WHY SEEDS FAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 25 April 1906

WHY SEEDS FAIL. There are right and wrong ways of sow ing seeds. The favourite wrong way is to bury them so deep that they die of suf focation. The general rule to observe in sowing seeds is to cover thern with soil to the depth of their diameter, which is equivalent to saying that most seeds must merely be sown on the surface of the ground, and lightly pressed in. A fre quent cause of seeds failing to come up, is that the ground is too rough. A seed bed to be satisfactory, must have the sur face soil pulverised as finely as possible. Seeds, too, are almost always sown too thickly. This is not only a wasteful habit, but gives a great deal 'of extra trouble later on, when the young plants require thinning. It is a good plan to mix very small seeds with sand and to sow the mixture out of a pepper box. Mr. Campbell, Director of Agriculture, says the man on the land in New South Wales by dint of just a little brainwork and energy should be able to live better than a millionaire in Sydne...

THE GRANARY. WHEAT-GROWERS IN S.A. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 25 April 1906

THE GRANARY. WHEAT-GROWERS IN S.A. South Australian farmers are evidently in the midst of a cycle of fat seasons. They have reaped a magnificent harvest, and are beginning to reap the benefit in a concrete form. Evidence of the bene ficial results may be seen on every hand ; mortgages have been paid off, store ac counts and bank balances liquidated, and still the agriculturist lias money left to purchase land and machinery. A large quantity of wheat is still withheld from sale by growers, who can afford to hold out for higher prices. The season has also turned out so well for wool, dairy, and other farm produce, that tillers of the soil have experienced better times all round than for many years past. — An Adelaide Correspondent.

RABBIT EXTERMINATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 25 April 1906

RABBIT EXTERMINATION. Attention is drawn to the advertisement of Cuming, Smith and Co., 65 William street, Melbourne, the manufacturers of the famous Sickle Brand poisons. It has now become recognised as a very strong point with this firm that their series of poisons allow the extermination of the rabbit to be carried out not only all the year round, but anywhere and everywhere. The surface poisons are of the very high est quality, and the bi-sulphide of carbon (of which C, S. and Co. are the only makers in Australia) is now becoming very largely used, not only by big users, but by the small farmers. It is recognised that the best way of using Carbon bisul phide is by means of a fumigator, thus suffocating the rabbit in the burrow by the carbon fumes. In respect to this mode of treatment intending purchasers can be supplied with a simple drum machine at a very small- cbst,' or a patent machine at an increased cost. The testimonial of Mr. T. Ryan, of Wallandool, Henty, N.S.W., is wor...

SIMULTANEOUS POISONING. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 25 April 1906

SIMULTANEOUS POISONING. A wire from Gundagai says : — At the regular meeting of the Gundagai Pastures Protection Board the stock inspector re ported a dozen owners for not having taken sufficient steps to cope with the rabbits on their holdings. At the same time he stated that there had lately been a remarkable reduction in the pest, al though he regretted the interruption of the simultaneous poisoning crusade ? for merly in vogue. It was decided to finally caution onencung landowners berore tak ing them to court, and to continue the simultaneous poisoning periods. A pro posal was made to divide the district into ridings, for the purpose of enabling bet ter supervision of the poisoning methods. Under this boundaries would be observed, simultaneous poisoning being carried on in each riding for a week, allowing the inspector to visit a riding, and pass on to the next as poisoning was being carried out. The proposal was favorably receiv ed, and will be finally dealt with at next meetin...

A CLEAR-CUT STATEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 25 April 1906

A CLEAR-CUT STATEMENT. Writing on the subject of trappers, 'Grazier' says : — 'I, for one, and no doubt many, others who have tried them, can vouch that rabbits are thicker when trappers leave a place than when they commence. Strange, but true. They only work at distances conveniently near to railway stations, and thus only ' tap' the most limited of areas. They are only concerned in what they can make, and not in diminishing the pest for the benefit of landowners. Rabbits, from the trappers' point of view, when near a rail way station, are a blessing; rabbits, from a landowner's point of view, anywhere, are a curse. This is a clear-cut state ment of the position.'

NATIVE WIT. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 25 April 1906

NATIVE Wit. The wit of the young Australian is un questionable. At the late Royal Agricul tural Society's Show in Syney; the 'pro prietors of 'Slayo' Rabbit Poison had two typical street Arabs, about 7 or 8 years of age perambulating the ground dressed up in rabbit skins, as an adver tisement. The youngsters, thoroughly entering into the fun of the thing, indulg ed in all sorts of antics/ no doubt con sidering themselves 'the admired of all beholders.' Whilst carrying on their capers, one of them inadvertently ran into a passing vehicle, and was knocked head over heels. Before he had time to pick himself upj his mate, with ready.- wit, shouted, 'Hooray! Another kill for 'Slayo!' ' amidst roars of laughter from the bystanders'. There is' much satisfaction at Murwil lumbah at the large number of applicants (43) for the 26 blocks of land thrown open in parishes Mooball, Tyalgum and Bur rill, comprising 7378 acres, and a hope is expressed that the Lands Department will expedite the thro...
