POULTRY ON THE FARM. THE LATE SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 6 June 1906
I- POULTRY ONTHeIfARM. - THE LATE SHOW. Contrary to expectations, the show of the Poultry Club was, from the standpoint of 'gate money,' a disap pointment. The site was most cen tral, entries were numerous, and the quality of the exhibits high-class, but the sight-seeing public did not roll up to the extent that was anticipated. It is a pity that interest in poultry shows is limited to the comparative few. Almost every householder in the State with any approach to a back-yard keeps a few fowls, but there are not ? l-im fnllf whn Iwln to SWL'II the JTatC. Those who attend are the enthusiasts, and they unfortunately are not suffi ciently numerous to make the show the success that it should be. ♦ ♦ * In the United Kingdom it is other wise. Successful poultry exhibitions may be counted during any year by hundreds. No doubt an important factor, contributing much to this state of affairs, is the large population ; but perhaps another, hardly less potent, is the more widespread interest ta...

SALTED AND UNSALTED BUTTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 6 June 1906
SALTED AND UNSALTED BUTTER. . In reply to a question concerning the difference in weight between salted and unsalted butter, Mr. Crowe, Vic torian Dairy Exports' Superintendent, says: — 'Salted butter includes fat, moisture, curd, salt, etc. Unsalted butter, as usually made for export, contains fat, moisture, curd, etc., and no salt. The average proportion of moisture in unsalted butter for ex port, analysed last season, was 0.73 per cent, more than in salted. . The from a given quantity of freshly churn ed butter' is influenced chiefly by the amount of moisture allowed to remain in the manufactured article, whether salted or unsalted ; but, all things equal, the addition of 'the, usual amount of salt (3 per cent.) and. one working increases the weight from' 1 to ii per cent. -With a second work -ing. the salt butter, tinder ordinary conditions, loses more thnn : 1}. per cent., whilst the' unsalted would lose very little;, and under such conditions a: given quantity of freshly churn...

IS IT SOCIALISTIC? [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 6 June 1906
IS IT SOCIALISTIC? ?The writer does not profess to know much about socialism, having, only read a few extracts from the English translations of Marx, Lassellcs, and one or two others of that school, nor can I be termed a politician, not hav ing exercised the franchise for over fif teen ears. Yet I cannot help thinking that if grabbing the result of another man's hard-earned labour is socialistic, there is a considerable number of the dairymen of this State socialists, as well as the landlords. For example, a dairy farmer rents a farm for a term of, say, five years. He of his wife and family, and perhaps other paid laborers, he improves the value of the farm in the hope of getting a renewal of his lease at the end of the term. What is his surprise to find his next-door neighbour offering a rent value over his head, amounting to the improvements which he and his family have made on the farm, and if he is not prepared to advance the extra year ly rental his neighbour gets the farm. Ano...
LAND MONOPOLY. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 6 June 1906
LAND MONOPOLY. In a recent issue of 'The Farmer ? and Settler' the writer drew attention to the fact that land monopoly was a growing evil, and mentioned Shoal haven district amongst others as an in stance of its ruinous effects. ' Since then the Nowra (Shoalhaven) 'Colo- nist' has the following announcement to put before the Australian reader : — 'The public schools of Tcrrara and Wnrricrnn. nrn tn hr» rlnsnrl. nnrl nr rangements have been made to have the few children at each centre con veyed by coach to the Nowra school.' As the ' Colonist' rightly says: — 'There is not much news in this para graph' ; but, says thC'Lismore 'Chron- icle : ' The schools (in question) have fallen so much in status owing to. de crease in population that there is no chance of their again improving.' This1 is the experience of the writer, who has been watching the progress ( ?) of Australia for forty years. Take one instance : On the Wentworth Es tate in Illawarra, where forty children were raised fort...
THE FAVORITE TOMATO. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 6 June 1906
f HE FAVORITE TOMATO. Some growers, 'among them, the as tute Chinmrmrii put their seedlings out in, autumn, with the object of securing ' carjyjv fruit. If. planted early enough, thcy-fnake fair growth before the cold weather stops their progress. Should frost touch them, the grower's hopes arc at. an end, but this may be n verted by the erection of a slight hessinn ?shelter, -which will also exclude the wind. With the approach of spring they will make new growth, but de spite the prevalence of the practice, we do not think it possesses any ad vantage over spring-sown seedlings, which are kept going from the jump. To our mind the better plan is to sow the seed on n hot-bed (affording- some shelter) in July, and then, plant out when all clanger from frost is over,
