MESSRS. HARRINGTON AND CO., LTD., Queen Street. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 January 1902

MESSRS. HARRINGTON AND CO., LTD., Queen Street. Passing from childhood into a more com prehensive age is but the time to change our toys, rather than dispense with them as most people imagine; for whatever our hobby, such is our toy 1 or, in a word-we lay aside the simple toy giving simple amusement, to take up a toy giving intelligent recreation, interest and pleasure combined. If asked to name our ideal toy, having all those qualities, we would unhesitatingly answer " A Camera," as it can be made the means of furnishing more real pleasure to its possessor than can be tound in any other field of out-door sports ; at the same time it cultivates the finer senses and habit of observation. It does not depend on the element of hardihood for its enjoyment, but will furnish pleasure for the weak or strong, young or old, just as well as for the athlete, which cannot be said of any other field sport; furthermore, it develops a keen eye for the artistic in nature which truly helps us to enjo...

MILK VALUING. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 January 1902

MILK VALUING. Good milk, when correctly tested, may show 4 per cent, of butter fat-that is, every 100 lb. weight of milk contains 4 lbs. of fat. But though that may be the case, it does not take 25 lbs. of milk to make 1 lb. of butter, because of the addition of salt and water in the making up. Ten or 12 per cent, of water is usually allowed in butter without it being subjected to suspicion as being adulterated; thus the per centage of water, together with 1 oz. of salt, will considerably reduce the quantity of milk re quired. If butter consisted of nothing but pure butter fat, then 25 lbs. of 4 per cent, milk would go to make 1 lb. of butter, but in prac tice about 22 lbs. of such milk will be sufficient to each pound of butter. We have received a number of inquiries about bitter milk, the causes of which are often quite obscure. There are se veral forms of germs which produce it, and it is also caused at times by some herb or weed in the feed. When bitter milk occurs and the cause...

MINING The Minerals and Precious Stones of Queensland—Continued. MOUNT PERRY. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 January 1902

The Minerals and Precious Stones of Queensland-Continued. BY WM. LEES MOUNT PERRY. WEST of Bundaberg, 67 miles by rail, lies the rich metalliferous district of Mount Perry. Opened in the 60s by the discovery of a rich outcrop of copper, near the present railway station, it came rapidly to the front as one of the foremost copper producing centres of Australia, for in addition to tne big mine, other copper and argentiferous outcrops were opened up and prosperity cen tred around the locality. Hotels, stores, churches, etc., rapidly multi plied and the place boomed. The ebb of the tide came when the price of copper declined, until the Old Copper Smelting Works, Mount Perry. | nett returns became too small to pay, Iand for many years Mount Perry f languished. Within the last few I months, owing to the opening up of | the old mine and work commencing at the smelters, the township has taken on a new lease of life, and a distinct revival has taken place all round. Eleven miles from Mount Pe...

MACKAY RAILWAY LINE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 January 1902

MACKAY RAILWAY LINE. Running westward to Mirani and Eton is a railway line some 22 miles in length. Just outside the town the line passes the Show grounds, and a mile further on the Racecourse Central Mill. This mill, one of those established under the Sugar Guarantee Act, is an instance of the busy life of this sugar district. The tram-lines with their many loaded cane trucks, the great crushing wheels of the mill slowly consuming the long sticks of cane from the moving carrier, and the life and bustle about the mill, form a scene of considerable interest to the onlooker. The railway line from here runs parallel with the Nebo road past successive canefields; two miles beyond is the Racecourse Mill; at the end of a long lane between the cane fields is seen the old mill of Te Kowai. Again another two miles, and on our left, through pretty shrubs and waving bamboos, we dis tinguish the Alexandra Sugar Mill, where 35 years ago the first cane of the district was grown by Mr. John Spille...

REMOUNTS FOR ARMY PURPOSES. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 January 1902

REMOUNTS FOR ARMY PURPOSES. tt i.i i _ C J.L A i-U ~ Had there been no war in South Africa, the subject of breeding cavalry and transport horses would not have been so much discussed as it has been during the last year or two. But it is well that circumstances have arisen which will have the effect of causing general interest in the subject of how best to keep the British Army supplied with horses of a first-class type. It is, further, a matter of policy, and desirable for obvious reasons, that the horse supply should be drawn from countries within the scope of the British Empire. It is rather a reflection on the extent of our resources that thousands of horses are bought in Hungary and other foreign places by the War Office agents when they should all be available in Australia alone. No country is more favourable, perh\os, for raisinq horses successfully than Australia, where, for a hardy type, remarkable for wear and tear, legs and feet and good constitution, also suitability to e...

SUGAR INDUSTRY [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 January 1902

SUGAR was first grown experimentally in the Mackay district by Mr. T. B. Fitzgerald, then engaged in surveying the township. It was grown in his garden, which was situated at the corner of North and Gregory streets. Having com pleted his survey, Mr. Fitzgerald decided to remain, and took up some land on what is now known as the Meadowlands Estate. There he commenced the cultivation of cane seriously, and was shortly afterwards joined by Mr. J. E. Davidson, one of a monied syndicate looking for land. Mr. Davidson had previously engaged in growing sugar in the Cardwell district, but without much success. The cane in Mackay grew so vigorously, and the prospects of a large industry became so pronounced, that in 1872 the Alexandra, the first mill in the district, was erected. Shortly after Mr. Davidson's arrival Mr. John Spiller, who had been connected with sugar growing in Java, arrived, and brought with him a few plants of Black Java, with which he commenced operations on the Pioneer, ...
