BRANCH REPORTS—continued. EULOMOGO. District Council—Loading Facilities—Reserves. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 February 1906

BRANCH REPORTS— continued. EULOMOCO. District Council — Loading Facilities — Reserves. The adjourned meeting4 was held on 14th inst., Messrs. T. H. Matthews, Tib bits Cleary, Fitzsimmons, jNIiddleton, and Field. Messrs. Matthews and Field were chos en to represent the branch at the Dis trict Council at Dubbo. It was unanimously decided that the Railway Commissioners be written to in reference to extending' the loading* bank, and also to urg'e upon them the necessity of erecting- a ten-ton weighbridge, as the traffic in harvest time warranted the same, while the increased acreage pu't . under crop every year plainly showed the urgency of the case. It was said -that the farmers, unless they brought their produce to Dubbo or carted it to Mur rumbidgerie, would have to solely rely upon the weights sent back. This de-r barred farmers from getting cash when their produce was put on the trucks, and in face of the very large improvements effected at the siding it was thought that there shou...

COOTAMUNDRA. The Wire Netting Question.—Choosing a Representative.—Police Uniform.—Appeal to the Farmers. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 February 1906

COOTAMUNDRA. The Wire Netting Question. — Choosing a Representative. — Police Uniform. — Ap- peal to the Farmers. At the meeting on 17th instant, a letter was read from the General Secretary, en closing the resolutions passed by the Bena and Womboyne Branch, respecting carriage of wire netting and the inade quacy of the sum voted by Parliament for netting. Mr. Forsyth moved to comply with the resolutions,, ,and- urged that;/.t;he netting, should be of 1 Jin. ' mesh for '12 or iS inches from the bottom and ?iiin. thence to the top, and that this be a. recommen- dation from the Cootamundra branch. He said rabbits could get through the i^in. netting. Mr. Bragg- seconded the motion, and the additional suggestion. He thought the difference in cost would be warranted by 'the effectiveness of the fence ; and he could not understand why netting should cost much more in this than in the State of South Australia. ' Mr. Douglas supported the motion. He had been present at a. recent discussion ...

FUNDS FOR RABBIT DESTRUCTION—WHO SHALL PROVIDE? [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 February 1906

FUNDS. FOR RABBIT DESTRUCTION —WHO SHALL PROVIDE? Mr. : Wheaton (Balladoran) moved,— 'That the Council take-into consideration the best methods of .providing funds for the destruction of rabbits by disease,' and referred to the suggested experiments of Dr. Danysz. He expressed the opinion that the Government should provide the funds. At the suggestion of the Chairman, Mr. vvneaton made his motion to read that the fund for rabbit destruction should be taken from the Consolidated Revenue. Mr. Madden seconded the motion, but he thought that the large landholders and financial institutions should subscribe privately for the purpose indicated. Mr. Webb (Narromine) thought that the Government should provide the funds in consideration of the Crown lands from which so many rabbits came. Mr. Patten moved as an amendment, — 'That the Government should be asked to subscribe pound for pound of the Pas tures Protection Boards for the purpose of introducing a disease for rabbit exter mination.'

QUIRINDI. Throwing Open the Lands.— Wire Net ting.— Double Dealers.— Loading of Wheat. The usual meeting was held on 10th instant, Mr. J. Perry, M.L.A., taking the chair in the absence of the President. A volume of correspondence was read and dealt with.

THE GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 February 1906

THE GARDEN. When the flower beds have been cut out and the soil brought into fit condition, it is time to set about the selection of shrubs and plants to complete the ? ar rangement. Should the soil be of a crumbly, pliable character, so much the better. If not so naturally, it should have been made free by whole-hearted, conscientious digging', and, if possible, by the addition of sand, ashes, or short manure. If it is desired to make the gar dnn n surcfiss. nn amnnnt nf frrmhlp in respect of thorough preparation can be too great. Digging at this season of the year is hard work, and extensive planting is out of the question, but there is no time like the present. The soil broken up and exposed to the air is retentive of all the rain that may chance to fall, and while much in the way of planting must be left till later, yet many plants may now be put out which will, during the months of winter and early spring, gladden the heart of the gardener. # * * The great thing is to maintain ...

CONCERNING THE RABBITS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 February 1906

CONCERNING THE RABBITS. We have received the following com munication from a correspondent : — The rabbit question is one of great mo ment to Australians, and it may be in teresting to si#ne of your readers to con sider a few facts connected with the little animal which has become so profitable to trappers, dealers, and export merchants, yet detestable to farmers and graziers. Tliprp i« nn rimiht- Mint flip Inrtrp amnunt of trapping now done for export very ma terially helps towards keeping down the pest, but it is very questionable whether this means alone is sufficient to prove a permanent check, especially as the sys tem is carried out. Trappers always have an objection to killing young rabbits that are not of a marketable size, and it is a common practice when young rabbits and does are caught, to let them go in order to allow them to grow large enough for market and to continue breeding. And very often the trapper does not set his traps close to the warrens or breeding place wh...

THE WIRE NETTING STANDARD. To the Editor "Farmer and Settler." [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 February 1906

THE WIRE NETTING STANDARD. To the -Editor 'Farmer and Settler.' Sir,— I notice by the press that the Government are asking the P.P. Boards for an expression of their opinion as to what class of netting they favour. I as sume by this that the Government in tend to be guided by the said boards. Now, since it is a well-known fact that most of the above boards favour 42m. x 1 Jin. x 17 netting, it is only reasonable to suppose that the Govern ment will order the class of netting fa voured by them. If this takes place, it will be a great injustice to many of the farmers, as nine-tenths of them, in this district, favour 36m. x ijin. net ting, and they contend that it serves the purpose equally as well as the higher netting; and since there is a difference of quite ,£10 a mile in the price of the two classes mentioned, which at the current rates would mean that the 36m. x i£ x 17 is one-fourth cheaper than the 42m. x ij x 17 netting, it would increase the purchasing power of any money the ...

WHY BE EXTRAVAGANT? To the Editor "Farmer and Settler." [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 February 1906

WHY BE EXTRAVAGANT? To the Editor 'Farmer and Settler.' Sir,— Re wire netting question : As the Government is making inquiries from the Stock Boards as to the height, mesh, and gauge to be used in this State as the standard rabbit-proof fence, I would sug gest that each Branch of the F. and S. Association should take a vote on the question. I believe we would get a truer reflex of public opinion from those who have ex perience and who are as' much interested as (if not more so than) any other class of people in the State.' The other States have a far less expe sive wire netting as their standard than this State, and from what I can under stand are quite satisfied with it. If it is good for them, why not for us? — Yours', , etc., T. L. Mundooran, Feb. 20, 1906.

A SUGGESTED REMEDY. The First Thing To Do. Writing from Collie, Mr. W. O'Connor says : — Before any more railways or pub lic buildings are erected, let us get shut of the rabbits! First let us have wire netting, and then poison, and kill as best we can — every man Jack of us on the job. Cut the big blocks of land into smaller ones, and make the biggest rabbit breeder kill his share of Bunny. Have no Government land, and keep the people of New South Wales in New South Wales, for a great many of them are now talking of Queensland. Can you throw any light on this subject, as to what will come of the land that has been bribed and swindled from the pepole, under ex changes and improvement leases? — why it has been surveyed and then taken from us — the pick of what is left. There are ten thousand acres at Trangie — fronts the railway line right from the town ; good farming land ; would keep ten families, and now one half-caste boundary-rider looks after it — but he kills no rabbits.

The mover dwelt with force upon this matter, and the immediate need to press the matter before the Minister. Mr. Perry and Mr. Patten pointed out mat the subject could be sent down to the Central Executive, and they could rest assured that the deputation from that body would urge their claim in this re spect.

AUSTRALIAN MUTTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 February 1906

AUSTRALIAN MUTTON. The writer of Sheep Notes in the 'Mark Lane Express' says: — The Aus tralasian breeders are waking up to the fact that if their mutton is to keep pace in respect to quality, etc., with the Argen tine they must use more of the English strains of blood. The adoption of this suggestion means a much larger demand for English mutton breeds, and empha sises the need there is that success should attend the efforts of the National Sheep Breeders' Association to secure a reduc tion in the period of quarantine enforced on all imported sheep into the whole of the Australasian colonies.
