The fcree was struck by lightning, and Strover was strufck by the idea that one side of his body was paralysed. He wasn't; though, it was only a sort of numbness, as if one side had gone to sleep, as one's foot sometimes does, and it soon woke up again. ,: William Cox went to the race-course on Thurs day, (Separation Day) with a mate and looked, about for prey.

Parnell's Party. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 December 1885

Parncll's Party. " The result of the general election in the United Kingdom is now plain. Neither Liberals nor Con servatives have gained anything by it. Parnell is the top of both parties. Neither of them can hold office without his assistance, unless, indeed, they should, in sheer desperation, combine against him, which is extremely unlikely to happen. He is master of the situation at present, and it seems that one, at all events, of the English parties is willing to come to terms with him and pay the price he asks for his alliance.. Of course, everybody knows what Mr. Parnell's price will be, but what will be the result of it's payment—who can guess ? It seems scarcely possible that any party that con sents to pay it can continue to rule England. For one result of its payment will be that Mr. Parnell and his eighty-five supporters will no longer sit in the English Parliament. They will only be able to support their friends with their votes until that price is paid, and then they ...

Only a Bog. The dead man was eittingagainsfca tree, and his djg, which was sitting between his knees, had to be shot by the constable. —Figaro, Dec. 12th 1885," Shot! by a constable's hand! Shot! by his master's knee, ; Who was found stone dead in our no-man's land " Sitting against a tree." Ahd why, should that constable shoot A brute, so gallant and true ?

Taxing the Sewing Girl. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 December 1885

Taxing the Sewing Girl. I hear a lot from the publicans about Sammy's tax on beer, an awful lot; to believe some of them it's ruining their trade and knocking their profits endways. Down in Brisbane they are mutinous; up in Toowoomba they have openly revolted— against the brewers. "Why against the brewers ? X d. like to know. Why not wait and remember when 'lection day comes around ? I can't pick up a paper without seeing in it a hotel-keeper's wail of distress; I can't walk on Queen-street without some jolly looking fellow slapping me on the back and beginning, " See here, old man, this beer tax is killing me:" I always ask: " Haven't you a vote ?" . "I am always told "Yes." I always conclude: « Then, why in the name of all that's good and evil, don't you use it ?" # » # But the Sewing girls! I don't hear a word about the injustice that Sammy saddled on them; I don't hear a cry or a moan over the crushing impost he levied on the sewing machines that give them their daily bread; I h...

Almost a Murder. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 December 1885

. — ♦ . : Almost <1 Murder. Splipps read in the papers that cholera seems to select women for victims in preference to men, and ? being out in company, the other night he thought he' would paralyse the crowd with a pun. What disease seizes women in preference toy men ?" he propounded. ^ The company grew sad-eyed all at once, and gave it up without an effort. " Why. the cholera," said Splipps, smiling blandly* Then, as no one laughed, but all looked at him in mute entreaty, he added, disgustingly: " Can't you see the point? The coller-er, eh?" * One by one strong men burst into tears, and all the company felt as if they had come to a funeral instead of a feast, except little Arniand, the phreno logist, who was present and he offered to examine Splipps's head free of charge. But Splipps had departed. - No man has done more for Blackall town residents than the newly-elected Member for the Barcoo; and yet at the late election Banks polled thirty - six votes out of one hundred...

A North Queensland Holiday. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 December 1885

A North Queensland Holiday. The opening of the first section of the Cooktown. railway, on Monday, November 30th, was naturally an opportunity for our Northern friends to jollity as is their wont. E. D'Arcy, the Mayor of Cooktown, made public proclamation that a free train would he laid on, and the public who heard the proclamation, determined that they would lay themselves on-— wives, children and all—en masse. And so they aid. The crowd assembled at the railway station at half after nine of the clock in thie morning. There was a little delay, caused by the formal ceremony ot the engine being christened in fizz by the Mayor. It was named the Endeavour. I'll never fathom out such biz., Don't seem as if I oughter j Though they'll baptise machines in fizz, For human mites—pure water 1 And yet the world would deem me fool, And righteously get riled, If I e'er dared to say a tool Is better than a child. And still, in all our human biz., A child gets water; tools get fizz. After the preli...

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

An Apology. It appears that I have hurt a fellow-pressman's reputation. I assure him, and the world publicly, that I didn't intend to. (It has ?ften been said that pressmen have no reputation, but that is so evident a canard that I need not consider it further.) The case is this. I made certain corameUfcs upon a most innocent row between Divisional Board infen at Port Curtis. Skyring (who used to be a butcher friend of mine in the old days) is the chairm an. As far as I answer to my own conscience, I misrepresented nothing. But, it seems that I had not been made aware of the sale and disposal of the Gladstone Observer. That journal was dragged into nay article because it recorded the doings which I subsequently immortalized in my article about a ** Bottle of Smoke " (vide). I mentioned Moran's name, because I had always understood him to be (sinceMellifont's announced retirement) the presiding demon of the Gladstone ark. But it appears that I was out of it. As, when I apologise to a...

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

The Cholera Masquerade. There is nothing like dare-devilry, nothing like snapping the fingers at the pestilence, and bluffing fear with dance and song. Is not Eugene Sue, the immortal, authority for this? Did not the gay Parisian flaunt the cholera masquerade in the face of danger F And how much, easier that was than looking serious and making the town clean! This is evidently what we should do; it is useless to call for the scavenger, the fumigator, and the health com mission ; it is unpleasant as well as useless to make the town smell sweet with copperas, chloride of lime* and Condy's disinfecting fluid. Away with such^iew fangled notions, only the old and would-be wise guard against contingencies and leave nothing to chance; the young and happily ignorant are goiot to fight the cholera on its own ground and take their punishment like little men. Why should they cot, when the Premier of Queensland sets the example ? Why should the rest of us care when he who hold$ a parliamentary ...

A Bush Marriage. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 December 1885

A Busli Marriage. The preliminaries were not ceremonious. A. V. Robinson, of Daroo station, received, on the 25th of last month, a small note on a scrap of piper, and written in pencil. These were the words : — " Mr. Robinson. "Sir,—I shall be in at Daroo on Tuesday, (that would b«? December 1st.) when, with your assistance, I intend to marry. I will bring the girl up about 12 o'clock. " Yours obediently, "Lulu." " Lulu" is a blood relation of Sam Griffith.—that is to say, he is a kanaka. Of course he dil'nt write the nott. A station-hand performed that office for him at his dictation. The ceremony came off. Robinson was " officiating clergyman." Craig (Robinson's book-keeper) was best man. The bride was not fair to see; on the contrary, she was dark. Nathless, both the " officiating priest" and the best man yearned for the " first kiss." The two belligerents (belligerents only in this erotic sense) had an idea of each other's design. ' Both desired to thwart each other. It fell out...

I have gone out of the regular business and have contracted with a woman to come in ever so often and fix things. This works first-rate, so far, and makes me smile when I hear my acquaintances lamenting and relating their experiences. O f course you have heard that the cholera is supposed to be off the coast, on an immigrant steamer, but you probably haven't heard that the Premier and other officials of the polony have muddled the business in a way that is simply disgraceful. Would you believe that, after the plague was discovered, at a place called Townsvilie, they kept those poor wretches on board, and the ship waiting for nearly two days before they made up the...
