LIFE IN NORTH QUEENSLAND.I
LIFE IN NORTH QUEENSLAND. I Old Ledbury Boy's Impressions. We have this week received a long letter j from Mr George T Smith, of Waverley Hotel, Charters Towers, North Queensland, Australia, a son of Mr George Smith, ?" carpenter, formerly of New Bridge Street, Ledbury, who with his wife and family emigrated to Australia some years ago. We have previously reproduced letters sent by Mr Smith, jun., to Ledbury friends, and we have pleasure in giving the following letter from the same writer addressed to the editor Sir,- You will, no doubt, be surprised to hear from me direct, but I will explain my reason for writing. It is now three years since I left dear old Ledbury with my parents and brothers to try my luck in the Antipodes. Since then I have written several letters to Mr J H Parry, who had them published -n your paper. A great many friends have written to me asking when I was going to write again, as they were verv pleased to bear all about life in the Colonies from a Ledburian, and in order to keep my promises made to them, I will now endeavour to give them an idea of the characteristics of this neighbourhood if you can spare me a little of your valuable space in the Reporter. Since we have arrived in Charters Towers, which is a gold mining centre, things have ahered a great deal, which is the case with most mining centres, and hundreds of houses and shops, the majority of which are wooden structures, have been removed to some of the agricultural or other mining districts. The rest of our family, like a great many others also, thought it advisable to make a move to a more thriving town, and about seventeen months ago took up their residence in Townsville, which is a seaport town at the one extremity of the Queensland Northern Railway and abiut 82 miles from here. My father found a suitable spot to reside in just outside the town. and purchased a newly built house. As both he and. my younger brother are carpenters they found very little difficulty in getting work close to home. If there are any young Ledburians who l are contemplating emigrating to Australia, and have a good knowledge of carpentering or bricklaying, they will never do better than to try North Queensland. There is always a demand for carpenters, who in some parts get 15.3 per day, and a good bricklayer can get his 16s or 183 per day. I have known a good man at either of these occupations get as much as £ 1 per day. It must be distinctly understood, though, that the secret of success HPS in a man at once becoming a member of one of the trade unions, nearly all of which are affiliated with the Australian Workers' Union or the Australian Workers' Association. In some cases a workman has to produce his union ticket before he can get employment. The Bcales of wages are governed by a Wages Board appointed under the supervision of the Government by the different unions. It is owing to the different unions and the appointment of this wages board that the rates of wages have been increased consider- ably during the past few years. The work- ing day consists of eight hours and out of the eight hours they get about half-an-hour for Smoke Ho." A thrifty yeung fellow could save enough money at either of these occupations in three years to have a six .months' trip to England. If they are living in the town they can board from 20s t6 25s per week, that is good living, after which they can save say £ 2 10s, which leaves about 153 to spend to buy clothes, this of course being plenty unless a person is of a very extravagant nature. They pay time and a half for all overtime except Sundays and holidays, for which double time is paid. Holidays of course, I mean those gazetted by the Government as public holidays. There are ofcen time3 when you get out on a job in the bash, then of course you do not require anything to spend, for perhaps you are un- able to come into town for six or eight months. In cases like this it does not cost so much to live, for when several young fellows get out for any length of time they do not board, but batch," that is live in a tent and take it in turns cooking their own meals. My brother Jim is working as a carpenter and earni ng 15s per day out at the Alligator Creek Meat Works, which is about 17 miles outside To-.vnsville. There are a great many men employed on the extension of these works, and the company provides accommodation and a cook to get the meals, for which they charge 17s per week. The only chance of getting into town is on a Saturday afternoon, either by road or motor boat. Of course, the road is only a rough bush track, aud in wet weather is almost impassable fur cyclists. There are several small creeks or streams to wade through, for there are no bridges. On most of the bush roads the cyclists have made their own tracks, which as a rule are just wide enough for a bicycle to run on, with long grass and undergrowth on either side. I have done a little bush-riding myself lately. Starting from Charters Towers with several mates I ride down to the Burdekin River, which is about nine or ten milps away, on a Saturday afternoon and do a little fishing, coming home on Sunday morning, or if it is a. full moon I leave the river soon after midnight. It is a fine out- ing after being caged up in an office all the week. I bad a rather strange experience a few weeks ago. Myself and two others went out on a Saturday afternoon and fished until just before sundown, when we went out to gather some logs for firewood to make a fire to boil our billy." We bad wandered around for some time and dark- ness began to creep on us, when one of the fellows thought he had struck a nice log of wood, and put his hand on a huge snake taking his afternoon nap after having had a good feed. You may be sure be soon let go, and before we were able to get anything to despatch him with, he bad made himself scarce. Another week two of us went down in a buggy, and when we arrived at our destina- tion we hobbled the pooy, as is the custom in Australia, to keep it from straying too far away from the camp, and began fishing. We bad tea and fished until midnight by the light of the moon. After the moon had disappeared we drew in our lines, and as the grass was still damp from the recent rains we made up our minds to make tracks for home. when we rememembered that we had not caught the pony. Then began a tedious tramp across a paddock over two miles square in search of the pony. With an acetylene bicycle lamp and a bridle we set out to look for it. It was now quite dark and not too pleasant to be tramping about the bush, studded with gum and bloodwood trees and grass almost up to our knees. We arrived back at the camp just after two o'clock and made a start for home. With the aceytelene lamp exhausted and the very faint light from our buggy candle lamp, we found it difficult to keep on the track and were forced to keep the pony going at a walking pace only. Several times we got off the track, but having a.fair knowledge of the district, we managed to keep in the right direction. When the roads were good enough to get the pony into a trot, there were generally a few cattle lying on the road, so we bad to be careful. That is one thing I have noticed in these parts that the cattle always prefer the hard road to sleep on in preference to the grass. I have only met one fellow who came out since me from anywhere near Ledbury, and that was a young fellow who came out from Hereford, named Will Charles. He came out here about two years ago, and he says that his father is a retired police officer of Hereford. Mv brother Jim when working at the Ross River Meat Works about 18 months ago, one day happened to go into a storekeeper's shop at Oonoonba for provis- ions, when his eye fell upon a Ledbury newspapei, and a supplement showing the Fair Tree bridge at Newtown, Ledbury, with the brook in flood. He at once recog- nised the features of several of his old schoolmates in the photograph, and you may be sure he wanted to know who the person was that owned the newspaper. After making enquiries he found out that it belonged to a fellow named Bishop, and I can tell you they both had a great talk about the old town. This man said he was related to the Bishops that used to live at the Withers, but neither Jim nor my father happened to know him. (To be continued.)
A SURGERY IN A TWO-INCH BOX.
A SURGERY IN A TWO-INCH BOX. I The Usefulness and Reliability of Zam-Buk. Zam-Buk has been aptly described as a surgery in a two-inch box." Its wide range of usefulness and its unvarying reliability are lbing daily demonstrated. Every home in the British Isles needs Zam-Bnk, as scarcely a day passes without some minor accident, or else some skin trouble occurring which can be safely, swiftly and effectively treated by this unique preparation. Zam-Buk is a rare and valuable herbal balm, skilfully refined, balanced and concentrated. It is manufactured in a beautifully-equipped labor- atory by certain complicated and highly- specialised processes which are known alone to the proprietors, and which take some three months to finally complete. Zam-Buk contains no lard or other animal fat, and in this and every other respect is vastly superior to all common ointments. Both as a First-Aid for superficial wounds and as a sure cure f-ir eczema, ringworm, and summer skin disorders, Zam-Buk is absolutely unequalled. Sold only in seated boxes bearing the registered name Zam-Buk."
ICYCLECAR AND MOTOR CYCLE…
I CYCLECAR AND MOTOR CYCLE NOTES. I [By CELERITER.J I KEEPING DOWN RUNNING COSTS. I PETROL AND OTHER ECONOMIES. 1 1 The motor cycle and the iigatcar are both machines for the man of moderate means, and therefore they must be made to run as cheaply as possible, but at the same time give a high amount of satisfaction and reliability. Though both motor cycle and lightcar do fulfil the above requirements to a very considerable degree, the question of running costs and general cost of upkeep lie to a very great extent in the hands of the owner. There are many little ways in which the careful driver who is generally the owner, will drive and thereby keep bis run- ning costs below the figures obtained by a more careless or less experience driver. The most expensive item in the running costs of any motor vehicle apart from the standing charges is that of petrol or benzole. The first thing to consider in this connection is as to which spirit one shall use. There are several grades bf petrol and there is ben- zole. So far as the various grades of patrol is concerned, I have found no difference as to running, carbonisation, overheating, mileage, or in any other respect, except as regards cost. Under these various grades I am including" No. 1." and "No. 2." spiiit, Crown," Taxibus," Mex and several other low grade spirits. I have tried them all in summer and in winter, and find there is no appreciable difference as regards start- ing. There is a little difference I believe as regards miles per gallon one can get out of each of these spirits, but it almost requires a careful laboratory test to determine which is the most economical. As regards benzole, I have found it does more miles to the gallon than petrol of any grade, and is also, of course, considerably cheaper. I use it both on my car and on my motor cycle whenever I can get it. Until recently I have found no fault with benzole, and I have lately noticed one peculiarity in connection with its use and it is that it seems to have some detri mental effect on the central electrode of single point plugs. It appears to have either some corro- sive or softening action and ultimately, though not until anything over 5,000 or 6,000 miles use, the electrode breaks off. Another objection raised against benzole, and there may be something in it, is that it is unwise to use it on a new engine that is not run in as it has a tendency to dry up the lubricating oil. So far as carbon deport is concerned, I find there is less deposit from benzole than from petrol, or it may be that the benzole prevents the formation of dep )sit which would result from oil getting past, the piston rings. Some carburettors are I know hyper-sensitive, and the use of benzole, which is a heavier spirit than petrol, upsets the mixture, but as a rule a carhme,ter, which works well with patrol will work equally well with benzole. This particularly applies to motor cycle and light car carbur- etters which are not nearly so complicated as some of the big car carburetters. So mlich for petrol then. I have no hesitation in advising the use of benzole when it is obtain- able, and even if it is the same price as a low grade petrol it should be used in preference as it will give a longer mileage and develop more power on hills. There is no objection to mixing petrol and benzole in any propor- tion, should this be necessary wLen purchas- ing. By buying benzole one ca. save 5d per gallon, as compared to the piioj of No. 1 petrol, which is a considerable it m on a mileage of, say. 4.000 per annum, as, on a consumption of 40 miles to the gallon, it is equal to a saving of over £ 2 but on a consumption of 30 miles to the gallon, it is equal to near £3, or the cost of the tax on the car. This on the difference in price alone without taking into consideration the high mileage obtainable per gal!on. As regards how to keep down the petrol con- sumption, this entirely depend s on the driver. Taking two exactly similar machines over the same course, oue driver might, aver- age 40 miles to the gallon, when the other only does 30. Speed, of course, has a great deal to do with petrol consun. it ion. If one's engine is kept going all out all the time it is being driven it will not only lead to a heafrv petrol bill, but it will also shorten the life of the car or cycle and all its component parts to a remarkable degree. Probably the most economical speed— speedometer speed, not average speed—i»25 miles per hour, and for a motor cycle 30 m.p.h. Above this speed the petrol consumption will be higher, and the wear aud tear on the whole machine will 'be greater. In order to economise petrol the engine should not be kept running when the car is standing longer than is absolutely necessary, and the carburetter should be tuned up. so that the engine will just tick over without stopping and not race away. This may seem a small item, but it all mounts up in the course of a year's driving. Unfortun- ately all manufacturers do not turn out either their light cars or their motor cycles with the carburetters tuned up to concert pitch, and a little time spent in tuning up the carburetter is often well repaid. Of course, the novice should not attempt any alterations, as he will probably find his carburetter in a worse mess than before, but when he has mastered the principle of the carburetter, he may try the effect of various jets and choke tubes, or he may get Eome good local garage man to do the tuning up in his spare time, but one must be sure that, the local man is good." Af;er petrol economy or expenditure, whichever way one looks at it, comes the tyre bill. Here again much depends on the driver, though if a motor cycle or light car is under-tyred, there can be no economy until the proper size of tyre is fitted. Speed is one of the most important functions in tne determination of the life of the tyre. The harder one drives the sooner will a new tyre or set of tyres be required. By hard driving I do not only mean driving fast on straight stretfhes of road, for, although this is one way of getting rid of rubber, it is by no means the fastest way, nor yet the easiest. The easiest w.ty to wear one's tyres out is to do any or all of the following things:—Let in the clutch suddenly when starting up, or picking up speed, after slowing down for traffic tear round corners at high speed apply the brakes suddenly, and often rather than use the engine as a brake and use one's judg- ment to slow up in plenty of time, instead of going on until the last second, and then pulling up sharp. Any of these methods correctly carried out will soon bring the tyres to a fit condition for the waste rubber merchant, "whilst the reverse of such methods will economise rubber Some people seem to have an idea that a steel studded tyre is cheaper to use than all rubber tyre because t here are steel studs in oontact with the ground instead of rubber. This is an entirely mistaken notion. A steel studded cover is more expensive than all rubber ones in the first cost; it usually loses a lot of studs in less time than one can wear out a plain tyre then the wet gets in and rots the canvas, and ultimately ruins the tyre, which under the best of conditions » cannot be retreated satisfactorily. On the other hand a good plain cover can be re- treated and will almost outlast one and a half studded covers at much lower cost. After petrol and tyres comes oil. It is false economy to economise in lubricating oil for the engine, but many engines are very wasteful and require more oil than they actually use, that is to. say they throw out a good deal of oil at the crank case joints or at the cylinder joints, or in some ca-ies through the crank shaft bearings. Besides being wasteful an oily engine is always an eye-sore. If one cannot stop the leak by means of brown paper washers coated with a mixture of gold size and fish glue, or a coating of secotine, the engine should be returned to the makers for attention at some available opportunity, as for instance when the cy linders want cleaning or the bearings want adjusting, and the joints should be made tight. Of course with oil as with petrol and tyres it is the speed which tells. The faster one goes the more oil the engine requires. Air-cooled engines require more oil than water-cooled ones they also require m^re on a hot day than on a cold one. Make your engine economical as regards the absence of oil leaking or flinging, but dou't try to economise by giving too little oil, for oil is much cheaper than new brass or white metal bearings. An item in the upkeep of a light car is the springing and the transmission system. The spring should be kept well oiled in order that the shackles do not wear and become noisy and inefficient. Unfortunately many makers do not fit adequate oiling arraogements, but the springs require plenty of attent ion nevertheless. The transmission system must also be taken care of. The differential gear must be lubricated regularly oil must be used, not grease, which in time is flung lwav from all moving parts and leaves them to grind to powder. The clutch also requires attention, and should be oiled from time to time if undue wear is to be prevented. When a motor cycle is being cleaned all moving parts should b-i thoroughly oiled after having been perfectly cleaned. The working parts of a motor cycle are so exposed to dirt and dust that they must necessarily wear if the dust is allowed to work its wav into these parts and if oil is added on top of the grit to make an effective grinding compound. For tiiis reason then the dirt should first be cleaned out with paraffin and the oil applied after. Care and proper attention during use go a long way towards preserving a car in its original state, thus not only keeping down running costs, but enabling it to fetch a higher figure than v^ould otherwise be the case when put into the secJud haud market.

WEEKLY MOTOR NOTES.I
WEEKLY MOTOR NOTES. When the question of plain tyres as dis- 1 tinguished from nonskids comes up for con- ,i d era f) -at the beginning of the season let us or when spares are being laid in on thereof a long tour-many motorists appear to forget that their cars are four wheeled vehicles. That is to say there is often a strong tendency (origin unknown) to provide an outfit of Michelin Square Treads for the front wheels only. The back wheeli- similarly are treated to an unvarying accompaniment of Nonskid. But why limit Square Treads in this way ? Two nonskids on the back wheels are an excellent equip- ment but this does not imply that a non- skid and a Square Tread, or two Square Tfeads, are never to be used on the rear wheels. The Michelin Square Tread is well able to put up an excellent working record on back wheels simply because it is made for back wheel work-as you will appreciate w heu you come to examine the details of its construction. To begin with, it is moulded in one piece. There are no joins the tread is not made separately and vulcan- ised on to the body. This feature in itself makes for far greater strength than that eujoyed by any all-rubber cover made in several parts. Then again the tread of the Michelin Square Tread is strongly compressed. When inflated, the tyre presents a broad square suface of tough compressed rubber of remarkable thickness. With its beautiful resiliency it makes easy riding, and with its tremendous strength and toughness it makes mileage to satisfy the heart and pocket of the most ardent tourist. Not every road and not every car by any o,meaus demands a full nonskid armoury. Therefore take the foregoing remarks also into account and use Michelin Square Treads —or at least, make one of the pair a Michelin Square Tread —on the back wheels of your car. BIBENDUM. I ————
REVIEWS. THE WORLD SET FREE," by H G Wells (Messrs Macmillan and Co., Ltd., London, extra crown 8vo. 6). This new novel by Mr Wells is described as a story of mankind, and it is no less than an imaginary history of the world of the next 70 or 80 years. It presents in a new light the great conflict between the aucient traditions of law and property and nationality, and the gigantic and altogether revolutionary possibilities of science that now grow to a head. Than Mr Wells there is no more imaginative writer to-day, and in The World Set Free." he has described with that master touch of his what the world will be like in the middle of the present century. It is a fantastic story, possible only to such a genius as the writer, and it is full of that grip on the mind of tha reader which one associates with such a brilliant author. It is a story of the possibilities of scientific development and there 's no man livihg who can bring so much -reality into scientific imagination as can Mr Wells. He has gathered in this hook the true essence of romance, and with it, the power to make the impossible seem not only probable, but almost tiue. U WAITING," by Gerald O'Donovan (Messrs Macmillan and Co., Ltd., extra crown 8vo. Gs nett).-A new novel by the gifted author of Father Ralph," of which the writer has pleasureable recollections, is sure to be interesting, and the reader will not be disappointed. As in his former novel, which we notice is now in its sixth impression, the scenes of the story are laid in Ireland, and it is full of life and action and character reminiscent of Father Ralph." No writer of late years has done more to show us the workings of the Irish national spirit than Mr O'Donovan, who in Waiting" has added one more contribution to the ever- lasting Irish question, a valuable one seeing that it is the outcome of direct experience. One finds within the pages of ,Wailing I' d, lightful sketches of Iiish national life and character and religion, and not the least interesting portions of the book are some typical details of Irish peasant life, which could only have been penned by a writer so thoroughly conversant' with the subject matter a¡ Mr 0 Donovan. A book that is sure io be a success.
