COMET. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
COMET. After some weeks of distressingly hot weather we were favoured with a fair fall of rain. Over 2 in. fell on Decem- ber 20th, with more the next day. In and near the township there was much less. On the last two days of the old &nbsp; year we received just over 2 in., and &nbsp; in consequence the country looks beauti- &nbsp; &nbsp; ful. The rivers are now slowly rising, &nbsp; and most of the creeks are running. At the head of the Comet River the rain was heavier and the river is in flood. For the year the total rainfall was 21 in. The first six months gave 12½ in. May, July, August and September were dry months. December was the wettest month with 6 in. In some parts of the surrounding districts the rainfall was much lighter. &nbsp; The water had disappeared and cattle had begun to die. Of late not many fat cattle have been trucked from here to the various markets, but during December nearly &nbsp; 400 horses were truck...
COUNTRY NEWS ALPHA. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
COUNTRY NEWS ALPHA. As there were no entertainments on for Christmas Eve a free dance was &nbsp; put on in the Hall. Miss D. Misto provided the music, while Mr. R. Pres- land was the M.C. Mr. T. Ziggenbine and Mrs. C. J. Patterson won the Monte Carlo waltz. Another dance &nbsp; was held in the hall on Wednesday night. Mr. A. J. Baker, the new manager of the Alpha branch of the Commercial &nbsp; Bank, took over on Monday. &nbsp; &nbsp; The Alpha Benefit Race Club put on a gymkhana and sports day on the 5th. Various events were run off, and &nbsp; a very enjoyable afternoon was spent. &nbsp; The various events resulted:— Best boy rider — R. Davis; three-legged race — Hamilton and Clews ; thread the needle (adults) —A. Jones ; thread the needle (boys)—A. Gaylor 1. S. Everingham 2; &nbsp; throwing at wicket (ladies)—Mrs. R. &nbsp; &nbsp; Jones : throwing at wicket ( men)— C. Anderson; stepping a distance (la...
THEODORE. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
THEODORE. On December 30th a splendid fall of rain was recorded, 202 points being re- gistered at the Experimental Farm. New Vear's Day is a recognised set- &nbsp; tlers' day in Theodore and the league to promote good fellowship organised a picnic which was held on the river bank on Mr. Tucker's property. Although the sky was very overcast and rain com- menced to fall, a good crowd attended. A number of sporting events were run off. In the evening a dance was held in the local hall which was well pa- tronised and which proved very enjoy- able. On Sunday there was a cricket revi- val, the married men fielding a team against the single men. Unfortunately the latter were handicapped by the ab- sence of J. Littlewood, who had been sent to hospital with a dislocated knee. The benedicts compiled 85 and 153 (Hic- key 23, Gleers 23, Brady 21. Newell 27, &nbsp; Cronin 36). The bachelors, in their only knock, were dismissed for 69 (Halliday 12. Adamson 13). Lees took eight wic...
BUNERU. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
BUNERU. The New Year was ushered in with a nice fall of steady rain, an inch to two inches falling throughout the dis- trict. This will be very beneficial to the cotton crop. The season has been good so far as cotton is concerned, and there is every prospect of a repetition of the famous good season of 1921. Some of the early planted cotton is looking exceptionally well, and is heav- ily loaded with large bolls. One farmer has reported that he has picked some ratoon cotton. The dairying industry is in full swing, and several dairymen are milking over &nbsp; 30 head. Over 40 head are being milked at some of the leading dairies. The Buneru Pastime Club held their annual meeting last Saturday evening, and the following office-bearers were elected — Chairman, Mr. P. Churchward ; secretary, Mr. W. Pitcher ; treasurer. Mr. S. Henderson. A vote of thanks was carried by acclamation to the retiring officers. Since the rain there has been a fresh in the Dee River, and as most of the f...
BARCALDINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
BARCALDINE. Althgouh some beneficial rains have fallen in various parts of the district, we have had little or nothing, and De- cember has passed without giving us the much-needed downfall. The past month has been a very trying one, sul- try and dry. During the month we re- gistered 15 centuries. The rainfall to- talled 18 points. December, 1929, re- gistered eight centuries with a total &nbsp; rainfall of 448 points. For the year we have registered 878 points, which fell on 28 days. Let us hope that this month will see a beneficial change in the &nbsp; weather, although January is not usu- &nbsp; ally a very hopeful month. January, &nbsp; 1929, gave only eight points, and this fell on three days. &nbsp; Recent stock movements have been: 3800 mixed sheep, Rodney to Forest Hill, &nbsp; Blackall, A. Hartland owner, 11. Pont &nbsp; in charge; 1680 sheep, Blackall to &nbsp; Longreach, J. M. Ellis owner. &nbsp; The N...
GOOVIGEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
GOOVIGEN. Mr. E. Schuenemann presided at a meeting of the School of Arts commit- tee on Wednesday night last. Accounts amounting to £18 12s. 7d. were passed for payment. A dance will be held on the night of February 1st in aid of the institution. So far there are 23 subscribers and the committee are hop- ing that many more will join up. The subscription is only 5s. per annum, and other members of the same household 2s. 6d. There is a good collection of &nbsp; &nbsp; books in the library. Anyone inter- ested should get in touch with the sec- retary (Mr. N. R. Mullally). The weather for the last few days has been fine except on Thursday after- noon when a sharp shower gave us five points. On Thursday night it turned quite chilly. It is now fine but ex- tremely hot. The Land Administration Board has approved of an acre of the Tee Holes on portion 9, parish of Earlsfield, being set aside as a water reserve. Guovigen, January 10 1930.
CAPELLA. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
CAPELLA. The Capella Amateur Race Club are &nbsp; promoting a benefit race meeting in aid of the Capella Doctor's Fund to be held on January 11th. Six events are on the programme and horses competing at this meeting will be sold by auction on the morning of the races with the exception of the two Snowball Hack Handicaps. For these events 12 horses, as evenly matched as possible, will be provided by the club and these horses must all start in the races selected for them. The first 12 applications accompanied by a £1 will be accepted for these horses. They will be balloted for by the President and the drawer of each horse will be entitled to race that horse for the day. In past meetings this has proved most successful and attractive. The various stewards and committee are leaving no stone unturned for the success of the afternoon and good sport will be provided for the big attendance that is antici pated. Gordon Downs commenced shearing to- day. Last week a good storm, yield- ...
STANWELL. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
STANWELL. Since my last letter the weather has been cool and pleasant, with a strong easterly breeze and with every appear- ance of further rains. During the past few months the farmers have had a bad time, planting and re-planting, with little or no return, but they are now jubilant as a result of the recent rains and will be very busy for a while preparing and planting further crops of millet, corn, cowpeas, pumpkins, &c. &nbsp; A splendid spring is noticeable in the grass. The dairymen are already get- ting an increased supply of milk and cream and all feel assured that they have a better outlook ahead. At a meeting of the members of the Loyal Stanwell Lodge. M.U.I.O.O.F., held recently, it was decided to hold a social and dance on January 18th. The secretary was instructed to engage Miss Johnson's Blue Bird Orchestra and to seek support from the various lodges in the order for their support. Other arrangements were finalised and the function promises to be a succ...

THANGOOL A dance in aid of School of Arts funds, was held in the goods shed on New Year's night. Mr. A. Perry sup- plied the music gratis, while Mr. J. Kurtz officiated as M.C.

YARWUN. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
YARWUN. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The most welcome feature of the fes- tive season for us was the long looked for rain. Fine soaking rain fell dur- ing the early part of Christmas week, but both Christmas Day and Boxing &nbsp; Day were fine. The total rainfall was in the vicinity of 280 points. The grass has come on wonderfully in the short time and the country side now presents a picture. Much more rain is wanted to fill up the waterholes and run the creeks and by the appearance of the sky at the time of writing, more rain is not far off. Since last Sunday strong south-easterly winds have been blowing, &nbsp; with the result that the days and nights are unusually cool for this time of the year. &nbsp; &nbsp; The Yarwun School of Arts Commit- tee, held a dance on December 31st. The hall was very tastefully decorated with flowers and greenery. Unfortunately, owing to the rain during the da...
MT. MORGAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
MT. MORGAN. Mr. F. Bowen, Assistant Town Clerk, Mt. Morgan, has received the pleasing intelligence that he was successful in securing a pass in the subjects of com- pany law and bankruptcy at the final examination of the Federal Institution of Accounts held in November last. Mr. Frank Byron, who for the past ten years has been employed by the Mt. Morgan Goldmining Co. as an en- gine driver, and is president of the En- gine-drivers' Association and Soldiers' League, intends to reside in Brisbane, where he has bought a business. Both Mr. and Mrs. Byrom will be missed by their large circle of friends, who wish them the best of luck in their new ven- ture. The seriousness of having only one doctor in the town has again become manifest. Dr. O'Hara, the medical su- perintendent of the hospital, took seri- ously ill on Saturday, and a doctor had to be requisitioned from Rockhamp- Bridal party of the Brady-Moloney wedding. The photo is by Studios Ltd.. ton. This doctor attended at the hospi...

EMERALD. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
EMERALD. Very pleasant weather conditions have prevailed for the past week. The sky has been heavily overcast at times, with every appearance of wet weather &nbsp; setting in, but our expectations have not been realised. As a result of the recent rains, the country now is look- ing particularly well, green grass shoot- ing through everywhere. The water problem, which was becoming serious on many properties, has been alleviated, as the Nogoa River for the past week has been running very strongly. The Emerald golf links were officially opened by the Patron (Mr. John Gay) on Wednesday afternoon in the presence of an exceptionally large number of en- thusiasts and friends. The occasion was made a novelty afternoon, when a very entertaining programme of novelty items was put through. At 4 o'clock Mr. Gay addressed those present, thanking the club for the honour conferred upon him. He then hit the first ball off. Three cheers were given for Mr. Gay. The Emerald Brass Band was in a...
SPRINGSURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
SPRINGSURE. Despite the heavy rain throughout the district prior to New Year, there was an exceptionally large attendance at the Catholic ball held on New Year's Eve. &nbsp; Sparkling music was supplied by Mr. Wilson's Emerald Orchestra and dancing continued until a late hour, a most en- joyable evening being spent by all. As the result of their efforts over £21 was cleared. Mr. E. L. Stapleton was M.C. Although the weather conditions have been very favourable for rain, none has fallen for the last week. Moderate tem- peratures prevail, with a cool breeze. Springsure, January 8, 1930.
WINTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
WINTON. As advised by telegram, graziers, and &nbsp; incidentally everyone else in this dis- trict, are on tenterhooks for fear we are going to miss the wet season. If it does not come soon the result will be tragic. Clouds rise every day, but they don't even look like giving us any rain. It is estimated that properties on an average are stocked up to 75 per cent of normal times, though some stations are very lightly stocked, and the latter will have the least to lose if the sea- son is a bad one. Mr. Taylor, from Coonamble, N.S.W., who some months ago purchased Wando selection, took possession recently, and is now living on the property. The ven- dor, Mr. R. J. V. Williams, has pur- chased Larrac selection, Muttaburra district, and he and Mrs. Williams have gone there to reside. Messrs. Semon and Son, who pur- chased Ingle Downs a few years ago, have severed their connection with this district and returned to Toowoomba. The Australian Agricultural Co., prac- tically since t...
SAPPHIRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
SAPPHIRE. Changeable weather prevails through- out the district, with alternate clouds and sunshine. No rain of any account has fallen for the week. Constable O. Peters is at present re- lieving Constable J. O'Malley, who is on holidays. At a meeting of the local school com- mittee, held in the week, tenders for the erection of the school playshed were received, that of Mr. A. Spencer being accepted. Most of the trippers have now re- turned to the field and things are settl- ing into the usual groove. Sapphire, January 8, 1930.

RAGLAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930
RAGLAN. The weather for the last four days has been very cool and threatening. The year started well, as 359 points have already been recorded. Last year's &nbsp; rainfall was up to the average of other years, yet it was a bad year for dairy- men as the rain fell at the wrong period to do good. We had 53 wet days for a total of 6532 points, which fell as follows:— January 826 points, February 2759, March 336, April 911, May nil, &nbsp; June 604, July nil, August nil, Septem- ber nil, October 252, November 453, De- cember 188. The fall in December was the lowest since 1920. &nbsp; At afternoon tea, at the conclusion of &nbsp; cricket matches played on the local &nbsp; wicket on Sunday last, between Houri- gan Creek and Friar Creek, won after a very close game by the former by 23 &nbsp; runs, a presentation of a leather writing case, with initials engraved, was made to Mr. L.
