Woman's World. WEAVING LIFE'S WEB. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 13 May 1901

lilometm's lllerfd. WEAVING LIFE'S WEB. Better to weave in the web of life A bright and golden filling, And to do God's will with a ready hand, And with feet that are .swift and willing, Than to break the delicate, minute threads, Of our curious life asunder, And then blame heaven for the tangled ends, And sit and grieve and wonder. Napoleon and Josephine.-It is interesting to turn from novels-the world of romance, where in we would dominate the life of man, and move all the springs of action'-to the real world of history, where we may see as in a faithful glass exactly of what small account we are, " Love, of man's life a thing apart." Napoleon in his exile liked to' talk about his wives and his mistresses. He never loved any of them, except Josephine-a little ; and she, because of her grace and her beauty. He says that after he became Emperor he avoided all women but his wife, because he was susceptible, and feared they would rule him. In this he thinks he made a mistake. If he we...

Have fourteen or fifteen pounds of the brisket of beef, rub it over with common salt, and let it lie for three days, put it in pickle with a heavy weight upon it, and turn it every day ; it will be ready for use in ten days. When you are to boil it, do not soak it in water, put it in a stew-pan and cover with cold water, when it boils, draw it to the side of the fire, and let it boil slowly till the ribs draw out. Have some carrots and greens boiled separately to garnish with, or if you wish it cold, when it is done, take it out of the water, take out all the bones, roll it in a clean cloth, and put a heavy, weight upon it all night. If wanted for break fast, trim it neatly, and garnish with parsley.

Traction Engines. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 13 May 1901

Traction Engines. In a previous issue we mentioned the fact that road engines are commanding more attention by those living in both farming and mining centres, owing to their great value for hauling purposes, and also for other uses which are numerous upon a farm or mine. The Buffalo-Pitt Traction Engine illustrated herewith is a type which has received much notice, owing to their being constructed for working upon the soft roads which are common to thousands of miles of the interior, and are almost always in evidence in a farming district. The engine embodies all the latest improvements and have had embodied in them many suggestions made by Messrs. J. and C. Howard, the well-known farm machinery firm of Sydney, who are the sole agents for Australia and for whom Messrs. Brown and Howard,Roma Street, Brisbane, are the Queens land representatives. The engines are noted for the maximum of strength which is required for long service combined with a minimum of weight. Among others who ar...

DRESSMAKING HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 13 May 1901

DRESSMAKING HINTS. Although no hard and fast rule can be laid down for cutting out. dresses, mantles, etc., I can give the amateur dressmaker many hints which, doubtless, will be useful to her. First, a style should never be selected simply because it is new and the most fashionable, without thought as to its adaptability to the material of which it is to be made, as well as the person by whom it is to be worn. I quite agree with what Bulwer says *n " Pelham " : " Never in your dress altogether desert the taste that is general; every one must keep their dress up to date in some degree, but adapt this or that style so as to combine fashion with beauty." Stripes, for instance, lengthen the figure; therefore, if stripes are fashionable, and a lone;, thin figure requires to' wear them, then they must be broken up, and so trimmed as not to to add to length of figure. As a rule a skirt should be cut without a seam down front, while the front side of the other gores usually go to the selve...

Biographies of their Royal Highnesses. THE DUKE OF CORNWALL AND YORK. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 13 May 1901

Biographies of their Royal Highnesses. THE DUKE OF CORNWALL AND YORK. Within a year and a-half of the birth of the late Duke of Clarence, George Frederick Ernest Albert, Puke of Cornwall and York, first saw the light of day at Marlborough House, on June 3, 1865. Early in the following month he was christened at Windsor with much cere mony. Long before he entered his teens Prince George had shown a love for the sea, and at the early age of 12 his Royal father placed him on board H.M.S. Britannia at Dartmouth, where, as a cadet, he took great pains to fit himself for a career in the Navy. In 1879 it was resolved that the Prince and his brother should take a trip round the world in H.M.S. Bacchante, accompanied by their tutor, the Rev. J. N. Dalton, and the two young " middies " set sail on September 19 of that year, after taking leave of their Royal parents on board the Osborne. The chief events of that memorable cruise are referred to in some detail in another column. It served to op...

LAND SETTLEMENT IN QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 13 May 1901

LAND SETTLEMENT IN QUEENS LAND. During . 1900 the total number of farms selected in the State was 1,971, in area 3,063,113 acres, for which payment to the total amount of £23,711 14s. id. was paid for rent and survey fees. Of the holdings mentioned 656, with an area of 168,666 acres, were taken up as agricultural farms; 753, with an area of 168,666 acres in agricultural homesteads ; 185, with an area of 51,377 acres as unconditional selections ; 305, with an area of 2,269,493 acres as grazing farms; 48, with an area of 301,584 acres as grazing homesteads; and 24, in area 103,327 acres as scrub selections. It will thus be seen that in spite of the continued drought land settlement in Queensland is in excellent favour.

Their Royal Highnesses' Suite. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 13 May 1901

Their Royal Highnesses' Suite. The suite of the Duke and Duchess of York, on their Imperial journey, is variously com posed of members of their permanent house hold, and of lt extras" chosen, for this great occasion only. Never before have the Duke and Duchess had so large a following. It is their first foretaste, on this scale, of the future pomp and circumstance of Royalty. Naturally, the most carefully -considered appointments were those affecting the personal comfort and companionship of the Duchess, who is the worst sailor in the world, and whose dread of the voyage has been the most serious obstacle in the way of its being undertaken at all. Indispensable under these conditions was Lady Mary Lygon (pronounced Liggon) one of her oldest friends, and in " service " with her as Lady-in-Waiting, from the earliest day of her - having a " household " at all. Lady Mary, as everybody knows, is a sister of Earl Beauchamp. The Baby. Prince Henry William Frederick Albert of Cornwall and Y...

H.M.S. "Ophir" [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 13 May 1901

(i IF 99 The s.s. Ophir, chartered from the Orient S.S. Company by the British Government, for the royal visit to Australasia, is one of the finest passenger ships of that Company's mag nificent fleet of vessels. She is registered at 6,910 tons, with an indicated 10,000 horse power. Her measurements are as follows : - 462 feet long, 53 feet 6 inches broad, and 37 feet deep, with a gross register of 6,500 tons, or somewhere about 260,000 cubic feet of in ternal space. She is fitted with twin screws and duplicate engines. Running between these engines is a bulkhead cutting them completely off from each other, and thus rendering each in dependent, so that if one engine-room were filled with water, the other engine would still continue working. The boilers are magnificent specimens of the long power of a great ocean greyhound, being seven in number, each 18 feet in diameter, with furnaces at each end, and working at a pressure of 160 lbs. on the square inch. These seven boilers are divi...

PROVISIONING THE OPHIR. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 13 May 1901

PROVISIONING THE OPHIR. Among the many details of interest connected with the outfitting of His Majesty's ship Ophir far her long cruise, one of the mast important has been, of course, the provisioning of the ves sel, which has been entirely carried out by the victualling department of the Orient Company. Their experience of providing for long voyages is unlimited, suid the Admiralty, having indi cated a little of the personal likings of the Royal travellers, gave to them a free hand in all directions. The scheme, therefore, in the word of one who directed its fulfilment, " may be described as an elaboration of the system usually adapted in the Orient Company's mail service. To such experts, however, it has been a comparatively easy matter, for it is pointed out that the galley, pantry, and serving arrange ments, which, under ordinary circumstances, easily meet the requirements of 180 first-class passengers, will never be called upon to provide for more than 55 at once, this being t...
