A Peep at the Shows. " You were not at the play to-night, Don Corlos. How happened it?"—The Spanish Student. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 14 April 1883

A Peep at the Shows. " You were not at the play to-night, Don Corloa. How happened it ?"-The Spanish Studer>.i Tub Folks are here, and open on Monday night. They have run such successful dramatic seasons in Melbourne and Sydney that I am led to expect much. We all know Signor Mojeroni, the business manager, whose singing, by the way, is as artistic as the pro nunciation of his name is quaint to English people. And, by-the-way, here's a conundrum: - If " M-a-j-e-r-o-n-i" is pronounced " M'rony," should not " crony " be spelt " c-a-j-e-r-o-n-i F " As thus There ia a gaySignor Majeroni, A dramatic and musical cajeroni, The same with the Folks. In Brisbane now stolks, And their verdict of him is, "No dajeroni!" I expect the last word is a caulker, and I had better put the reader out of his agony at once by translating it-"Nodrone he!" The Polks-Mr. J. B. and Mrs. Julia-come from America. They give "The Strategist "-a play that had a run in the States for over 800 nights. Amongst othe...

"More light." [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 14 April 1883

"Move light." ON Monday night, the large composing-room, the publishing-room and staircase of the Government printing office were illuminated with the Edison incan descent electric light. There wore twenty burners of 8 candle power, thirty of 16-candle power, and one of 32 eandle power. \_~En parentlihe I may note that I have been asked to point out and correct an absurd mistake made by. the ,Courier. That journal said:-"Some twenty of these (burners) being equal to eight candles, thirty to sixteen candles, and one equal to thirty-two candles." From this it would be surmised that it took twenty Edison burners to rival eight candles iu brilliancy, and thirty to rival sixteen candles. Whereas, each of the smaller burners is equal to eight candles, therefore twenty are equal to one-hundred and sixty candles; and each of the next size is equal to sixteen candles, there fore thirty are equal to four-hundred and eighty candles.] The burners were fed by an 83-horse power dynamo machine, dr...

The event came off at Hermit Park on the 31st March, tlie distance being 200 yards.

He justified the confidence placed in him, and won by 7 or 8 feet in 21 seconds. . Annual meeting of members of the Brisbane Gym nasium took place last sight (Thursday) too late to enable us to notice the proceedings this week.

A BBCENT iBsue of the Gympie Times> had one side dated April 4th, and t'other March 4th. These political banquets do demoralise printers so. # * # A Supreme Court Judge generally judges that his power is absolute. So it is -sometimes. The other day, Judge Pring fined a juror named Burrell, «£2 for non-attendance, adding that if the delinquent didn't attend the following morning he (the judge) would "find means to make him!"

Cricket. "Jovial, jocund, jolly bowlers, As if they were the world's controllers." —BARNABY. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 14 April 1883

Cricket. "Jovial, jocund, jolly bowlers, - . As if tliey were th© world's controllers. -BARNABY. UNION V. CABLTON C.C.-At the call of time on the first day of this match, the Carl tons had up 38 runs in their first innings, and the Unions 103 for seven wickets, and Shields being absent, they failed to in crease that total. Silvester's bowling, though he only secured two wiekets, was remarkably good. He bowled 137 balls (9 maiden overs) for only 32 runs-a regular show-like performance. Alphen scattered three more of them for a fair average. Seven Carl tons fell victims to Power's curly-tails, which only cost him 41 runs; and had the Unions responded to the opportunities offered them, he would have fared better still. Voller bowled with a nice work from the off, and averaged three wickets for 9 runs, but his pitch despite the capital result, was not good enough for a wicket like Toowong. Study pitch first, my boy, and when you get them on the spot, or thereabouts, put on as much break...

A Plummy Plaint. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 14 April 1883

A Plummy Plaint. There was a soft sawiieynew chum Out here to teach pupils did come. One day at the school , . He played the tomfool, So the boys christened him " Dickey Plum." Plum Bihce has gone off teaching- tack, Nor likely is he to get back. To tell the plain truth. This soft Plummy youth, » After lasting a time, got the "sack." Wheu Dickey's star thus began dimming His ways he forthwith commenced trimming. This lad of gay kidney Went southwards to Sydney, And joined a school where they taught swimming. But now he is back here, alas! His old pupils cannot him pass . But he interferes, And calls them his " Deers," While they, in return, call him M Ass!" At present he sells baking powdsr, Yet his cheek's a jolly Bight louder. A cowardly blade, he . Insults a young lady; With bullying notes thinks he cowed her. Now a word to this Plum may be fashing There's a brother who's on for a thrashing, To dye him Plum-bago , And give him lumbago. If he doesn't leave off pupil-*' mashing/' E...

Why we "Disperse" the Blacks. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 14 April 1883

Why we w Disperse59 the Blacks. NOEMANTON lias certainly developed a curiosity in w eekly literature-no less than .; the Normanton Herald, ton by a lightning-brained genius named Booth. This sucking -Solomon is a new-chum bush man-that is to say; his experience of. the back blocks is brand new- Had hie lived on the Norman ton years ago, when I was up there* he would probably have gone under, as many a better man than ever he will be has done. If he had survived the times I have survived ; if he had passed through the experi ences I have passed through with whites and blacfcs, when Lynch law was the only thing known, when " joey " cheques were as plentiful as stolen horses or murdered chinamen, when the crime of crimes was that known as " rounding on a mate," like that miserable Hungerford did with Clarke-had Booth been through this, then I should recognise his ability to give a valuable opinion on the subject. But he comes, a trembling new chum, into the Normanton, loses a few artic...
