Hot Coffee. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 17 November 1883

Hot Coffee* AT the recent meeting of the Synod of Brisbane the Revd. Mr. Mahalm took exception to the recep tion of a gift of three glass stained windows in the church of St. James's, Toowoomba> by the ifridow of the late George Henry Davenport. The exception was taken on the ground that the means from which their payment came had been derived from the gains of one of the greatest dummierg in the colony* The Church of England organ* the Queensland Guardian after defending the memory of Davenportj hits out direct from the shoulder in a manner thai makes me quite jealous. " It was due to the memory of this amiable and kindly-hearted man that this vindication of his course should have been offered. They who knew him best know how widely his generous hearted re* cognition followed'every evidence of industry and merit, often to his own loss, but then never com* plained of. If the clergyman who, it is charitably to be hoped, knew nothing of the facts of the case> would emulate his v...

A Catastrophe Concentrated. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 17 November 1883

A Catastrophe Concentrated. The following is the most brilliant, and positively the very latest, triumph the Medical faculty has achieved. A Roger "Williams, a young graduate of Auckland, New Zealand, recently suffered so much from the pulmonary disease and waste of blood, that he was worn almost to a skeleton. Transfusion of blood was declared to be the only remedy left, but there seems to have been a scarcity of the human article in Auckland, and the Doctors therefore sug gested to tap a calf. Roger bucked at calves but finally consented to stand cats, and, accordingly, 17 Toms were martyred and their blood squirted into the veins of Williams. The man at once gained strength, but, through constantly brooding over the consequences of incorporating the blood of cats into his own system, the catastrophe at length arrived, and one night he refused to go to bed, preferring to lie coiled up on a rug before the fire. He has never slept in a bed since. At night, when not asleep, he sneaks...

A Peep at the Shows. "You were not at the play to-night, Don Carlos. How happened it?"—The Spanish Student. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 17 November 1883

A Peep at the Shows. "You were not at the play to-night, Don Carlos. How - happened it ? "-The Spanish Studeni. ON Monday evening last, H.M.S. Pinafore, was presented at the Theatre Royal, for the first time in Brisbane, by (what the bills term) the Brisbane Amateur Juvenile Opera Company, and owing no to the laudable object for which the entertainment was given, the presence of our " New Governor/' and the novelty of the performance as large a house as has been seen in the Theatre for some time past was attracted. The performance on the whole ran smoothly, the choruses being strong, and the voices blending to gether producing a very nice effect, this was especi ally noticeable in the "Midshipmite"* chorus. To " Josephine " I would give the palm for best singing and acting. This young lady has a very sweet voice, plenty of self-confidence and natural stage ability, which enables her to render the part most creditably. " Dick Dead Eye " has a splendid voice if he used it properly, bu...

A Plea for the Civil Service. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 24 November 1883

A Plea lor the CiYil Service. THE present is a fitting opportunity for the member? of the Civil, Service to agitate for the cur tailment of their working hoars. ? They will not need to be told the arguments that they should urge in favor of the plea that one hour per diem should be struck off the lime daring which they are expected to be. in attendance at their dnties. Sir Thomas M'Hwraith was, just prior to the elec tions, asked to make this concession. He declined to grant it, but he intimated that his only ground for so declining wis because he thought that it would be indecent for him to make the alteration just at the time when he was about to have a general election abd likely to be required to leave office. Mac. was quite right' in that. His motive would have been misunderstood. He would have been accused of tout ing; for th& votes of Civil Servants. Samuel Griffith stands in a very different position. He is at the head of a strong Government just enter ing upon a car...

wild white, man who was the other day captured in a naked state in the bush near Marl borough is now enjoying the sweets of "Sheehy*s Broad Arrow Hotel," Bockhampton, having been sentenced to a fortnight's imprisonment for vagrancy. He gives his name as Gladstone Brnnton, and says his parents were Peebleshire (Scotland) folk. He came out to Australia from Bdinburgh 27 years ago. Two years since he was working at Boma, and he has relations at Maryborough. He cannot give any reason why he took to solitary and wild life and has no recollection of dates, during the past two years. He pleaded guilty to vagrancy, and when aiterWards asked why he did so* he replied-" I have .viable mams of support* but not lawful j as it is against the law* of the land to live in the btu& doing nothing but roaming about."

Those Keppel Island Blacks. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 24 November 1883

Those Keppel Island Blacks. MY readers "will, of course, remember the two or three articles ! published recently* about " Kidnap ping Keppel Island Blacks." They formed the subject of an animated discussion in the Eockhamp ton papers. The latest addition to the discussion is provided by the Yeppoon correspondent of the Rock hampton Bulletin, who thus places what he calls "the true facts of the case" Some years ago these blacks by some means got on to South. Keppel Island from the main land, and have been living there ever since. When the island was let for sheep grazing, and stocked, they began " to think mutton was preferable to fish, oysters, and yams, and reduced the number of sheep by more than a hundred head. The owners found it necessary to do something to save their herds, and (this is according to the , blacks* own account), asked them to go on the cutter-" catch 'em plenty fish." The cutter then landed them at "Water Park Point, about ten miles south of Cape Manifold, where...

The Peeler and the Thief. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 24 November 1883

The Peeler and the Thief. SOME people say that I am too rough upon Com missioner Seymour and the " po-lis "-that I go too far when I say that the police often abet rather than suppress crime. Yery well, listen to this instance of the high intelligence displayed by a vi number uv the foorce." The incident came under my personal observation. Last Saturday evening* I was in Daly's Sovereign Hotel, Elizabeth Street, when I heard the cry of ,f Stop Thief!" Naturally, I amongst others, ran out on to the pavement in order to ascertain what was the matter. I saw a man scooting down the centre of the street for his bare life, while, some distance behind him, was another, puffing and blow ing, and yelling, " Stop Thief!" Some men ran from the direction of McLean's, the coach-builder's establishment, and stopped the career of the pre sumable thief. Miraculous to relate, the proverbial bobby who is always absent when he is wanted, actually turned up just as the puffing and blowing pursuer came ...

Unpleasant State School Scandal. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 24 November 1883

Unpleasant State School Scandal. A lady teacher in a suburban state school has.been temporarily suspended in consequence of jbhe head master of that school having reported that she was; absent without cause for a few days. The lady pleads that she was ill, and an investigation is going on. Pooh ! cries the reader; a trivial matter this. So it is-so far. But, if I am informed rightly, there is something important behind the scenes. Some thing horrible ! First, let me tell you that this lady teacher has been under the Educational Department for 9 years, and is almost the sole support of a family in indigent circumstances. She is a spinster. The information supplied to me is that, for some reason or other, this lady teacher is not looked upon with favor by the head-master and head-mistress of the school, and that these have exhibited their ani mosity towards her in no uncertain manner. I am told that the head-mistress has frequently insinuated that the lady teacher " is no better than ...
