THE FARM AND GARDEN. WORK FOR THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 21 February 1896

THE FARM AND GARDEN. WORK FOR THE WEEK. Thb Kitchen Gabden.— Spinach for sum mer use requires very generous treatment to obtain anything like perfection. Spinach, like oil aoft vegetables, requires to be grown quickly, and without check to bring it to perfection. Vegetable marrows 'should be cut as soon as - they attain a fair 6fz3. Oae of the greatest mistakes is to allow them to become old and form seeds. The fruit going to seed seems to absorb the energy of the whole plant, thereby diminishing the crop. The Fkuit Gabden and Obchakd.— In many cases birds are proving very troublesome to the fruit grower. The grapes, tor example, have the centres of berries picked just as they are beginning to color. Netting the trees is the best preventive, but if this is too expensive Btretohing cotton amongst the branches proves a good substitute. The birds come in contact with the stretched threads, and becoma scared. Gooseberry busheB that have made plenty of growth, and are not managed on tho ...

JUDGING WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 21 February 1896

JUDGING WHEAT. The season is now on when men have to give their best attention to the sale and pur chase of grain of all sorts (writes Professor W. Brown in the Witkly Times). The farmi r especially has to be expert in knowing what goes to make a good eamplo for reproduction and though most of them acquire the necessaiy skill through long practical observation, a good many are not acquainted with the reasons for certain characteristics in plant life, and thus unable to take advantage of everything fo? their future benefit. Let us go over moat of the facts that regulate both the science and the practice of jadging wheat— what to choose and what to avoid. All bald varieties are usually the most pro lific, least hardy, and of the best quality, so that on the other hand the bearded kinds are hardier and coarser, if not always the poores, in yield. Straw with much pith inside in. Variably indicates a flinty and poor quality of grain, and onch wheats are usually dark in oolor and mostly f...

FLOTSAM AND JETSAM. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 21 February 1896

FLOTSAM AMD JETSAM. (By H.N.T.) ?? Speak naught but kindly.' We i are told by that purveyor of abstract theories, the freetrader, that our imports have to be paid for by our exports, therefore we most increase exports to enable us to pay our import account ; that, in fact, no hard cash leaves the colony to pay for what we import ; we, in a word, pay for our imports by exporting our raw material. Very well. And this i3 how our raw material goes to pay for, and be made up by, the cheap labor of other countries. The figures fol lowing are only approximate, but will give a good idea of how we are filched to keep others in work and make the ' Fatman ' fatter. For instance, silver we export at about 2s. 6d. per oz. to be made into coin at 6s. per cz. ; gold we send away at £i per oz, to ba manufactured into watches, brooches, trinkets, &c, and re turned to us at £10 to £15 per oz. ; hides ex ported at IJd. per lb., to ba returned to us in leather at from 8d. to Is. per lb., or mad...

THE NEW TAXATION. THE REGULATIONS AND THE SCHEDULES. WHAT THE TAXPAYERS WILL HAVE TO DO. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 21 February 1896

THE NEW TAXATION THE BEGULATIONS AND THE SCHEDULES. WHAT THE TAXPAYERS WILL. HAVE TO DO. At a special meeting of the Executive Council last week the regulations and schedules under the Land and Income Tax Assessment Act were formally approved. Later they were published in the Government Gazette. It is provided that these regulations and schedules muat be pub lished twice in the Gazette before the schedules can be issued to the public. It will, therefore. be a week, or probably two, before the taxpayers of New South Wales will be called upon to fill up these formidable documents. On and after a date, which will be duly advertised, the ' forms ' or schedules will be obtainable by the public at any of the public office s, including the police station, the post offices, the railway stations, the cuatoms-houses, the clerks of petty sessions ; in fact, they will be obtainable all over the country.

INTERCOLONIAL ITEMS. CONFERENCE OF PREMIERS. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 21 February 1896

INTERCOLONIAL ITEMS. CONFERENCE OF PBEMIERS. The Premier, Mr. G. H. Reid, states that the Government of New South 'Wales, Victoria, Queensland, South Aus tralia, and Tasmania have agreed to a conference of Premiers to be held in Sydney about Tuesday, 3rd March. Instead of being, as originally proposed by the Premier of South Australia, a conference on tbe Japanese treaty, the conference, Mr. Reid eays, will be a general one, and will includa the questions of ' undesirable immigration,' federal quarantine, the arrangements recom mended to the various governments by the Maritime Conference at Hobart in 189i in reference to oceaa lights, and federal military defence as elaborated by the recent Military Conference. These mat ters are all considered to be pressing for settlement at the present time, and will form the main subjects for. discussion. The Premier of Western Australia has been invited to the conference, but his reply has not yet been received. It will be remembered that a con...

THE PREMIER'S CONSISTENCY. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 21 February 1896

THE PREMIER'S CONSISTENCY. ,v.The Burrangong Chronicle says: — Mr. ,..'Heid really ought to be catful or his reputation aa an ideal freetrader will be rudely shattered. In this fiscal ridden country where almost every inhabitant is an enthusiast for spotless freetrade or immaculate protection, the Premier of the period must be cautioue. But Mr. Reid is not so cautious as he might be. For in stance, he recently directed that only the ,New South Wales artizan should receive cmplojment on Government works and that the intercolonial comer should be denied a job even at the minimum wage per day. This was, of course, in contra vention of the precepts of freetrade. Now we have Mr. Reid intimating his inten tion of assisting private enterpriso to establish the great iron industry by guaranteeing that the Government would purchase the iron at an advance on ruling rates. The Government, of course, represent the whole ot the people of this country, so everybody has to participate in the respon...

" HEADING 'EM SCHOOL." [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 21 February 1896

' HEADING 'EM SCHOOL.' On Saturday afternoon no little excite ment was caused in Beardy-street, Armi dale, by a procession consisting of a strong posse of police and several indi viduals handcuffed together (reports the local paper). It appears that for several days past a fraternity known aa the ' heading 'em school' have been indulg ing in their iittle game in the outofthe way nooks and corners of the city, and rumor hath it that the winnings of one of the lucky ones was considerably over 4100. The police, though aware of the existence of the school, had some diffi culty in gaining admission to the Belect circle, and their presence on the scene invariably led to a dissembling, which, to gay the least of it, was very tantalising to the officers of the peace. However, on Saturday, one of the force, who waa a stranger to the city, and who discarded his official attire for a quiet and unassum ing civilian garb, joined the school as a spectator at the rear of Tattersall's Hotel, in Bea...

MR. COGHLAN'S STATISTICS. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 21 February 1896

MR. COGHLAN'S STATISTICS. Mr. Coghlan's statistics contain some interesting information. Under the head ing ' Local Government ' we are told that the estimated value of land, houses, and other permanent improvements in the colony stood approximately at the end of 1894 at £292,196,100, as against £324,882,000 for the year 1892 ; of this £136.202,100 was the valus in incorpor ated districts, as against the estimate of £150,938,000 in 1892. The shrinkage is one of the evidences, no doubt, of the depression. Tet tbe number of dwellings has increased 'by about 3000 houses in the suburbs of Sydney, by about 2000 in other municipalities, and about 5000 in the unincorporated districts. It is also worthy of notice that the capital value of ratable property in the city of Sydney has shrunk by about eight millions ster ling between 1892 and 1894, while the rates have fallen from £166,635 to £141,677. In the suburbs the capital value has shrunk by about five millions, and the rate by about £15,...

THE BLESSINGS OF FREETRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 21 February 1896

THE BLESSINGS OF FREETRAOE. ^ The Forbes Times says : — The protec tionists are anxiously awaiting the time of their ascendancy, and when that day comes all men wi 1 be able to judge of Mr. Lyne as a leader of men and of a Government, and not as an Opposition leader solely. That such a time will soon come we have no verv serious doubts ; in fact the undoubted signs of the times are that New South Wales will not enjoy the blessings of unrestricted trade for any considerable period. One of such signs ia the evident fact of the importers laying in such exceedingly heavy stocks as they are doing at present. Of course free traders will tell us that is accounted for by the fact that stocks were allowed to run out awaiting the day when our ports would be thrown open to the world at large. Those who have to do with these things, however, Bpeak differently and tell us that the importer is stocking heavily in order that he might the more heavily gain, expecting, as he does, a revulsion of the...
