THE REWARD OF INDUSTRY AND THRIFT. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 25 April 1906
THE REWARD OF INDUSTRY AND THRIFT. . Referring during his recent Western tour to the statement of Mr. Watson that it must be a sine qua non that every man who joined the Labor League must be a Socialist, Mr.. Reid said: — People spoke of capitalists is if they were a class to be hated. It must be remembered that they were really the working men of the past. Capital 'in Australia really represented the labour of those grand men who had transmuted their savings into various forms of property. Trace the history of their farmers, and it would be found that they began life on wages, probably as farm or station hands, were ultimately able to take up a selection, and so from small beginnings acquire the splendid farms seen to-day. Surely those men ought not to be hated and put down. Surely every thing they had won by their industry and thrift ought not to be regarded as' a curse, but as a blessing. There were a large number of small capitalists in Australia. Take, for instance, the savings...

THE PEEL RIVER ESTATE. WHOLE RESUMPTION ASKED FOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 25 April 1906
THE PEEL RIVER ESTATE. WHOLE RESUMPTION ASKED FOR. The Minister for Lands was interview ed by a deputation from the Tamworth Closer Settlement League, who asked that in view of the success of the recent sale of the Peel River Estate subdivi sion, the Government should resume the whole of the balance of the estate, com 7 prising an area of. 225,000 acres. Mr. Ashton said he had asked for a re-: port with regard to the character of the sale and the class of buyers from a closer settlement point of view, and he had ascertained that the actual'' result was much. more favorable than the state ments which appeared in the newspapers would indicate. About one-third of the purchasers ' Were' already landholders, and the balance represented what might be/classed as new settlers. The ques tion of closer settlement had always been viewed by him as one of great 'import- ance, and he was' strongly of opinion that the days of the Peel River Estate, in common with those of many other com panies, we...
MR. G. H. REID ON CLOSER SETTLEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 25 April 1906
MR. G. H. REID ON CLOSER SETTLEMENT. Questioned as .to his policy regarding closer settlement, Mr. Reid said that in his opinion there was no more urgent problem in Australia to-day than that of closer settlement. The existence of big estates was blocking the. road to closer settlement, and he was absolutely in favour of their being resumed for this purpose. Those people, had bought these lands under the seal of a demo cratic Crown grant, and had paid for them, and he said that when the State took them back as it ought to do, it should pay them fairly. His reply to Mr. Wat son, who advocated putting on a heavy progressive tax, to burst up the big es tates, was that the Federal Constitution never contemplated any interference by the Federal Parliament in the manage ment of the land question by the States themselves. Each State must work out its own land theories, and if he were- in a State Parliament he would regard the opening up of. big estates for closer set tlement as a far bigge...

MILK PAINT. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 25 April 1906
MILK PAINT. Some time ago (writes T. Greener in 'Farm and Fireside') I tried the cement milk paint on my greenhouse, both in side and out. I can now report that it has stood the test quite well, and here after, when I have some outbuildings or board fences in- need of painting, I shall do it with the cheap paint, the recipe of wmen 1 give Herewith : — Stir into one gallon of milk about three pounds Portland cement, and add suffic ient Venetian red powder, or any other coloured paint-powder, to impart a good colour. The milk will hold the paint in suspension, but the cement, being very heavy, will sink to the bottom, so that it becomes necessary to keep the mixture well stirred with a paddle. This feature of the need of stirring is the only draw back to the paint, and as its efficiency depends upon administering a good coat ing of cement, it is not safe to leave its application to untrustworthy help. Six hours after painting this paint will be as immovable and unaffected by water as ...
A THOUSAND SHEEP ON A THOUSAND ACRES. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 25 April 1906
A THOUSAND SHEEP ON A THOUSAND ACRES. Mr. Dalby, of Port Broughton, South Australia, states that he keeps 1000 sheep on iooo acres of grass, and by using en silage he hoped in future to be able to keep 3000 on the same area. At least once in every five years they could cut a first-class crop of ensilage or hay; in the plain country round Pine they should also be able to make ensilage in proportion of two parts of straw and one to one of green stuff.. On this, he be lieved, a sheep could be kept for id. per week, evciv when they could only cut a ton to the acre. With wool at gid. per lb. this would pay handsomely. He had cut 60 tons of ensilage from 40 acres, and he hoped to do more in future. Four ' pounds of ensilage a day would keep a sheep for a long time. . He reckoned that 100 tons of ensilage would keep 1000 sheep for .nine weeks at a cost of ,£40. He would also advocate the use of pie melons which grew so well in some parts. The melons could be kept and preserved, and the pla...
FARM IMPLEMENTS. BORING PLANTS. AUSTRALIA SHOWS THE WAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 25 April 1906
FARM IMPLEMENTS. BORING PLANTS. AUSTRALIA SHOWS THE WAV. When giving evidence befdre the Tariff ? Commission the other day, Mr. James R. Thompson, consulting engineer, who had been manager of the Atlas Engineering Company, Limited, for many years, stat ed that his firm commenced the manufac ture of plants for boring artesian wells about the year 1887, and up to the end of 1S96 had turned out about fifteen com plete plants, value about .£1000 each. Vast improvements have been made both in the tools used and in the method of using them, and though the system of drilling originated in America, and is largely practised in Europe and Asia, the credit is due to Australia for most of these developments. As a matter of fact, . the method has been completely revolu tionised, and Australian ideas have now been adopted in other countries.

"CHILLED" PLOUGH SHARES. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 25 April 1906
' CHILLED ' PLOUGH SHARES. Messrs. J. and R. Forgan, of Crystal Brook, South Australia, exhibited a large collection of plough and scarifier shares at the Royal Show, the variety of shapes and sizes being so comprehensive that it would be difficult to name a plough or cultivator that could not be fitted. The chief feature of these sliares is that they are 'self-sharpening,' owing to the fact of the under side only being chilled, and in consequence, the natural wear of the upper surface, being greater than that of the chilled portion, keeps the shares sharp. Messrs. J. and R. Forgan are the largest makers of these goods in the Common wealth, and having had 28 years' experi ence, are in the best position to cater for the wants of farmers in all districts. Any storekeeper can procure them if they in sist on having J. and R. Forgan's shares1.
