Finney, Isles and Co. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 13 May 1901

Finney, Isles and Co. This firm throughout the month has been crowded out both in their sales departments and in the special rooms devoted to tailoring and dressmaking. The demand in the dress and mantle rooms has been enormous, and the goods we specified in our: last report have been replaced several times over by new importations. Of special note this month are the beautiful goods shown in the dress fabric department, especially may be noted the Colonial silk gauzes, spangled with sequins, in all shades, at 2/11 and 3/11 per yard; also a very choice variety of black sequin net, from 3/6 per yard, to some very elegant designs at 14/6 per yard. There are some pretty effects in evening brocade silks, all pretty tints, and priced at 1/6, 2/6, and 3/6 per yard. Silk crepon is a choice introduction, beautiful in finish and quality. This material is also to be had with coloured spots overlaying the crepon prices 7/6, 8/6 per yard. In cheaper styles the tinsel gauzes are very effective, a...

AGRICULTURE Produce Markets. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 13 May 1901

Produce Markets. There has been an excellent market through out the month for all kinds of farm produce, although the market for fruit is somewhat weak -a noticeable connection always with the com ing in of the colder weather. We consider that, though prices for general produce will be somewhat weaker in the near future, that rate? will not be affected much, and will keep at fair prices. Maize is likely to be in heavy supply, but a factor in the demand for this grain will be the new railway works which have been com menced by the Government, and which shortly will be in full swing; these lines are Gladstone to Rockhampton, Kilkivan extension, Nerang extension, Warwick towards Goondiwindi, and the mineral lines sanctioned by Parliament last session, all of which affect the market for pro duce considerably, and are worth attention bv the farmers in the south-eastern portion of this State. Following are the prices : - Chaff.-Lucerne-prime, 3s. 3d. to 3s. 6d. per cwt.; medium, 2s. 9d. t...

A DUAL OBLIGATION. (CONTINUED.) [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 13 May 1901

A DUAL OBLIGATION. (CONTINUED.) BY E. FORD BECK. Back among the Downs, just far enough, when the air is still and incoming vessels salute to faintly re-echo the booming from its white cottage-walls, stands the village of Twycross. The traveller upon the, drab ribbon of coach road which the villagers say,-though they have been there-serpentines upward to London, and downward over turfy undulations of chalk land to Portsmouth, seldom devotes more than a passing glance to Twycross, nestling in cop pices of hazel and beech; it is rural and pretty, that is all. If he be a box passenger and not asleep, his attention is directed by the driver to a large sombre mansion whose grey front can be seen frowning through the trees. The driver calls it "The House," as does every soul gifted with the faculty of speech for ten miles round. It is very damp and huge and draughty, and so old as to have become an institution whose dis tinction is gained from the mists of time,-and lost among them too, in...

Gympie Horticultural Society Exhibition. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 13 May 1901

Gympie Horticultural Society Exhibition. Few Societies in the colony will have cause to congratulate themselves upon their displays un til winter is over, for the effects of the long and severe drought is over all, and time has not yet allowed a recovery. The floral display, how ever, which greeted the numerous visitors to the Drill Shed, Gympie, gave but few signs of the long dry season which has just passed. The roses, miscellaneous cut flowers, and vegetable sections were somewhat bare, but the other classes fully made up for their sisters' defici ency, and altogether the display was a distinct compliment to the efforts of the Committee and its energetic Secretary, Mr. C. Brasch. The chrysanthemum and dahlia sections contained magnificent dislays of flowers, and the charm of the exhibits was added to by the feathered songsters which in the canary section made con- ^ tinned music. The district chrysanthemum prize (36 blooms), went to Mr. J. S. Bartholo mew, Maryborough. In the Mar...

Horticultural Society of Queensland. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 13 May 1901

Horticultural Society of Queensland. The Annual Chrysanthemum Show of the above Society was held in the Centennial Hall, Brisbane, on Tuesday, 30th April, and Wednes day, May 1 st. The Show was opened by Mrs. Foxton, wife of the Hon. J. F. G. Foxton. The Curator of the Botanic Gardens, and Mr. J. Mitchell, of the Acclimatiza tion Society, greatly assisted by a display of dec orative plants, the display forming a charming bower in the centre of the hall. The latter Society's exhibit consisted chiefly of seedling dracaenas,all raised from one plant. The seed lings were of various colours, and were consid ered one of the finest collections seen in Queensland. The Botanic Gardens exhibit in cluded a very beautiful lot of.ferns and fine foliaged plants. Mr. S. H. Eaves had an excel lent display, including six palms, the finest ever shown here, which commanded every visitor's attention. Chrysanthemums were, of course, the main attraction, but generally speaking were not up to the quality ...

QUEENSLAND GOVERNMENT LABOUR BUREAU. J. O'N. BRENAN, Officer-in-charge. THE QUEENSLAND GOVERNMENT LABOUR BUREAU is year by year growing in popular favour, and extending its sphere of usefulness. But, doubtless, through want of knowledge of its machinery and methods of working, its agency is not availed of as largely as it should be. What every Employer and Employee Should Know. That every Clerk of Petty Sessions and every Assistant-Immigration Agent in the Colony is a Labour Agent and his office a Bureau. That at these Bureaux all applicants for employment and all employers who want-labour may register their names free of charge. That these Country Bureaux are kept in touch with headquarters at Brisbane By weekly telegrams and monthly reports, so that the conditions of labour supply and demand in every district are always known, and when opportunity arises availed of.

The Illawarra Breed of Dairy Cattle, New South Wales. (In Queensland Dairy Herd Book.) [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 13 May 1901

The Illawarra Breed of Dairy Cattle, New South Wales. BY FRANK MCCAFFREY. Queensland Dairy Herd Book.) In entering upon the history and improve ment of this world-famed breed of dairy stock, it is by no means necessary for us to go back to pre-historic ages to find their progenitors. Pages have been written and books compiled by numerous authors to trace the origin of our English breeds of domesticated cattle and to connect them in direct lines with the various wild breeds found in Great Britain or Ireland by Julius Caesar or some other remote warrior of the early periods of the history of mankind. All that will be necessary for our purpose is to state that for a period extending over three quarters of a century, an intelligent and frugal people have been settling in the Illawarra dis trict, which locality was known for years after its discovery as the Five Islands. Prior to 1820 the English Government, as was the custom in those days, established a cattle station at the Five Island...

To Farmers and Pig Growers Generally! NOW that PIG RAISING is becoming an important part of Farmers' work, it is desirable that they should have a clear idea of what class of MEAT is required by the MANUFACTURER. In all parts of the World, and in this Colony in particular, the demand is only for LEAN MEDIUM-SIZED BACON. By LEAN BACON, we mean that a large amount of LEAN, STREAKY MEAT must predominate. To get this, Farmers must give more attention to their Breed of PIGS; the common ill-bred swine, which give so much fat, must be dispensed with. As bacon-curers, we recommend the medium BERKSHIRE PIG" which, properly fed, will, at 7 months old, produce the class of BACON we desire. In order to enable Farmers to secure this breed, we have established a stud at our farm at Zillmere, and growers desiring to improve their stock will kindly communicate with us, and we will be pleased to furnish all par ticulars as to price.

The Significance of the Tour. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 13 May 1901

The Significance of tbe Tour. Queenslanders scarcely realise the import ance of the forthcoming landing on May 20th of the King's only son, and the future Ruler of the Empire. It-was on May 13th, i860, just 31 years ago, that this portion of the con tinent was separated from New South Wales and erected into a colony, Brisbane, the capital city, having an adult male population of but 1,205; scarcely a building of any pretension graced Queen Street, and the mire of a wet day was fearsome to contemplate; while the social lie was just emerging from the convict influence which for years had been a dominant factor in the colony's growth. Even at the date of the previous visit of the Duke of Cornwall-then Prince George-and his brother, the late lamented Duke of Clarence then Prince Albert Victor-who died on Jan. 17 th, 1892, the progress of the city to its present import ance had scarcely commenced, and the Bris bane of the present day, with its wood-blocked main street, its imposing build...

Particulars of the Tour and Programme of the Brisbane Celebrations. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 13 May 1901

Particulars of the Tour and Programme of the Brisbane Celebrations. UGH indignation was expressed in Melbourne when it was announced, whether " on authority" or not we are unable to say, that the Royal travellers would make Sydney their first stopping-place. Of course, con sidering what is the central object of the Duke's mission, this would have been a mistake, but, whether the apprehension was well-founded or not, it was quickly removed by the announcement that the Duke and Duchess would go direct to what is for the nonce the Federal parliamentary capital. To make the itinerary fit in with local suscepti bilities and their Royal Highnesses' conveni ence has proved a somewhat difficult task, in consequence, the Royal party have to go back on their tracks to a considerable extent. Fremantle and Adelaide are relegated to the return trip in order to give the good people of Melbourne the first sight of their Royal High nesses. Then Sydney is given the go by, in order to bring Brisbane ...

Special Report from the "London Daily Telegraph" of The Departure from Portsmouth. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 13 May 1901

Special Report from the " London Daily Telegraph " of The Departure from Portsmouth. The egress of the Ophir out of Portsmouth Harbour is graphically described by the special correspondent of the Daily Telegraph, which, in connection with the preliminaries of the Duke and Duchess's tour, has maintained all its old prestige in the line of eloquent and picturesque word painting. No one who was privileged to stand on the South Railway Jetty on Saturday afternoon will forget the scenes that were there witnessed, scenes in which courtly formality was strongly and pathetically intermingled with farewells and tears, which there was little effort to conceal. The interst lay not in the pomp and pageantry or the gathering of distinguished statesmen and officers, but in the touching good-byes of a Royal father and mother to their only son and his consort. Among the guests, as in twos and threes they left the Ophir after lunch, there was an air of subdued sadness, as though the King's few words...

An Englishman's Views on the Royal Visit [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 13 May 1901

An Englishman's Views on the Royal Visit When the Ophir steamed down the British Channel there began a journey scarcely less significant than the great proces sion which was the central glory of 1897. This State progress, indeed, that has just commenc ed, is the obvious corollary of that earlier one. Four years ago the whole Empire, to avouch its unity, assembled itself at the headquarters of the race to do honour to its monarch; now the heir of the Imperial throne goes forth across the oceans that are Britain's to visit the nations of Greater Britain-to thank them, one by one, in the name of the whole State for their loyalty to its interests and ideals, not now proclaimed merely with words and cheering, but proved by strenuous fellowship in the grave tasks of war, Such a journey, undertaken for such ends, is Unique in the world's history, impossible for the rulers of any other Empire. The route the Duke of York takes, the manner of his travel ling, are characteristic of Britain and...

This season the tailor-made gowns are in the new Ascot tweeds, in turquoise, gendarme blue, mauve, grey, green, and tan checked with grey. Made to order, these costumes run from £2 2s. to ^4 4s. The ever useful cashmere, voile, and poplin are well to the fore, ranging from 1/4 to 3/6, and for softness and grace they are unequalled. The present mode of costuming, with its endless stitchery and tucking, necessi tates soft firm materials being used, and to meet this demand cashmeres, Amazons, voiles, and silkette poplin have a sheeny finish which enhances their value for stylish dresses. The sil...
