Aquatics. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 11 July 1885

It is not, I fancy, generally known that Miss. Hanlan is almost as clever with the oars as her brother. But it is a fact, nevertheless, that at one time, she could hold her own with the champion. On the occasion of her brother's victory over Ross, Miss Hanlan challenged the defeated oarsman, and one   said that he was wise to decline the contest. An Italian paper, in describing the late sculling   match between Hanlan and Beach, seems to have got a little mixed. It explains that, as Hanlan "is a sort of giant," and Beach is a man of " small and mean appearance," the betting was on Hanlan.   Perhaps there was a slight confusion of persons in the reporter's mind. The Cleveland Bay Rowing Club has arisen from   its own ashes, and is now called the " Townsville Rowing Club' instead of the " Phoenix," as it ought to have been. Having made a spurt, the members will probably see that the Club progresses, and I expect to hear of challenges...

Maryborough Railway Stew. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 18 July 1885

Maryborough Railway Stew. The agitation about the Maryborough-Western railway has taken a tight grip of itself, and has pulled back on its haunches. The people of Maryborough have stopped to think, and when people stop to think, they generally begin to notice facts to which they were quite blind before. I am sensibly complimented to be r assured, on reliable authority, that this putting on the brake was the direct result of Figaro's recent articles ; and I am much gratified to hear that rabid hbtheadedness has cooled down into more sober channels of con sideration* Those who were formerly the loudest, at the street corners, in abusing the .Maryborough Chronicle, and in listening, to lies about Woodyatt, its proprietor, have proved as mild a.s milk on the platform. I hear that some bar and street gossips spread a report that Woodyatt wrote the articles and para-, graphs which appeared in Figabo. This is wholly and totally false. I have agents in the district, certainly, who supply me...

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 18 July 1885

A Saddleb's advertisement reads as follows:— "Mrs. Langtry, the Jersey Lily, is noted for "being one of the most beautiful women in the world, to gether with a splendid figure. She is also a grand horsewoman ; she rides on an inlaid doeskin-seated saddle, similar to those to be had at E. J. Barry's." This is altogether at variance with the usual effects of contrast, Mr. Barry, if yon mean that she is less beautiful when at a distance from the beautiful figure. There is a rumour in Eulo that " Her Majesty" is likely to receive an invitation before the beaks for having awarded a lady with the marks of a lemonade bottle as a slight memento of her esteemed affection. —[What docs this" mean, Ed.] At the Eulo Police Court, before three local J.J.P.'s, an arnusing ease of assault was heard. A married lady sued her brother-in-law's, "valuable, house keeper " for damages for assaulting her. The plain tiff alleged that nearly half a pound of her hair came out in consequence of the violent emb...

Dalby Boys' School. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 18 July 1885

Dalby Boys' School. Thus a correspondent:—There i^ustbe something rotten about the state of !the Dalby^Boys' School, to j need so many and sudden changes in the Head Mastership of that seminary. Within twelve ! months, be the same a little more orless, four men have been severally appointed to fill that billet, successively. The last removal was a man who seemed to suit the people all to pieces. Whether in school or church, or any other place, he seemed to be "all there." But now, he is not there ; but some where else—Enoggera, I am informed. Jfow, there are people who want to know, you know, what are the causes and advantages of so many hasty appoint ments and as hasty removals. It must be an expen sive affair to isomeone—each of these changes. Who pays the cost ? The Department or the teacher?- If the Department stands Sam, I think our Sam should show a good reason for the expense. If the teachers, I can only say,God help the poor fellows \" It will take them a year at least to re...

"No you Don't." [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 18 July 1885

" No you Don't.5' The Wasp Football Club, Brisbane, had a Smoke Concert the ether evening, which was well attended, and a very enjoyable programme was gone through. After the musical business was successfully accom plished, one of the members called for volunteers to be mesmerised. Several responded, and the most animo-magnetic being chosen, the mesmerist com menced operations. After an hour's manoeuvring, while the audience had rather a dull time of it, the professor announced his discovery that the thing was more difficult than he had imagined, and so it probably was, seeing that the subject (the magnetic, man) was as wide awake, and as vigilant as to his weather eye as ever. On the lower Warrego, a few days ago, a man named Fred. Hughes, formerly a resident of Dalby, had his leg broken by a kick from a horse. He has been progressing very well since. Henry Eichard Thompson, E.N. (he claims these two letters as part of his cognomen) has been com mitted for trial at Bundaberg for is...

Contemporaneous Accidents. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 18 July 1885

Contemporaneous Accidents. A trimmer named Robert Bell met with a shocking death on board the steamer ** Woonoona," off Botany Heads, on Monday, June 22nd. One of the sludge holes was suddenly forced open, and there was a rush of boiling water and steam into the engine-room, where were the two engineers and the unfortunate Bell. The former both escaped unhurt, but Bell, blinded and scalded by the steam, rushed the wrong way, and, being imprisoned in the engine-room, was literally boiled, his body, when recovered, being something horrible to look upon. At Gympie, on June 30th, as Mrs. Woolgar, of that town, was carrying a lighted candle through her house, she turned to speak to one of her children, when the candle set fire to a ruff which was round her neck. With the assistance of her husband, who happened to be at hand, she succeeded in getting the inflammable material torn off, but not before her throat and face were badly burned. A girl named Barbara H.oastf»s, residing on the JtL...

£40 a Week. Buckland, M.L.A., got <£40 a week for doing Ms Kanaka Commission work, and says he lost money by leaving his own business- to do it. Let's see, what's ,£40 " shixty j)er shent" of? If Habbakuk Ishmael, Esq., lent you a triflesh, ma tear, of £66 13s. 4d., and if he charged CO per cent, for-the. year ; at the end of 12 months you would have to pay .£106 13s.' 4d., gr just £40. . Well, if Habbakuk Ishmael, Esq., kept on lending £66 odd every week at 60 per cent., and lent in a year £3,466 13s. 4d„ he would earn an income of £40 a week. Well, that's not much—for a Jew, mind you! Besidefe,^abbakuk Ishmael, Esq., doesn't reckon 60 per cent, that way at all. No, matear.r He deals in round numbers* aiid his own discount princjples.

The Milk in the Cocoanut. So that was why Sani Griffith went junketing up to Townsville the other day I He had his eye on an approaching election. He sent up his underground mole, Jaeschke, to burrow about and to rally up the dodderils. ; He knew that he was going to give Townsville two additional Members—that is to say, to divide the present electorate, which returns one Member on^y, into two electorates—town and coun try, and to allow the town two Members, and the country part, or new electorate of Mulgrave, one Member j thus giving a- total of three Members where thei^e is at present, only one.
