Cricket. "Jovial, jocund, jolly bowlers, As if they were the world's controllers." —BARNABY. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 13 October 1883

Cricket. '" Jovial, jocund, jolly bowlers, As if they were tlie world's controllers." . -BARNABY. I am just going to give most of our prominent players of last season a turn this week, cracking up those who hate pleased me, and dropping down upon the shortcomings of others. With sumcient confidence in my own judgment, I flatter myself that such a review will have a beneficial effect upon many ; of course there are numbers of cricketers who never will be taught, and to these their confidence will be its own and sole reward, but my object, is to try, torbenefit those who are willing.to receive advice, and who, on a bad habit being pointed out to them, will try to remedy the failing. My task is by no means an easy one, because it would not be possible to include all the members of the leading clubs for want of space, and many really good men have, not been, for various reasons, good performers last; season. I shall, therefore, only include those whose club services have been valuable f...

Civil Service Co-operative Company [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 13 October 1883

Civil Service Co-operative Company The Queensland Civil Service Co-operative Com pany Jias at le?ig%7feai,ed its breast fully topublic Wi&sm, T^iibpection is iot he0thy. X? "which to admire most-the bold candour of the gentleman commissioned to report upon the Company's affairs, or tlie ^ogged obstinacy of self-glorifieation on the j>a*t of the Board of Directors. Let me trace the history of .this business. The Civil SefvieeCo-operative Company has been, for some time past, believed to be in a bad way. Certain inquisitive spirits amongst the members tried to ventilate their discontent, but were tem porarily squelched by legitimate formal means and the free use of proxies. All this, taking place at. proceedings at whieh the press were not present, seemed in favor of the Board of Directors. But, at. the next meeting, the malcontents rolled up in stronger force. Meanwhile FIGARO had made a note of exclamation upon so much of the subject as was then to be heard of. At this se...

Queensland Figaro "Fear God; Speak evil of none; Stick to the Truth; and never be done." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, OCTOBER 13, 1883. What M'Ilwraith will do. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 13 October 1883

''Fear God; Speak evil of none; Stick to the Truth; and never be done." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, OCTOBER 13, 1883. What Itt'Ilwraith will do. M'liiYfBAiTH kas been advised to incontinently throw up the sponge previously to meeting Parlia ment. If you anticipated, dear reader, that it was Cowlishaw's Telegraph that made Mac. a gift of this advice, you would be wrong. "The counsel comes from the other direction-Mac.'s (supposed) own side. It is that fount of enlightened wisdom^ the Courier, that propounds the scheme. It is argued that Mac. has lost the confidence of Parliament, and that, therefore, he should im mediately make, way for Samuel Griffith. Such advice is the advice of a coward. It is not tendered on the ground of constitutional right. The Courier itself places it on the low plat form of expediency. It is expedient, argues the old. lady, to walk out, instead of waiting to be kicked out. . ' f|Many people will differ from this pusillanimous grandmother. I like to see a man die ga...

He ought to have been a Lawyer. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 13 October 1883

He ought to bare been a Lawyer. Tbb, decidedly so. The particular Gladstone store-, keeper of whom I talk ought to have been a lawyer. The most essential part of a lawyer's education is to acquire the knowledge how to do as little as you can for as| suich as ever you can get. The most clever, lawyer would never get on unless he knew how to make up a Bill of Costs. Well, there is a Gladstone storekeeper who has ac quired that estimable branch of knowledge to a miraole.

The Wheels. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 13 October 1883

The Wheels, THE grave and reverend Mr. Justice Williams, of Victoria, is acyclisi. The other day, His Honor chose to transport him self (that's a good idea-a judge transporting himself j) from Belfast to Hamilton; a distance of 52 miles (good, rood) on a bicycle. The Hamilton bicycle club went out in procession to meet liim, and His Honor, covered with mud and glory,.,was triumphantly escorted into the town. To look at Judge Wil« lioms you would never dream that he was an athlete^ Formerly he was a modest equity lawyer, and as a judge* his only startling propensity is to weep whenever he has occasion to inflict a more than usually severe sentence. His Honor blubbers sympathetically (actual tears!) until the prisoner is quite comfortable in his inind, and he thinks he is going to re ceive only a nominal sentence, and then" our judicial cyclist " socks it on " tremendous.

How to Propose. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 13 October 1883

How to Propose. I have been making enquiries as to the manner in which the momentous question should be "popped," and I give you the result:-A bright-eyed girl, who is a skilful angler for hearts, thinks a young man, to be successful, should propose after a very short ac quaintance-take the girl by storm as it were, while she is .pleased with a new beau and before she has time to tire of him 5 then follow the proposal up with vigorous courtship, lots of flowers and bonbons, drives, theatres, parties, &c., and if she consents insist upon a short engagement by all means. . # # # Another well known blonde bfeauty who has created sad havoc and had much experience in this line. §ays I the only successful way to propose is when leasl; ex pected. .' insist that the acceptance must be " now or never."
