Contributed Articles on Topical Subjects. A STATE LAND BANK. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 February 1906

Contributed Articles on Topical Subjects. A STATE LAND BANK. (Continued.) (W. A. Ewers.) It is impossible to conceive a. more startling: instance of hypocrisy and mis representation of facts. The Government was in effect challenged to provide in the Bill for the issue of credit fonder bonds, in order to allow the public to express its opinion of 'the wild , scheme.' The challenge was accepted, and the press changed its grounds. Interested oppon ents of the Bill were well aware that the general taxpayer had no qualms on the matter — the recently published facts re garding the 10th issue of Victorian credit foncier bonds leave no .doubt on that point. ,£226,500 was tendered in reply to the request for ,£100,000, representing 125 tenderers', of whom only 28 were successful. This is surely a suffi cient answer, even for a Syd ney-paper, as to the general pub lic estimation of the 'risk' of lending money to the landholders, and we may possibly hear no more of this aspect of the question....

OUR STATE SHYLOCK. Exorbitant Rentals— The H Per cent- Basis. I. (By W. A. Ewers.) At the present time no political func tion is considered complete unless the gathering is treated to a discourse on the problem of settling the people on the land, and so much and so often is the necessity for settlement emphasised that the casual visitor to the State might be pardoned £ ? 1 ? nw:H^Mft. fUnf fiiic tpqIIv ?* imnortant ^(jJL , 1111 cl 5 1UIII5 iiiat L***tj »w«--^ ? j. ? question was absorbing the whole atten tion and energies of our leading politi cians. But to the man who is familiar with existing ? conditions brought about by the short-sighted policy of our lands administration, these public expressions of concern for the. 'development of our landed estates excite only derision and contempt. The country reader can only marvel at' the cool effrontery and crass hypocrisy .of public men who have it. in their power to ameliorate the conditions affecting existing settlement, but instead of...

Our Veterinary Column. Minor Operations on the Farm. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 February 1906

Our Veterinary Column. By B. B. Loel, M.M.C.V.S. Minor Operations on the Farm. Strangles, a disease by means of which so many of our youngsters and also many of our old stock are lost, is as a rule easily curable if taken in time. The symptoms are known to almost every horse-owner; they are — running: from the nose (one of the first noticed), rise in temperature, swelling- of the glands which lie between the angles of the jaw, animal dull, off his feed, and feverish. The dis charge from the nose in at first watery, but becomes thick after a few days. The membrane of the nose is red and covered with blood spots. In mild cases the at tack is cut short, and swelling of the glands is not prominent. The abscess in severe cases comes to' a head as a rule in about ten days. There is generally a cough, with more or less difficulty in breathing, on account of the swelling. The abscesses in all cases of strangles are connected with glands. The above description is that of simple or un complic...

SUNNYSIDE. Annual Picnic. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 February 1906

SUNNYSIDE. Annual Picnic. The annual picnic in connection with the Sunnyside branch took place on An niversary Day, and was one of the most successful social gatherings yet held un der the auspices of the association. About 700 visitors participated in the celebration, including 200 from Tenter field. The weather was terribly warm, and a terrific thunderstorm passed over during the afternoon, a large tree being struck by lightning near the picnic grounds. . , A feature of the proceedings was the visit of Messrs. John Perry, M.L.A. for Liverpool Plains, and President of the Farmers' and Settlers' Association, and J. Wetherspoon, of Glencoe, Vicepresi dent. The President of the Sunnyside Branch, Mr. J. Chick, took an active part in the welcome, assisted by Mr. J. H. Reid, President of the Tenterfield I.P.A. and H. Society, and his worship the Mayor of Tenterfield (Mr. E. H. Jur gens).

Dogs for the Country. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 February 1906

Dogs for the Country. Dwellers in the country have but little use for that which is merely ornamental. 'Handsome is as handsome does,' is an old saying which in the main fairly de scribes the practical bent of their minds. It matters not one- jot to the drover whe ther his dog is a thing of beauty or the reverse. No doubt, if an animal be good looking it is regarded as something in his favour, but as long as a dog performs his work satisfactorily, whether it be yarding sheep, heeling cattle, or in the realm of sport, looks are always subju gated to usefulness. And it cannot be denied that such an attitude is perfectly correct. * # * No one who depends on the help of the dog, either in his work or when engaged in sport, can afford to be influenced by any other consideration. This attitude of country dog owners has a striking paral lel in that of the metropolitan greyhound breeders. Perhaps never in the history of coursing in Australia has such keen and widespread interest been taken ...

Poultry for Profit. Dorking—Orpington-Indian Game. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 February 1906

Poultry fop Profit. Dorking— Orpington— Indian Came. A breed which as a table fowl has much to recommend it is the Dorking-. To gether with the Houdan it possesses five toes on each foot.. Some authorities con sider that the latter breed has been de rived from the Dorking. Certainly, the English bird is known to be of consider able antiquity, and the presence of a fifth or rudimentary toe in each breed would seem to indicate a relationship. The Houdan, too, is an excellent table fowl ; but it is of the Dorking- that we are treat ing. * * * As in the case with many breeds which have several varieties in Great Britain, by no means all of them are known in Australia. The silver grey and the col ored are perhaps the only varieties of the Dorking- which have reached us ; certain ly, they are the best known. Both are ideal fowls for the table. Fine-boned, short in the leg-, and massive-framed, their meat is of excellent quality, while the fine white skin and white legs and feet gain them ...

POINTS ABOUT POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 February 1906

POINTS ABOUT POULTRY. (By Poultryman.) Most farmers keep poultry, and in con nection with the keeping of. poultry there is unlimited scope for writing. The Edi tor' says, 'Be practical,' and, judging from' the large number of letters I receive on ;the subject, the present requirements of ; the Sydney markets is a practical and perplexing question. ? At no time is it advisable to forward half grown or out-of-condition sorts. Just now, avoid sending anything other than prime as you would avoid his Satanic Majesty. Keep such at home, and next week I may tell you what to do with them. .#-.#?# Good turkeys are scarce/ and should readily command good money. Although outside the order of leave, might I say a word on the question of agents. If senders are fully satisfied with present agents, it would be folly to make a change. No better advice could be given to those seeking new agents than to consign to the Poultry Farmers' Co-operative Society, Limited— co-opera- tors like the farmers to ...

McKay:— October 25th, 1905. By the time this letter reaches you harvest will be in full swing, and I trust will be a good one. . ? We 'are still building machines here — have about 70 built since we arrived and expect to fin ish this week;, after which we go up to Pringle's to build a hundred there. We expect a recdrd harvest here this year — have almost sold out now. ' This is really a wonderful country; will grow anything. If they go in for dairying on a proper scale, Australia will have no chance in the home market. And the same applies to wheat; for there is no land to clear, fencing is of no import ance ; we are three weeks nearer the mar ket, and there is any amount of land. Two New Zealanders came over with us « to have a look round, and have gone home to sell out and take up land here; ...
