YEPPOON. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

YEPPOON. Unsettled weather has continued since New Year's Day, but it did not inconvenience or dampen the holiday spirit. King Carnival still goes on do ing good business nightly and the multi- coloured electric lights give the town a glad appearance. The rain has been a blessing to the farmers who have experienced a very dry spell, which was reflected in the cream supply and crops. This good soaking rain will ensure good feed and untold benefit to the orchardists. Apparently a number of campers are under the impression they have been harshly treated by the Council, which is resuming the camping reserve as a recreation park for children and day picnickers. In the first place this grant from the Government was for a recrea- tion reserve and gardens and it is the only reserve for that purpose which Yeppoon can claim. The growth of the town demands progress on modern lines to conform with conditions prevailing in all other progressive seaside resorts. The visitors to Yeppoon, rapidly i...

AMBROSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

AMBROSE. The district of late has been very fortunate regarding rain up to 3 in. fall-   ing in various parts. The Rhodes grass   paddocks are a picture.   A CANE TRAIN crossing the Mowbray River bridge, near Port Douglas. The New Year passed off very quietly. On Sunday last while Mrs. Reg. Beer, a daughter, and friend were out driv- ing in a sulky, the traces came off and the horse bolted. All were thrown out. Miss Nancy Beer received a fracture of the left arm and wrist, while the other occupants escaped unhurt. The little sufferer was attended to by the Mt Lar- com Ambulance, which conveyed her to Rockhampton for further treatment.   The fruit growers are all busy at present planting for the coming winter crop of tomatoes. The season should be a record for Ambrose. A combined meeting of the L.P.A. and Fruit Growers' Association will be held on Friday next at 8 p.m. for the pur- pose of arranging a suitable send-off to Mr. H. E. ...

TAMBO COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

TAMBO COUNCIL. The ordinary monthly meeting of the Tambo Shire Council was held on the 3rd instant. In the absence of Dr. J. Duncan Walker, Cr. C. G. Gall was voted to the chair. Others present were:—Crs. G. Foote, P. L. Barry, E. E. Parr, C. T. Mills and G. H. Brown. The inward correspondence included a letter from the Home Secretary cover- ing a copy of the recent amendments to the Local Authorities Acts and giv- ing information concerning the princi-- pal alterations.         The State Government Insurance Office, Rockhampton, advised that the Council had inadvertently overcharged premium under a policy for £450 cover- ing Council offices and bulk store, and asking for the policy to be forwarded for the necessary endorsement when a re- fund of £8 0s. 8d. would be allowed. The Local Authorities Association gave an opinion that the Council had the same powers with regard to stock routes within the shire as it had over reserves and...

MT. MORGAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

MT. MORGAN. Mr. William Hempseed, the well known blacksmith and farmer, of Mt Morgan and Walmul, who has retired from active work, has returned to Mt. Morgan after three months' holiday in the Southern States. His longest stay was in Western Australia, where a brother-in-law, whom he had not seen for 28 years, has a prosperous farm in the country, called New Land, near Donnybrook. The main item is the cul- tivation of potatoes, which average eight tons to the acre, but as much as 16 tons have been taken off. At the time of Mr. Hempseed's arrival in the State the price was £18 per ton. Just before his leaving the price had dropped to   £8; but even at this price they were payable. The farmer before he can reap the benefit has to do a lot of hard work; it cost as much as £80 an acre to clear the land; it was thick with timber. There is plenty of water at this particular part of W.A. In the winter it rains nearly every night, and just before his departure the cold was so b...

TAMBO HOSPITAL BOARD [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

TAMBO HOSPITAL BOARD The chairman (Mr. G. Foote) pre- sided at the monthly meeting of the Tambo Hospitals Board on the 3rd instant. Others present were Messrs. C. & Gall, G. H. Brown, T. J. Acton, E. C. Brace, W. L. Ward, and E. E Parr, the medical officer, and the sec- retary.   An apology was received from Mr. L. P. Kent. Mr. N. McLean, West Quarter, for- warded subscriptions totalling £12 12s., which had been acknowledged with   thanks. Mr. McLean also asked for information as to the position in re- spect to the hospital, of employees of stations and others who worked outside the area of the Shire Council's levy for hospital maintenance, and yet   were more closely connected with Tambo than any other town and were possibly property owners in Tambo. The general opinion expressed by the members was that a patient com- ing from a place outside the area had the same claim for admission as one from within the area, the only differ- ence b...

GRACEMERE. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

GRACEMERE. Last week end a most appreciable change took place in the weather, and on the first three days of the week the temperature did not rise above 78 deg. The nights were considerably cooler, which made it necessary to resort to the use of blankets. We are, however, again experiencing seasonable heat, and to-day the thermometer was hovering round the 100 mark. The recent rains have caused a luxurious growth in the pastures and some heavy crops of hay are ready for the mower. Given a couple of weeks' fine weather, farm- ers will be able to harvest them. Hay- making at this time of the year is al- ways a risky undertaking; in many instances after the crop has been mow- ed, rain sets in and the whole lot is destroyed.   At the half-yearly meeting of the Loyal Gracemere Lodge, M.U.I.O.O.F., the following officers were elected:—   P.N.G., Bro. S. F. Fisher; N.G., Bro. H. Schirmer; V.G., Sister A. Armour; E.S., Bro. W. Childs; Warden, Sister   ...

COUNTRY CHILDREN. PROPOSED HOSTEL [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

COUNTRY CHILDREN. PROPOSED HOSTEL   The following is an official statement from the trustees of the Rockhampton Girls' Grammar School regarding the   proposed establishment in Rockhamp-   ton of a hostel for school children:— This establishment of hostels in con- nection with High Schools has been an objective of the Teachers' Union for some years, but the proposal has not been favoured by successive Ministers for Public Instruction.     It will be found that the present pro- posal is an indirect means of attain- ing the above objective, and that the High School will be practically the only gainer. The Principal of the High School   claims that 26 pupils attend the school from outside centres. He did not men- tion that there was no liberty of choice under a system that permitted a ''High School pass'' to be available only at a High School. In several instances the Grammar School authorities have been appro...

THE GRACEMERE STUDS. HEREFORD, SHORTHORN, AND RED POLLS AN HISTORIC REVIEW. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

THE GRACEMERE STUDS. HEREFORD, SHORTHORN, AND RED POLLS ——     AN HISTORIC REVIEW. By '' Herdsman.'' Dr. J. B. Orr, who visited Australia recently and who is a world authority on animal nutrition, said: ''Australia is destined to become the world's greatest stock farm.'' While we may hope that this statement will some day be true, it is already agreed that it will pay Australia to increase and improve its beef pro- duction, and fortunately for Australia, it has all the necessary qualifications to do this, and to do it well. The earliest stud farm to pioneer the breeding of high class cattle in Central Queensland, and one which has continually assisted in building up the high reputation which Queensland holds as a stock breeding country, is Gracemere. No list of noted studs would be complete unless it embraced this name, and the evolu- tion and popularity of the Hereford in Central Queensland to-day has been due largely to the enterprise and energy of this w...

BEEF EXPORT TRADE. CAN WE SAVE IT? [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

BEEF EXPORT TRADE. CAN WE SAVE IT? Our special representative at Can- berra writes: — There are about 13,000,000 head of cattle in Australia, sufficient for a population of 9,000,000. Our popula- tion to-day is nearing the 7,000,000 mark, but instead of increasing, our herds are decreasing. Presently we shall require all our cattle for our own local requirements. Is our export trade, then, to become a thing of the past?   ANOTHER PICTURE OF FANFARE II. LADY RAYMOND (GRACEMERE STUD COW.) Last year we exported beef represent- ing 250,000 head of cattle. Each year our normal increase of population de- mands 30,000 extra head of cattle for local requirements, so that it can easily be seen that within seven or eight years our present exportable surplus will be required for local consumption. The Northern Territory offers a great field for profitable cattle production if the conditions of tenure are made suffi- ciently encouraging. What is the policy of the Federal Labour Gov...

OUR BRADFORD LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

OUR BRADFORD LETTER Our special correspondent at Brad- ford writes under date December 5th— The outstanding feature of the last series of London sales for 1929 is that numerous new clips have been cata- logued, this series being characterised each year by the commencement of the offering of these wools. As shearing commences in July in Queensland, and in   August in New South Wales, clips can reach London by November. It is note- worthy that the N.Z. and A. Land Co. Ltd., the owners of the largest sheep stations in Australia, still send their clips to London. It is not the writer's business to tell either growers or sellers what to do, but one cannot but think that if over a number of years, better prices were not forthcoming in London than in Australia, the clips would not be sent here. Our immedi- ate concern, however, is the wool which actually comes to the hammer in Cole- man-street, and it can be said without any exaggeration that the new wool is particularly inter...

COTTON GROWING. IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

COTTON GROWING. IN AUSTRALIA. Our special representative at Can- berra writes: — ''Provided Parliament approves broadly of the duties which have now been laid upon the table, I think there is a very good pros- pect indeed that the cotton indus- try in Queensland will be estab- lished on a thoroughly satisfactory basis and become in due time self- supporting, without any extraneous aids from Government other than that which the tariff and the protec- tion of the secondary industry affords.'' The above statement was made by   Senator Massy Greene, chairman of the British Australian Cotton Association, in the course of an interview with the writer a day or two ago. ''It is a very noteworthy fact with regard to the cultivation of cotton,'' he went on to say, ''that the results which are being obtained on the small irriga- tion settlement at Theodore, in the Dawson River Valley, are such that the extension of the irrigation is worthy of the fullest and most careful considera...

FROM DUSTY FILES. ADVERTISEMENTS OF 70 YEARS AGO. WHERE ROMANCE LURKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

FROM DUSTY FILES. ADVERTISEMENTS OF 70 YEARS AGO. ————               WHERE ROMANCE LURKS.   He who braves the dust of old newspaper files finds a wealth of romance. He may rove the years and may breathe the spirit of the times in which those papers were written and printed, and thrilled, bored, or amused their readers. He need not confine himself to the news columns either, for in the advertising sections lie a world of romance, drama, comedy, and pathos. Times have changed, and advertising has changed with them. The   newspaper advertisements of the middle of last century have a de- lightful courtesy of form, a pedantic style of wording, and at times a startling and even libellous frankness, now, alas, no more. The advertisements, perhaps., reflect the times more truly than the news section which chronicles events. It is hard to imagine that some 70 years ago in Rock...

TARIFF PROBLEMS. CARBIDE AND WHISKY. ROCKHAMPTON, January 7. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

TARIFF PROBLEMS. CARBIDE AND WHISKY. ROCKHAMPTON, January 7. Representatives of the Rockhampton Merchants' Association waited on Mr. F. M. Forde, Acting Minister for Trade and Customs, at the City Council Cham- bers yesterday to place before him cer- tain hardships which they claimed were imposed upon them by the new tariff. Mr. Forde, after giving the deputation an attentive hearing, promised to go into the matter with the Comptroller-   General on his return to Canberra. The subjects dealt with by the depu- tation embraced the duty on bottled whisky, carbide, tinned goods and the differential duty on overseas ships after they reached port. The deputation, which consisted of Messrs. G. H. Baker, C. L. Harden, W. L. Hobler, and A. E. Skyes, was intro- duced by Senator W. G. Thompson, who, later, thanked Mr Forde for his atten- tive hearing. Mr. Sykes stated that the far wes- tern consumers insisted on the Nor- wegian carbide in preference to the Tas- manian article.

Motor Notes OIL PURIFICATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

Motor Notes   (Conducted by '' Radiator. '') OIL PURIFICATION. The following interesting article upon ''oil purification, with special reference to aero and high-speed engines,'' has been prepared by the Engineering De- partment of the Shell Oil Company: — The last ten years have witnessed a growing popularity in the use of mineral oils for the lubrication of the high com- pressioned aero engine, and the neces- sity has arisen for designing some means of dealing with oxidised matter and other impurities, attendant on the use of this particular type of lubricat- ing oil. Oxidisation produces a black insoluble compound generally known as carbon, and the process of carbonisa- tion takes place at a varying rate ac- cording to the engine temperature, viscosity of the lubrication, etc. The oil is in contact with engine parts, pis- tons, etc., in a film of varying thick-   ness, and the result of heat applied to these parts in the course of engine performance is t...
