FASCINATING JULIA. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 November 1901

FASCINATING JULIA. By AMOS EVERY. "What I want, my dear," said old Mrs. Sherrington to her married daughter, "is a strong arm to lean upon. Now the young girls of the present day are very differently brought up from what you were, for they romp and race about in a manner that I consider highly indecoious. They cultivate their muscles in rowing cricketing, and! tennis, and coarsen their skins by exposure to all weathers in bicycling. However, I shall be very glad to make use of some of the robust manliness of an up-to-date young woman, for with my fail ing eyesight and tottering steps I feel the need of a protector and guide." " It will never do for you to be deprived of your little daily walks and shopping just be cause you feel so nervous about crossing the roads and can't see very well where you are going," answered her daughter, decidedly. "You must really have a lady companion someone strong and big." " And good-tempered and bright; I do so hate a sulky face," interrupted the ol...

Field, Orchard and Garden. FOR NOVEMBER. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 November 1901

Field, Orchard and Garden. FOB NOVEMBER. (By Mr. Jas. Mitchell, Bowen Park.) FLOWER GARDEN.-As the winter an nuals die off. have them cleared away. Manure and dig up every vacant corner, and fill up all gaps with summer varieties of plants^ such as zinnias, cosmos, amaranthus, coleus, bal sams, chrysanthemums, portulaca, ornamental grasses, geraniums, tropical flowering shrubs, etc. See that the ground is well worked and watered before planting, and, if possible, plant during cloudy or showery weather. Roses should receive special attention during this season of the year; do not overwater, but give sufficient to keep the plants in a healthy condition while they are making strong growths. Roses thrive best in a fairly stiff loam. A good layer of well-rotted cow or stable manure will be beneficial as a mulching. See that the soil is well drained to prevent water lodging about the roots during the wet season, as stagnant water causes the death of many rose plants every year. In making ...

IMMATURE SIRES. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 November 1901

IMMATURE SIRES. i The extent of the injury from using im mature sires could not be easily defined. It is only one of a number of factors, each of which, under one system of artificial manage ment is antagonistic to the highest degree of development, and in >re particularly to the retention of robus ness of constitution and bodily vigour. It would be impossible to say how much influence each of those fac'ors exerts in the direction of deterioration ; but there is no reasonable doubt that the extent to which immature sires *re used gives this unfortunate practice a long lead in not only barring the way to higher attainment, but also in lowering the standard of achieve ment. Lass of stamina is one of the most common forms in which deterioration shows itself in animals under domestication, and the more artificial the conditions the more difficult is it to prevent deterioration. It should be a constant study with the breeder how this stamina can be maintained. But his efforts in this ...

EDITOR'S OUTLOOK BREEDING ARMY REMOUNTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 November 1901

BREEDING ARMY REMOUNTS. One outcome of the wars in which the BrifcishEmpire has been, «nd still is, involved, is the enhanced value and prospects of ho se breeding. The demand for useful horses suited for military purposes has put a higher price upon stock, and the probability is that for some years to come there will be a good demand for army remounts. New South Wales sent to South Africa 2,560 horses, and the Imperial remount committee pur chased a total number of 6,734 in Australia-1,530 from Queensland, 68 from Victoria, and 5,136 from New Soufch Wales. As regards the stamp of horses, 3,104 were for cavalry, 1,876 were mounted infantry cobs, and 1,754 draught horses, the cost being about j£15 each for cavalry animals, £10 10s for mounted in fantry cobs, and £20 each for draught horses. The prospect of an increased demand from Great Britain, Germany, and other power? largely depends on war requirements. Canada has for many years exported horses to England, the voyage averaging fr...

Breeding Hackneys. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 November 1901

Breeding Hackneys. BY IROQUOIS. All men are judges, or think themselves such, of a horse. I admit that after twenty-six years in the saddle that, next to a woman, the horse is the most difficult creature existent to judge. We all know, do we not ?-and vet none of us know. As a bushman and a one time breeder T would not were I managing a stud select a thoroughbred as a hackney-getter or roadster (the nag which will carry the man of average weight, anyway, or anyhow, fifty, sixty or eighty miles in a day, and repeat the performance, or near to it, the day following). The thorough bred or blood horse has oblique shoulders, long pasterns and an over-reaching stride, all of which are condemnatory to the animal required for general purposes. Would any bush man select such an one for mountainous country work scurrying after a mob of brumbies or nuggetty cattle. My opinion is that the three parts blood horse with selected mares, any grade or any breed, cannot fail to ensure the general purp...

Dairy Factory Managers. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 November 1901

Dairy Factory Managers. It is beyond dispute that the high reputa tion and much of the financial success of the export butter trade of this country is largely due to ^ the skill and untiring effort of the factory managers. We can testify to their zeal and competency, without, of course, for getting others who have helped to establish the industry. The dairy farmer and the merchant have each done their part; hut the fact remains that, had the factory managers as a body been indolent and less careful of their employers' interests than they have proved themselves to be, the dairying in dustry would, perhaps, not have been so prosperous to-day. It has al ways seemed to us that the men in charge of the butter factories of this State are entitled to greater encouragement than they generally receive. They are hard worked, have to use both their hands and brains, and, in the majority of cases, are un derpaid. It is seldom good policy to employ cheap labour, and the wages which some factory ...
