Australian Natural History. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 April 1902

Australian Natural History. Altogether too little is known of the marvels that surround as in Australian Natural Science, and this fact is as true and inconvertable as it is regrettable. Students of zoology from other countries are aware of this fact; and we our selves are unwillingly compelled to admit it. This want of interest or love of our. highly interesting zoology is little less than a national calamity; zoology is emphatically a study which is at once elevating, ennobling, and sublime. It is the study to which the noblest and brightest of human intellects havei from time immemorial been attracted. How humiliating it is to find that even Japanese man o'-war's men who visited this country quite recently, knew far more about, and took far greater interest in our zoology than the cultured ladies and gentlemen by whom they were entertained! Yet Australian travellers from Japan talk glibly about the beautiful fauna of that country. Zoology in Australia, as I cannot too frequently ...

Deepening and Stirring of Soils. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 May 1902

Deepening and Stirring of Soils* All the operations resorted to for the purpose of deepening the soil tend to loosen the bard earth below the reaoh of the ordinary plough and to facilitate the escape of water from the surface; they promote the circulation of air and afford a more extended range for the roots of the plants, in this way enabling the latter to obtain additional nourishment. In addition to this, they secure the crop against drought by enabling the roots of the plants to penetrate into the region of perpetual moisture. Subsoiling is one of the operations carried out with the object of effecting its purpose. The main purpose of subsoiling is ti deepen the soil and loosen the subsoil. This follows from opening the subsoil to the ameliorating Influence of the elements, and the beneficial result is due to the accumulation of vegetable matter below the ordinary range of the soil by the rooks penetrating more deeply and being left to decay in tLe strata where they grew. The su...

Bush-house and its Construction. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 May 1902

Bush-house and its Construction. BY B. WHLLTUS, NUBSBBYMAN, ASCOT. The successful cultivation of choice plants depends largely apon the proper construction of a bush-house. In the first place, so little is understood about the cultivation of ptants, and so tittle thought of their constitutions, that all classes of bush-houses are built just for appearance sake, and not for the proper culti vation of plants. It is a common practice to see bush-houses built with open lattice-work, and the owners of such inquiring for informa tion as to the cause of his plants dying off, etc. There is nothing so injurious to the proper cultivation of a plant than a constant draught caused when grown in lattice-work bush houses. 8uch draught causes the plants to become dry too quickly, hcnce the sudden collapse of many plants during the hot, dry winds during the summer months, and the cold draughts in winter. To grow plants successfully, all bush houses should be built with airtight sides if built in th...

Answers to Correspondents. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 May 1902

Answers to Correspondents. J.K.C., Oiiftou.-The beat method for con serving manure in dry seasons is the simple expedient of excavating a pit some eight feet deep ; it will be found that it is not necessary to apply water into the excavation, as the pit itself so protects the manure that sufficient moisture is maintained throughout the, dry season. The pit should be well sloped at the ends, as little difficulty will then be experienced in carting the manure in or out. A pit well filled in the winter from the stable3 and cow yards will supply during the Autumn, large quantities of thoroughly rotted manure. This method is practised largely by farmers in the dry districts of the Lower Murray. J.L P., Maryborough.-The best time for planting passion fruit in Southern Queensland, on the coast, is in September; in North Queensland in March. To save the seed, take out; the pulp of several fruits, preds it lightly so as not to injure the Beed. This will remove a large amount of the moisture ...

Two particularly pretty designs Are shown on this page. The first may be -either embroidered, painted or made with narrow ribbon, according to the uses to which It is to be put.

Opening for Settlement in the New Hebrides. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 May 1902

Opening for Settlement in the New Hebrides We are in receipt from Messrs. Burns, Philp and Go. of a pamphlet on the subject of the advantages accruing for settlement in the New Hebrides, a subject which is creating not a little interest in the southern states of the Commonwealth. The great fertility of the islands is referred to and their commercial value to Australia fully explained. The Aus tralasian New Hebrides Go. acquired extensive traots of land in the most favourable portion of the group, establishing steam intercourse with Sydney. This company has done much to counteract the French influence which at one time was so prominent and have aided materially in the civilising of the group. Having lost some £25,000, however, in the venture they were compelled to go into liquida tion in 1897 and fears were entertained that the islands would pass out of British control. It was then, however, that Messrs. Burns, Philp and Co., Ltd., stepped into the breaoh and in their usual enterpris...

Notes of the Month. The Darling Downs Lands. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 May 1902

Notes of the Month. The Darling Downs Lands. The opening of the lands known as Goom burra, near Allora, and Mt. Bussell, 12 miles from Pittsworth, have been the cause of con siderable excitement upon the Downs. These lands were repurchased from their owners enbloc by the Queensland Government some time ago and out up into farms ranging from 150 to 600 or more acres. The results have been phenomenal; every lot has been pur abased, and numbers of aspiring settlers have had to depart unsatisfied. Goomburra totalled 12,989 acres, divided into 46 farms, and valued at £42,780. Mt. Russell, 42,972 acres, divided into 105 farms, and valued at £109,185. On the 27th instant the famous Gowrie Estate, near Toowoomba, will be thrown open nnder the same terms as the above. This estate totals 42,049 acres, divided into 208 forms, and is valued at £184,755. In addition to these a large amount of land has changed hands through the various agents, Messrs. Scholefield and Godeall, Toowoomba and Pittsw...

Gympie Horticultural Society. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 May 1902

Gympie Horticultural 8ociety. The Gympie Horticultural Society's Ghrysan themum Show was opened on May 2nd, and proved to be moat successful, the continued dry weather notwithstanding. Mr. Jas. S. Bartholomew, of Maryborough, secured the championship prize for best bloom, and, in oonjunction with Mrs. J. M. Stafford, first prize for the best district exhibit of 36 distinct blooms. Mr. Bartholomew thus secures the blue ribbon of the show. Amongst his com petitors was Dr. Byan, who took the champion ship prizes in Brisbane the previous week. The show of chrysanthemums was cerbainly the finest ever seen on Gympie, both as regards quantity and quality. Included in the stands were a number of varieties new to Gympie and to Queensland, showing that the fanciers of the " Autumn Queen " of flowers are determined to keep pace in procuring the most recent novelties. The district prize of £8 8s. for the best 86 distinct chrysanthemums was won by Maryborough with blooms selected from the garden...

Gambling at Agricultural Shows. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 May 1902

Gambling at Agricultural Shows. Now that what may be termed the " Show Season " is upon us, it would be as well for the different Agricultural Societies throughout the State to seriously consider the question of allowing the greater portion of their valuable space to be occupied by such jackalls of society as spielers, monte men, cheap Jacks, and otherB who deliberately rob their patrons oi a large proportion of the monies which would otherwise be spent at the stalls of the exhibi tors. > We can see no reason favouring the admission of these " gentry " into the grounds. Gambling is the most depraved and debased form in which men or women can spend their time. Who is to blame you say ? The people who patronise these spielers ? No, it is the Society that profits by letting stands to such as induce tbe gambling. What can be more humiliating than to stand by one of these gentry and watch the feverish and excited manner in which the men and boys back a number or a colour, nine ten ths...

The Wheat Harvest. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 May 1902

The Wheat Harvest By courtesy of the Registrar General we have been famished with the following figures relative to Wheat Farming in Queensland : The total yield last year was 1,692,222 bushels from an area of 96,951 acres sown, and though 9,719 aores were out for hay, the average yield was 19.40 bushels of wheat to the acre. The South Australian yield for 1901 is 5.66 bushels to jthe acre or less than one-third. The Queensland average for the previous year was a little over 15 bushels, which is about the average for the preceeding ten years. It may be pointed out that the area put under wheat last year was nearly ten thousand aores ahead of 1900; and the increase in the total yield comparing 1900 with 1901 has been half a million bushels. Naturally the importation of wheat bas fallen. Expressed in bushels the wheat censumption of Queens land last year was 3,512,462-a little less tban the preceding year-and nearly half of that was produced in the State itself. One important factor t...
