Our Neighbours. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] HERBERTON. May 15. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 21 May 1885

OUR NEIGHBOURS (from our own correspondent)     HERBERTON May 15. THE weather in the early half of the week was decidedly disagreeable, not that heavy rain fell, quite the reverse; it was a con- tinuation of misty sleet, which has a most uncomfortable effect upon bipeds generally. The Latter half has the advantage of having a fine day after 10 in the morning. A rifle club has been successfully formed. A preliminary meeting was held on Satur- day evening last and another yesterday evening, when the regulations were agreed to, and Herberton numbers amongst the defenders of Queensland a fair specimen of what may be termed embryo excellent shots and soldiers. By-the-bye, as war with Russia is hardly likely to crop up until the next time Eng- land gets " mixed," the several provisional rifle clubs and volunteer corps in the North might be made serviceable, as is the regular army in Canada, as a repellent force against Northern aboriginal rebels, for rebels most ...
