LUCERNE STRAINS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 28 April 1911
LUCERNE STRAINS. A valuable treatise on the subject of irrigating lucerne, illustrated by numerous diagrams, lias been re printed by the intelligence Depart ment of South Australia, with some preliminary notes by Mr. S. Mcin tosh, Superintendent of Irrigation and Reclamation. The treatise was writ ten by Samuel Forticr, of the United States Department of , Agriculture and is entitled "irrigation of Alfalfa," the name by which lucerne is known in America. But this most valuable of fodder plants, which was carried from Persia into Greece 2400 years ago, has gone by thirty diil'erent names, half of which were prefixed to the name of clover, one of them being " Lucerne Clover," from which the second word has now been dropped, and the name of the Swiss lake near whose waters it has long been cultivated, is pieserved as the popular name in Australia and spelt with a small initial. The name "al falfa" is derived from an Arabic word meaning " the best fodder," and deserves to prevail becaus...

GROWERS TO SELL THEIR OWN . WHEAT. There is a strong movement in tlie Southern State to arrange direct con signments of wheat by the growers, the same as with butter, into the hands of reliable brokers, together with ,. supervision by representatives of the growers themselves. . At a meeting of Nathalia farmers figures read, gave the buyers' price of wheat that day at 2s lid per bushel, while the selling price ,of Australian wheat in London for. the: previous cbiy was 4s 8d.

Tomatoes weighing 21bs. arid '12 oz.' have been grown along tlie Murray in South Australia. .

It is not always that a public offi cer is the recipient of such encomiums from the particular public he has been serving, as is Mr. Sutton, tfye wheat ex perimentalist of N.S.W., who is about to take another post in Western Aus tralia. The expressions of regret at the fact that so capable an officer is being lost to N.S.W., and the wheat growers of this State, have been gene ral, and on Saturday night last, a number of growers and grain mer chants and other friends of Mr. Sut ton's, met in Sydney to place on more formal record, their appreciation of Mr. Sutton and his work. Most appropriately, the chair was taken by such a representative wheat grower as Mr. Cartwrignt, of Te mora, who spoke of tne extent to which he himself had been indebted to Mr. Sutton's worn. He had been wheat-farming for 28 years, and never had a complete failure. In the drought years of 1902 he had a live bushe...

COMEBACK V. MANITOBA. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 28 April 1911
COMEBACK V. MANITOBA A few years ago Manitoba wheat was regarded as the best of its class in the world, and it is, therefore, all the more gratifying to know that, thanks to ulie researches of the late William Farrer, New South Wales has produced, in the now-famous Comeback, a wheat superior to the re nowned Canadian class. As a result of tests by the experts in the chemi cal section of the Department of Ag riculture, a bag of Comeback wheat exhibited at the Royal Agricultural Show has Avon champion honours. Comeback is one of Farrer's best me dium-hard varieties, or as they are now classed, New South Wales strong white, it was proved after careful milling tests that Comeback yields a high percentage of flour, of even higher flour strength than the red wheats of the Manitoba class. So for the future the best Australian wheat may be classed as among the best in the world, and the Department is not going to lose any time in making known the fact among the millers of Great Britain.

FLOUR. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 28 April 1911
FLOUR. Very little activity has as yet supervened in the flour market, in ternal requirements seemingly hav ing been mostly anticipated during the last buying spurt of the bakers. Of course, small sales have been made daily, and there has been a good deal of exporting going on in the cheaper brands, but at low prices. Though there has been no alteration in prices of flour, both bran and pollard have advanced, and are now quoted'at the higher levels of £5 per ton. There is a good deal of inquiry for these lines at the present time. Quotations for flour as officially stated are as follows : Last Week. This Week. Sydney .. £8/5/ £8/5/ Melbourne £8 £8 Adelaide £8 to £8/5/ £8 to £8/5/ These prices are for leading brands in bakers' lots.
WHEAT. Slight Spurt in Business. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 28 April 1911
WHEAT. Slight Spurt in Business. Operations in wheat during the week have been on a more liberal scale than previously, due to the lact that the market has gradually im proved until shippers have been otter ing the equivalent of 3/ per bushel on country stations for ordinary par cels. The contributory causes to this movement have been a slight better ment, wiui more inquiry m the Eng lish markets, which has naturally made it possible for shippers to pay a little higher price, and also some slight easing in freights, though this year freight rates have kept dis tinctly firmer than usual, and even at the present time vessels cannot be picked up at under 22/ per ton, with steamer parcels naturally less. Still, they have come back something, and with rather higher markets on the other side of the world shippers have been buying at better rates. Then, too, there have recently been some local buyers on tiie market who have stimulated business for the time being, and millers have likewise ...
AGENTS' REPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 28 April 1911
AGENTS' REPORTS. Dalgety and Company, Ltd., report: -Preparations are at present being made for the next series of wool sales in the Sydney market, the dates for which have been fixed for May 9th, 10th, and 11th, when about 15,000 bales will be submitted to the trade. Con signments are arriving in fair volume, but some of the early shorn clips will not be sufficiently complete to enable them to be offered at the May sales, and will be catalogued for the June series. There is a strong demand for any lots available for sale by private treaty, tnough the quantity changing hands is small, as practically the whole of the fresh wool is being held for the auction sales. News receiv ed from Europe with respect to the outlook of the market continues ex ceedingly satisfactory, and a good out let is expected for all clips becoming available during the course of the next few months. The position generally has been made very much clearer, ow ing to the fact having been established beyond doubt t...

£> o= The Market Mirror b= =d> WOOL. Encouraging Prospects for the Sales. Transactions in wool have continued extremely limited during the week ; in fact, the trade have not been tak ing themselves very seriously just at present, but have been reserving their energies, firstly, for the auction sales to be held in Brisbane on May 2, when some very good catalogues will be submitted, representing, in all pro bability, between 15,000 and 16,000 bales ; and, secondly, for the Sydney auctions, which commence on Mon day, May 8, and will continue on xor four days if the catalogues prove sufficiently large. Respecting the Brisbane sales, the wet weather recently experienced in the more central districts of that State have rather retarded shearing, and therefore the wool has not been arriving at Brisbane as freely as would.otherwise have been the case. Still, the leading selling agents report that nevertheless there will be some important catalogues submitted. With regard to the Sydney ...

LAND ON BURRAWANG. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 28 April 1911
LAND ON BURRAWANG. An announcement appears else where in our columns of the first subdivision of the tamous Burrawang Estate, comprising some 31,000 acres, which will be offered in areas of 640 acres up to 1400 acres. This estate has produced some of the finest stock in Australia, while from the results obtained by its owners from those portions which have been cultivated it is certain that for agricultural pur poses its possibilities are immense. Therefore, in response to repeated offers to purchase, they have agreed to sell the 31,000 acres named. .Buy ers will find excellent facilities for water conservation, and further sup plies can be obtained at very shallow depths. Large areas are now prac tically ready for ploughing, while not much expense need be incurred in rendering the entire area available for agricultural purposes. This cer tainly presents a splendid opportunity for the settler on the lookout for goo^. land.
THE WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 28 April 1911
THE WEATHER. During" the week ended April 25 there was not a spec of rain over the greater part of the State. In the Western division the only record was ? 3 points at Euston on the 25tlx ; the ' north-west plains and the central west plains had not a single point all the week. And the same has to be said of the north-west slopes, the central west slopes, and the central table lands. liiverina scored 2 point's at Plenty, on the 24th, but otherwise was as dry as the proverbial badger's back. On the south-west slopes, Junee, Albmy, Adelong, and Tumut received 14 points between them, and all the other stations nothing. The absolute fineness on the north tablelands was only otherwise at Av rnidale, where 10 points were re corded on the 21st. The south table lands were not visited - except at Kiandra and Bombala, where 55 and 3S points respectively were scored., Jhe only stations 011 the north coast that were not rainless were Clarence Heads (4 points) and Kempsey (9 points).

NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 28 April 1911
NOTES. A daily contemporary recently quo ted from an American medical mail, who tries to show that grit is un necessary for fowls. He even goes so far as to say that it is positive ly harmful. It may be possible to prove this from a scientific standpoint, but prac tical poultrymen wili laugh at. it. As a large breeder of ducks, the writer has proven that when the box containing the supply of shell grit runs out, then the supply of eggs fails, and if the defect is not reme died then it will stop altogether. This has occurred so often as to be beyond dispute. From grit, the birds get the mate rial to grind the food in their giz zards, and theie is little doubt but that in the process they secure mine ral substances necessary for the pro duction of eggs and the maintenance of health. Of course, with fowls on free range of the farm, there is little need to supply artificial grits, for the birds will pick up in their wanderings all they require. But if large numbers are stocked on limite...
SUCCESSFUL SHIPMENT OF PEARS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 28 April 1911
SUCCESSFUL SHIPMENT PEARS. The success of the Victorian ship ment of pears by the Somerset, is claimed to be the most important de velopment yet identified with the fruit export trade in the southern State. The London prices for the shipment were 10s to 10s per case. The pears, which were of the Bon Chretien variety, were pre-cooled, and then stored in a chamber with a regulated temperature.
ROBBING THE FRUIT-GROWERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 28 April 1911
ROBBING THE FRUIT-GROWERS. "A Farmer/'' .writing, to ,a daily . contemporary, exposes an evil which might very well :be brought under the notice of the police aiithorities, partof whoser business it is to pre vent petty larceny. The writer says: -On: a recent visit to Sydney I took the advantage of seeing for myself! the way fruit is handled, both by fail and by-steamer. A consignment of fruit from the southern line, 320 miles from Sydney, tdok over four days to reach its destination. Some of the cases had been opened, and half ; the contents were gone, and the rest so badly knocked about that they were almost .useless. The grower gets little enough after paying for cases, freight, cartage, commission, etc., even for , good fruit, but when treat ed in this way, it is very dishearten-, ing This is by rail, but by water it is almost' as bad. I went the same day to see a.Hobart vessel .discharge fruit, and the way it progressed was shameful. .In lowering it to the wharf, it would often...
THE NEED FOR THOUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 28 April 1911
THE NEED FOR THOUGHT. Probably there is nothing connec ted with the farming industry which receives so little attention-nay to leration-as advice about fowls. You can talk horses, cattle, sheep, and, yes, even goats, and get a hear ing; but mention fowls, and you are met with the reply that fowls don't pay. We are not going to argue the point here, but the fact is that the writer has been given the job of fill ing this poultry column, and if it is possible to change the state of affairs i mentioned, then it will be changed. We cannot force the. readers of this paper to read the notes in this sec tion, but it may be possible to con vince them that they are written in earnest, and not for fun. The writer has been making his living from poultry, directly and in directly, for more than twelve years; he has passed through the worst times that ever beset poultry keepers in this country, and he is now enjoying, with others, the best season ever known. In his experience he has met with enou...
Poultry ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 28 April 1911
ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. "Farmer."-The old tradition that common fowls lay better, and aire hardier than the so-called fancy breeds, is as dead as Julius Caesar, though it occasionally rears its head. The fact of the matter is that mo dern breeds are just as necessary to successful poultry keeping as they are in other kinds osf live-stock, and perhaps more so, since it takes a lot of fowls to make a man's living, and there is a larger profit per head avail able with fowls than other live-stock, in comparison with the cost of food. A fowl will cost' to feed from 5s to 7s per year, counting all food at re tail prices, and :slie will lay from 10s to 2os worth of eggs. On the farm the greater part of that 10s (or more) will be. clear profit. When any farmer can -send me a pen of six common pullets that will lay 250 eggs each in 12 months, as pure breds have done several times in Govcrnmentally-conducted competi tions, I will cave in. And it takes a pretty good larm animal of any sort ...
