Woman's World. LOOKING-GLASSES. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 25 June 1900

LOOKING-GLASSES. Who has not known the discomfort of a bad looking-glass, wherein one's reflection has ap peared distorted and discoloured, and older in appearance by ten years than the original? Such looking-glasses are responsible for some of the ill-temper that darkens the world, just as me more flattering kind of glass is to be credited with producing oil occasion that sun shine that lights up a good-humoured face. Of the two extremes we advocate the flattering glass. The best way to choose a glass is to hold against the surface a piece of white paper and note if the reflection be of as pure a white as that of the paper; if not the glass is not good- Note also the thickness of the glass ; the thicker it is the better. There are girls to whom the knowledge that the) are looking their best is better than any cosmetic. It brightens their eyes, gives gaiety to their smiles, and pleasantness to their man ner, whereas the opposite conviction oppresses them with dullness, and deprives ...

Home Notes. CULTIVATE A SWEET VOICE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 25 June 1900

Horne Notes CULTIVATE A SWEET VOICE. There is no power of life so hard to keep as a kind voice, but it is hard to get it and keep in the right tone. One must start in youth, and be on the watch night and day, while at work and while at play, to get and keep a voice which shall speak at all times the thought of a kind heart. But this is the time when a sharp voice is more apt to be acquired^ You often hear boys and girls say words at play with a quick, sharp tone, almost like the snap of a whip. If any of them gets vexed you hear a voice which sounds as if it were made up of a snarl, a snap, and a bark. Such a voice often speaks worse than the heart feels. It shows more ill-will in tone than in words. It is often in mirth that one gets a voice or a tone which is sharp, and which sticks to him through life, and stirs up ill-will and grief, and falls like a drop of gall on the listener. Some people have a sharp home voice for use, and keep their best voice for those they meet elsewhere...

The Horse. (Continued). [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 25 June 1900

(ConMtifoed)*c WATERING HORSES WHEN WARM.-There is a common notion among users of horses, that if a horse is warm he should not be allowed to drink, many claiming that the " first swallow" of water either " founders" the animal or produces colic. This is not true. It does not matter how much heated the horse may be, it is always safe to give him half-a-dozen swallows of water. If this water is given just before being put in the stable, the animal should be immediately supplied with a few pounds of hay, and should not be fed on grain until the animal has rested about an hour. The danger is not in the " first swallow," but is always due to the large quantity which the animal will take when warm, if allowed to drink without restrain. Over one-half of the digestive disorders are undoubtedly caused by improper feeding and watering; hence one can readily see the importance of a proper under standing of these subjects. GRAINS.-Oats take precedence of all grains as a food for horses, as the...

THE MANAGEMENT OF A BUSH HOUSE DURING THE WINTER MONTHS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 25 June 1900

THE MANAGEMENT OF A BUSH HOUSE DURING THE WINTER MONTHS. There is no time in the year that plants require careful treatment more than during the winter months. One over-dose of water at tJtie wrong time proves very detrimental to their successful culture during the cold weather, especially so when not thoroughly established, either in the open ground or when grown in pots. Successful culture depends largely on the judicious use of the water pot, and unless growers of plants study this essential part of the business their efforts will certainly end in failure. Watering should be done during the winter months in the early morning, beginning from the month of May to the end of August. Never water a plant unless it is really dry, and then give it sufficient Nothing is more injurious than giving them a little every day, whether they require it or not. Protect all plants from cold winds, and look to the shading of the bush-house, as too much shade is in jurious during the winter. Such pla...

FARM PRODUCE MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 25 June 1900

FARM PRODUCE MARKETS. The markets in general produce dur ing the past month have been very active. The supplies in the main lines have been plentiful, especially in potatoes and maize. Prices show a small decline from the last month's quotations owing to the heavy marketing of crops. The demand in the far western country, however, continues, and crushing operations in the su^ar centres has prevented much decline in prices. Potatoes are comng forward freely. Orangey are. in large supply, and prices are declining. Reports from the strawberry centres show an improve ment in the plants owing to good rains. Vegetables are in short supply, and good apples are in demand.

Lockyer Farmers Visit to the Gatton Agricultural College. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 25 June 1900

Lockyer Farmers Visit to the Gatton Agricultural College. On May 29th, upwards of 120 members and friends of the Lockyer Agriculture and Indus trial Society visited the Gatton College on the invitation of the Principal, Mr. Mahon, and as the weather was fine throughout the day, and the officers of the College did their utmost to entertain their visitors, and to furnish every information relative to the work of the College, the visit proved both enjoyable and instructive. A large party arrived by train from Laidley and Forest Hill at the College siding where vehicles were waiting for the ladies, the men contenting themselves with walking the short distance to the College, where had already ar rived a large number of invited ones from Gatton. The visitors were first shown the imported stock on the estate.

The Warrego Selectors' Association. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 25 June 1900

The Warrego Selectors' Association. As showing what may be done by the aid of co-operation, we give the following re cord of the efforts of the above association: - This association was originally formed in 1897 as the Charleville Branch of the Selec tors' Association of Queensland, the first pre sident being Mr. John Armstrong. Its objects were to obtain a reduction of the ex cessive rents paid by selectors, an amelioration of the conditions under which selections are held with regard to fencing, residence, and the various other ways in which the small holder is unfairly handicapped, and generally to fur ther the interests of selectors in every legiti mate manner. Mr. John Armstrong, President Warrego Selectors' Association, Mayor of Charleville. Soon after the inception of the association the Land Act now in force was brought before Parliament, and a number of amendments were, after discussion by the association, urged upon the Minister for Lands, both directly and by a largely si...

ON CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 25 June 1900

ON CALVES. The important point in calves, as with pigs, is to feed the milk right; it must be intelli gently fed. A point to be emphasized is that all changes in the feed of the calf must be made gradually (the calf is a baby cow) mid any derangement of the digestion must be cor rected at once. The aim should be to keep the calf growing and thrifty at all times ; never stunt it. A few points require careful atten tion. For the first week or ten days of its life, the calf should have whole milk from the cow, 8 or 9 pounds a feed, twice a day. At the end of this time shart to gradually change to skim milk, and in one week make the ration one half skim milk and one-half whole milk. Dur ing the next week continue the change, and at the end of that time the calf requires three quarters skim milk and one-quarter whole milk. At the end of the third week, after beginning the change from whole milk to skim milk, or when the calf is thirty days old, it should be fed on skim milk diet unless i...

"Queensland Country Life" (ILLUSTRATED). VOL. I. (New Series) BRISBANE. JUNE 25. No. 4 [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 25 June 1900

"Queensland Country Life"     (ILLUSTRATED). VOL. I. (New Series) BRISBANE. JUNE 25. No. 4 OUR readers will receive with this issue two supplements in Collotype which at this junc- ture will, we feel sure, be appreciated. One is of the Hon. Robert Philp, Premier of the Colony, and his two sons, and claims first place, partly because of the lengthy tour the Premier has just made and the unfolding of the future Government policy, and also because of the early opening of Parliament ; but chiefly owing to the high respect that the Premier is held by all classes throughout Queensland. His two sons also claim recognition as stalwart representatives of the Colony. One is showing this attribute in a practical way, being with the Third Contingent of Queensland troops in South Africa. The plate is from a negative from the well-known art photographers, Wiley, Queen Street, who are to be congratulated upon this, the latest photograph of the Premier, which all acknowled...
