Queensland Sheep Statistics. Effects of the Drought. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 January 1901

Queensland Sheep Statistics. Effects of the Drought In the debate on the Conservation of Water in the West, which took place in the Assem bly early in the month, on Mr. Kates' motion, some interesting statistics as to sheep were given showing the fluctuations caused by drought, and the terrible loss this season. In his speech Mr. Kates said:-"I was ini communication with the Chief Inspector of Stock, Mr. Gordon, and I asked him to be good enough to give me the stock returns for this colony-not up to the end of last year, but to a much later date, and he has supplied them up to the ist of last month. He says that in 1892 we had 21,708,310 sheep in this colony, and he thiiiks that now the number has shrunk to 9,000,000, and! I believe that both cattle and sheep are still dying in the West on account of the drought. He tells us that in the year 1870 we had 8,100,000 sheep ; in 1871 there were 7,493,060 ; in 1872 there were 6,600,000. Those were three years of drought When the drought b...

PASTORAL Stock and Station. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 January 1901

Stock and Station. Although there has been a considerable drop in the prices of stock, the leading pastoralists consider this but a temporary fall, and thai prices will recover again. The rain in many parts will no doubt be the saving of thousands of head of stock, but as large numbers will have to be purchased to make a fresh start on a number of holdings, both large and small, the demand for stock will continue for some con siderable time. How awful the drought has been is evidenced by the figures printed. else where in this issue. Next month we hope ro publish sworn particulars of losses on 100 sta tions in the interior during the past year. May the coming year bring more hope to our pas toral industry.

Their wares, which were so much admired in the London Exhibition!, also command the greatest admiration locally, and the public are now becoming alive to the fact that artistic work and low pftces go hand in hand with this firm, who explain that it is caused by their work ing all materials from the raw state, thus avoid ing the payment of middlemen's profits and high duties They consequently can and do sell their high-class wares at lower prices than they themselves would have to pay for them in the markets of England. The wares of this firm are noted for their high-class character, nothing inferior being made or sold by them; at the same time would be purchasers can obtain article...

Preserving Fence Posts. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 January 1901

// Preserving Fence Posts. The lime treatment is as good as any, and the cheapest. The only effect of an antisep tic for preserving timber is to remove the acids of the wood, and to fill the cells with an inde^ struetible mineral deposit, thus preventing de cay (says "H.S." in "Rural New Yorker"). After much practice with the various timber preser vatives for use in such special cases as in mines and for bridges, I have not learned of any ma terial better than common lime. It has been found so effective in this way that ships are now in existence and seaworthy ini every way which are over a century old, and have been all that time carrying lime as their principal cargoes.' Timber has been founds in ancient buildings, perfectly sound a^ter centuries of burial in lime or cement mortar. From some experience1, I am satisfied that the lime treatment, simple said cheap as it is, is equally effective as the various other treatments by much more expensive ma terials, My method has been to s...

Canal Communication Between Queensland and S. Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 January 1901

Canal Communication Between Queens land and S. Australia. The continued drought in the far west brings to our recollection a scheme which many years ago was elaborated! by the then Commissoner for Crown Lands, Mr. G. C. Watson* for supply ing that portion of the country lying south of Springsure and east of Charleville as far as Dalby wthi a system of navigable canals com municating with the Condamine, Balonne, Dar ling, and .Murray Rivers, thus placing: some of the inland- townsi in direct communication with the sea at Adelaide. In would appear that there is actually very little in the way of engineering diffiulties to be encountered in the1 work, which, if we recollect rightly, Mr; Watson set down to cost about a. million pounds. The advantages he claimed for his proposal were not alone those arising from cheap water' carriage, but the great probability of a stream of water so many miles in length, and never drying up,as; so many of the rivers do in that region. Trees would then b...

SMUT IN WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 January 1901

SMUT IN WHEAT. Smut in wheat (Ustilago segetum) is. a para sitic fungus of a low degree, belonging to the natural order Ustilagineos. The spores, which answer the place of seeds in higher orders of plants, are in the form, of a minute black dust, and' these are scattered over the field, in the grass, straw, chaif., also. .adhering to the sound grain after it is gathered, and may be sown with it the following year; and when conditions are favourable these smut-spores gemiiiiate, their threads penetrating all parts, of the growing plant and ultimately producing smutty wheat again. Smutty grain may appear in dry as well v as in wet seasons, aind the abundance of ^smut in the wheat fields of a locality may be due to the continuous cropping of particular fields $ith wheat, oats, or some closely-allied grain. To prevent smut a system of rotation of crops should be adopted, and the seed wheat be soaked for a few hours in a solution of sulphate of copper, or in a weak brine made with com mo...

ALLAN AND STARK [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 January 1901

ALLAN AND STARK January is essentially a month of sales. Every draper in the metropolis takes a part, and some of them re-mark their entire stock to lighten the task of stock-taking and make room for the fresh goods coming to hand for the autumn and winter. In the costume department at Allan and Stark's the values are unprecedented. Pique coats and skirts, the latter in the new shaped flounce, reduced from 19/6 to 12/6, and from 30/- to 21/-, and holland costumes 18/ir to 10/6. There are very special values in silk blouses; 21/- blouses for 12/6, 17/11 for 10/6. These are this season's goods, new and fresh, and can be highly recommended for style and quality. A line of mantles in silk and lace at 6/n and 8/ir are simply given away* at those prices. In underclothing, the reductions are very great. For instance, chemises are reduced from 6/n to 3/11, 5/11 to 2/11; underskirts in silk, from 21/- to 14/6. White skirts, lace trimmed, are priced from 4/11 up to 35/-. The lawn lace and emb...

FEEDING COWS FOR MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 January 1901

FEEDING COWS FOR MILK. In feeding cows for milk it is desirable to induce the largest digestion possible, as the more food consumed the more milk produced. Of course there is a limit to profitable meal feeding, and this is determined by the effect upon the animal's health. When more is fed than1 can be digested, the undigested meal pro duces "scouring," but if it perfectly digested such a result need not be feared. More meal may be given mixed with coarse feed than when fed alone. A good way is to mix meal and sliced or pulped roots. All food that digests slowly or imperfectly is better for being cooked or steamed. Rapid Views in Northern Queensland. and perfect digestion is all important to> milk ing cows, the more food consumed and nutri ment obtained, the more milk, or flesh and fat will result. No animal can give much milk or fatten on food that the stomach has to la bour long and hardly with to diigest. A cow cannot digest straw enough to keep life going, and yet one pound o...

The Dairy. PROPERTIES OF MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 January 1901

PROPERTIES OF MILK. The specific gravity of milk varies from about 1.025 to 1.032. The specific gravity of cream does not rise above 0.98, and hence the reason why cream rises to the surface when new milk is allowed to stand. Red milk is due either to injurious sub stances in the food, or to bleeding in the udder. Such milk has a bad taste, but is not injurious to human beings. It is, however, unfit for cheese making. Blue milk is caused by the cow eating certain weeds or getting indigestion from bad food. Change the diet. Bitter milk is a result of want of cleaplinbss and badt sanitary arrangements, develops . dirty-looking patches and gives Woft, badly flavoured butter. Bitterness '4 may also; be caused by the presence of certain we^ds in^ pas tures. " '? "V; . /.\, ; . Watery milk may be due to watery and frozen foods, such as turnips in winter. J '/ Sleepy milk produces cream very difficult to churn.- It may be due to want?oPcleanliness, ill-health of the cow, etc.; but sleepine...

CURING BACON AND HAMS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 February 1901

CURING BACON AND HAMS. To each score of pork allow iolb. of common salt, half-ounce of saltpetre, half-ounce of sal prunella, half-ounce of bay salt, and iflb. of brown sugar, 20 bay leaves, a sprig of marjoram, lemon thyme, and winter savoury. Put this mix ture into as much cold water as you think will cover the hams and pork you wish to pickle. Let it boil for 15 minutes; skim it if any scum rises. When quite cold pour it over the meat, which must be kept covered with the brine. At the end of each week it must be drawn off and boiled up, leaving it as at first to get quite cold before pouring it over the meat. Three weeks will be quite long enough for the meat to remain in the pickle, unless the hams are extra large; in that case give them another week or ten days. // An association to advance the interest of the farming community has been formed at Glifton, Darling Downs. The first president is Mr. John Logan, Clifton; Mr. P. J. Dalton, treasurer; and Mr. P. J. McCauley, secretar...

A NOVEL SYSTEM OF PROFIT SHARING IN FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 February 1901

A NOVEL SYSTEM OF PROFIT SHARING IN FARMING. Among the many peculiar systems of land tenure in vogue on the Continent, one of the most notable is that known as Metayer. Under this system the landlord supplies the buildings* the live stock, and the principal implements used upon the farm (such as ploughs, carts, etc.), and, during the first year of occupation, he also provides the necessary see;ds and manures. As a return for this the farmer sup plies him with one half the crops obtained, one half , the number of calves bred, and an/.allow ance of one ham or one side from each pig that is killed. Curiously enough, the poultry are the only animals in the farm in which the landlord and tenant do not enjoy share and share alike. In some districts the birds belong entirely to the tenant, and in others, where a fixed number of birds are kept together, a proportionate number of eggs are allowed to the landlord. Mr. J. R. Martin, Cawdor.

G'reat difficulty is often experienced in getting young pigs specially fed for show pur poses to subsequently breed, and it is also the same way with boars. It is usually found ne cessary in order to obtain good results with young boars specially fed for show purposes, to- first work them down very considerably in condition before using them to* any extent with sows.
