ANDERSON (Mackay).--To make candied peel choose sound, fresh lemons or citrons, and cut them into quarters lengthwise.

Curing of Corn Fodder. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1901

Curing of Corn Fodder. (By E. M. Shelton.) To most colonial farmers the cornstalks, which carry the crop of maize, are worse than a burden, and a waste involving great outlay of labour in cutting and1 raking and finally burn ing, to the end that implements of tillage may be able to work upon the ground! after wards. These people forget, or do not know, that an important part of every acre of the maize crop grown in Queensland1 is the stalks which, when cut, as I have so often recom mended!, and! stooked, give from a ton and a half to three tons per acre of really excellent fodder, suitable to the wants of cattle, sheep and horses. Where lucerne cannot be grown, the maize crop is undoubtedly the grandest of all hay crops, and it alone is capable, either as fodder or when preserved in the silo of making all the difference between profitable dairying and that which does not pay at all. The expensive silo is not necessary to the pre servation of maize. This should be known by all. The s...

Notes of the Month. The Education Report. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1901

W T I 1 i I I I I I . I i i . . . . . ? . The Education Report. The report just to hand, dealing with the working of the Department of Education for the'past year, is necessarily an exhaustive and comprehensive one, and shows that miuch good work has been accomplished. The total sums expended amount to ^276,000; these figures, based on the dally attendance last year, show the average annual cost of each pupil to be ^3 14s. 9d., .as compared with ^3 14s. iojd. in 1899, proving that the ad ministrative work has been executed with ex treme carefulness, notwithstanding the fact that the work of the Department increases an nually. Last year it was found necessary to open nineteen State schools and 41 additional Provisional schools, in addition to which six new State schools have been recommended, and thirty-six Provisional. At the end of the year there were 911 schools in operation in the State, in which 108,070 children were be ing educated, being an increase of 3,190 on the previous ye...

AGRICULTURE Produce Markets. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1901

Produce Markets. In their haste to take advantage of the high prices that have been ruling, many farmers have marketed1 their maize in an almost wet condition, and for this material-one cannot call it feed--the prices have been merely nomi nal. Good supplies of all kinds of produce are coining forward, but there is a steady de mand, and we do not see any reason to expect a very heavy fall in general lines, although a decline will take place. Maize.-Prime, 2/9 to 3/- per bushel; second quality (green), 2/6 to 2/8. Chickwheat.-Prime, 3/- to 3/2 per bushel. Potatoes.-Prime, 6/6 to 7/- per cwt.; medium, 5/3 to 6/-; inferior, 3/6 to 5/6.

Parliamentary Prospects. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1901

Parliamentary Prospects. Experienced Parliamentarians in, the "Speech from the Throne," who are used to reading between the lines, can see a good deal more than meets the eye of the cursory reader in the speech itself, and those who have closely followed the debates in the Assembly will by this time have been able to form a fairly ac curate conception of the actual policy of the Government, and its ' chances of success or failure. First and foremost, there is a big deficit to be faced, and the methods by which this is to be wiped off and the finances of the State placed once more on a satisfactory footing is disclosed in the Budget Speech pre sented by Mr. J. G. Cribb, the State Treasurer. There are practically only two methods of immediately reducing the deficit: ad ditional taxation and retrenchment. Now that the customs have been removed from State to Commonwealth control, the only adi ditional taxation in the power of the Govern ment to impose is direct, and in this connec tion ...

To Farmers and Pig Growers Generally. N OW 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 faf, 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 - kmdly'communicate with us, and we will be pleased to furnish all par ticulars as to price.

Commonwealth Matters. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1901

Commonwealth Matters. That "monument of constructive legisla tion," the Commonwealth Act, about which so many nice things were said, both before and after Federation was actually accomplished on the first day of this century, has proved a bit of a disappointment even to its most enthusi astic admirers. Nobody can tell exactly how it is going to work, but already every State in the Commonwealth, and Queensland most of all, has experienced inconvenience, loss and anxiety, on account of it. Queensland perceives, when too late, that her sugar indus try may be absolutely ruined by a majority of southern politicians, while she is quite help less in the matter; Tasmania is in process of suffering a serious loss-very serious to a little State of her small financial resources-in her postal revenue, owing to the operation of the Draconic Postal Bill; merchants throughout Australasia are in a state of unrest until the actual clauses of the Federal Tariff are known, and business consequently is...

The Closure. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1901

The Closure. As he bad so' frequently threatened1 in the recess, Mr. Browne, the Leader of the Opposi tion, lost no time in endeavouring to get rid of those restrictions on debate which Mr. Philp found it necessary to impose, with the enthusiastic approval of the majority, both in the House and the country, towards the close of last session. These very stringent, though necessary provisions, were rendered absolutely necessary by the disgraceful tactics of the Labour members themselves, and in adopting them Mr. Philp was only following the prece dent laid down by that statesman the Labour party are never tired of holding up as a friend of the "people-William Ewart Gladstone. Looked at in the right light, they are not re strictions on free speech, they are restrictions on license, and Mr. Browne and his followers, if they ever bv any chance are called upon to form another Government, will be very pleased to have them if they have to face a determined and compact minority; There, will ...

CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1901

CHAPTER II. Ah Kim was a shrewd man, hailing trom the same province of the great empire beyond the wall, as Ah. Chin. Starting as a hawking packer from the nearest port to the mines, where the necessaries of life were measured out in returni for almost their weight in gold, he had thrived and saved until he had with Ah Chin's assistance put together a snug busi ness in one of the many offshoots of the cen tral township. Ah Fooi was a lucky digger, pure and sim ple, a celestial "toff." His earnings went largely in the Chinamen's beau ideal of a horse and1 its equipments, while he himself looked well pleased with himself as on each Sunday he titupped' up the mains street in all the glories of a young colonial's turn-out, with a cigar in his mouth audi a leering, gaze at Ah Chin's first floor window to see if perchance Loo Choo would reward him with a rougish smile. Of course it was no secret to Ah Kim and Ah Foo that Ah Chin had a waiting maid, a maid too discreet to be approached or ...

Croydon Goldfield. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1901

Croydon Goldfield. ROYDON Goldfield is reached by way of Norman ton, which latter town is on the left bank of the Norman River, on the Gulf of Carpentaria, about 25 miles direct inland. From here the railway line is constructed to Croydon, 94 miles. The goldfield was opened in 1884, but it was not until 1886, after some fabulous crushings at the Etheridge batteries, that it came into prominence, and one of the greatest rushes known occurred. The proclaimed goldfield adjoins the Etheridge Goldfield on the west, and extends South from near the confluence of the Gilbert and Einasleigh Rivers, along the Gregory Range and the North-west watershed of the Woolgar River, across to the junction of Esmaralda Creek with the Yappon River, and then in a northern direction to near Creen Creek Telegraph Station. A territory of about 150 miles in length N.N.W., with an average breadth of about 25 miles E.N.E., in all 3,873 square miles. The geological formations shown by Mr. W. H. Rands' (Govt. Geo...
