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

Chapter III. I pass over many things. In life we always do. Sometimes things pass over us. Life is really a passover. Tbey had a festival once, called the Passover. Life is a festival, figurative, metaphorical. G-o into the figure, the metaphor, or pass over. What is happiness? To get what you want. That is all. John wanted Molly. He got Molly, therefore he was happy. That is true. Hebrews have two tenses—=the past and the future. Joy is past. He brews sorrow. The wise man starts at the sound of bliss. We are not born for lasting happiness. Has not day an end? Ask the Western hill. Has not Griffith an end ? Ask the North. Stones don't lie—unless on the ground. The Westers, hill lies over there. When on the ground, the Hill of the West did it too« But all-things end. That is enoughJ John's happiness is over; " Yah, hah! yah, hah 1 Lettee go, Mollee. Yah, hah ! yoh, hoh, hah !" (Continued on jaaye 856.) The Amorous Chinaman. (Continue i from page 853.) Is not the language of sorrow si...

"Right Side Up with Care." [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 28 November 1885

"Right Side Up with Care." At Thursday Island, police, matters are conducted in a mightily particular fashion. The other day, the Thursday Island police received the following freight note:— "Please receive, in good order and condition, from hulk,' Star of Peace,' three prisoners." !!! Comment would spoil this. ■» ■ ; A. Blitz, stationer, bookseller, &c., Townsville, is, I venture to assert, a happy man, and contented with his lot. If not, then appearances are, in this instance, more than usually deceptive, for the expression of his classic countenance, as he smokes his hoot ah in side his shop-door, and gazes at the Chinese board ing house over the way with a dreamy eye, is suffi cient to make a casual observer mentally exclaim, " Here sits contentment personified/' There are bad people in Townsville, as elsewhere, however, who woul 1 consider it almost a crime to omit taking ad vantage of a fellow being's happiness, and who would feel intensely gratified at being instrumen...

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

Newspaper Heroism. The Brisbane Observer is valiant in denouncing the social sins of the absent and the weak. The beaye journal this week contributes its mite to the con troversy between the departing Sala and the Torick Club. Absolutely ignorant of the real facts of the case, the valiant editor passes sentence on Sala, now that his face is fairly turned for home, and his badfc upon Australia, and with exquisite taste denounces the man as a " literary gudgeon, once mistaken for a trout, and a red-nosed penny-a-liner." Now the Observer man was one of the most obsequ ious toadies, cap-in-hand-interviewers of " the great man/' on his visit to Brisbane, and, whatever, be the merits of the dispute between him and the Yorick Club, Sala's merits, as a writer and journa list, remain pretty much as they were then ; certainly not affected by the rate of remuneration received " iii days not so very long gone by," or by the prismatic colors of his nose. One is tempted to ask—if there be so much...

The Amorous Chinaman. CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 28 November 1885

The Amorous Chinaman. Chapter i. It was gentle slope, the river ran below, there were heights above. Behold the evidences of order! First we have heights, then a slope, then the river. Nature is the mistress of method* The law of design is Divine. We cannot find first a river, then a elope, then heights. Not from our side. The other side is heterodox. Look at it from our side and you will always find heights, then a slope, and then the river. This river was the Barcoo. A great river, with its head in the hills and its feet in the far distant sands. It is an emblem of Western life, very muddy as far as we can see, and often very dry. Not so often dry though as Western men. • But to this river there was a slope. On this slope there was a garden. Beautiful cabbages, beautiful cauliflowers, beautiful carrots, grew there. Pause and admire the industry of man. 'Think of a cabbage seed. Think of taking a cover off a steaming dish! Man is the medium. Glory be to man! . In this garden there ...

Light and Darkness. (FOR FIGARO.) [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 28 November 1885

Light and Darkness. (Foe Figa.ro.) I mix in gay assemblies, Where voices soft and clear, Ring out in dreamy murmurs On my inattentive ear. I cannot join the laughter, As my heart would wish to do, For my head is always aching, And my eyes are heavy, too. I quickly look around me, And those who pass me by Don't know why I am silent, < Do not hear the inward sigb. For those I meet as strangers Think my life is like a stream, That has glided on as softly Just with ripples in between. But, ah ! they are mistaken, 'Tis more like unto the sea, Whose billows, wildly tossing, Sweep along so mournfully; In its calm and placid moments, When the blue sky smiles above Shedding sunshine on the waters, Like a smile from those we love. Then, then, 'tis like the visions • That have swept across my path, Like the flickering flames of fires Dancing on the homeward hearth; Then sinking down so quickly, As it lit the room around, And, grumbling, slowly, surely, Like a ruin to the ground j Bu...

Why Jacob Wept. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 28 November 1885

Why Jacob Wept. The following "Opinions of the Press on Kissing" relate to the text which tells as that " Jacob kissed Bachel and lifted up his voice and wept" :— If Rachel was a pretty girl, and kept her face clean, we can't see what Jacob had to cry about.— London Daily Telegraph. How do you know but that she slapped his face for him.—Ladies' Treasury. The cause of Jacob's weeping was the refusal of Bachel to allow him to kiss her again.—Noncon formist, The fellow wept because the girl did not kiss him. —Pall Mall Gazette. Jacob wept because Bachel told him to do it again and he was afraid to.-—Methodist Recorder. Jacob cried because she threatened to tell her mother.—Sunday Gazette. Jacob wept because there was only one Bachel to kiss.—Clerkeivwell News. He wept for joy because it tasted so good.—Jewish Chronicle. We think Jacob cried because -Bachel had been eating onions.*—British Standard. A mistake. Not his eyes but his mouth watered. | —Ladies' Chronicle. Our opinion is that...

Repel Boarders. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 28 November 1885

Repel Boarders. Sam Bickell has opened a new hotel at the Towers, containing an abundance of double and single bed rooms, baths, piano, and all that. But even so, Sam proposes to play Hamlet without the melancholy prince. He says :—" Summer Drinks of all kinds kept, but no ' hard tack' until the Licensing Board change their minds/' Fancy half-a-dozen drouthy miners adjourning to the Prince of Wales—the name of this Arcadia—and skaking for lemon squash! Lest those who take up their abode there be tempted to stay for ever, and decline to give less fortunate beings an opportunity to taste its delights, Sam has provided for such a contingency. He adds that "as good Cook as the Towers can show has been engaged, and he guarantees to turn out the boarders in tip-top condition/' In order, doubtless,, to afford ingress to the attenuated^ who have been awaiting their turn, all the Towerites should soon be in excellent con dition, if Sam can only retain that Cook. — *- — "Did you bring down my...

Our Own Coy Samuel. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 28 November 1885

Onr OWn Coy Samuel. Eyeryotte who has been in love, and we have all been in love once if not ofterier, knows the zest which is added io it by the well-played coyness of the shrinking maid. Consequently we can all sympathise with Norman ton and other Northern towns which tremble alternately in the throes of expectancy, hope, and dread in awaiting the pleasure of our own Samuel. , For our own Samuel is doing the shrinking maid lousiness, and he does it well. He means to make them happy—for what woman ever said " no" when the offer was a good one ?— but he does not want to sell himself too cheaply nor to throw himself into their arms till he has roused them to fever heat. They asked him to call upon them during his Northern picnic and he said he could not; they begged him to be merciful, and he referred them to mam—Mr. Dickson; they got on th'eir knees to him and now he relents. But still they are so humble that they will be glad to kiss the tip of his fingers, and think the hem of his...

Chubb's Safe. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 28 November 1885

Clmbb's Safe. A rather good-looking' orphan"; aged. 26, named Ellen Chapman, has been trying it on, with rather indifferent success, on Charley Chubb, solicitor of Ipswich, and his son, of the same profession, at Mackay. She produced a letter, bearing the indica tions of woe, purporting to be from her brother in Camberwell, England, informing her of the death of her father, and of his having bequeathed to son and daughter various cool thousands in money and property. Chubb, sen.; hereupon drew up a power of attorney, authorising his own brother in England to act in the matter. This being d.one, Ellen wanted an advance for the purchase of clothing, but Chubb wasn't on. He, however, introduced her to a linen draper, who supplied her with goods to thg value of a guinea. Chubb, jun., shortly after, visiting his dad, they compared notes on various matters, and found that they had both been imposed upon by the same syren. The old gentleman had got off the easiest though, as the young un h...
