A Cricket Story. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 24 October 1885

A Cricket Story. The newly appointed, parson of a very hilly town, being a cricket enthulsiast; was resolved to instil a love for the game into his parishioners. Accord* ingly a meeting was held, f, Subscriptions p.nd telp were promised, and the sole difficulty that remained to be overcome was the discovery of a suitable field. The only level bit in tla© iRaBsfc';beloiigeja to the batcher, who was very overbearing, and bumptious. He lent the paddock and, though no cricketer, was asked to play in the opening match as a matter of courtesy. He was out at the first ball, but remained at the wickets to have a. second innings. The um pire remonstrate with'him, telling him he wag out. The butcher turned round and said," Oh! I'm hout, ham I? I'm hout ? Well, hout you all go off my blooming paddock \"

One Shilling Collect. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 24 October 1885

— . +1 . One Shilling Collect, Dear Figaro,—I am very glad to see you exposing the ''one shilling collect" tyranny, and sincerely hope you will not let the matter drop until you have worked , a reformation, and caused " A.T.M." to enquire into the matter and see for himself how it is abused, and curtail the power of the check clerk. There are many instances of one station making two errors (which, in a rush of business, is pardonable, sometimes,) of one penny each, in checking other stations, and the check clerk sends two separate Is. collects, and if the check clerk happens to have any private " down" on any fellow, it is in his power to vent his petty-spite and wire in with Is. collect for every imaginable error, when, very often, he is in the wrong himself. But when it is a Brisbane operator's error it is often quietly passed over, as he has the advantage of being able to draw A.T.M.V attention to it. There is no doubt it is a good system if properly carried out, as it is necessa...

The Mews Caterwauls. T (Fob Figabo.) Old Granny Bumper had a cat, Which she did prize.above All home-made gems of this and-that. It was her fur-reign lore. It wag her legislative aid, Her Council, too, because In ev'ry law thatGranny made, It would insert its claws. And Granny knew each drifting straw On politics *8 stump. No matter what the tricks, she saw The " way the cat would jump." When Granny, too, was pensive, and lit archness she was slack, She'd stroke the cat with gentle hand. And it would " arch its back." But troubles came old Gran upon, Things went from bad to worse; Tet when her money all was gone, The cat lent Gran her jiurrs. And when old Granny's ancient eyes With tears of grief were wet, The cat would softly sympathise;— It was a feline pet. Nor could old Granny e *er be " bit" By swindlers, if the cat Was present at the scene, for it Could always " smell a rat." But yet in vain are feline strives Against old Time's fulL stren'th; Puss safely wandered through nine...

Judge Pring's Defamers. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 24 October 1885

Judge Pring's Defamers, I have carefully refrained from entering into the arena of dispute in respect of the merits of the recent debate in Parliament, as to whether the widow of Judge Pring should be awarded £1000 or not. Archer, the knight of Graeemere, like the gallant old bachelor he is, championed the cause he had espoused, in the most graceful and unobjectionable w;ay. He placed it upon no fictitious ground of there being any just claim ox right to the proposed grant. Sam Griffith, too, accepted the position in a very fair j&nd dignified manner, merely asserting, as tber<eason for his individual vote in favour of the motidxt* £hat even the most democratic communities recognised that it was hardly consonant with their dignity to permit any widow or bereaved relative of a deceased public servant of high standing to suffer actual want, no matter through what fault this pitiabje^condition bed occurred. Sam Griffith, in this, took'ft fair, mazily position, and it...

Dedicated to a Young Chap in Yakham. (SEE Queenslander, 26TH SEPT.) [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 24 October 1885

Dedicated to a Young Chap iu Yakham. (SeeQueenslander, 26th Sept.) Let me feel your hand in mine, Shaking like an aspen leaf— Say, young chap, where did you dine ? Sure 'twas not on bread and beef. 'Spose you'll say you dined on love, And on thoughts of turtle dove, And on blushing cheeks so red— Pshaw? Go to bed. „ Let me feel your pulse, young buffer ? Ah! bounding at ten whisky power; Beally, now, you are a duffer— What! Ten whiskies in one hour ? Take of salts a dose to-morrow, And the pain that's in your breast, Which the cause of all your sorrow, Will sink to rest. Rhymes with lovers are a passion, Love seems to take one, so Publishing them's also the passion ; Bad taste, " Quiz," you must know. Lady fair, sure, didn't know it, When she felt your fingers her's press, That her " Quizzie" was a poet, Or she'd answer yes, ■Am Bab a., Hackay, 7th Oct., 1885.

TWELFTH LESSON. Advice to a man seeking election as M.L.A. for a Western District. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 24 October 1885

Twelfth Lesson. Advice to a man seeking election as M.L«A. for a Western District. Go to a station to deliver your speech while shear ing is on. Probably you will find Chinamen em ployed in the shed. Should the Manager tell you that without them he would not be able to get through* it will not be necessary to refer to this in your speech. Put up at the Manager's house, and eat as heartily as you can of bush fare. This should not prevent you from abusing him, if .necessary, to the men for employing Chinamen. A graceful way of holding yourself is to stand on the butcher's chopping block, placing one hand in your breast, and extending the other to the electors as though you were serving a writ. You should hold a piece of paper in this hand to make the attitude effective. Any paper will do, even an unpaid wash ing bill. Begin your speech by saying what a terrible trouble it has been to you to come up, and remark* that you had to camp out twice on the road. Every one present will have ca...

ELEVENTH LESSON. Advice to the Wool-classer. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 24 October 1885

Eleventh Lesson. > ■ Jidyioe to the Wool-classer. Should you hove taken a contract for scouring the fleeces as well; it is superfluous to tell you how to act. Any idiot with common foolishness would know how to make the rollers skirt the fleeces. Before you come to class the wool of the stud flock, you should find out where the sheep werejbred. If they have been selected by the overseer out of the station ewes, on no account should: you class their fleeces as firsts. If he has selected thein, he "will be proud of them, and . you should squash a man's pride when you get a chance. Sheep which kave been selected by agents down South you should class as firsts, even though the overseer does hot think much of them. "Wool-classing is your trade"-not his; so you can afford to smile at anything he may say. It is ■ safe always to put stud rams' fleeces among the firsts. Should the manager of the station want to know where the fault lies in the fleeces classed among the seconds, you may te...
