Notes of the Month. Federations and Republics. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 January 1901

Tjy H t t t H H t H t t t t t t t M t t T r Federations and Republics. Republics, as republics pure and simple, have never proved wholly successful, but as federations they have shown, in the state of human nature as we know it (and which it is extremely improbable will alter either for better or worse in our time), the only way in which a large aggregation of human beings can live together in amity and prosperity, other than under a monarchical rule, whether limited as in the case of England, or despotic as in the extreme cases of Russia and Afghanistan. The first and most brilliant republics, in some rei spects, were those of the Grecian Archipelago some hundreds of years before the beginning of the Christian era. These, celebrated for all time for their arts, learning, bravery, and philosophy, though small in numbers, when combined were able to withstand the whole might of the Persian Empire ; and the won derful victories of Marathon, Platoea, and Sala mis, together with the deat...

A Song of the Farm. (President Harris of the Maine State College at Orono, in an address before tlfoe State Legis lature, asked the question: " What ate the farms fit for, if not for raising boys ? v His words were at first misunderstood, but after wards applauded.) A word to the restless people-to the fast and feverish age ; A perfect manhood is better than any wealth or wage. . Some are for gold^-some, glitter; but tell me, tell me, when Will we stand for the farm and the college,- t"fiat go for the making of mem? Yea, what is the old farm fit for ? The word is wisely said ; There may be stumps in the pasture, and the house may be a shed ; But what if a Lincoln or Garfield be here in this boy of ten ? And what should the farm be fit for, if not the raising of men ? 'Tis a scanty soil for the seedling; but here v e win our bread, And1 a stout heart may prow stronger where plough and harrow are sped; Then break up the bleak, high hill-side, and trench the swamp and fen, For what sho...

II Sir J. R. Dickson, K.C.M.G. Sir James Robert Dickson, late Chief Secre: tary of this colony, and Minister of De . fence,in the Federal Ministry, was born at Plymouth, Devonshire, England, on November 30, 1832. After receiving an excellent educa , tion in the High School, Glasgow, he was con nected with several of the great Scottish bank ing institutions. In 1854 Sir James came to these colonies, and for eight years was a resi dent of Victoria- On his arrival in Queensland in 1862, he set up in business as an auctioneer.

In the same year he was appointed Colonial Treasurer, which office he held until 1879. From that date until 1881 he led the Opposition.

MINING Mining on the Darling Downs. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 January 1901

Mining oii the Darling Downs. Mining in the Darling Downs district is chiefly confined to coal and gold. Tin lies over the divide between Warwick and the Border, where several thousands of pounds' worth was unearthed in the early, seventies, but this in dustry has for some time languished, although a revival is promised owing to the erection of dredging plant to work the drift on Quart Pot Creek. Manganese has alsot been opened out neax" Warwick, but with indifferent result. Coal measures lie at varying depths from one end of the Downs to the other, and outcrops are existent on the banks of the creeks in many places. Coal was worked for a considerable time at Clifton, but was abandoned owing to the distance of carriage to a good market. The measures, however, at Gowrie, near Too woomba;, have been worked with satisfactory re - sults for many years, producing an exceedingly clean coal at no great depth. The gold turning centres are all situated near the Harris Range, to the west of W...

Queensland's Loan and Indebtedness. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 January 1901

Queensland's Loan and Indebtedness. Queensland has already a total indebtedness. of close on thirty-five mil lions, on which the annual charge for interest is ^1,296,784, nearly all of which goes to Eng lish investors. This is a heavy charge on so small a community, and though the necessity for raising loans occasionally may be impera tive in a young and rising State, there is no doubt the old system of flying to the London money market on the slightest pretext has been much abused in the past, and we are now pay ing the inevitable penalty. Under these cir cumstances we are glad to see that the Premier has decided to try and raise his next loan in the colonies, or, rather, States themselves, whereby both principal and interest will remain in Australia. A bill has been passed empower ing the Government to raise a loan not exceed ing ^2,374,213, and Mr. Philp has expressed his intention of issuing the necessary deben tures in Australia for a portion of the amount. This will probably b...

? " The flowing meadows that glow and gleam, Where the wind sings hope and the daisies dream, And the sunbeams colour the quickening clod. And the vales sing joy to the mi-ty hills, And the wild winds ripple it down the rills, O'er the tasseled corn and the golJen wheat." -FRANK L. STANTON f. IXTY years is a long period in co lonial history. In such a length of time small settlements have become towns, and where once was solitude, , with its few charms and many short comings, a. thousand habitations now mark the country side. Such is the history of that great belt of rich meadow land known as the Darling Downs, which lies one hundred miles from Brisbane, on the western side of the Main Coast Range. Sixty-four years ago Allan Cunningham, botan ist and explorer, with a few companions, en tered what is now Queensland, somewhat to the south-east of Goondiwindi, crossing and naming the Dumaresq River on the 28th June, 1827, a few miles from its junction with the M'Intyre Brook, which lat...

Diseases of the Pig. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 January 1901

// Diseases of the Pig. O* By W. R. ROBINSON, Toowpomba. Under this heading one has not very much to treat on, as pig diseases in this colony are very few. These are the few that have come under my immediate notice. Loss OF TAIL.-This perhaps can hardly be termed a disease, but is a complaint pig breeders have to contend with. It usually shows itself during the first week of the pig's life. The tail has a dry, withered appearance, and at the fourth or fifth day drops off. The remedy I generally use is simply to grease the young pig's tail, the first or second day. In some cases you will find a small thread of dry skin round the tail, which gradually cuts thie true skin if not removed. This skin or mem brane is, in my opinion, the cause of thoi whote trouble. SCOURS OR DIARRHCEA.-This is a source of annoyance, and nothing throws your young pigs back so much asi a bad attack of scours. It attacks them at from 3 to 7 weeks old, and is usually caused by a sudden change of food to the mo...

Retrospect of Queensland Agriculture. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 January 1901

Retrospect of Queensland Agriculture. Reviewing the position of agriculture for the past ten years, it is satisfactory to note that, notwithstanding occasional bad1 seasons, with alternating spells of dry weather, a phenomenal flood in 1893, severe frosts, and insect pests, the history of the agricultural industry has been one of steady progress. This progress is especially noticeable in the cases of wheat, sugar, maize, coffee, rice, and. in thei products of the dairy. In 1890 the total area under sugar-cane amounted to 50,922 acres; in 1899, 110,657 acres were devoted to sugar-growing. Of the latter area 79,435 acres were crushed for sugar, and yielded 123,289 tons, whilst the total yield in 1890 reached 68,924 tons of sugar. The returns for the current season are not yet complete. The crops on the whole have turned out slightly lighter than those of the previous year. This attributed to the some what backward growth of the last few months of 1900. A rough estimate of the present ...
