Jimmy of the wonder ful yarns has "slipped," and is no. more recognised as the Bauanaland King ; Jack Howe has been super seded, and to-day his name is seldom mentioned where shearer men do gather ; and now the "Queen" has fallen upon evil days. Many a "cheq ued p" shearer, journeying to Eulo to try his wits against those of the reigning diety, left a sadder, poorer and a wise man. For it is recorded of the lady in question that, aided by her undeniable charms of form and face, she remorselessly "ran the rule' over all and sundry.
