Thi6: map, which is drawn to scale, should furnish about as convincing an argument as any countryman could desire, why he should vote "No" to the Referendum proposals to be decided on April 26th next. Australia, with 4,500,000 people, is seen to be larger than Europe without Russia and Great Britain together-the home of most of the great nations of the earth. Australia is too big to govern from one centre as the Unificationists desire, and as will happen if the Referenda proposals are carried. So Vote "NO."
Cultivation Potatoes at Redfern. IRISH BLIGHT OR "WET ROT"? SHOCKING NEGLECT. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
I: .jj =£)IP &lt;£ Cultivation Nj Potatoes at Redfern. IRISH BLIGHT OR "WET ROT"? SHOCKING NEGLECT. " Early on Friday morning, a number of farmers who are in town for the Easter holidays., visited the produce yards at the Central Railway Station, to attend the daily auction sales. A few yards from the entrance gates ^they saw several heaps of diseased po tatoes, piled up against the walls of the carriage shed. They had to walk-on a mass of rotten tubers to gain the platform at which the sales are conducted. Between the plat form and the trucks, right along the entire length of the siding., was such a quantity of diseased potatoes, that had they been gathered up, 110 diffi culty would have been experienced in filling a six-ton truck. But that was not all. The platform stands about two feet from the ground, and the whole .of that space was given over to potatoes, which at some time or other had been thrown out of the bags. The men from the country were dis- . gusted, and they ...

Irrigation. THE SPRAY SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
Irrigation. THE SPRAY SYSTEM. ? It is not our intention in this ar ticle to argue as to the wisdom or otherwise of irrigating. So far as Australia is concerned; the matter has been settled. The only question open to argument is the method "to adopt. The .-whole secret of. irriga tion is the securing of water and the proper distribution. . The fact that the Australian States have carried' so sparse a population has been the cause of very little of irrigation. Australia lies within the zone of the south-east a^cl west erly trade winds, hence it is that the greatest rainfall is confined to the Pacific slopes. These slopes are to day carrying nearly two-thirds of the population of the continent. As settlement increases, however, the in terior of Australia must be worked, and to cultivate it successfully an Nunan Spraying Plant at Work, W. Jones, Orchard, Lower Portland, Cole River. being known of the great possibilities abundant, supply of water must be secured. Artesian Resources. Tlie...

Erosion of River Bank. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
Erosion of River Bank. The Council of Tamworth are much concerned with respect to the inroads the river is making in the banks. It is rapidly cutting away the embankment near the bridge, ana also into Lower Street, which runs alongside the river on the level part of the town. It is considered that in a short time portion of the street will be quite cut away if prompt steps are not taken to prevent it. The council lias decided to urge on the Government the necessity for protecting the town and main bridge over the river, by erecting a suitable retaining wall on the northern side of the river.
Depasturing Cattle on Roads. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
Depasturing Cattle on Roads. Terania Shire Council received a letter from a ratepayer, stating that he had been refused permission to register to depasture 18 head of cat tle on the roads, on the ground that he was not an elector of Terania. He gave notice that for the past nine months he had been a lessee of land: ?within the shire, and, he therefore claimed to have his name placed on the roll, and for permission to depas ture cattle on the roads and public places in the shire. He forwarded ap plication and the necessary fees. It was decided to inform the writer that the council advertised when the roll was prepared, and if the writer's name was omitted it was his own fault. He would have to remain off the roll, and that he was liable to prosecution if his. stock strayed on the road. It seems unfortunate that this pri vilege should be denied to the rate payer simply because his name is not on' the roll. In all other respects, apparently, he is prepared to comply with the conditions...

Personal ^ .President Patten, who lias .been addressing meetings in the Hunter, Gloucester, and Dungog districts dur ing the past week, having to return to Sydney for Easter, finds he will not be able . to get to tlie* Manning as arranged. However, some other member of the. Executive-possibly, one of the vice-presidents-will visit the districts '"between the Manning and tlie Slacleav, as soon after the holidays as fixtures can be decided on. As a result of Mr. Patten's coastal tour, a good branch has been formed : at Gloucester, and at .a number of other centres.

Notes of the Week. The Tick Menace. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
Notes of the Week. The Tick Menace.' The information to hand this week: that ticks have been found upon able distance out cattle a consider side the area pre viously quaran tined, is disquiet ~ ing. This occur rence follows a considerable iJeriod of quiescence since the pest made its appearance at Kyogle. ' There is, nevertheless, ground for suspicion that the two may be related. On the other hand, the outbreaks may be quiet independent. In the new centre of infection, out of a herd of some 200 head, about one-third have been found badly tick-infested. The centre of infection seems curiously isolated, for, so far as is known, none of the neighbouring farms show any sign of the tick, although to obtain such a hold upon this particular herd it must have been in evidence , for a, considerable time. The local farm ing community is, naturally, agitated by the fear that the infected area, may extend beyond the doomed Lis more farm, and that a general out break may ,talce place..i. The eff...

Free Ferries. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
Free Ferries. With the proposition to establish free ferries between Syd , ne}r and-v North. Sydney, the Socialistic idance may be said to have begun in earnest. It is one of the most superfluous instances of State: Socialism on record. The company at pre sent catering for this traffic.does, very well .indeed. It handles an enormous tally of passengers throughout the year expedi tiously, cheaply, and with a wonderful record of ;safety to life '.and limb. Granted that the transference of the.public across the Harbour might more fitly be in public than private hands, vet we -have to face things as they are,. The present company has been granted certain privileges, and it has lived up to every one of them'. . It ?would be willing, no doubt, to increase its facilities at the demand of the Government, but it is to be denied, this chance. The whole schernc bears the complexion of an; attack on . the company on the principle that every raid on "a monopoly" will be jpopular. One argument of...

THE LAND. " Nations may battle and the world rock with revolution but the land will care for him who cares for it." Telephone 1521 City. Telegrams;" MTiie Land," Sydney Offices 3 Spring Street, Sydney/ .: THURSDAY. APRIL 13. 1911. The Show. This year the Royal Agricultural Show promises to reach "the roof and crown of things" by eclipsing.all records. The growth of this carnival is impressive. Of its kind it is the greatest on earth, for, although special sections may be eclipsed' by displays .elsewhere, yet as a general revelation1 of a people's activities in production and industry the Sydney Show is easily supreme. Much credit is due to those who manage the show, but their efforts, however able and well directed, would be in effective were it not that an abounding prosperity is behind those efforts. Ever since the return of better seasons in 1903, the show has been growing in sympathy with the advancing tide of prosperity. It is at once a creation of that prosperity and f .summar...
EXPORT OF VICTORIAN PEARS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
EXPORT OF VICTORIAN PEARS. ?Victoria has had a very prolific sea son for pears, and statements liavu been ..printed that the .prices have, been so --poor''that the fruit has been al lowed to waste on the . ground in a, number of cases. This iftust not be allowed, as there are plenty of mar kets outside Australia which .would? .pay "good..prices for this fruit. Recent cabjcs from London fully bear out this' fact, for, an experiment ship ment sent* ito JLond'ou from Victor^ realised very remunerative prices. The shipment Avas collected, by the Victorian Fruit' Growers' Association. The fruit was cooled, and then stored in a chamber, the temperature of which was regulated on . the usual lines adopted by fruit-carrying steam ers. The :fact that apples and pears can be carried in the samfe chamber means that advantages, both as ro gards expense and convenience, w.iU be: gained. - rThevmost. important re sult of the success of the Somerset shipment is that growers will be able to extend t...
Dalgety & Co., Ltd. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
A more interesting and instructive exhibit would be hard to find at the Royal Easter Show this year than that at Dalgety's machinery stand in the main avenue. It is patent to even the most casual visitor that the company are "out for business." Quality seems to be the leading feat ure of the display as a whole, and small .wonder, when such reliable agencies as Tangye's, Ltd., Clayton & Shuttleworth, Ltd., and Wolseley Sheep-shearing Machine Co., Ltd., are represented. Enormous interest was evinced by the huge crowd of visitors, and the com pany's officials- were kept busy at tending to inquiries unci booking or ders. . The "Tangye" Oil Engine section ?was particularly well patronised, as the operations of driving pump, circu lar-saw, ehafl'cutter, etc., specially ap pealed to country visitors, and com plinientary remarks were on all sides' passed ronceriiing the splendid work ing ipiiilities of this highly popular engine.
