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. «J. G. HUTTON &, CO., HAM AND BACON CURERS, ZILLMERE AND B...

The Case of Tommy Tucker. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1901

The Case of Tommy Tucker. (By Lewis E. MacBayne.) " Glorious!" exclaimed the girl in the pale blue gown as she stepped into the ball-room on the arm of Mr. Reginald Flower, the youngest of the twenty ushers at the Charity Ball. "-Isn't it?" responded Mr. Flower, with the deep conviction that there could be no more beautiful creature than she whom he now had the honour of presenting to the receiving party. " And who was able to plan all this ? " asked the girl, who was experiencing the joys of her first social season. " Tommy Tucker," replied Mr. Flower promptly. " He is the chief usher, you know." The maiden gave a happy sigh that depre cated the possibility of finding words to ex press any proper appreciation of Mr. Tucker. And, indeed, Tommy Tucker had fairly sur passed himself as a social organiser upon this occasion. The sides of the ball-room were lined with groves of lofty palms; the very air was pink from the countless shaded incandes cent lamps, and vibrated continually with...

The Hodgkinson Goldfield. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1901

The Hodgkinson Goldfield. HE rich belt of gold-bearing country known as the Hodg kinson Goldfield stretches from the south of the Third Walsh River, or Emu Creek, for over 60 miles northward to the Mitchell River, and westward from Granite Creek -the principal tributary of the Barron River-for about " 36 miles, to the boundary of the Walsh and Tinaroo ^§*4 mining districts. The field was opened up in 1875 by a party of eight prospectors -J. V. Mulligan, one of the prospectors of the rich Palmer Gold field; W. 0. Hodgkinson, one-time Minister for Mines; E. Kayser, J. Dorsey, and four others, who discovered gold in what is now known as the Hodgkinson River. The field was quickly occupied, and finds at Northcote and the Eastern Hodgkinson rapidly swelled the population. To the end1 of 1879 upwards of 103,950 ozs. of gold were obtained from alluvial drifts and from the rich reefs that were opened up in the adjacent country. After several years the field became almost abandoned, and a lo...

Cloncurry Goldfield. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1901

Cloncurry Goldfield. This rich mineral centre is 280 miles westward of Hughenden, the terminus of the Northern Railway line from Townsville, and 200 miles South of Normanton, on the Gulf of Carpentaria. Magnificent pastoral country surrounds the town of Cloncurry stretching for hun dreds of miles in all directions; but its chief interest lies in the ex tensive copper lodes adjacent to the town, of which extended reference is made in the article upon copper. The mineral wealth in this district now lying dormant, awaiting the advent of railway communication, is something enormous. The whole of the Mackinlay Ranges are more or less metalliferous, and contain gold, silver, copper, lead, bismuth, manganese (psilomelane) and tin ore. Magnificent opals have also been discovered in the adjacent sandstone country, of a size and beauty scarcely equalled in Queensland; while some fine almandine garnets, Labrador feldspar of the beautiful iridescent variety used in jewellery-and rubies, have be...

Notes Month. Dr. Maxwell and the Sugar Problem. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1901

Dr. Maxwell and the Sugar Problem. The long looked- for re port from Dr. Maxwell on the sugar industry has at )ast been produced, and forms a, most inter esting study to those interested in this most important producing industry. To those who have been seeking for light on this subject, and especially to those of our legislators who have the power to deal with the question, the conviction must at last be strongly brought home that we must have coloured labour in North Queensland to successfully grow sugar. In preparing his report the Doctor has very wisely taken the varying climatic conditions in the districts where sugar is grown into con sideration, pointing out that the temperature of the New South Wales districts is 17-8 lower than the average sugar districts of Queensland, and 20 degrees lower than the northernmost district,-that of Cairns. In 1899 the weight of cane grown in New South Wales was only 170,599 tons, whilst in this State it was 1,176,466 tons. Over r 10,000 acres ...

[Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1901

Side Lights on the South African Campaign. u Oh, there'll surely come a day When they'll give you all your pay, And treat you as a Christian ought to do; So until that day comes round, Heaven keep you safe and sound And, Thomas, here's my best respects to you -Rudyard Kipling. We have heard, and seen it in English print, a great deal.of the savage brutality and vio lence over the poor defenceless Boer commit ted bv the British soldier in South Africa, but we see little of the many acts of kindness that " untrained monster " shows towards his enemy and often under circumstances when he has all the more reason to deal roughly with him. No doubt it is because the majority of right think ing people ignore the lies that are spread abroad, for lies they are. But one cannot sit down and merely smile at speeches made pub lic and scattered broadcast over the globe without feeling a keen desire to be able to have a " quiet talk " with those whoi are re sponsible for such utterances.

PASTORAL Stock and Station. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1901

Stock and Station. The latest markets show that the competi tion or prime cattle has caused a rise in best beef to about 20/- per 100 5). Sheep values are slightly easier, though extra prime crpssbreds topped the market at 20/-. In the absence of public sales both here and1 in London the wool market is very quiet. The first contingent of buyers from London have now arrived, and as nearly the whole of the old stocks stored in this market have gone into consumption, catalogues for coming local sales should be very attractive, consisting al most entirely of new clips. There is a rise of 2/6 per ton in tallow, but as the season advances it will probably become easier. Other station produce continues firm in price, and we believe that the prosperous times for stock holders will continue.

GALTEE MORE'S STRANGE PEDIGREE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1901

GALTEE MORE'S STRANGE PEDIGREE. The " Daily Chronicle" tells the story of the strange and romantic history of the an cestral line of this year's Derby winner, Galtee More. The story begins with Scham, which formed one of eight Arabs sent to Louis XV. King of France by the Bey of Tunis, in 1728. The ill-treatment which he received there, and his* subsequent transference to Francis Lord Godolphin, it is unnecessary to follow in de tail. Suffice it to say that he was sent in charge of his faithful groom, Agba, to the Gog Magog Hills of Cambridgeshire, while the mare Ro^xana, a fine specimen of her kind, was tenanting a paddock with a big white stallion, named Hobgoblin. As soon as Scham and Agba reached their new home in Cam bridgeshire, the1 Moor hoped! that at last his noble charge was about to attain the position he deserved; but, being unable to speak amy language save bis own, he could not fittingly expostulate when he discovered that Scham's duties were to be far from what he ima...

Mon. dr. "W. (srPa^, M. IaC. s. Jt A'AV J 6 3HE Hon. G. W. Gray, M.L.C., has been a resident of Queensland, and closely identified with this State, for the past 38 years. He was born in Sydney, N.S.W., in 1844, and it was in the Southern States that he received his education, his first visit to Queensland being in the year 1863, when he opened his commercial career with the firm of Fattorini and Company, stock and station agents, of Ipswich. For some time Mr. Gray' identified himself with the above-mentioned firm, subsequently entering the office of Daniel Weinholtand Co., which firm, in 1867 (on ^e death of Mr. Weinholt), became known as Clarke, Hodgson and Co. After four busy years in Ipswich, Mr. Gray came to Brisbane, when he established and managed a branch of Messrs Clarke, Hodgson and Co. The premises of the firm at that time were those of the Queensland Steam Navigation Company's wharves and stores, Eagle and Mary Streets, now owned by the A.U.S.N. Company. This step may wel...
