Literary Highwayman. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 15 December 1883

Literarjr Highwayman; '? * I AM not a very sensitive, nor .an over-particiilar, man ; yet, I find myself obliged to close my exchange list with two papers-the Melbourne Bulletin and the .Auckland (N. Z.) Observer, For months past^the | latter paper has almost lived on my literary efforts. I It has stolen from Punch and from Figaro in the most barefaced and wholesale manner possible. The reader will und£rs1iand that there 'ate columns in every newspaper that are not looked upon as original, and had the wholesale extracts from my FIGARO atid PUNCH been confined to small pars, that could Have been placed in such columns, I would never have complained. j But it has occurred that every article {poetical or prose) that has taken the fancy of this New Zealand newspaper man, has b^en dumped into his paper holtis bolus-i£ necessary,* a name here and there changed, in order to localise and make the stuff appear original.

Cricket. COMBINED BRISBANE [?]. COMBINED DOWNS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 15 December 1883

Cricket. COMBINED BRISBANE ». COMBINED DOWNS. THE first day's play of the above match was got through on Saturday at Toowong, in the presence of a good number of spectators and friends of the re spective teams. At half-past Eleven the members of the Brisbane team met at the General Post Office, where they were shortly joined by their opponents, for whom two wagonettes had been provided. A start was then made for the field of battle at Too wong, where the usual preliminary " few strikes " for practice were gone in fox*, before the Captains, Messrs. D. Scott (Brisbane), and Hamilton (Downs), tossed for choice of innings. The smile of the fickle goddoss was upon the former, and he chose to take the wickets, sending Nettle ayd Wearne to make a start for his men. The wicket played very fast, and Nettle in trying to follow a leg ball from Gregory round, just got too low and popped it up for long-stop to catch, 1-1-4. Sheridan followed, and he and Wearne kept on until 22 was reached, when ...

Betrayed to Her Ruin by a Labor Office. ; 3t it fi T 'i H. W jb £ t. IT cn A gibl named Margaret Doyle, 18 years of age, has just been provided "with a home by tne Sistera of Mercy, in lieu of being sent to gaol as a vagrant. She is a new chum, who has been in the colony some 18 months only. She was represented by the police as having been a hard-working, honest girl until she had been "led astray"-which term, in this instance, does not seem to possess the ordinary signification commonly placed upon it in respect of females, bat to mean something* far more horrible. It is with a Labor Office that this article lias chiefly to do. This Margaret Doyle was engaged at Mrs. Murray's Labor Office-by-tbe-way, is. not this the Labor Establishment which /was recently refused a pawnbroking license, from which' it appears to have made a profitable concurrent business ?-to go to a Madame ftrau as coob and laundress.

Swindling Advertisements. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 15 December 1883

Swindling Advertisements. THERE is no end to the number and description of swindling advertisements. It isn't many months since the Brisbane Courier had in its advertising columns an announcement that people could be put in the way of making from J63 to <£5 per week, by apply ing to one " Henry Astor " (I spell the name from me mory) at Clement's (or Garton's ?) Caffe, Melbourne. That advertisement asked applicants to forward eighteen pen'orth of stamps "for samples." The announcement was probably advertised in many colonial papers of as respectable a status as the Courier, yet I have no hesitation in characterising it as a downright swindle. Through whose agency the said advertisement was sent to the Courier, or who paid for it, I cannot, of course, surmise. All I know is that a Brisbane friend of mine some five months ago answered it. In order to make certain that the eighteenpence would reach the advertiser, he actu ally paid a shilling (making the cost altogether half...

You see, the tuppeny ha'penuy joss mandarins got an idea that they were diplomatists, and as they very seldom get an idea at all, this one had a lasting impression upon them. ; They had read in the Toowoomba Chronicle that " no. man is a hero to his own valet," and that the best method of " not doing it" was to shut out the Press, and supply the world with the "cold minutes of pro ceedings." Griffith and Garrick-our men-said that diplomatists always buried their heads (like ostriches) in the sands of official silence, because when they were doing nothing, tlie peripatetic reporter always made a grandliarvest by inventing ideas for them and telling the " wide, wide world " what they were not doing.
