THE NEW BOARD OF INQUIRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 16 May 1906
THE NEW BOARD OF INQUIRY. In another part of this issue mention is made or. the fact that an independent board o* inquiry is to be appointed for the purpose of making- investigation con cerning1 certain areas of land on the North Coast. This with a view to en able the Minister for Lands to decide how such areas shall be dealt with, and to re move the. work with its responsibility from the shoulders of the officers of the department. If this is not the .explana tion of the board-creating movement, then namely, that the officers of the depart ment are not qualified to serve as advisers to the Minister. In either case,, the de partment must appear in an unfavorable light before the public, who have already had their eyes opened to the existence of many undesirable conditions which would never be found in any well-regulated, pro perly-administered department. Either the Minister has no confidence in the offi cials under him in the Lands, or the office is undermanned. Mr. Ashton would fi...

Barry said that in. his opinion the Cooradigbee flats produced maize equal to the Tumut product, which he con sidered the best in the world.
THE GOVERNOR-GENERAL AT BOURKE. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 16 May 1906
?^^^-. ^ ^ ^ -. ^ ^ THE GOVERNOR-GENERAL AT BOURKE. Lord Northcote, Governor-General, when at Bourke last week, in the course of his tour through the State, referred to the water problem. He said : — ' In .coming to this part of Australia he was endeavouring to carry out his duties by seeing as much of Australia as he could. He thought that it was the best way not only to serve this country, but his coun trymen at home. In consequence of the many thousands of miles which separated them it was not easy for people to come and- go, and the consequence was that an extraordinary amount of ignorance prevailed as to conditions that existed in Australia. He spoke warmly in favour of the pluck and energy of the people who faced drought and hard conditions of life, and he had come to the conclusion that in sticking to it as they had they must still have great confidence in the fu ture prospects of the district. He was sorry his stay was so short, but he had yet to travel over a great part of ...

LAND VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 16 May 1906
LAND VARIETIES. A wire from Munvillumbah says : — Forty blocks in the parishes of Dun bible, Moball, Chilling-ham and Nullum will be thrown open for conditional pur chase next month. These lots will make nice holding's for dairying- and agricul tural purposes. Mr. W. C. Bowman, of Derowie, suf fered a big- loss last week. He had pur chased 350 head of cattle out Forbes way, and had only had them in his paddocks a couple of clays when about 150 of them died, apparently from the effects of eat a poisonous weed as they were being- tra [ veiled. . Sir Samuel McCaughey, we are in formed, (says Narrandera 'Argus'') is arranging for the immigration of seventy young' men from his native district of Ballymena. There is an agitation at Deepwater, Dundee, and Bolivia to have about 7000 or t-000 acres of land at Castlerag- and Pyc's Creek made available for settle ment. At present, like many similar areas, it is locked up in a mining- reserve, although no mining- is being- done there. A public ...
FOR CLOSER SETTLEMENT MINING RESERVE TO BE THROWN OPEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 16 May 1906
FOR CLOSER SETTLEMENT MINING RESERVE TO BE THROWN OPEN. A wire from Tenterfield says : — At the Tenterfield Land Court on Saturday, the board held an inquiry, under reference from the Minister, as to the proposal to set apart a portion of Deepwater Gold field, in the parish of Romney, available for settlement. The inquiry was brought about by a petition presented to the Min ister for Land, from the Deepwater Pro gress Committee. The petition contained about 300 signatures, two-thirds of which . were those of miners, who realised that the land was worthless as regards mining, as no mineral of any payable quantity g had been found on the reserve. The land I includes the whole of Castlerag Goldfield, j and contains between 4000 and 5000 acres of good agricultural land. Mr. Thomas, solicitor, appeared for the petitioners. j After hearing evidence, the board reported ? to the Minister for Lands as fol lows: — (1) We recommend that the portion of Deepwater Reserve as pro posed be revoked,...

LAND FOR SETTLEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 16 May 1906
LAND FOR SETTLEMENT. The demand for land for settlement, especially in the coastal districts, con tinues so brisk that the Minister for Lands has determined upon having a thorough investigation made, with the ob ject of ascertaining what lands there are that might be made available for settle ment. On the North Coast particularly immense areas are locked up as timber reserves, and there is a distinct tendency on the i-art of officials to resist the un Inckintr nf those lands, nn thp. nip.a that such a course would involve the destruc tion of a very valuable asset in the shape of the timber they carry. Reports have been asked for repeatedly, but these do not satisfy the people who are on the lookout for home blocks. The Dorrigo was a case in point, where some of the best land in the State was locked up, and there is a growing feeling that other timber reserves should be thrown open for settlement. Mr. Ashton is desirous of obtaining a complctclv independent re port that will satisfy ...
MUDGEE LABOUR FARM. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 16 May 1906
MUDCEE LABOUR FARM. The idea of establishing a labour farm at Mudgee has not been abandoned ; it is merely awaiting the necessary legis lation to authorise its creation. The Minister for Works states that he will introduce a bill next session to vest in him the power to establish such institu tions, and his intention is to give effect to the proposal for a farm about 10 miles from Mudgee. There is a large reserve there, and it is intended to utilise in the labour farm that area to the western side of the Mudgee-Cobborah road. The site is regarded as central, being close to the route of the projected line of railway from Mudgee to Cobborah. and in the centre of what is believed to be destined to become a very prolific wheat-producing centre. It is fair, therefore, to assume, Mr. Lee thinks, tliat men sent to the farm would be able to find a certain amount of work in the locality,' and micht be induced by such a consideration to' keep away from the city. Mudgee has also the advantage ...
UNAVAILING RUSH FOR LAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 16 May 1906
UNAVAILING RUSH FOR LAND. The Tcnterfield Land Board last week took lengthy evidence from nine conflict ing applicants for a small area on Deep water holding. Three names were se lected to ballot, and Charles Moule was the successful applicant. One of the un successful applicants was Mr. Cadcll, son of the owner of Deepwatcr Station. All the applicants were summoned to attend, and came by train. Some were in town two days, and paid legal and other ex penses. Next day the board announced that Mr. Cadell, the owner of Deepwater, had written to say the land was not available and this was proved correct. Therefore the ballot is invalid. Much astonishment is expressed.

THE SOUTH-WESTERN DISTRICTS. — — — — ^H The Minister for Lands, wh'o ' went JJ through the South-western districts with I the State Governor, states that the whole fi of the country through which he travelled If looked well. .Mr. Ashton was struck by ffl the comparative absence of rabbits, R which to him was particularly gratifying. jj| Between Corowa and Barellan he saw' only, ffl one rabbit, and very few along the road |£ from Narrandera to Hay. He gathered M from conversations that the majority of |j the landholders are unremitting in their m war against the pest. In addition to fl poisoning, the digging out of warrens 1 has proved one of the most effective me- I thods of keeping rabbits down, the results I achieved by this process being wonderful -\ in some instances. The settlers look for- m ward with a good deal of confidence to the $\ coming season. £]

THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT ACT. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 16 May 1906
THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT ACT. A farmer, writing us from Hay, thus pointedly gives his opinion on the Local Government Act :— ' I don't think much of our Local Government Act, which prac tically lets off the big freeholder from a land tax, and throws the extra expense on the small man, who is already contri buting more than his share towards the revenue of the country, in trying to get extra from his small holding, and helping to make our railways pay, as well as ex tending the commerce of the country, while the whole community has to make up the debit of railways run to the big landholders' doors.'

TO MY HOPED-FOR CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 16 May 1906
TO MY HOPED-FOR CORRES PONDENTS. To my hoped-for correspondents. — My mother, Mrs. Ernest Favenc, has been on the 'Stock and Station Journal' for S years, shopping for their country sub scribers, and her success has emboldened me to hope that the farmers and settlers tiers will accord me as generous a wel come as she received from the stock and station folk. I have for some time assisted Mrs. Favenc in this shopping work, and thor oughly appreciate and know the difficul ties on both sides. Often I have heard my mother say, 'Really, for vears I be lieve the country people believed I was playing a kind of' confidence trick on them, a kind of 'You send me your money and see what I will send in return.' ' But this was in the 'once upon a time,' and her business now of buying for coun try people advances ; it never decreases or remains at a standstill, and at the pre sent time she is — well, as busy as I hope to be. I am not begging- your custom; I am going on common-sense lines. Here I ...
HUCKABACK WORK. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 16 May 1906
HUCKABACK WORK. Have you ever attempted Huckaback work? It is so simple and quick; there are no books of instruction, but a small piece commenced on the tie, cushion, or whatever article you are working, is better than all tin.' w.ittcn instructions in the world. The Huckabcick .ties and waistcoats especially look well; they ap pear quite shoppy and smart, not label led home made, as one would think to be the case, as Fancy work and a man's wardrobe at first thoughts do not seem to agree — but 1 forgot, of course, his tie and waistcoat are a man's most decora tive points. It is popularly supposed, is it not r that it takes longer to tie a masculine tie than for a fashionable woman to arrange her hat, and men are very faddy over their ties, no doubt. In our shopping work we see many queer things, and one funny incident that I remember was in connection with a Huckaback tie. It was in a lift in a large shop in town. With the rest of the passengers was one of the shop employ ees, and h...

— THE WOMEN'S PAGE. -::^:tz-z^ EDITED BY AIMCE FAVENC. ^S FANCY NEEDLEWORK. 1 have always found Marguerite work to be such a popular form of needlework, being both easy and inexpensive, that 1 have decided that a Marguerite table centre shall form the subject of my first fancy-work article in this paper. The materials needed are : — gold mercerised cotton for the hearts of the daisies, van dyke braid for the petals, and 4- yards of gold satin ribbon to form the frame work for the. daisies. To make the heart 01 me cuusy, use a nne sieei crocnei hook and work I! chain, join, and into the top of each chain work 2 double crochet. The next row is 1 double crochet, 2 double crochet, and repeat this 1 double crochet, 2 double crochet for 4 more rows. Your stitches should now number 24. and there is no necessity for any further increase, so the oth and 6tli rows will be worked solely with 1 double crochet. This will have the ef fect of raising' the centre, and your work should resemble a pe...
