HE GOT LEFT. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 22 February 1884

HE C40T LEFT. HE was courting a Boston bello, one of the Beacon Hill aristocracy. He wished to impress upon her aesthetic, susceptible mind that he was some way up in the classics, and that he was a young gentle- man of culture. ' ' Said he - " My stellar soul, the pleaides of my solar centre, you are magniticentas the constellation Hercules, as charming as Ursa Major, as regular in outline as Aquilla, and as transcen- dently stately as the great Southern Cross, with the beautiful proportions of the Isocelas Triangle." Said she-{' Young man you had best square the circle, box the compass, and make a bee-line for the milky way and the planetary Orion. When you were introduced to me, I iuferrcd that you wei*e a man ; but I huve diagnosed your mental and physical proportions, and you turn out to be an astronomical idiot \v th false pretensions to oocult geometry, concerning which you know as little as a Western cow-boy does about ball etiquette. There is the door, sir; get?" And he got...

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 22 February 1884

To THE Ei>iToit. DEAR SIR,-I wish to make a sugges- tion to whoever it may concern al>out a matter which is undoubtedly an import- ant one. I have been rather a close observer of thc method of fishing adop- ted by Chinese and have very often noticed a circumstance which might easily be altered beneficially. In nearly every other civilised place the nets of fishermen are made to a certain stand- ard so as to allow of only fish of proper size being caught, and any infringement on this law is punishable with a heavy fine. Anyone could see what a vast amount of good such a law would do in Palmerston if he paid a visit to any of the Chinese fishing grounds when in full swing. All sizes are caught in the nets they use, from a couple of inches to the same number of feet, and while they dry the larger ones for sale to others, the small ones serve as food for them- selves. It is, I think, a scandalous shame to allow this kind of thing to go on before our very eyes, and I hope that the ...

THINGS AND OTHERS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 22 February 1884

THINGS AND OTHERS. THE heavy rains this week have caused a rise in most of thc creeks and rivers up country, and in consequence thc mail has not yet arrived nt Southport. During the week over nine inches have fallen in Palmerston and at Fannie Pay. OÜE up-country special correspondent wired down to us on Wednesday last that thc Spring Hill had cleaned up a fortnight's crushing of 140 tons stone, which yielded 228oz.¡gold. Also that M'Intyrc has 40 tons stone now awaiting crushing at thc Extended Union. IT would appear from a notification issued from thc Postal Department, that Mr. A. D. Gore's suggestion BE thc closing of the mails at Palmerston for the upcountry districts has met with ready consideration by Mr. Little. The time for closing mails for Southport is now 2.30 p.m. on the usual days, instead of 1 p.m. as hitherto. In some respects this will be a very great boon to many interested parties in Palmerston, aud will certainly inconvenience no one, except, perhaps, by delaying...

GENERAL MISCELLANY. BARNUM'S WHITE ELEPHANT. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 22 February 1884

GENERAL MISCELLANY. BARNUM'S WHITE ELEPHANT. ! The New York TRIBUNE publishes the following with reference to the white elephant recently acquired for Mr. Barnum : Mr. Barnum and his partners have been trying for years to get a sacred white elephant. Their agent, Mr. Gay- lord, visited thc Court of Siam for, that purpose last spring, obtained an audi- ence with the King, and stated his errand. The King, with an air of astonishment at the request, referred Mr. Gaylord to his aged uncles, who, he said, were his advisers. An interview was obtained with one of the uncles, and Mr. Gayo nt toíd him that 100,010 lol. or more would be given for the elephant, or half that sum for its use for exhi- bition purposes for two years. Thc Siamese Prince indignantly replied : "Sir, you know that the Siamese worship the white elephant ; that the King demands for them the same care ami respect that is accorded to his Majesty or any member of the royal family ; that we lielieye ,the spirit of deities a...
