Joseph's Canal. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 March 1902

Joseph's Canal. There is a oanal in Egypt more than 4,000 years old. It was built by the Government under the direction of " Joseph, the brother of Benjamin, the son of Rachel and Jacob, the " son of Isaac, the son of Abram, the chosen of the Lord." It is known as the Bahr Joussuf. It waters the province of Fayoum, endowing it with fertility and supporting a large population ; for centuries it has been an important aid to commerce. It leaves the Nile at Aisut and runs along parallel with it 250 miles, until it gains an eminence as compared with the river bed which enables it to turn westward through a narrow pass, seventeen feet above the mean level of the river, and enter a district otherwise shut off from the fertilising floods on which all Egypt depends. Herodotus, Straho, and Pliny declare that the construction of this canal fur nished a channel of navigation and irrigation to an entire province, and moderated the olimate so as to make it habitable.

Potatoes. CLIMATE AND SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 March 1902

Potatoes. (By " MENTMOBE.") CLIMATE AND SOIL. Climate, soil; and the variety chosen foi growing, all bear, in a more or less marked degree, on the question of the most suitable time to choose - for commenc ing the planting of potatoes in different localities. The influence of each in the matter must receive due consideration, and ^cannot profitably be neglected. Climate-by far the most important consideration-so largely regulates the season that the work may well commence weeks earlier in certain favoured districts, and yet the potatoes be in no more, and probably less, danger of injury by frost or other adverse climatic conditions -than those planted considerably later -elsewhere. Late frosts coming when a good growth of top is attained are most harmful, in many instances necessitating .entirely fresh growth above ground, thus backwarding the time of ripening, and .giving no chance of reaping th» benefit .of an early market, and in tLe gene rality of cases considerably le^eiuns; th...

The Districts of Queensland (18). (Continued.) BOWEN AND DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 March 1902

The Districts of Queensland (18). ?^o-ssEi (Continued.) BOWEN AND DISTRICT. OWEN is situated on the northern shore of the inlet in Edge combe Bay, known as Port Denison, and is some 725 miles N.W. of Brisbane, in lat. 19° 59' S.; long. 148° 16' E. It is a seaport and municipal town (proclaimed on August 7th, 1863), embracing the police and electoral districts of Bowen, under a Mayor and five Councillors, with Money-Order Office, Savings Bank, and Telegraph Repeating Station. Regular steam communication is kept up with Brisbane, Rockhampton, Sydney, and other southern ports. The harbour was first discovered in the year 1859 by Captain Sinclair, who, with a small party, made his way northwards with a view to further settlement beyond Fort Curtis. This small party, consisting of Captain Sinclair-in command-and Messrs. James Gordon, of Townsville, and Benjamin Poole, made their way in the small schooner " Santa Barbara" along the reef dotted coast. The trip was fraught with danger, for,...

Aylesbury Ducks. F. MASON, HEMMANT. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 March 1902

Aylesbury Docks. , i MASON, HEMMANT. This breed of ducks is, without doubt, one of if not the most profitable that can be kept. Irrespective of its great delicacy as a table bird, it is well adapted for farmyards, and will thrive well under most circumstances. Its greatest merit is its early maturity. From Aylesbury, and the surrounding districts, enormous quantities are sent to the London market?, commencing in March and continuing through April and May. At the age of seven or eight weeks a pair of these ducks will weigh about 71b, and often fetch as mudi as one pound per pair, if brought to market early in in the year. In June, however, they are in perfection, weighing 101b to 121b the couple, and fetching seven shillings to eight shillings the pair. Many thousands of pounds are returned into tjie Aylesbury district every year for ducks. They are mostly reared by agricultural labourers and their wives, the local name for such being " duckers." But it must not be supposed that it i...

THE BURDEKIN DELTA. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 March 1902

THE BURDEKIN DELTA. HIS rich sugar-growing centre lies on the Burdekin River, some 45 miles south of Townsville. Geographically it is presumed to belong to Bowen, but commercially Townsville now claims its business, a railway line having been extended from the main Northern line to that district. The tramway, as it is termed, though to all intent and purpose a railway, leaves the main Northern Railway at Stewart's Greek, six miles from Townsville, and runs in a south-easterly direction for forty-four miles to the village of Ayr, situated about the centre of the Burdekin Delta, where large sugar areas are being cultivated. The tramway, constructed by the joint Divisional Boards of the district under the supervision of the Railway Department, was opened for public traffic at the beginning of April, 1900, and the receipts so far indicate that the enterprise will be a payable one. The Railway Department has charge of the traffic, using its own rolling stock, and keeping separate account...

AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY. THE SONG BIRDS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 March 1902

AUSTRALIAN NATURAL HISTORY. THE SONG BIRDS. The song birds of Australia are well de serving of attention. Fictions, however absurd, are long lived, and no fiction is more egre giously absurdand untenable than that which insisted that our birds were not songsters. Now, in truth and in fact, the world possesses no sweeter singers than many birds we can produce. Our Crp^r^ Unices XGyn*norieyus0 are famous for their flute-like music. To hear these modest-plumaged, lovable birds singing is to feel oneself drawn nearer to Paradise; not to have heard is unquestionably an intel lectual loss. I imagine that if I were trans ported to some desolate island-barren alike in bird/ fauna, and flora-and some dreary morning these birds were to burst into song, the island would, charmed into life by their paradisiacal melody^ immediately put forth, forests of eucalypti and myalls, banksiasr casuarinas, and waratahs, and assume an Aus tralian aspect. ' The scientific distinction of having the name of t...

A Change of Front. A TALE OF THE AMERICAN REBELLION. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 April 1902

A Change of Front. A TAIJ£ OF THE AMEBICAN REBELLION. BOM the windows shaft of light shot across the moor and oat into the dark ness. Like a magftet it drew the hnnted man toward it. Borne to him by an occasional blast of the catting wind, he could hear the distant baying of the hounds as they sought to pick up again the lost trail. The sound sent a shiver through him. He had taken to the ice-cold water of the brook to elude them, bat at any moment they might once more find the scent. For days Maurice Hetberington had wan dered among the hills within the lines of General Burgoyne, whither he had come in search of information regarding the dis position of the British troops. At first all had gone well. He had spent some hours among the redcoats, had picked ap much needed information for his general, and was on the way back to the camp of Gates when ho had been discovered. Luckily he had found time to fling himself on a horse and gallop away down the road, but the chance shot of a pic...

Stubble Cleaning and Autumn Cultivation. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 April 1902

Stubble Cleaning and Autumn Cultivation. After the corn fields have been cleared of their stooks and the produce has been threshed, Rifely secured for the winter, the op to date farmer will be turning his attention to the preparation of such of his stubble land as is not laid down with seeds for the next year's root crop. And here we may point out that the two great objects of tillage are the pulveri sation of the soil and the destruction of weeds, and these objects are greatly facilitated by stubble cleaning and autumn cultivation. The weeds are in their weakest condition immediately after the corn has been removed; hence the reason for attacking them at this time. If there be English couch grass or Bimilar weeds present the first thing the farmer should do is to give the surface of his field a thorough scarifying or grubbing so as to facilitate the removal of these weeds. Care should be taken not to out the roots, but rather to cut nnder them, and so to loosen their grip upon the ...

New Boses. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 April 1902

New Boses. BY A. WILLIAMS, GREEN HILL NUBSERY. Having in a previous paper dealt with raising new varieties of roses from seeds, and the suitability of our climate for the rose generally, I now propose to deal with new reses that have from time to time been intro duced during the last three years to our eolony, omitting those which have proved unsuitable or have been found deficient in merit. Forty years ago the most enthusiastic ad mirer of the rose would hardly have ventured to anticipate the enormous number of varieties tbat have sprung into existence, or yet again the immense improvement effected in the size, form, and colour of the flowers. Strange to .eay, however meritorious a variety may be when firet put into the market, there seems to be always something better appearing every few years; consequently many of the old favourites are continually disappearing from tbe ranks and sinking into oblivion; very few indeed have stood the test as being considered worthy of being placed...
