A Maitland Industry. The Growing and Manufacture of Millet. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
© A Maitland Industry. The Growing and Manufacture of Millet. (By D. J. H.) If the present is a sample of Mr. Wragge's drvest year, then the Mait land farmer would do well to be pre pared for the time when his wettest year comes along. The rich soil of the Maitland dis trict is at present showing the result of a bounteous and continuous rain. In every direction growth is pheno menal. In the crops of maize, where the busy farmer has failed to keep them clean, the weeds are as high as the maize itself. Lucerne cuts are depreciating in value, owing to the grass that has grown up. As a re sult of the good season in many cases, whole cuts have been destroyed by the rain, for no sooner would the lucerne be turned over to dry, than further showers would fall, and keep it in a moist condition until the whole lot is not lit to stack, unless layered with salt. Fortunately, the season is. so boqfttiful and feed so plentiful,' that it is hardly necessary to go to the expense of saving the sodde...

MARKETING BROOM MILLET. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
MARKETING BROOM MILLET. Growers of broom millet are ad vised to secure a copy of the bulletin issued by the Department of Agri culture, dealing with the cultivation' and marketing of broom millet. It is scarcely necessary to point out that the most profitable results from this crop are obtainable only by using up-to-date and scientific methods. The first portion of the bulletin deals mainly with the ques tion of cultivation, mid although it may seem rather late in the season to offer advice on this point, yet there is no reason why farmers should not improve their Knowledge in good time to secure the best re sults from the next crop. However,, as the time is now ripe in some dis tricts for harvesting and marketing,, opportune. When a farmer is con fronted with such terms as " inside," "cover," "hurl," &c., he naturally asks to know the relative values of these technicalities. They are, however, more trade terms than agricultural designations . and are briefly defined in the ...
P. P. Boards. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
P. P. Boards. The Molong P.P. Board received an application from tlie Lands Depart ment for the board to state whether there were any objections to the con version by William Mills of a special lease for grazing. The board asked the Lands Depart ment to hold over the application for conversion, pending the consideration of the whole question of reserved land in the district by the special inquiry board recently appointed by the Min ister for Lands. Mr. Palmer, who is a member of that special board, said that his ap pointment necessitated his resigna tion as a member of the P.P. board. The resignation was accepted with re gret. The board decided to co-operate with the Cobar P.P. Board in seeking an amendment of the Pastures Pro tection Act, to make ear-marking of sheep compulsory and branding optional. It was decided not to co-operate with the Hunter P.P. Board in an ef fort to secure an amendment to have travelling stock permits signed by consignees of sheep as receipts, and returne...
Cultivation FARMING " DRY" COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
Q &lt;? 0,= =£> «* Cultivation P FARMING " DRY" COUNTRY. Mr. Anderson., in the course of his paper read before the Dry Farming Conference., thought it necessary to utter a note ot warning. " The bet ter conditions lately experienced in Australia." lie said, " permit the thought that seasons are changing for the better, but we have merely to examine the historical records of tho past century to find that we have had in fairly regular sequence dry periods, severe droughts, and good -seasons. In weather, what has been .will be. We shall have very bad droughts again in their c^jle. but we are gradually learning what our fathers did not know-how to rob them of their worst terrors. It be hoves us as men regarding things in the calm light of reason and dispas sionate judgment to do nothing what soever that will make a boom m dry lands.. " Good seasons tempted men in our State to go beyond the boundaries of safe farming many years ago, and to day the sad results are too apparent....

EVAPORATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
EVAPORATION. Some information on evaporation from soils,, given by Mr. H. C. XJ. Anderson at tne Dry Farming Con ference in Adelaide., will probably be news to many of our readers. Mr. Anderson said : " The evaporation tests in the American States agree fairly well with our own. During the six summer months there it is found to vary from 21in. to 72in. It sounds a little paradoxical to say that in a region with lOin. rainfall the evaporation is 72in.. but this merely indicates the amount of mois ture that will be evaporated from the soil or from a water surface., if it be available. Tanks of an exactly similar design are constructed in many parts 01 the dry area. 8ft. in diameter. 2ft. deep., with 4in. above the surface., containing water level with the ground. The rate of evap oration from a wet soil surface is about the same as from an exposed surface of water in the tank. " Very wet dark soils will lose more rapidly than a water surface while wet light-coloured soils lose at the ...

METROPOLITAN BRANCH. At tlie annual meeting of the Metropolitan branch, Mr. J. W. Lugs-. din in^tlxe chair, the secretary in his review of the year, regretted that nothing further had been done in the direction of forming an agricul tural organising body, either inde pendently, or." with the aid of the metropolitan branch.

OXLEY ISLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
OXLEY I6L.AND. At a large and representative gath ering at Oxley Island, on the 15th inst., it was decided to establish a new branch of the Association, Mr. J. W. Evans being appointed secre tary, and Mr. W. N. i-iee, treasurer, pro tem. Mr. Evans, in a letter to the general secretary, suggests that if a good lecturer visited the district a' lot of interest could be aroused, and probably a number of branches formed, as it was a large dairying district, and contained three butter factories. A meeting has been call ed for Saturday, to be held at Croki, for the purpose of establishing a branch. The Oxley Island branch has already 20 members, with many more coming in. "Mr. Evans, in writing to the general secretary, observes:-"I have been reared on a dairy farm, and have been milking since I was eight years old, and you will noi think I have been overworked wher I tell you I am 16 stone in weighi with a chest measurement of 48 m ches." Evidently another bad casi of child slavery!

He was also striving to get branches established at Cooper' nook, Moorland, Lansdowne, etc.
ARMATREE BRANCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
ARMATREE BRANCH. A meeting of the 'Armatree brand Avas held on the 4 th inst. It was rt ' solved to ask the Railway Commis sioners to build a grain slied at th siding, capable of holding 15,00i bags, and this Association to guar antee interest. The' secretary was. also instructed to ask the Minister for Lands to push on the surveying of the township blocks, which work has been promised some time, and there are a number of people want 'iiig blocks for building purposes. An animated discussion took place in re gard'to the want of a bridge across the river, as all the farmers, or the principal wheat growers, are on the opposite side of the river from the railway, and as there is every pros pect of a great quantity of grain having to cross the river, a bridge is an absolute necessity.
A CONCESSION WANTED. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
A CONCESSION WANTED. The Peel River closer settlement farmers, to tiie number of between 40 and 50, chiefly delegates from various progress associations, held a meeting in Tamworth, and decided to seek a concession from the Govern ment with regard to the instalment falling due in June next, which they wished to have postponed, and they also wish to have all the succeeding instalments made payable on the first of the following January, in stead of in June. The chairman, Mr. Hoban, of G'oonoo Goonoo Creek, gave some solid reasons for this ac tion. He said they all considered they were entitled to some conces sions in the matter of payment of their instalments, as since they had gone on the land they had met with a good deal of bad luck. They took up the land at a bad time of the year, too late to get in a crop the first year. The following year, after they had put all their energy, skill and capital into their holdings their crops were cut off by the disastrous frost, and to-day they ...

THE WEATHER. ' Monday -was a wet day throughout the State, excepting the metro politan area, North Coast and North-Western slopes. On the South Coast, Eden and Bega registered 3 and 4 inches respectively for the week end ing 21st. Katoomba still leads with 38 inches since the New Year, Eden following with 31, and Picton 28 inches. On the North Coast, Lismore and Grafton have had the goodly supply of 20 inches since January 1st, -which city folk can gauge by the fact that Sydney has had only 2 inches more in what seemed an unending wet period till a few weeks back; Dry Bourke has had its 6'/a inches, and Brewarrina and Collaren ebri have received 7 and 9 inches for the New Year. In the Riverina, Wagga with 10, Henty 9, Coolamon and Cudgellico 8, and Narrandera 7 inches has assured good times ahead for that important growing centre.
