THE DANYSZ EXPERIMENT. To the Editor "The Farmer and Settler." [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 25 April 1906
THE DANYSZ EXPERIMENT. ———— To the Editor "The Farmer and Settler." Sir, — It appears that Dr. Danzy's is coming to try his experiments to destroy the rabbits, and it will be a great bless- ing if he succeeds without injury to any- thing else. As I meet a great many people and am a silent listener to different opinions, it seems to me there are three different parties interested in the distribution of rabbits or otherwise. First, those that would try the experiment at any risk; &nbsp; second, those that are afraid of the dis- ease affecting other things; and, last, &nbsp; but not least, those that are doing well out of bunny, and wish to retain him, at any loss to the other fellow. Now, my opinion is that all men who have the welfare of the State at heart will be glad to see the Doctor try his scheme; but first the public should be satisfied beyond the least shadow of a doubt that his disease will affect no other living thing. That being done, no one should object to...
MARKET REPORTS. WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 2 May 1906
MARKET REPORTS. WHEAT. The tendency of the wheat market since last report has been considerably firmer, and holders seem disinclined to do busi ness at prices which a fortnight ago were freely mentioned as permitting of busi ness. The position according to latest ad vices indicates a stronger enquiry at liome, and although English quotations do not enable Sydney shippers to operate at local prices, it is significant to note that Melbourne and Adelaide ship pers are fixing fresh charters and that prices at Melbourne and Adelaide have advanced. The millers are evidently short supplied, and the sales effected dur ing the past week have been wholly to the millers'. The rail deliveries indicate that a very large quantity of wheat has not yet reached the seaboard, and until seeding operations are completed, which will take about six weeks yet, farmers will not be tempted to interfere with their present ?work. Deliveries from January 1 to date for this and previous years have been as fol l...
COMMONWEALTH WHEAT EXPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 2 May 1906
COMMONWEALTH WHEAT EXPORTS. During March there 'were exported oversea from the Commonwealth 2,837,199 ?centals of wheat, making 10,984,496 cen tals during the first three months .of this year. March also accounted for an ex port of 39^906 centals of flour, making '937,176 centals for the three months. These exports, therefore, represented 1 8,307,493' bushels of wheat, and the equi valent of 2,186,744 bushels of wheat in the shape of. flour, making the total ex port from the Commonwealth during the March quarter equal to 20,494,237 bushels ?of wheat. . This would leave some 16,000,000 bushels still exportable during the year out of the. surplus last harvest. The latest' sales locally that can be taken as an -index of the present strength ?of the market is a , parcel of .3000 bags at ' .3/5- There are further enquiries for. prime wheat at the same figure, but,, as has been previously .stated, the- -'ideas' 'of-, holders seem to advance correspondingly: : 'with offers, and little busi...
ANTHRAX POISONING. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 2 May 1906
ANTHRAX POISONING. ; ; A. wire from Albury says : — A man named John Bell, aged 35, died in the hospital on Monday from, the effects of ?anthrax. poisoning. Bell was a married man with four - children^ and was work ing in the hide and skin stores of Voung '.' Husband,- Row and Co. He had some ; pimples on his hand', and: on Friday his arm commenced to swell. He was admit 'ted' to the Hospital,- and treated for an thrax, but quickly became worse. A plague oij mice is giving great trouble to residents of Dandaloo and other, parts '?of' 'the Peak Hill district, farmhouses and private residences being overrun. ? . -.It is expected that. within a couple of - years Queensland will have plenty of beef available for export. If such proves to bo tlio ease a tug-of-war between the Queensland nnd Argentine* breeders may happen. ' . N

PILLIGA SCRUB LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 2 May 1906
«PILLIGA SCRUB LANDS. . A wire from Narrabri says : — Mr. Davisj ex-M.L.A., says he is so far satisfied and favourably impressed with the Pilliga scrub land he has inspected. The depart ment announces that in the scrub there are under present occupancy 59 holdings, in cluding 39 conditional purchasers and les sees, only three having so far applied for ro-appraiscment. From which it infers that they are either satisfied with their rentals or fear an increase. The department adds that thoro is no certainty of the Land Board's recommendations made two years ago boing adopted, and, even if so, such .would not apply to lands at present held under various tenures.
SETTLEMENT ON PILLIGA. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 2 May 1906
«» » Oft 9 ? ? !* »» ? SETTLEMENT ON PILLIGA. A wire from Narrabri says : — It is re rorted from a reliable source that Mr. Da vies has sent up a report on Pilliga Scrub. He states that he is so far sat isfied and favourably impressed with the country he has inspected, and that the only way the Government can induce peo ple to settle on the land and open up the country is by constructing a ' railway line through it. either from Mudgee or Coonamblo to Burren .Junction, or Wee Waa, thereby connecting the Northern lino. The timber to be got out of the scrub would bo a sufficient asset to pay for working interest on construction.

THE McNALLY GRIP DROPPER. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 2 May 1906
THE McNALLY GRIP DROPPER. A device which has been found of won derful utility in connection with wire fences is the attachment of droppers to take the place of posts. Experience has proved, their efficacy and economy to such a degree that it is only a question of time when they must come into general use. The only question which will face the landholder 'is what kind of dropper he will go in for, and it will be a hard mat ter to improve on the kind which has been invented by Mr. McNally, of Queens land. Mr. McNally had a length of fencing erected alongside the Cooper shearing machines at the Royal Agricul tural Society's Show, and gave convincing demonstrations in favor of his droppers. The)' have a corrugated shape, which secures strength, and oblique cuttings to drop on the wires, and their attachment is the act of a moment. They are simply dropped on the wires and turned round, and with out any ties the firm grip which they have on the wires through their peculiar shape is truly ...
THE EASDOWN RABBIT TRAP. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 2 May 1906
THE EASDOWN RABBIT TRAP. It was a happy notion of Mr. Easdown to exhibit the operation of his trap in a small enclosure with live rabbits at the Royal Agricultural Show. The space al lotted to him was always surrounded by curious onlookers, and there was a con tinuous object lesson of how to deal with the rabbits. Nothing could be simpler or more effective than this trap, which Mr. Easdown is now turning out by scores in factories in Sydney and Melbourne. It ic cn/-Vi a natural rnntrivanrp tlmt thp. rabbit turns into it in the readiest manner possible, and it can be well understood how. hundreds will pass through a single trap in one night. On a boundary fence the trap presents itself to the rabbit as just the opening he is looking for, and it' may be made quite as effective in the open if a small enclosure is constructed round water or some good pasturage to attract bunny. The testimonials which Mr. Easdown has received from all over the country indicate the wonderful results which...

THE "TITAN-ALEXANDRA" SEPARATOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 2 May 1906
THE 'TITAN-ALEXANDRA' SEPARATOR. An exhibit which atracted more than ordinary interest at the Royal Agricul tural Society's Show was thai of Messrs. J. Barrc Johnston and Co. (Agency), Ltd. This company have recently taken up the agency of the 'Titan-Alexandra' cream separator, and the large number of machines they had set up, ready for use, clearly shows that they intend to seri-. ously push the sale of. this line. A good stock is carried in sizes ranging from 22 to no gallons per hour in hand machines, and from' 155 to 500 gallons in power plants. The special features claimed for the 'Titan-Alexandra' separator are that it is very easily turned and also easy . to . clean, which are both essential points .to be considered by a ^farmer in the choice of a .cream ; separator.

SUGGESTIONS FOR AMENDMENT TO RABBIT ACT. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 2 May 1906
SUGGESTIONS FOR AMEND. MENT TO RABBIT ACT. The following letter appears in one of our provincial contemporaries : — Sir, — The principle on which such laws should be built is confidence that the bulk of landholders wish to destroy the rabbits. Therefore, the destruction should be left almost wholly in their own hands. Paid boards and paid officials of all kinds should be got rid of as' far as possible. 1. Group holdings 10 contain an area of about four hundred square miles, to be designed by the district surveyor in the form most suitable for the purpose. 2. The cost of wire-netting the bound aries to be borne half by landholders within the group, and half by landholders in adjoining groups. 3. The cost of preparing the fences for the wire-netting to be borne by the owner of the land on which they are, as also the duty of maintaining the netted fence in proper order. 4. The cost of destroying rabbits within the group to be borne by the landholders therein, and in proportion to the a...

THE TERMS OF AGREEMENT. ' ' The terms of the agreement, as stat ed by the* secretary of the Council of Ad vice, are that Dr. Danysz is to be paid £1200 down, and ,£200 a month for; two years— the period ? he engages to work here in connection with the experiment— but it is provided that if experience shows it to be, useless, to proceed further with .. the experiment, Dr. Danysz is to oe at liberty to return to Paris, provided, how ever, that the bacteriologist: appointed, by the Premier agrees that it will be useless his remaining longer. Dr. Danysz brings out with, him an 'assistant, who is to be paid at the rate of ^34 a month, and the assistant, if the committee desire it, is to remain for the whole period of two years, whether Dr. Danysz returns or not; ,£6oo' is also being paid to Dr. Danysz to en able him to purchase the necessary in struments before he leaves the Old Country, for use here.

DR. DANYSZ AND THE LAW. TROUBLE BREWING. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 2 May 1906
DR. DANYSZ AND THE LAW. TROUBLE BREWING. There is an interesting development in the Danysz experiment scheme. The com mittee which has charge of the arrange ments has received from a solicitor repre senting Mr. W. A. Benn and others an intimation that if the proposal goes fur ther legal proceedings will be initiated. Mr. Benn represents large rabbit export interests, and it is understood that the ac tion threatened is on their behalf. Con tracts appear to have been made with the. proviso tnat in ine event 01 a aiBeuse ue ing introduced against the rabbit the sup plies should at once cease. It is assumed that the opening move will be for an in junction to restrain the scientist from com mencing operations, and that the case will be subsequently fought out on the conten tion that the experiments are an undue interference with vested interests, or that they are a menace to the public safety. The council of advice of the Pastures Pro tection Boards, which has received the le gal letter,...
