Field, Orchard and Garden. MARCH. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 March 1901

Field, Oicbaid and Bardea. MARCH. BY TAS. MITCHELL, Bowen Park. FLOWER GARDEN.-Every advantage should be taken of the late rains to bring tne garden up to its proper standard of beauty with weather such as we have just been favoured with ; March is the busiest month in the year, and attention is requisite in every corner. The weeds will get a strong hold it not kept in constant check. Keep the scythe and lawn-mower going; this work is best done in the morning while the grass is wet. Hedges and Alternanthera bordering should be kept clipped, as they soon grow out of order. Do not clip the Alternanthera too late in the season ; leave it fairly rough so that the extra foliage will protect the roots from frost during the winter months. Sow seeds of all the win ter annuals during this month. If the early sowing of seeds recommended last month have not been a success, try another sowing. Cine rarias should be up in a few days after planting. Carnations in two or three days; Pansies about ...

Representatives for Senators in the Federal Parliament [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 March 1901

Representatives for Senators in the Federal Parliament In dealing with the names of those who have been nominated for the important positions of Senators in the Federal Parliament^ we re cognise one clear line of argument only, a contention which may well be held by the whole of our readers, viz.. that we desire for the service of the State able and experienced men, each wth a general knowledge of the principal industries of this State, and a special arid in timate connection with one at least of them. The principal industries of Qu'eensland aare agricultural, pastoral, mining and sugar. The importance of these industries to Queensland will be seen from the following figures, giving the value of the produce from the returns available, viz.:-Pastoral, including dairy,. ^8,172,000; Agriculture, except sugar,. ^1,250,000; Minerals, ^3,140,000; and Sugar, an export value of ^1,162,360.

Queensland Loan for £1,000,000. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 March 1901

Queensland Loan for £1,000,000. With reference to the advertisement appear ing in this issue from the Queens land Treasurer, inviting tenders for the loan of the above sum or any part, not less than £100, we consider that this is an opportunity that depositors in the various banks, and es pecially those of the Government Savings Bank, should take the fullest advantage of. The security is excellent, and the interest of per cent, is a considerable advance upon the amount obtainable in any of the institu tions named. In the Government Savings Bank there are 81,476 depositors, with a sum to their credit on the 28th of February last of ^3>776>898- We expect that a considerable number of these depositors will avail them selves of this opening to obtain an increase of 1 per cent, on the deposits that are offered.

Agricultural Depression and Laziness. W. HAYLORK, Warwick. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 March 1901

Agricultural Depression and Laziness. W. HAYLORK, Warwick. The eternal and inexorable law that the only price of good things is labour, has its applica tion to the subject of agricultural depression. Though the enemy has sown tares in the laws while the farmer has slept, this alone cannot cause agricultural depression, nor can the tyranny of capital, if the farmer himself were not, in some degree, at fault. At any rate, the remedy is in his own hands, and, while striking a blow at the cause of the injury, he should look at himself, to see what part of the blame is due to his own weakness and lack of fore sight. The " relentless heir' of poverty which? Henry George says, yawns beneath civil society, is due to the presence of a horde of men who would gain something for nothing; the natural penalty for laziness is one of the important ele ments in the so-called agricultural depression. A notion having been spread among country people that the dwellers in towns do not have to work hard ...

Lampas in Horses—Continued. W. V. KENDAL, M.R.V.S. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 March 1901

Lampas in Horses-Continued. W. V. KENDAL* M.R.V.S. I must now say a word or two oh dentition. As you are well aware, the horse in common with other single hoofed animals, has two sets of teeth, one termed temporary, and the other permanent. At the time of . birth the foal generally has two central incisor teeth up, and in a month or so afterwards the next two make their appear ance, and the two corner ones soon follow. At two and a half years or thereabouts, the two central ones are shed and the permanent ones spring up in their place. At three and a half, the corner ones. During the time that the temporary teeth are being cast, and the per manent ones making their appearance, and often for a considerable time afterwards, the gums and palate are swollen and tender, some times to such an extent as to interfere with mastication. This swelling of the gums and palate is con sequent upon, and necessary to dentition. The young teeth receive their nourishment and the materials for their gr...
