Mount Britton. PAST AND PRESENT. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 25 July 1885

Mount Britton. Past and Pbesent. It is a common saying all over Queensland, see Nebo and die. This originated before there Vas a4 place beyond, but now Mount '*• Nebo, and was once a lively place of fibout 1100 residents, now it is reduced to about 50 all told;' There have been constant departures of residents! and even " our only Teddy" has gone to sugaropolis for a spell. :• i So poor Buffer Point, and the great reefing locality, including Reefer's Point, has only one left to do the mashing biz. It's rather rough on him, as all the feminine gender have disappeared from that quarter, which, no doubt, accounts for his gay and festive appear ance at intervals in the township proper. But a little bird has whispered that it will not be r so always. Capital is ghat's the,matter, and some^wilh be forthcoming, and then the " Sabbath Calm" will rub off some^of it6^euin?ilated rust, and awaken the Brittonians with ils whfetle once more. _ - v And then a. revivals of the old institutions; gl...

Where Does the Liberalism Come in? [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 25 July 1885

Where Does the Liberalism Come in ? I haven't much Opinion of the present Govern ment, but I did think that their professed Libe ralism (!) would have kept them, from proposing a university member in the Election Bill now before Parliament. Apart from: the folly of building ah elephant house before they have the elephant, I . can't at this moment think : of an idea more repug nant to the average Queenslander. We can Btand royalty pretty well, when it keeps 14000 miles away, but the attempt to foster upon us, a democratic people —an evil to which the nam<es of the English people are notoriously opposed, seems like the act of a lunatic.

Sunlight and Shadow. No. I.—A QUEENSLAND TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 25 July 1885

Sunlight and Shadow. ^ J ' ^ No. Iwii QUEENSLAND TOWN. ; Si Pieu n* existiat Ufau&rait Pinvebter* saydj;. the: philosopher of Ferney. It is not a bad axiobi to; say \ that if a God did not exist it would - b6 ne^essary to invent one; but if Voltaire had lived in Queensland in this year of grace, he may find it necessary to invent, a God, but not a typical Queensland town. They are as numerous as the sins of a: veteran poli tician, and they are as original in their own way as t)ie Bard of Avon was in his.. 'Here the resemblance unto Shakespeare ends. The great dramatist is always entertaining—a Queensland town -is not. There are times when you are seized with a fit of ennui and wish yourself thousands of miles away. The galvanized roofs of the peculiarly built shanties pall upon the sight, and the KeaVy sand or mud of the ill-formed streets weary the body.

What He might have been. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 25 July 1885

What He might have heen* Ay! and, when civilization crumbles, we shall think what he, who caused this ruin, might have been, and how just is the Nemesis which, avenges all things. Society rolled in wealth, and would have let him perish from cold and hunger. Society strained after universal dominion and kicked him, like a dog, beneath her feet. Society possessed that knowledge which the sages of old would have died to learn, she denied him even the crumbs, and left him with the brutes. Society preached the religion of Christ; to the heathen, but within her portals were fellow-men who did not know the name of God. Society drove him from her to darkness and des pair' Is it a wonder that he turned and killed her ? And oh! what he might have been, for he was a man with all his vices and brutality. That he. j inherited more (shame to society) but his manhood was his gift from God the Creator. He had a brain which society might have used | and profited by. He had an arm, from which society...

A Dog Fight. A. sporting hotel-keeper in Roma has "been very badly "had." And all about a dog. Ar stranger arrived at his cabooze the other day, with an ill favored mongrel, but managed to give Boniface to understand that the said mongrel—•" Dan'l" by name —could fight ''some/' The snorting hotel-keeper immediately proposed a match between " Dan'!-" sail# a healthy-looking customer with a touqh Qf the buU in him. "DanTs" owner agreed and stakes were duly planked. But the wily stranger first of all retired with *' Dan'l," who was a reddog wh^nlie entered, ? but was redder than ever when the fight came off. The landlord's dog was in great fighting humor and tackled "Dan'l" viciously. But he didn't stay long. He took one hold of " DanTs " throat and then reconsidered the matter. Instead of fight ing on, he commenced to paw his nose and eyes, whereupon " Dan'l" laid in his own work, and, to the astonishment of the landlord, exhibited the spectacle of a mongrel whipping a half-bred bull ...

Clear Him or Bounce Him. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 25 July 1885

Clear Him or Bounce Hint. Burketown is agitated. It has a very moraljH>lice sergeant, so modest that he won't go out with naked hands; and it is the home of Mrs. Keid, a*espect able lady, and married to boot.; Mr. Keid was out one night, and next morning Mrs. Keid wanted to summon the sergeant for breaking into her house., at midnight. Police Magistrate M* Arthur refused to see it that way, and a summons for damages was afterwards dismissed. A public subscription Jias been taken up, however, to see the thing through, and though I don't .know much; about the matter, it seems to a man on a rail, as I am, that ^ the sergeant is right, he ought to be fully cleared; while, if Mrs. Keid is right, a coat of tar and feathers is just his fit. * At one of the lading stores in Toowoomba, a mother and daughter were standing at the counter. The young gentleman behind, bent on flattering the mother into making a purchase, said :r-w Do you intend selecting the material for a dress for yourself,...

Blue Ribbon Booth. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 25 July 1885

Blue Ribbon Booth, A correspondent writes i—wTHbt lectures of this celebrated temperance advocate have been attended by crowded audiences throughout the week, and the result of his labors have been that hundreds of people have permitted pieces of blue ribbon to be appended to the lapels of their coats. There can be no objection to people donning the blue ribbonif they think, proper to do so, and, in fact, in many cases it may be essential, where men cannot say f* No," when they have taken sufficient. . On looking, around at the audiences which have attended the lectures of G-eneral Booth, it can plainly be seen that three-fourths of Iris auditory arei people belong ing to the various Methodist ohurches, while the s balance are composed of all sects, who chiefly go from motives of curiosity. At .one meeting, so says one report, no less than 200 temperance people took the blue ribbon. This is all very well, but goes to show that the very people whom these lectures are to benefit ^re n...
