During - the ?week, however/ the position lias cus tinctly improved, and' the farmer litis consequently benefited. There is _no doubt that the rigid manner 111 which o-rowers have kept off the market, refusing to. accept the low rates of fering, has helped them in the long . run as buyers here have thus beeii unable to purchase large, parcels, and though they have endeavoured to so far bear tiie market' by not opera ting, save for the covering up. of im mediate requirements, the farmei lias this time been equally determined not to' five way.

AGENTS' REPORTS. Messrs. Winelicombe, Carson. Ltd., report:-The chief feature of inter est in the wool marKet is the firm opening of the second series of tlie wool sales in London, on the 14th Just. The best grades of merino are reported to be rather higher than the closing rates of the January sales, but as the selection was not one of the best, it is probable that . the market will harden as the sales . progress. In Sydney; a tone of quiet confi dence prevails, and some little busi ness is being done in "passed in" lots, at advances ' .upon the previous auc tion bids: " Most of the wool in Syd- . ney is* held :for'. the - - sale's;.-which" are to" take place the first week in April.

Local Consumption of Raw Wool. ' - ROOM FOk EXPANSION. ' By "The Shepherd." With a total production of 3/0,S08, 000 lb. of "wool in New South >\ ales, the fact that only 1.073,200 lb. was vised locally, shows that our woollen mills have not made the progress ex pected from them, in view of the heavy protective duties on the manu factured. articles. The for the past few years-1906-1910, is only a little over 5,090,000 lb;,^ini the m-evious five years it was 0,460,(01) lb., and in the period 1896-1900, 7,070; 000 lb There is ? no doubt, judging ~bv statistics that the manufactur ing industry has had several ups and-d^wns. In 1900 there were four woollen mills/ in 1903 and 1904, only 3, in 190G-7-S, 5: and to-day there are S. including the top-making mill established last-year^in,Botany.

LAMBS VERSUS WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911
LAMBS VERSUS WHEAT. An instance was given at Inverell, the other day of the deterioration suf fered by stock, by the long railway journeys that so mucli of it has to take before reaching the Home bush saleyards. While addressing the people at the show, Mr. Trefle ex pressed the opinion that people would find it more profitable to raise lambs than to grow wheat: it cost less to produce a lamb than a sack of wheat. One of his hearers afterwards took the opportunity to say that he had recentl3r sent to Sydney a truckload of lambs, wtorth wlicn placed on the truck, 10s to 13s per head. They were four days getting to Home bush, during which time they had nothing to eat, and when sold they realised only 4s Cd per head. "No," he said, "raising lambs will not pay till Ave get quicker railway transit." Mr. Thomas, M.L.A., for the district, said they wanted relief at once, in the shape of a connection with the north ern line, wherever the junction might be. Tropical animals which expose thems...

THE CATTLE TICK. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911
THE CATTLE TICK. Up iii the quarantine area cattle men wax "wrathful at., the Govern ment regulations. It is only natural. They mean great loss and inconveni " ence. But what is to be done ? The good of the greatest number must be studied all the time. ' That is the only course that an enlightened com munity can follow. It has never been proved that the tick won't flourish down south. Ex perts reckon it will, at least, along the coast, and that would mean de vastation generally. After all, bitter as it is for those concerned, the fact remains that it is better that the trouble should be confined. That is-:'what the Government is aiming at. Yet there are men in the affected area who are rather pleased if anything, to hear that ticks have been discovered outside the boun daries. It is a selfish idea, and one that the bulk of stockowners will condemn bitterly. . And any Govern ment that would tolerate laxity in this way is guilty of treachery to the whole of the stock interests of the ...

Lighting. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911
Lighting. 1 he contractors for gas lighting works for Casino, wrote to the council sug gesting that the lamps to be 'erected be placed in the middle of the " streets. It was pointed out lights in. the mid . die of tjie streets were more 'efficient, as the shade of trees, buildings, etc., would be avoided, . whereas if they Avere placed along the side the light would, for the reasons mentioned, not be so good. The letter stated the i company desires Casino, to have lights equal to those of any town in the ??'?'State,, and they believed they would tse This would increase the cost to tl:t' council by some £60 or £70, hut &lt;.!:.. advantage would compensate the additional, outlay. The lights would be double ones, and much more effi cient.. It. was decided to have eight . e>tra double lights provided, on con dition the posts were no extra cost.

Dividing Fences. II. I. It., Canterbury, asks:-"I ?wished to fence an allotment I own in Canterbury, and made enquiries at the council chambers for the ad joining owners. I was informed that the owners had not been heard of for many years, and no rates paid. I de termined to fence myself. Strange to say, before it was finished the own er on one side turned up. I applied to him for his share of the fence, and he said lie Avould see. I again spoke to him after the fence was finished, and he refused ? to pay. Can I com pel him to do. so? and what action should I take ?"

The Reader's View CONTROL OF STOCK ROUTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911
===!-- jyx The. header's View CONTROL OF STOCK ROUTES. Editor, "The Land,"-Whereas .as stock routes are at present under t!ie jurisdiction and management of P.P. Boards, and the delegates of the 1909 Farmers' Conference voted that the work of the P.P. .Board could be most economically carried out by shire councils in con junction with shire council Avorks, Mr. 11 iggins' letter in your issue of March 3 is worthy of consideration. There is no , man Avith greater re spect for JLlr. uiggins' ojimiions than myself, albeit that I am in favour of the work of the P.P. Boards being handed over to shire councillors. Therefore I wish that Mr. Wiggins was more, explicit in explaining in what way and from what quarter he apprehends injustice. lf>he does this lucidly many of us might be. con-' verted to his ideas, for the simple reason that we prefer justice to re form. for the few years the shire councils have been in existence we can see around us everj-wliere results for the taxation we na...

Abbott writes:-For some time now (more particularly from Mr. Trefle, the Minister for Ag riculture), we lxave been getting mys terious hints of a Yankee meat com bine, which is going to swallow up the pastoral industry of Australia. We are told that this octopus is reaching out its tentacles, and some of them have already stretched into Xew South Wales, where they are making preparations to spend £40, 000,000 of Yankee money among us if we don't hurry up and stop them. Of course, the Minister tells us he has his eyes wide open, and is quite pre pared to save us from this awful cat astrophe, at any cost or any sacrifice, but the means by which lie is going to do this cannot be revealed yet. The time is not ripe. Will you let me point out to our energetic and far-seeing Minister that there is an other Yankee combine or trust which has had its tentacles right in amongst us for several years, and no steps have yet been taken to arrest its baneful influen...
P. P. Boards. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911
P. P. Boards. ** ? . « At a meeting of the Carcoar P.P. Board, a letter was, read from the Railway Commissioners in reply to a request from the board to take steps to destroy rabbits on the. railway line from Carcoar to Cowra. The Commissioners stated that the fet tlers devoted as much of their time as could be spared from the main tenance of the permanent way to the destruction of rabbits, amounting to an average of about two days per month, and that the means employ ed were tank traps, of which they had about 20 between Carcoar and Cowra, also laying poison, destroying bur rows, and fumigating. They estima ted that during the last three months they had destroyed about 3000 rab bit's on that section of the line. The gangers always had poison on hand, and distributed it where rabbits ap peared to be numerous, but with a view .to distributing poison more quickly, they had now arranged for a poison-cart to be hired from the manager of Coombing Park station, to work 011 the railway lan...
