CHILBLAIN LINIMENT. This will allay the itching, burning sensa tion, and by proper care effect a cure. 1 ounce of Liquor of Subacetate of Lead. 2 ounces of Spirits of Camphor. Mix thoroughly and apply at least four times a day. Common Emetic.-An emetic that can be obtained at a moment's notice is sometimes essential. This may be obtained at almost any home and is a reliable emetic; 2 teaspoonfuis of common salt; 2 teaspoonfuis mustard; 1 glass of warm water. Drink all the stomach wili take. Poultices.-These are generally made of sub stances that will take up and hold large quanti ties of water, and retain a soft condition. Their power to cure depends upon the heat retained by the poultice and the liquids with which they are mixed. Milk will not evaporate as quickly as water. Glycerine added to a poultice will aid in keeping it soft. A lay6r of mosquito netting between the poultice and the skin will; keep the mass together so that there will be no trouble in changing the poultices wh...
HIRE PURCHASE SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 July 1901
HIRE PURCHASE SYSTEM. The hire-purchase system has made rapid strides in recent years, and on the face of it, it appears such an easy way of obtaining some thing a man wants, but for which he cannot pay ready money, that an increasing number of people take advantage of it. But the intending hire-purchaser should care fully read over and well weigh every clause in the agreement before putting his hand to it. In the majority of cases the agreement is so drawn that no property vests in the hirer until the last payment is made, and the dealer has power to re-taJce possession on breach of anv of the numerous conditions. It is a great hard ship if, after paying all but the last one or two instalments, the hirer should lose both goods and past payments through failure to pay, or through some other breach of the conditions. It is a contingency to which very many hirers are exposed, and we repeat that people cannot be too careful in acquiring a thorough under standing of the nature of the ag...
WOMEN'S VANITY. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 July 1901
WOMEN'S VANITY. The vanity of women has been the subject of. much ridicule on the part of the sterner sex, who appear to forget, when they are throwing stones of this character, that they themselves are not altogether without flaws. In fact, though little is" said abo&lt;ut it, a man is quite as vain as a woman. The mirror in a sshop win dow is as irresistably attractive to a man as to a woman, and it is not always the youngest and best-dressed men either who seem to ex tract considerable enjoyment in regarding their own reflection. Wherever a mirror is to be seen, there will be, if you will but notice it, men who cannot resist gazing into it; and though it may sound like a sweeping assertion there are far more pocket-mirrors carried by men than by women. Perhaps, after all, it is not vantiy that prompts both men and women to scan their images so carefully whenever the opportunity is offered for so doing; it may be the innate desire to detect faults, if there are any, and re...
GROWING OLD BEAUTIFULLY. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 July 1901
GROWING OLD BEAUTIFULLY. To women the loss of beauty is so sharp a trial, the change from the grace and slenderness of girlhood so severe a discipline, that there is commonly a touch of acrimony in the phrase with which she sets aside some pet decoration or some fashion which it would be ridiculous to assume. Unless she can put all this away and1 take in their place the sweet calmness of later life to render her face lovely and lovable, and1 for the rose that has faded on her cheek can substitute that smile which some women wear who have con quered and found peace in their victory, she will lose that rarest beauty, that charm, which no one can resist, which comes with happy old age. When a good and clever woman has reached that beautiful fableland of life from which she can look over the many battles on its plains, and yet feel sure that life is worth living, and men and women worth loving, she has nothing to envy in those beginning the struggle. To learn the use of gentle regular e...
Woman's World. WINTER. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 July 1901
TtfomanV llJorfd. WINTER. We scarcely knew the year so fair had been In all its bright array, Until a million fluttering flakes were seen O'er wood and meadow way. We scarcely thought its songs had been so sweet So full of rapturous sound, Until one day there came the last slow beat Of pinions southward bound; And one late purple violet that gleamed From the snow-drifted way, Fairer than all the wealth of blossoms seemed That strewed the fields of May. Tis ever thus; the charm of summer hours More strangely potent seems When all in vain we sigh for song and flowers And lisp of meadow streams. The Present wears a beauty all unknown Until too late, at last, We wondering look to find its moments flown Into the silent Past. -Alice Jean Cleator, Ohio.

Recipes. South American Gumbos. GUMBO FILL. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 July 1901
Reci pes. South American Gumbos. GUMBO FILL One old chicken, cut into joints and bits, the bones broken, the head and legs omitted. One dozen large oysters with their liquor. Three large slices of unboiled ham. , Half a large onion cut into slices. A bunch of sweet herbs tied in muslin. A carrot sliced small. Four cloves. Half a dozen allspice. Three pieces of mace. A pinch of nutmeg tied in muslin. Two-thirds of a teaspoonful of salt, more if the ham has been boiled before putting it in. A pinch of cayenne pepper. A little more than a pinch of white pepper.

GUMBO DES HERBES [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 July 1901
GUMBO DES HERBES Gumbo des Herbes is made without meat, but oysters and their liquor are added before it is served. Every vegetable in season is put into it-corn, celery, a head of lettuce, leeks, some young onions, asparagus cut into bits, egg-plant, beans, peas, cucumbers, okra, cauli flower, half a lemon-all sliced and boiled until it is a thick puree. Drain part of the vegetables off and serve with rice. It is better for a cup of stock made from turkey and chicken bones with a little veal. Alum Baking Powders.--The Professor of Chemistry of Princeton University (Profesior Cornwall) says that Alum baking-powders exert an injurious effect on digestion. Since this fact seems to him to be well established, he denounces the use of alum baking-powders in the preparation of food as altogether objection able. Professor Tucker, of the Albany Medical College, chemist to the New,. York State Board of Health, claims tH^t the alum baking-powders are decidedly injurious &s constituent...

Field, Garden and Faro Notes. JULY. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 July 1901
Field, Garden and Faro Notes. JULY. By JAS. MITCHELL, Bowen Park. Flower Garden.-During this and next month, while the weather is cool, is the best to attend to any heavy work that has to be done, such as leveling, wheeling, trenching, draining, altering walks, or forming new beds. Keep all corners and beds clean, free from weeds. Stir the soil up occasionally, between the grow ing annuals, especially after rain or watering, as the soil becomes caked and prevents the air and moisture from reaching the roots of the plants. Shrubs may be pruned back and worked into shape. Trees may be topped that are growing too tall, or blocking the way. Transplant roses and shrubs that are not too tropical; keep the tropical plants until October or November. Attend to the staking of all plants requiring support, such Liliums, Glad iolus, and all heavy or large-growing annuals. Keep the roses clean and pinch them back, and tie up as recommended last month; if not already done, a strong jet from the h...

Home Notes. OUR LITTLE TENANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 July 1901
OUR LITTLE TENANTS. Two busy little songsters came About our house one day; They had such pretty, loving ways, We could but bid them stay. Upon a shelf, above our door, They wished to build a nest, And when they found we welcomed them They worked their very best. In just two1 weeks the nest was made, And five wee eggs were there; In two weeks more five hungry birds Claimed all their parents' care. They fed them, kept them snug and warm, And taught them how to fly; In two weeks more our tenants left, And never said 11 Godd-bye." When springtime and the birds come back Well look for them again Our merry, busy, pretty guests, Mr. and Mrs. Wren. S. E. H., Colo.
Bowen Park. The Acclimatisation Society of Queensland's Grounds, Bowen Bridge Road, Brisbane. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 12 July 1901
Bowen Park. The Acclimatisation Society of Queensland's Grounds, Bowen Bridge Road, Brisbane. BY GRAPHITE. 1*HE outside appearance of the Park is not attractive, a rough split paling fence built above the shaley rock which crops out alongside the foot path, being in strong contrast to the white fence and neat buildings of the General Hospital opposite. An idea of the sylvan pleasance beyond, is only obtained from the outside of the Park by the glimpses of leafy branches of numerous trees foreign to this State which overhang the road. The small wicket gate at the Bowen Bridge Road entrance scarcely warns one of the beauty beyond. And it is beautiful, especially when seen at mid - day, after some welcome shower has washed the leaves of the myriad trees which line the side walks and overhang the paths, which radiate in all directions about this lovely spot. The gravel walk from this entrance is arched over with two giant bones, taking the memory back to the early whaling days of Moreto...

Field, Garden and Farm Notes. AUGUST. FLOWER GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1901
Field, Garden and Farm Notes. AUGUST. (BY JAS. MITCHELL, Bowera Park.) FLOWER GARDEN. Very little is to be done beyond keeping the weeds in check, and preventing the soil from hardening or caking on the surface round the tender winter annuals. A liberal supply of liquid manure may be applied to Fuchsias, Cinararias, Pansies, Ranunculus, Sweet Peas, Hollyhocks, etc. All winter flowering plants, especially annuals, will be greatly benefited, and their flowering season prolonged by the addition- of some fertilizer during this month. If it is too much to pre pare the liquid manure, fork in a little bone dust phosphates, guano, or blood manure. Newly planted roses should have a fair supply of moisture, but on no* account soak the soil like a puddle; roses thus treated in winter generally die off in summer. If any planting or transplanting has to be done the sooner this work is finished the better as the season is getting tooi advanced. The more tropical plants should be deferred till abo...
