Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 April 1901

To Farmers and Pig Growers Generally. NOW that PIG RAISING is becoming an important part of Farmers' work, it is desirable that they should have a clear idea of what class of MEAT is required by the MANUFACTURER. In all parts of the World, and in this Colony in particular, the demand is only for LEAN MEDIUM-SIZED BACON. By LEAN BACON, we mean that a large amount of LEAN, STREAKY MEAT must predominate. To get this, Farmers must give more attention to their Breed of PIGS; the common ill-bred swine, which give so much fat, must be dispensed with. As bacon-curers, we recommend the medium BERKSHIRE PIG, which, properly fed, will, at 7 months old, produce the class of BACON we desire. In order to enable Farmers to secure this breed, we have established a stud at our farm at Zillmere, and growers desiring to improve their stock will kindly communicate with us, and we will be pleased to furnish all par ticulars as to price.

PIGS. Hand-rearing of Little Pigs. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 April 1901

Hand "rearing of Little Pigs. With the exception of puppies, no animals are so difficult to rear by hand as little pigs. In my opinion, arrived at after personal triai. and noting the failures of others, about the besl thing to do when a sow has died in farrowing or shortly afterwards, is to knock the little pi on the head and bury them in the same ^rave as their mother. It is the advice I generally give to the owner of a dead sow, but it is rare ly relished unless he has had experience. He thinks it rough on the little pigs, and a great waste of pork, and, encouraged by the success attending similar efforts in the case of caives and lambs, and perhaps a foal, he wants to try; but if such a misfortune overtakes him a second time, he generally needs very little per suading to sacrifice the pigs at once, as being in the end the most economical proceeding. If circumstances, such as special value in regard to breed, render an attempt at hand-rearing de sirable, the little ones should ha...

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

ALLORA. STILL travelling over the Downs, past corn fields and tasselled maize, Hendon Station is reached at 10 miles, where a branch line built under a guarantee from the Local Authority, goes on to Allora. The latter can be seen three miles across the plains, nestling at the foot of the range on Dairymple Creek, a tributary of the Condamine River. Allora is one of the oldest townships on the Downs, hav- ing been laid out by the N.S.W. Government before Separation, and has been a municipal town since 1869. Mr. Francis Kates, now M.L.A., for the district, was the first Mayor, a position he has occupied on eight different oc- casions. He also built the first flour mill there, in 1871, the same being destroyed by fire in 1893, but has since been rebuilt. The other one, Messrs. Kennedy Bros.' mill, was erected in 1891. There are four churches, with two resident clergymen, and a Salvation Army bar- racks. The several clubs and societies are in a good position. These include the Central D...

How to Make Manna Porridge. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 13 May 1901

How to Make Manna Porridge. Take one pint of Meal, sprinkle it lightly into three pints of BOILING water. Should lumps occur, break them at the side of the vessel with a wooden spoon. Stir until it thickens, then let it simmer for twenty minutes, when it is ready for use. Salt to be added to taste. The MANNA is a rare delicacy if boiled in milk. A plate of MANNA is a good and wholesome breakfast, and a wonderfully cheap one. It is made by a secret pro cess from specially selected Egyptian grains.

Lockyer Agricultural and Industrial Society. THE TWELFTH ANNUAL EXHIBITION Will be held at LAIDLEY on Tuesday and Wednesday, 14th and 15th MAY. The alteration of date from July to May is entirely due to the wish of the Committee to fall into line and help the Natirnal Association and the Brisbane people to give a Royal Welcome to the Royal Visitors, by bringing down a collection of Lockver products, which could not have been done if our own show was deferred to July. The Committee are therefore entitled to the consideration of our city friends. Entries Close on May 4th. The show is expected to be above the average, the season beinf? now propitious. Trains will run at single fare for the double journey. The College stock will be well represented. J. FIELDING, Secretary, Laidley,

RECIPES... Two Ways of Making Graham Bread. Dr. Kuhne's Method. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 13 May 1901

$ w RECIPES. . . Two Ways of Making Graham Bread. Dr. Kuhne's Method. Take 5J lbs. Graham Flour in a pan, pour over it about 1£ quarts (2 wine quarts) of cold water, and mix thoroughly. I consider cold water preferable to warm, as experience shows that warm water sets the Bread in fermentation more readily than cold, and this may render the Bread somewhat lighter but less nutritious and j>leasant to the taste. Now divide the dough into three or four equal parts, mould a loaf of each, lay each upon a dry plate, sprinkled with Graham Flour, wet the loaves well on the top with water, and place each with its plate upon an empty flower pot in a quick stove or brick-oven. No other articles or pots should stand in the oven at the same time. The heat in the oven must be kept up by a steady fire, and should not be immediately intense. In half an hour, during whicn the oven must not be opened, turn the front side of the loaves to the back. A quarter of an hour later, see whether the upper ...

Notes Month. The Treasury Returns. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 13 May 1901

The Treasury Returns. The Treasury returns are always interesting. One seems to have a hand on the pulse of the State in con templating the cold figures which show our fluctuations in trade and production. The Customs returns are still under the figures of the corresponding month of last year, and so are those of railways; but in the latter the Southern and Western line is improving, the receipts for last month being ,£59,802, as against .£59,554 for April, 1900. The railway expenditure was ^£1,622 higher than for the corresponding term in 1900, and that is a considerable improve ment on the position for some months past. It shows that the unprofitable work of carrying stock from the drought-stricken districts is at an end. The summary of revenue and expendi ture for the ten months ending 30th April shows that the balance, as far as the actual operations of the State are concerned, is on the right side. The expenditure has been j£3>358>°95> and the revenue «£3>5°3>294...

SAFE WAGERS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 13 May 1901

SAFE WAGERS. Few runners, if any, can afford to give that start to any man who is at all strong. For the first five yards or so they go at practically the same pace, so that to run ninety-five yards while his opponent is hopping forty-five, he has to go more than twice as fast, and it is a weak man indeed who cannot hop fifty yards in ten seconds. An ordinary wooden match is easily broken in the fingers; but, although there are many who will bet they can do it, none succeed in accomplishing the task if the match is laid across the nail of the middle finger of either hand and pressed upon by the first and third finger of that hand, despite it seeming so easy at first sight. Another equally certain wager is that a man cannot stand at the side of a room with both his feet touching the wainscoating lengthwise. It is safe to bet any man, save one who is blind, that he cannot stand for five minutes without moving if he is blindfolded. A Selector s Temporary Home, River Jordan, Jericho.

Maud, a Cow. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 13 May 1901

Maud, a Cow There's a cow round our selection, And we always call her Maud, 'Cause she " comes into the garden" Of her very own accord. And she chews the blooming balsams ('Tis not slang as you believe) And her impudence is something Truly awful to perceive. She demolishes the Banksia, She consumes the Marshal Niel; On the lilies and the sunflowers Doth she make a midnight meal. And her smile is that sarcastic, That we wouldn't even hint At the language we have uttered, For it's quite unfit to print! There is not a lock invented, Not a bolt and not a screw, This felonious marauder Couldn't manage to undo. And the only consolation That we now have left to hug, Is, she don't come in the drawing And camp upon the rug. A. GOODGE. My name is A. Bacteria, This heat agrees with me, Just let me work inside your milk Some muggy day and see, While other workers drop their tools, And look around for shade, I peel my coat and go to work, For that's the way I'm made. I sour the milk, I spoil the...
