WASHING FLANNELS AND BLANKETS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 July 1900

WASHING FLANNELS AND BLANKETS. Flannels should be washed in lukewarm suds by simply lifting up and down, squeezing in the suds and stripping through the hands. The philosophy of this process versus that of rubbing is that wool is provided with myriads of minute barbs which, hooking into one another in the rubbing process, cause shrink age. Pass through a wringer, and then through two successive clear waters of the same temperature as the suds. Dry in a warm place, as any variation of temperature in the different stages of the washing process is as fruitful a cause of shrinkage as any. Blankets which are not much soiled may be perfectly cleansed by the pressing and lifting process, passing through two suds and two rinsings, with the aid of a good wringer. Some advocate the washing of flannels in cold water throughout, but this necessitates the use of ammonia for those much soiled, and entails a greater amount of labour. Every housewife should know that lemons will keep a long time if...

INDIGESTION IN CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 July 1900

INDIGESTION IN CALVES. We have had repeated requests from various correspondents relative to ingestion in calves. Young calves have taken their milk all right, and immediately afterwards started shivering, dropping thick saliva torn their mouths, and dying within twenty-four hours. These, (^mbined with the coat, dry and star ing, capricious appetite, belly distended with * gas, arid gas passed by the mouth, and with the dung, the latter being curdy, yellow, and ^^tiS,fg^ri|i^ly fluid, and passed with strain ing, the sure signs of acute indigestion. The Scottish Farmer"thus speaks of the matter: - " Should the calves have remained with their dam the milk must be examined. It may, especially in old cows, contain too much curd, or it may have been secreted so abundantly that a weakly calf unable to take it all had u stale. Oyer repletion with milk must also be THE DAIRY- Continued. guarded against. If the calves are at the teat the food and water , of the mother should be attended to, ...

TO CURE SELF-SUCKING COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 July 1900

TO CURE SELF-SUCKING COWS. Shape a piece of wood 8 in. long and f in. thick, as shown in illustration, the sides being bevelled and the ends pointed. Gut the groove | in. deep. Throw the cow, and when perfectly motionless, pierce the grizze of the nose with a sharp, narrow-bladed knife and \\V%^ insert the stick. The stick must fit close or it will not stay, hence the need of making the hole small. Once in, it will not distress the cow. It is generally the best cows that are pelf-suckers, the habit being due to the ex treme pressure of milk causing pain. There are many devices having the same object, but this plan seems to answer very well.

POULTRY. WINTER POULTRY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 July 1900

POULTRY. WINTER POULTRY NOTES. WINTER EGGS.-Winter eggs will never come in large numbers unless they are speci ally prepared for, and unless the most careful attention is bestowed upon the birds which are to produce them. The best winter laying pullets, as my notes have so frequently shown, are birds which possess the laying powers of the nan-sitters, coupled with the great hardi ness of the feather-legged varieties. The nearest approach we can get to this two-fold excellence is in a cross between the two classes of fowl. As a kind of artificial product, they must be treated a little differently from ordin ary stock. In the first place, it is absolutely necessary for their welfare that they should be kept warm at night. A cold, draughtly fowl house is out of the question if winter eggs are desired. Next, shelter in the early morning, especially when the weather is severe or wet, is also essential; and, if possible, a covered run for use on. rainy days. Thirdly, green food in some fo...

An Ingenious Potato-Sorter. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 July 1900

An Ingenious Potato-Sorter. Herewith in shown a device for rapidly and easily sorting potatoes as they are taken from the rows. The upper incline has, cross wise, rounded strips, with spaces between, as a flooring. As the potatoes pass down the incline the small ones fall through the open ings into the lower incline, the large tubers falling into one basket and the smaller ones into the other. The rounded strips do not bruise the potatoes. As an instance of what the Machinery Agent has to put up with, we think that the follow ing letter, received by a local Machinery Firm, could scarcely be equalled : -" What do you send a man to repare my reaper and bin der that nows nothin about it the cross peeces he put on broke the furst time i use the machine and the seat bar snapt and dam neer killed me if i had i would have sude your ferm for damages, the Man told me the mettal he put in was unbreakable but it is brittler nor glass now i have to* employ men cutting the crops with scithes. co...

A New Colonial Union Jack. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 July 1900

A New Colonial Union Jack. General Brabant's Colonial division, now at the front, possesses a Union Jack, which, by its special design, symbolises the loyalty of the world-wide dominions of the Queen. THE REPRESENTATIVE COLONIAL FLAG PRESENTED TO GENERAL BRABANT. In this design the bottom quarter of the flag, next the staff, is studded with seven silver stars in the form of the Great Bear (which typifies British possessions in the Northern hemisphere), the two pointers pointing to a purple star at the top, symbolical of the Motherland and devotion of the Empire, while the right half of the flag is studded with five golden stars in the form of the Southern Cross, representing our colonies in the Southern hemisphere. The flag was designed by Lieutenant-Colo nel Campbell, of Cheltenham, and worked by Mrs. Campbell.

HOME SEPARATORS v. FACTORIES. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 July 1900

HOME SEPARATORS v. FACTORIES. From inquiries made by our repre sentative among West Moreton dairymen it would appear that there is a distinct profit to uie farmer who has his own separator, in pre ference to sending his milk to a creamery. A Rosewood farmer at the Ipswich Show in stanced to our representative his own case. He formerly supplied 25 gallons of milk per day to a creamery, for which he received 4|d. per gallon at the latter end of June-cream was then at the rate of 3d. for 40 test. He is now separating with a De Laval, and from the same quantity of milk he received 358) of cream at 35 test, at 4^ per B). This shows a profit to him of 3/7 per day. Another strong incentive to the individual use of separators is the time gained by the farmer, since there is no wailing his turn at the creamery, and no getting up with the stars to be first there. At first sight this might not seem a very unim portant matter, but cases have been mentioned to us in which a farmer is lucky to&am...

THE LONDON BUTTER MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 July 1900

THE LONDON BUTTER MARKET. The temperature all over North-Western Europe is still below the normal, and since February very little rain has fallen. The con sequence is the pastures are very deficient in amount, and the hay crop will undoubtedly be light. Indeed, if hot weather were to set in pastures would wither up very rapidly as there is no bottom grass to shield the surface of the ground from the evaporating effects of hot weather. Unless warm weather accom panied by genial rains come quickly, the already high price of butter will rise still higher. The season is fully a month late, and is altogether abnormal. There has been a steady demand for Aus tralian and New Zealand Butter of " choicest" quality all through the month of May, and prices for the same have been slowly advanc ing until to-day on spot ft is worth 96/- @ 98/ per cwt., an unprecedented position. Last season at this time there was no Australia!! or New Zealand butter on the market, and to day, in."choicest," only N...

THE INSPECTOR OF DAIRIES. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 July 1900

At a meeting of the Central Board .of Health, held in Brisbane on the nth inst, the report of the Dairy Injector was read. The report stated that within a radius of twelve miles of Brisbane there were 601 registered dairies, a large percentage being small con cerns, milking two or three cows. The majority of the larger dairies were kept in a proper sanitary condition, but a number of the smaller ones were frequently so situated that it was impossible to carry out sanitary requirements. We commented strongly at the time upon the appointment then made to this inspector ship, and this, one of the first reports, fully bears out our contention that the city requires for the' health of its inhabitants, and the little children especially, the highest grade of man possible, so that the abominations thus lightly referred to, which we know to be too true, should be dealt with promptly. Many dairies around the city could be much improved in their sanitary surroundings, and it is but a display ...

The Proper Feeding of Cattle. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 August 1900

The Proper Feeding of Cattle. By J. H. BAIRNSDALE. Almost all the diseases of cattle, arise either from exposure to wet and cold weather; from their food being of a bad quality; or deficient in quantity; or from being changed too' sud denly from poor, unwholesome keep, to rich pasture. Cattle in their native state are almost free from diseases, but man, breeding with some particular object in view, has often weakened the constitution of the breed, and that, to^ gether with their manner of feeding and care make them liable to disease. Coarse, fibrous hay overtaxes the digestive powers, irritates the mucous surface of the stomachs and bowels and may cause an inac tive condition of the stomachs, or may lead to dysentery from its effect on the bowels. Timothy hay, while good feed for horses, when fed to cattle that do not have much exercise, will lead to constipation. Hay fed to cattle should contain clover on account of its laxative effects, because this will aid in keeping the bowels ...
