The Little Balloon Man. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 13 October 1883

The Little Balloon Man. M. GODABD, the Parisian aeronaut, while, recently filling an immense balloon in the Champ die Mars, amused the spectators by haying a balloon model of the late M. Thiers (a perfect resemblance, minus the spectacles) filled with gap, and letting it loose. The little balloon man vanished in the clouds. That evening, a lady in a country house near Bievro, was making her toilete for dinner in an upper chamber. It was a warm day, and she had opened one of the windows which looked out upon the park, and was safe from any pry ingeyesWhile tranquilly engaged, by the assistance of corset lacing, in reducing her waist to a size and shape that would reflect credit on her husband's taste, she was suddenly startled by a blast of wind, followed by a strange' noise : and immedi ately the casement was thrown, open; and our little balloon inan entered her chamber unannounced. The lady uttered a cry of terror, and threw a shawl over her shoulders. The little man, driven by the...

Translate this French. Abaxtdoxt at once any notion yon may have formed that I am going to give yon a lesson totfSTrench. It is no French vocabulary I want you to ponder over ; it is French action on our coast. ; I advised my readers lately that the French Irans port ship Cher mob coming south. Well, she didn't come; She touched at Cook town. Then she went.on to Bowen. Next she went back to Townsvilleand took in coal-reporting that slie had been coming on to Brisbane to get coal, under the mistaken impression that~she couldn't get it up North; and that, having found out that she could, of course she returned to Tovrasville. Having got the coal, she slithered off to Noumea. At least, it wan given cut that she was go ing to Noumea. Those who like to believe this yarn may. I don't.

A Telegraph Department Grievance. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 13 October 1883

A Telegraph Department Grievance. The wife of a rc Line-Repairer-in-Charge" of a Telegraph Office lias sent me a letter detailing, with very evident feeling, her Departmental troubles. It appears that some three years ago a Departmental regulation made it compulsory that the' wifps ,<rif all " Line-Ue pairers-in-Charge " should acquire the art of operating, so that they should be able to take charge of their respective offices whenever their husbands had to be away on duty. Let me state the case for the Govern ment first. A r< Line-Rfepairer" has to he in r&diness always at a moment's notice to go along the line when telegraphic communication between his and the next station is inter rupted. If a Telegraph Station is only in charge of a managing "Line-Repairer," it is very evident that when he is absent upon his outside duties, there must, elapse: some interval between the moment, that he has meriaed' the " break " and met his neighbouring u Line-Repair...

The Great Divorce Case. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 20 October 1883

? ,;V : » . ?' . .V, The Great Divorce Case. I UNDERSTAND that Chief-Justice Harding will shortly have before him a case of singular interest in which several well-known and highly connected individuals will participate. The.details of the case will not be, any more prurient than usual, but the position of the co-respon dents may iaye some weight in inducing the impartial and straightforward proprietors of our metropolitan journals to omit all allusion to it. FIGARO, however will do his duty. ' BOWEN, nicknamed the Sleepy Hollow of Queens land, is likely to remain in its comatose condition, judging by present indications. The tradesmen won't support the local newspaper, and a Masonic Syndicate of a few of the leading nobs appear to be putting their iSeads together to boycott lesser trades men who will not kootoo to their almighty will. Bowen is the only place which would dream of being able to afford a boycotting organisation. Ohl there's a de^ of present woe in The Sleepy Hollow kn...

The Alleged Murdered Explorers. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 20 October 1883

Tie Alleged Mtoydered Explorers. Some of the "boys" have come into Normantoh from a-way back on the Buchanan River, and they generally discredit the reported murder of Messrs. Mac&nsh, Uhr, Eeadford and Kelly, by Northern Territory blacks. Heaven grant that their sup positions may turn out reliable, but I cannot help feeling very uneasy respecting these four; Giles, telegraph station master, seems, you will remember, to think that only one or two of the party have been killed. It must also be borne in mind, however, that the police party who went on trail to avenge the death of poor Operator Martin, reported meeting a very large body-1-quite 70-niggers, and surmised that these would be likely to come across Eeadford and his mates at about Attack Crpek. Then there are the grave fears held by Jack Brodie, who was up with'these very men one day later than they have been last seen by any other white man, as the reader will see by looking up the full report of the interview with ...

His features are benevolent, his complexion florid. His nose, in profile, resembles a miniature boomerang in shape-being well adapted . above the bridge as a safe niche for spectacles, and having the appearance at the tip, of being constantly stroked and pulled downwards. Taken also in profile, the shape of his he^from the crown of his forehead to the spinal process ihi^ase of the skull, seems as perfectly and evenly foinned'&s a quadrant. His locks are scant and white ; and sparse beard and whiskers of similar hue fringe his face. His gait is feeble, his demeanour self-concentrated and reverently reliant, while his face lights up, when engaged in " healing," with a s...
