Whitewash for Dairies [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 July 1902

Whitewash for Dairies A formula for a wash which can be applied to lime walls, and afterwards become water proof, so as to bear washing, is as follows: - Mix together powdered quartz, three parts; powdered clay, two parts; freshly slaked lime two parts, still warm. In this way a wash is made which forms a silicate if often wetted, and becomes after a time almost like stone. The four constituents, mixed together give the ground colour, to which any pigment that can be used with lime is added. It is applied quite thickly to the wall or other surface, let dry one day, and the next day frequently saturate with water, which makes it water proof. This wash can be cleansed with water without losing any of its colour; ori the con trary, each time it gets harder. The wash can be used for ordinary purposes as weU as for the finest painting, and so-called fresco sur face can be prepared with it in the dry state. For a useful lime wash for wood and stone, the following preparation is submitted:...

The Angora Goat. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 July 1902

The Angora Goat. Not til! within the past four years did the* public generally begin to know the great value of the Angora goat, not only in converting the waste products of the farm into money, bat in saving the labour, time and expense of the farmer in destroying the weeds and brash on his farm. I will confine myself to the Angora goat as we now find it in this country, and to its adaptability and usefulness to the farmer in general. I will draw a comparison between the Angora goat and the sheep, as an illustra tion, because they are very similar in their appearance, nature and habits. The manner of oaring for them is so much alike that we can get a better idea of their value, as we are* all familiar with the ooBt and care of handling sheep, while the final end of both is, to be served on our tables as .. delicious spring lamb." The Angora goat grows to the same size as: sheep, but it does not mature so rapidly. A six moDths old lamb will weigh more than a kid of the same age with...

THE DAIRY. The Deterioration of Dairy Cattle [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 July 1902

* THE DAIRY. * The Deterioration of Dairy Cattle " There has been as much deterioration in the breeds of dairy cattle during the past 20 years, as among horses, and this is due to the fact that farmers and dairymen have neglected the first principles of breeding, and paid no attention to the quality of the sires used in the herds. In sliort, mongrels have been too much in evidence in nearly all the districts, and the result has been mongrel progeny, which were neither fit for reproduction, for milking, or for the butcher. Twenty years ago cows that gave 15 or 16 quarts of milk per day were fre quently seen on the dairy farms, and they could be brought at from j£6 to £9, the latter being looked upon as a good price. Now, cows not half as good are eagerly bought at £l° to ^13, and the present prices, which are about 10 per cent, of a jump on the prices of a week ago, combined with the inquiries in hand for good milkers, clearly denote that a scarcity of supplies exists. This means pos...

CARRIAGE OF STARVING SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 July 1902

CARRIAGE OF STARVING SHEEP. The immediate effect of the drought on the Railway Department at present is to bring about a period of great activity, and the de partment has been greatly taxed to provide accommodation for sheep, which, on account of the scarcity of feed, are being removed prin cipally from the Darling Downs to the North Coast district, between Bundaberg and Glad stone. This pressure on the resources of the department has been so great as to necessitate the running of the sheep trains cm Sundays. By the time the sheep at present booked have been dealt with, 150,000 head will have been removed to the relief country. It is significant of the condition of affairs when sheep in such numbers have had to be removed from Darling Downs. The department is also conveying a large number of sheep to the coast in the Central district. The massive winding machinery recently manufactured by Walkers Limited for the Wallaroo and Moonta mine, South Australia, comprising some 80 tons weig...

Some Remarkable Teams. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 July 1902

Some Remarkable Teams. The taming of wild animals, as everyone* knows, is a long existent art, for Hannibal, the Carthaginian general, is said to have driven a pair of lions in a chariot, so there were lion tamers before the days of Wombwell and " Billy Strand, the Gingerbread King." Those of the present generation, however, who are no more than middle-aged, will remember to have read in their youth that the zebra could not be tamed. Rarey, the American horse tamer, who tackled Lord Dorchester's horse Cruiser, broke a zebra to harness, and claimed to have been the first to have done so. Assheton Smith, when he visited Tattersall's, used to take great delight in- watching the American drive his zebra round the yard. Later " Delmonico,'? the lion tamer, attached to one of Wombwell's menageries, had two zebras to run in double harness, his being, he used to assert, the first pair ever seen. Now, however, zebras have been broken to run with horses in the Trans vaal, and a member of the ...

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

Stock and Station. The prices for stock still continue firm, the markets for prime qualities advancing slightly, although medium and inferior grades eased somewhat. Prime cattle have been scarce, best beef realising 27/6 per 1001b. Latest advices from London are to the effeot that Queensland wools are attracting the full attention of the whole trade, prices being at least Jd. better for greasy and Id. for scoured than hitherto, and it is anticipated that these advances will still be improved upon at the forthcoming sales on the 8th July and 16th September next. Taken ^altogether the outlook for the next series of sales is very promising from a pastoral standpoint, and as trade is good in the consuming centres, producers may look forward for a full maintenance of prices, or even an advance, providing the preEent heavy demand continues, which, as the winter manufacturing trade is commencing in Europe and North America, is likely to eventuate. | * The following are the latest current p...
