The Districts of Queensland (5). Normanby District. O! is the world so precious to your heart, That you can spare no hour to linger here?

The Districts of Queensland (5). Normanby District. 0 ! is the world so precious to your heart, That you can spare no hour to linger here ? Do you so love the crowded, noisy mart, That you would have its tumult always near? Come, slip for once the trammels of the town ; Leave greed, and scorn, and bitterness behind. iVJfctr NE hot summer's day, early in January, 55 years ago, a small band of men with laden bullocks could have been seen slowly wending their way by mere and forest northward along the banks of the Comet River, one of the main affluents of the Mac kenzie, 150 miles westward from the coast of Queensland. Little there was about them to denote to the astonished natives into whose country they had come that these wanderers were the forerunners of the wave of a nation, which was slowly spreading itself over this, their old domain, bringing a newer life to those silent forests. Three months previously, on October 1, 1844, Jimbour Station, at the northern side of the Darling D...

Shows. Gympie. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 22 September 1900

Shouis. Gympie. The first day of this show was marred by a heavy downpour.of rain, but Thursday was as beautiful as an early spring morning in Queensland can be. Mr. J. G. Drake de clared the show open, apologising for the absence through illness of Mr. Chataway. At the luncheon, Mr. Bytheway took the chair* and the various toasts were well responded to! That of " The Ministry," proposed by Mr. A. Hutchison, was responded to by Mr. Drake, who deplored the waste of time that marked the deliberation of the House of Assembly over matters that could be quickly settled by the departments interested. There was a good display all round, except in the mining sec tion. The 2 South Great Eastern had some valuable specimens from the reef cut at the 1,200 ft. level, and Mr. W. E. Thomas ob tained a special prize for a splendid collec tion of various ores of the district. The following wjere the chief awards in the live stock:-Horses: Best stallion, Mr. W. Farrelly's Protection; for mares, Mr. V...

PASTORAL STOCK AND STATION PRODUCE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 22 September 1900

STOCK AND STATION PRODUCE. The market for cattle has shown an increase in prices all round, and consider that the high prices now ruling ! will continue for at least two more months. Sheep are firm in price, and we expect this also to continue, but for a short season only, unless a heavy demand sets in from the other colonies, which is quite probable. Hides will no doubt increase in price, marsupials especially so, each owing to the heavy foreign demand. The tallow market is weak, and no rise is expected in this commodity, as there is a large supply and the demand has fallen off. Cattle.-Bullocks, extra, 15s. to jQ12 2S. 6d.; best, 15s. to £9 15s.; next, £7 12s. 6d. to 5s.; others, ^5 10s. to ^7 5s.

The Position of the Western Pastoralist. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 22 September 1900

The Position of the Western Pastoralist. Although it is admitted that the rain we have had is not nearly sufficient for perman ent good, the sheep are booked for the return journey from the coast as far ahead as the middle of next month. The unfortunate pas toralist, however, is apparently between the devil and the deep sea. The sheep which went down in a starving condition for a time picked up on the coarser grasses of the coastal district, but the lack of nourishment in the feed soon became apparent, and the added trouble caused by the losses from grass-seed has turned the tide about as strongly in the homeward direction as it was coastwards a few months ago. On the downward journey the necessity for speed in getting them away was recognised by the Railway authorities, and accommodation provided accordingly. There seems to be much more trouble in getting them back, however. The bookings so far ahead is caused by the comparatively few which can be moved each day. Twelve thou sand s...

Home-made Guano of Unequalled Excellence. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 22 September 1900

. Home-made Guano of Unequalled Excellence. Save all your fowl manure from-^ij3n and rain. To'prepare it for use, spreaa a layer of dry swamp muck (the blacker it is ^the better) on your barn floor, and dump gi\ it*§he" whole of your fowl manure; beat it into a fine powder with the back of your spade; this done, add hard wood ashes and plaster (gyp sum), so that the compound shall be com posed of the following portions: - Dried muck, 3 bushels Fowl manure, 2 bushels Ashes, 1 bushel Plaster, 1 \ bushel. Mix thoroughly and spare no labour; for in this matter the elbow-grease expended will be well paid for. A little before planting, moisten the heap with water or, better still, with urine, cover well over with old mats^ and let it lie till wanted for use. Apply it to beans, corn, or potatoes at the rate of a hand ful to a hill, and mix with the soil before dropping the seed. This will be found the best substitute for guano ever invented, and n ay be depended on for bringing great crops...

Castrating Lambs. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 22 September 1900

Castrating Lambs. "Inexperienced" requests "a few simple in structions as to castrating and tailing lambs, and a little general advice as to the precau tions relating to the matter." The last part of the request is by no means the least impor tant, for when things go wrong after the opera tion it more frequently arises from the neglect of obvious, precautions than from any bungling in its performance, however inexpert or inex perienced the operator. The first precaution to be taken is to avoid letting the lambs get too big. Within certain limits--say 10 or 12 days-the earlier lambs are operated on the better. The younger the animals the less the risk from haemorrhage, and the less it seems to hurt them, both at the time and in its after effects. The difficulty here is that lambing spreads over several weeks, and if we wait until i*" is complete some of the lambs have got a* great deal too big. This makes it desirable -and it is not impracticable where the shep herd or the owner is t...

Tailing Lambs. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 22 September 1900

Tailing Lambs. With regard to tailing, I do not like docking and castrating at the same time. It is, of course, the common practice where all the lambs are operated on at one time, but the shock and haemorrhage resulting from the dual operation are sometimes too much for the young animal. I prefer to tail the ewes and castrate the rams, and leave the docking of the latter for a week. That excellent authority on sheep management, Mr. W. Sutherland, says :-" The tail is generally docked imme diately after castration by one stroke with a sharp knife; in other cases-and this is pre ferable-the operation is deferred for a week or two longer." There are a number of ways in which this simple operation is recommended to be performed, some of them, as regards the instruments, ligatures, and astringent applica tions suggested, unnecessarily elaborate. The shepherd can dock lambs unassisted if he holds the lamb under his left arm, slips up the skin of the tail towards its base with the fingers...

Bee Notes for October. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 22 September 1900

Bee Notes for October. This is the month that thei>ees will $f they have been properly managed) begin to roll ifi the surplus honey. Always see that all your tanks, tins, and other articles that are to come in contact with honey are thoroughly cleaned before ypu>^a^ /feSdzSfcfmg.. Take the honey from the bees as soon as the combs, are sealed up. Some people extract as fast as the* bees gather aiid storeybut honey taken under such conditions will generally be of poor quality; unless f evaporated by artificial means. All bits of comb and cappings should be washed, then melted down, and strained for use. Should you desire to raise comb honey, see that the swarms are very strong, and desiring to build, before putting sections on. The sec tions are generally built quicker and better if they are filled with first-class thin foundation comb. What is known as the one piece basswood lib. section is the handiest and most market able size for this part of the country. If you have any wea...

Field, Orchard and Garden. FOR SEPTEMBER. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 22 September 1900

Field, DrcM aid Garden. FOR SEPTEMBER. (BY MR. JAS. MITCHELL, Bowen Park.) This is a good time to top-dress the lawn. If it is rough, grasses and weeds should be taken out. Throw a few handfuls of bonedust over the lawn about the same thicknses as sowing oats; over this put a sprinkling of soil; see that the soil is not full of all kinds of seeds that will give trouble later on, and keep the roller going when the ground is fairly moist, if not already done. Level up, as recommended last month; put in cuttings of all soft-wooded plants, such as coleus, petu nias, verbenas, etc.; make sowings of balsams, zinnias, amaranthus, cosmos, etc. For summer gardening start the dahlias gently, and propa gate the best varieties. As soon as winter an nuals die off get the ground manured and forked; make all ready, and plant up for sum mer. If not already done, cut back shrubs growing out of place. If the hedges are get ting thin and open near the ground, cut well back, as they spripg readily into...

Our Agricultural and Pastoral Societies Mr. W. S.

In it he urges a general improvement in our Exhibitions, and a return to the proper func tions of such societies. " The several produc ing sections of the district should regard the Association BT the centre from which assist ance may be obtained, and to which such sec tions could contribute their help." Through out the article there is an appeal for co-opera tion in this much-required alteration in society work. The only portion that mars the list of practical suggestions made by Mr. Browne is the Government help that he considers is re quired in several of the suggestions. We con sider all that is required is good spinal columns of poker consistency in the members of the committee. Th...

There is imported of it into Englandfrom Smyrna, and other ports, thirty thousand tons annually. It sells at from ^12 to £16 per ton, is used by tan ners and makes first-class leather. It is also used for dyeing crape arid other silk fabrics a black colour. We hear the tree is being planted in Australia, and no doubt it would grow well in this country.
