CRESSBROOK STAION BRISBANE RIVER DISTRICT QUEENSLAND A WELL-KNOWN QUEENSLAND CATTLE STATION. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 August 1900

A WELL-KNOWN QUEENSLAND CATTLE STATION. " Cressbrook," the property of Messrs. D. C. McConnel and Sons, is situated on the Brisbane River, about 85 miles above Bris bane. It was taken up in 1840 by Mr. David C. McConnel, who also took up the runs known as " Rosewood" and " Tarampa." The position of "Cressbrook" forms a natural basin, being almost surrounded by hills, which nearly form a complete boundary on the east, north, and north-west. The property is very lightly timbered, sloping ridges backing up the alluvial portions of the land. The whole area consists of 40^000 acres, and is divided into 40 paddocks for cattle fattening purposes. The stock is fattened principally upon crops of barley, prairie grass, and lucerne. Some 200 acres are generally under cultivation. The estate is abundantly and permanently watered by the Brisbane River and its tributaries, and is thus highly suitable for cattle fattening.. In addition to supplying the Brisbane market, a great number of bullocks a...

Notes of the Month. Agricultural Lands Purchase Bill. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 August 1900

W* HHHHH Agricultural Lands Purchase Bill. fHMHMHHHH'Oy By the amendments in troduced in the House by the Minister for Lands, the Hon. W. B. O'Gonnell, very distinct changes will be made in the method of. dealing with offers of land for repurchase: under this Act, should the amendments become law. It seems, however, that too much of the huck stering. spirit enters into the amendments, and we regret that a retrograde movement has been made in delaying the settlement of an offer until it has been debated-save the mark-in the House. The Cabinet has the thorough support of the country, and could well be left with its advising officers to pur chase or refuse land placed under offer, witn out this, to us, unnecessary delay. It declares that for the purposes of this Act the expres sion "Agricultural settlement" shall be deemed to include settlement for dairying purposes. Every offer for sale of land to the Govern ment is to be "accompanied by a plan or description, of such land, for the pu...

THE RETURN OF MR. DICKSON. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 August 1900

THE RETURN OF MR. DICKSON. The Right Hon. J. R. Dickson is with us once more, looking all the better for his trip to the old country, and his familiar figure may be agaoi seen at the Chief Secretary's office, where he has now again settled down .to the routine work of his important department. Mr. Dickson has deserved well of Queensland, and the present popularity and prominence of the colony at home is largely due to his own individual efforts. The step he took in first proffering armed assistance in South Africa when hostilities were imminent be tween Great Britain and the two Boer Re publics was soon copied by other British colonies throughout the world with similar offers and the spectacle thus offered of the solidarity of the Empire has undoubtedly brought nearer the possibility of Imperial Federation, and indirectly paved the way for the almost unopposed passage of the Commonwealth Bill. On that great Bill Queensland has left an enduring mark, mainly through the efforts of Mr....

Mr. W. D. Armstrong, The Member for the Electorate in the Legislative Assembly. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 August 1900

Mr. W. D. Armstrong, The Member for the Electorate in the Legislative Assembly. Mr. Wm. Drayton Armstrong, M.L.A. for the Lockyer, was born at Drayton, near Too woomba- on March 28th, 1862. He is the son of Dr. Armstrong, one of the most widely known and respected of the Toowoomba doctors. Drayton, or it was originally call ed, " The Springs," is on the further side of the Main Range, a few miles only from the boundary line of the Lockyer, so that Mr. Armstrong is almost a native of the electorate he represents. Until he was 18 years of age Mr. Armstrong was educated by private tutors, subsequently completing his studies under that old-time tutor, Dr. Carr-Boyd. For two years Mr. Armstrong was in the Government service, being in the old Roads and Bridges Depart A Recollection of the Early Days.

PASTORAL STOCK AND STATION PRODUCE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 August 1900

smmmm ?eS*^ *"». ? #% ,f\ C STOCK AND STATION PRODUCE. As we predicted in our last, the market has continued to rise, all grades of cattle showing an increase in price. We advised then to hold for a rising market, and we repeat this opinion. Stores in anything like condition are very scarce, and are likely to remain so for several months. Estimates have been made tending to show that prime fat cattle will yet see jQ 15 per head, and we see no reason to combat this opinion. We advise to* hold for a much greater price than is even now ruling. In regard to sheep, we consider that the mar ket should be taken advantage of, for al though there will be an increase in price, ic will scarcely go much higher, and we con sider that such increase will not last any length of time. In reference to hair, horns, hoofs, or bones and hides, it would be un doubtedly the best to place them upon the market as early as possible. Bullocks : Extra, to' ^9 10s.; best, ^7 to £& 5s.; good, £5 7s. 6d. ...

Helidon. "Stray notes of birds, the hum of bees, The brook's light gossip on its way; And spring-time leaves all glistening In the breeze." [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 August 1900

T W A Helidon. " Stray notes of birds, the hum of bees, The brook's light gossip on its way; And spring-time leaves all glistening In the breeze." $ear Helidon, 72 miles from Brisbane, are the famous quarries of free ' stone, from which have been pro cured large quantities of stone for various public buildings in Bris r bane. A short distance away, also, are the springs from which the famous Helidon Spa Waters are ob tained. Messrs. Filshie, Broadfoot and Co., Toowoomba, have also large timber interests n.-ar by, and in addition to the enormous blocks of stone in the station yard destined for Brisbane, one sees great beams of hard wood bound for the above mentioned firm's saw mills at Toowoomba, 30 miles away. Heli don was originally a sheep station, and near by h the old route opened up by a carrier named Phipps, which led to the northern por tion of the Darling Downs by way of Dray ton, or " The Springs " as it was first named. As this route reached the foot of the moun tains, it ...

Outside the Rings at the late Toowoomba and Brisbane Shows. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 August 1900

Outside the Rings at the late Toowoomba and Brisbane Shows. (BY "SPINEFEX.") It will scarcely be disputed that the Too woomba Show Grounds are among the best in the colony. Indeed, all visitors from the other colonies admit that the site and the ar rangements on the grounds have no superior in Australia. The management'of the shows is faultless; all the officials working together as one man. Although the exhibits in the horse and cattle sections were not so numer ous as at Brisbane, the Toowoomba Show is more especially pastoral than the Brisbane Ex hibition. As a sheep show, Toowoomba is, and always has been, superior to Brisbane. The only sheep that have ever been exhibited at Bowen Park have been those judged the previous week at Toowoomba, and therefore Bowen Park has been the Privy Council appeal so to speak on the Toowoomba awards. This year only four of the Toowoomba sheep ex hibitors put in an appearance at Bowen Park. This was the result of some alleged grievance on the par...

"Queensland Country Life" (ILLUSTRATED). VOL. I. (New Series) BRISBANE, AUGUST 23. No. 6 The Tenure of Pastoral Leases. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 August 1900

" <®M£ttslanil Countrg 1£ife" (ILLUSTRATED). VOL. I. (New Series) BRISBANE, AUGUST 23. No. 6 The Tenure of Pastoral Leases. So much has been written about the Land Question in Queensland, without very much enlisting the sympathies or interest of those who are really intimately concerned in the future of the land, that it may seem like a vain hope to try now to> impress upon the general public that at the present this is, or should be, " a burning question " to the colony. So far as the people of this colony are con cerned it is so important that its proper settle merit will far more closely affect us for many years to come than all the aspects of Federa tion, for the land is our natural asset, and on its wise or bad administration depends the progress or otherwise of the Colony. At the present moment w.e are face to face with a position that might well tax the mental resource of the wisest heads amongst us for its proper solution. Instead of which it seems quite probab...

A MUSICAL EDUCATION For HALF-A-GROWH. The above heading will, of course, appear to most people as the height of absurdity, yet the absurdity is more apparent than real. It goes without saying that a finished musical education in the regular course cannot be had for half-a-crown, or even with several hundred additional half-crowns, but can it be truthfully said that the person with a sufficient knowledge of music to play accompaniments on the piano or organ, to all the popular and standard songs of the day, has no musical education ? Assur edly not. A musical education sufficient to ". enable one to play correctly accompani^; . ments to the songs sung in the home fre quently gets and gives more pleasure from the modest accomplishment than does many on whose education large sums have been expended. To the more modest musical education the above heading applies. Such an education this paper is now enabled to offer its music loving readers for half-a-crown, believing that it is the grea...

Forest Hill and Gatton. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 August 1900

?TV^T* Forest Hill and Gatton. From Laidley to Forest Hill and Gatton is an interesting, though short, railway journey, and gives the voyager some idea of the progress of the district since the sixties. At that time all the land about that part was station property, and not a small portion of it was covered with thick brigalow scrub. Now a handsome clump of brigalows at Laid ley is about the only specimen of that tree to be seen there to-day. To Forest Hill the line runs across a level sward, bounded on either side by cultivation and stock paddocks. When the writer saw it recently, the sun was just setting, and the scene was one to be re membered. In the background frowned the heavily wooded range slopes, fading away from a deep green to that pale opalescent blue which just serves to distinguish the summits of the far-distant hills from the blue of the sky. The foreground was a rapidly changing panorama of cultivation, with farms here and there, patches of timber and grass paddocks ...

From Laidley to Mount Berryman. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 August 1900

From Laidley to Mount Berryman. T was a glorious spring afternoon when we set out from Laidley to Mount Berryman, a 12-mile drive up Sandy Creek. The road to Mount Berry man branches off at old Laidley town ship, and strikes first west , and then south'by west. For the first part of the journey the country is not so rich as Burnside way, a different quality of soil being met with. Sandy ridges alternate with patches of good alluvial, all the latter class of country being taken up by farmers. Some splendid young timber is to be seen, and many of the paddocks along the road seem good grazing country. So> the country is until a distance of about four miles has been traversed, when, the creek valley proper is met with. On the left is a sharp, heaviLy tim bered spur, separating Laidley and Sandy Creeks, whilst on the right hand side are some splendid mountain spurs covered with heavy scrub-a future home for hundreds of far mers. In the valley the splendid loamy soil is met with again,...

MORTALITY OF INCUBATOR CHICKS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 August 1900

MORTALITY OF INCUBATOR CHICKS. The large number of deaths that occur amongst chickens hatched in incubators and subsequently placed in brooders is too' well known to require demonstration. With the view of ascertaining precisely the causes of this mortality, the managers of the Rhode Is land College of Agriculture have instituted a valuable series of experiments, and arrived at some very definite practical results. Amongst the poultry raisers in the State it is found that in many cases the loss of the young incubator hatched chicks; has been the sole obstacle to success. The report stated that if the mor tality during the first two> weeks can be pre vented, the remainder of the work is simple, and the expense of poultry raising greatly re duced.

ALLAN AND STARK.-Judging by what one sees around, the surprises of fashion are un limited, and revivals from different periods find great favour.

The delicate lilac, faint yel low of Laburnum, with the exquisite and de licate Spring green, are all imitated in the newest pastil colors, as well as delicate blues, greys, browns. ALLAN AND STARK can justly lay claim to having the finest and choicest assortment of Spring and Summer goods. They have shown especial care in their selection as regards style, finish, and variety.

Field, Orchard and Garden. FOR SEPTEMBER. FLOWER GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 August 1900

Field, Orchard and Garden. FOR SEPTEMBER. (BY MR. JAS. MITCHELL, Bo wen Park.) FLOWER GARDEN. Now is the time to repair, level, and fill up holes in the lawn ; the sun is working round, and its influence will soon be felt amongst all plants and vegetable life that glory in its full summer rays. This is a good month to lay turf, plant grasses, or sow couch grass seed. Sow the seed on the roughly-raked lawn, after planting pass the roller over, failing this make it level with the back of a clean spade. Keep the soil moist by watering if the weather is dry. See that the little black ants do not carry away all the seeds; this latter is often the cause of failure, and the seedsmen are blamed for the ants' depredation. If the ants are found carrying away the seeds, have the seeds slightly covered with soil or sand, the layer must be thin, if covered deep the grass will not come through. Keep the rose bed clean and fairly moist at this season, a handful of bone dust, or any good fertilizer...
