Pittsworth, Millmerran, and Turallan. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 March 1901

Pittsworth, Millmerran, and Turallan. FOUR lines branch off from the main rail way line after leaving Toowoomba and before Stanthorpe is reached-viz., Crows Nest, Pittsworth, Allora, and Killarney --each of which traverse country equal in every respect to that seen from the main line, and which is well worth seeing, if only to confirm the idea of the vast expanse of magnificent lands comprised in the area between the main coast range and the Harries Range. The first one, that going to Crows Nest, we have dealt with above. The Pittsworth line branches off at Wyreema Station, 20 miles from Toowoom ba, and goes westward for 16 miles to Pitts worth, traversing throughout a belt of rich park-like land, dotted with farm houses, and marked by furrow or rich green crops, a jour ney interesting to all connected with agricul tural pursuits. Two and a-half miles from Southbrook, a small station six miles from Pittsworth, is the land known as the Beauaraba Repurchase Estate, which, taken up man...

Answers to Correspondents. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 March 1901

Answers to Correspondents. SUEZ (Oakey).-The Suez Ganal shares are one of the best investments Great Britain ever made. They were purchased for ^4,000,000, and are at present valued at ^22.299,000. LOCAL GOVERNMENT (Pittsworth).- -It is useless to expect this office to" sympathise with you or help to criticise your board. The Local Government Act is sufficient for all purposes if your ratepayers will take in terest in the elections of their representa tives. You can take it as the invariable rule that the quality of the representatives is like unto the people. Take up your share of the burden. PLOUGH. (Christmas Creek).-Chas. New bold, of New Jersey, in 1797 obtained a patent for a cast-iron plough with mould board, share, and land slide all cast together. The plough, however, was heavy of draught, hard to hold, arid for deep cultivation re quired a man on the beams to hold them down, and were not much used, it being as serted. that the hew iron plough poisoned the land.

FLAVELLE, ROBERTS AND SANKEY, LTD. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 March 1901

FLAVELLE, ROBERTS AND SANKEY, LTD. In visiting this firm, we were struck by the magnificent display of ladies' gem rings, and we have no hesitation in saying that it is the finest exhibition of beautiful engagement rings ever exhibited in the colony. There are rings of every pattern it is possible to conceive, many of the pat terns being thoroughly new. Diamond rings were shown as the chief centre of attraction, and the splendid half-hoop rings, consisting of five diamonds in coronet settings, and ranging from down to ;/?6, were really magnificent. We also saw combinations of rubies and diamonds, sap phires and diamonds, and emerald and diamonds, at all prices between ^30 and ^5. The fashionable marquise ring is now also shown in many com binations-the sapphire with diamonds at £7 1 os. and JQIO being very beautiful. The most unique combination in this pattern ring is one having a ruby centre, with two beautiful green olivines above and below the ruby, and the whole surrounded by di...

Woman's World. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 March 1901

itFemon's Zlj0rf<sl. A Japanese bride's toilet is rather a painful process, judging by the description given by a well-known lady traveller, in her work upon some of the unbeaten tracks of Japan. The erection of the coiffure forms the chief part of the toilet; it is quite a work of art, and so stiffened and arranged that it will last in good order for a week or more-thanks to the wood en pillow on which a Japanese lady rests her head for slumber. The tftost painful part, how ever, follows the dressing of the hair, for, says the writer, " Every vestigfc of recalcitrant eye brow was removed, and every downy hair which dared to display itself on the temples and neck was pulled out with tweezers.** This must make natural hair look like a wig. After this, " the lady herself took a box of white powder, and laid it on her face, ears, and neck, till her skin looked like a mask. With a camel's hair brush she then applied some mix ture to her eyelids to make the bright eyes look br...

A Terror of an Uncle. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 March 1901

A Terror of an Uncle. George had come to town. It had taken him a long time to get there, and he was pro portionately gratified. The reason why he hadn't come before was Uncle William. Uncle William had been the reason for nearly everything since the days of George's earliest recollections. George and his sister Nina had grown up in Uncle William's household. He had been and still was-the trustee of their inheritance, the guardian of their morals, the embodiment, for them, of all the law and the prophets. He was a good man. George and Nina often admitted the fact as the prelude to a long discourse upon the horrors of living in his house. It is singular what a capacity some good men have for spreading terror among their families and dependents. In this in stance, though Nina was a girl of spirit, and George was the most utterly fearless youth that ever tested rotten limbs in tall trees for the fun of it, they both trembled at the sound of Uncle William's voice, whether it was address...

PRIMULA (NAT. ORD. PRIMULA CRAE). [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 March 1901

PRIMULA (NAT. ORD. PRIMULA CRAF^ This genus is a very large one, including as it does some of the most popular florists' flowers-namely, the auricula, the polyanthus, and the primrose. It is not possible to do more here than call the reader's attention, to the greenhouse varieties (of Prmula sinensis), so useful for winter decorations. These begin to flower early in November, and by care and succession may be kept up until spring is far advanced. For bouquets also they are almost invaluable. Taking them all in all, these are the most valuable winter-flowering plants in existence. Directions for Sowing and Culture.-Sow in March, April, May, June, and July,-with great care, for, although so easily raised in the hands of some, it is nevertheless a matter of great difficulty to others, who, in many instances, too hastily condemn the quality of the seed. Plant in pots, filled to within half-an-inch from the top with sifted leaf mould, or, what is better, with thoroughly rotted manure, wh...

WASHING FLANNELS AND BLANKETS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 March 1901

WASHING FLANNELS AND BLANKETS. Flannels should be washed in hot suds by simply lifting up and down, squeezing in the suds and stripping through the hands. The reason for not rubbing, is that the wool is pro vided with myriads of minute barbs, which, hooking into one another in the rubbing pro cess, cause shrinkage. Pass through a wringer and then two succesive clear waters of the same temperature as the suds. Dry in a warm place, as any variation of temperature in the different stages of the laundering is as fruitful a cause of shrinkage as any. Blankets which are not much soiled may be perfectly cleansed by the pressing and lifting process, passing through two suds and two rinsings, with the aid of a good wringer.

Recipes. To Make Scones.-Take three pounds of flour, a quarter of an ounce of bi-caibonate of soda, a quarter of an ounce of salt, and one pint of buttermilk, mix to the consistency of dough, roll out about half an inch thick, and cut into any shape, then bake on a griddle over a clear fire for ten or fifteen minutes, turning so as to brown on both sides. They may be baked on a hot iron or ironing stove. Cold Roast Beef Broiled.--Cut slices about a quarter of an inch thick from the undone part of the m£at; strew salt and pepper over it, and place it over the gridiron and let it heat very quickly; turn it over four times in as many minutes, and serve it up on a hot dish in melted butter; it must be put to broil when the dinner-bell rings, and served the moment it is to be eaten; it will then be found to be very nice.

HINTS ABOUT IRONING LACES. If you iron, your laces or your embroidered muslins on a board covered with several thick nesses of flannel, and no calico cover over, they will look much nicer than if ironed on an ordin ary board, as the flannel" gives/' and the raised work stands out far better than if the ironing is done in the usual way.
