For selection in Queensland
Wo have pleasure in calling the attention of our readers to an advertisement appearing in another portion of this issue with reference to ' Crown L/andS’ available in Queensrlan'd. from which it will be seen that Mr Frank, E. Pulsford, who has been appointed special representative for Queensland Crown hands, offers to supply free of charge to any land seeker, who -will take the trouble to drop him a post card, a copy of an illustrated report on lands offering for selection, and of which he has made a personal inspection. Mr Pulsford has 1 forwarded us a copy of this most interesting publication, and we can heartily recommend it to the notice of all who are on the look out for ’‘fresh holds and pastures new.” The report covers a very wide area of available land in Queensland, and appears to give most of the information that an intending settler 'would naturally require before making a definite move to another .State. For instance, the nature of the soils, their depth, proximity of the land to rail. are discussed ; and timbers, grasses, etc., described in detail. Also the rainfall figures are given for each district, and what settlers in the vicinity are doing with their laud But what, will appeal more particularly to practical men, an appendix containing extracts from settlers received by Mr Pulsford from farmers who have already inspected the lands in the Northern State. There are no less than a hundred of these, the witters of which come from all parts of New South Wales. Victoria, and some from the other States. These men are most enthusiastic on the subject, in many cases only regretting that they did not know of these .splendid lands 20 years ago. Mr Pulsford’s address is 14 O’Connell street, Sydney, N.S.W.
