QUEENSLAND CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 14 February 1896
QUEENSLAND CATTLE. The Chief Inspector of Stock in Queensland has received a telegram from Inspector Evans at Mitchell, stating that Inspector Evans does not think the ticks will make headway in the Barcaldine and Longreach districts on account of the number of ants which eat the ticks . and their ova. Mr. Gordon thinks that the reason the ticks have not established themselves on the Upper Georgina, in the Gregory district, is the fact of the ants being so plentiful there. With re gard to cotton seed oil, which is the great American, dipping medium, Mr. Gordon finds that there ia a plentiful supply of the oil in Sydney. Several equatters have written to Mr. Gordon stating tbafc they would be very glad to use the oil if they knew where to procure it.

THE HEAT WAVE. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 14 February 1896
THE HEAT WAVE. We had thought that the heat in Bourke (eays the local Herald) during the past month was amply sufficient to appease the appetite of the most voracious Salamander, but the following extract from a letter received from an esteemed - correspondent at El Dorado, near Louth, is certainly an eye opener on the matter of temperature. Our friend says: — 'I was locking at your record of the heat registered in Bourke, and I admit it is very warm; but we can beat you here. 1 have two tested glasses under the ve randah, and have registered 124, 125, and 126deg. On Wednesday, 22nd, the mer cury went up to 130deg at a quarter to 2 in the afternoon, and remained there 20 minutes. At no time duriDg the night did it fall below 98deg. I guess we head the poll. I have lived nearly all my life in the hottest' parts of New South Wales and Queensland, but never knew such heat as this before, and hope never to feel it. again.' We emphatically echo our correspondent's hope.

THE GOOLGARDIE MINES. Not only is the traffic to the Coolgardie goldfieids attracting minors and others from parts of Australia hundreds of miles distant, and from Tasmania aad New Zealand, but the ' boom' has reached the United States, whence there arrived by the American mail steamer Alameda a number of mining speculators and prac tical Californian miners. One of the former, upon arrival of the Alameda, s id that there are fully 20 syndicates formed in San Francisco alone to take up auri ferous country in Western Australia up to l,000,000dol., provided a fair test be . , ' given.. AH the machinery necessary to work a great area of country is included in the business of these syndicaes, and ' - , if Coolgardie or Kalgoorlie can supply the kiod of reefing resources the cable news has led these Americans to believe . . oxist, there will bo a considerable influx of American money into that country.
