Did'nt Know Him. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 7 November 1885

Did'nt Know Him. A leading draper from Ipswich, a leading grocer of the same town, and a young squatter from the West were sauntering along Brisbane Street, Ipswich, tHe other night, all in good healthy spirits (both natural and artificial). Presently, a meek old cow came along in the opposite direction. Directly young Backblock saw the familiar form, he sung out—"Hullo ! mate," caught the beast by the horns, and was on her back in a trice. Off went the cow, heels well in the air, and tail shooting out like a pennon from a flagpole in a gale of wind. But she could'nt show a cleaner pair of heels than young Backblock, for, at one of her violent bucks, he started to find how high he could get, heels also well up, and limbs with a general appearance of spreading themselves around for something to catch hold of. They did'nt seem to find it, and so came down with a terrific smash. Result: Smashed watch, squashed hat, an ornamental face and a still more ornamental limp, which he carries y...

Let common men, with stupid pen, be careful what they write, " A Member grand," I understand, can any name indict— And straightway stalk, with only tallr, all through the " House " so free. And face with jokes, those jolly blokes, a " special committee." Singing, <f Jolly boys, make no noise, Wink at what you see j— I'll roll your logs, through the bogs, If you'll roll mine for me."

More Telegraphic Wails. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 7 November 1885

More Telegraphic Wails. My readers know by this time all about the " one shilling collect" system of fines in the Telegraph Department, and I have spoken of one or two other grievances lately in connection with the same de partment. A young lady operator, however, writes to say that this " collect" tyranny is as; nothing compared to others they suffer from. She refers me to Hansard, of the 15th inst., to see the report of the reductions made in the House on the 14th in the salaries of some of the telegraphic officials. I've referred to it under another heading. She remarks: —"If any one wants to know any more about such reductions, let him ask any of the young lady oper ators on the Southern and Western railway, as they can tell you a little more than 'I. I.'" (Which term, for the benefit of my uninformed readers, I may mention is a telegraphic mannerism for " go ahead," or " ay ay.") She proceeds to say :—" We (presumably the young lady section) want to know why we are not superint...

"One Shilling Collect." [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 7 November 1885

" One Shilling Collect." An issue or two since, Figaro contained an article under the above heading, exposing and condemning an abominable system of fining the overworked slaves of bottled lightning, who have often to woik till all hours of the night and morning when the line is " crowded," must nevertheless be at the office again at 8.30 a.m., and are expected to be as precise and correct as if they had cast-iron constitutions and were a sort of Babbidge's mechanical calculator. I have received the thanks of a large number of tele graph officials for my interference with a tyrannical regulation. Here is a sample one (we'll suppose that it comes from the centre of Tartary):— " Dear Figaro,—I am very much pleased to see that you are taking up the cause of us poor devils in the f Telegraph Department,' in respect of the ' collect' telegrams issued by the head office to any operator, who thereby has to pay his shillings into the till at his own office and is thus virtually fined in a c...

The Brisbane Girls' Grammar School. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 7 November 1885

The Brisbane Girls' Grammar School. * I had a good deal to say recently about the un practical nature of the system adopted at the Bris bane Boys' Grammar School, and now it seems I am to be the cause of some publicity con cerning apparently equally unsatisfactory results achieved at the Brisbane Girls' Grammar School. However, as I am now dealing with young ladies, I must take up the subject tenderly and lift it with care, for I cannot pretend to know so much on the subject of feminine education and its ramifications, as I could in the case of schoolboys. From evidence placed in my possession, I am in clined to think that there is as much that is hollow and farcical in the system adopted at the Girls' Grammar School as there is. in that adopted at the Boys' Grammar School. At any rate, complaints of favoritism have been made, and it is much to be feared that the bright girls are unduly pressed for ward in order to make a good show in examination results, while duller girls are negl...

"Saucy Fellow Snake." [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 7 November 1885

"Saucy Fellow Snake." An old blackfellow named Toby, on Euroombah Station, Tarooin way, noticed the mailman hand in a couple of bottles of t whisky, and his aboriginal mind rather guessed he'd like to have a share of it. It happene d that, some yeai's ago, he had been bitten by a snake, and had been treated with grog as the usual remedy. So Toby meandered down to his camp with his lubia, to whom he gave proper in structions. Having taken the precaution to puncture his leg with a fishbone, Toby and the gin set up the usual melancholy wail, and the gin went running up to the station for help. Mr. H., who is a very humane man, came down to see what was the matter with old Toby. " Oh ! caramee, Mas'r; me gone bong altogether now; me bitten by a saucy fellow snake!" Mr. H. rushed for a bottle of whisky, and very soon Toby was having swigs out of it. After each pannikin, Toby would swoon away, and imitate snake-bite symptoms, till it became necessary to keep him awake with more whisky. Th...

Mr Dearest Kittie,—To-day is " Gunpowder Plot Day," so-called in English history, the day on which is celebrated the attempt of a fellow named Guy Fawkes to blow up.some ancient English king. It is also the anniversary of the invasion of Eng land by^some other fellow who is always imagined as riding a white horse. Jnst why these two particular occurrences should be held in such grateful remem brance I can't quite make out. I'm sure if they want to remember a time when England had her hat banged over her eyes,, they might turn out on the ever-glorious Fourth, and as 1 said to Charley, last winter, dynamite fizzle was a neater thiBg than this Fawkes'racket seems to have been.
