JERICHO. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 9 January 1930
JERICHO. Christmas passed off ' quietly, there being a few extra people in town, mainly the advance guard of the Alpha contingent who turned up in full fore* for the races. Christmas morning broke cloudy, with every appearance of rain but during the day the clouds disap peared, the only place to get any bene ficial rain being Messrs. M'Laughlin and Company, Mexico block, which had 32a points on Christmas morning. Unfor tunately, it was purely a local fall, as places a few miles away had none. This fall caused the river to run, fllted all the holes and just reached the tows weir. We were, however, ? fortunate enough to have further rain in the dis trict on the 30th inst., the best falls being Widgeman 316, Gorfield 225 and Clunic *T«le 187. There were several other falls, about an inch. Several places in the district have benefited materially by the rain, 'vt others were not so fortunate. This latest rain, ha* again caused the ' river to run, and it fe «xpected the weir will be about...
JAMBIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 9 January 1930
JAMBIN. The rainfall for December was very disappointing, being of a very patchy nature. The total recorded for the month was 246 points for five wet days, making the total for the year 32.80 in., which, compared with the two previous years, is a big decrease, the totals lor 1UZ7 andiuzH uemg 43.71 in. and 45.75 ins. respectively. A heavy downpour is urgently needed to fill dams and waterholes, as many dairy men are faced with the prospect of driving their herds some miles for water. Grass is fairly good, sufficient rain having fallen to' keep it green. The cream supply is up to the average. Cotton crops generally are looking well and flowering and boiling heavy, but in some cases the crops are very poor, being very late. The heat wave last .week burnt the plants very badly. Some progress is noticeable in this [district for the past year. The roads have been put in passable order, and a bridge over, the Kroombit Creek on the Bellendean-road, is in course of con struction. The nucleu...
MARMOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 9 January 1930
MARM0R. . And so another year has sped. (Juuit resolutions have been made und somt already broken. The company saLill gets exemption for the quarry. There arc no public works. All this combined is putting Murmor on the map as a dairying district. During the- veaf four commenced dairying. Theu Mr. -Martin White has acquired big pur chases. Mr. Jos. Tlivvaitc's property. which joins his. 1 understand that h^ wilj commence dairying almost, immedi ately. There is no doubt «s to Ui-? future of tbo district. There are still a few who cherish the hope that the quarry will again boom. The quarry muy go ahead yet, but in a most un expected direction. A large body o1 men will never again be employed there. Our rainfall compare* tiivuurulily with other districts. For 1929 we hail 5'2in&., but unfortunately 40 ins. ten during the first four months. In Juw we had 4 ins. No rain fell for the next three months. October yielded 2 inl and thereby saved the situation. No vember and December g...
BLACKALL. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 9 January 1930
BLACKALL. The holidays passed off verjr quifitly, and business people report a smaller, return than usual for the Christmas trade. One or two minor accidents' occurred. Mr. J. Ryan, Flemington, had life hand' crushed in the. cogs of an engine, and. bad portions of three- fingers amputated. The new pastoral and shearing award is the main topic. The shearers and, shed hands held a meeting, to which only A.W.U. ticketholders were admit ted. It is understood that no definite decision was arrived at, and generally the shearers are satisfied. A little trouble may be experienced from the shed hands. A very old resident of the town Mrs. Eliza Ellen Jane Gill passed away last Saturday at the age of 83 years, after a long illness. The Diggers' Racing Club held a suc cessful grassfed hack meeting on New Year's Day. The gatetakings amounted to £40. Results:— Gallipoli Handicap — Adam's Apple 1, Duke 2.

EXPORT OF STUD SHEEP "South Africa Pleased." MR. ARNOLD WIENHOLT'S VIEWS [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 9 January 1930
EXPORT OF STUD SHEEP 'South Africa Pleased.' MR. ARNOLD WIENHOLT'S VIEWS 'The suggested prohibition of the ex port of stud rams from Australia indi cates a wretched spirit in which to meet competition, and is the negation of what has been preached to all our pro ducers for 10 years— that they should devote themselves to improving and in creasing Australia's exports,' said Mr. Arnold Weinholt. who reached MM. boure recently from South Africa by the White Star-Aberdeen line steamer Euripides. Mr. Wienholt has returned to Australia after his seventh big game hunting expedition iu Africa. 'The prohibition is quite futile,' he said, 'and that the suggestion should receive any support from graziers indi cates to what extent the spirit of enter prise has been sapped by a policy of borrowing and squandering. Parliamen tary control and interference, and the as sociated evils of bonuses and subsidies. It was in this same selfish spirit that the Union of South Africa, when, its ostrich-feather...

THE GIRL AT CASSIDYS. . . . u (For the 'Central Queensland Herald.') Little Bill Martin had brought in word of her arrival the 'day before; sandy, ruddy-faced Bill, a mere wisp of a man, pale-eyed, continually surprised or elate about something. He was panting with excitement when he rode up to our hut on that flea-bitten grey of his. Goose-rumped, calf-kneed, and with a Head like those one sees in pre-historic drawings, she was as blatantly ugly as Bill was unobtrusively so . 'TTtHERE'S a white girl at Cas Bidy'B,' he spluttered. 'Come down. from. Roma as barmaid. Fact, Ted! ...'. 'Better come in and have some tea,'' Ted replied, listlessly regarding him from behind a pannikin of black tea. 'It's hot, though the sun's down. And, I say. just remember that shearer's wife you sprung on us last year! — came in all lathered asid reckoned there was a white woman at head station, and when we all got sick and went in for medicine — ' he paused, and groaned : 'A woman? She was more like a s...
