CRACKS AND SORES ON TEATS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 February 1901

CRACKS AND SORES ON. TEATS. These cracks and sores interfere with milk ing, They are irritable, and often bleed, giving great discomfort to the cow, causing her to fall off in her flesh and the amount of milk. They . are mostly caused from want of cleanliness, the udders being dirty, and the milkers milking with wet hands, the dirt getting ground into the teats. The cuticle of some cows' udders being more tender than others, the dirt and the wet causes sore teats. Wash or brush round the udders with a cloth or brush before milking, and milk with dry hands that have the finger-nails cut short. If the teats are too sore for hand-milking, draw off the milk with a syphon. Wash the sores with warm soap and water, dry gently with a cloth, and smear the teats with Glycerate of Tannin.

The Dairy. PAYING AND NON-PAYING METHODS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 February 1901

The PAYING AND NON-PAYING METHODS. During the past year, a factory manager in Victoria writes, we have paid one of our suppli ers £12 per cow for each cow milked in a herd of 16, and five of the number were heifers milk ing with first calf. To another supplier we paid ^5 per cow in a herd of 20. The ^5 herd was given good useage and grain in abundance, were warmly housed and kindly treated. The £1.2 herd was. dairy bred, fed on a milk-produc ing ration, and otherwise treated about the same as their ^5 neighbours. The cows of each herd were neighbours belonging to farm ers of the same community, kept on the same kind of land, and the climatic conditions were identical. What produced the difference in the earnings of these cows? It was the difference in the owner. The feeder of the ^12 was a student. He studied the questions of breeding a good cow, and what and how to feed and care for her. He read and studied, owned and operated . a Babcock test, had scales convenient to his milking ...

Local Authorities. THE MUNICIPALITY OF TOOWOOMBA. The year i860 saw Too-woomba such a thriv ing community, and of such growing import ance, that it was thought necessary to apply for the incorporation of the town under the Munici pal Institutions Act of 1858 (N.S.W.).

"Our Sentiments." [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 February 1901

"Our Sentiments." We spoke of our last issue of the disappoint ment felt by the foreign section of our wool buyers at the fact that their governments were not permitted to partake in any of our federal family festivities. From the expressions overheard by us during the " procession " on the first day of the Com monwealth and the grand military parade two days later, we conclude that both displays have proved a real eye-opener to those of them as still doubted the military resources of the British family. More especially our Indian and New Zealand troops are said to have put the fear of God into these unbelieving foreigners and we could see distinct signs of terror on their faces, when our glorious Guards and Scotch regiments with their awe-inspiring head gear, check trousers and lovely kilts, came into Vision. Our foreign wool buyers are said to be also agitated at the growth of the Imperial spirit which sly old Chamberlain is trying to work for all it is worth towards the establish...

Lampas in Horses. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 February 1901

Lampas in Horses. BY W. T. KENDALL, M.R.V.S. Lampas, I may tell you at the outset, is not a disease, and that the operation of burning out some of the bars of the mouth for a supposed disease is barbarous, cruel, and useless, and often worse than useless. Having made these somewhat bold assertions, you will naturally enough, expect me to give my reasons for mak ing statements, which may appear contrary to facts. In order to do this more perfectly,; it will be necessary to glance briefly at the-anat omy and physiology of the parts involved in what is commonly termed Lampas, and in doing S3 I will endeavour to avoid technicalities as much as possible. : If you examine the upper jaw of a horse you will find there are a number of semi-circular ridges running across the roof of the mouth, the substance of which these ridges and grooves is composed is generally termed the palate, and consists of a quantity of thickened mucous mem brane covering an elastic fibrous substance, con taining a ...

Bulimba Election. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 February 1901

Bulimba Election. The following is the text of Mr. W. H. Barnes, the endorsed Government candidate's reply to the requisition, asking him to contest the electorate: - Fellow-Electors, As previously intimated, it affords me great pleasure to comply with the requisition presented to me, and to offer myself for the vacancy caused by the death of your esteemed member, the late Sir J. R. Dickson. His loss is, I venture to say, deeply deplored not only by yourselves, but by the whole State.

COLDS AND CHILLS, BR0NCHIT1C COUGH. In cold and exposed districts, when the cattle are first turned out after being housed through the winter, they are liable to contract colds, chills, and coughs. The symptoms are when the cattle have a stiff gait, a rapid pulse, and a hot dry nose, ac companied by loss of appetite and general dul ness. REMEDIES. Place the cow in a warm, dry, well-ventilated house or loose box, "rug-up," and feed with nourishing griiels, and give the following drench for a cold : - Powdered digitalis, i drachm. Liquid acetate of ammonia, 3 oz. Sweet spirits of nitre, 2 oz. Belladonna extract, 2 drachms. with easily digested and succulent food.

ALLAN AND STARK.-The sales are still booming and likely to for the month of Feb ruary. Bargain hunters are reaping a harvest, for the reduced goods are most choice and fashionable. We noticed some voilles in lovely shades at Allan and Stark's for 9!d. per yard. The usual price is. iid., but as they are mostly summer shades the firm sacrifices them at the above price.

For child ren's frocks this line is specially recommended.

THE PERFECT WALK. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 February 1901

THE PERFECT WALK. Grace and dignity, as essentials to the perfect walk, are commonly recognised and acknow ledged. What women do not realise is that these good things lie within the power of each individual to attain. The essentials are simply perseverance and a study of methods employed by those who succeed. The peasant women of Fiance, who habitually carry burdens upon their heads and who wear no* shoes, are models Carelessness of pose and high heels do much towards the common undesirable method of covering the ground. The astute advice given by an artist to a girl friend will obviate both: " Take off your Louis XV. shoes," said he, " and place them on your head. When you can walk the length of the room and keep them per fectly balanced, they will, for the first time in history, have contributed to an ideal walk." Deep lines round the eyes are best cured by plenty of rest, cascara taken regularly if consti pation is at all a trouble and a tonic of iron pills taken steadily for thr...

PEARLY TEETH. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 February 1901

PEARLY TEETH. An authority on dentistry says that pearly teeth do not wear well, and that the girl with square jaws and teeth that make up in strength what they lack in beauty will stand a better chaance in the long run of preserving her good looks than a beauty of the accepted type. Biting your lips is not only a bad habit, but it will in time impair the shape of the mouth and give the lips a parched, cracked look.
