Sometimes the nurse will loudly bawlj And the kid begins to cry.

Skite and Scoot. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 19 May 1883

Skite and Scoot, IT is a pity that Wienholt was christened Edward. I am informed, upon authority which I regard as thoroughly reliable, that this landocratic champion intends v*>ry shortly to cut and run home to England for a season. If this news be true, I crave that some master of the English language will come forward and supply me with a few ijncisive, and at the same time comprehensive, epithets that shall exactly fit such a sneaking, cowardly course of conduct-I can't dig the sufficient expressions out for myself. Having raised a row, having brought the landsharks into acrid antagonism with the people, he (if information be true) proposes to run away just when file real tug of war commences, and to remain perdti at a distance until the battle is over. One would have, thought that Edward Wienholt, being such a champion of landocratic assumptions and such a deadly foe to the proposal of a Lard-grant Transcontinental Railway, would have considered it to be his duty (I know mos...

Cowlishaw's Paper Again. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 19 May 1883

Cowlishaw's Paper Again. I HAVE no less than eight letters lying in my office that have been sent to me for publication after having been rejected by the Telegraph. I regret that, hot having completed arrangements for the increased facilities necessaxy for the permanent enlargement of FIGABO, I cannot find room for their insertion. One and all of these correspondents complain of the arbi trary way in which they have been snubbed by Mr Cowlishaw (I take that gentleman as personifying the Telegraph), of the way in which they had their com munications returned, and, in some cases, of how they were subjected to the annoyance of seeing insulting " Notices to Correspondents " affixed opposite their namei. In fact, as I have elsewhere said, the Tele graph no linger represents the people, but simply Mr. Cowlishaw. To take an illustrationI have just received a communication from Mr. Hill, saddler, in George street. I dare say many of my readers know him as a man who would write nothing offen...

A Peep at the Shows. "You were not at the play to-night, Don Carlos. How happened it?"—The Spanish Student THE OPERA. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 19 May 1883

A Peep at the Shows. " You were not at the play to-night, Don Carlos. How happened it ?"-The Spanish Student THE OPERA. Toll, toll, toll, For the passage of the soul Of a good comedian-" good," I mean, in art; Weep, weep, weep Over actor fall'n asleep, Who, in this last parting, took his final part. T. S. CASSELLI, who had been Emelie Melville's business manager for some three years, died on Tuesday morning. It was not an unexpected shock, because he had been in a gallop ing consumption for months. He was a clever comedian. I   believe his real name was Shapcot. From grave to gay. The Emelie Melville opera troupe opened to a densely-packed house last Saturday, in spite of a terribly wet night. The weather has not been at all propitious, and this accounts for the comparative absence of the fair sex. I must also be ungallant enough to say that had they come they couldn't have found sitting accommodation. The opera given was Genée's " The Royal Middy." It is supposed popul...

Pedestrianism. AT North Kockhampton, M. Delaney beat P. O'Reilly easily, mucli to the astonishment and disgust of the latter* s backers, in a foot-race of 200 yards for £2 a-side.
