DISEASES OF POULTRY. M. B. KEECH. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 17 December 1900

DISEASES OF POULTRY. M. B. KEECH. Tf i.1 r ? I I_ J : If the young fowls are busy and scratching, it is the sign of health ; but if they are stupid, drowsy, and continually " crying/' something is wrong. Watch the fowl closely and as soon as a fowl appears sick, doctor it at once or the disease may spread. Much time and labor are required to treat a whole flock. Re member it is a waste of effort to, attempt to cure any disease without first removing the cause. Medicine should never be needed about a well-managed poultry yard. But poultry raisers who do not use preventatives must have cures. Turkeys are subject to all the diseases that affect chickens. Ducks never have cholera, roup nor gapes. BOWEL DISEASE. The bowels are the most sensitive part of a fowl, getting out of order without apparent cause. If any signs of bowel disease appear, and you are sure the fowl has not been chilled and is free of lice, the cause must be due to error in feeding or the drinking water is not fresh an...

COASTING NORTHWARD The Queensland Coast from Brisbane to Port Douglas. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 17 December 1900

The Queensland Coast from Brisbane to Port Douglas. coast line of Queensland extends north and south for ? SV upwards of 2,250 miles, stretching from Point Danger in the south temperate zone to the tropic seas which beat on the beautiful islands of the pearl strewn waters of Torres Straits, and round by the Gulf of Carpentaria to the boundary line of this colony and South Australia. Few are the harbours on this long line of shore, and the rivers are of no great magnitude, but Nature in her whimful mood saw, as it were, no need for harbours of refuge in this quiet sea where storms break so seldom. But, for the protection of the shores, against the beating waves of the Pacific Ocean, she has built up a line of reef and island which, sentinel-like, stands out along almost the whole length of the coast. " Thick clustered beauties-as though the hand had brought Earth's fairest fragments to the common spot; Or Nature's richest chest of jewels rare Perchance had fallen, burst and scattered...

CONCERNING SWINE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 17 December 1900

Besides Sw Out for a Holiday with a Camera, Etc. the liability of disease getting among them, there is always a certainty that the stronger will crowd the weaker from their feeding places, so that the inequality in size will in crease instead of decrease. In every litter there are always one or two weaklings that were born runts, and unless given a better chance than their fellows they will always re main runts. The best way to< manage this is when the pigs are seven or eight weeks old, take out the stronger ones and wean them, giving them plenty of the best food that can be got to make growth. Then the runts left to suckle the sow alone will in two or three weeks mare take a start that may make them as good "as the others, so that in later life all can be fed together. No other feed without the sow's milk will do this, though su...

Blackall Range.—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 17 December 1900

Blackall Range.-Continued. HE next morning saw me at Njlii bour, x 4 miles from Landsborough, on my way to Mapleto-n, Dulong, and Mountville, or Razorback-on the summit of the range, which is clearly visible from the hotel. After a tour through the More ton Central Sugar Mill, Nambour, under the guidance of the manager, Mr. Malcolm, I took my way towards Mapletons on a horse lent me by the genial host of the hotel, Mr. Price, well known in connection with dredge work on the Burnett River. Two miles from Nambour, I saw set back in the clearing of the heavy forest the remains of old Nambour House, one time the -property of Lawrence Cusack, but now in ruins; and a mile beyond I reached " Campsie Glen," the residence of Mr. Stark, farmer and timber getter, whose farm land, planted with maize, lay green in the valley below the ridge on which I was travelling. A little beyond is the present terminus of the tramway connecting with the Nambour Central Mill. That it is of little use to the s...

Poultry. J. HENDERSON. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 17 December 1900

J. HENDERSON. Of course, the very essence of making poul try keeping popular is to provide birds, etc., which may be adapted to the , needs of those who, because they have little room and time, and sometimes experience, want an easy system of poultry keeping, and brown Leghorns, with their extraordinary laying qualities, are just the birds for this purpose, so far as egg pro duction is concerned, and as a non-sitting breed. Then, again, a good many Game breeders fancy brown Leghorns because they are the same colour as the black-breasted red Game, and some of those much admire them because they think they look " gamey," and this secures for brown Leghorns a certain patronage. When kept in confined runs they are valuable, because they do> not show the dirt, and so look nice, where the white ones would present a most miserable appearance, and so they are chosen by many who like a nice-looking, sprightly fowl that produces plenty of eggs. The brown Leghorn chickens are very hardy, fe...

MAPLETON TO RAZORBACK. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 17 December 1900

11 MAPLETON TO RAZORBACK. While the lowlands were still covered with the mists of the night, and little was to be seen of the sea, except as a haze in the far distance, I took my way southward along the main track which, passing through belts of scrub and homestead clearings, goes from Mapleton to Razorback, a distance of about eight miles. This track is fairly level and keeps well to the edge of the range the whole way, giving oc casional vistas of distant forest and sea, framed in a near by border of scrub and bramble. Past the school house and Mr. Rosser's resi dence are one or two cottages on either side of the road and beyond here, Mr. Johnston's farm, a holding of 82 acres, of which 30 acres are cleared and under crop. Upwards of 45,000 strawberry plants are in full bearing, and a grove of bananas surround the house, chiefly of the sugar and ladies' finger varieties, while a number of orange trees are coming into1 full bearing.

Woman's World. HEADGEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 17 December 1900

iCeman's I&erfd. HEADGEAR. The utter indifference with which the fre quently raised objection to the large headgear often worn by ladies at the theatre and other places of public amusement is treated, recalls the complaint of Louis XIV. at another of fashion's exacting decrees: -"I candidly own I am annoyed," said he, one day, "to find that, with all my kingly authority, I have been crying in vain against those extravagantly high structures on women's heads. Not a single person has felt inclined to make them lower in deference to me. But all at once there appears on the scene a stranger, a bit of rubbish (une guenille) from England, who wears her hair low upon her head, and sud denly all the princesses go from one extreme to the other." The "bit of rubbish'' happened to be Lady Sandwich, the wife of the British Ambassador. Cannot something be done to alter the senseless fashion of spending the honeymoon at the hotels of fashionable watering places or in touring in discomfort...

A VERANDA PARTY. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 January 1901

A VERANDA PARTY. The bride had made up her mind to give a party. She was a very new bride, and her house furnishings, her china and silver and pretty napery were new, too. She would never have a better chance to show her friends how sweet and dainty and fresh her little home was than now. The only trouble about the party was that the bride had more friends she wished to invite than she had room to accommodate or money to entertain. Her home was a pretty cottage, and her small drawing-room and mtodest dining room,^though full large for two young people and a few friends, would be close quarters for the twenty or thirty guests who were to be askedi. But the bride was a young woman with wits, and she put them to work with such vigor that they soon hit upoo a plan. To what better use could be put the wide veranda that ran around two corners of the house than to make it help give the* party ? The bride had but one maid servant and that one was not specially skilled, but she had plenty of...

She looked up at me yesterday, And -smiled a heavenly smile; I took her little hands in mine, And held them theife awhile. I said the sweetest words that I Could conjure up, but she, Though smiling coyly, sweetly, still Gave no reply to me. At last I dropped her little hands; She ceased to smile, and then, Half turning in her tiny crib, She went to sleep again.

lilemem's llJ©rM. Two Englishmen will shortly arrive in Aus tralia as the result of a bet. In a London Club one night the conversation turned upon a Aus tralian brides/' and these two announced their intention of coming to Sydney to seek a wife each. The listeners doubted the statement, and offered to bet that the undertaking would not come off. The intending visitors took the bet, and have quite determined to< marry Aus tralian women. Both are titled, and one is very wealthy. In true romantic fashion, they have decidied' to live together in Sydney, and not let it be known which of the two is rich and which poor. One is very handsome, the other plain. The next Sydney winter is to be known as a " white winter." Tliis does not refer to snow in the air, or morals on thie earth, but merely to women's clothes. White garments, in thick, warm materials, are certainly veiy charming; but they are not being talked of on account of their beauty, but because whiifje is known to be il...
