THE STRAND, TOWNSVILLE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 February 1902

THE STRAND, TOWNSVILLE. OR those who are moved by the fascination of the sea, there is no place in the world where the charm of the ocean is ever present so much as along the coast of Queensland, and at Townsville, but a stone's-throw from the busy main street, there is no more serene and peaceful a spot than the shore line that stretches from the breakwater northward to the appropriately named Kissing Point. This Strandi as it is termed, has a beautiful hard beach, where the waves incessantly beating leave at each tide the tribute of the storm from some ocean-beat reef or island lying off from the main land. A cool breeze is always here, and sitting upon one of the numerous fig-shaded benches which a municipal providence has erected, the day is never long. Magnetic Island lies right opposite, its scarred sides ever changing as the sun lights up its ridges or dark ravines and plays about the heavy foliage with which the island is covered. The roadstead between has always numerous sh...

The Error of Her Ways. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 March 1902

The Error of Her Ways. 7*HE affair began in the little Chambly Church near the syringa trees. It was a Sunday morning in early June, and the air was so slightly stirred bv the breath of the West that there was not * a ripple on the lake, that lay clear as a mirror in the sun, reflecting the glory of the green shores and the dark blue mountains in the distance. There was an unusually large congregation in the little church, accounted for by the: beauty of the day and the interest in the new clergyman, who had only the week before taken up his abode in the old red brick rec tory; and last, but not least, by the appear ance of pretty little Mrs. de Freyne, who, with her husband, had taken " The Wigwam " by the Rapids for the Summer months. , At least half-a-dozen lorgnettes had discerned her tall figure crossing the old parade ground, and she might have been drilled by the way she car ried herself. Mrs. de Freyne had been shown by the pompous verger into one of the high, old fashioned ...

The Orchard. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 March 1902

The Orchard. BY GEO. BKMIS, OXLEY. Too often the orchard is looked upon as a kind of waste ground, where the family wash ing festoons the unpruned trees, whose gnarled trunks are thickly covered with lichen-a hiding-place for innumerable insect pests. The only time when the very existence of the , trees is considered is when the poor apology for a crop is falling to the ground and is ripe for gathering. Frequently even then the fruit is so small and diseased that it is not worth the trouble of picking up, and the pigs are' turned in to grub up the scanty crop for themselves. Surely the ground could be put to some better use than to support these relics of a former generation, and the question as to the advisability of planting with new improved sorts capable of yielding a crop, not only worth harvesting, but of considerable pecuniary value, should be seriously con sidered. Where the orchard contains nothing but old diseased trees it would be inadvisable to make a fresh plantation on...

Field, Orchard & Garden. MARCH. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 March 1902

Field, Orchard & Garden. MARCH. By J AS. MITCHELL, Bowen Park. FLOWER GARDEN.-Every advantage should be taken of the first rain to bring the garden up to its proper standard of beauty. March is the busiest month in the year, and attention is requisite in every corner. The weeds will get a strong hold if not kept in con stant check. Keep the scythe and lawn-mower going; this work is best done in the morning while the grass is wet. Hedges, and Alternan thera bordering should be kept clipped, as they soon grow out of order. Do not clip the Alternanthera too late in the season; leave it fairly rough so that the extra foliage will protect the roots from frost during the winter months. Sow seeds of all the winter annuals THE NATIVE BEAB. during this month. If the early sowing, of seeds recommended last month has not been a success, try another sowing. Cinerarias should be up in a few days after planting; Carnations in two or three days; Pansies about a week; and Primulas from ten ...

ARBITRATION ACT IN NEW ZEALAND. A LESSON FOR QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 March 1902

ARBITRATION ACT IN NEW ZEALAND. A LESSON FOR QUEENSLAND. In Wellington, and in the other centres of the colony (says the New Zealand " Times") the boot manufacturers are shortening hands, and a large number of bootmakers are leaving for Sydney, to try their luck in the New South Wales capital, the cause of the exodus being on account of the operation of the labour laws, which have not only enabled the workmen to exact from the employers what the latter claim to be a greater amount of wages than can fairly be paid, but which have resulted in the imposition by Conciliation Boards and Arbi tration Courts of all sorts of rules and regula tions, which, in their incidence, practically give over the control of manufactories to the em ployees, and constitute the employer a mere wage-finder; while the Workers' Compensation and Employers' Liability Acts heap upon him worries and responsibilities often far more .onerous than those which would, under ordi nary circumstances, fairly attach to th...
