An Ovesight. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 23 May 1891
Ait Oversight. THE Charters Towers community should feel flattered, for it is evident that tlie Government, or more properly speaking, tlie heads of the department that rules the distribu tion and location of -Police Magis trates, consider it so orderly that there is no necessity for a P.M. here, and that what little disturbance may happen among ourselv es can be easily set right by the local unpaid justices. We appreciate the compliment, and acknowledge that it is a well deserved one, because there is not a more orderly town, for its size, in the whole of the continent of Australia than Charters Towers. The mainstay of the town and district, that is, the !' miners, have before now shown that they will not suffer amy attempt at rowdyism, and we do not think there | will even be any necessity here for | the swearing in of special constables. But there is something more wanted than that, and that is, some one to administer the law and be Chief Magistrate. The Grove 1*11 ment have appa...
The Military, Police and Unionists at Torrens' Creek. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 23 May 1891
Police Creek. To&BEXS Creek is not quite the sort of which & person would go to spend a well-eaiiied hoiidaj, as it contains little fe attract, aod very to repel visitors. The population consists, for the most part, of railway officials and their families. There are two hotels, and a store and butcher's shop combined, and where those got sufficient busi ness from to enable them to make even a meagre living before the for mation of the unionist camp, and subsequent arriral of the military and police, seems a mystery to the casual observer. Whoever may hare reason to de plore the unfortunate condition of affairs which has brought those to Torrens Creek, I feel sure the busi ness people may have cause for re joicing and rejoice accordingly, and if they can help to prolong it, rest assured their best efforts will be called forth with that view. The military, numbering 22 all told, under Captain Beat He, are1 camped in goods7 waggons, lent by the Railway Department, and a...
With the Defence Force at Hughende[?] [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 23 May 1891
Willi the defence Force at Hogliendeit. Tira: town of Hughenden lias been rather lively lately, owing to the influx of racing men from the Towers and elsewhere, and to day and to-morrow are gazetted as public liolidays. One half of the troops in camp have had permission to visit the races. The other half -will enjoy the like privilege to morrow. Sergeant-major Wort has been ordered to proceed to Charters Towers on Saturday, and jrill conduct a special parade of the Defence JTorce there. [Escorts and: patrols have been formed from the B Company, and they are getting plenty .f work. Five men and an officer went out this moraine, their destination not being known. from, the rumors of men travelling this way, it seems unlikely that the Defence Force will leave this district. Indeed their" stay will be ended only by the end of the strike, which possibly may last yet for a long tame. The shearers made a demonstra tion this morning in force ; 260 horse men and upwards of 100 footmen join i...

Wiutou Wires. ] WiNTcar, May 15. ] lieutenant Edwards arrived last; night after patrolling Yindex, Jessamine, Bladens burg, and tlie surrounding districts. Tliey experienced a rougli trip, and the men re turned knocked up. They obtained remounts dating the trip, amongst which yfere many buck-jumpers. Tilings are very unsettled. Wibton, May 18. Major Moiiiee, with an escort of Towns ville Infantry, and also a patrol under the command of lient. Edwards, arrived last night. The unionists are on the move in small members, ostensibly to oust blacklegs. The patrols are following under Lieut. Wilson and Sergeant-Major Foster. The union camp is quiet. A large body of men are there awaiting developments. It is expected that Win toil will be the centre of operations.
Suggestions for Economising. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 23 May 1891
I Saggcstioiis for jEconowitsing. I TBY E.M.1 EVERY unit of the population is j interested in securing the adjustment : of the colony's finances, and the more frequently the public's views axe ex- 1 pressed in the Press, the more certain i will appear some good plan for arriving at desirable results. The Civil Service Board are evidently decreasing the staff in many depart ments, and the aggregate of the re duction of salaries in that direction will materially diminish the expendi ture. It is said that the abolition or suspension of payment to members of Parliament is contemplated-a most wise measure-and a more popular movement could not be suggested. Public works being in suspen sion, conscientious members of Parliament would comprehend and consent to gratuitous services until the financial position of the colony warranted the present large expense of governing. In order to equalise matters, ministers might well reduce emoluments extended to them to £800 each per annum, and the fre...
Not Wanting in Cheek. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 23 May 1891
Mot Wautiug in Clieefe, ? Foe cool impudence and brazen effrontery, Mr. Crattfobd, assistant general secretary of the Australian; Labor Federation, will take a lot of beating. With the utmost coolness he proposes that the Premier should introduce a " Labor " Bill that would allow employees to leave work when they liked without notice, and. in the second part proposes that the wages earned but unpaid should be the absolate property, and inalienable by any agreement, of the earner to whom they are due." In order to make the proposals better understood by our readers, we quote the whole of the letter written by Mr. CRAWFORD to Sir S. W. GRIFFITH, which is as follows; : -" Sir, I am instructed i>y the General Executive of the. A.L.F. to state that in its opinion the settlement of * freedom of contract,' as the term is now defined by the Victorian pas toralists, who eonttol Queensland, would be very much assisted if the Government would summon Parliament together, so as to secure the ...
THE COMPOSITION OF BUTTEK-. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 23 May 1891
THE COMPOSITION OF BUTTEK-. THIS sueject was recently dealt with before one of the scientific societies by Dr. F. Yietli. Without going into analytical particulars, it may be of interest to note the gist of what Dr. Tieth said. What we want to buy in butter, he pointed out, is natural fat, and the presence of water reduces the proper percentage of fat, whilst the buttermilk im pairs its keeping powers. The proper per centage of water in good butter should not vary beyond the limits of ten and fifteen. During the past three years nearly three hundred different samples of butter have been examined by Dr. Vieth. He found the samples of French butter all remarkable for their uniformity of composition, which is explained by the fact that in Normandy large packing establishments exist which are supplied with freshly churned butter from a number of dailies, and which make it up for the London market by blending and working all together. *English made bntter was found to have had the water ...
THE KITCHEN GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 23 May 1891
THE KITCHEN GARDEN. THE cold weather daring the last few nights lias checked the growth of young crops, «i&lt;i ab&lt;> the germination of seeds. Cabbage, cauliflower, and turnips, mil, as a wife, appear over-ground in a week after the seed .is sown, when the weather is mild and the ground warm, but under the present con ditions it will require fully doable that time before they come up, and their progress will also be less rapid afterwards; hence the advantage of eaiiy autumn sowing when at all possible. All vacant ground should be dug up as fast as possible, more particularly soil of a heavy or retentive description. When exposed to tbe atmosphere a couple of weeks it will mellow down into a fine mould and may then easily be sown. Clear off all exhausted crops of tomatoes and kidney beans and manure the ground for a successive crop. Late crops of tomatoes should be turned oytr in such a manner as to expose the fruit to tbe sun, which will assist the ripening pro...
WHY LEAVES CHANGE COLOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 23 May 1891
WBY LEAVES Off IK GE COLOR, The green matter in the tissue of the leaf is composed of two colore-red and blue. WJiea the eap ceases to flow in autumn, and the natural growth, of the trees is stopped, oxidation of the tissues takes place. Under certain conditions the green of the leaf &lt;jhanges to red, under different conditions it fakes on a yellow or dif ference in color is doe to the^raejytijee in combinations of the original cow^^beats of the tissue, and to the rarrjing OOT| " of climate, exposure, and soiL. The bcvera! things about leaves that even men seighte cannot explain j for instance, one of two trees of the same species growing side by side in the game soil should take on a bright xed color in the fall sad the other a pale yellow, or why one branch of a tree will turn a beautiful crimson- and Hie one just above or below it turn a dull brown.
THE SLEEP OF BERDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 23 May 1891
3 HE SLEEP OP BERDS. MAST birds when resting, whether upon a perch or on the ground, draw up one leg close to the body amongst tne down and feathers, and place their head under their wing, both positions apparently being taken for pur poses of warmth. It looks an impossible position to be safe when the bird is resting with one leg only upon a perch not thicker than one's finger. It is, however, all made easy and safe to the bird by an admiral piece of -internal mechanism. Connected with the thigh-bone and leg a set- of muscles run. down to th£ very extremity of the toes, so contrived and placedthat when, by pressure downwards, the limb trends, these fine muscles are pulled in, and, therefore, contract the toes, thus Tuakiiig them^grasp more firmly whatever the . bird is resting uppn.

' I'll do it!' he repeated to himsplf a£ he walked along. * I'll court my wife aB if she ] were a girl again, the way that fellow did in j that newspaper story. I expect it'll go pretty I tough,' he reflected, throwing away his cigar, j and wiping his mouth carefully as he approached his 'home.

Then he went on tip-toe up- 1 stairs, put on his be=t necktie, combed Ms hair carefully, and came softly down the stairs again. ' M...
