After Ten Years. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 31 October 1885

After Ten Years. . Two old acquaintances met in Queen-street who had not seen each other for ten years. Their greet ing was most effusive. "Well," said one. "I'm surprised to see you here. How; have you been ?" y " First rate. You're looking well." " Yes. never felt better in my life. Fine weather we're having, but the country wants rain badly." " Beautiful. But I suppose we can expect rain soon.' "Yes, I, shouldn't be surprised. Well-er-X sup» pose I'll see you again before ong?" "Oh, yes.'' " Ah-er good day." They shook hands awkwardly, and departed. ■■ —— ♦ A Shepherd's hut, on Maryland Station, down Stanthorpe way, took, fire on Friday last, and he wag so severely burnt that he died from the effects. He dragged himself down to a creek close by, and wa» found there in a dying condition on Sunday.

*' I hope I don't intrude." Geobgk M'Cleveety is kkig of Drayton—poor sleepy hollow Drayton, with its time-honored old manse and two hotels. Mac;'s farm is a few miles from Drayton city, but he is boss of the people around him. G-eorge is decidedly smart, and is an authority on politics. He is a sort of farmers'champion, and is A1 at good solid argument. He is also Al at breed ing prize draught-stallions, those being a cut above anything in the colony. G-eorge is proud of his politics, proud of his stock, and proud of his name, and he has good reason to be proud of all three. " Po'ss" Connolly is a bank clerk, and those indi viduals are generally somebodies—in their own esti mation. " Poes," as his intimate friends .love to call him, first saw daylight in the classic city of Gayndah, where he is at present spending a' holiday.

As others Zeus. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 31 October 1885

As others Zeus. Hobson, Draper & Co;, bf Cairns, "frith reference to the. recent meeting of the Cairns Jockey Club, made the folio wing announcement: " Shipping Notice !!! The steam tendah, Wharf, will leatei the Zeus for: the races to-morrow morning at 9 o'clock, returning at a reasonable time after the races. The intrepid Commander.- Innis vin,, charge, -Hobson, Draper, and Co., agents." This induced a number of those interested to take passage, in the Zeus, having ascertained that the wharf had no intention of leaving at all. But what mattered, so that they got there ? This they did j and saw the races. At the conclusion of the'last event a "number of the most influential , made a dart for the ^harf, in the sure and certain faith that neither that structure nor the Zeus had left, as yet. But the intrepid Innis, dreading that the wharf might forstall him, this time, had got half-an-hour's start with such passengers as had not waited for the last race. He had got underweigh...

Good Management. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 7 November 1885

Good Management. Our precious Government has been so busy during the last two years in making railways for land jobbers to enable them to get rid of their precious sixteen-perch allotments at fancy price#, that it has been unable to attend to those lines which feed the trade of Brisbane. And now the consequence is that this trade is being diverted to Sydney. Flour is carried by rail from Sydney to Bourke, and carriers can deliver it a hundred miles beyond Charleville at twenty-five shillings a bag cheaper than it can be delivered at Charleville via Brisbane. And, of course, the wool goes down the same way that the stores come up. If our beautiful Government had only pushed on a line towards the Border during the last two years, this would not have been so. For, though the freight charged on our lines is higher than that on the New South Wales railways, the cartage to the line will have been so much less that we should have kept the trade, But, to be good to its friends, is the Minis...

ROUNDABOUT. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 7 November 1885

Mystical, twistical, Highly arfcistical, Mending the cystical split of th« broke heart, Ground about sound about Things- that are found about— Spin off the Roundabout, boost the old go-cart. Trolly time—folly time— We'll have a jolly time, Summer and " swally " time, joys that abound about, Trigger, oh! snigger, oh! Pass me the jigger, oh! Turn up the Figabo, turn off its Eocri'DABorT. It is possj&le for even a lawyer to be too smart. In the Cairns Small Debts Court the other day, Solicitor Ward insisted on strict compliance with the Act, a copy of which, he said should be sus pended in a conspicuous place inside or outside the Court. He was proceeding in this sham, when the Magistratdquietly remarked that the object of the Act was to abolish legal technicalities as much as pos sible, so that, for instance, an erratic summons might be amended, and so on. He then proceeded to point out that, if he adhered to the letter of the law so strictly as Ward wished, the case then befo...

Personal Anecdotes and reminiscences will also be highly acceptable. The oldMaryborough Rifle Club, that fell to pieces recently, has risen like a Phoenix (or any other early bird) from the ashes of its dead past. A new com pany, called the Maryborough Bifle Corps, has been formed, and Henry "Walker, a well-known Maryboro' solicitor, has been appointed Captain. It was mainly due to the exertions of Henry Walker that the corpe of the corps was revived, and is now doing nprtArl urnvl'!!

Liedertafel. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 7 November 1885

liiedertafel. The Brisbane Liedertafel gave its first invitation concert on Wednesday evening, in the Town Hall, in the presence of the Governor, Lady Musgrave, and suite, and a very large attendance of the for tunate invited. The concert was a most enjoyable one although interruptions from the street occurred, more than once at the most inopportune moments. For instance, a yell of " Hot Pies" resounded through the building just as the audience was breathlessly interested in the " Last hope of a broken heart." Again, the " Song of Fortunie " was sadly interfered with by a too utterly audible violin and harp, while the slogan of the Queensland Scottish Rifles created as complete a rout, for a time, as it did at Delhi. The performers on tbe platform com pletely had their pipes put out, and had to wait until the other ones were also out—of hearing.
