DURUNDUR AND KILCOY LANDS. "Where one ever wanders, over vale and lea Over sunny meadows fresh in verdancy." —Morris. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 28 April 1900

DURUNDUR AND KILCOY LANDS. " Where one ever wanders, over vale and lea Over sunny meadows fresh in verdancy." -Morris. WALK of half-a-mile from the Woodford Post Office, crossing the Stanley River beneath an arch of 1trees brings us to the gates of Durundur Station. A struggling English,oak protests ^tb4ts:'£mall growth the change from its distant home. Far over on a beautiful ridge can be seen the groups of buildings forming Durundur Head Station. The comfortable men's quarters are com paratively new, but the office and stables date back to the time when Mr. W. Archer coming over by way of Cunningham's Gap and Helidon, crossed the D'Aguilar Range and built his home amidst these beautiful surroundings. Famous the station became for its magnificent Herefords when Messrs. McConnel and Wood purchased the property, but this is an ephemeral honour which would change with the removal of the cattle. What will ever remain to the station and dis trict is the distinction it has gained as bein...

Raising £3,000,000 A Year By Fruit Culture. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 28 April 1900

Raising £3,000,000 A Year By Fruit Culture. The following extracts, with modifications to suit our climate, will be found most ap plicable to Queensland: - The growth of fruit production, fruit curing and canning, and fruit shipping in California is marvellous. This product is shipped in immense quantities to the East, Boston often receiving carloads of raisins, prunes, and other dried fruit at one time. It was only a few years ago that the curing of California raisins was an experiment, and it took quite a time to perfect the preparation of the fruit, that it could be well marketed here in competition with the foreign product. Now the California raisin has quite a mono poly in many instances, and in its select grades compares favourably with the best foreign product. The agricultural resources of California, which were great naturally through the cli mate and soil, have been much improved by scientific cultivation. It is estimated that the total revenues derived from the orchards a...

PASTORAL STOCK AND STATION PRODUCE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 28 April 1900

STOCK AND STATION PRODUCE. The sales of fat stock throughout the month have shown higher prices all round.

For these reasons the price advanced 5s. per head, fetching from 3d. to 3jd. per lb. live weight in the yards. This will bring up retail prices to 6d. or yd. per ft). Pigs have ruled low owing to over-supply, farmers sending larger lots to market owing to a shortness of feedstuffs on their farms, which latter also has produced an indifferent qualfty of beast. For butchers' hides prices have ruled high. Single hides of extra stoutness, from 7^d. to is.; extra heavy, 6d. to 6\d.; heavy, 5 Jd. to 5fd.; medium, 5d. to 5Jd.; light, best, 5^d. to 5|d.; good, 5d. to 5^d.;...

The coach was loaded with parcels and packages of all varieties in shape and size. A wistful-eyed dog, caged in a barred box, surmounted them all. Several times the coach, lurching to port or starboard, tried to deposit the packages and passengers, in cluding the pathetic-eyed dog, into some deep rut made by the heavily laden timber waggons in the soft road, but we all managed to hang on, and by degrees I became depressed even to the level of the driver's indifference.

Then the Old Land said, "Youth is strong and quick, And Wisdom is strong, but mild ; And blood than water is yet more thick, And this Young Land is my child. I am proud, not jealous, to watch it grow." Thus the Old Land spake and smiled. -Alfred Austen. JUST 130 years ago-on May 14, 1770 could be seen a high-pooped, travel stained vessel swinging at anchor off an uncharted estuary on the eastern shores of Australia. Across its stern, dimmed by the spray of a hundred seas, could be seen a name now famous in the history of discovery. It was the " Endeavour," whose famous cap tain, Cook, cruising along these shores, had dropped anchor in the bay which he named Preparing Railway Sleepers, Blackall Range. in his log book " Moreton," in honour of his friend, Earl Moreton. On the 16th May he had passed Point Danger, now the southern most point of Queensland, and reached Point Lookout, on Stradbroke, at sunset. Here he wrote in his hist...

(3 (SK<m@e;. OOD Heavens ! is that you Carter?" 4' Yes, it's myself " was the quiet rejoinder, .' I wonder you recogr nised me; very few of my old friends do now. I suppose I must have changed a good deal," and he laughed a short laugh which had in it more bitterness than mirth. " Why yes, you have altered a bit, old man," said the first speaker, contrasting the shabby-looking thin-faced man before him with the smart soldierly comrade of a few months before. " When did you leave the old corps ?" he asked presently. " After that last affair in the Transvaal," replied the other a little wearily, "it seemed as if the old hands weren't wanted exactly. Anyway we were mostly passed over for promotion and so on, and besides it wasn't like the old corps at all. I hadn't the heart to go back, so I left." " And civil life hasn't altogether agreed with you ?" ' ? "Hardly. You see I was never brought up to business, or anything of that sort that's the worst of being a gentleman witho...

Horticulture. THE PANSY. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 28 April 1900

Hoftfcuiturg. THE PANSY. BY JAMES MITCHELL, BJWEN PARK. An Horticulturist's motto should be " Select the best of everything and grow everything well." This is especially true with regard to our old friend the pansy. To grow the pansy well the young plants should now be strong, healthy plants and ready for final planting. The bed should be well-drained, dug deep, manured with well-rotted stable manure, and boarded round so as to keep it well elevated above the surrounding ground. Dig the stable manure well down, and after the first digging add a good percentage of clean sand and leaf mould or well-decayed vegetable matter with a slight sprinkling of fowl manure and smithy ashes. Mix all well together, but do not bring the first lot of stable manure to the surface as it is liable to encourage grubs. If the bed is dry and there is no sign of rain, give the bed a thorough soaking with clean water the evening previous to planting. Aspect.-The bed should have an easterly aspect, and away ...

Field, Orchard and Garden Notes for May. FIELD. No time should be lost in planting all kinds of pasture grasses, wheat, barley, oats, rye, vetches, and lucerne. The English pota toes should now all be hilled up. Where cot ton is grown, the pods will now be bursting freely, and the bushes should be stripped daily after the dew has evaporated. Tobacco cutting may be continued. Prepare for winter feeding of stock by chaffing all kinds of green stuff into the silo. Where there is no silo building stacks may be made. ORCHARD. The riper the citrus fruits become the more care will be required in handling. Clean up all ground around trees of weeds and rubbish, as during this, usually, dry month; and well stir the soil. Trees, especially citrus, are apt to suffer unless this is done. All worthless trees should be dug out and all ground pre pared and left open to sweeten before plant ing new trees. In the Southern portion of the colony pruning of deciduous trees may be commenced at the end of...

Money in Hedgerows [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 28 April 1900

Money in Hedgerows The subject of turning our hedgerows to profitable account by growing fruit trees in them is by no means a new idea. It is true, it is very rarely practised nowadays, though our forefathers reaped a good harvest by growing cider fruits and damsons largely in hedgerows in some of the Midland counties Worcester, for example. Our farmers might do worse than resuscitate this old form of husbandry, or rather landlords might find it worth while to plant fruit trees thus, and so enhance the value of their lan J. Damsons, plums, apples, pears, and walnuts are eminently adapted for the purpose. Be sides, such trees would prove more profitable than the majority of timber trees growiag in hedgerows. Our Continental neighbours are becoming fully alive to the importance of planting fruit trees instead of timber trees along the roadsides. According to the United States Consul at St. Etienne, in Germany, Belgium, and the Duchy of Luxemburg, the system has been greatly developed,...
