O'DONNELL'S DAUGHTER. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902
O'DONNELL'S DAUGHTER. By MADGE BARLOW. Lies did not slip readily from the lips ®f O'Donnell's daughter. Her face was a direct contradiction to the words, hut she bore herself proudly, helped by & sudden impetuous anger that lifted her above timidity and strengthened her failing courage. "As I said before, I knew who you .were from the beginning, but led you to believe otherwise because ft suited my purpose. I wanted to win your love that I might have the pleasure of rejecting you with scorn, and seeing you suffer a little. Do you understand me, Mr Lester? I was only acting a part; paying off some of the debt of hatred we owe the usurper who sits in Rath donnell while the last of the name dies in a mean hovel. Oh, go away. I «3on't want to say too much or speak ?vindictively." "You are foolish to excite yourself," he -*aid, in calm, even tones. "I will not -detain you against your wish, and I ?&lt;do not intend to 'wear the willow' for a woman who could stoop to such ...

JOHN HICKS, LTD., COMPLETE HOUSE FURNISHERS, GEORGE STREET, BRISBANE.

THE GARDEN SPRING PROPAGATIONS. HINTS ON STRIKING CUTTINGS. (G. MUNRO, Beenleigh.) [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902
GARDEN SPRING PROPAGATIONS HINTS ON STRIKING CUTTINGS. (G. MUNRO. Beenleigh.) Early in spring there are probably more cuttings rooted, especially of soft-wooded plants, than at any other season of the year. Amateurs in their first attempt at propagation by cuttings are often at a loss how t&lt;? proceed, and a few hints on the subject may be useful to those who have not had much experience. In the first place, the question is frequently asked, "In what condition should the shoots be of which the cuttings are to be made ? " To this question no positive answer can be given, as cuttings of one particular kind of plant may strike best in a very soft state, while those of another may require to be made of firm growth, and what is termed half-ripened wood._ For all such plants as bouvardias, bougainvilleas, chry santhemums, coleus, fuchsias, heliotropes, lobe lias, petunias, verbenas, and others of a similar character, the cuttings should consist of quite young, soft shoots, the s...

FEED PIGS FOR BACON. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902
FEED PIGS FOR BACON. The following is a summary of an article which recently appeared in an American ex change. T%e points contained therein should be of value to the farmer. All the foods sug gested can be grown on the farm. WHEAT AND ITS BY-PRODUCTS. Wheat has a high feeding value, practically equal to maize, as regards the amount of gain in live weight, and the quality of the meat pro duced is also good. It is only, however, dur ing an era of low prices for that grain that it can be economically and profitably used for feeding purposes. It was thought at one time that wheat might be the cause of soft bacon, but Professor Robertson has proved that such is not the case. Of the by-products of wheat, the value of middlings as a food for both young and old pigs is well known. Lucerne is a great help during the fattening period where pigs are largely fed on corn, be ing very rich in protein and adding volume to the feed. Lucerne is a great factor in pig feeding. It furnishes the riches...
THE FIRST PIG IN SCOTLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902
THE FIRST PIG IN SCOTLAND. The first pig known to Scotland was, it is said, a gift to a gentleman in Dumfrieshire. He was named Gudeman o* the Brow. One day he got out-the pig, not the gentleman-stayed out over night, and scared the whole parish of Carlavroe nearly out of their senses. They prayed for mercy, and thought Old Nick had come to town. He rooted around quietly, un mindful of the consternation he was spreading. Then the Scot turned on him, chased him to a standstill, and hayforked him to death. This was in 1720.
SKIM MILK, BUTTER MILK, AND WHEY. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902
SKIM MILK, BUTTER MILK, AND WHEY. Numerous experiment and practical work done by individual feeders have proved the great value of dairy by-products as part of the rations for fattening pigs. There is practically no difference in the feeding value of skim milkr butter milk, or whey, when all three are fed in prime condition, except that, of course, that the skim milk would be richer or poorer, ac cording to the care taken to remove the butter fat in the separator. Five pounds of skim milk per head a day is an ecoftiomical allowance ii* fattening pigs over one hundred pounds in weight when mixed grains are fed.

THE WHEAT AND FLOUR MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902
THE WHEAT AND FLOUR MARKET. The Warwick mills are now offering 5/3 for any lots of wheat which remain in the district. There is still a fair amount of grain about, and a reliable estimate places the total at something over 3,000 bags. A likely buyer infomks lis that he is able to locate three lots of 2 00 bags each, another of 230, and of 300, 460, 500; and 700. A local speculator also holds 3,500 bags in store. Last week " the Commonwealth Mill pur chased one lot of Freestone wheat, 600 bags, at 5/3- . ?. The mill price for flour is^£12 to ^12 10s. per ton, bran -£10 10s., and pollard £10. The Warwick Farmers' Milliing Co. recently purchased a new boiler for their mill. Its weight is 13 tons. The boiler is to l^d, and will be set in position next month.-" Warwick Examiner and Times."
PIGS. SELECTION OF GOOD DAM FOR BREEDING PIGS FOR BACON CURING. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902
.:&£«) PIGS' vSjfc: SELECTION OF GOOD DAM FOR BREEDING PIGS FOR BACON CURING. First experience has proved in my case that it is best to choose a dam, say, at four months, as then you can rest assured that she will not deteriorate in form as in the case of picking one at tw o months; as I have seen such when at six months of no use for the purpose in tended, although of pure-berd Berkshire type. Now, as to choosing your dam. Any good breed of pig will do, providing she has the fol lowing points:-A good square frame, stand ing on " shortish " legs, with good length of body. Level from tail to neck as possible, not a wedge-shaped pig (as is the choice in cows), but a good, quiet pig. Full eyes and long, soft hair, will, when at nine months old, be full grown, and can then be mated to a pure-fertd Berkshire boar, erf a good, plump stamp, rather of a more compact build than the dam. Second: Having now commenced your breed ing, care has to be taken now in feeding and exercise on t...

THE COPPER MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902
THE COPPER MARKET. There is every reason to hope that the price of copper will now be well maintained, and ther ? are many causes which will contribute to this desirable end. The great progress of the electrical industries alone should account for a considerable expansion in the demand, while the consumption of copper in connec tion with armaments must still be very heavy. There was talk some years ago of finding a substitute, but it has not been discovered so far, and now that prices have fallen back to an extremely reasonable level there is no ex cuse even for troubling to look for it. There should be plenty of copper in the world to meet all wants without entailing any scarcity or any prohibitive advance in prices. As long as mine owners can secure a fair profit on working their properties, and as long as con sumers are not threatened with exorbitant prices, the supply of the world's copper de mand should present no difficulties. So long as the price of copper fluctuates between ...
"PYRITIC" SMELTING OF GOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902
" PYRITIC" SMELTING OF GOLD. In a paper recently read before the En gineers Society of Western Pennsylvania, Mr. W. F. Koch claims that sulphur, so far from being a deleterious ingredient, may often be a positive advantage if the older methods of treating such ores are abandoned, and the gold is obtained by "pyritic" smelting. In this case the sulphur, instead of being wasted by roasting it off, serves as fuel, replacing an equivalent quantity of coke. The ores charged into the furnace are quartz ores, lime ores, quart® and lime ores, quartz and aluminous ores, all containing gold in varying amounts and a small percentage of copper. Mixed with these are the pyritic ores, ranging from pyrites to pyrites with quartz, quartz with pyrites, lime and pyrites, and quartz, lime, alumina and pyrites, which form a fairly representative list of refractory gold ores. The furnace used is a ample water-jacketed blast furnace, having provision* for collecting the waste heat which is utilised for w...
ALDERSHOT, MARYBOROUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902
ALDERSHOT, MARYBOROUGH. It is always pleasing to record the steady pro gress of the Aldershot Smelting Works. Only a month or so ago we gave particulars of a new calcining furnace, and now a contract has been let for another of the same size; that is, the building will be about 70ft. by 42ft. and some 30,000 bricks will be used in the furnace. The contractors are Mr. Witt for the brickwork, Mr. F. Hinsch for the woodwork, and Mr. W. Wells for the galvanised iron work. " The works are busier just now than they have been since they were opened. The Maryborough w Colo nist" reports that the Hopewell arrived there on August 27th with about 200 tons of ore for the Aldershot works for treatment.
5 SOUTH-EASTERN. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902
5 SOUTH-EASTERN. Lease No. 1143 is situated more on the western portion of the field, but south of the Inglewood reef. This company started opera tions by continuing work in an old shaft which had been previously sunk to a depth of 630 feet. Sinking for the slate was conducted until a depth of 1,018 feet was reached, when, on the 15 th March, 1900, work was discon tinued. This company expended ,£1,500, or about 7^d. per share on 50,000 shares. There is little or no value attaching to these shares. For a comparison of value it is interesting to take the six Eastern mines just referred to three on the north side of the Inglewood, namely, j South Oriental, East Oriental and Glanmire, and Oriental Consols; and three on the south side-1 South Gympie Gold Mines, 3 and 5 South-Eastern, all of which started about the same time with the object of prospecting the eastern ground.

SOUTH GYMPIE GOLD MINES. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902
i SOUTH GYMPIE GOLD MINES. Lease No. 1033 was formed into the com pany named the 1 South Gympie Gold Mines, and the shaft sunk to a depth of 2,495 feet. At a depth of 1,400 feet, the Monkland slate was expected, but contrary to expectation, it never appeared, although it was sunk for to the great depth of 2,495 feet, at which point sinking was discontinued. At a depth of 1,424 feet, prospecting was carried on without much success. The amount spent on prospecting was equal to 8/- per share on 48,000 shares, amounting to ^19,200. The market price of these shares to-day is about 2/3 per share, equal to ^6,000, showing a loss of ^13,200. At one time the Scottish Gympie Company offered 12/- per share to purchase, and it was understood that possibly the offer would have been increased to 15/- per share. But '.he shareholders, by special resolution, firmly de clined to part with their property. EASTERN AND WESTERN SHAFTS, NICHOLLS' LEASE, GYMPIE.
EASTERN LEASES, SOUTH SIDE THE INGLEWOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902
EASTERN LEASES, SOUTH SIDE THE INGLEWOOD. * The important developments that .took place in both the Scottish Gympie and 2 South Great Eastern, and the enormous size arid strength of the reefs, gave, most fayourable impressions, and indications that such strong bodies would nojt be displaced from their course by the Inglewood reef, and that the auriferous bed of slate, known as the Monk land slate, would be met with in the south side of the Inglewood. In consequence of such opinions, the following leases were taken up on the south side, companies floated and shafts sunk, the principal mines being the i South Gympie Gold Mines, and 3, 4 and 5 \ # South-Eastern.
ROCKHAMPTON. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902
ROCKHAMPTON. Gold is not attracting very much attention just now, owing, no- doubt, to the great scarcity of water everywhere. Coal is the idol of the moment. But news in this connection is very scarce. The other day, however, the people interested in the Dunstan property, on the Dawson, had a cablegram from Mr. H. Walker, who is now in London, containing the words " Success assured.'' Mr. Walker has had this mine under offer to him for more than a year, and he tried to float it from here through the agency of a financier in the old country; but things went amiss in some way, and he went home himself to do it. What he has accom plished is not known; but I know that the owners of the mine stipulate only for the for mation of a company with a capital of ^150,000, that they should receive cash to the amount of ^£2,000, and that they should get, in addition to the cash, paid-up shares sufficient to make the value of the share of each ^1,000, That is, that they should get cash and paid-u...
