SCIENTIFIC FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 6 June 1906
SCIENTIFIC FARMING. A groat many farmers somehow have taken- on a great prejudice against the use. of science and scientific methods in farming. They Have strange ideas as to what science is, and naturally enough their conclusions are strange. All there is in scientific farming is to farm according to the best methods known, and be exact about it, not loose and slipshod. It is not necessarily a new way or an old way, but it is the best according to all the light we can ? get. A thorough farmer,' even though ho may know nine ai)our. oooks, is more scieniinc than a , loose, careless farmer, who knows all the books can teach. To do things right in the light of tho best knowledge we can get is the 'science of it always. But a man is sadly to blame if he will not,- try to learn the right way, for if he does not know, how can he practice? All there is in science is to. know all we can, and en ergetically carry out our knowledge

F THE LANDS COMMISSION. JUDGE OWEN'S REPORT THE PAYMENTS TO CLOSE. ALLEGED PARTICIPATION BY CRICK. BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS RECOMMENDED. The report by Mr. Justice Owen, who was appointed a Royal Commis sioner to inquire .into matters sugges tive of malpractice and Ministerial cor ruption in the Lands Department, was made available on Thursday night. The document is very bulky, and deals exhaustively with all the matters brought before the Commission from its opening.

THE AMERICAN WHEAT CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 6 June 1906
THE AMERICAN WHEAT CROPS. The winter wheat outlook in the United States and Canada was on April 2G all that could be desired, ac cording to the Cincinnati 'Price Cur rent.' Other more detailed reports, by cable, stated, however, that there were complaints in Missouri, and some deterioration in the Kansas outlook ; but, on the whole, the prospects were described as favorable. How much of the winter wheat area had this month been abandoned would be known, and then some approximate idea of the probable crop would be possible. In the North-west, spring seeding was de scribed as being well advanced, the weather continuing favorable, and the season being comparatively early. The same was the case in Manitoba, where an increase of 500,600 acres in the area sown was considered probable. The American and Canadian visible supply decreased rather sharply for the week ended April 21, but the total was still larger than last year, viz., 59,621,000 bushels, against 42,316,000 bushels.

We have been requested to give an article on Anthrax in Sheep, and cheerfully comply with the request. # # * Definition. — A specific disease, due to a micro-organism (Bacillus Anth rasis'), which runs a rapid and gene rally fatal course, and is characterised by an imperfectly oxidised condition of the blood, which becomes thick, dark colored, and more or less incapable of supporting life. * M ik Distribution.— This disease is wide ly distributed over the world. It is not confined to sheep, but also attacks horses, cattle, pigs, and almost all the larger animals. It can be readily com municated to man, and then takes the form of 'malignant pustule' (wool sorters' disease). Hence, the atten dants' on animals suffering from this disease, and persons who make post mortem examinations of nnthrax stricken animals, should be most care ful in guarding against the possibility of their becoming inoculate...
QUEENSLAND AS A WHEAT PRODUCER. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 6 June 1906
QUEENSLAND AS A WHEAT PRODUCER. The Government Statistician of Queensland, in pointing out in a re cent report that the very low wheat returns received last season from the drought-visited areas of the west oper ated so severely against the average of the whole crop, remarks that in this connection it is well to note what is being done elsewhere. Much attention is being devoted in the United States to the production of a droughtresist ing wheat, and very satisfactory ex periments have been conducted. This class of grain, known as the Macaroni u'linut u'ill tNi'ivn u'if-li n minimum nf moisture. The exception taken to them is that they arc a hard milling wheat, and, some say, not suited for a bread Hour, although the latter has been disputed with some authority. In any case, such success has attended the efforts made in Queensland to pro duce a rust-resisting variety of grain that encouragement might be taken to experiment in the direction of evolv ing a type of wheat that shall not ...

General Review of the Markets. ''Farmer and Settler' Office, .Monday, June 4, 0 p.m. GRAIN AND PRODUCE TRADE. WHEAT. Favorable weather conditions have prevailed, and complaints now for ploughing or seeding are few. More rain is wanted in some districts, but the crop situation has improved fully 50 per cent, since the recent downpour, and if we have another general rain within a month and a general absence of westerly winds, a big and early har vest is assured. The market seems to be gathering strength, and while no excitement prevails, .all interested in wheat undoubtedly exhibit a conser vative confidence that the situation will improve. conditions aoroaci are closely watched, and when it is re membered that quite a fleet of Aus tralian wheat boats arrived in English ports this week, and only caused a steadiness, with perhaps a fall of 3d. to 4d. per quarter, it is evident there are many friends of wheat in London and on the Continent fully alive to the true position.

'T very much regret to state that the membership for the year 1905 was only half the number of the preceding year, showing a lack of interest taken bv the farmers of Stonchenge. It is to be hoped they will roll up and sup port an organisation that is continual ly working in their interests.

THE CASE STRONGLY PUT. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 6 June 1906
THE CASE STRONGLY PUT. Mr. J. P. I Rogers, of 'East View, Quirindi, makes out a strong case for the Danysz experiment in the follow ing letter to the 'Herald' :— ' Sir, — In your issue of last Saturday 1 read Mr. W. A. Benn's hysterical ravings about Dr. Danysz's experi ments. It would pay Mr. Benn better to. try and purify the rabbit trade. I can bring evidence to prove before any responsibly appointed committee that hundreds of rabbits sent down to mar ket for sale have been poisoned by phosphorus. Phosphorus is pronounc ed a deadly poison the wide world over, while Dr. Danysz's methods are pro nounced harmless. No one except Mr. Benn, a syndicate, and a few rabbit trappers benefit by the rabbit indus try, while the State's progress and prosperity depend on her agricultural and pastoral industries. The rabbits themselves are a huge disease to these industries, and have taxed their vital organs, and sapped' their vigor. It is only the high price their vigor. It is only the high pri...
