? II Glassford Creek Copper and Gold Mines. From an excellent article in the Rockhampton " Bulletin" relative to these mines, we extract the following: - ETWEEN Miriam Vale, on the rail way line between Bundaberg and J feS Gladstone, and Westwood, on the illSMI Central Railway, there lie on almost kG/TV a straiSht ^ne three wonderful de, posits of metallic and mineral wealth. The most northern is the famous Mount Morgan deposit itself; pheno menal in its formation, its extent, and its money value. In the mining industry it is the show place of Queensland; an object of curiosity to all visitors to the Central District. This mine has been brought into connection with the Cen tral system by a short line of guaranteed rail way, 13 miles in length from the Kabra Junc tion. The most southerly of these great mine ral deposits is the valuable discovery of copper at Glassford Creek, which lies in the midst of a difficult mountainous country 45 to 50 miles from Gladstone. The shortest railway...

The Western Drought. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 8 November 1900

The Western Drought. The dry weather now affecting. the coastal country still continues in the West excepting a few" favoured localities, and the complacent coastal dwellers are becoming convinced that drought is a very serious matter for the colony-i.e.," themselves. The illustration showing the effects of the drought in the country adjacent to' Cunnamulla that we give in this issue will convince those who have the well-being of the colony at heart that the. future of the pastoralist industry requires very keen attention, and that immediately. It appears, however, to be pleading to the elements as to ask such consideration, and the drift policy will continue until commercial men on the coast realise the disastrous effect upon them selves in the restriction of expenditure upon the numerous holdings whose leases shortly expire.

Mining. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 8 November 1900

Mining. The Gladstone mining district is undoubtedly one of the most extensive in Australia, and pro mises to be the home of many thousands of miners when its mineral wealth becomes deve loped. It contains 24 district mining centres, most of which give employment to miners at the present time, and all await the advent of ex perienced mining capitalists to systematically explore the many reefs which have been opened up. On the head waters of the Calliope and Boyne Rivers, among the creeks which go to swell the waters of the Don and Dawson Rivers, tributaries of the Fitzroy River, in among the gorges and ridges of the Mt. Lar combe, Callide, and Dawes Ranges, are a num ber of small goldfields and mineral areas which0 have from time to time been the centre of considerable mining activity. About 15 miles south-west of Gladstone, on the creeks that come down from the north and south sides of the Boyne Range, lies the old Calliope gold- * field, discovered by a Mr. Brennan, who picked up ...

Shorthorns as Dairy Cattie. P. R. GORDON. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 8 November 1900

Shorthorns as Dairy Cattie. P. R. GORDON. Those who axe conversant with the history of the Shorthorn breed of cattle do not need to be told that in the days of Maynard, Wether ell, Snowdon, Waistall, and many others the cattle of the Valley of the Tees and Durham, from which the present day Shorthorns are lineally descended, were the best dairy cattle of any country. At that date " baby beef" was unknown. No bullocks were slaughtered until they- were of fully matured age, and cows were kept at the pail until their flow of milk began to fail through old age. It was there fore a principal object of the farmer to develop the milk-producing qualities of his cattle to the utmost extents Not only were the cattle of the Tees great milk yielders, but the quality of their .milk then, and lqng previously, was cele brated throughout the Kingdom as of the richest description. The butter of the district was said to be unapproachable, while the ^cheese equalled in richness the celebrated Double G...

"Queensland Country Life" (ILLUSTRATED). VOL. I. (New Series) BRISBANE, Nov. 8. No. 9 The Railways of Queensland. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 8 November 1900

" (S$umtsian& Cotwtrg Wife " (ILLUSTRATED). VOL. i. (New Series) BRISBANE, Nov. 8. No. g The Railways of Queensland. During the recent debate in the Legislative Assembly on the "Railway Commissioner's Bill," a noticeable feature was the policy of cavil adopted by several members-principally on the Opposition side of the House-towards the administration of the Commissioner (Mr, R. J. Gray) during his time of office. It is a recognised fact, that to please everybody is impossible, and we were prepared for a certain amount of criticism on the conduct of our State Railways for the year, but some and certain members of the House have seen fit to rail at the Commissioner's administration, and allege with that charming freedom and want of fact peculiar to the parliamentary mind, that a retro grade movement has been characteristic of Mr. Gray's term of office. We have no knowledge of the facts on which these critics base their statements-these things are known only to themselves-but...

Scarcely noting in our sleepy state the brilliant lights that shone on the many poppet heads of the mining town of Gympie, as the line wound between the mines, or being aware even that at gray dawn we had stopped a short ten minutes at that hive of industry, Maryborough. Sleep completely overtook us in our comfort able Pullman car as we travelled swiftly over the level country on to Bundaberg, where we par took of a well-served breakfast at the station dining room.

An Interesting Comparison of Railway Freights. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 8 November 1900

An Interesting Comparison of Railway Freights. In countries where the railways are not owned by the State, severe competition always arises between rival companies. From our American exchanges we take the following rates of freight on various articles of agricultural products, between the Pac.iffc coast, from fruit-shipping points in California eastward to Chcago, St. Paul, Minneapolis, New York, Philadelphia and to the south to New Orleans, St. Louis, etc. The distance between San Francisco and New York is about 3,250 miles, and the freight charged on deciduous fresh fruits with a mini mum car-load of 26,ooolb. is 1 dollar 50 cents, per ioolb., or say, 6/- per ioolb., and for potatoes, 75 cents (3/-) per ioolb. On canned fruits, salmon and vegetables, the rate per ioolb. between San Francisco and New York is 75 cents, about 3/1, and for citrus fruits, 1 dollar 25 cents, equal to about 5/- Potatoes are car ried from Chicago to the west, a distance of 640 miles, for 1/3 per ioolb.

Field, Orchard and Garden. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 8 November 1900

Field, Orchard and Garden. (BY MR. JAS. MITCHELL, Bowen Park.) FLOWER GARDEN.-As the winter an nuals die off, have them cleared away. Manure and dig up every vacant corner, and fill up all gaps with summer varieties of plants, such as zinnias, cosmos, amaranthus, coleus, bal sams, chrysanthemums, portulaca, ornamental grasses, geraniums, tropical flowering shrubs, etc. See that the ground is well worked and watered before planting, and, if possible, plant during cloudy or showery weather. Roses should receive special attention during this season of the year; do not overwater, but give sufficient to keep the plants in a healthy condition while they are making strong growths. Roses thrive best in a fairly stiff loam. A good layer of well-rotted cow or stable manure will be beneficial as a mulching. See that the soil is well drained to "prevent water lodging about the roots during the wet season, as stag nant water causes the death of many rose plants every year. In making a trellis fo...

'Training Sheep Dogs. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 8 November 1900

I 'Training Sheep Dogs. The best sheep dogs are trained from early puppyhood, and it is a difficult matter to begin with a full-grown dog and make him service able. In England and Scotland, where they are trained to the greatest perfection, the pups are reared in the sheepfold, and sometimes are suckled by a ewe. They grow up with a per fect acquaintance existing between the sheep and themselves. They see the daily work of their mother or of other dogs with the flocks, and by imitation they soon take part in it themselves. When half grown, the shepherd takes one at a time to the pastures where the first lesson is to follow at his heel. Very easily all the rest is learned in constant daily prac tice. To train a dog that has not had such advan tages from heredity and environment requires knowledge of what is to be done, skill in its application, quick perception^ constant kind ness, and much patience. Kindness may some times inflict punishment. The dog should be rather under-fed, so a...

Coast Country and Sheep. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 8 November 1900

Coast Country and Sheep None of the Western men seem to De enamoured with the Eastern country for sheep raising, and that only the direst necessity would induce them to send their flocks down again. The grasses which grow by the sea are not to be compared with those that the interior pro duces in such abundance in seasons of plenty, and sheep need the best grasses to be had. It seems manifestly unfair, however, to charge the coastal districts with all the losses that have been suffered through the shifting of stock. That there has been heavy mortality in some cases no one can deny; but this was due, not wholly to the quality of the feed, but to a combination of untoward circum stances. Many people kept their sheep on the runs until it was impossible to keep them chere any longer, then drove them to the rail way, and had them trucked a long distance, and drove them yet again when they came out of the trucks, after a ride of, in some instances, forty hours, to the grounds which had be...
