I THE DRIED FRUIT INDUSTRY. ?3 SUCCESSFUL WORK AT WACGA EXPERIMENTAL FARM ORCHARD. At the orchard and cannery at the Wagga Experiment Farm (says the Wagga 'Advertiser'), the students, un der Mr. S. A. Hog-g-'s supervision, are busy packing' sultanas, which are now all dried, in boxes ready for market. Prunes are going through their final pro cesses also, and the returns so far have been very satisfactory, approximately ag gregating from twelve to fifteen tons of .' dried fruit of excellent quality. Some exceptionally nne oaves are aiso in course of pickling, the trees this year growing the heaviest and best crop on record. With a view to the encouragement of the J late fruit industry, special attention is be ''?-%$ ing given to grapes, heavily laden vines 'III' bearing magnificent bunches of the black M Tokay, black Cornichon, white Daria, m and other choice varieties.

HOW TO GROW MUSHROOMS. A SIMPLE METHOD. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 2 May 1906
HOW TO GROW MUSHROOMS. A SIMPLE METHOD. Following any spell of wet weather, mushrooms are always to be seen in the windows of the better class city fruiterers. But with the passing of the condition which calls this edible growth into exist ence the supply ceases, and mushrooms are once more conspicuous by their ab ? sence. . u, u, ?*, t T ?¥* 1* There is' really no shadow of a' reason why this should be so, as, lacking the natural condition necessary to their giowth it can be produced by artificial means, and the crop which has hitherto been dependent on the vagaries of the weather becomes as much assured to the cultivator as does any other for which he prepares the soil and sows. We say as much assured, but that expression is not strong enough, as nearly all crops require moisture, failing which they can be but a partial success at the most. * * * I With the mushroom, however, the pre I paration of the beds', provided the proper I situation is chosen and the preliminaries I rigidly...

THE MAN UPON THE LAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 2 May 1906
THE MAN UPON THE LAND. The folk who live by politics May gad in tram and train, And twirl about nice walking-sticks In hands they fear to stain. Their only business is to talk And tax, while smiling bland, The man who grafts in muddy pants— The man upon the land. They swill champagne, wear silken hats; They live at fine hotels; . They count their guineas — not the 'sprats,' They swagger as great swells. Their wives and daughters only play Upon pianos grand, But the man who pays for all the style, Is the man upon the land. The patent, glib-tongued candidate Disdains all toil and moil. By practice he has learned to prate Of robbers on the soil. He covets their possessions and Would stretch forth an eager hand To seize the hard-won earnings from The man upon the land. Why should they make Australia great ? They care alone for fees — Four hundred quid drawn from the State, AH else that they may seize. Like flowers) they toil not, neither spin, Yet Solomon the Grand Was not so grand as t...

It affects young more frequently than old ani mals, and never occurs in calves under six months old, unless fed on other than a milk diet.

SOMETHING ACCOMPLISHED. The recent movement by the Dubbo Pas tures ' Protection Board and various bran ches of the Farmers and Settlers ' Associa (says Dubbo 'Liberal') seems to be lead ing to results.

SETTLERS FROM ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 2 May 1906
SETTLERS FROM ENGLAND. Our London correspondent, writing on March 23, stated that during the next fortnight following that date over 50 set tlers would be leaving for New South Wales, and 140 others were in hand. The Intelligence Department in London is con fining its efforts entirely to settlers who are willing to go and work in the country dtafi'iAfft The 'Householders' League,' London, announces that if certain considerations were shown by the Australian Govern ments the league would send out hundreds of young women. The desire of the young women is to form a settlement around the towns and raise poultry, fruit, and other agricultural products. They would also be willing to marry. [Is there an inference here that there is a scarcity of Australian girls,- or that they are not will ing to marry ? — Ed. F. and S.']

VICTORIAN FARMERS AND SOCIALISM. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 2 May 1906
VICTORIAN FARMERS AND SOCIALISM. A wire from Melbourne, dated 21st inBt., says :— The Farmers' League has for po litical purposes formed an alliance with the, Victorian Employers' Federation and the Australian Women's National League, and an anti-socialistic programme has been adopted. , Touching on the present position in, Federal politics the report says .?— ' Mindful of the fact that our association exists for the purpose of opposing socialism, we feel it incum bent upon . us to condemn the conduct of. Mr. Deakin in forming an alliance with the socialist party, which a few months before he had so vehemently denounced. The resolution condemning the union label was taken up so assiduously by the bran ches that we cannot doubt its effect upon those politicians who were inclined to wav er, but who finally voted against the mea suro. Another matter upon which our pro nouncement of opinion met with universal approval amongst producers was the ques tion of the alteration of the date of ...
A FARMER CONVICTED OF WHEAT-STEALING. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 2 May 1906
A FARMER CONVICTED OF WHEAT-STEALING. At the Wyalong Quarter Sessions last week, Henry Heidtmann, a farmer, and Herbert Perrott, a laborer, were charged with stealing seven bags of wheat, the property of Allan Heislip. The jury con victed Perott of stealing and Heidtmann of receiving, and each prisoner was sen tenced to 12 months' imprisonment with hard lahm* in flriuihnrh crani. Tlir* evi dence for the Crown went to show that in January last Heislip missed some wheat from his paddock, where it was bagged up in stacks. Subsequently the police took proceedings against Peter Kennedy, a farmer, and the case was withdrawn. On making further inquiries, the police arrested both accused.
WHO IS RESPONSIBLE? [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 2 May 1906
WHO IS RESPONSIBLE? Some time ago arrangements were made by Mr. Sutton, manager of the Cowra Experimental Farm, for the con duct of certain wheat-growing trials in the Condobolin district, on private fa-ms. The seed was to have been supplied by and put in under the supervision of the Department. A correspondent, writing from Condobolin, states that up to the present no seed has come to hand, and most of the farmers have their crops al ready sown. They look upon this with regret, since much interest centered in the proposed trials. Complaints of a. similar kind come from one of the south ern districts.
SCARCITY OF FARM LABORERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 2 May 1906
SCARCITY OF FARM LABORERS. A wire from Bowraville says : — Labor is unobtainable here at any price.' Old res idents state that laborers were never so scarce at any time within their experience as they are now. Every available hand is engaged corn-pulling. Of course, a slackness will come when the harvest is secured. Other seasons there have al ways been a fair number of travellers looking for employment, and their ab sence this year is a reliable indication of the prosperity of the country districts throughout the whole of the State.
