Poultry Yard ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902

Poultry Yard ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. HAMBURGHS.--I have four white Leghorn hens, which seem to do very well (as I had forty-five eggs last February), but I want a breed which, besides being good layers and non-sitters, are good table birds, from what I have read Hamburghs seem to meet all these requirements. I have a nice house, with run, but exposed. Would you advise me to. try Hamburghs ? If so, what kind ? If not, what other breed ? How can you tell a white Dorking from a white Leghorn ? Do white Leghorns ever sit ?-R. J. S. [*£* (i) This breed would not answer your requirements at all. They are good layers, but their eggs are small, and they are no good whatever for table. (2) The only breed which are non-sitters and good table fowls are Houdans. It would pay you better to have Houdan-buff Orpingtons or pure Plymouth Rocks or buff Orpingtons, these, although not non-fitters, are good layers and very fine table birds, and lay brown eggs. (3) White Dorkings have white legs, fiv...

Notes of the Month. NECESSARY ECONOMY AND THE MEANS TO AFFECT IT. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902

Notes of the Month. NECESSARY ECONOMY AND THE MEANS TO AFFECT IT. It is an invidious and unpleasant position for any Government to be placed in when the exigencies of the public finances renders it absolutely necessary to provide both for an in crease in revenue and a reduction cf expenditure, but that is exactly the situation of our State Government at present, and it is by this time thoroughly realised by the public. The tax payers are very patiently bearing the extra burdens already, and about to be imposed upon them and the objections of the Labour Opposition to every fresh proposal of the Government, are regarded in their true light as simply Hansard-recorded sentiments, to tickle the ears of their constituents. Nobody likes to be retrenched, and nobody wants his income taxed-if he has one-but all the same Labour members recognise the necessity of raising revenue, and though they may cavil at details, as a party they admit the necessity for as well as the justice of the general...

Field, Orchard & Garden. FOR SEPTEMBER. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902

Field, Orchard & Garden. FOR SEPTEMBER. (By Mr. Tas. Mitchell, Bowen Park.) Flower Garden .-Now is the time to re pair. level, and fill up holes in the lawn ; the sun is working round, and if we get rain its influence will soon be felt amongst all plants and vegetable life which glory in its full summer rays. This is a good month to lay turf, plant grasses, or sow couch grass seed. Sow the seed on a roughly raked lawn ; after planting pass the roller over; failing this make it level with the back of a clean spade. Keep the soil moist by watering if the weather keeps dry. See that the little black ants do not carry away all the seeds; this latter is often the cause of failure, and the seedsmen are often blamed for the ants' de predations. If the ants are found carrying away the seeds, have the seeds slightly covered with soil or sand, the layer must be thin, if covered deep the grass will not come through. Keep the rose bed clean and fairly moist at this season, a handful of ...

WATERING POT PLANTS. (H. BORDON, Enderby.) [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902

WATERING POT PLANTS. BORDON, Enderby.) \ ' * ' During the winter and early spring months careful watering constitutes a very important part of plant culture, for on its proper perform ance depends to a great extent or otherwise success or failure in their cultivation. The chief points, in the first place, is to see that they are properly drained, and afterwards great care must be taken not to sour or sodden the soil by repeated waterings that are not re quired ; nor should they ever be allowed to be come thoroughly dry, especially when in active growth. As the days increase in length in spring plants that are full of roots and com mencing active growth require a liberal supply of water, and if allowed to suffer in the least for want of it often receive a severe check. Recently-potted plants need very careful watering till they become re-established ; and if the soil is moderately moist at potting-time, as it sheuld be, no water will be required' for several days till it is seen that...

INDUSTRIAL LIFE ASSURANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902

INDUSTRIAL LIFE ASSURANCE. The address on Industrial Life Assurance, by Mr. John Fairell, Statistician to the Citizens' Life Assurance Company, Limited, delivered on the 24th ulto., before the Institute of Accountants, Brisbane, is full of interesting information, and the story of this class of assurance from humble beginnings, to a register of 32,613,596 policy-holders, with the immense amount of assurances in force, ^5 28,760,068 throughout Great Britain, America, and Australia, fully warrants the concluding remark that, "A nation, whose base is strengthened every year in habits of thrift and' foresight-the more comely order ing of life-can confidently face the future, and whatever the future holds, industrial assurance will continue its triumphant march." When it is considered that the ordinary Life Assur ance policy is fixed at a minimum of ^100, it is marvellous to think there are nearly three million persons holding policies, averaging little over £20 each, aijd that the premi...

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

Stock and Station As we predicted iii our last report the rates for beef and mutton have ~ advanced still further, and may now be said to have reached famine prices; beef and mutton being quoted at gd per lb retail. The market rates for stock have ruled very high, notwithstanding the fact that those marketed were-especially sheep-of a very inferior kind. . . In regard to the wool markets there is nothing fresh to report, although the subject ' for the future is seriously engaging the atten tion of wool buyers at home. The qqestion , of consumption in the future is an open one, and while machinery at present is fully rnn there are strong doubts as to how long the demand will continue. With a continuation of the present scale of consumption, there , need be no fear, but in the absence of new ; business, things can . take a drop quickly in a ; months time. The emaciated condition in which clips are coming to market bears strong evidence to those at home of the terrible drought this Sta...

POTTING PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902

POTTING PLANTS. (By G. MELROSE, Boonah.) . Many make the mistake of overpotting rosesr giving them a great quantity of fresh compost over that which had already been drawn from. By all means give 'fresh ^soil/ but remove what . you can of that - not permeated with young robts. There seems an idea that roses for forcing must have their roots established, and hoit be disturbed in any way. But if we take care that the main bulk of roots are not dis turbed, there is a;considerable help in giving fresh soil as far as possible. Who has not noticed how very quickly a rose plant makes new roots after laying in fresh soil? Then ~why- not act upon this hint in the case of pot roses? It is not necessary to remove all the soil, but much might be easily replaced with better compost without any great disturbance of the roots. It is also a good plan to take off as much of the top sbil as can be spared from those tfiat| are not to be re-potted, and replace with softie rich compost;-not so rich that...

Froduce Markets. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902

Froduce Markets. The famine prices charged for maize and similar lines accentuate the fact that there is no change in the condition of the country. Great interest is being taken in the specnla I tions now taking place in Argentine maize, : and from private cables we learn that there are something like 20,000 tons afloat for Bris bane and Sydiiey ports. If this information is correct, * th£ present values for local pro [ duce may not be long maintained, more especially should a slg-cJcejiijig of the demand in New South Wales lead to transhipment to this market. The local flour market is firm and unchanged. The latest advices from Sydney show that wheat is quoted at 5s.; ex-trucks in Sydney ; flour, £9 15s. to £10. The prices in Melbourne and Adelaide are somewhat lower. The following are jthe latest current prices: Chaff.-Lucerne, primgT> 14s. 6d. per cwt.; and good medium, 13s. 9a.; wheaten straw, prime, 6s. to 6s. 2d. Hay.-Green Oats, good medium, 2s. 6d. per cwt.

LEAF FUNCTION OF BULBOUS PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902

LEAF FUNCTION OF BULBOUS PLANTS. (Bv J. C. McL.) \-. ' / When the spring flowering bulbs have mainly^ finished their work as regards delighting our eyes with beautiful blooms, the question fre quently arises in the amateur mind as to what should be done, the foliage alone remaining, . and that very often in a somewhat woebegone condition. Priorto this, however, there is one thing which should be done if it be contem plated to use the bulbs for another season, and that is the prompt removal of the seed vessels so soon as the flowers have dropped their petals or are at all faded. At this time the pkint has two vital functions to fulfil, viz., the perfection and ripening of its seed and the formation of a new subterranean bulb stored with the material of next season's start in life. Except to the breeder the seed is useless, and h£nce it is well to relieve the plant of that part of its task, ai very exhaustive one, by picking off the seed capsules. The next thing to remember is that it...

She was watching the storm, wiitch had turned the late afternoon into night. I was sitting upon the floor, trying to rea lise that for the first time since my boy hood I was really ill. I had arrived upon: the steamer an hour before and had gone at once to my room. It was very hot, and my head, that had acihed in most peculiar fashfon all the af ternoon, began to perform strange antics and to cease to be the seat of anything that could properly be called intelligence. I hadn't even sense enough to call for help. I lay across the window sdl in the growing darkness, and a voice' seemed to be whispering in my ear: '^You're with ered by an early spring; you're dried up* and you need rain." «. The gloom deepened.
