'The Case of Tommy Tucker.' [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 July 1901

BY LEWIS S. MACBRAYNE. Tommy Tucker slept in the most comfort able chair in the drawing-room of his club until the persistent hammering of the carpenter sent to repair a door damaged bv the intoxicated coachman of T. Bertimer Blendhassett awoke him. When a man has played golf all day, and then led an eleven o'clock cotillion, he is quite ready to take a nap at his club on the following afternoon. The drawing-room was furnished extrava gantly, in the opinion of the carpenter, who looked about furtively while he worked. Mr. Tucker, who was a member of the House Com mittee, had passed judgment upon it several months before, and had pronounced it in good taste. It was furnished very much as a man with a large house and a large income would furnish the drawing-room of his own home.; making a small allowance, perhaps, for the combined experience of the House Committee. Mr.. Tucker awoke against his will, to find the carpenter still pounding, and frowned upon him with all the cold assuranc...

MINING The Minerals and Precious Stones of Queensland—Continued [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 July 1901

The Minerals and Precious Stones of Queensland -Continued BY WM, LEES. - fHARTERS TOWERS GOLDFIELD, in point of output, is the leading goldfield of Queensland. It is a portion of an auriferous and mineral belt extending for a distance i of 40 miles north and south, and about 70 miles east and west, which area includes the Cape River Goldfield, r Ravenswood, gold and silver, and the Sellheim silver fields. Charters Towers lies west of the port of Townsville 82 miles, and since its discovery in 1872 by Mossman, Clark, and Fraser, has produced, with a small proportion from the Cape River field, 5,368,317 ounces of gold. Last year's yield totalled 454,679 ounces (including 238,000 ozs. of cyanide bullion, worth only 30s. per ounce), representing almost half of the total yield of gold in Queensland in 1900, which was 963,071 ounces . The geological formation is chiefly granite, a rock which in places passes insensibly into diorite and contains very little mica. It is intersected by two c...

Thoroughbreds. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 July 1901

Thoroughbreds. Thoroughbreds are growing more and in favour , every day. We do not hear the man with the fine stock declaring that it does not pay to keep his stock pure. It is the man who owns scrubs and never owned anything else that ridicules recorded and pedigree stock. Nine times out of ten it is a case of sour grapes or woeful ignorance. There are men who have failed in raising fine stock, but look into the cause and you will invariably find that the fault lies not with your stock. And while you are pointing out isolated cases of failure in fine stock raising, look at the failures all about you among scrub raisers. How do the lists compare ? The standard of a breed is perfection, and to reach it is the endeavour of every careful breeder. This invariably builds up the average and keeps out the inferior or degenerated stock. A promiscuous, haphazard breeder invariably lowers the moral of his stock. To obtain good maize seed for planting plant a small plot with the hills 4ft apar...

The Central Queensland Goldfields. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 July 1901

?* , ? Tbe Central Queensland Goldfields. OUNT MORGAN GOLD MINE lies 22 miles SSW of Rockhampton, the chief town of Central Queensland, and with which it is connected by rail. The Mount is one of a sudsidiary chain of the Main Coast Range, which form a semi-circle around the Dee River, a tributary of the Dawson. The Mount proper rises up from the beds of Linda and Mundic Creeks* and was originally a great dome-shaped mountain about 1,200 feet above sea-level, and about 500 feet above the adjacent tableland. The total quantity of gold obtained from Mouilt Morgan since the formation of the Company, is 2,254,355 ozs. The' large area of ground that has yet to be worked, and the depth to which the ore bodies have proved to descend, confirms the opinion that there are yet enormous bodies of auriferous ore to be treated. . T0 describe clearly the extraordinary manner in which the ore bodies occur, without the additional help of an elaborate set of plans and sections of the workings, would ...

-9* MR. H. S. DUTTON.-SE R. HENRY STEPHEN DUTTON is a native of East bourne, Sussex, England, where he was born what time the sixties were nearing their middle course, from which it may be shrewdly guessed that he is well on towards his fortieth year. Removing at an early age with his family to Cowes, in the Isle of Wight, he lived there for some six years. Thence to London and shortly afterwards to France, where, in the romantic province of Touraine, he received an important part of his early education. Next came a sojourn of eighteen months in the historic and picturesque capital of Saxony, Dresden. Returning to England he entered St. John's College, Hurstpier point, Sussex, where about a year w&s spent. Subsequently back once more to France, where, after completing his education, he entered the service of that famous and ultimately notorious banking institu tion known as "L'Union Generale." Leaving the .. Union " in 1882 he joined another French bank of lesser magnitude, ...

PASTORAL Stock and Station. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 July 1901

Stock and Station. The decline in prices, of 5 per cent, merino, and 10 per cent, on crossbreds, at the London Wool Sales, opened upon the 2nd inst., will undoubtedly have a weakening tend ency upon prices upon this side, in spite of the fact that only medium class wools were displayed. In the local market, prices are firm for fine crossbreds, merino sheepskins, of coarser qualities being weak in demand. Hides are firm also, there being an active demand for extra heavies. Tallow, as we wrote last month, has fallen con siderably, and marsupials, which had, as we predicted, but a temporary decline, have re covered their prices, which are likely to con tinue for some weeks.

Riding In-foal Mares. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 July 1901

-r ? Riding ln-foal Mares. It would not be difficult probably to obtain particulars of a large number of cases in whicn m-foai mares have been not omy ridden, but kept employed at every conceivable class ot work to which a horse can be put, right up to the date of foaling, without their meeting with any mishap. There are some who assume from this that it is quite a safe thing to keep m-foal mares at work until uterogestation is almost complete, but a larger experience goes to show that such employment of the animal is fraught with danger, and you have only to search the query columns of this journal to find plenty of instances of abortion resulting from tne em ployment of mares at unsuitable work. Among unsuitable work I include riding, trotting on the roads, and work in shafts, where the animal has to start or back anything like a load. There is plenty of work the agricultural in-foai mare can perform with safety to herself and profit to her owner, such as drawing in chain harness ...

Shoeing. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 July 1901

Shoeing. Shoeing is, of course, credited with being the principal cause of contraction, asi well as of. most other diseases of the foot, and with some show of reason in this case, since shoeing un doubtedly confines the heels, prevents the natu ral expansion that takes place in the unshod foot, as well as to a great extent depriving the sole and frog of the exercise of their proper functions. Shoeing-and especially bad shoe ing-is also responsible for contraction in an other direction, viz., by the removal of the horn from the heels, bars, and frog by undue paring and rasping in the process of preparing the foot for the reception of the shoe, and in finishing off and making neat work. Hardening and shrinking of the heels results from rasping, and cutting away the bars of a foot already narrow at the heels, in order to . give such a foot an " open " appearance, is simply removing the only obstacle to further contraction, and rendering the wiring-in of the quarters a matter of greater...

TO CLEAN LACE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 July 1901

TO CLEAN LACE. To clean the most delicate lace, spread the lace out carefully on wrapping paper, then sprinkle it carefully with calcined magnesia ; place another paper over it, and put it away between the leaves of a book for two or three days. All it needs is a skilful shake to scatter the white powder, and then it is ready for wear, with slender threads intact and as fresh as when new. Tongues and Tongues.-The healthy tongue is clean, moist, lies loosely in the mouth, is round at the edge, and has no prominent papillae. The tongue may be furred from local causes, or from sympathy with the stomach, intestines, or liver. The dry tongue occurs most frequently in fever, and indicates nervous prostration. A white tongue indicates a fever ish condition, with perhaps a sour stomach. When it is moist and yellowish-brown it sliows disordered digestion. Dry and brown indicate a low state of the system, possibly typhoid. When the tongue is dry and red and smooth look out for inflammation/ g...
