Woman's World. What is Worn. THE BLOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 April 1902

Woman's World. What is Worn. THE BLOUSE. To try to give any fixed law as to the making of the indispensable blouse would be impossible; the detail may be whatever any mind suggests that is graeefal and pretty ; the fronts and backs are decidedly fall and pouched, and ribbon belts, bowed at the back} are favorable to finish the waist. Makers of fashions have been threatening the decline and fall of the shirt waist, bat without success. It is too useful and com fortable a garment to part with, and in spite of the warning note which prophesises its decadence at the beginning of each new season, we go and buy just as many of the prettiest as we can afford. With a shirt-waist nothing is so really smart as a plain linen collar. You may wear any kind of tie, from the short " bat wing " to the long Ascot, or four-in-hand. Transparent collars are still popular, and on these one sees all sorts of embroidery and applique. Leather belts are to be much worn-very narrow and of all colors. For the...

Blood Poisoniog (Malignant (Edema) in Sheep After Shearing and Lambs After Doc&ing. BY J. A. GILKUTH, M.R.C.V.S. This disease, which occurs daring the opera tions of shearing sheep and castrating and docking lambs, is the cause of' considerable loss annually to sheep-breeders in several districts of the colony. Generally the first thing that draws the owner's attention seriously to the condition of bis flock is the discovery, in from thirty-six to forty-eight hours after docking or shearing, of * few dead sheep lying in various parts of the paddooks. Next morning he finds a few more dead, and so on for three or four days, when, as a rule, the mortality ceases. SYMPTOMS.-On account of the gregarious habits of the sheep, an ailing animal, unless exhibiting very violent symptoms, is easily overlooked. In the early stages of this disease the animal seems listless, disinclined to move about, and, if the sun is shining strongly, prefers to lie in the shade. If forced to move, the ...

How to Fatten a Horse [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 April 1902

How to Fatten a Horse Fattening a horse in a short space of time is considered a great art, and usually a very difficult one. Some are of opinion that to bring a horse up to a certain standard of fresh be must be given some special kind of medicine, while others think he onght to be fed on uncommon food. A good stable, plenty of good corn, oats, bran, and fodder, and enough straw for a good, clean bed are among the requisites for fattening a horse. Boil one pint of flaxseed in one quart of water, and with this tea make a mash of one and one iialf gallons of bran, into which mix one tablespoonfdl of powdered brimstone, one of saltpetre, and give to the horse every eight days, being careful not to let the horse drink any water for 12 hours afterwards. Wrap in a piece of litaen one OUDCO of assafedita and nail to the bottom of the manger, from which the horse iB fed. Daring the fattening process give the animal, each day for four days two and one-half gallons of grain and six bundles o...

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

Answers to Correspondents. J. KEEN, LONGBEACH.-To find the co?t of wool when olean scoured-which, we take it, is what yon require-is done in this way : Supposing a wool cost 7£d per lb in the grease, and would yield when scoured 46 per cent, of olean wool, then the cost of that scoured wool would be 16£d per lb. Multiply the price per lb (greasy) by 100, and divide by the yield. JUNIPER, BOWEN.-We koow of severs! methods for curing sheepskins, but the following can be thoroughly relied on:-If dry, soak them in water till quite soft. Scrape off auy flesh or fat that may be present, weJl wash them in soap and warm water; wring out, but do not rinse. Then leave them for about two days in a mixture made as follows: To five gallons of soft water add three and a half pounds of common salt, stir well to dissolve. Then add one and a quarter pounds of commercial sulphuric acid, and stir again. It should now taste keen like vinegar, but should not burn the tongue. This mixture may cause the h...

CARE OF THE FINGER NAILS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 April 1902

CARE OF THE FINGER NAILS. Nothing betrays the careless woman sooner than her nails, and nothing shows refinement better than the possession of well-kept nails. Bands with beautiful nails always please, and the eye dwells on them with a peculiar satis faction. For, in a senae, nails are veritable jewels, whioh decorate the fingers, even while performing the nails' great office-that of pro tection. It is very easy to keep the nails in good trim. Less than five minutes allowed them regularly each day will be all that is required. They need weekly cutting with a proper pair of nail scissors, and the cutting should exactly follow the outline of the finger ends. A piece of lemon used once or twice a week is nearly a necessity; if nails are to be kept alright. The aoid acts on the nail substance with a wonderful effect of polishing, and it softens the skin marvellously, that is apt to drop itself forward over the shining nail sur face. Any dirt about the nails, any stain of ink or fruit, t...

The Secret of Eternal Youth. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 April 1902

The Secret of Eternal Youth. Mme. Sarah Bernhardt says that "the secret of her endurance is that she never rests." I( Fatigue," she adds, " is my stimu lant. Instead of pulling me down, it spurs mo on." She goes to bed at three in the morn ing, invariably, and always rises at nine. As for ~ the visual prescriptions for preservation of health, they receive scant attention from her. She always drives, generally in a clo3ed carri age, to and from the theatre, where she spends eleven or twelve hours every day " without seeing the light of the sun, and without a breath of fresh sir." Her diet consists of fish and eggs, chiefly the latter, of which she eats sometimes as many as ten a day, and she never drinks anything but champagne. Dar ing two months out of the twelve, however, Mme* Sarah Bernhardt " makes up,'1 as she puts it, for the anti-hygienic conditions of her town life. At Belle Isle she is hardly ever indoors, and when she is, she keeps every window in the house wide open in all...
