Plant Beans Eyes Down. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 29 July 1897

Plant Beans Eyes Down. Noting in a recent number of your journal an article on fancies and fall- acies in agriculture, I would like to give the result bf an experiment tried by myself. I had always been taught to plant lima beans with the eyes down, stuck carefully by hand; but last Sum- mer, when planting my Burpee's bush Hmas, it occurred to me to experiment. I had four rows 15 rods long furrowed out and manured in the furrow, all precisely alike ; two rows were stuck carefully by hand, eyes down; two rows were dropped the same as corn and covered with a hoe. The two rows that were stuck came up promptly and all at once, making unbroken rons the length of the piece, with hardly a bean missing; the other two rows be- gan to show a day or two later, a few at a time, and were about a week in getting up, and then were a ragged looking lot, there being many gaps.f Then the cutworms got in their work,) and the result was, those two rows were almost a failure, while the rows that were st...

Mr John Cairns has lately had rather a rest- less time of it. Nb sooner had hereturnecf from his trip to the South in connection with the transfer of Hambledon plantation to the Colonial Sugar Coy. than he had to leave for Townsville on another business trip. He is expected to return this morning. J. W. Stocks, one of the champion riders of England, who last week rode 31} miles in 1 hour 24mia 4/ssec, started this season with a 66Jin gear for road riding. When he took to the track he changed to 84 gear, and a week later went stilt higher, preferring 87Mn. Next week he tried 94t, and later on was Best suited with 98. _ He says he intends to try 198, and afterwards 119, because he finds it more tiring to pedal quickly on a. low gear than to push a high one. A Dram and Fife Band has been formed in connection with the Primitive Methodist Sunday-school, under the leadership of Mr M. J. Oreen. : This band, when it hu at- tained a state of thorough efficiency, will, take part in the open-a...

The Tick Question. The tick question 1ms occupied the attention of the House, and some of the the Northern members have been get- ting in homo thrusts which are calculated to make the Southern portion of the cdony squiim. Bowen Smith spoke his littlu piece on this subject, and wc ure sure that all Northern stock-owners will agree with him. He said that he did not wonder that members representing the Central districts felt warmly on the matter ; they had serious grievances. Ho admitted that there were great diffi- culties iu the way of reform. There should be a certain area of buffer-terri- tory. (Mr G hissey; "That is a mutter of detail.")

Malgrave Mill Matters. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 29 July 1897

Malgrave Mill Matters. In our last issue >\ paragraph appeared stating that the Mulgrave Central Mill would probably begin this seasons opera- tions about tho middle of September next. This was au error, as it is the intention of the directors to begin crush- ing about tho ond of August, and a circular stating this fact has been sent out to all the cane-fanners interested. It is anticipated that by. that time the mill will have about 17,000 tons of cane to put through, and to crush this the mill will have to work for one month at a shift and a quarter, and for two months willi a double shift. The first oano to ba put through will probably be Messrs Bo- wen's and Petersen's on the Aloomba side of the river, and after that Mr T. Maree's stand-over cane, which nth tho present time is looking remarkably well. The farmers have been notified that they will have to cut their own cane and load it on to the tramway, and it is anticipated that ! this course will do away with troubles and d...

Salt-Water Tram-Line Contract. MESSRS. SHEPHERD AND ARTHUR DRAPER-SUCCESSFUL. CLOSE WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 29 July 1897

i Salt-Water Tram-Line Con- tract. FTJL. CLOSE WORK. J At a met ing of the directors of the Mossman Mill held hst Wednesday, tenders were opened for the construc- tion of the Saltwater branch of the Company's tram lines. Tenders were received from Messrs Shepherd and Arthur Draper (partners) A. Suther- land, and A.Nixon. Mr Sutherland's price was £1007, Messrs Shepherd and Draper's, ,£1891, and A. Nixon's con- siderably higher. It was decided to recommend to the Government the acceptance of Messrs Shepherd and Draper's tender. The small difference between Mr Sutherland's price and that of Messrs Shepherd and Draper (£16) indicates slose work, md taken in conjunction with the fact thal Mesáis Shepherd and Draper were £8 or £9 less than Mr Sutherland for a section of the main tramway (although their tender was not accepted) leads us to think that the new timi of railway contractors know what they are nWit. Mr Arthur Draper is a cane grower on the Mossnrin, and has about 80 acres of sp...

QUEENSLAND. CROYDON, Mon. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 5 August 1897

QUEENSLAND CROYDON, Mon. About half-past eleven o'clock on Thursday night a fire was discovered in the interior of Mr J. Connor's drapery shop, Sircom-street. The flames had too great a hold to give any hope of their being extinguished. Attention was therefore directed to making a blank to stop the course of the flames. Shops were pulled down, and after almost superhuman efforts Mr Bohan's hotel was saved. The heat was tremendous, and at one time it seemed certain that Savage's, on the other side of the s reet, must go, when the result would have been that the whole of the principal portion of the town would have been swept from one end to the other. With the help of blankets and water, and in the face of the i terrific heat, .this waa prevented. One portion of thc , main block of thc town was, however^ burned to the ground. The total damages are estimated at between ¿xo.ooo and ¿£25,000. Thc premises .destroyed included Mr J. Connor, draper ; J. J. Brennan, draper ; Karl, confectio...
