The Vicissitudes of the Wool Industry. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 21 May 1900

The Vicissitudes of the Wool Industry. The Australian Insurance and Banking Re cord contains some interesting and in structive figures, illustrative of the al most gambling character of pastoral pursuits. We are accustomed to consider gold and silver mining-apart, of course, from horseracing and card-playing-as the particular pursuits which must be resorted to by those who are never happy unless they can " take miss " in all their investments. But some of the modern de velopments in wool prices suggest the addition of that industry to the category of "specula tions." Mr. Horsfall, of squatting fame, in an interview with the "Argus" some months ago, told the public something of the earlier history of the firm of Goldsbrough and Co.; ant it would be difficult to find in fiction such a series of commercial u ups and downs " as he there narrates, as resulting from the sudden rises in wool values in past years. Whether these extraordinary movements can be reduced to a system of cycles, a...

The Horse. FOR MILITARY SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 21 May 1900

w orge. "A ?T^T' FOR IWIIiITfiRY SERVICE. The active demand for horses for the Indian and South African markets has placed a value on Queensland horses considerably in advance of those current for many years past. And not only so, but the restriction as to size of those required for service at the front in Africa has opened up an outlet for a numerous class of colonial horses that were unsuited for the Indian market. Our horse-breeders, how ever, must not be misled into the belief that because a number of under-sized weeds have been purchased for the present war that a per manent market will be open for such a class of horses. Such another opportunity for weeding out an inferior class of horses may (and it is hoped will) not occur in the life of the present generation. Although prices of horse stock fluctuate greatly, and at times values of really good horses barely pay for the grass they eat, still a market will always be found for really good horses when weeds are unsaleable. The ...

"Skewbald " and " Piebald." [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 21 May 1900

" Skewbald " and " Piebald." Strictly speaking, a skewbald horse is the colour of a coat which consists of patches of any two colours except white or black. A piebald horse, strictly speaking, is one whose coat consists of patches of white and black only; but the term is pretty generally applied to a horse of any two colours. In the old coaching days of England many an expert hand with the reins liked best a team in which one of the leaders was a skew bald, and invariably the parti-coloured one was fast enough at the trot to swing along at' a spanking gait while the other one in the lead and the pair in the wheel were on a smart run. This was dear to the heart of the driver, for the skewbald with his variegated coat at tracted the eye of the spectator, and the trot his attention. So, when there was any trouble about furious driving through the corporate limits of a town, there were always plenty to swear that they saw the horses trotting-ob servers then, as now, being prone to take ...

WHERE THE BETTER MAN CONQUERED. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 21 May 1900

WHERE THE BETTER MAN CONQUERED. 'VE just heard," said Sergeant-Major d| Winter casually, " that you fellows are Jf down for outpost duty to-night. Hope you'll enjoy it." Whereunto Sergeant Taylor responded with an extremely short and pithy remark. You're right," agreed the Sergeant-Major; " it isn't exactly picnicking, especially after a hard day's marching. From what I heard the old man say to Bellairs, too, I fancy we are almost in touch, with just a chance of a^ night attack. Better make your will, my boy, and don't forget your superior officer." " Won't take much making," growled Taylor. " Got a postage stamp about you ? I can get it on that. It's a precious poor look-out for the superior officer." " Well, we're all in the same boat," rejoined the Sergeant-Major. 44 Less glory and more pay would suit us a sight better. A shilling a day doesn't cover the risks; what say you? And, by the bye, that reminds me. Just a word of warning, old man. Keep your eyes on that chap, Grey. I he...

SOIL TREATMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 21 May 1900

SOIL TREATMENT. Aside from the element of fertility three things are essential to the growth of crops. These are light, heat and moisture, and the best possible results frorn their presence and the utility by the plants depends almost en tirely upon the physical conditions of the soil. If the soil is not made mellow and friable penetration of any of these, and under such conditions plants must either die outright or produce an inferior and unprofitable growth. If the soil is not made mellow and friable there cannot be perfect admixture of light, air, and warmth, and consequent perfect germina tion of seed and subsequent development of the plant. If the soil is not properly com pacted or blanketed, or mulched on top with fine earth, there will be too rapid evaporation of natural and added moisture, from a lack of which plants and growing crops will again suffer. These things being true then, it becomes a matter of greatest necessity to have the soil prepared in the best possible mann...

DEVONSHIRE CREAM. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 21 May 1900

DEVONSHIRE CREAM. The preparation of Devonshire cream is a very simple process. You simply scald the new milk as soon as it gets cold from the cow, and cold again after scalding, skimming may be conducted in the ordinary way, and the cream you take is clotted cream. You skim once for all about 12 hours after milk is scalded. But it is important that the pans should get quite cold after the milk is scalded before the cream is taken. The scalding is done in several ways. On large Devonshire dairy farms I have seen Devon stoves used to heat the water. The pans have places made to fit into, and so half-a-dozen may be scalded at once, as the bottom parts of the pans stand in the boiling water. Other dairymaids simply set their pans on the kitchen range, and others put a pan within a pan, that is, set the one containing the milk in another containing boiling water. In either case it is of first importance that the milk should be brought only to a light simmer -just until there is a little...

THE SERVANT GRAPE. (SUPPLEMENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 21 May 1900

THE SERVANT GRAPE. VIEWS ON THE NORTH COAST RAILWAY LINE. (SUPPLEMENT.) This is a variety of grape which -is much appreciated in France, and of late years, has become quite fashionable as a table grape. It possesses two valuable characteristics. One is that it is capable of being sent on long journeys without much risk of damage in tran sit ; the other, and a most important one from the point of view of the grower of table grapes, is that the vine is most prolific. When other grapes are nearly over, the Servant is only just ripening its berries. It is a very handsome grape, as may be judged from our illustration, which has been courteously supplied to us by the Department of Agriculture. It resists fungoid diseases to a remarkable degree, but nevertheless it requires attention, especially when it is introduced to a new country with a different climate to that of its original province. It matters little how the vine is trained; whether on a trellis or on stakes, and it is indifferent...

Woman's World. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 21 May 1900

(DometFi's llJerfd. How many women there are who attend religiously to all the other details of their toilet and neglect to take proper care of what should be one of their chief beauties-their hands. They rinse them frequently-sometimes frequently-dry them carelessly, and, after a little perfunctory attention to the nails, con sider that part of the toilette complete. To most women are given pretty hands, but let them be ever so delicately shaped and plump they must be well cared for, while a bony or misshapen one can be made absolutely symmetrical if properly treated. The objects to be attained are to render iae skin white and to soften the flesh, after which the nails must be shaped and polished. The first requisite is good, pure soap, not neces sarily the expensive scented kind, but of the sort that will produce a clear white lather in ordinary soft warm water. Have on the washstand a box of fine oat meal, and, after thoroughly rinsing, plunge the hands into the meal and rub as w...

ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. ROSELIA WINE (Hatton Vale).-Obtain two casks, one for the preparation of the liquor and one suitable for the amount of wine you intend to make. Thorough ly wash the casks out with hot water. Take off one head of the first cask and put in all the fruit you intend to use. Cover the fruit over well with boiling water, and let the cask stand for three days in a warm place. Stir the contents twice each day. Pour in at the end of this time a thick syrup of sugar and water hot, using for each gallon of Rosella juice 38) of sugar. Stir well, and an hour after strain into the second cask.

Horticulture. LILIES. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 21 May 1900

LILIES. Lilium Auratum is unquestionably the queen of Lilies. A capricious, spoiled queen she is, blooming one year and dying the next, per Hps; producing her regal flowers wh*n it Fl its her queenship, and sulking w'.fti it pleases her better. But every flower, magnifi cent in its ivory whiteness, illumined by the broad band of gold that stripes the centre of e?ch petal, and its wide expanse ensprai.gled with rich crimson dots, makes amends tpr a dozen faults. Its perfumed flowers are cf the largest size and of the most perfect form, while its beauty is incomparably beyond that of any other Lily. Therefore, in spite of her capriciousness, the Auratum is the first Lily we would choose for our garden. I believe it is best to avoid all manure in the soil that directly presses against the bulb. Some claim that isand under and around the bulb, or a handful of coarse pulverized sphagnum or cranberry moss in the sand's place, will pre vent the rotting of Auratum bulbs. Good drainage is ce...

Field, Orchard and Gardso for June. FIELD. The substantial rain which has fallen will create a busy time upon the farm, as owing to tue long-continued dry weather planting opera tions have been delayed. This is a good time to sow lucerne, oats, vetches, cow peas, prairie grass, and rye. The latter grass is much relished by cattle and horses, and makes a good sward for grazing over, being green and succulent during the early spring months. It will have to be mowed occasionally to pre vent seeding. Keep well worked any land in tended for planting maize dr potatoes in July or August. Where moist weather prevails in the North sugar cane may be planted, but it is late for tobacco. Plant out young seedlings. Wheat is now being largely sown on the Downs. Well mulch any crop likely to be affected by frost, as every indication points to a severe winter. ORCHARD.
