TERSE COMMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 16 May 1906
TERSE COMMENT. One of our correspondents thus refers to a writer in a contemporary who has been saying nasty thinirs about the ' Far mer and Settler1': — 'I am. however, in clined to think that his tears resemble those of a jew lizard over a China egg. He cannot swallow it because he cannot break it. I am sure he loves the farmers and settlers ; individually and collectively they despise him — and he knows it.' -?-i--a-ii-n»i--a-i»
THE FARRER MEMORIAL [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 16 May 1906
THE FARRER MEMORIAL. A meeting of the committee was held on Friday at Royal Agricultural Society's Rooms, when steps were taken to initiate subscription lists. The secretaries, Mr. G. Washington Walker and Mr. F. W. A. Downes, reported that they had in terviewed the leading millers and others interested in wheat, and had received very satisfactory promises of support. It is the earnest desire of the committee that the Memorial Fund should take the form of something that will stimulate the work started by the late Mr. Fairer, hence all whenttrrnwers and nil wlipai-li.inrllprs should have a direct interest in assisting the committee in their work. The secre taries were requested to have a circular letter drafted, and members of the com mittee undertook to have these distributed throughout the wheat-growing centres and the metropolis. Mr. P. M. Morton (the treasurer) will be pleased to receive subscriptions addressed to him at 45 Hun ter Street, Sydney.

OUR WOMEN'S PAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 16 May 1906
OUR WOMEN'S PAGE. This is what the ' Stock and Station Journal ' says about the lady who edits our 'Women's Page': — 'And so we . are losing Aimee Favenc and her needle work article in the ' Stock Journal.' I suppose it is ever the way of the world ; young people will go on growing, and if there is anything in them, their ambi tion grows with them. She has left us to start a ' Woman's Page ' in another pa per, and our best wishes go with her; she has certainly had a good education for such a venture, in the work she has helped her mother, Mrs. Favenc, to do on this paper, for our women subscribers, and has 'ever proved herself an energetic and conscientious worker.' It is reported from Baan Baa that ow ing to want of rain the outlook for pas toralists is the blackest since the break ing of the drought, three years ago.

General Review of the Markets. "Farmer and Settler" Office, Monday, 21st May, 9 p.m. GRAIN AND PRODUCE TRADE. WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 23 May 1906
;?? General Review of the Markets. —I 'Farmer and Settler' Office, Monday, 21st May, 9 p.m. GRAIN AND PRODUCE TRADE. WHEAT. Doings in wheat this week are easily written. In the absence of important new business, the market ^ must be re garded as substantially steady, but dull. Receipts and offerings are still restricted, this serving to hold the market, particu larly with the appearance of further Queensland orders in the near future. Against this, however, London is report ed weaker, but this weakness is counter s' acted by the cheaper freights now offer ? ing. Weather conditions have improved V but many districts' are in urgent need of I rain to complete the seed-bed for what H has been sown, and soften the soil for H ploughing for later wheat. A general H downpour north and west may depress H wheat values slightly, .but would ensure H promising yields for next harvest, so we H sincerely hope our wishes will be realised H ere our next report is issued. The fol ffl lowing are the m...

THE PEST DECREASES. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 23 May 1906
THE PEST DECREASES. I ? i It is reported from Wellington that rabbits throughout that district are show ing' a marked decrease. The general im pression is that they are making .their way further west, and a number of land owners are busily engaged wire-netting their properties. Trappers in some parts are still earning good wages. Grass and water. are plentiful, 'therefore lack of food cannot account for the diminishing num bers. Some of the farmers hold that the vigorous action employed for the destruc tion of the pest in the past is accountable for the thinning out, but the disappear ance is considered too sudden for that to be the case. Others seem to think the presence of so many foxes in the district of late has been the cause of the rabbit migrating. In the country around Oberon and Tar ana almost everyone who is able to set traps is being engaged. The rabbit in dustry is steadily increasing at Rydal, and will provide work for a great number of persons during winter. The rabbit...
PROTESTS FROM OTHER CENTRES. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 23 May 1906
PROTESTS FROM OTHER CENTRES. The opinion is growing, says a wire from Molong, owing to the high wages being earned by rabbiters throughout the district, that there are two sides to. the question of destruction through the med ium of disease, and the matter is being eagerly discussed. There are many in terests at stake, and whilst a remedy for the evil caused by the rabbit pest is eager ly looked forward to, resort to a device which might bring in its train troubles murli mnrii rliro tlinn tlir*cn frnm U'Vii/^l* the country is at present suffering, is 1 scouted by many folk, even amongst the | farming and selector classes.

THE CROPS ON THE CLARENCE. A wire from Grafton says : — Maize pul ling is in full swing on the Clarence, and the weather is all that can be desired for hervesting operations. The crops are turning out well, and large quantities are shipped, the Sydney steamers taking full cargoes. Digging the new crop of pota toes on the Guy tawkes has commenced, and a ready market is being found on the Clarence. The crop is a heavy one, the tubers being exceptionally large. The haulage to Grafton is about 60 miles, and teams are employed for the carriage of the potatoes.
OPPOSITION AT DUBBO. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 23 May 1906
OPPOSITION AT DUBBO. A wire from Dubbo says : — A petition against the Danysz experiment is now go ing round. It was before the Municipal Council on Tuesday night, and was order ed to lie on the table for signature of those who wished to sign it. The Mayor (Alderman J. Hcane) and Alderman Ryan expressed strong disapproval of the intro duction of a disease as detrimental to hu man life. The Mayor also said it would tend- to destroy an important means of living for many men. He incidentally mentioned that the Dubbo Freezing Works paid ,£100 a week in connection with rabbits, to say nothing of railway charges. He also alluded to the fact that in spite of 40 per cent, of the grass being eaten clown by rabbits last season, the greatest clip known for many years had been cut.
PLOUGHING UNDER RAPE AT THE BATHURST FARM. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 23 May 1906
PLOUGHING UNDER RAPE AT THE BATHURST FARM. In the profitable retention of the fer tility of the soil at the Bathurst Farm, rape plays an important part. For the sheep carried on the farm an area of rape is sown in February upon the basis of ten sheep to the acre. By the end of April it is ready for the sheep, which are grazed upon it throughout the winter and early spring. During October, when other feed is. available, the crop is let run up to flower, and is ploughed under earlv in November, before the seeds suffi ciently mature to germinate. A crop of green stuff 4 to 5 feet high is thus ploughed under, which becomes avail able as plant food for the following wheat crop. The physical condition of the soil is improved and its water-holding capa city is increased. Excellent results fol low such methods, from 30 to 40 bushels of wheat being obtained per acre.- The standing crop is ploughed under with' the aid of chains. One end of a chain is at tached to the right beam of the plough ...
COMPARISONS IN WHEAT PRODUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 23 May 1906
COMPARISONS IN WHEAT PRO DUCTION. A correspondent writes : — With a popu lation of about 4,000,000 people, Austra lia produced 54-535j5S2 bushels of wheat last year. This is' equal to 13$- bushels per head of population. America, on the other hand, produced only io£ bushels per head, although her population ex .ceeds Australia's by 96,000,000. In 1857 America had a population of 10,000,000, 70 per cent, of which living in the coun try and 30 per cent, living in the large cities. At that time her wheat produc tion averaged 5 bushels per head of population. Now with only 33 per cent, of her people on the land and the re mainder populating large cities, she has more than doubled her 1857 average. The reason for this large in crease in her wheat production is that her manufacturing industries have grown and the farmer has been supplied with tillage and harvesting instruments which considerably decrease his annual expen diture, thus enabling him to extend his operations. Australian farme...
OPPOSITION IN THE COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 23 May 1906
OPPOSITION IN THE COUNTRY. At Mandurama, near Carcoar, the fol lowing res'olutions were passed at a large meeting of ? farmers, land-owners, and business men : — 'That this meeting views with alarm the proposal of the State Government to introduce disease microbes to Australian shores, and pledges itself to use every legitimate means in its power to prevent such introduction.' 'That the sanction of the State Govern ment iu nit- prupusai 01 ur, uanysz s ex periment is inimical to the interest of 'he Commonwealth, a menace to the property and lives of the Australian public, and an insult to the intelligence of the commun ity, and this meeting now pledges itself not to vote for any candidate at the next election (State or Federal) who is in favor of it.' A committee was formed to give effect to the proceedings, and to prepare a peti tion for signature throughout the dis trict, the same to be presented to the State Premier by a strong deputation.

APPOINTMENT OF BACTERIOLO GISTS. A deputation from the Council of Ad vice, Rabbit Destruction Fund Commit tee, waited upon the Minister for Lands on Thursday. Mr. Alison, the chairman, explained to the Minister that the object of the deputation was to ask the Govern ment to take into consideration the ad visableness of making at an early date the promised appointment of a bacterio logist in connection witn the experiments about to be conducted by Dr. Danysz. He further explained that in view of the early arrival of Dr. Danysz the commit tee had thought it desirable' that they should lose no time in waiting upon ihe Minister to emphasise the need of imme diate action being taken in the matter. The Minister replied that the Govern ment recognised the vital importance of making such an appointment, and defi nite action would be at once taken. There would, in all probability, be three or four bacteriologists appointed to watch the ex periments. The rabbits have multiplied very large ' l...
