Notes Month. The Late President McKinley. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1901

tttttmtrt mrmtrttrra* The Late President McKinley. Since our last issue the American nation, and even the whole civilised world; has suf fered a loss in the death of Mr. McKinley the late President of the United States. The black cowardly hand of anarchy has been at work again, and the life of one of the best and truest men of the century has been sacrificed to the homocidal fanaticism of this vile growth of modern socialism. As a contemporary truly says :-" Surely those ill-advised, desperate incendiaries must note the effect of their ter rible handiwork. The grief and sympathy which it has created are no mere spasms, no mere sectional demonstrations; they are uni versal ; they are almost unutterable. If then those gloomy anarchial fanatics thought to en list the sympathy and interest of any portion of the world's people, excepting their own, how fearfully must they be disappointed ? Can they not see that their criminal methods brand them, simple as what they are-abandoned criminal...

Henry Stephen Dutton, 8th August, 1901. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1901

Denrg Stephen Button, Stb Bu^ust, 1901. With our number of July last we issued, as a supplement, a portrait, together with, a short resume of the life of one of the most notable civil servants, who have in days past served this State. Since that issue, Death, the Great Reaper, has been at work, and! the name of Henry Stephen Dutto-n, late Under Secretary of the Chief Secretary's Department, has been added to the long list of those who, in duty's cause, gave up their lives. Beloved as Mr. Dutton was by all who knew him, he was held in special regard by one with whom he was in daily converse, Mr. J. Brunton Stephens, and it is to this fact that we are indebted for the subjoined beautiful sonnet: - Not those of our best manhood nobly dead, Who flung themselves in willing sacrifice On altar flames that redden still the skies Of shuddering Africa; whose blood was shed To succour kindred and exalt the head Of floute i England in all nations' eyes; Whose fame shall eong and tale immortaliz...

LONK SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1901

LONK SHEEP. The Lonk is one of the varieties of sheep that have existed from time immemorial in all the mountainous regions of Asia and Europe, and is confined almost entirely to the higher ranges of the Cumberland, Westmoreland, and Yorkshire hills in England. The Rocky Mountain sheep is the American representative of the same group. All of them have horns on the male; those of the female are less de veloped in nature. The natural Lonk is of little commercial importance, but is annually shown at the Royal Society's Shows, more as a curiosity than anything else. As selection and improved breeding came into play the horns were bred off and the wool became less hairy, till the modern breed became fixed in type. A Venerable "Mutton.'-According to a correspondent of a local contemporary circu lating in Berkshire, Mr. R. Bennett, of Chad dleworth, possesses a ewe which has had 21 lambs, and is 21 years old. "For years she has been toothless, her food being cut up by the kindly shepKerd, ...

Our Incomparable Soil and Climate. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1901

Our Incomparable Soil and Climate In making a comparison ot the sou ana climate of Queensland, even in a most cur sory manner, with those of other countries, the first thing that strikes the observer is the ir regularity, and uncertainty of our seasons. Our great liability to severe periodical droughts and destructive floods places our island con tinent in a most unique position in making any comparison. Looking around us we can discover nothing analogous, as far as the rota tion of the seasons is concerned in any of the countries of the new world, nor in the greater part of the old. We can look over the map of Europe and of Africa without detecting condi tions similar to our own. Very frequently we hear of disastrous floods, but never of a drought similar to that we have just passed through. To find anything of an analogous character to our own we must go to Asia, where crop failures on a large scale are only too well known. But even in India, which is more par ticularly the countr...

Border Leicester Sheep. I. Scott, Roma. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1901

Border Leicester Sheep. I. Scott, Roma. One of the best of the British long-wooled breeds of sheep is the Border Leicester. It was originated by crossing the true Leicester with the Cheviot, but it has long been recog nised as a pure and well-established breed. As both the name and the Cheviot blood in dicate, its habitat is along the border line be tween England and Scotland. They combine in a large degree the hardiness of the Cheviot with the early maturity, heavy carcass and long,. lustrous wool of the Leicester. The points which indicate purity of blood are as follows: Head-long and fine, with a fair breadth between the eyes, well covered with fine white hair; open nostrils; bright and full eyes; thin ears, well covered with fine hair; strong underjaw; nose black. Symmetry equal weight of quarters; straight and broad back; shoulders broad and deep, with short springing neck; head well set on, with fine carriage ; well-sprung ribs, with straight under lines; breast wide and well ...

The Working of the Agricultural Lands Purchase Acts. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1901

The Working of the Agricultural Lands Purchase Acts. Not the least of the laws affecting agricultur ists of which Queensland should be proud is the Act known as the Repurchase Act of 1894. No other State or. colony except New Zealand has attempted to legislate in this direction, and although no properties were purchased under -the sysoem during the year. 1900, it does not follow that the system has not worked very well. Although no estates were purchased in 1900, it is understood that there are at least three estates, all in the Darling Downs district, about to be added to the list of re purchased lands. These are respectively, Goomburra, containing 13,353 acres; Gowrie, with 42,000 acres; and Devon Park, with 6,000. The average price will range much the same as the other repurchased estates, which comes out at exactly ^2 15/- per acre. Up.to the end of 1900 fourteen estates in all had been opened up for selection, containing a total area of 127,813 acres, and of this the number of ...

Recent Land Legislation. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1901

Recent Land Legislation. When Parliament opened in July last the omission from the list of foreshadowed Bills in the speech of the Lieutenant-Governo having a direct bearing on agricultural matters, was freely commented upon. The general con sensus of opinion was that some sort of re lief should be given to the pastoral tenants of the Crown, after the prolonged drought. Although the omission referred to .occurred, it is very pleasing to find that land legislation has been by no means forgotten. A Bill to amend the Agricultural Lands Purchase Acts has been before the House during the monlli. The principal amendments lie in the direction of including in future purchases, land suitable for dairying purposes. Of course it is abso lutely necessary that dairying, to be carried on profitably, must have unstinted supplies of winter feed, so that the provision in the Bill for at least one-fourth of the land taken up for dairying shall be suitable for cultivation, is a wise one. Another amend...

A Scandalous Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1901

A Scandalous Letter. " Reynolds' Newspaper" (London) prints the fallowing scandalous effusion from Queens land1, which puts this State upon as despicable a ground as could be: "I must congratulate you, on behalf of the Socialists of Queensland, for the brave and admirable fight you are waging against the bloody crime being perpetrated by an iniquit ous knd tyrannical Government on the freedom loving Boers. It is most refreshing to' us here, after the mendacious lying and hyprocrisy of the capitalistic Press, to get your paper and read your outspoken and humanitarian views on the war. The Federal elections of Queens land, which totfk place last month, proved a veritable triumph for Labour and pro-Boerism. It was the greatest victory ever achieved by Labour in Australia or, indeed, the world. The Labour party practically swept the polls. Of six Senators endorsed by the Government party, only one crept in, last but one. Dawson, the late leader of the Labour party here, who from his pla...

PASTORAL Stock and Station [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1901

Stock and Station The markets in this section show a slight easing all round, which is due so far as stock are concerned to a slight falling off in quality. Best beef is worth about 17/6 per 100 lbs., whilst sheep values show a corresponding drop on last month's quotations. The latest London cables state that the wool sales are progressing firmly, greasies showing Jd. a lb. better, while the scoured merinos and crossbreds are holding their own well. In fact the wool market has evinced that turn for the better foreshadowed in our last report, and it seems almost certain that prices will continue on the up grade. A noticeable feature is the sharp rise in taMow, best mixed being quoted at ^25 10/-. The hide market continues fairly firm. Cattle.-Prime bullocks, £*} 10/- to £7 15/-; good to £1 7/6; medium, £5 12/6 to £6 12/6; extra prime cows, £6 15/-; prime to £$ I2/6; good to £4 17/6; light and in ferior to ^3 17/6.

Rome Notes UNAWARES. A song welled up in the singer's heart Like a song in the throat of a bird, And loud he sang, and far it rang, For his heart was strangely stirred; And he sang for the very joy of song, With no thought of one who heard. Within the listener's wayward soul A heavenly patience grew, He fared on his way with a benison On the singer, who never knew How the careless song of an idle hour Has shaped a life anew. -Alice W.

?? " -K THE EXTENSION ©F THE LEASES. H Most IMPORTANT QUESTION to Queensland. i WHY ? 1. There are in Queensland four hundred and twenty-seven million, eight hundred and thirty-eight thousand and eighty acres of land (427,838,080) or eight hundred and fifty-six acres (856) for each man, woman, and child in the State. 2. Four hundred and eleven million acres of land (411,000,000) belong to the people of this country, who control it through their representatives in Parliament. THIS LAND IS NO GOOD to the people of this country unless it is occupied and bringing in RENT. 3. No one will occupy land unless he can profitably use it and make something out of it for himself and his family. 4. The pastoralists are the principal occupiers of most of the land belonging to the State, holding it under what is called a Pastoral Lease, but most of these leases expire in six or seven years from now. 5.
