Will send you a report later. It's a good line for you to publish the pol icy of the Association occasionally, for when a man reads that he knows jolly well his turn has come to give in his name as a subscriber.'

THE WONDERFUL MERINO. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 13 June 1906
THE WONDERFUL MERINO. The number of merino sheep in the world amounts to some hundreds of millions, yet no one can say where the breed originated. Spain was famous 'for its fine wool in the time of the Romans, and while this was probably merino, there is no positive evidence on 'that point. Prior to 1750 not a single merino sheep existed outside the iMiiguum ui opain , me apamarcis, knowing their value, guarded them jealously. About ten years later than the date mentioned, the Government of that country, from motives of policy, presented a few of them to some of the neighbouring Powers, and these be came the progenitors of the famous ? German families, notably the Silesian and the Saxon. The Rambouillets, which are the French merinos, origin ated in a raid directed by Napoleon, and which resulted in the capture of 200,000. of the Spanish sheep. The American or Vermont family, so popu lar in Australia, had its beginning in the importation to that country direct from their Spanish hom...

DUBBO. Parliamentary Candidates.— Land Board Elections. At the monthly meeting on Satur day, the secretary, Mr. W. A. Pollock, moved — 'That this branch asks the co operation of all other branches of the Fanners' .'ind Settlers' Association in this electorate to combine to select and support a farmers' and settlers' candi date at the next general election for the State Parliament, and that nil the branches in the State be urged to do and so form a farmers' party in the State Parliament.'

-BRANCH MEETINGS. MUNDOORAN. Looking for Better Days. Owing to the very dry time we are having our branch is not as active as it should be, but I think things will right themselves as soon as the dry spell breaks. There are no unemploy ed here. People are leaving 7;- a clay to go rabbiting, so bunny is having a rough time, and he is providing good wages for a great number of people, and if the price of his skin keeps up to the present level for the next three months, it will go a long way to settle the grey curse. -^ -^ 1^1 4* ai- ?*? -— ? -»?

The Australasian edition of the 'Re- view of Reviews,' in publishing last month some diagrams purporting to show the strength of Socialism in the Federal Parliament, gives a letter written to a Melbourne citizen by Mr. Watson, the Federal Labor leader, in reply to a request for his definition of socialism. ' ? ; 'In reply to your letter,'. Mr. Watson Wrote ? 'I mnv snv tlinr in mv vjmu those people are right who class as socialism all schemes for the advance ment of the community. While I think that to be so technically, the word has acquired a significance as particularly applying to collectivism as against individualism. Accepting . this view, I .should, define socialism as aiming at, tho. abolition. of the present competitive, and therefore chaotic in dividualism, with the object of substi tuting the collective ownership of land and capital and the scientific control of production and exchange, and dis tribution on behalf of the whole, people...
