BINGERA. GIN GIN and CURRAJONG CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 December 1901

BINQERA. GIN GIN and CURRAJONG CREEK., LTHOUGH the chief sugar-growing lands may- be said to lie east of the Gladstone-Brisbane railway , line; between Bundaberg and the Kolan River, there are great stretches of rich soil flanking both the Burnett and Kolan streams,' ^ which have been cultivated for sugar-cane and other crops for many years. Oakwood (the property of Messrs. H. Palmer & Sons), and Sharon (the property of the Millaquin and Yengarie Sugar Co.), and Kalbar (owned by the Queens land Investment Co.) sugar mills can be seep near the Mt. Perry railway line, a short distance, comparatively, from North Bundaberg railway station; while upon the opposite or south bank of the Burnett River, is the old Millbank plantation (the property of Messrs. Buss and Penny), two and a-half miles from Bundaberg, and Bonna, some seven miles from the, town, the property of Messrs. Carter and Raby. Each of these is surrounded by great fields of sugar-cane, while further afield are grown ...

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

Field, diehard ami Banian. FOR DECEMBER. Mr. Jas. Mitchell, Bowen Park.) ! FLOWER GARDEN. I Cleanliness should'prevail , in every corner of the garden at this season of the year. If flowers are scarce, cut the edges of beds and walks, tie up all plants requiring stalks, such as dahlias, chrysanthemums, sunflowers, and late flowering gladiolus. Fork and trim up flower beds, and make up all vacant spaces with summer annuals, such as zinnias, cosmos, celosia, amarantus, etc. Put in cuttings of coleus and chrysanthemum plants to make a show during April and May. Keep the ground well watered and mulched with stable manure. Flowers cannot be well grown where too much under the influence of large trees. If trees are grown over the beds, andi if good flowers are expected, cut down the trees or shift the beds from under their influence. Fig roots will run along distance to get into a nice, well worked and- manured bed. If roots are found in the beds, run a trench at right angles between the ...

GOOBURRUM AND THE KOLAN. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 December 1901

GOOBURRUM AND THE KOLAN. THIS area is some 12 miles square, stretching from the north bank of the Burnett to the Kolan River, and is bounded on ? the east side by the seashore. The first scrub felled in the district was upon that side of the river, and the machinery for the first sugar mill was landed and erected on that side, and the first , town lots were subdivided out of Messrs. Alexander's selection there about ; but the Government thought it best for a township to be estab lished out of the bush-covered land on the south side,* and the north side thus became but a suburb, which the floods of 1891 and 1893 did Bourbon Street, Bundaberg, looking East. not assist towards prosperity. The soil is somewhat different to that on the south side of the river, for whereas on the south side it is all detritus from the volcanic basalt, and long lines of low walls have been built of the modules of volcanic ash; on the north side it is a rich alluvium apparently derived from the upper reache...

Hay Bricks for Horses. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 December 1901

Hay Bricks for Horses. Colonel Graves, late 20th Hussars, writes, with reference to " Hay Bricks for Horses ": "The War Office use for service in the field1 an<i on boardv ship several compressed articles of diet for animals. There is a ' hay cake,' a cake made of chopped hay and crushed oats; a cake made of bran; and1 a ' corn cake/ made of crushed grain, with about J ft of hay chop to give it binding and firmness. " This * corn cake' was invented by me in the year 1878, and experimented upon by the War Office Forage Committee in competition with a great number of other inventions, mostly in the form of concentrations. " On the recommendat'on of the committee, it was adopted' by the Government, to the exclusion of all the others, and has been used in every war that we have been engaged in since. "The horse's stomach, instead of being a very large organ, is about the smallest food receptacle known to anatomy in proportion to the total mass of the animal. The horse, theref...

THE WOONGARRA. "The smell of wild pastures in blossom, Of fresh earth upturned by the plough; Where the uplands and all the green hillsides Lead the way to the Hummock's rough brow." [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 December 1901

THE WOONGARRA. " The smell of wild pastures in blossom, Of fresh earth upturned by the plough; Where the uplands and all the green hillsides Lead the way to the Hummock's rough brow." THIS portion of the district is a great tract of rich volcanic soil, some 12 miles square, commencing just beyond1 the Bunda berg town boundary on the east and running right out to the sea coast, some 12 miles distant. Its northern boundary is the Burnett River, and its southern one the Elliott River. Slightly undulating over almost the whole area it is an ideal locality for farming purposes, and from the Hummock a volcanic hill rising; up in almost the centre of the cultivated area, a sight is obtainable which is equalled in beauty only by cane areas on the more northern rivers or the waving wheat fields of the Darling Downs. As one passes along the magnificent macadamised road connecting Bundaberg with the coast, and observes the well-farmed land and the pleasant dwellings, standing in the midst of t...

The Districts of Queensland (15). BUNDABERG Past[?] PRESENT [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 December 1901

The Districts of Queensland (15). BUNDABERG lies north of Brisbane, by rail 221 miles, on the south bank of the Burnett River, some 10 miles from its mouth, and is noted for being the centre of one of the most fertile districts of the State, and one of the most progressive towns in Queensland. The chief product is sugar cane, of which enormous quantities are grown annuaJly-the district with its sister sugar centre, the Isis, producing a great proportion of the sugar manufactured in Queensland. The lands on the Upper Burnett waters wen^occupied in the late forties and early fifties by squatters from the Darling Downs and the Logan districts, and, curious though it may seem, the lower portion of the river did not receive any attention until 1863, when Mr. Alex. Walker sent drovers with a mob of cattle, in search of unoccupied country toward the mouth of the river from Gayndah. The station Bingera wa5 then formed at a point of the river where the fresh water commences. A native dugout ...

MARMALADE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 December 1901

MARMALADE. While there is one general method lor mak ing marmalade, there are variations in the quantity of water added, the proportion of sugar, and the time given to boiling; also whether the process occupies one day, two, or three. The oranges themselves vary so much in the quantity of juice they contain that with exactly the same relative quantities the result may be very different. The following tried recipes have always been found satisfactory: Cut up into thin strips three pounds of oranges, removing the pips, and boiling them\ separately in a pint of water. Some people ^ reject the inside white of the peel, but it is not found objectionable, and it boils perfectly clear. Allow three pints of water to each pound of fruit, and let it stand for twenty-four hours. Next day boil till the chips are tender. To each pound erf fruit add one and a-half pounds of sugar, and boil till the liquid jellies. Or, to every orange allow a pint of water. After cutting let the strips stand in th...

Home Notes. HOW TO TEACH A CHILD TO SWIM. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 December 1901

I - - I Hoipe Notes HOW TO TEACH A CHILD TO SWIM. It seems strange that out of the many thou sands of children that crowd; our popular seaside resorts during the summer months so few have been taught the art of swimming. Yet it is one of the most useful as well as one of the most beautifying of all athletic accomplishments. In order to teach a young child to swim you must first of all encourage it io have absolute confidence in itself. Convince a child that there is no danger, and then, with patience and a very little encouragement, he (or she, as the case may be) can be taught swimming in half-a-dozen lessons. The surest way to inspire confidence is to make the young beginner familiar with the wonderfully buoyant power of water. In order that the learner may acquire this knowledge she should- be led into the water un til it almost reaches her shoulders, and then told to turn round with her face to the shore. An egg should than be dropped in the water, and the child toldi to dive do...

CAIRNS-HERBERTON RAILWAY LINE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 December 1901

CAIRNS-HERBERTON RAILWAY LINE. TO a visitor from any part of the world a journey to this part of -Queensland would scarce be complete unless a trip were taken along the railway line running between Cairns and Chil lagoel and especially the section traversing the sides of pic turesque Barron Gorge and by. the famous Falls of the Barron River. After the first three miles of sandy country, the line passes through a portion of the rich agricultural land adjacent to the Barron River; and fields of rice, and maize, are seen as Strathford is passed. At Redlynch a large sawmill is seen, working on the enormous logs of Lake Eacham. timber for which the adjacent scrubs are famous. The Government State Nursery is to the right at Kuranda and is in every way worthy of a visit. The Nursery contains a splendid collection of North Queens land and New Guinea growths, as well as economical plants and orchids from various parts of the globe. Here the line enters the vast scrub, which, extending for hu...
