Tapeworm in Sheep and Lambs. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
'Tapeworm in Sheep and Lambs. ;Mr. A. W. Smyth gives the follow ing useful. recipe for tapeworm in sheep and lambs:-2 oz. white ar senic, 4oz. washing soda, 2 gals, water. Boil three-quarters of an hour and strain to i-emove loose arsenic. Add water to. the above mixture, to make it up to 4 gallons, equalling a kerosene tin full. Dose for big sheep, 1 fluid ounce. For lambs six months old and over, reduce the strength by adding water to make the mixture up to G gallons. Pose 1 fluid ounce. Lambs three month and over, reduce still further, by adding water to make the mixture up to 7 or 8 gal lons. Dose, 1 fluid ounce. The slieep should be yarded over night, and give dose on an empty stomach. Great care must be taken, and it is always advisable to drench a few beforehand; and if they should die reduce the strength a little before doing the flock.

CARE OF SICK CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
CARE OF SICK CATTLE. Probably Australians are the worst people in the world at doctoring sick animals. The reason of this is not far to seek. Up to comparatively re cent times the large areas of stations prevented owners from seeing their stock frequently, and consequently animals were more likely to be found dead than sick. Again, the loss of a few animals was looked upon as an affliction which nobody escaped, and as the price of horses and other stock was low, it was not of much conse quence. The advent of the dairy farmer, the opening up of the wheat areas, and closer settlement gene rally, has caused a rise in the price of stock, which now makes the loss of a few horses or cows of some import ance. Old customs, however, die hard and there are still plenty of men who will turn a sick animal loose in a paddock, to take his chance of get ting better, rather than go to the trouble of treating him. Unfortu nately, closer settlement, in addition to increasing the price of stock gene r...
Women's Affairs CHATTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
Women's Affairs (f By 'THE WIFE." jj S^. ' CHATTER. Lady Honor Ward, the eldest daughter of Lord and Lady Dudley, has made her debut in London under the wing of her grandmother, Geor gina, Lady Dudley. Following the maxim that beauty unadorned .s beauty adorned the most, the debu tante's gown was of fine white mus lin simply made. Report says that the briglit-eyed youngster who gave her governess, Miss Wisdom, such a lively time out here, has had a pro posal already. The Lady Honor cer tainly did strike one as likely to "go off" in her first season. She has the bright, merry nature that simply takes mere man by storm. The first Australian-made destroyer was duly launched last week at Fitz roy Dock. Mrs. rearce, wife of the Minister for Defence, did the deed. With a pair of golden scissors she cut the red, white, and blue ribbons that metaphorically speaking held the war ship . Bands then played up, steam ers' siren whistles blew, and all went right merrily. Afterwards there was . an...

GILGANDRA. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
GILGANDRA. The monthly meeting of the Gil gandra i branch proved a successful one, and from the tenor of the dis cussions, and the resolutions passed, the farmers in that district fully rea lise the need to pull together, and the usefulness of their Association. The chair was taken-by Mr. It. Stan ley (president). A letter was read from Mr. T. I. Campbell, the general secretary, stating that all resolu tions from the branches for conside ration at the annual conference should be received by May 10. The W.D. Council also wrote, urging the affiliated branches to impress upon their members the desirability of vo ting " No" to the Referenda pro posals; also desiring their co-opera tion in obtaining a meeting of the council in Dubbo not later than May 5. The council also advised that re solutions for discussion at the pro-' posed meetings should reach them as soon as possible, and Affiliation fees and names of delegates to be sent were requested. The council also ad-, vocated that all br...
THE DEARTH OF TRUCKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
THE DEARTH OF TRUCKS. At' the monthly meeting of the Dubbo branch, the secretary, Mr. P. C. Buckland, was instructed to write to the executive, asking that the Chief Commissioner for Railways be waited on, and that his attention be drawn to the inconvenience caused in the country by the want of an ade quate supply of sheep and cattle trucks. The committee particularly desired that Mr. Johnson's attention be directed to one case, concerning a drover, who some days before the meeting had arrived in Dubbo with 11,000 sheep, and on applying for trucks was told he must wait for tliem till a date named, live or six days ahead, and that even then he could only have 32 trucks for his 11,000 sheep. His orders were to truck at Dubbo, and if he used the 32 trucks, the greater part of the sheep would be left behind. The question then arose what was he to do with the remainder-the majority. Would the authorities allow him to shepherd tliem on the reserve till the Railway Commissioner supplied th...
Association Doings (Continued.) WERRIS CREEK WESTERN CONNECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
i j Association Doings | (Continued.) WERRIS CREEK WESTERN CONNECTION. The connecting railway between the Northern and Western system has been a subject for agitation since the days of the late Sir John Robert son, who was the first to seriously propose it. The Father of Free Selec tion favoured a connection between Werris Creek and Wellington, while others believe in making the junction at Dubbo. At the meeting of the Dubbo F. and S. Association recently, Mr. T. A. Nicholas, secretary of the Dubbo Werris Creek Railway League, urged that the Association should support the petition in favour of the construc tion of the Dubbo-Werris Creek rail way. In the course of a long ad dress, he said: This railway was not one of local interest merely, but was of national importance, and it would have an important bearing on west ern and south-western development. The people of the south-west as far as Stoclcinbingal were prepared to support the Dubbo people, and so were the civic bodies of Warre...

WHEAT. A STRONGER MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
WHEAT. A STRONGER MARKET. The wheat market has taken 'a' turn for the better, but all the same there is very little business going on. Ship pers, in view of the fact that the English markets have steadied, have been able to raise their limits slightly, and are freely offering from 3/2% per bushel on trucks Sydney for small lots up to 3/3 for a parcel. But holders have consistently re fused to sell at these pricey and tliere . is very little doubt "that an oiler to sell a fair parcel would bring to light buyers at a distinctly higher ligure. In fact, it was stated that some buyers were on the market who would have paid up to 3/5 for a good ship ping parcel for this month's delivery, and a slightly higher figure for de livery in May. However, in the ab sence of any large transactions, it is a matter of difficulty to determine the actual level at which business could be done. Of course, shippers have been picking up small quantities here and there at the lower levels, but taking the St...
SACKS AND BAGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
SACKS AND BAGS. There has been little or 110 life in the market for cornsacks, and in view of the lack of inquiry, some holders have been inclined to cut prices rather than let any buyers slip past. The general quotation seems about 5/2 delivered on ordi nary terms, but it would be quite possible to iind sellers in some quar ters at ..bout Id less. Branbags have remained quiet, but have kept rather steadier than sacks, and though an odd lot might have been picked lip at 3/!), most holders ask an extra Vi>il. WV)olpacks have remained dull at about'2/2% to 2/3 for spots, and at 2/4 for season's delivery.

FAT STOCK. SHEEP. Market Closes Firm. The sheep and lambs penned at the Homcbusli saleyards on Monday last totalled 10,057 head, out of a list of 10,255;-representing 03 consignors. There were ejglit yardings, ranging from 500 to 700 head, but the balance was chiefly in small lots, of from 100 to 200 head. At the early part of the sale the market was', dull, prices being certainly in buyers' fa vour, especially for ewes and plain wethers, but towards the termina tion, './.buyers showed more animation, and; the market regained the levels of the previous sales. There was a fair selection of merinos forward, of good/.useful' quality, with a sprink ling of prime, but the crossbreds of fering were chiefly of indifferent quality. Prime merino wethers made to 16/0, extra to 18/8, best ewes to 15/. There were only odd crossbred wethers of prime quality forward. Best crossbred ewes made to 14/11.

The Market Mirror WOOL. Quiet, But Very Steady. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
The Market Mirror WOOL. Quiet, But Very Steady. Since the termination of the a\ic tjon,; sales.^ last' week, the Sydney wool market has relapsed into a quiet condition.' This lias not been due to a lack of buying power, for inquiries continue numerous, but there is at the present time very little wool .available. The passed-in lots from last week's sales have most ly found buyers,, and at prices which exceeded the bids offered in the sale room, while the output from fell mongering establishments is readily .snapped up. In regard to values there has been 110 alteration since the auc tion, but judging from the prices paid privately, the market continues in a very firm condition, and nearly all sections of the buying trade would . be willing operators if the wool was available. Buyers, too, seem to have every confidence as to the future, this point being substantiated by the fact that they would purchase for ward if they could. Supplies from the Northern State, and also from the early ...

THE PRODUCTION OF FLAX. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 13 April 1911
THE PRODUCTION OF FLAX. The production of flax is expected to develop into an important indus try in Victoria. Small growers are to make an auxiliary crop of it. It is estimated that 1000 acres were raised in the Warrigal district by im proved methods. The average was 2% ,tons to the acre, valued in its raw state at £3 10s to £4 per acre. The flax plant also yields linseed up to 18 bushels, worth 7s 6d per bushel. A drawback is the difficulty of get ting the straw treated so that it may become a marketable product. There are two mills in the State, but it-, is:-urged'that the farmer should co-operate in erecting their own plants.
