GEORGE MOLE AND CO. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 2 May 1906
GEORGE MOLE AND CO. In the implement section of the Royal Show the cheery presence of Mh George Mole was a welcome feature to many a farmer. Though the firm of George Mole and Co.,. of 12S George-street West, Syd ney, is a young yet lusty infant .of 'hut- fniiv lTnafe! nvietpnrn ATr TVfnlp llim self has been among the farmers for over thirty years. Formerly he was the trav elling representative of an English firm,. . and gained such ^ thorough knowledge of the exact requirements of Australians on' the land that when he settled down, to business on his own account he knew ex actly how to study their interests and ':- please them. At first he had little capi tal to work with, and the effects of the drought to contend against, but he bat tled boldly, and had good old friends to help him, so that latterly his firm has made remarkable progress. Mr. Mole is well known for his honesty of purpose and his willingness to go to all sorts of trouble to please his clients, and these qualities co...
AT THE ROYAL SHOW. Exhibits by our Advertisers. "IDEAL" POISON CARTS, Etc. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 2 May 1906
AT THE ROYAL SHOW. Exhibits by our Advertisers. 'IDEAL' POISON CARTS, Etc. Conspicuous among appliances to deal with the rabbit pest exhibited at the Royal Agricultural Show were the poison carts of Mr. T. H. Hicks, of North Bot any and Bowna. Mr. Hicks, whose name has long- been associated with the manu facture of agricultural implements at Bowna, was the inventor of the original 'Pom-Pom'' pollard distributor. From this as a foundation all the up-to-date poison carts' have sprung, Mr. Hicks naturally taking a lead in the improve ments which have been made, and being the first to hit upon the idea of automati cally covering the baits after they have been dropped into the furrow. The plac ing of the baits well below the surface is of course a most important matter, as otherwise they would be picked up by stock and birds. What directed Mr. Hicks' attention to the absolute necessity of properly burying the baits so that the rabbits alone would get at them was that one of his neighbour...
BUMBLE-FOOT AND CORNS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 2 May 1906
BUMBLE-FOOT AND CORNS. Sometimes the foot of a fowl will be much swollen and apparently tender. If examined, the presence of a corn on the sole may be detected, although this is not always the case. Sometimes a corn may be found in conjunction with bumble loot, aitiiougn usually tnese auecuons are quite distinct from each other. When, after cleansing the foot, no corn is vis ible, the swelling may safely be diag nosed as bumble foot, and treated ac cordingly. The bird should be confined in a pen having a good layer of straw on the floor. ♦ * * The foot may require poulticing to bring the swelling to a head. An in cision should then be made with a sharp knife, and the part firmly squeezed. The discharge is sometimes of a fluid char acter, or it may present a fibrous appear ance. In either case, after expulsion, the. opening should be washed, preferably with some disinfectant solution, and then tied up to exclude dirt. Should a corn be noticeable, it should be pared away, with out, ho...
POULTRY FOR PROFIT SMALL FLOCKS AND RUNS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 2 May 1906
POULTRY FOR PROFIT SMALL FLOCKS AND RUNS. Truly, the whirligig: of time works some startling changes. A few years since, old country authorities gravely affirmed that not more than sixty head of fowls could with safety be allowed to an acre of land. Then, of course, the idea was to run the birds in one or more large flocks. Now, however, we have grown wiser, and have found among other things that so far from large flocks running on practically unlimited areas being the cor rect thing, small ones, say twenty-five at most, and these in comparatively small runs or yards, give by far the best re sults.

RABBITS AROUND CUMNOCK. We (Orange ''Leader1') are credibly in formed that rabbiters around Cumnock are making phenomenal wages ; one man is reported as having made ,£19 6s. out of the skins alone, in one week, and £7 out of the scalps for the same week. This person caught no less than 1200 rabbits in one night. As a result of this success, nearly everyone who can get away is going rabbiting round Cumnock — but still they come !
THE SALARIES OF INSPECTORS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 2 May 1906
THE SALARIES OF INSPECTORS. A letter from the Lands Department, submitted at a meeting1 of the Bathurst Pastures Protection Board, gave it as the Crown . Solicitor's opinion that the Pas tures Protection Act does not entitle ,;b'oards to pay inspectors any. amount as . aiiicuy hi cxucsa oj. uiai jiavu uy iiic ivxiu ister. With a view to determining what action is practicable in the direction of protecting landholders from the 'inroads of rabbits from Crown reserves and unoccu pied lands in the . Bathursi district, the Minister has written to the board asking what reserves in their opinion might with out prejudice to the public interest be placed under occupation, and in what cases the fencing-in of areas with rabbit proof netting would secure the desired result. ' The board has requested the dis ;rict surveyor to secure the necessary in formation. ' ? -
THE NETTING DIFFICULTY. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 2 May 1906
§ THE NETTING DIFFICULTY. I Writing to a contemporary, Mr. G. H. i Hebden, of Erambie, . iviolong, says : — For !;. my part, I think that those individuals f who are not pinched for means act wisely :| in deciding that if they err, it shall.. be v\ in favour of extra efficiency rather than b cheapness. But I have always held that |,; the boards make a mistake in insisting |l on a netting so costly as to deter most peo ^1 pie from fencing at all, because I think 'j far better general results would be obtaiii [ ed by having, say, 80 per cent. of. the hold I ings fenced with a fairly effective stan I dard than by having only, say, 30 per cent. | of them fenced with the best. t

CROWN AREAS INFESTED. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 2 May 1906
CROWN AREA8 INFESTED. ^ v A wire from Molong- says : — The casq, y-,at Forbes, recbrding the imprisonment of I jtwo farmers for not having satisfactorily .^destroyed rabbits on their holdings; pre 1 ents features on all fours with those of |- ases in this district. There are a num \ er of reserves .here which are mere \ reeding-grounds for vermin, and which , lough the occupants of the latter use - ery endeavour to keep their land free ^ j -m rabbits and hares, they are unsuc ' - ssful, for the simple reason that the I own land close by furnishes v an ever j creasing supply. The remedy, of course, i netting, but wire' is so expensive that 1 ly men with capital can manage , to ? i ike the necessary improvements. The - ly alternative- appears to consist in the c ting up of the unnecessary reserves, I ^ i the curtailment of some of, those - \ ich are needed, conditionally, upon the \ Ping free of vermin of the, whole area ? D the settlers, who secure the land. -

ACTIVE OPERATIONS AT PEAK HILL. A wire from Peak . Hill says : — A large number of men are engaged in the rabbit trapping industry.

The suggestion that foxes should be protected as a means of destroying rabbits is ridiculed by practical men on the land.
