Friendly Societies. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 29 September 1883

Friendly Societies. THE Report of the Registrar of Friendly Societies received by the last English mail, shows under what quaint titles it pleases, one's fellow-men to combine witli a view to co-operative relief in case of sickness or death. The Orders of Oddfellows, Foresters, Buffaloes, Druids, and Shepherds are, of course, widely known, but who ever heard of such curious brother hoods as the Ancient Order of Comical Fellows, of Ancient fiomans, of Peaceful Doves, of Total Abstinent ' Sons of the Phoenix, of Female Druids (why; not Druidesses, I wonder ?) > of Golden Fleeces, and of Fre6 Gardeners ? A score of other eccentric names could be quoted from this official report, which has, in self-defence, to resort to the use of initials inreferring £o many of the brotherhoods. But, even with the use of initials, the report makes somewhat difficult read ing. Whoi for instance, without special knowledge, would be likely to guess that, G.E.L.U.O.C.F. and L.I.O.U.M.B.U. referred to a ...

The Capting and the Draper. CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 29 September 1883

The Capting and the Draper. CHAPTER I. THIS is a tale of berlud. Of war, ; Of vengeance. Of unsatisfied honor. There was a Draper of mild and benevolent dis position, and of still milder and more benevolent as pect. His feet (and yards, for that matter) might have been- only inches for all an outside spectator could tell. There was also a Capting, pf warlike, eon-of-Maris calibre, but he doesn't come in here. There was a ^New-Chum-the Capting's friend. He was pf a festive and chivalric disposition. When festive, he was free-and-easy; when chivalric, he was blood-thirsty and azure-veined ; when both, he was-what you shall see. ; The mild and benevolent Draper was one evening, recently, ih a Brisbane hotel, and observed an indi vidual reclining in a; chair, with his feet* upon a, table in one of the rooms. . Proceeding xniidly and benevolently, he brought alongside. a chair, and, with placid respect, lifted the legs of this reclining individual from the table tp the chair. . Nothingwa...

A Cooktown Cooey. A CASE FOR ALL PHILANTHROPISTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 29 September 1883

A Cooktown Gooey. k 0A8B JOB ALL PHILANTHEOPIBT8. COOKTOWN suburbs axe being tortured with in numerable black visitations and consequent nuisances. To explain the situation to my non-Northern readers, I must premise that there have been all sorts of Governmental settlements of the nigger question per formed for these particular pests. For instance, a reserve has been created especially for them, and rations, tomahawks and blankets are periodically distributed amongst them. The market able commodities, however, find their way more or less -speedily into the Northern rumcasks. The niggers .located on North Shore are not unsophisti cated. They are mean-looking, whining beggars enough, it is true; but there is not a semi-civilised trick of black cunning they are not. up to. If circumstances favored, they would undoubtedly be treacherous into the bargain. Even now they some times extend their Kids against the white men's cattle, which falL by spear and tomahawk. But the particular grieva...

Football. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 29 September 1883

Football. THE last matoh of the season between senior clubs look plaoe on Saturday. As there are varying tides of war so ore were varying tides of football, and any one wishing' for an exemplifica tion of this latter should have seen the Brisbane and Wallaroo - match. It will be remembered these two dubs have only met each other twice this season, the first match resulting in a draw in favor of the Wallaroo by only one point. Consequently a. hard and fast game was expected for the second tusBle. And so T8®" ®°^h tanks were filled with first twenty men of worth ana experience, the Brisbane numbering only sixteen men (mmua Harry Pritchard), the Wallaroos complete in their team. This last team was inolined to be in better fettle than the reds, having met the Excelsiors the previous Saturday, so that their trim was fair, and not to be despised! The result of the game was anything bat pleasing to the Wallaroo team, whilst their backers wondered how it could be. Brisbane followers were ju...

Cricket. "Jovial, jocund, jolly bowlers, As if they were the world's controllers." -BABNABY. THE last Committee Meeting *of the Queensland Cricket - Association prior to the Annual General Meeting, was held on Thursday evening, and I regret, that, through the nearness of . the date to my time of publication, I am unable this week to state what has been. done. However, the business on hand was:-The appointment of a date for the annual meeting, and to settle other matters in connection therewith. The commit tee will have cause for congratulation on the financial position of the Association; and I sincerely hope that, this ensuing season, their officers, whoever they may be, will have the practice and match wickets, on which our cricketers have to learn and improve, made BO that they can go in for the study without risk of life and limb. Brisbane has been quite long enough the worst city in Australia 'in respect of wickets, and. nearly every leading town in Queensland .could, last seas...

There was so much local excitement that four or fire hundred people attended as spectators. W. Smith was staiter, andAndy BjQl judge and referee.

Together for two-thirds of the way; then Oelkers jumped ahead, kept ahead, and won by-a yard 'and a half. Murphy's friends think that his defeat was due to his departure from the advice of his trainer as to regimen. His backers are so confident of his ability to beat Oelkers, that they offered to put up £100, £200, or £300 in six weeks- time for another trial, but Oelkiers wasn't " on."
