BUSH HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1902

BUSH HOUSE. Gloxinias, Achimenes, and Caladiums will require a moreliberal supply of water, as they are making growth and filling the pots with roots. Gloxinias do not like being watered over the foliage; they make better plants when the foliage is kept dry. Shelter the plants from wind, water freely at the roots, aiid shade slightly. This is a good month to propagate all soft wooded plants; prepare a light, moist corner for the laying down of foliage, begonia leaves, etc. Make the soil light with a good persentage of sand and leaf mould ; leave 2 or 3 inches of the stalk on the leaf, and lay it flat on the soil; if the situation is suitable they will start to grow in a week's time. Keep the soil well stirred or forked around all plants. In the rockeries fill up all gaps, selecting the best of everything, dis carding useless varieties, which are apt to take full possession of the rockery. Re-pot all plants requiring a shift at once, as the season is now getting late for this work. C...

THE LAND OF CONTRASTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1902

THE LAND OF CONTRASTS. This Australia of ours is a queer place, the land of the weird and wonderful. One cycle sees it devas tated by fierce burning drought, which bakes it as brown as a brick field, and the next sees it partially washed away by manmoth floods, after which for aseason the whole land is fresh and" green as a wheat field. Such is the surprising vitality of the so 1, that even after a time such as we are enduring at present, in a month after the fall of the neces sary quantum of rain, a stranger would imagine that the land and drought were as far apart as the two poles. And this wonderful recuperating power of the country, which should be our most reliable asset, para doxical as it may appear, is the chief cause of the periodical depressions that sweep across the continent. It engenders a spirit of national laziness and the whole populace instead of trying to do something to help them selves, are apt to lean up against posts, and Macawber-like, wait for something to tu...

Field, Orchard & Garden. FOR OCTOBER. FLOWER GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1902

Field, Orchard & Garden FOR OCTOBER. (By Mr. Jas. Mitchell, Bowen Park.) FLOWER GARDEN. This should be a busy month in the flower garden, as flowers are in great demand dur ing summer a.nd autumn months* Chrysan themums should be seen to at once; have the ground thoroughly well prepared, and in dig ging put the manure well down ; see that the ground is well drained, and if blooms are wanted for show purposes, do not make the ground too rich in first preparing the soil. It is better to feed the plants after they have made their flowering buds. It is also advisable to get special variaties imported from time to time, as some of our very best varieties seem to deteriorate if we grow them in our own garden year after year. This has frequently been noticed with varieties such as William Tricker, Yellow Coronet, Charles Shea, Louis Boehmer, and many other good old varieties. To grow the chrysanthemum for ordinary pur poses such as making a show in the garden, or for cut flowers, d...

IMMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1902

IMMIGRATION. Doubtless one important factor in pro ducing the bad times, which are everywhere prevalent throughout the Commonwealth, is the almost entire stoppage which has come to immigration. Although the great tide of emigration still continues from Great Britain and Ireland, as well as from *he Continent, a mare driblet of it touches our shores. We notice by the report of the Statistical Department of the Board of Trade, just issued, that during the seven months ending July 31st, while 54,831 British emigrants went to the1 United States of America, 15,372 to the Dominion of Canada, and 19,272 to South Africa, only 1351 came to Australasia, which, of coarse, includes New Zealand. But while we are thus practically forgotten at home we are in still worse a p >sition on the Continent. The foreign emigration from British ports to the United States during the same period was 69,378 ; to the Dominion of Canada, 25,925; to South Africa, 2039-a somewhat suggestive fact; and to Austral...

THE LAWN HOSE. (Salomon cansidereth it for a short space of time and marvelleth at its ferocity.) [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1902

THE LAWN HOSE. (Salomon cansidereth it for a short space of time and marvelleth at its ferocity.) Consider now the lawn hose, for it reareth its head abroad in the lands. It roameth about, Seeking whatsoever it may soak; And none may escape. ; Behold, the lawn hose consisteth of a long round hole. Composed of air; And liie same, it is surrounded by rubber. And at one end thereof is a place whereby gieat volumes of water may enter, And at the other end thereof is a place where a womsui fair to see and hard to dodge may hold unto the hose. Yea, verily; when she tucketh her garments about her feet and putteth her sun bonnet upon her head that she may sprinkle the lawn. Then it is time for all them that are round about to flee unto the mountains of HepsidanL Or to hie unto the house and seek shelter; For she that handleth the lawn hose hath the uncertainty of the cyclone and the wide swath of the cloudburst. Peradventure, she endeavoureth to sprinkle the daffodils and the elephant's ear...

STREET PAVING. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1902

STREET PAVING. BY MR. R. FERGUSON. The subject of street-paving; by modern methods, with material that will present to the eye a true and sightly even sarface, easily kept clean, fairly noiseless under traffic, affording a constant foothold for horse*, and inert under all conditions of weather, impervious to moisture, and satis factory from a sanitary point of view, is a matter which has engaged the attention of local authorities in Great Britain and Imerica for the past fifty years. an<J is b iag dis cussed as an opeo question to-day. In 1895, 300 cities in th; United States were laying down vitrified brick paving in preference to all other material. Granite sets, w<>o<M)iockiu£ of Florida cedar and Hemlock pine, also sheet a*phalt, were being taken up and vitrified bricks substituted. The technical journals upon this subject stated that this material when manufactured from the proper indurated clays, generally found overlaying the coal meisures,...

FERN SPORE RAISING. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1902

FERN SPORE RAISING. On most ferns, if we examine the back of the fronds, we shall find the spores, or, rather, the spore-cases containing them, arranged in vari ous ways, according to the species. Each par ticular kind of arrangement, indeed, determines the genus and species, because, no matter how much the form of the fronds and general habits of the fern may vary, the particular type of fructification persists, and thus constitutes the nio.'t constant feature for the botanist's and fernist's guidance. Thus all the big poly podium family, no matter how diverse they may be outwardly, bear their spores in. round, iso lated clusters without a cover; all the spleen worts (asplenia) have them arranged in lines herring-bone fashion, with a thin skin-like cover attached to one side; all the pteris or bracken family have them arranged along the edges of the frond divisions, which edges are rolled inwards to form a cover of different type; and so, did space permit, we might go through score...

MR. OSWALD C. HEARNE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1902

MR. OSWALD C. HEARNE. Sometimes the aisles of a churcli sire crowded by congregations attracted by a great preacher's fame, travelled, cultured, and elo quent in a mighty theme, sometimes 'tis soul thrilling music that for a short season comes from the lips of a. famous songster, but seldom is it that for a legnthy period the seats are filled, and the aisles crowded by an audi ence that week after week come regularly to church. This is what for many seasons has been common in the Albert Street Wesleyan Church, Brisbane. The organ recitals on each Saturday night draw a crowded audience, while at the Sunday services, little room is teft in the building for a late comer. At these latter services, everything necessary to win attendance, the preaching eloquent, the sing ing of the best, and the organ accompani ments all that the heart of a lover of music could desire. The preacher is the Rev. C. E. James, one of the ablest of the many that Brisbane is favoured with. The singing is by one...

TVE ABAHMNEB MINE. "Bow, Tre been thinkin*." ' Jim Peters's three compaotoiiBi whs were lounging with him in front of a Utile log cabin up in- the Sierra Nevada mountains; sat suddenly erect; and, as «im<ng an air of the most oompleta astonishment, stared at him curiousli , for almost a full minute. " "Jim," one of them said, finally, "did you speak jest now, or was I sorter dreamin'?" "I reckon I spoke, Mr Cobb," Jim, Peters replied, carelessly. "What was that remark you. made Jim?" "Nothin', only I said I'd been thinkin'." Cobb looked at the other two men and nodded his head, when they all turned their eyes on Jim and* scrutinised him wonderingly. After a while old man Cobb said: "Jim, are you in earnest?" "Of course I am," Jim answered. "What makes you ask that?" "And you shore been thinkin' ?" "Certainly." There was a long pause, during which Jim Peters's companions looked at him incredulously, but at last Cobb spoke again. "Boys," he said. "It's strange what CUJ ious...

Notes of the Month. They are slaves who dare not speak For the fallen and1 the weak; They are slaves who dare not be In the right with two or three.-Lowell. THE AUSTRALIAN7 LABOUR MEMBER. WHAT QUEENSLAND IS DRIFTING TOWARD. The most important man in Australia to day is the labour member. His party holds the balance of power in both State and Federal Parliaments, while the future des tinies of the several States and of the entire Commonwealth are in its hands. It appoints Ministers, seats or unseats Governments at its pleasure, and exercises a power as drastic, tyrannous, and universal within the continent as was ever wielded by the emperors in ancient Home. The factors contributing to this curious condition of affairs are manifold and complex. The fact is that Australia is at heart the most democratic country in the universe, and no constituency will twice return a representa tive to Parliament who does not devote him self heart and soul to the task of improving the condition of the...

Summer Comforts. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 October 1902

Summer Comforts. When the first hot spell hovers over us, with; its vapoury breath, as though direct from a warmer place than .Queensland, there is no comfort quite so welcome as ice; even the clinkety clink in the pitcher, and the noisy gurgle as its contents flow Into the tumbler, make the mouth water with anticipation. These summer diays tempt us to gratify our appetites with all kinds of frozen foods, and more especially with all sorts of iced beverages, although we are fcold that ice and iced drinks and frozen eatables are not fit provender for the self-respecting stomach, and that warm drinks and hot food are really more cooling, and more wholesome in their after-effects. However, cold water is permissible if it be boiled or filtered; but unboiled water and intimate contact with ice are forbidden, for they say that ordinary ice is full of malicious bacteria which never freeze out-which, in fact, prove to be exceedingly lively after their sojourn in cold storage. Well, it all d...
