Round the Shops. FINNEY, ISLES, & CO. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 April 1902

Round the Shops FINNEY, ISLEB, & CO. Some of the pretties and very latest novel ties for the coining season are gathered together in Messrs. Finney, Isles, and Co.'s this month. In every department there is much to admire, bat, perhaps, to the feminine mind and taste, that devoted to the lace and ribbons, which are now such necessities for the beautifying of millinery and dress trim mings, is the most important and interesting. A large window Is elaborately draped in rioh Oriental?, Guipure, Duche8Be, ^imeriok, Honiton, Maltese, in silk and thread, silk and real Tor ehons and Valencien nes. In sertions in twine, biscuit, cream and black, and piece lace in silk embossed flowers is also in abundance, to match any costume. The newest thing in ribbons is the serpentine, in plain and floral designs, which is to be much used in skirt trimmings, and black Batin, from a»quarter of an inch to an inch and a-half wide, is still used for strapping purposes. For millinery, there is a ple...

The Boy on the Farm. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 April 1902

The Boy on the Farm. BY J. ROBINSON, LAIDLEY. We often hear farmers complain that they cannot keep tbeir sons on the farm. They drift away to the city or busy centres, attracted, their fathers say, by the chance of short hours, more leisure for amusement, company and better wages, and because they do not like to feel themselves countrified against other young men who live in the city and wear fashionable clothes. It is unfortunately too true that the fathers themselves are often grumbling about farm life, and pretending to envy those who make their living in the city. Is it any wonder, then, that the lads want to be off ? But let us look fairly at the matter. Has the farm no attractions of its own ? Of course it has. First take the farmers independence* He needs no man's favour and fears no man's frown, and he can speak his mind fearlessly anywhere. Then, on the farm there is plenty of room. You might even find a place to practice the cornet without infringing the rights of any Brit...

ALLAN & STARK. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 April 1902

ALLAN & STARK. As usual, there is an immense variety of very pretty, and by no means expensive, novelties to be seen in every department of Messrs. Allan and Stark's large warehouse, where the windows are replete with all the very latest winter materials to suit every taste and any lenih of purse. The new goods are so pretty and diverge that it is impossible to say which ifr the favorite color or fabrio, but it eetmB as if the majority were of plain color and rather soft weave. Blouses include many pretty ones in glace siifc in almost every oolor, and so finely tucked as to resemble cording; touches of lace are to be seen on most of the daintiest, while others have strappings of white 1 satin ribbon. The rage for ruffles, collars, and other pretty neck ac cessories appears to be ever on the increase, and very many new designs, both in lace and sequins, are to be seen in this firm's windows. The fashionable ostrich boas, in black, white, and blaok and white, are marked from I...

AGRICULTURE Produce Markets. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 April 1902

Produce Markets. Although welcome rains have lately fallen in Yictoria and N.S. Wales, it is to be regretted tliat the drought still continues in this State, thus delaying early ploughing. The weather has been windy and cold with little or no rain, oonscquently grass is very scarce, and stock in a deplorable condition. It is estimated that the wheat crop of 8. Australia, Victoria, and New South Wales combined is some 18,000,000 bushels less than was estimated in December last. Wheat becoming scarce in these States should have the effect of further enhancing values in the local market. Consignments are daily coming forward for the Auction Sale shortly to be held, and which, we predict, will be a success. Prices in other lines have also advanced to an appreciable extent, and are likely to continue at high rates for several months ahead. The following are the current rates: Chaff.-Lucerne-prime 6s lOd to 10s per cwt; medium, 4s 9d to 5s 6d; oaten, Bs 6d to 5s 6d; wheaten, 23 9d to 8s 6...

Notes of the Month. The Late Hon. Cecil Rhodes. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 April 1902

Notes of the Month. The Late Hon. Cecil Rhodes. If tbe question bad been put to the vote a short time back as to who was the most remarkable of living men, the late Oeeil Rhodes would have no doubt occupied a position very nearly at the head of the list. It seems only lately that we heard of his being in London, having audiences with prominent Statesmen, uid using all the great personal attributes which he possessed in the furthering of his t^pheme, viz., the placing of South Africa nader one great Commonwealth and the bringing of Egypt into touch with the Cape, across tbe thousands of miles of intervening country.. It is hard for a man to be plucked off when just in sight, as it were, of the Promised Land: Possessed of vast means and great personality, he died at the early age of 48, not, however, before seeing such fruit for his labour as rarely comes to successful men at a more advanced age. But the strain was too great, handicapped at the start of life as he was by ill-health. I...

Seduction of Members. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 April 1902

Seduction of Members. Now that the Premier has decided on a redaction of the number of Ministers and members of Parliament, "proportioned to the change in the status and revenue of Queensland, brought about by Federation, which has narrowed the field of State legisla tion, and removed more than one department from State control/9 it is as well to instance what has been done in other Commonwealths, which show the relative costs of provincial and Federal Parliaments in both. An analysis of Canadian precedents is both interesting and instructive. At the outset it may be stated that the territorial extent of the domain of Canada is about 850,000 square miles-equal to the area of New South Wales and Tas mania-larger than that of the Common wealth; and it has a population of a million and a half greater, whilst its legislative machinery (Federal and provincial) is piloted at a cost of over £17,000 less per annum. But the remarkable thing is the extraordinary difference in the details -tha...

Points of a Dairy Cow. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 April 1902

Points of a Dairy Cow. Every particular dairyman who selects a cow for dairying work has a more or less defined notion of what her form mast be, and how she mnst be built and finished, and while dairying qualities are not altogether dependent npon construction of the carcase, and many excep tions arise to any supposed rules, there is a well-established guiding principle that is near enough for all practical purposes. The law of judging a dairy cow is now, in the opinion of many modern judges, very closely allied to the development of her backbone and its append ages. The cow of large dairy performance is one that shows large spinal proportions and spinal cord. The heads of great milking cows are always fine and bony, with large protrud ing eyes, and a strong juncture of the spinal column to the head. The back should be roof like, never a flat back that obscures the spinal processes. The ribs should spring rafter-like away from the backbone, and should be far apart, and so give an op...

Prickly Pear. QUEENSLAND'S CURSE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 April 1902

Prickly Pear. QUEENSLAND'S CUBSE. Daring the past few years columns have been written in our many papers in Queens land about the Prickly Pear, and many ideas have been given for its eradication, but up to the present only a very few have tackled the clearing of the plant, although it has been quietly spreading over some of our very best agricultural lands. The Government have been trying to discover some method of poison ing the plant, but it cannot be said that their efforts have been crowned with success. A pear camp was started at Westbrook, and the pear treated with arsenic which certainly killed it, but at a cost of £4 9s 6d per acre, a figure quite outside the means of people who have land that is infested, and when clear only worth about £2 per acre. But the worst feature is that the poison is highly dangerous to make and use. At one time all the men were ill and they had to cease work for about JUNCH OF PBIOELY PEAB AT SANDGATE, FIYE DAYS AFTER TREATMENT WITH ADAMS' PRICKLY...

Plain Speaking to Working Men. MR. JOHN BURNS AND DOMESTIC LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 April 1902

Plain Speaking to Working Men. MR. JOHN BURNS AND DOMESTIC LIFE. Mr. John Barns gave what he deoribed as a " dressing down " to a gathering of working men in London, one Saturday evening lately. They might (said this plain-spoken mentor) brag of the Empire and the Army and Navy, they might " mafick " day in and day oat, hat all was unavailing unless they had sweet homes. Not always the sty, but often the pig was to blame. Many homes were vile and verminous because the workers' wages went to the publican, the pawnbroker, and that curse of modern soeiety, the bookmaker. (Cheers.) It made all the difference to the appearance of home whether a little will, soap, and love were brought into play, or whether leisure hours were spent in spotting winners and catching losers. (Cheers.) The working men he addressed were of the better sort, and he laid upon each the solemn injunction, not only to demand his rights and do his duty, but to become a moral and ethical centre whence personal advice,...
