Answers to Correspondents. A. McB., Killarney.-The Commonwealth having undertaken to administer certain de partments of the Public Service, such as the Post Office, Telegraphs and Customs, acquires from the several States the buildings, lands, etc., of those departments. The whole are estimated to be worth ^£10,445,000. The bill for acquiring these properties is entitled the States' Property Acquisition Bill. The fol lowing are the values of the different pro perties of each State about to be taken over by the Commonwealth:-New South Wales, ^3,200,000; Victoria, ^2,745,000; South Australia, ^1,665,000; Queensland, ,£1,590,000; Western Australia, £809,000f and Tasmania, £436,000.

OUT BACK. ''Nice week we've been 'avin'. With these 'ere 'igh temperatures in the shades a mail wants ter keep out in the open fer fear of bein' sunstruck.

Woman's World. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 January 1902

itfoman's llJorfd. No one can help noticing how few people really laugh. Children laugh "without any remorse of voice," but men and women smile, and smile feebly, with a thought-lined mouth. Yet, if they only knew it, laughter is a sure sign of health, and the healthy find it easy to laugh. It is a rare and delightful habit. There is something most unattractive, when one comes to think over it, about the artificial giggle of most women and the half-hearted smile of most men. I would never check the laughter of a child, however uproarious and boisterous, for fear that its habit of laughing should be checked and left behind. Care of a Woman's Hair.-Luxuriant hair is one of the chief items in the catalogue of woman's charms; but it can only be preserved by according it proper treatment. In the morning separate the hair lock by lock, and comb it from the ends up towards the roots with a tortoise-shell comb, coarse and with teeth set far apart. This method of disentangling the hair preve...

LESSONS ON COOKERY. BY MISS SCHAUER. (Instructress in Cookery at the Brisbane, Too woomba, and Maryborough Technical Col leges.) As I have been asked to supply to the Home Columns of " Queensland Country Life'' a series of articles similar in substance to the lectures on cookery given at the several cooker)7 classes in Queensland, and which will probably be a help to those resident in the country districts, I propose to give a course of twelve plain dinners, including therein soup, fish, meat, savoury, and also a cake. The recipes are tried constantly in the Cookery School, Bris bane Technical College, and much appreciated. I hope my readers will try them without fear, and be pleased with the result.

Home Notes. SIMPLICITY. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 January 1902

Home Notes SIMPLICITY. A littje sun, a little rain, A soft wind blowing from the west And woods and fields are sweet again, And warmth within the mountain's breast, So simple is the earth we tread, So quick with love and life her frame, Ten thousand years have dawned and fled, And still his magic is the same. A little love, a little trust, A soft impulse, a sudden dream, And life as dry as desert dust Is fresher than a mountain stream. So simple is the heart of man, So ready for new hope and joy; Ten thousand years since it began Have left it younger than a boy. ?Stopford Brooke.

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 Recognised Safe Preservative. ...

HOW TO IMPROVE SALT MEADOWS NEAR PIMPAMA. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 January 1902

HOW TO IMPROVE SALT MEADOWS NEAR PIMPAMA. Drain the saltj meadows into the neares* creek or ditch which the tides have dug. The water thus drawn off only carries a small por tion of the top soil with it into the creek or ditch, from which it can be easily removed to the manure heap. In this way all along our low-lying sea-coasts the salt meadows may be kept in paying condition at trifling expense, and the creeks kept open. Besides, thousands of loads of good manure can be harvested that will be worth more than many successive crops. Otherwise the tides sweep off at every ebb, of every tide that covers the surface of the meadows the fine, rich soil that would otherwise remain to enrich the salt grasses. In reference to the Immigration Restriction Act, the following from the " Gladstbne Advo cate " is interesting : -" There are people who say that the education clause will prevent the influx of Indian Coolies. That is rubbish. There are millions of Hindoos with high-class Euro pean ed...

DAIRY TESTING. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 January 1902

DAIRY TESTING. The practical tests which have been invented to aid the dairymen during the past ten years exceed in value and in num ber those proposed during any former decade of history. Up to within a very short time a thermometer was about the only thing in the way of a test or of a testei that the butter and cheesemaker had to *ud his judgment. He was obliged to guess at a good many things which he wanted to know more about, but which had not yet been revealed unto him. Ten years ago there was no Babcock test, no acid test for cream ripening, and no curd test for detecting dirty milk. At the present time, however, all this is changed. It is no longer necessary to wait until the cream rises on milk to find out how rich it is, neither are we obliged to trust to our senses of taste and of smell to tell us when cream is ready to churn. The Babcock test will show in ten minutes how much buterfat milk contains, and the acid tests will reveal at once the sourness of cream. Besides the...

TUBERCULOSIS IN DAIRY CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 January 1902

TUBERCULOSIS IN DAIRY CATTLE. We take the following extracts, relative to the infection of humans, from a paper read by Mr. J. E. Dean, of Woodlands, Maryborough, on Tuberculosis in Dairy Cattle, at the late Bundaberg Conference: " Some three or four years ago, two cows amongst the 40 head of which Her late Ma jesty's herd was composed were found to be in an advanced stage of tuberculosis. Upon applying the tuberculin test, thirty-four others were found to be affected-a most startling discovery indeed, especially as the whole pro duct of the herd was being consumed by Her Majesty and the members of her household. It is well-known that Her Majesty used both milk and cream very largely, yet she enjoyed good health, and lived to a ripe old age. We must admit that theory is not borne out by practice in this case at least; and I may say that, after more than twenty years'observation those who use the largest quantity of milk enjoy the best health. And I have been forced to the conclusion...

The Dairy. THE NIKENBAH CATTLE DIP. A LESSON IN CO-OPERATION. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 January 1902

The THE NIKENBAH CATTLE DIP. A LESSON IN CO-OPERATION. As instancing the value of coooperative effort in overcoming difficulties and obtaining an exceedingly satisfactory and also profitable result, the particulars relative to the above cattle dip are interesting. The dip can be seen to the left of the Pialba railway line, shortly after passing Colton Junction, a neat structure securely made and conveniently situated. The dip is erected on an acre of land, granted by the Divisional Board from the gravel reserve. It has been built to a plan obtained from Mr. Maclean, Stock Inspector, Maryborough. Briefly, the dimensions are:-Drafting yard, 44 by 44; V. Pen, 22 by 12 by 25; crush, 32 ft. by 2 ft.; dip, 36 ft. long by 2 ft. 9 in. wide by 7 it. deep; dripping race, 41 ft. long by 3 ft. wide.

HOW TO FEED CHICKENS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 January 1902

HOW TO FEED CHICKENS. Chickens with hens, or foster mothers, should be fed properly if we wish to have them grow quickly into fine birds. For the first few days after leaving the shell chicks eat little, and the best food for that time is hard-boiled egg and breadcumbs, 01* oatmeal. The egg and breadcrumbs should be well mixed, and fed when in a nice crumb state, and it should not be too wet or damp. After the first four or five days the egg can be discarded, and coarse oatmeal, or bran and pollard, used instead. Never, at any time, have their food " sloppy," for wet, sloppy food brings on liver complaints. When the chicks are a fortnight or three weeks old, they should be given a little cracked grain for their evening meal-cracked maize or wheat may be given on alternate evenings. Grit and green food, as well as animal food, must be given if we wish to have no stop in the chicks' growth. As well as careful and proper feeding, chicks require a proper sleeping place; if with a hen, t...

FACTS ABOUT FOWLS. Jno. M. Caughey, Rocklea. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 January 1902

FACTS ABOUT FOWLS; Jno. M. Caughey, Rocklea. There are probably more Leghorn, Ply mouth Rock, and Light Brahma fowls bred throughout the United States than of any other three breeds, and possibly of all breeds. The Leghorn will rank first an number, the Plymouth Rocks and Light Brahmas follow ing very closely. Upon the attention given to growing chicks during hot days will determine largely the suc cess at the close of the summer season. In hot weather young growing chicks suffer from heat, and need certain foods that do not pro duce fat, but more that bring bone and muscle. Eggs when they command only fourpence per dozen in the market should be carefully packed in salt and stored away far higher prices. This method will keep eggs nicely, and by December they will bring at least one shilling per dozen. Certainly the margin of profit at this figure is ample.
