The King of the Roast. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Morning Post — 6 December 1907
The King of the Roast. Let oilier fowls each weok appear, One only rules each closing year ; We hail him, as we drink the toast King Goose, who rules thc roost and roast. 'Hie Christmas goose docs not differ from any other goose, except in regard to the time it reaches thc executioner. Tho goose in Germany is an important national asset, and . a l uge trade is done in the exportation of geese to Russia, which eats them in prefer- ence to any other bird of the barnyard. Every nation joins iss-'.e on the question of a gnose-infected palate at Christmas, the Eng- lish no less than any other, and we of the/ gtates av.d colonies join in the procession aa a matter of savoury duty. It has often puzzled thc thoughtful why a simpleton ia called an ass, since an ass is among the most sagacious of four-footed creatures ; and similarly it has worried them to know why a foolish person is called a goose, seeing that it occupies a like exalted position among the feathered bipeds. In any case, how ...

CORRESPONDENCE WOOTHAKATA ELECTION. (To the Editor). [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Morning Post — 6 December 1907
DESPONDENCE WOOTHAKATA ELECTION. (To thc Editor)^ Sir,-I saw in a recent issue of a back country paper that Mr. Woods would not be opposed at the coming election. Is it not rather soon to be so positive, or is it a- piece of bluff? Short as the time is since last elec- tion, things have so changed thjat the majority that polled for Mr. Woods are of little or no significance. At that time there was a boom on, and hundreds of strangers were ar- riving from all parts. Mr. Woods saw all this, hastened to the dis- trict, improved thc shining hour by running round among them, collect- ing the names and duly placing them 'on the roll. It was as good as a play to watch Mick amongst a crowd ot" new-comers. He would pay the grcntest attention to all and sundry, and if some one among them took exception to some statements of his own, Mick would adroitly turn it otï by stating "By dad, you may bc right, I never looked al tho matter Sjefore Irom that point;" or, "Oh, well, hang it, it's dry Twit...
