Notes of the Month. Australian Trade with Great Britain. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 25 June 1900

Australian Trade with Great Britain. AN enormous expansion of the trade with, the Aus- tralasian colonies is no- ticeable in the last return of the British Board of Trade, wherein appear the business done with these colonies during January, February, March, and April, 1900. It will be noticed that the increase in produce alone above 1899 is £2,473,205, a remarkable de- velopment, with which increase a considerable amount must be credited to the colonies' ac- tion in standing by the mother country in her hour of need, as sentiment is undoubtedly a factor in British business, much though it may be described by unthinking critics. The fol- lowing are the figures for the four months men- tioned : - Wheat Beef (fresh) Mutton (fresh) Rabbits Batter (Victoria) Butter (N.S. W.) Butter (N.Z.) Cheese Wine Copper Lead Tin Wool Hides Tatlbw Leather Silver Silver Ore Gold 1899. £75,207 233,509 974.276 28,844 492,349 110.574 383.386 34, 195. 35,272 295,748 341,545 110,979 8,168,317 60,518 398,483...

QUEENSLAND GOVERNMENT MINING JOURNAL. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 25 June 1900

QUEENSLAND GOVERNMENT MINING JOURNAL. Although this journal disapproves 0f the principle of the issuing of periodicals by the Government Departments, as such papers are competitive with those already established, we would be doing an injustice to the able editor of the journal under review to give aught but praise for the production before us, and it will when "the thousand initial difficul- ties establishing a journal even of the humb- lest character" have been overcome; be a necessary part of the literature of the mining men of the colony and an excellent advertise- ment out of the colony of the mineral re- sources of Queensland. We regret that the Department of Mines, however, have allowed this publication to com into business com- petition with other journals which have not the unlimited resources which apparently have been placed at the command of the mining journal. We consider that the already heavily handicapped press are being treated with an injustice which is not honourab...

Legal Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 25 June 1900

1 Legal Notes In this column we propose to deal with   matters of law and custom in relation to land and stock. Those of our subscri-   bers desiring information upon such legal   points as are referred to should address   all communications to the Legal Editor.   OUR CORRESPONDENTS. NAMBOUR.-The 50 trucks promised for the coming crushing at the Moreton Central Sugar Mill are now completed. Half the new trucks are brake trucks. The number now available is over 150. The cane looks splendid in all directions. The tramway has been altered: in some respects, and repaired. The result of the work done in that way is that several danger- ous grades and ugly curves have been obviated. Crushing will commence in August. The manager anticipates crushing about 1,000 tons ol cane more than last year, and a considerable new area has been placed under cane for next season's crushing. The strawberry crop is coming on slowly, as a gene...

SHROPSHIRE SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 25 June 1900

SHROPSHIRE SHEEP. BY BRIGALOW. Perhaps no other variety of English mutton sheep has come so markedly into uni- versal favour as the Shropshire Downs sheep. The breed may be said to   have been established on its present lines   during the life of the present generation. The original breed of Shropshire sheep was one of the short-woolled varieties, producing excel-   lent mutton, but not a very early maturer. By a judicious blending of the South Downs and Shropshire sheep the present type of Shrop- shire Downs was evolved. Although the wool of the Shropshire cannot for a moment com- pare, for length and lustre of staple, with the Lincoln, nor for fineness with the English and Border Leicesters, it is a strong stapled wool, fairly dense, and its crop on the merino pro- duces a spendid carpet wool. But the great feature of the Shropshire is its great value in the perfect mariner in which it amalgamates with the merino, producing decidedly the best...

HORSE BREEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 25 June 1900

HORSE BREEDING (BY J. BURROW, Beenleigh.) This very important subject is too often neglected. A common mistake in breeding is often made, that mares are bred from after they become useless for work, regardless of hereditary diseases which may be transmitted to their offspring. It should be remembered that one of the characteristic laws of life is the reproduction in kind " like begets like." Both parents should be selected with refer- ence to their individual points of excellence, and also so that the points of one may be adapted to the points of the other; for, al- though both may be excellent individually, the points which characterise one may actually counteract those of the other, but, if defects exist, the breeder should be sure that it is merely accidental and not natural. None but sound parents should be bred from (accidents, of course, are not to be re- garded as unsoundness). Both parents should   be free from any infirmity relative to a vicious temper or bad d...

CULTIVATION OF THE MICROBE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 25 June 1900

CULTIVATION OF THE MICROBE. Consequent on a letter received from Dr. A. Loir, director of the Pasteur Institute, Tunis. North Africa, the Hon. H. C. Wood, M.L.C., president of the Queensland Stockbreeders' and Graziers' Association, and Mr. F. A. Blackman, the honorary secretary interviewed the Hon. J. V. Chataway, Secretary for Agri- culture, respecting Dr. Loir's proposal to come to this colony for the purpose of cultivating the microbe of pleuro-pneumonia.   Dr. Loir's proposal is opportune, as the ordi- nary cultivation of virus, hitherto used for the purpose or rendering cattle immune to that deadly disease, has fallen into disuse, owing to its unreliability. This is a serious matter for the stock-owners, the majority of them will be forced to use lung yirus, which, though perfectly safe when obtained by professional men, would be highly dangerous to the health of herds if taken and used by stock-owners, the majority of whom are incompetent to judge whether a beast...

Station Life in Queensland. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 25 June 1900

  Views at Dunraven, Maneroo, Evesham, Hughenden, and Vindex Stations, Western Queensland. DUNRAVEN Station is situated some eight miles from Saltern Railway Station, on the line from Rockhampton to Longreach, and in a fair season carries upwards of 40,000 sheep. A mile from the head station is the bore yielding 80,000 gallons of beautiful pure water per day from a depth of 2,ooo feet. Last year's clip from this station realised as high as 10¾d. per lb. in the grease at the Sydney wool sales. MANEROO Station is 30 miles from Longreach, and contains some beautiful grassed plains and downs when the weather is at all propitious. The owners of this run have contented themselves with making large circular tanks averaging 20,000 cubic yards, as artesian water is not expected at less than 4,000 feet. The Darr River and Catherine Creek runs tnrough the lease, which, in average season, carries 150,000 sheep EVESHAM Station is some 30 miles from Maneroo, and a continuation of the...

Field, Orchard and Garden. GARDEN WORK FOR JULY. FLOWER GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 25 June 1900

Field, Orchard and Garden. GARDEN WORK FOR JULY. (BY JAS. MITCHELL, Bowen Park.) FLOWER GARDEN. Keep the ground well stirred between the annuals. Plant roses and flowering shrubs. Such as need pruning should be attended to. Prune and clean old rose plants where not already done ; do not prune tea roses, only cut out diseased branches and any weak or sickly branches. Plant bulbs of all kinds, gladioli, amaryllis, etc. Do not plant tropical plants until well into spring. Give primulas, ciner- arias, and fuchsias a liberal supply of liquid manure. BUSHHOUSE. Ail plants must be carefully watched. Pick off all decayed leaves to prevent plants from damping off. This is a good time to repair or construct a bushhouse; it is too soon, how ever, to put new shading on; this is best done in spring when the sun becomes powerful. VEGETABLE GARDEN. Continue to transplant cabbages, khol rabi onions, eschalots, leeks, celery, parsley, etc., and make successive sowings of cabbage, peas, lettuce, carr...

The Premier's Northern Trip. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 25 June 1900

The Premier's Northern Trip. The Mon. R. Philp, Premier, left early this month by the Japanese steamer, "Yawata Maru" for a trip to North Queensland, accom-   panied by Messrs. A. J. Callan and G. Jack- son, MM.L. A., and also by Mr. H. S. Dutton, Under Secretary, Chief Secretary's Depart- TOWNSVILLE AND CASTLE HILL ment. He arrived at Townsville on the 5th instant. Needless to say, when the hospitality of the North is so well known, that a man in his position and so popular personally was received with an enthusiastic welcome everywhere he visited. Mr. Philp during his trip indicated the policy of the Government for the forthcoming session, chiefly in regard to railways, more of which he thought were wanted, particularly in the West to bring the western men into contact with the rest of the world, and to facilitate trade ; and from his remarks we gather that the Government is likely to give every help to private companies willing to spend money in opening up the coun- ...

The Districts of the UPPER LOGAN and ALBERT RIVERS (Queensland). ""Where Barney's heights and Lindesay's scarp stands   out abreast the range, And giant rocks, that beetle o'er the base of woods, are sentinels of beauteous vales." TOWARDS the end of the year 1826, but two years after the foundation of the Moreton Bay Settlement, there dropped down the Brisbane a small cutter which on several pre- vious occasions had been used by the various commandants--Bishop, Lockyer, Miliar, .and Logan-on their short voyages of exploration up the river. The last-named officer Had, during the twelve months of his command, been indefatigable in his endeavours to remove the doubts and mysteries of the country adjacent to. the settle- ment, and he it was who, on this October morning, journeyed to the river mouth, and then coasting south, between Stradbroke Is- land and the mainland, discovered another river which now bears his name, but then designated by him the Darling. He ascended the...

From Jimboomba to Beaudesert and Christmas Creek. There's a light about to break There's a day about to dawn, Men of thought, men of action Clear the way." [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 25 June 1900

From Jimboomba to Beaudesert and   Christmas Creek. There's a light about to break There's a day about to dawn, Men of thought, men of action Clear the way." The Logan District is entered upon shortly after passing Loganlea, where the River Logan is crossed by a substantial iron bridge. At Bethania Junction, a mile beyond and 20 miles from Brisbane, the Beaudesert line branches off the Southport line, and, going almost due south, between the Logan and Albert rivers, reaches Beaudesert, the ter- minus, at a distance of 47 miles from the city. The district of the Upper Logan and Albert commences properly after passing Logan Vil- lage, a small township prettily situated on the banks of the Logan River. Southward from here for 50 miles to the McPherson Range at the head of Christmas Creek, the country shows a continued improvement in the quality of the soil. Away from the river's bank the country consists mainly of ridges of sandy loam, lightly timbered, very suitable for f...

Upper Logan and Christmas Creek Districts. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 25 June 1900

Upper Logan and Christmas Creek Districts. ONE scarcely desires the memory of the road from Beaudesert to Lara, for it had rained but a short time previously and over the black soil plain by gully and ridge, the vehicle bumped and swerved, jolted and sank in the ruts of the timber waggons, until the fact of obtaining an opinion of the country traversed became merged into "ex- pressing" an opinion with jerky interludes of the idiosyncrasies of the road. I remember that the soil was black and sticky, that some   excellent patches of lucerne and maize were visible, that about two miles from Beaudesert a School House and Teacher's Residence, Beaudesert.   Photo - Dr. Davies. beautiful view opened out of the plains to the northward by Beaudesert and Bromelton, and that we passed an enormous number of timber waggons, but chiefly I remernber the assertion of my companion that " the road should have come some other way," with which I emphatic- cally agreed. It was ...

[?], Telemon, and Rathdowney Stations. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 25 June 1900

Tamrookum, Telemon,     and         Rathdowney Stations. AS mid-day merges into afternoon we turn a corner, and leaving the road   we have so far travelled to take its way to the southern uplands, we proceed past a faded, falling sign post, one-armed, which in time long past bore the legend "To Telemon and Maroon." A scarf in the post denotes where once another guide plate existed, pointing to Beaudesert. Before us stretch the timber-bor- dered banks of the Logan, and a quarter of a mile from the turn-off we drive down an incline and swing across the narrow bridge that spans the river, high above the water's level, which, but a few yards wide, slowly winds its way toward the distant sea. Logs and fallen trees   left by former floods, bar the water's way, which, gathering power and volume as its many tributaries add their might, passes by farm and hamlet with majestic power sweepin...

From Lara to Cannon and Knapp's Creek. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 25 June 1900

From Lara to Cannon and Knapp's Creek. CANNON Creek rises near Knapp's   Peak, an isolated cone about 20 miles westward from Lara, and junctions with the Logan River a mile below the township, receiving in its course the waters of Knapp's   Creek at Knapp's Creek schoolhouse, some 3 miles from Lara. The road by which to reach the district adjacent goes S.W. from opposite Stretton's Hotel. The signboard at the corner Mr Drynan's Homestead, Telemon Crossing, Lara is of but little use, but the road is good and well defined the whole way. Shortly after leaving Stretton's the Logan River is crossed by a wooden bridge which spans the log strewn water, relics of past floods. Here is entered the Tamrookum Estate; the head station house lies away to the south on a beautiful knoll. Two miles from the bridge after passing through the latter estate, from the summit or an eminence a beautiful view is before you, of valley, ridge, peak, and range. The well-culti- vated f...

The Upper Albert and Canungera Creek. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 25 June 1900

7 \ The Upper Albert and Canungera Creek. There is but one road out and in from Beau- desert to Lara, and once again I felt "the error of its ways," reaching the railway ter- minus, Beaudesert, in the evening, and the following day went out from the black soil flat whereon Beaudesert is built, and past the Court House to the Albert River, traversing the sandstone ridges and alluvial valleys that intervene as the sun was leaving the distant hill tops for the higher sky, and with the sharp morning breeze freshening one after the misty night. Ridges of ironbark and spotted gum interspersed its gullies and covered with light loam are the predominating features until opposite Tabragalba, five miles from Beaudesert, where a great long plain is crossed, bounded by the Albert River. You cross this narrow stream, and beneath an arch of willows and cedars drive along the narrow track which divides the river from the long lagoon lying at the base of the hill whereon is built Tabragalba House. ...

The Lara Railway Meeting. WHILE at Lara, I took an oppor- tunity which offered to attend the meeting that was called, that cold Sat- urday afternoon of June the 9th, in   this year, of warlike memories, to   consider the question of railway extension   up the river. Outside the small school house along the fence were ranged numerous horses, while inside, on the long forms usually occu- pied by scholars ; were their owners, pioneers of the district, as Mr. Phillips well put it, all desirous of obtaining the fullest information relative to this the foremost question, and the only stumbling block to the progress and up- lifting of the district. Mr. Plunkett, M.L.A. for the Albert, was unanimously voted to the chair; he introduced the subject in a concise manner. Mr. Andrew Drinan, senr., member of the Tabragalba Board, followed, finishing his advocacy of waiting until the Government built the line, with the remark, which com- pelled a smile--that ...
