THE LAND TAX. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 16 November 1894

.THE LAND TAX. 7-- 0~-- The press of this colony is evincing a great deal of interest in agriculture, and matters political are shaped to bear an agricultural importance as they favor defined party views. It is no new thing for Victorians-or as far as that goes, for persons residing in any- civilised country-to have it impressed upon them how fertile and valuable is the soil they tread on and labor with. dany regret now'that six or seven years ago they attached any great im portance to the value of Victorian land. Many regret also that the use of land escaped their attention. This regret is deepest instilled in those dwelling in the larger towns and manufacturing centres. To them the decrease of a farthing a pound in tlhe' price of wool, or an in crease of threepence a bushel in wheat, is deemed a trifling thing, for, with it. all, is not the farmer apparently well fed, comfortably clothed, and, for aught the townsman knows, well housed too. The melancholy of thie silent bush, the t...
