ROCKHAMPTON POULTRY SALES. ROCKHAMPTON, January 13. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
ROCKHAMPTON POULTRY SALES. ROCKHAMPTON, January 15. &nbsp; Messrs. Broome and Elwing held their regular weekly sale of Poultry at their East-street mart on the 10th instant to a fair penning so far as numbers &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; were concerned, but good table quality was far short of requirements, the majority of the birds being hens in the fowl section. Ducks were in fair &nbsp; request, but the demand for turkeys &nbsp; was erratic. Good table fowls continue &nbsp; in good demand. The prices quoted &nbsp; below are at per pair unless otherwise &nbsp; stated — Medium prime roosters sold &nbsp; &nbsp; from 7s. down to 6s., lighter down to 5s, Exceptionally prime coloured hens sold at from 6s. 8d. down to 5s. 6d., lighter down to 4s. ; White Leghorn roosters from 6s., for very prime, to 4s for old staggy birds ; White Leghorn hens 5s. 10d. to 3s. 10d , prime table cockerels 6s. to ...

WOOL PRICES. TASMANIAN DECLINE. HOBART, January 14. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
WOOL PRICES. TASMANIAN DECLINE. HOBART, January 14. As a result of the Tasmanian wool sales, which opened, at Launceston last week and continued at Hobart on Mon- day, growers will suffer to the extent of between £400,000 and £500,000 in revenue, as prices were considerably lower than was the case last year. At the opening sales in other States prices have been lower, and Tasmania, al- though it produces wool of a superior class to anything which can be produced in other States, suffered a general de- cline in prices. As the sales proceeded yesterday the position improved slight- ly and a record price for the State for the season was reached when five bales of high class super merino wool brought 34¼d. per lb. The best price for come- backs was 18½d. and for crossbreds I8¼d., both lots being of high quality. Dur- ing the day numerous lots were with drawn by growers, who feel that by sending wool to the London sales they will reap a richer harvest.

The market continues to be bare of New South Wales oaten chaff, and for a better class sample of locally-grown oaten chaff up to 7s. 2d., was paid. A good class sample of wheaten chaff realised 6s. 4d., and a poor line went at 5s. 4d. Mixed chaff was in light supply, and for superior mixed chaff up to 6s. 10d. was obtained. An offer of 3s. 9d. was refused for lucerne hay. There were increased supplies of potatoes. Sales were made at from 17s. 6d. to 11s. 9d. There was a further decline for onions.

THE WEATHER HEAVY RAINS IN NORTH. RAILWAY TRAFFIC HELD UP. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
THE WEATHER HEAVY RAINS IN NORTH. RAILWAY TRAFFIC HELD UP. The week has been characterised by high temperatures and heavy rainfalls — the greater part of the precipitation, however, falling in the north. &nbsp; The amount of rainfall showed a striking variation accord- ing to locality, the highest being at Mossman, where over 10½ inches fell. Some interruption of the railway service was caused by the rise in the rivers, but the traffic was soon resumed. MELBOURNE, January 8.

ABORIGINAL CENSUS. INTERESTING FIGURES. The aboriginal census returns as at June 30th, 1929, have now been sum- marised and the grand total of full bloods and half-castes shows an in- crease of 432 on last year 's figure. The census was taken and the tabula- tions made by the Registrar-General, Brisbane, with the co-operation of the Chief Protector of Aboriginals, the re- turns being supplied by protectors throughout the State as well as super- intendents of missions, reserves and set tlements. Half-caste aboriginals are included in the general population estimates, but full bloods are not. The following figures, therefore, give, approximately, the total population of the State at June 30th, 1928, and 1929:— 1928. 1929.

Q.C.W.A. MOWBULLAN MOUNTAIN SHACK. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
Q.C.W.A. MOWBULLAN MOUNTAIN SHACK. In addition to the thirteen seaside huts and three seaside homes that the Queensland Country Women's Associa- lion has established, it is also anxious to provide mountain cottages to which country women, who need the air of the mountains, may go. There is a mountain cottage at Mt. Tambourine, and the Mowbullan moun- tain shack has recently been opened. Two years ago representatives of the Dalby, Square Top, Jandowae, Cooran- ga North, Bell, Irvingdale, Downfall, and Perrinuan branches formed a com- mittee to erect and furnish a holiday home on Mt. Mowbullan, in the Bunya mountains. The idea came from the Cooranga North branch, and through the untiring efforts of the committee it has been erected and furnished and was officially opened by Mrs. Farmer, presi- dent of the Southern Division, on Oc- tober 5 th. To distinguish it from the Redcliffe seaside huts it has been called the Mow- bullan mountain shack. It is attractive- ly situated on the northe...

FITZROY SHIRE. RECOVERY OF RATES. ROCKHAMPTON, January 9. There was a full attendance of mem- &nbsp; bers at yesterday's monthly meeting of the Fitzroy Shire Council. The councillors were in good spirits; they are all men of the land who had re- ceived a nice present for the New Year in the form of useful rains. Wishing the councillors a prosperous year, the &nbsp; Chairman (Cr. J. W. O'Shanesy) said that the Council was not in a favour- able position financially — the Council is within £1000 of its overdraft — but they hoped to be able to carry on and keep the roads in trafficable order for the remainder of their term. They could only hope there would be no heavy rains to do serious damage to their roads. &nbsp; Will Take Action. &nbsp; In connection with the rates owing on freehold lands standing in the name of E. W. Black, situated in the parish of Gracemere, the Agricultural Bank advised that it had to date been un- successful in effecting a sale ...
