Woman's World. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 22 September 1900

"I love you, mother," said little Joe, And he gave her a hug and a kiss or so. But the wood-box was empty, and baby cried, While Joe ran off to have a good ride. : . - ... ,S "I love you mother," said little Sue, " I love you so much-you know I do." And the empty wood-box she filled with wood, And played with the baby till he was good, And the mother thought-ah, surely you've guessed Which of the children loved her the best. FLORENCE A. HAYES.

Gindie Government State Farm. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 15 October 1900

// Gindie Government State Farm. Leaving Emerald at 5.30 a.m., the train takes us to Gindie some 13 miles on the Springsure branch line. Before reaching that place the country on either side is one mass of Brigalow scrub until almost reaching Gindie, when the country becomes open and amid splendid scenery the train enters this most delightful agricultural district. A walk of two miles across Fairleigh Downs brings us in view of the State experimental farm. To the left can be seen the mighty peaks and rugged hills of the Drummond Range, includ ing the great St. Peter's Square standing out boldly on one of the highest portions of the range. Mr, Jarrett, well known to Laidley farmers, has managed the farm almost from its inception, now some two and a half years. A walk was first taken to the horse paddock, Mr. Jarrett showing a well in this part of the farm yielding what appears to be a permanent supply of water at a depth of fifteen feet. Aermotor windmills pump the water from the wel...

The Central Queensland Railway Line. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 15 October 1900

The Central Queensland Hallway Line. _ To those who desire to view one of the most wonderful parts of the colony, to visit one of the richest gold mines of the world, and to ascertain the reasons for the solid progress of Rockhampton, a trip along the Western Rail way line will be full of interest. It was late in the evening when we boarded the train that was to bear us westward; arc lights vied with the brilliant moonlight in the fantastic shadows that were cast about the arched railway sta tion of Rockhampton. All was bustle and hurry, but by degrees order came to the ap parent chaos, and we quickly steamed out from the station past lamp-lit cottage and farm homestead of suburban Rockhampton to the forest beyond. Gracemere, the old home of the Archers, and the pioneer settlement of this portion of Queensland was soon passed and Kabra, where the branch line 14 miles long to Mount Morgan junctions, was reached, 10 miles from Rockhampton. Three passengers were left shivering on the m...

The Districts of Queensland (6). Normanby.—Continued. Coal. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 15 October 1900

The Districts of Queensland (6). Normanby.-Continued. Seams of coal have been opened out in several parts of the electorate. One at " C'ar angarra," about 20 miles north of the Comet railway station, on the banks of the Mackenzie River, showed a seam five feet thick cropping out on the river bank, and appearing as if it had" been broken through by the river. An underlay drive was put in on the seam-which dipped at only a slight angle-and a quantity of coal was taken out. This was found to be an inferior bituminous coal, giving about 20 per cent, of ash, and the seam was abandoned, although, no doubt, if a shaft had been sunk to test the seam beneath the first bed a supe rior quality of coal would have been opened out. The country, however, between St. Law rence and the Styx River have had consider able prospecting done, and belts of coal several feet in thickness have been opened up. Mr. W. H. Rands, the present Government Geolo gist, in his report on the Styx River Coal Field, give...

Bee Points for November. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 15 October 1900

Bee Points for November. This is a busy month for extracting. If 10 or more two story hives are kept, apairists will find Cowan's reversible extractor about the best for this work. A two frame reversible machine if well made should last fully fifteen years; they cost about Queen rearing is often proceeded with during swarming time, but I consider it about the worst time, as bees raised at swarming time always have a pre dominating impulse to swarm; and queens reared in November, December, or March seldom produce bees that are much trouble in this regard. See that the brood nest is not crowded with honey, as oftentimes in this season bees bring in honey so rapidly as to fill the brood comb as fast as the bees are hatched out, and thus stop the queen laying entirely, and the swarm will become weak. This will give the robber, bees the opportunity to make a haul, and you will quickly lose the hive. This morning No. 6 hive cast a swarm with a virgin queen, which settled on an adjacent pe...

PASTORAL STOCK AND STATION PRODUCE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 15 October 1900

STOCK AND STATION PRODUCE. The results of the fifth series of Colonial Wool Sales, held on the 9th inst., came as a great surprise to shippers. It was expected that there would be some decline owing to the large shipments and the falling off in demand from the manufacturing centres, but as this decline was from 10 to 15 per cent, for merino wools in general and medium, and coarse crossbreds fully to 7 J per cent, lower. Values practically were on a par with those of 1894-5 years of memory to stockbreeders. We do not anticipate any advance on these prices as stocks are large in the Home markets. Wool brokers advise the placing of this produce through the local wool sales which open on Nov. 3rd. The Sydney weekly sales open on the 22nd inst. Fat cattle show signs of weak ness, prices during the last week having drop ped fully 10/- per head for bullocks.

FRUIT GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 15 October 1900

FRUIT GARDEN. A large amount of work is necessary in the fruit garden during this month. See that the soil is well worked around each tree. Spray where necessary to keep down insects. Watch the fig trees, which are just shooting out new growth, and where grub appears pick them off and put into the fire. Trees of a tropical nature-custard apples, mangoes, etc., should be planted, well mulched, and watered until they get a good hold of the soil; do not neglect the strawberries, although they have given over fruiting for the season; encourage the runners. To strengthen the plants for next year fill up a quantity of small flower pots of pieces of bamboo about 4 or 5 inches long, with some nice light soil; place them in the soil round the old plants, and peg a nice strong runner in each; water well, and in a few days they will be rooted in the pots. When the little plants are fairly strong and well rooted, cut the runners separating the young plants from the old. -In a few more days all ...

Transport of Horses. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 15 October 1900

Transport of Horses. The transport returns in connection with the South African war throw light on the ques tion of the best kind of ship to be used for horse conveyance. Two kinds of ships have been employed from English ports in this business-one the big open cattle ship, carry ing her cargo on the second deck, which is open from stem to stern, with the horses fac ing each other inwards;. the other the handy carrying ship, not built for the cattle trade, but carrying her horses in boxes specially fitted for their use on deck. It was thought by experts that the latter was the healthier ship, and that the draughts in the big open cattle ship between decks would be inimical to the health of the horses. The reverse has been the case. Two of these big ships have made several voyages, and their rates of mor tality are very striking : the " Cymric" has 2.4 per cent, and the "Armenian" has 2.1 per cent.; whereas of the other type the " Glen gyle" has had 11.4 per cent, and the "Per sia" 1...

KITCHEN GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 15 October 1900

KITCHEN GARDEN. Keep the ground well stirred around grow ing plants, applying plenty of water and liquid manure or fertiliser to prolong the winter vege table season. Dig up every vacant part ready to plant on the first appearance of rain. Sow sweet corn, lettuce, okra, pumpkins, cucumber, and melons. If not already done plant cut tings of sweet potatoes. Keep melons, pump kins, and cucumber plants well watered and mulched as they appear. This must not be forgotten, as if the young plants suffer from the want of water, the fruit will be ruined.

Horse Racing. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 15 October 1900

Horse Racing. Corrupt as the sport of horse-racing has unfortunately become in general estimation, the roguery practised is, we feel sure, very far less universal than is imagined by that highly respectable portion of the community which, naturally attracted by the inherent fascination of the sport, nevertheless holds aloof from it through a righteous horror and personal dread of the trickery with which it is so commonly assoicated. There are many rogues undoub edly engaged in the game, and many horses are not run to win. But few, save the initiated, realise the inevitable uncertainty of the game. By no means every case of in-and-out running is to be attributed to dishonesty-one instance will suffice to show what I mean. A horse is backed by the public (possibly by its owner as well, though of that they are unaware), and the public naturally expects that horse to beat others he has beaten before, when meeting them again on the same, or perhaps on slightly better, terms. On this occa...

Familiarity with Aboriginals and Half-castes. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 15 October 1900

Familiarity with Aboriginals and Half-castes. The recent tragedies perpetrated by the Breelong blacks in New South Wales recently, recalls to our mind* the familiarity with which the blacks are treated on some of the stations we have visited, and we would like to sound a note of warning to those (especially girk) who are brought into contact with this class of people. Girls often think that in being somewhat familiar with the blacks employed, they will appreciate the consideration with which they are treated; this may be the case with the so-called wild black, but not of that class who frequent the small bush towns and coastal settlements. On many of the stations this is done with the half-castes with the hope of getting them to do . some extra work, per haps, about the place. A few foolish words of endearment such as, " Jacky, you old darl ing, run up my horse and saddle him and I'll say you're the best chap I ever knew," over heard by or repeated to a jealous gin may lead to after...

No. 8. rj'J I It t H H H t 1 The Political Outlook o-' Parliament, which has now been sitting for over twelve weeks, has done practically nothing in that time, and the people of the colony are getting impatient at this state of things. The Labour party are without doubt responsible for this wasted time and useless talk, in their valiant but futile efforts to block the passage of the Private Railway Bills now before the House. It is a case of the minority endeavour ing to coerce the majority, for the recent division, alter the Callide Railway stonewall, showed plainly that the Opposition were in a most decided minority. But the fact cannot deter Mr. Browne and his followers, who seem bent on pushing their obstructive tactics to in finity. It is easily seen that this cannot con tinue, and that the Government must take some steps either in the way of a dissolution or a suitable alteration of the Standing O...
