POULTRY for PROFIT. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 February 1906
POULTRY for PROFIT. A few weeks since the city experts were amazed to learn that one of the most suc cessful poultry-breeders in the Common wealth hatched chickens all the year round, which laci, mui.ii cis n suii-uiscu the experts or theoretical poultry-farmers, adds yet another testimony to the well proved adage that 'An ounce of fact is worth a ton of theory.' One of the most rigidly-held articles in the creed of the theorist is that chickens cannot be suc cessfully reared if hatched later than the month of November, but along comes a man who makes his living at the busi ness — one whose name is a household word in connection with his particular breed — and he declares, 'I hatch them all the year round, and rear them, too.' There is no reason in the world why this should not be. * * * Certainly, spring - hatched chicks, if intended for the show pen, get the best chance, as they escape the hot weather, trying alike to all life, whether animal, bird, or vegetable, but we have hatch...
SYMPATHY. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 February 1906
SYMPATHY. By A. Cynic. Perhaps the earliest and the latest thing that a human being looks for is sympa thy; and it must grieve the most callous to so seldom meet with it in this 'vale of tears.' The babe on its mother's knee crows and smiles when it sees the sympa thetic smiles on the faces of those who surround it, and the tottering veteran in life's battle who has carried his flag far beyond the allotted threescore years and ten, smiles wearily at the love and sym pathy that is showered all too late upon his head. 'Poor old grand-dad!' His years, everything, have placed him be yond the enjoyment of life, and now he gets what in the earlier days would have lightened many a weary load, and renew ed -his strength for the; stormy battle .of life. It is now dust and ashes to his taste, although had it been bestowed when it could have been appreciated, it might have changed the whole current of his life. We see a couple embark upon the sea of life. They seem to live for each other. The ...

THE FIRE FIEND. Loose on the Lachlan. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 February 1906
THE FIRE FIEND. Loose on the Lachlan. Writing under date 12th instant from Cudgellico, Branch Secretary Knight says : — Bush fires have swept the selectors out around here. The fire started at Wood stock, situated on the banks of the Lach lan, about nine miles north-west from Cudgellico, on Friday last, and swept all fences before it. As far as I can hear no stock have been lost and no houses, but there were several narrow escapes. Fences and grass were the main losses, and coming so soon after the late drought will put the selector back on the mark. Among the selectors who have lost all fences and grass are : George Wood, Wm. Irvine, Charles Phillips, senr., James Molloy, George Armitage, Samuel Norris, Ewen McKay (fences, grass and two hay stacks), George McRae, Farquhar McRae, George Evans, Arthur Webster, William Conway, Charles Phillips, junr. (partly burnt), A. Webster, John Mclnnes, Wm. Cairns, and John Laurie. The principal fences were rabbit-proof. I never saw such a clean ...
RABBITS AND THE BIRDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 February 1906
RABBITS AND THE BIRDS. Mr. W. M. Hamlet, Government An alyst, places our present methods of rab bit destruction in the following order of' efficiency : — ? ' (1.) Rabbit-oroof fencine. ? (II.) Poisoning. . ? ; (III.) Trapping, hunting, and shooting1. (IV.) The Rodier method. ? ??' (V.) Fumigation. (VI.) Steaming the burrows. (VII.) Destruction ot the rabbit har bors. - ? :'?' (VIII.) Ferreting and employing natu ral enemies. ? ! (IX.) Killing by infectious diseases. He is averse to poisoning, on account of the 'immense sacrifice of .bird life,' but he has apparently overlooked the fact that the present custom is to plant the poison baits below the surface of the land, so that in ordinary circumstances rhey are beyond the reach of birds.

GOOMOORAH. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 February 1906
C0OM00RAH. The branch met on 13th instant. There was a fair attendance of members, Mr. F. Coggan, president, in the chair. The secretary read correspondence, which was ?dealt with. A tree discussion took place on the re solutions passed at the Glen Innes con ference of delegates in December last, xelating to the improvement leases trou ble. The resolutions were unanimously ?endorsed. The wheat crops here were not as good as anticipated, owing to a spell of dry *? weather, but still an average of about 14 bushels to the acre was realised. The corn crop is good, never better seen in the district ; while grass is in abundance, and all stock are in excel lent condition. -\ This is a splendid district, composed of rich chocolate ridges and black soil flats. But there is one serious drawback : the land is held by large owners, and mostly used as a sheepwalk,i one man only bene fiting where hundreds could make good homes if they could get a footing on the Jand.
WALMER. The Grey Curse—Enterprising Station-owners. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 February 1906
WALMER. The Grey Curse — Enterprising Station owners. Our association held a meeting on February 8th. A few small local mat ters were dealt with, no other business of any importance being transacted. The rabbit question overshadows every thing else with our members. It is a fight 'to the death ; one side or the other must go. There is no hope at all of living and letting the rabbits live too. Everybody about here is wire-netting. We think that is the only reliable method. A disease— if one is procurable— will come too late for- this district ; _we cannp.t afford to wait for that. Goonoo, a station of between 20^000 and 30,000 acres, is now' all netted in, and the owners intend subdividing into com paratively small areas. This property comprises much broken, hilly ground, in terspersed with good agricultural land. Wherever possible this latter is being cleared and let out. on the halves. The owners think this the best means of ban ishing the 'grey curse.' Rabbit destruction has been ...

HENTY. Strong Comments on the Census Paper— Shire Boundary— Mr. Ashton's Action re Reserves — A Good Sample of Wheat. The ordinary 'Snetting was held in the School of Arts on February 3rd, the Pre sident, Dr. Cameron, being in the chair. The attendance was moderate, number ing about twenty, which may be consider ed satisfactory, as the wheat carting is still in full blast. i^ocai matters Deing disposed or satis factorily, the chief discussion centred . round the census paper, as received from the Intelligence Department. Some mem bers considered that the papers were of an objectionable and inquisitorial nature ; , others that they were unnecessary, as the , Government knew perfectly well that the demand for land was intense, and in creasing more rapidly than the supply, and that the inquiry was only subterfuge ; others, again, supported the census, as by its means the Minister would be placed in possession of ' black and white evidence, which would enable him to confound all opposit...
THE GLOUCESTER ESTATE. FARMS FOR PRIVATE SALE. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 February 1906
THE GLOUCESTER E8TATE. FARMS FOR PRIVATE SALE. A good chance for obtaining- farms with river frontages is afforded by the com pany which has taken in hand the sub division of the Gloucester Estate, and those who are on the look out for land suitable tor general farming, dairying', or grazing- purposes should lose no time in communicating with the company, whose address is 45 Hunter-street, Sydney, or the local atrent. Mr. I. A. Mackenzie. The estate was tormeny part of a large g-runt acquired from the Crown in the early clays by the A. A. Company. '1 his company was formed in 1S23, and origi nally obtained one million acres, streicn ing from the Hunter to the Manning Rivers, and also to the coast. After wards the coast land was exchanged for half a million acres of pastoral country in the New Lngland district, now known as Warrah, which the company still works as a sheep and cattle station. The com pany had its headquarters at Stroud, and subsidiary stations were established at Boor...
PERSONAL MINISTERIAL INSPECTION. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 February 1906
PERSONAL MINISTERIAL IN SPECTION. To the Editor. Sir, — It was with great pleasure that we observed the Minister for Lands un dertaking such work as the personal in spection of the Ganmain Reserve. Such inspection enables him to form an inde pendent judgment of any matter under consideration, and to bring a clear and unbiassed mind to decide on matters con cerning which there is necessarily differ ences of orjinion in local circles. The Minister would deserve the best thoughts of the community if he would spend a few days in examining the Gwy dir Watercourse Lands. These comprise a very large area of Crown lands that have been converted from superior graz ing land to a huge mass of reed beds, by the diversion of the main waters of the Gwydir River from their original channel to an overflow covering as much as 300, 000 acres. The Moree Land Board have recom mended certain cuttings, to cost in all not more than ,£5000, by which the water will be diverted back to its original channels,...

THE RABBIT A NATIONAL CALAMITY. WIRE NETTING FOR FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 February 1906
THE RABBIT A NATIONAL CALAMITY. WIRE NETTING FOR FARMERS. To the Editor 'Farmer and Settler.' Sir, — I was very pleased to read your article on the above. There is no doubt if the Government fail to do their duty in this matter they will be surprised in the near future to find what the State has lost by the destruction caused by rabbits. '? In this district alone the loss to set tlers would amount to thousands of pounds for last year. Whole paddocks ing ? the continued use of the poison cart. In my opinion^ the poisoning is going to be very little check on the pest. He is : a national calamity, and should be treated as such by the Government, and not ? ;:as ' an; ? individual affair. If : some thing is not done the- whole State will suffer,1 and that 'severely. ' I consider the whole of the country should contribute to the expense of cop ing- with so great a curse, and not saddle the 'man on the land', with the whole burden.^ The loss' sustained is bad enough, to say nothing about t...
THE BEGINNINGS OF DAIRY CATTLE RAISING. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 February 1906
THE BEGINNINGS OF DAIRY CATTLE RAISING. As many as were the gradations through which, the mind of man must have necessarily passed in advancing from that state of barbarism and ignor ance of early clays to that high degree of civilisation and refinement to which many amongst, them have subsequently attain ed, so have been the gradations under ? the progressive influence of civilised man, of the dairy cow.

FLAVOURING BAITS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 February 1906
FLAVOURING BAITS. In our issue for September last we ('Chemist and Druggist') published an inquiry for Mr. W. E. Vaughan, of New Angledool, as to the flavour most likely to be attractive to rabbits. We suggested that a number of different essential oils should be tried. Mr. Vaughan now in forms us that the best flavour of all is oil of citronella, which has the extra ad vantage of being the cheapest. Twelve or fifteen drops only put into the amount of poison carried by one poison cart wiU draw rabbits by the thousand. Experi ments have been tried by. Mr. J.T. Sher win, tne owner 01 the JNuiiawa station. He says the rabbits come out and follow the cart, and take the baits by the mil lion. Mr. Thomas J.

The saying that half a vet.'s living is got below the knees and hocks, if not strictly correct, only serves to illustrate the importance of the subject. The prin cipal causes of lameness are fractures, sprains, ring-bones, side-bones, splints, spavin, pricks in shoeing, corns, canker, thrush, sand-crack, seedy toe, false quar ter, and quittor. * * * To the hock may be attributed by far the greatest number of hind leg lame nesses, though many stablemen believe horses to be lame in the 'round bone,' by which they sometimes mean the stifle joint and sometimes the haunch or hip. * * * Lameness caused by injuries to...
A SUCCESSFUL EXPERIMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 February 1906
A SUCCESSFUL EXPERIMENT. . A great feat in the rabbit-poisoning at Cobar is reported to the Minister for Works. The district works officer in the district states that 'the swarms of rabbits which recently, infested the Springfield tank, Cobar, were beyond conception. They climbed the netting surrounding the tank, and died in the water in hundreds, even making into the caretaker's cottage for shelter. The caretaker was supplied by the local officer with iolb. of arsenic, which was used, and has resulted in the destruction of between 40,000 and 50,000 rabbits, which are lying in heaps near the tank, and thickly strewn over 20 acres surrounding it, while scarcely a live rabbit is to be seen in the- locality. 'As no timber is available close by, instructions have been issued for firewood to be carted, so that the dead rabbits might be burned. Similar action has been taken at other badly infested tanks with excellent results, at only the cost of a few pounds of arsenic. 'It is estimated ...
