THE ABORIGINAL PROBLEM IN QUEENSLAND. HOW IT IS BEING DEALT WITH. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 May 1902

THE ABORIGINAL PROBLEM IN QUEENSLAND. HOW IT IS BEING DEALT WITH. HE condition of life under which the aboriginals of Queensland live, is a subject which from the earliest days of the colony has received considerable attention from men and women with humanitarian principles. From time to time efforts have been made to guide such remnants of the race to the better phases of civilisation, or, at least, to protect them from those evils in other races, by the adoption of which, the aboriginal race of this continent is being rapidly annihilated. The first records date as far back as 1838. Dr. Lang, in 1836, made application to the New South Wales Government for assistance towards establishing a German Presbyterian Mission to the aboriginals at Moreton Bay. After some demur the Govern ment promised a sum equal to what might be raised by private subscription. In Wm. Coote's " History of Queensland," it states that /"450 was granted by the Imperial Govern ment, and ^"150 became available un...

CHAPMAN & CO. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 May 1902

CHAPMAN & GO. Millinery in all the new shades and shapes is a special feature in Messrs. Chapman & Go.'r new winter shipments. A striking oreation is a toque of the new Coronation color, whioh resembles very inueh the old shade oi majenta. Another rioh design in toques is shown in brown and gold velvet, swathed in black and gold galon ; and yet another in cerise velvet with ecru insertion and white ospreys is even more striking. Some ridiculously cheap short, tight-fitting jackets, in cloth, similar to the Eton, are marked at 6s. 6d., and there is an inexpensive variety of cloth and tweed tailor costumes in various shades. Long sacque overcoats, reaching to the knees, are to be had in fawn, grey, red, and black, also very smart plaid golf capes.

JOHN HICKS, LTD. HOUSE FURNISHERS, GEORGE ST., BRISBANE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 May 1902

JOHN HICKS, LTD. HOUSE FURNISHERS, GEORGE ST., BRISBANE. As is u3ual at this season oi the year this firm are extremely busy, especially in the bedding and carpet famishing departments. With the advent of cold weather, people deem it expedient to have their floors carpeted, and .planners, cutters, sewers, etc., were," at the time of our visit, all extremely busy at work in this direction. Some of the designs we noticed were in exquisite taste, the floral patterns apparently having superseded the old geometrical patterns. Some of the linoleums also bore evidence of the same trend in public taste, the floral shadings having apparently ttsurpel those of the Tile and Tessellated pat terns that were previously so common. This 4irm also stock Venetian blinds, which are now coming prominently into use and are certainly more durable than the ordinary blind, giving plenty of shade with ventilation at the same time. Blankets are stooked in great varieties and in qualities and kinds to suit al...

DURUNDUR STOCK SALE. The sale of the Hereford stock at Durundar on the 22nd April last, by the Australian Estates and Mortgage Co., was highly success- ful, taking into consideration the present continuous drought. Tip-top prices were realised, and altogether some £12,000 worth of stock was cleared for the owners. There are still some 4,000 head of cattle on the station, and the Company are prepared to deal liberally with intending purchasers. The London Standard states that Mr. W. H. Willis, M.L A., N.S.

Table Decorations [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 June 1902

Table Decorations For a military dinner-table, suitable for wel .coming home our heroes from the war-those heroes we women of the Empire delight to honour. For this table, I need scarcely tell you, we must confine ourselves to three colours -red, white, and blue. For the centre-spread I would suggest a silk Union-Jack-square care lessly rucked on the tablecloth. In the middle of it place a floral cannon. For this you must -obtain a wire frame. Cover the frame neatly with moss, and then with rows of scarlet .geraniums, white geraniums, and blue lobelia, ?or any other small red, white, and blue flowers you may chance to have or fancy. If you pre fer it, you could have floral letters for a centre piece-the initials of your favourite general or of your own. particular hero that you are enter taining. Draw the initial letters four times oil thick cardboard ; rather large letters they ought to be, nearly a foot high. Then with scissors cut the letters out very carefully, then moss on them...

The Breakfast Table. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 June 1902

The Breakfast Table. In a household where the husband goes to business early m the day, and is unable to procure luncheon till, say, five hours after the breakfast, the greatest care and attention should be directed towards making the latter meal a success in every way. The menu should be as varied and as substantial as pos sible, and, above all, I personally think tinned foods, with the exception of sardines, should be avoided. It is all very well to say, as some writers on culinary subjects do, " Buy a really reliable brand and you are quite safe.*' Even reliable brands have u 4: - wn to fail upon occasion, and though the solitary instance or so may only be the exception which proves the rule, you, my reader, don't want to be that exception, do you? Fo again I say, avoid tinned foods of every sort or kind, and be on the safe side. Varietv. however, is of the utmost import ance, and I certainly think that no two break fasts in the week should be alike as regards the menu. It is not...

Woman's World. My Mother's Hands. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 June 1902

Woman's World. My Mother's HandB. Ify mother's hands Are neither white nor small; .And yon, I know, would scarcely think That they were fair at all. I've looked on hands whose form and hue A sculptor's dream might be; Tet are these aged, wrinkled hands Most beautiful to me. Through all my childhood's hours, Though heart were weary and sad, These patient hands hept toiling on, That we children might be glad. I almost weep as looking back To childhood's distant day, I think how these hands rested not, While mine were at their play. These hands Are growing feeble now, J?or time and pain have left their mark On hands and heartland brow. Alas ! alas ! the nearing time, And the sad, sad day to me, When 'ueath the dai3es out of sight, These hands will folded be. But Oh ! beyond this shadow-land, Where all is bright and fair, I know full well these dear old hands Will palms of victory bear; Where crystal streams through endless years Flow over golden sands, .And where the old are young agai...

Mackay. THE MINERAL RESOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 June 1902

Jdackay. THE MINERAL RESOURCES. A writer to the " Mackay Standard,*' writ ing under the above heading, furnishes the following interesting information regarding the mineral resources of the district. He says that Mount Britten, a field that has been left by gilt-edged mining companies, seeing they could not find the way to create a boom enabling them to unload their responsibilities. It is very satisfactory, however, to contem plate the work of those who were justly im pressed with the vast potentialities of this field, which has been obviously neglected by the agriculturists of Mackay. Dogged deter mination and persistence have overcome the harpies who usually flood mining districts, creating a feeling of unrest and frequently bringing about oblivion. An instance of this is most noticeable in the gold mining property more particularly known as the Edith Mary Lease, held by one of the pioneers of Mount Britten, who has, through all sortsi of adversity, pinned his faith to the field,...

Gladstone. TARGINNIE GOLDFIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 June 1902

Gladstone. TARGINNIE GOLDFIELD. A correspondent-, writing to the " Gladstone Observer, gives some interesting information concerning the mining industry at Targinnie. He says: -Had the field been kept more pro minently before the public eye it would not have drifted into the lethargic condition it is now lingering under, new energy would have been infused probably, and given a freshened vigour to the surroundings. Certainly the long delay that has occurred in placing the quartz crushing mill in position has in a mea suie helped tkIi »<le the prospect ; now 1 Imt its erection is neariuif cnmph»ti«m a brighter future awaits the struggling mineholders. A bout a thousand tons of stone will be out put before the battery is ready, from the two or three mines raising it.

Operations have been confined principally to the tunnel lode, how ever. where an adi...

The Garter-Skirt and Other Novel Petticoat Designs. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 June 1902

°The Garter-Skirt and Other Novel Petticoat Designs BY MME. BEN-YUSUF. THE evolution in the dress-skirt from the draped, jull affair of ten years ago to the sheath form with the flaring skirt-edge of to day-thejBkirt which, in tailor dresses, is fitted and pressed on the figure-has necessitated a corresponding change in under wear. Petticoats and all other undergarments are now fitted with as much care as the outer skirt. There must be no smallest wrinkle* or grease to mar the perfection of outline when the dress is worn. Even cbemisas are curved to the figure, and their fullness adjusted by means of a belt across the back, and a pointed casing in front for the shirring ribbon which fastens under the corset hook. At first, the fullness in the under-skirts which used to spread almost from hip to hip) ^was merely gathered into smaller space ; then The Newmarket Panftalet or Divided Skirl. Qarterlette Pettiooat.

MINING EXPENSIVE ECONOMY. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 June 1902

EXPENSIVE ECONOMY. IT was anticipated from the outset that one of tbe corollaries of Federation would be retrenchment in the cost of State administration. Indeed, the all round saving that could be effected by Federal combination was one of the most forcible arguments used in urging its acceptacce. What was not anticipated, and what would have been Ecouted. two years ago as a weak invention of the enemy, was that Federal authority would have been exercised with such wanton and reckless indifference to State Interests as to cripple their revenue and ruin their industries at one and the same time, making a dire necessity of that economy which had been contemplated only as a judicious saving. This, however, is unfortunately the position into which the minor States have been forced, and the worst sufferer of all is Queens land, so that it has had to undertake retrench ment with a vigorous hand without the least avoidable delay. But that in all! things it is effecting this retrenchment j...

SOUTHERN QUEENSLAND. THE FRASER ISLAND MISSION STATION. ^p^OGIMBAH MISSION STATION is on the west side of Fraser Island, opposite to Woody Island, some 65 miles :yy~3> south from the Sandy Cape Lighthouse, and near the mouth of Bogimbah or Mitchell's Creek. About 200 miles north of Brisbane, at the mouth of the Mary River, seven miles inland, is the old kauri pine plantation which many years ago was commenced by the present Surveyor-General, Mr. A. McDowal, as an effort towards re-foresting the island ; and on the eastern side of the island, about 45 miles over, is Indian Head, the most eastern point of Australia. On February 24th, 1897, Mr. Meston, under instructions from the Government, removed by the " Llewellyn" to Fraser Island, 51 dirty, ragged, diseased and wretched remnants of the old Wide Bay tribes.
