SHOULD THE RAILWAYS PROVIDE FREE STATION ACCOMMODATION? [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902
SHOULD THE RAILWAYS PROVIDE FREE STATION ACCOMMODATION? Railway travellers look upon railway stations, which, in most instances, are pro vided with numerous conveniences solely for -the greater comfort of the passengers, as some thing they pay for. Such is not the case; -the fare paid is solely for conveyance, thus v neither tramcars, omnibuses, nor cabs, pro vide the conveniences found at railway sta tions, and it is therefore evident that rail ways give the advantages of the stations to 'their patrons. The immense expense of such .conveniences is not taken into account by the passenger, but a look through the report of "the Railway Commissioner each year, and ?ihe costs of this system in railway construc tion, will open the eyes of many critics of our railways. This is the case-all over the world with railway construction; but why tramcars, poaches, cabs, etc., etc., should be free of such expense, and railways practically compelled to their construction and up-keep, it would be h...

THE LATE HON. WM. BROOKES. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902
THE LATE HON. WM. BROOKES. Across the early years of the history of Queensland are written in large characters the names of a dozen men* Pioneers they were, who built up the infant colony; and fortunately for us, there were among them men of the right stamp, who realised the hardships, the magnitude and the importance of the work be fore them, and looked to the doing of it rather than to its reward. One of the best of such men was the subject of this hook. In this volume we have presented to us a discerning informative, and admirably digested record of the man, the Hon. William Brookes, from the pen of the Rev. W. Osborne Lilley. The author has evidently spared himself no pains in compiling from private memoranda and public sources a vivid and illuminating account of Mr. Brookes' life, THE LATE HON. WILLIAM BROOKES. and bas brought to bis task many of the re quisites of success. The earlier chapters of the book are devoted to a rapid and thoroughly readable review of the ancestral i...
GREASE MARKS ON WALL PAPERS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902
GREASE MARKS ON WALL PAPERS. These can be removed by applying a paste of pipeclay and water to the stains, and allow ing this to dry on all one night or day. Then the powder should be gently brushed off with out scraping the paper. Violent noises and rough shaking or tossing are hurtful to a baby, and should be avoided as much as possible. To Take Ink out of Linen.-Melt some common tallow, put the stained part. of the linen in while the tallow is hot. Do not forget that it is essential to keep your sink clean, for half the diseases arise from having the sink dirty.
WOUNDS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902
WOUNDS. Cuts are the most common injuries in a household, and there should always be the means in readiness of meeting these misfor tunes. A supply of old linen and long band ages two inches in width, some soft sponges, a roll of sticking plaster, needles and thread, should always be at hand in case of an em ergency. When the cut bleeds very much the first thing tp be done is to check it. If the bloocT is from a vein, which can be easily ascer tained by the colour, which is dark and pur plish, tbe ordinary method of applying a cold water bandage, with pressure, will staunch it. Should the wound have clean edges these must be kept close together, and so kept by stitches, or by the means of the less effective sticking plaster. When this is done cover the wound with a piece of soft linen, moistened with cold water, then bind up with bandages, pressing upon the injured part. If the cut is ragged it will be useless to at tempt to unite the edges, and the best thing to be done is to apply...
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. GLYCERINE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. GLYCERINE. Equal parts of bay mm and glycerine applied to the face after shaving is most soothing. Applied to the shoes, glycerine is a great preservative of the leather, and effectually keeps out water and prevents wet feet. A few drops of glycerine put in the fruit jars the last thing before sealing them, helps to keep the preserves from moulding on the top. For flatuency there is no better: remedy than a teaspoonful of glycerine after each meal. It will prevent and cure chapped hands. It will allay the thirst of a fever patient, and -sooth an irritable cough by moistening the, dry ness of the throat. Washing the hair frequently is not a custom that should be adopted, although it must be done sufficiently often to keep the hair clean. People wno live in towns must ot necessity wash it often er than those who live in the country, because the greater amount of smoke and dirt renders it quite impossible to keep it as clean as it should be, even by brushing it well; n...
TO CLEAN STRAW HATS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902
TO CLEAN STRAW HATS. Dissolve a teaspoonful of oxalic acid- in a cupful of water. Use this to scrub your hat, using an old tooth brush. When done lay on the grass in the strong sunshine. When dry it will be as white as new. Since the acid is intensely poisonous, be very particular to throw it away after using, where it cannot possibly do any harm. If swallowed it is al most sure to prove fatal, as there is no known antidote for it. Don't keep it in the house cm any account. Buy it fresh each time and throw away what is not used.

CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902
CHILDREN. A suspicious parent makes an artful child. If there is one sight on earth which comr mands interest, respect and assistance from men it is that of a good mother, who under the providence of God, exerts her whole strength for the advantage and improvement of her children. Mothers cannot begin too soon to teach their children the importance of regularly cleansing their teeth. If it is done daily dur ing infancy, the child will take to it itself as coon as its little hand can hold the brush, and the habit thus begun will last for life. An infant should be given no food con taining starch until it cuts its teeth. Starchy foods include biscuits, cornflour, tapioca, sago, rice, potato, etc. An infant cannot digest any of these until its teeth are cut. Infants should never be put into a sitting posture until they are at least three months old, when they will probably sit up of their own accord. They should be carried flat in the arms, as if the little back is at all curved it may...
'DAILY MAIL" ENTERPRISE. HOME LIBRARIES FOR QUEENSLANDERS, [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902
'DAILY MAIL" ENTERPRISE. HOME LIBRARIES FOR QUEENSLANDERS, It' would be difficult to overestimate the value of the service the Doily Mail is doing in the interests of general education in this state by placing within reach of even the humbler homes, that greatest of all reference libraries, the " Encyclopaedia Britannica." One of the leading educators of our times has said" In this age of specialists, when each separate branch of human knowledge is traced to the farthest limits that a lifetime of study and investigation can penetrate, true education has come to mean, not the storing of one's mind with facts and theories, but rather the training &lt;?f one's mind to a proper use of the * tools' of information. The truly educated man is therefore one who knows where to find the answer to every question that may arise in his daily reading, or in the pursuit of his own business or profession/* . If true education consists " not in the storing of one's mind with facts and theorie...
TO A WATCH-HAND. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902
TO A WATCH-HAND. Like a leaf by brezzes set a-tremble, like a wave reflecting sparks of fore Little needle, your quick throbs resemble Those that hope and fear in me inspire. Light and fleet as lissom Atalanta, You, swift runner, hold the winniiq; race, Since you never pause nor go askant a Moment, for the golden apple's grace. Yet I rather, seeing every second Marked so gaily on your courier-track* P ee? myself by you drawn on and beckoned Towards the goal of love, and turn not back. I will follow your elastic sprinting; Lilt away! Wherever you may lead, There the world a disk of gold seems glint* Over which we course with airy speed. So, my watch-hand, circling round the dial, When the moment and the maid you meet. Tell her I am near, nor can denial Keep me longer from her presence sweet. Tell her for me, little intercedes Never can my heart range far away; Back it comes to her, with you for leader, True to her each minute of the day. -GEORGE PABSONS LATHBOP.
A SIGN OF SPRING. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902
A SIGN OF SPRING. The frozen brooks refuse to flow; The air is filled with flying snow, In sudden showers: Yet something tells me Spring is near, Sweet Spring, who brings the waiting year Its birds and flowers. 'Tis not that I have faintly heard An echo from some singing bird, Adown the gale; Nor in the leafless woods have found, Half hidden in the icy ground, One blossom pale : No, something fairer proves the birth Of sunny days, a sign that's worth A Herriek's sonnet. Tis Delia with a charming frown, In doubt just how to trim the crown rOf her Spring bonnet. -DUDLEY C. HASBBOUGK.
BEAUTIFUL SPRING. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902
BEAUTIFUL SPRING. " A tender veil of green axioms the .willows; The grass is springing up in sunny places; The ice no longer holds in chains the billows ; The violets soon will show their modest faces. Oh Spring, fair Spring, we hasten forth to greet thee, Our frost-bound hearts throb with fresh joy to meet thee."' Thus wrote the Poet, and he read it over Being quite young-with modest approbar tion, Gazing across a field of (last year's) clover, And exercising his imagination. And being caught by several April showers, He only murmured something of " May flowers." But the next morning, with a north wind blow ing. And leaden skies above, he changed his ditty. " No!" growled he, " I will not look how it's snowing! Pull down the blind, if you've a spark of pity. Stir up the fire, and make it kindle faster; And will you mix me that red-pepper plaster? " If anything could start my circulation, 'Twould be that Pilgrim Fathers' business, surely. Tb think they undertook to found a nation, A...
POETRY. ON A HYMN BOOK. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902
ON A HYMN BOOK. Old hymn book, sure I thought I'd lost you In the days now long gone by; I'd forgotten where I tossed you; Gracious ! how I sigh. In the church a thin partition Stood between her pew and mine; And her pious, sweet contrition Struck me as divine. ITes, remarkably entrancing Was she in her sable furs; And my eyes were always glancing Up, old book, to hers. Bless you, very well she knew it, And I'm sure she liked it too; Once she whispered, " Please don't do it/' But her eyes said, "Do." How to speak-to tell my passion? How to make her think me true? JLove soon found a curious fashion, For he spoke through you. How I used to search your pages For the words I wished to say; And received my labour's wages Every Sabbath day. Ah, how sweet it was to hand her You, with lines I'd marked when found! And how well I'd understand her When she blushed and frowned. And one day, old book, you wriggled From my hand and, rattling, fell Upon the floor; and she-she giggled, Did Miss Isa...
