X think it was the poet Seats who wrote, " A thing of beauty is a joy for ever," but Mr. Keats was either a very young, or a yery single man at the time, and consequently never had the felicity of observing the extraordinary conduct of a woman on a " cleaning-up" day. I bayp often thought from the similarity M the manner in which all ladies set about this exhilirating pastime, that it must be a. sort of instinct belonging to the sex, and that they can no. more keep, themselves from prancing round at least onpe a week, and driv ing the male portion of their household into untimely graves with the aid of wet mops, ajjd cold-cabbage dinners, than a billy-goat can refrain, from butting at. a scarlet petticoat, or a spiteful: jackass can reeti am hifns^lf .from kickinga tunnel: through the stomach of an unguarded admirer. Thto$ is a certain formula to be/pbseryed on. these occasions which, I am sure, would make Mr. Kcate think twice before he sacri ficed, ;$*, reputation for veracity by ...

CHAPTER III. SENTENCED. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 13 January 1883

CHAPTER lir. SENTENCED; Thb defended prisoner If he lias nothing else usually has the satisfaction of a straggle for escape through his barrister. If he gets off well and good; if he is found guilty he is prepared for it. He did his best to win but fate was against him. The man who is well known and means to plead guilty has a severe ordeal to go through. lie may have occupied a good position in life. So much the worse for him. He meets a sea of faces mere or less familiar as he mounts from the stairs to enter the dock. Every second is an hour; he pleads guilty in a low and trembling voice, listens to tile judge's homily on the disgraceful position he is in with unhealing ears and feels a sense of relief when sentence is pronounced. (To be Continued.) * Dii. Pubcell says, " Business is business, but some times it's hard to.be dragged out of your bed in the small hours of the morning. About 4 a.m. last Sun day he was aroused by a fisrious ringing of the bell. Hastily throwing on his ...

A Peep at the Shows. not at the play to-night, Don Carlos. How happened it ?"-The Spanish Student. THE Mastodon Minstrels wound up their season in the Theatre Boyal on Wednesday night, and subsequently left for Maryborough, Gympie, and the northern cir cuit generally. Their latest effort here," Pin-A-4 in Black/' was a decided improvement upon their pre vious performances; and it's to be hoped they'll re member that fact when they return to Brisbane about next March, as they intend doing-bar accidents. THE Ipswich correspondent of tlie Courier says, " we have had some splendid showers of rain." If Mr. Griffith were there at the time, one of the other corre spondents would have deeply regretted "the disastrous downpour which marred the complete success of the ovation." * # . BEARING in mind the fact that I was bom oil the 6th instant, I don't Intow what I could have done to deserve the avalanche of almanacs that has come down on my devoted head.

XX.—THE COUHTSHIP OF THE PRINCE OP WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 13 January 1883

XX.-THE COUHTSHIP OF THE PRINCE OP WALES. IT is many years ago since the Danish maiden, ^liile on a friendly visit to the British Court, sti-ayed- at leisure through the verdant glades of Windsor. " 'Twas in the prime of summer time," and Natui*e wore her gayest dress; the gentle zephyrs softly whispered through the stately ancient oaks: the streamlets softly muvmured; the air was laden with the fragrant breath of flowers; while the soaring lark, far in the brilliant blue, was pouring down its flood of song, which in the stranger-maiden's ear ran " (3:101/, glory." On went the maiden. She was silently poring over a little well-bound volume; she was thinking only of the children of the poet; nor ever dreamt but she was quite alone, when Albert Edward stood before her. " you are reading," said the Prince. "Yes," replied the Princess, and-closed the book. " May I ask who is the author so highly honoured ?" "Shakspere," answered the royal maiden. "And you are reading " " Guess/' . ^Bomi...

THE NAKED TRUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 13 January 1883

THE NAKED TKUTH. THEBE is no greater nonsense talked than all the rubbish we hear about land grant railways being dangerous because they will put land into the hands of big capitalists. That they will do so is of course evident, where the non sense comes in is the pretence that this is in any way different from what has gone, on for years, and is going on now. Four-fifths of the land already soldTias gone to speculative capi talists, and pretty well on their own terms. Look at the list of freehold estates catalogued for sale by any of the large auctioneers, and find out how they were acquired, and what equivalent the state got for them. In the coast country, where rain falls frequently, and water is pretty abundant, the small settlers have had a little chance in the scramble. They have got hold of the leavings, when the capitalists have had their pick, with perhapo here and there a gOOCL iUinp ]U8U tU JveojJ Mtvui ^uicu. nuu ouauiv some land Minister to lay his hand on his heart and...

Queensland Figaro "Fear God; Speak evil of none; Stick to tne Truth; and never be done." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, JANUARY 13, 1883. THE WORKING MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 13 January 1883

(|):ae,ensMr Jfipw '' Tear God; Speak evil of none; Stick to tne Truth; and never be done." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, JANUARY 13,1883. THE WORKING MAN. IT IS desirable that we should define at the outset, the position that Figaro intends to take in regard to the " working man," meaning by the term, the workers, whether artisans, or un skilled labourers, who hire by the week and /perform manual labor. In the first place we j abjure once and for all the epithet "poor," The J working man in Australia generally, and iu Queensland particularly, is pretty nearly mas ter of the situation. Capitalist and workman divide the land between them, and if it comes to a tussle between the two, the betting is gene j rally three to one in favour of the workman. j The workman here has political power entirely j in his own hands, and if he really wants any thing within the power of Parliament to grant, he can compel the legislation to give it. He is better off in all respects,-that is, he gets far bet ter pr...

" I* wanted to tell you, Miss Flora, to-night, what I've been wanting to say for a long time, and that is, that I am sure-I mean-I think-I believe that it's a lovely evening, isn't it, Miss Flora ?" " Yes." "But, I was going to Bay, I hope you won't think me too bold, Miss Flora." " No, I'm sure I shan't think that of you, Mr. Simperton." " Well, the fact is, you know, Miss Metcalfe, I hope you won't think me too forward, but I do feel, Miss Metcalfe, that-that-it's not quite as cold to-night as it was last week."
