FIGHTING THE MOSQUITO PEST. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 22 September 1900

FIGHTING THE MOSQUITO PEST. A month or two ago a local medical man wrote to the Willoughby Council, N.S.W., and pointed out that in other countries the mosquito pest had been kept under control by the simple and inexpensive expedient of add ing a small quantity of kerosene to Wjater holes, the idea being that the kerosene, form ing a scum on the surface of the water, first imprisons the larvae, and then kills them at its leisure. The quantity of kerosene was- so minute that it could produce no evil effects on cattle or horses that might drink, and, in fact, it might be expected to act beneficially as a medicine. The borough inspector, hav ing carried out numerous experiments, report ed favourably on the device; and now the resi dents have taken the matter up, and there is scarcely a patch of stagnant water in the dis trict that has not been treated with kerosene. A few days ago one of the aldermen added a little kerosene to a 4oo-gallon tank that was swarming with loggerheads, and i...

AGRICULTURE PRODUCE MARKET [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 22 September 1900

PRODUCE MARKET There has been little change during the month in prices, the demand and supply being in each case good. Maize , has weakened a little, and this decline is likely to continue as the new crops come into the tharkets. Some heavy consignments of strawberries have come to hand, but growers on the Blackall Range have pulped a large quantity for the jam fac tories, there being a good demand for this class of preserve.

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

LIME. No kind of lime, either ground or slaked, should be mixed with any manure. Lime should only be mixed with earth or weeds to form composts, or, when applied to the land, should be . put on at a different time from other manures. The question of the relative values of ground arid slaved lime depends on the manner of slaking and the purpose for which the lime is to be used. Generally, if the lime be carefully slaked on large heaps by the pouring on of water, it will be as valuable as ground' lime; but if it be slaked slowly in small heaps on the field, through exposure to the atmosphere, it will have a "distinctly lower ; V '. _ - * '} > *.

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

RECIPES. PORK WITH PEA PUDDING.-Boil the pork, an do not omit the vegetables, as they flavour the meat and the pudding. Use the yellow split peas, and soak a pint in coid water over night. Drain and tie them loosely in a pudding bag, and boil with the gprk for three hours. An hour before dinner remove and press through a colander, add a teaspoonful of salt, half a teaspoonful of pepper, and three eggs well beaten. Chop enough parsley to make a teaspoonful; add to the peas with a little grated nutmeg. Beat up well, sift in half a pint of flour, and pour into a pudding bag. The same bag used before will do if well washed. Tie it up tightly, drop it into the pork water again, and boil another hour. Remove, let drain, in the colander a few minutes, when turn out on to a dish. Serve with the pork and any sauce liked; mint sauce is good to serve with pork, arid a tomato sauce is always good.

SEALING FRUIT BOTTLES. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 22 September 1900

SEALING FRUIT BOTTLES. Cut circular pieces of thick, stout cloth suffi ciently large to tie over the jar or can. On these pour enough bottle cement to cover a space that will fit the opening and extend over the rim. While filling the jars lay the cemented covers on the bottom of the stove oven to soften. When the jar is ready, wipe the rim dry and apply the cover, cement side downwards, smoothing out the wrinkles and tying it with a strong string. Afterwards cover the top with some of the cement thinly spread. A few minutes will show, by the depression of the coverj that the contents are secure. This is one of the cheapest, easiest, and most expeditious ways of sealing fruit bottles. The cement is made with i oz. resin, i oz. gum shellac, i cubic in. of beeswax. Melt these in a tin cup and mix thoroughly. Use a gentle head to melt or remelt, as great heat may granulate the shellac. * * * Good Farmers do not now press ensilage with weights, but let the fodder settle by its own weight...

B. G. WILSON & CO., Ironmongers, Queen Street. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 22 September 1900

B. G. WILSON & CO., Ironmongers, Queen Street. The demand for sparklet and sparklet bottles, which we drew attention to in our last, has been so great that the stock is near ing total depletion, and a cable has been de spatched for a further and larger supply. When this splendid in vention becomes more thoroughly known, no home in the country will be without it; the highly finished special bottle, 1/3 extra for price is 7/6 for the postage and 1J6 per dozen for the sparklets, postage 6d. extra. Berkefeld filters is another necessity, espe cially to those whose water supply is drawn from a life-filled lagoon. The following letter from South Africa speaks for itself: - "London, June 2nd, 1900. ' To the Berkefeld Filter Co., Ltd. " Dear Sirs, " I have very great pleasure to write and inform you that I took one of your pump filters to South Africa with me, and I cannot tell you what a valuable addition it was to my limited equipment.

ALLAN AND STARK, Drapers, Etc. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 22 September 1900

-ALLAN AND STARK, Drapers, Etc. The summer season, as usual, brings forth goods fresh and dainty. This season promises to be a particularly dressy one, judging by fabrics, laces, gimps, chiffon, not to speak of the elaborate style of the dresses. The severely plain blouse and skirt is seen only in linen, drill, or duck. The skirts are a mass of tucks, lace, flounc ings, insertions, bebe ribbon, etc. The managers of the showroom and dress making departments in ALLAN AND STARK'S have just returned from their half-yearly visit to the South in the firm's interest, and the results of their visit are to be seen in the millinery, mantle, and dressmaking-in fact, they secured novelties for all departments. The holland costumes, from 12/11 to 17/11, are excellent value, while the silk and muslin blouses vie with each other for first place. They are irresistible, and are marked at very moderate prices. The silk from 21/- to £2, and the muslin 2/11 to 30/-. The styles are varied, and the trimm...

In the course of a few years they added jewellery to their stock, and greatly ex tended their business, in due course opened a branch in this city in 1858 under the title of " Flavelle Brothers."

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

DINNER. Many people are under the impression that unless they are able to follow the conventional lines in which dinner parties are given it would be a social error to enter the lists. This deters a large number from entertaining in the modest manner that their incomes and house holds admit of, and which would be quite agreeable to their more wealthy acquaintances. To dine out frequently, and to offer no; return of a like nature, appears churlish when it is known that small dinners in accordance with the means at command might readily be given. Many ladies now, instead of monotonously adhering to the stereotyped "dinner," give small dinners in accordance with the capabili ties of their households, and within the limits of their restricted incomes. Everyone is more or less aware that in the matter of dinner giving it is the domestic question, including the serving and waiting at table, that bars the way to " smart" dinners,- rather than the actual cost of the. food required. . Thus t...

Home Notes. THE BEST WAY TO SLEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 22 September 1900

Horpe Notes* THE BEST WAY TO SLEEP. How many of all our sleeping millions who arise at sun call with more or less reluctance or promptness are free from morning head ache? Not a large proportion, so far as I have observed. It is probable that a major ity acquire their pain from wrong posture dur ing sleep. I have asked many how they lie in bed; I find generally they rest upon the side, with legs drawn up and chin drawn upon the chest-rolled up like a chicken in an eggshell. Some few sleep upon the back, one or two prone, and several with an arm stretched up beneath the head; but the usual posture is, I think, as first stated. Now, in this shape the human body de scribes an arc of a circle, with blood and air vessels constricted by pressure on the inside of the arc, and their calibre sensibly dimin ished, jugular veins returning exhausted blood from the brain find the flow of their contents interfered with, and a condition of passive congestion is set up. * Lungs, compressed by weigh...

THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY TO DISCOVER SOURCE OF TAINT. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 22 September 1900

if THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY TO DIS COVER SOURCE OF TAINT. Every cheesemaker knows how absolutely necessary it is to have clean and perfectly sweet milk for making cheese which he can guarantee will bring the top market price. The same thing is also true with the butter maker. The quality of the product is almost entirely within the maker's control when he U supplied with milk that is absolutely pure. This has long been known to be a fact, but it was only a few years ago that a test was devised by which we could discover which one of two lots of perfectly sweet milk contains the undesirable. bacteria that are responsible for certain defects in both butter and cheese. The test which is employed for this purpose is called the Wisconsin curd test, and it is one of die^b^st detectives there is for locating im pure milk. The process of cheesemaking has revealed the fact that curds from dirty milk do not have the firm, solid texture of those made from perfectly clean milk, and it has also be...
