Nanango Show [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 June 1902

Nanango Show Notwithstanding the dry season -one of the driest experienced in the Burnet district - and the early date of holding the show, the Nanan go Agricultural Society may he congratulated on the excellence and general success of their display. It was not expected that the agricul tural products would be of any great propor tions, but what were exhibited in this respect showed clearly what could be done under more favourable conditions, the quality in most cases making up for quantity. The exhibit from the Blackbutt district in this section was worthy of high praise, and was the main feature^gfe^he agricultural section. The maize and wheat exhibits were also excellent, the former especially so, whilst the miscellaneous vege tables shown did much to sustain the credit of the district, English and sweet potatoes and mammoth pumpkins holding pride of place in this respect. In the various horse sections a number of splendid animals were to be seen, this portion of the exhibition b...

The Yolk in Wool. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 June 1902

The Yolk in Wool. . We do not. think it possible, but if ever it cpmes to pass that we get sheep growing fleeces without yolk, then we shall have a practically useless wool, if, indeed, we have any wool at all. Yolk is that oily substance which exudes from the glands of the skin and so covers its entire surface that the skin to the eye will have a shining and glistening appearance wherever the wool is parted or opened on any part of the body. It also saturates the wool, so to speak, throughout its entire length, but in decreasing quantity as the body is receded from. It gives the wool a bright, lustrous appearance when present in sufficient quantities, and it is intimately as sociated with strength of fibre. When we shed the wool with the hands, this oily substance adheres to them, and this will follow to some extent, though we but grasp the wool on its outer surface. Yolk also nces very largely and favourably the handling qualities of wool as regards softness, pliancy, and elastici...

Ant Extermination. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 June 1902

Ant Sxtermioation. For the extirpation of ants the following remedieB are good. To be effective they require attention and perseverance. It is well to find their main barrow or nest if possible. Arsenic is sore destruction to them, bat it is dangerous to handle.' Air-slaked lime, plentifully dusted, in warm, dry weather over and aroand the hills, or in the house or other places infested will cause the ants to vacate them in a short time. Snuff. Dust A little snuff upon the floor of the rooms or pantry. Draw a thick chalk; line aroand a smooth tree or aoross an upright board or post and they will not pass over it. Gamphor. Pat a piece of camphor the size of a filbert nut into two quarts of hot water. When cold apply to pot and other plants and the inseots will be driven off without injury to the plants.

An Apropos Parody. "THE ARAB'S FAREWELL." [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 June 1902

An Apropos Parody. "THE AEAB'S FABBWBLL." Possibly there is a strong element of romance in the tale told by a Colchester journalist, to tiie effect: that when some newfy purchaet d " remounts " were passing through the town to the railway station a local trades man noticed among them an aged servant which he had recently Fold on account of its feeble condition. The journalist adds :The animal is well-known in Colobester, being 85 years old." This is rather " tall," even if you make tb& fullest allowance for War Office horse-buyers' incompetence, but the Me has ' ; moved, the tame poet of the London Star to ihi3 amusing parody of " The Arab's Fare well ": / - . « My spavined one, my spavined one, , that limpest weekly by, Wtyh thy glandered lungs and wheezy coug)), . . aod bleary roomy eye ; Fear not to roam the vefdt-side now; thy halting turn of speed Will serve to keep thee far behind-thou'rt safe, my ring-boned steed, .

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

Stock and Station. The prices of stock continue firm with a tendency to increase as the cold weather advances. The attendances at the various mar kets have been good'and the bidding invariably brisk. Wool shows an increase and fi' m market both in the colonies and in^ London. Oar Gable advices state fcbat all merino wools and medium to fine crossbreda closed at the highest prices of the series, but low orosBbreds realised barely the opening rates. The advance in fine wool appears to be sound and secure. It is anticipated that the supplies of wool for the remaining Series of the present year will be comparatively email, and probably 850,000 bales will be the total quantity avail able for the fourth and fifth aeries, opening on tbe 8:b July and 16fch September respectively. The total quantity catalogued during the series was 240,000 bales. . The quantity, Bold for tbe home market was 112,000 baled, for the Continent of Europe 107,000 bales, and lor fche JJuited States 3,000 bales. The...

BARB WIRE. To THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 June 1902

BARB WIRE. To THE EDITOR. We have found of late a tendency on the part of English firms to buy Iowa barb wire instead of the ordinary 4-birb Model No. 3 and 37, which we trace back to American in fluence to check German competition. As we have of late been able to compete in Australia against the Americans on ac count of the rise in their freights, and fact that at equal or even a little higi^r prices with ours, our barb is preferred by customers on account of its superiority in galvanising and general finish. The Ameri cans have evidently sought for other means to get another pull over us. This they ha v*e been trying by bringing the old Iowa and Do minion barb again on the Australasian mar ket, knowing that' the manufacture of these two models in Europe is abandoned almost altogether since 1884, and that only a few machines exist still on the Continent; whereas in the U.S.A. there are still a comparatively large number of^them, the Americans have used this in orcler to oust us out...
