Woman's World. THE BRAVEST BATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 August 1900

lllemopi's XlJorfd. THE BRAVEST BATTLE. The bravest battle that ever was fought! Shall I tell you where and when ? On the maps of the world you will find it not; 'T was fought by the mothers of men. Nay, not with cannon, or battle shot, With sword, or nobler pen; Nay, not with eloquent word or thought, From mouths of wonderful men. But deep in a walled-up woman's heart Of woman that would not yield, But bravely, silently, bore her part Lo ! there is that battlefield. No marshaling troop, no bivouac song; No banner to gleam and wave; But, oh! these battles, they last so long From babyhood to the grave! Yet, faithful still as a bridge of stars, She fights in her walled-up town Fights on and on in the endless wars. Then silent, unseen-goes down. O, ye with banners and battle shot, And soldiers to shout and praise, I tell you the kingliest victories fought Were fought in these silent ways. O, spotless woman in a world of shame 1 With splendid and silent scorn, Go back to God as white as...

SCOUR IN CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 August 1900

SCOUR IN CALVES. If you have one calf with white scour it will spread among the remainder. It is an in fectious disease, spreads rapidly, and once occurring in cowsheds will continue to haunt them until they are thoroughly cleansed and disinfected. Curative measures are vary . un satisfactory. If broughrup by the hand there is always greater danger on account of cold or soured milk, though the mere souring, apart from putrid decomposition, may soon beget an accommodating action on the part of the stomach, which will, in many cases, render it proof against its evil effects. Even this, however, it is well to avoid, hence the allow ance of a couple of tablespoonfuls of lime water with each meal is a valuable prevention when young animals are fed from a pail. But there is also another cause of direct disorder of the stomach-the presence of hair balls, the individual hairs which the calves have e wall owed while licking each other or sucking their * fellows, which, rolling together, form...

Home Notes.-Continued. DIARRHOEA.-When a man has died of diar rhoea, he has died of cholera in reality, and it may be well for travellers to know that the most important thing ;n its arrest is absolute quietude on a bed. The next thing is to eat nothing but common rice, parched like coffee, and then boiled and taken with a little salt and butter. Drink little or no liquid of any kind. Bits of ice may be eaten and swallowed at wilL Every step taken in diarrhoea, every spoonful of liquid, only aggravates the disease. * * * FOR A COLD.-Next time you have a cold try inhaling eucalyptus oil or sal volatile and lemon-juice. Fill a jug with boiling water, pour a little oil in, and inhale the fumes. Do this several times a day. * * BILIOUSNESS.-Active exercise in the open air is desirable in bilious attacks, and an entire disuse of sugar in tea will often aid in the cure. Podophyllin pills is the usual remedy in medicine. * * * ENAMEL-LINED IRON SAUCEPANS will last with care for years, but ...

RECIPES. STRAWBERRY JAM.-Stem the fruit the night before, and put in a shallow dish. Mea sure the sugar-a cup to a cup of fruit-and sprinkle half over the fruit; this will form a rich syrup, in which to boil the strawberries. In the morning strain off this syrup or juice into ~ne pan, and when it boils, drop in the strawberries one by one. Let them boil for twenty minutes, then add the remainder of the sugar, and boil hard for exactly ten minutes. This method will ensure the fruit being whole and the conserve beautifully clear and rich in colour. * * * SWEETBREADS.-Soak one hour in cold water, then plunge into boiling water and allow just to simmer 30 minutes. Cool in the water in which they were cooked (which save for basting), remove skin and pipes, rub over with soft butter, roll in seasoned flour, and lay on wafers of sweet bacon in a baking-pan; add a wafer of bacon on top of each piece, and bake, basting frequently (the basting-stock being made hot) to a rich brown.

PIGS AND BREWERS' GRAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 August 1900

PIGS AND BREWERS' GRAINS. There are many who consider fresh brewers' grains useful when given in small quantities and mixed with other foods to sows when suckling their young, but they are not a fattening food or suitable to the production of high-quality pork, and whatever may be the value of grains from the mash-tub of the brewer, whether they have been employed in the production of porter or ale,, as a milk producing food, even their most confirmed admirers do not pretend that they are desir able for feeding pigs. They are not much good for store pigs-no good at all for fatten ing, because so large a proportion of them are passed undigested. They are very good when fresh-for dairy cows or store cattle in the cool months, but it is advisable to with hold them during summer, owing to their heating qualities.

WHAT A HORSE WOULD SAY IF HE COULD SPEAK. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 August 1900

WHAT A HORSE WOULD SAY IF HE COULD SPEAK. Don't lend me to some blockhead who has leis sense than 1 have. Don't hitch me to an iron railing in cold frosty weather. I need the skin on my tongue. Don't leave me tied up in a stall with a lot of rubbish right where I have to lie down. I am tired and cannot select a suitable place. Don't compel me to eat more salt than I want by mixing it with my oats. I know better than any other animal how much I need. Don't think because I go free under the whip I don't get tired. You would move up under a whip. Don't think because I'm a horse that "Bathurst Burrs" and "Scotch Thistles" im prove my hay. Don't whip me when I get frightened along a road or I will expect it next time and may cause trouble. Don't trot me up hill, .for I have to carry you and the buggy and myself too. Try it yourself sometime-run up a hill with a big load. Don't tell me to "whoa" unless you mean it. Teach me to stop at the word. Don't make me drink ice cold water, nor put ...

POULTRY. HENS AS EGG-DESTROYERS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 23 August 1900

POULTRY. HENS AS EGG-DESTROYERS. There is probably nothing more annoying than to know or to find that you have a hen in the yard that is a destroyer of eggs. There is, however, nothing more difficult to overcome than the habit a great many hens have of eating their eggs. While there is no way of entirely curing hens from eating eggs, to prevent them by mechanical means is very easy. A nest with a double bottom, the upper one inclined so as to allow the egg to roll to the lower one, answers very well; but the habit is one that is easily ac quired, and a lasting one. Hens, it may be reasonably supposed, learn it by being in the presence of broken eggs, but they rarely break eggs themselves until so taught If the nests are so arranged as to keep the eggs out of their reach they will forget the habit if fed liberally with meat for a while, but the safest plan is to deprive such fowls of their heads before the habit becomes general with the lot.-" Adelaide Observer."

North Rockhampton. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 22 September 1900

11 - North Rockhampton. The borough of North Rockhampton is situated on the north side of the Fitzroy River, containing a population of 2,700. It was erected into a distinct municipality on the 19th September, 1883. It isr connected- with the city of Rockhampton by a suspension bridge over the Fitzroy River. In photographs this bridge makes a very picturesque picture, but it is totally inadequate for the amount of every day traffic, something more substantial and roomy being required for the numberless heavy vehicles, cabs, carts, and drafts of tat stock that are constantly passing over the same. Thousands of sheep and cattle are yearly passing this way to the Lake's Creek Works. The principal buildings in North Rockhampton are the Municipal Chambers, the Forresters' Hall, Roman Catholic Church, Primitive' Methodist Church, together with a number of hotels, which for appearance and accommodation will bear very favorable com parison with those of the older towns of the .The Butcherin...

The Lockyer District.—Continued. A TRIP TO THE MISTAKE MOUNTAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 22 September 1900

The Lockyer District.-Con^nt^. A TRIP: TO THE MISTAKE MOUN TAINS. - A day's journey up Laidley Creek, past all the farms and out into the wilderness of the ranges, takes one to the foot of Mount Mis take* a landmark of the Lockyer District. Right .at'-the. foot of, MooIntMistake, nestling amongst a host -of frowning spurs, is the saw mill of Messrs, Filschie and Broadfoot, of Too woomba. This firm with; commendable enter prise have established a most up-to-date plant in rather an inaccessible spot, but the splen did cedar groves on the Mistake Mountains held out such inducement as the firm could not resist. The mill itself is advantageously situated, both for bringing in the logs and sending away the sawn cedar to Laidley. The cedar is cut up the side of the mountain and is sent down almost to the end of the breaking down plant, on a most ingenious shoot. This shoot is over a quarter of a mile long, and the logs "scoot" down it at a remarkable rate of speed. From the end of the shoo...

O far as the mineral resources of the district are concerned, the Norman by can well be included in the list of those in Queensland whose un developed riches are very great. It is an area in which gold,* silver, copper, and other minerals have been unearthed, in several parts to a very valu able extent, and in which coal measures of great thickness have been opened up and the coal found to be magnificent in quality. ' Alto gether many inducements are upon every side for the investment of capital necessary to bring to light the deposits at present unworked ow ing to the absence of the energy and capital for their development.

St. Lawrence-Broadsound. The long waves murmur on the sunlit shore, Chanting that ancient, rhythmic slumber song, With which they lulled the infant world of yore. And soothed it ceaslessly the ages long. R. John Arthur Macartney explored this portion of the Normanby with Mr. Gollin Archer in 1858, and subsequently took up the country at the head of Broadsound and Waverley, four miles from St. Lawrence, in i860. He landed the first supplies on the bank of St Lawrence Creek, near Port Denison Lagoon, and bore the brunt of the natives' attacks on stock and property, and selected the site, and bought the first lot in the town. As Resident Magistrate, he had charge of the police who were sent there at that time by Mr. Jarddne, Police Magistrate at Rockhampton. With Messrs. Sydney Davis, of Peak Yale, and Charles Hill, employee, they found a road up the range to Clermont, which opened the road for wool and copper to Broadsound. In the early sixties the range was crossed at a point some mi...
