COST OF LIVING. EARLY ROCKHAMPTON PRICES. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

COST OF LIVING EARLY ROCKHAMPTON PRICES. The good old times weren't so good after all, and the complaint concerning the high cost of living is not peculiar to the present. A correspondent to the second issue of the ''Morning Bulle- tin,'' published on July 7th, 1861, had a lengthy complaint regarding the con- ditions in Rockhampton as compared with those in the south. Incidentally he showed that the man with a wife and three children didn't have much chance of hoarding his money in those days. The correspondent was a southerner attracted to Rockhampton by the glow- ing accounts he had read in the south- ern papers. He came, saw, but evidently didn't conquer, for he went into figures to show how much worse his lot was in Rockhampton. He didn't allow for any luxuries, either. His calculations were that the cost of living in Sydney or Melbourne was as follow : — £. s. d. Three-roomed house . . . . 3 6 Four lbs. meat at l½d. . . 0 6 Three loaves bread at 5d. 1 3 Three lbs. potatoes at l...

BOOK CLUB [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

        BOOK       CLUB G.B.C.—Chancing across a copy of     John Ruskin's lectures, ''Sesame and Lilies,'' stirred a vague recollection of having at the age of 12 voluntar- ily chosen this same volume for ''free period'' reading at school, and of im- mediately rejecting it as ''too dry.'' I scarcely wonder at that decision, though now the same works can leave the deepest most glorious pleasure. ''Sesame — of King's Treasures'' deals with books and reading. ''The way we read, and could, or should read''— Tells us how, by choosing good   books we are associating with the most truly grand people of all ages and climes, but how we must fit our-   selves for their company. ''This   court of the past differs from all liv-   ing aristocracy in this — it is open to labour and to merit, but to nothing else. No wealth can bri...

PUBLICATIONS RECEIVED. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

PUBLICATIONS RECEIVED. Australian Exploration (by land) is edited by Professor Ernest Scott, Pro- fessor of History in the University of Melbourne. We published some little time ago a brief notice of the com- panion book to this, which embraced explorations by sea. The book really is a collection of 18 original narratives of the men who unveiled the face of Australia, commencing with Blaxland's story of how he crossed the Blue Moun- tain in 1813, to the epic journey of   Stuart from Adelaide to near Port Darwin in 1862. There is a very able   introduction by the compiler, and the fact that many of the volumes from which he obtained his narratives are rare — some of them are unprocurable — makes this book of special value to the man who wishes to learn something of the early history of Australia. The Realist: The December number of this critical publication is to hand   and it is quite up to the standard of previous issues. Of special interest i...

LITERARY GEMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

LITERARY GEMS. ''AUSTRALIS,'' in sending this along for inclusion in the Literary   Gem column, asks what could be nicer than this ''To a Nurse,'' by Vivian B. Beedham (Hobert): — Like stars that shine across a lonely night You seem to be, For stars through darkness send their rays of light And so to me You send a word of hope beyond all care. Like stars that shine. And as those lamps which twinkle in the sky You are divine, Because you bring a light of hope to to me, And drive away Those mists that seemed to loom across life's sea, Gloomy and grey. Like stars that fade before the dawn you are, Tired out and white; I watch you as I watch the evening stnr Fade through the night. For you have kept a long and lonely night Of vigil deep, That I might see again the dawn break light, And with it sleep Which comes and goes, not one whit understood. And so to me You are the purest star of womanhood That e'er could be. W. H. WEST says this above all: — To thine own self be true ...

Nature Students THE BERRIGAN BUSH. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

Nature Students THE BERRIGAN BUSH. When the tasks of the day have slackened   And the westering sun is low,   I love to ride to the green hillside, Where the berrigan bushes grow. Here the magpie's song from the tree top Rings clear thro' the evening hush, And the babblers call from their cool green hall, Beneath the berrlgan bush. There's peace in the glorious sunset, There's health in the scented breeze; And my heart at rest, in a quiet breast,   Gives thanks unto God for these. — KWEEZEEN. Leopard- wood (Flindersia Strez- elecziana). Sent by Nell M'Laugh- lin, Buckleton, Springsure. (No. of points 5.) ''SPES''.— The old saying ''Go to the ant thou sluggard, consider her ways and be wise' certainly holds a lot of sound advice. But can any nature student tell if ants seal the openings to their nests so as to make them watertight?

FUR FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

FUR FARMING. In view of the Canadian fur trade reference is made by the Royal Bank of Canada to the breeding of certain fur- bearing animals in captivity. It says the first record of domestic rear- ing of these animals in Canada was in 1878. The most important branch   of fur farming in the Dominion is the raising of silver fox; as they are rare and as imitation is practically impos- sible, their value fluctuates little with changes in fashion. The largest num- ber of fox farms are in Quebec and in Prince Edward Island, where the in- dustry originated, but the industry is represented in every province. Up to the present time, the largest part of the returns from these fox farms has been obtained from the sale of stock for   breeding purposes. The value of the animals sold in 1927 was 2,500,000 dol- lars, compared with a value of 2,000,000 dollars for the pelts sold during the year. Other fur-bearing animals are   being raised in farms in Canada...

RABBIT BOARD. QUESTION OF ABOLITION. ROCKHAMPTON, January 13. At the meeting of the Gregory North Rabbit Board held in Boulia, on De- cember 20th, important business was dealt with. Only three members were present :— Messrs. J. G. Scholefield, (chairman), A. L. Banning and J. R. Coghlan. The outward correspondence includ ed a lengthy letter to the Minister for Lands to the effect that his communi- cation of October 3rd, had been care fully considered by the Board, and they had come to the conclusion that the abolition of the Board would not be considered until the report of the Com- mission on rabbit and dingo pests had been submitted. This would not be for six or eight months. Meanwhile,     no advice or financial assistance would be given the Board. As instructed, they had ceased to maintain the western border and southern boundary fences, and had taken steps to pay off all men employed thereon. The only other   fence left to maintain was the...

DYSENTERY CURES. QUEENSLAND TREES. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

DYSENTERY CURES. QUEENSLAND TREES. The following are trees found in Queensland which are credited by Mr. F. M. Bailey, C.M.G., F.L.S., with pos- sessing curative qualities in cases of dysentery : — Grewia Polygama : Native names, '' Koolin '' (Cloncurry), '' Pam-moo ''   (Cooktown), ''Ourarie '' (Cleveland   Bay), and ''Kou-mung'' (Middle Morehead River). An erect shrub bearing male and female flowers in same plant. Its fruit is eaten by natives. Brucea sumatrana : Seeds very bitter, and known as ' 'Macassar beans.' ' Eucalyptus Laemastoma : Known also as white gum and scribbly gum. The gum from the tree is used. Casuarina equisetifolia : Known also as beach she-oak. The bark, accord- ing to Dr. Gibson, is an excellent as- tringent, and may be used with advant- age in chronic cases of diarrhoea and dysentery. Cymbidium albuciflorum : Native names '' Dampy-ampy '' (Port Curtis and ''Bunkiam'' (Tully River). Roth says that the natives stewed the pseudo- &...

HISTORY IN SHIES. THE ARIADNE. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

HISTORY IN SHIPS. (By ''Junius.'') THE ARIADNE. The following report is from the ''Morning Bulletin,.'' of October 4 1862.: — Captain Patullo reports that the emigrant ship, Ariadne, full of pas- sengers, was off the bar yesterday morning, where she had been for three days previously. Captain Patullo supplied the ship with 10 bags of potatoes, and Captain Knight, who spoke the vessel about the same time, with two sheep.   EXPLORING THE CHANNEL The mate and a boat's crew had been a considerable distance up the bay, with the hope of finding a pas- sage for the ship. At the same time we learn Mr. Sheridan was in the bay and thought he heard the report of a gun, and had it been sus- pected, the vessel would attempt the South — Wide Bay — entrance, he would no doubt have proceeded to the bar. Captain Patullo put a man on board the ship yesterday, to pilot her into the harbour via Hervey's Bay, and Mr. Sheridan will proceed to sea by one of to-day's steamers, in order to boar...

FARM AND FIELD. ANIMAL NUTRITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

FARM AND FIELD. ANIMAL NUTRITION. One of the most important scientific research works entered upon in Aus- tralia of recent years is that of animal nutrition by the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research in its laboratory at Adelaide, South Australia. When we realise to what extent Australia relies on her pastures, her flocks and herds of livestock, no one will say that it is an untimely institution. Economic primary production is undoubtedly the basis on which our wellbeing rests, and will continue to rest for many years, and it is our duty to make a general survey of our vast country and explore the many avenues by which we may confidently expect to economically main- The Royal Agricultural Show, Harrog ate, Yorkshire, 1929.— Dorset Down Ram, Shearling.

Just across on the opposite bank of the creek from our old home, a little shear- ing shed used to stand. We were amazed, one hot morning, to see it suddenly burst into flame on the corner facing the house, the fire apparently attacking the wall from outside. We rushed across and were very much surprised to find that the fire had been started by two bottles lying close together on an old bag. They had somehow acted under the heat of the sun as a burning glass. Considering the thirsty nature of our climate, and the number of ''dead ma- rines '' about the bush and the paddocks, it's little wonder that fires start in the hot weathe...
