AN EASTERN FRUIT. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1901

AN EASTERN FRUIT, Mrs. J. Hendry, Corella.) Pomegranates.-This delicious fruit, which receives but little attention in Queensland, al though it thrives well, is a distinct ornament to any garden, and yields abundantly. It was cultivated in the eastern countries, on the borders of the Red Sea, and held in great es teem, before the peach, the nectarine, oir the apricot had been brought from Persia to the more western countries. The Children of Israel murmured for the fruits of Egypt-" It is, they exclaimed, in the wilderness, no place of seed, of figs, or of pomegranates." Moses described the promised land as a " land of wheat, vines, fig-trees, and pomegranates-a land of olive-oil, and honey." Solomon sings of "an orchard of pomegranates with pleasant fruits." The tree possesses considerable his torical interest. It is probable that as it dif fers from stone fruits, it travelled! from the West to the East. Pliny says it is a native of Carthage, as its name (Pumica Granatum) imports; ...

CANARIES. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1901

CANARIES. Treatment of Canaries.-This pet bird, which has been so long acclimatised in this country, and where his sweet song may be heard from almost every parlour, is a native of the Canary Islands, from which it obvi ously derives its name. There are several varieties in colour, owing to the changes of climate, domestication, and breeding it has undergone, but the London birl-fanciers acknowledge but two kinds, the 44 Jonquil" and the " Mealy," or, the plain and the variegated. The male should be a dark gray, or grayish brown (the original colour of the bird), a green or very regularly pencilled. The usual time for pairing canaries for breeding is in April. Great care should be taken in selecting birds for this purpose. At tentive males are difficult to1 be obtained, and good females as rarely to be met with. As soon as the brood is hatched, which occupies a period of thirteen days, the male commences his labours, which consist in sup plying them with food for another thirteen da...

MINING The Minerals and Precious Stones of Queensland—Continued. CROYDON GOLDFIELD—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1901

The Minerals and Precious Stones of Queensland—Continued. BY WM. LEES. CROYDON GOLDFIELD—Continued. The Carron is about 3 ½ miles N.N.E. of the Golden Valley. The reefs here, like those at Tabletop and the Valley, are situated in the feldsites, but there is one curious fact that the gold from there is of a much poorer quality than that from the other reefs in the feldsite. While gold from the Golden Valley reefs averages about £3 10s. per ounce, that from the Carron averages from £2 8s. to £2 10s. per ounce, with one exception—the Jumbo Reef—the gold from which is worth £3 per ounce. The chief reefs are Gilded Rose, which dips flatly to the south ; the Jumbo, half-a-mile S.W. of the Gilded Rose and Sarnia Gem. Mulligan's Camp is about 5 miles S.S.W. of Tabletop, on Mul- ligan's Creek, a tributary of the Carron River. The reefs here are the McArthur, a 3-foot reef running N. and S. and dipping east about 33 degrees; the Amazon and Black Eagle—but little mining is now being done here;...

The Etheridge and Gilbert Goldfield. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1901

The Etheridge and Gilbert Goldfield. The Etheridge and Gilbert Goldfield lies between the Einasleigh and the Gilbert rivers, between the Croydon Goldfield and the Walsh and Tinaroo mining district, and has an area upwards of 9,000 square miles. Discovered early in 1873, it has seen many vicissitudes, but throughout the whole of the intervening time it has always shown good crushing returns from the 1,000 reefs that lie in this immense territory. Wasteful extravagance at the time of the great Etheridge boom in 1886-8 did much to discount the value of the field and un- doubtedly retarded its progress, but with the advent of better communi- cation the great bodies of ore awaiting more economical treatment will be operated upon, and the field will, as it deserves, stand well in the front line of the gold-producing districts of the world.     The greater part of this extensive field is a coarse-grained granite, showing crystals of orthoclase felspar and flakes o...

Campbell. LMOST sixty years ago, on May 4th, 1842, there passed down the Brisbane River, at early morning, with the ebb tide, a small whaleboat, proceeding on what might well be termed a decidedly perilous voyage. The boat was heavily laden, and their journey was to be along a coast, already known as the haunt of cannibal natives northward some 150 miles to Hervey Bay, the conviction being that some large stream would surely be found running into it from the interior. Two years before, the rich lands of the Darling Downs-opened by Cunningham in 1827-had commenced to be settled, ...

GALLIOPE STATION. GLADSTONE Calliope Station, Port Curtis. MR. JAS. THOMSON, Manager. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1901

Caliippe Station, Port Curtis. MR. J AS. THOMSON, Manager. BY " GRAPHITE.'' Thirty miles we travelled westward, over smooth level roads for the first half, past small homesteads nestling among trees, road-side hosteleries, where the inevitable team was at the door; past the camps of railway construc tion men, and a solitary church on a sharp ridge near by where a stony creek rippled across the roadway and lost itself in a maze of sun-glinted trees. The last half, after we had passed Stowe Station, with its giant date palm and neat out-houses, and the clump of board marking the road to the Boyne Crossing, was much more undulating and picturesque. Out to the N.W. oo a spur beyond Stowe you looked over the Calliope River for 40 miles to the far away Callide and Dawes Ranges, and the country, auriferous metalliferous and carbonifer ous, wherein the great coal measures of the Callide lie hid, and where further south the mines of Maxwelton and Mount Rainbow have annually given gold in fai...

CARE OF KID GLOVES. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1901

CARE OF KID GLOVES. An unwise economy is the purchase of cheap gloves. They are dear at any price, for they are usually ruined in one wearing, and some times in one putting on. When buying a pair of gloves, the seams should be examined care fully. If the stitching has broken through anywhere, or if, when the seams are stretched, the surface of the glove strains away from the stitching, showing a white spot, the gloves are worthless. A good glove will be elastic and " springy," and to insure good service, the kid should stretch easily to the shape of the hand. Care in putting on gloves for the first tim*? is important in making them wear well. Hie hands should be cool and dry; a little talcum powder may be used if the hands are naturally moist. The fingers should be worked on first, by pressure upon the outside and inside of the finger,-not the sides, where the thinnest part of the kid is used,--and carefully smoothed before the thumb is inserted. Then the thumb should be put in with...

THE CASE OF TOMMY TUCKER. TOMMY'S OWN LOVE STORY [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1901

THE CASE OF TOMMY TUCKER. TOMMY'S OWN LOVE STORY There came a time when Tommy Tucker's intimate friends shook their heads when he was out of hearing, and remarked that either he had been losing money by speculation, or was going the way of other men who at a cer tain age became blase and lost interest in their world. Certainly, it was an unheard-of thing for Tucker to mope in the presence of women and grow bored with the conversation of the men at his club; and even Harry Tempster, who had been one of his loyal friends since a certain night at the Charity Ball, more than two years before, confided to his wife that he feared that something was preying upion Tommy's mind. Only Edwards, Tucker's man, suspected the truth; and Edwards would not have breathed it for a kingdom. It was Edwards who had noticed that the pictures of the women on Tucker's dressing-table had been thrown aside until only one remained, and that in a golden frame. It was Edwards who knew about the girl who had arri...

How to Kill Warts on Animals. J. Honeman, Diamentina. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1901

How to Kill Warts on Animals. J. Hone man, Diamentina. A radical cure can only be effected by de stroying their source of supply. Their ten dency to recur is not owing, as popularly sup posed, to infection from the blood running over the adjacent skin, but from the fart that any remedy which only cuts the blood-vessel of supply does not prevent it frjna sending cut fresh branches to replace the old grcwtJi at or about the former situation. Th;s is the main objection to the ligature, because it is commonly tied too tight, and severs instead of withers the wart. If it is decided to adopt that plan, a ligature should be chosen of rather stouter material than at first appears necessary, and it is better to tighten it in a few days than to put it on too tight at first. From fine twine to fillis the choice may be said to lie, but exceptionally large ones may need tarred cord or some of that thickness. All one has to do is to see that the whole of the growth is in cluded in it, and not be ...
