Corn for Feeding Pigs. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 March 1901

Corn for Feeding Pigs. Some of the carbohydrates of the maize that is broken in the mouth and thoroughly mixed with the saliva are, by the action of its enzyme (ptyalin), to a considerable extent changed into soluble food, but the waste of the " whole grain" system is that such proportion of the grain is never broken at all, hence the unbroken grains pass through the alimentary canal undigested. This fact is evident to all farmers who' some times use whole grain. It is important that the digestive agents act freely on the constituents of the grain. In food there are three constitu ents we have to deal with-(i) albuminoids, (2) fatj (3) carbohydrates-and by following briefly the career of each constituent we shall see what are really the all-important digestive agents. (a) Carbohydrates, of which some are already soluble and need no digestion; others, as starch and cellulose, are naturally insoluble ; the in soluble starch is changed into soluble sugar by the action of saliva. (b) Th...

Bee Notes for March. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 March 1901

f I Bee Notes for March. Owing to the continued drought, which has prevented the pollen-producing plants yielding their stock of food, it is inadvisable to deplete the hives of honey. Most of the hives are weak owing to the short supply of food, and the new brood are small in numbers. If a good supply of honey is left it will encourage a robust growth for the coming winter, which latter will have to be prepared for by apiarists, especially in the Southern parts of the colony and upon the Downs, where winter commences earlier than around Rockhampton and further North, See that the colonies have good, lively Queens. Do not attempt to rear Queens unless there is a good supply of pollen, as Queens reared when pollen is scarce are generally dark and weedy. Maize is an excellent crop for apiarists to cultivate, it being an excellent pollen plant, and of course of great value for stock. Continued complaints are being made in respect to the prices obtained for the best class of honey, but u...

Profit in Draining Swamps. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 March 1901

// Profit in Draining Swamps. I recently called on Mr. Allen at Watkins. He is peculiarly situated. Four years ago a tract of land several hundred acres in extent was covered with nothing but cat-tails. It is several feet below the level of the lake, and is flooded over from the hills in the spring freshets. It probably was once covered by the lake, all the time, but now has filled up so as to be dry in midsummer. Mr. Allen dug ditches seven feet deep around its after constructing a dyke between it and the lake. At the lower corner a huge windmill and pump puts the water over into the lake, and this level tract is kept dry on the surface. This is not a typical black muck swamp, as there has been a good deal of the best part of the surrounding hills washed down and evenly deposited over the surface, without bringing any stone. By ploughing under the cat-tails and growing one crop of buckwheat it was sub dued, and is the finest soil to work in I ever saw. It requires no fertiliser or ...

Home Notes. THE TEETH. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 March 1901

THE TEETH. Decay of theteethis due to the development of a peculiar bacillus in the human moutn, producing an acid, which gradually eats away, nrst, the enamel, and then, much more rapiu ly, the dentine, exposing the pulp, wnich speedily becomes inflamed. Decay tnus once started can never be stopped until it is eradi cated from the dentine and the teeth are filled-. 1c begins in pits and grooves and where teeth toucti each other, especially between irregular teeth, because these are not protected from the friction of mastication and movement ol the lips. Since the tooth structure glows denser with age, the ravages of decay are greater m youth-all the more reason for impressing young people with the importance ot faithful use of powder and brush. The bacilli increase and do their work in direct proportion to the neglect of thoroughness of cleaning-condi tions being more favourable for their develop ment in some individuals than in others ; but if all the cracks and fissures of the en...

DEHORNING. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 April 1901

DEHORNING. Procure from your druggist one stick of caustic potash. Take your calf, about a week old, and with a common pair of scissors cut off the hair all around the young horns. Dampen the caustic in water and rub, repeat ing the process until the skin is all off. Put on flour if the horn bleeds much. Be careful not to drop the caustic water anywhere except around the horn, as it will leave a blemish. It leaves a perfect, well-shaped head and no trace of the horn whatever. Try it once, and you will always dehorn your cattle this way.

KICKING HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 April 1901

KICKING HORSE. Fill a grain sack half full of sand and swing up to the ceiling of the stable with a rope, so that the sack will hang just where the heels of the horse will have good play upon it. Tie the horse in the stall with a good strong rope, and let him kick. At the first kick the bag will swing away and return, giving the horse as good as he sent. For the next minute or so there will be a battle royal, but the sack will hold its own, returning ail it received with in terest. The horse in bucking against the real thing will soon come to a realisation of that., fact, and will be thoroughly cowed. Leave the sack behind him for a week or so, and then re move. If he ever tries to get into his old habits, give him another punch bag to exercise with.

Bee Notes for April. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 April 1901

Bee Notes for April. Now is the time to see that all the hives, and especially the covers, are thoroughly sound, with no boards half off from^ warping. All hives that require painting should be attended to. If you:want to do the painting in doors, finish one empty hive (or more if necessary), then as soon as the paint is dry, take them out to the apiary, and put the swarm (frame in cluded) into the newly painted hive, and so proceed until you have finished painting them all through. See that the paint is perfectly dry and the oily odour has gone off, as the latter may kill the bees. Chip away the grass from near the hive; it will prevent annoyance to the bees at the entrance, and will also prevent any danger from fire. See that the brood nest is not crowded out with honey, as the bees near the coast generally breed very well at this time of the year. To get the swarms in good con dition for winter, make sure that colonies have good, strong, lively, laying queens. A simple way to rea...

Notes of the Month. The Recent Federal Elections. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 April 1901

The RecentjFederal Elections. The elections that have just ben held in Queensland for members for the Senate aiid House of Representatives have given to this State a shock such as it will take some con siderable time to fully realise. The results show that out of six Senators elected, four may be classed as representing Labour-three of these belonging to that extreme section who impugned the bravery of our soldiers fighting in South Africa, andj who have always espoused the cause of the Boer against the Briton. Men who have initiated and fought for. the primary interests of the State have been thrust aside viz., Messrs. Thynne, Cowley, Murray-Prior, Bartholomew, Hamilton, and Plant-in prefer ence to these avowed enemies of their country. With respect to the elections for the House of Representatives, we find that Labour has five candidates returned in Messrs. Page, Banaford, Fisher, McDonald, and Wilkinson; the latter, however, does not belong to the Trades Hall clique. The two grea...

The Western Pastoralists. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 April 1901

The Western Pastoralists. The visit of the party organised by Mr. Story, the member for the Balonne, last month was too late to witness in its full misery the effect of the drought which for years has de vastated the West, rendering the land a desert, and bringing ruination to all interested in this, the chief of our primary industries. The evi dence, however, was there in patches of skele-^ tons or scattered bones along the edge ofa. ' now filled lagoon and Warrego River. evidence produced by the President of the United Pastoralists' Association before the New South Wales Royal Commission must have struck those who have taken any interest in the question to the importance of early action for the support of the industry. The fact of hun dreds of station hands coming to the coast seeking work, and the great falling off in orders to merchants and storekeepers, has brought the question into great prominence, and the matter of an extension of leases for a definite number of years is the...

Warwick Farmers' Milling Co. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 April 1901

Warwick Farmers' Milling Co. About a mile from the Post Of^ce and close to where the waters of the Condamine river swirl and eddy, is the large stone mill owned by the* Warwick Farmers' Milling Co., Limited, in which the famous " Imperial" brand of flour is manufactured. As one passes down by the river bank the mill is seen to bear the sign of its early building, but inside the mill acces sories are of the latest, and the quality of; the product produced is shown by the enormous sale it commands throughout south-western Queensland. The building owes its erection in 1878 to Mr. C. E. Hayes, at that time .one of the foremost millers of New South Wales, a position quickly ,attained by him in Queens land. The mill was first fitted with the old French burr stone system for grinding. This was shortly vafter converted into the Allis sys tem of steel rollers, this being the first mill in Australia to introduce this American method of milling. Mr. J. W. Stack joined Mr. Hayes in 1880, and th...

The N.S.W. Western Lands Commission. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 April 1901

The N.S.W. Western Lands Commission. The following is a copy of the table which Mr. Cameron used to illustrate his remarks when giving evidence before the Royal Com mission from New South Wales which recently visited Brisbane. From this table it will be seen how dependent the increase of stock was upon the rainfall. In 1887 the increase was assisted by large importations from the southern colonies, but both 1887 and1 1890 were good seasons, that is * to say, the rainfall was good right throughout the year. This table is taken from the Registrar-General's reports, and in cludes both western and coastal lands, and :>s therefore not a true index of the awful decrease in the Western country proper; this we will be able to give later on. 1885 1886 1887 1888 1889 1890 1891 1892 1893 1894 1895 1896 1897 1898 1899 SHEEP.

STANTHORPE. THE Main Southern railway line goes past Warwick for 38 miles before this impor tant centre of fruit growing in Southern Queensland is reached. The interven ing country consists of ridges, well grassed and heavily timbered, the line winding in and out of the spurs which come down from the adja cent Dividing range, and which separates Queensland from New South Wales ; a range which we run parallel with for many miles. The temperature is considerably lower than at Warwick, which can well be understood when the different altitudes are considered. The latter town is 1,485 feet above sea level, and nine miles on, at Silverwood, it is 1,911 feet; at Cherry Gully, 187 miles, it is 2,408 feet; followed by Maryland, 190 miles, 2,560 feet; Dalveen, 194 miles, 2,905 feet; Thulimbah, 3,008 feet-the highest station on the Southern railway line, and1 199 miles from Brisbane.
