SOIL FERTILITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 9 January 1930
SOIL FERTILITY. The question of soil ievtiiUy is one, of perennial interest ar.'J importance, j but it is difficult, if nnt impossible, to 1 deflne cxnctlv 'iiiit fertility jeAlly nieans. It mny lie easy to say that the fertility of the soil is exi-rcs.M.'d by. its power to give increase, or by its } fruitfuhiesg, or its power of producing heavy crops. Ho-aovit, a little con- ' sideration on this point will slow that' such power can vary under different ' circumstances. . 1 For instance, a soil which may be fruitful in a moist climate may be too open in texture end too . shallow to be of high fertility v: _r £. \ -i:::.'.'.tioiip. The fruitfulnfES will also vary aworrt ing to the crop, and a slightly s«nv soil, which is suitable for a crop of English potatoes or oats, might be uii-( fertile for barley, which is more bciis'i tivo to acidity than either potatoes or oats. '? Another governing factor in the fer-J tility of the soil depends on the treat-} ment which it has received; and ...

?GAM' is second with a few hints JMS making ' brownie ' : Ninety-ninu per ceftt. of bushmen when making a cake without eggs, or 'brownie,' in the cake mixing method, beat the fat or dripping and sugar together first. Tn seen good cooks do this aleo when egge and butter were not available. when I esy 'good cooks,' I don't infer that bushmen are only cookoos. I mean housewives and professional cooks with ? reputation. JJext time- you make a ' brownie ' give this way a try-out. First, heat your fat or dripping until it is very 6t» or creamy, then add sugar and boat again. When this has been thor oughly done proceed in the usual way. You trill find that loss fat is required and the 'brownie' iB much lighter. When making a ' brownie ' in this way it is a good line to use a little less sugar than usual and add a good tuWceggpn of treacle or golden syrup to the mixture of fat and sugar. Thi«. also helps to make the cake light and is a good substitute for eggs. 'MAUD' sends 6ome plain, inex...

ORTOLO WINS THREE THIRDS. Unusual Performance. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 9 January 1930
ORTOLO WINS THREE THIRDS. Unusual Performance. The ex-Brisbane horse Ortolo won three races at the Christmas meeting An unusual feature about the happen ing was that he won them all in the same claus of race — the Third Division. Ortolo started low down the scale of weights with his flrstone. More over his victory was unexpected as he had been perfoi ining indifferently prior to opening his winning account. ?Ho won the second one in the mud against a weak opposition. This no doubt influenced the handicapper in leaving him amongst the third divi sion company, contenting himself with putting the steadier of 9.7 on ldm. It made no difference to Ortolo tor he was in front early as usual and held off a pretty fair one in British Ell. Ortolo will doubtless be taken better care of by the handicap per the next time he races at Cal laghan Park. j He was ridden in. his three victories by.Nugget Sheau, who hke Sot back to his beat form M the saddle. Ortolo Is trained by George Julin, and is ow...

ROCKHAMPTON NEWS. ROCKHAMPTON, January 4. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 9 January 1930
ROCKHAMPTON NEWS. ROCKIIAMPTON, January 4. Yesterday afternoon about 4 o clock Bcril Reaiiey (M), daughter of the pro prietor of the North Rockhampton aerated water factory, was watching the work on the premises, when one ot the bottles burst. A fragment ot broken class struck the girl on the right wrist, causing a serious gash. The Ambulance bearers rendered firtt aid, and took the patient to a doctor and back home. In November, 1924, Martin C. Ar nold was ordered to pay £1 10s. a-weck for the support of hii deserted wife and child. On two occasions he has been prosecuted for failure to comply with the order, the second being yesterday. Ho was proceeded against in the Sum mons Court by the C.P.S. (Mr. A. U. Scott), who explained th&t the arrears amounted to £24. Arnold pleaded guilty and stated that he could not pay any thing until he got work. He explained that he had not called on Mr. Scott, as he had just come to the city. He was in the bush when he received the sum mom ...
Heavy Track Excuses. Should They Be Accepted? [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 9 January 1930
Heavy Track Excuses. Should They Be Accepted? rriHEEK are any number of owners ana trainers who think that a few points of rain affords a cast iron alibi for any kind of in and out running of i their horses. The stewards have been partly responsible for the growth j of this idea by accepting the heavy track excuse in the most glaring cases. Morses whose previous form has been such as to encourage the public to back them no matter what the state of the track, have subsequently run races that were too bad to be true. When an inquiry has been held, it generally transpires that there was no .stable money on them on account of a doubt as to how they would 'handle the going.' There is no racing law' to make an owner back his horse, but the rules compelling him to allow it to do its best 6hould be vigorously applied, so long as the course is fit to race on. If this is not to be so then the sooner the Racing Association brings in a rule that there shall be no racing whatever on a heavy trac...
May Go To Brisbane. Horses That Should Pay Their Way. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 9 January 1930
May Go To Brisbane. Horses That Should Pay Their Way. 4 HARD luck story In con ''? nection with the Christ mas meeting could be told by Tom Stapleton, trainer of Oedipus. Looked upon as one of the certainties of the meeting Oedipus was unluckily beaten the first day. Opportunity did not offer to start again until the last day of the meeting. Not know ing how he would stand the track the stable decided not to risk any more money on him, but to let him run for : the stake. . Oedipus never looked like getting beaten when be started to trail Thor abbey, &n-j won without the proverbial 'bob' on him. Oedipus will be so high in the weights now that it looks as though he will have to be taken to Brisbane if he is to earn his keep. Another one who will find the local handicap too severe will be King Herod. Sbean's chestnut won only one race, but h« did it so well that the handlcapper has taken full care of him. In his present condition King Herod should find one of the divisions at A...
