Anyhow^as people are not bcten married, it follows that newly-inarried people must exist. Fpr, so long as people jnawy at all, they must, at the com mencement of their n&rried career, be ntsvly married. Of course, if people gave up getting married, it would be a different thing. But there does no&«eem any possibility or likelihood of that, just now. vl am glad of it, too, because I feel a natural anxiety as to the keeping up of the supply of my readers in'years to1 come.

Christmas at Milbnng. By Petbr Bunkum. Chapter III. The course of true love never did run smooth. Christmas was now fast approaching, and great preparations were going on at Milbung to make it a right merry one. Invitations were sent to all the neigh bours on the various stations for fifty miles round, and Milbung not being right back in the Never Never Country, was Burroimded by a pretty fair sprinkling of stations, and the ladies in that district were far more niimerous than in niost of the Western Downs country, so a considerable gathering , was expected. The country now looked splendid; the grass already full six inches high, and the stock fast recovering from their late starvation. i; The weather was delightful dti. the afternoon before Christmas, and everyone but Herbert Rods Beemed beaming and happy, as the buggies came in sight one after another; dashing up to Milbung jin grand style. Herbert sat smoking ~ under the Bhade of a peach tree in thejgarden, and watched with a tro...

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

Notice to the Public*—Please to note my time of Publishing is 9 a.m. every Friday* It is not generally known that prisoners in tbe Brisbane lock-up :are subjected to a preliminary punishment before being brought before the Magis trate. A man in the dock on Thursday last com plained of hunger, and said he had been locked up since 3 o'clock on the previous day, without anything to eat. The Magistrate thought the matter was serious, and referred to Sub-inspector Durham. That officer treated the affair very coolly, saying prisoners awaiting trial never got anything to eat. He said they were supplied with any food they chose to pay for; but; on the other hand, the prisoner said that although the police had money of his in their hands, they refused to procure him any food. The Magis trate was quite dissatisfied with Durham's explanation, and thought the question demanded inquiry. A butcher at Kangaroo Point was. among those summoned last week for not registering his dog. He said ho had no...

£100,000 for £1. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 26 December 1885

£100,000 for £1. Many of my readers will remember the relat10® gave of a (I call it fraudulent) land sale of the estate of one who was advertised as Jas. Wybona;r» but whose real name was James JE*. Bonar—or. full, James Young Bonar. That sale was conducted by Dickson and Sons (the firm of our present—too much present!—Colonial Treasurer), The insolvent estate of James Young Bonar had been kept ip sus pension for years and years by the then assignee, Geo. Raff. For some insecrutable reason it was suddenly sold by auction under the name of " James Wybonar." Old residents of Brisbane, who knew " Bonar" well, hadn't the slightest conception of whom this advt. alluded to. " Bonar," they knew; " Wybonar," was a mystery. He could only be a new chum, and probably his property was of no account. "Billy" Flynn, formerly landlord of thf Globe Hotel, purchased the estate of " Wybonar " for the simple consideration of one pound sterling. There was no competition. "Billy" got it for a pound ster...

A Lucky Get-Out. An Australian Beminisoence. Harry Rollicker, when it was found necessary for lain to find " fresh, fields and pastors new " in the Antipodes, had not been successful in the prosaic occupation of making both ends meet, and the Government office, which had a filairr) upon his services from ten till four, and which saw "h™ depart with more scrupulous punctuality than it saw linn arrive, was not thought a good school for so apt a pupil, or, rather, for a pupil who was apt to overstep the bounds of propriety. He was extremely well-informed on some subjects. His opinion as to the cut Of a coat was beyond dis pute, the shape of his collars irreproachable, and the dexterity with which he retained his eyeglass in his eye, under any and every circumstance, was truly marvellous; but these are not the qualifica tions most suitable for one who has to rough it in Australia.
