An Ideal Blackface Ram. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 April 1901
An Ideal Blackface Ram. His face must be broad, and his jaw must be deep, And square at the muzzle, and not come to a peak; His horn must be light, sloping back past the crown, And his head must be free from all tinges of brown. Slightly arched in the head, and strong in the neck, Low set on the ground, wide, and level the heck; And a point I count on as one of the best To be wide through the heart, and deep in the chest, He must have strong legs, standing widely apart, To give room for his lungs, and movement of heart. His back must be short, and his quarters be long'. With a tail well set in, not to dandle along. Broad on the shoulder, and deep in the thigh, Wide on the crown, and bright in the eye. With wool strong and thick, waving down to the ground. Well covered with one class, the body all round. His ribs must be deep, and well arched round. And no spots of black on his wool must be found. His hoofs must be large, and ankles well back, For to give him action which he must not...
Fatalities at North Toolburra. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 April 1901
Fatalities at North Toolburra. A correspondent to the " Australasian (Melbourne) remarks that the recent death of Mr. Charles Swinburne, who was thrown out of his trap and killed within a mile of his home at North Toolburra Station, Queensland, calls to mind that some stations seem fated in respect of tragedies. Mr. Swinburne was a Cambridge man, and married to a daughter of Mr. Davis, head of the Postal Department in New South Wales some years ago. Toolburra was in other hands when Mr. Coutts was killed there by a falling tree. Afterwards young Coutts Rosp and his friend went out shooting on the run, and were found dead, both from gun-shot wounds. Previously Mr. Farquharson, of In vercauld, was killed in the home paddock from a fall from his horse. There have been several other fatal accidents there in the memory of Warwick residents.
Woman's World. SCATTER THE CRUMBS [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 April 1901
llJemara's ZlJorfd. SCATTER THE CRUMBS . All have to spare, none are too poor When want with winter comes. The loaf is never all your own, Then scatter out the crumbs. Soon winter falls upon your life, The day of reckoning comes. Against your sins, by high decree, Are weighed these scattered crumbs. The Teeth.-Tartar consists of carbonate and phosphate of lime, originally contained in solution in the saliva. Becoming separated, it mixes with the mucus of the mouth, is deposit ed first , around the teeth near the gums, and, gradually building up and extending downward around the root, it causes absorption of the gum and bony socket, until the tooth is some times actually loosened by this process. When first deposited, tartar is easily removed by pow der and brush, but, neglected, becomes very hard and requires the help of the dentist with his tools. It even forms on the plates of arti ficial teeth, so that they must be cleaned with powder and brush with the same thoroughness advised ...

Garden Notes for the Darling Downs. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 April 1901
Garden Notes for the Darling Downs. By GEORGE SEARLE, Toowoomba. KITCHEN GARDEN.-This is the best month for sowing the main crop of onions; sow thinly, in drills 15 inches apart Soot and Mr. E. Walpole's Store, Millmerran. wood ashes are good special manures for this crop. Sow ,far succession cauliflower, brocoli, cabbage. Plant out and earth up celery when sufficiently large, choosing dry weathc * for this purpose; see that no soil gets to the hearts ; hill up when full grown. Sow turnips, Swedes, carrots (early horn), parsnips, parsley, lettuce, endive, radish (Coal-black Parisian is the best, growing to a good size, and is crisp and mild). Divide herbs. Plant out shallots, garlic and leeks. FLOWER GARDEN.-Tie up chrysanthe mums, and give liquid manure to roots occasi onally. Seed, as last month, may still be sown. The first planted dahlias will soon be done flowering; when these plants become unsightly take up the tubers and remove to a dry shed. Plant anemonies, ranunculous, lil...
Field, Orcliard and Garden. APRIL. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 April 1901
Field, Orcliard and Garden. APRIL. BY JAS. MITCHELL, Bowen Park. FLOWER GARDEN.-As soon as the early sown annuals are strong enough to handle they should be transferred from the boxes or seed beds into larger beds; the soil should be of a free fibrous nature, not too much sand, as it will leave the roots too readily when final planting has to be done. If new flower beds have to be made, or any other needful altera tions, have them done at once; the ground is now in fine order for working, and there is time to have all alterations! finished before the final planting of winter annuals takes place. Do not plant too close together, it not only spoils the appearance of the beds, but it dimin ishes the chance of single plants making a strong growth, and finishing its flowers in its own true and natural way. Flowers grown close together never have a good or tasteful appearance; most annuals require a space of 2 feet to grow. Nearly all garden plants can be transplanted, divided, and cuttin...

FRIGHTENING CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 April 1901
FRIGHTENING CHILDREN. A great many children have been seriously injured by frights, and the parents themselves are not always blameless in this particular, for they sometimes make threats and tell the youngsters that the dark will get them, or some thing equally wicked or cruel. The result is that they bring up a race of timid, shrinking, cowardly children, who are good for nothing for many of the emergencies of life. If the child is let alone and allowed to grow up in a natural way, it has very little fear of anything; but for the sake of enforcing commands and ex ercising authority, many foolish parents resort to the most questionable practices. They seem to forget that every fear implanted in the mind of a child is just so much of a handicap in the race of life. Disinfectants.-It is true that not all dirt is actually disease-producing; yet all places where dirt accumulates, or where there is any sort of decaying matter, are very likely to act as Breed ing grounds for any disease ...
Home Notes. NONSENSE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 April 1901
NONSENSE. 'Tis pleasant for the flies that fly, And for the bees that be, But there are barques that never bark On seas that never see ; And once a road that couldn't ride, Unfolded to my view, Upon an ash that never gnashed. A crow that never crew. He dreamed of cocks that never coxed, , A crew that never crowed I saw that from my station in The middle of the road. Their incompleteness made him sad, And both should sadden you The cocks that never, never coxed, The crow that never crew. -Barry Pain in " The King."

B. G. WILSON AND CO. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 April 1901
B. G. WILSON AND CO. 3 WING to the heavy rains which have visit ed the various parts of Queensland, especially in the south east, the stock of farm and garden implements held by this firm have had heavy calls, and the new shipments may be said to have arrived in seasonable time. These include all de nominations of garden and field requirements, from the ever-necessary spade and hoe, to deal with. the weeds, to the equally necessary gate latch, the preventive against the predatory in stincts- of the ruminative cow, usually one's neighbour's beast. For mowing a lawn or gar den path a cow may be a fair substitute for a lawn mower, but the latter may be depended upon to attend to the object in view, and not -go walking over the bean, pea, or pansy bed, or to send its teeth among the branches of a favourite fruit tree. Cows range from £4. each in the market, while the lawn mowers at B. G. Wilson and Co.'s are quoted much lower i2in., 25/-;'14m.,*'27/6; i6in., 30/-. Spades, hoes, mattocks...

Answers to Correspondents. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 April 1901
Answers to Correspondents. KILK1VAN.-(i) Any person destroying your stock can be proceeded against by ordinary summons. By-laws are in full force in some localities which give power to appointed per sons to destroy animals declared to be ob noxious, but we hold that such by-laws are , ultra vires in respect to goats, unless com . pensation is given. We would be glad to see the breeding of Angora goats extended, and an export commenced of their valuable . hair, (2) Ticks appeal1 so far not to affect goats to any degree, but as any such irritant is of injury, the animal should be regularly . and thoroughly groomed. This cleansing will . also be of value in improving the growth of hair, and the general health of * the Angora. HANDYMAN (Caboolture).-Cramp in Pigs: Give the pig warm, dry bedding; protect the sleeping place from draughts ; compel the animal to move at least twice a day, and give quite small doses of Epsom salts and bi-car bonate of soda in its food once or twice a day.

Strawberry Culture. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 April 1901
Strawberry Culture. Early planting is most important, so that the plants may become established before the cold weather sets in. By putting in good strong runners in the months of March and April a small crop of fruit may be reckoned upon the following season. On no account plant small, immature, badly rooted runners; these cannot, by any possi bility, make as strong fruiting beds as larger and better-rooted plants would do. It is only by having the very best plants that the largest crops can be grown. If possible, it is better to obtain the runners from plants which have proved fruitful, but it does not always follow that runners from young plants which have failed to crop wall fail likewise. Some varie ties generally fail to fruit the first year, but afterwards produce good crops. The slovenly, careless man will use a dibble in setting his plants, and bundle the roots of the layer in a small hole, but the intelligent grower will know the folly of. this, and will take the trouble t...
