USEFUL RECIPES. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 February 1901
USEFUL RECIPES. Eggs Poached in Tomato Sauce.-Put into the fryingpan one tablespoonful of butter, one tablespoonful of flour; heat until frothy; stir into it one and a-half teacupful of tomato1 (which has been peeled and chopped fine and heated) and then strain into the fryingpan a dash of cayenne pepper and a heaping saltspoonful of salt; cook until creamy, and drop in four eggs; baste often, and when whites are set remove and put each egg on a quarter of a slice of buttered toast and pour sauce around them. Tomato Omelette.-Parboil two onions, and while this is going on skin enough tomatoes to make three pints when cooked with a little hot water. Add the onions and one cupful and a-half of breadcrumbs, a teaspoonful each of salt and pepper, and four tablespoonfuls of butter. Beat these all together, and set over a slow fire to stew. They should cook for not less than an hour. After they are done, and just before the time it is intended to serve them beat up six eggs and stir them ...
ON VEGETABLES. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 February 1901
// ON VEGETABLES. The mode of serving vegetables alone does not readily find favour with English people, especially in households where an elaborate table is not kept. But a good plan is to serve one vegetable as an accompaniment to the meat and another after an entremet. For in stance, with roast mutton> serve potatoes and onion sauce, and afterwards a dish of cauli flower au gratin, or a dish of stuffed tomatoes, or of spinach in croutons. With roast beef, a Yorkshire pudding, and horse-radish sauce, and after it a lettuce salad with plain French dressing. With brown stews of meats, carrots, parsnips, and Jerusalem artichokes go> well, only they should finish cooking in the stew. An Irish stew of neck of mutton is much improved by having turnips put in with the potatoes, and salsify goes exceedingly well with that refined edition of this homely dish which we call a ragout. With chicken, boiled or roasted, celery sauce? sea-kale and cream sauce, marrows and white sauce, are a...
SOFT AND GLOSSY HAIR. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 February 1901
SOFT AND GLOSSY HAIR. The use of this shampoo will keep the hair in perfect condition, rendering it soft and glossy: Shake the yolk of an egg in half a pint of alcohol till thoroughly mixed. Strain, and you will have a clear fluid left, which will keep for an indefinite period. Into each basin of water used for washing the hair put one or two tablespoonfuls of this liquid. Rub well into the scalp, and through the hair. Rinse in clean warm water. Rub with a linen towel till partly dry, and then take a large Japanese fan and fan vigorously till perfectly dry, when the hair will be delightfully soft and glossy.
DAILY EXERCISES FOR DELICATE WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 February 1901
BAIL/ EXERCISES FOR DELICATE WOMEN. Observe the women in any condition of life, and you will ascertain that the majority are not only physically weak, but that they also lack the beauty and grace of a well-proportioned figure. Instead of high chests, rounded arms, and supple waists, you often see quite the re verse. Not one girl in a dozen is graceful, whether standing, sitting, or walking. They may not be exactly clumsy or awkward, but there is a general lack of spring and elasticity in their movements. Now, the negligence of physical exercise is the primary cause of this unprepossessing con dition. It is astonishing how far a little daily development will carry one in the direction of gaining health and strength, and of improv ing the symmetry of the figure, and it is quite as surprising to think how few assist Nature in this simple and effectual manner. And what should girls and women do each day ? Wooden dumb-bells of no heavier weight than two pounds should be used, and the usu...
Woman's World. PAX! [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 February 1901
lllomQFi's I&arfd. PAX! Empress and Queen of Land and Sea, Of climes of oak and palm, This is her hour of majesty. Quiet, and cold and calm. Kaiser-i-Hind 3 sits by her bed Inexorable Fate ; By Osborne Palace kneels the dread Black camel at the gate. The peasant hut with roof of thatch, The palaces of pride, Death presses softly on the latch The door is opened wide. He takes, the gentle God and bland, With kind and smiling mein, The needle from the seamstress' hand, The sceptre from the Queen. The rose of silence at his lips, The doom upon his knees, The purple girdle round his hips So comes Hypocrates. And he his stamp august has pressed Upon her brow serene; The royal woman lies at rest God Save the Queen! Victor J. Daly, in the Sydney " Bulletin." / /

Beer and Barley. J. H. SANDERSON, Toowoomba. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 February 1901
Beer and Barley. J. H. SANDERSON, Toowoomba. It is possible the disastrous consequences brought about by using substitutes, or rather partial substitutes, for malt and hops for making beer, may blow some good in the farmers' direction, inasmuch as it may be made impera tive by law that other ingredients than malt and hops shall not be used. There is no neces sity for using anything else. On the English farms in bygone days agriculturists brewed all their beer consumed on the holdings, and no more wholesome beverage was ever taken. Malt and hops, and malt and hops only, were used, and both were of English production. Many a farmer, too, grew both, and malted the barley that made his own beer. Even if home brewing does not become common again, there is no reason why beer similar in whole someness to that which was produced at home should not be manufactured by the companies that trade in the drink. Sugar* in which ap peared the poisonous ingredients that have caused suqh a dire disast...
CHILDREN'S TEETH TROUBLES. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 February 1901
CHILDREN'S TEETH TROUBLES. The question is often asked, when should a nurse begin to1 brush a child's teeth ? It is im possible to begin the use of the brush too soon. The first time the child's mouth is washed, let a small suitable brush, not a sponge, be used at least twice a day, thoroughly and carefully. It is a hopeless task to attempt to persuade boys and girls of eight to sixteen-a time of life when the will is strong, and neither care for the future nor interest in personal appear ance has taken any hold upon the mind-io pay attention to their teeth, if the habit of clean liness in this respect has not been formed in early childhood. Let the child grow up from its earliest con sciousness with a feeling that a toothbrush is a daily necessity to be faithfully used, and the habit will not be easily set aside when the mind begins to act for itself. See that the teeth are really brushed in a common-sense manner, as a piece of plate would be cleaned for the table. No good housekee...

Warwick Show. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 February 1901
I s Warwick Show. The annual Exhibition of the Eastern Downs A., H., and P. Society was held at Warwick on 30th ultimo, and in all respects was most suc cessful. The death of Her late Majesty the Queen compelled the abandonment of the open ing ceremony and the toast list at the luncheon, but the district exhibitors responded loyally to the committee, and the result was a collection of exhibits that will go far to uphold the tradi tional reputation of the Darling Downs. The wheat exhibits were a distinct feature of the show, and the quantity and quality of the wheat exhibited supplied abundant evidence of the good harvest experienced in the district. The Main Street, Pittsworth. champion prize for the best exhibit of wheat was awarded to Mr. William Kyle, of Ellan gowan, for a splendid exhibit, weighing 68jfb. to the bushel, and the second prize to Mr. E. Henrickson, weight 671b. to the bushel. For the best four bushels of Spring wheat, Mr. George Alexander took first and second priz...

Field, Orchard and Garden. FEBRUARY. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 February 1901
Field, Orchard and Garden. FEBRUARY. BY TAS. MITCHELL, Bowen Park. FLOWER GARDEN-The chief work for the month will be to keep down weeds now that rain has come. The gardener should now shoulder his scythe and get the lawn-mower into order, as both tools will be in special request directly, keep the grass down with the mower, and it will soon thicken, even where partly killed by the drought. If the summer annuals have failed, clean up the beds, fork in some well-rotted manure, and keep the beds as pe.it as possible. Until the winter annuals are ready mignonette, candytuft, and dianthus may be sown broadcast, and raked in here and there in the borders, and if conditions are favourable to them they will be handy for transplanting later on. Now is the time to prepare for sowings of nearly all garden seeds. A hint on seed sowing may be useful to readers at this season. Flower garden seeds are generally sown in boxes or pots (especially early sowing), and special atten tion should be give...
Feeding Wheat to Pigs. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 February 1901
J. Finnie, Esq., Drayton. Feeding Wheat to Pigs. the Editor.) Sir,-For some weeks past I have noticed reference in your journal to the difficulty far mers have in disposing of their wheat at a satis factory price, and various suggestions have been made with a view to their obtaining a higher price for their grain. In the annual report of the Department of Agriculture for 1899-1900, Mr. J. Mahon, the principal of the Gatton Col lege, supplies some very interesting data on the question of pig feeding, which I should like to see your paper copy for the information of your farming and dairying readers. We have long been accustomed' to obtain certain information from the experimental farms of America, where pig feeding was conducted under somewhat dif ferent conditions, but this is the first time we have had information supplied from our own college, and the trials being conducted with very great care makes the information of value and interest to all engaged in pig raising. One interest...

Bees—Some Lessons. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 February 1901
Bees-Some Lessons. Every farmer should keep bees for honey, for amusement, for instruction* to cross-fertilise his fruits, and to help in fertilising his clover. Most farmers pay little or no attention to the bees. They do not understand their value or the importance of keeping a few hives on every farm, if for nothing else than fertilising the flowers. First, use nothing but movable hives. This is essential to success. The old-fashioned bee gums and box hives are better than nothing, as the bees will manage to do the farmer some good if let alone, but if you pay any attention to your bees at all, use some form of hive with movable comb. Buy a movable comb hive from some of your neighbours, then have the frames in all your hives made exactly the same size, so that any frame will fit any hive. This is the first point. The second is to> get Italian bees. If you have black bees, get an Italian queen from some of your neighbours. Why Italian ? Because they are larger than the common ...
Laws of the Dairy Farm. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 March 1901
Laws of the Dairy Farm. And these are some of the laws of the farm, Which may be thought worth attention, Though all will allow that the list Would admit of much further extension. Cull well thy herd and thou'lt find The alchymist secret unfold, From the centre all round to the fence They'll turn all the grass into gold. When the new calf refuses its milk, And coyly declines for to suck it, Don't pour the mess over its head And bang its frail form with the bucket. When a cow wears thy patience to shreds, By " playing the goat" in the bail, Then fan not her ribs with the stool, Let sober discretion prevail. In winter, the cows that give milk Should have enough feed put inside, Don't milk the poor creatures right down To the bones and the tripe and the hide. If thy temper is not of the best, And thou art not as mild as a Chow, Give horses and pigs a wide berth, . And never go near a milch cow. And ne'er let thy leisure be dull, * Be thou dairyman, farmer, or breeder, While for sixpenc...

Garden Notes for the Darling Downs. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 March 1901
Garden Notes for the Darling Down6. By GEO. SEARLE, Toowoomba. KITCHEN GARDEN.-Make full sowing of carrot, parsnip, and beet. Sow in drills 16 to 18 inches apart; for each of these press the drills with the back of the rake instead of drawing them. A sowing of onions may be made, but for the main sowing next month is preferable, as many go to seed if sown this month. Onion seeds, like carrots and parsnips, require a firm bed, and the drills should be pressed as advised above. Sow turnip, main crop; also leeks, parsley, lettuce, endive, rad ish, mustard and cress as required. Cauli flowers, cabbage, kohl rabi, swede, and savoys may also be sown and planted out from pre vious sowings in ground well manured. In the warmer parts of the ditsrict peas may still be sown; choose early sorts, also broad beans, early long-pod; salsify and scorzonera should sow the seed this month. Potatoes may be planted in the early part of the month, except in the most southern parts of the Downs. Plant out...
