The Old, Old Seat. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 17 November 1883

The(Wd,1)iid Sea#? BY LOWELY STILL. ! I loved it, I loved it, and who dared bleat Reproof cos I loved so my old, old seat ? I'd nobbled it long by election cries, - I had earned it with froth, I had bought it with lies : JTwas bound by log-rolling bands to my heart, And I thought these must break before I would part* From the dignity and the honor sweet, That were mine while I held the old, old seat. In Session-time, I lingered near That hallowed seat-my proper sphere} And thought what coin some fellows would give To speak from that seat, or to vote on a div.; To them such fame could never betide, As long as elections were cut and were dried. Oh ! such was the tale I'd daily repeat, As I put up again for my old, old seat. I talked on the stump for many a day, To all that they wanted I promised 'em," Yea!" And they seemed to worship me when I smiled. And never showed sign they were getting riled; Days rolled on, when the lost one sped, My idol was shattered, my hopes had fled; I lear...

The Wheels. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 17 November 1883

The Wheels. An advertisement in the London papers announces the forma tion of " The Cyclists* Accident Assurance Company, Limited." This is a splendid chance for beginners on the bicycle to acquire an annuity, or to get decently buried in cases of fatal accidents, but I'd prefer not to be a shareholder, thank you.

Aquatics. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 17 November 1883

Aquatics. SPEAKING of Hanlan, the New York correspondent of the Sporting Life says:-" Hanlan's goings on are quite too funny for anything. The high-moral-toned sculler whose great object now is-so he says-to purge professional rowing of even the appearance of evil, is giving us some specimens of how he would manage professional rowing. First of all to go back to. the Hanlon-Boss race. After it was all over, the parties met at Mr. Wiser's, Prescott, and Hanlon there announced that, after consultation with his friend and adviser, Mr. Davis, he had decided to refund one-third of the stakes (666 dols.) to Ross, and to this was added 150 dols. by those present. If I mistake not, his old backer-who turned out to be Walton, the plunger -hiding behind a convenient Mr. Johnson, put up the stakes for the Prescott race, and now we have Hanlan consulting with Mr. Davis, who no one knows now as a backer of the champion, and giving up a third of 2,000 dols. stake money, Now, if any man knows of N...

Rutledge's Chances. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 17 November 1883

Bntledge's Chances. I WENT into Cooper's hotel the other evening and there met a couple of Charters Towers men, old churns of mine-they used to work at the 40-mile in my time. At this particular juncture it may be instructive to reproduce the gist of our " yarn." My friends, I must tell you, were going south to knock down the cheques they had won on Rutledge's success, and when I enquired how the stakes went, I was told that the winnings came on through the influence of the Orange Lodges which placed Rutledge at the head of the poll! This is the way the cat jumped. A number of "books" wore opened giving 2 to 1 that Lissner would head the list. Observe, now. When once a man had taken the odds to a few pounds it paid him well to " jack up " work and become an active canvasser. Tom Mills, again, of the " Day Dawn," imagines that he has lost £80,000 by some decision of the Mining Courts and that Griffith will, of course, at once "stump up" the amount. He (Tom) worked very hard, and spar...

Now, my notion of the crowd is that it is very much the same old ministry over again as regards Griffiths' lot, barring Dntton, of whom I know little beyond the fact that his land law theories are opposed to his own party. I have a word to say about Sheridan. He has a gift of "pluck," for which I admire him. Sheridan has accepted the peculiar position of general adviser to the Government, in other words, a 1 Minister without a portfolio. I pray that he may em ploy his experience ...

Is Dancing Wicked? [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 17 November 1883

Is Dancing Wicked ? THERE is a wide spread feeling amongst young ladies that no girl can waltz with any comfort, unless she is supported with a firm pressure in the region of the waist. It is a mistake that the sex of the person exciting this pressure is of any consequence in the mind of the waltzer. She does not care anything about young men under any circumstances-but she needs to be supported in order to be able to waltz. A girl's arm is not strong enough to yield the desired support, and hence there is no satisfaction in waltzing with other girls. What she wants is support, and not a young man, and if she could obtain the former without the latter she would. be perfectly contented. This opinion has been so forcibly and freely expressed by countless young ladies, when reproached with their alleged desire to waltz with young men, that I cannot have the slightest doubt that it is strictly true. Young men, when practising the waltz step, occa sionally clasp a light chair in their ri...

Plot and Counter Plot. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 17 November 1883

Hot and Counter Plot. Near to a newly formed sheep station out west, one Toney Curry, an ignorant cunning old curmudgeon managed to establish a grog sbop to the intense annoyance of the manager. Just before shearing Toney laid in an extra supply of fiery Mackay and other questionable mixtures and flattered himself that his ret was set for a good haul, but to his great chargrin, the station manager notified that he would employ no man who visited the pub. (until shearing was over), or sent there for grog, and any infraction of this rule should be visited by Instant dismissal and a forfeit of five pounds. Now shearers of all others are partial to rum and don't as a rule let trifles stop them from obtaining it whenever it is to be got, but there are few who like to part with a fiver in the way of a fine; so matters didn't look particularly rosey for Toney. Just, however, before starting the shed, the boss called the men together and orated as follows: - " Now, men, lookhere, I intend t...

A Colonial Youth. ON my journey through, this vale of tears I chanced lately to be travelling from say Woollongong to Brisbane on the box of an omnibus, if such a machine could by any sketch of courtesy be so called-to be exact it was last Saturday evening-the driver was was a youth of Italian extraction hailing from Tipperary I imagined by the rich brogue which en veloped his every utterance. When still in the village, or lest I hurt the feelings of any dwellers in that sylvan region supposed I say town, especially as they have a debating class all to themselves, we were hailed by a youth who bore tho' not "midsnow and ice" a cane with a most gorgeous veal silver top; I Was made aware of the reality of this silver top by some remarks which fell from the lips of the youth in the course of his conversation with his friend the driver, this said gilded or rather silvered youth also wore a hat very much on one side and a thunder and lightning tie of marvellous pattern, and commenced to ...

Clerk or Mechanic? [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 17 November 1883

Clerk or Mechanic? I DO sincerely pity the poor clerk compelled to dress decently on two pounds a week. Why let young boys be clerks at all ? Put them to trades and they will never starve. Education is no doubt a very good thing, but when its effect is to give children the idea that a trade is low, and that to be a clerk is to be a gentleman, the benefits of education may be questioned. Do not imagine that I would check the distribution of education. But the best possible use should be made of education and it should not be used against the interests of our children. Putting a boy into a junior clerkship is very often preventing him rising any higher. There are exceptions I admit, but as a rule, once a clerk always a clerk. I would much rather see my boy a skilled mechanic than a clerk, and how few skilled and thoroughly effecient workmen there are J
