SAUTE POTATOES. Peel as many potatoes as are required and -parboil them in a saucepan containing plenty of cold salted water, then drain them and dry -them on a cloth and cut them into quarters. Put some suet or clarified dripping into a stew pan, and when it is boiling put in some of the -potatoes, but not too many at a time, and cook them over a clear fire until they are evenly browned and thoroughly done through. It is not necessary to use a large quantity of fat when potatoes are to be cooked in the above manner; they must be carefully watched and turned occasionally, so that they may not be burnt on one side and hardly coloured on the other. The potatoes should be drained on paper placed on a dish in the oven, and just "before they are sent to table a little coarse salt and chopped parsley should be sprinkled over them.

Association was held at Woombye,.on the yth ultimo, and was attended by a large concourse of people from the outlying districts, Which are noted for their exceptional agricul tural and dairying capabilities. There is, per haps, no other district in Southern Queens land which is so favoured in the matter of rain fall as the Moreton district, and it was not sur prising, therefore, to see the. great variety of., fruit, vegetables, agricultural products, and manufactures that were put forward.

A COURSE IN PAINTING. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1902
; A COURSE IN PAINTING. The lilacs below the classroom balcony grew so high that 1 ilein Elizabeth, by leaning over, managed pluck a spray of the blossom. Austerely dressed and delicately grave* she stood, for a space, against the invad ing flood of spring rapture, till suddenly it reached and overwhelmed her. She paled, and held out the clasped bands which held the lilac, as if offering it at some shrine, while her eyes burned with the mystic adoration of an early saint. Her pupils were chattering inside, watt g for the blossom, which was to serve . j* their drawing model, and when the din became too ioud to be ignored, Eliza beth switched her mood back into the line of her duties, and, returning to the table, brought the girls to order by some chill, repressive words, and set them to their task. Then she went het- round, Instructing silently, for the most part, with india rubber and pencil. "But that isn't there, Fraulein," ob jected one of the young drafts women, the laborious ve...

NURSERY NOTES. NURSERY HELPS AND REMINDERS [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1902
NURSERY NOTES. NURSERY HELPS AND REMINDERS -- .HI. For Rainy Days.-Little ioiks oiten find it hard work to amuse themselves indoors on a rainy day, and the old games lose their attractiveness. Here is a new game. Each one is provided with a fan, not too large, and a feather is fanned about, but must not be allowed to touch any object or to land on the floor. If there are enough players, they can be divided into two sides. Any one who fans the feather against an object or the wall must join the opposite side, and when the skirmish is over the winning side is the one having the least number of players. To Prevent Bed-Sores.-All parts on which there is any pressure should be washed night and morning with soft soap and tepid water, very carefully dried, and then dusted with zinc-powder. If the skin: looks at all red, rub a little methylated spirit gently in, using the palm of your hand. If the skin breaks even the tiniest bit, paint it with beaten white of egg or collodion. Any patient ...
Produce Markets. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1902
Produce Markets. The weather conditions have conduced to wards making the prices for produce much easier and now that rain has fallen over the Downs, and the New South Wales and Victorian agriculturists have received copious showers prices should come down below the famine prices that have been existant. Our Melbourne reports advise a great increase in butter production in Victoria and which has already had an easing effect to prices here, while Sydney advices show a continued hardening in wheat. London prices for butter have risen 2s. per cwt. The Niobe sailing vessel from Buenos Ayres, Argentine Republic, is now discharging 2,500 tons at Parbury's wharf, South Brisbane. The maize is small, but clean, and this shipment has relieved the market considerably. The steamer Whitgift, 4453 tons, now in Sydney, has also 2000 bags of United States maize on board for Brisbane. Leaving New York on the 13th of July, the Whitgift arrived at Sydney on the 22nd instant. Chaff.-Wheaten straw, 5/9 ...
DAINTY DINNER TABLES. HOW TO ARRANGE THEM. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1902
DAINTY DINNER TABLES. HOW TO ARRANGE THEM. At this season of the year &lt;says an Eng - lish paper) when flowers are plentiful, and consequently cheap, a dainty dinner table is within the reach of the most mo destly pursed woman at the cost of a few pence and a little time and trouble. For instance, a big bunch of blue flags may be had for as low as 6d or 8d; a bunch of yellow king-cups for 4d; while pop pies of every hue are obtainable for 3d per bunch and upwards. I could extend this l'Ft .practically indefinitely, but thn foregoing examples must suffice for the present. The chief consideration being how we can display our flowers to the best advantage when bought. Briefly, then, let me offer you a word of advice in this connection: Don't pack half-a-dozen various blooms together and then expect your table to be an artistic success, because by doing so you rob the flowers of their individuality, and consequently, to expect them to, so :o speak, apsgn themselves, is futile ...

HINTS FOR THE BICYCLE GIRL. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1902
I HINTS FOR THE BICYCLE GIRL.. Stiff Knees.-If your Jmees feel stiff af- . ter a long ride, rub a little olive oil well - into them at night aXter bathing, rubbing j well for quite ten minutes. This often gives great relief. Refreshment.-If you want to go for a long ride, and will have no chance of get ting refreshments on the way, take some; dates and raisins with you- These con-, tain so much nourishment that they are very sustaining, besides which they are «asy to digest. For a Windy Day.-If you are riding in a very strong wind, which blow# across the road, keep your front wheel very slightly turned towards the wind, more especially when you are meeting or pass ing anything. For Cuts.-Always carry a tiny pot of boracic ointment and some sticking plas ter in your saddle-bag. Accidents will happen sometimes, even to good riders, and it is just as well to be prepared. Oiling Pedals.-Don't put too much oil -to these; they only need the tiniest drop. If you put much, the oil is pretty...

WHAT LOVE CAN DO. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1902
WHAT LOVE CAN DO. What marvels love can work! Have you ever thought of the wonderful power, my girl-readers, that love can ex ert over others? I read lately such a beautiful instance of what even a little child's love can effect. Some visitors were one day going over the prison at New Bedford, U.S.A., mnd amongst them was a little girl, just able to speak. Unseen by her elder companions, she wandered along till stopped by what was (to her) a great block of stone. Near by was a convict breaking stones. So vioJent was this man at times that ehains were often put on him to control bis rage. The little one paused before the obstacle in her path, and looked with her innocent eyes up into his face. Down'dropped the heavy hammer, and the strong arms gently lifted her over the stone. As lie raised her the child stroked his rough face caressingly, and lisped, in baby-language, "Me lub 'ou." Only a baby sentence, but i4 worked a marvel, for the convict trembled as he put "the wee thing" down,...
FRUIT GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1902
FRUIT GARDEN. A large amount of work is necessary in the fruit garden during this month. See that the soil is well worked around each tree. Spray where necessary to keep down insects. Watch the fig trees, which are just shooting out new growth, and where grub appears pick them off and put into the fire. Trees of a tropical nature-custard apples, mangoes, etc., should be planted, well mulched, and watered until they get a good hold of the soil; do not neglect the strawberries, although they have given over fruiting for the season ; encourage the runners. To strengthen the plants for next year fill up a quantity of small flower pots of pieces of bamboo about 4 or 5 inches long, with some nice light soil; place them in the soil round the old plants, and peg a nice strong runner in each; water well, and in a few days they will be rooted in the pots. When the little plants are fairly strong and well rooted, cut the runners separating the young plants from the old. In a few more days all ...
NURSERY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1902
NURSERY NOTES. When choosing jour nurse be careful that she has no bodily defeit- as squinting or stammering. A child is the most imitative creature. The favorite position of young chfl-} Jpr%;iieeiris to be kneeling. They kneel. for tiieir games, and for all kinds of 'amusements; they are still in their, "sock" stage of existence, so how do the' little knees fare? From kneeling or ' kinds of surfaces the knees become rough and grimy. The use of the nail bru£h or pumice-stone is torture, and . yet washing in the ordinary way does ? not remedy them. It is a good plan to [ make a pad of two or three thicknesses of flannel about three inches square. But- ; tonhole-stltch the edges together, and and make a loop to hang the pad up by. A gentle rubbing with this night and morning, using soap and warm water, will keep the little knees soft and clean,; until the time comes for them to be cov-» ered with etockings. In scarlet fever thorough ventilation, is most important. The patient cannot ...
KITCHEN GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1902
KITCHEN GARDEN. Keep the ground well stirred around grow ing plants, applying plenty of water and liquid manure or fertiliser to prolong the winter vegetable season. Dig up every vacant part ready to plant on the first appear ance of rain. Sow sweet corn, lettuce, okra, pumpkins, cucumber and melons. If not already done plant cuttings of sweet potatoes. Keep melons, pumpkins, and cucumber plants well watered and mulched as they ap pear. This must not be forgotten, as if the young plants suffer from the want of water, the fruit will be ruined.
