A Real Remedy. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 28 November 1885

A Real Remedy. There was a little episode in the Supreme Court, on Friday last, which points a moral. Lawyer Real was :" stiffly" cross-examining a witness named Crumple, when the witness com menced giving " back-talk." After some dispute the Judge threatened to commit Crumple for con tempt if he didn't behave himself, and "behave" it waB. This little episode reminds me that the way lawyers are permitted to run the Courts and insult witnesses, is as' much a disgrace to modern juris prudence as even the fact of the lawyers' existence. A witness is badgered, his utterances twisted and turned inside out, Ms assertions denied, the lie direct given, and no one intervenes, but if the witness gets " riled" and refuses to stand this sort of thing, he is threatened with imprisonment. This is no idle assertion, I have heard it myself a hundred times, we have all beard it, at least any man who has been in a court of justice, for half-an hour. I have seen witnesses who'are shy and frightened, j...

The Lessons We Forget. [COMMUNICATED]. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 28 November 1885

The Lessons We Forget. [communicated] . While I don't take stock in everything that is said of teachers, yet I do , not think that a child must necessarily be a liar, or parents as necessarily gulls. I believe that there is very much cause for the general dissatisfaction expressed at the present school system, more especially in regard to its aims, its long hours, unreasonable home lessons, and unwise discipline. In the first place I very much doubt the sense of the modern curriculum. Children are "crammed," they do not learn, they get a smattering of all things and a thorough insight into none, and nine-tenths of what they learn they forget in a year after they begin practical life. . I^bn't *nind betting that not even Morehead can read off a chapter of Livey or ten lines of Homer, he would stick on the first problem of the first book of Euclid, not to mention the '' Pons Asinorum," and would' die if his life depended on his giving the date of the battle of Spurs. So much is left w...

"Are ye there, Moriar-i-tee." [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 28 November 1885

"Are ye there, Moriar-i-tee." Ifc was District Court time at Mackay—Nov. 11th last. A jury was being empanelled. " Joseph Carr," sang out the crier. , "Right ye are! yer Hanner," shouted out a | sprightly voice from outside the precincts of the court, | " yer can Just bet yer boots I'll be therea ss oon as I'veput down another." A minute after, a dilapidated individual, with staring eyes, and a wild air, burst into the court, singing, "I am here, Moriaritee !" This was the required juryman! His Honor promptly had him removed in custody. Carr was brought before the court at the end of the Criminal Sittings, when he was ordered to make a written apology, and his fees as a summoned juryman were estreated. Then he meandered cut in search of the fiend that had so literally placed him "out of Court." His Honor remarked that, in future, he would deal severely with- amy juryman who paid so much devo tion to Bacchus that he could not attend to his legal duties ; ■■ "" + A Thursday Island Cor...

Pedestrianism. The half-mile running match between Malone, of > Sydney, and O'Brien, of Victoria, was decided on the 7th instant, in Melbourne, when Malone won by 15 yards. On November 9th, the Nerang Athletic Sports Committee held a day's sports in Nerang. The meeting was a decided success. The Nerang people turned out in great force, and visitors came from Southport and .the outlying districts. There were, in all, sixteen events, and the club gave away about i>40 in prizes. The great event of the day was the Nerang Grand Handicap, which was won by J. Julius, R. J. Ilealy, second. B. J. Carmody, first, and Gr. Hather. third, being, disqualified.

Msr Dearest Kittie,— Vc have had some more rain—psbaw ! you will say, we'd had a mouthful of it—but I'll bet you never appreciated it. I do. It came down the other night in bucketfuls. Our tank had run dry that very afternoon, and Charley was getting ready to carry water in pails from a neighbor's on the next street corner who has the city water. Charley hates carrying. It was 10 o'clock and still he delayed. First, he wanted to finish his pipe; then he wanted supper first; then he proposed we should wait till next morning. "Not much, old boy/' said I; "next morning means me bunting round looking for a Chinaman to do it, so you'd better accept your fate and go now." Just as he got up groaning we heard a sighing. " What's that ?" said Charley. Neither of us knew, so he got into his boots and grabbed th...

Aquatics. The sailing match which had been arranged to take place "between the two 22 ft., half deck boats, Edith and Annie, came off on Saturday, and result ed in a very close race, the Annie ultimately winning by 35 seconds. She actually came in 1 minute, 35 seconds, ahead of her opponent; but the Edith had the usual time allowance of 1 minute, for difference of one foot in length. The course was from the Sail ing Club's sheds, at the Hamilton; round the black buoy below- Lytton, and was covered in 2 hours, 24 minuter.

An Unclaimed Manuscript. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 28 November 1885

: W T~ Ail Unclaimed Manuscript, On returning to my office, after luncheon, one day last week, my office boy said:— "Please, Sir, a gent connected with the Press, just out from England, and on his way from Sydney by the Burwah to Maryborough, has just called to see you,* he sat and waited half-an hour for you and said he was sorry he couldn't wait no longer. He hadn't got no card, as it was packed up in 'old of the ship, and I'v£ forgot his name, sir." This was aggravating, and I have no better clue now than I had then to his identity, except the rather faint one of three leaves, apparently torn out of a pocket book, and left on the old worn-out sofa in the office. These indicated that the writer, who ever he was, sailed from England in September, by the Chusan, whose skipper, judging from some of the notes, must have taken a devious course to reach his destination, as they point to events that could only have happened in countries lying far out of the beat of Australian bound steam...

The Gold Cup was won by Minerva, the 5 year old mare who ran so forward in the Melbourne Cup, and was handicapped at Wagga to carry 6st 121b; the result was almost a certainty, which accounts for the small field at the post. The winner is by Maribyrnong, out of Aconite's dam, Arnma, and has occasionally raced very well, her victories last season amounting to five, out of. twenty-two starts.

The Wallaby Scalper. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 28 November 1885

The Wallaby Scalper. Ia the fur Western wilds, and the semi-civilized regions of the North, a class ^ of men is often met whose love of the wild bush life induces them to take up their abode in those regions, braving many vicis situdes and hardships consonant with their vocation and their isolation, but still with that love of the wilds, inherent in the nature of all true bushmen. I allude to the wallaby scalper. Truly their love of this life of loneliness is to be wondered at, barred out as they are from all the comforts and pleasures of the frequenters of towns. Consideration of this recalls the saying, that "the man who is delighted in solitude is either a wild beast or a god." But this class of men are, as a rule, exceptions to either states mentioned herein, partaking somewhat of the nature of the wild beast, inasmuch as their whole lives may have been spent far away from any community, and this love of solitude, then, must naturally spring herefrom, and is but. as '•'second na...
