Writing oil Stilts. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 8 August 1885

Writing oil Stilts. The Brisbane^Observer base vldehtly got a new ink slinger, and, as evidently/liltes to trot him out.: The new man: is it geyser ofgrandiloquence, an aqueduct of affectation. He is one of those cork-soled individuals ! •who never —see" anything, but always " observe," or" "perceive1." He never "understands," but always r " comprehends.'' He , never " seizes," he " apprehends." He never fr explains," but " eluci dates." He never " says, a ..thing,'' but " makes an observation." In fact, if ever there was a a literary fop onstilts, this genius is he. He gave the public a taste of his quality in Monday's Observer, in which he scintillated under the heading of " Saturday Night Scenes." He is no ordinary man,* believe me. * ^ - Ordin^iy I'mjen walked out on. Saturday night "after tea," but this gifted nonsuch didn't per ambulate (that's his method of locomotion, I guess) Queen-street until, as he says, " the vespernal meal had been disposed of and night had fairly desc...

"Ring the Bell Watchman.' [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 8 August 1885

Ring the Bell Watchman.' : Maryborough cannot boast much of the first-fruits of her political slayerj in returning, along with Wide Bay, the Griffith bunch. She is (according to a traveller who recently visited the place) a deserted village. ... ■ V< • . • With empty streets, Where no life beats, Save here and there a few stray poley cows j Where, slinking rats, Dodge drowsy cats, ...."% And playful dogs hunt billy-goats that browse. In lazy lull, v The town sleeps dull, r No sign is there of great, creative pelf; In street, on quay, One soul you'll see— And that same lonely creature is yourself. Discounting the sweeping picture here drawn of deserted Maryborough, it is a fact, nevertheless; that that town is now a centre of business stagnation. A traveller who has been putting in brief periods of time at various Northern ports, was so smitten with the somnolence of Maryborough, that he could not resist giving expression to his feelings in the follow ing manner.
