SPRAY CALENDAR. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1901

The farmers and fruit growers are in need of short and concise directions for applying sprays to cultivated plants. Although much has been written on the subject of spraying, the information is so scattered that it cannot readily be brought together. In the preparation of this calendar the most important points regard ing sprays have been selected and arranged in such a manner that the grower can see at a glance what to apply and when to make the applications. The more important insect and fungous enemies are also mentioned, so that a fairly clear understanding of the work can be obtained by examining the table below. When making the applications advised, other enemies than those mentioned are also kept under con trol, for only the most serious ones could be named in so brief an outline. The directions given have been carefully compiled from the latest results obtained by leading horticulturists and entomologists, and they may be followed with safety. Notice.-In this calendar it wil...

Fungous Diseases of Plants [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1901

Fungous Diseases of Plants Nearly every plant is subject to the attacks of microscopic foes known as Fungi. These are plants also, differing from those upon which they live in that they are not able to obtain their food from the soil and air. Hence they must find it elsewhere, and to utilize it, they must find it already prepared. Thus, while our crops are drawing from the air and soil the necessary elements for their food, the fungous parasites are stealing this food for their own use. As a result the parts attacked are dis eased, and such diseases we designate by the names of the blight, rot, mildew, etc. On account of the microscopic size of many ftihgi and the fact that only their effects are seeh, many erroneous ideas prevail in regard to them. Thus, our grapes may be apparently healthy, a rain comes, and in the short space of two or three days half of the fruit will be rotten. The grape grower immediately con cludes that the rot was due to the weather, and in this he is partia...

PIGS. Mixed Feed for Pigs. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1901

Mixed Feed for Pigs. It is generally believed that constipation is the cause of sows eating their young pigs, and if so a preventive is better, also cheaper than a cure. Sows properly kept, fed on mixed feeds, with plenty of exercise, are not likely to be con stipated. Feeding sifted wood ashes in slop once a day for a week or so before and after farrowing, is recommended. Feed a large cook spoonful to each matured pig. Also feed a spoonful to each bucketful of slop to growing pigs. It tends to sweeten the stomach and is a very cooling physic. It rids the stomach and intestines of all worms. Plenty of salt and ashes is good for the stock. Horses having free access to it are not liable to colic, and a cow can almost be guaranteed against 'milk fever if physicked lightly before and after calv ing with sifted wood ashes. Feed a single handful in a bran mash or in a mixed ground feed dampened. This- is a safer remedy in the average farmers' hands than to use drugs. There is hardly a far...

CALF-REARING. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1901

CALF-REARING. Without repeating what has -been stated in previous reports on this subject, it may be mentioned that during the present season the only cream substitute that has been used with the separated milk is good cod-liver oil, and the calves are thriving remarkably well. A teaspoonful is added to every 2 quarts of se parated milk. For the first two weeks the calves have new milk; for the next two weeks they get half new and half separated with cod-liver oil, and then new milk is discontinued. At the tenth week the oil is discontinued, and each calf gets 2 gallons of separated milk per day, with good hay and a quarter of a pound of linseed cake; the cake is gradually in creased to half a pound per day, and crushed oats are added later on as the separated milk is reduced from two drinks to one per day, and finally discontinued altogether. The Cow's Udder.-The process of milk secretion is one of the most wonderful opera tions in all nature. The cow's udder or " bag " is a gland,...

THE TRYST. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1901

THE TRYST. Potato was deep in the dark underground, Tomato above in the light, ' ? , The little tomato was ruddy and round, The little potato was white. And redder and redder she rounded above, And paler and paler he grew; And neither suspected a mutual love, Till they met in a Irish stew. Farmers who keep but a few common fowls for eggs and poultry would find it to their advantage to breed from a pure bred male. The best kind for this purpose to suit those who wish to combine plenty of eggs with good plump carcass, is the Dorking or the Lang shan; the Plymouth and Wyandotte also ans wer where yellow eggs and. skin are desired. Where eggs are the principal object, the Minorca will produce the desired effect. The Leghorn or Hamburg varieties would also ans wer, but the Minorca is to be preferred, having the advantage of the other breeds in size and laying qualities. The Houdan male mated to common pullets, produces chicks that at ma: turity average larger than either parent, with goo...

Farm Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1901

Each thing in Nature keeps this law, The smallest plant abides its date And summer's heat, suid winter's flaw, And storm, and calm, their season " wait." This is the law that rules our lot, And holds the whole of human fate; He conquers who has force to strive, And equal patience has--to " wait." A Handy Colic Draught-A colic drench which every horse owner should keep by him for use in case of emergency is made up of i oz. of spirits of nitrous ether, i oz. of aromatic spirits of ammonia, and i oz. of tincture of ginger, dissolved in a pint of water. Two tablespoonfuls of this should be given in two glasses of water, and repeated every half hour until the animal has obtained relief. Another excellent colic draught, which can be readily obtained at many places where the foregoing chemicals might not be forth coming, is made up of two glasses of brandy or whisky and \ oz. of ground ginger, given in a pint of water. Horse owners require to exercise consider able caution in regard to th...

BUSH-HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1901

BUSH-HOUSE. Continue to keep the plants uniformly watered as last month. Cinerarias and Primu las should be in the brightest corners of the bushhouse, well sheltered from West winds, and raised on benches or platform, failing this stand the plants on inverted pots. If altera tions are to be done to the rockeries or new rockeries made, this is the best month; ferns or any plants becoming too' large in the rockeries should be forked out or trimmed back to the square or corner allotted to them. A little fresh soil with some fertilizer will be beneficial. In forking be careful of the roots of Begonias. Feed liberally with well-rotted stable manure. Clear away all decayed leaves. The end of the month will be soon enough to start re-potting. Do not re-pot Adiantum ferns until they make a fresh start into growth; Achimenes, Gloxinias", and Tydeas may be re potted and allowed to start slowly. Do not touch the Caladiums. Look over all tubers, as they are liable to root, at this season. Now i...

The D«fcy. The Cow. When times are hard, as times are yet, And cash is scarce and hard to get; When but little money can be made, And debts and taxes must be paid: To help us out, we must allow, There's nothing like the good old cow; The gentle cow, the honest cow All honour to the good old cow. Deal gently with the good old cow And treat her as well as you know how; Don't chase her round with clubs and noise, Don't worry her with dogs and boys, Don't pound her with your stool and swear, But treat her gently and with care: Speak kindly to her as you would Your lady love in gentlest mood; Caress and pet her day by day, Feed her with meal and roots and hay, Give her good feed and feed her well, For good feed in the pail will tell. Do this and she will seldom fail With foaming milk to fill the pail. Shell pay you well for all you do, And greet you with a pleasant " moo." Wells.

FRUIT GARDEN. If the pruning has not been attended to the sooner this work is done the better, also the planting of fruit trees, as it is not good to plant too late in the season. The plants will soon be making rootlets, which are sure to be broken off by late planting. This is a good time to graft oranges,. pears, apples, peaches, nectarines, persimmons, apricots, custard apples, etc. Clear all vacant ground. Keep the weeds down. Push on with trenching, draining, and all the heaviest work while the weather is cold

Serving Cows. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1901

Serving Cows. There are two objections to service imme diately after parturition-it works the cow too hard, and probably shortens her days and ages her prematurely, to be constantly carrying calves and producing two within a period of a year; and it shortens the milking period, and therefore reduces the gross yield,1 to have her in-calf again shortly after she has produced a calf. On the other hand, experience goes to show that if the first period of oestrum after parturition, is permitted to pass without service it may not recur again, or there may be so long an interval that the business arrangements are upset in this way, and the cow has to be kept for a long time doing nothing but carry ing a calf, because she has run dry, or become practically milked out, before she appears in season or is effectively served again. The cow and sheep, and it is believed the mare, will copulate with greater certainty of success on the ninth day after parturition than at any other time, and it is ...

The Cow's Udder. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1901

The Cow's Udder. The higher and finer the nervous organism of the cow, the more solids she will be likely to secrete, and the more quickly she will respond to either good treatment or abuse. But what, it may be asked, does the udder do ? Milk is not simply filtered blood. The udder does more than sift or screen the milk out of the blood. It is believed that the water, the sugar, the ash, and a part of the casein are filtered directly A Home-Made Wheelbarrow. from the blood. The fat of the milk is pro- duced in the udder. It is really made up of very small parts of the cow herself, broken off in small cells, and mixed with the milk. The rest of the casein is also made in the udder. Thus it will be seen that the sugar, the ash, and part of the casein are dissolved in the water, while the fat floats about therein in fine particles. It might be compared with muddy water, which is "muddy," because very fine   grains of soil are floating about in it. The udder is not a great ...

A Sweetheart of the Old Days. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1901

A Sweetheart of the Old Days. (By Everett Holbrook.) Owen Curtis took his hat from the rack in the hall, and in so doing saw his face reflected in the round mirror. He remained for some seconds staring at the image, and then he turned away with a shudder. " This thing is telling on me,'7 he mut tered. "I'm not built for.it.. I haven't the nerve." The air without was warm and sweet Cur tis beheld the familiar beauties of the. trees and inhaled the delicious odour of the breath of May. He could remember when he had felt akin to all this peace and harmony, but that seemed long ago. It was very still, except for the faint sound of far-away drums heralding the, ceremonies of Memorial Day. Then in the southern cham ber Alice began to sing, and presently she looked out of the window, checking her song and calling to him cheerily. Curtis replied he. knew "not what ; it was scarcely articulate. He stood there, with clenched hands, the nails biting into the palms. " I can't lose her; I can't ...
