Federation. "We wanted something to play with, Something to love and adore." Old Song. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 November 1901

Federation. " We wanted something to play with, Something to love and adore." -Old Song. The toy, however, has already proved expen sive, and within a very short period this expense is likely to increase. None of the States show a reduction in expenditure to in any way coun ter-balance the enormous sums rapidly being juggled away by the Federal Parliament. The printing and other expenses axe proving a very valuable matter to Melbourne business firms, and that city is likely to be benefited- by an outlay of ;£i,500,000 per annum, when all things are considered. In the mean time this State has to practically look on while one of her leading industries is being crippled by a time-serving politician ; her trade hampered! by a tariff which is in keeping with the quality of the Barton Cabinet; her enormous expenditure on public buildings filched by means of ibe proposals of the Property Acquisition Bill; and only the New Guinea Question has been settled in any way satisfactory to Queensla...

MURRAY'S PLATEAU. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 November 1901

MURRAY'S PLATEAU. fc^.^3r magnificent plateau of rich land rises w up from the srrounding country about ^ seven miles north-westerly from Gayndah ^ and divides the Reid's Creek from the Burnett ? River; the tableland is some 300 feet above the surrounding country and is estimated to be some 6 miles wide, by about 12 miles long. The ascent is easy and there would be little diffi culty in the formation of roads over the entire sur face, as the plateau is as level almost as a billiard table. It is worth an extended reference, as when better communication is held with Gayndah this will become one of the greatest centres of farming in the district. The soil is a rich chocolate and black loam of great depth and perfectly free from stones and, as may be seen the subjoined analysis, is of the highest quality: - Root Fibres Stones Coarse Gravel Fine Soil, 99.83 (Sand) 59-9°% trace per cent. (Clay) 39-93% Moisture . .. . . . . . . 4.893% Volatile and Combustible Matter (princi pally organic) ...

"A 'POSSUM ABROAD." [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 November 1901

"A 'POSSUM ABROAD." * Greatly daring, " Ena" (Mrs. Harold) Lilley has republished in book form the letters from the old country she contributed to our vivacious contempoary, "Figaro," during her recent trip home, and the result has amply justified her enterprise. " A 'Possum Abroad" is a dainty little volume of some 120 pages, in which the impressions of a singularly receptive, sensitive and artistic mind are faithfully portrayed, and is intensely interesting from the first page to the last. It is not given to everyone to be able to re-animate the dry bones of common knowledge and every-dav information with the vivacity and flush of new-born life, and yet that is what Mrs. Lilley has most successfully accomplished. It is true that she had exceptional advantages, but it is equally true that she made exceptional use of them. Travelling under the escort of her father, Mr. Thomas Finney, she not only saw all that is generally visible to' the traveller, but had also opportunities of occa...

LITERATURE FOR THE BUSY MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 November 1901

LITERATURE FOR THE BUSY MAN. One of the most unique literary efforts on re cord is the "Library of Famous Literature," which has just been edited by Dr. Richard G'arnett, C.B., in association with M. Leon Vallee, Dr. Alois Brandl, and Dr. Donald G. Mitchell, and of which 19,000 sets of 20 octavo volumes each were distributed in England by the " Standard" in a few months. The project is almost unique of its kind. Though ambitious, it is practical, and for a small outlay anyone can place himself in pos session of a selection of the works of the great est masters of literature, accompanied by cri tical essays by men who are accorded without question the right to hold the first place in the several departments of letters with which they deal. Dr. Garnett is perhaps the one man living sufficiently qualified to undertake this task. He has just retired from the position of Keeper of the Printed Books at the British Mu seum, after spending nearly fifty years within its walls. During this ti...

The Districts of Queensland (14). The Wide Bay and Burnett district. -Continued. The Wide Bay and Burnett District, equal in area to about of the State comprising the watersheds of the Burnett and Mary Rivers, and are naturally well watered by those rivers and their tributary creeks. The features of the country are generally undulating, rising from wide and fertile valleys to broad and swelling uplands, the underlying rocks are granite, metamorphosed schists, limestones, sandstones of the carboniferous series, and occasional areas of basalt und other volcanic products. The soils, varying with the rocks, are principally sandy or clayey loams, black, red, or chocolate-coloured soils.

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

F IDIGI Stock and Station. The markets in this section are fairly firm all round, especially in beef, which is now worth 2os- per 100 lbs. Sheep remain stationary with a tendency to harden. Tallow has had a sharp fall, and should still become easier. Though there is certain to be a fall in the November Wool Sales, the London Market should keep the price fair'y steady, and as, by latest continental files, the big European buyers are two or three points short, a small fall may only be expected. The next London Sales being the concluding series for 1901 take place on the 26th of this month* when all arrivals up to the 18th will be offered. The following are prices current: - Cattle.-Extra prime bullocks, ^9 7s. 6d ; prime, ^£8 to ^8 12s. 6d ; good, £6 15s. to £7. 17s. 6d. ; prime cows to 11s.; good, £4 1 os. to -£4 17s. 6d.; light and inferior, £3 is. 6d. to £4.
