The Good Young Man who Diaried! [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 14 April 1883

The Good Young Man who Biaried! It was hia favorite fad, keeping s diary. He was such . a good young man, that even his failings leaned to r virtue's side. One day the girl, of his heart got hold of his journal- She read half a page, quite by accident, of course. It ran as follows::-"Saturday: Left office at two; Kidded Brown, Jones, and Robinson into the Imperial; got them into a pool. Brown was white, I was red; got on to him and first stroke took his life; then shot Jones down, sneaked under the cush ; Robin son had a go at me; missed. Kept on hitting them up, and took all their .lives in twenty minutes." " Smith came in; challenged him for one hundred up. The crimson broke beautifully. As he tried White chapel, and I only wanted one, got him ovet the top and stabbed him down/' When we went to press, the girl of Ijie bosom was scudding for the Roma. Street Police Station. There was a black king of Ashaatee, Whose subjects declined " greed" to ante, So lie said, " I'll be blown If...

The Domestic Demon; OR THAT GEM OF A JANE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 21 April 1883

The Domestic Demon; OH THAT GEM OF A JANE. YBS, Edvrin was married. Leaning back in bis chair, he slowly puffed the meditative weed, closed his eyes, and (excuse the paradoxical metaphor) looked the fact full in the face. Bachelorhood for him was a leaf turned over, a finished chapter closed and «lasped. Smoking circles and billiards, and other incidents of single life, were but to him the recollections of an era past and gone. Borneo had settled dowij . and was a ratepayer. Regret it? Not Romeo-I mean Edwin. Looking back on that benighted buttpnleBS phase of existence miscalled single blessedness j its cheerlessness, its atmosphere of stale tobacco, its seedy sorrowful mornings, and its sourrfaced landladies, Edwin stretched out his feet in the slippers Angelina had worked for him, and iiath a complacent yawn blessed his stars in general, and the aforesaid Angelina in particular; Angelina was his wife-" Mrs. Edwin Wedjoy, Pineapple Cottage, Toowong/* to quote her card.

Ten Years' Penal Servitude. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 21 April 1883

Ten Years' Penal Servitude. DOES His Honor Judge Noel realise the responsi bility of his position? Has he any sort of just appreciation of the power that is vested in him to cut slices out of a fellow-man's life ? Whin his mouth frames a sentence at the expense of the movement of a few muscles, does he weigh mentally what that sentence really means ? ' Or does he consign men to long terms of immurement and disgrace, with only the anxiety to get over the work in hand as quickly as possible? ' I reverence justice. I bow before . the judicial altars set up by my cou^i.4!]^^^ like to see a sort of ev^-h^e^ess:^^ and its punishment. I cannot bow blindly, befor.e a.

"A Thrill of Horror" [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 21 April 1883

" A Thrill of Horror " Has doubtless passed through the Normanton dis trict, upon the receipt of the intelligence that the dead body of Mr. Crawford, late manager of Rock lands station, has been found-killed by the blacks. Here is another chance for the Benevolent Booth to wade in in the columns of the Normanton Herald, and anathematise the. debated and marauding nigger. What I want to know, at this suitable season for reflection, is about the " thrill of horror " that must have passed through that enlightened, but per secuted community, when Mr. Jones recently returned from a nigger-raid, bringing the satisfactory tidings that the mob had been too thoroughly dispersed to trouble Normantou again this season!" " Too thoroughly dispersed!" were they? Why, here is the first-fruit of that nigger-potting expedition. We are expected to blubber when one majiof our own tribe is killed by the blanks, whom we '* too thorougly dispersed." My sympathy is ready for the friends and relatives of p...

A Peep at the Shows. "You were not at the play to-night, Don Carlos. How happened it?"—The Spanish Student [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 21 April 1883

A Peep at the Shows. "You were not ait the play to-night, Don Carlos. How ; ' happened it ?"-Tlw Spanish Student WHO said tliat Signor Majeroni, business manager of Polks, was a " eingisfc." If I did, I take it all back. I assert now, on the authority of my old chum, little Joseph Brown, advance agent of the Company, that Majeroni is " no singer." He was, I remember, a tragedian of the first water, but on dit that he has even lost-his tragedy voice, let alone his warbling machinery --if he ever had any. By-the-way, I ought to apologise to the reader for not introducing him to Joe Brown, last week. Joe is an old-young in years, mind Melbourne pressmen, a lights-very light-Comedian, and a full-blown author. I haven't read his play, but I've read about it, and I notice that the other pressmen were jealous of his fame*. He used to be the life and soul of Melbourne press coteries of yore in Oliver's and Gunslcr's cafes. " But gone are the days," etc. The Polks have polkad right into publ...
