COLONIAL SUGAR REFINING COMPANY. fHE 95 th half-yearly meeting of the Colonial Sugar Refining Company, Ltd., was held last month the Tfion. H. £. Kater, M.L.C., presiding. The directors' report stated that the profits made ^during the half-year, after providing for interest and all other charges, amounted to JB100, 195, to which sum had to be added the balance at profit and loss account on Sep tember 80, 1901, £92,016, leaving available £192,211.

The chairman, in moving the adoption of the report, said: - When addressing you six months ago I said very little about the Federal iariff just then in trod need, thinking that the attitude of the Customs as to the points in which we were concerned would soon be defined, but we are still in doubt about the intentions of the Government in regard to...
MESSRS. WALKERS LIMITED. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 June 1902
MESSRS. WALKERS LIMITED. OME idea may be formed of the character and magnitude of the great engineering firm of Walkers Ltd., from the following brief notes on the present state of the work carried on by the firm. The mining machinery department of the company has of late been extremely active, and this activity gives promise of continuance. Two winding plants have been completed and a third is under construction. The first of these wind ing plants is the third order which Walkers Limited have received from the Wallaroo and Moonta Copper Company of South Australia, for large winding machinery. The plant is a massive piece of work, with 28 inch cylinders and 48 inch stroke, and drums of 10ft. diameter The plant alongside is nearly as A PORTION OF WALKEBS LTD. LOWER WORKS, MARY RIVER, MARYBOROUGH. large as the South Australia order, and is intended for the Brilliant Extended, Charters Towers, and is also neariog completion. Bat both these plants will be entirely eclipsed by the third,...
AN OLD SERVANT. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 June 1902
AN OLD SERVANT. ANewoomen engine at Farme Colliery, Butherglen, which was brought to light in oonneotion with the last Engineering Congress at Glasgow, was built in 1809« and has worked contiguously to the present time. As it was constructed long after Watt's invention of the seperate condenser, it may, perhaps, be inferred that one object in its design was to escape payment of roy$lfy. Oariously enough, unlike all other Newoomen engines of which there is a record, it is a winding, not a pumping engine. The cylinde* is of pure Newcomen type, but there is a modified Watt parallel with the radius bar above the beam, and a crank and fly-wheel of comparatively modern type. The cylinder is 3} feet in diameter, and the stroke 6 feet. It takes about 85 seconds to raise coal from the bottom of the pit to the ground level. The cylinder was never bored, but it has now a beautiful internal surface, having worn out probably a thousand packings. The piston is packed with hemp gasket, and carries...
Problems of Irrigation. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 June 1902
Problems of Irrigation. A potato field was placed under irrigation tests, part being irrigated and part not. As it happened one section of the field was com posed of sandy soil and the other of heavy clay soil. It was irrigated twice, and the last irrigation was followed by heavy rains. Mark the result. On the sandy portion the inoreaee of yield of potatoes due to irrigation was at the rate of 81 bushels per acre. On the heavy day portion the decrease of the yield of potatoes dne to irrigation was at the rate of 56 bushels per acre. It is believed that had it not been for the rains coming after the second irrigation the yield on the irrigated clay portion would have shown a large in crease over the unirrigated portion. It will thus be seen that the problem of irrigating clay soils is much greater than the problem of irrigating sandy soils.

THE BRISBANE TRAMWAYS COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 June 1902
THE BRISBANE TRAMWAYS COMPANY. At the dinner recently tendered by the Company to the employees, Mr. Badger, the General Manager of the Company, stated, amongst other things, that a document had been forwarded authorising the opening of a local share register, so that Brisbane Tram ways Company shares could be bought locally in the Brisbane market. The time had ccpie when the company thought Brisbane people should be given a chance to share in tie profits as well as the other advantages. He pointed out that since the company had started operations about six years ago, they had paid wages in Brisbane alone amounting to £265,400. For material, such as road metal, poles, sleepers, etc., supplied by Bris bane people, they had paid £188,500, and for other goods £104,500, or £558,000 spent most ly in Brisbane. This was apart altogether 10211 the goods imported from America and Er gland. Where blossoms fail for a long time to produce fruit this will probably be due to a want of cross-fertil...

Agricultural Lands of North Queensland. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 July 1902
Agricultural Lands of North Queensland. The rapid absorption of the *ioh apricultural lands of the Darling Downs, the constantly increasing demand for such lands by intending settlers from the southern states, combined with the competition for the finest blocks, by which the price is greatly increased, must inevitably have the eftect of inducing farmers, desirous of settling in Queensland, to turn their attention to the far north of the state. The agitation in favour of the restriction of the kanaka on the northern plantations on the ground that the climate is adverse to the constitution of the white w rker, has unfor tunately led to the supposition that the whole of North Queensland is a fiery furnace, a vapour bath, a hotbed of fevers and diseases innumerable, which must for ever preclude the white man from engaging in agriculture on its rich arable lands. A NOBTHEEN SCRUB. i |We are quite willing to agree with the contention that the northern coastal climate is trying to the Euro...
BREAD PUDDING. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 July 1902
BREAD PUDDING. All kinds of milk puddings and stewed fruit are good for children, but they should not be served constantly in the one way; for in stance, children often dislike the ordinary baked rice pudding, but if the same ingredi ents were steamed;, turned out of a mould, and served with fruit, jam, or syrup, they would not have to be coaxed to eat it. Bread pudding may be made with stale bread, but it must be well soaked in milk. Add two well-beaten eggs to each pint of milk used to soak the bread. Butter a pie-dish, decorate with a few strips of candied peel and some sul tanas, put in a layer of bread, then a few bits of butter strewn over a grating of nutmeg, and a sprinkle of castor sugar. Nearly fill the pie dish, bake in a very moderate oven, turn out on a hot dish, and serve with custard sauce.

Produce Markets. Very little alteration has taken place in the price of (odder, and, as we stated in our last issue, no hopa of any alteration may be expected until the Spring. Some very badly baled hay whioh arrived from the Forest Hill diet ict, brought correspondingly bad prices. Sugar has arrived in such large quantities that the market has become glutted, the rates ruling * absurdly low. Molasses in kegs was submitted lor the first time, and brought fairly good prices.

RECIPES.—CONTINUED. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 July 1902
EECIPWT CONTINUED. DEVONSHIRE CREAM.--The milk is strained into the pans direct from the cows in the usual way. In 12 or 24 hours time, according to the weather, the pans are brought to the fire and the milk heated until just a slight simmer ing takes place-just a little movement of the surface, not a boil. The pans may then or shortly afterwards be moved back to the dairy, there to stand till the milk is cold, say about 12 hours. Then the cream can be removed, and will be quite thick-clotted cream in fact. The dairy folk in Devon reckon the milk is better to stand for 24 hours or even longer in winter before scalded, but in summer it is SOME MEAT CHILDREN'S DBESSES. not safe to let it stand more than 12 hours lest it" turn." In scalding, the best plan is to set the milk-pans in boiling water, although some folk put them on the kitchen range. But in this latter plan there is danger of the milk burning to the pan-bottoms. Some declare the milk ought to stand and stew a little after i...
