A Peep at the Shows. "You were not at the play to-night, Don Carlos. How happened it?" [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 25 July 1885

I A Peep at the Shows. You were not at the play to-night, Don Carlos. How happened it?"—The Spanish Studeni, At the Theatre Royal on Friday evening Bouci cault's Irish drama the " Shaughran," "was produced by the Marian Willis Company to a somewhat poorer house that the well-known excellence of the play might have led one to expect. The audience who did attend were highly pleased with the acting of Miss Marian Willis, as Moya Doolan, and J. W. Sweeney as Gorry Kinchela, while the laughter was loud and contiuous at the absurdities of Wiseman, Keogh, and Arrowsmith, who respectively repre sented Mrs. O'Kelly, her son (the Shaughran) and Harvey Duff, The "Shaughran" was repeated on the following evening, and on Monday, with equal success, when there was a rather more numerous attendance. At the Theatre Royal on Tuesday, "Mad" occupied the boards, in which Miss Marian Willis, as the injured wife, was as successful as usual. On Wednesday night Sardou's comedy of " Friends" was produced, ...

Football. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 25 July 1885

Football, By Wabrigal. The Albert Sports ground was occupied last Satur day by scratch teams of the players from the ranks of the Union Clubs—Hickson's team consisting of 15 players, whilst Durham's numbered 20. Play was, started late in the afternoon, owing to the ground not being marked off, the gentleman, on the com mittee to whom this duty was assigned failing to perform it. The play throughout was good, though some of the older players were not up to their usual standard. As the Selection Committee have to wa^ch and judge^ another trial .match on Saturday next, it: would be unfair to them to criticise, at any length, the play of last Saturday, beyond saying; that the ' ' Maori,'' Durham, Orr, Adolph Feez, Fred. Hardgrave, Bayries, Byron and Taylor should receive favorable notiee from the Selection Committee. The Southern visitors will leave Sydney on the 15 th of next month, and play their .first match on the follow ing Wednesday (Exhibition day). The team has not been definite...

Wise Aunt Letty. p W' I \ i H h. » \i ? ^ ; \ V • ':1 You nave driven away .the only man I ever did or ever can love. You have been more cruel than death to mie!" v .• \ The speaker stood, with flashing eyes and flushed: cheeks, regardingwith angry defiance a pale little woman, who sat with meekly folded hands in a low armchair, and moved her hps pathetically as if in mute prayer. The patient face and sad brown eye®, the soft bands of grey hair falling below her lace cap, made; a picture swieet to look upon; but to Dollie Dane the little woman was simply a Nemesis, and she had ; done her, a wrong irreparable. : When the passionate reproaches of the girl had; ceased, the woman, questioning rather than reply-" ing, said— ^ s :• s'% ■■ $ ■ "Did I drive Harry*Denver away? : Dollie, you know the substance of our conversation.

An otitcatet,a leper, who ruck blindly back at the civilization that crashed im beneath its remorseless onward march. To him there was no (tod* save an awful resistless leBtiny; no hope, save to drovrn unbearable ills in drunken debauch; no hell, but a black, unfathomable chasm, only feared because it appalled; no. lieaVen,: but a cushioned, warmed and lighted church, where there was not even standing room for such as he. There ace sacred things in a]ll men's lives, but to him all things good were unknown mysteries. Speak of his mother, and it only awakened memories of a bloated hag, whose fiendish cruelty had cursed iris young life until he, the stronger, could guard and protect himself. Speak of his wife and children. Blind fool! From this glorious civilization of ours, we disfcil a scuni i...

Tennis. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 25 July 1885

Tennis. "There will soon be nothing talked about but lawn tennis. From May to October, every second woman you meet In the suburban roads or country lanes carries in her hand a tennis bat, to which are strapped two flat-footed, heelless; india-rubber-soled shoes; and nearly every manencountered in the same thoroughfares is clad in white flannel trousers and. shirt. The amount of time that is given up to this game in England every year is considerable. The greatest idlers at lawn-tennis are, perhaps, army officers and clergymen. In both cases, duty must be neglected in the cause of this form of recreation. I^was a common scandal at one time that the pre sent Bishop of Newcastle lived in white flannel, and that when he wasn't scoring a twister" he was riding a tricycle. We dare say he has to give up his white flannel now. As for the army officers, they may find, should war be proclaimed, that had they devoted as much time to the science of their profes sion as they did to the practice ...

What Hie is.' But & change comes into this brutish life. A spiritual tornado stakes its stagnant surface, and ? churns its muddy waters into sparkling foam. lie has been the despised of religion, and now religion, in a new and.sparkling garb, seeks him and wrestles with him. The churches have cast him out for ever and for. ever, but fanaticism—outgrowth of ignorance, bastard-chilcl of conviction — pierces the mist that befogs his soul, and claims him as its own. It c6mes into his life with: thundering drum and sounding trumpet/with doggerel songs which even he enjoys and rollicking tunes which catch even his fancy. It gives him something wherewith to appease that aching void, that dumb yearning after the In finite, which alone, separated him from the brute. It cannot lift him up to God; it brings God down to him. It fills him with wondrous fancies and fearful dreams ; it caters to his lowest passions and strikes fire from that ,very ignorance and misery which made him what h...
