From the Capricornian last issue, I gather that the annual meeting of the Bockhampton Jockey Club did not pass off as quietly as it might have done. At the outset, oneof the club (Pattison) objected to the reading of the balance-sheet, as it had not been signed, and taunted the committee with not having the courage to affix its signatures to it. After a slight squabble, it was signed by the President of the Club, and passed by the meeting, Patt...

Final Flutters. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 3 October 1885

Final Flutters. TJie final flutters of the Royal Comic Opera Com pany during the week have been " Les Cloches de Corneville" and "La Maseotte." Both have been genuine successes. Both are popular and have been placed by the present company in a style, and with talents, with which Brisbane has been hitherto unacquainted. Miss Nellie Stewart undertook the respective parts of Germaine and Beitina—which gave a striking contrast of versatile abilities, her Germaine being shy, retiring and sweet, while her Betlina was frolicsome, passionate and hoydenish. Miss Emma Chambers took the premier cake in"*' Les Cloches de Corneville" as Serpolette, her impersona tion betraying a finished abandon that was the perfection of art. Her Serpolettehas certainly never been excelled in Brisbane. In " La Mascotte," she came out as the Princess arid delighted her admirers by importing a new vivacity into the part. Taken all round, the playing of Miss Emma Chambers, during this season, has bfcen forcible an...

HOW WE ARE GOVERNED, Wednesday, September 23rd. Lumley Hill's election for Cook having "been announced/the second reading of the Victoria Bridge Closure Bill was taken up. The Government, of course, in troduced the Bill, hut Bundanba Foote cut loose and opposed it tooth , andnail. In this he was supported by foxton, hut Jordan, who has property above the bridge,, had given an iron-clad oath to his constituents to vote with the Government. It was worth a guinea to see the Member for South Brisbane struggle between his oath and his interests, and roars of. laughter greeted the self-compromise that, although he should vote for the Bill this time, the debate had cast a different light upon. it, and he was sure his constituents would change their minds, when he explained to them, in time for him to. vote against the third reading. M/Ilwraith and Norton opposed the Bill on the ground that it cut off A waterway to the coal-pits, I but Moreheai supported it staunchly. Dingo Donaldson sugges...

The Three Bears. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 3 October 1885

? The Three Bears. It was once on a time, as the story-books say, Three Bruins resided—perhaps at Maokay, Three bank-clerking friends, who did vow and declare, That courtship and wedlock they'd ever forswear. And " Ha 1 ha!" and " Ho ! ho!" roared the Bears of my text, "When the girls come to hear of it, won't they T?e vexed ?" They furnished with luxury, comfort, and taste, And took up their quarters with infinite baste ; And, as they tramped over each part of the lair, " Won't the women be mad ?" grunted every Bear. But " Ah! ah !" and " Oh ! oh !" laughed the girls— "let them be! " They'll soon come around," said the girls, " wait and see!" Well, the weeks rolled away, and Mackay didn't mind, And the Grizzlies began to think people unwind. " This is growing monotonous somehow," snarled Gruff. " Yes/' growled number two, " I've had nearly enough." And " Haw ! haw! and " Hon! hoh V yawnedeach poor weary Bear; " 'Twould be all very well, if we 'd silvery hair." At last one went fort...
