THE WESTERN LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 2 May 1906

THE WESTERN LANDS. On the return of the Western Land Board from a three weeks' tour of the south-western part of the western divi sion, one of the members (Mr. McMasters) reported that the country in that portion is, generally speaking, in a very much better condition than it has been for a long time. There are, he says, unmiBtake n \\\ a ntri /lonAAO + Vi n 4* +1ia r\ti rtnl a Via-trn Ana troyed the rabbits in very large numbers. At Wentworth it was learned that seve ral new people required land for grazing purposes, and the advisability of with drawing one-eighth of the areas was im pressed upon the commissioners. There is a provision in the Western Lands Act under which one-eighth of the land may be withdrawn from settlement. This can be done at any time, and the lessees are compensated by an extension of the lease for a period not exceeding six years. The lessees generally appeared to be in good heart. They have a low rent and long leases. In the Western Division there are only ...

CAPONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 2 May 1906

CAPONS. Just now we hear much about capons, and the usual crop of enthusiasts are loudly extolling the system. No doubt about it, caponising has its advantages — and also its drawbacks. A capon does not mature so early by far as a cockerel ; his development is put back or deferred ; therefore, in order to derive the greatest benefit it is necessary to feed them for a much longer period. Some advocates of rlin «\'Str»m m.iko r-vri-nv:ifr:ir-t r-lnimc nn its behalf, and relate wonderful stories of the rapid increase of weight and size shown by the capons as compared with the cockerels of the same age. Certain experiments, however, carried out at the Rhode Island (U.S.) experiment station, showed but a trifling difference — a matter of a few ounces in favor of the capon. * * * It is a curious fact that a capon will rear chickens like' any old hen. One shown at the 'Royal' some years ago with a family around him, over which he clucked complacently, afforded much amusement.

Despite this, the returns are in every way satis factory. .
