Watch and Guard. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 11 July 1885

Watch and Guard. Last Saturday night, a gay young visitor from the bush was perambulating Queen-street, with his watch chain so festooned. across his manly breast as to! advertise his ownership of such a thing- On getting zareba'd in the middle of one of those knots of . gossipers, who invariably choose the narrowest parts of the way to establish a Debating Club, he suddenly. missed his shining toy, which had been most expertly detached, both from his watch and from his coat. Emerging into open space, he promptly accused one of two friends who were strollin^fja long as evenly and directly as the Paddy's-niatkefc-Iike nature of our main thoroughfare would allow them, of being the thief. This being denied amid much surprise, the bushman went off, not in search of his guard, but of a .guardian, and the two friends proceeded on their way. After going % certain distance, they turned, and were presently met by the irate robbed one, who had, in the meantime, collected a force, not of polic...

Pull Devil, Pull Quaker. Townsville has a society of Good Templars, the prime mover and leading spitifc in which is Captain Patching. A meeting was Held on thev evening of Saturday, June 20th, whereat the -leader above* mentioned spoke at some length. Ori|b^|-following Saturday somebody signing himself * Temperance " wrote to the T. I). Bulletin, accusing Patching of having gone too far in denouncing non-members of his lodge. Says " Temperance/'—4f With horror in his voice he told how he had that day seen a person well up in society so influenced by drink that he could scarcely sit upon his horse. The patriarch did not know his Binner's name, but was so much overcome by the shocking scene that afternoon, that he told his hearers that he intended to dispense with an intro duction to beard the lion in his den and show him the error of his way. With Cbatband-like oratory, ne asked for volunteers to accompany him in the fool hardy enterprise, no doubt, being not oyer anxious to monopoli...

PERSONALS [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 11 July 1885

I hope I don't intrude." Catherine Knight, the benighted creature, the other night, stole a bottle of lime-juice from the Union Hotel, Ipswich, for which 8he was fined ten shillings, in default, seven day's imprisonment. The landlady said she had on several previous occasions missed bottles of grog, and had determined to watch for the thief. But if Catherine loved grog so much as to steal it, at so much risk, I fancy she would scarcely stop if a barrel of limejuice ran after her, praying to be tapped. She was actually seen taking the lime-juice, but who stole the grog ? The blacks have been at it again. The victim, this time, was a man named Boss (or fiossa), who was murdered on Alexandria Station. He had returned, after his day's work at well-sinking, near the house, to his camp, 180 yards distant, and was immediately afterwards heard calling for help. On the station hands going to the1 spot, he was found dead, having apparently been struck down with his own axe, which was afterwar...

The Cairns Chronicle warns the good folks of Cairns that a crocodile is on duty on the local beach every night, enacting the part of the "roaring lion/' bar the "roaring" itself. It says:—" A large crocodile could sneak unseen on to a bather in eighteen inches of-water if it were slightly muddy, and without a second of warning there, is a sweep of the horrid tail, a clash of the terrible jaws, and the bathfer is beyond "the pale of human assistance in this life.", In that case,fall the unfortunate bather could do would be to get within the reach of human assistance in some other life if possible. Fancy how a "bather in eighteen inches of water would feel with the weight of a large crocodile on his back, especi ally unseen! Were ther...

LOST, STOLEN, OR STRAYED. A CUB. DOG, answers to the , name of ' MOETIMER.' Last heard of in f'The Cooktown Independent/' Any person giving such information as will lead to the recovery of this dog, will not only be handsomely rewarded; but will confer a great favor on the undersigned, as the dog is 'very handy as a lick spittle; having undergone a course of training, in the .South, which thoroughly fits him for that capacity.
