Notes of the Month. The Late Queen and Empress. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 February 1901

The Late Queen and Empress. Since the last issue of this journal it becomes our painful duty to an nounce the demise of Her Most Gracious Majesty, Queen Victoria, which occurred after a short illness, on the 22nd day of January last, at Osborne, in the Isle of Wight, England. It would require too much space in our columns to enumerate in detail the splendid qualities and sterling character of our late Queen, but we can not allow this great national event to pass with out a few remarks on some of the most notable events of her long and glorious reign, the history of which is the greatest epoch in British history. Born on the 24th of May, 1819, she ascended the throne on June 20th, 1837, and with the exception of the King of Denmark, was the oldest reigning sovereign. She was by proclamation on January 1st, 1877, made Em press of India. Her Majesty outlived all the members of the House of Lords who1 were Peers of the Realm at the time of her accession, ex cepting the Earl of Darnley a...

The Tick Regulations. (THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 February 1901

II The Tick Regulations. (THE EDITOR.) The general opinion of those who have given close consideration to the subject is that the losses occasioned by the mortality in cattle from ticks is small compared with the losses caused to the industiy by the restrictions which have prevented cattle owners in the Northern and Central Districts from taking advantage of the markets in Southern Queensland and New South Wales. Independently of these restric tions which virtually place an embargo on cattle traffic from Northern and Central Queensland southwards, the restrictions on the movement of stock within the unaffected portions of South ern Queensland have proved so harassing, at, it is understood, the dictation of New South Wales, that many owners elect to suffer the loss of a profitable market for their stock rather than submit to the many petty annoyances imposed on their movement. It has been stated that the head of the Stock, Bureau in America, who' has a much more lengthened experience...

BOTANICAL GARDENS, TOOWOOMBA. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 February 1901

BOTANICAL GARDENS, TOOWOOMBA. The Botanical Gardens, in area i jl .acres, and the Queen's Park adjoining, of 64 acres (40 acres of which are planted), are situated be tween Margaret and Campbell streets* on the east of Ruthven street. Entrance is to be had near the Post Office in Margaret street and Arthur street and opposite the Royal Agri cultural Society's grounds in Campbell street. There are upwards of 11 acres brought under cultivation in the Gardens, which at all times and seasons is one of the most pleasant spots of Toowoomba to visit, and speaks highly for the ability of the curator, Mr. R. R. Harding. Previously the land was utilised as an Experi mental Farm, fruit trees and vegetables being the only plants in evidence, but this has been altered, and beautiful avenues of trees line well kept walks, which, broken by beds of rich coloured flowers and flanked by banks of emerald-hued grass and lines of shrubs, make the Gardens an Arcadia of beauty. There, is an extensive bush...

Longhorn Cattle. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 February 1901

Longhorn Cattle. The resuscitation of the Longhorn breed of cattle is a matter. of considerable interest to bleeders, for it seemed that after the death of its last preserver, the laite Duke of Buckingham and Chandos, this quaint race was doomed to pass into oblivion. Whence it came is unknown, but it can be traced back with a fair degree of certainity to the Craven district of Yorkshire. Subsequently to this it throve in the midland counties of England, where, in the latter "half of the 18th century it furnished the material upon which Robert Bakewell tried his skill as a breeder and improver. A Herd-book publish ed more than 20 years ago does not seem to have had any stimulating effect upon the pro gress of the breed, and at the jubilee show of the Royal Agricultural Society IT years ago, when the effort was made to secure types of all British breeds of cattle, the Longhorns mus tered less than a dozen head. These, however, came from districts as far apart as Warwick shire, Somers...

DISEASES OF DAIRY CATTLE AND THEIR REMEDY. PARTURITION. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 February 1901

DISEASES OF DAIRY CATTLE AND THEIR REMEDY. PARTURITION. Parturition is not a disease, but a natural animal function. Still, as grave complications are incidental to calving, which by a little ju dicious care before the event, and a little in telligent assistance at the time, or before the arrival of a qualified practitioner, may result in saving the life both of a valuable cow and her calf, it behoves'all interested in a dairy farm to become acquainted to a certain extent with the requirements and complications incidental to parturition. As parturition approaches, if housed at night -the cow should have a quiet box or stall-she will instinctively separate herself from the rest and seek quiet. Large poor cows are sometimes unable to stand for a week or two before calv ing, but no alarm need be entertained on that account. Feed her as usual on moderately good laxative food. See that the udders are not pressed upon, and that the milk (if any) is drawn twice daily. Cows that have had se...

MILK FEVER. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 February 1901

MILK FEVER. Cows in high condition at calving, especially, after the third calf, are subject to this disorder. : - SYMPTOMS. V The attack comes on about twenty-four hours or within three days after calving, the eyes are red and bloodshot, the head is hot, the cow is dull; restless (sometimes frenzied), with droop ing head, regardless of its food or calf, and the milk flow is diminished; the pulse and respira tion are hurried, the brain becomes affected, the animal staggers, breathes heavily, and lies down turning her head over her shoulder, resting on the horns. The earlier the case occurs after calving, the more fatal it is. PREVENTIVE MEASURES. As a preventive measure, good milking cows with large appetites should, a month before calving, be kept somewhat sparingly on a rather laxative diet They should be kept out of the hot sun-rays, have abundant exercise? and be fed on succulent but not too rich pasture. A week before calving, if the udder is dis tended, draw off the milk. Afte...

ENVIRONS OF TOOWOOMBA. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 February 1901

ENVIRONS OF TOOWOOMBA. A drive round the environs of the town re veals many points of interest and scenic beauty. Perhaps the best-known spot of this kind is Picnic Point, a bluff spur on the summit of the Range, and about a mile from the centre of the town. Standing on Picnic Point, and look ing eastwards, a magnificent stretch of mountain scenery can be seen. On either hand stretch the chains and spurs of the great Main Range, whilst in the far distance may be seen the blue outline of the mountains of the Little Liverpool Range. The old coach road up the Range can be traced almost as far as Murphy's Creek, with green farms dotted along its winding course. Some four miles from the town, out along the Highfields road, is the Blue Mountain Hotel, another very favourite holiday resort. The hotel is built right on the edge of the Range, and from it a splendid view of the mountains can be seen, and the zig-zag track of the railway line can be plainly traced for some miles.
