This was no easy matter. Again and again as the men closed in on'them, jamming them still farther into the corner, and the cattle-dogs bit their heels, some old cow, or young ruggie, would charge down the main yard, scattering men and dogs in all directions. Each time this happened, the cattle got more and more excited and rowdy j: one old cow in particular wo...

It's there that they made the Mistake. A sensational story comes from a thriving village somewhere up the line, This village is the site of a large hospital, in which institution two, men recently died on the same day. Their bodies were placed together in the same room, and their friends notified* One was a staunch Orangeman, the other as sincere a. Roman Catholic. The friends of the latter were the first to send an undertaker to the hospital. Somehow or other that functionary made a mistake, placed the deceased Orangeman in a coffin and screwed down the lid. The wrong body was taken away and buried with all the sacred rites of the Catholic Church. But just as the grave was being filled in, a messenger arrived in hot haste from the hospital. The Orange? man's friends liad arrived to give him an Orange burial, and had been shocked to see the wrong man. The coffin was disinterred, and the necessary exchange . effected as quickly and quietly as possible. The undertaker is being loudly ...

Look Before You Sign. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 1 August 1885

- Look Before You Sign. The proprietor of an up-country saw-mill is the latest man to say that''all men are liars." He'll get overmuch sweeping condemnation in a few weeks, but just now he is excusable for thinking so. He is a jolly good fellow—too jolly, in fact—and Ms jolli ness makes Kim drink more than is good for him or anyone else. HeJiad been drinking for a long time, and gradually got into the habit of signing any paper which his attorney, one of a local firm of auctioneers, put before him. Fortunately, he was cautioned against this. The other day, he-was passing the auctioneer's office in a half-drunken state, when his attorney called him in and asked him to sign a paper. " Just stick you name there, old man," said Smartty, pointing to the bottom of the document, and holding out a pen. " What-sh (hie) for ?" queried the other, making a grab at the paper. " Oh! it's all right, old fellow. You needn't bother to read it." " Thinksh (hie) will so. Aint (hie) too drunk s' read."...
