TEWANTIN AND NOOSA. "Gems of the Northland, never yet Were lakes in lovelier valleys set, Glassing the granite and the pines." [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 December 1901

TEWANTIN AND NOOSA. 14 Gems of the Northland, never yet Were lakes in lovelier valleys set, Glassing the granite and the pines." The beauties of these two favourite holiday seaside resorts of the great mining town of Gympie are little known by the resi dents further south, chiefly owing to the length of journey neces sary to reach them. For sport, however, and beautiful scenery Tewantin. they can scarce be equalled. Lake and river and ocean present to the eye harmonies of beauty whichever way one turns. Weeks can be well spent at any portion of the year in this charming locality without exhausting its beauties, while sailing, bathing, and shooting are additional inducements to a prolonged holiday. The route from Brisbane is by the North Coast Railway Line, through most interesting country, passing the extraordinary Glass House Mountain, and belts of tropical scrub and sugar fields, which flank the railway line the whole way to Cooroy rail way station, an interesting journey of 81 mi...

Margarine Manufacture in Queensland. Briefly the manufacture of oleomargarine ia Queensland! is as follows: (a) Good caul fat is soaked for 24 hours in iced1, filtered water. Temperature from 45° to 36° according to weather condi tions. (b) After soaking, the fat is well minced in a mincing machine. (c) The minced1 fat is placed in steel, steam jacketed, open cylindrical pans. Steam at about 30 lbs. to the square inch is then turned on, and the fat melted with the aid of rotatory stirrers fixed in the pan, and wet steam at about 50 lbs. to the square inch.

The "Courier" and Wheat Buyers. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 December 1901

-V " Courier " and Wheat Buyers. The commercial column of the Brisbane " Courier" has upon several occasions come in for severe castigation at the hands of business men in the city who are interested. The latest came from the well known house, The Queens land Milling Co., one of the largest buyers of wheat in Queensland. The paragraph they took strong exception to appeared in the "Courier" on November 15th:-"We have been shown a letter from a Downs farmer al luding to the finesse resorted to by wheat buyers last season to secure purchasers. ' One gentleman/ he writes, ' had in his pocket a small bottle of very fine-looking wheat, which he exhibited to everyone, and stated that it was a sample of a large parcel which had beea bought in New South Wales at 2/8, and that if the farmers held on to their wheat this lot would be landed in Toowoomba at once . . . His great trick was to offer you more as a dead secret, it being the highest price he had given. This went down with some. . . Bu...

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 December 1901

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 mustv 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.

THE ISIS SCRUB. yHAT is known as the Isis district is a large tract of volcanic soil about 13 miles long and 8 to 10 miles wide, situated some 36 miles north-west of Maryborough, and 20 miles south-west of Bundaberg. A railway line connects the district with the North Coast railway line, at Isis Junction Station. This branch line is some 19 miles long. From the Junction to near Horton, 8 miles, the line goes through poor forest country, a continuation of the Wallum country overlying the coal measures of the Burrum; but past here, on either side of the line, is a succession of canefields,. showing by the vigorous growth the richness of the soil beneath. x*.bout a mile on from Horton, with canefields on either side, is the Doolbi Mill, devoted so far to expressing juice from the cane, which is now taken in long boiler-like tanks to the Millaquin Refinery by rail. This mill is the property of the Millaquin and Yengarie Sugar Co., and this season is expected to complete a crushing of up...
