THE PHYSICIAN'S WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1902

THE PHYSICIAN'S WIFE. " I wonder if I shall please Will ? " The question came from the lips of a young woman in a white ball dress, but her happy smile showed that she was sure of the answer* She was standing before a mirror fastening her jewellery where it would have the best effect. Her maid was kneeling on the floor, pulling at the folds of the gown and smoothing out wrinkles. "Where can he be staying?" murmured the young woman. The door bell rang. The maid rose, but her mistress checked her. " I suppose it is my husband, Emma. Stay here; I'll open the door and surprise him." She tip-toed out and opened the door. " Well, Will " She stopped suddenly. The man before her was not her husband. He was dressed like a poor day labourer. " What do you want ? " she asked. The mail did not answer at once. The dazzling figure in the doorway confused him. At last he managed to say: ' Good evening! Is the doctor in?" {i No; " answered the doctor's wife, curtly. She did not care to have her hus...

WATER SUPPLY. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1902

WATER SUPPLY. Originally supplied from a large waterhole, one of a string that years ago were situated between the present Roma and George streets, and also from a smaller and less clear pond near the present Normal School; the city growing in population, demanded a purer and larger supply, and a Board of Waterworks was appointed, and by the damming up of Ithaca Creek at a point some ten miles from the city a large sheet of water was formed, known as the Enoggera Reservoir. Though a pleasure resort with considerable attraction, its fluid constituents were too many and varied to commend itself to the inhabitants, and the supply being too limited for the city's need further reservoirs were formed. These are now known as the Gold Creek and Mount Crosby Pumping Station. The latter works are situated upon the Upper Brisbane River, and having a pumping capacity of over 9,000,000 gallons daily, with a reservoir capable of holding 1,000,000 gallons. From these works, which are 450 feet abov...

Bronchitis. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1902

Bronchitis. This is denoted by tbe frequent coughing of ^he fowl, as distinguished from a Gold in the head only, which last appears in a discharge -from one or the other of the organs. The fowl should be removed to a dry and moderately warm place, and the water slightly acidulated with sulphuric and nitric acid, adding enough loaf sugar to make the whole slightly sweet, and acid to the taste. Under this simple treatment the fowl will usually improve rapidly. A little Cayenne or ginger seasoning may be added to the food with advantage. Mosquitoes cause Hie scabs; they scarcely ever kUl old fowls, bat woe betide whatever chickens you have hatched ainceOctober. Ton might dress the head with some fatty substance; almost anything free from salt will do. Kerosene is a severe remedy* but if the ohickens are not too weak it is the best, because it requires using less often than mere fat. Autumn is always a bad time of the year for poultry; it is at this time that disease is always rampant. ...

Poultry Yard. Chickens. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1902

Poultry Yard. Chickens BY J. REYNOLDS, MABOOOHIE. A fruitful cause of mortality among very joung chicks lies in permitting them to take too maoh exercise. We do not realise how ^weak and tender they are, and the mother hen, anxious for a variety of food after her long period of incubation, goes just so long as her little ones can follow her. The best plan is not to let them oat of the coop at all until the chicks are three or four days old, and for the next few days only for a run of several hours 4aily, after which I let them out in the morn ing as soon as the dew has dried, and reooop them again for an hour or two at midday. 'This is not so much trouble as one would sup pose, for the wise old hens soon learn to return to their ooop at noon, and wait there, hover ing their little ones until the attendant brings them their dinner. At four o'clock in the afternoon they are all housed for the night, and then given their last meal, a hearty supper. Always send chicks to bed with full c...
