The Western Star. ROMA, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 1875. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 25 September 1875

Wt$\m JStar ROMA, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 1875. The inconveniences which are yearly accu mulating and which effect, not only the residents in the Maranoa but the whole of the inhabitants of those portions of the colony which lie beyond the range of any probable railway extension for some years to come, render it desirable that some steps should be taken to remedy the causes which lead indi rectly to such effects. Slow and tedious as the journey of the primeval bullock waggon is, its progress is still more retarded by two principal causes, viz.—continuous heavy "rains and scarcity of grass. The first of these it is of course not in the power of man to prevent, but the second is to a great .extent open to amelioration by a little wholesome legislation. It is patent to eveiy one that in these days of wholesale fencing some reserve along the roads should be secured to carriers (as well as for stock travelling to market)—the six or eight chains wide which usually seems to obtain, being o...

MR. MORT'S MEAT-FREEZING PROCESS (From the Town and Country Journal.) [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 25 September 1875

MR. MORT'S MEAT-FREEZING PROCESS (From the Town and Country Journal.) The banquet of frozen meat, at which Mr. 1 T. S. Mort entertained three hundred guests, on the 2nd inst., may be regarded, of course, ! as an advertisement of an undertalriiig which j may, if completely successful, return large profits to tho projector. But so many—in t.hia country and in the United Kingdom— one might say in France, Germany, and all the more populous countries of the world are in terested in the result of this effort, that the celebration of the arrival at a certain stage in achievement of t|||kwork cannot be passed over as an ordinaiySlisplay for the advance ment of a private speculation. It has now been demonstrated that meat may be kept fresh for eighteen months by the freezing or cooling process. And it may be assumed that the projector of the undertaking would not have called together 300 guests to witness, the success of the first steps of his arduous work, as proved by the preservation of f...
