THE D A I R Y.-Continued. THE AYRSHIRE COW. Would you know how to judge of a good Ayrahirt cow? Attend to the lesson you'll hear from me now. Her head should be short and her muzzle good size, Her nose should fine between muzzle and eyes ; Her eyes^ full and lively, fornhead ample and wide, Horns wide, looking up, and curved inward be sides ; Her neck should be a fine taperiug wedge, And free from loose skin on the undermost edge ; Should be fine where 'tis joined with the seat of the brain, Long and straight upper line without hollow or mane; Shoulder-blades should be thin where they meet at the top; Let her brisket be light, not resemble a crop 5 Her forepart recede like the lash of a whip, And strongly resemble the bow of a ship ; Her back short and straight with the spine well defined, Especially where back, neck, and shoulders are joined ; Her ribs short and arched like the ribs of a barge; Body deep at the flanks, and milk veins full and large; Pelvis long, broad and straight,...

Woman's World. HOW TO HOLD A HUSBAND'S LOVE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 November 1901

lilomoft's lllorld. HOW TO HOLD A HUSBAND'S LOVE. Much nonsense is said and written on the question of how a woman can best hold a hus band's love. The only true solution of that question lies in the home itself. Let a woung wife keep within her husband's means; give him a comfortable, attractive home to come to from his work, and let her fill that home with her woman-like charm and develop ment, and love for her husband, and she never need trouble herself as to the best methods to pursue to endear herself to her husband. If more wives would strive to be a rest and comfort to their husbands by the legitimate means which God has given them to win and hold a man's love, there would be no occasion for fear as to whethelr they were losing their complexions or ceasing to be their husband s ideals. A young wife may hold her husband's atten tion and love for a while because she is pretty and well-dressed. But the prettiest girl or the best-dressed woman soon becomes uninterest ing to a man...

DAIRYING. AYRSHIRE CATTLE. THE DOMINANT DAIRY BREED. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 November 1901

1! DAIRYING. I AYRSHIRE CATTLE. THE DOMINANT DAIRY BREED. The Ayrshire breed of cattle is one of the most popular and most widely distributed race of dairy stock of the present day. Throughout Australia and New Zealand th^y far outnumber any other breed main tained chiefly for dairying purposes. They are as much esteemed by farmers whose land is poor and stony as by those whose land is rich and fertile. They thrive on any sort of pasture, and ihey are indifferent, more th in most other cattle, as to the cli mate they live in, whether it b« hot or cold. Trie robust and healthy constitution of the Ayrshire seems to acUpt the breed for any country or climate, and for these reasons, as well as for, their great milk-pro ducing qualities, they have become famous throughout the world. It is not, of course, to be inuigined that an Ayrshire cow will do as well o i poor keep as she would under better treatment. B it, relatively speaking, she will yield more milk from a given quantity of fond,...

IMPORTANT'; To B1ITTEB MAKERS and EXPORTERS 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 t...

Home Notes. HOW WILL YOUR CHILD GROW UP? [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 November 1901

Home Notes HOW WILL YOUR CHILD GROW UP? A blessing in your old age, or a grief which will cause you to almost wish that he had been taken when an infant, while his soul was un touched by sin. In these enlightened days everyjparent under stands the law of Nature, which in every class of life shows the physical defect of the father or the mother in the child, such as consump tion, asthma, improperly shaped limbs, etc., but there is, I regret to say, not sufficient con sideration given to the " better part.'' Fault*, and even vices, are transmitted to the child, who grows up untruthful at first, then systemati cally deceitful, until friends and foes shun him alike. Whose fault is this? There must have been some similar vice (for such it is) in one of his parents. If either or both had been up right and conscientious, the very first sign of wrong in their child would have been weeded out at once. Some parents addicted to drink find out, when too late, that their boy, of whom they were s...

Sandy Gallop Asylum, Ipswich. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 November 1901

Sandy Gallop Asylum, Ipswich. NE and a-half miles from the grand new post-office clock-tower, Ipswich, in an area of some 16 acres, there stands one of those monuments of the kindness of humanity to their suffer ing or weaker brethren, which gives a denial direct to the much-advertised aphorism of " man's inhumanity to man." An avenue of beautiful trees leads up to the en trance gates, where, near by, is the superin tendent's residence, fronting a home-like garden, and where roses, jessamine, hollyhock, ger anium, verbena and numerous other flow ers form a wonderful array of colour and beauty. Beyond here are the Asylum grounds proper. There is little to denote its being the abode of those cut off from their fellow men, for on either side of the pathways, the season's flowers are nodding and waving in the breeze, amidst some 4 acres of park-like pleasance. Even the buildings, Government pattern though they be, take on to a certain degree the artistic sur roundings, for one enters fr...

TRAINING A GRAPE VINE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 November 1901

TRAINING A GRAPE VINE. Grape vines require special attention just now. The young shoots, for one thing, re quire to be carefully disbudded and stopped. Disbudding means the removal of shoots not re quired' for making future bearing-rods, and stopping the nipping off of the points of such shoots as are retained' at the fourth leaf from their base. A properly trained vine should have young shoots at intervals of a foot up each, side of the main stem. Where shoots occur more numerously the weakest should be pulled off, leaving one strong one at every foot mn. Sometimes the strongest shoots do not bear any fruit; in this case always give pre ference to a shoot bearing a young bunch. The shoots retained are known as laterals. Now each lateral bearing a bunch should have its point nipped off at one leaf beyond the bunch, and any shoot not bearing a bunch should be shortened at the fourth leaf from its base. These operations husband the resources of the vine and enable it to bring its frui...

To Farmers and Pig Growers Generally, NOW that PIG RAISING is becoming an important part of Farmers' work, it is desirable that they should have a clear idea of what class of MEAT is required by the MANUFACTURER. In all parts of the World, and in this Colony in particular, the demand is only for LEAN MEDIUM-SIZED BACON- By LEAN BACON, we mean that a large amount of LEAN, STREAKY MEAT must predominate. To get this, Farmers must give more attention to their Breed of PIGS; the common ill-bred swine, which give so much fat, must be dispensed with. As bacon-curers, we recommend the medium BERKSHIRE PIG, which, properly fed, will, at 7 months old, produce the class of BACON we desire. In order to enable Farmers to secure this breed, we have established a stud at our farm at Zillmere, and growers desiring to improve their stock will kindly communicate with us, and we will be pleased to furnish all par ticulars as to price.

Horticultural Notes. THE CAUSE AND CURE OF SCALE DISEASE ON CITROUS TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 November 1901

Horticultural V V V VVVVVVVll Notes THE CAUSE AND CURE OF SCALE DISEASE ON CITROUS TREES. BY H. FLETCHER. By far the most serious pest that troubles the orange and lemon grower in Australia is the disease known as the scale insect. Both the black and red variety are more or less scattered all over the country, killing many trees and making much of the fruit unsightly or worthless. The question has been already briefly treated in these columns ; but the disease is such a serious menace to an impor tant industry, and discoveries lately made so add to our power of combating the evil, that further notes on the subject will be of value. The most important point gained is the assurance that the disease is promoted and encouraged by the weakness of the plant itself ; that a thoroughly healthy citrous tree will not attract or breed scale. Many old growers may dissent from this view, as they point to trees that, looking otherwise healthy, yet are infested with scale. Yet the con clusion stat...
