He Met an Earthquake. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 17 October 1885

an Earthquake. ^ * in a .far Western township, the other day; the1 mailman quietly petered off duty, in conseqUenceof the drought and the prevalence of "the curse of the country." Mail time came, but the joker was unfit to hold his horse firmly under him, and there w$s; likely to fee trouble. But a friend in need turned up and volunteered to run the line "for this occasion only," and the local excitement subsided. The occasion, however, proved too much for the volun teer. Somewhere - in .-the -saddle-bags or horse furniture there was located a sample of street solace "—"digger's glory," some call it—and'the volunteer mailman The " sweet solace " then smelt him, for his biteath still hp® a perfume n<5j; Of Araby^ thpy say/ How ever, that is anticipating. The mails didn'tturn up to time, and, as there was an expectancy of heavy remittances, there was a big to-do for a while, A search party ventured out, and its members were planning how to construct a litter in case it alid...

Jeter's Courtship. I -will jcalL him Petet. Xt isa straight-hfii^| sprik of a name;fknd lie was, a stiaight-haired, free-heartedA Dane, living in the Burnett district! Like many of Lis ^pflntjcymen, he had come out as a free immi grant;, worked hard on bad tack for years together, managed to pay for his selection, and now stood (or, rather, sat,"when I introduce him, for he was on a hotel verandah) in fairly comfortable circumstanees—r not toomUclrmoney, but with no need to fear any future destitution. Peter sai iipon the verandah of a Burnett town ship hotel; arid pondered. The surroundings were picturesque, hut his; thoughts were not in them. It was a bright, clear. Australian day, full of the twitter of ;bush birds, .and the chirrup of ..grasshoppers. Away in front, like a stretched esplanade, lay the watfera of the Butaett, hugged in between two boldly projecting banks—projecting enough to give the river-shores definity of outline, but commonplace enough, to soften the scene int...

A Dull Week in Herberton. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 17 October 1885

A Boll Week in Herberton. < A Southern man journeyed recently to Herberton. Being tolerably well-connected and a decent sort of a vagrant, it was bound to be his luck that he was well-known to the police and to every unregistered goat in the, district. Meeting a remembered face, he couldn't locate him m his mind, and, after con sideration, he remarked.:;— ... ; •••?. > " I seem to know you somewhere, but Ican'i think ^ where." . . " That's so," replied the stronger; "I arrested you down South for vagrancy, when you were running a confidence racket." , "Then, I presume you are a member of the force ?" "I was till quite recently, but I'ye reformed." " And how are things in Herberton ? " re Beastly dull. There hasn't been a constable sacked sfrfte I was discharged, and that's a Week ago."

The Wheels. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 17 October 1885

The Wheels. The advent of the coming public holidays, and the various races, for the wheels announced in connection with different gatherings on the 9th Kovembemext, has made quite a stir in the ranks of the wheelmen recently. At Warwick, four races are on the pro gramme, two open and two for the local amateurs, For the open races, Messrs. Coutts, Stombuco, Mark well, Ouinming, and Aird will probably compete, whilst others have signified their intention of accom panying them. At ISockhampton the first annual sports of the local club will be held; but, beyond Sweeney, of the B.A.C.C,, no other Brisbane cyclists will compete. Aird had some intention of doing so, but it is said he has abandoned the idea. At Ipswich a tempting prize has been offered by the Oddfellows, for which it is believed Belbridge will compete unless the track difficulties are too great. At the Exhibition Grounds there will be a 11 mile race, but, up to the present, those who intend competing in it are dark horses;...

Weather Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 17 October 1885

I V \ — Weather Notes. Talking abo^^fSciik^fa^sjMid red-tape foolery/ one of the most hollow drolleries is the jjystem iti vogue in the Queensland Telegraphic Department^ of sending into the head office at Brisbane, the weather bulletins from the Various stations.

Ne Sutor Ultra Crepidam. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 17 October 1885

Ne Sutor Ultra Crepidam. I wonder in what remote part of Bohemia Justice Lilley picked up German enough to justify Mm in laying down the law to Mr. Real—or anybody else— on the pronunciation of what his Honor would pro bably, if allowed his fling, call the Doolchai zttngai (or German tongue) with about as near an approxi mation to accuracy as his humourous ruling as to the pronunciation of " Weise," which, for his honor's edification, I may lell him is not" Yizai/'or any thing like it. Vide, or u Veedai," " Little Tommy's Guide to German." The people in Weise's neighbourhood may, as Mr. .Real deprecated, call him " Weez " and be wrong, as his Honor ruled so learnedly ; but they are certainly not farther off the mark than his Honor, who showed himself as ignorant of German pronunciation as the crassest English boor, and it would be deeply interest ing to know from his Honor what is the " similar word coming from the same source as Vizai, but with an entirely different meaning.

HOW WE ARE GOVERNED. WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 7TH. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 17 October 1885

Wednesday, October 7th. The Probate Act Amendment Bill having been read a third time, consideration in Committee of the Licensing Bill was resumed. The principle subject discussed was Macfarlane's amendment Prohibiting the Barmaid. Most everybody had something to say about it, including Sammy, who went back on the teetotallers, and Isambert, who thought that, while scrubbing floors was more honorable than tending at a bar, the latter was less demoralising than working in the Ipswich tailoring shops. This hit at Macfarlane's town brought down the House. Billy Miles, pro bably influenced by old-time recollections, went for the barmaid because she was so seductive, hut when the bell rang . Macfarlane was Beaten—25 to 15. Midgley tried to catch a sidewind by proposing, as another amendment, that the barmaids hould have a year to live, but this move sent Miles and Dutton across to the noes and was also defeated—24 to 15. ThursdaTj October 8th. Leave having been given to bring in the Fede...
