P. P. Boards. The rabbit inspector having re ported to the Armidale P.P. Board, that a large number of landholders had disregarded notice to destroy briars and blackberries on their hold ings and adjoining roads, the board decided to' institute legal proceed ings forthwith. The inspector also reported that rabbits were oil the de crease in. the northern end of the district, the recent wet weather hav ing killed many ??.'.of the young ro dents. The sum of £50 was voted to assist to defray the expenses of the Carcoar board in the proposed test case against the Railway Com missioners, action being about to be taken to ' compel them to destroy rabbits which find harbour on rail way lines.

AN ALIEN'S LAND RIGHTS. Interesting Case at Dubbo. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
AN ALIEN'S LAND RIGHTS. Interesting Case at Dubbo. .... A novel case was decided at tlie Dubbo sittings of the Land Appeal Court last week. Charn Lee, a Chi nese resident of the State, not yet naturalised, appealed against the dis allowance of his application to con vert his homestead selection into a conditional purchase in the Dubbo land district. Tlie local board refused the application on the grounds that Charn Lee was an alien, that he had not taken out liis naturalisation papers, that he had not given notice of his intention to take them out, and that he had not asked to be al lowed to amend his application to allow him to do so. The application was made under section 3 of the Crown Lands Act of 1908, and the facts as disclosed dur ing the hearing were that the home stead selection had been taken up in 1897 by Angus Mackenzie, in whose name the homestead grant was execu ted in 1903. The land became sub ject to a mortgage, and was disposed of to the appellant by the Official As...
SALEYARDS QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
SALEYARDS QUESTION. Temora branch, having discussed the Homebush saleyards question, has resolved to call a conference of all the branches in the district, with a view to further dealing with the question to be submitted to the Par liamentary Standing Committee on Public Works, and considering the ad visableness of submitting evidence. There is a strong feeling in many parts of the country in favour of kill ing fat stock in country centres, and sending it to the Sydney market ready for the butcher. When Mr. Holman was over in New Zealand recently, he seems to have been favourably impressed with the experiment now being made there in carrying on the work of afforestation by means of selected prison labour. As present indications seem to pro mise a successful issue, the State At torney-General recently authorised Mr. MacFarlane, Comptroller of Pri sons, and Mr. Iiay, Director of For ests, to visit New Zealand, and in quire into the working of the system, with a view, it is presumed, t...
FOWLS ON THE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
FOWLS ON THE FARM. Occasionally one runs up against the man who warmly argues that poultry pays better than cows. He will take a crack hen or two, and put it against the ordinary cow. He wins. It is a sort of double-headed coin business. All the same, a practical farmer in New Zealand has given up the cows, and is going in for hens. It is likely that he'"will come out all right, because he likes the one, and has not the same faith in the other. The "round peg in the square hole" trouble 'acts the same in farming as in anything else. Some men are cut out for dairy farming, others for sheep, fruit, and so on. Toss them about and land them in the wrong paddocks, and they would most like ly all make a mess of it.- While the man who understands fowls, and has brains and energy, will make money; at the game, it would be only a maniac who would argue that the dairy farmers, as a whole, would do better with the feathered tribe. Still, it is certain that on most farms, especially the small, ...
A RIVAL WE ASSIST. Danger to Fine-Wool Growers. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
A RIVAL WE ASSIST. Danger to. Fine-Wool Growers. Long before the commencement of the Boer War, many of the large sheepmen of the Transvaal. Orange s River Colony, and the Cape had been -importing Australian stud sheep. The main body of the Boer farmers were, however, slow in following the ex ample. But about the end of 1898 ? some? Tasmahian slieep found then way to the centre of the Boer farms, and they evidently thought a lot of them, for the writer shortly after wards received letters from one or two asking what good Australian me rino rams could be landed at Dur-v ban for. Before any business resulted the war broke out, but the Boers had not forgotten, and as soon as pos sible: after the war, orders came to - Australia for both merino ranis and ewes> from the government and pri vate individuals. And there lias been a. steady stream going over there since, and the number is increasing yearly. Not content with drawing their supplies, from us, the govern ments of the three State...

PEAK HILL AND THE R.W.U. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
PEAK HILL AND THE R.W.U. Peak Hill branch mustered in strong force to deal with the R.W.U. claims, Mr; Jelbart presiding. Mr. J. Wordsworth came prepared with a lot of calculations bearing on the subject, and gave the following fig ures in connection with the income from, and expenditure on, 500 acres: -Expenses: Interest on capital, £150; depreciation on plant, £68; bags and seed, £142; ploughing, £78; harvesting, £76; horse feed, £1S0; total, £703, or £1 8s Id per acre. The income from 500 acres, giving 18 bushels of wheat per acre, at 3s 6d per bushel, equalled £1575, and less the expenses, £703, and left a profit of £872; 500 acres, giving 15 bushels at 3s equalled £1125, less expenses £703, and left a profit of £422; 500 acres giving 12 bushels at 3s, equal led £900, less expenses £703, and left a profit of £197. Twelve bush els was about the regular average. With the present hours of labour it will practically require the first nine bushels per acre to pay expenses, but tliere...
RECORD WHEAT LOAD. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
RECORD WHEAT LOAD. Breaking previous records seems to be the aim of many people in mat ters of sport, but in local government the greatest attempt at record break ing is indulged in by wheat growers. We read that Mr. C. IT. Grieve, of Mylandra Park, lias established an other local record in the matter of a load of wheat. Last week his waggon -"Pride of the West"-reached Gren fell, drawn by 2G bullocks, carrying 321 bags of'.wheat, weighing 27 tons. This is said to be, by far, the big gest load ever brought to Grenfell Kailway Station. Can it be wonder ed that when crossing a culvert on the road the ^waggon wheel broke through, and brought the team to a standstill. Some of the wheat had to be removed, and another team of 2G bullocks .was hitched on to draw the waggon, out, after which the load was replaced, and proceeded to the railway yards, -where it had to be partially unloaded 'again to go on to the Aveiglibridge. Very few coun try roads .. are constructed so as to carry such lof...

DETERMINING BUTTER PRICES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911

A resolution was passed at tlie last .meeting of' the Manning River Co operative Co., Ltd., to the effect that the directors of that company were of the opinion that it was in the interests 01 the butter producers of this State that more direct represen tation should he afforded the co-ope rative factories in fixing the prices of butter on the Sydney, market, and that such could only be brought about by-the constitution of a board elected by the various co-operative factories ? throughout the State.

Society, with the view of securing increased representation of factories in determining the price of butter, but the manager of that society would not meet this request. However, Mr. McDonnell is calling together a meet ing of all the co-operative factories in the State, through the Berrima District Company, to be held in Syd ney at Easter, as the Manning Ri vev Co-operative Com...
