The Photographer and the Barmaid. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 4 July 1885

The Photographer and the Barmaid.. ^ Now, Nor'-by-West, let's male a trac^, Until we reach—well, (lay, *' far back j" Where bullocks d?^y the only jtraf^p.-—• Here find an arti&t photogra|)hid. It is a township near the Darr made. And which at presents boasts one barmaid, "Who has show hands, show feetand show toes, v, ' . And thought she'd like to have some photos. This bright idea impelled her so, She .sought the artist's studio; And sat there quiet as a lamb. The while the artist worked the " cam." (I mean the " camera " by that Abbreviation, which, came pat.) . The sun upon the lens just glinted, And her presentment there was printed. But when the " futto^s " came to her, To pay for them, she did demur j !" They're not quite gay," was her decision, " For one in my proud, high position." In vain^the artist asked for payment, She wouldn't listen to defrayment, As he was botiind along the track, He took the dozen photos, back. The photo, artist did aver ? That he'd be quick...

THE PAPER KNIFE. Poems, [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 4 July 1885

THE PAPER KNIFE. Poems, By Mary Hannay Foott, Toowoomba. Perhaps the highest compliment I can pay to the author of the modest little volume recently published by Gordon & Gotch, under the title of "Where the   Pelican Builds, and other Poems," is that there is not one of the twenty-eight poems which the book contains that does not merit publication. It is very seldom that this can be said of the collections of miscellaneous poems issued even by the greater bards. I have no doubt that a writer of Mrs. M. H. Foott's power and facility has many other lyrics in her desk, or in circulation among her friends, and it is only my reliance upon the judiciousness she has exercised in her selection that prevents me from complaining that the volume is not larger. As it is, Mrs. Foott has published enough to show that she possesses genuine lyric force and fervour, and even permits us glimpses now and then of a larger reflec- tive power, which, if brought into full exercise in...

PERSONALS [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 4 July 1885

"I "hope I don't intrude." There is not a theme that's dry To a keen, discerning mind ; Yet, in these few columns, I Only deal with humankind. Taking mankind as a whole, As creation's greater part; Tell of things that sear the soul, , Tell of things that move the heart Tell of penury that's there, Tell of good deeds done by stealth Tell of hope and of despair; Tell of sickness and of health. Varied human pictures give, Diorama passing by;   Tell how men and women live; Show how men and women die. On Life's changes have my say. Be they foes or be they pals; Sombre scrap-bits, mixed with gay,   Patchwork up my Personals. Geobge Demetbius is a mail contractor at Fort Douglas, and the other day rescued four blackfellows who were clinging to a water-logged oanoe. He took them to Fort Douglas first, as he had the mails on board, and then back to the mouth of the Daintree river, where he landed them, having been long enough in their company to be able to identify ...

The Traffic Employees. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 11 July 1885

The Traffic Employees. Verily, it seems no enviable position to be an em ployee of the Traffic Department of the Southern and Western Railway. I have frequently given publicity tbthe grievances under which the Traffic employees jjroan, ^&t,%jeektby week, fresh complaints reach me of the treatment to which those iMen are subjected. Let us take a view of the question all round. A man 4s employed, in the first instances say as porter in'the Department at a salary of from 30s. to 33s. per week, for which he has to work fropi sjx in the morning to six at nigbt—receiving say, " wages at the rate of 6d. per hour.' Do the working men of the colony see what this means ? The Government sets the example of pulling dov^n wages in the colony almost to the bare means of substance point. Truly, when our benevolent Government sets such a good example, it is not to be wondered at if private individuals follow it, and, propably, in a few years, the working man of the colony will not have a pe...
