ROUND THE SHOPS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 28 March 1900

ROVlflD THE SHOPS. The change of the season into the cooler months of April and May will come as a relief to the long, dry summer that we have just passed. Usually the month of March sees greater changes in the Queen Street shops than are visible so far, The dry, hot days are answerable for this, for one clings to the lightest dress in these days, and no array of Eve's desires for colder season, be they ever so chic, would be a temptation at present, except, perhaps, tea-gowns. One can never overburden oneself with these, since for home wear there is no style so becoming and graceful, and all the leading houses have a delightful assortment of these. Some beautiful examples are in the show rooms of FINNEY, ISLES & Co., one specially worth mention of sage1 green canvas, made over silk. The style is unique; it is made with long g ra c e f u 1 draperi e s from the shoulder, and cor sage outlined with black applique in lace, medici collar, softened with folds of Tuscan chiffon. A...

AGRICULTURE Which Ground Pays the Farmer Best? Acres That Are Little Gold Mines. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 28 March 1900

Which Ground Pays the Farmer Best ? Acres That Are Little Gold Mines. The fact that 120,000 marks (nearly ^24,000) was paid for one single acre of vine yard in the Moselle wine-growing district, says " The Daily Mail," makes one realize what huge returns a small piece of soil can some times yield. To repay the purchaser, the an nual produce of this acre must sell for some thing like ,£2,500. Putting aside crops under glass, which even in this country give returns running into hundreds of pounds per acre, the land which gives the biggest income per acre in Britain is that cultivated by the great seedsmen. A single acre, the property of a seedsman on the Great Western, between London and Oxford, has yielded in one year flower seeds to the estimated value of ^270. But, natur ally, this sort of cultivation, what with chemi cal fertilizers, labour, and water, needs large outlay as well as wide experience to prove suc cessful in. The crop which pays the British farmer best as a rule is ho...

Seasonable Notes on RoSes. Iri the list published this year by the Na tional Rose Society we find 140 new varieties have been sent out since 1S95; but of this comparatively large number only a few can rlay claim to be classed as roses oL exhibition standard. Amongst the new varieties of the present year are a few claiming special merit.

The Goat as a Milk-giver. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 28 April 1900

The Goat as a Milk-giver. It is stated that an attempt to improve the goat as a milk-giver is being made by M. J. Crepin, of Paris. He has established a model goat dairy, and has obtained very satis factory stock by crossing the^*ekt native goats with the Nubian buck, the la"ti&r being vigor ous, indifferent to cold, and hopeless. Goat's milk is richer in casein and* inore digestible than cow's milk. In composition it is more nearly like the milk of tne human mother than any other, and it has the advantage of being comparatively free from risk of infec tion, the goat being seldom affected with tuberculosis and other dangerous maladies. The butter, like the cheese, is found to be remarkably good.

ROUND THE SHOPS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 28 April 1900

The colder season was ushered in with a sharp day on Easter Monday, and the various drapery houses have had a very brisk time with their new winter goods. Lancer hats, which have found such favour in the South, have become very fashionable here. Allan and Stark have opened up a large variety in soft chips, kahki, brown, and black.

Extension of Time for XHOSE whose kilOW Payment of Rents. ledge of the climatic conditions of the colony is limited to the coastai lands, where the rainfall is fairly regu lar and sufficient for agricultural purposes, can form no conception of the terrible state of affairs in the Western districts, from South to North, in consequence of the want of rain. On all sides we hear of crops planted and re planted only to fail again and again. Yet the farmers have still kept up their courage and are making a desperate struggle to keep their properties in their own hands, trusting to better times to help them out of difficulties which are none of their own making, but have been forced upon them by the drought. It is not, therefore, surprising that the farmer^| should, owing to their depleted means, asfs | for an extension of time for the.payment ot j|? their March rents.

A Method of Hastening the Ripening of Fruit [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 28 April 1900

A Method of Hastening the Ripening of Fruit Some eight or ten days, and also increasing its size, has frequently been mentioned in agricultural papers. It is effected by girdling the limb with wire below the fruit tightly enough to check the return or downward flow of sap, directing its circulation backward to advance maturity and develop size. -The "American Gardener" explains the process thus :-" Trcs take in their food from the soil; minerals dissolve in water, which passes from cell to cell through the centre of the tree until the leaves are reached, where it is digested, so to Speak, and is combined with carbon from, the atmosphere, and the assimilated food passes downward, immediately under the bark, build ing up the wood cells and developing the fruit. Now, if we check the downward flow of the sap by pressing the bark, it throws the food back, and the fruit appropriates it, caus ing an abnormal growth and speedy ma turity." The wire must not be wrapped tight ly enough to cut ...
