The Mashing Policeman. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 5 September 1885

The Mashing Policeman. I now would raise my readers' pity, By mournful tale I borrow, - About a Bobby in " the city Of sin, and sweat, and sorrow." He was-—and knew it far too well !-— A gallant, handsome fellow, Beloved by ev'ry dame and belle, From darkest-liaired to yellow. He mashed the girls upon the street, { Had learned to neatly doff his Gay helmet, and his daily beat Was near the Postal Office. His tender heart was often quivery, When beauty's eyes, it, pinned, oh As, wanting letters on delivery, Belles sought that office window. Then, answering^ ro)love*s swift fetters^ He'd stalk, all woriship-laden :<r "Say, clerk, have you got any letters, For thiis " (What naiaej young lady, did you say P Miss Ad&ine^ FitZrBlosspjn ?) - Now, then, you clerk, look isharp this way. V.(It 's ine* Miss, as can b&Bs 'era!) " Then, as the damsel murmured thanks, And left, tws bo^by spark Would cut all sorts of masher pranks, And whisper to the clerk '' A fine girl ...

A Taroom Turmoil. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 5 September 1885

A Taroom Turmoil Taroom enjoys a public reserve, whicli has been greatly encroached upon by designing residents of that town. These enoroaehments may be said tolhave caused, locally, a Taroom-endous turmoil. Portions of the reserve were "jumped" and fenced in by various people. Amongst these enoroaehments,is one perpetrated by the Taroom police, who have fenced in a slice of the reserve, as pasturage for the police horses. The Under' Secretary for Public Lands, recently wrote to the Taroom Divisional Board, "by order," to the effect that it was the Board's duty to remove all fences and other obstruc tions ^rom the Taroom reserve^ and special mention was made of the police encroachment. Accordingly, the Divisional Board instruoted its Clerk to remove the illegal obstructions, and the Clerk faithfully endeavored to carry, put, his orders. When he meddled with the police fence, however, the police had him up before the Police Court. 'The unfortunate Clerk was fined £1, with cos% the Po...

North of Us. Rockhampton. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 5 September 1885

North of Us. {Continued.) . Impudence: After dignity, naturally comes impu dence, and Bockhampton has her fair share of cheek, although most of it is concentrated in the very small compass of one little man. He is an alderman, bless yon, and worked himself up to that position by the moBt consummate impudence. There he is now, and intends jbo remain ior eyermore—a thorn in the side of dignity, and a torment to i the rest of the councillors, but a never-failing source of amusement to \the larri kins. For, unfortunately, this ..thriving town,contains several larrikins, of which the chief is the subject of our sketch, impudence rides a bicycle, and, on onp occa sion, he ran over an unfortunate pedestrian, broke the poor fellow's leg, and carved his off-ear off; but, as the piece of what had once been a man gathered itself together to remonstrate, it was. so overpowered by the tirade of abuse from Impudence, and so terrified by the threats of the utmost rigour iof the law being putin for...

Athletics. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 5 September 1885

Athletics. Another match has come off in Melbourne between Miller and Donald Dinnie. Miller won two falls out of three the last time, the house being crowded ; and Dinnie won two falls out of three this time, the house being packed." It has not yet transpired whose turn it is next time, when the house will be chock full. But the tickets are a guinea andhalf-a-guinea, and it is highly interesting. It will soon be time to see about the preparations for the banquet to be given them by the Mayor, when he shall have him who was less frequently reposing on " two shoulders and one hip/' on his right hand, and the t'other on his left.

The Gloves. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 5 September 1885

The Gloves; ' A noted pugilist named Ward, more commonly known as " Possum," called upon me the other day. I was under the impression that "Possum" was safely bestowed' in Townsville gaol, but such is not the case. About a year ago, " Possum" and a man named Morley had a prize-fight up at Charters Towers. " Possum" was recently hanging around Townsville, probably with a " spieling" prospect in view, for the period of the late races there. Sud denly, an information was laid against "Possum" that he was about to engage in a second prize-fight with Morley,at Charters Towers. "Possum" was arrested at Townsville and taken to Charters Towers. Here he found Morley also in custody. Morley, how ever, was released, upon his making an affidavit to the effect that he was not going to, fight. " Possum" made & similar affidavit, but the Bench required him to find sureties that he would keep the peace for six months. These not being immediately forth coming to the satisfaction of the Bench...

The Russian Bear Backing Out. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 5 September 1885

The Russian Bear Backing Out., The change of British Government — the sub stitution of the stalwart Salisbury for the vacillating theorist, Gladstone — is acting like a dose of well-needed medicine upon the military clique at St. Petersburg, which rules the. Czar of -Russia. While Gladstone -Was all " brag and bolt," Russia was all " bluster and bag," and; indeed, seemed likely, to bag all that she jhad set her heart on. Gladstone's gr^pd show of warlike preparations, his keeping troops at Cyprus, so as to be handier than if at home, and all his froth, did mot deceive the, Russian. military clique which bosses the Czar. These Busman wire-pullers sized up Gladstone .as atalking" man, and looked at his warlike.pre parations with impudent curiosity, while they went serenely: on aft^r their .own loot. Lord Salisbury doesn't talk half so much as Glad sCone. Since bis accession to power, there have been lewr whiapersgsff way. T-he atmosphere se|m^^bave become temporarily relealed from ele...
