DECAY OF THE FRUIT BUSINESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 26 July 1892

DECAY OF THE FRUIT BUSINESS. THE Barcoo Independent of the 22nd instant says;-For years past a largo trade has existed in fruit between Rockhampton and tlu> western towns, but now it appears that the railway traffic department is determined to cast im pediments in the way of this traffic that must effectually wipe it out of existence. In the carriage of ripe fruit speed is the most essen tial requirement, and with every facility for quick transit great loss invariably results from the fruit decaying while on the journey. Most of the fruit consumed in the central district arrives from the south by steamer on Monday, and hitherto has been despatched west by the following day's mail train, generally reaching its destination the following Wednesday or Thursday. Now a regulation has been issued tlmt fruit must not be carried bj' the mail trains, but must be kept for the goods trains. Formerly, fruit arriving in Itockhampton by Monday s steamer would reach Blackall ou Wednesday morning...

STORIES TOLD Round the Came Fire A MODERN ROMEO. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 26 July 1892

WOMBS TOM THE Hon. Bob Softas, younger son of Viscount Mcwlcs, was one of those amatory young gentlemen who are uevcr happy unless they have some affaire <tu ceenr on hand. How many grandes passions he entertained and abandoned in the course of a year it would bo difficult to say; probably, on the average, about one a week. But his affaires were for the most part of a somewhat secret ^and stealthy kind, since he was peculiarly gifted ?with that pseudo-romantic spirit which re joices in having to carry on a flirtation under difficulties, and to exercise ingenious artifices for keeping tryst with the loved one. It may be explained that while ho had plenty of brass and could face verbal castiga tion as coolly as most, the Honorable Bob was no Spartan physically, and, therefore, he was careful to avoid liaisons which involved any serious encounter with an enraged father or brother-confining himself, as far as he could, to those young women who only had female relatives to loo...

VOLCANIC RUCTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 26 July 1892

VOLCANIC ItUCTIONS. IT is supposed that the number of volcanic eruptions which have taken place in various parts of the world are due to the withdrawal of large quantities of artesian water for surface operations in Queensland. Hitherto the supply of water has been sufficient to keep the sub terranean fires in check. As the water is fradually brought to the surface so will the anger from volcanic eruptions increase, until by the time Queensland is fertilised by the bountiful supplies drawn from the depths of the earth, there will be such an increase of the furnaces in the interior of the world that its speedy demise from internal combustion may be confidently predicted. Will Mr. Wragge please copy ?
