The "Lady Godiva" Burlesque. "I waited for the train at Coventry— I hung with grooms and porters on the bridge." —TENNYSON. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 6 October 1883

The "Lady Godiva" Burlesque. "I waited for the train at Coventry I hung with grooms and porters on the bridge.'1 -TKSKTSOH. For the information of my numerous readers, X must not omit to say something about what happened on the 6th of August at a place, in England, -where bicycle, tricycle, and other cycle makers "most do congregate"-the ancient city of Coventry. In the year 1040, or thereabouts, when the British, or Saxon " Erles," or LordB of the Manor, had a prescriptive right to levy taxes on their vassals, a party by the name of Leofric, who Vas very staunch in his Conser vatism, informed a deputation of the burghers of the town that he would " see them further first" before he'd let 'em off certain " tithes " which he considered his rightful spoil* The " deppytation " thanked him for his courtesy, as is customary even now, and withdrew. That night, Earl Leofric had something stronger than water for his supper, and his wife, the charming Lady Godiva, began to give him a curtain...

Contractors' Troubles. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 6 October 1883

Contractors' Troubles. THE recent appeals ad mUericordiam of the railway contractors, through the Courier, will not, I fear, result in much substantial advantage to themselves. I am not going to weary my readers with the pros, and cons, of the matter; but I just want to point out one circum stance. They say, and I believe truly, that they can cany out their contracts more cheaply and more efficiently under one engineer than another. Now this is one of the things that are, but " didn't ought to be/1 yet nevertheless ever will be so long as human nature is human nature. Just as one constable will " invite" a drunken man to the lock-up, while another will drag him along like a bag of muck-so one engineer will have a crochet in one direction, whilst another will hold totally different views. Doctors differ, so do engineers, and all the legislation of -our " collective wisdom " will never be able to force the various minds of either into precisely the same groove. That's all about it.

The Bailiff and the Cashbox. (A TOWNSVILLE TWITTER.) [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 13 October 1883

The Bailiff and the Cashbox. (A TOWNSVITLIE TWXTTEB.) And now I open up a letter About a' wary 'Townsville debtorr Who'd really rather go to gaol if He could but circumvent a- bailiff. Just one of those gay careless rum 'uns Who take no heed of plaint or summons, Who won't pay down their contributions To process-server's executions. He'd greet each writ-producing wobbler With, airy ease-he'd shout a nobbier! He'd say, " I know the law directs, But then you see I've no effects! " It's rough on you-if I can borrow, I'll let you have some coin to-morrow!" Next day, his tale would be the same, For his jbo-morrow never came. A bailiff long had kept a wary Old ocular upon this airy Young buck who'd never , plank the ante, And pleaded that his means were scanty. He dogged him up, he dogged him down. He dogged him over Townsville town, He never tried "to scold, or hector But simply dogged him like a spectre. One day he saw him leave a shanty, A toting of a small portmanty, He never spoke, h...

SHE was a Kangaroo Point young lady, and she wore a red jersey that looked as if she had been poured into it hot, and was boiled over. He sat beside her on the sofa. Suddenly she trembled, got rid of a pretty lit-le shriek, shuddered and moved away. " What's the matter ?" he asked as he looked around the room. " Oh, how you frightened me," she answered, looking at him seductively. " How, my dearest?" "Oh, I thought you were going to embrace me." " Upon my word I wasn't," he answered, as he moved away from her. And then the cat went out of the room, got on the fence, and sang for her partner, and the pet dog crawled under the sofa and had a fit. \ # # # NOTE these three advertisements, all clipped from a recent number of the Melbourne Age LADY wishes situation as lady (!) or business housekeeper; references.

Football. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 13 October 1883

Football. AND SO the Football Sports of 1883 have gone to rest. The meeting of Saturday last numbered the third of the combined Annual, and the fourth of the Club Sports j for in 1880 the Committee of the Brisbane Club worked up a programme that has since been the basis of other gatherings. This annual competition amongst our athletes is about the best all round . enjoyment that can be had in the Gardens during the whole . year. Public enthusiasm has always been worked up to such a pitch, that the attendance of the sports loving community, with so many sisters aud cousins, &c., tends now to put our fellows on such splendid mettle if even for public show. Saturday morning saw many a lowered countenance, for Jupiter seemed as though he would take possession of the earth for the time b.epig, and* although gladdening the hearts of thousands, caused sorrow .to many a young fellow anxiously awaitini the " afternoon of afternoons." Dark heavy clouds covereu the southern sky through...

Bowen Hills Ball. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 13 October 1883

Bowen Hills Ball. 'Neath blaze of mellow, glowing chandeliers, The pleasure-makers caper, nimble-toed. All! Would that for these bright-eyed, charming dears, There was a poet who could write an ode- * Some literary glowworm who had glowed « In sweet, idyllic verse-no farthing rush To be blown out when someone cries, " Be blowed!" But writer who, in literary brush, Won't put the cheek of modesty to blush.

A "Figaro'5 Commission. MORE good work effected by Figaro \ A month Pi\ two ago, I gave public warning that lands in the Far North were being acquired in such a manner as to reveal circumstantial evidence that perjury and other offences were boldly arid frequently committed in the Land Offices by applicants for such lands.

The result has been glorious. ; I am happy to be able to inform my readers that the FIGABO articles anent tlus Far North land-sharks; ing attracted the notice of the Government. I am still more lxappy to say that M* II wraith was bold enough to tackle seriously an evil that has hitherto appalled every Government-for these, land-sharks are very powerful.

White Labor Depending on Black. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 13 October 1883

White Labor Bependiilg .ion Black. THIS is not my own statement. It is a telegram published in the Cornier and I want you all to read it with an analytical eye as to its construction and meaning. (Italics mine) . -y-'-y-t.' MA.CKAY, Octobfer 8. Owing to the scarcity of colored labor, an<i th.e uncertainty- of ft satisfactory settlement of the cOolie question, the* sugar planters are restricting their operations to a considerable extent, and are discharging all the white men who can possibly be dispensed with. . ? You will" observe that white men are being turned off because colored labor is scarce. This may seem strange to persons unacquainted with the work ing of plantations, but it is true. Tb e fact is .that the sugar indusl ry gives employment a id tip- top wages to hundreds of white men. But why should this be dependent upon the employment of colored labor ? I will tell you. Of course* no planter will cultivate sugar unless it pays him. The cane-trashing and other di...

Aquatics. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 13 October 1883

Aquatics. HANLAN will come out to Australia. At least, he will if lie's a man of his word. Hunt, the keen sporting proprietor of the Oxford hotel (premises redolent of English and Australian cricketers!) King St., Sydney, has written Hanlan, repeating his former challenge for £1000 a side, and allowing Hanlan£250 for expenses. Laycock is to row Hanlan, or, if Laycock be un able to compete, the "next best men" are racked thus Tricket, Bush, Beach. I think this is entirely misconceived. Tricket is no longer anywhere amongst even tour colonial cracks. Both Bush and Beaeh have beaten him, and he, in sporting parlance, "has no heart." With Hanlan, who has "played with him" twice, Ned Tricket would not stand the slightest show. Laycock, laid up with his fractured leg at Shark Island, is getting well very fast. Sydney rowing enthusiasts have de cided to proffer him a grand benefit entertainment at the Theatre Boyal. At the preliminary meeting alone they guaranteed him £490 worth of tickets...

Violating the Secrecy of the Ballot. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 13 October 1883

Violating the Secrecy of the Ballot. MOST extraordinary proceedings have taken place at Toowoomba. A man named James Kennedy was arrested, prosecuted, and acquitted at the Toowoomba Police Court upon a charge of "having personated one James Kennedy, No. 805, on the Toowoomba electoral rollIt turned out that hie had " personated himself " and he was, as I have said, acquitted. The evidence disclosed a most unblushing breach of the Electoral Act on the part of the Returning Officer, E. W. Eobinson, who is, evidently, flagrantly unfit for the position he held. Kennedy applied for his ballot paper. The Return ing officer asked him, as it was his business to ask him, "Are you the James Kennedy whose name appears as. No. 805 on the roll ? " Kennedy replied, " Yes." Robinson continued:-" Have you already voted here' or elsowhere during this election?" Kennedy replied," Ho." The Returning Officer then gate Kennedy a ballot paper.
