The Dude's Drink. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 7 November 1885

The Dude's Drink. Two gloved, and starched, and caned (but not in the way they should be) and high-collared dudes entered Jordan's Australian Hotel, at the corner of Queen and Albert Streets, the other day, having invited two or three friends to—"aw—join us in— aw—a glass of—aw—wine." Stately they stalked to the counter and the orders were given. The re freshments being placed on the counter, one of the dudes said— "Aw! yaas, these are mine," Host: " Yes, they '11 be yours when you've paid for them." The other, masher came to the rescue jvifch— <! Aw! They '11 be all right, bai jove ! 111 awnsah for them, yaas!" Host (d la Harry Bickards): " Non-sence I Bai Jove! No, you won't, I've heard something like that before." Collapse of mashers, whining, but without wines. The four-foot-nothing spieler, George Bead, known in the North as " Dumps," has been, for some years back; making his living by various means —very various indeed. He carries all the para phernaliaappertaiuing ...

A Champion Cooey. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 7 November 1885

A Champion Cooey. An ex-squatter, who resides close to a Northern township, was in that township the other day, helping to " paint the town red." While enjoying himself, he made a bet of liquors for all hands at the local hotel, that his cooey could be heard a mile in all directions at one and the same time. Sentinels were posted at distances at convenient points, and, while these were getting to their destinations, cooeys were filling the air, for everybody almost went outside to show off the strength of his lungs. But the champion cooeyist employed the interval in lubricating his throat with donations of mine host's best whisky, and, when word came back that all was ready, he was remarkably well oiled. Silence fell upon the audience, and you might have heard a soldier-ant bark, as the champion stood upon the verandah of the hotel. He opened his mouth, threw his chest into play, and there issued forth a terrific yell, and a burst of something like hail went flying through the erowd...

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

Crlcfcet. The match between the Townsville and Mercantile C. C's. was continued on Saturday, when some really good cricket was displayed. When tinae was called on the previous day, the Townsville C.C. had made 160 for 5<wickefcs, Hartland, one of the "hot out" men, having put up 45. On again going to the wicket, however, he only- succeeded in adding one to his score, when he was splendidly bowled by Kev. Dillom. It was plain sailing for the Merks on Hartland being dismissed, the other four wickets falling for 13 runs, which brought the total for the first innings up to 174. The Townsville men had counted on the pro bability of makftig the second century before leaving the crease, but fate, a bumpy wicket, and an improve ment in both the bowling and fielding of their oppon ents, prevented them from so doing. The Merks sent Green and Moody to initiate the run-getting business, but both batsmen were out of luck, and it was not until Dodd (the Captain of the team) faced the b...

No title [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 7 November 1885

This is a par of fashionable news from Jundah, and ought properly to be in the lady's columns, but fatffcy prompts me to place it here. The aristocracy of Jundah, observing that a commodious new Post and Tefegraph Office had been completed and occupied, put on frills and tried to satisfy a long felt want by getting up a ball in Host Grracie's Coffee Kiooms. The sterner sex merrily toed the music, but the ladies were confined to three. As the gents of Jundah don't excel in the arts of civilzation and mashing, they got considerably left, ae they are j distinctly-oufc of it in round dances. However, some brilliant genius introduced a fourth lady, in thie person of a young and agile black gin, who kindly " obliged" with strict impartiality, and made things hum till the small hours of the morning, jundah _-vip$yidentsly civilising and educating ~ its autocl^enfes.

Queensland Figaro "Fear God; Speak evil of none; Stick to the Truth; and never be done." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 1885. The Grammar School Cadets. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 7 November 1885

•'Fear God j Speak evil of none; - Stick-to the Truth; and never bedone." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 1885. The Grammar School Cadets. There is a branch of the present Defence Force of Queensland known as the Grammar School Cadets. They are big boys at the Grammar School who give a portion of their time and trouble to drill, &c., in the same way as do the adult volpnteers, and their head is their head master, known in his military capacity, as Captain Roe. There is great ^dissatisfaction at present existent amongst these cadets, who believe they have been badly treated in more ways than one. In a late Government Gazette, a man named Wilson, who is outside the Grammar School altogether, was gazetted Acting-Lieutenant to the corps. In this matter, the boys %re very resentful, because they believe that the position was legitimately due to Sergeant Coxen, the senior sergeant of the corps. At the last en campment, Captain Hoe praised Sergeant Coxen for his behaviour and servi...

The Farron Poultry Farm. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 7 November 1885

The Farron Poultry Farm. My travelling- agent writes j—Being in Rockhamg ton tlie other day, and having heard a great deal about the poultry farm which had been started near that town by Mr. Theodore Wood some few months ago, I took the opportunity of driving over anji having a look at the place. The farm is only six miles from Rockhampton and is situated on the high road tb the Crocodile diggings. Everything appears to have been done upon a most elaborate and ex tensive scale, and certainly no pains nor money has been spared by the proprietor in his endeavour to make a complete success of the poultry industry. There are at present about 800 pure-bred birds of different varieties upon the estate, which go to form the " stud." All these varieties are icept in separate pens enclosed with wire netting. Each lot has its own house, all thoroughly distinct and separate from one another. An acre and a quarter is usually allowed as the area of a pen for 50 birds. The incubators, 8 in number...
