The Baby Did It. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 February 1902

The Baby Did It. BY INA LEON CASSILIS. " Aye, aye, come in," said the Boer farmer -woman in very fair English to the tall, tiandsome Highland sergeant, who eame to ask for some water and a rest for himself and iialfa-dozan men. There was a white flag iflying from the roof, but Ian Cameron .depended less apon that than upon the faot ihat-so far as he knew-there were none of ^he enemy within twelve or fifteen miles. " An* thank ye kindly, mem," said he, with ihe courtesy of his raoe and profession; and -the little troop, weary and footsore, followed ihe vrouw into the one kitohen and sitting and perhaps sleeping-room of the farm. An .elderly Boer, of the customary heavy, sullen iype, got up, pipe in hand, from his ehair, with a grant whieh might mean welcome or the reverse. On a little orib bed in the corner of the rade apartment, a baby of some seven -or eight months old lay whimpering and -tossing from side to side. It paused a moment ^o stare at the strangers, and then began ^whimp...

Raising Calves with Skim-milk. (Kansas Dairy Association). [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 February 1902

Raising Calves with Skim-milk. BY PROFESSOR J. A. CONOVER. (Kansas Dairy Association). I will tell you how we raise our calves here at the college. We allow them to run with the cow for the first four or five days, or until the milk becomes fit for use. It is absolutely necessary for the best health of the calf, that it should have the colostrum, or first milk. This is a substance very easily digested, is rich in albumen and salts, and is a perfect regulator of the liver and bowels, and must not be withheld from the calf. A good many farmers object to raising hand fed calves because they claim it is such a bother to teach them to drink. The secret of the whole matter is in letting the calf get hungry before you attempt to give him milk. We do not try to give our calves anything until they have been away from the cow twenty-four hours and sometimes longer. It is then an easy matter to teach the little feilow to drink. If he is a little obstinate at first, let him suck the finger a ti...

THE DAIRY. Pasteurisation. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 February 1902

: THE DAIRY. I . j&tefe $f?-?fr-5{?-$? sSwfc-tfwfc-sfeSiA Pasteurisation. BY DR. THOM&S CHERRY, M.D., M.S. (Lecturer on Bacteriology, Melb. University). In view of the fact that a large number of cour factories will be adopting pasteurisation . during the coming season, I have been asked to state as concisely as possible the reasons why this movement is of the utmost importance with regard to the future of the industry, and ^what are the direct benefits likely to be derived from it. WHAT 18 PASTEURISATION ? Pasteurisation is called after Pasteur, the great French chemist, who was in many respects the founder of bacteriology. Pasteur -discovered that the cause of fermentation was the growth of microscopic plants. These plants are so small that they escape detection except <by the highest powers of the microscope. They are so widespread and numerous that a little -dust contains them by the hundred, and a drop -of dirty water by the thousand. Everyone knows t...

IMPORTANT! and Exporters and all Interested in Dairying. We have the pleasure to remind you that . . . a IS STILL The Leading Preservative In the Australasian Colonies^ We would WARN YOU against the use of LOW PRICED PRESERVATIVES. The Departmental Committee in London appointed to enquire into the use of Food Preservatives has now given its report, which is to the effect that WE MUST NOT USB MORE THAN ONE HALF PER CENT. OF BORIC ACID IN OUR EXPORT BUTTER. We would point out that BORIC ACID by itself and in MIXTURES of many varieties has been used as a preservative with varying degrees of success, but we find that many of the leading firms in the world now regard these haphazard MIXTURES OF THE CRUDE MATERIALS as unsuitable, and now confine themselves exclusively to " PRESERYITAS" as by far the best and most reliable for their pan ose. " PRESERVITAS " IS AN EXTREMELY DRY, SOLUBLE, AND PERFECTLY BALANCED PREPARATION, SPECI ALLY MANUFACTURED UNDER DIFFICULT AND EXPENSIVE CONDITIONS. It...

BOONAH. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 February 1902

BOONAH. BY W. C. -J. [[ RADUALLY ascending the slopes of the Fassifern Range we reach the highest point of the railway line at Teviotville, 596 feet above the sea level. Four miles beyond, descending some 250 feet, we arrive at Boonah, a picturesque township surrounded by rich scrub land and forest, and the main business centre of the Fassifern district, 35 miles from Ipswich. It is only within recent years that Boonah has established itself as a prosperous township. The main street (of which we give a view) has a series of very substantial-looking shops, and some that might for the sake of the appear HIGH STREET, BOONAH. ance of the town be pulled down and replaced by modern buildings.

The Premier's Manifesto to the Electors. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 February 1902

The Premier's Manifesto to the Electors. HON. B. PHILP, PBEMIEB. THE following address to the electors of Townsville has been issued by the Premier, the Hon. R. Philp. GENTLEMEN, I respectfully solicit a renewal of of the confidence you have been pleased to bestow on me during the last fourteen years. Since I last sought your suffrage it has fallen to my lot to form a Ministry. I am grateful for the loyal support accorded to that Ministry during its two years of office, and I trust that its actions will receive the Approval of the people at the coming Elec tions. The Parliament about to be dissolved will be ever memorable on account of two events to which I should make some reference. Under the authority of that Parliament Queensland voluntarily assumed her share of Imperial responsibilities by sending her sons to uphold in South Africa the honour oi the British Flag and the integrity of the British Empire. How manfully and skil fully they acquitted themselves is now a matter of his...

Answers to Correspondents. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 February 1902

Answers to Correspondents. H. S., Gladstone-The British War Office has expended a sum of ;£i 3,000,000 on pur chase of horses for troops since the beginning of the war in South Africa. J. H., Dugandan.-We referred your enquiry to Mr. F. McCaffrey, manager for Messrs. Waugh and Josephson, Brisbane, a reliable authority on all matters relating to dairying. He states:-The breed of cattle known to dairy farmers as the 11 South Coast breed " should be termed the " Illawarra breed." They are the descendants of the old Yorkshire Shorthorn imported to Illawarra nearly a century ago from England, and originally bred in Illawarra. The terms Milk Shorthorn and Milk Durham amount to the same thing, just as the terms Durham and Shorthorn are used in fat stock. In the Richmond and Tweed River districts of N S. Wales the Milk Shorthorns are big animals, and perhaps this is one of the reasons why the* term Milking Durham is so often used there. The whole of the prizes (so far as I know) were won at...

Paralysis in Pigs. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 February 1902

Paralysis in Pigs. From complaints made by farmers in the Harrisville district as to a certain disease attacking their pigs with fatal results, we have made careful enquiries from two or three large pig breeders, and find that from the symptoms described the disease is caused by worms on the kidneys. In one particular case where the breeder had a very valuable sow attacked, great efforts were made to save he life, but although the disease was warded off for certain periods, she eventually had to be destroyed. When the animal is first observed to be attacked, a hot water flannel fomentation should be placed on the back over the kidneys. After this has been on some time the back should be well rubbed with turpentine and a little oil mixed, and this should be persevered with at short intervals until the pig regains the use of its legs. If possible a small quantity of turpentine should also be applied inwardly, as this would have a greater effect on the kidneys than the outward applicat...

VER half a century ago, at the time when Ludwig Leichhardt and his party, after braving the perilous 3000 mile journey over new country from Moreton Bay to Port Essington, were coming southward in the schooner n Heroine " to startle the people of Sydney, who had given the intrepid band of explorers up as lost, there drifted on to the southern shore of Cleveland Bay, North Queensland, a seabeaten raft, on which w,ere lying exhausted and almost dying, seven miserable castaways-among them a woman. They were all that was left of twenty one who had, on that same frame of timbers and spars forty-two days before, escaped from the wreck, on the Minerva shoal Great Barrier reef, of the ship 11 Peruvian," of Dundee, which had sailed from Svdnev. China bound, in February, 1846. The raft had somehow got over the Great Barrier reef, but of its original occupants only one-third lived to see the land.
