The Boonah Show. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 July 1902
The Boonah Show. By OUB SPECIAL REPRESENTATIVE. The annual show under the auspices of the Fassifern and Dagandan A. and P. Society was held this year at Boonah on the 19th and 20th ultimo, and proved in every way a marked success, both as regards the attendance and the high quality and standard of the exhibits. On Thursday, the opening day, the show was graced by the presence of His Excellency the Governor, Sir Herbert Ohermside, who arrived by special train accompanied by the Minister for Agriculture (the Hon D. H. Dalrymple) and a small party from Brisbane. At the request of the President (Mr. J. H. Fox), His Excellency in a short speech declared the show open, and congratulated the committee on their persistence in continuing to hold the show, notwithstanding the great disadvantages the district was suffering under. He hoped that when the drought broke the progress hitherto recorded would be continued, and that it would rival that great district on the other side of the Range, th...
BATES, THE INCOMPETENT. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 July 1902
BATES, THE INCOMPETENT. BY EDWARD C. CARPENTER. PAGE, the dapper little City Editor of the "Globe," had a great nose for news. &nbsp; He also had a temper. His fits of rage were usually the result of some offence to his journalistic nostrils. They were offended now. His face was as scarlet as the habitual red carnation in his button-hole. "Bates!" he called, in a tone that boded &nbsp; &nbsp; no good. A reporter dropped the paper he was read- ing, thrust a black pipe into the pocket of his shabby coat, and answered the summons. The editor looked the reporter over from head to toe, and from toe to head, carefully estimating him. Bates was tall, lean, cadaverous ; as angular of feature as he was of form. A great shock of unkempt black hair hung low over his fore- head, and gave him a look that was grim, wild, fantastic. The vagaries of nature, as though still unsatisfied, set in his homely head a pair of appealing blue eyes, that dif- fused a strange peace over...
PANCAKES. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 July 1902
PANCAKES. Four ounces of flour, half a pint of milk and an egg, will make a small dish. Put the flour in a basin, add the egg and milk very gradu- ally, stirring all the time to prevent lumps. Melt a piece of butter in a small frying-pan, and let it run over the whole surface; pour in enough batter to cover the pan thinly, and fry it a delicate brown; when one side is done, toss or turn it with a knife. Sprinkle with sugar and lemon-juice, roll up and keep very hot till all the pancakes are done, then serve at once.
MINING The South Eastern Portion of the Gympie Goldfield. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 July 1902
The South Eastern Portion of the Gympie Goldfield. THE developements that have taken place of recent years in the south eastern portion of the Gympie gold field, and which have induced a number of inves tors to become shareholders in the mines in that locality, have drawn attention to the mines that a sketch of the early history of the most important will be of considerable interest. One of the most important of these mines is the SOUTH GLANMIRE AND MONKLAND a claim, which, although holding a good place in the market for a long period, has had her position strengthened very considerably by the recent excellent developments in the eastern portion of the lease, which developments pro mise a long and prosperous life to the mine. The western portion of the ground was originally held by the 10 and 11 Monkland G.M. Co , who sank the shaft which is known to this day as the *' Raggedy," and West Monkland shaft, remnants of which can still be seen near the western shaft of the South Glanmire...
HOW THE BILLY GOAT GOT HIS CHIN WHISKERS. [FOR THE WEE-UNS.] [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1902
HOW THE BILLY GOAT GOT HIS CHIN WHISKERS. [FOR THE WEE-UNS.] "That! oh, that's Butterine, the Trick Goat, and if you can stay a few minutes I will gladly tell you how the Billy Goat got his chin whis kers. As you will see by looking at the pic ture, Billy Goats at that time had no hair whatever on their chins. They had instead a fine bristly pompadour and no horns. Well, one night the Trick Goat left the circus with Mr. Bear, Mr. Lion, Master Tiger, and a few others, to have a little walk and get away from the monotonous circus rings. As they walked through the streets everybody got out of their way, for no one cared to meet such a ferocious looking circus crowd. Of course they had their circus yell, which sounded through thit streets like a calliope, and ran something like this: Quack, Quack, Quack, Moo, Moo, Moo; We're from the circus, Goo, Goo, Goo. Bah, Bah, Bah; Women and men Fifty cents, Children ten. " When the Lion roared this peculiar slogan it was amusing to see everybody ...

HEADACHE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1902
HEADACHE. Headache takes its origin from a variety of causes, and no one remedy will meet ail the varying phases. In delicate women it is simply sympathetic, but the general cause of head ache is some derangement of the stomach or indigestion. A remedy in such cases is found in taking a glass of warm water, into which has been stirred rapidly a full teaspoonful of salt and kitchen mustard. This will cause vomiting, and will empty the stomach of the bile or un digested sour foo'd, and great relief will be felt; then rest for a few hours, sleep if pos sible, and a complete cure will be effected.

SOME "DONT'S" FOR HUSBANDS. Don't correct or snob your wife in the presence of strangers. Don't suppose that sfae is Indifferent as to whether you remember her birthday or your wedding day. Don't treat her as if yon had stooped in marrying her. Don't allude to your mother's talent for housekeeping with a sigh. Don't neglect to express your pleasure when she makes your favourite padding. Don't forget to notice and criticise kindly her new dresses and hats. Don't worry her to death because your paper knife or favourite stud has been mislaid. Don't forget to use occasionally some of those endearing epithets which were always on your lips before marriage.

PINS AND NEEDLES. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1902
PINS AND NEEDLES. This is a name applied to that peculiar numbness and pricking of the arm, foot, or leg, which is so often felt after being in a constrained position for a long time. It is caused by some interruption to the circulation, and is generally removed by rubbing or exer cise. If this does not cure it medical advice should be sought, as it may be the forerunner of some more serious attack.
GARDEN PATHS: GRAVEL, ASPHALT, AND CONCRETE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1902
GARDEN PATHS: GRAVEL, ASPHALT, AND CONCRETE. J. L., Rockhampton:-''Please give in structions on preparing a garden path about 18 inches wide."-For a gravel path of only 18 inches in width, it will be sufficient to ex cavate over the site of the path to a depth of about 9 inches below the intended finished level. Fill in 6 inches of this with broken bricks, good hard clinker, or broken stone, and ram this well so as to consolidate it as much as possible. On the top lay gravel and sand and roll with a garden roller. To make an asphalt path, excavate to a depth of 9 inches. Put in the edging or kerbs of the path, and fill in the foundation as recommend ed above. The asphalt is laid in two layers. The bottom laver, about 2 inches thick, is w ' r \ composed of broken bricks or limestone broken to about 1 inch gauge and mixed with melted tar and pitch. The broken stone is placed in a heap on a wooden platform, the tar is poured over the heap, and the whole mass turned over several times w...
NETTLE RASH. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1902
NETTLE RASH. " Nettle rash" is an acute affection appear ing quite suddenly. Raised patches, called weals, of various shapes appear all aver the body. The colour is generally white, and sometimes red at the base. At the same time the irritation is almost intolerable, and the stinging and burning of the affected part most annoying. Scratching and rubbing only aggravate the irritation. Great attention should be paid to the diet, and a bath of vine gar and water, or alcohol and water, is a great relief. Bran and starch baths are also useful in allaying the stinging and burning.
PAINT FOR IRONWORK. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1902
PAINT FOR IRONWORK. Linseed oil properly applied is an excellent application for ironwork exposed to the weather. The iron should be first well clean ed and freed from rust and dirt. The oil should be of the best quality and wqll boiled, without litharge or any drier being added. The iron should be painted over with this, but the oil must be laid on as bare as possible, and on this depends, in a great measure, the success of the operation. If the oil is put on too thick it will blister and peel off, and will scarcely ever dry. The iron should be given three coats of oil and only as much put on SOUTH AFRICA.-HITNTKRS RETURNING FROM THK INTERIOR. each time as can be made to cover it by hard brushing. If a dark colouring matter is desired, use burnt umber. It is a good hard drier, and mixes well with the oil without in juring it.

WENT A BIT SMOOTHER. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1902
WENT A BIT SMOOTHER. A farmer who had engaged the services of an Irishman sent him out one morning to harrow a plot of ground. He had not worked very long before nearly all the teeth came out of the harrow. Presently the farmer went into the field to note the man s progress, and asked how he liked the work. "Oh," he replied, " shure an it goes a bit smoother since the pegs have, come out!"
The Farm. Oranges. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1902
The Farm. Oranges. You may be able to judge of an insufficiency of potash in your orange grove by the appear ance and growth of the tree, and that is an excessive growth of weak, immature, angular wood, which does not harden up. The effect of nitrogenous farm manure is to cause tree growth at the expense of fruit. This is desirable while the trees are young, but, if continued, large fruit will result, bad in colour and very thick in rind and rag; and the evi dence of a sufficiency of nitrogen in the soil is the beauiiful dark green colour of the foliage; inclining to yellow is an indication of its supply failing. Situation has something to do with the suc cess of orange growing, and bad ones may be chosen, clay subsoils being bad, unless well drained. In Florida, the orange grove of the U.S.A., the situations are mostly on moist lands (they have an annual rainfall of 55 inohes), and probably this is an explanation of the wholesale destruction of the orange groves by occasional frost...
Notes of the Month. IRRIGATION, CANALS AND FLUMES FOR THE DROUGHT-STRICKEN WEST. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1902
Notes of the Month. i IRRIGATION, CANALS AND FLUMES FOR THE DROUGHT-STRICKEN WEST. It is to be regretted that no mention was made in the Governor's speech at the opening of Parliament of a determination of the Government to take in hand definate plans to prevent in some way the drought having full sway in this State. We believe in spite of the enormous difficulties to be over come that means could be found to store huge bodies of water in various parts of Queensland, and from these heads irrigate areas at present entirely destitute of feed, and for this end no unsurmountable difficulty would, we believe, be met with to obtain a large sum of money for the purpose. To borrow money for the purpose of build ing unprofitable railways through drought stricken territory is folly, but to borrow it, if needs be, to spend in the erection of works which increase its value tenfold is good busi ness and supplies a valuable asset as well as creating thousands of homes and a prosperous population....
