KILLARNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 April 1901

KILLARNEY. L ROM Warwick a branch railway line runs T through rich black soil downs and ridges for 28 miles to Killarney, a town which is fast rising in importance owing to the splendid soil in the vicinity, the belts of valu able timber on the ranges adjacent, and the ex cellent scenery which lies thereabout. Tn these ranges, the tastes of the botanist, artist, sports man, and all of Nature's admirers are satiated. The botanist is delighted with the richness and variety of the flora; the sportsman finds ample work for his rod and gun in many creeks and surrounding scrub; while the artist will find among; the mountain gorges charming scenes f n pencil and brush. A walk of four or five miles from the railway station takes us to the re nowned Killarney Falls, three in number, one on the southern source of Spring Creek, and the other two on the northern branch of the same creek. Upwards rises the scrub-covered Macpherson Range, while from the depths of the gorges pours out over rock an...

WARWICK. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 April 1901

WARWICK. WARWICK, the largest town on the Downs next to Toowoomba, is on the east bank of the Condamine River, and is* 69 miles from the latter town. It com mands the trade of the country to Goondiwittdi, 144 miles away, and the numerous stations and farm settlements around at shorter distances, such as Toolburra, 15 miles; Emu Vale, 17 miles; Canning Downs, 21 miles; Glengallan, Freestone Creek, Hermitage, Swan Creek, etc., etc. The distance from Brisbane direct via the Gap, which Cunningham discovered in 1827, is but 100 miles; this difference of some 6q miles has provoked an advocacy for what is termed the Via Recta line, an extension of the Dugandan line to Warwick. The municipality was incorporated in 1861, and is in area 24 miles, with 46 miles of streets. The popula tion is about 4,500. There are four excellent churches, with resident ministers-Church of England, Presbyterian, Wesleyan, and Roman Catholic-all built of freestone, of which there is a plentiful supply in the nei...

ROSE CULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 April 1901

ROSE CULTURE. (By A. Williams, Green Hill Nursery). Although not indigenous to our climate, there are few countries in which the rose has found a more genial home, and by a careful selection of the best varieties a constant dis play of blooms may be had throughout the year. A site apart from other plants should be assigned to them, if possible sheltered from high winds, but open, and not surrounded bv trees, as this has a tendency to cause mildew and other diseases. They adapt themselves to almost any soil if properly prepared, but that which is specially suited to them is a deep loam of a greasy nature. If such is not to be ob tained, then the best must be made of existing conditions. If the land is a strong retentive clay, it should be thoroughly drained, as in no instance will the cultivation of the rose be a success when the drainage is defective. Stiff, heavy soils may be rendered quite friable and their fertility greatly improved by burning in dry weather. To do this, all that...

Lockyer Agricultural and Industrial Society. THE TWELFTH ANNUAL EXHIBITION Will be held at LAIDLEY on Tuesday and Wednesday, 14th and 15th MAY. The alteration of date from July to May is entirely due to the wish of the Committee to fall into line and help the National Association and the Brisbane people to give a Boyal Welcome to the Boyal Visitors, by bringing down a collection of Lockyer products, which could not have been done if our own show was deferred to July. The Committee are therefore entitled to the consideration of our city friends. Entries Close on May 4th. The show is expected to be above the average, the season being now propitious. Trains will run at single fare for the double journey. The College stock will be well represented. J, FIELDING, Secretary, Laidley,

The Highfields District. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 April 1901

HAT may be termed the only branch railway line emanating from Too woomba is that which goes direct from the Railway Station in Russell Street and proceeds in a northerly direction to Crow's Nest, known as the Highfields Branch. It is 30 miles in length, and keep ing well to the side of the Main Range, passes through some of that magnificent soil which has made the Toowoomba district so famous for agricultural purposes. The annual rainfall of this district is usually considerable, due in'pzirt to the proximity of the fange and the thick forests which line the mountain slopes. To this and the fact of the district being settled upon by an excellent class of farmers, may be attributed the rapid progress made by the different centres along the line. Leaving Toowoomba the line runs through the northern suburbs of the town, by farm clad ridges to Pengarry Junction, 5 miles from Todwoomba. Here the line goes northward. Aiib Cawdor, 8 miles from Toowoomba, we left the train in order to see s...

Lameness in Horses. Its Detection. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 April 1901

Lameness in Horses. Its Detection. Among the causes of lameness are weakly conformation of bones, musclesj, etc., tissues being too' frail to stand the strain; the fetlock may be too long, causing an extra strain on the tendons; the hock may be too angular, predis posing the animal to curb, or too straight up and down, predisposing to spavin ; the hoof may show too high a heel, favouring contraction, or too low a heel, favouring corns; puncture, bruises, inferior shoeing-that is, fitting a shoe while too hot; having the shoe press r'pon.'tie sole instead of the walls; overtaxing muscles, tendons, and ligaments by pulling a heavy lead over rough and muddy roads; constant jerk ing and blows from the waggon pole and har ness-all these are causes of lameness. How to discover when a horse is *ame or where he is lame is not so easy a matter as some may imagine. It is best to observe the animal first standing. If the horse points per sistently-that is, places the foot in front of the norma...
