A Crowned Murderess. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 10 March 1883

A Crowned Murderess. THE ex-empress Eugenie, of France, is a woman who is presuming on the toleration which the world i accords her, and the deference conventionally paid to her sex. When her husband died of a broken heart, and a ruined constitution, and her only son was tilled in a war which did not concern him, mpst people ,were willing to forget what slie was and to remember only what she had suffered. A tigress robbed of her cubs is a pathetic object; but when this woman i-etiirns to the country which she and her husband ruined, and deliberately lends her aid to intrigues, Which have for their object the tearing open of the half-healed wounds of unhappy France, it is time to put aside the maudlin sentiment with which she has been invested. We are afraid to teach history in our schools, so there may be some young Australians who do not know what the mother of the "prince who died in Zulu land %?is. We will tell them, She was a young and unscmpulous Spanish aristocrat who married ...

Queensland Figaro "Fear God; Speak evil of none; Stick to the Truth; and never be done." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, MARCH 10, 1883. Heads I win, Tails you lose. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 10 March 1883

Fear God 5 Speak evil of none; Stick to the Trutli; and never be done." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, MARCH 10, 1883. Heads I win, Tails you lose. REALLY those Victorians are incorrigible. Some of the candidates at the late general election adopted as an item in their programme " intercolonial free trade, protection against all the 3 e it of the world/' and they had silly dupes who accepted the declaration. As our Premier told them, we are likely to be just as selfish as they are. Whatever policy we adopt in the future, whether we become protectionists or free-traders, or remain between the two, as at present, it will not be intercolonial free trade in the Victorian fashion. Protection is a policy for which something may be said. If we clap sufficiently heavy duties on-say-im ported boots, we can secure to bootmakers living in our towns the advantage of making all the boots ;we require, and they in their turn will buy produce from our farmers with the money they make. Thus, at the cost of pay...

A Peep at the Shows. "You were not at the play to-night, Don Carlos.How happened it?"—The Spanish Student [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 10 March 1883

A Peep .at the Shows. " You were not at the play to-night, Don Carlos, happened it-?"-The Spanish Student THE Pollard little 'unsjseeni as bran new as ever. This is not chaff j corn-sequently it's wheat. Praise is sweet always. In Brisbane, the Pollard youngsters always draw like a linseed poultice. They are full of fun and their parts, and, what is better, all parts of the house are full alao. La Fille de Madame Angot was a success. Viewed with stage accessories, the children look much older than they are. Most actresses look younger on the stage, but these Liliputions seem to swell out to the first development of budding womanhood, and are about as seductive as it is possible for Btage fairies to be. I gave my heart bang away to Clairette (Miss May Pollard) from the jump, and would have hated that odious "hairdresser and gentleman," Pomponnet, hadn't I known that he was only Miss Bella'- Stuart* By the way, Bella had a cold. That was the only cold thing in the piece. All the rest ...

Sporting Gossip. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 10 March 1883

Snorting Gossip. BY HBBICIT. I HAVE to thank the secretary of the Mackay Turf Club for the programme of their annual races, which take place in .June next* I referred before to this .fixture. but had not seen the programme, in extenso, and I find that it is in every, -way a credit to i inonjEgr being distributed with a liberal hand and at the same time with plenty of variety. To the M.T.C. Handicap there are 250 SOTS, added, of which 100 is the gift of Mr. W. H. Paxton. This race is ran over two miles; and a half, a trifle too far to my thinking^ However, there are two more handicaps to each of which 100 SOYS. are added, and which are ran over a mile and a half and two miles respectively. Dates of entry, etc., will be found above, and to these I will again draw attention in due time. The total amount of added money comes to £820. T was out at Eagle Farm last Saturday to see What' was going on in the training, world and; I found Walsh at work* with Mr. Mooney's string. Adamantea, wit...
