Accidents and Emergencies. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 28 March 1900

Accidents and Emergencies. WHAT TO DO.-If an artery is cut, red blood spurts. Bandage it above the wound. If a vein is cut, dark blood flows. Bandage it above and below the wound. If choked, get upon all fours and cough. A sharp blow between the shoulders may help in expelling whatever is in the throat Or oesophagus. For slight burns, dip the part into cold water. If the skin is destroyed cover with linseed oil. Common baking soda is a good remedy for burns. Send for a physician in case of a serious accident, but do what is here directed until he comes. CLOTHING CATCHING FIRE.-If you see a person whose clothing is on fire, throw him to the ground and roll him over and over. Throw a coat, rug, carpet, or any blanket at hand over him. The object of this is to prevent the flames being swallowed. SCALDS AND BURNS.-These are common accidents, and an understanding of what to do may save a life and much suffering.

WOMAN'S WORLD. Woman's Dress.—Choice of Colour. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 28 March 1900

Woman's Dress.-Choice of Colour. To the feminine temperament there is com fort beyond the understanding of man in the mere fact of Dress; a becoming garment is -well, perhaps not above rubies, but cer tainly beyond philosophy, while " The Fashion " is a kind of moral sal volatile. Of course this may be called "mere vanity," but it is a vanity that is mysteriously inseparable from woman's charm (Oh, the women without it!); besides, it is a vanity that claims a special tenderness. It has a great compensat ing influence, it is generous in merciful il lusion, it solaces even the tribulation of the " vellow leaf." The other day I was privileged to read a letter which told of condemnation to a bed of sickness, of suffering and depression, but there was a delicious sentence in it: " Mrs. Jack has just come in from her ride,' she wrote, "and tells me I look extremely pretty in my new blue nightgown,-so I feel quite set up." No longer did the aching head matter, the poor painful body lay alm...

Notes of the Month. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 28 March 1900

flotes | Jflonth. The war in South Africa, in which the whole of the British Empire is concerned, is rightly the absorbing theme throughout the colony. The willingness to give to our utmost in both men and money to aid in upholding the rights of the Empire, and to punish the treachery of the Boer, grows with each succeeding day, as bit by bit the thought becomes conviction that the struggle is the outcome of many years' preparation on the part of the Trans vaalers and the Dutch of South Africa gen erally to oust Great Britain from her supremacy in that portion of the world. The statesmanlike action of the Hon. J. R. Dick son, the then Premier of the colony, and the Cabinet, who supported him, in sending the first Queensland contingent to the seat of war, is greatly to be commended, and the subse quent similar conduct of the present Premier, the Hon. Robt. Philp, is in every way in ac cordance with the people's heart-felt desires. AUSTBALIAN DEFENCE. Since the sending to South Africa...

Home Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 28 March 1900

Ill JB Honne Notes The dampness and unwholesomeness of an undersink cupboard, such as one finds in nearly all old-style kitchens, can be re medied by boririg numerous holes in the front and end with an inch auger and by keeping a can filled with unslaked lime on a shelf inside, The holes can be made in a geometrical design and detract in no way from,its looks. L . * * * If a sink reaches to a corner of- the room a bracket shelf fastened at a convenient height in the corrier is handy for holding those numerous tirne-and strength-saving materials which the wise worker provides herself; namely, sapolio, pearline, borax and a vegetable brush. If room is wanting, screw-hooks can be put in th« underside of the shelf to hold the , wire dishcloth, soap shaker, etc. * * * A twine bag, with a pair 'of shears hanging conveniently near, should be. found in every kitchen. So, too, should a pincushion and small mirror. One can easily find time to give a becoming touch to their toilet before going...

What to Do With our Horses. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 28 March 1900

What to Do With our Horses. For a great many years this has been a serious question with a large number of pas toralists, particularly the cattle men who have had to breed horses for their own require ments and have thtis in course of time become overstocked. Naturally, under such condi tions, the breeding of horses has been gener ally conducted under haphazard conditions, and little or no trouble has been taken in the selection of either sires or dams, so that, just as our horses became numerous, so they also became a drug in the market, and were worth very little as a station asset. Much has been said and written on the subject of the general inferiority of the average Queensland horse in size and substance, and the prospect of making a marketable commodity of the large number of horses now running on sta tions has almost been despaired of. Accord ing to statistics, there are something like 230,000 horses in Queensland, and the present war in South Africa has so altered the condi ...

Field, Garden and Orchard Notes for April. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 28 March 1900

Field, Garden and Orchard Notes for April. Field.-Wherever rust has been prevalent it would be wise to sow wheat during this month, the early sowing being found to be a preventa tive. Maize should now all be got in. Earth up potatoes. Plough land ready for future crops. Sow lucerne, vetches, and grasses, and towards end of month oats, - barley, rye, mangolds, and Swedes. If the oat crop is wanted for fodder, it may be sown during the whole month. Cut tobacco, and continue planting it in the North. Care should, how ever, be taken that the crop has arrived at maturity. The cotton crop should be coming into pod, and will require attention. Coffee planting may be attended to in the North especially, if the soil is moist. In the South the garnering and manufacture of arrow root will be a special work of the month. Gather sorghum and imphee, as they ripen, to prevent the seds being lost. Kitchen Garden.-Keeping down weeds is the first consideration. Continuous hoeing should be carried on,...

" (®uentslan& dountrjj life" (ILLUSTRATED). VOL.I.(New Series) BRISBANE, MARCH 28 No. I. WITH this issue the numerous subscribers to the " Australian Tropiculturist" will witness a very considerable change in the journal which, for seven years, has to the utmost of its power helped forward the interests of the country residents of Queensland. Commenced as the " Australian Agriculturist," in conjunction with an edition for New South Wales, it in two years made such marked progress that it was deemed advisable to issue a separate Queens land publication, and since that time it has been known as the "Australian Tropiculturist and Stockbreeder." After a period of negotia tion this journal was purchased by one of the original staff of the " Agriculturist"-Mr. Wm. Lees-to .whom much of the success of the original paper was ascribed, Jt will be .ap parent that in each department of the journal great alterations have been made, and both in title and aspect the paper has been com ple...

The Dairy. The Bad Effects of Irregular Milking. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 28 March 1900

The Dafry Tbe Bad Effects of Irregular Milking. The Oregon Agricultural College Experi ment Station a year or so ago instituted a series of experiments to determine exactly what losses resulted through irregular milking. The experiment was as follows : "Six cows were divided into two lots, such that the average age of the cows and period of lactation, also total yield of milk, was prac tically the same for each lot. The two lots received the same kind and amount of food, but the cows in Lot i were fed and milked regularly at 5.30 a.m. and 2.30 p.m., while those in Lot 2 were fed and milked at hours ranging from 5 to 7 a.m. and from 4 to 6 p.m. A comparison of the milk yield for three weeks, under this arrangement, with the three weeks preceding showed that the cows in Lot 1 made a gain in yield of 5.9. per cent., while those in Lot 2 decreased in yield 4.4 per cent. Assuming that the cows in Lot 2 would have done as well as those in Lot 1 if they had the same treatment, which is hig...
