BOGAN GATE. Standard of Wire Netting—Freight on Ditto. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 7 March 1906
BOGAN GATE. Standard of Wire Netting— Freight on Ditto. A special meeting was held on the 17th 'ult. to consider the wire netting question and decide what should be the standard in this district.. There was a large atten dance. The whole of thnsa nrfispnt hnrl had more or less experience with rabbits and wire netting. ' It was resolved by n votes to 2 that 36in. x 1 Jin. x 17 gauge wire netting should be the standard. An amendment that 36m. x 1 Jin. x 17 guage be favoured, was negatived by the same vote. It was resolved,— 'That this branch of the Association strongly urges the Gov ernment to see that the first instalment of wire netting advanced be devoted to the enclosing of agricultural lands, bearing in mind the enormous injury done to farmers and their cultivated lands dur ing the last few years by rabbits.'. It was. further resolved, — 'That the foregoing resolutions be brought imme diately before our branches with a view of joint action being taken.' If the recommendation- re ...

TURRAWAN. Divining Rod.— Ploughing.— Dairying.— Rabbits. Mr. D. Ferguson has used the divining rod very, successfully in this district, one settler1 having struck fresh water at 28ft. in country considered to contain only salt water. ' _ ? _ ploughing. This district is going ahead. Several farmers are putting in over 200 acres each this' year. The dairying industry is going ahead. v Mr. A.. Stafford is increasing his herd of 1 bo cows to 20b at Harparry, and new men are going in for dairying. ':? Rabbits are still getting^worse.

The P.P.B. is going to finish the net ting boundary between Turrawan and Baa Baa, on the railway line.
ON VARIOUS TOPICS. (Per favour of the Editor of "The Farmer and Settler.) [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 7 March 1906
ON VARIOUS TOPICS. (Per favour of the Editor of. 'The Farmer and Settler.) Sir,— The tariff is a plank of politics which the members of a conference, or a branch of the Farmers' and Settlers' As sociation., can never acree unnn. FTpnrp the Farmers' Union can never become a strong political association. An honest, straight farmer who wishes to cast, his vote for the policy he conceives to be for the good of his country is no more to be turned from his political principles than he is to be turned from the religion he was brought up in. It is folly for any man to say, 'The tariff is too 'high,' or 'The tariff is too low.' It is at the ballot box that each individual . member of the Association must say what he s thinks. Farmers cannot cast their votes like labourers, for a price, and ignore a policy that is for the good or ill of their country, according to their lights. The ?labourer in voting, in so far as he ig nores the fiscal issue, cares nought for., the good of his country. It i...

Associa tion is to be started at Balldale, neai Corowa, on Saturday, 10th instant.

QUIPOLLY. A Public Movement— Dealing With Re sorves — Closer Settlement. One of the largest and most enthusi astic public meetings ever held in Qui polly took place on Saturday evening last.

Some of those present wanted the land thrown open as a C.P. ; others wanted it as an original C.P. The meeting was at times a very lively one. Mr. W. Anderson (Mayor of Quipolly) occupied the chair, and, after a long debate, it was decided, by 26 votes to 22, that as the settlers at Quipolly had not a living area, it should be made available as A.C.P., and that the mem ber for the district be asked, to use his best efforts to get the land made avail able as A.C.P. Several ladies took a keen interest in the debate, and when the vote was taken three voted for the A.C.P. and one for original s...

THE DAIRYMAN. THE MUTUAL EDUCATION OF DAIRYMEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 7 March 1906
THE DAIRYMAN. (By Frank McCaffrey.) THE MUTUAL EDUCATION OF DAIRYMEN. | The following extracts from a letter S written by a gentleman some sixty-five I years ago from the Illawarra district to .3 his friends in England, will show how ''?I iiVicprvant men of leisure fnrm rnnrhi. sions which afterwards lead to the basis of valuable information on stock raising, and the ultimate education of their neighbours. Away back in the begin ning of the forties this gentleman took up a piece of land in the Illawarra dis trict, on which he resided for about ten years, or until the discovery of gold, when he sold out and left for the scenes of greater interest and excitement. From the gold-fields he wrote of his earlier colonial experience, thus : — 1 'In that part of this country where I was then carrying on farming, and had commenced to measure my energies with the native-born, although still widely sep arated from each other, I found life in that bush very lonely — so lonely, in fact, that it w...
DAIRY EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 7 March 1906
DAIRY EDUCATION. Modern treatises containing informa tion of value to the average dairy farmer / are, for the most part, of necessity com pilations ; but a compilation may have its peculiar claims to attention, wnere tne materials are not new there may be con siderable originality, or,'' at least, a pecu liar appropriateness, in the mode of their explanation ; and it is of no slight utility to place in a succinct or striking manner an argument which might have failed to arrest attention or carry conviction under a less happy aspect. The vague, inapplicable notions which have been published from time to time under the headings of original matter, especially of the theorist type, during the last few years, lead to nothing but con . fusion amongst those who read such trash with a view to enlightenment, and to dis cussion amongst those who have learned after many years of weary toil. To such * writing the practical man on the soil looks in vain, for help and advice on any subject outsid...
THE ILLAWARRA BREED OF DAIRY CATTLE. Its Probable Origin. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 7 March 1906
THE ILLAWARRA BREED OF DAIRY CATTLE. Its Probable Orisrin. Under somewhat similar headings, the writers of the ' On the Land'' and ' The Soil' columns of the 'Sydney .Morning Herald' and ''Daily Telegraph' ' respec tively have devoted a column each to this tar-famed breed of dairy cattle and its probable origin. ' ' *k. a, j. It has been said that geographers, when describing the boundaries of States, frequently refer to an imaginary line as a limit necessary to be traced, in the ab sence of such visible features of nature as a river or a range of mountains. Thus, in their efforts to trace the origin of the Illawarra cow, our modern writers have recourse to such commonplace accounts as that of the discovery of a certain num ber of cattle, the progeny of a few head that strayed away from the charge of their keepers in Sydney to the Camden district at the time Captain Phillip was preparing his Christianising mission for all Australia; from thence to that of a bull named 'Major,' owned...
BOVINE TUBERCULOSIS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 7 March 1906
BOVINE TUBERCULOSIS. When Professor Kock announced to the world that 'he had discovered a cure for tuberculosis the dairying countries at once looked hopefully towards a solution of one of the greatest and most difficult problems. The results, so far as Pro fessor Kock's system has been demon strated, in these States have by no means been satisfactory. However, we have our hopes again raised by the' announcement that Professor Von Behring claims to have perfected a serum which will prevent tuberculosis. It is said that the experi ments with the Von Behring serum have given very satisfactory results through out the dairying centres of Germany. ???# # * We very naturally hope that this an nouncement will prove on more exten sive tests to be reliable. All the same, we' doubt whether a serum can be dis covered which will protect a highly spu mous dairy cow from filtering away her life's blood through her udder, as all heavy milkers invariably do.

OUR VETERINARY COLUMN. By B. B. Loel, M.M.C.V.S. [Questions relating to the ailments or diseases of all farm stock will be ans wered for subscribers by Mr. B. B. Loel, M.M.C.V.S., through this col umn. A short clear statement of symp toms, addressed 'Veterinary Enquiry,' do the Editor, the 'Farmer and Set tler,' 84 Pitt-street,, Sydney, is all that is necessary. The advice or informa tion will appear in the issue following.] Wounds, Sores, etc., in Animals. The treatment of wounds is a large subject, and many books have been writ ten upon it; but there are a few simple rules to be observed which are applic to all animals, including man. Without entering into an elaborate discussion on germ theories, we may say in nothing has the healing art advanced so much during the Victorian era as in- surgery. It must be admitted that veterinary practitioners have generally a better claim to the title 'surgeon' than have the majority of those by whom the unqualified title is borne. '* The princi...

In November, 1905, I was summoned to Land Board, Gunne dah, and the chairman's decision was that I was fit to hold the land, etc. In De cember the land was surveyed. Since that time 1 have heard nothing whatever of the land. Nearly nine months have elapsed since the lodging of my applica tion.

BOUNTIFUL RAIN. GENERAL OVER THE STATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 7 March 1906
BOUNTIFUL RAIN. GENERAL OVER THE STATE. Bountiful rains have fallen over the State as a result of the monsoonal distur bance on Monday in last week. Scarcely a district has escaped the splendid falls, and general rejoicing has been the result. The fall was phenomenal in some dis tricts, the disturbance having been most beneficial over the western and central areas. Taking the various areas of the State in turn, the Darling country and the plains west of it show, in a sense, re markable falls. Wilcarmia had 350 points, Tilpa 207, White Cliffs 175, Barringun 149, Silverton 152, Menindie 128, Enn gonia no, Bourke 84. Louth 63, Went worth 61, Wanaaring, 51, Hungerford 47, Broken Hill 31, and Eurowie 23. The showers which fell over Riverina were not so heavy, but they were general and fairly substantial. The best were 124 points at Hay, 115 at Moulamein, 112 at Booligal, no at Whitton, 109 at Denili quin, 88 at Carrathool, 69 at Tocumwal, 53 at Coolamon, and 48 at Jerilderie. The other p...
