The Snubbed Snip. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 7 April 1883

The Snubbed Snip. He was a snip Of unsymmetrical. Pedestrianship; , His legswere bow and all Inclined to trip. And he did love a milliner, And thought it was returned by her. At Eastertide, He to ok a holiday; To Sandgate hied To revel in sea-spray; And what his pride To find at Sandgate that his " own " Was also sucking in ozone! They strolled along < The headlands o'iir the shore; The birds'glad song Was ne'er so sweet before.

The Seven Stages of Intemperance. VII. THE MORE THAN BITTER END. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 7 April 1883

The Seven Stages of Intemperance. VII. THE MORE THAN BXTTJEB END. What may be termed the alcoholic sleep is most peculiar of its kind. It is a heavy sleep-a sleep of uneasy dreams that crush themselves on the be wildered imagination. It is a nightmare of elephants and hippopotami, instead of the regulation wild bull or irritated cow. But it iB a sleep that does not last long. And he awakes at last. Yes, the candle is burning on the washstand. That he can see fprcertain. But why should his clothes be strewn about P The rays of the sun come through the window, and light on his muddy boots. What a dreadful thirst he has! What a throbbing at the temples! What a sensation of deadly nausea, joined with a pain down the side and a heaviness in his limbs! How hot his hands! He tries turning on the other side; the slight action sends his brain whirling round! He groans ! He will get out of bed! He will not be beaten thus! He can just manage to do so, and that is all. He stumbles up to the loo...

No title [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 7 April 1883

A araw poet* up Mackay way, has just introduced himself to me, by sending1 me what he calls- the "Drover's Dream," which lie dedicates " To Mar geratee." . He starts right at the object of his dedication thus .' Dear girl, I write beneath a tree, , # And fair indeed is the scenery, Of palm and fern, and beauty rair (sic), Nourished by Nature's fostering care." Then he is inspired that " Margeratee" asks him, " What's this to me ?" And in reply, he yanks out *' Nothing, my dear, 'tis the opening of my tale, Liston (sic), the subject shall not he stale." After which promise, he goes on to dream under the tree, that " Margeratee" and himself are having a fine old time in the " old, old story " line. As thus . '* Methought we wandered, I and you, . Wheir («c) tallest palm,trees meekly (!) grew, And there discussing the old, old theme, Old time he quickly flew, Untill (sic) there sprang a gale, Which made all nature quail." That was too bad of the gale to, make gome of all nature. : Howe...

He wanted to handcuff Green, but the latter was more knowing than his name would imply. Next, he invited some native troopers to exercise their muscles on the ser geant-major, but the sable staff de...

"Physical Reverence." [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 14 April 1883

Physical Reverence." THE community is deeply indebted to Mr. W. Gr. Marsh, and to those gentlemen who supported him, at the meeting held on Monday night, at the Pro testant Hall, when Mr. Marsh delivered an address on u Physical Reverence," for drawing public attention to our Contagious Diseases Act. On the present occasion, I am not going to enter into the question as to whether the aim of the Act is beneficial, or whether it could be made to fulfil the wholesome mission to accomplish which it was introduced. Neither will I attempt to '.examine the statement so often put for ward by ministers of religion and other philan thropists, t^kt all attempts to legislate upon the Social Evil have wrought more mischief than they have effected good. I shall content myself in this articlc with saying-and I make the assertion without fear of contradiction-that our Contagious Diseases Act, as now in operation in Brisbane, is both oppres sive and tyrannical. It is a damnable instrument of terror,...

Now then, Inspector Lewis. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 14 April 1883

Now then, Inspector Lewis. THE other day, Inspector Lewis stated in the Police Court that he had never seen anything so horrible, nor heard of anything so degrading as the woman-fight pen-pictured by FIGABO. " And/' he added, *' I have been over 20 years in the,force." Past and present rakes must have smiled at the innocence of this 20 years-standing police officer. Those whose business takes them frequently out at night, must have pondered on the quality of the Inspector's eye sight. However, the matter seems to have been let die a natural death, after a fruitless hubbub. Just so. Let us go easy, 60 long as we maintain a. fictiti ous moral reputation for this our city. Let us cloak up our faults, and only exhibit our Sunday mask. But what do I see in the daily press ? An account of how, on Saturday night last, a mob of nearly a hun dred men and lads hunted three inoffensive Cingalese up and down Queen Street and North Quay, and jubilantly tried to stone them.

Figaro Secret Police. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 14 April 1883

Figaro Secret Police. CABLEGRAMS a few days since told us that citizens df London had banded themselves into on association of secret political police, in orderto meet on its own ground the dynamite disturbers of the public mind. This was the necessary outcome of the situation. Outrages were being attempted, and anonymous threats were received on every hand. Englishmen are not accustomed to sit tamely down in fear and tremb ling under tyranny, oven though that tyranny take the form of secret assassination associations. Phleg matic and slow to anger in the extreme, Englishmen, once roused, sweep tyrants off the face of the earth, and mean, skulking, behind-the-liedge tyrants will simply stand no show with a secret organisation of Englishmen. Strange as it may sound to those estimable citizens who potter on peacefully from day to day, like a horse going his monotonous round in a mill, and socially and mentally "shake hands all round," our moral city of Brisbane can furnish a social pa...
