City Fathers at their Work. : The responsibilities-of a City Father , are tremen dous. . A modern Alderman is the surest and most dead certain animal in existence. J0!e is surer footed than a nrqle and flower than a Civil Service promotion.

North of Us. Rockhampton. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 10 October 1885

North of Us. B? Peteb Bunkum. Rookhampton. {Continued*) Its Faces.—Good Queen Bess said in the sweet long ago that" a good face was the best letter of recommendation." Shakespeare wrote,14 In thy face 1 see the map of honor, truth and loyalty." Again —Franklin Bays '4 a cheerful face is nearly as good for an invalid as healthy weather." Bockhampton can point to her cheerful faces, her honest, her truthful, and loyal faces, as a letter of recommenda tion. But her proudest boast is the combination of all these qualities in the person of the Mayor of North Bockhampton, J. W. Face. ' He had faced opposition and Overcome it. He has faced the wrath of his fellow councillors, and his oheek has carried him through. He has faced the scorn and contumely heaped upon his young Municipality by the rival jealousy of the Divisional Boaird and the older town, but at last they have quailed beneath the glance of bis eagle-eye. He has nosed the nuisances of the north side - till : the offender now kno...

Personal Anecdotes and reminiscences will also be highly acceptable. The Miranda, with Admiral Tryon on board, arrived in Cleveland Bay on the morning of Tuesday, September 22nd. Preparations were made for an official landing, which didn't come off. The Admiral, when half-way to town from the coaling station, was met by the Customs launch, boarded her, and was taken ashoro, accompanied by his Flag-Lieutenant and two officers of the Miranda. He lunched at the Imperial, and proceeded to Charters Tower?, return ing at l(Tp.tn. He went on board at once, and steam being already up, the Miranda cleared.

Very like a Whale. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 10 October 1885

Very like a Whale. ,, Thus the: leading: journal:— , " Mrs. Whale, a son, and three daughters accom pany the pastor, and it may interest the ladies of his church to learn that the minister's wife, so far as caii be judged by a brief interview, though pos sessed of a deep and lively interest in .the work of her husband, is likely to allow no "movement" or society, however good in itself, to usurp the place her children occupy in her life. She may best be described as a sunny-faced " quiet little body/' with the word " mother" clearly expressed in feature and manner." This is simply impertinence, insulting alike to the lady whose points are discussed, and to the ladies of Mr. Whale's church, who will surely resent being catered for—talked down to—in this vulgar strain as much as Mrs. Whale, herself, will resent the insolent familiarity and patronage of the notice of her " sunny-face" and her " little body.'' But why stop at Mrs. Whale? If her personal peculi arities are fit subjects f...

The race was run off at Brompton on the 9th of Sept. It was reported to the Police at Cooktown by some blacks at North Shore that they had found a corpse, which they described as being that of a white man. The police proceeded to the spot, among the man groves on the south side of the Endeavour River, two miles from Cooktown, and found a green hide. It was neatly rolled up, but even then, bore no such striking resemblanc...

Cricket Chatter. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 10 October 1885

Cricket Chatter. The cricketers in Townsville are bestirring them selves to some purpose. The other evening they held a meeting at Coyle's Hotel, with the dual object of forming a Cricket Association/ and securing a portion of- the Queen's as a Recreation Ground. The meeting was well attended, representatives from all the ensuing clubs in Townsville rolling up. In the formation of the Association, a spirit of cliqueism was displayed in some of the details, notably in connection with the appointment of the managing committee; but, on the whole, the pro moters of the meeting are to be congratulated on the success which attended their efforts to forward the cause of athletics in Townsville. The committee and vice-presidents will shortly wait on the trustees of the Queen's Park, for the purpose of taking steps to secure a portion of the reserve from the Govern ment, in which object it is to be hoped they will be uccessful.

Queensland figaro "Fear God; Speak evil of none; Stick to the Truth; and never be done." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, OCTOBER 10, 1885. The Knights of Labour. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 10 October 1885

" Fear Go3; Speak evil of none ; Stick to the Truth ; and never he done." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, OCTOBER 10, 1885. The Kniglits of Labour. That famous secret society—the Knights of Labour —is open, to all ages, sexes, and conditions, with three exceptions. Those three exceptions are clergymen, publicans, and lawyers. Clergyman, they claim, are religious fanatics, and however honest, are opposed to that liberty of thought which is a tenet of the order. That the Knights are right, the present attempts to suppress free-thought in the Southern colonies is pretty good proof. The publicans, so they claim, prosper by that Vice which impoverishes the laborer. That they are again right, a great many who are not blue ribbon people will think. The lawyers, claim the sturdy Knights, are the curse of civilization. They make justice a farce, the law the poor man's enemy; they uphold tyranny; would crush out freedom, and, for a fee, will defend the wrong and oppress the right. They live by the wrongs...

Athletics. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 10 October 1885

Athletics. Why ride the men of the B.B.C. Under the garden wall, Because there is plenty of shade you see, Under the garden wall. Our rider's wheel struck a little stone, And into the air went his backbone. And the hike lay down, hut the man was throwo ^ Over the garden wall. Over the garden wall, We never take headers.at all. But you can bet I '11 never forget, The time my wheel a cobblestone met. And landed me where the grass was wet Over the garden wall. Over the handle bar, I went like a Bhooting star, ' My pants were rent, my handle bent, As over the fence like a strick I went, Where I lit on my head there was quite a dent, Over the garden wall. The fifth annual Athletic Sports meeting of the Union Athletic Club, was held at Toowong, on Satur day last. The Governor and party were present, and Smith's City Band enlivened matters considerably during the afternoon. There were, in all, thirteen events, including bicycle and foot-racing, pole-vault ing, and hop, step, and jump.- The...
