It is "bounce" pure and simple. It holds in some of the United States, and one case (because of a bad lawyer) was actually carried at a place called Gawler* in South Australia. But that was a fluke and it's not solid to go upon. There is not a more slipshod law in Queensland than that under which newspapers are supposed to work. The extract you've got , has been about five years in these colonies in various' papers. It arrived in Australia via San Francisco. Where it came from originally, I can't say. But I've seen it...

The Wheels. ^ •' - if' . '1' V ;T£ Those members of the B.B.C, viz., Messrs. Mark well, Stombuco, Cumming, Coutts (2), and Hayes, who visited Warwick on the 9th November, have no reason to complainof their trip, as the courtesy and attention bestowed on them by the Sports' Com mittee and the Warwick cyclists will long be re membered. On their arrival on the Saturday they received a hearty welcome, and on Sunday a pleasant run to the Bald Mountain took place, the proprietor of the local hostelry, Davie Thompson, making .their stay a pleasing one indeed. At the sports on the Monday, they were the guests of the committee at dinner, at which the toast of " The Visitors" was warmly received. Ted Markwell, in responding, paid a high compliment to those residents of "the City of the Dead through whose instrumentality such a fine track had been formed. In the evening the visitors were entertained at a banquet at Dinte's Commercial Hotel, by the Warwick Bicycle Club, Mr. A Morgan occupying t...

Aquatics. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 21 November 1885

Aquatics. A race will take place this (Saturday) afternoon, between the sailing boats Annie and Edith, for £5 a side. Each has already beaten the other, and both are smart boats, so that considerable interest is taken in the coming'event. " Pig." has been taken to task in that certain statements have been made which are not facts. 1 have spoken to my jib-boom reporter on the sub ject, and he tells me he can't walk Queen-street and see from the Town Hall, which particular boat first sets her balloon jib, or reefs her mainsail. He has to rely on such information as he gets. If the yacht clubs want their proceedings to be properly chron icled, I shall send a man who knows, provided, he gets a show, and may judge for himself. A sciilling match took place in Eoss Creek, Townsville, on the 31st. ult. between W. M. Fair land and W. E.. Phillips, for a trophy valued at two guineas. They both had coxswains, and used the sister skiffs "Rose" and "Shamrock," recently pur chased from the Rockha...

It is not recorded of Mr. Pickwick that he ever wore a helmet, but, barring that item, " 'tis passing strange" I seem to gaze upon the benevolent feature&of Sam Weller's master—spectacles and all—whenever :J look upon his Lordship's smiling face, and his amiability of manner, and natural kindness of heart, fosters the delusion. | Dan Bijpp#,' $ Btarcoo ,pibriieer, tand lately part' proprietor of Delta station, has become a real live auctioneer at Blackall.

Tattersall's Cup. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 21 November 1885

Tattersall's Cup. I. A. Phillips, of the Metropolitan Hotel, Brisbane, has offered a Tattersall's Cup, to be ran for at the Tattersall's Race Meeting, which will be held at Eagle Farm,on Separation Day next, December 10th The cap arrived in Brisbane on Wednesday week. I have no hesitation in saying that it is the premier trophy of the kind that Australia has ever seen. It excels the Melbourne Cup, rich and elaborate as that trophy is, and it reminds English sportsmen of the rare plate offered at the aristocratic Ascot meeting. It was made in London; indeed, it is doubtful | whether such marvellous workmanship could have been perfected in the colonies. It cost Phillips justi 100 guineas, ao per contract, bat he received with it a polite note announcing that, if he wants another, he must pay £120 for it. The trophy stands nearly 3ft. high. It is of silver, gilt here and there according to the artistic fancy of the designer. It weighs 118 ounces, and is mounted on a base of ebony. The ...

A Drought Picture. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 21 November 1885

A Brought Picture. A correspondent, whose friend started 4 months ago to bring cattle from the Warrego to the Logan, confirms the melancholy accounts I am receiving on all hands, about the present terrible condition of that country. "As bare of grass as a Brisbane street/' is a very frequent phrase in bush letters coming to my hands. The correspondent of whom I now speak, tells how, when his friend's camp was visited, his friend was found small-tooth-combing the lice out of his horses, which were overrun with ; the pests named. All the hair had had to be cut I off the horses' tails. My correspondent says :—" I have read with interest, your articles on 4 Droving.' 1 think what I have told you would make a graphic , picture, as representing a drover's camp in time of drought. The horses themselves are spectres to look at—bones sticking out, no hair on their tails, and insect-ridden. A few bullocks, propped up with forked sticks, would add considerably to the sug gestiveness of such a ...

Thursday, Nov. 12. The Speaker announced that he had issued the writ for . The Musgrave Election, N and the House then refused to accept the amend ment, Sammy shrewdly insisting on confining the discussion to the right of the Council to amend Money Bills. M 'IIwraith, having vainly tried to get a discussion on the merits of the question itself, did not oppose the Premier's motion. At 8.35 the House re-assembled to hear that the Council still insisted on its amendment, and that A Dead-Lock had Occurred, but adjourned without doing anything after Sammy j had suggested a special joint committee.
