THE GULGONG SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 February 1906
THE CULOONC SHOW. The Gulgong 'Advertiser' announces that it has been determined to abandon the Gulgong Show for 1906. The reason given for the abandonment is a general failure of the fruit crop and the absence of feed for stock from which the majority of exhibits were drawn. Adverse weather conditions have produced this result — drought, late frosts, and high winds hav ing wrought havoc in the district. The Gulgong folk have our sympathy. \v^i* them we hope next year will furnish full compensation.
A Simple Trap. To the Editor "The Farmer and Settler." [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 February 1906
A Simple Trap. To the Editor 'The Farmer and Settler.' Sir, — I ask space to suggest to land holders in the rabbit-infested districts that they might with advantage use their cultivated land — when enclosed in a rab bit-proof fence of any kind — as a decoy for rabbits, by making one or more small rabbit-proof trap-yards within each boun dary of the cultivation fence, and provid ing a small hollow log for each yard by which the rabbits could enter, the inner end of the log being chamfered off, and fitted with a light wire grid-iron gate, hinged at the top in such a way that a rabbit could easily push it up, and that it would drop again when he entered. From the time the crop shows above the ground until long after it is gathered, the rabbits are seeking to get into the cultivation, and as they run along the fence seeking for an opening, they would meet with the hollow log and pass, not into the cul tivation, as they expected, but into a trap yard, where they would be easily dealt wit...
