of Its performance. This witty compound of Gilbert and Sullivan had been performed before Brisbane playgoers several times previously, but never with the go and finish that characterise the present Opera Company;The plot need not be referred to, as it is almost as well known as that of " Pinafore." Miss Nellie Stewart takes theparfcof Mabel,the chief of the daughters of Major-General Stanley, and the lover of Frederick, the apprentice Pirate. She scores a brilliant success every time, and in the song, "Poor Wandering One," which turns up twice in the Opera, she surpasses herself. Miss Emma Chambers, as Ruth, finds an advantageous scope for her magnifi cent contralto vbice, her first song, of confession, " When Frederick was a little lad," being...

A Tariff Suggestion. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 26 September 1885

'si f? $' to* -$v A Tariff Suggestion. The Colonial Treasurer of Queensland has initiated new taxation that: he estimates wiUbringliim in an additional £90,000 of revenue. He also calculated ; thatjthero ^asonly a deficit of £60p0 to meet; so that he has actually provided for over 480,000 more than he wanlp. Of course, I. don't endorse his hopeful-"' ness, but, for the purposes of this article, I use his own iigiires^ If the Govern Jmeht* is so sanguine that the results stated will be obtained, it leaves itself plenty of margin for easing off oppressive commercial restrictions in other ' quarters. The Maryborough Chronicle has just .ahownone avenue of trade, in which a little judicious reciprocity with another colony will bring about the most felicitous Results. \ I£-thei Griffith Government hhs played1 havoc with one Queensland .industry m6ie than another, it is the Bugar industry. It has been crushed by direct and specific legislation. It has been made the Victim of a jjoUtiqal cr...

Cricket Chatter. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 26 September 1885

Cricket Chatter. By Mid-off. I have been shown a very neat little card contain ing a list of officers of the Oxford Cricket Club, together with the rules of the same club, and it would be well if other clubs followed in their foot steps. ' At the Ipswich Grammar School Sports, held on tVe 12th inst., G. Hutton won the £2 2s. trophy presented by Mr." D. Forbes, for throwing the cricket ball. He threw it 98 yards. Good boy, Hutton. E. Saunders was second with 87 yards. , Ten competed. The Army v. Navy Cricket Match, played on the Albert Sports Ground, on the 15th iiist., did not'at tract a large gathering. It was not to be expected that .it would, coming ofE as it. did, so early in the season; and I presume that only the more imme diate friends of the players thought it worthwhile to patronise it, for, certainly, there were Very few of the general public.
