Some Economic Plants Growing at State Nursery Kamerunga. (No. 8.—BANANA.) [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 30 June 1897
I Some Economic Plants Grow l lng at BUta Buwery1 Kamerunga. BvE. COWLE v. (No. 8.-BANANA.) It will, perhaps, lo some of your readers seem strange that the banana has not formed the subject for an earlier article in this series, as it forms one of the most important items in our every day mercantile life. Perhaps, also, it may be said " What is there about the banana that wc do not eveiy one of us know î and " ot what is the use reading two columns' of rot. I am surprised at the editor filling up so much valuable space on such a subject, etc., etc." But I, who have known the banana from childhood, and in a way been associated with it ever since, do not by any means consider that the subject is yet mastered ; but as I have frequently re- marked " a banana is a banana to most people," no matter of what variety it may be. If it is yellow witli a few dark spots or even rotten at the end, it is all right ; it is usually gobbled up, arid the skin thrown no matter much where-often, however...
School of Arts Ball, Mareeba. (FROM A COREESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 30 June 1897
School of Arts Ball, Mareeba. (FROM A CORKKsroNUKXT.) Race-day in Mareeba was fittingly ter- minated by the "Grand Ball" held al night in the hall of the School of Arts, and in aid of the same institution. Once more success was the order of the day, or rather I should say night, for both financially and otherwise evciything turned out. well. Dancing com- menced punctually at 9. p.m., anil Air J. \V. Walton again acted in the capacity of M.C., and the varied programme, suitable to ali lovers of gay tcrpischore, once more verified thc Mareeba maxim, "Leave everything to Jack and it will come out alright." Mr A. H. Hort, in his well-known perfect style, pro- vided the necessary music ¡piano), and, it is almost needless to add, gave universal satisfaction. There were between thirty and forty couples present, and in the large hall al their disposal, comfort and no vexatious bumping helped to increase one's pleasure. Let me, in referring to the ladies themselves and their dresses, observe...

Conversation in loud tones is not exactly the correct thing in a place of worship St. John's Anglican Church was thc I seine of this continued nuisance on Sunday evening last. : I It may be a sure means of making i one's presence evident, bat it certainly denotes want of good taste and lack of consideration for other people, Thc customs of church-going people should not be ignore 1. Is our suggest:*,Î re' Saltwater Baths to be entertained in any way ? If three ladies were to form them- selves into an organising committee, they could easily bring the baths into existence. As a preliminary, these ladies should wait upon every business man in town and urge the desirability of providing a place for a salt-water dip. I Then if nothing resulted they should organise a concert'and dance and make a " won't-take-a-No" subscription.... A hundred pounds could bc raised easily in twelve months. .. - , AU it wants-is some active-lady to say to a suitable friend,-"I'm willing to tty this ;...

THE LAND COMMISSION AND CHINESE AGRICULTURE. [To TRI EDITOR "POST."J Sir,-Some years ago in a. communication to the Colonia! Secretary's department I ad Toeattd that acomrnisawn be appointed to enquire into the working of the Land Act. I commend the action of the Commiaaioners in plainly stating that the principal growers of produce tn the Cairns district are Chinamen, I was one of the few Barron Valley settlers that refused to lease land to the Chinese, and stuck to my resolution. Mark the result. It is a little over 8 years since one of them offered to clear my selection for five years use of it free, and afterwards £l per acre ; to-day I am no longer the owner: of freehold property but am camping in a tent, while other settlers are drawing an annual income from their Chinese tenants, and can afford to drive a boggy. ' In your issue of the 2nd inst., a well-known Barron Valley settler states that the Commissioners came to Atherton, "and there the examination began and ended." I ca...
