NEWS FROM DIFFERENT CENTRES. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 7 March 1906

NEWS FROM DIFFERENT CENTRES. The following wires bear upon the gen eral eradication movement : — NEVERTIRE. Thursday. The rabbits have been playing up with the grass and water lately. Some thou sands of rabbit skins have been sent from here this last month. QUEANBEYAN, Thursday. The Stock Board is making strenuous efforts in the direction of rabbit destruc tion, and is calling for applications for the wire netting which is to be sup plied by the Government. Rabbits are very numerous, and are doing great damage. CARCOAR, Thursday. The stock inspector reported to the Pastures Board yesterday that many landholders would not take active steps to keep the pest in check. Every ima ginable excuse was put forward, and no thing short of drastic prosecutions would bring these people to a sense of their obligations. The board decided to act on the recommendation, and issued in structions accordingly. A deputation, consisting of several prominent land owners, waited on the board with refer ence...

WATER CONSERVATION versus BARREN JACK WEIR. To the Editor "Farmer and Settler." [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 7 March 1906

WATER CONSERVATION versus BARREN JACK WEIR. To the Editor 'Farmer and Settler.' There is no doubt that water conser vation is one of the problems that needs careful consideration throughout New South Wales. At the same time we want to avoid all useless expenditure. We want something that will benefit and not be a white elephant. The proper course to pursue is to keep the main channels or our rivers full, and that can% only be done by a series of small weirs. The people who should be first considered are the landholders, who have not the advantage of many streams running through their holdings, and who are not blessed with our average rainfall even in good sea sons' ; and they are to be found on the Lower Darling, Lachlan, and Murrumbid gee. Therefore, in the conservation of water the Government should start at the lower end of our rivers and build 'weirs wherever the surroundings are suitable. It is a great mistake to build our weirs too high, on account of the danger of a breakaway...

OLLA PODRIDA. (Political and Otherwise.) The Capital Question. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 7 March 1906

OLLA PODRIDA. (Political and Otherwise.; By Cypher. The Capital Question. As has been remarked, no practicable system of federation was possible without the inclusion of the mother State. This was freely recognised, and as a slight recognition of the sacrifices the premier State would be called upon to make for the common weal, it was conceded that the Federal capital should be situated within its boundaries ; but as a concession to inter-State jealousy it was stipulated that it should not be within a hundred miles radius of Sydney. The sacrifices were duly made, and the burden of a mil lion and a half of extra taxation through the Customs cheerfully shouldered ; but how far has the compact been observed? With a shameless disregard of political honor probably without a parallel outside of a South American pseudo republic, the matter has, on various flimsy pretexts, been shelved for five y^ars. It is now made clear that if the agreement is to be carried out at all, it will only be in...

Wherry Curtis, a farmer, of Fresno, California, had the sight of both eyes destroyed by the flick of the tail of a cow that he was milking. ' Australian farmers will never hold their own unless they are properly repre sented in Parliament, and unless they secure the erection of elevators and im proved menas of handling products.' — Mr. J. Perry, M.L.A., President F. and S. Association, at Dubbo on Wednesday. . I was very pleased with the first issues of 'The Farmer and Settler.'

OUR HORSE COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 7 March 1906

OUR HORSE COLUMN. By ' Chlldo Harold,' It is now some years since the cry was raised that the motor would run the horse off the face of the universe, but notwithstanding the advent of the motor car, the motor 'bus, and the agricultural motor, man's old four-legged friend is coiner strone-er than ever. London is about to hold the biggest horse show on record, where will be seen the pony used by the cowboy of America, the English and Indian pony, the American, English, and Continental highly educated saddle horse ; the English carnage horse and the American trotter ; the Russian Orloff and the agricultural champions ; in fact, every country and every class appears to be represented but poor, neglected Aus tralia. * * * America is joining in with enthusiasm, and Dr. Gray, an American expert who has a big say in the celebrated Madison square Garden Horse Show, held periodi cally in New York, has been for the past two years working up the London Show.

OBITER DICTA. THE FARMER IN POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 7 March 1906

OBITER DICTA. (By 'Wombat.') THE FARMER IN POLITICS. In a country which depends for the greater part of its wealth on the produc tion of the raw material, it seems more than strange the very small part the pri mary producer plays in its political af fairs. He has allowed his interests to Clllll lniO tl'.C nalius Ul tJiuui yaiutsj Mini the result that we are confronted with scandals. Royal Commissions, a rotten system of land laws and legislation run riot — every one of which weighs more or less heavily on the landholder. It is diflicult to account for this wholesale de puting of country interests to those who care not a tinker's curse for the producer —who, in fact, look upon them with con tempt or feelings near akin thereto. Probably it is that the people in the country are slow to think, and somewhat inclined to let things drift, hoping, Mi cawber-like, that something will turn up in the end. Some few drink in the grand iloquent platitudes and subtle flatteries of clever demagogue...

VICTORIA HOUSE. FARMER AND CO. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 March 1906

VICTORIA HOUSE. FARMER AND CO. The story of a success, whether it be the success of a nation, a business, or an individual, is always interesting. No business has been more successful than that of Farmer and Company Limited of Victoria House, Sydney. Standing at the intersection of Pitt and Market Streets, and also having a large frontage to George Street, 16,000 feet having recently been added in a new structure, the immense buildings are easily found by the visitor to the city, and visitors are always welcomed to inspect the interior of the buildings and the splendid display of drapery goods, clothing, furniture,' etc. Established in 1840, Victoria House has had a life of 66 years, and it has been a life of constant progress.

MEADOWBANK IMPLEMENT FACTORY. A THRIVING INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 March 1906

MEADOWBANK IMPLEMENT FACTORY. A THRIVING INDUSTRY. This week a representative of 'The Farmer and Settler' paid a visit to the implement factory of the Meadowbank Company, near Ryde. There is a rail way station adjoining the works of the Company, and the passing traveller gets a glimpse of portions of the buildings nestling among the gum trees in quite a romantic spot. But a faint idea is gain ed in this way of the extensive operations of the Company, which has an area of 10 acres at its disposal, mere are sev eral buildings, including a foundry, blacksmiths' and fitters' shops, supplied with the most modern machinery, and a capacious shed, with a complete plant for carrying out various kinds of woodwork. Our representative was courteously re ceived by the general manager, Mr. E. Trig'g, who went to considerable pains to make the visit a most pleasant and in structive one. To enter into the. details of the splendid work which is being done, by the Company would be impossible in the s...

OBITER DICTA. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 March 1906

OBITER DICTA. By 'Wombat.' ' Democracy' is about the most abused word in the English language ; it is a very difficult matter to property gauge its meaning, which in every case must be a relative one. In Australia every man can rightly claim to be a democrat, and it is absurd to see any one section claiming special patent rights in the term. But it is the old story over again— we are right and the other fellow is wrong : 'We swallow camels, others strain at gnats ; Our geese are .swans, our neighbour's swans are geese; All other people's kids are ugly brats ; Our rival's butter is always rancid grease. All doxies, save our own, are heterodox ; , All clogs are curs, except the curs we own ; And every scheme for man's salvation shocks, Except that scheme which we can run alone.' The prizefighter knows sufficient of tactics to avoid a contest with a rival of an inferior class to the one he occupies. A heavy-weight will seldom 'take on' a medium, nor a medium a light-weight, nor a light...

They may be briefly described as of two kinds — serous and phlegmon ous. * * # Serous abscesses occur in all domes ticated animals, but most frequently in the dog and cat, as the result of injuries received in combat. They occur, too, in those parts where both dogs and cats usually grapple one another — namely, on the throat, ears and face. Their forma tion is very rapid, producing great swell ing and much inconvenience, but nothing like the pain caused by abscesses con taining pu...

THE DAIRYMAN. IN-BREEDING AND CONSTITUTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 March 1906

THE DAIRYMAN. (By Frank McCaffrey.) IN-BREEDING AND CONSTI TUTION. In the 'Australasian' of 17th February 'Bruni' has an interesting- article on in-breeding and constitution, which has . doubtless been read with interest by breeders generally. He mentions, how ever, that the practice of in-breeding has been condemned by many owing to its tendency to degeneracy. 'In-breeding,' says he, 'is a two-edged sword, powerful for good or ill, according to its handling. Tt u'i'11 fiv rrnnrl mialitipc in n fnmilv nnrl it will intensity aerects. Now, if we take the dairy cow for ex ample, it will be found that breeding from ill-shapen, badly developed sires has play ed tremendous havoc among our dairy '* herds for generations past, having in most cases led to disease and degeneracy in their offspring, even when the parents were healthy and consanguinity of blood was remote indeed. In-breeding may produce disease and degeneracy — no one denies that ; but in-breeding cannot be saddled with being t...

LOYALTY ABOVE ALL THINGS. To the Editor, 'The Farmer and Settler.'' Sir,— Mr. Barry's proposition at Dubbo should serve as an object lesson to each loyal member of the F. and S. Associa tion. Mr. Trefle has now the choice between the V.P. of the F. and S. and the secre taryship of one of the committees of the Political Labor League. Those of us who rememoer the JNarrandera Conference will recollect the decidedly 'caucus' utter ings of the gentleman in question — and his tactics have been carefully watched. ^ It seemed to be an open secret that the F. and S. Association was only to be a stepping-stone to the Legislative Assem bly ; but this not coming off as quickly as was expected, some of us are wonder ing what Labor constituency will be hon ored by Mr. Trefle' s attention at the next general election. I notice the 'Herald,' in an article' under 'On the Land,' cautions our Asso ciation to g-o slow in taking a hand in politics ; but the man who wrote that ? article must have been ne...

THE CITY MILK PROBLEM. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 March 1906

THE CITY MILK PROBLEM. Without entering upon 'any lengthy dis cussion on this vexed and much-discussed question, the experience of such as are housekeepers and have children to. rear and to provide for, has taught them that they are not always fairly dealt with by their milk-vendor. When the milk, after standing all night, would yield no cream in the morning, or none worth the skim -minrr thiav.will instantlv susnect that the dairyman or the milkman has been tam pering with it by making frequent visits to the cow with the iron tail; and, after discharging this dealer in sky-blue, they are . apt. to find, to their sor tow, probably the very next - day, that they have been defrauded by a more, extensive dealer in sky-blue. When goaded on to complain, they only usually do so owing to some inexplicable difference in the flavour of the dairy farmer's cup of tea andr'their own. This brings about complications between the rival opinions of the tea-dealer and the milk-vendor, which results ...

ONE-SIDED LAW. To the Editor. 'Farmer and Settler.' Sir, — I beg to draw your attention to the closing clauses of section 7 of the Crown Lands Amendment Act of 1905, which give the Minister the right to 're- fer for determination to the Land Appeal Court, a decision of the Board on any of the following questions' :?— 1. Reasonable working distance. 2. Sufficiency of area for maintenance of a home. shall not, have allotted an applicant. 4. The position of any area allotted. 5. That nearer available., land should have been applied for. The clauses referred to would be per fectly just but for the fact that an appli cant for an additional holding is denied a similar right. If a decision of the Board ori these questions is made binding on the appli cant, then why not on the Crown ? An applicant may have ;as just cause of appeal as the Minister. Land Boards sometimes err. What a lovely avenue is opened up to the over-zealous or narrow-minded officer to harass a selector ! Yours etc., H. T...
