FOODS FOR CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 8 November 1900

FOODS FOR CHILDREN. It is essential to the proper growth of chil dren that their food should be carefully chosen and well cooked. Underdone meat is good for the little one: it should be beef, mutton, or perhaps chicken. Roasted meats are most easily assimilated, Pork^ Veal, [ham, liver, and kidneys are quite unfit for children's food. Warm milk, sago, tapioca, and oatmeal arc excellent foods, as are stewed beans, peas, celery, cauliflower, and tomatoes. Potatoes should be given sparingly, and not at all if there is any tendency to flatulence or indiges tion. Stewed fruit should form part of one meal every day, care being taken that it is ripe and sound. Apples, pears, rhubarb, rasp berries, and blackberries are all good, and may be given either stewed or raw. Brown bread and butter with honey is generally appreciatad. Hot milk is an excellent skin food, and many women ascribe their youthful-looking complex ions to the use of hot milk, with which they bathe their faces night and morn...

Woman's World. THE AFTERNOON NAP. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 8 November 1900

lilomoFi'g l&0rfd. THE AFTERNOON NAP. The frequency with which medical men are asked whether it is harmful to indulge in the " afternoon nap" is not, perhaps, surprisng, for several reasons. Most persons have had experience of the seductive charms of the somnolence which has followed the comfortable digestion of a midday or evening meal. The meal finished, the diner arranges himself com fortably in an armchair; it may be he lignls a pipe or cigar, takes up a newspaper, and pre pares to make the most of the restful conditions of his mind and body. But Nature soon begins to assert her sway. In time, the eyelids close, the head begins to nod, the newspaper falls from his hands, the pipe, no longer supported in the mouth, falls to the floor, and the symp toms of a nap are complete. Whether the " winks" be 40 or 100 in num ber, the result is the same-a short, sound sleep. Then comes the question, Is it harmful thus to fall asleep after a meal? By ho means; for the very obvious re...

Woodford and Hopetown Districts. (Our Own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 8 November 1900

II Woodford and Hopetonn Districts. (Our Own Correspondent.) Why the Government axe so slow in pur chasing the Durundur Estates and making a start with the Caboolture-Woodford Railway is hard to understand, seeing that there is ample guarantee that both projects would be attended with a strong measure of success, and would greatly advance the best interests of these already flourishing districts. Messrs. Brown, Green, and Hancock have three large saw-mills in full work, and are unable to get teams to haul the sawn timber away quickly enough; whilst a large number of teams are constantly on the road loaded exclusively with log timber. The timber traffic alone would support a line to Woodford without taking into account the large farming, grazing, and dairying settlements throughout the surround ing districts. There is a very good demand for land in all these settled districts, and seve ral sales at good prices have been effected lately. The time is not far distant when the Government...

Home Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 8 November 1900

The coming of baby's fust tooth is heralded as a great event-which it really is; yet mamma may be astonished when we advise her that the day after this tooth makes its ap pearance is not too soon to commence the regular cleaning, which she must persistently continue until the child itself is old enough to realise the value of its " mouth jewels." If neglected, the temporary teeth may be lost before the little jaw has grown sufficiently to accommodate the larger teeth of the permanent set, and an unsightly crowding will result-a condition which is also very conducive to decay. The shape of the nose, lips, and mouth, and the quality of the voice are directly affected by the character and position of the teeth, and defects due to the premature loss of the tem porary teeth are often sadly apparent in later life. Many lines and wrinkles, detracting from the beauty of the face, may be traced to tooth ache-which is only another name for tooth neglect. When the toothache signal is sounded i...

RECIPES. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 8 November 1900

RECIPES. This is the way to make orange snowballs. Boil some rice for ten minutes, then drain, spread it when cool on some dumpling cloths. Remove all the rind and white pith of some oranges without tearing the skin. Tie each orange, well covered with rice, in a separate cloth, and boil for an hour. Turn them out carefully, pour sweet sauce round, and.: serve hot. Potted Beef.-Ingredients : The remains of cold roast or boiled beef, quarter-pound butter, cayenne to taste, two blades pounded mace. Mode: Cut the meat into small pieces, and place it in the mincing machine; add the but ter, cayenne, and mace, reducing the latter in gredient to the finest powder. When the in gredients are thoroughly mixed, put into glass or earthen potting pots, and pour on the top a coating of clarified butter. If cold roast beef is used, remove all pieces of gristle and dry outside pieces. The butter will only be re quired to be mixed with the mince if the meat is entirely lean. Liver and Bacon.-Ingredi...

FRUIT GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 17 December 1900

FRUIT GARDEN. Keep the ground clean and free from weeds. Pick up all fallen oir diseased fruit, and kill the larva or eggs of as many insect pests as possible. If ducks or fowls are kept in the orchard for the purpose, see that no affected fruit is left hanging on. the frees where the fowls cannot reach it. Pigs are the best scavengers when they can be let run; however, the best plan is to pick up all fallen fruit, and boil or bury it, or feed the pigs with it. All bearing citrus trees will be bene fitted by giving them a good supply of manure; decayed sea-weed makes a splendid mulch for the orange tree. Feed the trees and keep them in healthy growth, and there will be no difficulty in keeping them clean. Keep strawberry beds well forked, mulched, and watered to encourage runners. Do not let young trees: grow out of shape, or make wood which will all have to* be cut off during season. Pinch now, and work the trees into shape. Flour of sulphur should be used freely where oidium is ma...

Field, Orchard and Garifen. FLOWER GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 17 December 1900

Field, Orchard and Garifen. (BY MR. JAS. MITCHELL, Bowen Park.) FLOWER GARDEN. Cleanliness should prevail in every corner of the garden at this season of the year. If flowers are scarce, cut the edges of beds and walks, tie up all plants requiring stalks, such as Dahlias, Chrysanthemums, Sunflowers, and late flowering Gladiolus. Fork and trim up flower beds, and make up all vacant spaces with summer annuals, such as zinnias, cosmos, celosia, amarantus, etc. Put in cuttings of coleus and chrysanthemum plants to> make a show during April and May. Keep the ground well watered and mulched with stable manure. Flowers cannot be well grown where too1 much under the influence of large trees. If trees are grown over the beds, and if good flowers are expected, cut down the trees or shire the beds from under their influence. Fig roots will run a long distance to get into a nice, well-worked and manured bed. If roots are found in the beds, run a trench at right angles between the trees and b...

Notes Month. A Retrospect. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 17 December 1900

A Retrospect. In many ways the last year of the century has been one of the most important in the history of Queensland, so soon to pass from the position of a self-governing colony to the dignity of a state in what one day will un doubtedly be a mighty confederation. When the year opened the South African war was raging in all the bitterness of its first intensity, and repeated British reverses, in spite of the gallantry of the troops, overshadowed the whole of the Empire with gloom. Two Queensland contingents were already at the front, or on their way there, and these were followed in quick succession, by two more, and if it had been necessary, such was the military enthusiasm of the people, still further drafts from our small population would have been despatched to shed their blood if necessary for the mother country. The magnificent ob ject-lesson, given to an astonished world, of the unity and strength of the British Empire, is one which future historians will love to dwell on...

The Captain's Gold. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 17 December 1900

The Captain's Gold. (BY MARY TRACY EARLE.) AUI> LADNIER walked from end to end of the Old Captain's place. It had been his home, his father's home, and his grandfather's. His grandfather had been the "Old Captain" whose name clung to.; it ? he had owned a fleet of- coasting schooners trad ing with New Orleans, and had been a rich man, but that was long ago. Since his time the family had grown poorer and poorer, smaller and smaller. Now there was only Paul left, and he was bidding the old place good-bye. He closed the house, locked the front door, drew his soft hat over his eyes, and started down the path towards the pier. A girl had tied her boat at the pierhead and was coming up the path. He pulled his hat off and hur ried to meet her. "I was just going across to the village, Miss French, to give the keys to your mother," he said." , "I didn't come to see about them," she answered. She looked at him silently, half smiling,. yet half-doubtful of her errand. "I thought you might b...

"HOOKS" IN A COW'S EYES. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 17 December 1900

" HOOKS " IN A COW'S EYES. The membrane at the inner corner of a cow's eye, which is called the " haw," serves to sweep away from the surface of the eyeball any dirt or foreign matters which may lodge upon it. It is a cartilaginous or gristly substancer and is embedded in fat which surrounds the back of the; eyeball. It sometimes becomes inflamed and swollen, and is then supposed t<y be something which should not be there, and a symptom of a disease which is called the "hooks." Sometimes people cut out these swollen parts, to get rid of them, instead of reducing the inflammation by cooling washes and medicine. When removed, the inflamma tion spreads to the contiguous parts, which swell and sometimes force the eye out of the socket. The pain and distress of the animal are great, and rapidly reduce its condition, as in your case. Bathe the eye very frequently in a mixture of four ounces of laudanum in a quart of soft water, and hang a cloth soaked in the liquid so* that it ...

TOT1 The chief point of interest however to a visitor is the famous rail way line which runs from the railway station near the town, out over the ranges past the famous Barron River Falls to Chillagoe with its wonderful Copper Mines and Limestone Caves. After the first, three miles of sandy country, the line passes through a portion of the rich agricultural land adjacent to the Barron River ; and fields of rice, and maize, are seen as Strathford is passed. At Redlynch a large saw mill is seen, working on the enormous logs of timber for which the adjacent scrubs are famous. The Government State Nursery is to the right at Kuranda and is in every way worthy of a visit. The Nursery contains a splendid collection of North Queensland and New Guinea growths, as well as economical plants and or chids from vari ous parts of the globe. Here the line enters the vast scrub which extending for hundreds of square miles, covers the adja cent mountains with tropical ver ...
