CONTRIBUTED ARTICLES on Topical Subjects. LAND ADMINISTRATION BY COMMISSION. III. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 February 1906

LAND ADMINISTRATION BY COMMISSION. .... nL .:'' ';V'v::.:- ' By e.b. :;;:/'? ?:.'.. .--, , The.jPJea for administration by a pow erful and competent commission is a plea , for . continuity of policy, where, same is . found to.be effective; the introduction of ' business, principles, '(rather to the neg lect . of forms and cast-iron . regulations Which in, the past have so often been mis taken for ' essential's, to the exclusion of large considerations of policy; and the accelerations of administrative action, usually— perhaps unavoidably— slow and tedious (. under the present system.

WHEAT IN THE HAY DISTRICT. A Serious Handicap. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 February 1906

WHEAT IN THE HAY DISTRICT. A Serious Hanrlinan. A wire from Hay says : — A large quan- V tity of wheat .is being despatched this season from the Carrathool railway sta tion, nearly the whole of which is being sent from the Gunbar and Hillston Dis tricts. The wheat is of excellent milling quality, and growers are receiving top prices for it. The absence of railway fa cilities is proving a serious tax on the farmers, as the lowest rates paid to car riers for the conveyance of grain to Car rathool are:— From Gunbar, as; from M'Kinley, 2s 6d ; and from Hillston, 3s per bag; 40,000 bags will be trucked at Carrathool this year. ,.;..-

HARROW ESTATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 February 1906

HARROW ESTATE. On February 17th, 'Harrow,' one of the show places of the Darling Downs, Queensland, was thrown open for sale by the original owners, in sub-division, and buyers will now have an oportunity of securing a home on one of the hnest estates in all Australia. It originally was all one with 'Eton Vale,' but for the convenience of adjusting partnership ac counts, the two were divided some years ago. It is situated on the main railway line between Sydney and Brisbane, while the Pittsworth railway line traverses the wes tern boundary. Six to eight trains pass daily, and passengers can alight at three different railway stations, according to their fancy ; and being within eight miles of the large town of Toowoomba, it may be said to be one of the most conven iently-situated that a farmer could desire. We will suppose that the intending pur chaser makes Toowoomba his headquart ers, and obtaining, as he can do, a buggy and a good pair of horses, he will start out by road on his t...

THE FLOODS AND RABBITS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 February 1906

THE FLOODS AND RABBITS. Nature in one act can do more towards rabbit extinction than man aided by science has accomplished for years. Our Charleville correspondent wires (says the Brisbane 'Dailv Mail') that the Mitchell rabbit fence has been much damaged by floods, but the same visitation has drowned millions of rabbits on the Lower Warrego and Paroo districts. Some ema ciated sheep have been lost through . the effect of the heavy rains, but on the whole the gains will be enormously in excess of the losses, for- at least a 12 months' grass and water will be provided over hundreds of thousands of square miles of country in the droughty West.

APPRAISEMENTS—II. ARE THE ASSESSORS COMPETENT? [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 February 1906

APPRAISEMENTS-II. By L.C. ARE THE ASSESSORS COMPETENT? Referring again to the matter of ap praisements, with which must be coupled the question of the general administra tion of the land laws, it will be admitted bv every fair-minded citizen, having a knowledge of this subject, that our one chance of salvation in the future lies in the hope that a strong Government will some clay take in hand the cleansing of the Augean stables, through every office, from the smallest back-country town right down to the massive building in Bent street. This course has become a neces sity, because such a vein of hostility has arisen between the highly-paid Govern ment officials on the one hand, and the settlers or would-be settler on the other, as to preclude all hope under present con ditions of our people forming themselves into that happy, contented, and reliable class of citizen which we believe the ma jority of all classes are now so desirous of encouraging to settle on the land in this State.

JERILDERIE. State of the District.—Auction Sales.—Nowrania Farms. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 February 1906

JERILDERIE. State of the District. — Auction Sales. — Nowranfa Farms. The weather continues dry and hot, an'' rain is now required to replenish tanks and dams. The wheat carting is about over, and farmers will have a few weeks' leisure before starting ploughing. Great satisfaction is expressed by the farmers at getting a newspaper of their own. It is felt that we will now have a live paper that will staunchly advocate the farmers' cause. Touching land matters, we trust the editor will keep an eagle eye on land transactions, more especially, auctions sales of country lands, and warn districts when same are gazetted. The farmers in Jerilderie district were nearly caught napping over a recent auction sale, and only the prompt action of our General Secretary, Mr. T. I. Campbell, blocked the sale. The Lands Depart ment, instead of encouraging those sales which play into the hands of the large holders, should insist on an exchange near some settlers, with a view of consoli dating settleme...

QUIRINDI. The annual meeting of this branch was held on Saturday at Huxley's Central Hotel. There was a good attendance, but the very dry weather and- shortage of water prevented many of our farmers from attending, they having to drive their stock a long distance to water. Mr. W. Hall, of Braefield, was unani mously elected chairman ; Messrs. Brodie and Martin vice-chairmen; Mr. N. Jef feries treasurer ; and Messrs. John Perry and B. Finnerty joint secretaries. Five new members were enrolled. The balance-sheet showed a good sum to credit side. The grain shed has over 7000 bags of wheat — nearly ,£30 in revenue coming in already. Mr. John Perry has been lessee for .four years on behalf of the board. It was decided to ask the Member for the electorate to object to the sale of a reserve by public auction, and a petition is being signed protesting against this sale. It was decided to get the Minister to make available for settlement under the new Act other reserves in the district. The ...

MINOR SURGICAL OPERATIONS ON THE FARM. Arrest of Bleeding. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 February 1906

MINOR SURGIGAL OPERATIONS ON THE FARM. Arrest of Bleeding. Before we can understand the methods by which bleeding1 can be stopped, wo must understand the construction of blood vessels. Arteries arc tubes, which con sist or mice coais, namely, internal, mid dle, and external. The external coat closely resembles serous membrane (that is, the membrane lining1 the lung1 cavity, or thai round the liver, for instance). The middle coat is formed of muscular yellow elastic fibres. The external coat is com-' posed principally of connective tissue, and is consequently much the strongest of the three. Veins arc of similar structure to arteries, except that their coats are much thinner and weaker. * ♦ * It is very necessary to know the differ ence between arterial (blood from an ar tery) and venous (blood from a vein) blood, for the reason that arterial bleed ing is so much more dangerous than ven ous, and requires more prompt treatment to save the animal's life. Another reason why the differen...

BRANCH REPORTS— continued. SUNNYSIDE. Road Matters— Members' Fees. At the monthly meeting the attendance was good, the President (Mr. Chick) being in the chair. Voluminous correspondence was dealt with, relating- chiefly to minor matters. Amongst the letters was one from the Minister for Works, giving a long ex planation of the delay in opening the road from the trucking yard to the rail way station. He said he had given in structions to the local superintendent to have the road fenced off and opened without delay. Pursuant to notice of motion given last meeting, Mr. Humphrey moved and Mr. J. W. Adams seconded that the annual subscription be raised to four shillings, the present subscription of 3s. being in adequate to meet expenses owing to the fact that 3s. a year had to be paid to the Head Association for each member, to help to pay the salary of the General Secretary, who hitherto had worked gratis.

SHEEP FOR THE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 February 1906

SHEEP FOR THE FARM. South Australian Farmers were the first to take up the combined system of seed and manure drilling, and they have been equally ahead in adopting the sheep fal low rotation in order to secure the ad vantages or me iam» export traae in com bination with cereal cultivation. In the. last number of the 'Monthly Journal' of the South Australian Department of Agriculture the views of several practical men on this subject are given. Sheep, says Mr. \Y\. Morrish,. Crystal Brook, are more profitable than cows on the farm. Sheep are a distinct help to the farmer, apart from the revenue they bring in. They assist to clean the land by eating down the weeds, then saving a good deal of labour in working the land. Unlike dairying, sheep involve the farmer in no particular labour, an im portant item where, as is often the case, nearly all the work of the farm is done *^ by the farmer and the members of his family. Apart from being of value in re- ' ducing the labour on the farm, ...

LAND COMMISSION JOTTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 February 1906

LAND COMMISSION JOTTINGS. From Mr. Howard Speight's evidence, November Qth : — 'Mr Campbell had something to say to your Honor about the high values set out in the 'Gazette' notices as having' been placed upon Crown Improvements on Settlement Lease Areas. The experi ence of the district from which I come, and it is one of the principal districts in this State which has been affected by the vnlup.s nf thnsn Crown imnrnvp.Tnfints. is that an exorbitant value is first of all im posed by the Crown officers, and unless the Settlement lessee g-oes to the trouble to employ at a high cost ex pert valuators to put a fair value before the Board, the gazetted value will stand, and what is more, the officer conducting the case for the Crown when these im provements are being valued often holds back the vital page in the Crown Valuat or's report, and that is the page which gives the value of these improvements to the incoming tenant. That has con stantly occurred in the district from which I com...
