The Fate of Walter Clark. "WHEN is the mystery to be unravelled ? With the news of "Willie Clarke's latest search before me, I am more mystified than ever; There is nothing so cruelly unsatisfactory as doubt. Walter "Clarke has : disappeared, but we know not the manner of his t death. 4 No body has been found. No bones have been ^discovered. Eacfe. new snob of blacks inet with tells q. new yarn; A:t leiast, they are ssiid to tell a new Hurigerford's manager, has found a cainp, and Bworn Jto a piece of a revolver barrel; ' yhe blackiboy that Hungerford had is said to be with Massie; but, oil the other hand; there is 9, grave doubt' as to whether he is the same.

Reminiscences of a "Bike." [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 6 October 1883

Reminiscences of a " Bike " Pbteb L , of whom I told you an anecdote sjme weeks ago, was an ardent bicyclist, but had the most original ideas as to the management of that rather awkward vehicle. He used to say, "It's easy enough, don't y' know, when you know how to do it, don't y' see ?" So when he accomplished the feat of alighting over the handles (wrong end up) we were not sur prised, for Peter always had his own way of doing a thing, and when he came off in that style we merely attributed it to his playful eccentricity. One day, he informed us that he was about to take a journey of twenty-five and three-quarter miles,w So, don't y' know, I shall be back at exactly a quarter past four, and then we'll have dinner together, don't y' see ?" Knowing Peter's peculiar ideas (he never would use a brake) and as this was the longest journey he had yet undertaken, we were rather uncertain how he would acquit himself; at the appointed hour, a half-dozen of us were waiting outside the " Star...

Musical Madness. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 6 October 1883

Musical Madness. THERE is nothing in this world for which FIGARO has such a craving as real genuine technical musical talk or literature. It is the whole ambition of his soul to graap such dainties of this kind as may be going. " Fifths/' *' Fugues/' " Counter point," and all similar terms fillme with an unspeakable ravishing joy. "Euterpe's " Musical Echoes in the Courier are to me a weekly hotine bouche, without which I could scarcely exist. And look at the intellectual feast I derived last Satur day from this source. "Euterpe" writes-"The Liverpool Philharmonic Society is in the limbo of chaos." . Highly gratifying, and all very proper, no doubt, only i where or what, or which is the limbo of citaos. If chaos is an undefinable qupntity where is its " limbo," or if this society is "in limbo," where is the chaos ? 'Is. the " limbo of chaos" an Onanism or simply /WdZe-faddle? Steady though,--Euterpe adds-w a local paper saprs that it is 'an extraordinaiy Affair altogether, and a dis...

Reserve Criticism. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 6 October 1883

Reserve Criticism. SOME learned donkey has been enlightening the Courier about the " City Recreation Reserves." The facts he states'are so charming that they ought, to be embalmed along with some Egyptian mummy, in order that they may become an everlasting old-red sandstone monument of imperishable truth. Running back this sentence, I must confess that I don't know what it means; but as I don't know what the learned donkey aforesaid meant, my state of bewilderment is excusable. For instance, the L. D. has placed it on record that the Botanic Gardens "form about half of a pocket bounded by the river." I suppose that is an ornamen tal way of saying that the gardens form an island I "W hich wouldn't be any truer than one of Sam's stump speeches. But the L. D. mounts to eloquence when he tackles the reserves under the superintendence of M'Dowall. We learn that the Wickham Terrace reserve has been " nicely laid out and several seats-(luxury of luxuries; positively several seats !)-made f...

He has been out in the far bock tracks lor some months, and just came down time to get into quarantine along with the rest of the Duke of Westminster's passengers. He called on me and I naturally interviewed him about himself, his doings, and all the " boys " out way back in the bush.

It was about six months ago when he started, but the last five weeks, as I have already hinted, have been passed moralising ou Peel Island." Jack went out with.
