THE GLADSTONE GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 December 1901

THE GLADSTONE GOLDFIELDS. f/ ALLIOPE Goldfield is about 15 miles S.W. of Gladstone, on the creeks that run down from the north and south, sides | of the Boyne Range, The field was discovered by a Mr. ^ Brennan, who picked up a three ounce nugget Sheep ^ Station^ Hill, in 1863, and attracted a large population, who obtained' a great quantity of alluvial gold in the tributaries of the Boyne River. A considerable population is centred on the field, the majority being the families of miners from the neighbouring goldfields. Mr. W. H. Rands, in his able report on this audi the adjacent fields, gives some very interesting particulars relating to their mineral wealth and' geological formation. About 26 miles N.W. from- Calliope is Sneaker's Creek, where among the broken scrub-covered ranges that come down from Mount Larcombe several reefs have been opened up, which for a time gave satisfactory returns. LANGMORN Goldfield on the waters of Raglan Creek, is about 14 miles north: of the former...

The Picturesque Sanitorium of Northern Queensland. CAIRNS DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 December 1901

(fofie ^lGtwresGjwe §<amt0ri«ai of Rortfiexia (5 GKIRNS DISTRICT. ORTH from Brisbane almost 1,000 miles, there lies one of & the most picturesque regions of the continent of Australia. This area includes the watershed of the Russell, Mulgrave and Barron rivers, and their numerous tributaries, on the eastern side of the Main Coast Range, with the Port, Cairns, ^ lying on Trinity Bay, near the mouth of the Barron River. The territory herein included totals upwards of 2,500 square miles, broken by numerous ranges smaller than the coast range, jungle covered in great part, with here and there belts of open forest or level country. The Russell River finds its head waters between the Bartle-Frere and Bellenden-Ker ranges, its waters being used in their course for the hydraulic sluicing of the auriferous ridges which rise, covered with dense scrub, upon each side of the main stream and its tributaries-viz., Jampoo, Warrambar, Coopooroo and V » - I ' . -4 v w »4 On the Up...

THE BARRON RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 December 1901

THE BARRON RIVER. rOR rugged picturesqueness the Barron River stands unequalled among the coastal rivers of Queensland. From the head waters, in among the spurs of the coast range, at the back of Herberton, right to the mouth of the river in Trinity Harbour, wild grandeur marks, almost every mile. Until the river reaches the rich lands of the Atherton Scrub, the main stream is hard to define, many creeks being of equal size; but beyond here the river is of a good size, and, when the torrential rains of February come down, the waters swirl along between the high scrulMrorvereid banks, and by the rich pockets of farm land, with a mighty roar. The Atherton Scrub is both in its botanical and zoological features entirely different to the famous valley which flanks the river near the latter's confluence with the sea. Whereas the Barron Valley is purely tropical and Australian in its vegetation, at Atherton the scrub is essentially Asiatic. This scrub is a continuation of a tongue of land ...

Diseases of the Pig and their Practical Treatment. COUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 December 1901

Diseases of the Pig and their Practical Treatment. COUGH. This is caused by same irriation to the air passages, and may be the result of simple cold. It accompanies some special diseases, or it may be (and is more frequently than many people are aware) caused by the presence of worms^ in the air tubes, similar to those which cause "husk" in calves and lambs. Treatment must depend upon the cause of the cough, as a cough is not a disease in itself, but is the evidence of disease or some un natural condition of some part or parts of the air passages.

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

Typical Angora Goats. Angora Goats. Many people have been struck by the large number of goats to be seen in the townships along the Central Railway line, and at Dalby and Roma, and of late we have been besieged with enquiries as to whether grade Angoras could not be introduced in the place of these flocks. Without much care or attention An goras give a better mutton, and yield a mohair which finds a very ready sale indeed. The mountainous areas of Queensland, the rough country which is not suitable for other stock, and especially the arid western lands, would be very suitable for raising An goras. The old saying. ' A goat will live where a sheep will starve,' is very true. The goat is very hardy, a rough feeder, and the Angora is in no way inferior in constitution or in the capacity to live upon hard fare than the common types." On timber country overgrown more or less with gum and other members of the eucalyptus tribe, it would take 3 acres to carry a sheep and grow a fleece, the r...

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

DEBILITY. This is caused either by some wasting dis ease, a condition of the digestive apparatus, which partially prevents the assimilation by the system of a portion of the nutritious part of the food, or (what is rather common, especially in young pigs) the presence of worms in the stomach or bowels. Treatment.-Remove the cause when pos sible, and give tonics, such as cod liver oil and preparations of iron in the food.

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

DIPHTHERIA. This is a contagious and very fatal disease, which occasionally attacks pigs, young animals being more susceptible to it than old ones. It is in all probability generally communicated to pigs by these animals obtaining access to drain ings or solids, containing the diphtheretic virus or poison (while writing this I have had per sonal experience of an outbreak of diphtheria in pigs, on two separate premises some^ distance apart, in a locality where this disease has been rife to a greater or less extent for two or three years among human beings and fowls). Symptoms-l^e affected animal is seen to be very* dull,refusesfc<^,^ismd the^thi^a^ be gins to swell. As the diea^ jM^tesses tiiese^ symptoms become more 4 marked, aiid death usually takes-place in from six hours to thi^e days after the first indication of illness are visible. Treatment.-This should consist of the separation of the diseased from the healthy pigs, the free use of disinfectants, in and around the...

DIARRHOEA, COMMONLY CALLED SCOUR, [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 December 1901

DIARRHOEA, COMMONLY CALLED SCOUR, is the evacuation of faeces (dung) in a more or less liquid state, and is caused by some irritation to the bowls. It is brought on in some instances by improper food, and is a prominent feature in several diseases. Per sistent diarrhoea in young pigs, that are ap parently suffering from no actual disease, is often indicative of the presence of worms in the bowels. Treatment should consist chiefly of remov ing the cause of the trouble, because when this is done the diarrhoea will cease of its own accord. When improper food is the exciting cause, change the diet.

The average width of the har bour is estimated at about haJf-a-mile, with a depth of from 30 feet to 60 feet, at low water. One is struck with the splendid view laid out before him.

"It all Came About in This Way." [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 January 1902

" It all Came About in This Way." BY. MRS. W. T. HARRINGTON. (Author of " Marguerite Cameron," etc.) (Copyright.) It was the month of October, and we were in a great state of excitement; for our uncle. George Edser-our mother s brother-had just arrived fom England, intending to spend a long holiday in Queensland. With ample goods, and being a bachelor, we anticipated a real merry time. We were a large family, us Holroyds, numbering nine, four girls and five boys. Our father was dead, and our gentle mother had to use a great deal of ingenuity to make both ends meet. Still, the boys were in good situa tions, and we were comfortable. After Uncle George had "looked about him a bit," he was suddenly struck with the desire to visit New Caledonia. "Now girls and boys," said he, addressing us, " get yourselves prepared, and we will take a trip to New Caledonia, getting there in time to spend Christmas " First of all we capered about like a lot of aboriginals dancing a war dance. But present...
