Brisbane, Queensland, December 18,1885. My Dearest Kittib,— I was going to write you a whole string of dole fulness, but I won't. You see all about the cholera every morning, and> doubtless, know as well as l ean ever tell you, how this wretched Government is muddling things.: It's always this way, I suppose, for I recollect hearing the traditions of how the same bloodthirsty complaint cleaned out Chicago, and how nobody did anything but sit down and look on. The big fire was a splendid thing for us; it cleaned out all the disease dens and pe^t-holes, and ga.ve the old place a chance to straighten herself out. That's what Brisbane wants, not that less heroic measures wouldn't do good, but just because thB authorities haven't got gumption enough to settle down to work a...

THE LATEST AMERICAN MEHTION Th© Victory of Electricity. Since Electricity has been applied for lighting purposes, all efforts, of inventors have beeu directed to construct a lamp for general domes tic use. The reason why this problem has till now not been solved, is that none of the inven tors could rid themselves of the idea of gas lighting, and that all have adhered to the system of producing the Electricity in some central place, or by large machinery, instead 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 bo'iitaiii the generator of Electricity in itself, i.e., in the foot of the Lamp. The Norman Electric Light Co. has at last succeeded in completely realizing this ideal of ElqCtric Lighting, and there is no doubt that this most important invention will bring about a oomplete revolution in all branches of light ing. ' : vr ;' ;; Our Electric Lamp needs neither Machinery, Conductors, no...

The First Quadrille. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 26 December 1885

The First Quadrille. There are certain responsibilities it is not only wicked but mean-spirited to shirk, yet how often is it done!

- He Discovered a Difference. During a late Parliamentary election, one of the 'orny handed, being interrogated r^ the course of his vote, replied:—"I voted for Griffith last time, but am goin' to vote for Queensland this time." The son of toil had " dropped " to a difference between the "two,- quite' as : much as the difference between the Poles, between black and white, between Figa&o and the Pennygraph.

Over-exertion. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 26 December 1885

Over-exertion. A well known Queen street athlete took two pretty, quiet, little girls to a ball on Wednesday; night, with the intention of " bringing them out." He flattered himself that his oratorical powers were sufficientto evoke an echo from even a lay figure, but all htl efforts to provoke a conversation were un availing, and bored, and weary, he sought a little refreshment, " Why, old man, what's the matter ?" exclaimed the friend who had introduced him to the aforesaid young ladies, " have jypu lost a pot at the races, or did you try too muchiSt the^''..Athletic exhibition last night ;. " No,Fred/' he replied, "not exactly, but I have over-exerted myself to-night. The dumb belUt are too jnuch for me,"

"Sandy Blight, where are Ye?" A skeleton of a Barcoo man (yon can always tell Barcoo men by their boots) lately entered a chemist's shop somewhere in Wide Bay, and enquired of a new chum apprentice if he had anything for Sandy Blight. " Sandy Blie, Sandy Blie (mused the apprentice), no, nothing that I know of, but there's a parcel here for the last two days for Duncan Ramsay*"

Queensland Figaro "Fear God; Speak evil of none; Stick to the Truth; and never be done." BRISBANE SATURDAY, DECEMBER 26,1885. The Compliments of the Season. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 26 December 1885

BBISBANE* SATURDAY, DECEMBEB 26,1885. i " The Compliments of tlie Season. <f A Merry Christmas!" A stale and familiar term ; but what, in the voca bulary of human salutations, is there like it ? And Figaro is rejoiced to indulge in the old familiar words, and wish its readers the stereotyped compli ment. Stereotyped, mark you! with usage only; but freshly springing from the heart every time it is genuinely uttered. Believe me, it is so now. We have seen changes enough during the year that has now arrived at another Christmas milestone. I'm almost sorry now that I used the metaphor of "^milestone," for, in this part of Australia, we don't indulge in such luxuries overmuch. We call it the one-male peg, or the two-miles peg, as the case may be. But the journeys remain the same. And, re turning to our " sheep ? " there has been much during the year to affect the destiny of the colony. Much more than superficial observers think. Politics should not be abandoned in a familiar C...

What Becomes of Them [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 26 December 1885

What Becomes of Them * [By N. B.] So I see that Pyroxiline, the photographer, has sent home the " proofs " of my dear little girl Olive's likeness, for me to select which of the five I will have finally printed and enamelled. Pyroxiline has marked two of them as his choice., so I am expected, I suppose, to reject the other three. Ay de mi; I don't like the idea one bit. Why should even one of my little pet's photographic smiles be waiBted and rubbed out for good and all ? It might be that, ere another week dawns on us, she may be laid to sleep in Toowong, and have ceased to smile here for ever— and then, then, what of the erased, stifled, rejected little dimpled mouth that we cast aside so carelessly -from its one chance of being recorded for; aye and ever? The question*is a deep one, and seems to widen and widen as we ponder on it. Why is it, all the world over, from creation even till now, that one is taken and another left? Why does one' child perish prematurely still-born, and i...

No Need for Panic. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 26 December 1885

No Need for Panic. |jf' Everybody has got the cholera ^pam& ■ Figauo would be the last paper in the world to deaden the senses of its readers to the. importaiice of Cleanliiiess and sanitation. That is wh]y, only a week or two back, I issued a gratis supplement with Figaro, on the " Precautions, against Oholera and Diarrhoea" as published by the National Health Society of ; England. But precaution is one thing; panic is another. To hear apparently sensible men talking about flying the country until " the dreaded scourge" has disappeared; to hear people -who never noticed cess pits or abominations before in their lives, discoursing learnedly on drainage and sewerage; to men viewing with alarm every temporary disarrangement of health that takes place—is enough to make human nature' appear contemptible to the thoughtful mind. I have sounded the tocsin of alarm more than once. I have dinned into the ears of oiir deaf health authorities what they should do and should regard. That...

To Correspondents. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 26 December 1885

To Correspondents. " Yakkee."—You are disagreeably surprised and apparently insulted at the altering of a phrase. You, like a thousand others, have accepted a common fallacy and used the phrase" double entendre." Well, to a Frenchman proper, or to a philologist, the term is simply stupidity. The proper term is " double entente," as I made it. To snow you the absurdity of it, I have only to go into French grammar a school-boy's distance. "Entendre " is a verb in the in finitive, (they may have some new-fangled name for the tense now; I have not studied recent school-books; but the laws remain implacable) meaning ."to hear," "to mean," "to understand," "to perceive." Tf.ell, let me translate your " double " into the English of the same con struction, but not of the same pronunciation. It's a fair deal, for it means precisely the same. Then, you make "double entendre" to convey the idea of—" double to hear," "double to mean," "double to understand." Now, the true meaning of the phrase ...
