Brown Apple Was Sweet Fruit. Coup Upset By Wet Weather. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 30 January 1930
Brown Apple Was Sweet Fruit. Coup Upset By Wet Weather. T3AIN on a racecourse is never re garded as the enemy of the odds layer. in fact it is reckoned to be one of the many agencies work ing in his favour. It panned out that way for several Eockhampton fielders in connection with the first day of the Q.T.C. Anni versary meeting. It is, of course, possible to get a set price in Rockhampton about minor events in Brisbane, and when Brown Apple figured on the local charts at 6 to 1 in the Flying, a couple of agents Blipped round on Friday night and took all the money that was of' fering. Others were prepared to do business at an even shorter quote on Saturday morning. There was every evidence that Brown Apple was going to start very much in demand, and that any bookie who wanted to back him back on the course would have to 'take a very much worse price than he had laid. Then came the rain and it was doubtful if even Ascot would stand racing on. Scratehings were heavy and Brown Apple wa...

BOULDERGOMBE. Since the 16th inst.. light rain has fallen at intervals, 2 ins. being regis ?,.' tered. The country could hardly look better, and the dairymen are going at top speed. A social evening given by Mr. George Maguire, who is on a visit from Cairns to Ms parents, was voted by all pre sent as a great success, the Royal Hall being taxed to its utmost capacity. The L.P.A, meeting was 'well attend ©a, ana amongst mo important resolu tions dealing with primary matters , was the subject of acquiring the fruit section of the C.O.D. at Rockhampton.

Callaghan Park Under Water. R.J.C. May Not Race For Some Time. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 30 January 1930
Callaghaii Park Under - Water. R.J.C. May Not Race For Some Time i rpHE Rockhampton Jockey Club's -*- racecourse is as capable of stand ing up to wet weather as most rinks as was demonstrated on New Year's Day. But the seven inches which fell early in the week preceding the commencement of the Anniversary meeting was too big a hurdle. It was fine when the committee met on Friday morning and decided upon a postponement of the first day, and there was a disposition from out eide to hurl the inevitable brick. The decision proved a wise one, however, for rain set in again and even had the track been alright the racing would have been conducted be fore a small crowd. A continuance of the rain and the rising of flood waters,, which may in undate portion of the racing track, makes it problematical as to when the premier club will be in a position to resume operations. Consequently the Anniversary meeting has been cancelled and a fresh date will be applied for when the course is ready to re...

HEAVY RAIN AFFECTS ANNIVERSARY DAY RACING PROGRAMME [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 30 January 1930
HEAVY RAIN AFFECTS ANNIVERSARY DAY RACING PROGRAMME Heavy rain interfered with the Anniversary race meetings in many centres, but the general good resulting therefrom was a decided offset, and racegoers, though they do not like to be put off what to them is as much business as recreation, accepted the conditions in good spirit. At Rockhampton the two-days' meeting had to be postponed, and will probably be abandoned. Brisbane just managed to get through with small fields, and in Sydney racing was conducted on a Heavy track. In the circumstances it is not surprising that punters found the going nearly as heavy as did the horses, and few winners were reported. v
THE CAVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 30 January 1930
THE CAVES. Driving through the district on Sun day last to the vineyard at Jlilnian one could not help contrasting the present season with the season this time last year. The farms then wore an ap pearance of prosperity. One could see beautiful patches of cotton, peanuts, and niiii/.e and Rhodes grass every vrhere. To-day there is certainly abun dance of the latter, growing even where crops were anticipated. Large areas of cultivation on the slopes lay bare of crops, as the rain came too late to plant, and then heavy rain made it impossible to get on the lield. Cultivation, ploughs, etc., were there, just as their owners left then;, hoping for a spell of fine weather. Mr. Loose had the good fortune to dispose of his fine crop of -vinos before the rain came. On Sunday he had a small quantity remaining on the vines an-1 hoped to have them off this week. The grapes were of a remarkable size and lias our and found a quick sale. A few farmers Mere giving the rowpea a try out, as it is re...

FUTY YEARS AGO. (From 'Capricornian' Files.) Th© following are extracts from the issue of ' The Capricoruian ' of Janu ary 31st, 1880: — A meeting of a private character was held at the offices of Messrs.
