A Singular Question. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 September 1885

i A Singular Question. | ;i- A clergyman, travelling in the far i^prth. West,? met two sundowners and camped, sls usiial, at the! waterhole with them for a feed. He improved the! .shining hour thus thrown in his way, by .giving theur a hpmily ,on the whole duty of man, bursting out# towards the close of his 'discourse, into rapturous; eloquence on the joys of heaven. Having thus patched up the sandals of their pilgrimages, he re! , mounted his horse and started on his own journey along. Before doing so, however, he said— ! Vi&nd now, ,my Christian friends, can you direct me to Blethering Downs station i ? ** Seems to me a rather singular question for you , to put," replied one of the sundowners. ! How's that?" askedthe parsoh. | " Well, it eeems sort of singular to me that you should know, so much about Heaven andithe way tci it, which is millions of miles away, while you don't seem to know the road to. Blathering Downs, which! is not three miles to the right of the sun from...

The Taroom Wire Fencing Cases. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 September 1885

The Taroom Wire Fencing Oases. Correspondents at Taroom feel hurt that an im pression should have got abroad down in Brisbane, evidently to the effect that W.J, Kable, Br. Pointon, &c., who were fined for having in their possession wire for which they could not account, had. been accused of a serious offence; whereas it was nothing of the kind. Such Taroom correspondents will pro bably have been satisfied, , when last week's Figabo reached them, with fuller comments. Nevertheless, the following further explanation will do no harm. The wire fencing was removed from a portion of the Taroom reserve, illegally jumped by the police. It was taken by the secretary of the Divisional Board, according to instructions issued by that Board, and it awaited further disposal by the Board. The secretary, in removing it, found it too weighty to carry,-and left a portion on Kable's premises. The Bench ruled that the Divisional Board (which acted under instructions received from the Minister f...

The Price of Eggs. A. Western bushman, in town for a spree, has been initiated into the mysteries of egg-flip, to which he has taken a great liking. The other day, he was seen to enter a green-grocer's shop in order to purchase some inore of his favorite hen-fruit. And this is how he got. on, and what he made of the situation " An' how much do yez charge for eggs, ma'am?" " Two shillings a dozen, sir." " Whirra! That's too much entoirely, ma'am.

Social Reform. A Lady's Reverie. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 September 1885

Social Reform. •i||£yt. ■ ... . A Lady's Reverie. A lady correspondent sends the subjoined The following is not a deep, penetrative analysis, or a logical speculation oil social reform. It is a wandering reverie in which the mind drifts, almost unthinkingly, upon. $be outer surface of things, too aimless to dip down into the pool of deeper reflec tion. I send it along, more for what it may suggest to an active thinker, than for what it actually takes into consideration. Brisbane is a most wicked little town, some people say. If its people are all ruined by this drought, or if the cholera comes and carries off half of them, it will only be a righteous judgment on their "mani fold sins and wickednesses." At least, so would-be   moralists say. Fortunately for Brisbane, its prophets of evil are, for the most part, a home-keeping set of people, and they really compare the wickedness of   the city, not with the moral condition of any other   dull lit...

Social Reform. A Lady's Reverie. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 26 September 1885

Social Reform. A Ziady's Reverie* A lady correspondent continues her last week's reverie thus There are noti I suppose, any abjectly poor people in Brisbane, yet the little ones could scarcely fare worse than thieydo at present, if their parents were penniless. Even in the east end of London, I never saw children more sadly neglected than they are in this flourishing little town. They are turned out of doors like goats and poultry, and left entirely to their own devices. Some of them, I imagine, ought 4k> go to school, but they do not. People who are deluded enough to think that the present system of education is satisfactory, had better" take a walk through some-suburban district during school hours, and see for themselves how many children are graduating in the gutters, and learning more things than are dreamt of in the philosophy of the Min ister for Public Instruction. ^It seems truly wonderful to me that none of our social reformers have taken up the children's cause.

Music. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 26 September 1885

Music. On my table two songs have just been placed for my opinion, and 1 may, at the Outset, declare that to bfe favorable. The first song is entitled "Thy JFace," by C. H. E. Marriott, the words by B. Liejoindre. Although not marked by special freshness of style, it is pleasingly melodious, and of easy compass, for either contralto or baritone voice, the lowest range being from B flat to E flat, and the words are of that deliciously vague quality prevailing in drawing-room songs, and applicable to the "dear one" of either sex. " As a companion to the above, is the humorous vocal duetTwo Cousins," for female voices,- J>y c. W. Glover, which is a capital foil to the sentiment of the previously named song, and a fitting wind-up to a small programme. Of course, my readers need1 not be told that the duet subject is the((old, old story/' in which the cousins indulge in mutual quizzing. Both the above songs have been pub lished some time, but are still deserving of being more widely kn...
