POR many years Sir Samuel, as head of our judiciary could lay claim to be called, as it were, de jure the first citizen of the State; now that he conjoins that dignity with the duties of Governor and Vicegerent of Majesty he is de facto the highest personality in Queensland. For these reasons a biographical notice of him, addressed to Queensland readers, demands no more than a brief summary of his great career. Son of a revered Congregational pastor, he was born at Merthyr-Tydvil, Wales (his beautiful riverside residence in Brisbane being called after his native town), on June 21, 1845. Came with parents to Queensland (Ipswich) 1854 ? removed subsequently to Maitland (N.S.W.), finally settling down in Bris bane.

Home Notes. Recipes. PRESERVED PUMPKIN. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1901

Recipes. PRESERVED PUMPKIN. Slice very thin some bright yellow-pumpkin. Pumpkin squash is more delicate. Cut the slices into chips. Soak in lime water half an hour, then in clear water for the same time. Put into a porcelain kettle with a pint of brown sugar to every pound of pumpkin, a small root of green ginger, half a lemon cut into slices and pitted, no water. Simmer until the pumpkin is clear, then it is done. It tastes very much like cocoanut, and loses all the flavour of ordinary pumpkin. Cucumber pickle should be made before the cucumbers are too old. Peel all" carefully, cut in two lengthwise, and then into small blocks. Cover for 24 hours with vinegar, drain dry, and set in an enamelled pan,. and to each 2lb. allow lib. of good sugar, 1^ pint of vinegar and 1 oz. of spice. Boil all together till the mixture is quite smooth and cooked, and store in small pots well corked.

OR, Is Marriage a Fraud? A Tale of the Palmer Goldfield. THE LATE W. O. HODGKINSON. IK THE ANTIPODEAN. CHAPTER I, Ah Kim and Ah Foo were suitors for the person of Loo Choo, a handmaid of Ah. Chin's wife. Ah Chin was a wealthy and well educated Chinese merchant, carrying on a large business on the then leading alluvial goldfield of Northern Queensland. Sometime in the seventies a surveyor at tached to an exploring expedition had idly tested the wash of a rock-bound river, flowing through a country of such rugged, sterile as pect as to repel the most imaginative lover of the Salvator Rosa order of landscape. Gold, bright shining gold lay at the bot tom of each dishful tried. A plug of tobacco' rewarded the finder, and the party passed on, until the outer selvedige of civilised occupation was reached, and the new discovery leaked out. Then ensued a rush. From the west and the south, and along the coral-bound flanks of the eastern coast, scores and hundreds an<J thousands of ...

More Drought Lessons. THE WOOL PRODUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1901

More Drought Lessons. THE WOOL PRODUCTION. Seldom have the ups and downs of this particular branch of commerce been -more vividly exemplified than during the last twelve months or so. In January, 1900, the price of wool had risen to an extraordinary height, with every prospect, according to the best authori ties, of a continuance for a year or so. Now, we are told, Australian crossbred wools are at absolutely the lowest level ever known, and merino wools are within about 10 per cent, of the lowest point In one year, the price has dropped, in round numbers, ^10 a bale. In January, 1900, super sixties tops in Bradford were quoted at 32jd., on March 14th last they had dropped to i8fd. What makes it all the worse for the Aus tralian pastoralists, is that simultaneously with the decline in price, there has been a great falling-off in the clip. The total production for 1899 of Australia and New Zealand was 1,600,000 bales, as against 1,675,000 bales in 1898, thus showing a decrease of 75,...

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

A Tbe Western Drought. (By J. Lonigmorn, Winton). Never in the last forty years has Queens land suffered so severely from drought as dur ing the last six. Individual sections had previ ously been denuded of stock owing to> tKe want of rain. Maneroo station, for instance, losing some thousands of pounds' worth of sheep in one season; but never before was the drought so widespread and so lasting, and consequently so serious in its results, as in these last few years. Fully two-thirds of the stock, both of sheep and cattle, have perished during the last four years. York and Mount Cornish have lost thousands of cattle, and the once water-holes are now full of bones. Lerida and Dagworth have lost their sheep in the same wholesale way. In places the very roots of the grass have been dug out by the sheep in their frenzied search for any food obtain able. Two classes, besides the general public, are. largely affected by these losses. The squatter and the workman. It is quite true that th...
