Woman's World. A BACHELOR GIRL. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1901

I&omoKi'g Qjorfd. A BACHELOR GIRL. Oh, you bachelor men! You again and again Put our little maidl-hearts in a whirl; But, with all you may do And for all you may sue, You've no chance with the bachelor girl. I'm a bachelor girl, With my fore-locks in curl You may woo and may sue as you may, I'm contented to tarry Before I shall marry, For a bachelor girl I will slay. But you need not despair, As a girl I am there; So my angel-wings now I'll unfurl. Will this suit you and me ? I'm a Vassar A. B. That's why I'm a bachelor girl. -" Leslie's Weekly." Rules of Sleep.-Dr. Forbes Winslow wisely says there is no fact more clearly established in the physiology of man than this, that the brain expends its energies and itself during the hours of wakefulness, and that these are recuperated' during sleep. If the recuperation does not equal the expenditure, the brain withers-this is insanity. Thus it is that, in early English History, persons who were con demned to death by being prevente...

Gympie A.M. and I. Society. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1901

Gympie A.M. and I. Society. The annual Show at Gympie this year, under the auspices of the above Society, was held on August 28th and 29th, under most favourable conditions, the weather on the opening day being in strong contrast to that experienced in Gympie last year. The at tendance on the first day was highly satis factory, and the second day produced a re cord attendance of over 5,000 people. The entries in the majority of the classes were very numerous, the only sections suffering in this respect being the sheep and dairy cattle, the entries for which were very small. The Show was formally declared open by the Hon. J. Murray, M.L.C., in the presence of a thoroughly representative gathering, which in cluded the Hon. F. I. Power, M.L.C., and Messrs. Ryland and Mulcahy, MM.L.A. Amongst the exhibits we noticed a splendid trophy of the Palm woods Jam Company. Messrs. J.

DUST OR SOIL MULCH. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1901

DUST OR SOIL MULCH. The object of mulching is to keep the soil cool and moist, the ground free from weeds, and the roots from frost in winter, where hard frosts prevail. Charcoal dust is a capital mulch, but it is tooi expensive on any con siderable scale. Many garden fruits and vege tables may be mulched with great advantage, strawberry beds amongst the rest. One of the effects of mulching is to> prevent evaporation of the soil moisture; not by shutting in the moisture, but by preventing its escape. If the soil in a garden or field is allowed to bake on the top, forming a hard crust, the evapora tion of water will be rapid as it continues the process of capillary attraction which carries the moisture in the soil up to> the surface to be dispersed into the atmosphere. If the surface, however, be well stirred and pulver ised, it acts like a mulch, and the moisture can not rise through it, but is kept in the soil. The dust mulch in a garden should be stirred pretty often, and it...

TO FRIGHTEN CROWS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1901

TO FRIGHTEN CROWS. M. Brunei, director of one of the French schools of agriculture, draws attention to a very successful plan for keeping off crows from attacking newly sown wheat fields. The cost ranges from is. 6d. to 2s. 6d. per acre. Rods are placed in the soil one yard high, 70 yards apart, and the runs all zigzag, 22 yards asunder. A very fine twine connects all the sticks. The Crows arrive, but, being very sus picious, do not alight on the field, but, after hover ing* go elsewhere. The plan is now being adopted by many farmers in France. The safest method to adopt in winter time is to set a hen in a shed, not out in the open, because then she will have better protection, which is very necessary, for it must be borne in mind that when a hen is sitting, there is not so free a circulation of her blood as there is when she is out at liberty; consequently the cold penetrating from the outer air into an ordinary sitting-box and run will prove too much for her, and we have on more t...

A SHEPHERD DOG'S EARS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1901

A SHEPHERD DOG'S EARS. Deafness is not uncommon in dogs, espec ially in some breeds, though frequent in white animals, such as bull-dogs and bull-terriers. It may be associated with congenital want of development of the auditory nervous apparatus, or arise from senile changes, from blocking up of the auditory canal as the result of disease, as from turgescence caused by inflammation, and from the growth of tumours or polypi. It is sometimes a sequel to canker, and may be so in your case, but one of the things a dog suffering from canker of the internal ear does not like is to have his ears rubbed. He scratches, shakes, and! rubs them himself, gen erally to the extent of rendering the external ear raw and sore, but is never willing for any one else to touch them, and generally sets up a howl when an attempt is made to do so. In view of the pleasure afforded by rubbing the ears, the more likely explanation is that the trouble is due to auricular acariasis. This is caused by invasion o...

A POINT IN TRAINING THE COLT. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1901

A POINT IN TRAINING THE COLT. It is a bad habit to keep the colt standing in the stable for several days with no exercise, and them hitch him to something scary, just at the time he cannot be worked to anything with any satisfaction. Turn him out and let him stretch his legs and work off some of the sur plus steam, and the change for the better will be like magic. It is a good idea to take the opportunity when he is somewhat worked down in spirits to hitch him to such things. Then he will not be likely to give any serious trouble, and after a lesson or two in this con dition it will be comparatively safe to hitch him up when irii pretty high spirits.
