A COLOSSAL WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 21 May 1900

A COLOSSAL WORK. " The Ninth Edition of the Encyclopaedia Britannica is the standard international work of reference. Neither in the English language, nor in any other language, has there ever been attempted a work of such magnitude or of such thoroughness." It was not until 1889 that the present edi tion of the Encyclopaedia Britannica was com- . pleted, although the first volume was pub lished in 1875, and the twelfth volume-half way on he road-appeared in 1881. The elaboration with which the articles were writ ten, the scrupulous care with which they were revised, the minute labour expended in bring ing the typrography and the illustrations of the volumes to the highest point of accuracy, all combined to make this the greatest i:tfT<n v production of the age. The Encyclopaedia Britannica (Ninth Edi tion) consists of 24 volumes, of about 850 pages each, and of a 25th volume, containing an elaborate index to the whole, and a de tailed list of all the contributors.

American Cream Gathering Rules. These rules may be made to apply to either whole milk or gathered cream creameries: Feeding-We insist upon only such food being fed to cows as will produce the largest and best quality of milk or cream. Turnips, onions, cabbage, or anything likely to injure the quality of milk, cream or butter is pro hibited. Milking-Cows must be carefully cleaned before milking to avoid odors that taint the milk.

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

The Dafry Dairymen, -Factory Managers, Secretaries, etc., are invited to contribute items of interest for this section of the paper. All questions affecting their interests submitted to the Editor will be answered promptly under head of J "Answers to Correspondents." < i Do not allow your cows to drink any water that you would not partake of yourself. You would not relish the milk if you could ex amine this water under a microscope, which they get in many of the stagnant pools of water. Fence the pools off or clean them out every two years. Thousands and thousands of pounds have been lost by allowing the cows to drink water which was unfit for their use; this was lost by having an inferior grade of butter . THE DAIRY.- Continued. The buttermaker may be ever so skillful in handling the inilk or cream, but if the farmer neglects his part of the work, then all of this skill which the buttermaker commands will amount to nothing.

THE POSITION OF THE CENTRAL SUGAR MILLS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 21 May 1900

THE POSITION OF THE CENTRAL SUGAR MILLS. Under the Queensland Sugar Works Guar antee Act of 1893 now in force there have been eleven mills erected in different parts of the colony, in addition to two at Mackay, which were the first to be erected with the help of a loan from the Government, viz.: The North Eton and the Racecourse Mills. These have during their existence met with both good and bad fortune, but taking one season with another they must be put down as successes, seeing that the principal number have repaid their annual indebtedness. Of the mills under the Sugar Works Guarantee Act, some have had a chequered career, and cannot be said by any means to be out of the wood in respect to finances. Two have so far fallen into the hands of the Government. These are the Moreton Central Mill, at Nam bour, and the Proserpine Mill, near Bowen. The causes which led to their being taken over by the Department of Agriculture are not far to seek. Frost, flood, drought, and the heavy dem...

The New Brands Act. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 21 May 1900

The New Brands Act. Two heifers branded and earmarked under the new Brands Act were on view at the Beau desert Show on May nth. These animals are probably the first that have been marked with registered symbol brands and plier earmarks in Queensland, as the Act is only just coming into use. They came from Tamrookum, and were branded by Mr. R. M. Collins, who it may be remember ed, was chairman of the Parliamentary Select Committee, appointed August 3rd, 1897, whose report was adopted by the House, and became the basis of the Act which was passed without serious opposition. The new Act amends the excellent 1872 Act, not by repealing any of its provisions, but by extending them and by upplying certain defects of the old measures. These defects may be briefly alluded to : - (1) Brands once allotted could not after wards be re-allotted, and it was very difficult even to cancel a brand; the consequence is that the Brands Directory contains many thousands of brands which are no longer in ...

Our contem poraries, the country press, appear not to have recovered sufficiently yet to deal with the matter. That such an important appointment has not been made by the Cabinet except tor some good and sufficient reason can be well understood, and the appointment augurs a re organisation of the Department of Agricul ture, of which rumours have been rife for some considerable time. Mr. McDermot will have scope in this regard for his well-known organising abilities.

GYMPIE HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 21 May 1900

GYMPIE HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY SHOW. A chrysanthemum and canary show is rather a departure-and an uncommon combination -for an horticultural society, but it has be come an annual treat upon Gympie, and is looked forward to by a considerable section of the residents of that mining town. " At the show held on May 6 and 7 there were several chrysanthemum exhibits from Brisbane and Maryborough staged, Mr. J. S. Bartholomew, of Maryborough, securing the district prize, Mr. Keneally coming second, and Mr. Davis third, all, however, being close matched. A magnificent yellow Modesto chrysanthemum exhibited by Mr. J. Davis was the champion bloom of the show, although Mr. Bartholomew followed close with an H. M. Stanley bloom. The exhibit of Mrs. Laird of three magnificent blooms received well deserved attention. The canaries enliven ed the . proceedings considerably, making the drill-shed where the show was held resound with their bright chirruping. The principal prize was awarded to Mr. P. Da...

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

BEAUDESERT SHOW. The exhibition of farm produce and live stock held under the auspices of the Logan and Albert A. and P. Society on May n was visited by a large number of the immediate residents, and many from the city, including the Governor (Lord Lamington), who went down specially to open the show; the Hon. J. V. Chataway, Minister for Agriculture; Mr. G. Grimes, member for Oxley; F. M. Han nington, Mr. Reid (J. C. Hutton), Mr. H. Baynes (Baynes Bros.), and many other pro minent citizens. The farm produce was not in great variety, but those exhibitors who en tered are to be distincly commended not only for their aid in making this section of interest, but also for the excellence of their exhibits. The judges of the live stock had considerable trouble in deciding upon their awards, the various animals showing such a uniform excel lence, one pen of prime bullocks from R. M. Collins and Son, Tamrookum, coming in far special notice. The dairy cattle were in every sense a credit to th...

Fatulent Colic, Windy Colic. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 21 May 1900

flatulent Colic, Windy Colic. ETC.-The horse is uneasy, hangs the head, and exhibits a few of the general symptoms of spasmodic colic before there is any enlarge ment of the belly; but more particularly after, for as soon as the belly swells the pawing com mences, although it is not so violent as in spasmodic colic. There is but little rolling or kicking at the belly as in spasmodic colic, and the horse is not inclined to move about much. After from one to four days the belly becomes much in creased in size (if the disease is not checked), and the animal becomes restless. Treatment.-Do not bleed for flatulent colic. Try an injection first, and if gas or wind come away with it, the patient will most likely re cover soon; but if no benefit is derived from the injection, give the remedies as recommend ed for spasmodic colic. Let the horse be led around quietly until the medicine has had time to take effect, so as to prevent his falling or rolling, as it might cause rupture of the diaph...

Management and Care in Sickness. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 21 May 1900

JSanagement and Care in Sickness. The use to which man has put the noble horse is to blame for most of his diseases. In his native state the diseases which we find so troublesome axe entirely unknown. The sooner sickness is recognised and the proper remedies used, the sooner the animal will be restored to health. But to recognise disease it is < b viously necessary to know the animal when well. If nothing is known regarding the :k'Ju ral pulse, how can one expect to know whether the heart beats regularly and natur*1 or not. Study the condition of the animal in health as to pulse, number of respirations, color and quantity of the excretions, and remember if these change there has come a time to be specially observant of the actions of the animal so as to determine the cause. Should these changes be the result of disease, determine its nature and be governed accordingly. A quick; recognition of the ailment and promptness in treatment will the sooner restore health and less ...

AGRICULTURE FARM PRODUCE MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 21 May 1900

FARM PRODUCE MARKETS. The markets in cereals during the past month have been very active. The supply in the main lines have been sufficient to meet requirements without leaving an overplus. Prices show a small decline from the earlier quotations, due no doubt to the welcome rains which have been general throughout the farm ing centres. This decline, however, has been but nominal, and we consider also but of a temporary nature, as the demand in the tar western country is likely to continue, and the commencement of crushing operations in the sugar centres will prevent any glut. Some excellent . samples of new potatoes are coming forward. The opening prices were 3s. to 5s., according to sample. During the winter months the best quality of fruits are only in demand; these realise fair prices except in oranges. These, as we pre dicted in our last month's issue, are in large supply. Reports from the strawberry centres are to the effect that a small crop only is ex pected this season. Quot...
