A Fistic Challenge. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 December 1885

A Fistic Challenge. That Northern pugilistic encounter doesn't seem likely to come off. My readers will remember having heard of " Robert the Bruce or Robert Bruce— or, as he styles himself, " Professsor Bruce/' He is "professor" of mesmerism, phrenology, and lord knows-what. If I am right in my tracing of his identity, Bruce was, m about '74, engaged in the sawmills of Sam Johnstone, of North Bundaberg, and used to pose in amateur theatricals. He seems to have drifted North. I last noticed him in these columns as being the subject (or object) of a challenge from Joe Logue, of Townsville, who offered to box the Professor for £25 a side. Logue was the champion of W. Y. Brown at the late Townsville election; while Bruce was affected to be in the interests of the unsuccess ful Eke Russell. " Robert the Bruce" appears to have got into trouble. He and a man named William Scott (probably one of those " Scot3 whom Bruce has often led") have been arrested for stealing a brooch, valued at &a...

Queensland Figaro "Fear God; Speak evil of none; Stick to the Truth; and never be done." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, DECEMBER 19, 1885. Be Cleanly and Fear Not. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 December 1885

BRISBANE: SATURDAY, DECEMBER 19,1885. Be Cleanly and Fear Not. The cholera is a bad thing: there's no use in attempting to palliate that, or in making people believe it isn't; it's the worst thing, barring the " Black Death," known to mortal man, so bad that the officials who let it be brought to Brisbane deserve lynching. But there is one thing that licks the cholera, that gets a "knock down" at it every time it strikes, that is just as hard on the cholera as vaccination is on small-pox. There is a preventative for cholera, as there is for, most other things, and a preventative as simple as true preventatives always are. Vaccination kills small-pox; Sulphur kills diphtheria j Quinine kills malaria ; but not half as certainly as— Cleanliness kills Choleba. That's the preventative we want to have at Jiand, good, healthy cleanliness; we don't want any cess pools, or niuck heaps, or manure heaps, or high smelling articles of any sort around us. Let us be clean and we needn't fear the c...

A Girl's Dilemma. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 December 1885

A Girl's Dilemma I have received the following embarrassing letter from ayounglady who is evidently "hard hit" by Eros. How to advise her, I know not; but for the benefit of the rising generation, and of thoe« who may some day be smitten themselves. I publish it in externa, as follows :— What it XflV ? Her taste exact For faultleRS fact, Amounts to a disease " Mikado." I have been walking with a young fellow named Geozge for soma time. I thought I loved him truly, but was not quite sure of my heart. The other evening I was walking along the river with him and he stole his manly arm round my fairy waist, and said " Birdie," he always calls me Birdie, "I have loved thee long, I have loved thee strong, wilst thou fly with me?" And he -tried to imprint a mark of affection on my alabaster brow and coral lips.. I said, *'It's not fiy-time!" So he tore away his sturdy right arm from my wasp-like waist, and nearly broke my " Florence Dixies," as my «ister calls her stays. Afterwards, I walk...

A Tip about the Cholera. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 December 1885

A Tip about the Cholera. By an Unbelieving Layman. It is perfectly bewildering to read the nonsense , that is written about the Cholera, now threatening us. Let us consider the matter, as men of ordinary intelligence. Most old bushmen will have had experience of what is termed, amongst themselves, dysentery. This is really a form of " English Cholera," or " choloraic diarrhoea." The term, by derivation, means " bile*' flux." The severer form of disease, which-becomes both endemic and epidemic, i8 known as " malignant cholera," or " Asiatic Cholera," and has been classed amongst the " plagues " that affright mankind. But it is an order of disease, with symptoms of the same character (though terribly intensified) as the English cholera. Physicians have wrangled over Asiatic cholera until a layman loses all faith in any of them. They talk learnedly, but at random. Let us consider facts, only. First of all, it is a bowels complaint, pure and simple. The bowels, then, are the parts to be...

New Music. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 December 1885

New Music. Alfred Cobby, of Haydn Villa, Grympie, and formerly of Toowoomba, a well-known professor of music, has forwarded me an original melody to suit the words of Cowper's " To the Nightingale I do not profess to be deeply versed in the technique of music, and, therefore, the opinion I give must be considered as coming from a non-professional source, so as not to submit my understanding as against that of the musicaLworld. I have tried the melody in my own amateur fashion, upon my own piano (sadly out of tune, I fear—Pollard to the rescue!) and with the fore thought that I took care the musical geniuses of the family had left the premises on their various daily businesses. I have tried the melody, I say, and I liked it well. It is set in the scale of D (we called it " re " in my young school days, but they've changed all that, now). There is nothing intricate in its conception (though it suffered, 'doubtless, ljy my amateur play ing) ; it is mostly a piece of "natural chords and...

The Bracelet Protests. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 December 1885

The Bracelet Protests. At the conclusion of the race for the Ladies' Bracelet, on Saturday, two protests %;ere handed in to the secretary of Tattersall's Club, or his clerkj against Orphan Boy, the othfer against Yately, (the two coming in first and second respectively.) The objections were, in each case that the rider was a professional, and therefore not a gentleman rider, within the meaning of the articles of the race. The Orphan Boy case was at once proceeded with on the course, and, in a very few minutes, decided against him, the stewards awarding the stakes to Yately, The decision was forwarded to the Totalisator shed, when the Yately ticket holders were paid, and this, notwithstanding that a protest had been lodged, and was then in the hands of an official of the club, and had been seen by two of the stewards who, declare they had no official knowledge of it having been entered. The public however, clamoured so loudly over the different measure dealt out in the two precisely ...

The Gloves. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 December 1885

The Gloves. At the Acadamy of Music, Brisbane, on Monday night, a series of boxing matches took place. The principal event of the evening was a bout between Shaw, of Lutwyche,and a cockney, known as "Yoking Cochin China." After over an hour's fighting Cochin floored his antagonist twice in rapid succession, and won the day, or the night. The match was for J650. The contest was under the management of " The Black Diamond.'*

An Election Trick. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 December 1885

—.— An Election Trick. " There are more ways of killing a cat than by choking it with butter." Theife was something very peculiar about the late Mitchell election. I will not go so far as to say that the result would have been altered, had things been different; but I will fearlessly assert that a number of electors were disfranchised by what appears to have been Government manoeuvring. At all previous elections, Moray Downs and Surbiton stations, in the Mitchell electorate, have been gazetted as polling places. This was necessary, in order to give the voters at the lower end of the electorate a chance of exercising that right which British subjects everywhere regard as a sacred privilege—the right of the franchise. At this last election, the only polling place gazetted on the JBelyando watershed was Alpha, which is some 200 miles from the lowest end of the Mitchell electorate. If that part of the country were one where railways abound, and travelling is made easy, there would not, ...

Wanted to Know. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 December 1885

Wanted to Know. I see that Mr. Gavrick, pur Agent-General, has been over to Copenhagen, persuading the Danish Government to permit the emigration of indented Danish Laborers to Queensland, and I want to know why, if our Government undertakes to pay the cost of introducing emigrants, it prefers to pay for foreigners instead of our own countrymen ? Danes are very good men in their way, no doubt, and make very good settlers, but are they any better than English, Irish, or Scotch that we should prefer them ? Our own countrymen in thousands are willing to come out here, and anxious to do so if they could only get the chance. Are we then acting fairly to them in giving the preference to foreigners of any nation ? It may be said that the experiment of growing sugar with white labor is likely to cost so many lives that, it is better to try it with foreigners, whose living or dying is of little concern to us. Or. that the immigrants, being ignorant of our language and laws, will be more help...

A Peep at the Shows. " You were not at the play to-night, Don Carlo's. How - happeined.it?"—The Spanish Student. * When the " Seven Stars Company" visited Tcrwns rille a few weeks ago; the manager, Edwin Palmer, promised a donation to the new West /End State School, but left without doing so. This gave rise to considerable comment which reached Palmer's ears. He has how written to the North Q. Telegraph explaining that the promise was given conditionally, and the conditions were not fulfilled; . He says,* owing to the Keilawarra sticking in the mud, they only played three nights instead of four, there was powerful opposition, and various other , causes, he saysi had the effect of his suffering a loss of £12 8s. 9d.,: find he offers to* exhibithis balance sheet for the season. He hopes to revisit the rocks and goats, and redeem his promise. Edwin says he wrote to the above effect from; Bockhampton tec Geordie Deane, one of the school-daddies, but the latter must Have gone astray.

Cricket. Commercials v. The World. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 December 1885

Cricket. Commercials v. The World. Separation Day will be long remembered by the Commercial travellers and would-be cricketers of Toowoomba. The only local event advertised was £t Grand Temperance Demonstration, and as this -did not quite fall in with the ideas of the parties mentioned above, they decided to arrange and. play a match, Commercial Travellers v. " The World." The match was played on the Toowoomba Cricket Ground, kindly lent to them by the committee of Club. The day was beautifully fine and the match passed off very successfully, there being but two accidents all through the day. The most serious of the two was'the breaking of Sol Lawrence's finger. Captain Bastick acted as guardian for the Com mercials and F. Groom for the local representatives. William allowed "The World" to take the field,and his team of Commercials completely collapsed in, their first innings for 14. Captain Bastick, who carried out his bat, was hoisted on the shoulders of his boys and carried to th...
