FRUIT GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1901

FRUIT GARDEN. A large amount of work is necessary in the fruit garden during this month. See that, the soil is well worked around each tree. Spray where necessary to keep down insects. Watch the fig trees, which are just shooting out new growth, and where grub appears pick them off and put into the fire. Trees of a tropical nature-custard apples, mangoes, etc., should be planted, well mulched, and watered until they get a good hold of the soil; do not neglect the strawberries, although they have given over fruiting for the season; encourage the runners. To strengthen the plants for next year fill up a quantity of small flower pots of pieces of bamboo about 4 or 5 inches long, with some nice light soil; place them in the soil round the old plants, and peg a nice strong runner in each; water well, and in a few days they will be rooted in the pots. When the little plants are fairly strong and well rooted, cut the runners separating the young plants from the old. In a few more days all ...

KITCHEN GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1901

KITCHEN GARDEN. Keep the ground well stirred around grow ing plants, applying plenty of water and liquid manure or fertiliser to prolong the winter vege table season. Dig up every vacant part ready to plant on the first appearance of rain. Sow sweet corn, lettuce, okra, pumpkins, cucumber and melons. If not already done plant .cut tings of sweet potatoes. Keep melons, pump kins, and cucumber plants well watered and mulched as they appear. This must not be forgotten, as if the young plants suffer from the want of water, the fruit will be ruined.

BUSH HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1901

BUSH HOUSE. Gloxinias, Achimenes, and Caladiums will require a more liberal supply of water, as they are making growth and filling the pots with roots. Gloxinias do not like being watered over the foliage; they make better plants when the foliage is kept dry. Shelter the plants from wind, water freely at the roots, and shade slightly. This is a good month to propagate all soft wooded plants; prepare a ligrht, moist corner for the laying down of foliage, begonia leaves, etc. Make the soil light with a good percentage of sand and leaf mould; leave 2or ? inches of the stalk on the leaf, and lay it flat on the soil ; if the situation is suitable they will start to grow in a week's time. Keep the soil well stirred or forked around all plants. In the rockeries fill up all gaps, selecting the best of everything, dis carding useless varieties, which are apt to take full possession of it he rockery. Re-pot all plants requiring a shift at once, as the season is now getting late for this work....

Field, Orchard and Garden. FOR OCTOBER. FLOWER GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1901

Field, Orchard and Garden. FOR OCTOBER. (By Mr. Jas. Mitchell, Bowen Park.) FLOWER GARDEN. This should be a busy month in the flower garden, as flowers are in great demand dur ing summer and autumn months. Chrysan themums should be seen to at once; have the ground thoroughly well prepared, and in dig ging put the manure well down ; see that the ground is well drained, and if blooms are wanted for show purposes, do not make the ground too rich in first preparing the soil. It is better to feed the plants after they have made their flowering buds. It is also advisable to get special varieties imported from time to time, as some of our very best varieties seem to deteriorate if we grow them in our own garden year after year. This has frequently been noticed with varieties such as William Tricker, Yellow Coronet, Charles Shea, Louis Boehmer, and many other good old varieties. To grow the chrysanthemum for ordinary pur poses such as making a show in the garden, or for cut flowers, dig in ...

The Palmer Goldfield. 1 ' ? 'I ' ? ~ l-U/V AMOUS as the head waters ami cJtnel triouiaries ui uie Mitchell River are for minerals, the Paimer River undoubtedly holds its own in superiority as a gold pro ducer far and away above its more southern confreres, the main Mitcheli River, and its tributary streams, ihe Hodg kinson, Walsh and Tate Rivers. It can well be termed the greatest alluvial goid-producing district ever discovered ui Queensland. The known auriferous belt exceeds 2,000 square miles; payable aLuvial gold has been found in the bed of the .faimer River for a distance of 100 miles. At Maytown, and its vicinity, nuggets of gold have been found up to 100 ounces in weight, generally witti adherent particles of quartz, showing the proximity of the quartz veins with which the gold was associated. With the exception of gold obtained from Mount Morgan, and the New Placer Mine in New Mexico, the Palmer River gold brought the highest price in the world. Gold was first discovered by...

MINING The Minerals and Precious Stones of Queensland—Continued. The Woolgar Goldfield. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1901

ihe Minerals and Precious Stones of Queensland-Continued. BY WM. LEES. The Woolgar Gold field. The Woolgar Goldfield is situated on the head waters of the Woolgar River, a main tributary of the Flinders, about 180 miles N.W. of Hughenden, the terminus of the Northern Railway from the port of Townsville; and about 150 miles south of Georgetown, the chief centre of the Etheridge Goldfield. The field extends northward from Merton Ponds to the southern edge of the great Desert Sandstone tableland (a part of the Gregory Range), and across the tableland for a distance of twenty miles to the watershed of the Percy and Gilbert rivers. The sides of this desert tableland, at the head of the Woolgar, rise up in cliffs and capes similar .to a rugged sea coast, with great pillars of white quarlz glistening in the sun, standing isolated at inter vals, towering up to the level of the distant Gregory Ranges, and giving the landscape an aspect of desolate grandeur. There are permanent waterholes on ...

To Farmers and Pig Growers Generally. NOW that PIG RAISING is becoming an important part of Farmers' work, it is desirable that they should have a clear idea of what class of MEAT is required by the MANUFACTURER. In all parts of the World, and in this Colony in particular, the demand is only for LEAN MEDIUM-SIZED BACON. By LEAN BACON, we mean that a large amount of LEAN, STREAKY MEAT must predominate. To get this, Farmers must give more attention to their Breed of PIGS ; the common ill-bred swine, which give so much fat, must be dispensed with. As bacon-curers, we recommend the medium BERKSHIRE PIG, which, properly fed, will, at 7 months old, produce the class of BACON we desire. In order to enable Farmers to secure this breed, we have established a stud at our farm at Zillmere, and growers desiring to improve their stock will kindly communicate with us, and we will be pleased to furnish all par ticulars as to price. «J. C. HUTTON & CO., HAM AND BACON CURERS, ZILLMERE AND BR...

Mining in the District. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1901

\ ({lining in ©istriet. An Old Prospector. West from the Gympie-Maryborough Railway, at the terminus of the Kiikivan branch line, is the goidfield, Mining District, and town of Kilkivan, a rich mineral centre, which for a great number of years has supported a number of miners. Opened early in 1868, the rich alluvial gold on the Wide Bay Creek and tributary waters attracted a large population, which quickly spreading over the adjoining country, found deposits of various ores among the ridges and moun tainous country lying to the west. The goldfield has an area of 17,920 acres, in the centre of which is situated the township of Kilkivan. Surrounding this area is the mineral district of Kilkivan, where have been found in varying quantities the leading minerals known to science-gold, alluvial, and lode cinnabar (quicksilver ore), chalcopyrite, chrome ore, bismuth, copper, cobalt, silver lead, tin ore, etc. This district is now having fresh attention paid to its rich mineral resources, a...

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

Hl|@rtiewfture.>+ Maryborough has often been rightly termed a garden of Queens land, and not to be surpassed in wealth and floral beauty by any town in the State. The town lies on an ami of the river, and the land is unusually fertile, being composed chiefly of rich alluvial loam, and from the river's edge, to the boundaries of the municipality, gardens abound everywhere. Years ago, a taste for floriculture was promoted, owing to the close attention bestowed by the late R. B. Sheridan^ on the Public Gardens, which has been ably seconded by the prominent residents of the town, Messrs. Corser, Harrington, Braddock, Stupart, The Wharves, Looking dcwn Stream. Wesleyan Church. Maryborough Hospital. Church of England. Tinana Creek, Near Teddington Waterworks. [.Photos l y Poulsen, Maryborough.'] Hon. A. H. Wilson, White, the late Jas. Stafford, and many others.

The Railway Commissioner's Report. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1901

The Railway Commissioner's Report. The Annual Report of the Railway Com- missioner this year is, at the first glance, of a most dispiriting nature. In concise and clear language, Mr. Gray puts forth the facts of the case. He admits that there is a falling off of nearly a quarter of a million in comparison with last year's figures, and does not take an optimistic view of railway revenue for the ensuing year. This at the first glance is dis- piriting, but a careful reader of the report can plainly see that the Commissioner has his strong grip on his great department, and that he has all his forces arrayed to fight against the ill-luck which has followed Railway Revenue during the past year. By " ill-luck " one can only mean the happenings directed by Providence. The drought—that terrible scourge of our State—has forced the hand of the Department and caused a great deficit, where, under other circumstances, there should reasonably have been a surplus. But the drought, though it has ent...

DRIVING PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 November 1901

DRIVING PIGS. A cloud of dust in the distance. It rose as if from a smoking fire. As you came nearer a horse between the shafts of a dray could be seen, and then the dray itself, the wheels help ing to create some of the smother we were ap proaching. A bit of hard road intervened, and the wind coming up, swept to the east the heavy cloudy and then tfcfe cause came to view, hundreds of pigs in all sizes of fatness rolled, pushed, screamed, squealed, grunted, and struggled to reach the tail of the dray. Every now and then one, two, or three, never more, stopped, arched' their backs and brought their snouts with a jerk to the ground. No driver was at the rear, and yet this great mob of squealers pressed steadily onward. We passed alongside, and turned to look for the cause, for the driver of the dray appeared a modern ver sion of the Pied Piper of Hamlin, and there from beneath the tail board of the dray trickled slowly, methodically, a broken stream of maize. My companion laughed; I r...

A Bread Question and the Tariff. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 November 1901

A Bread Question and the Tariff. One matter of importance to the wheat growers of this State in connection with the incidence of the new tariff, is the effect that the removal of the inter-State duties will have upon such important commodities as wheat and flour. Heretofore wheat has been liable to a duty of 4d. per bushel, while flour has had an impost of 20/- per ton of 2,000 lbs. The result of this charge has been a distinct advan tage to farmers in Queensland, an amount equal to the combined duties having at times been paid to wheat-growers for the cereal over and above that paid to the southern growers, and, considering the greater returns per acre ob tained in Queensland, local growers have been in a pre-eminent position. It may have ap peared to many farmers, and it has been, not unsuccessfully advertised, that the millers of Queensland have reaped distinct advantages from the late duties upon wheat, and that now the duties are removed much greater will be their gain. But to ...
