Why He Did It. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 12 December 1885

Why He Did It. It was on the night of the 15th October, jl88~, that James Brown acted, in a way that puzzled the shearers worUing at B- , in the Mitchell District. " The Eiixger " of the shed, who had l£nowii him for years past, said he "nWer seen old Jim taken that way afore;" but was vastly indignant when a Wool presser suggested that he had been bluffed,1 as though such an old hand could be bluffed.: James Brown was well-known as having been one of the best shearers In the country when he was younger, and, as being at the present time, the most daring and skilful player at any game of chance, with cards or coins. On this night the usual school was gathered at the table under the botigh shed, which \tas lighted, by; a couple of fat-lamps, and the man who sat on Brown's right hand had dealt the cards, the game being poker. Opposite to Brown sat a young fellow about nineteen years old, a tfouseabout in the shed, who had not .been in jjhe country more than eighteen months. TTia blue ...

THE MTEST AMERICAN INVENTION • ' , I The Victory of Electricity. Since Electricity hasbeen applied for lighting purposes, all efforts of inventors have been directed to construct a lamp for general domes tic use. The reason why this problem lias till now not been solved, is that none of the inven ors could rid themselves of the idea of gas ghting, and that all have adhered to the system of producing the Electricity in some central place, or by large machinery; iustead of first laying down the principle that a Lamp which should ever become generally useful and popular, must be portable like an Oil Lamp, and. contain the generator of Electricity in self, i.e., in the foot of the Lamp. The Norman Electric Light Co. has at last succeeded in completely realizing this ideal of Electric Lighting, and there, is no doubt that this most important invention will bring about a complete revolution iu all branches of light ing. Our Electric Lamp needs neither Machinery, Conductors, nor any expens...

Nothing in It. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 December 1885

-r Nothing in It. Now Birdsville is a far west town, And has Js.P. of great renown. - (I have the plural used in fun, For I believe there's only one !) Hut, then, besides such legal shotters, There's outside Js.P. who are squatters j And when these come to Birdsville town, They generally " do it brown." I will not say their conduct's queer, And that each walks on his pink ear ; But I will swear, upon my head! They paint the town a brilliant red. The other day, just like a stray pea, To Birdsville went a squatting J.P.; And, like a man controlled fey fate, Sought out his brother Magistrate. That fixed them up; though they both sat, Their breaths smelt like a brewers' vat, And any jury (in October), Would swear the pair of them were sober. The local Justice; as he walked, Forgot with whom it was he talked; Somehow (now, wonders never cease! ) He thought it was the town police! And, hating such misplaced renown, He turned and knocked the squatter down; The squatter, though he'd filled ...

The Argonauts in Queensland: A Tale of the Forties. (Continued.) CANTO II. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 December 1885

The Argonauts in Queensland A Tale of the Forties* Mak. Gebtjbn (Continued,.) Canto <11. Jones did not tempt dame fortune more that trip; She left him in the lurch, so he forsook her; He blamed the wine, so pleasing to the lip, As having caused the loss of so much lucre, And tried to let it from his memory slip That he and Jason ever had played euchre. # He felt he'd been a fool, which knowledge cost Him more annoyance than the money lost. He did not break with Jason, but he spoke With more reserve until they reached the quay. The Greek, who saw the change, thought it a joke And wished he had not let him off so free. It was not often he did such a stroke, Or found a 'possum up so small a tree. Practice had shown him that, to win a fiver. He had to work like any bullock driver. Some Brisbane friends of Jones's met the boat, And Jason saw that now this stream was dry His late antagonist took no more note Of him, with these new comers standing by.

Packing the Rolls. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 December 1885

Packing the Bolls. I noticed, the other day, a letter in the Queensland Times, written by a Mr. Deane, an elector of Rose wood electorate, complaining that the Revision Court at Marburg1 had struck his name off the Electoral Roll for that d;strict, without any notice of objection having been lodged against him; and this Mr. Deane seems to think that, because their action was illegal, he has something to complain of, and, still more absurd, that he can obtain redress for the j wrong. [ Surely Mr. Deane must be a new chum, or he would know that Revision Courts in Queensland are, veryifrequently appointed solely in order "to pack" the Electoral Roils, and that they have always obtained the right to override the law. A few years ago, a number of Justices took their seats on the Ipswich Bench, and struck off the Roll the names of a number of electors who had residences qualification on the ground that they lived in tents. This was a gross violation of the law, which does not provide that...

Take Him up Tenderly. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 December 1885

Take Him up Tenderly. The Maryborough Chronicle man is rough on the Observer, and this is how he rubs him down :—" We should not be justified, simply because Brisbane happens to be prolific in suicides, social evils, or, ac cording to a well-known judge, contains all the crime in the colony, in denouncing the citizens of Brisbane as worse than criminals. And we do not think the Brisbane Courier, or its literary offshoots, justified in continuing their course of misrepresent ing Maryborough to the extent of nagging in the following spiteful strain, simply because a Brisbane outcast—had him there, Jack—had chosen to come to Maryborough to drown himself." This is sharp and cutting, but Cant is thick skinned, and the Observer cannot be shamed by an ordinary flogging. It takes Jack IVoodyatt's Toledo blade, or Tbady O'Kane's quarter staff, cr a libel action, to make the Philistine journal whine and cry pecqavi!
