MB. DAWSON: " You send a mob of swashbucklers to South Africa to show off their uniforms." (Labour Members: Hear, hear.) I have absolutely no respect for the man in this Colony who would volunteer his services to go over to South Africa Coward is not the correct term to use, cur is more correct, for he has more of the dog nature in him than human nature. My observation of dogs has been, tbat, when one dog gets another dog down, every other mongrel in the immediate neighbour hood thinks it's his bounden duty to bite the dog under neath; and, I say, the men to whom I refer, have more of the dog uature than human nature in them."

(Ap plause.) (He had been a member of what was called the Continuous Ministry for over eight years, and they had been charged with having been extravagant, and with having created an enormous deficit during the past year. He was willing to take the last eight years in connection with a tesc as to whether he was competent or not to manage the affairs of the State. (Inter ruption.) During that period the accumu lated surpluses amounted to £405,000, and the deficits to £536,000. (Applause.) That showed a deficiency of £120,000 in eight years. Against this there was £80,000 owing by the Imperial Government for money spent on contingents, ...

They laugh at us, those j»300 a year men, and we do not wonder at it, if we are such fools to return any one of them to power. The Government Candidates go for cutting down their own salaries first.

A SCANDALOUS LETTER. "Reynolds' Newspaper" London, prints the following scandalous effusion from "The Democratic Vanguard," Queen Street, Brisbane, a branch of the Labour Party, Queensland, which puts this State upon as despicable a ground as could be:-" I must congratulate you, on behalf of the Socialists of Queensland, for the brave and admirable fight you are waging against the bloody crime being perpetrated by an iniquitous and tyrannical Government on the freedom-loving Boers. It is most refreshing to us here, after the mendacious lying and hypocriny of the capitalistic Press, to get your paper and read your outspoken and humanitarian views on the war. The Federal elections of Queensland, which took place last month, proved a veritable triumph for Labour and pro-Boerism. It was the greatest victory ever achieved by Labour in Australia, or, indeed, the world. The Labour Party practically swept the polls. Of six Senators endorsed by the Government party, only one crept in, last b...

A MOTHER'S WORTH. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 March 1902

A MOTHER'S WORTH. Many a discouraged mother folds her tired hands at night, and feels as if she had, after all, done nothing (although she had not spent an idle moment since she rose. Is it nothing that your little helpless children had some one to come to with all their childish griefs and joys? Is it nothing that your husband feels " safe" when he is away to his business, because your careful- hand directs everything at hidme? Is it nothing, when his business is over, that he has the blessed refuge of home, which you have that day done your best to brighten and refine? Oh, weary and faithful mother! you little know your power when you say: "I have done nothing." There is a book in which a fairer record than this is written over against your name.

Scientific Butter Making. FERMENTATION STARTER. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 March 1902

Scientific Butter Making. FERMENTATION bTARTEB. 11 Fermentation starter " is the designation applied to the portion of fermented or soar milk, batter milk, or cream, whioh Is added to the oream to ripen it for churning. The ripening of the oream consists of the development of the ferment or ferments whioh are added to it, or whioh get into it from the atmosphere, from contact with vessels or utensils, or from other sources. It is quite important that every batter maker should have on hand a fermentation starter of pure clean flavour, and of a uniform smooth consistency. The following is the way in whioh a culture of lactic ferment was made at the Central Experimental Farm Dairy, from whioh " fer mentation starters" were prepared:-A quantity of about two quarts of skim milk was heated to 205 degs. Fahr. The temperature was main tained at that point for ten minutes, after which, and while exposed to the atmosphere of the butter-making room, by stirring, dipping, or pouring from one ve...

HOW TO RENOVATE A CLOTH DRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 March 1902

HOW TO RENOVATE A CLOTH DRESS. Take the skirt of the waist-band, and un pick enough to allow it to lie perfectly flat; then arrange an ironer s dress-board on two chair backs; get a basin of hot water and liquid ammonia; set in the seat of the chair where it will be handy. Next get a piece of cloth, any sort will do, such as tweed or covert coat ing. Cut it about half a yard square or less, and have three or four very hot irons at the fire. These are the most important, as they must be just under scorching point, and a stiff clothes-brush will be needed. Having col lected all the requisites and spread the dress over the board, dip the piece of cloth in the water, and wring it out as dry as possible; then spread it like a patch over the dress, smooth it down, and iron quickly with the hottest iron. As soon as the iron has passed over the whole surface of the patch, tear it quickly off, and while the cloth below is steaming brush up the nap with the clothes-brush, and leave it while y...

THE DAIRY. The Milking of Cows. Gov. Dairy Instructor, Adelaide, S.A. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 March 1902

1 THE DAIRY. I .& &> jJfcsfc.sS*-rf?Lsfcj«i .sJwft-sSwSr sSWt«fc-5& ^z^iv The Milking of Cows. By G. S. THOMSON, NDD.R Gov. Dairy Instructor, Adelaide, S.A. Milking is a very important branch of the work of the dairy farm. It is BO important that, unless the milker knows how to do it properly, the owner of the cows will lose a lot of money. Not only will your parents lose money, but the factories will also suffer loss, because it is in the factory where large quantities of butter and cheese are made. You will wonder why this should happen. It will seem strange to some of you to be told that you, young as you are, do work upon which much of the success of dairying depends. Let me explain how this is. Everyone knows that milk soon gets sour in the summer weather; but you do not know what causes the milk to lose its sweet taste and become acid. The chief reasons for this change are as follows :-The milk has been allowed to come into contact with particles...

HEADACHES. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 March 1902

HEADACHES. Too much blood in the brain is a frequent cause of headache. Pains are felt ail over the head, the face becomes flushed, the tem ples throb, and strong light or noise causes excruciating pain. In cases of this kind the sufferer should be careful in diet, and should not eat meat oftener than once a day. Too little blood in the brain is another cause of headache. It is recognised by dizziness, noises in the ears, and pains on top of the head. The best stimulant is a cup of strong tea or coffee or a bowl of soup. People who suffer with these headaches should sleep with their heads low. A neuralgic headache is often the result of cold caught in a bad tooth, which affects the nerves of the face, and is accom panied by pains across the forehead or on the back of the head. A mustard leaf placed on the nape of the neck is said to relieve it.

HOW TO ARRANGE FLOWERS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 March 1902

HOW TO ARRANGE FLOWERS. You will really be delighted with this very effective method. It comes from Japan, and is quite new. Secure a piece of ordinary sheet lead, about i in. wide and J in. thick, bend "into an irregular snake, as it were, lying upon one edge, so that the undulating ribbon of lead can have the tips of the stalks of such blossoms that have woody stems--lilac, almond blossom, branches of roses, etc.-inserted among the folds, and the pliable lead squeezed together* till it holds them in a vice. If tliis foundation be concealed with wet moss, or placed in a flat dish with water, and hidden among foliage or low-growing flowers, the effect is that of miniature trees, and the full beauty of the individual sprays can be appreciated. The long, plain grass specimen vases, with a single flower in each, the upper part tied with a dainty ribbon bow, always look well. The old-fashioned centre glasses, with three trumpet-shaped branches springing from a shal low bowl, can be made...

Wasps for Figs. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 March 1902

Wasps for Figs. The secretary of agriculture, U.S. A, has given his assen I and approval to a course of experiments, which, if all that is hoped from it is realized, will result in a wonderful expansion of fig culture in California, and in the course of a few years, in a marked change in the matter of fig importation, now an important item in the foreign commerce of the country. This course of experiments has for its object the domestica tion, so to speak, of the wasp-blastophoga psenes-in California as the necessary aid to raising " Smyrna figs," the standard fig of commerce. The function which this indiepensable wasp performs in fig culture is a peculiar and interesting one. Very few of the hnndreds of varieties of edible figs cultivated in different parts of the world have fertile seeds. Cultiva tion, which has increased the size of the fig itself and thickened the meaty receptacle which incloses the true flowers and fruit, has done so at the expense of the stamens or male flower...
