No Water, No Baptism. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 26 December 1885

No Water, No Baptism. Jimmy S. O'Quinn was—well, an; Irishman, and a Sheep Overseer too, upoii a large station in the interior. One day the mailman brought him a letter from the " praist," who was then making- a circuit of the stations—christening, marrying, and burying in good old parson style. ' „ It so happened that there was a drought in full swing at the time; and it, happened also, that Jimmy had just parted with his bottom dollar in the purchase of a racing-moke for the Christmas Sports. What was to be done? £The priest would expect at least a ten-pound note, while Jimmy could not ante up as many coppers. However, pax j read and inwardly digest, reader, the O'Quinn's ingenious reply to his " riverence." It is a true copy, and the original may be now one of the curios of the Vati can, for aught I know. Mud Holes1 Downs, July 1. '« Dear Father O'Christenem— "I got yur's by Ogle-eyed Charley the Mail man, who was blind drunk an' didn't know where he saw you. If your horses is fa...

£1 in Advance. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 26 December 1885

in Advance. " Surely my name's good enough for a pound !" That is the burden of the wail which I ain continu ally receiving from all quarters from subscribers. It comes about this way. Gordon and Gotch, my Brisbane agents, attend to the forwarding of all papers to subscribers in the country. When a sub scriber's year is up, Gordon and Gotch, in the formal way of business, write, reminding said subscriber of the fact, and requesting, if Figaro is to be con tinued for another year, that the year's subscription should be paid in advance. Then the subscriber sends Gordon and Gotch (or myself) the J61, and also writes .me an indignant letter that says, in effect, if not in so many words,—" Surely my name's good enough for a pound 1" Now, let me explain my position t o my readers. I do a solid and a genuine business. I have some 7000 paying subscribers on my books. They all pay in advance, because I could not possibly run Figabo, with subscripions in arrears. If I were to adopt the plan a...

The Protest Again. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 26 December 1885

The Protest Again. The members and committee of Tattersall's Club pretty openly express dissatisfaction at the appeal against the decision in the Orphan Boy case having been entertained by the Q.T.C. Committee. "What right," they ask, "has the Q.T.C. Com mittee to interfere with the management of another club ? Who made the Q.T.C. ruler and judge over us?" It is late in the day to ask questions of this kind; and the answer to them is obvious and decisive. When TattersaU's Club registered under the Q.T.C. Rules, and advertised their meeting to be run under the Q.T.C. Rules they conceded absolutely to the Q.T.C Committee the right to constitute itself a court of ap-# peal, competent to confirm or reverse all decisions on racing questions come to by Tattersall's Committee * and the appeal., in the Orphan Boy case, was lodged iri accordance vrith one of TattersaU's Club's own. ruleB, ^deliberately adopted, along with the whole " ■« . code, under wlilch Uie late meeting was advertised to...

•J hop I don't intrude Terms of Subscription.—£1 per annum, paid in ad ance ; single copies 6d. each. Forwarded, post free, to any part of the Colonies. "Old Watty Adams" is talking about leaving Bundaberg, and the local shock is worse than that of a man losing, by violence, a sound tooth. Watty has been part and parcel of Bundaberg so long, that he has become to be regarded as essential to its exist ence. - He is often styled " the father of Bunda berg." Dear old Watty Don't get scotty, Don't you say a ".darn," If, in play now, \ I just say now : Onefold timely yarn. Watty is good as gold, and has been among the fore most ranks of the old " do-ers and be-ers"of Bunda berg ; but, Iain afraid, must waive his claim to the title of "father" of the city. I remember me (though I've lost sight of him) a poor old eccentric, named Tommy Watson, and Dick Stuart (who started a sugar plantation before kanakas were thought of;.

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

Aquatics. The return of the victorious Maryborough crew, ill the Eodondo, was something to be remembered. They are the " Champion Crew," and were received as such. In pursuance of the act in that case, made and provided, they were escorted to the Melbourne Hotel, and were deluged with congratulations. Mac taggart, the stroke, announced his intention of giving up rowing and leaving the field (or river) open to new men. Booker, president, said Maryborough oarsmen might go further afield now, Sydney to wit. The crew were presented with the medals won at the Rockhampton Kegatta, and everybody slid off. Mb. Wm. Nott, of Greycliffe station, near Banana, has had a streak of luck amongst the wild horses there, capturing seventeen brumbies in one haul, amongst them being three stallions, ranging from three to six years old. They were trapped in a very simple manner, by fencing in a water-hole on a dry part of the run, a portion of the fence being left open, about 18 inches to two feet apart,...

Cricket. Nanango v. Biarra. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 26 December 1885

Cricket. Nanango v. Biarra. A match "between the above clubs was played at Nanango, on Separation Day, which resulted in a victory for Nanango by 73 runs. J. Pryde captained the visitors, andH. Parsons for Nanango. The former, winning|the toss, sent their opponents to the wickets, who were soon disposed of for the total of 46. Earwaker, Paulovitch, and Darley, were the highest scorers, who put together very creditably for the winning team, in their first innings, 17, 12, 9, re spectively, against the superior bowling of Francis and.the fielding, of the Biarra team. The Visitors then handled the willow, and gave the Nanango team some leather hunting, they being disposed of for 67. for which J. and J. Francis and R. Greaves put together respectively, 20,19,9, by superior batting, against the notorious underhand grubbers of W. Bright, and the round armers of D. Darley, together with the excellent fielding of the Nanango team. The stumps being drawn at 12.30, the visitors adjourned to t...

A Peep at the Shows. "You were not at the play to-night, Don Carlos. How happened it?"—The Spanis Student. Grattan Riggs. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 26 December 1885

A Peep at the Shows. " You were not at tlie play to-night, Don Carlos. How happened it ?"—The Spanis Student. Grattan Riggs. That truth is stranger than fiction, is often exem plified in the crimes that occur in great cities, and some few years ago, a gang of murderers were brought to justice in New York, who had been doing away with young men, who were decoyed to a certain house by females, and were there robbed and mur dered, and their bodies deposited in the city sewer. The sensational surroundings of this, series of mur ders, have been made the groundwork of a drama for Mr. Grattan Riggs entitled " The Irish Detective." When Mr. Taylor wrote " The Ticket of Leave Man" the house always applauded so vigorously at the point where Hawkshaw, the detective,, surprises the I ruffians in their den and discloses his identity, ttiat it was found necessary to bring the curtain down, and end the act there. This knowledge has been made use of in " The Irish Detective'' and all the: acts end ...

A Page from Life. A Story of Three New Year Days. (Written for FIGARO). Chapter I. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 26 December 1885

A Pag© from Life. A Story of Three New Year Days. {Written for Figaro). Chapter I. Talbot, Earle & Co., Warehousemen and Shipping Agents of Carrickfergus, in the County of Antrim, at one time occupied a very exalted position in the commercial world. From a small beginning the firm had gradually forced its way to the front, through fair dealing, and, a conscientious regard for the welfare of its patrons; and, at the time of which we write, although well able to retire from the arena of business—to balance up its ledger for the last time, satisfactorily to everybody and to none more so than itself,:—operations were increasing with a vigor which less speculative establishments were loath to see. Talbot, the senior partner of the firm, was the beau-ideal of the clean-handed business man. Blunt of manner, yet courteous to the needle's point, whether dealing with nobleman or beggar, honest, as might be supposed from an apprenticeship of forty years to that virtue, as straight in f...
