Exhibitions of the Month. The Brisbane Annual Exhibition. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 August 1900

Exhibitions | JVIonth. The Brisbane Annual Exhibition. Brisbane was thronged with visitors from the country during show week, upwards of 500 coming from Rockhampton and district, some 1,500 from the country west of the city -Ipswich, Rosewood, Laidley, Gatton, and Toowoomba-while further westward from the drought stricken districts the show was an op portunity for a change which was fully taken advantage of. The Exhibition as a whole was disappointing in many respects. One of the sections which compared unfavourably with former years was the farm produce exhibits, the district competition being confined to the Logan and Lockyer societies, the former win ning by twelve points. The Logan was ahead in dairy produce, fresh and preserved foods, fruits, vegetables, sugar, wine, and wool; they were behind, however, in hay and chaff, cereals, woods, and minerals. Some very at tractive trophies were displayed by the State Farms at Westbrook and the Hermitage. The display of horses was very g...

The Districts of Queensland (4). The Lockyer District. "Where the Summer Skies and the Maiden's eyes, Are brighter than bard may tell," [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 August 1900

The Districts of Queensland (4). The Lockyer District. " Where the Summer Skies and the Maiden's eyes, Are brighter than bard may tell," *rfc*5vS> HE district known as the Lockyer is entered upon immediately after passing the picturesque Grand chester railway station and crossing the Little Liverpool Range. Near the summit what is known as the Victoria Tunnel is passed through, in length 600 yards, and the descent of the western side is commenced. From this point a magnificent view of valley and farm land is seen, broken up by wooded hills, which run down from the Main Range away to the south. Far away in the hazy distance is the great Main Range, which, taking a northern and easterly course, forms the southern and western boundary. The northern boundary is hidden away in some distant creek bank, while the eastern side is represented by the range down which we are descending. The district for 60 or more years has been known as one of the richest in southern Queensland though its ...

SHEEP. TAILING AND CASTRATING LAMBS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 August 1900

SHEEP. TAILING AND CASTRATING LAMBS. "Inexperienced" requests, "a few simple instructions as to castrating and tailing lambs, and a little general advice as to the precau tions relating to the matter." The last part of the request is by no means the least important, for when things go wrong after the operation it more frequently arises from the neglect of obvious precautions than from any bungling in its performance, however inexpert or inex perienced the operator. The first precaution to be taken is to avoid letting the lambs get too big. Within certain limits-say 10 or 12 days-the earlier lambs are operated on the better. The younger the animals the less the risk from haemorrhage, and the less it seems to hurt them, both at the time and in its after effects. The difficulty here is that lambing spreads over several weeks, and if we wait until it is complete some of the lambs have got a great deal too big. This makes it desir able-and it is not impracticable where the shepherd or th...

Hints on Purchasing Sheep. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 August 1900

Hints on Purchasing Sheep. As a large number of sheep will have to De purchased to replace the enormous losses in the Western country, it will be advisable to take note of the following advice given by a well-known pastoralist visitor at the late Ex hibition : " First, let there be pronounced masculinity in the male, and femininity in the female. Sheep should be neither sexless nor character less. They should bear the stamp and charac ter of the breed they represent. This breed character is a mark of good blood, and it should be manifest in no unmistakable manner. The sire should be impressive, resolute and of noble bearing. He should be distinctly the head of the flock in every sense of the word. To meet these requirements he must have good constitutional and vital powers. With out these no animal is fit to head a herd or flock. In selecting a sire, look first at the head. If deficient there look no further, but reject at once. Insist upon a head that faces you boldly with a wide f...

Nuggety Horses. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 August 1900

Nuggety Horses. Now that the colonies are awakening to the necessity of paying better attention to the breeding of horses, the publication of a small work by a foremost English Authority, Sir Walter Gilbey, Bart., entitled " Small Horses in Warfare," will be welcomed, and its merits will be appreciated no less in Queensland than it has been on the further side of the globe. In England and the colonies the small horse has been disowned on all hands, and a determined effort made in all quarters to make everything big. A good deal of" the bigness obtained is mere legginess and grossness of bone, and this brochure should be the means of opening the eyes of more than the pur chasers of army remounts to the wisdom 01 encouraging the breeding of horses whose chief characteristics are staying power, hardi ness, and independence of high feeding. Such horses have been demanded during the South African war, and Great Britain had to look for them elsewhere than within the British Isles. In the ...

The Dip Question. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 August 1900

The Dip Question. A great deal of the wool in this country is damaged through the use of inferior dips, and very much reduced in value thereby. This is not as it should be, and here, again, we have a lesson to learn from our brethren in the colonies, and I think if there is one thing more than another we want light upon it is the dipping question. It is, comparatively speaking, a modern invention^ and as a sub ject of discussion, is, I think, even more con troversial than the wool question. Why do' we dip sheep ? I suppose on one point we are all agreed, that dipping is necessary to kill the vermin or parasites which infest sheep. Be yond that, we come to the controversial points. Take the theory held by almost all the dip manufacturers as to dip stimulating the growth of the wool. I, for one, am old-fashioned enough to believe that the best way to stimu late the growth of the fleece is to put plenty of good food into' the stomach. As a rule, you never see sheep which receive plenty...

WHAT A BACHELOR SAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 August 1900

WHAT A BACHELOR SAYS. Love is a disease you must die of before you get well. About once a week a man thinks his wife was a fool for marrying him; the rest of the time he is thinking that he was a fool for marrying her. According to its mother, when a baby smiles in its sleep, it is "talking to the angels." According to the doctor, it has wind on its stomach. A society function, in a woman's mind, is a something where women wear dresses made on purpose. A woman will sometimes admit she did wrong; but she always insists there was a good reason for it. Some women say they would not marry "the best man on earth." Certainly not; the best men on earth don't get married. I dQn't see Harry Brown with that pretty girl so often as I used to-perhaps he married her. -

ETIQUETTE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 August 1900

ETIQUETTE. If you call upon a married lady, and you are also married, you would leave one of your cards, and two of your husband's. If you call upon an unmarried lady, or a widow, and you are married, then you would leave one of your cards and one of your hus band's. If an unmarried lady calls upon an unmar ried lady, she would leave one of her cards. In going in to dinner, the host leads the way with the lady of highest rank, and the hostess follows last with the gentleman of highest rank. You say " How do you do ?" when shaking hands with a friend, and " Good-bye " when staking your departure. A parlour-maid would not knock at the dining-room or drawing-room door previous to entering. A servant would use a small silver salver, or any fancy tray, to bring in a letter to her master or mistress. A servant would receive cards from an after noon visitor with her hand. A lady's-maid does not wear a cap or apron. When making an afternoon call, and you are offered tea, it is not essential...

THE MEANING OF ORANGE BLOSSOMS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 August 1900

THE MEANING OF ORANGE BLOSSOMS. The meaning of orange blossoms is thus designated by traditions: A Moorish king sent a splendid orange tree as a gift to a Spanish monarch. Never before had such a beautiful plant bloomed in the royal gardens. Every one coveted a slip, but the king refused the boor to all. One day a branch with its glossy leaves and starry blossoms was accidentally broken off, and the gardener gave it to his pretty 'daughter who was the bethothed of a humble artisan. The girl had no dot, and the wedding seemed impossible. A foreign am bassador who was promenading in the garden noticed the spray, which the girl had stuck in her jetty tresses. In exchange for the covet ed treasure he offered her a sum sufficient for her dowry. Overjoyed, she accepted, and the marriage was celebrated.

THE COW'S UDDER. GEO. WATSON, FERNDALE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 August 1900

THE COW'S UDDER. GEO. WATSON, FERNDALE. " Every person who knows anything of milk knows that the last drawn milk of a cow is much richer than the other milk ; but the reason for this is not generally known. Indeed, it has been a subject of dispute, and the ex planation usually given is quite erroneous. The structure of the cow's udder well studied will explain why the strippings are so rich. Any fact learned is interesting in two ways; first, because it is pleasant for the mere know ledge gained and the relation of it to matters of daily life; and second, because the know ledge is a guide to the right kind of practice in dairy work. A cow's udder is composed of a sold mass of glandular substance apparently made up of very small nodules or masses, through which a fine membrane passes so as to separate the whole into cells or divisions. The udder is divided into two parts by a membrane from the front to> the back, making two separate and distinct halves. These halves are not divide...

HAND SEPARATORS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 August 1900

HAND SEPARATORS. The hand separator system, or the system of separating the milk on the farm and taking the cream to the creamery to be made into butter is the most modern of all creamery systems, and in my opinion is the ideal way of running creameries. This plan does away with the hard task of hauling so> much mint to the factory and back to the farm again ; it also does away with the enormous loss of butterfat in the raising of the cream, for the farm machines on the market at the present time will take practically all the butterfat from the milk, and the best thing of all is where the farmer has a hand machine he is able to feed the milk to his calves while warm, and with the addition of a little ground flax, it makes a better feed than the skim milk of the gravity process. At the experiment station of Minnesota one of the finest herds of calves to be found has been raised on this separator milk, with the addition of the ground flax, although in many counties some of the best...

THE DAIRYING INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 August 1900

THE DAIRYING INDUSTRY. In Queensland to-day there is more money for the dairy farmer than for those engaged in raising any other kind of produce; even with the high price of beef it is not safe to drop the dairy and raise beef alone. The prices of butter have been higher the past year than for a number of years, and the indications are that these good prices will continue for as long as the sun shines and the rain con tinues to bless the land with their presence the golden product of the dairy cow will never grow less. Winter and summer it is just the same, the golden harvest continues all the year and the crop is sure, and you have the knowledge that you are furnishing the world with the most wholesome and nutritious article of food that ever men partook of, and they have been par 'king of it for 6,000 years and are seemingly not getting tired of it yet, and 6,000 years from now the descendants of the old dairy cow will continue to shower their blessings on our great grandchildren....

ANNIVERSARIES OF A WEDDING. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 August 1900

ANNIVERSARIES OF A WEDDING. The first anniversary is termed a cotton wed ding ; the second, paper; the third is leather; the fourth, for some reason or other, is not to be noted; but the fifth is the wooden, and the seventh woollen. Then there is a gap to the tenth, which is a tin wedding; the twelfth is silk and fine linen, and the fifteenth, crystal; then comes a gap to the twentieth anniversary, which is a copper wedding, while the twenty fifth is, of course, a silver wedding. The thirtieth anniversary is called the pearl, the fortieth the ruby (a decidedly expensive one this would be, only that people translate ruby into ruby glass, ruby leather, and ruby every thing else), the fiftieth is a gold wedding, and the seventy-fifth, a very rare anniversary indeed, is the diamond.
