Military and Naval Ms. I' ■ • M ■ .. - — Officers in command of Defence Force or Volun teer Companies,- and Privates of any corps, afre in vited to forward any memoranda of general interest relating to Defence or Volunteer doings, for inser tionin this column. Personal Anecdotes and reminiscences will also be highly acceptable. The Brisbane Ambulance Corps is now in full swing, tinder the able instruction of Dr. Marks. The uniform issued a short time ago consisted of a blue-cloth patrol jacket, frogged on the breast with black braid; black double Austrian knot and red | cross badge on sleeve, and red collar, ornamented I nicely with black braid. Hooks and eyes are used for fastening, instead of buttons. The forage cap is very neat and plain; the trousers are of blue cloth, with the regulation red stripe—Spencer and Pitt, of South Brisbane, were the makers. I may mention that very handsome military helmets, with fittings complete, are being ordered. Dr. Marks has distributed swords, ...

A Smart Lad [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 21 November 1885

A Smart Lad *' Is an article ever a noun ?" Asked Jack of Ms teacher one day. The teacher said "Ho," with a frown, And told him to go out and play. To go playing the lad was'nt willing, But said, "When near Finney, Isles' store— " Every Article here for a shilling" On a placard I saw near the door. " That the article there is a noun" (And for shame he now let his voice drop) " I will bet you a bob to a crown, *' So I've got you just now on the hop."

The Servant-gal Difficulty. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 21 November 1885

The Servant-gal Difficulty. " Put About" details a grievance with which I fully sympathise. By the steamer Bulimba, which arrived in Bris bane, the other day, there were 44 of the Brisbane immigrants classed as " single women." Out of that number, some went to their friends ; 5 were brides elect who had been sent for by their " young men and others were married. Only 9 out of the 44 took situations. It is doubtful whether even these will keep them. One lady engaged one at a high wage. At the end of a week, the girl said that the work was too hard, and she did'nt think she'd stay. She added that it did'nt matter much anyway, as she only intended to stay a week or two, and then meant to join her husband (I did'nt know " single women" had husbands) on a selection he had taken up. The girl (or woman) knew absolutely nothing about domestic work, except what she had picked up in the employ of the lady I speak of, during the week referred to. So she was told she could go. And she went. " P...

Wanted a Bath. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 21 November 1885

Wanted a Bath. Land Speculation lias been, and continues to be a very profitable business in Townsville. Some for tunate individuals in that locality have made their pile within the last couple of years, through invest ing capital in land, and very few residents of the Australian 'Frisco but possess the title deeds of at least a couple of allotments. But there are other elements out of which a dividend might be extracted besides terra firma. Would it not pay a private firm to erect public baths at Cleveland Bay, and thus confer a boon on the inhabitants, and prevent the risky consequences which at present attend a dip in the briny ? The lives of several lads have been lost by contact with stingarees, and in addition, persons are prohibited, under penalties, from bathing along the beach during daylight. So that folk are obliged to be content with a shower bath, in lieu of an in vigorating plunge in the salt water. The Townsville Corporation have " gassed " about this matter over and ...

John Flynn, who was convicted of " applying a destructive substance," at the Criminal Sittings on Monday [last.r was sentenced to four years' penal servitude. iPlynu, it will be remembered, was arrested in the beginning of last month for putting a little boy, named Sydney Redwood, into a box of lime, whereby he was severely burnt. # # # The Pialba whale has only yeilded forty-five gal Ions of oil, after all.

Government Contracts Again. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 28 November 1885

Government Contracts Again. I have no hope of the administration of the Works Department keeping straight as long as the pre sent party is in power. " To be good to our friends," could not be the principle of a party that intended to run straigl t. But I shall show up every job as it occurs, so, that when the bad times come, people will Tcnow what has brought them on us—where the money has gone. If they don't, they can turn over 'a file of Figabo, and they will find jobs exposed amounting to a loss of some hundreds of thousands in the aggregate. 'One of the Latest Jobs I have got hold of, is the letting of a contract for the construction of a number of ballast-waggons for the work now going on between Brisbane and Ipswich, privately, no tenders being advertised for. Why was this done ? Why, every one knows as well as I do, that it was done because, if tenders had been called for in the regular course* the man who was intended to get the job might not have been the lowest tenderer, o...

Religion in the Schools. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 28 November 1885

Religion in the Schools. Queensland welcomes Bishop Webber and so does , Fioabo. ! Not, as the Courier would persuade us, because Queensland loves the English Church more than Bhe' does the Scotch Church or the Roman Catholic Church. or the Methodist Church, but because his arrival is pleasing /to those who believe that religion should go hand-in-hand with progress. For he is a good man, this new-chum Bishop! A man who has walked in the face of the world fear lessly and blamelessly; a man who has. honored the Church as much as the Church has honored him j a man who has not lagged behind while the world was moving, but who has studied the Christian morality as a thing which adapts itself to the ages, and not as a thing which clings to torchlight when the world wants gas. For I say—and I don't have to play the hypocrite in saying it—that we are all interested in the pre servation of religion, in the maintenance of the creed of our fathers. I say, as I have always said, that to throw r...

CHAPTER IV. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 28 November 1885

Chapter IV. A brother man grieves. Bow low and be reverent now. Love has died. His day-dreams are dispelled. Hope's sweet illusions are shattered. John's mild face winces at the terrible picture. His wife has the will to lick him, and can do it. Friend, have you ever realized that ? Mad eyes to burn you, clenched fists to smite you, broom-handles, rolling-pins, and miscellaneous crockeryware to pursue your retreat ? If you have, keep it to yourself. We all know what it is. Many, and it is as sure as measles. But my hero did not read Figaeo, and was consequently ignorant of phil osophy, yet this is not to be laid to him as a crime. I trust the day is far off when the State will compel everyone to read Figaro. People cannot be made virtuous by Act of Parliament. You could make them buy Figaro, but then I might be put by. If a State religion is founded, I would like indeed to see Figabo the text-book. But compulsion is the parent of invasion, and suasion, not evasion, is Figaro's persu...
