The Orchard. The Biggest Vineyard in the World [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 28 April 1900

The Orchard. The Biggest Vineyard in the World *» i . . I I. A TI I N, Belonged to the late Senator JLeland Stan ford, and lies in the heart of the Sacrame.it 3 Valley, about 200 miles north of San FfAn - cisco. The wine and brandy production of this farm of 59,000 acres is so great that Uncle Sam has put a bonded warehouse upon it to collect his taxes, and this warehouse oc cupies more than two acres of space. The big vineyard embraces about six square miles of territory, laid off with great regularity into lots of uniform size and streets of reg ilar width. One might indeed call it a city of grapes, as each' block contains about 1400 vines, or 680 vines to the acre. The grapes on this wonderful vineyard ripen in July, and the picking begins about the 1st of Au gust. Gangs of men and boys, numbering over 1000 at the height of the season, aie employed in collecting the juicy crop, which they put in boxes holding 50ft) each. Over 12,000 of these boxes are constantly ready for use, an...

THE PIG INDUSTRY. Some views of Mr. Reid (J. C. Hutton). [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 28 April 1900

THE PIG INDUSTRY. Some views of Mr. Reid (J. C. Hutton). The pig industry of the South-eastern poi> tion of the colony has undoubtedly been one of the most important factors in the successful settlement of the lands in. this part of Queens land, and, conjoined with dairying it has as sisted selectors over many difficulties which, eventuate in the uncertain seasons, ever pre valent in the colony. What magnitude the in dustry will ultimately develop into one can but conjecture, but that it will assume enorm ous proportions can be well assumed after such a progress as pig raising has made since the establishment of the various factories. It was sometime before farmers realised the great value that the pig would eventually be to them, and even now there seems a likelihood of this knowledge being rendered of little use unless greater forethought is exercised, and brains, the element of continued progress, is brought into the business. To Messrs. J. C. Hutton, the well known firm of ha...

How Cow Peas Fertilise the Soil. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 28 April 1900

How Cow Peas Fertilise the Soil. BY " NITROGEN," NAMBOUR. There is a class of vegetables which sci entists call legumes. This is merely a French word signifying vegetables generally applied to potatoes, turnips, carrots, etc. The legumes here alluded to, however, are such as have the power of supplying the soil with the im portant ingredient for fertility-nitrogen. But although we hear men discoursing of the great value of the cow-pea, velvet bean, soja bean, and other legumes as nitrogen pro ducers, it is rarely that they have arrived at a knowledge of the fact, that unless a soil con tains certain other ingredients, the cow-pea will give no more return to a crop of corn or anything else. These ingredients are phos phoric acid, and potash, a perfect fertiliser, consisting of substances containing these and nitrogen. Now, the cow-pea contains all, and a crop of ten tons on an acre will contain 135 lb of nitrogen, 90 lb of potash, and 30 lb of phosphoric acid. Now where do the potash...

The Cultivation of Barley. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 28 April 1900

The Cultivation of Barley. BY "MALTSTER," DARLING DOWNS. We have now arrived at the season when cereals may be sown. Wheat is said to be the staff of life, and very properly so, but barley is a crop which, if successful, will put many a pound into the farmer's pockets. In writ ing on this subject, we desire to assist the farmers in avoiding errors which result in loss. Every farmer has his own peculiar ideas and fads about wheat and barley growing. Often they are right, but oftener they are wrong. When should barley be sown, with a prospect of best results ? This is a vital ques tion. Some say April--if rains come; but if rains do not come, try May. ? Now, our ex perience tells us that May is the better month, and for another reason besides that of the greater likelihood of rain, and that is that me grain will be ripe about November. For this reason, it is inadvisable to sow after June, because the grain cannot possibly ripen till very late in the year, and the strong rays of the De...

AGRICULTURE COMMERCIAL. FARM PRODUCE MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 28 April 1900

?<::£ m ;3 FARM PRODUCE MARKETS. Throughout the past month cereals and fruits have been in good supply, and the de mand has been keen, except the citrus fruits, which are scarcely ready to gather. It is ex pected that this latter crop will be particularly large. Our correspondents in the various dis tricts, Toowoomba, Maryborough, and Woom bye, Nambour, and the Blackall Range give a united opinion to this effect. It is hoped that the packing this .,t;ason will be of a much better nature than was the case last year, as growers lose considerably for their inattention in this regard, and aid in reduc ing the general market price. Quotations : - Apples, 4s. 6d. to 7s. 6d.; factory, 3s. 6d. to 4s.; pears, best eating, 6s. to 7s.; medium, 2s. 6d. to 3s.; factory, is. to 2s.; oranges, 2s. 6d. to 4s. 6d.; pines, is. to 3s. 6d.; bananas, id. to 2^d. per doz.

LONDON MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 28 April 1900

LONDON MARKETS. During the series of London wool sales 83,000 bales were sold for the Home Market, 59,000 for Europe, and 10,000 for the United States, with 109,000 bales carried forward for the next series, opening on the 8th of May. There is every likelihood of a strong im provement in prices. WOOL. During the past month upwards of 2,000 bales have b?en exported from Brisbane, bringing the total from Janunry 1st up .0 21,585 bales. FROZEN MEAT. With the exception of a slight rise in Australian forequarters of beef the market shows a general decline. SADDLE GALLS.-To prevent saddle galls, the saddle should be lined with some smooth hard substance. Flannel or woollen cloth is bad. A hard finished, smooth rawhide lining, similar to those of the military saddle is preferable. Then, if the saddle is properly fitted to the horse's back, there will be no galls unless the horse is very hardly used. Galls should be washed with soap and water, and then with a solution of six grains of coppe...

Woman's World. UNEXPECTED GUESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 28 April 1900

UNEXPECTED GUESTS. Unless upon unusual occasions the average country housewife has at hand the material for a dinner good enough for the most fastidious guest. Even the old standby, salt beef or pork if sweet and nice^ need not be despised. Slice it thin, freshen, and dip in cracker dust or flour ; then fry to a delicate brown, first putting into the frying pan a little butter to prevent the meat from sticking to the pan, and if accompanied by potatoes, either baked to a turn, or boiled and mashed with plenty of cream and butter, eggs in some form, cream gravy, good bread and butter, pickles and some vegetable, either cabbage, onions, squash, or turnip, canned fruit, served with cake, with the addition of a cup of good coffee, enriched with plenty of cream, you will have a dinner of which no one need be ashamed to invite her guests to partake. Of course at most seasons of the year, ham, sausage, or fresh meat are kept on hand, and in such case the salt pork may be dispensed with. Gu...

The Texas Tobacco Crop. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 28 April 1900

The Texas Tobacco Crop. It will be pleasant reading when we get the full report of the Government Tobacco Expert, Mr. R. S. Neville, who has just re turned from a lengthened sojourn in the border district, Stanthorpe, Texas, etc., where he has been engaged in superintending the harvesting of the tobacco crop. Owing to causes with which most people are familiar, the tobacco industry, which used to put so much money into the grower's pockets, prin cipally Chinamen by the way, was practically abandoned until the advent of Mr. Neville. That gentleman has travelled all over the cojony with a determination to resuscitate the industry, and he has been very successful in his work. Not only has he disseminated a large amount of literature of a practical nature, but he has imported the best seed from various countries, and has been inde fatigable in giving the farmers ocular de monstration of the most approved methpds of growing and curing the crop. He has just helped to harvest some two and ...

Home Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 28 April 1900

Honne Notes THE DINING ROOM-There is no necessity to allow the dining room to become as shabby as is usually the case with this much used portion of the house. A supply of varnish stain for the floor or of enamel paint for the articles of furniture much injured by little feet, may be obtained of any ironmonger for the small sum of one shilling per pint. Any amateur can apply them and they dry so quickly that the articles may be put into use almost immediately. * * * RE-COVERING CHAIRS.-A new covering for an old chair seat may be either serge, tapestry, or cretonne-cut out the pattern to allow a small surplusage all round; place between the new and old covering a folded piece of thick brown paper ; with small tacks pin the new covering to the seat frame or the under side of the frame straining the covering as tightly as possible before entering each tack. Now take a length of silk or cotton gimp, and using gimp or furniture nail at a distance no greater than quarter of an inch apart,...

BEES. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 21 May 1900

Bees cannot do well in large towns where . they mostly depend upon the sweets they can( pick up in stores, jam factories, and' odd places. One good gum tree in bloom is worth a biy; garden. Swamp-growing trees and shrubs gent-rally yield a poor quality of honey. The broad and narrow-leaved ti-tree yield honey in great quantities in some seasons, generally at times of mild dr ught. To the apiarist a lucerne field is the best substitute for good forest country. Maize gives plenty of pollen but little honey. Flooded gum, mahogany, and blood wood all give honey, but at uncertain seasons. Red gum gives a dark inferior honey. Spotted gum usually flowers in mid-winter, white gum in the fall of the year, bloodwood about March. Swamp mahogany is a good honey-yielding plant. The Australian forest apple tree yields pro fusely once in about seven or eight years. The honey is dark and tasteless, like burnt sugar. Orange trees yield a beautiful flavoured honey. Fruit trees generally, as they do n...

CHICKENS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 21 May 1900

CHICKENS. There is no reason and little profit in allow ing chickens to be slow in coming to maturity. Only lack of proper food will keep it from forging ahead. Give them plenty of sunlight, pure water, and above all clean quarters. Raw eggs beaten up with bread-crumbs are excellent for the first few days. Rolled oats are good for the chicks to pick at. After the first week give them boiled wheat. A little cooked potato, vegetable, or lean meat. Until the chickens are eight or ten weeks old everything they are fed upon should f>e thoroughly cooked. Fresh ground bone is one of the ch#apgst and probably one of the best feeds for growing chickens or laying hens. Feed very little corn meat to growing chickens until it is desired to gather them* '

HARVESTING MAIZE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 21 May 1900

HARVESTING MAIZE. The best time to begin harvesting corn is the earliest moment the crop can be put in the crib without damage. The earlier the ears are gathered the earlier the cattle can be put into the field and the more and better feed they will get. When two men are at work it is best to drive over a row, each man taking his turn on the " down row." The horse should be muzzJed, not on ac count of the corn they eat, but because they waste it. The Blind Asylum, Ipswich Road, Brisbane, will supply a small cane basket suitable lor this purpose, cheap. When there are two men at work have two wagons; then one man can husk whilst the other puts the load in the crib. If the man remaining in the field throws the corn upon the ground it must be handled again, which would be avoided if there were an extra wagon. When one man gathers let him take two or three rows on the left of the wagon (unless he is left-handed) driving over the last row husk ed. Have a high extra board on the side of t...
