ROUNDABOUT. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 1 August 1885

The D. N. Standard (Townsvvlle), has gone into \" hifalutin " once more. A half-column article com mences thus;—"There is no portion of the arduous work of the writer of fiction more trying to the author than that in which he depicts the passing away of one of his characters into that purer and better world which we all look forward to as a reward for our trials and tribulations in this." Then come quotations from Dickens, Pliny, " A Man," "An old writer" (who has not been in North Queensland), Dickens (again), Shakespeare (again), and several un known authors; then when the readers interest is At blast furnace intensity," he is let down easily and gently with this (not an advertisement). "Those who attend MeBsrs. Smith and Walker's auction mart at eleven o'clock this morning, and listen to the per suasive voice of that eloquent knight of the hammer, Mr. Ackers, will have wasted their time, if not only once, but oftener, Mr. Ackers does not say to liiin, I* Your bid, sir; no higher ...

Gilt-edged Parsons v. Salvation Army. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 1 August 1885

Gilt-ed^ed Parsons v. Salvation Army. At Ipswich, last Sunday, the clergyman officiating at St. Paul's had a few words to say about the Salva , tion Army. And he said them in the style in which a high-toned, gilt-edged and full-salaried clergyman of an aristocratic church, mi^ht be expected to do. He complained that the Salvation Army dragged religion through the mire; and, therefore, as a quid pro quo, he proceeded to drag Salvation Army through the slough. I, too, have a word or two to say about the' Salva tion Army. I am no admirer of its proceedings. It is no church for me. I'm too high-toned for the cornet-man and the Hallelujah Lassies altogether. I have a notion they're too vulgar for me. It may be ; it may not be. But are they too vulgar for all ? I say, No. Let us fine gentlemen then go to our own high-toned churches, with their high-backed cushioned pews, iand drowsy sermons. Biut why should we prevent those whom we choose to call too low for us, from having a Meeting Hous...

Military and Naval Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 1 August 1885

Military and Naval Notes. Officers in command of Defence Force or Volun teer Companies* and Privates of any corps, are in vited to forward any memoranda of general interest relating to ^Defence or Volunteer doings, for Inser tion in ^hts column. Personal Anecdotes and reminiscences will also be bighly acceptable. j "With/very deep regret, Figaro has to announce the death of Ulysses Simpsofa Grant, ex-President of the United States, and lately a General on the retired list of the U.S. army. His life is worth,a study. "Without influential friends, and himself his very worst friend, plain in person, and still plainer in manner, he yet attained a height in the estima tion of his countrymen and the world, even superior to that of Washington. General Grant died on Thursday, 23rd of July, after as many ups and downs as ever fell to the lot of any one man. U. S. Grftnt; was borii'on the 27th April, 1822, at Point Pleasant, Ohio. His father was a poor farmer, but he must have had some politi...

The Toowoomba Scientific Expedition. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 1 August 1885

The Toowoomba Scientific Expedition. An interesting scientific expedition left Toowootnba, the other day, bound on a naturalistic, geological, and general, tour of inspection to the summit of Table Top Mountain. The way was long, the wind was cold, But these explorers all were bold, Their constitutions stout and gay, Had laughed at many a stonier way, And they had sworn they ne'er would stop Till they had topped the Table Top. . Great Scott. And so they started. The scientists included in the party consisted of Field-Marshal H. L. Grooms Ex-, General Black, Baron von McCarthy, (Astronomer Royal), Eerr Joe Booth (Government Botanist; no re lation to Temperance Booth— in fact, the temperance booth is quite unknown to him), and Mynheer 3£ams botham (Government Geologist). The procession moved from Toowootnba at 9 a.m., fully equipped with scientific instruments, including kerosene oil, acqua-. fortis, Old Molasses, Old Rye, jam tarts and oyster pies.

Theme for Booth. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 1 August 1885

Theme for Booth. The police are often engaged in what seem to many people petty raid^s upon public-houses for sell ing Btriay glasses of beer on Sundays.. @f : wi?rsej ijfc is the ,law that such Sunday trading' jcW |)d putij. ished, and the law must be respected. At the same time, the crusade should be carried out evenly all round. There should be no favored publicans. The police should not shut their eyes upon the doings of particular houses. 1 know houses where streams of peoBle may b.e seenigoillg, in (and comfng ouj; wiping their mouths and "su&king their moustaches"), with the policeman on beat standing unconcernedly across the street, calmly watching them. I have known times when special Sundays-trading raid has been made from "police headquarters, and, by sotiae mys— terious process, <he landlords of favored houses, which generally do a. large Sunday business, have ap peared to know that there was tobearaid, and at what hour the raicL would be, when, of cou...

Football. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 1 August 1885

Football, v-. bx warrigax. The Albert Sports Ground was the scene of the last selection match for the forthcoming inter colonial games under the Rugby Rules, the sides being captained by Prlng Roberts and Durham. Play was not commenced till late in the afternoon, which again shows Jfciow lax our Brisbane footballers are in not turning up to time. Tom Pratten, Pring Roberts, Durham, Michael, Adolph Feez, Byron, Baylies, and those other two Rugby celebrities Hickson and Anderson, all played up well for their respective sides. The tries for goal were a sad failure, Adolph Feez being amongst the number. Would it not be a good idea for this part of the game to receive some close attention during the next three weeks, as most of the players can run, tackle, and dribble weU, but their goal kicking is very deficient indeed. As the outcome of Saturday's match, the following, fifteen have deen chosen by the Selection Committee, subject to certain reserva tions and powers vested in them;—Messr...
