SUGAR CULTIVATION IN QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 20 January 1870

SUGAB CULTIVATION IN QUEENSLAND. At o meeting of the Wide Bay Farmer's Association, Mr. Hill, of Searva, contributed the following essay upon cane cultivation upon the Mary Hiver :— There are tliree leading varieties of cane cultivated iu this district— the Bourbon, tlie Otaheitau or Yellow, and the Ribbon. I will confine my attention to the two former. The Bourbon grows faster and larger than the yellow, and from the first trasliiug to the final acres of Bourbon can be trashed and cut quicker than one acre of yellow. The latter carries n very broad overhanging leaf, with sharp sickle edges, and there arc certainly many points iu its favour ; it is seldom known to blow down in gales of wind that have covered the ground with Bourbon caucs. I have never seeu a yellow cane disturbed. It is not affected by that disease to which llourbou plant eases are so liable, the twisting and tieing up of the top leaves, giving them a miserable appearance, mid (-topping their growth in the right dir...

A Remarkable Case. A MAN BEAST. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 20 January 1870

A Remarkable Case. A MAN BEAST. The Southhold Poor-house is a weather-beaten frame building, untainted, and in parts unshuiglea, situate at the end of a long lane which is bordered by stunted oaks and underbrush, and near a creek that breeds gnats and all lands of inquisitive insects, to the immense dis comfort of visitors. The Southhold Poor-house, not witUstaadhiK its inferior looks, is ambitious of becommp an Insane Asylum, and, in fact, mokes pretensions that way already. Though established as a refuge for the indigent and vagrant of the township, there are more lunatics sheltered there than poor folks. I had heard that a man who shows a strange aversion for clothing had been a tenant of the house for nine years, and that the treatment he received there was reprehensively neglectful It was re ported that he was kept in an outbuilding irough.thc severe winter, unattended and unclothed ; that he was left in this distressful situation year in and ?ear out, never seeing anyone save ...
