The Coming Season. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 17 March 1883

The Coming Season* Too little notice is often taken by .racing dobs when entering into arrangements for their meetings of the intentions of other, clubs, and the result is nearly always the clashing of some two or more meetings, which, in a colony Hke Queansland, where we have at best only a limited numberof horses, is a thing which should especially be guarded against. It is a difficult, matter, more especially in the autumn season, when pretty well all of the principal clubs in .Queensland hold high carnival, to make arrangements wMch will suit all parties, and it is almost a pity that the various secretaries dp notcorrespond togetber. and as far as /possible arrange together as to the order in which their meetings should be brought off. : The present autumn season, is now being; com menced by the Logan,and Albert Jpe^rey Club {one of the most, rising clubs in the colqny) at. Beaudesert, And after* this the next meeting: of anyimportance is tfcat of the Balonne Jockey club, ^hich ...

He was a Christian. IT is astonishinghowlong an odpur of fg&etity clings around some men-how long piety linge®! on their world-worn brow I Who would, halve thought that Ebby Thorne was brimful of exalted religion-a kind of a nineteenth-century crusader; bjit that is so. Mr. Thorne hasln his time^ played many parts, and played them well-for himself.. Few would hare thought that the religion of Jbhe masses was a matter of vital concern to Mr. Thome-but that is so. On Sunday evening last, Mr. Thorne attended Ptofessor Denton's lecture, and the Professor was dealing some what too freely with the imystery ;of ,the Last Supper, according to Mr. Thome's ideas.

When a man changeth his drink, he wisheth and desireth to change his hostelry. These words were written either by Ben Johnson or William Shakespeare. Samuel Johnson would have said, " A fool and his drink( ate soon parted; but he who parteth for a drink is still greater/' They change their drinks, and, growing weary of the Cafl Royal, go elsewhere. Brandy, soda, champagne, ahd Angostura, the' blend is not perhaps so dan^ercus^^tter all.y ' ,' " In for ;a penny in for a pound,"" says oneof them. And he who at the outset wished to walk in the paths of temperance, gives a chuckling laugh and says he'll do " a Scotch." Brandy, soda, champagne and Angostura, and Scotch. Now, in putting* back the glass to the counter, notice for the first time that some strange influence is creeping over him. He puts it down On the match box, and just ...

Personals. "I hope I don't intrude." [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 17 March 1883

Personals. "Z hope I don't intrude." T. B. VAiiiiENTTNE, one of Victoria's most promi y&nent bicyclists, has died of typhoid fever, aged 28 years. * * BEV. W. HIGLETT, who has been lecturing up at Townsville, has said:-"Many great and good men are to be found who are almost entirely regardless of personal appearance, and are often very shabbily dressed." I regard this as rather too personal an observation. THIS is how Miss Pearl Etynge, an American actress, blocks scandal-mongers. She has placarded herself thus :- . " Make no inquiry Into her history; Virtue too pliable. All that you hear of her, . Though very queer of her, Alas! is reliable." AT Bathurst, N.S.W., Bishop Quinn, brother of the late B.C. bishop here, was robjbed by a faithful son of the church-one, John Ryan, who took a fancy to the episcopal portmanteau, which contained a golden chalice, robes, and other Mass riicknacks.

International Exhibition for Queensland. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 17 March 1883

International Exhibition for Queensland. Next year, the colony will have become twenty-five years old- barring the comet, Wiggins' pets. Mother Shipton, &c., from each and all of which may the good Lord deliver us. It would be a glorious triumph, if young Queensland could commemorate the termina- tion of her first quarter of a century of independent government, by holding an International Exhibition. South Australia is preparing to so mark its jubilee. The pageantry and success of New South Wales and Victoria are still fresh in our minds. But if Queens- land could hold such a celebration next year, it would be the only colony that has achieved the feat of draw- ing exhibits from all parts of the world, at the early age of twenty-five. It can be done. Though now the time is brief, I believe there is machinery at hand by means of which a successful Exhibition could be inaugurated (say) by August or September next year. It would be a grand project. I have heard it hinted that S...
