AMENDED REGULATION NO. 86, UNDER THE GROWN LANDS ACT. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 25 April 1906

THE WIRE NETTING MESH. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 25 April 1906
THE WIRE NETTING MESH. By A. L. P. C. There are few matters upon which such a diversity of opinion exists1, among those interested, as upon the question of the gauge and mesh of wire netting that should be purchased by the Government others requiring it. The most extreme views' have b.een published as to the effi cacy or otherwise of the i£in. mesh. Of two men who from experience should be equally qualified to express an opin ion, the one. will say, 'I have proved from my own experience that the i£in. mesh is absolutely useless ; rabbits' of a living age come through it wholesale, and it is merely throwing away money to fence a holding with netting that doesn't effect the purpose intended.' The other equ ally experienced writer will say, 'It would be ridiculous to pay ,£40 a mile for i^in. netting when, for all practical purposes, i£ is just as good, and can be bought for 25 per cent. less. As for what Jones says about rabbits getting through whole sale, it's all rot. Look at me ; I...
GRASPING THE SHADOW. To the Editor, "The Farmer and Settler." [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 25 April 1906
GRASPING THE SHADOW. To the Editor, 'The Farmer and Settler.', Sir, — There seems to have been a good deal of Socialism , in the air lately, one evidence of which was the late debate between Mr.. Reid and Mr. Holman. I quite' admire the gentle and gentlemanly manner in which Mr. ? Reid treated this faddist child of Labor. '... It starts one won 'dcring where these Socialists sprang from. They must surely be the offspring of the man that hid his talent in the earth some 1800 years ago, and are just now waking up to try and get what the wise and industrious man has put to- . gether. But I am afraid they are like the dog that was passing over the bridge with the bone. They have dropped their chance for the shadow, so all their howl ing won't bring back the lost talent. Mr. Holman is only causing discord and dis content amongst his followers. If he had gone down the Murray River some 14 years ago he could have seen where the South Australian Government had placed 100 families on the lan...
CONTRIBUTED ARTICLES on Topical Subjects. ECONOMIC IRRIGATION—II. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 25 April 1906
CONTRIBUTED ARTICLES on Topical Subjects. ECONOMIC IRRIGATION— II. By F.H. No system of irrigation is entitled to the designation of ' Economic' that does not directly nourish the growing crops with the whole or the major percentage of the water used, or available for the purpose. Nevertheless, it is an establis hed fact that by surface irrigation in Aus tralia an enormous quantity of water, vastly beyond any possible natural re quirement of the crop, is placed upon certain limited areas of land in order to produce the results upon which some of our irrigators congratulate themselves. What becomes of the surplus water is apparently a matter of indifference to the user when he can, without restriction, monopolise the supply from an available river or watercourse. When, however, the cultivator can be convinced that every gallon of water that is not bene ficial to the crap is directly detrimental to it, it is fair to assume that methods of preparing the land for irrigation, other than ...

The N.S.W. Commercial Agent in Japan writes as follows :— ' Australian butter is gradually coming more and more ' into favor. Recently an attempt was made to introduce American butter to one of the large importers of Australian butter, but, on trial, it. was judged not to be equal to the New South Wales consignmerit, nor could it compare in flavor. . Keep up the present standard of quality, and it is cer tain that New South Wales butter will liold the market against all comers.'

TENTERFIELD FARM PRODUCE TROPHY. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 25 April 1906
TENTERFIELD FARM PRODUCE TROPHY. The Tenterfield trophy at the Royal Ag ricultural Society's Show was of special interest to members of the Farmers' and Settlers' Association, as it was on the suggestion of Mr. J.. Wetherspoon, one of the vice-presidents, that the exhibit was made. Mr. Wetherspoon was judging at the last Tenterfield Show, where the Sunnyside branch of the Asso ciation competed against the Leech's Gully Farmers' Union in the farm pro duce section, and such a good result was secured that he conferred with the presi dents of the two bodies, Messrs. J. C. Chick and D. Weir, and advised that they should co-operate in sending a trophy to Sydney. A brave show was thus made from Tenterfield against the Murrumbid gee and Argyle exhibits, each of which represented 'the combined efforts of a large group of districts. The Tenter field trophy was got up within a brief ? period from the products of this season, and 14 trades were represented in it. That 417 points should have bee...

W. N. WILLIS. HIS APPEAL DISMISSED. A cable from London, dated Thursday, says : — The appeal lodged by W. N. Willis, of Sydney, in the Supreme Court of Natal against the magistrate's decision — which affirms that the Natal magistrate has jurisdiction under the Fugitive Offen ders Act — has been dismissed. The act of extradition should follow now without delay, and the probability is that the much-wanted ex-land agent will reach Sydney in time to give evidence before the Lands Commission, as Mr. Justice Owen has not yet sent in his report.

STARVING 'BUS HORSES. A BALMAIN PROSECUTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 25 April 1906
STARVING 'BUS HORSES. A BALMAIN PROSECUTION. Edward George Williams, an inspector of the Animals' Protection Society, pro ceeded against Edward James a 'bus pro prietor, at the Balmain Summons Court recently, for cruelly illtreating certain horses, by not supplying them with suffi cient food. Complainant stated that on the 27th ult. he went to the defendant's stables in Elizabeth Street, Balmain, and saw there 12 horses in the yard. They were all in a very low condition. In fact, in a hor rid state. There was nothing for them to eat, and they were eating manure off the ground. A grey gelding was in a very weak state, and unfit for work. Witness searched for food, and was told there was none on the premises. He told the man in charge to send for food. Witness had had lifelong experience with horses, and thos'e he saw were in a state of starvation. The horses looked -as if they had had no feed that day. Benjamin Loel, a veterinary surgeon, said he saw the horses in question. He found ...
CAPEWELL HORSE NAILS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 25 April 1906
CAPEWELL HORSE NAILS. The Capewell Horse Nail Co., London, made a good display of their horse-shoe nails at the Royal Show. This brand is now so well known in Australia that little need be said ; but we are reminded that these nails are 'cold drawn,' this being the greatest guarantee of quality, and that they are the only 'British made' horse nails on the market. Patriotic horse own ers should note these points, and see that their farriers use Capewell Horse Nails', as they will stand any test, and are the firmest in holding power. m» ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ m ^ .^*v

SELECTIONS DURING MARCH. The returns as to land applied for dur ing the past month show that 138 new settlers applied for 73,096 acres, inclusive of the area which applicants for Original Conditional Purchases are entitled to take up as Conditional Leases.

A PROGRESSIVE LAND TAX. ITS EFFECT ON THE SMALL HOLDER. To the Editor "The Farmer and Settler." [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 25 April 1906
A PROGRESSIVE LAND TAX. ITS EFFECT ON THE SMALL HOLDER. To the Editor 'The Farmer and Settler.1' Sir,— I see by 'The Farmer and Set tle*' that the question of progressive land tax for the bursting up of large es tates, as advocated by Mr. Watson and, his socialistic party, is being criticised to some extent by some contributors, while others would bring themselves into ridicule by trying to justify such a selfish and ridiculous policy. Mr. Watson says this tax will not be for revenue purposes, but for the bursting iip of large estates, so that it will have to be a big one. We have Mr. Watson's own words that it will amount to is. in the pound in most cases. But Mr. Watson, says this does not affect the small man of up to £5000 of unimproved value. Well, let us see tipw it will affect present land values, and how that effect will work out to *he interests of the small man. The progressive land tax as advocated by Mr. Watson and his party would force so much land upon the market that ...
PRAISEWORTHY ENTERPRISE. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 25 April 1906
PRAISEWORTHY ENTERPRISE. Says the Bathurst correspondent of the 'Daily Telegraph' : — Recognising that many of their students do no't enter pro fessional or commercial life, but go on me lanci, tne aumormes or at. atamsiaus College, at Bathurst, have decided to in troduce the subject of agriculture within the next three weeks, when a start will be made with 20 boys, who will most likely adopt the cultivation of the soil as a means of livelihood. Included in ;he course of instruction for the first half year are twelve theoretical lectures, be sides twelve practical lectures at the Bathurst experimental farm. Additions to the College involving an expenditure of between £1500 and ,£1600 are nearing completion. The additional buildings will provide a magnificent physical science-hall, to house the College's phy sical science apparatus, which is claimed to be second to none among Australian educational establishments. A new chemistry-hall is also erected, and it is proposed to bring this...
THE BRIGHT YELLOW LEGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 25 April 1906
THE BRICHT YELLOW LEGS. The fading color of the legs in Leg horns and other yellow-legged breeds is often a source of speculation as to the cause. Some chicks fiom stock of un doubted pure blood come with legs of a leaden hue, and this defect cannot be overcome. If one desires birds well up to the requirements of the standard, such, however good in other respects, should not be bred from, as the objectionable feature is sure to be perpetuated in their progeny. * * * Where, however, the legs have not as sumed the attractive yellow tint, or, hav ing once possessed it have suffered its los's, it may always be attributed to their surroundings. Thus certain soils are held to exercise a potent influence in this re spect, but we have found either to secure or, having secured, to retain, the desired yellow leg, nothing approaches a good grass run. * * * A successful Leghorn breeder of our acquaintance strongly held the opinion that allowing birds access to the dewy grass in the early mornin...
