THE STOCK POT. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 6 February 1930

THE STOCK POT. Perhaps it was the weather, but tiio bulk of the alleged jokes that limped in during the past week were as stale as the last bread baked in Pompeii. They were flung back into the ceme tery of dead jokes, their going being ?without even the benefit of a line in the Casualty Column. This one gets the- '5s. prize: — A maiden lady was horrilicd at a number of smaJl boys bathing in the nude. 'Isn't it against the law to bath* without clothes oni' she deman ded. ' Vos, miss, but Tommy's father is a policeman, and you can come in/' was the reply. 'Katella.' This one is second: — Overheard in Mackay during tiie 'wet': ' 'Wonderful rain, Pat, this'll biMiu; everything up out of the ground-' 'By cripes, Mick, I hope not- 1'V'J got two wives under there and one above, an' if they're all up . together there'll be a hell of a row.' These also ran more or less in the or der given: — It was obvious to all his fellow tra vellers that old 'Yorky' had been cele brating, and a pious gen...

THE BREAKING OF THE DROUGHT [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 6 February 1930

THE BREAKING OF THE DROUGHT (Written by Lillian Sanders). Ilrv Dale looked up at the sky and sighed. Not a cloud suspended itsci: in the air,- not a cloud hung over the horizon. The sky was bright and clear; the day was hot Th;re had been no rairt for months. The grass was dead, and lmrdly any water could be found, and the stock was dying . fast. 'Well, Mary, there i6 not going to be any rain again to-day,' he Baid sadly, as he sat down heavily into the chair, at the head of the table. Tea was almost ready, and Mrs. Dale was briskly mashing the last lot of veget ables with a fork. 'Keep hoping, John,' she said, as she poured out the tea, '£he rain cannot hang off for ever.' 'Perhaps not,' he answered, 'but it will hang off until I am ruined.' . The family ate . their tea in .silence. In the paddocks around them cattle were dying. They could not even pre serve their best cows until the drought should break. Tea over Mr. Dale got up and pushed aside his chair with an irritable geE tur...

MARMOR. For this month up till the 25th we had 22.78 ins. of rain. With the ex reption of the 23rd it was good steady rain, ranging from 12 to 238 pts. To UD'pt all calculations, for the 24 hours mcled !» a.m. on the 23rd we had 14.45 ins. This constitutes a record for one day. Mr. Sara Evans has kept a very ''ompleie record since 1917 and 1 think thai ihe previous record was 9 ins. That the Central Coast cricket matches in Kockhampton could not be held was hard luck, but cricketers know how io take these setbacks. The R.C.A. \\il!, we feel sure, grant us another ilai.p.

The wet weather prevented cricket on Sunday last against Gracemere and the match set down against the Musgraves for Sunday next has been postponed for 'the same reason. vYycarbali, January 28, 1930.

THE COTTON MARKET. The Patel Cotton Co., Bombay, it ported on the 3rd instant; — The cotton market has remained dull and uninteresting, the intervening holi days being tho additional cause lor in activity. With the question of the 6ize of the crop now practically settled, i( is natural that the attention of Ui-: market should be diverted chiefly to tlu' study Of prevailing conditions in the cot ton textile industry, and the possibili ties of consumption. The New Yor« Cotton Exchange Service estimates tin world's consumption of American cot ton exclusive of linters during Novem ber at 1,164,000 bales against 1,339,001 bales during the same month of the last season. According to the same au thority, the present indications point to a substantial curtailment in tliu world's consumption of American cot ton, and as Indian cotton is selliug bo low the normal parity with American there is a tendency on the part of spin ncrs to switch from American to lii dian.

POTATO GROWING. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 6 February 1930

POTATO GROWING. It is interesting to note that the De velopment and Migration Commission in investigating the potato industry in Australia give the following average yields of potatoes in different coun tries: — ~ Tons per acre England and Wales ? 6.0 . Germany ? , , ., . , . , 52 Belgium ? , ? .. 74 Denmark ? 47 France ? , ...' 3,9 Irish Free State .. ,.'... 5.4 Holland ., ? flV New Zealand ? 5,4 United States .., ? 3.0 Australia ? ' . . ' 0.G7 It also points out the need for live stock in association with potato pro duction, as potatoes need large amounts of manures. In Europe the potato fields receive dressings of farmyard manure as a routine practice. This not only provides plant nutrients, but also sup plies the soil with humus, which is ne cessary for success. The following methods are recom mended for Australian conditions: ? Grow forage crops in rotation with potato plots and graze off with lire stock. On lighter soils lay down temporary pasture as part of the rotation, whic...

AUSTRALIAN TOBACCO. CENTRAL DISTRICT WORK. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 6 February 1930

AUSTRALIAN TOBACCO. CENTRAL DISTRICT WORK. Although it is widely known that as much as 5 per cent, of Australian grown leaf is. used in the make up of all brands of tobacco manufactured iu Aus tralia, it is interesting, from an econ omical point of view, to learn that in vestigations are being conducted throughout the Commonwealth as to the possibilities of growing tobacco on a scale, largo enough at least, to sup ply our own needs. The standing pre judice against the Australian leaf is that it is rank and the aroma poor and uneven. However, a pamphlet issued by the Commonwealth of Australia on 'The Smoking Qualities of Australian To bacco' points out that the factors in fluencing the character of the aroma are environmental and that the type and variety of tobacco have a great influence ? on the burning properties of the cured leaf. Aroma, so far. has re ceived comparatively little attention. One probable reason for this is that in the past markets and trade demands have been built...
