MICA AND MICA MINING. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902

MICA AND MICA MINING. Though mica is well-known to all, its nature and manner of production are very little understood; often, indeed, it is con fused with isinglass, a totally different sub stance, to which, however, it bears a super ficial resemblance. Mica is one of the most universal and common of the minerals that make up the earth's crust, its glassy lustre proclaiming its presence in granite, gneiss, schists, and the like; in some places the ground is covered with it. It combines with quartz and felspar to make granite, and all three are products of terrestrial heat, and are invariably formed when cooling is sufficiently slow. In only a few regions of the earth occur dykes containing mica in paying quantities, and there are never any certain indications of its presencej even for the most expert miner, it still substantially is a mere guess whether paying mica is present or not When it is present, the mica blocks often follow a distinct lead, but this often is discontinuous.

THE GEOLOGY OF THE BRISBANE VALLEY. DR. R. L. JACK, F.R.G.S., ETC. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902

THE GEOLOGY OF THE BRISBANE VALLEY. DR. R. L. JACK, F.R.G.S., ETC. The following abstract of a lecture deliver ed by Mr. R. L. Jack, in the South Brisbane Town Hall, in May, 1894, will be of special interest, now that attention is being paid to water conservation and mining development in the districts around Brisbane. Mr. Jack introduced his subject by giving his hearers a description of the geological formation of Queensland. He stated that the uplifting in the eastern region of Queensland took place before Middle Devonian times; and as yet there was no Brisbane River. He very much doubted whether there was even any dry land anywhere in the district now under consideration, as no Devonian rocks had been recognised. The continental track then uplifted above the sea comprised a great part of the northern portion of the colony, but in the south there were probably only a few islands. It was not till after sev eral upheavals that the coastal tableland was built up, and the stage prepa...

IN A DARK HOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902

IN A DARK HOUR. Those tender mothers! When such little things, Such helpless, fragile little things we are How they pray God for us! how they, make war For us with death ! and spread their mother wings About us full of anxious quiverings, And spying each least peril from afar, With their own arms, thereto made mighty, bar The way from harms and smile at adder* stings, And brave the tigers merciless and wild, In their deep love for us; and by and by, When we are men, to strive and stand alone, We clasp our desperate, aching heads and moan: Would God my mother had left me to die! Would I had died a sinless little child!

The Grumble Bee. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902

Tbe Grumble Bee. BY JENNIE HARTSWICK. " Oh, dear me !" sighed the grumble bee As he buzzed from flower to flower, " 'Tis weary work to constantly Improve each shining hour; I wish* I were that butterfly Who leads a life of pleasure From morning until night, while I Have not a moment's leisure. " Good morning, Mr. Grumble Bee," Remarked a nodding clover, " I hope you've time to visit me Wijh sweets I'm brimming over, To you I freely offer them If by tliis way you'll roam, sir You see, I'm fastened to my stem, And always am at home, sir. " It must be nice to be a-wing And wander where one pleases, But I can nod and sway and swing And curt'sy to the breezes; So, though I lack the pleasant power To fly and gather honey, I am content to be a flower Within my corner sunny." The clover's little homily Fulfilled a happy mission, For sulky Mr. Grumble Bee So says the old tradition Forgot straightway his discontent, And ceased at once to grumble, And by and by with one consent They changed hi...

A PAGE FOR LITTLE FOLKS What Happened Chuekie Wuckie's Kittens. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902

What Happened Chuekie Wuckie' Kittens. BY ISABEL CURTIS. ?HUCKIE WUCKIE owns three kittens. First of all there is Snowball. He is exactly like his name, a little soft ball of snow, only this Snowball is warm, while the snowballs you know are icy cold. Then there is. Mercy, all black and white, and Maltie, who looks just like a little gray muff. In the summer Chuckie W^ckie's kittens live outdoors. In the winter their home is down cellar, where they have gay larks. One morning Chuckie Wuckie's papa went down cel lar to find out why the house was so cold. The furnace needed more air to make it blaze up and grow red, so he opened the door at the bottom, and went np-stairs again. Pretty soon it grew quite hot up stairs, so down again he went; this time Chuckie Wuckie was at his heels. When he began to shake the furnace there came an awful shriek, and out at the lower;'door rushed three kittens with their furry coats burning up. Chuckie Wuckie serieked, too, but her papa lifted her up hi...

EAST ORIENTAL AND GLANMIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902

EAST ORIENTAL AND GLANMIRE. Is. situated north-east of the i South Orien tal, and east of the Oriental and Glanmire's leases. The mine had a share list of 80,000 shares, 60,000 contributing and 20,000 paid Hp to 5/- per share. The capital being all called up, the company was lately reformed into a share list of 160,000 shares at 5/- per share, consisting of 80,000 paid up shares to 5/-, and 80,000 contributing, on which 2d. per share has been called, which amounts to £666 13s. 4d., and with the 5/- per share paid by the original company on 60,000 shares, amounts to ,£15,666 13s. 4d. The shaft on this, lease was commenced in January, 1899, and vigorously "sunk until, in February of this year, the shaft reached a depth of 2,175 feet. Crosscuts were com menced at 2,154 feet east, and at 1,884 feet west, and another crosscut at 2,100 feet. These crosscuts are being pushed ahead, and at any moment a sensation may be caused by the cutting of a reef, as they have a splen did bed of aurifer...

The 2 South Great Eastern. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902

The 2 South Great Eastern. This company was formed in the year 1887, and commenced sinking a shaft from the surface on lease 675. Later on, like the South Glanmire and Monkland, the company obtained an additional area, embracing the old lease of the 1 South Great Eastern Ex tended, which lease has been held by that company from June, 1888, to May, 1899, This lease is undoubtedly one of the most important on the field, as through it all the Scottish Reefs follow their course. On the 23rd May, 1889, the extended area was applied for and added to the original lease No. 675, and then became lease No. 721, as it is now worked at the present time. Work was carried on until 1897, with varying success, shares being sold at 16s. per share about 1889, but after wards receding to id. per share. In the year spoken of (1897) a long crosscut was put in east, at the 775-feet level, and at a distance of 950 feet east of the shaft a reef was cut, which is now known as the No. 1 reef, this proved abo...

ORIENTAL CONSOLS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902

ORIENTAL CONSOLS. These leases, Nos. 1129, 1188, and 1133, have a total area of 50 acres, adjoining one another and are situated east of the Scottish Company and south of the East Oriental and Glanmire. The company consists of 100,000 shares of 5/- each per share, 70,000 being con tributing, and 30,000 paid up. The 5/- per share on the contributing having been called up, a reconstruction has taken place, form ing the company into a share list of 200*000 shares of 5/-each per share, 100,000 of which are paid up to 5/- per share, and 100,000 are contributing. The first call of 3d. in the new company will be due on the 10th July, 1902. The shaft was started in Ootober, 1898, and with a determination equal to that displayed by the East Oriental and Glanmire Company, and 1 South Oriental and Glanmire Company, was rapidly sunk down to a depth of about 1,725 feet. It is thought that it maybe necessary to sink considerably over a depth of 2,000 feet to reach the country, but as the Scottish...

BATHING FATALITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902

BATHING FATALITIE8. One of the most pathetic incidents it is possible to imagine is reported in the latest English files. Three little girls aged, respectively, 12,11, and 9 years, went down on the beach at a place known as Barnscar, for the purpose of gathering periwinkles. The tide was rising, and before the three unsuspecting sisters realised their position they were surrounded and cut off from the shore. Their cries attracted two men, named Frear and Mnsgrave, to the spot, and they immediately waded in. As the tide was running strong, and Mnsgrave was the only one who could swim, the work of rescue was left to him. Manfully he clove the tide, and succeeded in saving the two younger girls, when he was seized with cramps and was unable to undertake the third. trip. Frear, in the meantime, ran a mile to seek assistance, and although several men came back with him not one of them could swim. Helplessly they stood on the <$hore, while the tide rose higher and higher and th...

SOUTH ORIENTAL AND OLANMIRE COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902

SOUTH ORIENTAL AND OLANMIRE COMPANY. Is situated north of the Inglewood dyke, ajid north-east of the 2 South Great Eastern. It had 48jooo shares of 2/6 each, now reconsti tuted into 48,000 of 10/- each. Work was commenced about the end of the year 1897, and the sinking of the shaft was vigorously continued until October of last year. When the shaft reached a depth of 1,845 feet, crosscuts were put in at 1,600 and 1,800 feet, and at a distance of 214 feet in the latter a reef was cut of about 6 inches of quartz carry ing coarse gold, which gave a strong rise to the shares. The western crosscut at 1,600 feet was pushed ahead, and at about 320 feet west of the shaft, quartz was cut. The reef is generally supposed to be the same as that cut in the 1 North Oriental and Glannure's ground, but sufficient work has not been done to arrive at any definite decision at present. The cost of machinery and prospecting up to the present date is 7/6 per share on 48,000 shares, which is equal to a su...

THE VALUE OF GRIT. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902

THE VALUE OF GRIT. When there are a number of fowls running year after year they clear the ground of every particle of sharp grit. The larger the number of them, the more important it is to provide grit. It can easily be ascertained whether they have sufficient by opening the gizzards of those that die or are killed, and examining them. If the edges of the stones in it are sharp it is a sign that they are well supplied. If, however, the edges are blunt and round, it is a proof that the birds require something sharper. Chickens are oftem put out in a grass field, where there is not a particle of sharp grit, and the owner cannot make out why the}7 do not thrive better.

FEATHER EATING. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902

FEATHER EATING. The following receipt is recommended as a cure for feather eating:-Put three or four lumps of fresh burnt lime the size of eggs into an iron pot, slake the lime with boiling water, then stir into the lime about 6 ozs. of flowers of sulphur, add gradually 2 quarts of boiling water, stirring all the time, then boil gently for an hour or so, pour off die clear liquid, which will be the colour of dark brandy, bottle and cork well. A second boiling may be made with fresh water, but the liquid will not be so strong, A tablespoonful of the liquid to every six hens put into the water used for mix ing the meal is the best way to give it. The liquid given daily or twice a week will keep the fowls' plumage in good condition, and soon put a stop to feather eating. It is very beneficial during moulting time, and very good for young chicks and ducklings in confined runs.

SUCCESS IN FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902

SUCCESS IN FARMING. Many a short cut might be made on the farm by having roads and paths where most needed, by having them less rambling than many fanners have them, by using gates in stead of slip-rails, by doing away with fences whenever possible, by doing more horse arid machine work instead of hand labour, by making loads both ways when hauling, by teaching horses to step lively when required, by teaching yourself the same trick, by rising early, and getting hands to their work prompt ly, by talking less, by thinking and reading more, and by planning work, days, weeks, months, and even years ahead. Many a farmer is to-day working at a disadvantage suid unsuc cessfully because of his unsystematic ways of doing his work. He may have good ideas and work earnestly, and yet fail simply because he lacks system, and by lacking systftn he is surely and foolishly wasting energy which, if well directed, might produce far different re sults.
