Cricket. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 September 1885

Cricket. Beauaraba has inaugurated its cricket season with a match between two local teams—the Southbrook and the Black Plains. The former team was victorious by one innings and nine runs. The play on both aides was very fair, and caused great enjoyment both to players and spectators. Had all the cricketers donned cricket in* costume, the spectacle presented would have been more picturesque, arid t'Je introduction of a little more show into the proceedings would probably have attracted a larger attendance of ladies. The inagura tion of the cricketing season was also celebrated by holding a local ball. . > ■ :V.

Railway Porters and Officials. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 September 1885

\ - . Bailway Porters and Officials. 1 have made some enquiries with respect to the complaints made to me a couple of weeks since; in connection with the employment and salaries of railway officials. I find that it is not the custom to pay any porters, or men officials, so low a salary as 30s. per week. Everyman engaged in any such capaci ty receives 33s. a. week to start with, and, at the 1 end of three months, if he is reported well of by his station-master^ he obtains the increase of 3s. per week, making his salary up to 36s. per week. It has been explained to me that the Department finds it necessary to employ careful and responsible men in certain billets, lest inexperience or youthfulness should be the cause of railway accidents. The,, necessity of this precaution has led to the adoption of a very wholesome rule,' viz., that no person under the age of 21 -years shall fill certain positions, which involve, at times, considerable responsibility. In Order to ensure that young men...

Criciet Cliatter. By Mjd-ofp. I — : ; 1— : Thparinual meeting of the Blackali C.O. was 'lieiSlkt'Fdley'B Ship Inn, South Brisbane, on. the 1st' iiiBt. Mr. Foley, Vice-presideht occupied the chair, ; and there was a good attendance of members. The i report for the past season was read, stating that the club had played 17 matches, 14 of which were 'won and 3 lost, and the funds were in a satisfactory con dition Also. The Club owed a debt of gratitude to Mr. W. Stephens, President, for his kindness in placing his fine paddock in their hands for practice and matches during the coming season. The report deprecated the folly of selecting men to play in matches who had not shown up at practice. The best batting average of the past season was obtained by W. Fisher, who played in 24 innings, scored 333 runs, carried his bat out 7 times, his highest score being 82 not out against Couriers, and his average 19.10 per innings. Such an average as this for go many innings is very seldom reached on...

Football. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 September 1885

Football* Br Wabeigal. The entries for the Football Sports on the 3rd October have been very satisfactory up to the present, but, in order that the committee may be enabled to give more valuable prizes, it is to be hoped that the entries will be doubled by the date fixed for closing, viz., the 26th. The committee has already been promised the usual Club Cups, besides special prizes from Messrs. R Harper & Co., Trimble Bros., M. B. Gannon, G. £. Markwell, and others. The Queen's Park Football Club purposes winding up the season by a social re-union, the date and place of which will be duly notified. On Saturday last, tjie Junior Beds, accompanied by Messrs. Hayes, Nathan, and Loughnan, proceeded to Ipswich toplay their return match with the Union Club of that place. On arriving at'the Bailway Station, the visitors were accorded a hearty recep-; tion from the Unions, headed by Joe Lennon and Tim O'Garroll. An adjournment was made to Whitehouse's for lunch, when, it might be tr...

THE BRISBANE GRAMMER SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 September 1885

For a. long time past, the, administrative atffios!* phere of the Brisbane Boyfi^ Grainjmar, :Scliool has been gloomy. It islike that nncQmfprta;ble> oppres sive weather that precedes a thunderstorm, and those who have watched the Grammar ^School with interest, could not fee surprised by, any. sudden change. It is difficult to point out ,the exapt nature of the irritability of the whole situation, without being unjust to .men conscientiously trying to do their best, and the position cannot be described more aptly than by the vague generality that the adminis trative machinery seems to be all out o£ g®£r. It is like Captain Cuttle's watch, a yerygo&d article in its way, but liable to erratic results. The trustees of the Grammar School must know of this general absence of working harmony—it would,'perhaps^be ; too much to style it, positive discord, because the i general* uneasiness is, as yet, wholly of a negative character, so far as outside spectators are con cerned. ; I...

Taking Away His Business Reputation. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 September 1885

I —T- ; ■ .. •... .. Taking Away His Business Reputation, A couple of old Balonne squatters were, the other day, seen propped up against two verandah posts of the Tara's Hall Hotel in a Western town. They had been " kissing the baby," " not wisely, but too well," and the baby had mounted into their brains, and ;, heated their tempers. When Mackay rum is in, Wii is out. Arid wit came out this time. The two eh- ' thralled men glared at each other for some time, and growled incoherently at intervals. At last, by a mighty effort at articulation, one said— " Lookur 'ere, Mac. You're a (hie) shollyrogue, you are—a lurid (hie) robbersh. I 'know yer (hie), yon shumpin' duffer.

Summary Justice at Nebo. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 September 1885

■ ■ Summary Justice at Nelbo. John Thomas M'Fadgen is a d^ar little Nebo boy, aged about 11 years. Johnny ib a boss boy, and captains & number, of urchins who wage a predatory warfare on Nebo birds with tlpSsfe boyish weapons of terror, catapults. Johnny wafc playing that he was a rover bold; the other day, and he had his faithful band of shanghai-ed desperadoeswith him. He was returning homewards from la. hunting excursion, when his sporting eyes observed a, bird perched upon a fence at the residence of a Mrs. Ronald, an old Nebo identity. In fact, she is so much a part of Nebo, that she might have been ' there when Moses went up the mountain of that name "to see the land and die." John ThompsonsMfJ?adgen, however, had no historical or traditional wipughfcs in his head, although Moses must .have remained green in his memory, for when one of his pirate band remarked, " Golly, there's a bird !" Johnny added, " Holy Moses ! so there is; 'ere goes i^ja shy 1Then the deadly cata...

Athletics. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 September 1885

Athletics. John Weinecke is said to have broken an Austra lian jumping record, while up at Yeulba recently. The report is that he xnade a wager of £5 that he would cover 105 feet in 9 consecutive standing' jumps. The best record of such jumping, previous to that date, was that of Barnes, the Australian champion lo^g-jumper, who had covered 108ft. It is said that, on this occasion, Weinecke scored 109ft. If this dis tance is authentically established, 'Weinecke'? achieve ment is the present champion record in Australia, for 9 consecutive standing jumps. I -would like to hear fuller and authoritative particulars.

A Figaro Cigarette Paper. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 September 1885

A Figaro Cigarette Paper. I stood at the gates of Heaven one day, Peter, the keeper, sat gloomily by, Nodding his head in a negative way, For I sought admittance with tearful eye • He had read my passports thro' and thro*—? As genuine documents as could be— Yet,, with mienOdecisive and reasons few, He told iae Heaven was not for me. I offered him gifts of gigantic worth, Nuggete as large as cannon-balls, Pearls from the uttermost parts of earth, , . For just five minutes within the walls. I'd brought an ample supply of " trade"— Fairest fruits of both earth and sea— % But obdurate Peter, stiff and staid, Informed me Heaven was not for me. A lucky thought like a sunbeam came To brighten a heart whose hopes had set; Peter smiled at the magical name As I proffered a Figabo cigarette. And he lit it at one of the gasaliers, And chuckled and wriggled with saintly glee And " spotting" more, with a covetous leer, : He told me Heaven might be for me. I trotted them out at a< princ...

A Financial Crisis. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 September 1885

A Financial Crisis. A Rockhampfcon aristocrat -went to St. Paul's church there, the other Sunday. When the collection plate came round, he opened and inspected his parse, with the result that be found he had no change smaller than half-a-crown. Turning to his immediate neighbour, he said— " Can you change me half-a-crown, old man F " " Sorry to say I can't,*' replied Dick, not relishing the adoption of the role of a money-changer in the temple. . ^ " Well, lend me a shilling, anyway," rejoined the aristocrat. "Sorry to say, General, I haven't got a shitting," replied the imperturbable Dick. The plate-bearer waited patiently for the result. Turning to him, he, who had been styled General, said " Can you give me change for half-a-crown F " " * You'll find no change in me,'" stolidly replied the plate-bearer, quoting Shakespeare. " Ah! I thought the preacher said just now that this world was full of change P " queried the General. . ' , "Maybeso; but I've not got change for half-a rown...
