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

Droving. i By Peter Bunkum. There is a great similarity in the life of a drover, and tliat of a sailor. Both have to contend with many hardships, and both have certain advantages that make up in a great measure for their arduous and uncomfortable occupation. When the sailor is in port, he has his run and his fun on shore. When the drover has delivered his mob, he has His few days' spell, and, if a married man, he returns to his home and family for'p, week or two, before starting again on another six months' or mayhap twelve'months' trip. Both the sailor and the drover are constantly travelling from place to place, ever on the move. As ship meets Bhip on the ocean, and exchanges news, so drover meets drover on the road, and each learns from the other the state of the country they have come from, the beBt camps for grass and water, and the news of their friends at either end. \ The sailors have their yarns in the foroastle cabin, off watch, and so does the drover, at the camp fire, wh...

" I hope I don't intrude." H. 0. M 'Clymont, manager, and T. Brennari, accountant, of the Adavale branch, of the Q. N. Bankj have both been recalled to head-quarters. Their sudden transference has come as a surprise to the residents of Adavale; and will interfere some what with the proposed task of getting up a sub scription testimonial for them. Howevfer, e'er they leave, they are to be presented with a purse of sovereigns apiece as a token of the goodwill borne them by their fellow townsmen, as a testimony to their able efforts to forward the interests of Adavale. Geobge Bashford has got too aristocratic to last. I was asking a Northerner about him the other day, and I heard, to my surprise, that George had been laid up with the gout. The railway was then 28 miles along, and George was expected to finish the contract section in a month. But fancy the gout! Cobb's coaches and the New Zealand springs won't do for George any more.

Flitting.^ An Honest Carman.—Young Aus tralia and Young America.—Love Making, &Ci Brisbane, Queensland, October 8th, 1885. My Deare&t Kitty,—My last letter was a whole chapter of accidents, and I didn't finish telling of them even th?n. I'm a sample of how blacky cane sticks to a woman's bustle, when she once gets astraddle—a living sample of the foolishness of bouncing the Mascotte. I guess my Mascotte was Uncle Sam, for, since I renegaded by getting marripd, my luck has been below zero. But, to sequel the before-mentioned chapter, I must tell you how a carter euchred me, or, as the natives say; " had" me. As soon as I settled my auctioneer, I trotted o£E to get a waggon, and soon found a, whole string of them. There's plenty of choice, I thought, and started to choose on the principle that competition was the soul of trade. There didn't seem to be an alarming amount of soul in the B...
