A Word about the Slavies. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 27 October 1883

A Word about the Slavies. Br the way, talking1 about servants, everybody is always finding fault with their want of judgment and want of manners. And yet servant girls, reckless as they are, manage to find husbands. A -society belle who CQuld-be-proved to be half as careless as a servant girl is reputed to be, would sot find it easy to get a husband. Take a society young lady, for instance, who wouldn't manifest enough interest in hay plate to keep it out of the dusthole, and who was in the habit; like many a slavey of throwing a silver Bpoon or two away. Would any rich man care to mariy her ? He would not. He would naturally consider her indifference to the salvation of the silver indicative of other kinds of fatal and ex pensive carelessness, and keep away from her as a means of self-protection. He wouldn't care to work all his life to keep her in silver; he wouldn't be mean enough to foist a plated article on her, and he would be too high-toned to go out in the back yard every mo...

A Peep at the Shows. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 27 October 1883

A Peep at the Shows. Let tlie Bagpipes shrilly skirl Warlike airs-I heed them not. I am thinking of my girl, And the lovely eyes she's got. Let the Highlanders advance In the aioramic glare I am thinking of dear Nance, And her wealth of golden hair. What care I for warlike strife ? Or for Egypt's battlefields? I am thinking of my wife, And the broom she ably wields! Gifts are all distributed, And there's nary one for me ! Wonder if my wife's in bed ? Guess I'd better "clear" and see. * * * W. H, THOMPSON ha3 been continuing his Zulu-cum-Egypt War Diorama to good houseB. It isn't to be for a moment supposed that the gifts he distributes have had anything to do with the nightly filling of the pit, because I have noticed that it is the invariable custom for all those who don't happen to get winning numbers, to remark that the gifts are paltry and not worth acceptance. They go for high art and instruction, they do. Still, their regard for Thompson's sensitiveness is so great, that, when...

Buying Nw Guinea Lands. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 27 October 1883

Buying Nw Guinea Lands. I COMMENTED last week upon the bogus purchase, from non-proprietary New Guinea natives, of 15,000 acres of land, by Goldie and Cameron, on behalf of a syndicate. I strove to show that there is one good that can arise from the bringing into fashion such bogus purchases, viz., that the Home Government will be unable much longer to resist the indignant pressure that will be brought to bear upon them in favor of annexation. Last week I had not space to thoroughly ventilate the subject of bogus, purchases, and, therefore, I would take this opportunity of saying a few words of warning to those adventwous specula tors who may be thinking of following the example of G-oldie and Cameron. Whenever any civilised country takes possession of New Guinea, no one can hold land under such govern ment unless he be recognised as the proprietor or lessee of land by the administrative authorities. That theory is indisputable and self-evident. - Therefore, every, adventurer who pu...

The Fate of Waiter Clarke. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 27 October 1883

The Fate of Waiter Clarke. I HAVE received* a special wire from Willie A. F. Clarke, from G-lenroy station, 20th inat., via Palmer ville Telegraph Office^ 22nd inst. From this I learn that Willie Clarke left G-lenroy station last Saturday in company with Inspector Morrissett, who has been commissioned to inspect and report upon the back country taken up in the 0<k>k district, and which has been represented as being atocked--sa&eiently to fulfil the gequaeaentsTBTtRland laws. WSfie Clarke's presence with the expedition is, however, prompted by the inextinguished (and, in fact, inextinguishable) desire to ascertain for certain his lost brother Walter's fate. Willie Clarke is taking'with him a skilful black tracker named Jimmy, and has expressed his intention of following up the tracks of his dead brother from camp to camp, and seeing the affair right through. The route Willie has chosen will first take him through Hungerford's country, thence to Archer Eiver, and...

Football. THE SEASON OF 1883. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 27 October 1883

Football* THE SEASON OP 1883. ABOHFIBND.' Thh football season of 1883, although not a great one in its own way of play in the City of Brisbane, will alwayB bear a pleasant and merry association of the visit of the New South Wales Bugby players. As was the case in the previous year, the programme this season received a severe shock from this Bugby introduction in so much as during the months of July ana August no really first-class matches were played in the Queen's Park. Of course it could not be expected that Queens land footballers would be on an equal with the Sydney visitors unless they drilled up a little in the rougher rules. Whether we did right or wrong in making the game a Bugby gome for so long a time year, however, will remain a matter of argu ment and- opinion amongst our senior players. One step has been made in a direction that in 1884 will have its say, ana the formation of the Queensland Football Association, no matter upon what basis, will, to a 'certain extent, pla...

How Mick Stuck to the Cloncurry Ballot Boxes. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 3 November 1883

How Mick Stack to the Cloncurry Ballot Boxes. MICK Loans was the man selected to carry the Clon curry ballot-boxes, after the polling had closed, to G-eorgetown, It is not necessary to explain to the reader the well known fact that the Presiding Officer at ea^ph polling p'ace has to forward his ballot-box or boxes to the Re turning Officer, at the Central Polling place of his par ticular electoral district. For the Burke, the central polling place-the head-quarters of the Returning Officer -was Georgetown. And, as I said before, Mick ~ Logue, was the man deputed by the Cloncurry Presiding Officer, to convey the Cloncurry ballot-boxes over to Georgetown. Mick is a dashing bushmah and as true and plucky as they make men now-a-days. He accepted the charge and started for Georgetown. through a nigger-infested country, choosing a route vid Iffley station-a place on Spear Creek, about 100 miles from Normanton. Mick had bad luck.: He lost his horses and found himself hushed in a (to him) u...

The principal difficulty they couldn't get over was as to how! tliey were to address him. They didn't know exactly whether Stanton's title was " Your Excellency/' *' Your Grace;" or " My Lord." One enthusiastic churchman who was travelling by the same steamer ias His Lordship would insist upon calling Dr. Stanton, u Your Worship !

ON September 6th, a man named Richards, who was suffering from epilepsy, was sent to Zerbe's Hotel; Taroom, for medical treatment. He was a man of comfortable means, having oyer £600 in hiB possession. He was attended by a day nurse, and had at nights a male watcher to look after him. Notwithstanding this, he was, somehow, not exactly | the sort of guest that the publican and his wife cared about. Mrs. Zerbe was a woman of infinite resource. She had a friend in constable Wright. Mrs. Zerbe and constable Wright put their heads together and hit upon a brilliant idea. It was an idea worthy of the strategic genius of Lumley Hill, the political gym nast. What was it ? Listen. . On the 16th September, the epileptic Richards was "run in" as a lunatic, in direct opposition to medical advice. He was kept in the lock-up 14 days.
