THE DAIRY. Starting a Creamery. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 May 1902

&&H& & $ j? i THE DAIRY. I JL& ti Starting a Creamery. The first points to be considered are the locality and construction. In regard to the iormer, cows are a sine qua non. There is no use to attempt to develope a creamery business where the milk from at least 800 cows cannot be handily hauled. Aside from this, a con venient location with an abundance of good water and good drainage can be secured is good. The building should be so arranged that from the time the milk is poured into the weigh-can until the cream is in the churn the force of gravity alone carries it along. Allow ance should be made for the use of a heating or tempering vat for the milk before separa ting in cold weather, and for a cooling con ductor for the cream at all times. The walls may be of any material that will give a non conducting structure, as circumstances may diotate. The floors should be of concrete, finished with a top coat well troweled down and laid on a pitch...

IMPORTANT! To Butter Makers and JExporters and all Interested in Dairying. We bave the pleasure to remind you that ..... is STILL The Leading Preservative in the Australasian Colonies. We would WARN YOU against the use of LOW PRICED PRESERVATIVES. The Departmental Committee in London appointed to enquire into the use of Food Preservatives has now given its report, which is to the effect that WE MUST NOT USB MORE THAN ONE HALF PER CENT. OF BORIC ACID IN OUR EXPORT BUTTER. We would point out that BORIC ACID by itself and in MIXTURES of many varieties has been used as a preservative with varying degrees of success, but we find that many of the leading firms in the world now regard these haphazard MIXTURES OF THE CRUDE MATERIALS as unsuitable, and now confine themselves exclusively to 44 PBESERVITAS" as by far the best and most reliable for their purpose. " PRESERVITAS " IS AN EXTREMELY DRY, SOLUBLE, AND PERFECTLY BALANCED PREPARATION, SPECI ALLY MANUFACTURED UNDER DIFFICULT AND EXPENSI...

HORSEBRAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 May 1902

H0B8EBBAKE. Horse breaking as practised by the men of Yezo is graphically described by Miss Isabella Bird, bat it will not commend itself to British or Australian readers. The lady says :-'* A Japanese brought into the village street a handsome, spirited young horse, equipped with a Japanese demipiqae saddle, and a most cruel gag bit. The man wore very orael spars, and was armed with a bit of stoat board, 2ft. long by 6in. broad. The horse had not been mounted before, and was frightened, bat not the least vicious. He was sparred into a gallop, and ridden at fall speed up and down the street, tamed by main force, thrown on his haunches, goaded with the spurs, and oowed by being mercilessly thrashed over the ears and eyes with the pieoe of board till he was blind with blood. Whenever he tried to stop v from exhaustion, he was sparred, jerked, and flogged, till at last, covered with sweat, foam, and blood, and with blood running from his mouth and splashing the road, he reeled, stagger...

THE CONDITION OF THE ABORIGINALS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 May 1902

THE CONDITION OF THE ABORIGINALS. / V . HE various efforts of missionary enterprise among Queensland aboriginals having given scarcely any practical results, and the conditions of the blacks becoming worse and worse each year, the Home Secretary, Sir Horace Tozer, in 1896 instructed Mr. A. Meston, well-known in connection with the aboriginals, to furnish a special report upon the working of the Mission Stations and the various other centres where food was supplied to aboriginals, and to make an investigation into the cause of the troubles between natives and whites in the Cape York Peninsula. The journey for this purpose took four months, and the particulars of the journey and the recommendations are contained in an interesting report.! Owing to the complaints that were made by squatters and others, strongly reflecting upon the efficiency of the native police, the Commissioner of Police, Mr. W. E. Parry-Okeden, also pro ceeded to Cape York in October, 1896, after the return of Mr. A...

THE SOUTHERN QUEENSLAND ABORIGINALS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 May 1902

THE SOUTHERN QUEENSLAND ABORIGINALS. R. A. Meston, when examined by the Legislative Council anent the Aboriginals* Protection and Sale of Opium Bill in October last, gave the following opinions:-When the 1897 Act came into force' it dealt chiefly with reserves and removal from reserves of those aboriginals whose conditions make it -desirable for their own sake that they should be taken some where. where they would receive proper care and attention. More particularly in the beginning we dealt with aboriginals and half-castes more or less living in improper surroundings in camps, and under degrading conditions. Those were removed and brought down to the coast, some to the reserves, and the girls were put under the charge of a matron in Brisbane who was under the control of the protectress. These girls were sent out to suitable mistresses. I think between sixty and seventy have been sent out up to the present time, and all, with the exception of two or three, have given satisfaction.

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

ALLAN & 8TAEE. Winter fashions, both in material, colours, and styles, may now be said to be established, and Messrs. Allan and Stark's warehouse is abundantly stocked with the ebosen all. Evening gowns are absorbing ohief attention in the dressmaking departments this month in view of the forthcoming fashionable bails. Shimmering textures such as crepe de chine, gauze, embossed silks, mousseline de soie and sparkling tulle continue to be more popular than brocades and satins. For debutantes* frocks soft Japanese silks and mousseline de soie is being extensively used. I was privileged during my visit to the busy work room to view a number of the debut oostumes which this firm were prepar ing, and although it is very difficult, to draw distinction among so many picturesque and poetic styles, my eye was particularly at attracted to a simple, graceful and girlish frook of soft white Japanese silk whioh was entirely tuoked diagonally. The skirt was a tunic showing three accordion...

MESSRS. LAWSON & JOHNSON. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 May 1902

MESSRS. LAWSON & JOHNSON. Ping-Pong enthusiasts will read with delight the news that a unique devise for picking up the balls, known as the " pong-picker," has dis pelled the hitherto existing drawback to table tennis, of olamonring under chairs and tables to rescue the ball daring the game. This novel invention was espied, daring my visit round the shops, in the up-to-date house of Messrs. Lawson and Johnson, together with an extensive stock of croquet and ping pong sets, with extra bats and balls. Another idea which interested me were the celluloids oollars and cuffs, which never go limp and which need no washing beyond the rubbing on of a little soap to restore them to their natural snowy color and glossiness. This firm has all the most fashionable shapes, both for men and women. The show oases disclose pretty hair ornaments, in pearl and gold gauze, hair combs, hair frames, silver-topped powder" boxes and salt bottles, silver-mounted hand and bag purses, toilet soaps, an...

A LEARNED HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 May 1902

A LEARNED HORSE* In the year 1840, a man named King made something of a sensation with a "learned horse," whioh, if the ohroniolers do not exaggerate, was really a remarkably intelligent and teaohable beast. He would pick up a half-sovereign, half-drown, shilling, and six pence from a table in any order the spectator ohose to suggest Twenty cards bearing numbers from 1 to 20 being thrown on the table, the horse would pick out the appropriate figures when asked how many days there are in a week, weeks in a month, and days in a year; the last was the oleverest feat, as it required him to seleot the 8,6 and 5 cards and place them in the correct order. One feels a little sceptical concerning his next performance. A watch being held up to his eye, he produced the cards appropriate in reply to the questions, " What hour struok last?1' and " What hour will strike next ? " That takes some believing; but when the narrator asks us to believe that this horse could tell how many minutes it want...
