A SHORT TALK ON BEING TIRED. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 26 August 1897
A SHORT TALK ON BEING TIRED. I Are yous workingman, or a work- ing man or a working woman 1 I don't ¡mean one who is hy classification, or by having been born on the sinister side of certain lines of social clea* age, but solely because you daily do some .ort of real,'honest, sud useful work? Yes t l shake your hand. 1 hope you manage to live by it without overdoing, and that (being «till hearty and healthy) you sonic ti mes find yourself tired, dog-tin d, and hungry as a wolf, with plenty of good feed for supper. Then bey ! for bed and a genuine Bleep of eight hours ; to jump from lied in the morning, both fret cn the Hoot at once. That's the tight kind of "tired" and the heaven-descended brand of rest. It is a blessing in itself, and bears others in its train. But the variety of fatigue so many people are all the time writing Ul atiotit is different. Listen to this one, for instance: "In Septcmler, 1893,' he ssyp, "I was overcome by a fie.inj of langour. I was easily tired uni com...

From Our Point of View. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 26 August 1897
From Our Point of View. """"_. New South Wales has amended the quarantine BEGUXATIONS. h¿m¡Kly ^ ag [0 exclude such , large runs as Rosebrook, Cork, Llaurheidol and Woodstock, which aro free from ticks, and new restrictions are imposed upon the conveyance of cattle to the southward by sea. These new regu- lations will have ' practically no effect upon the north, as even under the old regulations there was no possibility of I our live «tock reaching the south. The ! only possible way in which northern stock can reach th« southern markets is as chilled meat and with the overlanding restrictions and free ports for dead meat there should be a good demand for such meat in Sydney and Melbourne. Mean- while, pastoralists are wholly dependent upon northern demands for outlet« for their surplus. stock, and the claim for a I reduction of rents is so firmly based on j equity that nothing can upset it. The runs have depreciated in value to an enormous extent owing to causes over which the lesse...

Mr Robertson will stay in Cairns for a week on his return journey from the North, when this and various other matters «Ul receive his attention.
More Labor Logic. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 26 August 1897
Mei« Labor Logic. " When yon have a weak eise, and are unable to answer your opponent, abuse him," is tho standing rule of the labor alleged newspapers in Australia. People smile when they read the reply of our Wednesday evening contemporary to our leading article in last issue. That reply is practically: "We cannot upset your arguments even if we had the brains to fouow them, so the only thing to be done is to abuse the paper and its staff, from the editor down to the printer's devil." This is only another specimen of " Labor logic ", but for a newspaper which starts out with the avowed intention of regenerating thc universe in one act, the attitude assumed in the last issue is one which forcibly calls to mind how strong is the link between thc sublime and the ridiculous.

Torch Minstrel Entertainment. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 26 August 1897
Torch Minstrel Entertain- ment. A grand Minstrel Entertainment was given by the officers and men of H.M.S. Torch in the Divisional Hall yesterday evening, in aid of the Cairns District Hospital. The hall was comfortably filled, and the gross takings amounted to about ¿20. This is the first en- tertainment of the kind ever given by the Torch people, and when this fact is taken into consideration, it may safely be said, that with a few rehearsels, the Torch Ministréis would be able to put many professional troupes in the j shade. The first part consisted of the usual minstrel business, Mr. Glibbery actingras in- terlocutor. Thc troupe were evidently unac- quainted with the acoustics of the hall, and in consequence many good things were almost lost to the aadience. The opening chorus, "White folks all,"went with a swing. In fact all the choruses were well balanced and proved among the most enjoyable items on the programme. Mi. W. J. Sparrow sang, &lt;« Raz- ors in thc air " and...
MONDAY, August 23. (Before the Police Magistrate.) [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 26 August 1897
MOSE AY, Auguit 23. (Before UM Police Magistrate.) Johnson,, a larrikin-looking native of Mackay, and at present a compositor on the staff of the ''Post," appeared charged with disorderly conduct ina publie place. Mr Le Vaux appeared for each of the miserable-looking delinquents, who had spent the previous afternoon and night in the lock-up. Accused pleaded guilty. It appears that these two offenders, the elder of whom was before the Court only a few weeks previously, were found by the police on Sunday afternoon about 4 o'clock, bathing on the beach immedia- tely in front of the Sub-Inspector's resi- dence. Both offenders were under the in- fluenae of drink, but luckily they had forgotten to direst themselves of trousers and thus escaped more serious trouble. They were escorted to tba lock-up by the'ears, and afforded endless fun for a .core or two of little boys and giris who followed up the rear, laughing and jeer- ing, as tbs swimmers, dripping wet and shivering, tracked over the...
