AGRICULTURE Produce Markets. FRUIT AND VEGETABLES. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 May 1902

Produce Markets. FBUIT AND VEGETABLES# As we advised, the market rates of general produce remains very high, and, as winter is now setting in, there is little prospect of a reduction, unless heavy shipments of New Zealand or Argentine produce arrives, of which there are rumours. An extraordinary scene was witnessed last week at Laidley, the centre of the famous Lockyer farming district. The railway yard presented a scene of animation, both novel and strange, a scene that was unique in the annals of Laidley. The sen sation started when 15 empty waggons arrived in procession from Prenzlau, a farming and dairying centre some 17 miles distant. Then came a further large contingent from Hatton Vale and Plainland, and before noon about 40 waggons were drawn up before the trucks detraining wheaten and mixed chaff from the Darling Downs. Strange to say, scarcely a truck load of local stuff came into the station, the chaff in question having been procured by the farmers for the purpose of kee...

PASTORAL Stock and Station. MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 May 1902

Stock and Station. MARKETS. The continued absence of rain and the rapid approach of winter has had a hardening effect upon all prices of stock, but this advance if, we consider, only small compared to what they will be before the winter is over, and the out look throughout the colony is very serious. Except in a few isolated places as the table lands and pockets on the northern coast rivers and a few favoured spots on the Thompson and Barcoo, the heads of the Brisbane river, and the Logan and Albert, around Tamrookum and Kerry, grass scarcely exists, while a sharp winter may be expected. At the late London wool sales prices advanced at from 5 to 10 per cent compared with the March sales, prices for Merino wools advancing 7£ per cent and Cross-breds 10 per cent. The Brisbane wool sale held on the 8th inst was considered to be the best sinoe the Inauguration of these sales. The attendance was a record one, and values showed an increase of from 10 to 15 per cent on the prices xealized ...

Woman's World. Fickle Kate. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 May 1902

Woman's World. Fickle Kate. A little fickle maid of five had many dolls; eaoh had been loved in tarn, and thrown aside. The one that oried in imitation of herself she 4)eat, in imitation of her nurse, thinking that ^what cured naughtiness in her was surely gyod for dolly. The sailor and the soldier had, in turn, their day, and one or other for a time held sway until she reached thirteen. For three years more in private they were nursed, until the new curate came and caught her fancy. "The next wore blue, the third a scarlet coat; and so the game went on, while eaoh made target of her heart. But when the total of £ier lover swains did reach a score, she changed these triflers for a husband, as one might exchange twenty silver shillings for a golden pound. Thus did she take a husband -iot her sovereign, who did reign amid great ^popularity for just one year, until a babe was born, and it until another came next year, and «o on again; for six full years fresh monarchs came, and all in ...

AN EXTRAORDINARY ROAD RACE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 May 1902

AN EXTRAORDINARY ROAD RACE. One of the most extraordinary road raoes ever run was undertaken by John Lepton, a groom in the service oi King James I. In 1604 Lepton rode five times between London and York, starting on a Monday morning and finishing on the Saturday night. Particulars of this curious race against time are wanting, and it is not known what number of horses were used, or even what season of the year saw the performance. In any event it was a most creditable feat of endurance on the man's part, as the distance, 985 miles, gives an average of nearly seven miles an hour for six days, nothing being allowed for stoppages. Extensive additions, says the Colonist, are now being made to the Aldershot Smelting Works to cope with the increase of business from all parts of the Commonwealth. The chief work is a new calcining shed, 70ft. by 42ft. This will cover a large oalcining furnace, in the construction of which from 25,000 to 80,000 bricks will be used. The contractor for the wo...

Reason in Animals. A REMARKABLE STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 May 1902

Reason in Animals. A REMARKABLE STORY. One of the most marvellous instances of reasoning powers was displayed by a horse owned by a Mr. A., who lived near the town of Nashville, Tennessee; and the writer guaran tees the accuracy of the following statement: The owner had, in the coarse of business, to aooept the animal in payment of a debt; but having no use for a horse, and not oaring to inour the expense of its keep, he offered it for sale. However, as it did not find a purchaser, it was perforce retained, though it was con sidered a not very valuable asset. Daring the next two years, the animal's faculties greatly developing, Mr. A. conceived the idea of riding the horse without * bridlo and driving it without a bit, thus leaving it j mouth untouched, using a saddle only for his own comfort and traces to attach the buggy when driving. When he wanted it to turn to the right or left he mere patted its hindquarters and spoke to it, and that was sufficient. When the owner walked about...

Feminine Dairy Wisdom. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 May 1902

Feminine Dairy Wisdom. BY DOROTHY TUGKEB. If there is trouble in getting the batter to oome, it may be that the oream is too old, that it has been held too long. If the oream is too ooid it will swell in the oharn and there will be trouble in getting the butter to oome. Raise the temperature of the cream gradually to about 70 deg. This may be done by adding warm water; never hot water, as it may scald the oream. A better way is to put hot water in a tin pail and swing about in the oream, changing it as it. oools, until the oream is brought up to the right temperature. If the butter gathers in large lumps it is too warm. If it will not come together, it may be too cold. After the butter is gathered, draw off all the buttermilk. Then wash the butter with pure water until it oomes off olear. Salt one ounce to the pound, and work lightly and paok quickly in small, neat packages. II pay*, much better to make the bulk of butter in tbe winter. Give the oows comfortable quarters and they wi...

A REMARKABLE RIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 May 1902

A REMARKABLE BIDE. A very remarkable ride has just keen accom plished by M. de Leys, an officer in the Swiss army, on a thoroughbred named Beano, by Lichfield, who was imported from England, where he had won the Wood DalJing Steeple chase and the Budgay Farmers' Cup. M. de Leys rode him from Zurich to Berne, Thonne, Lucerne, and then bsck to Zurich, the distance being 190 mileB, in 87 honrs 7 minutes. This does not give an average of much over five miles an hour, but it must be remembered that the ride was throughout in a very mountainous country, with differences of level equal to nearly 2,000ft. Beano had on route about 851b of oats, 171b of hay, 101b of dry bread, and 21b of sugar. He was quite fresh at the end of the journey, and his owner rode him the next day at the military exercises of his regiment. The officer who came in second did the distance in 40 hours, his horse carrying 14st 2lb, and of the six other officers who took part in the ride, four completed the distance.
