Quarry Reserves. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
Quarry Reserves. Information nas been received by tne Yanko Shire Council from the Lands Department, stating that it was not the practice of the Depart men to resume private lands for quarries, or to vest quarry reserves in sliire councils. Any council re quiring quarry areas could acquire such under the Act. The President said that they knew they could pur chase such areas, but the expense of purchasing and giving access to same would be great.

An Art Gallery. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
An Art Gallery. The Laclilan Shire Council is shortly to receive some pictures bor rowed from the National Art Gal lery. In order that they may be properly hung in the Council's build ing, they intend to have a moulding erected, at a cost of about £3. When the proposal was before the meeting Councillor Parsons protested and demanded that his name should be recorded on the minutes as being opposed to the motion. Councillor Ewers said that the pictures would improve the room, and probably pro duce happier feelings among the councillors.
CITY MILK QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
CITY MILK QUESTION. "Dairyman" writes:-Allow me to express my grateful feelings for tlie present you made us of the first is sue of your new journal "The Land." It has been long recognised that the Farmers and Settlers' Association would be compelled to start an inde pendent paper of their own design, and conducted in the sole interests of the "man on the land." There is much work in front of such a news paper, and no doubt the men on the lands of this great, and coming coun try will appreciate your cflorts. There are many interests to be served, however, and, no doubt, the columns of "The Land'' will be open to all classcs of producers, to give vent to their several grievances. Act ing upon this idea, self-formed, of your purposes and aims, I thought it would not be amiss or out of place to draw your attention to the milk trade of Sydney and its suburbs. The city of Sydney is growing apace, and its milk trade has been expanded so rapidly that no provision has been made for the cont...
A COOL MILLION FOR QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
A COOL MILLION FOR QUEENS LAND. ? The dairy produce sent away to London by Queensland last year totals up a cool million pounds. This is the northern State's best year so far. She is now moving more rapid ly than ever in the great industry. Apparently she is 011 the heels of N.S.W. and Victoria, if she is not right up, though New South Wales is sprinting along with great vigour. What is .all this great development going to lead to? Besides the great areas that are just ready for the be ginning of operations, there are ten times as much country equally suit able, without bothering to reckon up the possibilities of butter produc tion under irrigation. In ten year's time, . perhaps less, the output from Australia will be three times as much as it is to-day. The question which naturally arises in this connection, is as to tlie prospects of glutting the markets of Great Britain. Business experts assure us that there is no reasonable likelihood of this, as the consumption of butter is inc...
NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
NOTES. In one day recently, the Casino butter factory manufactured 272% boxes of butter, and the output for this week will be 30% tons, beating all previous records. The police returns just completed show there are 8S5 dairies and 58,114 dairy cattle in the police district of Casino. The dairymen in the muni cipality number 30, milk vendors seven and dairy cattle in the munici pality 184G. A correspondent writing to "The Australasian," says: "From practi cal experience I know castor oil to be a certain and quick remedy for warts. The oil should be applied to the teats regularly at milking time, a little at a time being rubbed on with the finger-tips. This is the only remedy used by the Arabs for their camels, and since I heard of the treatment some years ago, I have never known it to fail to effect a cure." A remarkable development with dairy cattle is recorded in connection with Mr. II. Hayes' herd at "Havi lah," Gadara. Two heifers, aged 11 and 10% months respectively, and also an...
THE SIRES WHICH DO NOT PAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
THE SIRES WHICH DO NOT PAY. Many dairymen persist in the fool ish plan of running any kind of an old mongrel bull in their herd, in the belief that they are not loosing very much as a result. If they thought the matter out, their own common sense would tell tliem that they were thus losing money. The standard of the Australian herds wants raising. We are a long way in that respect behind every recognised dairying country in the world. This does not spell enterprise. The selection of sires from deep-milking cows is abso lutely imperative if the producer wants to make any progress in his important business. Private enter prise has assisted largely in the im provement campaign by importing some of the very best stock that the world can produce, but these enter prising men are not always encour aged. The average farmer does not bestow any patronage. 1-Ie does not appreciate the opportunity to get for a few pounds the blood that has cost the breeder a considerable sum of money to origina...
GRASS-HAY, AND THE MILK CHEQUE. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
GRASS-HAY, AND THE MILK * CHEQUE. Emerald hills, with promise of luxu riant pasture, are the rule now throughout the dairying districts. Present prospects, however, should not blind us to the fact that the best of pastures speedily deteriorate. Af ter the lirst frosts, succulent green couch paddocks soon turn yellow and useless. A weak spot in our dairy farming has been the neglect to pro vide reserve fodder supply in good seasons, to tide us over bad ones. Slowly, but surely, the silo is becom ing a familiar feature in our dairy districts. But what about the small er man on the land, who cannot .af ford a silo, or the tenant farmer? Certainly silage can be made in a stack, but there is considerable waste unless a large quantity of material is available. Dairymen, who prefer feeding hay should now lay in a supply while they have the chance to do so cheap ly. Last week, i:i the ITawkesbury district, we saw prime lucerne hay being sold on the farm at 30s a ton, Probably next August th...
RAISING THE STANDARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
RAISING THE STANDARD. There is great need in Australia for some better method than is at present in vogue of standardising our stock in the dairy herds. The estab lishment of herd-testing associations is a good step forward in the direc tion of correcting present evils, but it cannot of itself create all the re forms that are necessary when the future is reckoned with. There must be a beginning amongst the founda tion herds by adopting more herd books than we have. In this respect our breeders have made but poor progress. As a breeding country Ave cannot hope to secure any standing until we give this form of guaran tee to buyers. As we are now be ginning to more and more specialise in the dairy breeds, and there is a greater demand setting up for first class animals, the time is ripe for the careful consideration of the whole question. The only way to permanent improvement is for the votaries of the different breeds to found strong associations. No coun try can become great in its n...
Roads Through Private Property. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
Roads Through Private Property. Most of the shire councils have had some .trouble during the past year or so with the question of roads through private property. Especial ly has this been the case in districts where new settlement has been going on apace. At the meeting of the Wagga branch of the F. and S. As sociation last week, a motion was submitted in regard to this matter, Mr. George Lindon moving,-"That this association urge upon the Go vernment the necessity of amending the Local Government Act to pro vide that in all subdivisions by pri vate owners, such owners shall dedi cate to the shire council such bush roads as are necessary for the proper working of such subdivision, the posi tion and condition of such roads to be approved of by the shire coun cil.' " It was explained by the mover that, with the aid of the powers pro posed to be given them under this amendment of the law, shire coun cils would be in a position to refuse the subdivisions in which the roads were not sati...
Lighting. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
Lighting. The Mayor of Young, in liis annual report, stated that the electric light is at last commencing to pay, which was due in a great measure to the introduction of the meter system. At Singleton, for some time past there has been a great desire on the part of many ratepayers to possess their own works for street lighting purposes. In connection with the subject a ballot of the ratepayers recently tooK place, with the follow ing result:-Questions submitted-1. Do you favor the municipality ac quiring works for the purpose of lighting the streets and buildings within its area?-Yes, 247; No, 49. 2. Do you favor lighting by gas or electricity ?-Gas, 225; Electricity, 60. In favor of acquiring the present private gas works, 143; in favor of acquiring new works, 140. Last month saw the completion of the Ballina lighting scheme. The interesting ceremony of turning the circuits on the town was performe.d, the Mayor (Aid. Mackinnon) offi cially naming the generator "Wee Mac." Sixty-four...
Farm Telephones. GOVERNMENT NEGLECT. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
Farm Telephones. GOVERNMENT NEGLECT. L. C. -writes: - "Telephone communication to re ,mote districts is of. vital importance to settlers, and is a question that should be taken up by our F. and to. branches and progress associations, as well as by every city well-wisher to the cause of extended settlement. A miserable policy of L.s.d. has been the bane of the Government de partments, who consider more an even bajanee-sheet, than .the welfare of those going out to make their homes lrl the great beyond, the conveniences ot the city. The fact is that the majority of new settlers are now wiser than to do as those of old, striking out and isolating themselves from their fel lows-without a thought to the draw back to their families through lack of communication with intelligent members of society. They are tired of the advice of those who, whilst grabbing the fat billets and easy con ditions of civilised life, are continu ally advising the waybacks to "go out on the land, young man.' Whil...
Substitute for Subsidies. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
Substitute for Subsidies. At the same meeting Mr. Balloran moved,-"That the Local Government Act be amended to provide: that sub sidies to shires be abolished; all un occupied Crown lands, within each shire, be valued, classified, and rated by the shire council; all unoccupied Crown lands not required for public purposes be immediately made avail able for selection at the values and classification fixed by the shire councils." Mr. Halloran contended that the sliires received a good many subsidies of one kind and another, and that there was a great deal of political influence in connection with the distribution of the money. The loss would be made up by the re ceipts suggested in the motion, and besides that the public would have brought before it, Crown land which was unoccupied. As the Government would desire to pay as little in rates as possible, tliis land would be made available for settlement. He claim ed that the councils Avere the right bodies to have charge of all settling o...
"OUR YOUNG INFANT." [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
"OUR YOUNG INFANT." To the Editor.-I have pleasure in congratuling you, and those who have been responsible with you, for having brought out such a splendid and well-compiled issue of our new official organ, "The Land," born on January 27, 1911. I am sure your efforts, and those of your staff, will be well appreciated right through the farming community. Such a paper has been long called for by the rural population of N.S.W., and (I may add) the Commonwealth cf Australia. We have now arrived at a time when it is absolutely neces sary that the whole of the rural population of Australia, and ' those who are sympathetic to their inter ests, should organise, with the view of being able to place a decided and solid front to meet the onslaughts of other organisations that are threat ening the interests and advancement of rural production, and thereby clog;, ging the wheels of all industry. To-day we stand between the devil and the deep sea. On the one hand, we see monopoly and land specul...
The Reader's View NOT A LUXURY, BUT A NECESSITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
The Reader's View ^ oo n? NOT A. LUXURY, BUT . NECESSITY. To the Editor "The Land".-A day or two ago I should have contended that we were being enslaved by the newspapers, to the publication of which there seems to be no end. Having, however, had the good luck to get Xo. 1 of "The Land," I have no hesitation in saying that it should rank as Al, that whatever the diffi culties which beset the farmers and settlers of New South Wales, under the operation of more than a score of Land Acts-tne having to make bricks without straw, or, I should rather say, produce crops without labour-having to contend with a system of government, which while importing millions of capital for pub lic works, seems to look askance at immigration, and even enters the lists against the farmers by a day-labour policy of competition for the service of the few workers left in the coun try-menaced by all sorts of unions of thoughtless agitators, who think they have discovered how to get blood out of a stone-in the...
Ferries. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
Ferries. The Works Department has asked Berry Council to take steps to pre vent the sub-letting of ferry con tracts. Funds have come in so well to the treasury of the Wagga public hospi tal, that the committee have been able to put in a claim for £1073 as the amount of subsidy the hospital is entitled to receive from the Go vernment. A new State record for wheat cleaning was established recently by Messrs. J. Stevens and H. Cameron, on Mr. E. Scruby's farm at Cummine (writes a Port Lincoln correspondent of the "Adelaide Register."). The day was favourable for operations, .i.nd the tally at the end of 9h. 20m. was .133 bags. Mr. Cameron (an aged man) did the turning, and Mr. Stevens filled the machine, "jumped" the bags, and kept the chaff cl&lt;>ar. By this latest performance Mr. Ste vens has. osatcn his own State record of 118 bags in 9% hours, which was established two years ago on clie farm of Mr. Bundle, at Paslceville.
Straying Cattle. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
Straying Cattle. The Engineer of Culcairn Shire Council reported at last meeting on the nuisance caused by straying cat tle in the streets of the shire. He recommended that maintenance man Wilson be appointed impounding offi cer for Culcairn, and that he drive all stock to the pound at Henty, and charge owners driving fees as well as the impounding fees. He believed that if this course was adopted, the nuisance would cease.
