DUST OR SOIL MULCH. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 July 1900

DUST OR SOIL MULCH. The object of mulching is to keep the soil cool and moist, the ground free from weeds, and the roots from frost in winter, where hard frosts prevail. Charcoal dust is a capital mulch, but it is too expensive on any con siderable scale. Many garden fruits and vege tables may be mulched with great advantage, strawberry beds amongst the rest. One of the effects of mulching is to prevent evaporation of the soil moisture; not by shutting in the moisture, but by preventing its escape. If the soil in a garden or field is allowed to bake on the top, forming a hard crust, the evapora tion of water will be rapid as it continues the process of capillary attraction which carries the moisture in the soil up to the surface to be dispersed into the atmosphere. If the surface, however, be well stirred and pulveris ed, it acts like a mulch, and the moisture can not rise through it, but is kept in the soil. The dust mulch in a garden should be stirred pretty often, and it is easy ...

FRUIT GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 July 1900

FRUIT GARDEN. if the pruning has not been attended to the sooner this work is done the better, also1 the planting of fruit trees, as it is not good to plant too late in the season. The plants will soon be making rootlets, which are sure to be broken off by late planting. This is a good time to graft oranges, pears, apples, peaches, nectarines, persimmons, apricots, custard apples, etc. Clear all vacant ground. Keep the weeds down. Push on with trenching, draining, and all the heaviest work while the weather is cold.

Make successive sowings once a fort night to ensure success, and when the early plants appear place twigs over them with a little straw to protect them from cold at the beginning; this only applies to readers on the coast. On the Downs a month later will be about the right time, to start spring sowings.

BUSHHOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 July 1900

BUSHHOUSE. Continue to keep the plants uniformly watered as last month. Cinerarias and Primu las should be in the brightest corners of the bushhouse, well sheltered from West winds, and raised on benches or platform, failing this stand the plants on inverted pots. If altera tions are to be done to the rockeries or new rockeries made this is the best month; ferns or any plants becoming too large in the rockeries should be forked out or trimmed back to the square or corner allotted to them. A little fresh soil with some fertilizer will be beneficial. In forking be careful of the roots of Begonias. Feed liberally with well-rotted stable manure. Clear away all decayed leaves. The end of the month will be soon enough to start repotting. Do not repot Adiantum ferns until they make a fresh start into growth; Achimenes, Gloxinias, and Tydeas may be re potted and allowed to start slowly. Do' not touch the Caladiums. Look over all tubers, as they are liable to root at this season. Now is the ...

Field, Orchard and Garden. GARDEN WORK FOR AUGUST. FLOWER GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 July 1900

Field, Orebari and Garden. / ? - ' ' *i&. GARDEN WORK FOR AUGUST. (BY JAS. MITCHELL, Bowen Park.) FLOWER GARDEN. Very little is to be done beyond keeping the weeds in check, and preventing the soil from hardening or caking on the surface round the tender winter annuals. A liberal supply of liquid manure may be applied to Fuchsias, Cinerarias, Pansies, Ranunculus, Sweet Peas, Hollyhocks, etc. All winter flowering plants, especialy annuals, will be greatly benefited, and their flowering season prolonged by the addition of some fertilizer during this month. If it is too much to pre pare the liquid manure, fork in a little bone dust phosphates, guano, or blood manure. Newly planted roses should have a fair supply of moisture, but on no account soak the soil like a puddle; roses thus treated in winter generally die off in summer. If any planting or transplanting has to be done the sooner this work is finished the better as the season is getting too advanced. The more tropical pla...

From Ipswich to Ask. "Away to the North they sped, where each one dwelt in plenty."—Hermes. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 July 1900

Brisbane Street, Ipswich. from |pgmie^ t© Away to the North they sped, where each one dwelt in plenty."-Hermes. SOME forty odd miles to the North of Ipswich lies the township of Esk, a railway connecting the two places. This branch railway leaves the main line at Brisbane Valley Junction, running throughout parallel with the Brisbane River ilirough the heart of the fertile Brisbane River Valley. The first agricultural settlement on the line is at Pine Mountain some six miles from Ipswich. Here dairy farming is largely carried out on the downs sweeping away to the west of the mountains. Substantial farm houses may be seen dotted all over the land scape, and the number of cream cans to be seen daily on the platform speaks of the strides made here in the cream industry. Numbers of the farmers at Pine Mountain have their own cream separators, and several of the oldest established milk as many as sixty cows per day. Nearly all the cream is trained to the Ipswich Butter Factory, though so...

Notes of the Month. The Hew Commonwealth. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 July 1900

H** flotes § Jlontb. rV;QllXXlXIIX WTTTTf t t * t VI The Hew Commonwealth. ;UHUHHHH? With the new century Australia enters upon a lite, the future of which is full m sucli dasuiges as will demand a guiding hand from the noblest and most intellectual of men. Each colony in the past has acknowledged that, in its Parliaments, men with these attributes were scarce, and, we consider that much of the opposition that the Commonwealth. Bill met with in the campaign now past, was due to the knowledge that good men, who will take up the burden of State are few, and that the younger men, except in the legal profession and from the ranks of labour, have a feeling of repulsion to entering an arena where so much adverse criticism, deserved or not, is so severely meted out; and when nobility of . action, self-sacrifice, and an unflinching re gard for duty, are treated with insulting scorn and disbelief. Yet it is these high-souled men who are required for the new State Parlia ment. Particularly ar...

Oxley, in the whale boat of His Majesty's, King Wil liam IV's, cutter, the " Mermaid/7 explored the Brisbane River, and, 1 casting anchor in one of its chief tributaries, the Bremer, camped upon its banks at a spot still marked by local tradition. These years have been momentous in the history of the colony of Queensland, and to no section more than to that adjacent to the old camp of Oxley, and the country lying westward to the Main Range. Three years after Oxley's visit, Capt. Logan, then the Commandant of Moreton Bay, re quiring lime for building purposes at the settlement, erected a kiln on what is now IPSWICH. called Limestone...

PARLIAMENTARY NOTES. One Adult One Vote. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 July 1900

PARLIAMENTARY NOTES. One Adult One Vote. At the meeting of Par liament on the 17 th inst one of the first of the measures forecasted in the Governor's Speech, was a Bill to consolidate and Amtend the Law Relating to Parliamentary Elections. It is sincerely to be hoped that this measure will include the one adult one vote clause. Though it has been often contended that women are not capable of the same keen ness and concentration of thought on matters political as men are, we consider that in many instances the value of their voting power will be distinctly felt for the benefit of the com munity, An intelligent use of their votes by women can do much to conduce to the moral and material advancement of the colony as a whole. That the gentler sex will use their votes as consistently for the welfare of the colony as men, no one will doubt, who has had any experience of elections, for too many instances have been shown where men, be they with votes in several electorates or with but one ...

PASTORAL STOCK AND STATION PRODUCE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 July 1900

STOCK AND STATION PRODUCE. The month's transactions in this market show a continued firmness, and in some lines a decided increase in prices has been shown. This state of affairs is likely to continue for an indefinite period. The shortage of stock and the massing of European troops in China will undoubtedly have a firming influence upon the prices abroad, and we would advise our country clients to hold wherever possible for a rising market The surplusage at South African ports of food stuffs will not last any -length of time, and so but little depressing influence will be felt from that quarter. All lines throughout have sold well, and the coastal stock owners are undoubtedly to be congratulated upon their position. We regret that the Western men will share but little in the advance in prices. Bullocks, prime, ^5 15s. to £7 12s. 6d.; extra, to £8; light and medium, from £4 to £$?

LOCATING A HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 July 1900

LOCATING A HOME. In travelling through the country one is often struck with the apparent want of wisdom shown in the selection of their home and in dustry by many people. A nice picturesque spot for a house is all very well if all other requisites are in possession ; but a nice spot for a house, and a nice view of lake and trees, WIUA an area of sandy and gravelly soil to cul tivate for a crop, don't give much promise of success, if the owner expects to support him self and family therefrom. And even when the land is fair or good a few mistakes in management make all the difference that exists between utter failure and moderate suc cess. Better for the man who intends to swarm out with his little flock, to travel a little further and wait a little longer, in order to secure a spot that will yield him fair return for his money and labour, than hastily, to be enchanted by some glowing advertisement and locate himself on some barren and unfruitful soil, there to lose his little all, re...

SOME INSECT PESTS AND REMEDIES. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 July 1900

SOME INSECT PESTS AND REMEDIES. The little green fly will succumb to sticky fly paper, or cobalt (the powdered) mixed in water, and sugar added, placed in dishes among the plants, as well as their namesake the house fly. The little black jumping beetle, that infests running vines, give up the ghost after a couple of applications of Paris green; The worms in the soil readily yield to lime water if its use is continued any length of time, and it acts as a fertilizer as well. The aphis, or plant louse, and scale can be annihilated by the continued use of hot water mixed with soap and kerosene. Sprinkle the pansies with weak Paris green or sift ashes over beds to kill off all insect enemies. Build bird houses and encourage the feath ered songsters to build their nests near you, and you will not be obliged to use the poison. If there is no stream near, set a dish of water out several times a day and the birds will re ward you with clean flowers as well as free concerts,--Dudley Born in "...

PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 July 1900

SOME NOTES.--The principal itejit in winter ing pigs economically is reasonably warm, dry quarters. Wth pigs, as with nearly or quite all other stock on the farm, it is very essential that a steady, thrifty growth be maintained, and this cannot be done with young pigs un less the quarters are warm. No matter how well fed the pigs maybe, if they are exposed to cold and storms they will not grow as they should, and, in the majority of causes, the reason that fall pigs are not profitable is because sufficient care is not taken to provide comfortable quarters. Whenever corn alone is depended upon to maintain animal heat during the winter, there will be but little growth, and the cost will be more than the gain in wealth. It costs but little to arrange a good shelter. The average farmer cannot kind-upon the ground. A good feeding floor should always be provided, and it will cost but little to have a roof over this, and then board the sides up; fill in with soil six inches high to make su...
