Horticultural Societies. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 July 1900

Horticultural Societies. Mr. James Mitchell, manager of the Queens land Acclimatisation Society, at a meeting of the Horticultural Society of Queensland, read a paper on the functions of horticultural socie ties, which is. deserving of the greatest atten tion, as the colony pays annually a consider able sum as subsidies to these societies, and certainly deserves much greater practical re turn. He stated that most of the societies are content with issuing prize schedules and hold ing large shows, losing sight of some of the principal objects for which they are intended. Queensland! vegetation ^should* stimulate a desire for horticulture in every man, woman, and child in the colony, for in no other Australian colony are the resources of a horti culturist greater. The Press is also open, and through it intercommunication between lovers and workers in gardening might l>e spread in all districts. The writer thought it quite time that Queensland should be one of the leading centres in ...

Locusts. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 July 1900

Locusts, j Now that locusts are becoming an increased danger to farmers on the Downs, the follow ing efforts of American scientists to deal with these pests will be of interest. Mr. G. W. Martin, of Sterling, Colo., U.S.A., writing to the Director of the Capetown Bacteriological Institute, re the use of locust fungus, says: - " Early in June I used one tube of the fungus, but could not see that it had any effects. About July ioth, I used another, and the way the grasshoppers died was a surprise to all who came to see my fields. I have 130 acres of lucerne and cleaned the grasshoppers off so clean that I could not see that they damaged me, only to a slight degree. For the last three years they have almost ruined my crops, but thanks to you I forestalled them last year. I found that all fed with fungus did not sicken to the extent of imparting disease to others. Probably not more than 5 per cent The fol lowing was my most successful experiment. I caught the locusts (about a peck) in t...

The Horse. (Continued). FEEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 July 1900

FEEDING. ENGLISH POTATOES are used as an article of food for the horse in many districts. If fed raw and in large quantities they often produce in digestion. Their digestibility is favoured by steaming or boiling. They possess, in com mon with other roots, slight laxative proper ties. THE HORSE HAS A SMALL STOMACH.-An ex amination of the anatomical manikin of the horse shows that the horse has a very smaij stomach in proportion to his size. This proves to us that the horse should be fed in small quantities and often. The disproportion be tween the size of the stomach and the amount of water usually given at one time shows plainly that the horse should always be watered before feeding. Feed at least three times a day, and not wholly on concentrated food. Bulky food must be given to detain the food in its passage, through the small intes tines, so that it can be thoroughly digested and the nutriment absorbed. TEN POUNDS OF HAY A DAY.-A horse that receives twelve quarts of oats a day, ...

BEFORE BEING PHOTOGRAPHED. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 July 1900

BEFORE BEING PHOTOGRAPHED. Remember that if you are short and stout, do not be taken as a full-length picture. For a short woman, a graceful and pleasing picture would be a sitting half-length, the figure so turned as to hide the too, too solid flesh. So, too, is it if you are one of Pharoah's lean tribe, a full-length portrait will make you look thinner still. Here just a bust picture must be yours. No loud stripes and checks, and nothing really striking, should be worn in a photo graph. Do not affect any forced expression or attitude; always go to a good and practical photographer, and give him the benefit of ex ercising his artistic and professional ability. Do not stare at the camera, else a horror struck expression will probably resist. Look pleasant, and to do so think of some pleasing object, but avoid all attempts at smiling. * * * To be sold together.-At Bury, in Lanca shire, they tell of a horse-coper who once offered for sale three awful old " crocks." The three stood clo...

A Tax Upon Stallions. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 July 1900

A Tax Upon Stallions. We are pleased to see that some of our leading: stock owners are awakening: to the necessity of paying greater attention to the breeding: of horses, arid although we con sider that a tax of -f.2< ner annum, advocated bv Mr. A. T. Oerfc o^ Dulacca- is too much, we insert here h*s able contribution;;|o thie Press upon this important sub feet. Mr.Clerk says: -" I hope now it is beine: $hojyn how utterly this important industry has deterior ated that something will be done, with the assistance of legislation, toagain bring Jiorse breeding up to the standard and class that it was some twenty or twenty-five years ago. In those days horses well up to 12, 14, and 16 hands could be easily purchased in any: num bers, fit to carry a heavy man in any hunting field, with pace enough to keep with ttte fastest of hounds. But to-day there are none of these, but instead plenty of the miserable, shapeless weeds only fit to carry a boy, and then only for a short distan...

The Fan. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 July 1900

The Fan. " What grace the fan lends to a woman who knows how to use it!" exclaims Madame de Stael. "It undulates, it flutters, it expands, it closes, it rises, it falls at will. It is the most powerful weapon in beauty's arsenal." The fail, to be sure, is all-powerful in the hand of her who has measured its capabilities. The Delsartean pupil is not suffered to grad uate until she has mastered the evolutions of this dangerous weapon; for American women are amateurs of the fan and strive to curb their natural restlessness in order to master its slow rhythmic movements. The dark-eyed Spaniard is absolute mistress of the fan. By means of it she avows her pas sion or warns off a rejected suitor ; she threa tens, commands, cajoles, and conquers. Her fans are many arid varied-from the bheap paper of the bull-ring to the gold and tortoise shell of the boudoir. But more than feathers, ivory, or parchment, she loves the transparent gauze " flirtation " fan. Of such skill her English sister kn...

Conversation. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 July 1900

T' - Conversation. The elements that go to make up a good conversationalist are varied and manifold, but the first and the most . important of all is unselfishness. One must first of all become a good listener, because there is much to' l3e gained by listening. We do not impoverish others, though we enrich ourselves when we listen to other people's ideas, and intellectual charity teaches us that it is but kind to listen to the outpourings of an overburthened brain or heart. At first we may not feel an interest in the specimens of humanity committed to our tender mercies, but gradually we begin 10 discover the gold underlying the dross, and we learn that every man or woman, however trivial and commonplace they may appear, there is a God-given soul-a glorious instru ment-and if we sweep the chords we shall strike some note whose music may reconcile us for ever with the qualities of our kind. Human beings are most interesting, and the key to happiness is that gift of sympathy which lif...

BEES. ASSISTANCE TO BEE KEEPERS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 July 1900

BEES. ASSISTANCE TO BEE KEEPERS. This is a subject that should have the atten^ tion of bee keepers much more than it has up to the present. We must not forget that there are two sorts of assistance (so called). The one is that of sending a lecturer on apiculture round the country to teach people how to start in the bee line, and the otheT is helping to stamp out diseases and encouraging the export trade. Now, with regard to sending a lecturer round the country to spread knowledge of bee keep ing and honey raising, myself and nearly all those I have spoken to think that it is unde sirable. In New South Wales a few years back honey (extracted) was bringing from 3d. to 46. per ft) wholesale, and those people who took good care of their bees made a sound living. Then some thought (especially hive and im plement makers and queen raisers) it would be a good idea to get the Government to send an expert in apriculture round the colony to lecture and to induce people to go in for bees. Of co...

Woman's World. Underwear and Corsets. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 July 1900

itJemein's Underwear and Corsets. While the foundation for a 'beautiful form should undoubtedly be laid in infancy, those to whom nature has not taken kindly neverthe less yearn for a good figure, more especially with the existing fashions, when a good and well-developed form was never more desirable. Every woman should make it a,duty to* render herself as beautiful and attractive as possible, and use every rational and natural means of developing and preserving her charms, among which a handsome form is undoubtedly the most captivating, for many women who can lay no claim to> a beautiful face have gained ad miration galore by the beauty of their form; indeed, I doubt not but that a perfect form possesses a power of captivation beyond any charms that the most beautiful face possesses. Yet women go on painting and powdering their faces, decking their heads with showy millinery, piling on any amount of expensive clothing, etc., all of which means naught if the "foundation" exists n...
