The Dairy. NECESSARY CONDITION TO OBTAIN PURE MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 15 October 1900

NECESSARY CONDITION TO OBTAIN PURE MILK. Healthy animals. Sound feed. Good drainage so that the surrounding soil be not permeative with urine and manure, creating offensive smell, and it will also prove good economy - to save these valuable fer tilizers either by draining to a tank or by using sufficient absorbents in the shed. The shed should be fairly warm and free from draughts, as cows shivering in the shed or the field, produce milk from which fine butter can not be made. There should be light, as that is a great pre ventive for many diseases. There should be effective ventilation wun out draft. The shed should be white-washed twice a year (in sanitary dairies this is done once a month). It is very little work if a spray pump is used. The place from which the water is taken for the cows to drink, and in which milk pails and cans are washed, should be located so as to make it impossible for any surface water or drainage to get into it. No water should ever be used for these purp...

Home Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 15 October 1900

" A playing bag in the nursery will do much towards teaching the little ones habits of order. It serves for the reception of balls, marbles, and the countless small odds and ends, empty reels, etc., that contribute to the children's amusement ; and hung up within their reach, they must be taught to drop their toys into it instead of leaving them in odd corners and. about the floor, whence they will be ruthlessly banished by the angry nursemaid who is clean ing the room for the " hundredth time to-day. This will prevent their being cried for as lost by their owners. Half a yard of strong col oured linen, about a yard wide, will make a bag sufficiently large. Line it with strong silesia, and run in drawing strings about lour inches from the top, leaving it easier to put things in." HINTS TO MOTHERS. It devolves upon the house-mother herself, in the absence of other trusted persons, to see that all food is properly cared for when it is removed from the table. Pieces of meat should be p...

The Daniels' Settlement. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 15 October 1900

The Daniels' Settlement. It was in 1861 that Mr. Daniels first settled on the Darling Downs with his family, and continued there until within the last five years. During this period the different branches of the family went on budding and spreading, when, being too closely confined and wishing to keep together, it became necessary to look about for pastures new. After several en quiries in different districts they at last pitched their home at Gindie, a resumed portion of Fairleigh Downs on the opposite side of the line to which the Gindie State farm is situated. The total number of Daniels, including child ren, grandchildren, and great grandchildren, number something like 60, so that they form Landsborough. Mooloolah Railway Bridge.

The Blackall Range. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 15 October 1900

The Blackall Range. Some months ago in dealing with the More ton Electorate a short account of the wonder ful scrub-covered Blackall Range was inT eluded.. That article dealt cursorily with the district and its future possibilities. . A trip through the range in the early spring time, when the bees were in the flowers, "the flowers upon the trees-and the sunlit leaves were glistening over all," was taken by the writer with the view of learning something of the strawberry and other industries on the range. Landsborough was our starting point. My promised guide, counsellor, and friend had a small opinion of my early rising capa bilities, for it was ten o'clock before he made his appearance, but in a short time we were in the saddle. Landsborough is 51 miles from Brisbane, on the North Coast Railway Line. We had arrived there the previous night, put ting up at Dyer's comfortable Mellum Club Hotel. Our host, who is well known in the Roma district, gave us every courtesy, even to the loa...

MAY BABY SUCK HIS THUMB? [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 15 October 1900

MAY BABY SUCK HIS THUMB? When baby is cutting his teeth he, will, if left to himself, suck his thumb. There is no better " baby comforter" in the world than his own little thumb. It is better than any of the patent devices sdlcl for the purpose, it being of the right size, the right hardness, and firmly attached to the tiny hand so that there is no fear of its being swallowed. Then again, it has another advantage over artificial substi tutes-it is much cleaner, for nurse is sure to wash the baby's little hands several times, in the day, and it is quite likely that she may entirely forget to wash his " pipe," as she calls it. The sucking of the thumb causes a,flow of saliva, which relieves thirst and aids diges tion. The pressure of the thumb eases the irritation and pain of the gums while the teeth are growing, and finally it helps to bring them through the gums. Sucking the thumb will often make a child leave off crying, and fall into a peaceful and refreshing sleep. It may be indu...

Summer Pruning. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 15 October 1900

Summer Pruning. " Orchardist.") Although many of the older and more ex perienced orchardists systematically summer prune their fruit trees, there are many others, judging from inquiries made, who never regu late their, tree growths from one winter prun ing to another. The advantages to be gained by summer pruning most deciduous fruit trees are many, but, speaking generally, these, se :in to be either imperfectly understood, or very little practised by many growers. When the operation is judiciously performed, the vigor of the whole, or any particular part, can be reduced or limited without impairing the con stitution of the trees, and the balance between the upper and lower branches can be main tained to a nicety. Moreover, when fruit trees are properly summer pruned during the first few years after planting, it not only conduces to their longevity and the formation of sym metrical heads, but to the early development of fruit-bearing spurs on such trees as apples, pears, plums, apri...

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

Country Shouts. The Rosewood show was in many ways a distinct disappointment, and we strongly en dorse the opinion expressed by Mr. W. D. Armstrong, M.L.A., at the luncheon that it would be more to the benefit of the societies if an annual show was held under the joint auspices of the several associations of West Moreton. The weather was splendid, and the attendance, which included some 20 members of Parliament, was exceptionally large, upwards of £105 being taken at the gates. In the ab sence of the Hon. Robert Philp, Mrs. Philp, in a neat and appropriate speech, formally opened the Show, and wished prosperity to the Rosewood district. Upwards of 150 sat down to the excellent luncheon provided. The usual toasts were honoured in an enthusiastic manner. In the exhibits the horse and cattle sections were excellent, but the produce had but few entries. Those that were shown, how ever, were excellent in every way, and gave an idea of the capabilities of the rich loam of the Rosewood dis...

Mount Britten Goldfield [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 8 November 1900

Mount Britten Goldfield BY GRAPHITE. The diggings are very prettily situated on the centre of a horse-shoe formed by a spur running out of the main range on to the plains. A heavily timbered creek, running up the centre of the valley, was where the gold was found first. Vast ranges of mountains rise up all round, the slopes of which are covered with forests of gigantic trees, and patches of dense scrub. The summit of the range is formed by a crown of cliffs, which rise sheer from the slopes below to a height* varying from 400 to 1,000 feet, the red and yellow tints of the rocks contrasting beautifully with the sombre mass of dark green woods below them. Three very startling peaks, known as the Marlingspikes, guard the entrance to the valley, bare sugar-loaves of weather-beaten grey rock, quite detached from the main range, which rise right out of the surrounding country to a height of 1,700 feet, and form a glorious land mark over miles and miles of the adjacent plains. The first ti...

Callide Creek Coal Fields. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 8 November 1900

Callide Creek Coal Fields. N 1890 a party of prospectors (Messrs. Petersen, Otty, and Dunn), subsidised by the Government, when sinking a shaft in search of alluvial gold near Callide Creek, some 52 miles in a direct line S.W. of Glad stone, and about 3 miles N.W. of old Callide Station, came upon sand stone followed by. thick seams of coal. But only quite lately has it been prominently under public notice. Some six months ago a party set off from Gladstone on a five days' trip to visit the locality, which is not less by road than 70 miles from Gladstone, where these wonderful deposits of coal were alleged to exist. Owing to two ranges of hills having to be crossed the journey was a hard one. It was soon recognised that those ranges would be found formidable barriers to railway access should the coal measures be found as extensive they had been reputed to be. The first 45 miles of the road presented no engineering difficulties, but the next ten miles led over rugged country that was...

Past, Present and Future of the Queensland Defence Force. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 8 November 1900

Past, Present and Future of the Queensland Defence Force. "*. . - . - The past is wrapped in a large measure of obscurity. The first military organisation was formed in the early sixties,, and the arms and accoutrements of that day would make the smart Defence Force man of the present smile. Speaking of Brisbane only-to which the writer's experience is limited-the armoury con tained a most heterogenous collection of fire arms. The weapons used for shooting at the butts were Snider rifles, but for drill purposes the most common firelock was the old "Tower" musket, sometimes called " Brown Bess." These were the weapons of Wellington's days, and were excellent at short range--especially when used as a club! The Terry breechloader was also in evidence, but was seldom used. Some of the men were the fortunate possessors of sword bayonets, some had the short triangular bayonet, and most had no bayonet at all. The clothing was also of a somewhat nondescript character. Generally the recruit ...
