BUSH HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 15 October 1900

BUSH HOUSE. Gloxinias, ,Achimenes, and Caiadiums will require a more liberal supply of water, as they are making growth and filling the pots with roots. Gloxinias do not like being watered over the foliage; they make better plants when the foliage is kept dry. Shelter the plants from wind, water freely at the roots, and shade slightly. This is a good month to propagate all soft wooded plants; prepare a light, moist corner for the laying down of foliage, begonia leaves, etc. Make the soil light with a good percentage of sand and leaf mould; leave 2 or 3 inches of the stalk on the leaf, and lay it flat on the soil; if the situaticm is suitable they will start to grow in a week's time. Keep the soil well stirred or forked around all plants. In the rockeries fill up all gaps, selecting the best of everything, dis carding useless varieties, which are apt to take full possession of the rockery. Re-pot all plants requiring a shift at once, as the season is now getting late for this work. C...

Field, Orchard and Garden. FLOWER GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 15 October 1900

Field, Orchard and Garden. (By MR. J AS. MITCHELL, Bowen Park.) FLOWER GARDEN. This should be a busy month in the flower garden, as flowers are in greater demand dur ing summer and autumn months. Chrysan themums should be seen to at once; have the ground thoroughly well prepared, and in dig ging put the manure well down; see that the ground JS well drained, and if blooms are wanted for show purposes, do not make the ground too rich in first preparing the soil. It is better to feed the plants after they have made their flowering buds. It is also advisable to get special varieties imported from time to time, as some of our very best varieties seem to deteriorate if we grow them in our own garden year after year. This has frequently been noticed with varieties such as William Tricker, Yellow Coronet, Charles Shea, Louis Boehmer, and many other good old varieties. To grow the chrysanthemum for ordinary pur poses such as making a show in the garden, or for cut flowers, dig in some well r...

Inspection of Piggeries. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 15 October 1900

Inspection of Piggeries. The sanitary condition of feeding stuff, and its fitness for producing healthy and nutritious material for human consumption in relation to pork, is a subject requiring far more atten tion, public and otherwise, than is bestowed upon it It is high time that the sanitary in spector's veto (an essentially veterinarian's office) was put on the noxious mess collected from various sources for the purpose of feeding swine and manufacturing so-called dairy-fed pork. The flavor of meat varies with the nature of the animal and its diet. It is repug nant to one's tastes and feelings to think that creatures bred and reared for the food of man should be daily supplied with the putrid, filthy contents of the household hogwash tub, seeth ing frequently with dangerous organisms, and invariably in a state of stench , and acid fer mentation.

The Greatest Need of Agriculture [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 15 October 1900

The Greatest Heed of Agriculture Minds differ as to what constitutes the most pressing want of Queensland farmers. A large number regard higher education and more knowledge about science as applied to farm ing as of the utmost consequence. Others be lieve in more protection or freer trade, Go vernment loans, light railways, reform of tax tion and the like. More attention to the aesthetic side of life, to making the home brighter, the family circle happier and rural society more attractive, are also urged as among the imperative needs of our farming communities. These and other means for im provement are all worthy of careful and im partial attention. But this journal believes that the pressing want among farmers to-day is more strict attention to what may be called the business side of their vocation. The wastes, ignorances and extravagances of any class of men will not be conected by legisla tion or reforms in taxes. Attention to the real business of farming implies, of course, pro...

Northern Queensland [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 15 October 1900

Northern Queensland Probably no part o£ Aus tralia is coming more to the front and attracting more attention than the far North of this colony. This is par ticularly applicable to Cairns, which is fast becoming a very important business and social centre. The comparatively recent develop ments of the Chillagoe and Herberton mining districts, and the access of money and popula tion to that portion of the colony has made Cairns a notable place. As a tourists' resort Cairns has long been known, and the beautiful scenery in the neighbourhood of the Barron Falls is a byword in Australia. The Ade laide Steamship Coy., with the idea of draw ing public attention to the beautiful trip up the coast and the scenery of the North, have lately commissioned the proprietors of this journal to write an illustrated guide on the Queensland coast line, as far North as Cairns, for their use. The Company afforded our commissioner every facility in his task, and the guide, which will be most profusely ill...

Black Duck's Nest. Photo. Mr. A. J. Campbell. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 15 October 1900

Black Duck's Nest. Photo. Mr. A. J. Campbell. The Black Duck (Anas superciliosus), whose nest is illustrated here, needs little de scription. Being good to eat and excellent sport for the gun, is probably the best known and most persecuted bird in Australia. He is found more or less over the whole of Aus tralia, in New Guinea, and various Pacific Islands. By day he mostly camps in lagoons, swamps, quiet rivers, or secluded creeks. At dusk he is on the move in all directions, for night is his real feeding time. He travels great dis tances, and it would be hard to say into what sort of places he does not go. Tn dry times I have disturbed him as he searches for food in the water table of a public road, under culverts, and in the smallest of small water holes. His close season around Moreton Bay and the Downs has been fixed from Sept. ist to March 31st, but I do not know a month of the year when he does not breed, providing there is plenty of rain. No rain for no matter how long, means ...

Traction Engines for the West. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 15 October 1900

Traction Engines for the West. One of our western contemporaries reports that in deference to the objections raised by the local teamsters, the committee formed for the purpose of establishing a carrying com pany, and importing a traction engine had been disbanded. We question if conservation in the worker class could go further or their opinion pandered to> in a greater degree. At tempts are made from time to time to prevent the camel carrying trade, but the latter, like also the traction engine, has a decided place in the trade of the colony, and will replace the slower bullock and horse team, and the unsatisfactory teamster. A lesson for the West is to be seen on the Darling Downs, where already are at work some eight or ten of Marshall and Co.'s Compound Traction En gines or Special Road Locomotrvfes. These are chiefly used for hauling and working threshing machines. Two more Tiave just been landed by Messrs. M'Lennan and Co., Alice Street, Brisbane, the Queensland agents, on...

AGRICULTURE PRODUCE MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 15 October 1900

PRODUCE MARKET. Although there has been a good supply of produce in the market during the month prices have been firm, A larger amount would have been forwarded by farmers on the Lockyer and the Downs if dry weather had not set in; but much is being held for higher prices. This we consider a mistake, for as soon as- the farm work is over, and which takes the atten tion of farmers at this time of the year, there will be a considerable amount of produce sent into market The wheat on the Downs, al though stunted in growth, is coming well into ear, and farmers expect good returns; much attention, however, is being turned to maize growing, and we expect next season to chronicle some record crops. The fruit mar ket has been under-supplied, strawberries hav ing gone almost out of the market, and other fruit? are in short supply. The following are the quotations: - Maize,-Prime, 3/7 to 3/7^d. per bushel; second quality, green and soft, 3/-. Potatoes.-Prime, 4/6 to 4/9 per cwt.; in ferior, 2...

Woman's World. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 15 October 1900

A dressmaker is not necessarily good be cause she " fits . well. Fit means that there is no unnecessary fulness or wrinkles, that the garment is just the right size and defines the figure properly. This may do very well for a perfectly formed figure, but as a matter of fact few of us have perfect figures, and we require style as well as fit. The figure that is defec tive should not be accurately fitted and cruelly exposed. The stylish dressmaker is she who, by a skilful cut and arrangement of drapery, conceals your physical defects. If your bust is too flat she will not have the world know the painful truth. If your waist is flatter than it should be she will contrive so that none but your dearest female friend will guess. If your neck is not swan-like she will not provide you with a fashionable ruff. The home dressmaker, by paying particular attention to style (with the above meaning), can often achieve more satisfactory results than the ordinary dressmaker, who is satisfied with a...
