FARMING IN SOUTH AFRICA. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1902
FARMING IN SOUTH AFRICA. Mr. A. B. Paterson writes as follows about farming on the veldt. The veldt here is parched and dry, and the karoo bushes, which are the only vegetation worth speaking of, are dusty and grey like our spinifex country There is no fuel, but a kind of green broom grown on the kopjes and burns .well even while green. For all farm house work manure is burnt. It is dried into big square blocks and looks like paving stone at a distance. The farmers live by sheep, cattle and ostriches. The country carries a sheep to six acres, an ostrich to 12, and a horse to 20. At least those are the figures given to me by a farmer, but they are not veiy reliable.

HISTORICAL. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1902
HISTORICAL. THE first historical records we have of this district date from 1770, when Captain Cook sailed past and named Moreton Bay in honour of Earl Moreton. In 1799, Lieutenant Flin ders, being sent from Sydney to explore the north-eastern coast of Australia, entered Moreton Bay, and landed upon Bribie Island. He saw Pumice-stone Channel at the northern part of Moreton $ay, and believed it to be a river; he went ashore on the mainland, and ascended one of the famous Glasshouse Mountains, near the base of which the North Coast railway line now runs. Flinders, however, after spending fifteen days in the vicinity, failed to discover the Brisbane River, and continued his journey north ward. Three years later he again passed northward to the Gulf of Carpentaria. The next visitor was Lieutenant King, in 1817, who surveyed a portion of the Queensland coast. In 1823, Lieu tenant Oxley, in the course of a voyage undertaken with the object of discovering a site for a new penal settlement ...

BLACKALL RANGE RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1902
BLACKALL RANGE RAILWAY. The Minister for Railways, in reply to a deputation of gentlemen who recently waited upon him with a petition for the survey of another route for the proposed railway from Woodford towards the Blackall Range, stated that he could see no probability of any rail ways being constructed in addition to those which had been sanctioned; at any rate, not until conditions improved. He advised that the settlers, instead of waiting for a railway, should consider whether they could not get a practicable road to Landsborough. There was a general vote for roads; if it were found on enquiry that a part of that could be granted by the Railway Department to aid in making a road which would bring traffic to the rail- way, he would try to get a grant for them. At any rate, he would instruct the surveyor to take a flying run over the proposed route that he might report whether it would be ad visable to make a survey. Anakie sapphire field is turning out some good stones. There h...

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING THE HOUSEHOLD BUTTER CHURN. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING THE HOUSEHOLD BUTTER CHURN. Before using, thoroughly cleanse the churn with warm water, then fill with cold water, which pour away after rinsing the container by a few turns of the handle. Ini churning, either .weet or sour cream may be used, but cream should be preferred which has become slightly sour, as it has then reached the proper degree of maturity, and consequently yields the best results, both in respect to quality and taste. The cream is poured into the glass container, which ought not to be filled1 more than half full. Any quantity, however, less than half the capacity of the container can be churned, pro vided the lower part of the beater be covered.

MESSRS. ALLAN & STARK, IMPORTING DRAPERS, ETC., QUEEN STREET. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902
MESSRS. ALLAN & STARK, IMPORTING DRAPERS, ETC., QUEEN STREET, The fashionable hats this season are lavishly trimmed with flowers, laces, ribbons, but all the materials are made so beautifully light that the weight is reduced to a minimum. The shapes are numerous, picturesque and becoming-every face can be suited. The style of the hats are broader and more drooping at back and front, and many have ends of lace and ribbon en twined with flowers falling over at the back; this style is par ticularly pleasing for summer fetes. As trimming, green is a particular favorite this year, and is very smart when used on the popu lar burnt straw hat; flowers and foliage, green tulle, chiffon, tinted laces, chene ribbon associated with black velvet make most charming trimming. Some of the new models are as follows :-No. i-Stylish hat of white chiffon and lace. The brim is a drape of very pretty white lace, while the crown is covered with folds of chiffon, loops of black velvet and lace fall...
Where the Fire-Crackers Come From. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902
' Where the Fire-Crackers Come From. Most of the small fire-crackers, and practically all the big ones, that were formerly made in China are now made in this country. It is dangerous business making them, as well as shooting them off, a point patriotic children should bear in mind when celebrating the nation's birthday. As the most essential part is lots of noise, why doesn't someone invent a fire-cracker that will make a tremendous racket and yet not be a menance to life and property. More accidents and more fires are caused by celebrations than by any other one agency, so the statistics say. But then the celebrations, must be celebrated somehow, and the old folks are too busy doing other things to give it proper attentton.
Round the Shops. B. G. WILSON & CO., IMPORTING IRONMONGERS, QUEEN STREET, BRISBANE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902
Round the Shops. B. G. WILSON & CO., IMPORTING IRONMONGERS, QUEEN STREET, BRISBANE. With the approach of warmer weather, a arger demand may be expected for pure ^drinking water. In the household, the school,or the factory, one of the first essentials to cleanli ness and health is to see that the drinking water is pure. Especially is this applicable to this State, where, owing to the prolonged drought, all lands of matter con taining microbes of the most dangerous nature, have gathered in the spoutings, roofings and tanks of houses and dwellings. Recent developments at the Enoggera Reservoir also point to the fact that the water from that supply must be any thing but of a purifying nature, in fact, hardly fit to take a bath in. To meet this demand Messrs. B. G. Wilson and Co. have just opened up a line of those celebrated germ proof filters, known as the Berkefeld. These filters have passed exhaus tive tests in England by members of the British Medical Association. Dr. Andrew...
AN IMPORTANT MATTER. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902
AN IMPORTANT MATTER. Every year the earth that forms the floor of the poultry houses should be removed to the depth of three or four inches, and fresh, earth put in place of the old. This is very necessary to the health of the fowls, as the earth, after forming the floor of a house for a year, be comes filthy from droppings and germs that produce diseases. A neglected house is a sure breeder of cholera and other ailments to which poultry are heirs. When the fresh earth is put in, it is well, also, to make a thin lime wash, add half a pint of crude carbolic acid to every gallon of the wash, then apply with a spray pump, forcing the mixture into all the crevices of the building, roof and sides. This is an ex cellent purifier and germicide, as well as des troyer of lice and mites, upon- whose presence in the house iit is usually safe to rely.
ADDLED EGGS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902
ADDLED EGGS. The causes of eggs becoming addled when set for hatching are many. Often they are kept in warm premises prior to being set, and fre quently they are allowed to remain in the nests too long after they have been laid; some times the egg is not fertile through faults on the male bird's side, and often through the hen being too fat, etc. There are numerous causes to ascribe for infertile eggs. The best pre ventive measures are to keep the breeding stock in good healthy order, not too fat, but vigorous and lean. Collect eggs daily and store them in a cool cellar, or, better still, set them quite fresh. Let the stock cock bird be always in his first or second season.
