A NOVEL PLOUGH. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
A NOVEL PLOUGH. The Australian eucalyptus trees are put to a strange use in the Argentine. In some parts the branches of the trees are used instead of harrows. These are tied to a long pole, and pulled along by teams of bullocks. As the soil is of a very friable na ture, a stirring of this sort seems to be sufficient.
AT THE EASTER CAMP. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
AT THE EASTER CAMP. Capt. John Smith (local storekeeper): "Now, then. Private Robinson, how is it you are off duty without permission. I'll have you put in the guard room! Private Robinson (a leading customer) : "Right, Brown, you blooming well do, and I don't deal off you any more, see!"
SCIENTIFIC AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
SCIENTIFIC AGRICULTURE. Professor Watt, who is in charge of the chair of Agriculture in the Uni versity, is authority for the state ment that in agriculture "the pro gress made during the last century is greater than that made during the previous eighteen centuries." This increase is almost entirely due to the advance of science, and its applica tion to agricultural problems. But, substantial as this progress lias been, much remains to be done; so much, indeed, that the creation of a Uni versity chair for the study of agri culture, has been deemed profitable here, and in many other countries. With us it is a late comer in the cita del of education; for only recently has it been realised that the problems which perplex the farmer in the field are best solved by the scientist in the laboratory. The latter-day farmer is by no moans averse to the aid pre ferred by the scientist, for experi ence has taught him the value of such assistance in raising better wheat, in fighting disease, imp...

FLOUR. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
FLOUR. Very little life has. been shown in the demand for flour during the week, bakers being practically off the mar ket haying previously booked up their requirements for some time to come. However, the Easter rush will: doubtless make large inroads into their stocks, as the consumption of bread, at least, in the city, will be very greatly increased, and some of the bakers may afterwards require fresh supplies. A good deal of flour continues to go away to the islands and tlie.-East,;.but-export-prices are said to be on the low side. Current quotations are as follows: Last Week. This Week. Sydney ... , £8/5/ £8/5/ Melbourne .. £8 £8 Adelaide £8 to £8/5/ £8 to £8/5/ These are prices for leading brands in bakers' lots.
3.—Permissive Occupier, Liability of. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
3.-Permissive Occupier, Liability of. (Case).-ljue council assessed 3000 acres of land, comprising the Walla Walla estate homestead blocks, which was the unsold land of the closer settlement subdivision by the Crown of that estate. When the rate papers were issued, A.B. had a premissive occupancy of the property, but the valuers issued the rate notices to the Crown. The. land was sold by the Crown on the 5th July, 1909, to C.D., and he states that he will pay from date of pur chase. The Crown now state that they are not liable for the rates, as the lands were either unoccupied or leased at the 1st of January, 1909. (Q-)--Who then must the council look to to pay the rates covering the period from 1st January last up to 5th July, 1909? (A.).-1. The shire council have treated the Crown as owners, and rate accordingly-and now adopt the Crown's contention that they should not have been rated. 2. The occupier, A.B., appears to be the person who should have been rated, but as he was not, h...
WHEAT. Further Srump in Values. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
WHEAT. Further Sxump in Values. The position of the local wheat market lias gone from bail to worse during the week, and at the present time it may he quite truthfully stated that there is nothing doing. In view of the fact that London and Continental buyers have been keep ing rigidly out of the field of opera tions, save for just purchasing ordi nary requirements, and that India and Argentina have been pressing sales, values on that side have eased considerably. Consequently, shippers have had to reduce their limits, and they are only offering at the present time 3/1% for small lots, with %d to Id per bushel more to parcels. How ever, holders have refused to enter tain these prices and, it is a mat ter for conjecture whether, at the present time, a deccnt parcel could be picked up at even 3/4, free on board. In the course of conversa tion, a wheat broker admitted quite candidly that he had a buyer at about that figure, if he could pick up, say, four or five thousand bags, but he ha...

(Q.).-Council desires to know ^whether there is * any 'foundation in the charge that it lias done an il legal act in charging rates for oyster leases prior to the passing of the L.G. Amending Act, 1908? (A.)-1. Oyster"leases were ratable before the Amending Act, if the same were situate within the boundaries of the shire. 2. The council have not acted il legally, and I advise that no refund be made.

FAT STOCK. STRONG MARKET AND GOOD PRICES. SHEEP AND LAMBS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
FAT STOCK. STRONG MARKET AND GOOD PRICES. SHEEP AND LAMBS. The yardings at Flemington on Thursday totalled 43,067 sheep and lambs, out of 44,916 entered. There were no less than 188 owners repre sented, including country agents act ing on behalf of a number of small graziers. The bulk of the offerings consisted of merino wethers and ewes, the last being largely represented, but there was also a good selection of crossbreds. About 400 rams, mostly merinos, were included. The quality of the sheep was on a par of that of last Thursday, with the exception of a few pens of very prime cross breds. Although' wethers wei*e in the majority, those offered were in the main, either two and four-tootli, or over four years old, comparatively few six-tooths being present. The ewes were, on the average, primer muttons than the wethers; but these included a number of old ones, only saleable for their skins. About 15 per cent, of the total offerings were stores. Owing to the dilatoriness of the Railw...
JUTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
JUTE. There has been an extremely quiet market for jute goods during the pe riod since we last reported, and the tendency of prices has generally been towards lower rates. Cornsacks, though nominally quoted at 5/3 in the daily press, could have been pick ed up at Id less, and branbags, though steadier than cornsacks, have been placed at under 3/10, there being ready sellers at 3/9%. Woolpacks have proved a disappointment to holders, who, some little time back predicted much higher markets, but this lias not come about, and it is difficult at the pVesent time to find buyers for spot packs at over 2/3 to 2/3y3) with an extra Id quoted for season's shipments. The fact of the matter is that Calcutta prices for manufactured jute goods have re cently shown unmistakable signs of easing, though e.i.f. values are still considerably above local levels.
P. P. Boards. PASTURES BOARDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
P. P. Boards. PASTURES BOARDS. The Wagga Pastures Protection Board lias long been dissatisfied with 'the present methods of rabbit poiaon in«\ cliieily because the work has to he suspended in the summer months owing to the risk of causing bush fires'. 'Recently it was agreed to make an effort to establish a fund with the object of offering a substantial reward for the production of the most suitable non-inllammable rabbit poi son. The other boards of the State ?were circularised, asking for co-ope ration in the matter, but tlie_ replies, received so far do not indicate that the proposal meets with any repie sentative support. Of eleven boaids communicated with seven are opposed, to co-operation, one reported that it had no funds for the purpose, and an other replied that the matter was re ceiving consideration.' Only, one board ,that of Urana, sent a favour able reply. Goulburn P.P. Board at its last meeting appointed Mr. A. Mcintosh, of Binda, rabbit inspector. The board declined t...
CIRCUMVENTING A HOG. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
CIRCUMVENTING A HOG. A writer in an exchange talks on this subject, which reminds us ("Hoard's Dairyman") of an incident in the life of the late Theodore Louis of Wisconsin, who was one of the most profound students of swine life we ever met. What this old German, farmer did not know about a hog was hardly worth searching for else where. Several years ago we were asked to induce him to attend a meeting of the Massachusetts State. Agricultural Society at Boston. He spoke in his simple, direct way to a crowded house composed of some of the best farmers of 3STew England, and they kept him on the platform answering questions for an hour or more after his address was finished. One gentleman arose in the audi ence and said: "Mr. Louis, it is very evident that you know a great deal about hogs. But there is one question I don't be lieve you can answer. Suppose you were driving a lot of hogs along the road and you came to a bridge which they refused to cross. How would you manage?" The old m...

Easter Fishing. TROUT, PERCH, AND COD. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
Easter Fishing. TROUT, PERCH, AND COD. The Easter season is just the thing the doctor ordered for anglers, and this Easter is better in prospect than many of its predecessors. The boun tiful rains have kept the mountain streams well up above summer level, and if the thunderstorms that spoil ed the sport for so many days in the high country hold off there is little reason to fear empty creels. Trout lisliing has assumed some im portance in this State, and in the near future will be regarded by land owners fortunate enough to have -well-stocked trout streams running through their territory, as something that spells hard cash to them. ^ It is quite safe to say that anglers in the United Kingdom pay far too heavily for fishing rights over various streams; but they are forced to do it, or go without fishing at all. For. five-mile stretches on streams like the .Snowy, Goodradigbee, Upper Mur rumbidgee, Tuross, Big Badja, Mac donald, Duckmaloi, Beardv, and a hundred or so more, men will be...

THE PROPER POLICY. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
THE PROPER POLICY. The farmers of this State are not the only men on the land that are determined to hand themselves to gether politically to defend them selves. In Canada there has been an awakening, and there is no mistake about the attitude assumed. The producers declare that they have been the sport of all classes for years, but are determined that there shall be an end to this state of affairs. Their tmion now embraces practically all the primary producers in the Domi nion. A few weeks ago a deputa tion, consisting of 800 farmers' rep resentatives, besieged the office of the Premier of Canada, and told Sir Wil frid Laurier exactly what they de manded, and what was their intention to obtain. The occasion was regarded of such importance that the House did not sit that afternoon. A great scheme of organisation is now being carried out in every part of the coun try. The next election, they declare, will see the farmers of the Dominion fighting as one man.
VICTORIAN CHEESE EXPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
VICTORIAN CHEESE EXPORTS. The exportation of cheese is being taken up willingly in Victoria. Ap plications have been received (says "The Australasian") by the Depart ment of Agriculture for space for 117 tons of cheese to go with the third shipment from Victoria. The depart ment has been successful in securing additional space to accommodate a further 70 tons, or 130 tons in all. The cheese is coming practically from the Western and Gippsland dis tricts. Makers have followed the ad vice of the officers of the department, and are manufacturing cheese in a size weighing 80 lb. The previous shipments by the Cornwall and Morayshire have proved highly satis- .' factory to Victorian producers, and cheese should be an established article of export in future, years. ,
