Every Man his own Tuner. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 5 December 1885

Every Man Ms own Tuner. Up to the present, the amateur who has either, from the fact of his being located far from the busy haunts of man, or from a desire to spare his purse, undertaken to tune his own piano, has been some thing like the man who is his own lawyer, and has, i consequently, a fool for his client. The amateur, armed with a portentous tuning key, sets about putting his piano into thorough tune. Alas, he never arrives at that desired consummation. After partially dislocating his wrist, and driving his family to temporary frenzy, he is compelled to abandon the vain attempt, and the last stage of that piano is worse than the first. But Messrs. John Brinsmead and Sons have, per favor of Messrs. H. J. Pollard and Co., changed all that, and the average amateur, whose ear is not a mere leathern conveniency for the reception of sound, but a fairly delicate organ, can tune his piano to a hair, and without misery to either himself or his friends. I, Figaro, have seen the thing w...

A Gladstone Bottle of Smoke. - A very amusing row has been going on up at Gladstone, between W. H. Rogers, manager of the Calliope station, and Hugh Neil, a Divisional Boardsman. It appears that a licensed gate and two chains of fencing, which had been erected on a road through Brass Filings Selection, were pulled down by some person or persons, whose identity, up to date of latest advices, had not been positively established. W. H. Rogers had the following advertisement in serted in the Gladstone Observer:— * " FIVE POUNDS REWARD. & mHE above REWARD will be paid for SUCH Jl INFORMATION as will LE AD to the CON VICTION of the contemptible individuals who RE MOVED the LICENSED GATE and TWO CHAINS of FENCE on the road through Brass Filings Selec tion.

Getting Even with Him. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 5 December 1885

Getting Even with Him. A certain commercial traveller,/whom I. will call Mr. , and who represents a Southern firm that deals largely in goods of its own manufacture, has a habit of continually adopting little ruses to dis parage the goods of other firms, and is a champion blowhard. The other day found Mr. : up at * Bundaberg. He put up at a hotel where was staying a brother bagman, who knew him well and had been " had" by him on a previous occasion. I will call this gentleman Mr. Simplex. Well, as I said before, Simplex had been " had " by and he was,determined,if possible, to be "even" - with him. went about his business for the day, while Simplex, who had punished out his rounds, remained at home out of the heat. Tea time came, and the festive board Avas soon faced by hungry men. Mine host was there and both bag men were there. An idea entered into the head of Mr. ——— directly he saw that mine host was in the room'. He would abuse the tea. Presently the table was startled by a sud...

A Store at Cambridge Gulf. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 5 December 1885

A Store at Cambridge Gulf* The prospectus has "been issued of the Cambridge Gulf Pioneer Co., which is to be formed for the pur pose of providing steam communication between Port Darwin and Cambridge Gulf, and of starting a store on Cambridge Gulf for supplying surrounding stations and the public generally, and for the acqui sition of land in suitable portions for agriculture and townships. Cambridge G;ulf is the natural and best Cutlet to the Kimberley District, which has alteady seven stations and a settled population that cannot get supplies with any regularity at present. Their nearest store is at Port Darwin, with which they halve no regular communication; so they are left to the chance of passing vessels, which charge exorbitant freight. The proposal is to buy a small launch to carry freight or passengers, to run between the Gulf and Port Darwin.^ The launch would also be made avail able for the transhipment of stock from large steamers to the shore, and could be still further...

CHAPTER VI. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 5 December 1885

Chapter VI. Far in the West lives a man known for his reckless daring. Single-handed he has fought against whole armies of nj^[uitos who sought his blood, that blood which $ie his race ever has done. With the same old pride he^rides round the fence daily and thinks 1:Imself lucky to have escaped being wed to the daughter of a squatter. " It was her tears as done it," he says, when he condescends to tell the tale, " Blow me if they wasn't baiter than that there junk." On Powier's run all is happiness. The Jackaroo has come into his inheritance of 30s. a week, and has married the fair and substantially "built Mabel. A gold frame now surrounds the stain on the verandah floor which was caused by Mick's nose on that eventful Christmas Day. A quaint legend placed there by Mabel's broad palm surmounts it, and these are the words of the inscription— Beriajd "Wil Tel.

CHAPTER V. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 5 December 1885

Chapter V. A loud laugh rang out to the cloudy sky, and came echoing back over the almost criminal waste of waters which, unchecked by dam, was hurrying on its downward course. It was Mick who laughed. " Come on, my Silvertail," he shouted, with super cilious haughtiness, " if you want to see what blood will do." Mounting the horse, he rode it to the bank of the river. Once only did the bright steel flash in the air, the spurs went in and came out spotted with crimson. For a second time on this Christmas day, blood told. The good steed took to the water as though born to it, and carried its rider safely to the further side. Waving his hand ironically, Mick - disappeared just as Mabel threw, herself into her rescuer's arms. "Mypreserver," she whispered. " You are real jam, darling," replied the Jackaroo; "what could I do, save preserve you ?" " And to think that rshould have dreamed of preferring the bark humpy of yonder high-born villain to the gilded mansion of my humble father," s...

Merciful to his Moke. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 5 December 1885

Merciful to his Moke. A broth of a boy, residing on a station not far from the. Richmond River—I will call it Tarbrush—had occasion to go to a neighbouring station, the other day. There is no water on that road, so he filled a water-bag, saddled a horse, mounted, and shoved along. After doing about half the journey, liis nag shewed signs of fatigue, whereas, the man, who is not long out from the Ould Sod, wanted to push on. He pondered awhile, and at last said—• > " Begob, but mebbe the harse has too much weight on it. Let me see if I can lessen it ? Faix, I have it. I'll drink as much wather as me belly'll held and PI pour out the rest on the ground!" Which he did. But he pulled through, neverthe less. • - +-Z • Dr. Sparks, Townsville, has sold his yacht, " The Dot," to a party of beche-de-mere fishers.

Blood Will Tell. A Condensed Novel. Chapter I. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 5 December 1885

Blood Will Tell. A Condensed Novel* Chapter I. Reclining lazily in a hammock, which stretched between two posts of the verandah, was a young girl, with a form as substantially built as was the house. The walls of the mansion were composed of boards, and she was bored—that was all the difference. The walls were plural—she was singular; and very singular she looked swinging there, with her feet extended over each side of the hammock, and gazing over the garden, in which a rose bush and two geraniums were trying to grow. Beautiful she was, as, doubtless, would have been the Il 1 -i ■- '1 T 1 rose had there been one on the bash; and, to judge from her appearance, Mabel v Power, though she was only the daughter of an honesty industrious squatter, might have been the child of a proud and haughty roustabout. And what is this lovely girl meditating upon ? Are her thoughts about the sheep which her father is mustering on this Christmas Day ? I trow not. t<et us listen-to that murm...

Droving. A Drover's Responsibility—The Trip Completed—The Cattle Delivered. [Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 5 December 1885

See " DROVING," page 917. Droving. By Peter Bunkum. A Drover's Responsibility—The Trip Com pleted—The Cattle Delivered. CContinued.) ^ Again I compare the drover to the sailor, and this time as regards the responsibility of each. The captain of a ship must be always careful, always on the alert, always ready for any emergency. He may cross the ocean a thousand times, he may weather the most frightful storms, and bring his vessel safe to port. For years and years, voyage after voyage, he makes without mishap, but, at last, in over-confidence he neglects some trifling precaution, or makes some slight mistake in his calculations, and in a moment a noble vessel's wrecked, a fair reputation blasted, and a gallant,, sailor, for that one fault, if he escape from a watery grave, does so only to find himself dishonored, his certificate cancelled or suspended, and the world's cold shoulder turned towards him. But still the captain has one chance, a fair and honest enquiry is held, and the mis...

Chapter III, At one o'clock Mr. Power returned to the house accompanied by the young man to. whom he wished to give Mabel. . . " Wft deserve a nip after all that/' said the elder man. " Which shall it be first ? Bum or Mabel ? " And the heir to30s. a-week, replied with strange im petuosity, The Rum." Was he afool ? He was a newchnm and all newchums are idiots, therefore, he was an idW. This is logic, and precious time was being wasted. It was otherwise with the more precious liquor. Both men drink the hot fiery liquid which seems to put new life into the young man. " Where is thq pretty one ? " he asks. ".Why is she not here ? Old man/' he adds, hissing the words through his fang-like teeth, " you have not deceived me ? Ah! what Wave we here ? " and he points with trembling finger to the stain on the verandah floor. The squatter starts like an overseer when he hears a dingo. " It is, it is," he. scream8 in agony, " the gore which flows in the blue veins of Mick the boundary rider. L...

Who is Mick ? He is a boundary rider, and adored by Mabel. With the figure of the god Apollo, and the tawny appear ance of a lion, he resembled Apollyon in many ways. With the indomitable will of hie race, he scorned the puny efforts of Mabel's father, who was imbued with that stubborn obstinacy peculiar to his class, and who wished to wed his. daughter to a young Jackaroo, who was the heir toa baronetcy and 30s. a we%< Who would win the day P Let the tale develop, attid we shall learn.

The Czar of Brisbane. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 5 December 1885

The Czar of Brisbaue, I rather like Beattie for some tilings. He's always got the courage of his convictions, but some of those convictions are enough to make common men smile. The latest of Beattie's convictions comes from, the Hadmiral as " boss " of the Traffic Board, and is in the shape of a denial of 'bus license to one Mansfield, because, forsooth, Beattie doesn't think another 'bus is needed on the Hamilton Eoad. Jee-whitteker! If that isn't pure and simple "gall," I'd like to know what is. Beattie actually wauts to play the czar in Brisbane, and "will be telling us next at what hour we are to get home of nights. I'd like to know what ^business it is of Beattie, or the Traffic Board, or any other authority, how many 'buses run to Hamilton or to heaven. I rather fancy that the man who thinks there's money in it is the right man to decide that, especially if he's willing to plank down his little pile and try it. But the .notion that Beattie or anybody else, who've been appointe...
