STRYCHNINE AND JAM. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 16 May 1906

STRYCHNINE AND JAM. A farmer out Cudal way, who has a large holding, and who lost fully half his crop last season owing- to the depreda tions of rabbits, states that since he start ed to use jam and strychnine baits he has clone great destruction. He looks upon this bait as the most efficacious possible of use, and claims that if it were adopted throughout the country the rabbit would soon be under control, and there would be no need for incurring1 the heavy ex penditure necessitated bv wire netting. A teaspoonful of strychnine to a tin of jam will make hundreds of baits, and the rabbit dies as' soon as he takes one. In some cases very large wages are being made in his part of the district by rabbit crs. One man has single-handed made over ,£20 in two weeks'. It is reported by the district inspector that rabbits are very few in numbers all through the country in which simultaneous poisoning was carried out a fortnight ago.

ON DAIRY-CATTLE BREEDING. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 16 May 1906

ON DAIRY-CATTLE BREEDING. Mr. P. F. Quirk, of the Berry stud farm, has been lecturing the Berry far mers on how to raise dairy cattle. He was very strong on the blunt-nosed co\y. Report says: — The Berry stud farm is noted for its blunt-nosed stock — hence the violent strictures. Every public school bov in dairying centres can instantly de tect a defective muzzle in cither a dairy cow or bull. The wonder is, why didn't Mr. puirk, when lecturing on the com mercial value of a cow, centre his argu ment on the business end of the animal, nnrl hnw to imnrove it? A dairv cow without an udder is like a ship without a helm — he shouldn't have forgotten that. These dairy experts, however, arc, ap parently, ever and always pleased when u-.parc an address based on ideals. But where the satire comes in is when these experts expound theories which they never can achieve in practice. Hence we can, with a certain degree of candour announce that Mr. Quirk has seen good cows in his time, but cannot ...

THE DAIRYMAN. DAIRY FARM EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 16 May 1906

— - THE DAIRYMAN. ;5a£ 2 7 I ??i^'?';'-g By FRANR McCAFFREY. DAIRY FARM EDUCATION. There are two values to be placed on the education of the dairyman. First, that value that is to be placed on the men who can make dairying pay under the most unfavourable conditions; and, second, those who make a brilliant suc cess of dairying' when things are favour able. The governing of this State has in stituted a system which is next-door to robbery. For ' instance, a farmer has been successful in breeding a herd of dairy stock, not once, but twice or three times. The Government make it compul sory for two lectures to be delivered each, year. Why do they make it compulsory on Agricultural bocieties to deliver two lectures each year to gain a subsidy ? The object is this : The Government send a man to lecture whose opinion on any subject is worth next to nothing ; but they hope to gain a lecture from a practical man in return, whose opinion is worth thousands of pounds to the State. A farmer's kn...

To the Editor, "The Farmer & Settler." [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 16 May 1906

To the Editor, ' The Farmer & Settler.' Sir, — ' Ajax ' has shifted his pitch and there is nothing under this heading, in his letter of 2nd inst., that is worth reply ing to. He is, however, perfectly correct as to the action of squatters before the Act of 1861. No doubt their policy was short-sighted and tyrannical, and since that date very few men from their ranks have been elected as representatives. It is only by looking back into the past that we can in some measure discount the future. In the history of our race our character istic stands out prominently. VVe have ntever yet suffered tyrants of any class or descrintion verv lonir. Kinirs and principalities have gone down before this virile race. It is scarcely likely, therefore, that we are going to stand the present tyranny of political trades unionism very much longer, nor suf fer the Socialists to crawl all over us. The mistake has almost invariably been made, viz., that the pendulum has been allowed to swing too fa...

A PROGRESSIVE LAND TAX. To the Editor, "The Farmer and Settler." [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 16 May 1906

A PROGRESSIVE LAND TAX. To the Editor. 'The Farmer and Settler.' Sir, — B. Witenden, in your columns, objects to the above tax because it would depreciate land values one half, and thus leave without margin of security many small farmers who have bought on terms. He sees nothing but ruin for the small man with a mortgage, in the proposal. The contention looks so plausible, at first sight, that it is worth reply. It is true that land values are given by land buyers, and if there are more sellers than buvers the sneciilative vnlup. wnniri disappear. But it is doubtful if agricul tural land in this State has at the present time much speculative value, its price is rather fixed by what buyer and seller es timate to be its use value. That is also the value that a wise banker or money lender takes account of when making ad vances. This use value is regulated in the first place not by the number of buy ers or sellers, but by the price of pro ducts. A heavy and lasting fall in the price of ...

THE PAPER AS AN EDUCATOR. A SUGGESTION TO FARMERS. To the Editor "The Farmer and Settler." [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 16 May 1906

THE PAPER AS AN EDUCATOR. A SUGGESTION TO FARMERS. To the Editor 'The Farmer and Settler.' Sir, — Reading the weekly correspon dence in the 'Farmer and Settler' is a very great source of enjoyment to me. Besides being an education, I feel as sured that the various opinions and ex pressions of practical men from all parts of the State, is now rapidly doing the work which our F. and S. Association hks had in hand so many years, viz., irivirnr our small land holders a better knowledge of each other, and of their local conditions, showing how farmers in one district can assist those of another part of the State living under totally dif ferent local conditions ; and thereby des troying that petty jealousy which fre quently existed between districts so situ ated. When I read the letters of your corres pondents, most of whom I know, and many of whom are close friends, I feel at times as if they were all round me 'again, and I hear their voices ringing in my ears. Seeing then, how much '-oo...

AUSTRALIA'S GREY CURSE. PROFITABLE WORK. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 16 May 1906

^AUSTRALIA'S GREY CURSE. ii ? ^^ ? . - . ?---.__--, PROFITABLE WORK. A wire from Molong' says : — Great Quantities of quinces are being- purchased locally at the present time. It appears that quince jam is found to be the very best for mixing: with strychnine for rab bit poisoning- purposes, hence the demand for this class of fruit. The price paid for quinces is about five guineas per ton. Rabbits are fewer in numbers just now than they have been for a whole year, and it is stated that the ten days' simul taneous poisoning- has' proved very effec tive. All parts of the district report diffi culty in securing- farm hands, owing- to the g-ood money which can now be made by trapping and poisoning. At Cum nock one man made ,£19 6s. in one week out of skins alone, as well as £7 out of scalps. He caught 1200 rabbits in one night.

SIMPLY PERSONAL. We want to increase the size of the ' Farmer and Settler.' Each issue we are compelled, for want of space, to hold over many news items and valuable contributions which lose some of their interest and point through delay. But we are hardly strong enough to increase the size just yet. We must have some more adver tisements first, and every farmer and set tler can help us to get these. Oh, yes, you can, and the method is a simple' one. Deal only with those firms who are now advertising with us, and let them know you saw their advertisements in this paper. Our president says we know no party but our own, and those that are not with us must be against us. Just so I Farmers and settlers, a lot of the big concerns in Sydney are against us, and the sooner you let them know you know it, the better for our growth.

DEATH OF MR. DAVID REID [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 16 May 1906

DEATH OF MR. DAVID REID The news of the decease of Mr. David Reid, of Moorwatha, will be received with general regret by the pioneers of the Farmers' and Settlers' Association. Mr.. Reid was one of the founders .of the As sociation and occupied the position of Vice-President, and for many years was an ardent worker in the cause of settle ment. Although Mr Reid had long passed man's allotted span of three score and ten, he was a strenuous worker to the end. At the recent Conference at Corowa ' Mr. Reid was in evidence in the interests of his district, and at that meeting he in rormea our eauor mat it was nis inten tion if he was spared to visit the next Annual Conference of the Association. A worker to the last, David Reid has de parted, but his memory will long remain with all who knew him as one honorable, unselfish, and upright, of whom might well be said : 'Well done, thou good and faithful servant.'

THE PAPER AND ITS CRITICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 16 May 1906

THE PAPER AND ITS CRITICS.

We have been charged, by innuendo if not in so many words, with political par I tisanship, and with supporting the P present Government because, for I sooth, the parties whose actions we I have condemned happened to be I opposed to it. This criticism has I not given us much concern, for the I simple reason that we knew that I those who indulged in it were not I likely to be taken seriously by any 1 one who knew their temper and who § understood the situation.

THE ENGLISH BOY ON AUS-TRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 16 May 1906

THE ENGLISH BOY ON AUS TRALIA. Recent disclosures prove conclusively that the lantern lectures illustrative of New South Wales, now being delivered in the higher grade public schools of England, by Mr. Clarke, of the Agent Lrenerars Department, are needed. There is a lamentable ignorance of Australia amongst all classes in Great Britain, and even those who have within their reach the best sources of information do not seem able to get away from the old idea that the colonies are still peopled by a race of black savages, while those who are better informed on that point still require enlic-hteninc- on the rnnrlirinn-5 nf life— social, commercial, industrial, and political — existing here. The lectures now being delivered are intended to serve that purpose, and the report from Mr. Coghlan's office favours the assumption that good work is being accomplished, as a distinct improvement is said to be already noticeable as a result of Mr. Clark's efforts. It is hinted, however, that the te...
