The Bride=elect Devises Desserts. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1901

The Bride=elect Devises Desserts. Strong opinions upon various dietary r.al ters were part of the stock-in-trade of the Bride to-be. One of such opinions she held con cerning the desserts that should be served in hot weather. She was a young woman of good digestion and normal palate, so she was fond of pastry of most sorts, but she felt very de cidedly that the time for pies of nearly every kind was in cold weather, when the gastric powers were tcned up to hard work. The only exception she made to the principle that pies should be vetoed in hot weather was in the case of certain fruit tarts, made from the fresh fruit. These were too good to be made the subjects of the dietary conscience. As the season advanced she rendered her family happy by giving them peach shortcake, made in the old-fashioned way that is so much better in its results than any modern method. The shortcake was nothing more nor less than a good quick-biscuit dough, baked in a rather thick round cake, torn open when...

Recipes. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1901

Recipes. Fritters.-Capital fritters may be made with a kind of paste, which, being allowed to cool, is cut into shapes, which are dipped in butter and fried. Here are several forms of it: 1. Pass some potatoes through a sieve, stir into them a little melted butter and enough whole eggs to- form a stiffish paste; season with salt, pepper, and a little nutmeg; form into the shape of little balls, and dip in batter and1 fry. This may be varied by adding a little cream, also some ham or Bologna sau sage finely minced, and some chopped paxsley. 2. Have a saucepan with about a pint of boiling water and one ounce of butter; drop into this gradually with the hand some Indian cornflour, stirring all the time until, you get a liquid paste. Take care not to put too much flour, and to put in gradually, else it will form into knots and spoil the dish. Removing the saucepan from the fire, you stir into the paste a good allowance of grated' Parmesan cheese, a little salt and pepper, and pour out y...

Raising Turkeys for Market. Miss H. C. Dudley, Beenleigh. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1901

Raising Turkeys for Market. Miss H. C. Dudley, Beenleigh. Raising turkeys is one branch of farm in dustry that pays extremely well. To make the business a success, however, the attendant must understand their habits and disposition; must be prompt and thoughtful, exercising good judgment and untiring zeal in their management. Turkeys possess more intelli gence than they are usually credited with, are susceptible of being trained so as to become regular in their habits, and can then be de pended upon with tolerable certainty. The variety called the dark bronze is considered the largest and finest, as well as the hand somest and most robust. Turkeys are some times hatched and rared by ordinary hens, and will then stay closer around the house and yard, but such broods are nevet quite so large and fine as those that travel far and wide, subsisting to a greater extent upon such insects and fresh tender verdure as is their natural food. To insure healthy ,thrifty poults, the parent stock ...

To BUTTER MAKERS and EXPOBTEBS and all Interested in Dairying. We have the pleasure to remind you that "PRESERVITAS" IS STILL THE LEADING PRESERVATIVE IN THE AUSTRALASIAN COLONIES, and that, while admitting* that one of its ingredients is Boracic Acid, we assert that any deleterious effects conveyed by that acid is Neutralized by the Special and Scientific Process under which " Preservitas " is manufactured, and we hold a Certificate to that effect from The Highest Chemical Authority in Great Britain. We would Warn You against the use of Low Priced Preservatives. A Committee appointed by the House of Commons is now sitting in London to enquire into the use of Preservatives, and their decision is certain to be Against the Over use of Boracic Acid. As Boracic Acid in a crude state is the prevailing feature in the Supposed Cheap Preservatives now on the market they will be condemned, while, on the other hand, " Preservitas " being a properly manufactured Article is likely to be The Rec...

Mr. Tardent and the Department of Agriculture. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1901

Mr. Tardent and the Department of Agriculture. The " Colonist" in a recent issue devotes some nine columns of space to the correspon dence between the Department of Agricuture and Mr. Tardent (the late manager of the State Farm at Biggenden), dealing with the reasons for the resignation of the latter. It appears that in February and March of this year, the Under-Secretary of the Department wrote and certainly in a most kind and' courteous manner-to Mr. Tardent, stating that taking a prominent part in meetings of a quasi political nature, was hardly in accordance with his position as a Government servant, and certainly, not conducive to the maintain ing of that superiority to all partisanship which has been a distinguishing feature of the Queensland Civil Service. To these two let ters Mr* Tardent seems to have taken grevious exception, and promptly tendered his resigna tion to the Department. The Under-Secretary again wrote practically asking Mr. Tardent to reconsider his-upon the f...

TAKE A HOLIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1901

TAKE A HOLIDAY. Many mothers axe so engrossed in the care of their children and in their household duties that a " day off " would simply seem out of the question. They become cross and peevish, and every hard line in the world seems to have fallen to their lot; at least, that is the way they look at it. It is not because they cannot afford to go. Oh, no, only they have an idea that if they were away from home a day no thing would ever run straight again. If they could only know how pleasant the old duties would seem after a vacation, and now the children would appreciate them after their ab sence, more holidays would be taken than ever dreamed of now. In order to fully enjoy a vacation, if only for a day, leave all the old scenes and associa tions and see something entirely new. Seek the society of some cheerful neighbour. Do not do work which employs you every other day, but procure something new, or talk, gossip -anything which will take the mind hundreds of miles from household ...

Paspalum Dilatatum. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1901

Paspalum Dilatatum. " Four years ago I sowed my first seed and also planted a few thousand roots to form a seed bed. My farm is now practically sowed with paspalum, and the more I see of it the better I like it. Of course I mix other grasses and clovers as a change for the stock, but paspalum is the basis of the pasture; it has proved itself a mainstay for the stock, growing vigorously when the fierce heat had withered up the other grasses. I have carefully observed it in all stages and variations, and I have come to the conclusion that paspalum dilatatum is the very best grass for the farmer to rely upon as a permanent pasture. I say permanent advisedly, for after four years grazing the paddocks are still improving and giving an increased quan tity of feed. It is with us carrying a beast to the acre all the year round, and yet, during this season, I have in rotation been able to shut up every paddock, allowing the grass to grow and shed its seed. By this method a perfect turf can b...
