      Mt. Tarampa Pioneers

      MR. and MRS. OTTO DARGUSCH

      Early settlers in the Lockyer Creek and Bremer River watersheds travelled the hard way-by road through Fernvale and Rosewood. The two advances on the West Moreton flats met near Mt. Tarampa. Here the Dargusches, fresh out from Germany, made their homestead in the early seventies.
      Mr. Otto Dargusch, the eldest son, began farming on his own account just before Queensland's disastrous '93 flood. He remembers and resents some of the prices paid to the early settlers for cream and corn produced under difflculties.
      Mr. and Mrs. Dargusech celebrated their golden wedding last Wednesday, when about 50 of the family-sons and daughters, grandchildren, and great grandchildren-met at the old home outside Tarampa village.
      Following traditional custom, Mrs. Dargusch wore a wreath of gold painted leaves, and the family, with friends, celebrated the 50th year of marriage of two pioneering Australians.
      It had rained and was still raining, but the family vacated the big marquee erected on the grounds, and adjourned to the verandahs of the big house.
      Quoting Mr. Dargusch, it would seem that these early settlers had a big problem with the middlemen in the primary produce market.
      First crops attempted were corn, which travellers from Brlsbane and Ipswich picked up by dray and waggon at the farms at 2/6 a bushel. Price at Brisbane then was about 7/.
      In the winter, where cows were in milk, dairymen used to get 1/6 a lb. for cream. In the summer the price was 2d. That was when every cow in the district was in milk.
      There were no cream carters then. Milk, twice a day, was put out in the air in basins for a couple of days, and the cream skimmed from it.
      Both Mr. and Mrs. Dargusch still take a keen interest in the homestead farm, although they have sons-in-law and daughters-ln-law to do the field work.
