Aquatics. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 30 June 1883

Aquatics. Owing to the short evenings during winter, very little rowing s . is done in Brisbane, in fact for the last three months it has ! been a dead letter. Seeing now there are three local clubs well supplied with boatB, Sec., surely they should bestir themselves, and arrange for a Joint Clubs' Regatta, to be held some Satur day afternoon in one of the town reaches. This will be th^ means of attracting members, to the sheds for practise, .also serve to show the best men in each club, and give some idea of the quality of new members; it is a mistake for the club com-: mittees to leave the selection of crews to within a month or so of the Annual Regatta, as they then rush men into training without any idea as to their fitness for work, or capability of: rowing together, in fact not bringing two crews together who will afford the public any excitement. Witness last Annual Regatta, most of the races simply a fares, and thoroughly disgusting to any person who takes a genuine interest...

Cricket. "Jovial, jecund, jolly bowlers, As if they were the world's controllers." —BARNABY. Our old friend, Sam Hamilton, has determined on preparing   a first-class wicket at the Royal Hotel, Brighton, Sandgate, and is commencing work on it almost immediately. He informs us that he intends it to be second to nothing in Queensland, so doubtless a good many first-class matches-will next season be played at this popular resort.

What will Sam do with Them? [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 7 July 1883

TVjmt w^ Saitt db witli Them? » ' THE latest curiosity a Dr. Hamilton is alleged to have unearthed is a colored boy, 18 years of age, who was born of slave parents near Grenada, on the Mississippi river, in the state of Mississippi, U.S.' It is said that, from the shoulders downwards, his skin is just like that of an alligator-is covered thickly with black scales, and the whole is as pliable, though thick and tough, as the hide of those reptiles. (This yarn is thick and tough, but not pliable). His name is Moses Eskridge, which is a sufficiently formidable matter in itself. In the summer his scales drop off, leaving indentures in the skin, where new ones form and grow on again. Of course, this is one of those few American yarns that bear on their faces such a self-evident impress of truth that they might be written by Archibald Forbes himself.

THE well-known firm of Peate & Harcourfc introduced three years ago the Shipton Mallet Anglo-Bavarian Ale, and last year their order was for 5000 casks. It took the first prize at the Vienna Exhibition, the gold medal at Paris, the first prize at Sydney, and a first-class award at Melbourne. It is the mildest beer imported, and therefore especially adapted for hot cli mates. It is of uniform quality, is clean on the palate, has the true aroma of the finest bop, and is entirely devoid of sedi ment.
